"Replacing" Zafira lets him pursue a hobby, like teaching karate.

Also, a big and obvious bodyguard makes people pay more attention to Hayate as someone who might have good reason to need a bodyguard, which can alienate her from potential friends while also drawing attention from the very sort she might need protection from.

Yuuno is much lower key, and will draw none of the wrong attention.

Also, being followed by a puppy and leaving that puppy to walk home on its own is also suspicious.

Indeed. I once saw a dog cross the street on the crosswalk on its own.

We need to find some way to get him back in the show. Lord knows we need more male charcters.

Has it occured to you though, that Zafira likes being a bodyguard? And that, to him, it is a hobby?

Also, just because he's good with defensive spells does not mean Yuuno's a good bodyguard.

I mean, it is good that people appreciate Yunno, but I think it is a bad idea to shaft someone away just to bring him out. It is unfair to Zaffy and I like him. He is also a victim like Yunno, so it makes no sense to shaft him away.

Like Keroko says, I think Zaffy likes being a bodyguard to Hayate and at the same time enjoys teaching karate to kids as well. No reason why he can't fulfill both roles.

Undoubtedly not going to happen in canon. The only consistent male character is Bardiche. Thoma doesn't quite count, since Force is mainly about him...and he still is getting pushed aside. =.=;;;

I wasn't thinking about shafting Zafira, I was thinking about arranging more time for him to be teaching Arf.

Which would mean giving Arf more "scenes".

So you're telling me the most consistent male character is actually an "it"

I find solace in the fact that Veyron is getting to do a decent amount of badass stuff and is also the only Huckebein aside Arnage with something remotely resembling to a personality xD

I still don't see how Force is pushing Touma aside.

Until Touma just takes him apart with his protagonist powers the next time they fight.

The Aces get almost equal billing with him even though he's a new character that hasn't gotten the chance to develop much.

I guess they're refering to his role until Ch. 15. But i'm more positive about him right now, hpe that what we've seen in the G.O.D. game is actual foreshadowing of his developement xD.

Y'all know there was once a pretty cool guy that was able to block off both Nanoha and Fate despite having less PEW PEW power but due to mad skillz. He was also promoted to admiral of a cool ship which for some reason never sees that much combat. Have you all forgotten about him? Well, I know Tsuzuki has.

Equal? Thoma's still deeply involved, if not central to the majority of Force's plotlines. That's not 'pushing aside' by any standard.

He happens to have the power that the villains do, just bigger and badder, and maybe has a grudge against one we haven't seen yet. I'd hardly consider that 'deeply involved' or central to anything. The Aces are the ones actually in charge and making decisions. He's nominally the protagonist, but that's it.

He's got the critical item the bad guys are after, has a special type of eclipse important to the Hucks, he carries a tome of a type seen wielded by only the leader of the Hucks and befriended a reactor central to the bad guys research.

He's in the center. Deep in the center.

And the Aces making the decisions means he's not the main character? Yee, I guess that means Nanoha, Hayate and Fate were just side-characters in S1 and A's, huh?

And what's been focused on recently? Thoma's training, ie, his growth as a mage. He's still very much center stage.

All of those except one are powers he happens to have that aren't indicative of his character at all.

I was speaking more in terms of his character. Him growing stronger is kind of a given in this sort of series.

This... makes no sense at all.

He has powers and items very important to people important to the plot. That makes him central to the plot. Characters central to the plot are main characters. It's really that simple.

more like his growth as a warrior/soldier as he's not exactly a mage per se. But yeah he was always in the middle of all this. The only big difference is that only recently he started to do pro-active main character stuff instead of being a passive main character.
