Oh, and given that Zafira is the only male shown in *any* of the RAW scans I've seen, and that there has been serious discussion that he isn't even able to go "human"... Yeah. Add that fact in with LINDY SHOWING UP, BUT NO CHRONO. And in all likelihood Shiro, YOU KNOW, NANOHA'S FATHER, not showing up either...

I'm having a hard time seeing what I can find to enjoy about this Yu-Gi-Oh rip-off spin-off.

Dude, calm the hell down. He's probably busy somewhere. If AMy's old enough to not go to school, the same could be applies to him.
Hell, he's probably a cop.

That game that's quite central to the story? He's the guy who invented it. Also the father of Amitie and Kyrie, and the one who houses Stern, Levi, Dearche and Yuri.

In other words: The most plot-central character of this chapter.

Or they erased him entirely. We don't know either way.

Good for him. I can't say that I care very much at all.

First point: So stop overreacting. It's not set in stone yet, so everything's possible.
Second point: That was uncalled for.

My point is, he's a guy and the most important character in this chapter. If the only comparison to Saki is "there are no males" then he shatters that comparison quite magnificently.

Not sure how it's uncalled for. ^^;

...I'm quite certain you know very well what we, or maybe just me, were meaning.

Given that apparently I'm misunderstanding you, it seems I don't. Could you explain just what you meant? Less talking past one another that way.

This is speculation, but looking at the way the whole setting is set up, I can safely guess that this will differ from Yugioh a lot...

For one, this looks like a game where you play as yourself. No creatures, mostly spells. Sure you can have trap spells, instants, sorceries, enchantments, but no spell-crafted attackers. Unless you're a summoner, then you get to summon a minion.

Another difference: team combat. You fight in groups of 5 v 5, each person being 1 mage. I deduced this because Nanoha team has Suzuka, Arisa, Fate, Alicia and herself, maybe +1 Amy, while Hayate team has Signum, Vita, Shamal plus Reinforce and maybe +1 Rein Zwei? Poor Zaffy. Florian team has all 5 too, and maybe +1 Yuri.

The card might function as a deck, but so far I see no one drawing from it. If anything, it might even be a Spellbeck, as in, Becky's Spellcards as seen in Dog Days.

(Becky's name really goes with a lot of things, doesn't it? The Beckshin, and now Spellbecks...)

Probably 5 main and 1 reserve.

Okay, so it's a Vanguard rip-off spin-off.
Besides the Materials and Florians, I'm seeing nothing I will enjoy. And even then this all is close to ViVid. ^^;;;

Lyco... Don't like, don't read. Is someone pointing a gun at your head forcing you to read? Is someone taking your soul/GF/whatever hostage and told you to read? No? Then don't read it. Simple
Stop ruining it for other people. Let them form their own opinion of the series.

You mean a Nanoha manga might actually feel like another Nanoha manga? How shocking!

But honestly, to call a show a rip-off of a cardgame show because "it has cards!" is silly. By that logic, the entire Nanoha franchise is a Sally the Witch rip-off for having magical girls.

Which part of no creatures did you not understand? There are no Japanese card games that have no creatures as standard before this.

Sorry, had a bit of time to cool off...took longer than I wanted for it to.
Apologies for any sort of antagonism in my statements, that was unintended and wrong of me.

Just hopeful for certain characters to show up, or a healthy amount of focus to be given on the Materials and Florian sisters...since they are honestly the only ones I'm interested in, if this goes the "usual" way, a la the rest of canon.

Judging on how Nanoha Series treat male character...

The odd of him being pushed to the sideline and forgotten is kind of high....
