I meant Chrono and Shamal (she uses wind in Gears of Destiny).

Hell, he only cast one spell involving ice, and that was because it was absolutely necessary at the time. You can't judge any pros or cons about the element from that.

One character each, Aki. Reread the sentence. As for characters who use ice magic, we've actually got two.

Reinforce Zwei on the other hand is pretty skilled with Ice Spells, the ability to create small icebergs in less than a second is pretty awesome and again, once created, Ice gains the properties of a phisical chunk of frozen water xD

But well, going back to topic, since it's a game maybe Fire magic will receive some benefits to compensate it's disadvantages in a sort of the clasic "elemental rock-paper-scizors" card games usually have xD

Hayate has an ice spell, Chrono has an ice spell. Zwei would hopefully be around here somewhere...

Oh, right.

We've never seen what kinds of spells a dedicated person could do with that element, at least.

Well, being a little picky, "ice" has been stated as not being a true MCA so i don't know how much it counts as elemntal magic. But i guess being able to compress and froze large amounts of water out from thin air is worth of merit o.o

Lightning, Wind and Ice become almost self-suficient once caste while fire must be constantly mantained by mana or it goes poof xDU

If a mage specialized in "heat" rather than "flames" then THAT will be a power people should fear. Heat is somewhat immaterial and few things can counter it.
Actually, fire is most consistently presented as the strongest offensive element out of the four in most fiction. It's just rarely displayed as anything but offensive.

Flame is generally pure offense, at rare times purification is used with it.

Lightning is often paired with wind, and tends to be about speed.

Ice and water are an obvious pair, and often have defensive and supportive spells as well.

Earth tends to be defensive focused, and has notorious habit of being terrible at aerial fighting.

Also, flame and heat go hand in hand. For obvious reasons.

I really like this manga. But is there a sequel to the first chapter?

After looking at some scan from what I assume to be the latest chapter, I believe that Reinforce is actually enjoying Hayate's fondness for her breasts. ◔ ◡ ◔

Well, sound stages did reveal she didn't have a problem with Hayate groping her. IIRC she said Hayate could grope her as much as she wants.

To describe the scene, Hayate pretty much motorboats her, and Reinforce gains a blissful expression.

It's only been a couple chapters; I wouldn't expect anything deep just yet.

Meh, that joke's been there since the first couple seasons. Of course they'd use it in this.
