New Chapter out.

Stern uses Cute Puppy Eyes on her King!
It's super effective!


Stern, why are you so perfect

Takamachi style at its finest

It's actually sad that Nanoha's main character trait is her beamspam and large buster beams, when she has so much potential as a swordswoman using her family's style.

Well she got THREE sword-like weapons in FORCE, just wait for the right moment for her to go Takamachi style on one of the Huckebeins xD

And she trains with Fate Testarossa since the age of 9, who was already an incredibly powerful swordswoman who could go toe-to-toe with Signum at the time. It'll actually be stranger if she can't wield a sword with such strong martial arts influence everywhere.

It might be fanon, but I imagine Nanoha being very defensively focused with her sword play or in melee combat at least (should it be staff play?), and using it to play for time for enough ambient magic to gather when up against melee combat specialists, before putting more distance between her and the enemy to blast them again.

Which means that you aren't going to break her defense in melee unless you are a Fate or Signum tier swords-woman, and even then, you probably aren't going to be able to get pass her defense before she once more get's some distance to blast you one more time. If Nanoha stood up to Fate on a straight up, sword vs sword fight, no retreats allowed, no ranged combat allowed, she'd eventually lose, though it would take quite some time.

And Nanoha excels in prolonged fights - her spell repository reflects that, starting from how her signature Starlight Breaker works (by gathering ambient magic from prolonged magical combat).

So yeah, reading over the translations I have access to... Apparently talking animals in this universe is a common thing. They can transform into human form too. No explanation given.

... Wasn't this manga supposed to take place in a [relatively] normal universe?

Also, Intermission 2 is absolutely hilarious.

"Learning how to fight with a sparring partner who uses a scythe" and "learning how to wield a sword" are two vastly different things.

Probably it's because she prefers knockout by magic blasts than knocking people unconscious with a melee weapon.

Well, if it makes you feel better Nanoha also seemed to have fought agaisnt Signum a good deal of times so she also have some experience.

Fate and Nanoha sparred in the A's movie using bamboo swords. Honestly, they've been trying their hardest to retcon Nanoha being terrible at sports. If this was the series, Nanoha would stand no chance against Fate in non-magical sparring. Though I guess Fate was doing all of the tricky maneuvers while Nanoha was mostly just defending.

I find it silly myself, given Nanoha's preferred method of combat (shield, bind, blow them to pieces from a distance) but I guess people want to see Nanoha carrying on the Takamachi tradition. And she did look cool stabbing that cup.

They probably realized a White Devil should be at least competent in emergent beam saber combat.

Also, STERNKASTEL >>> EVERYTHING

Maybe, no one's looked at it yet. Me, I'm waiting on the translations.
