I could have sworn there was a real-world mythological reference in there somewhere but Wikipedia isn't turning anything up. Guess if anything it's just Nanoha referencing El Hazard.

Wasn't Al Hazared where the genie's lamp was from? I mean in the actual story, not the disney thing. I'm very sure it has some connection to a place in middleeastern mythology. I'm remembering something about a dude with snakes for hands or something like that. Darnit, my memory is shot. And google turns up a bazillion hits which may or may not be retared, even more if you count the different ways it can be spelt.

'Alhazrad' is the name of the Necronomicon's author in Lovecraft's stories. Al-Hazared is an alternate spelling. But that's not 'real' mythology as academics use the word...

That's the problem with using the internet for these searches; fictional uses of a name swamp the historical and literary... not to mention the people who can't spell 'hazard' correctly. If it wasn't so cold I'd head over to the library to check it out... maybe tomorrow.

Edit: Okay I went through pantheon.org and they don't have anything on it so I'm guessing it's not of mythological origin.

No, he was the author of the Necronomicon.

I can always weasel out by claiming I was referring to the Gates themselves rather than the ability.

Nice to meet you too.

Does Shana's Rival Who Was Too Unimporant For Me To Remember actually have the same hairties as Hayate or is that some sort of jokepic?

They said 2007 spring. Spring season on Japanese TV means end of March beginning of April.

Since they call themselves Knights I'd guess they're primarily associated with Belkan culture and space.

Of course, we don't really know how ubiquitous the TSAB is and to what degree it is synonymous with Midchildan government and culture, but it seems pretty high so I'd guess that the Church is distinct from them.

Yo, Darko. Welcome to the boards and long time no see. In that I think we've never seen each other before. And I know how you feel about "unimportant" Yoshida. I'd remember that rack... er... smile anywhere.

Anyhow, until an official word is given (which it hasn't been yet) I'm gonna hope for January. A's release date was a suprise in that it came half a month earlier than the official word at the time said it would. Hopefully the extra months gave them lots of time to prepare for StrikerS.

Xellos - Yeah. Remember though that Nanoha fans are not only rabbid, we're starving. So unlike stuff like Typemoon which has a much more rabbid, much bigger fanbase, our's is just kind of backed into a corner, ready to devour the tiniest snippits of information in a furious feeding frenzy. We band together because that is what our white-clad leader teaches us to do when dark times loom.

出展決定 is a bit more closer to display/ing comfirmed i think, I guess they do plan to get strikeS on air in winter/spring with the release of new nanoha manga and such.

Still thinking back at the end of A's i still can not belive we got another season of nanoha goodness
