Perhaps the StrikerS team start out with the weak-at-first non-AI Devices, then they get into a really tough fight, then they get a set of brand new high-powered AI controlled Devices afterwards?

That's from watching too much Gundam. :P

Or... their devices could be upgraded with AI for improved performance, which is more likely.

or maybe they can afford to pay more voice actors to say "yes sir" or "standby ready" in horrible (but suitable) english

I still don't see much difference between Intelligent Device, Armed Device and Storage Device.

All of them seemed as intelligent as Raising Heart and Bardiche, so it must be something else that makes them the class of device that they are.

Here's my rough take on the differences between the three, based on Wiki info and my own inferences:

Storage Device:
- Only two modes (storage and active)
- No sentient AI, only voice interface

Intelligent Device:
-Three or more modes
-Sentient AI

Both would be Stave-type weapons designed primarily for spellcasting.

Armed Devices:
- Typically built as weapons, used mostly for direct combat as opposed to spellcasting
- typically equipped with cartridge system

Note these are rough definitions, since there's much variety (IIRC KlarWind is classified as an Armed Device despite not fulfilling the above parameters.) I have noticed a peculiar pattern though:

-Armed devices tend to have dormant forms reflecting their true form, i.e. Graf Eisen looks like a hammer and Klarwind still looks like a ring, whereas Intelligent and Storage devices have vastly different shapes, i.e. Raging Heart's a sphere and Durandal's a card.

Again though, this definition is muddled by Reinforce, which is classified as an intelligent device ^^;;

Examples of Hybrids:

Raging Heart Excelion and Bardiche Assault: Spellcasting type intelligent devices equipped with cartridge system, not to mention Bardiche is quite effective at melee combat.

Judging from the loadout of Subaru and the others, we'll be seeing more classification defying devices in the future.

There's 8 chapters of the A's manga.

I think the distinction of the "unison device" is that there is a unison between the device and its wielder. I doubt it's just "an upgrade".

and this is the time when wiki is useful

so actually you can choose to combine with the device or use it as an external weapon ~ pretty nifty ^_^ ~ lol just imagine chibi reinforce poking the eyes of some mean bad guy ~ cute!

What if she had the capabilities of R1? To steal magical capacity from a third party and use it as her/her master's own...

Well, I guess Hayate would become unstoppable so it's not likely.

Good news, it looks like Nanoha & Friends are still in it...

As Chapter 3 has been translated, and it will makes things a lot less concerning.

I was thinking more of the physical device itself than Reinforce herself, but yep oversight on my part

And Chapter 3 translated? Link plz!

Nanoha has a love of honking-big cannons I see...



"There's no such thing as overkill."

Cheers.

ADD] That's Signum in the last panel, for those wondering.

ADD] ADD] On an interesting note, that infamous image of bloodied Nanoha turned out to be real, and not just the fickle imagining of Vita. Vita was recalling a memory of a past mission where Nanoha got injured, and Vita was blaming herself for it. I really, really want to find out the whole story behind that.

You can always tell who Signum is because her hair looks like chicken pox.

STFU&D.

Kidding, kidding. But seriously, I think the toner (is that what they're called?) looks better than that dark shade of pink. Unnatural anime hair colors should stick to very light, pastel-ish or very dark, off-black shades IMO.

And thanks for the links to both of you.


So the Velkan style is lost now, huh...

And I feel real sorry for anyone who Nanoha OPFORs for.

Thank you for uploading.
Now I'm very curious about what happened to Nanoha. This gives me bad feelings...like because of that accident she won't live very long. Could this be a bittersweet ending for Striker S?

I doubt it. It isn't as though it's the first time Nanoha's sustained possibly life-threatening injuries. Besides, THOSE THREE WILL BRING LIGHT!
