Somehow I don't see Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate worrying about how their mage rankings put them and care more about the results of using that power..

I would have thought that was obvious. The armed device initiates the spell itself, not the mage, otherwise it would be too late by the time the mage reacts for it to be any good

"Those that can't keep their own partner safe, won't be able to protect anyone."

Next part I'm not entirely sure on as I don't want to spend the time on it, but the recommendations let them do something 3 days from now. I believe they are both given special permission to train at the main office, despite failing the exam is what it is. So starting next week they will have a whole new set of strict sempai's to meet she says. Then they get offered a spot in Mobile Group 6 of course.

So apparently Teana and Subaru are still Rank-C mages then, but their actual power level is around Rank-B.

I don't think so. I understand that there are some automatic spells(Raising Heart's Protection spell in the first season), but using a movement spell like that without the user's explicit activation can be incredibly dangerous.

In any case, I remember reading somewhere that the mage ranks in Nanoha goes between F and SSS. I forgot where I read that though.

I took it more as, the device knows their master well enough to predict what they want to do, or there is a mental link that lets them sense what action the master wants to take. At any rate, I'm sure the device only readies the spell, and it's still up to the master to mentally use it.

Hmm Elio seems to already have his Armed Device and probably already passed the Rank B exam.

Might he actually be the most experienced of the newbies?

I thought the episode was quite solid, if not terribly flashy and dramatic. I did enjoy the airport disaster flashback. I winced a bit when Fate blasted through the wall.
I kept picturing, " oops, my bad, looks like I wasted some civs. "

I have to agree that Hayate's transformation in mid-run was damn cool .

Finally, a Mahou Shoujo show that doesn't interrupt the action to show a stock footage transform sequence

Points also for Carol _not_ going off into a hissy fit for Erio's slip-of-the-hands, after he saved her from a nasty spill. Minus a bit for Carol's ditziness. I do hope that Friedrich's usefullness is > being a kawaii creature for the show.

I'm half cringing/half laughing at Rein's appearrances though. I mean, does she _really_ fill out her role as a _Seargeant Major_? Grizzled, weatherbeaten veteran she is not. I mean, what Sergeant (Major) would be caught going "Wai! Wai! " o.o Afterall, a noncoms supposed to be the backbone of a troop, providing the breadth of experience and confidence that keeps the troops on their toes. Rein's still learning on the job, as it were.

I'll have to wait for a fansub, before I get any of the dialogue. I'm looking forward to Subaru and Teeana's, and Nanoha and Fate's discussions.

Code:
Looks like the official inspection of the unit is up next time- why are Carol and Erio standing next to the cooks!?

I think Bardiche would have warned Fate if she was about to shoot someone through the wall.
Remember how bardiche detected Arisa and Suzuka in A's ?
They were a few blocks away, yet Bardiche spotted them.

About Rein and Hayate: Hayate's book is the Tome of the Night Sky, while Rein's is the Book of Heavens. Besides, being SS or S+ doesn't affect the three girls' friendship. My thoughts on Elio:

Elio: Chrono nii-san. I'm home.
Chrono: Hi Elio. How was your day?
Elio: Chrono nii-san remember that trick you taught me?
Chrono: The Sonic Move one?
Elio: Yeah that one. I tried it out today
Chrono: So? How was it?
Elio (thumbs up): It worked.
Chrono: See? I told you it would
Fate suddenly arrives in time to listen to the last part
Fate: Onii-sama....
Chrono: Ah, Fate! Don't sneak up on me!
Fate: Elio go to your room.
Elio: But Fate nee-san
Fate puts on a really scary face
Fate: Eliooooooo......
*Runs faster than the wind and locks the door in his room once there*
Turns to Chrono
Fate: So Onii-sama?
Chrono (thinking): Bad, bad, extremely bad. The only times she calls me Onii-sama is when she's about to skin me .
Chrono: W-w-what F-F-Fate?
Fate: Come with me, Onii-sama.

I'll leave the rest to your imaginations

Smoke intelligently....and please get your facts right before you become another joke of the day again.

Yeah... Me, Skane and LoweGear already explored this

With just one minor problem... 'Sonic Move' is Fate's move, not Chrono's ...

As for my imagination...

Fate: Come with me, Onii-sama.
... Is probably not the same as what others would be thinking...

Who's to say Fate didn't learnt it off Chrono? It would make my story credible

Well, that might be true, but I'm inclined to believe that it's an upgraded version of her Sonic Form...

... One where she doesn't have to shed any clothings to gain speed.

It's practically "Shunpo"

If you are referring to what I think you are thinking, isn't there a comment on their website says, "Is this some kind of late April Fools' Joke? It's an rar of Genshiken Manga."

So, if the new group is to be called Riot Squad 6 or something, do they ever mention why it's the number six? That implies numbers one to five or something.
