That is certainly an interesting... and amusing... analogy.

For some reason, I do think it as a most apt description .

Btw, while re-watching #10 on nicovideo, this comment caught my attention:

"Maybe he was in the same unit as Tia's brother?" (well, something like that.)

This was directed to Vice, and while it might be a random thought, I feel it might have some truth in it. Maybe Vice isn't really hitting on Tia, but is more like looking after her. Perhaps the way her own brother would have looked out for her.

Of course, judging from Vice's big-brotherly attitude to everyone in RF 6 (including Hayate herself), this might be something that he would naturally do. But here's to a thought nonetheless.

Could be an interesting development, though I have no idea why he'd keep that a secret.

Yeah, I thought so too. But as you commented, he might just be the "big brother" kind of character, so there might be nothing else in it other than a nice guy looking out for everyone.

Well his not really a knight just yet... But by "Loli" standards, he's pretty much Lancelot already

So as such a knight, it's not strange that Erio have such luck with women, lovely ladies at that too.
I wonder what else does the "Fate" project do for him...

Wow compared to previous weeks things are moving slow. I guess lacking something controversial like the past couple episodes does lead to less violent discussion. But fine that the discussion is more relaxed and positive in comparison.

Noticed from the preview that Erio wasn't taking care of the loli any more. Maybe Caro didn't like him spending so much time with another girl so she 'took over' and he was to hold onto the relic.

With all these speculations about Vice being from the same department as Teana's brother, I wonder if he was also a combat mage. He DID say that Teana's skill was enough to make him jealous.

From the official site.

I can see him becoming a last-minute mage due to personnel shortfalls after this foreshadowing...more male awesomeness?

IIRC, Wasn't there a mention here that Vice was a former mage?

I dunno... I lost some words in translation during the Vice Tea talk, but it doesn't seem to blatantly outright mention him being a mage. Seems to imply he was one, yes but hell if my hearing can be trusted.

If he is one, it brings up the question of how good is he as one...

Yes there was, Teana mentioned whether he had mage experience, and his reply was essentially positive.

To quote him, 'Well, I started out my career as an armed member(a la grunt) so I can at least give rookies some pointers.'
And also he was talking about how Teana had gotten more receptive and flexible during training

Man he doesn't know how to spell death, he's still implying that he's looking at them?

Something about Velka style summons and boosts, Rein as a unison device can link up with others as work as a power manager. The way I see this is that she not only increases their magic strength by can actively concentrate where it's needed. Hazard a guess that Lutecia's bugs being Velka based work on the same principle. They link up with the larger drones and concentrate one aspect of their combat power [speed, harder shields, ect].

MC boosts add to the power of an object by channeling more energy. It's slower to cast because of the ceremonial spell, works on a single unit in exchange of additional layers of power.

Velka adds and focuses the existing energies in an existing system. In essense a mass boost to a group that works immediately, though weakening other aspects is just speculation.

Now the image of Rein as miniboss is cute in a fairy sort of way, imagine the girl sitting on mini-Fred as a dragonrider to boost his Blast Flare

While on this topic I wonder if Rein can only link up with those with a direct connection with YnS. This seems likely given they in theory should be more "compatible". However I do note that there is no metion of Zafila.... everyone is seems to forget the poor dog

More random tidbits...

Uno mentions that all the type 1 drones that were seeking out the 2 relics were destroyed.

I wonder this is a hint of the blonde's power. Drones come, crack open life support pod, girl comes out and smashes them all instinctively while lugging 2 heavy Relic boxes.

Regarding the above discussion, could it be that she merges with the devices consciousness? It might explain the lack of Zafila since he doesn't have a device.

Nah, he probably just left her in the case of TSAB personnels... Most likely he would visit her later...

Won't that be a treat

Hmmm, I should spend more time on this Erio = "Loli distress sensor" business

Nah, it could be something as simple as a 'commoner' being envious of a mage.

"Transport Section"

Doesn't sound like something a mage would be doing...

An armed member? That might be around A rank...


Slip of the tongue

Maybe she smashes them WITH the two heavy Relic boxes
