Since Nanoha likes it Super Robot flavor, I'm guessing this is a homage to Zeorymer "Jigen Renketsu System" Dimensional Linking System

It's a system that allows the user to generate energy from countless parallel dimensions, theoretically giving the user infinite power.
yes having that as a kind of source of power for rejuvenating a planet will make it easier but still difficult to impliment.

Random price check on all items involved in GOD box.
Nanoha A's Portable Gears of Destiny game by itself is: 4980 yen equals roughly to about $63.17.

Nanoha A's Portable Gears of Destiny GOD BOX is: 12980 yen equals roughly to about $164.66.

Three Nendoroid Petit figures, the three Materials. 2100 yen a figure. So a total of 6300 yen, roughly $80.84.

1 Weiss Schwarz trial card deck. 1239 yen a trial deck, from the prices I found, roughly equals to about $15.39. This one includes the playbook, quick reference guide and standard playmat.

Next three are rough guesses...though guessing otaku-ism in Japan, these prices may work.
1 ANIME shower curtain. Which could range from $30 to $60 because it's anime related.

1 Anime Air Cushion. Yet another item that could range from $15 to $40.

1 Special DVD. This could range from $20 to $50.

2 Promo Weiss Schwarz cards, on the market these could cost alot because of the rare numbers. Price is gonna be skewed as heck.

1 DLC code, if released on PSN could be 800yen, roughly equals $10.26.

Let's add some of this up.

$63.17 for game
$80.84 for the Nendoroid Petits
$15.39 for the Trial Deck
--------
$159.40, just for those three, that's the value. Add in the other 5 items, and you get probably about $75 to $160 more in stuff. Give or take if my guessing range is correct. So you can say that it would go from either roughly $235 to $320 if cost of the GoD box reflected the actual retail of all the stuff separately.
---------------------------

Weight for the box itself and how quickly you want it will skew the price for shipping. If you do normal shipping through post office, won't cost as much, but you will have to wait 2 to 3 weeks for it to get to you. But if you do like Express shipping or FedEx or something similiar, the price will skew greatly based on weight and maybe size of box, upside is you can get it like maybe in a week. I did the latter and it's worth the price I had to pay, considering how much stuff is in this GoD box.

Well I went with SAL, which is the lowest option. However Amiami offers both registered and unregistered options and I went with registered so I got a tracking number. I guess the total cost of the item impacts the amount of insurance put on it.

Edit: lol at repper, though since it's being shipped from Japan it would cost the same to send it to the US as it would to send to Canada. Though I guess I'd get screwed more with the exchange rate =/

Alright! I'm back in good form today so I should be able to type out Sequences 6 and 7. If it goes well enough, I'll include Sequence 8. Watch out for it in just an hour or two! >:3

Nanoha and Fate do kick your asses but that's mostly because Chrono can't keep up with a Buster spam and Fate goes horribly fast and the twins are slow.

Levi contacts Amita at the end of the Sequence.

Too much infodump , my little Japanese knowledge trembled at the words being said.

LOTS! of info xD!

I'm almost sleep so i'll make a better comment after some hours of good rest xD.

For now i can say that i also really like the developement the Wolkenritter is receiving here, even the cartridge system is playing an improtant role xD! The bad blood between the Lieze Twins and the Yagami-ke was treated ina very plausible way, Seeing Tsuzuki being able to pull off something like this gives me hope for the future of Force(as the Huckebein family have done various things some of the main cast won't let go that easily).

The history of the Florian sisters is also interesting as also the revelation of the "Shuten no Sho". But the most interesting piece of information i managed to identify is the fact that Kyrie mentioned that U-D and Examia only exist in "this" timeline, will this mean that the origin/source of the Book of Darkness can be different in other timelines?

Also the anti-U-D system seems to be some kind of power up because it gives the four upgraded mages a good advantage over usually strong adversaries. I liked Signum's professionalism against the Twins but also the fact that she seemed to be in an arkward situation(probably she wanted to say many things but she knows it's not appropiate for the current situation nor usefull in reaching any kind of resolution), and it makes sense that Graf Eisen and Laevatein can be upgraded with this since it's a system rooted partly in Ancient Belkan technology(it will be cool if somethig like this were used in Force to upgrade the two armed Devices as apparently they're too outdated to receive the 5th Gen upgrade. One can only dream xD).

Apparently the next moment of shine for the amazing Florian sisters is about to come so i'll stay tuned xD!

Go Aaron! xD

Dammit, I love the PSPverse. Can't they just animate this instead of wasting time and money with those rehash movies?

The story of the game is surprisingly good in my opinion as it mange to cover up the loose ends from the anime. One thing that is interetsing is that the Florian Sisters' father might have been a good version of Jail as mentioned before but he is still a little crack. Who would create gears to heal the world in the form of two little girls whom can grow despite being like the numbers?

It's Book of the Purple Sky, Aaron

紫天の書

It's also Dearche's signature color

Dearche -> Purple Sky
Hayate -> Night Sky
Reinforce Zwei -> Azure Sky

..

maybe is Reinforce Drei will be Dusk Sky, Dawn Sky or Twilight Sky.. xd

..

So hey you know that Levi contacting Amita? It's at the end of sequence 8, not 6.

Laith and Aaron are wrong, news at 10.

Noted that, Laith.

And thanks for the trans, Key Board! Updating the storyboard.


P.S. Sequence 7 should be up within the hour.

One of the Lieze Twins, I think it's Lotte, really hates anything that is related to Yami no Sho cause of all the most recent deaths that it caused, including Chrono's father. And Lotte basically has spats in general with most of the members of the Yagami family, using excuses of either them being possible Dark Pieces or during the tests to fight. What the Lieze Twins were more expecting out of Hayate-chan was hatred rather than the forgiving attitude she's carried afterwards. Lotte doesn't like Hayate-chan's attitude very much cause of that, while Aria is the more understanding of the two but also expected hatred rather than forgiveness. The hatred the two were expected, they believed it would be put on them and Ex-Admiral Graham.

If she doesn't want to be unstoppable, couldn't she give up Examia and become stoppable? Or less destructive?

In her own words, "U-D can't exist without Examia"

But Examia has the one with the "Unlimited Linking Mechanism" furigana if you want to be precise

U-D's furigana is "Unbreakable Darkness"

I suppose it's like giving away your heart. You just can do that.

According to Dearche:

Examia and the 4 materials were originally one being.

Think of them as different organs
