Wonder why it seems only females have such powerful magic and linker core though.
I think Chrono gets paired with Nanoha less for that reason and more for it being the original pairing from Toraha.

And females aren't the only one with powerful magic and linker cores--just look at Zest. He was an Over S-rank before his death at Cinque's hands.

*shrugs* Well, in my case given I'm gay, it's more a matter of seeing something more relevant to me. I know it won't happen, obviously. Or anything vaguely like it, unless Chrono gets cloned and becomes female somehow due to an error in the cloning process (which would be missing the point entirely for me, on a number of levels, but won't happen anyways, so no worries).

Zest is in fact a very powerfull and impressive male knight but he form part of the minority xDU. He and presumably Scaglietty are the only male S-rankers of the show so far.

Of course, Force is doing wonders to solve that situation. Probably the EC Drivers will need their own rank system but so far Deville and tohma are pretty darn powerfull while Veyron is a bonafide badass. Also Mr. Vandin seems to be a pretty competent man of bussiness and the Raptors are all male-looking.

Apparently Tsuzuki finally noted the lack of testosterone in the cast xD!

You can find enough Chrono/Yuuno out there. Heck, even I've written some fics with that pairing.

Oh, I know. Meant I was just explaining why I like it. And I don't think Scaglietti is S-rank. He's smart, but pretty sure he lacks any real magic power. But yeah, Zest is a good example of a powerful male, as is presumably Graham for a pretty strong one.

I feel that we're kinda tracking off a little bit here... I thought this was a GoD thread.

You're all wrong. It's obvious that Chrono has a man-crush on Verossa, Amy realised that her Reverse Hikaru Genji Plan is in dire states, spiked Chrono's drink (and her own Twins Assurance Potion) leading to the shotgun wedding, thus anguishing Verossa to decide to lean his preferences towards Yuuno. That's the reason Chrono's so tsun-tsun on Yuuno, but Chrono can't kill him because shit happens if Yuuno dies. Plus Verossa won't make cake for Chrono anymore if he does that.

Now I'm just waiting for Sister Schach to realise her Hikaru Genji plan is exceeding expire date and it is her turn to borrow the potions from Amy to spike Verossa's Christmas Cake.


Where's Verossa anyway? I mean... he's been like... literally useless to the franchise, even from a 'off-screen character relevance' status.

It is odd... how much of a role they gave him, only to just pretty much have him vanish. I mean, he at least had somewhat noticeable of a role, enough that I remember him, but he hasn't even been mentioned. What with Vivid dealing with ancient Belka stuff, you'd think it'd come up.

Isn't he the vice-captain of whatever ship Chrono is now the captain of?

No, Verossa is an Inspector and works for a different branch.

There's a cousin trope to that one, now. PBG refers to a cast that just happens to be primarily female, but the new one refers to a situation in which this selection bias is especially bizarre.

For example, before StrikerS, it was a PBG. As of StrikerS, it seems like the world honestly doesn't have many strong male mages, or almost all of them dodge the draft.

Of course, when these games are involved, I tend to go with YuunoxMaterial-S/Stern/"Seikou"...

I wouldn't mind it, though I'd want them to have at least as many bonding moments as Yuuno and Nanoha first.


And yeah, Verossa is useless.

So Stern pretends to be Nanoha, grows a bit of hair and dyes it?

Verossa is far from useless. He may be isn't as flashy or strong as other characters but his hellish dogs are pretty usefull and also he can force mind reading on people which is an extremely valuable ability.

No, I don't see Stern doing that. One thing, she is proud of herself and who she is. She acknowledge Nanoha as her original and respect her fighting abilities, but she doesn't want to be Nanoha.

I think he means they could have made that ability a non-unique one, given it to say, Chrono, and not had him be a character at all.

He means, as a character..

He's like one of those guest appearances in fighting games.

Or make him a woman like the rest.

*nods* Actually, seems like a good ability for Yuuno, since it seems like something he could have developed through his library related stuff. Mostly just seems like he could have been a character that... well, was already in existence. Or if they had to make him, do more with him. I mean, at least... I can't remember her name, but the nun still appeared in Vivid, and I think Verousa's sister appeared too, albeit briefly. Just seems... wasteful. Of course, so was the sniper, and... well, guess I just feel they introduced a bit too many extraneous characters.
