I always wondered about the power of familiars in this series. Let's look at some possabilities.

1) They inherit a portion of the power of whoever created them
2) They improve through traning and, being familiars, have an excellent learning speed.
3) Their power if proportionate to whom they serve.

Of course, any of these can be combined together. So let's assume Graham was awarded his familiars as part of his position (although he was clearly a soldier, it doesn't mean he got them then)

Also, did Precia make Arf or did Fate make her. I can't remember. I always thought Fate made her. If the first rule is true, then Linnis, being Precia's familia is likely pretty kickass. And for that matter, politics asside, unless Graham lost his fighting spirit he'd likely be pretty powerful.

Arf was made by fate - Precia even cursed how her 'daughter' is a complete failure at making familiars, because this one clearly has too many emotions.

About how the catgirls got so powerful - who knows we dont really know how strong Graham is


On a side note - can Yuuno be considered Nanoha's familiar ?

The cat girls were pretty good on sneak attacks, but besides that we don't really know how strong they really are.


I mean, the first encounter, one of them kicked Chrono out of the way.

The second, one of them protected Vita from a blast but we don't really know how powerful the blast was really.

The third, one of them snuck up on Fate while fighting Signum.

And the last, Fate found one of them and did a large amount of damage on one of them(it appears), she was then hit by other one, and then quickly bound from the other one (surprise attack again). Then they bound everyone in surprise. If there wasn't two, I'm sure Fate could have taken on that one effortlessly.


They are good at trapping people in sneak attacks, but in a true fight (no sneak attacks) we really don't know the outcome.

I think in a 1v1, they'd probably lose(imo). They also depended on using the book of darkness to trap the linker cores.

Well Aria did stop that Nanoha's long range attack like it was nothing - and these attacks are Nanohas specialities, so i bet that one was pretty strong.

That time when Fate slashed at one of them in invisible mode was the only time they took damage. Granted they did use sneak attacks, but still they looked more than enaugh capable of handling a direct 1 v 1.

I still would bet my money on either of the Catgirls in a 1 v 1 fight against anyone but Book of Darkness - in worst case they would only need to hold on untill oposition runs out of cartriges

Wait a sec...
Aliya and the other cat girl are supposed to be Gryam's daughters right?
And Gryam's an English man from Nanoha's world.
If Aliya and the other cat girl are sisters and Gryam's daughters, how come Gryam isn't a cat. Dose that mean that Aliya and the other cat girl are adopted?

Why is everyone talking about what happened in the old seasons?
We should move on to the third season.
Which is what this whole chat thing is all about, Magic Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS!
Btw in the end of As, Nanoha her ponytail was wierd on the side. I suggest that they leave her hair untied or in a ponytail on the back of her head.

Everyone is just trying to get the story up to this point straight to get an idea on where this new season might head. (this is a forum... not a "chat" -- safety tip: be sure you read the forum rules since I see you've recently joined )

Suggest away... but the writers are very unlikely to see any suggestions from this forum and pay any attention to them if they did. Most of us are not the "target audience" demographic (i.e. people who live in Japan).

They'll probably leave it on the side more towards the back (off-angle). I've seen real girls do that and if they have thick hair (and lots of it) it looks pretty interesting.

Man, I'll still miss Fate's old hairstyle. It's my favorite hair style on any character. ;_;

Hmm. I remember that after blocking Nanoha's long-range attack, one of the catgirls brush off an apparent wrist wound during the debrief. I am not sure if Nanoha actually causes fracture or anything to the like though... I have no idea as to how much power they have though, although with their veterancy the familiars would be something to be reckoned with.

That said, I wonder if Lindy's abilities on her own are comparible to them? The only instance that we spot her on the field is when she personally supresses the lost logia.

Asthetics wise they designers will follow the TH tradition and off-angle like Vexx said.

Yes, i was also hoping they would leave Fate's hairstyle alone. I dont mind Nanoha's new style.

As for what we are discussing here - well we might as well discuss anything we want about Nanoha here, not only the third season. I really doubt its worth to create a new topic for each question discussed here, ne ?

About Lindy...somehow i dont think she has actuall fighting power (not one that would matter anyways)

What i would like to see is more action from Chrno - we hardly see him doing anything besides hanging arround Asura's bridge :P

And Yuuno might use some power-up as well, because as things are now all he is good for is setting up some barier (everyone can do this) and healing up Nanoha after she is beat up :P (tho now they have Shamal and she is far better than Yuuno at this :P )

I like how in all that ruckus of a end battle, the final blow was ultimately dealt by Lindy. LOL.

As for the Familliar discussion, it only involved A's and s1 because it can't involve StrikerS yet because it hasn't aired yet. We have no clue who the new characters will be and it's doubtful that any Megami before November's will have any news (although next month's is listed as having "suprising StrikerS news". So really, other than the speculations and critiques changes and whatnot, there's really nothing to discuss because it's all been covered numerous times. And Nanoha isn't quite popular enough to get it's own board so this stuff ends up here, as it is relevant to Striker S. Discussing things like the familiars and building a loose "power scale", however flimsy it may be, helps us to decide who the key players will be.

This directing style is very unique. It sets up numerous possible situations but still stays very to-the-point, likely because the series needs crammed into 13 episodes.

But who knows? Maybe since A's made such good cash for them, Striker S may be longer.

If Nanoha wins saimoe, maybe we could get one

They actually were discussing power numbers in season one (ep8) but they stopped doing it... perhaps rather wisely...

With Nanoha, Fate and Hayate working in different areas, going to 26 might work okay... I just hope they can budget and manage the longer series as well as the shorter ones.

Well that image makes me think of the Lindy we never got to see.


And another Nanoha, age 15...

I'm kinda thinking that Nanoha's original Barrier Jacket looks silly on her at age 15. It was modeled after her elementary school uniform, so it was all fine and dandy back then. Now, though...I'm hoping that Nanoha has a sleek new Barrier Jacket, or if anything, a sleek variation of her old jacket.

Remember this prophetic image?

On the bright side, Nanoha has the best all-season 'costume' out of any magical girl there are out there.

Nanoha's Mahou Shoujo(MS)-Outfit defies conventional designs in that it is actually conservative, and because of that, I found it quite refreshing. Fate's MS-Outfit however, retains the philosophy that the more skin you show, the less damage you take.
