I know the pic is too small, and it's probably just me but the one of Fate with the white collar where it looks like she has her hair tied back, resembles Signum's look a bit ^^;

Im afraid that the kinghts will suffer the same fate as most of the DBZ cast - they just are there to stall the oposition while the main forcie arrives/gets revived/finishes their preparations

Well, Fate and Nanoha are the stars of this show, right? Well... maybe. I'm not entirely sure if they are the stars... But if they are, then it will be just as you say.

I got to thinking...what if in the first episode, this happens: The Knights are kicking the bad guys' butt, an uber bad guy appears and beats them up, then the episode ends with the Trio showing up to make the save. I know it kinda sounds like the first episode of A's, but it sure is a winning formula if you want to hook in the viewers. I wouldn't be too much in favor of the first episode being like a recap of the last 6 years. Something like that can be put in bits and pieces later in the series just to fill in holes where it's necessary.

Thats what most likely will happen - followed by the trio getting their arses kicked :P Honestly i wouldnt mind a recap, but that is unlikely to happen at the first ep - its not something majority would want to see, and they want people to hook on to the show

It *is* a sort of "combined forces team" now.... Nanoha is the long range artillery, Fate is spearpoint flanked by knights with Hayate in the intermediate position providing logistics and airstrikes. Yuuno, etc are intel-analysts.

They're going to have to think pretty hard to come up with a group to face this team (assuming that they don't have internal strife issues).

There's several things that could be done... overwhelm the strike team by isolating them, hamper communication, strike before they could respond at whatever objective set...

The chances of this happening would actually be quite slim according to the setup described in Megami since Nanoha, Fate and Hayate all work in different sections of the force and have assumes different positions and authority.

Nanoha is primarily a combatant trainer. She's supposed to be off the front line for the most part.

Fate was compared to as a police detective, whom is assigned to assignments on a per mission basis, occasionally being able to command more officers.

Hayate and her knights are a special task force group which specialises in hunting down Lost Logia artifacts and is said to have special authority in deciding what they can do with them once they found them. So for the most part she and the knights are their own team.

I think it would be more likely that a series of clues and incidents will lead Fate and Hayate going onto the same case, and eventually forced Nanoha to join them later on.

Well what I can imagine happening is that Lindy comes back into field commission due to the gravity of the situation that her old crew has gotten themselve into. Not sure how would the heroine's friends will be involved with whatever coming their way.
Based on the conclusion of A's, Nanoha performs dual role of trainer and investigator so I doubt she'll be out of harm's way. Fate seems to have subordinates (as does Nanoha) although I don't know if they have pernament assignments.

Meh, that'd be horrible. In DBZ, every non-sayian character were useless in battle starting at the cell saga and forward.

I hope the knights and so are nearly as strong as Nanoha/Fate still.


What I want for the next season is teamwork(backing each other up, etc), in A's everyone was fighting 1v1 most of the time. In the first two episodes Nanoha fought Vita 1v1, then Fate vs Vita 1v1, then Yuno vs Vita 1v1.

There was that double team on Vita with Fate and Arf, but that didn't last long.

The fight in episode 12 was the closest thing to it, but it wasn't really against someone who actually fought back.

I would love to see that. Corraboration and combat coordination on the ground would be great. Nanoha S1-S2 are basically mostly if not all solo fights. It would be great if the aces don't take all the attention to themselve during skirmishes and continue with unforseen elements interfering in battles as with S1 and S2.

No Vita Vs Yuno is not equal
Shamaru Vs Yuno is more appropriate

Vita would smash Yuno like a bug if they ever fought seriously. >_<;

Well, it was trying to but with 3 of the team concentrating on defence/support, every time it tried it got cut down...

Anyway, yes, I would like to see more team tactics... though it can get rather confusing.

Anyone would smash Yuuno like a bug. heck, even Shamal would crush him. He had trouble with that whimpy Jewel Seed back in episode 1! He might be good at research and creating wards, but he just isn't cut out for combat. Heck, pretty much all guys are lousy magic warriors. The only boy we've seen in either series that was a passable fighter was Chrono and he was all aghast at Nanoha and Fate's ability.

Providing the directing is good, team tactics and wide battles can be very well done. It's largely a matter of mapping out who is where during the directing process. So long as you don't loose track, your fight will rock!

And yeah, Yuuno isn't exactly the Rambo type. He should hang around Zaphira and Chrono more to pick up at least some combat skills.

Hey! Maybe he was visiting Nanoha's family dojo in secret.

*Yuuno turns into human form infront of the family (minus Nanoha)*
Yuuno: I want to help protect your daughter, Shiro. Can you teach me how to fight?
Shiro: I accept everything at face value. Sure, I'll teach you.

Then he could fight even while in Ferret form! It'd be like watching Yoda kick ass, except smaller!

Same as what was said at end of A's, if I remember correctly. I wonder how long she's been teaching combat training for (mostly magical combat I presume)... I also wonder if she's gotten some weapons training from her family - they could probably give her advice on general training as well.

I hope we see Nanoha in action fairly early on - if she's just doing training, in most circumstances she'd hardly have a chance to cut loose. One idea I had is that maybe she takes her students to a planet with some low-grade monsters for some real world training (rather than pure simulated combat), but something goes wrong and so Nanoha steps in with some super-powered attacks to save her students. And maybe, the others in other worlds are encoutering unusual events as well... which eventually converge.

Since Nanoha is teaching combat skills, maybe we could have a situation where she's directing her students, fighting as a team...? Could be interesting.

Yeah, Shamal would probably be able to beat Yuno. She'd just create some portal, then you'd see a hand sticking out of Yuno's chest like with Nanoha in episode 2. Then she'd take the linker core and smash it up to bits. Then beat Yuno up with her awesome martial art and ninja skills.

I really like Shamal, she is my favorite knight, I'd huggle her!
