Composite, as in combined score.

Yuuno could've scored a C in offensive power or as a ground mage, but maybe his aerial and / or support skills is S+ class. Thus the average score is A.

Yuuno is not a ground mage. He can fly. Without a device, may I add.

He was the one who taught Nanoha flight.

Cheers.

Which is why I put the C grade for ground, but S+ for aerial. Just because he can fly doesn't mean he can't work on the ground. Everyone starts earthbound.

The ability to fly doesn't mean that you're automatically an air mage.

In the TSAB system, an air mage is a mage who can both fly and engage in air combat effectively, which, due to power and experience requirements, ends up as a Mage who's A-ranked or higher. B-rank and C-rank mages have flight ability but are not as capable of engaging in air combat as air mages.

You can consider the GF fliers as the equivalent of an Army Aviation Brigade - Apaches and Kiowas, compared to the "fighters" that are AF mages.

Question: Why aren't more Nanoha-fans watching the show Macademia Wasshoui considering the show is just as nutty as an average Nanoha-fan? Just wondering.

Is that a "question" or you are promoting?

Well to answer it, probablyu because I had never heared of it before

But if it's Nanoha-style, I'll probably gave it a chance, gonna check it latter it's alredy 1:23 AM here and I need to sleep -.- zzz

I can't speak for all, but while I may be as nutty as the show, when I watch anime I like to watch something with a little more... serious a story-line.

I mean, its a funny show, but the only parallel between Macademia and Nanoha is that they both center around magic.

I believe the Japanese pronunciation is Elio, though for politically correct English speakers, Erio sounds better. It's the same when they pronounce Fate as Fato (spelling?). No offense meant.

To add to PhoenixFlare, his ID card and the website both call him "Erio."

We can't actually take the website as "official" spellings, however. If I recall correctly, they list Zafira as "Zafila", whereas "Zafira" is the approved English spelling.

On the other hand, quite a lot of the other names do correspond with the website ("Harlaown", which I still think might have been intended to be "Hallahoun", but oh well. When they give you a list of approved spellings, you use it!)

I've got away with spelling 'Haralown' for several months and nobody stopped me...

In the end I believe it's whatever you want it to be as long as people recognize it.

Yeah, but they care slightly more how it's spelled in the official release, right? ;p

Isn't that mostly due to the fact that there isn't really an "L" in the Japanese language so when Zafila is pronouns it sounds like Zafira because the "L" turns into an "R"?

That explains the source of the r/l confusion (as usual). But the point here is that, while the website matches for most of the characters, it doesn't match for Zafira; therefore we can't assume its spellings are "official" for any of the StrikerS characters.

Okay, here's a question. What's Fate's military rank, if she has one? She's always listed as just "Enforcer," so is that a case of:

(a) Enforcer is a funky Naval rank that the TSAB happens to use; it's a fictional setting so the rank titles don't have to track real-world ones all the time; or

(b) Enforcer is her position within the Naval investigative architecture and she has a rank but nobody ever mentions it; or

(c) Enforcer is a title similar to, say "Special Agent" in an FBI-type system. That would imply that Fate's job is similar to, say, NCIS, which operates under the overall aegis of the Navy but is staffed by technically nonmilitary agency personnel.

Anyone know?

From what we've seen so far, this one seems to be the most accurate, except for the later part. Fate is pretty much a Special Agent, but she's still military personnel.

Hmm, some canon check, please.

Did SSX mention any details about Subaru's posting? Is she permanently stationed in or around Cranagan, or is she in one of those mobile units that move around a lot? Was her rank (in SSX) mentioned as well? Likewise for the Nakajima Numbers, was anything mentioned about which unit they are afflicted with? Genya's 108 Squadron or somewhere else?

Much thanks in advance (_ _)

Why don't you ask her yourself?

But no; 7Arcs, like most women aren't forthcoming with their ages, but I'm guessing late twenties to early 30s.
