Left or right, I thot the Aces were ambidextrous? After all, they keep switching hands! (Might also be due to the infamous animation inconsistencies. )

No, not really If you pay attention, Nanoha usually holds Raising Heart with her left hand and Fate holds Bardiche with her right hand If they change hands during battle it doesn't matter much anyway since it's for spellcasting, magical offense and defense, but notice that they don't change hands for writing!

Yeah. I didn't notice it until yesterday when I was watching the dubs. I can't believe I didn't notice it before. The creator is very sneaky...

Spoiler for Evidence 1:

Spoiler for Evidence 2:


Spoiler for Evidence 3:


You have to look VERY closely...

Oh, and another thing. I believe that Nanoha being LEFT-HANDED and Fate being RIGHT-HANDED was on purpose. Same with Fate wearing BLACK and Nanoha wearing WHITE. The creator did say that Nanoha and Fate do compliment each other....

...this also made me realize that the loli-uniform design of Nanoha in the movie is a sort of reverse engineer of the Aggressor mode. Like the Wing Gundam reverse designs modeled off Endless Waltz versions.

Version Katoki reference?

Does Nanoha ever use Starlight Breaker Ex? If so, in which episode?

Also, is there a definite decision that out of the two, Starlight Breaker Ex and Excelion Buster ACS, which one is stronger than the other? So far, I've just seen that they're both arguably the strongest.

If by Starlight Breaker Ex you mean Starlight Breaker Plus, she used it in episode 2 of As and in the manga. And never again. It really strains her to use it at all, since it's got a barrier-piercing function with it.

The Excelion Buster ACS might be slightly less powerful, since it doesn't strain her to the point of passing out like the Starlight Breaker Plus does.

Well, if by Starlight Breaker Ex you mean Starlight Breaker Excelion, then I think that's episode 12 of A's.

Starlight Breaker plus isn't only used then, in A's and after every starlight breaker she does with a cartridge is the equivalent of a countdown starlight breaker.

Except that I don't recall Nanoha ever using cartridges with her Starlight Breaker.

Ever.

I don't think Starlight Breaker CAN be enhanced with cartridges. Not with how it works as a spell.

If someone could translate this I think all our problems will be solved.



We really need to get those booklets translated one of these days...

One-off translating feels far better than staring at those massive text walls in the booklets.

Truly the final trump card in Nanoha and RH's arsenal.
RH...XD

So it seems, I've yet to find a translator brave enough to help me get this translated. All I can do so far is gather up whatever has been translated and archive it, hoping to one day have the full thing so I can edit them.

Oh well, tanks for the translation. That settles it, then. SLB EX is gathering magical energy and spamming every cartridge Nanoha has. I can understand the strain bit now.

So, Nanoha has three versions of Starlight Breaker? Oi!

Girl, do you NEED that many variations?

Actually this variant only comes in with the new additions/modifications to RH, who wants to wait for charging time with cartridges waiting to be expended?

As many as she needs to get the job done (to achieve maximum power, total destruction).

Four, technically. Regular SLB, SLB+, SLB EX and SLB Blaster 3.

So yeah, like Nagumo said, as many as she needs to achieve maximum destruction.

Was Nanoha and Nanoha A's a success here in the United States? Or at least close?
