So Elio visits Graham for advice?

Graham: *motions for Elio to come closer*

Elio: "Yes sir?"

Graham: *whispers*

Elio: *nods* Yes...

Graham: *more whispering*

Elio: "I understand sir! I'll keep that in mind sir!"

*Salutes, then runs off with BIG, sly grin on his face*

Chrono: "What did you say to him sir?"

Graham: *winks*

Chrono: *nods* "I understand sir."

Hence this leads to Erio's smart play with Vita in Skane's 2nd '4Koma'

You know, it occured to me that we are being very malicious to poor Erio here. Smearing his reputation with tar and feathers (and dragging it thought the filth of the River Styx) before we even get to know him better. I guess first impressions do matter a lot after all.

Natch.

In any case, here's a few of my thoughts on Elio:
As I said, he moves oddly. I'm not sure if it's a natural or unnatural thing, but it did not look like he was trying to use Sonic Move. Furthermore, it did not look like he had good control over it. I think he was caught off-guard from its use, and then acted the best he could given the circumstances.

Next, I did not think he would use Sonic Move. Rather, I didn't think that would be a part of his style. Looking back to what we've seen of him prior to that, it makes more sense. It looks like he takes alot from Fate; in the opening it's shown that he uses a lightning attack. I believe his fighting style will be a combination of Fate's and Signum's, focusing mainly on the offensive aspects of the pair.

But it's THIS particular first impression

Doesn't matter to me though, all the more reasons to like this show's characters

Just a recap of previous posts...
Spoiler:


*almost dead from laughing* Gah... Are you guys tryin to kill me from laughter!?

......

Please continue!
Though honestly, Fate would not take kindly to what you guys are doing to her little brother.
First impressions are more powerful than I ever imagined!
The last thing Erio needs is being able to commentate on one of Chrono and Fate's (or Nanoha, or Hayate, considering Chrosuke(be)'s specialty) sparring matches, with the 'victimized' girls listening!

I'm not even sure if Fate treats Elio as a younger brother or as a son. As a mother I am sure she would not want that "naughty" brother of hers to corrupt her child.

Unless....

I'm not sure if you folks have already noticed, but after watching the OP with a proper avi, I realised some things.

1) In the part where the newbies are shown with their respective team leaders (and doing the uniform-changing thingy), their names and the names of their devices are found at the bottom part of the screen.

2) It appears that Subaru's Revolver Knuckles are not the only ones that does a spinning attack. If you look carefully at the part where Eriol lands and pierces the ground with Strada, you'll find that its "blade" area is also spinning aka like a drill.

? I checked this part of the OP, but the blade is not spinning.

Cheers.

My assessment of Erio has improved somewhat after seeing him this episode. Seems like Carol will be the dead weight in that squad =\ I mean, she's even wearing a Final Fantasy white mage cloak when we meet her, and at best she might have medic abilities, since no "instant healing" spells exist in the Nanoha universe it seems

And I wonder how Nanoha knew that Subaru was trying to copy her spell? I don't think she heard her shouting out the spell name. But Subaru's Divine Buster didn't look anything like Nanoha's...

I don't know about that...

If there's one thing I've learnt, is never underestimate little girls...

Take Nanoha for example, back in the first two episodes of season one, I bet nobody would expect her to grow from that, to someone who nukes anything that doesn't go her way without (much) hesitation...

If that doesn't convince you, remember that the scariest thing in any horror game/movie is the "little girl"...

Caro also has a "pet" dragon. Her personal ranking may be C+, but it matters not if she can get Friedrich to "evolve".

Cheers.

Caro also is good at support magic, expecially those of "boost"(enhancement?) category.
While she might be weak herself, she would be invaluable to team if her presence can make team's strength tenfold.

If there's anything I learned from MMOGs, it's never to underestimate the importance of a healer. Or a support class, for that matter. Buff the party to uber levels, debuff the enemy to uselessness, and it's a cakewalk. Besides, I'm not sure if they've actually mentioned what Caro's abilities are; maybe she's just as much a blaster as Nanoha.

Also, technically there is at least one near-instant healing mage in the Nanoha-verse: Shamal, in episode 12 of A's. If it's not actual healing, then it's probably some sort of MP-restorative ability.

Caro needs to be at least be able to cast Haste then . I was thinking that if her pet dragon can morph in to a bigger Dragon in battle and cast frost bearth that will be win.
