But if used correctly, there's no harm for the user.
It is also can be considered advantages since not everyone can utilize em so less danger/accident.Plus it is easier and faster to control the dmg output suited for different situation (compared to switching from handgun to machine gun or rocket launcher )

You could beat the crap out of the criminals (controlled to do magic dmg only) and still able to be interrogated later

Makes me wonder however if it is possible to kill with pure magical dmg... there must be some limit as to the amount of magical dmg a person can take in before reaching a dangerous level...

This is from what have been aired so far... While I wish I can be more selective I guess it will be same as last season where I ends up with 30 or so series between me and few friends... I do like suggestions on the must watches, other then then the standard moe series or 2nd seasons...

Basically, Magic is more versatile than physical weapons. Hence putting more funds into researching it is a more cost effective decision.

Another advantage over physical.

Normally, I would check out 75% of the new shows first before deciding... But since it's impossible from where I am...

I'll just go with face-value and pick,

Spoiler for OFF-Topic:

Probably, since usage of magic strain the user body.Excessive amount of pure magic bombardment might also be able to kill the target just took much longer.Assuming the magic attack damage and drain opponent's linker core completely(or drained from defending) , the extra magic damage would eat up the body next.

Many of you have been asking for a shot of the Claudia. It's too bad they decided not to make a full profile shot of the ship in this episode, so you'll have to settle for this:

I'm sure we'll get a look from a better angle before the end of the series.
Here's a view of the top, towards the stern of the ship.

And here's a look at the bridge.

A Trimaran? Spiffy

And seeing the Arthra there brings back memories

As expected, the warships' general design still remains the same.

Though the word 'Avalon' keeps screaming in my head

Main difference seems to be the 'prongs' the extend forward of the ship are now oriented vertically instead of horizontally like on the Arthra. The upper prong seems to be integrated to the main hull while an extension joins the lower prong to the hull.
The 2 exterior pics are enough construct a complete exterior view except for the top of the upper prong and stern of the ship.

Is it just me, or does the bridge seem much less "grand" and much more bland and functional? Less curves and more straight lines and angles on the inside, but the outside is very different.

The numbers don't use magic to fuel their weapons

It's confirmed in episode 13

What are they using? probably quantum science. Unless you want to argue that quantum science is magic too. Which is possible.

The A's manga confirmed the spell casting as a mathematical process happening inside your mind. Using imaginary numbers, perhaps?

Episode 14 also confirmed them to be sentoukijin, or war humanoid literally. Sentoukijin has apparently appeared several times in the past and the numbers are using the latest technology of it. This seems to suggest that they are a type of banned weaponry from the past which are upgraded with the latest achievements.

As for the preference for magic.

judging from our own present day word. public image has become very important.

perhaps magic with its gentler image (cleaner, less lasting collatera damage) is favored by many sides of a conflict because of this

fighting battles needs resources and sponsor and if your perceived image by the public is too violent that won't do you any good

That depends on the "image" you're trying to project. If it's "the nice, clean guys" that's all well and good. But if it's "the unbeatable conqueror", are you going to let such trivial concerns like environmental-friendliness get in the way of your victories? I don't think so.

behold! the square root of negative three

despair before such an incomprehensible number, euclidean minded mortals

har har har

on a more serious note

we know that people like Scag exist and just a few years ago a war humanoid was responsible for the death of ginga's mother

so those things are still out there

Your not alone, the bridge does seem less "spectacular" or "grand".


The thought of magic being related to mathematics is very possible. Mathematics is part of everyday life and its true.

Anyway I think there will be a conflict within the dimensional bureau waiting to happen. Possibly Hayate's own squad will have to leave the bureau because of conflicting interests within the bureau's higher ups. With that Ginga and Subaru might have to fight against each other but that is very unlikely. It's just a thought crossed my head after watching A's again for the hell of it.

Does everyone think this is possible or not possible?

That was then, this is now.

I would imagine that Magic technology has come a long way from what it was 75 years ago.

The only internal conflict they'll have is with Ground Forces. But the Navy and the Church got their backs, so it won't fall to that stage.

Even if they got 'kicked out' it'll probably to stay off the radar so that they could Interfere better when the 'attack' begins.

True, but what about Subaru and Ginga, it's very unlikely that they will fight each other but it's possible. Besides that there is the other possibility that Ginga will "join" or help Hayate's squad if they did break off from the bureau.

The only thing the would force those two to fight would be a situation that involves their mother. In the heat of the moment where they have to make a choice on whether to arrest or kill her muderer. Something like that.


P.S - I've just watched the episode, assume me general comments were more or less the same as everybody else, but I do want to add this...

Zafira didn't even get to talk ... That is just rock bottom

1. Erio
2. Chrono
3. Acous

Yah Zafira needs a little more appearances but at least Chrono is getting more show time plus I'm happy that Chrono's voice actor is the voice actor for Kyon from Suzumiya Haruhi which is great!

Yeah poor Zafira just making a cameo appearance. It's just not easy being the dog after all.

True at least Chrono has shown up. He may not be in a fight yet, but at least he's been showing up. Long as he sticks nearby something should crack and he'll slip right in. Guess they tracked him down and have been keeping tabs on him so he doesn't run off again.

He is not just showing up but showing up in personal one on one meetings with a cute girl while his wife is at home minding the kids
