No pansying around and just hitting the enemy in the body or anything like most other shows. Just straight out, efficient, merciless headshooting. I believe she also went for a head shot on Lutecia in the episode where they rescued Vivio. Man, she's ruthless with the gun.

I think this just made her my favourite character. Like the wise words of a man...

"BOOM! HEADSHOT!"

The only thing that could have made it even better is Tea going for the third headshot, Trinity's "dogdge this!" style.
Regarding that, I recall something from the manga: In a chat with Hayate, Nanoha mentions that the Stars (Subaru & Teana) are pretty reckless and unpredictable when combating, then Subaru & Teana are shown with a "One Hit KO sign behind them (then Hayate mentions that they resemble the old Nanoha, since she aimed for Full Power when casting any spell xD).

Subaru is really agressive when fighting, so I won't be surprised if Teana is just mean and merciless (I mean, that time when Nanoha got mad, Teana's attack went overboard for a training session). But, if Teana has something going for her, is that precision when she really focus on something: that misfire on subaru was due to over stressing, but when she thinks clearly, her shots are deadly.

Well, magic headshots aren't the same as headshots with physical bullets.

I mean, Vice shot a kid in the freaking eye, and she just lost use of her eye for a while. I doubt Teana's shot are in any way lethal.

I was under the impression the eye is dead even if no genuinely visible scars remain. That, or that eye is prosthetic.

And clearly the shots can be lethal if intended to. The shot that Teana fired at Lutecia that was shielded by Garyuu was strong enough to break off a piece of his shell. Along with all that magical damage ~ physical damage talk as well for magical attacks.

It still looks clouded, but the fact she "had" to wear an eyepatch before, to me, means it was healing.

And yes, I'm sure magic shot can be made lethal. But my point was, just because it's a headshot doesn't mean Teana is going for the kill. And even if she shoots pretty hard - she may just be counting on her opponent's defense for the shot to not be lethal.

About the girl's eye, the lack of the usual "eye shine" seems to indicate that it's a prosthetic. Made to make the girl look less like a one-eyed freak. The patch could indicate it was newly installed and it needs some healing, therefore, eye patch. My own view though, however.

About the "counting on her opponent's defense for the shot to not be lethal." thing, I still find it takes a little bit of ruthlessness to aim for the head. Ruthlessness doesn't mean that she was going for the kill, even if it's pretty ruthless.

Say you see one guy punch another guy in the gut, and another guy punches someone else in the head. Both aren't going for the kill, but who's meaner?

That's my point about the headshots.

The one who punches in the gut. The other guy doesn't want to play around and is trying to win with a minimum of fuss.

(More seriously: head, gut... Hit what you can, and worry about the details later.)

Ye I also thought that the girl is still blind - nothing a little cyborg tech cant sort out, with the added bonus of having xray vision

About Tea's shots, i dont really think that she put a lot of magical energy it those shots in the first place. If you look, they didnt blow up on contact or anything but rather "spashed" out like it was fired from a water cannon or something. Her aim was to make sure to knock them out (which didnt work for the number with lightsabers - gah i cant rmemeber her name ). I dont think Tea is being anymore rutheless than the numbers are...and heck if it failed to knock them out she risks getting decapitated (so why take the chance?)

She might want to keep it as memento (like a kind of trophy) since Zest must be similar to powerful/worthy prey

or it was just damaged way beyond repair.

it could also be proof of a battle grudge, ie gundam seed yzak's scar and vow to defeat the strike gundam.

Yes but there's no need for her to do that since she won.

*Looks at your sig

Ginga's so sexy in that skin-tight sentoukijin suit.

Makes Subaru look like a kid in comparison.

Well, let's look on the bright side.

Now that most obstacles are gone, maybe 25 will actually have a decently paced fight for once without relying on much h4xx, despite it's h4xx-screaming title.

Well, as long as nanoha doesn't make it like Subaru and spend unholy amounts of time talking to Vivio and getting ridiculous amount of flashbacks...

(Though a bit of follow up from the other groups would be nice, but not that it'll matter...)



GOD SAKES, NANOHA!! BE WHO YOU ARE MEANT TO BE!!!! FORGET WHAT CHRONO AND YUUNO SAID ABOUT SAFETY !!!!




P.S - Full release is pretty much going to be the h4xx

I fear that might happen tbh...

nanoha: "vivio! remember who you are!"
vivio: "I am the bringer of death, thats who i am!"
nanoha:

knowing how nanoha doesnt want to hurt vivio, im not putting my hopes up too much for her to go full out killing mode...(shame imo )

Geez... I'm away from the boards and enjoying the show perfectly fine, and check back here and find all this complaining! Maybe there's something to that "shows are more fun when you don't read the message boards" theory.

Then again, it could be because DC Comics' recent storylines are making StrikerS look like Shakespeare in comparison...
