14 April 2007: Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS

Teana and Subaru
Teana and Subaru race for the finish.

Okay, first of all, I can't help but think of Subaru as a dude. This is not exactly the most feminine Nanoha character around. Even the reverse trap girl from Idolm@ster Xenoglossia looks more feminine than Subaru.

Imminent death
What we have here is FAILURE to think ahead.

Teana seems okay. I keep thinking she belongs inside a GIANT ROBOT, though.

Teana and Subaru
Teana and Subaru recognize their predicament.

Fate and Nanoha look a lot better animated than in the early promotional art, although Fate looks kinda horsey in the ED. Other times she looks like Sawachika Eri from School Rumble cosplaying a magikal girl.

Nanoha probably knew they would screw up.

But what I really want to know is what Fate was about to do at the end of episode one. I mean, we have Subaru going, "LUDICROUS SPEED!" and Teana is like, "OH SHIT, NO BRAKES!" and Nanoha goes, "Raising Heart, ACTIVE GUARD with HOLDING NET, hoorah," and Raising Heart is all, "Raising Heart? more like RAGING HART, my dear (ha ha, I kill me)," and beam spams accordingly.

Active Guard with Holding Net
Jeez, Active Guard with Holding Net is your answer to everything, Takamachi Nantoka.

Then we see FATE leaning out of the helicopter with her arm already powered up, while Hayate is busy looking for the right page since books don't have CTRL-F—not even magic ones, but FATE had to get out of her chair and open the helicopter door whereas Nanoha was already standing by since we all knew these new characters would find someway to screw up, so FEITO is all, "Ah, never mind. Goddamn magikal blue balls."

FATE and Hayate
"CRAP. We were just about to do something this episode."

And we never find out what Fate was planning on doing to save Teana and Subaru. Whatever it was, I bet you it was going to be AWESOME. Way better than some dumb net. AWESOME is the only way Fate knows how to do things.

In other news, I hope StrikerS has Fate returning to her glaring-down-at-people-ominously-while-standing-on-light-poles ways. Maybe once we find out SPOILERS is back, and Fate gets to re-live her childhood traumarama. I bet you that YOU KNOW WHO isn't dead, yo.
