Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha ViVid episode 06

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid - 06Its Nanoha’s Blue Team against Fate’s Red Team. Vivio (Blue) squares off against Einhart and loses again, though Vivio managed to get a counterstrike on Einhart before going down. Vivio is forced to withdraw to Lutecia’s support position to heal up. Fate (Red) battles Erio to a draw. Rio (Blue) faces Corona and after a tough fight, wins. Tia (Red) battles Nanoha, who easily holds her own against Tia. Subaru (Blue) battles Nove in a draw fight. Tia orders Einhart to attack Nanoha. Nanoha is surprised by Einhart’s skills, but captures the girl. Einhart breaks free, shocking everyone, but Nanoha puts her down, forcing her to withdraw to Caro’s position to heal. Tia launches a major attack on the Blue Team as she and Nanoha prepare to take each other out.

Thoughts/Review:

With no enemy to fight, the only way to get some action is to have the girls (plus Erio) duke it out. I have no problems with that, even if it is mostly for action service.

It isn’t surprising that Vivio continues to lose to Einhart. Einhart has superior skills and training. However, it was nice to see Vivio get to use her magic in combat. No doubt that before all is said and done, Vivio will be as good as Nanoha and Fate.

I was a bit worried that the writers would have Einhart beat Nanoha in this episode. I would have been annoyed had that happened because this is freaking Nanoha we are talking about. I didn’t have a problem with Einhart being good enough to break free of Nanoha’s trap, but I wanted her to take a beating at the hands of the ultra powerful Nanoha. When Nanoha spanked Einhart with the Strike Stars spell, I cheered. Nanoha had to get a little serious, and Einhart got what she wanted to.

I’m still a bit worried that they’ll still find a way for Einhart to beat Nanoha, which I don’t think should happen, at least not for a LONG while. Nanoha and Fate are the most powerful mages at this training camp, and they have battle experience going back for over ten years. Regardless of the training and ancestral memories Einhart has, the best she should be able to do is cause Nanoha to not hold back as much on her.

Ultimately, I’d love to see things wind down with a fight between Nanoha and Fate since they are the top dogs here. It would be a nice nod back to Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, when the two were nine years old and opponents. And, I imagine that Einhart would really enjoy seeing that fight more than anyone else. Well, we’ll see what happens.

I got a bit of a chuckle over Corona summoning a golem she names Goliath. I couldn’t help but think of Ilya and Berserker for some reason.

Normally, this kind of training episode might bore me, but this is the Nanoha gang we are talking about, and my fondness for them all causes me to give a mindless episode like this a giant pass.

    It was mentioned (briefly) in last episode that the adults have limiters on them for this battle.
    Really, that makes sense. Wouldn’t be much fun for the kids to be Divine Bustered out of the battle the moment they start.

      Yeah, I remember that. In StrikerS, I believe Fate, Nanoha, and Hayate all had limiters then as well because they’d become so powerful. They have to get permission to have the limiters released, which I remember being a potential, fatal problem in a crisis situation.

      *lol* True. However, even if Nanoha didn’t have limiters on her, I don’t think she would have gone all out on them.

      Even with limiters on, I still want Nanoha and Fate to be the top dogs.

    Yeah… well, i think that if nahoha ever fights that one person that is going to appear later, that fight would be very even. Scary girl that one is.

    The identity of said girl is confidential, since that would bring out major spoilers. Kudo’s to those who know which girl i’m talking about. The hint is that she has something to do with that hooded fellow standing next to Olivie in some flashbacks.

    • Hiss13 says:

      THAT girl is one of the three most OP characters in the entire franchise along with Book of Darkness powered Reinforce Eins and THAT OTHER CHARACTER from Nanoha Force (who trumps the aforementioned significantly).

      I am just worried that Nanoha is going to get left behind by the others eventually.

        In terms of power, or just being dropped as a character?

        • Hiss13 says:

          In terms of power, mainly.

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            I hope you are wrong there. Nanoha has restrictions on her that limit her power, but once unlocked, there’s no reason she shouldn’t be able to lay waste to just about everything.

            I do know that there’s the notion of “the learner surpasses the master” and certainly when Nanoha is older, I can see that happening. But for now, I really hope Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate (if she shows up in this thing, which I presume she will) don’t get surpassed.

      Ah, then there’s someone interesting coming down the road. Cool.

      Anyway, thanks for not spoiling it. Of course, if you wanted to discuss it with others, feel free to use the spoiler tags. 🙂

    Yes I also think I noticed it was said that adult were sealed portion of their power for this battle. This means that even if Erio Fate beats (his idol and his “adoptive mother”) it does not mean that Erio and stronger than Fate. And is the same thing for Einheart-even if she beat Nanoha in these circumstances, it would not mean much. Besides, if she got beat by Nanoha sealed with his power, what would it have been if Nanoha was serious! Ouch, I hurt for Einheart, just thinking about it lol!

    Astro: I am not convinced that we will have no real enemy. For three reasons:

    1. We are only at episode 6, and animation, has 24 episodes
    2. strikers, enemies have begun to act in episode 11 or 12 (although, it is true, their shadows were present from the beginning (through the drones).
    3. The manga is still in court. Besides, if I believe the wiki, this pasta may from time team-battle (which should be completed in the next episode I think), there will be a tournament of magical martial arts. Perhaps the antagonniste appear on this occasion.

      Very true. I seem to recall from StrikerS that as a rule, Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate have constant limiters on them that can only be released from high up.

      Well, there may be one later on, but at the moment, once Einhart was shown to not be the villain of the piece, then that changed everything. The story so far is just Vivio and her friends coming of age, and Einhart burdened with the past. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a story that has no villain in the traditional sense. 🙂
