As for Fate not working, we only have the word of a crazy woman on that. Another thought I had during the first series was that if they needed more fire power on their spaceships, they could just tie Nanoha to the nose and call her their spinal mount weapon. Yup, see evil powerful enemy space ship, send Nanoha out side the ship to shoot at it. o_O "We'll use the bathwater to wash Ixy." Yep, definitely from Mid. Rio has a different form of Adult Mode, body strengthening? "Commander Yagami" Meanwhile, Fate and Nanoha have been off on their own... Brunzel is very large and spiky to stick down there. The adults seemed to have grown extra cup sizes, though.
Even the messed-up-ness of the Book is likely due to incompetent meddling instead of malice.
We were all raised to believe in a cause but we didnt think it through. I dont know if Ill ever be a saint but I choose to try. A long silence ensued, while Signum quietly navigated. Who you should not call Sister Squared unless you enjoy being in trouble, Sein said to Signum. Anyway, what it says is that its easy to give up and hard to persevere sometimes, but when did anything good come of just giving up early? What if your path was really foolishness and you didnt realize it in time?
Chronos has to talk him into taking a chance to end the Book forever, and save Hayate in the process.
But there's some lack of logic in his and his familiar's actions that don't really follow as you (or I) watch the show, so I don't care for him much as a villain. I've read some of it, read wiki pages on more, and have heard a lot about it, enough that I have no real intention of reading it systematically. I've read up through volume 6 or so, and so far it's pretty good.
Perhaps it changes later, but again the exploration of "what makes people bad" is pretty cool.
