A few unexpected events make this a very interesting episode….
Arisa and Suzuka have been teleported a safe distance away to their school, while Nanoha is still in shock on what happened to Fayt-chan. Amy informs that Fayt’s vitals are still there and she tries to find a way to recover her back. The Yami no Sho states that Fayt and Hayate are now in an eternal dream….
Fayt, meanwhile, seems to be in a room, and awakens to discover none other than Alicia, sleeping next to her. Their maid, Rinis, comes in and wakes them up and they head for breakfast, where Precia is already waiting there for them. Fayt, still traumatized by past events, hesitates to face Precia, but Precia kindly says that everyone is with her. After breakfast, everyone heads for town to go shopping, where Fayt, constantly reminding herself that this is dream, breaks down, as she finally gets to feel what it’s like to be a family.
Outside, Nanoha has a hard time fighting with the Yami no Sho, when Raging Heart tells her to use Excelion Mode. Initially, Nanoha hesitates but finally follows Raging Heart’s wish and uses it, changing her staff into a spear-like formation and Yami no Sho responds by using a variation of Fayt’s Photon attacks…
While, in the dream world, Fayt and Alicia is sheltering under a tree from a sudden rain…
– Fayt: Nee.. Alicia, this is a dream isn’t it?
– Fayt: A world where both you and me are in doesn’t exist. If you had lived on, I wouldn’t be born.
– Alicia: Sou… da ne.
– Fayt: Mother…. hasn’t treated me that kindly…
– Alicia: She is kind… because she was a kind person, that’s why she broke down…. to try and revive me.
– Fayt: Um…
– Alicia: Nee.. Fayt, this world isn’t bad as well. I can exist here, we can be together with everyone. Fayt’s happiness is also here…..
Back outside, Nanoha shows off some new moves with her Excelion mode, including A.C.S and Strike Flame and manages to use Break Shoot to damage the Yami no Sho.
Inside, where Hayate has all this while been talking to the Yami no Sho, the Yami no Sho confesses that because her Linker Cores are connected to the kishidan’s, she feels regret for causing Hayate all this pain and apologizes for the bousou program is starting. Hayate decides to give the Yami no Sho a new name and tries to stop the program. She manages to communicate with Nanoha and tells her to try and stop the Yami no Sho from outside. Yuuno-kun agrees to it as well, and tells Nanoha not to hold back.
On Fayt’s side, Alicia hands Fayt her Bardiche and they hug while Alicia disappears. Fayt changes into her Barrier Jacket and uses Zanber Form, changing Bardiche into a broadsword. Both Fayt and Nanoha launch their attacks simultaneously resulting in a big explosion. Everyone is happy to see Fayt back but Amy informs them that the Yami no Sho’s reaction is still there. Chrono is almost to the scene, apparently with a way to end it all…
A lot of action this episode. I was primarily surprised they made Fayt dream of a happy family with Alicia, Precia and Rinis. Luckily she didn’y get trapped in it.
The Full Drive Modes were really sugoi~~, especially Fayt-chan’s Zanber Mode, which seems to take it’s name from a Gundam weapon ( i think, based on some Googling). Nanoha’s Excelion Mode is really good too. Nanoha-chan is getting more and more kakkoii as well. She had quite a few cool lines this episode, like “there’s no such thing as permanance, everyone will change, they must change, even you and I.” and “I will sleep one day, but now is not the time, because I have to save Fayt-chan and Hayate-chan… and you too.”
The Yami no Sho, or should I say Linforce( I don’t think i got the name right….=.=;;) seems to care a lot too for Hayate-chan. I really feel sad for her, as she was forced to do all this. But from the preview, it looks like she’s going to get a new role (and perhaps we’ll be seeing a third mahou shoujo ^_^).
On that matter, the next episode seems to be a endboss fight against the bousou program, with the help of everyone.The production crew is really not letting us down :).
Oh and for some last words, SNOW RAIN ROCKSS!!!!! I NEED the OST :).
