    The episode felts a bit badly edited or story boarded. It felt kinda jarring. Disjointed in spots. Felt like it finally got refocused at the end.

    Now, Rinne has put a lot of work into her craft, there’s no doubt. However, Fuuka’s grown up rather Spartan. She’s been in a lot of street fights. Fighting for her life( and perhaps modesty) without magical padding in environments where everything could end up being used against her. It was never a sport. She walked into Martial Arts needing only spit, polish, and the meals to build her body to its full potential. Rinne discounted this at her own peril and I chuckled a little as she went shopping the hard way. I doubt Fuuka will win, but she does have some rather useful advantages that I hope get explored.

    Also, she looks like a psychopathic jawa under that blanket.

      It had to involve quite a few characters and had to get through lots of stuff, from Rinne’s depression to the unofficial match being declared and sorted out. By the end, it refocused just like Rinne has!

    Yeah, I don’t think saving Rinne and Rinne’s victory are mutually exclusive. I would actually be fine with her winning, as long as Fuuka makes her point. I understand how strong Rinne is, but right now she’s looking down and underestimating Fuuka. “It’s too early to looking over here, Rinne.” I actually haven’t watched the previous Nanoha stuff but I think it was interesting how Victoria told Rinne that Einhart was like herself before, only focused on becoming stronger. Which points to Rinne being saved.

    Also as a side note, Fuuka’s last line reminds me of Touma from Toaru Majutsu no Index.

    “Sono kusatta shoune watashi wa buchikowashite yaru!”
    I’ll destroy that rotten nature of yours for your benefit!

    “Sono Gensou wo Buchikorosu!”
    I’ll break that illusion of yours!

      Fuuka is basically here to tell Rinne that she’s not living her life correctly. And she’s probably right in that respect.
