Just like Vivio won in her manga, right? Rinne is Einhart for Strike!. Rinne is going to make it to fight Einhart.

Well, its obvious Vivio is gonna lose to Rinne.
Now, whether Rinne wins or loses against Fuuka, either way its gonna be a rather meaningful fight against Einhart.

>>149423594
Einhart is safely out of the plot, she is put aside.
Rinne will first show strenght by knocking out Miura, then there will the the "important duel" where she beats Vivio. Which will make the scene for her final fight with Fuuka.
>>
>>149424241
Can somebody confirm?
>>
>>149423959
I doubt Fuuka will win against Rinne.
At best she'll just put up a good fight and manage to beat some sense into Rinne, who reflects on what she has done for the past few years after the fight.
Then Rinne proceeds to fight Einhart, which would be rather thematic, with both of them having sought out strength to protect what they love at one point. Einhart pulling a Sieg and asking Rinne the same exact question Sieg asked Einhart in her fight would be very appropriate considering that Rinne never smiles in her fights.

The fights in Vivid involve simulated injuries. They don't get the injuries for real, but they still feel the pain as if they really did get injured. Then Sieg was stated to be able to casually plow through the system and give real injuries.

The fights here aren't the same as the intermiddle, they probably roll with a different set of rules.

It's a flashback
>>
>>149424752
I did.
They have a system to prevent real injuries there.
But this isn't the Intermiddle. This being another tournament that runs without that system is completely reasonable.

And even in the Intermiddle, Sieg was stated to be able to give real injuries even with the system running.

Why? Seeing how brutal it is Rinne could have easily killed somebody. Those are still children. A protectionsystem makes perfect sense.
>>
>>149424585
>He can't enjoy both when Nanoha has been doing serious and lighthearted since the beginning
Are you serious?
>>
>>149424892
Yes. VividStriker is a Vivid spinoff so I expect a different mood setting.
>>
>>149424890
They have barrier jackets and devices. Those are safety standards.
>>
>>149424976
Not enough obviously.
>>
>>149424939
Vivid is the odd one in the family, you know. Strike may be a spinoff of Vivid, but it backtracks to be closer to Nanoha in terms of serious and lighthearted contrast.
>>
>>149425129
And yet it shits onto the entire Nanoha cast. Kicking most of them out and letting the rest job to promote some new characters. How the hell is that supposed to attract the fanbase?
>>
>watching this
>Miura literally scores two downs on Rinne in the first round

What the fuck? What kind of asspull are they doing to make Rinne win this?
>>
>>149424890
A device that gives a barrier jacket and all the protection that entails is probably the basic protection in this kind of tournaments. Also, getting injured is expected for athletes.
Extra shit like the system in the Intermiddle are probably for the tournaments that needs em, the Intermiddle is a general combat tournament where one can roll with shooting as well as melee, it getting extra safeties especially for the audience in case of shooting spells makes sense.
>>
>>149424818
>This being another tournament that runs without that system is completely reasonable.
Nothing that points out it does though.
>>
>>149425190

>>149425234
Its enough protection in the same way a teenage Nanoha got plowed through a sharp blade and Vita getting all bloody and also getting plowed through a sharp blade at the end of StrikerS on her way to the engine room.

Again, athletes, especially martial arts fighters, are prepared to be injured

>>149425171
What's chewing you? Focusing on the main Vivid cast and not introducing the older cast isn't shitting on them, dude. Rinne is literally Sieg lite 2.0, along with natural superhuman power. Losing to her is far from jobbing.

It's not hard to do when you're OP as fuck, especially when you can bypass defense and the system.

Jobbing is to use a previously established strong character for the new enemy to defeat and make them look more menacing , which is exactly what they used Miura for. What she did today is job to Rinne.

It will. I doubt it is going to sell many BDs. What else is left? A few CDs maybe, no manga, nobody will give a shit about Rinne or Fuuka figurines.
>>
>>149425702
>a character that appeared out of air.
Are you for reals? How in the world is Rinne a random character that just appeared out of nowhere for this episode? She's been hyped more than any other character in the show to monster level.

>>149425727
So basically, a weaker character losing to a stronger character is still jobbing. That's stupid.
>>
>you will never watch Sieg physically dismantle Rinne
>>
>>149425800
Except Rinne lost to fucking Vivio who, even as the MC, couldn't beat Miura.

Introduced in this anime, get a fucking idea.

Yeah, keep that mentality whenever you don't like something.

>>149425890
Has the TSAB tournament arc concluded in Vivid yet? Last I checked Vivio pulled out battle continuation and is still going.
>>
>>149425632
>Highly unlikely. Even if she won by a miracle, there's no way she's going to beat Einhart.

Maybe not Einhard but Fuuka is going to be stronger then Vivio and Miura. And all of that with a few months of training.
>>
>>149425800
Weak characters don't job because they are weak and can't make the enemy look dangerous, only strong characters like Miura can take the task.
We are talking about the girl that can kick small starlight breakers here, making her loss to the new girl is actually stupid.
>>
>Rank #1 fighter beats rank #5 fighter

What exactly is wrong with this?
>>
>>149426027
Despite being a Miurafag I do not mind her loosing. The Vivid cast is big after all so some of the girls have to loose. It is just that its done in such a cheap way. The entire cast only exists to show how strong Rinne is and how great Fuuka is for getting even stronger then Rinne. It has nothing to do with Nanoha or even Vivid. You could have used entirely new characters for it.
>>
>>149425890
Vivio recounts that it was a close match, and sounds more like she won by technicality rather than actually beating Rinne in a fight. Rinns has trainer to become stronger though and she is as Vivio saw in episode 3.

>>149425897
Introduced since the beginning != out of thin air.

>>149426027
A strong character who is still weaker than the opponent. This is typical power scaling by using relatively strong characters to established powerlevel for stronger characters. it has nothing to do with trying to make a strong character look weak and lose on purpose or due to sudden CIS or PIS.

That's what I am wondering. Rinne was already established as #1 with Vivio winning more so on technicality. What's wrong that Miura lost?

If Miura won there wouldn't be much of a plot.

>>149426258
>What's wrong that Miura lost?

Fans of Vivid being mad their characters lose?

>>149426013
Didn't Nanoha matched Fate in a few weeks time? Talent is an unfair bitch.

Because Miura is far better than Vivio.

>If Miura won there wouldn't be much of a plot.
The plot changes depending on how the writer wants, "wouldn't be plot" is an excuse for a bad writing.

Nothing to get upset about.

Since Miura should be fighting twice, her second fight is with Vivio. It's pretty much Vivio is going to win due to the direction of the story. But it's not like Vivio and Miura aren't closely matched since Vivid. Vivio has only gotten stronger in later Vivid chapters.

The context is what makes it jobbing.

>>149426652
Not in this context it doesn't. You can't generalize any fight involving established strong/skilled character losing to an equally established strong character who gets hyped to be even stronger by the narrative. Moreover, jobbing has the connotation of losing due to PIS or CIS, where the strong character who lost could or should had been able to win if they didn't suddenly suffer from PIS or CIS.

Sieg is already beating people around Nanoha and Fate's level. Beating Subaru shouldn't be too difficult for her.
>>

I think it was pretty stupid, first Miura BTFO's Rinne and then AFTER activating her SLB-mode she gets near effortlessly BTFO herself.

If I understood correctly she was using Vivio's bullshit defence
>>
>>149427084
Cop-out argument. People can't take your words seriously now, you know.
>>
Well, Sieg's position in the powerlevels list is rather hard to choose since she never really fought anyone on Nanoha and co's level. She has mostly fought the Vivids.
She could most probably give the experienced fighters a good fight, but winning isn't that clear considering that they could fly.
>>
Dat skindentation
>>
>>149426576
Seeing Rinne eat her words at the beginning of the match to give Miura that ribs shattering attack is a pretty good feeling. I love that little shit but talking shit like 'I won't use grappling with you cause you don't do it' is condescending as fuck. Especially since Miura have a record of beating Vivio, the only girl Rinne has ever lost to. Can't wait to see her getting beaten to paste.

That being said this episode had really nice animation. Especially after this pic.

Miura won't be fighting twice. The image in >>149423358 Is just showing that either Miura or Rinne will face Vivio in the A block finals. Since Miura lost, it will be Rinne.

That's some seriously BS seeding, though.
>>
>>149427442
No she didn't.
>>
>>149427146
Let's go with that. But seriously, in the mock battle between the old cast and new cast, the new cast put up a decent fight following mock battle scenario. Sieg could solo the new cast without any real difficult and still hold back a lot.

Pure speculation. But feel free to belief she can hold her own against Nanoha or Fate.

The seeding is weird. Can't tell if Einhart is required to fight in order to climb or she just automatically climbed without needing to fight.
>>
>>149427793
There is nothing that looks as LRD her though.
>>
>>149427912
To be fair, Sieg has a lot of advantage in melee, once she closes in its probably quite hard for them to get out of that range unless its the melee fighters like Signum.

As long as Nanoha and co plays keep away with their ability to fly, Sieg shouldn't be able to do a lot of damage to them unless she can do shooting spells.
>>
>>149427979
Might be weighted seeding. Einhardt is currently the reigning champion of the U-15 bracket, so she probably gets seeded higher up, requiring fewer (if any) actual fights.
>>
>>149427979
>>149428091
I think its just their guesses and explaining how they might be fighting each other.
To fight Einhart, they have to climb up to the finals.

That's an appeal to silence, but either way, my example i'm trying to point out is that Miura defeated Vivio (In the vivid manga). That establishes certain level on skill and strenght.
Then for purposes of plot on this "Spinoff" , That is diminished for the sake of making Rinne a "frighteting" opponent. Some people here pointed out that Miura jobbed in this fight.

She didn't snap, she just became serious. It's the first time we see her get serious on-screen in a match. Miura isn't a push-over, so it's only natural that Rinne gave it her all. Rinne snapping is probably going to be saved for Fuuka, or Einhart, or in a post-U-15 match sorta like what Vivio and Einhart did in Vivid.

Not really. Miura won at the last time because she was a more skilled fighter, not because she was stronger. Vivio is fucking space Jesus, no one is at her level in vivid.

>>149429204
She didn't snap dude she was just trying hard to win. They've shown her to have an extremely aggressive fighting style since the introduction.

Also I believe she started using grappling at the end, after saying she wouldn't use it at the start. Basically showing that Miura was dangerous.
>>
>>149428979

I can't watch right now, how do Vivio and co react? Does Hayate appear to blast Rinne away for crippling Miura?

>>149429245
I'd say its somewhat expected.

Rinne is supposed to be strong.

Was Rinne pulling the same thing Vivio did in the final Vivio vs Einhart fight?
>>
>>149429204
Watch the raw. She wasn't extremely angry at all. She literally didn't snap. She was getting pummeled by Miura for a while, but the table was turned in her favor after she got serious. Maybe there's a trace of anger in that she was afraid to lose, but it's definitely a far cry from the kind of you're imagining.

Not a surprise really. You saw how StrikerS was handled. Instead of making some skilled enemies the heroines got de-powered by limiters and AMF.
>>
>>149428883
More like ignorance, either way you keep failing to provide evidence. You can't and shouldn't expect people to take you seriously, especially here when trolls trolling is a regular occurrence.

And what about Miura defeating Vivio in Vivid? Even in Strike! Miura held a higher rank in the last U-15. There is no inconsistency there. Rinne beating Miura when she has a higher rank isn't inconsistent too. And Miura jobbing is debatable and still that doesn't indicate inconsistencies at all.
>>
>Rinne beats Miura
This show is so fucking retarded, it's so fucking dumb. Like, it's baffling.
She's probably going to beat Vivio as well because Rinne is stronger than Belkan kings for reasons.

If Rinne beats Vivio, it will completely subvert the message that her character is allegedly based on, that Talent is stronger than Training. Vivio's not exactly skimping on either, even though she's not geared for strike arts, but she should definitely have more raw power than Rinne.

If Rinne wins against Vivio it'll have to be because of some completely bullshit reason.

This is "waaah why are the StrikerS characters able to fight even with muh NanoFate" all over again.

The Vivids were never invincible. They were strong but plenty of characters introduced were stronger than them (Victoria, Harry, etc. not even counting Sieg).

Now people get upset that Rinne, who has been shown to be strong as fuck is also capable of beating them, just like plenty other characters, when she's fucking RANKED HIGHER than them. It's not based on any rational reason but solely on "REEEE THIS FOREIGN CHARACTER IS BEATING MY WAIFUS", except she's not foreign just because she's new.

When Miura (typical "low talent hard work" character) beat Vivio everyone was going "fuck yeah muh underdog waifu, get fucked vivio".

When Rinne threatens to do the same it's "HOW CAN SHE BEAT MUH HOLY EMPEROR SHE'S SUPPOSED TO BE INVINCIBLE" even though Vivio was never that good.

I can understand that people get mad seeing their favorite characters like Miura job because they're awesome but stop pretending like the powerlevels are suddenly "inconsistent" or something when really you just can't handle that a character you arbitrarily defined as "foreign" is actually strong.

I think Fuuka will lose pathetically to Rinne but she'll pull a "never give up" thing that's going to seriously emotionally shake Rinne. I could see her just surrendering there, or otherwise she'll get BTFO by the Hegemon.

And yes, I do know about martial arts practices. Anywhere that isn't some strip mall Burger dojo will instill philosophy along with their martial arts, which includes WHEN and HOW it is acceptable to use them, ESPECIALLY if that dojo/dojang caters to kids and teens.

There is a reason we don't put 12-year-olds in highly-dangerous MMA combat IRL, and it's not because we don't have healing magic.

Fuuka a ドM. Now that explains everything. Fuuka is the blue oni to Rinne's red oni, literally, she's the only one that can quench Rinne's thirst for violence.
>>
>>149430562
No, because Signum/Nanoha/Fate were always shown to be the strongest of the strong, so much that in StrikerS the villains avoided direct confrontation because they were very obviously outmatched. So a character suddenly showing up that can beat them actually IS bullshit, unlike in Vivid, where the characters ARE NOT the strongest, so someone capable of beating them is 100% plausible.

That's not stupid. You see it in card games all the time.

Hell, at the last YGO worlds tournament, the world champion went 1-2-0 to a weird rogue deck in the first round, but ended up winning the entire tournament because he went 2-0 or 2-1 in every other match.

Points are more important than actual match outcomes. If Vivio only won by a single point, then it's probably likely that a lot of her other victories followed a similar line.

They better do it that way or have Fuka win using pure heart. Rinne has talent and years of hard work if Fuka wins because she was better with only a couple months of training it would prove Rinne's coach right about talent always being better than hard work. If the fight isn't Fuka taking everything Rinne can give her and still standing proud at the end VS will offically be shit.

Fuuka is going for the tank route. Reminder that last episode she was wondering about how heavy a serious hit by Rinne is and how she is gonna become someone who can take all of that. Also, since Huracan is specialized in defensive and recovery magic like Teo, we are going to get a scenario where Rinne beats Fuuka to a bloody pulp and the later would just recover and stand up again and again.

More like you're being dumb and inflexible to how tournament scores and seeding words. Rinne debuted a year and a half ago and won every match she was in except one, which was against Vivio. So that's 58 wins and 1 loss by the time of episode 1.

What's actually cheap is that Miura had already two downs and the upper hand during the whole battle without activating her power-up, then suddenly Rinne became able to defeat her through bullshit, this despite Miura activating her power-up.

According to Jill Rinne just used her powerful built and train like mad for defense so she can take hits. That one is pretty bullshit because it only appear in this episode but still makes sense I guess.

>>149431693
Not shrugged, she blocked it with her superhuman strength on top of being reinforcing her body with magic.
>>
>>149431630
And Miura kicks aren't?
Are you seriously saying Miura Bakken, which is a fucking Breaker spell, is not stronger than simple punches?
What's worst, Miura had shaken Rinne before with much less but somehow this did nothing.
>>
>>149431392
What's the power-up even do? Speed boosts and power ups in games tend to throw people off (especially in racing and fighting games), because it throws off your typical placement and timing ability.

You can actually end up being WORSE with the power up than you were without it if you're a skilled player.

>>149431957
Breaker is useful for breaking magic, if Rinne is still strong without magic then Breaker is useless against her. And yeah that part is pretty bullshit but considering Rinne was unfazed through the first two DOWN maybe those attacks were far less effective than it seems.
>>
>>149432170

Sure, Miura being consistency established as being ahead of Vivio in both series somehow creates an inconsistency somehow just because you say so. Totally.

>>149431922
I don't care if they say she trained to be a tank, Bakken is the strongest offensive shit we've seen outside of Sieg's attacks. Literally doing 23k damage in a simulation where people have 15k life iirc.

It makes pretty much no sense that you can flat out block it.

I think it's more likely there wasn't enough ambient magic to absorb and her own output didn't deal enough damage.

The only time she one-shot somebody was against Micaiah and she had dropped all her defenses prior to that.

>>149432335
>Bakken is the strongest offensive shit we've seen outside of Sieg's attacks. Literally doing 23k damage in a simulation where people have 15k life iirc.
Bakke is the strongest when used at the end of a fight where a high number of magic spells are used because like Starlight Breaker, it gathers all the scattering around magical energy to the user. In a martial arts fight where magic is only used for enhancing attacks and defense, I doubt there is that much magical energy on the field at all so it makes sense that Bakken in this fight is not as strong as the Bakken used in the Intermiddle.

Thing is, we don't know how strong it would be against opponents who guards against it. Miura landed her bakken ultimate twice so far against Vivio and Micaiah. In both cases, neither was able to put up a defensive guard to block it, they took the full attack with their bodies.

By points. After she got a down on her, she probably just ran around, dodging every attacks until the time ran out.

What difference does this make? She still beat Rinne. Fair and square.

Are you saying that what Rinne couldn't do with two hands, she could suddenly do with one?

This is the definition of retarded headcanon.

Disk sales do not matter so much. KR pushed the new VAs hard so they will expect some CD sales. Merch sales will probably be low since Nanoha fans do not care much about Vivid and for sure even less about Rinne and Fuuka.

The thing is Rinne was being trashed with far weaker kicks and punches before. She then somehow tanks a kick far stronger than anything that came before, that's what feels cheap to me. Almost as cheap as when the shonen hero defeats the villain by the power of friendship.

No. I'm saying that Bakken is not that powerful. Vivio could defend against it with two hands so it makes sense that Rinne could defend against it with one hand.

>subjective

Objectively unsympathetic character.

>oh my god muh bullying
Is not a reason to be acting like this a year after the fact.

She is genuinely a psychopath. If muh bullying wasn't the trigger that set it off, then it would have easily been something else.

I guess some people do like her, that is why I wrote subjective.

She struggling against her normal punches and kicks with guard on is seen a couple of times. She not even struggling again Bakken afterwards is definitely something that shouldn't happen.

I can still mock Rinne's undersized leg.

>>149435588

Is it this good?
>>
>>149435695
Not that anon. Miura was showering her non-stop with punches and kicks, Rinne failed to block all of them. Bakken is one attack that she blocked perfectly.

She was still trying to trade blows at the beginning. After Bakken was activated, she focused completely on defending and waited for a chance to counter.
Rinne has no confidence in taking on Bakken without proper guards. She even desperately resorted to grappling to avoid taking Miura's last Bakken kick.

I don't like this show very much. Is it really going to juts be one big tournament arc?
Tournaments are what shounen shows do to stall for time. It's what Gundam and Dragon ball devote a season to when they don't want to go through having a big, overarching plot and just want something cheap and dumb to pump out.

Is that really the appeal here?
>>
>>149436702
The purpose of the anime is for to push the new VA's of King Records.
And worse, the whole point is the tournament and the two new characters.

Oh well, a couple of pulverized ribs is nothing. Miura is a tough girl, she can take it. I'm more worrying about Vivio in her next fight with Rinne. I hope she gets her bullshit Sacred Defender up perfectly or else, she is really gonna die or become crippled in this match.

>>149436702
Don't you know about sport anime, anon?

>>149436357
That one in the pic was a kick she defended against perfectly though.

>>149436481
>She even desperately resorted to grappling
She did that after the kick, when a second one was coming.
>>
>>149436903
>She did that after the kick, when a second one was coming.
Yes. She was able to block the first one because Miura took like a good 5 seconds to set it up so Rinne got all the time she needed to prepare herself. She got no time to do so against the second one and knew that she would get rekt if that one hit her.
>>
>>149436903
So? If all of Miura's attack connected to Rinne then Miura couldn't have lost. My point was Rinne blocked some of Miura's attack but not all of them, that's why Rinne ate the dirt twice from Miura normal attacks.

Then she uses a destructive as fuck attack and somehow she lost. She also had an overall boost in everything, but somehow couldn't keep up against the girl who was being pushed back without her boost.

Please do not kill the Miura, she's cute and has a puffy vulva. She's also very flat and doesn't grow up.

Again, Bakken is not that powerful in a fistfight where very little magic is involved. It didn't have much effect when Vivio blocked it either, all it did was pushing her back a little bit.
In the Intermiddle, the field was filled with magical energy from all the previous magic fights that took place on it. Miura and Vivio was also throwing magical balls at each other for a while before getting in close. In this tournament, though, there are not much magical energy to gather. Remember this scene in the Intermiddle? Miura's activation of Bakken in Strike triggered no warning and looks really weak in comparison.

>>149438652
Kanae Itou though.

But Fuuka becomes tall. Miura doesn't seem to grow an inch.
Cute!
