ok you guys know about this korean guy who married the pillow... He claimed that Fate's height is about 164cm(5'3")....... Lol what do you guys think? (I'm talking about the height from Strikers)... I think she looks way taller than that haha
According to Official Art. Fate Testarossa-Harlaown is 163.5cm or 5'4". ^^ (has the same height, yeah. @_@)
*Stands on the tips of his toes, trying to reach Risa's height.*
<- Is a flat 160cm.
Huh, I thought they were taller.
She does look taller...my sister is 5 foot 4 and she is considered short...
So Nanoha is like 150 cm? o.o
I was surprised too when I saw that.. I think the art says that Nanoha is 158.28cm.. And Signum is just 166.76cm.. I never thought I was taller than Signum O_o...
Yes, those heights are not consistent with what we see in the show or in Vivid, they're just an estimation made from the original characters' design sheet, so not necessarily everything from the original concepts made its way to the series in the exact same way, and not necessarily the estimations were precisely made.
I'm not sure what "official measure" Alter uses to make their scale figures, but measuring Fate in Shin Sonic form (scale 1/7) and doing the conversion, it would turn to a 171.5 cm Fate which is more or less the height I picture her, since she is one of the tallest female characters.
That would make Nanoha 1.62-1.65ish in a rough estimate and Hayate 1.55 because I don't have either figure to measure them.
That's just a way it ocurred to me of figuring her height.
Do they make a Signum? She is, I think, the only woman taller than Fate in the cast, and I wonder how tall that would make her. 175cm or thereabouts?
you are a same heigt ^^
I think a signum is 172cm
but Why a fate is 165cm its very long ><
O_O I thought that Fate was 1.70, Nanoha around 1.65 and Signum way taller than Fate.
But she's only 1.64?! I've never thought that I would be taller than Fate by 2cm, also this info ruined so many of my fantasies TT^TT
It's not official information, as I said in my previous post the height data were estimations made by a fan from the original sketches of the StrikerS data book (I think it was called that).
Not everything from the original concepts of StrikerS made its way to the animated series, so I think Rogue Devlin estimations seem more accurate.
*phew* thank you for this info^_^
I should have read all the previous comments, sorry D:
The good thing is that this info saved my fantasies ;D
I'll try to update when I get Nanoha and Signum from the same Alter figure releases, because although there are a lot of reviews of the figures online, the measures they have are of the figure's whole length and not only the body itself.
I would still like to know what reference they use to justify their "scale", but there doesn't seem to be any available information online.
Unless there are some StrikerS artbooks with the measurements out there I do not know there are no official numbers. Official site keeps silent, the series itself does not mention it as far as I remember and the official guides I have seen do not mention it either.
I have seen a chart with the heights of all the MGLN characters,but just my luck I can't seem to google it or search it out. I'll post when I know.
I think Fate is much taller than 1m63. If so, i'm taller than her and as tall as Signum (1m66)? I don't believe it. They seem much taller than that
I think so too. But seems like i'm taller than most of the girl characters in MSLN. I'm 1cm taller than Signum :)). But still, i don't believe that pic much.
No. Uh... There is a way for artists to convert the drawings into height. Let's see, there's a type of conversion that I don't remember.
And I'm pretty sure that those artwork are quite accurate, since they were transliterated by residents of 2ch. Yeah. xD
So yeah, please believe them because they are actually (or can be) accurate. Because when you draw, you do measurement too. xD
You have to consider that these heights are based on Japanese conceptions.
170 cm is VERY TALL for Japanese girls (see Lovely complex, where a 170cm tall girl is considered a giant).
So 166 cm is quite tall as well and 163 cm is nowhere near small, it's quite normal, while smaller than 160 cm is slightly on the small side, but not extreme either.
Being really small in Japan is around 140 cm (see the series Hiyokoi).
