While I didn't mind them as bonus eps, this is just a gripe, but ova 3 in particular felt a bit inconsistent to me what with how everyone reacted as Rinne won, was it really special enough to warrant tears? I mean they had long since established that, barring Vivio's skill as an outlier, and Fuuka, no "normal" competitor should be able to even remotely close the gap in terms of raw attack power and endurance...But they seem so happy...Really, am I missing something?

Moreover back in ova 1...

Spoiler:
Fuuka managed to break Golaith's arm too with a basic counter, despite even Einhart having to break out the heavier tier techniques just to fight the darn thing
...should I just chalk this up to taking it easy and Fuuka being trained by Einhart?

Even after Vivid, Vivid Strike, and its OVA's, I just can't help think that Rio and Corona were still the most amusing characters in each one, and really had a near criminal lack of screen time and wasted potential.

Well it was Rinne's goal to become the U-15 champion. And she had just that last tournament to do it. Lucky she manage to try again so maybe it is a big time for her.

Noted. I admittedly hadn't actually realized that Rinne wanted to become the U-15 champ, so much as prove herself strongest a la a more cynical replay of Einhart's plot in retaliation to her own fear of weakness. It just felt kind of counter intuitive since she and the posse were shedding tears of relief as though she had just accomplished her life's goal, despite basically only doing so cause she was cruising on easy mode after the higher tier bosses left stage. I guess seeing your set goal through to the end is still worth celebrating though, so thanks for the explanation.

In all honesty is not clear why Rinne wants to be the champion. It seem like that was lost somewhere along the way. But she did want that belt.

She wanted that belt more as a proof that she is not weak anymore. Which is not really healty for her but Jill totally took advantage of that.

The reference to being friendly and peaceful is significant when you consider thing through Ixy's eyes. In practically any period before this one they (Einhart, Vivio, Ixy, Sieg, possibly Vic if we believe her etc.) would be out on the battlefields destroying the lands and each other.

Yeah, but the whole thing is meaningless when you consider Rinne was not that much worry about being weak but about hating herself, so how was that belt going to help?

Also, no. I am not seeing things from Ix perspective when every time we see her she is happy, and her terrible past is told by single shots of her looking sad and we being inform she is.

Well duh, of course she is happy. Thing would need to get considerably worse for her not to be when you compare the current state of affairs to what she from her perspective experienced half a decade ago, which was back in the worst parts of the Belkan wars from her perspective.
Then again this is only my interpretation...

Umm she is a person who has suffered an incident, which kind of broke her mind and she totally is NOT thinking rationally? She believes that her not being able to answer her grandfathers phone call is what killed him so she is tablespoon for his death because she was not strong enough to stand up to the shitheads. It's totally bonkers, but that is what deep down is driving her. The need to get better or suffer punishment for her failure in the ring. Which is why she was down with the Jill's stupid overly harsh training regimen that was actually endangering her life and if Nanoha learned of it.... the only part of the Fronteer gym left standing would have been the smoking foundations.
Anyway so to her addled mind she needs to prove to herself that she is no longer weak, and right now the confirmation of that to her would be by being confirmed a champion, somebody in her mind who can not be beaten (which is also bullshit).

Since the beginning of May, I received a direct mail from Japan, "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection" drama CD since, I have no intention of "Vivid Strike," the latest out of the CD "Summer Time Vacance Songs" bought. Because this CD is scheduled for sale at the official Vivid Party Conference on the Vivid Strike in May 7th, I have no time to go back to Japan. As a matter of fact, I guess after this CD release, is it possible that someone on the Internet may provide download resources? But online search for almost a month, no one to provide the download resources in this regard, I do not know is a technical problem? Or copyright question?
Later, I decided to buy this CD, because CD contains Inori Minase and Yui Ogura two singers were sang character song "明日への風" and "Shiny Sky Memories" in anime "Vivid Strike" without these songs, estimates may be original character songs? So I decided to buy this CD and listen to what it would look like.
To the time of the purchase, Since May has come to the end of the month time, only the website in Japan this CD auction, and other shopping sites without the CD deal. And that some of this CD auction sites have already ended, the original price 1200 yen (equivalent to more than 80 Hong Kong dollars, equivalent to more than 70 yuan RMB) CD auction to 3000 yen (equivalent to HK $more than 200, equivalent to more than 180 yuan RMB) the highest price on the end.
I think CD company King Records that sells this CD, is getting too little? The CD Summer Time Vacance Songs has been sold out in seems that in less than a month. What's more, even the words "limited edition" are not marked? Not as good as limited edition of "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection" drama CD was fired to 9000 yen for trading. After, will there ever be any CD of the same or different content?
I wonder if anyone who has bought this CD can sell this CD to us again?

I remember people on Twitter were saying this drama CD was pretty cute, but nobody uploaded it. It sounds pretty inconsequential anyways, and besides this I think there is another drama CD that never got uploaded, I don't remember if it was about Innocent or one of the PSP games.

Considering that the PSP one (at least it used the Materials and such) was translated by Nagumo of AS and put together in form of video with audio and subtitles by AtomicoX, I guess the Innocent one never received such treatment. Then again I was not aware it was a thing. Sounds to me like it might be a bit expensive to make considering what hodge podge of characters that thing is. And it might be interesting.

About this, I been posted questions on Chinese net Baidutieba.(https://tieba.baidu.com/p/5138685339)
According to some of them said, "我买了一张(English: I have already bought one)", I asked him in Chinese again, "如何证明你买了一张(English: How can you prove that you bought one?)", he said, "雅虎上2500日币拍的(English: I spend 2500 yen bought one on Yahoo Japan)".
But I haven't asked when he bought it, he talked to other people and said, "还没寄回来,到时候会在天使动漫发的(English: They haven't sent it back yet. I will be uploaded it on 天使动漫)". I think someone might uploaded it be there.

This Character song CD "Summer Time Vacance Songs" has been waiting for me for two months. This is me "No bought," after a spread, not just on Baidutieba, someone has given me said this CD Akihabara to buy address in the group I where. Then he added, "剩下只能靠你了(English: The rest is up to you)". I replied, "謝謝了。不要以為我在日本那邊沒有僱員,到時候一定會得到(English: Thank you. Don't think I don't have an employee in Japan, and I'll get it)". After that, when I was watch movies "Nanoha Reflection" and "心が叫びたがってるんだ" in Japan with the mainland Chinese, Have to Akihabara to buy it successfully.

明日への風

繋がる心と笑顔に
駆けだして今すく
夢見た明日に向かって
鮮明な空見上げながら
巡り会えた大切な人
触れて広がる絆の数
同じ夢を追いかけてゆく
いつも どんな時も繋がってる
風の中誓いあったあの約束
今でも心に灯ってる
ここから始まる新しい
鮮やかな世界に想い広げたなら
夢見た強さに 必ずたどり着くから
きっときっと
遠く見えたあの日の願い
今は届くと信じている
遥か彼方 虹のむこうへ
もっと 強く強く踏み出してく
向かい風負けないよう
立ちあがるよ
いつでも心はまっすぐに
瞳を上げたち広がる
鮮やかな世界と果てのない未来図
夢見た明日は必ずそこにあるから
きっときっと
たどり着ける
いつだって
心に灯った約束は消えない
勇気に変えてく
未来へ羽ばたく翼今
風に乗る ここがら
夢見た世界に必ず
一緒にいこう
ずっとずっと
