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).

Fair enough I guess
