The writers in Nanoha, much as I like the various series, kept making stuff up as they went along, which forced them to pull a lot of BS out of their asses.
Case in point, the limiters. They had to have a reason why Nanoha and Fate were OVER 9000!!11! times weaker in StrikerS despite the fact that 10-15 years of experience and training should have made them so strong from the ridiculous levels they started at that they could explode planets just be blinking too hard.
If they hadn't, people would be asking why the hell Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate don't just snuff out Scaglietti and crew in 10 seconds like the pussies they were.
I still find it ridiculous that after two seasons of the T&S Administration basically being a bunch of impotent, powerless morons who allowed every crime in the Universe to take place and hope some random lolis are around to take care of it, to this massive, fascist, politically connected bureacracy of power-hungry, red-tape driven faggots.
Also, Scaglietti looks exactly like a male version of The Major. Pic reated.
