(NecroRyu @ Sep 13 2013, 02:00 PM) finale just subbed and watched ^^ glad to know is faithful to the manga and 2wei's confirmed with Bazett's arrival, as i expected Berserker lasted longer (after Saber) using his God Hand noble phantasm and literally Miyu's now closer to Ilya (yuri?)... anyway is too much of a coincidence that their upcoming OVAs in fall are the same quantity of episodes they messed up, also I guess the extra 5 specials will be short omakes about gags and other 'filler' stuff that was left out from the Tv adaptation
Actually I flipped through the manga to double-check, and they have already cover everything in the series 1 manga. Just to clarify, this show has more or less remained loyal to the manga source, all but except the part which they change Iliya was "scare of the tremendous amount of magic power she herself possess and being different from a normal girl/human being (scare of herself)" to anime's "being scare of live and death battles (scare to fight)". Also, the part at the last episode part which they transformed and fly to school, that is actually the very beginning part of the Zwei volume one, but I do think using that scene as the ending for season 1 is a nice touch, as it was the perfect way to conclude this season.
So what I meant to say was there's no material at all
is left from the season 1 manga, except for the change I mentioned above.
There's two other things got removed:
a) During the episode of Iliya stay home to rest, Shirou got removed, and the maid's talk of "Iliya's seal has sighs of being temporarily unlocked, and some of the 10 years worth of accumulated power has been released" as well as "the seal would not be unlock except for being in live and death situation" also got removed (3 pages of materials)
Also during the bath scenes with Iri and Iliya having a mother and daughter talk, in the anime that removed the part which Iri said "The seal/lock has been opened twice, and the power accumulated over 10 years has pretty much all gone. The power consumption is shocking, I didn't expect that the seal would unlock so soon", plus other talks regarding the meaning of "power" (3 pages of materials.
Due to the nature of how they are removed and those scenes being part of the chapters already animated, it's not possible for them to put these scenes into separate episodes, or are those small amount of materials enough for making new episodes. If anything, the only way to do it is to add these scenes back in on the Blu-ray release.
For the specials or OVAs, I'm not sure where you getting the info from, but I just don't see what they can do, except for original stories that are not in the manga and exist outside the time-line of Zwei. I guess they COULD do that official crossover chapter from the volumne 2 of Zwei/CompAce's May 2010 issue (which both I happen to own) which Iliya and Miyu meet and fight side by side with Nanoha and Fate considering that story is outside the timeline of the main story, but can't say I really see that happening.
