The DVDs I own of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha seemed to use very bad fan subs as when Alph first appeared, Arisa kept referring to her as a 'he' (despite clearly seeing her boobs), then Fate was named Feid, and Alph was Elofy.

In episode 7, Is This a Third Magician? (titled in the subs as The Third Magical Girl), there is a subtitle indicating where Fate was living. However, I don't trust it as shortly after when Nanoha gets off the bus to walk home and meets Yuuno with the repaired Raising Heart, there is a subtitle of where she is and not only is it totally different to what was shown with Fate's location, but it doesn't even says Uminari City which is where the the Takamachi's, Bannings' and Tsukimura's live and where Midori-ya and Seishou Elementary School located (as such it's very unlikely Nanoha was dropped off in another city after school to go home or to visit Arisa or Suzuka).

So I am wondering where was that apartment tower Fate was living in?

  • Those subs sound horrible. I don't remember that from when I watched it. I know even the official subs had certain naming issues for awhile. – zibadawa timmy Jun 22 '15 at 0:17
  • @zibadawatimmy yeh, most of the time i can infer the actual meanings from the Wikia but i can't seem to find that tower on there – Memor-X Jun 22 '15 at 0:31
  • The wikia itself seems to have issues with the naming. On Fate's page it uses both Arf and Alph, for example. – zibadawa timmy Jun 22 '15 at 0:45
  • @zibadawatimmy Feito Tesutarossa is the romaji to Fate's name and Arf's name the romaji is Arufu but in INNOCENT it's been transliterated as Arf so i can assume this is how her name is written in English (as opposed to Alph) – Memor-X Jun 22 '15 at 0:57
  • Apparently Wikia seems to have this info: "Fate teleports to her home from the top of an office building with complicated coordinates and magic. Her home is in a gloomy hideout in the Garden of Time with her mother and Arf, sharing a room with the latter". I don't know what the subtitle says, but I think it's far away from the correct location? – Aki Tanaka Apr 30 '17 at 21:20

On Earth, Fate and Arf live in an apartment which is probably located somewhere in Uminari City. Apart from that, their home is the Garden of Time, the base of Precia Testarossa in the dimensional space.
