I retroactively give this whole series and the two movies five stars out of four.
Man, I have no one else to talk about the show with, and it's so good!
Anyway, trying not to spoil things for anyone that didn't see it, but noticed that Andrew said a few episodes back that Diana had lost her magic at a young age and worked hard to recover it, and we also found she had a secret Chariot card in a box she seemed to value? I don't think that's a coincidence.

Go back and watch the original movie. Check out who's in the audience a couple of rows back from little Akko...

I noticed that too. I wonder if they were planning to develop it in a planned series?

Either they planned it from the beginning (at least some of it) or someone on the production staff is the Einstein of retcon.

It's been years since I saw the original movie, never noticed that detail. Will have to rewatch. They did retcon a few things from what I recall, like how Akko found the Shiny Rod in the first place. There's also no mention in the show of the Rod's ability to transmit power beyond the range of the philosopher's stone, which was central to the plot in the second movie. Which should be significant given the plot of the series. Everyone recognizes the Rod as Shiny Chariot's but none of the teachers seem interested in the various powers it has, which is odd.

Yes, there's some things in the original movie that don't quite mesh, and some things that seem to have been left unsaid in the TV series.
Still great, though.
