Much like last year, this year brings a batch of Ninjas to the fray, and also like last year, the theme of their combat includes weapons with the Brave effect. Heck, we are even receiving another Colorless Dagger Flier! This Ninja Training Banner is quickly shaping up to be one that features some mighty combatants!
Welcome alts of Igrene, male Corrin, Shinon, as well as Duo Hero unit female Corrin with partner Elise, in this banner, as well as Tempest Trials+ reward unit Shamir: Lone-Moon Ninja (a Green Axe Infantry). We also get to see the arrival of the next Duel skill in C Duel Flying 4, as well as a few other inheritable skills that are sure to appeal to some. What’s most interesting to me, is that male Corrin: Daylight Ninja Act, comes with Special Spiral 3, and is also the 4* demote unit for the banner, meaning that Blue is a pretty good color to pull on if you’re looking for some budget-but-valuable skill inheritance fodder.
The Ninja Training Banner runs from November 5 through December 4, so you have plenty of time to decide if you want to take the plunge and secure yourself a new ninja or two.

If you caught the teaser pic from the other day, you’ll have probably had a hunch about an incoming hotsprings banner. Fans of the heat and squeaky-clean special summons can rejoice, as we’re about to receive just that, in the Hostile Springs Special Heroes Banner.
We do have a handful of new skills in this flier-centric series, aside from the neat variety of weapons, including Air Orders 3, Atk Feint 3 and Spd Opening 3.
Included in the maps, Summoners can spot a flying Colorless dagger Camilla (someone arguably expected by fans, to appear in a Fates-based banner such as this). Camilla: Steamy Secrets will be a reward unit that can be earned in the next Tempest Trials+ event.
Hostile Springs brings with it, a paralogue miniseries (great for collecting Orbs), and the banner will be active from January 23 – February 22, (Midnight – 11:59 pm PT). If you’re interested in going for this batch, best of luck, and remember, there’s another Special Heroes banner coming out in a couple of weeks, so there’s a lot to consider for the month of February!

First unveiled at the Summer Wonder Festival not long ago, the Elise Nendoroid is now available to pre-order from participating retailers, such as AmiAmi or Good Smile Company themselves.
In case you missed it earlier, Good Smile Company added a lot of detailed photos, which you can find on their online shop, among other places (and for your convenience, we’ve included them at the end).
Perhaps the biggest and most welcome surprise is that Elise is accompanied by her cute little pony. Besides her trusty steed, the set also includes two additional face expressions (upset and smiling), a Heal staff and healing staff effect.
