|Primary caster||Nanoha Takamachi|
|Japanese name||エリアサーチ |
|First app.||Nanoha (ep.3)|
When used for the first time, Area Search lets out like a net, allowing Nanoha to scan it quickly to find a Jewel Seed hidden in a giant tree.
Wide Area Search (ワイドエリアサーチ Waido Eria Sāchi) is the enhanced version of the spell, used in StrikerS to find Quattro so she can defeat her, ending her control over Vivio. A few orbs of energy similar to divine spheres are summoned and roam the Cradle in search of their target. Initially it is called by Raising Heart as WAS only, its full spell name is revealed after the search completes, i.e. Quattro is found.
