"Starting Stars Phase-3" is chapter 06 of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS THE COMICS. It was originally published on February 28, 2007.
On their weekend off, Subaru takes Teana to meet her sister Ginga, from whom she learns the reasons that drove Subaru to become a Bureau mage. The following morning, Subaru and Teana begin to address each other by their first names.
Teana and Subaru are now assigned to different training groups but still share a room. They are informed that the training grounds are being readjusted, so they cannot pursue their regular weekend self-training. Instead, they fill out their job expectations questionnaire and discover that they both want to join the disaster relief branch, though for Teana, it is only a stepping stone to a higher rank. The next day, Subaru organizes to go out with Ginga and convinces Teana to meet her, as well. While Subaru is away, Ginga talks with Teana about her family and tells her about Quint's death, Subaru's rescue by Nanoha, and her subsequent decision to quit regular school and become a combat mage. Ultimately, Teana ends up tagging along with the Nakajima sisters the whole day. The next night, Teana wakes up and polishes the Revolver Knuckle for Subaru. In the morning, the two of them start calling each other by their first names, and Subaru gives Teana the affectionate nickname "Tea", much to her embarrassment.
