Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha

Post by shanejayell on Fri Dec 30, 2011 5:18 pm

I'm never sure if I should put this under Subtext or not....

(From TV Tropes)

The first series in the Nanoha franchise, simply titled Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, starts out with a typical cookie-cutter plot. Twenty-one artifacts of incredible power called Jewel Seeds have been deposited on Earth
in a cross-dimensional accident. A mage named Yuuno is badly injured
while attempting to retrieve them, and is discovered half-dead by Nanoha
Takamachi, an ordinary 9-year-old elementary schooler. Yuuno lends his "Intelligent Device" to Nanoha, transforming her into a Magical Girl
and allowing her to neutralize and collect the Jewel Seeds, which have
unpredictable and destructive effects when they come in contact with
humans.The first few episodes seem like standard Magical Girl fare... until the rest of the characters show up, and the plot kicks into high gear. Nanoha gains a rival in Fate Testarossa, a Dark Magical Girl
who is also trying to collect the Jewel Seeds, on behalf of the one she
calls "Mother". Despite knowing the devastation the Jewel Seeds could
cause if they were used together, she refuses to discuss the matter.
While technically Nanoha is still after the Jewel Seeds, she wants to
find out what could possibly make someone as beautiful as Fate have such
pain in her eyes. But Fate will not let Nanoha get close to her... so Nanoha decides to beat the truth out of her. For her own good.

Nanoha, especially StrikerS, pretty much defines the concept of "ship tease" for me. Smile It's also a very, very good series when it's not allowing it's otaku-baiting to get too out of control.

I actually found the second season (A's) the best of all three ^^. StrikerS had uneven quality in my opinion, and the villains just didn't evoke the same kind of emotional investment from me as in the first two seasons. The Wolkenritter from A's really brought out the awesome in the show =D.

While StrikerS extended the scope of the series into the very cool military
genre, I felt it stretched too far in the character department and so
lost what was so magical (pun intended! :p) about the series in the
first place. That said, the "married couple" feel from Nanoha and Fate was never stronger than in that season XD.

I've never been a fan of magical girl series, so I'm actually quite happy about the military feel. The season I haven't watched Nonoha until now is because magical girl stuff usually puts me off. ^^;

I'm actually watching the series for the yuri because Tori recommended it to me for that reason.

The 1st and 2nd season is more of that ship tease between Fate and Nanoha and it's only a matter of fact that they actually announce that they're CANON in StrikerS (Sadly, they didn't and we can only assume but that GIGANTIC PAYAPAYA BED and the existence of Vivio gives more galore for fans to consider the two as canon)

...and there's also Signum and Tea and Subaru. >.>;
