Now that the blood has dried up, lets take a moment to fully appreciate this modern masterpiece.
It still has lolis
It has a few butts in there
Get scared, bullies, because JUSTICE always wins.
When is season two getting announced? It sold pretty well didn't it?
It's more than half a month already. I'm losing hope.
I think it's time to give up.
What's her name dindu nuffin wrong.
Vivid Strike was great!
My favorite part was when Rinne-chan wiped the floor with Vivio and then Einhart and went on to become the champion.
Rinne-chan is the best!
Vivio and Ein are too strong to lose to some orphan girl.
She'll have to settle for an even bigger loser.
I want this to happen, but fuck you for implying Vivio is the one settling.
My biggest complaint about Vivid Strike is that we didn't get to see Einhart absolutely destroy Fuuka and Rinne at the end.
Vivio is a loser and needs to feel dominant. She can't do it with Ein, so she will do that with that loser faggot Miura.
Stop it. Miura is a good girl and a talented fighter. She doesn't deserve your bullying.
Should've hired these sluts to cheer her on.
Vivio will always be a disappointment to Nanoha as long as she keeps practicing strike arts and not range magic.
I love Rinne
I love Fuuka
So now that some nanohafags are still alive, i've never watched the other series/seasons, still i sort of know what it's about and some characters but more like some synopsis, is possible to watch and enjoy this one as a "first" nanoha?
I mean in a sense like what happen to gundam series where even if you didn't watched the old ones you can kind of understand the background (still don't getting the cameos/puns but the rest can be enjoyed), or should i watch all previous nanoha series/movies to understand what the fuck is going on in this one?
Depends, really. Older Nanoha series are almost unrelated and kind of different. The first and second Nanoha shows are something like if you have magical girls with mecha-like beams and fights (aerial maneuvers, etc.). Oh, and lolis.
Vivid Strike might require you knowing a little bit of the Vivid characters, but honestly I dropped that shit at episode 2 back when it aired. I just jumped right into this one (before dropping this too) and I was just fine. I just googled shit or lurked in the threads here.
Rinne was the best thing about this show.
Rinne and fuuka are both great
Fuuka is better though.
Tea is so cool
May, probably. The few yuri doujin from the last Comiket are all non-H comedy.
I'm talking about Vivid Strike stuffs.
Fuuka is mine.
Go pound Nove or something.
Real talk, what would they even cover? The entire point of the series was for Fuuka and Rinne to get together. At best you could ask for is a bunch of shorts about Fuuka, Rinne, and the Nakajima crew just doing random shit.
I want a series about "Seig and her merry friends' hobo adventure".
Fuuka is the superior hobo
A true hobo doesn't get fed everyday nor sleep on a bed in a house.
She's just staying there so that she can rob Nove in the future.
Meh. Not enough zenryoku zenkai mahou.
Left hand. Right hand.
When you think of Nanoha the first thing that should come to mind is Fuuka.
Oh yeah, let's appreciate the Nanoha killer. Why not.
>When is season two getting announced?
Never, shut the fuck up already.
>Vivid Strike was great!
Not even close.
I'm sick of this Vivio x Ein.
What about the true OTP
Fuuka is the fluffiest
Her head is meant to be rubbed
I want to rub Fuuka's head with a rusty saw!
I want Fuuka to eat a gun!
I want to please Rinne with a shotgun! And then pull the trigger while I do it! And then do it again!
Ruined from the word go.
If they end up animating the infinite library part, it could be tons of fun.
I want to make her cuter! I want to punch her in the nose, mouth and eyes with brass knuckles until she's the cutest!
Rinne is majestic and beautiful.
Majestic like an eagle! I want to launch her off of a building with a catapult! Right into a bed of spikes! A big bed of spikes that accounts for changes in trajectory caused by weather conditions!
A laser trap! A trash compactor! An industrial furnace! So many options, but so few that will leave her dead body in one piece to be spat at until it rots and gets eaten by worms that I'll supply!
Such lovable devices! I wish to trap them inside a box, fill the box with poison and then never open it up ever again! Are they alive? Are they dead? Do I care? Nope.
That moment and Vivio's fight were the only good moments in the show. Also whenever Harunyan was on screen flexing her swag...that wasn't bad either.
Oh jesus, why are you still here. Let the rest of us enjoy the series in peace for a change.
So I watched Vivid Strike about half way through before I went back and watched Nanoha and Nanoha A's. They were okay I guess. Then I watched Nanoha Strikers. That was pretty good after I think episode 8 or so. Started off really slow. Nanoha Vivid was cool but I was kinda salty they ended it before the showed Vivios and Einhardts fight.
So basically my ranking is
Haven't watched the movies yet.
Fuuka's entire appeal is to be cute when hurt.
This is some pretty bad bait.
This too. Just terrible.
>I just don't understand the appeal of the original Nanoha series.
Well, if you're being honest, then I'm not surprised. Only faggots like you could put the first two seasons that low, while also putting Vivid Fuckin' Strike that high, while also listing StrikerS twice, while ALSO listing it both times above the first two seasons.
No, anon, we're talking about Vivid Strike.
Are you saying Fuuka is not cute?
That's one unusual ranking. Especially ranking the same anime twice.
I've seen cats that were run over, and they were cuter than Fuuka.
He's not only a VSfag, but a StrikerSfag. It's no surprise.
Yeah sorry I typo'd. It was mostly the art style that made me disliked the original and for Strikers. But Strikers was pretty good. But in the end everything on the original series was predictable.
I predict that Vivio is going to be very happy with her wife Corona.
>It was mostly the art style that made me disliked the original and for Strikers. But Strikers was pretty good. But in the end everything on the original series was predictable.
Lazy fucking bait.
I want to love Fuuka with a baseball bat covered in barbed wire.
I'm not even baiting. I am just telling you how it is. There was literally nothing great about Nanoha. Sure she is cute and the panty peeks every now and then but at the end of the day it is still a generic magical girl show with a predictable plot.
Pretty good taste anon. I rank the shows about the same, though I'd put A's over the Vivid anime (but below the Vivid manga).
>I'm not even baiting.
>There was literally nothing great about Nanoha.
>Pretty good taste anon.
I'd love to see what standards you have for "good" if that passes in your opinion.
>Vivid's anime this high
I like Vivid but the anime is trash. Strike wasn't that good either, honestly. You could've shown the first 4 episodes and then skipped to the last 3 episodes and missed nothing too important. The middle section is completely irrelevant.
>I can see how frustrating it would be if you had to wait a week between each of those training episodes
Except that never happened. We weren't waiting a week between episodes. We were waiting for over a month while [yesy] subbed it as slowly as possible. That's why this image exists.
Good would be anything other than your shitposts anon-kun.
I'm not going to watch the fucking thing again, but I am absolutely sure that the finale does give you all the info you actually need to know to make sure the fight has some """""punch""""" and """""emotional payoff""""".
I'd slap that ass. I'd slap it really hard with a morning star.
What might you be talking about, then? Surely it's not something shitty, is it?
As someone who marathoned it, I think it would be a lot more enjoyable with a week of posting loli doujins between episodes to distract you from how awful it is. I spent the first half nearly falling asleep and the second half furious about how they completely disregarded the last 6 hours of torture I went through so that the end could be about Nanoha.
Vivid Strike did the right thing by pushing all the old characters to the side and focusing on the main two from start to finish.
Huh, finally a correct opinion on these threads for onc--
>Vivid Strike did the right thing
>I'm glad you liked that
But I didn't?
Gee, that's quite the accusation to throw right before saying,
>I threw it in there specifically to let you know there's no one on your side here.
>I hope Reflections is shit and you kill yourself.
Go for it, anon.
Only when done by someone from the cast.
>calling the CDs whose main content is about Reflection Nanoha and co. "trash"
So you admitted that even Reflection is trash to you now.
Hating the drama CDs that accompany the movie is not the same as hating the actual movie, which I'm not doing.
Not that I'd expect someone who's (hopefully just pretending to be) retarded to know the difference.
Still better than any StrikerS, Vivid, Force or Strike designs.
And yet even strike managed to get the hair right
Worst Nanoha of all.
Not even top 150.
I can't fucking wait.
The top 1 cutest girl, second in fluffiness only to Fate.
Not even top 150.
I know, thats why I said she is #1, not #150
She'd be lucky enough to be #151, let alone #1.
I wish I could be this delusional. Maybe then it wouldn't hurt so much to see what this franchise has become.
Revitalized from the failures of its past seasons? Why would it hurt to see the franchise being good again?
>Revitalized from the failures of its past seasons
>the franchise being good again
Reflection wasn't released yet, it's still some months away.
I know and sadly thats why Fuuka's efforts to save the franchise will be in vain at the end
A movie that can't even get the hair well is bound to ruin what little is left of the old cast.
>and sadly thats why Fuuka's efforts to save the franchise
Oh, she was trying to save anything? Could have fooled me!
>A movie that can't even get the hair well is bound to ruin what little is left of the old cast.
As opposed to the show that can't even the writing well and already ruined what little is left of the old cast. Sure.
She wasn't trying, she succeeded.
At least for a shortwhile until your movie comes out.
If Fuushit's brand of "saving" includes taking the franchise further away from what made it good and closer towards shitty MMA with shitty characters nobody gives a shit about, then I'll gladly welcome the movie's attempt.
Probably not. It'd be so fucking cool if they did, though.
>If Fuushit's brand of "saving" includes taking the franchise further away from what made it good and closer towards shitty MMA with shitty characters nobody gives a shit about
Because certainly force weapons and kaiju battles are what made this franchise good and not the very gay drama of a good girl trying to beat some sense into an emo chick
Because certainly MMA trash, generic backstories and busted storytelling are what made this franchise good and not the excellent writing that made people care about the characters and their dilemmas (as well as about the very gay drama you mention).
>posts screenshot of the first movie
You can do better than this
You don't deserve better.
And while the movies' writing is a lot of things, "worse than Vivid Strike's" isn't one of them.
I will honestly be surprised if they do anything more than maybe relay a message to one of the characters at an important moment if time.
If one of them does something heroic, like stepping in front of Nanoha or Fate in order to deescalate a fight or a battle, I will be completely shocked.
Yet they still somewhat managed to fuck up a plot that was already excellently written.
While strike may not be excellent it still manages to be a functional story, something movie 1st isn't.
It's a good thing then that I was never talking about the movies outside the post you're replying to.
Let's not change the subject. Your show is fucking trash and can't compare in any way to S1 or A's. Or, hopefully, Reflection.
First you must make sure you have shit taste. That way, you get maximum enjoyment out of that piece of shit.
Fool, you don't understand how the writer works, do you?
They made Vivid Strike A's. They copy the A's plot and add in a whole new team of orphans that want to win so they can get money and eat and shit, so Fuuka's got to beat them all up and make them stop being assholes.
>the only way Vivid Strike can be good is by copying the plot of other, better shows
OK, back on topic. The movie will be trash and strike is a far better follow up to S1 and A's legacy than reflection will ever be.
>not Fuuka getting beated up by all of them
>The movie will be trash
So we're making retarded assumptions right from the start today.
>and strike is a far better follow up to S1 and A's legacy
Oh yeah, the legacy of shitty MMA fights and shitty writing, neither of which was actually in S1 or A's. That legacy?
Oh hey, it's the bait man again.
Its not an assumption, shitty character designs are only a symptom of the little respect and care they have for the characters and the changes on staff and the fact that it took ages to be made after being green lighted hint at a complicated, poorly planed, production.
The movie will be shit.
>the legacy of shitty MMA fights and shitty writing
No, the legacy of great character focused drama and themes of love, friendship and family blooming in the battlefield.
Also cute girls being gay
>Its not an assumption, shitty character designs are only a symptom of the little respect and care they have for the characters
I see, I see. From this info, we can then conclude that Vivid Strike is shit! Man, I can't believe the obvious conclusion evaded us for so long.
>No, the legacy of great character focused drama and themes of love, friendship and family blooming in the battlefield.
Oh yes, that stuff IS in S1 and A's. It isn't in VS though, so I have no idea what you're talking about now.
I assume he meant timeline-wise. That's how I use that phrase, anyway.
I you can't appreciate the beauty of these character designs and how well crafted the relationships among the girls are I can't do nothing for you, you are clearly blind.
But I am curious, whats your opinion on the possible production issues reflection had? You forgot to tell me that
>the beauty of these character designs
I'm looking for it but I can't find any beauty besides Jill. Is that who you meant when you wrote that?
>and how well crafted the relationships among the girls are
The what now? They are all friends except Nove and Jill who serve a boss role. And that's it.
>But I am curious, whats your opinion on the possible production issues reflection had? You forgot to tell me that
What a masterful segue into a subject that has nothing to do with the main topic. I truly did not notice the attempt to change what we're talking about with the intent of making a yet-unreleased product look bad, thereby increasing the apparent quality of an already-released project which was already proven to be shit for the birds.
You are a sire and a master at communication.
They are all beautiful, not only the oldhag
>They are all friends
And I guess everyone in the old seasons is also just friends to you, right?
>What a masterful segue into a subject that has nothing to do with the main topic.
It is on topic. You asked me to back up my claims about the movie and thats one of two valid reasons I gave. The other one being the movie's shitty character designs and what that entails.
I don't need to increase the apparent quality of an already-released project which was already proven to be better than the past two seasons of Nanoha
>They are all beautiful, not only the oldhag
You mean "none of them is beatiful, only the oldhag". And isn't that just great? That in a installment of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, the only cute character is the adult?
>b-but the name is not...!
>And I guess everyone in the old seasons is also just friends to you, right?
Most of them are by the end of A's, bar stuff like Chrono and Lindy being superior officers and such. Difference is, I'm not gloating about them.
>You asked me to back up my claims about the movie
I never did that.
>the movie's shitty character designs
Oh, but Vivid Strike's shitty character designs are fine, aren't they?
>which was already proven to be better than the past two seasons of Nanoha
I don't know if you're referring to Vivid and Force or Vivid and StrikerS, but either way you're being fucking hilarious here, m8.
Oh yeah, the show is better than shit. Is it also better than Naruto? Wow, what an accomplishment! Here's a medal!
Sure mate, Whatever helps you sleep at night.
I sleep very soundly at night, thank you.
Now you go back to your group of non-Nanoha fans that pretend to be Nanoha fans because "bully beatdown lmao".
You mean Vivid strike threads, like this one?
So you admit this lot is made of no actual Nanoha fans besides me. Not that there ever was any doubt of that.
To be fair there are probably no actual strike fans besides me either.
We are kinda the only ones that are still here.
>how well crafted the relationships among the girls are
I have conflicted feelings about the way a certain someone develops her relationships.
This thread had over 100 posts when I found it. "there are no actual strike fans" my fucking ass. /u/'s Nanoha threads are stuffed with your type as well.
And just to demonstrate my point, >>152376526
I was talking about the thread.
That guy is the first post that is not us in a while
Whoops, sorry guys, let me patch that up right now.
>I hate everything after A's guy doesn't sleep
Why can we no longer have threads where we freely talk about Nanoha without someone triggering or getting triggered?
If even Rinne can be sunshine, then I'd love to see what other characters (preferably some that are worth a damn) are. Maybe some sort of intergalactic explosion?
>Why can we no longer have threads where we freely talk about Nanoha
I know, right? We had a good thing going with the Reflection threads but then the VS squad decided fun was forbidden.
What will it take to make you and the other guy stop with this triggering shit and let people post freely?
Uh, what? You want to talk about Nanoha or not? We can start now. Like, how about that translation for GoD? Did ron ever say if he was going to go ahead with it? Last time I checked, he was asking for opinions but I don't recall him giving a definitive answer one way or the other.
>Half of the posts were part of a Fate image dump, though.
It was me, Fate's stalker!
Well, outside the dump nobody was really saying anything which I think was due in part because of the 1-3 trolls who decide to do things like what's going on in this thread right now. It's getting tiring to make a post about either Nanoha or something Vivid and to get a shitpost reply in return.
I can't answer for Ron, man. I think if somebody was willing to
buy andupload it that he might be inclined to pop in again though.
There's that word again~
>I can't answer for Ron, man.
Of course not. But I'm just asking because I thought maybe ron already said he would or wouldn't do it and I just missed it. Apparently he didn't say anything yet though so that's that for that.
>buy and upload it
Buy and upload what? The game is already freely pirateable. Or did you mean something else?
>Fuuka is already airing
>Fuuka Reventon is still more popular on /a/ than Fuuka Akitsuki
Of course she is. No one cares about some girl who cant even take a truck to the face.
After watching Vivid Strike and having previously watched/read/played everything else from the series, I have to say I appreciate Fuuka and Rinne's relationship a little bit more than Nanoha and Fate's. I mean sure, NanoFate has the benefit of having been around for more than a decade and we see much more of their relationship, but as a beginning or origin story, I feel the way Fuuka and Rinne reunited as friends to be far more compelling than Nanoha and Fate becoming friends in the the first season.
What a surprised.
Nice, I'm glad someone translated it.
Wow, that was incredibly underwhelming.
It wasn't particularly funny, or cute.
This page was good, though.
The actual best moment relationship-wise in S1 is right here, where she realizes she isn't, and wasn't alone after all, and decides to rise to the occasion.
And all it took were two words from Bardiche.
Fuuka is the one copying everyone, stupid. And if you're talking about this here then it's the basic stance of Hegemon style. Don't ask me why Vivio does it.
Did the blonde loli get bullied for being the protagonist or something?
Vivio is pretty bad at being the protagonist.
At least she's not Miura
it's ok miura is too dumb to be sad for long
She's so pathetic, I hope she ends her life soon.
She would probably fuck it up anyway. Typical failure.
>pathetic thread that has to be repeatedly bumped from page 9 or 10 to stay up
Vivid Strike sure did save everything.
Why did you bump it?
Very funny implications, my man. Let's just ignore the post that was posted 1 minute and 35 seconds before mine just to act like a retard again.
Oh, haha, I get it. Now you're going to go full pretending to be retarded because it saves you the effort of coming up with stuff to bump the thread out of page 10 with.
I'll close this conversation by saying that Vivid Strike is the thing that caused all of this. It is the problem yet I'm the only one that's willing to acknowledge for some goddamn reason.
It actually saved it.
When will people understand that Vivio is not the protagonist and Vivid was always a battle harem starring Einhart.
Miura also felt like she was meant to be a protagonist when she was introduced.
Nothing bad ever happens to the blonde loli, while everything bad happens to the white haired girl. In fact, they had zero connection at all the entire show. I don't think they even said more than a paragraph to each other, so I still don't understand the point of their fight.
So, I sent an artist a message over pixiv asking if they would sell me a copy of an event only doujin if I gave them my address and paid them well over asking price for when they sold the doujin.
They replied and offered to send me a copy totally for free. Like, didn't even ask me to pay for shipping.
Now I'd feel like a total asshole if I scanned and translated it.
