Give it to me straight, doc. Am I really the only person who is excited for Reflection and what it will bring to the Nanoha franchise?
Right off the bat with this one.
So I really am the only person left who cares about Nanoha anymore.
I want to put my benis inside Nanoha.
It's a good thing then that Reflection has nothing to do with it.
I'm excited for the Materials. I hope they show up.
Please either discuss Reflection or leave the premises. And take your bag of shit with you.
Oh, you mean like how you allowed everyone to discuss Strike uninterrupted in the last thread?
Get in line.
Just Levi here.
>condemning a "shitty Fate recolor"
>while defending a shitty Fate ripoff
Why are VSfags so stupid?
My interest on the movie will be directly proportional to the amount of screentime the Wolkenritter gets in it.
Most likely. It'd still be nice to see 'em, even if just as a sequel hook.
You heard that right. At least the PSP games were still distinctly Nanoha.
I don't like the new designs, the faces look off.
Other than that it looks promising and I'm looking forward to it.
A shame the shitposting has gone so bad since Vivid Strike, had they announced the movie before this could have been avoided.
That's just the designs, even Vita is affected by them. The new designer draws faces like that and that's it.
Not him, but I do think this new designs are definitely a downgrade even when seen in motion, the movies already have the perfect designs.
The only thing better are the weapons.
I like Nanoha, but this isn't Nanoha. That that I thought she's ever coming back in a franchise that wants nothing to do with lolicon anymore at least in animated form.
They should've gone with a full blown StrikerS movie, right after A's.
Instead of ViShit.
ViVid strike (as its own brand) was pretty nice tho.
>ViVid strike (as its own brand) was pretty nice tho.
VS should have been its own thing, completely separate from Nanoha. It would have been received a lot more favourably if it had been.
They wouldn't do that. It'd be too based.
no it's not
no it's not
>Sorry, I don't want to clutter up the screen with 3 more shit characters
The StrikerS, Vivid, Strike and Force casts won't be appearing though, so you're clear for landing there.
I don't think I'll ever forget spending the night before my birthday OCRing those subs.
I miss Sendo. Now instead of a couple of cool namefags we have 3 dedicated shitposters each one with their own unique quirks.
What is even the point of an adult mode anyway?
>le beeg bouncay aeneemay tiddies ayy
Just have a fucking adult character and be done with it. Signum and such still exist so it's not like it's forbidden or anything.
First off, there were no loli nipples, and second, nobody said that those 2 movies in particular followed Nanoha's trend, but they're nothing more than mere recap movies so who cares.
>under the guise
No, director is probably sincere about it. Mid-Childa doesn't gives a shit about 9yo soldiers, it even praises it as an example for everyone to follow, I doubt they give a shit about naked kids.
As long as they have plenty of screentime that would be tolerable. They'll job at first but with proper screentime we'll see them climb back from that and do some super awesome thing on round 2/climax. Usually that's how it works.
Besides, Signum is in the trailer with a new outfit. Their jobbing is practically unavoidable at this point so it's better to thing how to work around that.
I'm really unhappy with the designs (besides Hayate who looks perfect as usual) but I'm excited to see Ace in her prime.
And even more excited to have some talking devices again.
Because the thought of seeing the White Devil incident in movie animation gives me the biggest boner
Without implying a StrikerS movie (or a StrikerS anything) would be a good idea, they already are in the middle of a two movie project. Reflection is the first one of the set.
Don't bully me. I liked StrikerS despite it's flaws.
Are you the guy who despises StrikerS so much he thinks everyone who liked StrikerS is not a true Nanoha fan?
What's stupid? Not caring about movies? They are one-shot short crap I could never get invested in anyhow not to mention we only get our hands on it after we've seen every exciting scene or screenshots of it.
I honestly can't tell who is trolling who in this thread.
What kind of argument is that? Nanoha is a spinoff of Triangle Hearts, they are related but separate things.
StrikerS is a direct sequel to A's. It takes place in the same universe with the same versions of the characters. It even has "Nanoha" in the title so you can't even try to remove it on a technicality like some people try to do with VS.
For a moment I thought this was a Gabriel Dropout thread.
So they aren't actually fans, I don't see what the problem is here. If you don't like what the franchise actually is - exemplified perfectly in S1 and A's - then you don't like the franchise.
For fuck's sake, it was an example. Okay, let's do this another way.
Oh gee, I really liked Vivid Life, guise. I'm totes a Nanoha fan now.
Oh don't give yourself too much credit.
I care about Nanoha, I mean loli Nanoha, but she's already gone canonically, so I just don't care about some flashback movie. I might as well get some hilarious stuff out of it.
I'M SORRY I JUST LOVE SATANIA SO MUCH
Hey come on no need to be a "no fun allowed" guy
>For fuck's sake, it was an example. Okay, let's do this another way.
>Oh gee, I really liked Vivid Life, guise. I'm totes a Nanoha fan now.
Okay, assuming I agree with your point, which I don't because it's still just as stupid, how does proving that liking Vivid Lifa means you aren't a true Nanoha fan, prove liking StrikerS makes you not a true Nanoha fan?
Sorry, I CARED about loli Nanoha, past tense.
But she doesn't exist anymore canonically, so why would I care about a "sometime-in-the-past" type of movie?
I hardly care about movies anyways but this is like the worst kind of movie.
You should, since I hate Vivid Strike.
Frankly Nanoha is a dead franchise to me, I just can't get off the cursed sinking ship.
But yeah, movies are the one thing that I really, really don't give a shit, I'd still care if a new series were to come out.
>Frankly Nanoha is a dead franchise to me, I just can't get off the cursed sinking ship.
I can relate.
You know what, you're an alright person.
Apparently, aside from Reflection and the 4th movie. 7arcs has plans to make 2 new TV series for Nanoha franchise. They are "gathering the best staffs, and aiming for a new "Nanoha" that is even more fascinating than it has ever been the past".
>They are one-shot short crap
This is going to have two movies. If they're 2+ hours each like the first two movies that will be over four hours in total, which is the same as a full season.
>even more fascinating than it has ever been the past
Oh no please. Let me translate: even more mecha, edgy, adult main leads, and obviously no Nanoha?
I want to kick their faces full force if that's going to happen, and they arrogantly think they are somehow making a better Nanoha than ever.
That's still just two movies for all I care. They could have 8 hours of playtime, they're still just movies which I consider eye candy little thingies and don't give a crap about.
Well I like all four of those, as well as their manga and Sound Stage tie-ins
I also like the movies, the games, and Vivid.
So explain to me please how I can't exist.
I hope so. I never read Force because it was on "hiatus" by the time I started the first season, but I have trouble believing it's as bad as people say, given that many of those same people say StrikerS is shit.
I can just see them being shit right now. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, though. We haven't seen if Reflection is good or not yet.
That's what I'm doing.
And I'm getting pretty sick of your insinuations that I can't like both loli and adult Hayate. I've tried to be calm but I can only be pushed so far.
I'm sure it'll be at least as good as Strike.
Oh god. I just remembered the Fuuka spammer.
The threads are going to fucking suck.
Hayate is best girl, no matter what form she takes.
Nothing wrong with Fuuka. She did save Nanoha after all.
I wonder if the anon that was looking for you yesterday, implying that you weren't around anymore to continue to shit things up, can see this right now.
>Sure doesn't seem like it.
The only thing I've done is say "I like both Strikers and the first two seasons as well." What about that sentiment implies that I wouldn't enjoy being in a Nanoha thread? Or at least one that had less shitposting in it than this?
>What about that sentiment implies that I wouldn't enjoy being in a Nanoha thread?
>Or at least one that had less shitposting in it than this?
You know you could just stop this shit and talk about the movie instead of bringing trash shows into a discussion that has fuck-all to with them.
I don't think Force is "that" bad but I still would put it at the bottom of my Nanoha list. It has some good design and an average story but unlike Strikers or Vivid, I couldn't bring myself to care about any of its new characters so every supposedly emotional or high points of the story just feel flat and dull to me. The terrible artstyle doesn't do the battle scenes any justice either.
Is there anything new to talk about? If not then our options are
>Let the thread die
>Talk about the Nanoha franchise in a more general sense
Don't try to change what I said.
I could name a hundred things from S1 or A's that are cuter than that ugly mushroom. Hell, there's stuff in the Reflection PV that are cuter too.
You should try being less grumpy about everything.
You know what always cheers me up?
You should try not posting if the slightest challenge triggers you.
In fact, let's make it a big challenge so you're justified: Asteon isn't cute, his name has a badass feel to it despite not being badass because false advertising is awesome, his owner is ugly and an aborted Fate ripoff and he looks like a generic mascot character. Doesn't even have the charm and humor Yuuno did, Tio is just there to pad out the VA list because why the hell not. And before you post them, the idiot rabbit and the cat with Down's Syndrome aren't cute either.
Not my fault people actively refuse to have good taste.
>You should try not posting if the slightest challenge triggers you.
I'm not triggered though. I just said maybe it would be better to calm down a little, as you seem disproportionately upset over someone posting a picture you didn't like.
>In fact, let's make it a big challenge so you're justified:
I'm not the person who posted the picture, I just thought you were overreacting.
>Tio is just there to pad out the VA list because why the hell not.
How do you pad the VA list of a manga? Because that's all Vivid was for most of it's history.
>trolls making troll threads to trigger trolls to troll each other in
So I guess we aren't going to have threads about Nanoha instead of trolls until the movie is out on BD next year.
>until the movie is out on BD next year.
It's cute that you think that will make things any better.
Why do you think that? Naturally when fanbases are lacking in new material things get a little worse. The movie is sure to generate some interest from old fans again and if it does well we can start talking about the two new anime to come.
Because I have no faith in this fanbase anymore, the threads since VS aired has beat it out of me. So I'm just going to enjoy the Movies and Shows while not expecting these threads to be anything but progressively bigger piles of shit.
Or you could talk about the goddamn movie like I keep telling you to. What you hope, what you expect, speculation, the Materials or lack thereof, anything. Although I guess that's not as interesting as stupid metadrama, is it?
It sucks to be with a show for years and to have very few places to talk about it due to the fact it's not Naruto popular and then to have one of the last places destroyed over stupid troll shit.
The problem is that we could talk about the movie but it will lead to talk about Vivid and Vivid Strike or this guy >>152455182 will beat down any positive talk of any kind. Like the other Anon, some of us are tired of having to walk on eggshells or filter discussions to make one angry guy happy.
STRIKERS REMAKE CONFIRMED.
>tfw it's gonna be 10 years since StrikerS aired
>The problem is that we could talk about the movie but it will lead to talk about Vivid and Vivid Strike
That makes no fucking sense and you know it. The only reason anything would "lead to talk about Vivid and Vivid Strike" is because we have this >>152455298 asshat pushing all conversation into that direction.
We've already done that. We have wrung every bit of speculation we could out of the minuscule information we have. Talking further about the movie is pointless until we have more to talk about.
Unless you have some insight you're hiding? If not, then let the thread be a general purpose Nanoha series thread.
You seem a bit mad Anon. I'm sorry it hurts you some people liked StrikerS
Are we getting our Olive spin off?
>Unless you have some insight you're hiding?
I never see anyone speculate about the completely new character we're getting.
Oh, I'd LOVE to have more Vivid shit! That's totally not what destroyed the franchise and put us where we are right now to begin with!
Bullshit. You're just spamming pictures of girls that have nothing to do with Nanoha. You're no better than the retarded VS spammer.
Oh it's you again. You're very easy to anger by the way.
ANYWAYS, I see no problem with a StrikerS movie that cuts out all the filler.
>talk about the movie guys
>anon himself isn't providing any insight but spamming pics
>simply mention any other part of the series
It is completely impossible unless one of you is living in moonland and can provide some kind of news we don't know about yet.
Why did you spoiler it? I don't remember getting any kind of hints about her. I mean could she be a new Florian model or a new villain?
We don't know what role their playing, whether they're a good guy or bad, and we have no idea what they'll look like.
I enjoy throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks as much as the next guy, but I need something to work with.
I'm sorry to be a killjoy, but everyone is looking forward to Reflection
Here's the sad part: It's not going to be anything more than an alternate universe retelling of either the same Nanoha story or a soft-reboot. It will not have the things you want to see, and will leave with more questions than answers. If you're lucky, it might have good animation; Maybe. If you're lucky.
This is 7arcs after all.
It's not going to be the savior of the franchise like people are making it out to be. ViviD will still remain the only continuation the series gets, and Force will remain the last-known point in the series if it's ever not-retconned.
That said, I am looking forward to it because I want cool and classic Fate to return instead of codependent whiny Fate.
>It's not going to be anything more than an alternate universe retelling of either the same Nanoha story or a soft-reboot.
And that's the point where you revealed you know jack shit about what you're talking about.
I stopped giving a fuck about nanoha franchise, during the first 4 episodes of strikers. downloaded the first 2 movies and watched them jumping from a lot, could not give a shit enough, to watch them completely.
We will always have Vivid Strike to fall back on.
It's even worse than I thought.
>The fucking previews have them as little girls again
>hrhr I wonder what kind of story it will be
And that's the point where you revealed that you know jack shit about what you're talking about.
Go slap the backs of your hands together elsewhere.
I'll probably still like it. I have remarkably low standards when it comes to Nanoha works.
Nothing, we will continue on just like we always did.
If it's good, then great. If it's bad, then it will get written off into the pile like Force did.
People expecting it to be the best thing ever are setting themselves up for disappointment.
Or maybe learn basic communication. You meant to say the same KIND of story, jackass.
And in case, isn't that better than shitty adult Nanoha going uguu on a beach with Vivio for two and a half hours?
Agreed, it's probably gonna be average at best.
C'mon, you know you love her.
>Or maybe learn basic communication. You meant to say the same KIND of story, jackass.
That wasn't what I said. I'm sorry you can't fucking read. It's fairly obvious to someone with a functioning eyes and a brain what that post meant. In fact, I'm not even sure what the point of you replying to me was if you're going to sperg out over your inability to understand my post.
>And in case, isn't that better than shitty adult Nanoha going uguu on a beach with Vivio for two and a half hours?
Literally not even what I said or the point of the post you responded to initially.
Lots of words to say "i k-know english g-good, idiot y-you!"
And that was just an exaggerated example, dumbass. Would you rather have the "same Nanoha story" or something completely fucking pants-on-head retarded like Vivid?
Look forward to Tsuzuki hopefully going back to the drawingboard, polling fans and applying the new feedback to the future anime. I'm not going to believe it will be the "savior" of the franchise but considering that Tsuzuki took fan opinions this time I'm gonna believe it will be the start of a recovery.
They fucked up by putting the continuation of their story in a story that went on hiatus, really.
I think this is their attempt to escape that rut. They can't go back to techni-magic battles without addressing the big Elephant in the room, so instead they're just going to ignore it and make something different. Kind of what ViviD Strike ended up being.
I wouldn't call myself a Vivid Strike fan, I like all of Nanoha equally.
>Vivid Strike fans are part of the fandom too.
Symphogear fans are more Nanoha fans than Vivid Strike fans are.
>I wouldn't call myself a Vivid Strike fan, I like all of Nanoha equally.
So you're not a fan of anything, you're here to shitpost good threads only.
Nanoha is NOT a lolicon franchise anymore, the vast majority who still care are certainly not in for them.
So no, they're not going back to lolis, just to lose the "broader audience appeal" they won with StrikerS.
One movie won't change anything.
>Lots of words to say "i k-know english g-good, idiot y-you!"
Or how about this: You're so fucking stupid that you can't read a post on 4chan. So you threw a temper tantrum over your clear inability to understand a post. That's embarrassing, and I'm embarrassed for you.
>And that was just an exaggerated example, dumbass.
Then WHY ARE YOU EVEN RESPONDING? HOLY SHIT ARE YOU JUST HERE TO PUSH US TO AUTOSAGE?
>Would you rather have the "same Nanoha story" or something completely fucking pants-on-head retarded like Vivid?
This wasn't part of my post or even anything that I posted. You brought that up because you're seemingly frustrated that I do not believe Reflection will be the second coming of christ.
Stop responding to me.
>Symphogear fans are more Nanoha fans than Vivid Strike fans are.
Please, stop. Please, I'm begging you.
The fact that the loudest people would prefer to argue with each other instead of talk about the series has me questioning their motives.
>tfw still waiting for the guy who said to talk about the movies to actually talk about the movies instead of shitposting with or as the Vivid Strike guy
>This wasn't part of my post or even anything that I posted.
I bet your short-term memory loss is really troublesome in real life. But okay, I won't reply anymore, try not to forget that.
That's the lesson you've chosen to learn from this?
Nothing is wrong with Strike, but that branch of the franchise has no future really.
How many times can we re-do the same adventures of the same tiny kids as they progressively age by year? How many times can we re-do the same tournament arcs?
Vivid was an interesting side story, but it's time to look to the future. The future is going to be Nanoha and Fate.
I already tried but everyone else would rather shitpost. You can't talk about Nanoha in /a/ anymore. Thanks, Vivid, Vivid Strike, Tsuzuki. All great stuff.
Go back to my first post and find where I said that I preferred Vivid to classic Nanoha, oh wait, you can't, because I never said that or even implied it anywhere in my post. I didn't even talk about currently running franchises.
Now don't let your embarrassment make you reply to me again.
I still hold that Strike would have been way better if it weren't a tournament series.
If it were about Fuuka's street fight adventures, then I'm almost certain that Nanoha fans would also be Strike fans.
Hayateguy, please dump your folder. As you can see nobody is actually interested in anything but arguing with trolls and we don't get to see Hayate enough anymore. Fateguy, if you're here you should do the same as well.
Like I said.
Nobody is being allowed to post anything without someone shitting on them. I was right. Post more blue Fate. She's a darling.
>nothing wrong with Strike
Am I allowed to think that being a fight show for shounen demographic with leads being bad/cruel people is a bad thing, along with everyone turning into full adult mode for fights?
Because what I liked about Nanoha was an angelic, yet total bad ass powerhouse, in a magical girl/mecha hybrid high tension series.
This please. Hayate is actually what I'm looking forward to the most in Reflection.
Hayate and her knights were my favorite characters.
No, I'd just really appreciate it if you'd stop.
My folder isn't anything special, but I'll dump for awhile
>Am I allowed to think that being a fight show for shounen demographic with leads being bad/cruel people is a bad thing, along with everyone turning into full adult mode for fights?
No you can't. Vivid Strike is the Greatest Anime of All Time and you are not allowed to disagree.
>Because what I liked about Nanoha was an angelic
But Nanoha is a demon. The most terrifying demon.
The Yagami family is the best.
I just wish I could find pictures of the whole family that don't look like ass.
I'm thinking we need to do waifu dumps every time a thread is started and progressed in this manner. If we can't have decent conversation, we should at least be able to have nice things to look at.
Special enough. Please go ahead.
I can try, but my picture folder is a mess. I have absolutely everything lumped into a single folder.
Hayate was the only thing I liked about StrikerS.
Her and pic related. Do you think Reflection will even have Caro or Erio?
Vivio is cute with everyone
If I know my shitposters, this is gonna attract Crusader-kun.
I didn't like Caro and Erio, I don't know why though.
Doesn't matter. Take your time and post whatever you can find.
Well, you wanted to shitpost so congratulations.
Did these two even interact much in Vivid? I don't even know.
I need to order all of this somehow.
Fuck off, this all happened because of you.
You're posting bad witches. Stop it.
>I didn't like Caro and Erio, I don't know why though.
Their development is very sloppy, and I don't even think it was ever hinted that Fate even thinks of them as their adoptive children despite the fact that she should have the same relationship with them as with Vivio.
That said, they're both as cute as a button. I hope reflection as them as children again.
See lads, told you he'd come. Now he's not gonna leave.
I think one of the StrikerS sound stages goes into their relationship pretty well.
I may be misremembering though.
Just because he's here doesn't mean we have to give him attention.
Aren't you happy? He's here to back you up.
And stop treating us like idiots, we already know him far better than you do.
>For FUCKING YEARS STRAIGHT before you showed up there was never crack posted in Nanoha threads.
Why is he lying?
Hear, hear. Keep up it up, Anons. Especially materials.
Not in any relevant universe.
This is the only TH3 pic I have
Remember when we shipped anyone with anyone for pure entertainment? I do too.
Still my favorite Fuuka pic.
Refute >>152456703 or go away.
>Reflection won't show them. Hell I'm pretty sure Teana and Subaru just be toddlers.
PLEASE NO I WANT THEM TO FIGHT ALONGSIDE NANOFATE
>And I like how you keep trying to fake your file names
What the fuck does that even mean?
I believe he accuses people of posting the way he does.
$20 well spent to see my golden goddess drown out autistic shitflinging.
For some reason it's cuter than expected.
It's probably Yuuno's most common pairing after Yuunoha itself.
I think I'm the only one who recognizes how great Yuuno x Hayate is, but one day the world will share my vision.
That's because he only showed up in the Nanoha threads sometime in 2013 a couple of weeks after the Movie 2nd BDs dropped.
I've never claimed to be anything other than an average Fate fan. Possibly below average.
Hayate is where it's at.
I don't know where you got the idea that I would have the motivation to do that, but to let you in on a secret I'm actually quite lazy.
>It's terrible... Nanoha...
>What's wrong, Yuuno-kun?
>Not just on the outside but on the INSIDE too!
Oh. My god.
I remember the fun we used to have speculating on pairings and what they did on their time off.
In a way, I wish it never happened because it's what caused the Yuuno/Nanoha Fate/Nanoha arguments that destroyed nanofate.
Ah don't respond to him. He quotes everybody and calls them samefag.
Nah. It was a/u/tism and AnimeSuki that caused the shipping arguments. /a/ just got caught in the middle of their wars.
Because it got deleted I'll just say it again.
Oh you fucking wish. As far as the universe is concerned, they're irrelevant trash.
Actually oh shit we might be getting Innocents as a TV series.
Worst part about Vivid going the way of the dodo is Sieg.
I wanted more Sieg.
Maybe she will be the MC of one of the new TV series.
Now that HE'S here. I'd like to ask everyone a question.
What happened to the VS/Fuuka poster and the Nanoha is only good before A's poster?
Oh fuck now I will not be able to unsee that.
He consumed their essence to enhance his own shitposting. Every time you think you see one of them posting, it's actually their essence taking control of him for a brief moment.
That's a little, well, a lot gross.
Do you think they spend their day drinking tea and gossiping about filthy things like the lonely christmas cakes they are?
>As far as the universe is concerned, they're irrelevant trash.
That is NOT TRUE, and you know it.
They were the stars of StrikerS. StrikerS had flaws, but it was far from irrelevant.
Besides, Subaru is still best girl's sister.
