Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Newbie


I have heard about Nanoha alot. I knew there were loads of figures. I knew it was a magical girl series. And that it looked cute. But I’d never really felt that fussed about watching it. BUT after finally watching Code Geass, I felt I should look into some fan-favourites that I had passed up before. This being one of ’em. And I confess… I’m already being tempted by the figma’s….. It might just be because of the staffs that come with them though… So cool… and tiny… Hauuuu….

I’m on episode *thinks* 4 I think. I’ve wanted to get like 2 eps a night watched, but I think sleep has been more tempting lol. And now Uni is pretty much finished I can get more watched, stay up stupidly late and sleep in stupidly late lol. I plan to get at least 5 and 6 watched tonight. Maybe even 7… its only 13 long though…. I’ve gotten used to 24 eps lol. Though Rideback was only 12.

I love her high collared jumper. High-wide collars are mucho cute. Like oversized boots.

 I haven’t watched a proper magical girl series in YONKS. I mean proper magical girl series, like CCS, with staffs and cute little critters and transformations to boot. (Love the transformation sequence in MSLN, so pretty. Really nice animation.) I’d forgotten why I liked them lol, I had to force myself to sit down and watch Nanoha. I should do that when I continue Shugo Chara too… otherwise I’ll just stop it again…

I love the bit the staff is built around the raging heart(Raising Heart? In the sub I have its Raging, but on ANN its listed as Raising….) jewel. Kirei.

I've only got as far as Fate being introduced. No Hayate yet.(Only know name due to figma version lol.)

Nanoha’s charm is very endearing. I’m waiting to see how Fate has become more popular frankly…. cos Nanoha’s kind of moe seems hard to beat… Got no clue about Hayate. But she’s in Saimoe too, so I’m guessing she’s moe enough. Anyways, I’m definately gonna stick with it, unless I get mindnummingly bored by it lol. I hope I don’t. It’s giving back my taste for Mahou Shoujo series, which means more dling lol.

Pre and post henshin. And Yuuno! I hope we see more of Yuuno. Un-ferret Yunno too.

When I first heard Nanoha talk I was like, ‘OMG RIKA-CHAN!’ Always disturbing to hear Higurashi girls in other roles for me lol. Though this was first lol. And when I heard Fate I knew I recognised her voice too… I’m good at recognising the voices, but I haven’t got all the names down yet… Anyways, Nana Mizuki, Fate, she’s in 2 series that are ending this season, Rideback(LOVE) and White Album. Both characters have very similar names… Rin Ogata and Rina Ogata. Weird coincidence? lol. Must be. She was also Shinobu in Ninja Nonsense(mental series… lol) and the only character in Naruto that I didn’t hate lol, Hinata Hyuuga. As for Nanoha’s seiyuu Yukari Tamura, I knew she was Rika Furude in Higurashi, what I didn’t know is she was Mei Sunohara in Clannad! And a whole bunch of other characters in anime I’ve seen lol. Like Mai in Kanon. And Michiru(who I don’t really remember lol) in Air.


Righto… now me thinks I’ll attempt to install some stuff or play some games… or just idle on the net lol. Or maybe watch some more Nanoha! lol. There really is nothing on tv tonight… Not even any decent repeats.

    Given my unbridled hatred of moe, I am loath to say this, but the Nanoha series is actually pretty damn good.

    I couldn’t get myself to finish the first season, but Nanoha As easily stands as one of the best animes I’ve seen in recent years.

    And Nanoha StrikerS has a character who’s basically a human GaoGaiGar, which is crazy cool.

    This is another series I want to get in to. I never thought I’d be the one for magical girl animes, but it looks like I’m a sucker for them. And I am interested to see what the big deal is, because I think that she’s today’s equivalent of CCS’s Sakura? And I love me some CCS. As soon as exams let out I’m gonna get me some of this, now that I know the series isn’t that long ❤

    The first season was nothing compared to the second. Season one was good but Season two was FANTASTIC. To date, it’s still one of my favourite sequels ever. Atm, I’m rewatching it again in R1 format. ^^

    It’s great ur finally into it. Know u know why fans are raving about it. lol

    Despite being called Magical Girl lyrical Nanoha, the show only has a few staples of the Magical Girl Genre.
    The show itself is also very un-magical girl like, except for the transformation sequences and the early “gotta collect the items” plotline.

    I guess that’s why I actually enjoyed the 3 series to a point. A’s was a very good sequel tho and Innocent starter is one of my favourite anime songs.

    I rushed Nanoha and Nanoha A’s, first season < second season like a zillion times. More explosions, actions, fighting sequences. Not Mahou Shoujo anymore, in a way 😛

  6. ELTboy Says:

    I didn’t actually think much of the first season. Nanoha A’s is tons better and the pace is quite breathtaking. Hayate was also introduced in A’s. I remembered that I finished A’s in a whirlwind. It is very very good. Enjoy the series. ^^

    @Meimi-chan: Eh, magical, schmagical, lol… Heyyy, speaking of schmagical, how’s Chimichanga doing? LOL! Actually, all these titles reminds me how far behind I am (we all are!). After “Clannad – AS”, just finished “Tsubasa – S1”, almost finished with “Rurouni Kenshin – S2”, plus halfway thru “Dennou Coil”, hehe. Not to mention live-action stuff like “Shinobi” and “Red Cliff II”, gahhh.

    P.S. Oh yeah, speaking of live-action, did u ever catch my recent “Assassins” post mentioning Tatsuya Fujiwara and Shun Oguri? ^_~

    I believe you will not be bored, because it only gets better with every episode. And then comes Nanoha A’s that is much better than the first season and then Nanoha StrikerS that absolutely rocks, IMHO. But people often prefer A’s.
    In the end of first season you will definitely have understood why Fate is loved more than Nanoha.
