Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha) (魔法少女リリカルなのは)
Takamachi Nanoha is a very normal third-grade elementary school student.
One day, when he is going to a cram school, he listens to someone saying help me. Following the voice, he meets a ferret that got injured.
At the night that the ferret was taken to a veterinary hospital when Nanoha is getting ready to sleep, she again listens to a voice.
“Please… help me”
Following the voice, she is going back to the hospital, she finds that a strangely formed monster is fighting with the ferret.
After Nanoha saves the ferret that is about to be killed, the ferret suddenly starts talking.
His name is Yuuno Scrya.
Actually, he is a witch living in a different world, and can transform his body into an animal (a small animal like a ferret).
The reason that he came to this world is that although he found heritages in the different world called “Jewel Seeds”, he splattered them to this world and tries to collect them.
Nanoha has a potential to be able to use magic, while Yuuno asks her to lend the power.
Although Nanoha understands the situation and gets perplexed, she finally decides to help Yuuno to collect Jewel Seeds and get them back together with Yuuno.
During collecting Jewel Seeds, she meets a girl also collecting them, Fate Testarossa…
If you think that this work contains the traditional magical girl story! it is not totally correct…
In the first half, the main part is about looking for Jewel Seeds, but in the middle, since a girl called Fate appears who has blonde hair and sad eyes, the atmosphere of the story is totally changed.
Although Nanoha and Fate are against each other because they have different purposes to look for Jewel Seeds at first, Fate starts opening her mind by knowing Nanoha’s kindness and strength, and finally, their friendship is getting created.
I really got moved at Nanoha’s straightforward attitude that she really wants to help Fate by looking for Jewel Seeds!
This is not just a normal Moe* anime! This is more like a passionate anime which describes “friendship, connections, and struggling”!
(*Moe is a Japanese word meaning “super cute” which is often used to describe cute young girls in anime by men.)
Such a powerful fighting scene and a passionate friendship…
I couldn’t help crying at the last episode. (ρ＿；)
Now the anime has been broadcasted until the third season.
Also, the movie got 2 episodes open already, and the new anime is planning to be open in the autumn of 2016.
Nanoha’s 10 years progress is well-described and all of them cannot be missed!
