Sounds like AoJ likes to shoot themselves in the foot. I cant see how doing these type of business practices can be beneficial in the long run seeing how the majority of the shows that they dont want to be licensed or streamed is simply just put on the net illegally with no potential of a pay off.

It would at least make a smidgen of sense if their Blu-ray releases in Japan (which share the same region code as the US) had English subtitles, but except for the two Nanoha movies, that hasn't been the case.

The released Blu-ray box versions of the first two series late last year, and despite the fact they should have had access to the subtitles Geneon used for the US release, those discs had none. Naturally, the StrikerS release early this year didn't have them (which is probably a good thing for my budget, as even without them, I was tempted).

I hope Aniplex Japan isn't buying into the same type of rhetoric some people in the music industry have been spouting recently (i.e., that streaming "devalues" their product). Although at least in that case, you can at least buy the product.


I don't plan on viewing any fansubs of Dog Days'' of ViVid, but it would be difficult to condemn anyone that does (except for those fortunate souls in parts of Asia that have access to the former legally on CR).

Frankly, I've never been much of one for condemning people for viewing fansubs when they have no prospect of viewing a show legally except by importing a DVD or BD that doesn't have a language they understand and may not play in their player.

Viewing fansubs for shows one has ready access to legally, however, is quite the opposite. Even if one pulls out the "fansubs are have better subtitles and/or better video" excuse, that doesn't prevent them from playing the lowest resolution copy of a legal stream in the background while they are doing homework or some other activity, so that the stream revenue for a viewing is allocated to that publisher.

That was fun. It'll take a while to get used to the character models as the last time I saw any Nanoha was StrikerS.

Perhaps I should also refresh a little on StrikerS as it didn't click immediately who Nove was...

Never seen any of Magical Lyrical Nanoha... I guess it must be pretty good if it's still going on.

Nanoha and fate are very fapable together from the looks of it, so I should pick this show up

You may want to make it clear you are referring to the in ViVid if you mention that elsewhere, as they were only 8-9 years old in the first two series.

StrikerS was the first series where they were adults, although A's ended with a brief segment where they appeared to be in their early teens.

They're often shipped as a Yuri couple to boot, though nothing more suggestive than a single double bed and the fact that Vivio has two mamas has ever been explicit in the show.

I know... that means it's up to my dirty mind. And I'm pretty imaginative when it comes to things like that

The good news is Nanoha's parents own a bake shop so no problem with a cake should they make it official.

Vivio is totes NanoFate's yuri-magic lovechild. Totes.

Hmm. If the show's not going to be here then.. well.. you gotta do what you gotta do.

Episode 2


I suppose this series will flesh out Einhard's character as it goes. Cute girl though but she has a strange personality.

Action was okay I suppose. Wasn't too impressed by it but if they adapt this right to the later arc, then it should get better. On another note, holy Fate.

I assume you are referring to the shower scene SC had some stills from in an article there.

Episode 3


Heh that was cute.

It looks like Einhart defeated Vivio in her adult form this episode in the second half. Kinda curious about her full power though. And also, more buildup in the backgrounds. I think A-1 is also putting quite a lot of budget into this transformation scenes..

Episode 4

Aww, the beginning of a lasting friendship. Episode felt slow but I guess we'll see more potentials from Einhart.
