Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS
(魔法少女リリカルなのはStrikerS, Mahō Shōjo Ririkaru Nanoha Sutoraikāzu
?) is the third season of the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
series. The Nanoha
anime was, in turn, a spin-off of the Triangle Heart
series of games and OVAs, specifically Triangle Heart 3: Sweet Songs Forever
. This season aired shortly after the promotional event "Lyrical Party III" scheduled on April 1, 2007.
takes place after the epilogue of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's
, aired between October and December 2005. While the epilogue connected A's
to a world six years later, StrikerS
advances the timeline another four years, where the main characters have gone on to work for the Time-Space Administration Bureau (TSAB) and come upon a new case. The series focuses more on team-based battles and bureaucracy rather than individual rivalry and school life, due to the change in character dynamics.
A special sound stage, under the name of StrikerS Sound stage X
will be released in Autumn 2008 on October 29. The story takes place 3 years after the events of StrikerS and continues the story of the 4 recruits of Section 6: Subaru, Teana, Erio and Caro, along with Vivio and the rest of the other Numbers.
