Coming from someone who enjoys Princess Tutu and Cutie Honey: God dammit... /a/, I just can't fucking watch this. It feels wrong in every way. Just... NO.
It's a shit show, that's why you're feeling like that
My money says, you are a fag or never got past episode 3.
Three episodes of kicking mahou shoujo clichés to the kerb, then getting to be fuckwin with Gundams in skirts.
I watched 3 minutes and stopped
Nanoha is one of the best magical girl shows ever released. It completly breaks the genre's cliches and stereotypes after the first few episodes. A's was pretty good. StrikerS would have been better if she had gone berserk.
What's wrong OP? It's a good magical girl show with humor and fap worthy girls. What more do you want?
Thats only true if he's watching season 3
What's the matter OP, too GREAT SERIES for you?
Seriously, this is obviously aimed at little girls, or pedophile 30something nerds with the intellect of litle girls. I hate everything: the generic animu style with a mass-produced feel, the music, the voice acting, the rotoscoped animation, EVERYTHING.
But I'll keep watching anyway since I always hate things at first glance. This shit better be worth it. ;_;
You better make a thread expressing your love for it when you finish A's fag
This is a feel good animu about deep friendship.
And Fate's ass.
Admit it. The first thing you will saw is the explosion.
That's not right at all. You've got to be smarter than the girl to trick her into the back of your van.
heh heh, that explosion looks like butt-cheeks
It's actually kinda interesting to re-watch the first couple of eps looking for cliches.
Ep 1: Classic Mahou Shoujo first ep. Little animal needing help, scary monster out of nowhere, stupid passphrase to start transformation....
Ep 2: Shit! Forgot that stupid passphrase! "Stand By, Ready. Setup" Sweet!
Ep 3: "But we need to do that magic girl crap of climbing through this magic forest to..." "Shooting mode: Setup" "Wait, what?!"
Nanoha is a Top Tier Loli, what the fuck OP. What the fuck.
Now do it for the rest of the episodes
it's gonna take a while seeing as the only available season 1 torrent is slow as shit.
does it become really epic later like Princess Tutu did or is it just stupid kawaii animated soap opera relationship bullshit all the way through
What explosion? Fapping at the speed of light again.
where can I find non shit versions of season 1 and 2 and by non shit I mean NOT AVI.
A maid is fine too.
Princess Tutu and Cutie Honey? wtf?
No. Nanoha is nothing like those shows so saying that you liked those is irrelevant. I don't actually remember the first season much but I do remember that season 2 had beams, hammers and snake swords.
OP you wouldn't happen to be the same guy that was looking for DGz subs a couple of days ago looking to get into Nanoha?
You get high speed high voltage aerial combat, worlds threatening perils and an ending scene that will have you shouting "Just kiss her, you idiot!"
oh and I also enjoy Mahou Shoujotai thanks to 4c's involvement but that's as far as shoujo shit goes for me
Yeah, that was me. I'm ashamed to admit that I've already gotten used to the art style.
As a Nanoha fan I do have to admit that the show's art feels very mass produced.
Lasers, Beamspam, German Hammers, engrish, Swords and Scythes more than make up for that.
Fuck yes German hammers!
Agreed. Nanoha is less mahou shoujo and more mecha-with-little-girls.
Especially in S1 where they fight robots in space.
where the fuck is my S4?! ;_;
I thought Diebuster was incredibly awesome, ignoring the ending and LOLDRAMA in episodes 5-6. does that count?
Diebuster is space opera with mechas, and the ending is fuckwin. You fail.
Diebuster is mecha
not mecha as little girls
blah blah blah yeah Nono was still a buster machine
Nanoha and Fate were practically on their deathbeds in season three. Hot granny action isn't what I'm looking for.
Gundams -- in skirts
Signum is the best.
The ending is awesome if you're a fan of the original Gunbuster and completely shitty otherwise. Personal opinions vary. I know it's a strange concept, anon.
So it's basically a gaogaigar/go nagai style monster a week show, minus the robots?
I like prequel on StrikerS on my S4 ;_; and Arisa and Suzuka are the main characters.
minds of typical Nanoha fans
It doesn't really fit well into any genre. That's part of why it appeals so much to people.
S4 should be what StrikerS was MEANT to be - moar of A's.
That just means more delicious Feito for me. Enjoy your ronery.
The voice acting is pretty good actually. Whats wrong with the animation?
Yep I agree totally
no monster of the week and no nagai style anything
just FUCKING GERMAN HAMMERS OKAY? LASERBEAMS AND SCYTHES! SWORDS AND FUCKING GERMAN HAMMERS. SPINNING GERMAN HAMMERS. GIANT GERMAN HAMMERS. NON CANON BUT YET BLATANT LESBIAN LOLI LOVE TURNED FLAT OUT LESBINA LOVE IN S3. GOT IT?
Wasn't a major problem with StrikerS is that they had 13 episodes of material planned and then they were told that they had to fill 26?
lol at invented troll bullshit
>BLATANT LESBIAN LOLI LOVE
is that actually true or just the usual /u/ faggotry and taking things out of context
Magical Lyrical nanoha
Anime for the simpleton
>A major problem with StrikerS is that they had 3 episodes of material planned despite knowing that they had to fill 26.
the prequel idea sounds nice, but will they be able to befriend like white devils?
There are some overtones, but mostly it's just /a/-style yuri-fanboys. /u/ has a totally different way of looking at yuri, because they're all fags there.
No it's not true but why go against it?
not enough Hetero in the anime
all the males end being up support characters which get scrapped in S3 anyway.
Well Arisa is a flame haze and Suzuka is a true ancestor, so sure thing. Also Nanoha was raised by ninjas.
Some of that is true. How much? Only most of /a/ could know.
>No it's not true but why go against it?
since it's stupid, nonsensical and makes you look like an underage b& "shipper" moron?
>not enough hetero in the anime
by the way this is a massive understatement. The Nanoha series is pretty much devoid of romance. yuri fags would say otherwise
you're redundant and what the fuck is a "shipper"
I shat bricks when Nanoha got some serious injuries ;_; Poor White Devil.
Where can I find high quality Nanoha StrikerS?
Wow some people really feel that strongly about it.
But too bad, still Fate is my favorite character.
Someone who loves fan-fiction character relationships.
Okay I'm bored now. Anyone else want to beat up Vita before I kill her?
(search for Taedium on Tokyotosho)
More like they're both normal and those other identities only exist in fan's hopes.
Personally I think they're both stupid. Sorry.
I guess that's a play on the word relationship? I've never heard that term before.
I thought she would sacrifice herself and be killed on that part. LOL GODMODE ON.
I honestly thought it was derived from Worship, since that's about the level the average shipper puts into.. shipping.
>I've never heard that term before.
Be proud of this fact.
nanoha was raised by ninjas/assassins
Over the A's
Lyrical on Fire
Nanoha StrikerS - GONG
Fate should take Nanoha's advice for S4 -- this was something seriously lacking in S3
I ignore the shippers. Nanoha is too dedicated to flying about blowing up shit for justice to even consider a relationship. Vivio may eventually change that, but whatever, it's 7arcs they won't do shit and will probably have Nanoha raise her the Takomachi way. When Vivio becomes 9yrs old in S4 and SHIT GOES DOWN you know she's going to get dragged in and show the results of her mother's firm love, hopefully animated better and no teen transformation crap, not that I didn't like teen Vivio, but her attacks looked shit.
Nothing like a relaxing dinner with family.
manly characters in nanoha?
And so say all of us!
Nanoha is like a religion in Japan.
Its very popular.
GONG is crap, but Over The A's is fuckwin and Lyrical on Fire is pretty good.
2nd Place of Saimoe 2007
what is this shitty rap music?
what are the songs from? I only recognize the JAM project one
2nd place only makes her the queen of losers.
She whispers some words mildly in your heart, and makes your gentle days.
blah blah etc
>GONG is crap
wuts going on in this thread?
So say we all.
Anyone remember this thread?
Suddenly Fate and MANoha works.
Fuck of Rikafag
Yeh.... once you get passed the first few episodes of pretty stock standard 'Lol transformation sequences'
you get into the awesome
"Befriending" (read: Shooting fuck win lazers at people untill they liston the fuck up)
If that's a loser then sign me up. I'll take her home and tenderly love her.
Shoot first, ask questions later
Lyrical on Fire > Over the A's
Original. Made back during the StrikerS UBERDISCUSSION.
Shoot first, befriend later.
I remember this thread and how it was used to justify a Nanoha, Noien and Lain crossover.
Does Nanoha actually reference GaoGaiGar at one point or was Wikipedia lying as always?
I probably saved that version too, but the shinier version is the first one I found while dredging my folders. Honihoni
wiki fails on that account. probably just some fan rambling
Subaru IS GaoGaiGar
Subaru in StrikerS, along with being one of the only decent characters in it, references GaoGaiGar in her transformation sequence. Alas, the promised Hell And Heaven never materialised though.
sage for feet
Just finished watching that GONG MAD/AMV/whatever. Holy shit, you're right; I was half expecting a HERR ANDO HEVENU at the end.
Nanoha threads are always so nice even with trolls
>one of the only decent characters
Sorry if it pisses you off, but I actually liked the third season. Almost as much as season 1.
A's, on the other hand, was a bit TOO much mindless fanservice.
oh you're one of those whackjobs
I'm not going to go into details here because the shitstorm would ruin a fairly decent thread, but my opinion on StrikerS summed up: average show when taken on its own merits, utter shite as a Nanoha show.
StrikerS has its moments. Cut it in half and you'd have a good show.
Fuckwin Signum Agito
Fucking awesome picture is fucking awesome.
is Signum Agito her super saiyan form? even her hair changes color
Oh wow there's one for A's too
10 images to go..
Once again, I express my disappointment with the UNISON mode thing. I was expecting some kind of expanded or parallel consciousness from the earlier descriptions, not some lame "I'SA CAST BUFFS".
Damn, she hides it well.
It's her with Agito, her unison device (well sort of hers).
Unison Vita would have looked better like this.
Whatever you prefer. I just don't like how they portrayed it working. Isn't it basically just like having a buff-casting fairy on your shoulder? She could just stuff Rein in her pocket.
Buch der Dunkelheit!
It's some sort of mind synchronization.
Which just begs for doujins, but I doubt Japan will ever catch on.
Well a unison device's primary job is to do all the base mana-control tasks for her knight, leaving said knight free to more effectively cast their spells.
were you expecting some FUSION-HA action? It was only really meant to be a buff in the same way cartridges were. Personally I just prefer Vita in her red dress, it fits better.
I should re watch the first season sometime
Which just begs the question of why they depict like one of those "inside the cockpit" things where the user and device actually converse. Makes no sense. If they're linked the way it suggests, they're basically thinking in synch.
Needs more tentacles and vagina tree.
Damn, Nanoha must be fucking tight if Vita needs to do that to get her fingers in.
Graf Eisen is somewhere in there
It's multiple personalities conversing. Both control the same body.
Something like that.
/r/ moar worksafe loli /u/ material
Vita Chan, the most awesome little girl ever.
She got a giant metal claw through her chest, beat the shit out of every robot there with a wound that would have been fatal to anyone else. Then she continued on to the reactor, went fucking berserk on the thing, and didn't stop until Graf Eisen was essentially destroyed and she just couldn't continue.
I just want to hold her and tell her how awesome she is.
Nanoha held off berserk Vivio while searching for that bitch Quattro, shot THROUGH THE WALL to finish her, and still had enough power to befriend the unbefriendable.
I just want Fate to cry over her corpse when she dies at age 30.
come on guys at least post the good one
fucking GaoGayGar shounen faggots ruining my seinen magical girl show with gaiafaggy robot bullshit
3:35 for Vita Chan
Goddamnit this part never fails to make me baaaaw.
Vita Chan ;_;
>seinen magical girl
delicious shounenfag tears
Nanoha, yet another show with timestop-drama in action situation.
NANOHA = BEST MAGICAL GIRL SHOW EVER
SHOOT FIRST BEFRIEND LATER
shonenfag in denial.
What the hell is that episode where they battle robots in space?
I can't seem to find it anywhere.
