Nanoha Movie 3: Reflection Update

old-nanoha-3rd-movie-poster

Movies will take place 5 months after A’s so unless there’s a time skip in the 2nd movie there will sadly not be any adult NanoFate sexiness.

Long story short the 3rd entry in the Nanoha film series will be split into two movies. The first one is scheduled for a Spring 2017 premiere while the second one’s premiere date is unknown but the writers assure us that the wait after the first movie won’t be a long one.

From ANN:

In an interview in the same magazine, franchise creator Masaki Tsuzuki stated that the story will be completely new, and will take place three months after Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha the Movie 2nd A’s, when Nanoha and the other characters are in the summer of their fifth grade. The events of the story begin when certain incidents begin occurring in Uminari City, as well as in the area around Tokyo, and so Nanoha and the others investigate. The story will feature other new characters besides Amitie and Kirie. The characters’ Barrier Jacket costume will also have a completely new design.

    Oh, if only the movie took place after the TV series epilogue, and not the movie version epilogue (and thus 6 years after the events of A’s instead of 2 years) so we could see high school NanoFate and possibly something like a continuation of the Nanoha School Days fan project (and thus kisses and such). Oh well. It’s to be expected, since they said the movie would be related to the movie continuity/movie 2’s A’s.

    That said, split into two movies? Odd…does this mean a longer story than the previous movies as well then?

    And Kirie and Amitie from the PSP games! Does this mean certain Materials (and possibly U-D) could possibly appear along with the time-traveling cyborg sisters in the movie timeline then? After all, they’ve all appeared in the main timeline in Drama CD’s, despite being from an alternate timeline after a different ending to A’s took place (because time-travelers who can also hop into other dimensions (accidentally) are so much fun!) Other new characters besides Amitie and Kirie does make me wonder a bit…after all, revealing even the Material’s VA’s would instantly give hints as to who/what they are to people who haven’t played the PSP games/aren’t aware of what happens in them…

    Oh well. At the very least we shall have more NanoFate subtext (because you can’t have those two characters appearing together without at least some), or possibly subtle, subtle hints of a budding romance, if nothing more.

      Unsurprising considering StrikerS is currently the longest season so the 3rd movie’s story being longer was somewhat expected.

      I only saw the anime and movies so no speculations to make on my side of the monitor.

      NanoFate will no doubt have many yurirific moments as always.

        Hmm…that’s true, I suppose. Hadn’t thought of a comparison to StrikerS in terms of length. A pattern in the Nanohaverse, then, of sorts?

        Well, I won’t spoil anything about them, then…but I’ll just say that things are about to get interesting. Very interesting.

      Also, now that I think about it, it’s going to be interesting to see if the 3rd movie(s) fit in the main storyline/how they do, since with movies 1 and 2, they were actually sort of “meta” movies within the Nanohaverse, being made by people around the Vivid era in-universe as well, with Nanoha & Fate providing supervision and such (comfirmed by several movie Drama CD’s where they visit the set of the production and Nanoha & Vivio find a prop version of Raising Heart & promotional material that has Vivid era characters promoting the movies). Essentially re-collections of stuff that happened in NanoFate’s past made during their present. which also explains the edits, for example the cut side-plot in A’s in the movie version due to it being a confidential and embarrassing military secret (Gil Graham and his familiars and the role they played with the BoD).

      So since the first two movies were recollections of past events in-universe, will the third movie(s), despite being original material, be the same, like an event that happened in their past, but that we just haven’t heard about yet, and will promotional material/TV spots/Drama CD’s prove this as well?

        For the most part it’s been a retelling so it can go in a different direction from the main series if it wants to. For now speculation is all one can do until the premiere.

      Also, don’t know if you’ve seen this yet, but they apparently also showed some art for the main three recently: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2016-11-30/magical-girl-lyrical-nanoha-reflection-anime-character-designs-unveiled/.109330

        I only report what’s necessary. I don’t cover every single details. Thanks though. Should be cool seeing our adorable trio in their kinda new super armor.

    I just hope they does not merge to the storyline of Nanoha Force (and Nanoha Vivid). It’s suck!

    They did confirm the movies will have GoD elements and characters but wont be a retelling of the PSP game.
    I think it is a pretty good guess that the Materials are going to appear (they have the same VAs as the originals after all).
