NewType next release announce a new and original anime project named Dog Days.
I haven't picked the magazine myself so I can't provide better pictures but the rumor about this new Magical Girl seems to be true.

So why speaking of it here? Because of this article : it explains that Masaki Tsuzuki (author and screenplay writer of the whole MSLN franchise) is the one who came out with the project and he will be writting the sceenplay. Also, Seven Arcs, the same team that works on the Nanoha series, will realize the animation.
Edit : Director will apparently be the same as A's, StS and Movie 1st : Keizou Kusakawa.

Seems like the cast will be highly interesting : リコッタ・エルマール:水樹奈々 ~('¬'*)

Anime will start this April. I'm highly looking forward to it.

Edit : Dog Days is now listed by ANN with the casting and synopsis : "In the story, Princess Millhiore (Yui Horie) of the Biscotti Republic decides to summon a brave warrior from an alternate world to defend her country from the neighboring fiefdom of Garrett. The "brave warrior" turns out to be a boy named Sink (Mamoru Miyano)."

Thanks for the info Nina~ The images look very similar to what we find in Nanoha, and the premise of the show doesn't seem very original, but I think it's good that they're trying to do something new.

The guy looks a lot like how a son of Nanoha and Fate would look like, and it seems like he comes from another dimension too... maybe he has 2 mamas there? :D

Thanks for info Nina, but after checking description, then seeing that webpage, and knowing this will be pure girl x boy possible romance setup from start(like Force manga) I'm not too hyped and interested for this cause I won't see Nanoha, Fate or Hayate coming to save the plot later like in Force in this.

And another anime/manga about a boy summoned from alternate world(we can guess modern Japan?), into a magical world cliche is beyond my nerves...

I'm not a Tsuzuki fan, but Nanoha serie one for mostly yuri related reasons beside beams.

This DD seems to be just a total rip off from Nanoha serie so much, these character designs, all people behind it, even that boy is holding a staff with RH look-alike jewel on it, plus whole kingdom of dog-ear people(I suppose Arf and Zafira would be in heaven), they really want to catch some Nanoha fans on this, but maybe it's better that Tsuzuki will vent of his new magical boy addiction in brand new show then try to force them into Nanoha universe anymore...

Not my kind of thing to follow but I'll give it a try, I'll watch few first episodes to see if it will be a standard harem formula where all girls will be showing that they are interested in that blonde boy, or I'll be pleasently surprised and I'll get some side yuri pair going beside obvious pink girl and blond boy route.

And of course this is just my biased subjective view of a yuri fan at heart :P

Also if we're talking about new magical shows related somehow to Nanoha serie, there's one currently airing called Puella Magi Madoka Magica which is directed by guy behind Nanoha first season and I must say that first episode had blown my mind, and since it has a possibility for some yuri subtext romance between Homura and Madoka, I'll be following it this season.

New Nanoha and Fate?
But this show gives such grimdark feeling I doubt there will be a happy ending.
If you don't like Ume-sensei art style(Hidamari Sketch anime) don't watch this!
