Great news, but how long before we get to see it, another 2 yrs?, as much as i love this show, the wait between movies-seasons is way too long

I wonder if this will be based on StrikerS or if it will be something new that covers the gap between the second and third series.

It will probably be based off of StrikerS most likely, I haven't seen it yet but if the second movie ended the same way with Reinforce sacrificing herself then it won't be based off of the games.

According to Lyrical Party V Event held today, it will be a "Whole New Story" that is not related to the previous two movies.

I wonder how it is going to be. Since 'Nanoha' is still there, I suppose Nanoha should still be there. LOL

Where does it say it wont be related to the previous two movies? As long as it takes place between A's and StrikerS, that would be completely original. And could still be linked to the movies.

Yes, I don't think anything is said about it being unrelated to the first 2 movies, but it seems like we should expect an original story, and not an adaptation of Strikers/Sound Stage/game.
This sounds very promising.

It only said that "a new original story" for the words that came out for the promotion. True enough it didn't say that it won't be related. I apologize for the confusion in translation.

The news only said "a new original story"

This is the most reliable place I know where the translation would be accurate.

I suppose it could be the missing timeline between A's and StrikerS or a 'whole new story'. I'm sure they will release new info soon.

I wonder what the 3rd movie will be about. Hopefully the teenage years. Dunno if it's true but it's called Magical girl lyrical Nanoha the movie 3rd reflection.

Here's a tweet from a reliable source:
"Just now "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha the MOVIE 3rd: Reflection" was just announced! It's a completely new story, something that has never been drawn before."

Is what it said. Looks like we're finally getting answer for what happened to Nanoha. ^^

Here's an English source:
http://www.capsulecomputers.com.au/2013/03/3rd-nanoha-film-announced-all-new-plot-hinted/

Again, I apologize for the mistranslation in my previous post about it not being related. It was a complete miss from me for reading a tweet wrongly.

Isn't that another assumption? :3

Wouldn't "completely original" mean it's not based on any manga as well? They said it has never been "drawn before" What happened to Nanoha has been drawn. Albeit, not in vivid detail, but we know about it from the manga and StrikerS.

This is a personal assumption. Believing it is your choice. As a translator and a fan myself, are you suggesting I am not allowed to assume stuff for myself? also, that's an assumption the one before that is a mistranslation in my part. Can you please not assume stuff?

If you can understand information and translate and do not like assumptions, why don't you do it and inform people of a 'more precise, without assumption' translated then?

Also, these are 'not my words' these are 'reports from people who attended the Lyrical party V' event.

They said it's a "Completely Original; have not been drawn" story. It's a "have not been drawn" to the extent of "It has never been animated." It was only a simplified version.

Also, the English link I have posted completely implies that it might be what was between Nanoha A's and StrikerS. That's also completely an assumption, what do you think?

P.S. if you think I'm not reliable enough, just a friendly suggestion, why don't you do your own research? At least that's a news without assumptions and compleeeteely original.

I did do my own research, that's why I commented.

Sorry, your comment just sounded factual.

Even so, I'm pretty sure something can't be called "completely original" and then be based off of pre-existing material. Whether it be based off of manga or sound stages, that would still make it an adaptation. It could have been called anime and game original, if it were only referring to them.

There is no doubt there is a high chance of it being between A's and StrikerS, but there is any number of things they could do with the movie between that period.

Sounding factual is in fact not my words, so I don't get why you're redirecting perplexity towards me. These sources are the ones that said these information, and I'm only an informant. if it's "Completely original" as most of the sources say, then we should wait fot T. Masaki to explain himself instead of trying to be unreliable with assumptions such as yours and mine.

Also, we did not attend the event, and everyone says "Completely Original" some EN sources say, "All-new Story".
You can't do anything about that. :3

I hope it's about the mistake of Nanoha? Remember that episode in Strikers? I'm waiting for it :3
May be after 2 year we will know what will be...

Well maybe this movie will be better. Something that hold the previous two movies is the fact that they were force to reduce the time from the tv series in to a movie, so that is really a problem at times. A whole new story will give them better room to tell the story, but with so many characters will be hard to do so.

It would probably nice to know Fate and Nanoha in their teenage years. As long as the fanservice continues then it's fine. =w=

Oh, I just got myself excited over the idea of the movie being something Lyrical Toybox related but that wouldn't be 'original', huh? (But tiny fairy Lindy for the win!)

...Oh, I just remembered. I recall that in one of the GoD sound stages, Dearche states that even if in some completely hypothetical situation where they sacrifice Reinforce from the get go, there's still a good chance that the Materials would respawn 10-20 years later anyway. It's been past 10 years so what I want to see is adult Nanoha and co face off against the Materials anew! If you somehow work it so that the Materials are adults as well I am sure lots of people will be happy~ (Then again, loli Materials are great too~)

Personally, I would love to see something based about Fate growing up. And by that I mean "I want to see more Precia".

Seriously, more Precia. Tell us what her happy life with Alicia was like so I can eat more suffering when it inevitably goes to s##t. Her time working with Jail developing Project Fate. Something, anything.

Yay Precia. All hail Precia. Precia eight-ever.

In any case, looking forward to this~

I am really excited about the MOVIE 3rd :) Nyahaha, I want to see Nanoha and Fate in their teenage years (Common knowledge: In teenage years people usually tend to 'reflect' on a lot of things like career [Nanoha: Arial Combat Instructor, Fate: Enforcer] or Love [NanoFate<3]).
I would really like it if the story would cover the accident that Nanoha had with one of "Jail's (?) Machines" and her and Fate struggling with Nanoha's disease. It is so painful a struggle that (as we know) Fate had to pass the Enforcer exam several times because she was so concerned about Nanoha. That would be perfect for showing their 'love' bond. What I could also imagine is NanoFate planning their future life together in one mansion(So again that would make a lo~t of space for NanoFate :3)

tonikaku, I hope we won't have to wait 2 years :D and I will be waiting for the movie, excited about the story !! (Nyahaha, I think I am too excited right now)

I had a feeling they were going to do this.... This is what they're doing for The Puella Magi Madoka Magica movies. First they made two movies that were retellings of the Anime. And The third one is suppose to be an original story coming out this year.... I think.

If it's based on a nanoha story out now, I wanna see Nanoha Vivid. But my guess is between the christmas party and 6 years later parts in A's episode 13 is when this will take place.

I don't think they will use the Materials for the movie. While the idea sounds nice it will be hard to pull out consider how much the series tends to lost itself in the characters. I will have to be character focus on the three Aces and the Materials.

News about the movie:

http://leoheart.blog43.fc2.com/blog-entry-909.html
"3rd will not be strikers, not nanoha's middle school period, probably nothing that was mentioned in the main story before. it also won't be the incident from strikers where nanoha got shot down"

I got Kannarei to translate it for me.

A double-edged sword. It now can be either the greatest piece of Nanoha media or a steaming pile of shit with frosty and sprinkles on top.

So far the movies have been good. In some aspects even better than the original shows: faster pacing, better animation and desings... I say an original story might help this to keep together. But why not go with elements the franchise already offers? I mean I know is now policy to toss out the window all the good stuff from previous seasons but I have hopes for the movie 3rd

Nooo! I was really looking forward to the middle school plot or Nanoha being shot down. My last hope is Woken or alternate universe. I just hope it's really good. I want at least more Hayate.

I want a movie where the Wolkenritter finally gets to shine properly (something the MOVIE 2nd failed rather misserably at). But seeing how they has become buttmonkeys even in Innocent i guess it will be wiser to simply abandon hope and surrender to the idea the Wolks will never shine like they did in A's TV again.
