These new scans are probably for the next Nanoha movie, the second part of Reflection.

I don't like the new look for Nanoha. Is too bulky and the black messes the nice blue and white pattern of her old Barrier Jacket.

Is not a deal breaker, but I must say it seems odd to me.

This is from /a/:

Quote:
New Nanoha movie is 90% fights. Has three giants robots and loads of smaller ones. Ends on cliffhanger just as they confront a new enemy.

Pre-show stage was nothing much. Tomatsu once showed up for recording with a torn blouse worn the wrong way on (she didn't notice until it was pointed out to her) and Mizuki Nana once showed up with a transparent skirt and flesh-coloured inner which "looked erotic". Hikasa mentioned how Nanoha has been going on since before she became a VA and how her first audition was for Strikers.

I don't remember the first PSP game's story and never cleared the second but the story seems mostly original and just using the characters. Takes place after A's and before Strikers so not parallel stuff like the games (Reinforce 1 is still dead)

Nanoha, Hayate and Vita now have beam cannons. Not their usual stuff transforming but straight up beam cannons. Nanoha also has two shield funnels though they're kind of just there and don't do anything cool.

Decent action throughout but the film unfortunately never comes ANYWHERE close to the best parts of the previous movies. Especially noticeable given how the first Nanoha VS Fate (training) fight is in the same sunken city as in their showdown in the first movie. Of course this is only the first half of one story so they're probably saving good stuff for later. Unimpressive SLB though.

There is some actual bloodshed this time, albeit of to no consequence.

Fights are:
Nanoha VS Fate (training)
Iris (controlling robots) VS Hayate with Amitie joining later
Kirie VS Fate and Nanoha with Amitie late
Nanoha VS Stern
Fate VS Levi
Hayate VS Dearche (cut short, draw)
Chrono and mooks jobbing
Amitie, Kirie, Fate, Hayate and mooks jobbing to Yuri and Iris; Movie ends when Nanoha shows up

From the comments it seems it's almost all action and there is more focus in the new characters, but the Materials are not so prevalent at least in this first movie, and only show towards the end.

I see... it doesn't sound that good, but neither too bad. It just seems, as I fear, crowded with excess action because of the large cast... Oh well, not judging fully until movie is out

You know, I often make that joke about wanting Nanoha as a hidden playable unit in SRW or Gundam Vs. but at this rate...I might start taking said joke semi-seriously...(almost expecting a tiny Nanoha pilot to climb out of the new jacket's torso armor)

I actually kind of enjoy the new design, the black portions of the jacket give the illusion of looking kind of like a Super Robot who purged multiple layers of armor to vent the exhaust of something reminiscent of the V2's Wings of Light, and seeing as how Nanoha's using actual beam cannons...this can only end oh so well...

But admittedly the juxtaposition between everyone's design evolution just seems so strange, here we have a slightly more powerful looking Fate, a Hayate and Vita who apparently took a minor lesson from the Takamachi-upgrade catalogue of Gundam weapons, and Nanoha herself boasting Full Armor and HWS upgrades all over the place. Did the in-story TSAB engineers just somewhat logically assume that Nanoha would get into the most trouble when left unattended and shove all their budget into keeping her alive?

And finally, as a player of the games, I can firmly say that Yuri jobbs everyone regardless of circumstance...although if Iris is working with her I guess that Iris was stringing Kyrie along the entire time? Since the game version of Yuri was notorious for never listening to what anyone had to say. And seeing as how Nanoha shows up at the end despite a confrontation with Stern, I can only hope that Stern made a quick get away, instead of continuing her tradition of never really managing to one up Nanoha...seriously she has higher specs in almost everything...she deserves to win every now and again...

I'm gonna be honest, if there isn't a NanoFate moment I'm not interested. I don't need anything big, just having them support eachother would do.

They are the heart of the franchise to me, you lose the heart you lose everything.

Hayate and the Knights are part of the heart as well.

I think they held hands? I'm not sure, it seems there isn't much focus on the old characters or on anything other than action this time, so I wouldn't be surprised if the obligatory NanoFate moments were kept to a minimum this time.

I can't be sure but based on some things I read...There is one scene where Fate's in trouble or some reason that sparks Nanohas concern -- and Nanoha responds with "Leave MY Fate alone" or something similar to that.

And I believe there is another scene where Fate intervenes to help Nanoha because she's concerned for her safety. It seems like the NanoFate scenes dropped from the previous movies, but the NanoFate scenes from the Reflection have more consistent impact.

Some reviews state that Fate feels like the wife of Nanoha in the movie.

OT: Fate's also got a nice touching scene with Lindy, so that ought to be nice.

#Nanoha and #NanohaReflection twitter feed. It's all in Japanese but there are enough people posting specific things about the movie to get a good idea of what it has.

If that's true then this movie is going to make my kokoro go doki doki x3

That sounds pretty good for what the movie is. I hope it comes out soon on BD.

You guys better not go to myanimelist if you have questions regarding NanoFate moments in the movie. The hate and passive-aggressiveness from Yuunoha shippers on that site is real.

Just show them that interview with Tsuzuki, Nana, and Yukarin from several years ago where they confirmed that the two are a couple. That should shut them up. Hopefully.

Just watch that shitshow.

OP makes an AMA, I ask him a NanoFate related question, he writes "You actually disgust me" and then proceeds to treat it like a joke and "apologizes", then changes his Avatar to a character saying "disgusting".

And here they say NanoFate fans are being aggressive.

To be fair, that OP appears to be making a joke. Rather then seriously trying to attack you.

That would be believable if he wouldn't have changed his avatar to further provoke. I've dealt with enough homophobes to know when someone is being passive-aggressive. You're giving him a little too much credit.

It's surprising that there is still a guy like that on the Internet, watching Nanoha an openly stating that he wants to see lesbian characters getting in romantic relationships with guys could offend a lot of people, he would probably get lynched in most communities for that. Even if he's talking only about the movies where Nanoha and Fate are not a couple yet, they're still the same characters. I guess some people are just mean, delusional, or just want to self insert as the only male character they see and imagine themselves getting their favorite girl. He actually disgusts me.

This is something I brought back from Japan yesterday. I went to Japan to watch movies "Nanoha Reflection" and "心が叫びたがってるんだ(Live Action, Chinese:心灵想要大声呼喊)" in July the 15th with the mainland Chinese. I bought these goods at the local theatre. These don't include CD "Summer Time Vacance Songs" bought in Akihabara. There are people in the theater gave me special gifts, Mainland Chinese and Japanese won't keep it for me. So I bought only the following CDs, Clean filters and Official Guidebook.
Because I and Mainland Chinese business trips were arranged during the stay in Japan. So the pictures of the things bought haven't been sent to the Internet in time. So I'd like to take these things home with me and take some pictures and show them to you.

Yes, But I have returned to China from Japan now. The situation outside the cinema except that the film is still circulating, I was from the local news that the movie premiere in two days more than 56900 people watched. And box office receipts of 98053000 yen. It's not clear whether the number of viewers will decrease.

A new RefelctioN manga starts this December, made by Fujima, the artist of Vivid:

The Vivid manga seems to be ending in November then, so if I'm counting right it probably has 3 chapters left for the people following the raws.
