After a long time the last two episodes just came out in English today, in a batch with a second version of all the previous episodes (by Ron/aRon, the person that also recently translated this doujin)
I think this wasn't the best Nanoha series, but I had a lot of fun with some of the episodes, I hope they make another season, because I liked watching this series more than reading the manga.
As a footnote, Teo is too cute!

Yep, definitely better than the manga, considering how I stopped reading it shortly after the tournament arc had started. I can't say I got disappointed, too, but maybe 'cause my hopes weren't too high to begin with (except for that stripmock battle I have little to complain about), and I even enjoyed quite a couple of moments. I'd also like to see the continuation 'cause right now it feels like the anime was dropped half-season.

Oh, and the duo Einhart & Teo. Animated and with voice they're even more lovely X3

Is moments like this where the only thing that lights my hearth is the knowledge that this can’t get any worse. Then I read ViVid and was surprise to see how each time it seem the series finally reach the bottom, somehow manage to dig itself even deeper and deeper in… well, let’s just say less than great stuff.

But that being said I am sure there is going to be more of this anime. Because the franchise seems to hates me like that. So those who did enjoy it rest easy, the rest will soon follow. And I hope you are proud of yourselves.

I will just go and inform others of why Unlimited Blade Works still doesn’t fix all the problems Fate/Stay Night has.

I think it goes without saying that I, too, would rather see another Nanoha season that actually is about Nanoha but I guess I've lost my hope that it's going to happen (like the 3rd movie Reflection) so I might as well enjoy what's on the table. Except for Force. I did not enjoy Force.

The thing is, we, as in fans from the West, probably have very little to say in the matter of what the next installment of the series will be. As far as I know, it's dictated by the sales in Japan and it seems that they are doing pretty good so far. Or at least good enough to ensure the creators that the direction in which they're going doesn't require any drastic changes.

With that said, I don't think Vivid is bad if one knows what to expect from it. They could have explained the rules of the whole tournament better or come up with some new spells instead of having everyone use Starlight Breaker. I won't talk much about the plot, I did not expect any particular kind of action or an evil scheme going on so I'm fine with what I got.

However, I think it was nice to finally see the characters animated on screen again. It may not be the best setting they came up with but, nevertheless, it was enjoyable enough to keep me watching.
