Hey guys, I'm new here (and already addicted to everything NanoFate LOL). I just finished watching the first 3 seasons up until Strikers. Are there any other seasons out yet or is it just in print? And does anyone have a link to where I can see the movies? I would buy them and/or anything in print if I had to, I just have no idea where to find them. Hope you guys can help!

Hi Skye, and welcome!

There are only 3 animated seasons, being StrikerS the last. The rest are mangas, and drama cds. There are also two movies, the first movie is a retelling of the first season, and it should be available to purchase or to download translated somewhere. The second movie is based on Nanoha A's but isn't out in DVD yet, so you can watch it yet unless you go to Japan.

To expand on A.'s answer, there are currently two 'sequel' mangas running, Vivid and Force. Vivid follows Vivio's development as she makes friends and gets her own dokidoki-raburabu partner, while Force is a darker and edgier take on Nanoha.

Don't forget the PSP games! They're an alternate universe, a what-if story based on what would happen if everyone decided not to sacrifice Reinforce to properly seal the darkness of the Book of Darkness.

It might as well be canon in my opinion, the story is great~ It's also given us the much loved Materials (as well as the sorely lacking in love Florians and System U-D)

...Wasn't there an anthology manga at some point? Was it a la carte? Does that count?

Yes, it's Nanoha a la Carte, but only some chapters were translated. I think there are 2 volumes out, are the third isn't published yet? I'm not sure.

Ooo I would love to read Vivid and Force! Any one know of online stores that sell them in English? I live in Canada, I know we have tons of shops that specialize in mangas and such but I have yet to find any that sell them : (

If I do find them, which one should I read first? And do either of them have NanoFate or do I just have to read the fanfics? ;)

Vivid and Force are not licensed outside of Japan, so you can't buy them in English. If you want to read them you will have to look for translations online, I think this site is updated with the most recent translations: http://mangafox.me/manga/mahou_shoujo_lyrical_nanoha_vivid/v01/c001/1.html
About NanoFate, both mangas seems to be trying to make the story go around new characters instead of the old cast, so there isn't much of Nanoha and Fate. In the first half of Vivid though there are some great NanoFate and family moments :)
The Force manga takes place after Vivid, so you probably should read it later. Most people don't like it by the way, this manga doesn't feel like Nanoha at all, and Nanoha and Fate almost don't show up in it..

I don't really mean to be a nag but that's a bit of a dangerous typo, isn't it? ^^;;

............

Unless you CAN buy the manga in English, in which case I will have to take my leave as I have a few stores I want to visit...
