Well here I have arrived at the final season of Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. It’s been a nice ride. The final season brings back most of my beloved characters, provides a decent story and action and lets me enjoy grown up versions of Nanoha and Fate. While I did find myself glued to my television watching this there was quite a bit about this series I found extremely disappointing. I will get into that further later, but as a sequel to the Nanoha franchise IMO this series fails. It just doesn’t feel like the originals, it also has a very read more

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS indisputably falls under the mahou shoujo (i.e. "magical girl") genre-- heck, the words are even in the title. So it should come as no surprise when I say it's got transformation sequences, mascot animals, and a whole slue of magical girls (one of which is even a pink healing type).

But what should come as a surprise is when I tell you this is a series with awesome, mind-blowing action. The action sequences are great, and never choppy. StrikerS's got the type of action that rouses excitement and gets your adrenaline pumping, not what you'd expect to get read more

Nanoha StrikerS is set ten years after Nanoha A's. Nanoha, Fate and other characters they've met now work full time for the TSAB. We meet two new characters in the first episode: meet Subaru and Teana. They are mages who have Nanoha as trainer and they're trying to rank up as a mage. It doesn't take long and two new characters appear: Erio and Caro. Nanoha, Fate and Hayate must train these four mages to work together and to save the world from new enemies.

The story is not longer that original if you ask me, but still, Nanoha StrikerS has things that makes read more

Ah... the phrase "Magical Girl". It makes you think of a Shoujo anime, doesn't it? Soppy little transformation sequences, annoying mascot animals, ridiculously cute lolis...

But make no mistake. Maybe people have the wrong impression from the title (which may account for the surprisingly low ratings), but StrikerS is, in fact, squarely in the Shonen denomination, and is a rambunctiously good Shonen to boot.

Lets have a quick summary. StrikerS is set 10 years after the previous iteration of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, in which the titular character has outgrown her loliness and become a full time Instructor, training the new generation of horribly underaged TSAB read more

Both are sequel series that take place several years from their predecesor series. They both are great sci-fi with great stories if you have watched this series I would have to recomend you Gundam 00 Season 1 and 2
Nanoha StrikerS and Gundam 00 are both sci-fi series that combine political intrigue with epic battles.
Both involve futuristic combat within a specific organization as well as similar story progression. Both series also center around two female heroines with special abilities that get stronger as the story progresses.
Although Neon Genesis Evangelion is a mecha anime and Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS is a mahou shoujo, I actually found many similarities between the two shows. For starters, both anime take place in a futuristic city, and the main characters are involved with a Sci-Fi military base. Many scenes are dedicated to training/testing and life around the military base, but throughout each series there are times where the characters must use high-tech equipment to complete a mission. Also, both shows are very "talky": we can see characters in high positions discuss plans and relay information, but also all of the characters are seen chatting about everyday life. However, in the last 8ish episodes things become more serious and intense and you'll be sitting at the edge of your seat to see what happens next! In terms of differences, NGE focuses more on the psychological aspect of a mecha anime while MSLNS is more focused about stopping a single antagonist and his "minions" from committing crimes.
Girls with unique costumes and weapons. They fight to fulfill their own dreams.
Both deal with advanced Technology with advanced mech magic giving them both a much darker story which is a unique change of pace of the averge magical girl animes. Striker S is the 3rd season of the Nanoha Franchise which has a very similar darker military mech story much like My Hime,both use miliary advanced weapon summon skills,plasma lazers,ect.
