After how much I enjoyed the first season of Nanoha, I immediately set to watching this sequel. And I will tell you something that rarely happens for me, I don’t think I got up from my sofa from episode 1 until the end. In many ways, A's outshines the original as a lot of the peeves I had from that show are non-existent now. I really loved this series a lot, it just had a few warts that prevent me from giving it a perfect grade.

The story in the original was really good, A's takes it all to a different level and read more

Every once in a while or so, appears an anime that is literally compelling, rich, and truly irresistible. This is one of those- the franchise flourishes with support from the first season and absolutely comes back even more powerful to capture and entice the watcher in loving this well-constructed presentation. Seven Arcs has accomplished many great deeds with this release: executing a fantastic sequel to attract more awareness out of a type of "Dark Horse" anime. The Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha series (will use MSLN for short in later instances) isn't really "well-known" or "popularly watched" by the general audience, at least imo); Seven Arcs read more

5 WORDS OR LESS REVIEW: Better than the first season

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A’s certainly strayed away from the usual, formulaic mahou shoujo stereotype. No more collecting Jewel Seeds for Nanoha and Fate. This time they face bigger, more powerful enemies that get in their way.

The new plot really made me excited, mostly because I’ve been waiting for Fate and Nanoha to become closer friends as well as become team mates. The new characters were also very intriguing and interesting, especially the Velka-type Knights. I like how Nanoha and Fate have to go against them, because they’re not as evil or twisted as Precia Testarossa read more

I'll admit it. I haven't watch much "real" mahou shojo. I haven't watched Pretty Cure or Princess Tuturu or even Sailor Moon. I'm a "Madoka-era" mahou shojo fan, someone who prefers the Symphogears and Yuuki Yuuna's over the Sailor Moons and Pretty Cures. That being said, I loved Nanoha. I'm a big fan of the series. And A's especially. A's showcases to me all what I want in a mahou shojo show: breakneck action, "friendship" and magical gunfights.

Story: The story of A's is ultimately one of friendship and understanding, something that Nanoha conveys very well. The world and its magic system is typical magical read more

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
The shows are both content and market-wise similar. Dramatic story, lesbian attitude, darker atmosphere than your average CCS, target older rather than younger demographics, oh yes and magical girls too.

I put my rec on A's because I seriously never watched the first Nanoha. My knowledge of magical girls genre is limited but these similarities are true and clear, see for Yourself.

The Nanoha series is basically gundam in loli form with the awesome battle effect. Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A's is the second season in the Nanoha series. The first season- Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha is describing how Takamachi Nanoha and Fate Testalosa met and the development of their friendship, but of course with awesome battles. Nanoha series is just really awesome about its plot and fighting.

Anime: Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya
The concept of magical girls are present in both Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A's and Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya. In both series, the main character's life are suddenly changed after one faithful day and they in turn become a magical girl with gifted powers. With that gift, they must fight to collect certain magical objects with the help of a mentor.

The main female character from both series are also somewhat naive but are caring, helpful, and cheerful. They also hope to make friends even with rivals throughout the series.

Both series has plenty of humor and drama. However, Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A's  read more

In both shows, magical girls from rival groups battle each other. Both anime also contain sci-fi elements. (Keep in mind they're both second seasons to their respective series)

Anime: Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!!
Both Series is in the Theme of Mahou shoujo. They both were light hearted in the start of the first series. In this arc of the story both of the heroines face against new opponents that uses a new power. which later the heroine learns how to use them. In this arc and Nanoha A's everything get serious and dark themed

The Fight Scene is amazing in both series that this arc maybe they make a movie for it also like nanoha

For Example
Wolkenritter=Ainsworth
Masked man-Lotte Liese=Julian



Like for example in Nanoha A's they introduce to the Cartridge  read more
