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

Recommendations

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.
Both have an almost female-only cast and main characters.

Opening Theme

"ETERNAL BLAZE" by Nana Mizuki

Ending Theme

"Spiritual Garden" by Tamura, Yukari
