During a rash attempt to save her father and her dying home planet of Eltria, Kyrie Florian is betrayed by her childhood friend, Iris. Furthermore, the power Kyrie has gathered from Nanoha Takamachi and the other Earth protectors cannot be used to help her father.

Iris casts the despairing Kyrie aside, having acquired what she desired to exact revenge on Yuri Eberwein, a powerful being who lies dormant on Earth. Left to pick up the pieces, Nanoha and her allies must confront the troublesome Iris to uncover the truth and stop the conflict between her and Yuri.

However, amidst the raging battles, a much more dangerous threat lingers in the shadows. No matter the obstacle, Nanoha remains diligent and does not hesitate to help those in need with her magic.

One thing I've noticed about Nanoha is how much of the conflict is steeped in stupid communications breakdowns and misunderstandings. It's like one of those high school drama shows only instead of being made a social outcast you get blasted into infinity by huge magical cannons. Honestly I hate misunderstanding storytelling because it's lazy and it doesn't redeem your villain to just have them being manipulated the whole time. It tries to remove accountability from them and place it on an even bigger badder guy, so they can have a cheap redemption arc that doesn't require them to really undergo any introspection or development.

I've been a fan of MGLN for a very long time now. I've watched all three seasons maybe three times each and read a bit of ViVid (though the anime and manga were both very disappointing and obviously 100% fanservice). I'm glad that they went back to their roots to create Reflection and Detonation. However, though i did appreciate the first movie (Reflection) a lot, I have to say that Detonation was kind of unnecessary.

First, the positives. The art was amazing and so was the soundtrack. There is about as many explosions in this movie as you would expect in a Michael Bay movie, ...

Lyrical Nanoha: Detonation is the last entry in Lyrical Nanoha at the time of this review. This review will encompass both movies, and may contain spoilers for the first movie, Reflection, as well as Detonation itself.

As the part two of two full-length movies serving as the ultimate Lyrical Nanoha experience, Detonation had particularly big shoes to fill. Not only because of the setup the first movie gave it, so that it could stand on its own feet, although this was very much part of it. The other aspect is that the first movie, in my personal experience, did not smooth over so well, and we ...
