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.

Teenagers battling using magical weapons, with some overpowered techniques. Also, similar endings. Nanoha A's have much better story and characters, though.

The magical fighting girl and the character development is very similar. Both shows make it very easy to fall in love with the characters and both have very interesting plots.
