Eleven Arts announced at its Crunchyroll Expo panel on Saturday that it will screen the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection anime film in the United States this winter. The company had announced at Anime Expo last month that it would screen the film in October.
In the story, a pair of researchers stay behind on their dying planet of Eltria with their two daughters, Amitie and Kirie, in hopes of finding a way to revive the planet. But when the husband Granz falls ill it seems their dream of reviving the planet will die. Against her older sister's wishes, Kirie sets off with her childhood friend Iris to seek help from a distant alternate world. They arrive in Japan on Earth to search for the key to their planet's regeneration. There, they meet Nanoha Takamachi, Fate T. Harlaown, and Hayate Yagami.
Masaki Tsuzuki is credited with the original work, and also penned the script. Takayuki Hamana (The Prince of Tennis, Library War, Appleseed XIII) directed the film at Seven Arcs Pictures. Kana Hashidate (Dog Days') drew the character designs, and Shochiku is distributing the film. Nana Mizuki perfromed the film's theme song "Destiny's Prelude."
