The movie will be a sequel to Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE 1st, which opened in 2010. That film was a retelling of the first series, and creator Masaki Tsuzuki emphasized that it was a "new parallel history." In the second film, the magical girl Nanoha (Yukari Tamura) has a long-awaited reunion, but soon after, she encounters a new peril.
The second film will open in Japan on July 14.
In the first round of advance sales, each ticket can be bought with one of three different A2-sized clear posters (Nanoha, Fate, or Hayate) drawn by character designer Yasuhiro Okuda at Animate stores, or with one of three other A2-clear posters (also of Nanoha, Fate, or Hayate) illustrated by Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid manga artist Takuya Fujima at Gamers stores.
