Yuuki Itoh will direct series at A-1 Pictures

The November issue of Nyantype magazine is announcing the staff and cast of the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid anime series on Tuesday.

Yuuki Itoh (Vividred Operation assistant director) will direct the series at A-1 Pictures. Naruo Kobayashi (ToHeart2, Itazura na Kiss) will write the scripts, and Masaaki Yamano (Oreshura, Nanana's Buried Treasure animation director) will design the characters.

Kaori Mizuhashi (Madoka Magica's Mami, Hidamari Sketch's Miyako) will star as Vivio Takamachi and Mamiko Noto (Akame ga KILL!'s Shelle, Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne's Yōko) will star as Einhart Stratos. Yukari Tamura and Nana Mizuki will reprise their roles as Nanoha Takamachi and Fate, respectively.

Masaki Tsuzuki and Takuya Fujima launched the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid manga in Kadokawa's Comp Ace magazine in May 2009. Kadokawa released the 12th compiled volume in July.

The manga takes place four years after the JS incident in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, and stars Vivio Takamichi, a fourth-year elementary student at St. Hilde Academy of Magic. Vivio has learned to conjure her adult form and has received her own Device — named Sacred Heart — from Nanoha, and has promised Nanoha to never use either for mischief. Then a mysterious magical fighter appears and targets Vivio.

Tsuzuki's Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise includes three television anime series, two anime films, and numerous spinoff manga. A third film, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie 3rd: Reflection, was listed in January as being slated for this year.
