Yukari Tamura, Nana Mizuki to Perform Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid Theme Songs
posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid television anime announced on Sunday that Nana Mizuki will perform the opening theme and Yukari Tamura will perform the ending theme. The singles do not yet have titles.
The opening will be Mizuki's 32nd single and will ship on April 22. The ending will be Tamura's 26th single and will ship on April 1.
Tamura and Mizuki will reprise their roles as Nanoha Takamachi and Fate, respectively, for the new anime.
The manga takes place four years after the JS incident in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, and stars Vivio Takamachi, 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.
Yuuki Itoh (Vividred Operation assistant director) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Naruo Kobayashi (ToHeart2, Itazura na Kiss) is the main writer, and Masaaki Yamano (Oreshura, Nanana's Buried Treasure animation director) is designing 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 play Einhart Stratos. Eri Kitamura and Misato Fukuen are joining the cast as Rio and Corona, respectively.
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 last January as being slated for 2014, but has yet to debut.
