posted on by Karen Ressler
Aniplex began streaming the first promotional video and third commercial for the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid television anime this weekend. The promotional video features Nana Mizuki's opening theme song "Angel Blossom."
The series will premiere on April 3 at 10:30 p.m. on Tokyo MX, MBS, and BS11.
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. Yukari Tamura will perform the ending theme.
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. Yukari Tamura and Nana Mizuki will reprise their roles as Nanoha Takamachi and Fate, respectively. Eri Kitamura and Misato Fukuen are joining the cast as Rio and Corona, respectively.
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.
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.
