ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio has big plans for the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise, including U.S. theatrical screenings for the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection anime film. The feature—which will screen in Japanese with English subs—is officially coming to select theaters on February 9, 2018, with more information available on the official site.
The Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha TV anime has also been licensed, so look for further details on that soon. In the meantime, here’s an English-subtitled preview for the movie:
The story opens on Eltoria, a planet quietly dying from ecological devastation. The Florian family, consisting of a researcher couple and their two daughters, Amitie and Kyrie, stays on the planet in the hopes of restoring it. However, the father (Grants Florian) collapses from an illness, and the family’s dream crumbles. Meanwhile, Kyrie endeavors to save her father and revive the planet, which means she must travel to a “different world, far away.” Amitie tries to stop her, but Kyrie ignores her sister’s warning and embarks on the journey with her best friend Iris.
Their destination is Japan, a small island country on the planet known as “Earth.” Kirie and Iris, looking for the key to revive their planet, visit three girls from Japan. They are: Nanoha Takamachi, Fate Testarossa, and Hayate Yagami. Their encounter will be linked to the battle, which will decide the fate of the two worlds and all who inhabit them.
