Canadian Theatrical News: Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: Reflection

Eleven Arts, King Records, and Cineplex are bringing the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: Reflection theatrical film to the Canadian big screen this month. The first of a two-part movie project based on the Nanoha franchise initially opened in Japan last July. A limited theatrical run in the United States began earlier this month.

Directed by franchise newcomer Takayuki Hamana from a script by Nanoha creator Masaki Tsuzuki, the third entry in the film series is the first to tell an all-new story. A sequel, titled Detonation, is set to be released in Japan sometime later this year. Both are produced by Seven Arcs, the studio behind the franchise. Initially originating as a spinoff to the visual novel series Triangle Heart, the first Nanoha TV anime debuted in 2004 and quickly inspired multiple followup seasons, compilation films, spinoffs and more merchandise than anyone can count. The new films take place 3 months after the events of the second movie.


The story opens on Eltria, 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 (Granz Florian) collapses from an illness, and the family’s dream crumbles. Distraught, Kyrie endeavours 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.” Kyrie 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.
