Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie Trailer Available, Ready to Make You Feel Vaguely Guilty

Posted on: December 10, 2009

She's 8. Who gives an 8-year-old a miniskirt?

I’ve always had a strange relationship with the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series. On the one hand, it’s a great fusion of the magical girl tradition with the kind of high-flying, high-tech action more suited to a mecha series. On the other hand, it stars a pair of third-graders wearing thigh-high leggings and really short skirts. Because of this, I’ve always been interested in it but unable to make it through a full episode without feeling like a criminal.

The new trailer for January’s Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie 1st (that’s a mouthful, isn’t it?), a complilation of the first Nanoha season, shows off everything that’s both good and bad about the series: amazing music, the kind of action that belongs in a Gundam series, and panty shots of 8-year-olds.

The movie is a retelling of the first Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series, where rival magical girls Takamachi Nanoha and Fate Testarossa compete for the mystical Jewel Seeds. The animation has been redone to movie quality and all-new music has been written for the movie, and I have to admit – it’s tempting. Very tempting.

I have to agree with most of the points about Nanoha pointed out here, but also add, from my point of view, that not only were panty shots of 8 year olds a little disturbing, but as a show, the story didn’t really stand out to me either. It just felt like a re-hash of Card Captor Sakura to me, but with more focus on showing off pre-teen camel toe (ew). So, boring/seen it before + disturbing amount of pedobear = dropped at episode 8.
