Product Description

Complete First Season for one great price!

The Jewel Seeds, artifacts from an ancient magical civilization, have been spread across the galaxy. Nanoha Takamachi becomes Lyrical Girl Nanoha to seal the Jewel Seeds and protect the Earth, but another girl appears who desperately tries to collect the seeds for a far more dangerous purpose!

Amazon.com

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (2004) scored a big hit in Japan, generating two broadcast sequels, a feature-length "retelling," and an OAV. The series begins like a mixture of Cardcaptor Sakura and Inu-Yasha. After a strange dream, third grader Nanoha Takamachi discovers a ferret-like creature in a nearby park: Yuuno, a being from another planet, has disguised himself in this form while he's trying to find the powerful Jewel Seeds that have been scattered on Earth. Nanoha, who has little of Sakura's insecurity, curiosity, or charm, takes these revelations in stride. She quickly develops her magical powers, but she and Yuuno encounter a rival collector, a blonde girl named Fate who's accompanied by a canine familiar. At this point, the story veers in a completely new direction, jumping from a low-key shojo (girls') adventure to an overblown epic involving travel through space, time and alternate dimensions. The story-telling is erratic at best. Although Nanoha has two adoring parents, two doting siblings, and two best friends at school, she's sure that a friendship with Fate will cure her loneliness. During the climactic battle, she, Yuuno, and a new ally have to seal a reactor-- although it's never been mentioned until that point. But hard-core fans of magical girl adventures may not care about these gaps. (Rated 13 and older: brief nudity, mild violence and risqué humor) -- Charles Solomon

Lyrical Nanoha starts out looking like a typical Magical Girl show - the main character meets a talking animal that gives her a magic item, which she uses to fight off a monster attack, and she is given the task of collecting powerful artifacts (Jewel Seeds).

The first difference one notices is that, atypical for the apparent genre, Nanoha throws herself at the task with enthusiasm, hard work, and responsible decisions. After Fate shows up in episode 4, the monster-of-the-week takes a back seat to character development and the conflict between the two girls. When another group shows up at the end of episode 7... well, I won't spoil anything further.

Lyrical Nanoha, despite being a show where the main character is a third grade girl with magical powers, is more targeted to the seinen (young men) demographic than the shoujo (young girls) one. That's not because of fanservice (there's a typical transformation sequence, but that's really it), but because of the more complex plot, the attention to detail given to the battles and the character development.

The product description for this anime doesn't really do it justice. From the description, one might think this a typical "collect all of the artifacts" mission typical of its genre. But the Jewel Seeds are not really the point of the plot.

As the titular character, Nanoha Takamachi, puts it herself at the start of the first episode, "Sometimes, a person's emotions can touch and clash with someone else's. And there's people whose feelings can bond with another so perfectly, they can talk without saying a word. Well, this is a story about people like that and what happens when they eventually meet."

For Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, the battles and the Jewel Seeds take a back seat to the characters and how they are affected by the events that take place. In its 13-episode run, the series manages to do what many shows fail to accomplish with far more airtime: it tells a story of people, a story rich in character development, character interaction, and ultimately meaning. And amidst all of that, it still retains its place as a magical girl show, with flashy attack spells, a transformation sequence, and a third-grade girl with magical power.

Easily one of the most interesting and enjoyable anime series I've seen in a while, and if you like the magical girl style, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha shouldn't be missed.

I know it looks like the typical magical girl anime and it does start that way and then verges into character building and considering it's a 13 episode anime it closes rather well. I loved watching the subtitled version with japanese audio better than the english audio but that everyone own preference.

People should give this a chance you won't be disappointed and look out for Lyrical Nanoha A's the sequel which is even better than this one.
