Anthology 6 – Pranks and Blackmail for Fun and Profit

In this edition of the Nanoha Comic Anthology, we do the exact opposite of spreading warmth and kindness. Little Rein is pulling off some shenanigans and Vita is selected to be the butt of this joke. Knowing Vita, this can’t end well.

ViVid 62 – From Today Into Tomorrow

ViVid62previewAs one story ends another begins. Einhart may have finally confronted her past and made peace with the present thanks to the efforts (and fists) of Vivio but there are still others who need to do the same.

We return to the Saint Church to rest and recover from that crazy match. Friends old and new gather to share smiles and kind words. And Nove has a few choice words for our little rascal.

So today we turn another page in the story of these little remnants of the Belka in…

This marks the last chapter in volume 12. But fret not. We’re already at work on the upcoming volume and even have our source material set all the way into volume 15.
So as you can see, the story is far from over. And we’ve got even more than that in store.

The Making of Movie A La Carte…the comic!

malc13previewLook at these wonderful dorks

This isn’t your typical comic. Rather than be another story that delves into some of the events of Movie 2nd A’s, this final comic instead celebrates the artists who made the whole of Movie A La Carte book possible.

Each writer took their favorite character to represent them and here they give us a little peek into the fateful day when it was decided that Movie A La Carte should be created.
Honestly, I think it’s a refreshing change of pace. And with this final entry, we wrap up Movie A La Carte. It’s been a long project with just as many ups and downs as our main series. And it’s one that I hope brought as much joy to you all as it did us.

Special thanks to Tori who is practically an honorary member at this point. When you’re juggling this many side projects, and with the OG crew tied up with ViVid, having an extra hand is always welcome.

Speaking of extra hands, on the official records, Vivid Translations gets a new member. Everyone say hello to Luthien. Expect to see her name pop up in more credits in the future. We’re making sure the extra help isn’t wasted.

A Little Drop releases InnocentS 4 + A Little News

Just making sure you’re all aware that chapter 4 of Nanoha InnocentS is now out thanks to A Little Drop. Go pay a visit and check out what baby Subaru and Teana are up to.

As for Vivid Translations. We’re working on new releases.
I’ll take this time publicly confirm that we will be doing Volumes 13, 14, and 15 of Nanoha ViVid. So that’s still going and hopefully at the usual pace. Though time may hopefully tell something different down the line.

Movie A La Carte is almost done and we will be releasing more stories from the Anthology collection as well until we have those wrapped up too. There’s no cherry picking with us. When we start a collection like that, we finish the whole thing.

There’s also a secret project that’s just now in the initial planning phases. But we won’t be doing a formal announcement until we actually get that started. So consider this just a tease. Know that by the time we wrap up our previously mentioned side projects, there will be another one coming that should be a delight to all.

The Befriending of Einhart – 4 Chapter Nanoha ViVid Release!

Chapters 58 – 59 – 60 – 61!

vivid58previewViVid59preview ViVid60preview ViVid61preview

Starting off the new year with a bang. Today we’re releasing not one, not two, not even three, but four chapters simultaneously. Enjoy the finale of Einhart’s befriending arc in a single uninterrupted run. How is this possible? Well, somebody finally got off his butt and found extra free time after the holidays. But enough of that. It’s time to kick off the new year with an extra special helping of…

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha ViVid

58 – Fourth Match
59 – All or Nothing
60 – The Power to Break Through
61 – Color of the Sky and the World

Vivio finally gets the rematch she’s been waiting for and this time she’s not holding anything back. Things are serious and Vivio is going to get through to Einhart even if she has to beat the friendship into her thick skull by force. Fans of Nanoha old and new won’t want to pass this one up. This fight proves Vivio is definitely her mother’s daughter.

Now don’t go expecting another crazy release like this for a while. Still, 2016 is looking like it’s going to be a bright year for Vivid Translations. The series isn’t over yet, even though this volume does give quite a bit of closer. We are already planning the following volumes and you can expect to see them released here just like always.

One last December gift – A sleepy Hayate

Movie a la Carte 13

You have no idea what you’re in for.

Remember when Hayate was absorbed in the Book of Darkness and the yet unnamed Reinforce kept trying to get her to sleep? Well, things could have gone quite differently.

Enjoy the holidays. Indulge a little. Spend time with those you love. Maybe watch a Christmas movie. (The climax of Nanoha A’s takes place on Christmas Eve *wink wink*) Take every opportunity to celebrate and we will be seeing you all again in 2016. Cheers.

ViVid 57 – A Gift For Tomorrow

Nanoha ViVid Ch57


Yes yes. We know.

I promise that this chapter is worth the wait. Take it all in as we spend time with Vivio and Einhart each preparing for what is to come.


Vivio may be out of the tournament but her most important match is about to come and she’s called on none other than Nanoha-mama herself to help her train for it.

Einhart continues her regiment of training. She may still be tough but perhaps her heart may soon be ready to open up.

So once more we dive into the lives and dreams of of our little heroines in Nanoha : The Next Generation (aka Nanoha ViVid).
