Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Original Chronicle The 1st
So after the delays from having my original order get lost by the postal service, the first 5 volumes finally came in. I have volume 6 on pre-order already and, from the looks of things, there’s still more to come even after that.
For those not in the know, Nanoha Original Chronicle The 1st (which I am probably going to call Nanoha OC1 for short) is yet another retelling of the story that started it all, this time in manga form covering the whole story in detail and following the movie’s art direction. Is this to be the definitive version of the story after an anime, a couple drama CDs, a movie, and an AU manga adaptation? Well, that will be for you to decide.
So we now have this project formally announced. It’ll be a little while before releases start happening since we’ve got quite a bit on our plates right now. But at least now you all know where our side project efforts will soon be going.
For this project, on behalf of the team, I’d like to extend an open invitation to any and all scanlation groups that were interested in the Nanoha OC1 manga but never really got to it. We’re very much open to collaboration on all our side projects and this one is no different. So if you want to work together on it, reach out to us and we’ll get in touch.
