Thanks to all the awesome people posting comments and bringing info on the latest news surrounding the anime we’ve all dreamed of seeing.
While there’s currently no news of official simulcasts or streams to the western world, there are wonderful people who have taken the effort to make it possible for those of us with limited Japanese to enjoy the series. (Much like we do here already. ^_~)
The first word we got of subs was one released anonymously on Nyaa.
[anon] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 01 [9543C486].mkv
Subs are pretty good though it’s not certain if they will continue after this first episode.
EDIT: They did continue! [anon] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 02 [D7AF278A]. mkv
Some time after that, a pleasant surprise came about when FFFansubs officially released their subs for the first episode.
[FFF] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha ViVid – 01 [12F992E2]
This is the one I would bet on in the long run to complete the series.
EDIT: FFFansubs had their ep 2 up first. Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha ViVid – 02
There’s a few other possibilities out there but these are just the ones I’m going to take a moment to mention. Feel free to share even more links and news in the comments.
A few (LQ) clips from the new Nanoha ViVid anime have surfaced now that the show is officially airing. Have a first look at what’s in store.
Let’s keep the ViVid hype train going! In today’s chapter we get to know more of the good times and the bad times had by the ancestors of our cast. Time to see where it all started in
Translator : Kinsei
Raw Scanning : Satsuki
Raw Cleaning : Crazy Hat
Proofreading : Kira Wing, Cthulhudpc
Typesetting : Setsuna F. Seiei
Project Lead : PrimeSonic
This also marks the first chapter we’re releasing of our own scans in a while, so image quality should be noticeably improved from out last couple releases.
Slowly we’ll see to re-releasing the chapters we did as LQ versions, but if you’d like to help speed up not only that but the future releases coming up, drop us a line and let us know if you’re interested in doing raw cleaning and redrawing.
Nanoha ViVid will be airing in Japan on April 3rd across several broadcasters.
This one goes out to anyone who has yet to see this trailer. ViVid is looking beautiful.
EDIT: A new preview finally happened! The official website also got a makeover if you haven’t checked in a while.
Sorry for the long silence everyone. Truth be told we have all just been overwhelmed with life, work, and snow.
We’re planning on releasing chapter 53 soon. Hopefully in early March.
We haven’t dropped anything but we could certainly use all the help we can get. We really need another artist grade raw cleaner and re-drawer. If you’ve got the skill set needed to bring quality raws to this series and want to see the ViVid manga pushed forward, please drop us a line. Not sure what the job entails? Check out our call to action for details.

As if this series wasn’t already light and fluffy, now we add fuzzy bunnies to the mix.
This chapter was collaboratively brought to you by your faithful ViVid Translation team and our comrades over at Payapaya Scans. Make sure you send them some love.
Will there be more to come out of this partnership? Only time will tell. But for now, let us rejoice together in that there is a little more Nanoha out there for us all.
Cleaning, Typesetting: Audio Erotica
So after that little incident, it’s time to get dressed and get back to researching.
More will be revealed as we open up
Proof-readers: Kira Wing, Cthulhudpc

Have you heard? Payapaya Scans went on a Nanoha scanlation spree.
There’s a couple of Vivio centered stories coming from the Comic A la Carte series and the fluffy slice of life comedy, Nanoha VIVID LIFE. [x] [x] [x] [x]
But what you might be more interested in checking out is Duel 07 and Duel 08 of Nanoha Innocent. If you’ve been wanting more of the AU, get on it.
Now, word from the heads of Payapaya confirm that this string of releases does not mean there is a long term plan for these series. So we might not see another Nanoha release from them in a while. But if the proper scans can be acquired, then who knows what the future might bring.
Best wishes to the team at Payapaya for bringing that little bit more of the franchise that Divine Bustered straight into our hearts.
