Nanoha ViVid Season 1 Recap Episode

ViVid_post12[ron] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 12.5 (recap) [30931C42].mkv

Quoting TheRon directly for this one:

This episode refers to itself as “post-12” which is why I listed it as 12.5 instead of 13. It contains absolutely no new animation. The only thing new about it is a few lines of narration read by Corona’s seiyuu.

While there really isn’t an immediate need to dive into this recap episode right away, it could serve as a great little refresher to watch right before the next season starts. So I say, grab it now and save it for later. You’ll be glad you did.

Recategorization for Nanoha ViVid Anime Posts

While this is not exactly a big deal, the Nanoha ViVid category was starting to get a little cluttered with posts about the anime. So they’re now split.

Nanoha ViVid fansubs by TheRon – A Followup (Edit for ep10)

Much to the delight of Nanoha fans everywhere, the /a/nonymous contributions to the ViVid anime from the fansubber known as TheRon continue to come at a steady pace.
The subs are ready to go usually less than 24 hours from when the raws surface and this has remained generally consistent since the series began to air.

Another great detail is that it’s not all about speed. For those looking for the best quality in their subs, TheRon has also been providing a version 2 of most of the subfiles, available as an individual download, released afterwards.

It must be pointed out that the language used in the subs by TheRon closely mirrors what you’ve already been reading in the ViVid manga scanlation. This becomes particularly helpful when there is talk about ancient Belka and Einhart’s ‘past life’. All my thanks go to TheRon for that attention to detail. Clearly, we are seeing a passionate fan in action, making the anime adaptation of ViVid available to the rest of us outside of Japan.

For now, here is a list of the episodes that have been released thus far, covering up to the end of the (training) vacation at Lutecia’s home.
That’s 17 chapters of the manga covered so far.
Even if you already have the video file, consider checking out the link for the version 2 subtitles.

  1. [anon] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 01 [9543C486].mkv
  2. [anon] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 02 [D7AF278A].mkv
  3. [anon] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 03 [CC44FD3F].mkv
  4. [anon] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 04 [4350A67D].mkv
  5. [anon] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 05 [6D5FDC73].mkv

  7. [anon] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 07 [10DC519B].mkv

Since these are released anonymously, there isn’t an author page that has links to all of TheRon’s releases. But if you want to make sure you get a hold of the episode as quickly as possible, just run a search for nanoha vivid on between Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Then you’ll be seeing it as soon as it’s released.

EDIT: For those just checking this out, here’s links to the next episodes.
