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.

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 on Nyaa.se between Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Then you’ll be seeing it as soon as it’s released.
If you’ve been waiting for more Nanoha Innocent but didn’t know where the next chapter would be coming from, well, we finally have our answer.
A first timer by the name AriteDrop has just released Innocent chapter 9. Go show some support and dive right back into the AU that stole our hearts.
EDIT: Link to non-mobile version.
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.

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.
