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.

So apologies for the wait but here we go, it’s time for…

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
  6. [anon] Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid – 06 [E9361FC1].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.

Looking for Nanoha ViVid episode 1 with subs? EDIT (ep 2 now)

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.

Peaceful Memories

Translator :  Kinsei
Raw Scanning : Satsuki
Raw Cleaning : Crazy Hat
Proofreading : Kira Wing, Cthulhudpc

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.
