Latest Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Film’s October Release Date Revealed

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha DetonationMagical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Detonation, the fourth film in the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise, will explode into Japanese theaters October 19, it was announced Sunday.

A poster for the film, which shows Nanoha and crew ready for action, was also revealed.

Filmgoers who purchase tickets early (starting May 18) will receive exclusive clear files with the poster printed on ‘em (not exactly clear then, are they?!).

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha began life as a 2004 series directed by Akiyuki Shinbo. Said series subsequently received several sequels and spinoffs, including last year’s Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection, which our own Joseph Luster kinda dug.

Detonation will be directed by Takayuki Hamana (Reflection) with a script from Nanoha creator Masaki Tsuzuki and music by Misa Chujo (1st and 2nd films).
