After watching Season 2 (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A) i went to watch the 3rd season (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS), at the end of season 2 during the credit roll Nanoha, Fate and Hayate are older and Reinforce has been reborn into a small girl and in season 3 Nanoha, Fate, Hayate and Reinforce all look the same as they did at the very end of season 2 i would assume not too much time has passed since that final scene however the world seems more futuristic and the Space-Time Administration seems to operate in public.

so i am wondering, is Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS set in a different world/universe to the one Nanoha and Hayate were born in


It's the same universe - just some 10 years later.

  • Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate are all grown up. (teenagers as opposed to kids)
  • Signum, Vita, Zafira, and Shamal don't age at all because they are bound to the Book of Darkness (they're not human).
  • is that 10 years after the the original Reinforce said goodbye or 10 years after the final credit roll where we see Reinforce reborn and Nanoha, Fate and Hayate being older – Memor-X Dec 1 '13 at 21:39
  • It's 10 years after the original Reinforce "dies". I'm not sure about the credit roll though. But it's definitely between the two seasons. – Mysticial Dec 1 '13 at 21:40
  • The ending of Nanoha A's was 6 years later than the actual story. Nanoha StrikerS was 10 years later than the actual story, therefore there is a gap of 4 years between those two (Hence, Nanoha and co. are still in school, but aren't in StrikerS). – Roel van Uden Dec 4 '13 at 11:03
