''Magical Record Lyrical Nanoha Force'' is a manga, part of the ''[[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Nanoha]]'' franchise. It's set six years after ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS StrikerS]]'' and is considered the fourth season, even though ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid ViVid]]'' chronologically predates it by two years InUniverse and a few months in RealLife. It's running in Nyantype, Newtype's SpinOff magazine.

The plot revolves around a new [[LostTechnology Lost Logia]] called the forbidden Bible of the Silver Cross, which is somehow linked to a mysterious affliction known as the [[TheVirus Eclipse Virus]]. When a young traveller called Thoma rescues a girl called Lily from a series of cruel experiments involving the Forbidden Book, he too becomes infected with the Eclipse Virus. This grants him superhuman strength, incredible magical power, a potent HealingFactor and near-perfect AntiMagic abilities, but also [[SuperpoweredEvilSide an uncontrollable thirst for murder]].

Notice how the [[GenreShift "Magical Girl"]] was dropped from the title. Indeed this installment departs from the signature ''Nanoha'' style, going further into DarkerAndEdgier territory than ever before, in rather sharp contrast to the concurrently running ''[=ViVid=]'' manga. Fandom reactions have been sharply divided.

** Chapter 27 was basically this in a nutshell the narrative switching between [[GoldfishPoopGang The Grendels]] making an escape attempt and failing (due to [[{{Badass}} Nanoha]]) and [[spoiler: Curren & Veyron's attack on the holding cell and fighting Hades Vandein]].

* ContinuitySnarl: In chapter 29, Fate states that she's not familiar with age-changing magic [[spoiler:when she sees Curren do so]], almost as if she'd never been through the events of ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid'' where Vivio and Einhart have such abilities.

* ForgottenPhlebotinum: The Numbers from ''[=StrikerS=]'' appear very little in this series, despite getting quite a bit of screen time in contemporary production ''Vivid''. [[StoryBreakerPower Probably because the whole point of the Numbers is that they don't use magic and would therefore easily take the Huckebein apart, invalidating the entire plot.]]

For various reasons, ''Force'' was put onto a prolonged hiatus in September 2013.

* SequelEscalation: ''Force'' carries on and escalates the themes [=StrikerS=] started the series on of a DarkerAndEdgier shift away from idealism, as well as giving an AntiMagic that is actually powerful enough to force a paradigm change rather than the nearly worthless stuff in ''Anime/StrikerS'' that was quickly forgotten about once the characters took off the {{Power Limiter}}s.

* EndOfAnAge: Force shows the start of the end of the magic age, with the Eclipse having AntiMagic strong enough to actually obsolete magic and force the (re)introduction of physical weapons, unlike ''[=StrikerS=]'', where the heroines could simply power through it.

Or it's ''trying'' to, but fan reaction and its hiatus are rather forcefully pushing it towards discontinuity.

* DispelMagic: The [[LivingWeapon Eclipse Drivers]] are capable of instantly dispelling magic of any kind almost at whim, which makes them extremely dangerous to the magic-dependent society at large and to the magic-using main characters in particular.
