Anime: Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS
aka: Nanoha Strikers

In the land where ancient crystals and infinite greed gather and intertwine,
the wings shall revive from the holy land beneath the dead king.
The dead shall dance, and the tower of law in the central lands shall burn to the ground,
but before this, the ship of law that guards the many seas shall be torn apart.

The third season in the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise and so far the last to be animated.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, takes place ten years after the second series, with the previous cast having become high-ranking members of the TSAB.

Following the emergence of a new type of Lost Logia called Relics, Nanoha, Fate and Hayate seek permission to form "Section Six", an elite rapid response team and training squad composed of powerful veterans and talented rookies.

As their investigation into the Relics continues, Section Six comes into conflict with Mad Scientist Jail Scaglietti and his all-female group of cybernetic operatives, the Numbers. Jail is the mastermind behind a number of illegal projects, such as the creation of Artificial Mages and Combat Cyborgs, and now he has his eye set on the Relics. Section Six also runs into Vivio, a orphan of the same "Project F" that created Fate, who Nanoha and Fate decide to adopt as their own child. When Vivio is suddenly kidnapped by Jail, who intends to use her as the lynchpin of his ultimate plan, Section Six must mobilise to save her and stop Jail's plans once and for all.

Unlike the first two seasons, this one had a full 26 episodes instead of 13. It had the largest cast so far and shifted the tone to a darker, more SF/military feel.

It has a supplementary Slice of Life manga and Sound Stages that take place between the episodes. StrikerS Sound Stage X could be considered its Spin-Off, as it only feature the new characters from this season.

NOTE: Only general tropes for the series are listed here. For character-specific ones, check out the character sheets.
