Nanoha GamerS Index


Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS is the third season of a popular anime where a little girl blasted her opponents in order to teach them the meaning of friendship. Now that little girl has grown up, and gathered a team of other high-powered characters to further spread the love.

When StrikerS first came out, apart from a great many comments about the odd capitalization, I also made a series of posts on it. One of them in particular percolated at the back of my brain for a significant period of time, until finally something snapped.

I'm a diehard fan and player of City of Heroes, a superhero-themed MMORPG. Some time ago, CoH ran a contest involving Comic Book Creator, which I was not eligible to enter (being halfway across the world from the US and Canada), but the idea of making screenshot comics intrigued me. I tried it out for a while.

Which led, somewhat inevitably, to this.

At the moment, I have to manually update this page, so expect delays between comics going up and being listed here.

Considering the sheer amount of lowbrow humour and dirty jokes in this comic, reader discretion is advised. I'd use a "mature" description if this were not patently untrue.

Legal Stuff and Credits

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha and its sequels are the creations of Seven Arcs, and no infringement is intended. In fact, considering how amazingly illegal this may turn out to be (Fair Use clauses being a bit murky), I may have to throw myself at the mercy of my relative obscurity.

Major thanks obviously go out to Seven Arcs for creating Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS in the first place, and Planetwide Media for Comic Book Creator. Credit goes to Cryptic Studios and NCSoft for City of Heroes, from whence the large majority of the gaming jokes come from. Despite all my complaining about various aspects of such, without them, none of this would be possible, quite literally.

Several of the comic fonts come from Blambot. I'm particularly fond of Mainframe and Gunhead Chick. Red Circle comes from the City of Heroes fansite kit.

Finally, to head off any comparisons in that direction, yes, I know about Shamus Young's DM of the Rings, and I must credit it for the numbering scheme I'm using for GamerS. If you like Dungeons and Dragons and the Lord of the Rings movies, go check it out: Shamus is much better at this than I am.

Usage and Remixes

Once again, due to the murky legal/ethical situation, if you want to use any part of this comic, please abide by the following:

  1. Mention Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS as the source. (Or Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, "Nanoha StrikerS", whatever.) This is important. Really.
  2. You don't have to say who made the comic. At all. No, really. I'm completely fine with it. My only goal is to make people laugh, or at least crack a smile; anything else, including recognition, is a bonus.
  3. No need for my permission if you want to repost it or anything. Go right ahead.
  4. Feel free to do anything you want with the comics, in part or in whole. However, if you change anything, don't say I made it (you can say I made the original, if you want, or not; up to you), and do be aware that all this may not be exactly and strictly legal. So don't go selling it or anything.
  5. Because it's come up a few times: no, I did not consciously or subconsciously get the idea for this comic from DM of the Rings. I got it from the City of Heroes comic contest. I highly respect Shamus Young's work (and am now a regular reader of his blog), but the inspiration came from somewhere completely different. This is also why I'm not closely following the "GM and his players" format.

I have to admit that I never expected enough interest in this to have to make a FAQ.

    This is pretty funny. And I'm not one to talk about legal: I have a zillion ROMs and MP3s and a bootleg of Revenge of The Fallen. A really bad one. Someone took a camera in to a showing with English audio but German subtitling instead of the English subtitling. Nanoha is great.
