Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE 1st (魔法少女リリカルなのは The MOVIE 1st Mahō Shōjo Ririkaru Nanoha Za Mūbī Fāsuto) is a movie that was released January 23, 2010. It is an alternate history remake of the original Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, covering Nanoha Takamachi's search for the Jewel Seeds and her meeting with Fate Testarossa. The movie does not replace the first season's place in canon but retells it, existing as a sort of alternate universe. It exists within the original continuity as a semi-biographical movie created after the events of StrikerS, with Nanoha and Fate themselves as consultants.


While the movie follows the general plot of the original series, it also deviates from it in many details, e.g. Bardiche and Raising Heart have taken a different shape. Raising Heart in particular has a different set of forms and modes in the film.

Another important change is the inclusion of Fate's backstory, particularly Linith, who has only appeared in Nanoha Sound Stage 02 and not in the original series itself. The movie also gives a more sympathetic characterization to Presea Testarossa, who comes to realize the wrongness of her actions towards Fate in the end, though it doesn't change the original ending where she and Alicia's body disappear in the imaginary space. In-universe (that is, in the primary continuity, where the movie exists as a semi-fictional work), this is explained by Fate's demands that her mother is depicted more favorably.
