Dieci looking over Midchilda
|Japanese name||ミッドチルダ |
|First app.||Nanoha (introduced)|
StrikerS manga (ch.3, depicted)
Name[edit | edit source]
"Midchilda", commonly shortened to Mid (ミッド Middo), is the official spelling in StrikerS and subsequent series as well as THE MOVIE 1st. However, it had also once been spelled as "Mid-Childa" in the Device card gift of A's DVD volumes.
History[edit | edit source]
Midchilda is the central world in the Nanoha series, as it is home to the technologically advanced civilization that developed the magic system practiced by most characters in the series, including the eponymous Nanoha Takamachi. Although mentioned as early as the original series, Midchilda was first prominently featured in StrikerS anime and manga. It has later become the setting of Sound Stage X, ViVid, and among other worlds, Force.
Notable locations[edit | edit source]
The world of Midchilda seems to have only one major (settled) continent, which is sub-divided into five regions: Central (中央区画 Chūō Kukaku), North, West, East, and South. Midchilda has two moons.
