ViVid Strike! (ViVid Strike!(ヴィヴィッド ストライク) Vividdo Sutoraiku) is an anime series produced by Masaki Tsuzuki and Seven Arcs, which originally aired between October 2, 2016 and December 18, 2016. It is part of the core Nanoha canon and features many returning characters from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid and its anime adaptation.

Like StrikerS Sound Stage X, the series' title does not contain "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha", indicating Nanoha Takamachi (and other characters from earlier series) makes only a few cameo appearances in it.


The plot concerns Fuka Reventon, a young magical martial artist apprenticed to Einhard Stratos (secondary heroine in ViVid), as well as Fuka and her new friends' athletic achievements and her relationship with her estranged childhood friend Rinne Berlinetta, also a prominent martial artist. It is set in 0080, one year after the timeline of ViVid, with Vivio Takamachi attending elementary fifth grade in St. Hilde Academy of Magic and Nakajima Gym having already replaced Team Nakajima.
