Nanoha StrikerS... Nanoha?

Recently I’ve came across a promotional poster for the upcoming Nanoha StrikerS anime. However I think that this highly anticipated third instalment in the series will disappoint a few people, including myself. Why?

The reason lies in the poster itself:


Well, as you can see there are four new characters. Aside the suspicious thought that the grown-up Nanoha, Fate and Hayate were not loli enough for the audience, it is a bad move nevertheless. There has been quite a bit of character development in the past two series, and now they’re essentially throwing it away. That would be such a waste (and why would be the show called Nanoha, when the main character is no longer her?). Anyway, I’ll make sure to watch at least the first episode, scheduled for April 1st, 2007.
