So now I'm completly lost. If there's any gentle soul around, can you tell exactly how many anime seasons (so far I've seen the first, A's and StrikerS), manga releases and/or games/novels exist about Nanoha? God bless the one who answers.
Adding to Eva's list:

3 TV series
-Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (13 eps)
-Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's (13 eps, 6 months later)
-Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS (26 eps, ~10 years later, not counting epilogue time skip)

Movie
-Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha THE MOVIE 1st (re-telling of season 1, coming soon)

Manga
-Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's
-Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's to StrikerS

Sound Stages/Drama CD's
-Nanoha Sound Stage 01
-Nanoha Sound Stage 02
-Nanoha Sound Stage 03
-Megami Sound Stage 1

-Nanoha A's Sound Stage 01
-Nanoha A's Sound Stage 02
-Nanoha A's Sound Stage 03
-Megami Sound Stage 2

-Nanoha StrikerS Sound Stage 01
-Nanoha StrikerS Sound Stage 02
-Nanoha StrikerS Sound Stage 03
-Nanoha StrikerS Sound Stage 04
-Megami Sound Stage 3
-StrikerS Sound Stage X (story set 3 years after StrikerS and centers on the StrikerS cast, specifically the Teana, Subaru and the numbers)

Novel
-Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (re-telling of season 1, though the novel sometimes takes a different course)

That about covers all of the Nanoha material I think.

Question concerning naming. Is it Raising Heart or Raging Heart? Belka or Velka?

Ah, figured they were just sound stages because of the names. What makes a Sound Stage a Sound Stage or a Drama CD anyway?

I think that's how they opted to name them. Unlike the Drama CDs, the SoundStages are a mix of OST and a few drama tracks if I recall.

Sound Stage is just what 7arc named these drama cds

* Wonders why "Sound stage" X is labeled by keroko as drama cd while the other aren't"

@Eva
Ohter drama CDs also have a mix of music tracks and drama tracks

Mostly because it had its own seperate storyline while the others were more 'in between' moments. I figured the difference between Sound Stages and Drama CD's were that Drama CD's were stand-alone.

Question: does the helicopter in Riot Force 6 have a call sign? Like Long Arch-03 or something?

The helicopter's type is a JF704, but for a 'callsign', it shares the name of the Device uploaded in it: Storm Raider.

Flurry of questions, with answers backed up with sources if possible:

1. Which is Verossa's family name: Acous or Verossa?

2. What is his family background?

3. Apart from Chrono's passing mention of Carym to be Verossa's sister in law, are there any other details of Verossa's and Carym's ties?

4. Is Carym married?

Edited (again...) for accuracy. (...and to save face. )

1. His family name is Acous.

2. It appears that he was orphaned as a child and "picked up" (拾われた) by the Gracia family but it's unclear whether they actually adopted him into their family or if they just had him placed in the care of the Church.

3. The word used for Carim's relation to Verossa is "義姉" (and "義弟" for the opposite) which I've seen translated as both "sister-in-law" and "stepsister." (I'm guessing it works in the same way as "義父" which can be translated as "father-in-law," "stepfather," or "foster father.")

4. Unknown.

Magical ranking question:

Is it
S- < S < S+ or
S < S- < S+?

If it's S- < S, doesn't that mean it's the same as AAA+?

As far as I know, it's: S- < S < SS < SSS

And I guess S- is inbetween AAA+ and S...

Anything greater than SSS? How is "rank" determined?

SSS+ is the highest possible rank, but those kind of capabilities would be akin to DBZ stuff. The highest we've ever seen is Hayate, who's a "synthetic" SS-rank. Presumably the synthetic part means that she doesn't have complete control over her abilities or that she's useless without Rein II or something like that.

Ranks seem to be determined partially by power and partially by a mage's ability to accomplish tasks related to their area of expertise. For instance, if Subaru had decided to be a medic instead of a ground combat mage, her advancement exam would have been related to healing magic instead of a combat examination.

There's no official ranking higher than SSS. The highest ranking we've ever seen in series is Hayate, who's SS.

Rank is determined by a number of factors. How skilled an individual is as well as how much 'mana' that someone has plays a big part of it. Case in point would be a discussion back in season one where it's mentioned that nanoha and fate have x amounts of 'mana' in comparison to chrono's amount, which IRC was slightly less than that of Nanoha and Fates, but he still ranked higher due to his skill and technique.

So coming back to Nya~n's question about the difference between AAA+ and S-, it would likely be either a difference in skill level, or a difference in 'mana', as opposed to AAA+ and S, where it would be a combination of the two major factors above, in addition to anything else that rank is based on.
