    You'd have to look up the sales figures, but clearly it's profitable enough to warrent continuing.

    It's not about being 'old enough' (since I'm the same age). Do you ever listen to the radio, or maybe even a podcast?

    I've never questioned why this material is being animated, because that much is obvious.

    Sure, fans would buy those kinds of products...but how many? Is the question.

    I'm 22. Not old enough to enjoy audio over a visual story, apparently.

    Still, think about it - just as most manga is turned into anime to make a profit, the Nanoha franchise might be thinking the same thing with the SS.

    Why? It's really not hard to believe that fans would buy products based on a series they love, especially since the sound stages fill in so many blanks.

    I don't know how old you are, but back in the days before TV, entertainment was all audio and no video. I've listened to episodes of The Lone Ranger before and it's just as entertaining as watching TV or reading a book.

    Now it's safe to believe that english speaking fans most likely haven't heard the sound stages, but that's because there were no translations until recently, and if you don't frequent AS you'd never know there were translations at all.

    It's a whole ton cheaper to make too, though. Compared to say, a animated film.

    Either way, I'm sure the sound stages are making them a profit, but it's hard to believe a majority of the Nanoha fans have listened to the sound stages.

    Must have been rather successful if they continued the practise for all 3 seasons, then making SSX, and these movie sound stages.

    Like I said before, for those in Japan they have this extra material readily available to them, so it's their own fault if they refuse to buy sound stages/mangas to get the whole story.

    Seven Arcs provides the hot dog and the ketchup, and it's the consumer's decision to use the ketchup or not.

    Listening to the script while reading it would probably increase the experience...Although as I said, I was already quite touched. But the lack of visuals is such a disappointment to me. I can use my imagination, but to see what the character is going through by use of visuals, would really make a whole lot of difference to me.

    But that aside, I wonder how many Japanese actually listen to the sound stages, compared to watching the anime.

    That's probably why you didn't get the whole experience. It's not that hard to do, though it is easy to slip up. Well, maybe it's because I've been watching fansubs for so long it's easy for me to tell which translation goes with which line.

    Anyways, it really is the best way to experience it, as you have all the voices, sound effects, etc, provided and you just follow along with the english 'script.' All that remains is to use your imagination to visualise the scene.

    I read them, not with the tracks playing...but that's a hard thing to do. For me, atleast

    Did you just read them, or did you read them with the tracks playing?

    Posting on your wall, since your comment was a good time to stop posting about it in the manga thread.

    That is close to what I was referring to, but it's not that the SS02 didn't do a good job. I read it, and it was touching to say the least, but it just can't be compared to a animation or manga. And since it's a popular aspect, that is why I think they chose to put it within the anime movie and manga. The back story is already established, they need only animate what is within those sound stages - and that makes things easier for them.
