Well, that was a fairly interesting premiere episode. Show tells you someone dies within the first two minutes, jumps back two years, we see her almost dying and she turns in to an evil mecha at the end of show. Along the way, throw in singing, blood, death, henshins, cheesy finisher move cut-ins and random sacrificing heroines…. yeah.
One complaint I do have is how bloody cheap the concert animation looked. Almost as bad as Dog Days even. Seriously, if you are going to sell a show with the premise of one or more of the characters being singers… and then animate the concert in such a shitty way, I’d rather have stills instead. I guess it’s understandable though, since they spent most of it on the fights. Not that those were very impressive too, though.
Still, the show seems fairly interesting enough. Even conveying a real “the world is in crisis” setting. Then, there’s that hook right at the beginning of the show that is too intriguing to ignore, plus the songs sound fairly good enough, so I guess I’ll be elevating this to raw-watch status. I just wonder if Aoi Yuuki’s gonna sing too though. Now, that’ll be interesting.
I’m sorry I’m so out of touch with hentai anime I didn’t notice Symphogear was one.
