“You killed my lesbian lover.”

“Now you die.”

Sorry, but the subtext was just begging for it to be vocalized.

The show is really trying to run this whole Symphogear thing very seriously and outsource the comedy to Hibiki and school life scenes. Seeing a very serious Nana is also another draw for me.

If anything though, the show’s musical aspect is very well done. The OP had a nice audiovisual synchronosity to it plus all the Nana insert songs are so very delicious, mainly due to the chanting. Damn, they should make an Ar Tonelico with Nana. fry_take_all_my_money.jpg.

Unfortunately the ED stumbles a bit. The song isn’t bad, but they surely could’ve done better on the visual aspect of it?

    Tsubasa is like the only serious character in this show; there is such a huge gap from episode 1 to 2: all the dead people and then they try to make forced humor in episode 2…
    Maybe they were trying to imitate Madoka’s ED… the walking silhouette

    I feel like Hibiki is another Madoka, right down to the voice.

    The minute they started talking about magic rocks I was reminded unpleasantly of Sacred Seven.

    I would like to remind Ao-chan that they are making another Madoka Magica with Ar Tonelico and Mai Otome transformation scenes… in case she did not found that out herself.

    I admit, my soul cried foul after watching this.

    @Metalnsnakezero

    You’re absolutely right! Although Aoi Yuuki’s singing voice needs some work!

    Still, that Tsubasa is getting angsty after Kanade died!
