Senki Zesshou Symphogear G 01

Fuck yeah, more Symphogear! Hey stop giving me all this Ar Tonelico vibes from the start

Symphogear G

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Oh well, they made up for period face right away…

Symphogear G

Chris!!!! \o/ (what does she think Hibikin is trying to do with her finger wwww)

Symphogear G

HNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGHHHHHHHH that embarassed face.

Symphogear G

Perfect teamwork there.

Symphogear G

Hell yeah, special attack cut-ins are back! Three in a row makes me very happy.

Symphogear G

Hibikin still doesn’t get any cut-ins but who cares? Just look at that Rocket Punch!

Symphogear G

Omg stop having these two being so lovey-dovey together. I’m shipping them hard enough already.

Symphogear G

Very obviously the villain, amirite?

Symphogear G

Concert scene time! Also lol are those lance microphones?

Symphogear G

Symphogear G

Glad to see you back too, anime girl.

Not wasting any time establishing who’s the enemy this season.

Wow. Symphogear G premiere easily went above my expectations and delivered so much fun. I hope they didn’t accidentally blow their budget on this episode already, because they’ve just raised my expectations for this sky high.

A great action set piece from Hibiki and Chris kicked off the episode, setting a great tone for Symphogear from the start. Loved how cute Chris has become. Also nice to see the amazing teamwork between her and Hibiki, and I admittedly squee’d a bit when the ohime-sama dakko save happened *blush*…

Following up on that is of course the concert scene, with the Yoko Hikasa and Nana Mizuki duet song performance. Definitely didn’t feel it was “cheap”, unlike how the original series kicked off. Also those lance-shaped microphones really made wonder if they were going to joust on the stage haha. Well it just might happen next week :DDDDD

Anyways, great start to Symphogear S2 and goddamnit, why isn’t it Friday already? Dem cliffhangers…

    Didn’t think the first episode would hit so many good points. It does a better job at setting up the plot of this season than the last one.
    Looking forward to what to come. Also Anime and Rocket punch!

    As I mentioned before I love 99% of anime I’ve seen unfortunately Symphogear makes it to the 1% I don’t…

    Usually I like the over the top mad/random anime but this I just… The MC voice.. I can’t stand it in this show I’m sure I’ve heard her before I somehow find extremely annoying.Friend bitch w/e her name was in the first season the whole relationship they showed was so friggin’ terrible… when she was whining about not telling her anything and it was all under NDA >_<

    I love Horizon for it's randomness and the crazy ass settings more than anything it's definitely one of my most beloved anime =p This show tho doesn't get me in any way besides hate ;/

    Not a bad first episode for the new season of Symphogear! I like the new villain characters and of course epic singing and action!? I just hope it can maintain that level of awesome unlike the first season…

    Netami:

    You do realize that Aoi Yuuki does Hibiki’s voice, right? You know, the same VA who did Madoka Kaname, and a whole lot of other characters (she has a great range)?

    I’m glad to see some love for Symphogear out there :)

    When season 1 initially aired I didn’t like it at all. But then I returned to my childhood and marathoned most of the Macross franchise to rekindle my love of song and fighting. Came back to Symphogear and fell in love, lol.

    Super excited about season 2 now. Hibiki is my favorite, not sure why. I usually don’t like MCs much. I guess she has the right proportion of cuteness/punch-you-in-the-faceness to get me on her bandwagon. Anyone who can punch like that gets my vote! Probably has something to do with the training montage in S1 too.

    Call me the odd man out, but I actually don’t like fanservice at all. Unflattering camera angles are forgiveable sometimes, but I hope they don’t go too overboard with it in season 2. Hopefully the booty shots during the transformations are about all I’ll have to tolerate, lol.

    Consider me a follower if this series keeps getting coverage ;)
