Real stylin’ there, Finé.
Maria’s Symphogear song is really amazing and perfect for battle scenes.
Man, that cape sure is nifty.
But Tsubasa’s not just going to let the cape steal the show!
Looks like another draw.
Welp, time for retreat. And no wonder they have perfect entrances and escapes…
Too bad for Chris, you couldn’t use your new Symphogear attack :P
Ehhh interesting, they can use the relics in that manner too.
It’s time for some befriending to be going on!
Ah look, Miku finally gets an apperance!
Ahahahahahaa anime girl and her friends are really great comic relief.
Even comes with the attack name shouts!
Meanwhile….. some unexpected visitors arrive.
That is some great logic there, Kirika.
Ehh…. that didn’t went down well with Shirabe (her pouting is so cute hnnnnnggghhhh)
Lol, not again. Is this going to be a running joke? (pun not intended)
And time for the best part of the episode, Chris on stage!
Awwww yeaahh Chris’ singing!
Ahahah, so that’s how she got those fangirls of hers. She’s just too cute to be left alone www
Chris’ singing is the best ｡･ﾟ･(ﾉ∀`)･ﾟ･｡
But uh-oh, we’ve got ourselves some gatecrashers!
Wow, Symphogear G is on a roll here. This episode had good balance between the action scenes with exposition and campus life parts. Plus capping it off with Chris’ performance on stage was really amazing. I wish this show wouldn’t be so good since it’s totally blowing away almost every other show airing currently.
More interesting revelations include Maria actually still keeping the Finé in her in check, but it seems to be a losing battle if she overexerts herself. Interesting how they made Tsubasa think she’s also another LiNKER user. I’d honestly didn’t really expect the Finé twist coming up because I totally thought she was going to get befriended but if she loses herself to Finé then it’s probably not going to be a very pretty ending…
The other thing was the ability to use relics without having someone to be its user, which gives some interesting ideas. Plus it sounds like the Nephilim “thing” eats those things for breakfast, lunch and dinner so the bad guys sure have quite a lot of them lying around huh. And that Dr. Ver is really one of Sugita’s creepiest roles, heh.
One thing I’ve noticed is the missing sister of Maria, Serena, who hasn’t appeared till now. But then again, it looks like she might have perished in the flashback all the way back in episode 1, so Maria’s motives are probably connected to that incident. It did show Serena apparently using her Superb Song and retrieving the Nephilim embryo/seed/whatever, but we have no idea on her fate…
Out of the original cast though, Chris is definitely getting the lion’s share of character development. She’s been really stealing the show last week and this week, heh. Ahh her performance for this episode’s ending was really great and I’ve lost count how much I’ve looped it. Wonder how’s next week going to be like with Kirika and Shirabe challenging her to a song battle? Damn it, the wait for the next week is going to be hard…
