Senki Zesshou Symphogear G 06

BOUSOU….. DATTO?!!

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Holy shit cheat mode engaged.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Oh man, she’s going at the Nephilim real hard.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Ouch…. Bikki you’re real scary here.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

And she goes in for the finish right there.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Oh wow, it actually restored her hand too. Man, her berserker mode is kinda OP.

Hibiki going into berserker mode was within expectations but damn, they really went all out with it. Also, they even made it restore her arm just like that… crazy. Upsides of having a relic body fusion I suppose. Oh well, there goes the crazy “rocket punch” prosthetic arm angle w

Also, the Hibiki trauma flashbacks from episode 1 finally got explained….

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

…. and it’s apparently from the earlier concert attack 2 years ago that started it all? And she’s being blamed for…. surviving the attack? What the hell is this shit? Symphogear can be pretty out of it sometimes… I understand survivor guilt, but survivor blaming is ridiculous.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Fight on, Hibiki! You can’t lose to those idiots.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Well, she heals fast at least! But in actuality….

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Oh boy, it’s actually pretty dang risky for her too. Hm… I still get the feeling she’ll just punch her way through that in the end!

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Meanwhile, Dr. Ver is really getting out of it. Well… he did see his advantage got overturned easily and bloodily by Bikki’s crazy berserker mode.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Ahahaha, anime girl has very little screentime but she really makes the most of it!

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Well shit…

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Holy shit… did she just punch the Noise barehanded?!!

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Bikki’s mad there man, real mad. You don’t ever want to make her mad, man.

So I guess the lesson of this episode, if they won’t let you befriend them when you stretch your hand to them…. you just gotta befriend them even harder.

But in all seriousness, G has got some good momentum going for it but it’s slowing down. I’m slightly ambivalent with the whole “Bikkie’s gonna die” angle they introduced this week, since they pulled that “she’s gonna die” bullshit last season but turned out to be a red herring in the end. And I was really hoping for something concrete with that “trauma” Bikkie hinted on back in episode 1… but they kinda messed that up big time, me thinks. It’s not a big issue, though… just makes no sense because this wasn’t even mentioned once in season 1.

Still, I guess they did a good job building the urgency of the overarching plot. After all the Moon’s still (possibly) falling down to Earth. Section 2 better run those orbital calculations again! And we still got Maria, Kirika and Shirabe to join the sleepovers!

OP also got a minor upgrade this week, just look at those cut-ins for the girls now.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

Damn, that’s pretty badass stuff.

    To clear some thing
    As the sole survivor hibiki was hated by everyone because all of their family is dead so why hibiki doesn’t. (my friend said that this was a common sense in japan)
    Another one is because hibiki’s family received a compensation beacuse of the noise attack. Everyone that survive this kind of special incident will received a huge sum of money. Of course the money came from the tax.

    The next one is about hibiki dying. There is a chance that she could survived the full fusion of gungnir but can she still be called a human if it were to happen. This was the most worrying thing for genjuro and tsubasa.

    Sugibro has finally lost it, if he can’t go back to the days where he was harem lead, he’ll just destroy the world out of rage.
    Lucky Aoi Yuki is there to stop him.

    ahaha, and just when the nephilim got stronger, hibiki got MUCH stronger…

    really though I wanna see dr. ver kick the bucket soon. he’s showing how much of a pussy he is panicking and scared shitless. arrogant is annoying enough, but after what he’s shown here ive lost my respect now.

    Those cutins were amazing.

    Sad about the robot arm going out the window though.

    The closing few lines of the episode went well with the reveal that her relic is (supposedly) going to end up killing her. Seems like she’s accepted that the Symphogear is her life now, maybe on some level she knows that it’s slowly killing her.

    Definitely agree about the slowing momentum and the red herring stuff. The show could have a very strong finish if it ended in a tragedy since we’re expecting it to be another fake-out. A classic heroic sacrifice seems fitting but this is anime so that’s probably not going to happen. She’ll probly just end up overcoming the fusion with Gungnir by using the power of friendship to survive and keep punching everything.

    I still think that is ridiculous. But it’s :japan: after all *shrug*

    really though I wanna see dr. ver kick the bucket soon. he’s showing how much of a pussy he is panicking and scared shitless.

    I guess he just got too traumatized after seeing his “creation” getting kicked in the ass so hard AND his “hero” going all berserker mode.

    MAIN CHARACTER POWAH!

    “As the sole survivor hibiki was hated by everyone because all of their family is dead so why hibiki doesn’t. (my friend said that this was a common sense in japan”.

    You’re creepily weird, Japan.
