The shows on Ep.4 now, in 2 days Ep.5. I cant find a page for BRS - TV on CR. If there isn't one can someone whose good at making pages start one or inform someone they know in Library. When I asked I was directed to 2 groups and the page for the OVA.

Oh wow the amount of GRIMDARK and symbolism is insane. Loving the atmosphere too. If Madoka is the deconstruction of the magical girl genre then this probably reconstructs the high school girls slice-of-life genre.

Also am I the only one who absolutely loves DARK Saya. Best advisor all year every year! My role model.

I know what you mean. While Symphogear tries too hard to recreate the magic of Madoka, this has gone in the opposite direction. It is even more symbolic and isn't apologetic about it. I'm enjoying this unique take on the magical girl genre.

I like her too, but I certainly don't want her as my adviser. :)

I might give Senki Zesshō Symphogear a try in the future tbh. Based on a recent poll though, it is not a popular series to watch according to Japan critics and fans. It also reminded me of Macross Frontier when I first watched the trailer awhile back.

I'm liking Symphogear allright. but I think Rinne no Lagrange is better for the mechagirls anime. also given that it's strongly implied in episode one that the heroine is dead... it's kinda hard to invest.


BRS on the other hand. I'm enjoying and now episode five. The thick Plottens.

Ok, so I just watched episode 5 and plot definitely strengths a bit. Anyway, here are my thoughts:

- Yomi's gone insane:


- Saya (the counselor) is also insane:


Black Rock Shooter goes insane:


Also, the star at the ending is...
. Oh, what does this mean?

I thought this was okay from the description, but after i saw the first episode. I just gave up. it was too confusing for me and i just couldn't grasp what was going on.

You can't always expect to understand everything that is going on from the first episode of an anime. I sometimes find it to be interesting when there is some mystery in the plot as it makes you want to watch more to figure out what is going on. This anime is getting more epic by the episode thus far.

Interesting Idea... it could very well be... something else too... since living beings always get new greivances does that mean your BRSworld avatar can come back?
