Synopsis:


Two years ago, a pair of idols, Tsubasa Kazanari and Kanade Amō, collectively known as ZweiWing, fought against an alien race known as Noise using armor known as Symphogear. To protect a girl named Hibiki Tachibana, who got severely wounded by the Noise, Kanade sacrificed herself. Two years later, as Tsubasa has fought the Noise alone, Hibiki ends up gaining the same power as Kanade.


One of the rare little gems that some anime fans might of missed this Winter season as the series just finished today. Anyways, I watched the first episode of it and thought was decent. I mean, hot girls dancing and singing to music with drama and action? ~sign me up~

I've been watching it since it started.
Love the music and the animation is good.

Characters are ok but a little generic, really like the designs though and I love each character's theme music, Especially Chris, her music has a really cool edge to it.

great Action and a good amount of Drama, little bit dark.

and again the Music for this series is great. OP and ED themes are fantastic and the Character themes are great. When/if Funi puts it out on DVD I'm hoping they do a Collector box with a music CD.

I'm curious whether the beginning of the first episode was trolling us hard or what I saw at the end of episode 12 was only a temporary miracle that will be followed by a heavy payment.

Well, the literal title of the show is "Swan song of the Valkyries: Symphogear". Based on the Greek influences, and episode 1, I'm expecting a tragedy.

No, but she has a girlfriend. ;)

It was a fun show. If you want over-the-top action, it does it well. Plus, I've never laughed so hard at some of the worst Engrish to be put in a show. Plus, the Apocalypse being a blend of Judeo-Christian and Greek mythology was pretty clever. Don't mess with the Furies.

I didn't care for the extended music videos, but, since it was a major plot point, I did my best not to let it bother me. It helped that the music wasn't bad.

Not a bad series imo. I don't have much to add although that delayed stream was a bit annoying. Overall theme and soundtrack is alright and action filled drama is pretty intense.

Anyways, 8/10 for me.
