Reading this topic, I am beginning to get the feeling this is one of those rare cases where the sequel outshines the original.

For those that have seen both, what is your opinion?


I like both seasons a lot, but I suppose I would say that this season is better. I REALLY love the first season still, but this season has better budget, more songs, and amazing cliffhangers.

I really wish more people would give the show a shot, but I think they can't wrap themselves around the idea of the show. People have to learn that this is a Musical show, so obviously it will seem corny in a lot of ways, musicals in such media formats have almost always been this way. For example, movies like Sweeney Todd, or Little Shop of Horrors, are both shows that would be amazingly dark and dramatic without the singing, but the musical aspect makes them come off as more "Entertaining" and this is EXACTLY what Symphogear is all about! Symphogear is pulling out all the stops to be as entertaining as a Musical anime with action and girls can be, and I think it pulls it off wonderfully.

I also wish Funimation or someone else would pick up Symphogear G for subs though. It sucks that I can't even recommend Symphogear to my College's Anime Club, because we only use legal sources. I want people to watch both of the seasons so bad. But yea, this is by far my favorite show this season... in fact, this year!

jesus christ, holy fuck tits. I'm a little late to the party but I just watched Episode 10 and I can't believe what my waifu did! ;-; I seriously love this anime series, it's climbing the ranks for my all-time favorites...I'm anxious for the next few episodes and then I can say where it really ranks w/everything I've seen. this was just disgustingly awesome! Chris' fighting was badass! she's such a badass! but yeah, what everyone else said and those fight scenes, cliffhangers, and all the great twists, song lyrics and singing! oh my!

-edit-

the darkside is strong w/this one.

I'm totally buying everything Symphogear in time.

I'm trying to be quasi-legal with this one and at least not use leech sites... so youtube is what I've been using. Versions with OP and ED are getting their audio tracks zapped which sucks because then you miss the after the credits stuff which is so important for episode 10. So the version I found with the whole show has french subs (I prefer raw as I've said) but today the french subs actually work LOL:



Amazing series overall. I normally don't buy stuff I can't stream legally but in this case I might have to so I can see it properly. Sigh...

Edit: ordered the first 8 character song CDs plus the OP and ED CDs (and Through All Eternity - Mushibugyo's 2nd ED) from CDJapan... Might not ship until the 18th when Miku's CD 8 comes out. Her single just pushes it over the top for me! Will think about BD1 for October 2nd as well.

If we ever get season 3, i doubt any villain will be able to surpass Ver. He's so crazy, and Sugita talking in that manner is brilliant.

he's still only my 2nd most hated villain. Jail Scaglietti from Nanoha StrikerS is still higher on the d-bag meter, but Ver still has more episodes to try and top him.

Want the youtube link? It has no sound though Honestly the music is probably 60% of the reason to watch this show so you'd have to play it simultaneously in a second window for the sound... that might even work...

I think I have to order the Blurays now as each of the 6 discs comes with a bonus soundtrack. I'm not sure I can live without those! Oh and bonus short OVAs on the last two discs.

Actually I wanted to ask you since (now) you mentioned you like the music.

I asked this to other users, do they like to see the karaoke effects of the songs? However for you since you understand Japanese. What is your take on karaoke effects on shows you like?

and no thank you, thanks for the offer though

Karaoke effects??? Not sure what you mean.

I think the Karaoke effects AK is talking when it scrolls across the screen! The site I use does a very nice job with subs on the btm and the lyrics on top Both match script wise and not too large,This is one anime where the songs are cool and important.BTW Chris's song in EP 10 was quite colorful.

I see. There are no karaoke effects in the raw... they just sing so you just listen to the song and the dialogue with your ears... allowing me to enjoy the animated visuals with my eyes rather than reading:

Though this character song has Japanese karaoke popup lyrics:

Very helpful for singing but of course more helpful when Yoshino Nanjo isn't already singing Oukyo Shurushagana Of course you get the actual karaoke (instrumental) version when you buy the CD so you can try to sing it yourself. Add cosplay and voila!

Yoshino is just awesome BTW! Also plays Eri in LoveLive! and she is one of if not the strongest singer there. The B-side of Okyou Shurushagana is PRACTICE MODE and it is great too! This version has cool Japanese karaoke effects:

Inching closer and closer to the climax

Seeing a couple of possibilities here
A) Hibiki not as powerless as we might think
B) Hibiki will inherit Maria's Gungnir

Have to say one of the things I love about this season is how Dr. Ver is just scared witless of Hibiki. You see plenty of villains that hate the hero or think obsessive "bad-wrong" thoughts of the hero but very rarely do you see one who is just plain terrified of the hero.

I bet even when she is standing in front of him no powers at all Ver is still going to wet himself in terror.
