    Ever wondered what it would be like to have a theme song whenever you fought something?
    Much like the first 2 seasons, this one kicks out of the gate like a bat out of hell. The premise of Symphogear is one much like your magical(techno) girl plot; however, in this case the power is derived from relics that are only activated by song. This makes for an amazing experience with an epic sound track (I might use epic a lot in my review...)!

    The characters (most of them anyway) are ...

    Determination to Fist
    It is quite required to watch the first two seasons before this one, but it's highly worth it for this action packed sentai-esque musical. This third season picks up where season 2 left off, bringing more eargasms and adrenaline than ever before.

    One of the best anime series this season. FUN
    Kinda awkward that they only have 3rd season of Symphogear on CR. Anyways this is awesome series to pick up. High octane super power action with singing. Highly recommend to watch first 2 seasons before this one. The 3rd season picks up right after the ending of the second one. Bottom-line watch it, be happy, and prosper.

    So bad it's good? Just good?
    Symphogear is not a smart show. It will not delve into deep themes, have particularly interesting writing, or plot twists you can't see a mile away. Main character herself is a plot device that kind of solves every problem with "because Symphogear". The first part of the first season is a little weak. HOWEVER, it is, for lack of a better word, an awesome show. If you're a fan of insert song ...

    Something Refreshing
    It definately takes away from the usual action grimes, Singing and beautiful vocals are what symphogear is great at! I remember watching Season 1 and was blown away, afterwards kept track of each season, until CR surprised me with S3, it's a shame S1 and 2 are not on here. It's kind of required to have watched this otherwise you will be lost in the sauce. This picks up right where 2 left off. And ...

    Very Weak Writing But Still Remains Fun
    The writing is not very strong in this show, and it's obvious that the writers aren't bringing their A game at all. Half of everything makes no sense and you can't go more than a couple of minutes before stepping into a plot hole. Nonetheless though, this series somehow manages to remain fun and entertaining.

    So let's get the bad out of the way, since it will be obvious to anyone watching this ...

    The most anime anime to ever anime
    Symphogear is not the kind of show you watch for thought-provoking ideas, heart-wrenching drama or an innovative visual style. It is, however, the most gut-punchingly ANIME show I have watched in years, and one of the most straightforwardly enjoyable ones at that.

    Enjoyment of Symphogear rests on three pillars: The amazing music (if you've ever liked a song by Nana Mizuki, this show is ...

    A truly unique series, from beginning to end.
    Symphogear is hands-down one of my favorite series, combining a truly unique premise with memorable characters, fantastic designs, exciting action sequences, and one of the best soundtracks around. There really is nothing else like it, a kind of bizarre love-child where Jojo's Bizarre Adventure meets Magical Girls, Idols, and Magical Power Armor.

    The series shines with an all-star cast, ...

    The Best & Most Underrated Action Series
    After like, 7 years, this show has finally ended with all 5 seasons and I can hardly believe it. Season 3 was a little rough, compared to the others, but outside of that, everything was just amazing. I'm so happy it got this much, but bawling my eyes out that it's over.

    Symphogear is an amazing show where singing provides the power of a bunch of characters to fight in mechanical magical girl ...
