Previous Thread: >>13813071
Is it bad that I thought the second panel was a beyblade?
I'm still convinced it is. You can't stop me.
>anyone being gayer than Miku
>even undeveloped meme characters like Kanade and the dolls
I'm having some doubts about this chart.
I'd think so? Then again, the one dude in the other thread said that the "Nonke" thing doesn't seem to quite literally mean "Heterosexual," so it's possible we're not interpreting the chart quite right.
I tried Bing and that was even more incoherent. Maybe someone should ask zoid.
This comment is very late for the chart discussion, sorry.
"Nonke" here sort of brings the meaning that the character isn't exclusively homosexual; it's just that the person they like in-series just happens to be the same gender.
In other words, they don't actually have a preference. Personally, I don't think bisexual works as a translation, but I can't really put my finger on why.
If only we could figure out how to harness the power of quadtails
I'd assume that's the case.
Man, its been a while since I Nanafagged, I already missed it.
For Nana's birthday, Team Mizuki arranged a special party for her.
On January 28, her manager told her that they'll go to somewhere which is still unknown to Nana, but she definitely must not wear a skirt. After work (which is night of Jan. 28), her manager took her to the meeting place which is a kart racing field. Nana was really surprised, and there she saw the rest of Team Mizuki. They all went racing, and Nana, of course, is included. Its been a while since she did kart racing so she was probably worried if she still knows how to race (she participated in a go kart race back in 2008 with some co-VAs), but she said when held the handle her switch got turned on and she probably went full sakimori.
In the end she didn't win because the men's team were really good (and apparently, tricky).
Though it was not exactly a birthday party, she had lots of fun racing.
The first place winner is Mishima (Nana's producer), as written on the title of her blog entry.
And as for Nana's post for January 30 ("today" in Nana's blog)
Nana went to Mamoru Miyano's concert.
She doesn't really know too much details about it because the tour was ongoing, but she said the stage was full of new challenges.
Miyano's nervousness and worries got transmitted to Nana and they both got nervous.
Lastly, Nana said good luck (to Miyano) because tomorrow is his tour final.
>almost everyone gave Nana a cake for her birthday and some gave her flowers
>Team Mizuki dragged her into a damn racing field and raced with her to celebrate her birthday, no cakes, only dust and wind
Man, working with those guys really sound fun.
Speaking of which, what sort of debased shit do you think she was willing to do to protect Kirika and Shirabe from any perceived threat (real or nonexistent) Dr. Ver presented to them?
We get bits and pieces. That moment in G when you realise she has no idea what she's doing is pretty hilarious in an understated kind of way.
She let him
I don't know if I knew this already and somehow that memory got erased, "Galaxy Cross" shortened to "GX", that's nice.
The flame of faith that resides in my heart
Is one that nobody can extinguish, an eternal blaze
Rocks are the true villains of Symphogear
>Frontier was on a floating rock
>Rocks killed Serena and Ver
>Crystal cancer almost killed Hibiki, crystals are rocks
>Chris was forced to move heavy rocks to build all those pyramids
I personally listen to Pray whenever I'm in slump.
>mfw I watched Live Adventure special
Why not go all the way with corrections?
That's cheating. Everything in Live Theater is glorious.
Scarlet Knight and No Limit in their normal studio version doesn't sound that awesome to me.
>Maria's songs are about flames, fire, and wanting to fly
>Tsubasa's spirit animal is a phoenix
ok guys it's that time again to ask the most painful question of them all, the one that makes us feel a painful sensation in our hearts and feel like monsters
how would you bully each geah? teasing also counts if you don't want to go that far
I'm probably the only one who likes Yukarin's songs more than Nana's. Both in general and specifically for Nanoha.
Toss up from Hohoemi no Plumage, Pleasure Treasure or Beautiful Amulet, can't pick.
>>Maria's songs are about flames, fire, and wanting to fly
It's a shame she wasn't given a sword and board, could have gone full paladin with that motif.
>asking people to bully gears
I know exactly how to bully Bikki, but I would never dare say it.
Shirabe, you just put your hand on her head the whole time you're in the room with her.
Kirika, stand between her and Shirabe.
Itaba, do anime tropes. Loving ones, that she couldn't possibly think existed in real life, so she faints from all the blushing.
Give her some credit: she was halfway there.
"Nonke" means no interest in any gay activity or straight. It doesn't mean bi.
>[The person they're in love with just happens to be a girl] is also included here
>ElfxCarol is an exception
The artist is full of shit.
In G, Kirika's second character song was about a letter she wrote to say goodbye back when she thought she was the Fine reincarnation and was shortly going to essentially die and Fine take over.
Afterwards she's extremely embarrassed about it because of the misunderstanding she made and maybe it reminds her of the more dramatic things she did because she thought she was gonna get Fine'd, like hurt her precious Shirabe. Also possibly because the content of the letter was a little mushy for a girl whose favourite word is "death".
I'm not sure it's entirely a joke so much as seeing her cute distress over it?
The joke behind Letter.
Chris was never a hooker. Hookers get paid.
>tsubasa and shirabe's names under the umbrella
I dunno how he saw that being a thing, they've said like two lines of dialogue to each other over the course of two seasons.
Do the names being on any particular side have any importance, like is the dude's name usually on a certain side?
They were zesshou buddies for two seasons.
It's why Maria sacrificed herself to keep the sword occupied.
Decode that and maybe we'll find out.
So it's really the follower that we should be killing.
I know Tsubasa's mentally fucked up, but I don't think she'll do a kid.
Shirabe's like a year younger than Hibiki, and three younger than Tsubasa
Just because old lady Maria treats Kirika and Shirabe like they're her children doesn't mean they're actually children
Most of the time they are 4 years apart, but Shirabe's birthday is before Tsubasa's so it's 3 years for a bit.
Maria is 2-3 years older than her, and Kanade was who knows how many years older.
The leader of the Kazanari household must be strong. What could possibly be stronger than an ungodly union of man and eldritch creature?
The one who made this must have been drunk. Fine was a man sometimes and she fucked women and she probably liked it, she also flirted with Hibiki so it's normal to suppose that she likes everything so she should be in the middle. Kanade is a lesbian because what? Serena the same. Chris gayer than HibiMiku is a joke. Tsubasa being the gayest gear alive doesn't make any sense either. And HibiMiku being straight (and Miku being straighter than Hibiki) is stupid.
Not that extreme but that might actually happen
>synched with Ame no Habakiri, Airgetlamh and Gungnir somewhat
>Kazanari autism and superhuman abilities
>ninja skills taught by Ogawa
>10/10 tall beauty with a great singing voice when she grows up
Wingcat babby will be OP.
Look I realized I cocked it up by not putting in a header but you could at least include the OVA subs in the top pist
GX Zesshoushinai 1
>not even 1 year since Minase Inori's debut in King Records
>already invited for an event in Taiwan
>meanwhile Nana took almost 10 years for her first ever invitation for an event overseas
The way people treat newbie VA singers these days are really different from before.
That's a really nice song. The lyrics are really meaningful too.
I know this isn't related to anything in here but here's Shimamura Uzuki's VA from IM@S CG singing Nana's Pray https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6Om507EMZg
>"Zutto mae kara Mizuki Nana-san ga suki de, shouganakutte"
>"Pray wa Joysound-san no live karaoke de zutto Nana-sama ga utau sugata mitsumenagara utaita nanode konkai doushite mo utaitakute onegaishimashita
>I have always liked Mizuki Nana-san so I couldn't help it
>I always sing Pray while looking at Nana-sama's singing figure at Joysound's live karaoke. I wanted to sing it today so I asked for it.
I wonder if Nana even knows who is Ayaka.
Bikki, Chris, Maria and Dess have breasts.
Shirabe is flat but she's a girl since she's not doing manly things.
Tsubasa's chest is close to a man's, and she moves like a manly man that if she didn't have a vagina Fudou would immediately transfer the family's rights to her because she's manlier than the other two that came before her.
Probably, I think he just watched Tsubasa suffer 2 years ago when Kanade died while Tsubasa continued to fight against noise despite having depression and suicidal thoughts.
In GX, Genjuuro never came out of the ship because "muh commander". If that was Tsubasa she might've broken protocol because she doesn't want to stand there all day long doing nothing but look on a huge-ass screen.
Like >>13821472 suggested, I wrote man as in human, not male. Is there something I'm not getting here
because I'm an ESL-fagor are you just being pedantic?
I know, the song is just so powerful than when it got to
I feel like I can take any shit and get away unscathed.
There's no greater encouragement than to hear Nana singing that she'll stay with me even if the world is turning against me. Incidentally, I found her Pray in Live Adventure to be her most powerful performance of the song to date.
Ayaka is the ikemen fangirl in tesagure isn't she.
Nana's songs are magical.
I swear, when you listen to her songs (moreover when you understand the lyrics) its like you can feel her presence beside you telling you something related to the song.
When I listened to Protection a long time ago, which had lyrics saying "You can find something you can do, that's important, and I'll be always be here protecting you" I felt like she was consoling me at that time because I was in a total slump back then.
Not him, but. since I had uploaded them for a friend, have a couple more:
The links are, in order, Kindan no Resistance, Bayonet Charge, Exterminate and Eternal Blaze.
Cheers. Have a doll for no particular reason.
>video of Nana digging holes
Yeah about that. I'm uploading it now. Along with HEAVEN KNOWS, Avalon no Oukan from Live Adventure and Ooi Ni Utau 2 from The Museum 2.
My internet is shit so I'll probably post the link here in the next 5 hours.
Agreed, ripping is the easy and painless part. Finding a good way to encode it that isn't bloat nor streaming quality is the real hassle, especially if you're in the same boat as Nana.
Im pretty sure Tsubasa was probably annoyed by the fact Phara called her Sword-Girl and didn't use her surname
Apparently, there're some detailed information about HibiMiku's room in the staff book.
I think someone here was going to snag it, unless their mapledollars became too worthless to afford it. Consider me intrigued.
Here we go. Pray. HEAVEN KNOWS, Avalon no Oukan, and the ending credit from Live Adventure. And all three of Ooi Ni Utau that has been released to disc.
I'm not done with uploading stuff, I plan to add ROCKBOUND NEIGHBORS extra, the Heian Jingu Hounou Kouen special live tomorrow. It will be on the same folder.
Also, with the exception of Live Adventure stuff and Ooi Ni Utau 1, I ripped all of them from the DVD using Handbrake. Just want to warn you guys that it isn't in HD because I don't have PC blu-ray reader.
I'm bored, so have Chinese weebs reacting to Symphogear S1:
>This shit's raw?
>I'm here to hear Nana sing

>What exactly is so important about these two again
>Who cares we have Sawashiro
>I don't understand a word of what they're saying but somehow this show still makes sense
>"Zwei Wing"... definitely Macross Frontier ripoff
>Idol anime definitely
>At least we'll hear Nana sing now, probably

>Goddesses of music
>I'm getting goosebumps!
>Conan has a great voice
>This is some alien technology right there
>Definitely same universe as Macross Frontier
>I'm pretty sure we have the technology for this IRL
>Nobody would ever fund that
>Wait, if it's day the glowsticks won't work anymore
>The crowd is so loud
>How can you still see glow sticks during the day...
>This song is awesome
>I got scammed! My glowsticks are useless now =L=

Did they have any idea how good of a girl they were killing off?
I'll be able to grab two of the design works and staff book if Amazon/Paypal don't screw me over in the next few days.
Kanade was a waste of a good character design.
Kanade was a waste of a fantastic character design, an amazing singing voice, and a fun personality.
I will never not be sore over them killing her off forever in episode one.

My guess is they're talking about how she went from a rabid, revenge-fueled psychopath who wanted nothing more than to murder the shit out of noise to a calmer, nee-chan/senpai character by exposure to Tsubasa, and learned to fight for others rather than herself. It's not much, but it's better than all of FIS, and around on-par with S1 Hibiki and Tsubasa.
A fine line of fishing rods, 10/10 would walk 15 miles both ways through the snow for.
Maybe if we're lucky it'll end up in a less shitty crossover someday
Maria's arc is about admitting your faults and how destructive it can be to try to be something you're not. People get hung up on "muh weakness is strength" but it's about her compassion, not being weak; and how that compassion is the source of her strength.
>It's not much, but it's better than all of FIS, and around on-par with S1 Hibiki and Tsubasa.
That stuff amounts to a single page of writing at best. Maria's overall development, while less extreme and ultimately leading to a very flawed life lesson, is considerably more complex and developed than that, and comparing her to, say, Flight Feathers Tsubasa is at best biased and seeing things where they actually aren't, and at worst a crime.
>most of the character arcs are so bad that they're overshadowed by one that happens mostly off-screen
I'm curious /m/, why do you like this show?
I disagree with them, but I also no longer like the show anywhere near as much as I once did. To me, it's clear at this point that Kaneko is not at all the writer he was touted to be, and the show limits itself so much both in the serious segments and in the SoL ones (just why do the Zesshoushinai have to be limited by canonical timeframes so much?) that I eventually just stopped caring as much.
I loved S1 and G because the music in the action scenes, the hype scenes, the likeable characters and in G I liked the "lulz" villain that was Ver. I also like HibiMiku but it wasn't one of the main reasons to like the show.
Almost all of Chris's character development happened on-screen, it just wasn't laid-out as obviously as possible(it was still pretty obvious, mind you, but they never spelled it out)
We see her reaction to certain situations that change her.
>When Hibiki saves her the first time despite the fact she considered Hibiki 100% her enemy at that point
>When the girl she believes was being bullied actually steps in to help the person who was "bullying" her
>Miku helping her even though she was a complete stranger
>Hibiki helping her once again and she actually returning the favor and helping Hibiki back
>Genjuro being nice to her and treating her like an actual child
At each of those character points, we see Chris feeling conflicted or confused. When she asks herself why she helped Hibiki even though they were enemies not long before that is an example.
All of those things made her mellow out with time, which culminated into her accepting Hibiki's hand-holding and trusting on the other 2 to protect her while she charges her geahs Phonic Gain output. By the end, she is even willing to sacrifice herself to save a world that she thought could only be saved through violence
It wasn't handled flawlessly, but it was pretty good to be honest.
And this is just S1. G also has some decent character moments for our mistress of fluff and softness. GX has her barely talking to anything and worrying way too much about something that doesn't matter.
I never said anything about Kanade's development being better than Chris'. Chris' S1 development is bar-none the best character development in the series, and I wouldn't dream of arguing otherwise.
I watched the show initially because I saw pic related. Didn't know anything else about it going in, and I was pleasantly surprised. Loved the music and the entire first season was very enjoyable to watch. It's not exactly good writing but it sure kept me invested.
Technically they are ninjas, but they also transform and shit.
Now that I read the post again, I realized I just went on a hugely autistic fit, I thought that when >>13823167(which I presume was you) said >It also happened off screen
I thought he was referring to Chris's development for whatever reason.
Well, at least I gave my 2 cents on Chris's development. Again.
Sorry for misrepresenting your position
>Ikaruga and Tsubasa going ballistic over honor and duty
>Tsubasa helping Ikaruga come up with her brother's new song for another singing contest.
>Katsuragi harrassing Chris, Chris blushing like mad
>Chris and Asuka symphatizing with each other.
>Hibiki trying to cheer Hibari up with Heiki Hecchara and whatnot
>Hibiki trying to befriend Yagyu
>Kirika and Yomi having a bizarre discussion about how their voices are really similar, then shifting it to inane shit about moyashis and supermarket sales
>Maria being bullied by Haruka
>Jii and Hikage discussing something without breaking monotone even once
It pratically writes itself. Believe it or not, 2div->Hanzo and FIS->Hebijoshi wasn't done on purpose before adressing Shirabe.
Answer would always be yes.
Why overpower them when you can tame and make them your slaves instead? By the time Haruka is done with her, those octocat's tentacle no longer belong to Maria.
I said geahs. Although Miku is normally included in that, so yeah, I messed up.
Thinking about it, it would be kinda funny to have Hibiki feeling like she can get along with Hibari really well without being able to explain it, making Miku jealous.
Miku's reaction when Hibiki says Hibari is just like her could also be quite funny.
Nah, it's fine. You at least got the message out there for people doubting Chris' development. Chris is a good girl, so it's not a big deal.
I'm not sure entirely how that hair works but I like it.
Is the Bancho any good?
Yagyu because Iguchi shenanigans
Although Miku is so friendly I don't think there are any girls she wouldn't be able to get along with.
Yumi could result in funny jokes if she looked at one of them, thought she was really cute and decided to pursue her for pointers
>Chris is a good girl, so it's not a big deal.
Chris is love, Chris is life.
Not really, he is a joke character through and through and his role is quite minor, as noted by himself. All he really has is a gag that has the kanji on his shirt represent what he is feeling.
I remember laughing much harder at Shirou, the chestnut-haired kid in the school uniform.
Yeah, idk why Asians use "science" as net slang - basically when something ridiculous happens they would comment things like "This isn't science" "Science can't explain this" "Totally unscientific" or anything along those lines.
>new Carol song
>not Beef Stroganoff IGNITE
It's completely legit.
>not Beef Stroganoff IGNITE
>Expecting beef Stroganoff IGNITE
How would that even work? Replacing Terashima's voice with her singing in her bitchy voice from when she tried to escape Garie?
On second though, I'd like to see that
>Replacing Terashima's voice with her singing in her bitchy voice from when she tried to escape Garie?
And we return to form.
The fact that they animated new stuff in episode 10 and they've skimped out on fixing in-betweens at all, it's not too unlikely that they fleshed it out a little more. I don't expect a rewrite but maybe shootingatshields/webm will be done away with.
Watch the end of the Flashy vs Zenbu fight. There's about 10 seconds of new animation.
How did the bridge not know that FIS was alive after the Chateau exploded? Don't they have life readings of all the Gears? Wouldn't they get a big alert when FIS activated their Ignite modes? Don't they have enough experience to know if you die offscreen you don't really die?
Still waiting on the explanation as to how the fuck the sleepover and London times were meant to work.
It's not much of a sleepover if they're wide awake at 3 am for the start of the concert and have school in the morning at 8.
Hibiki's lewd faces are the best.
I changed my mind, Miku's adoring faces are the best.
>things you only notice after the fact
Oh shit, nice catch.
>that feel when the sunflowershine says you're the best
Let me see if I get this straight:
>Hibiki gets to hold Chris's hands, hug her and princess carry her
>Hibiki gets Miku's undivided love and attention
... Living the Bikki life I guess... Is there any fucking justice in this world?
>Hibiki is Topdad's daughter
She should hold back a little on the hand-holding though. That or start wearing gloves, what is she going to do if one of those girls gets pregnant?
Even dead and not aging, she's still older than Hibiki, Miku, and DMJii, and is the same age as Chris. If we still counted the time, she'd be older than everyone but Maria.
Also Maria loses like five years of maturity in the presence of Tsubasa, so of course she seems young
Not to mention Kanade's cool nee-san powers were enough to reduce Tsubasa to a moeblob, so now that Tsubasa is the cool nee-san, if Kanade were to return no one would be safe.
Good night, anons. Keep her song in your heart and you'll keep her with you, always. Never forget that, and never forget her.
The girls are fun and actually interact with each other outside of fawning over the MC so it's fine.
it's that time again /sgg/, let's see those tags
I figure "2 girls nude" would have suggested yuri but nope.
Took all sorts of time uploading images I thought would get it tagged but they all failed until this. I wonder how it determines at what point an image get yuri.
Automatic tag detection is probably based on an approximation and average of other tags used in certain images, so something beyond simple descriptions like hair, gender, etc, would be much harder to determine.
>that delicious back

Do you think Aoi could found success as a basketball player if she were to stop working as a voice actress?
This is not a place for lewdposting this is /m/
Dude may be trying to get more pics for the image limit but, yeah, this is m/ after all.
What if the new Carol song is just some cute song like the HibiMiku duet that will accompany the last Zesshoushinai, and not some hype GENOCIDE carol?
I hope the dolls are background singers in the song. I need my doll fix, man.
