They still won't fix this an all the bad animation leading up to it though.
There is nothing that German Suplexes can't improve.
Except Zangief's Super in SFV which makes no sense and is his worst super ever. Though it has half as many German Suplexes as FAB.
I feel bad for Maria if anyone happened to record that
Well, they took over every broadcast on earth, so anyone that had their DVR running or capture card going got that.
So yes, Maria is worth nothing in japan as a solo idol because she's been seen naked. Literally worse than Aya Hirano.
She's just trying to figure things out, alright? Give her some slack.
I'm feeling brave and horny. The mouth is mine.
I hope you've been practicing how to break the laws of physics.

Just add a big "CRUNCH" sound after the final panel.
The US did the Echelon backtrace over TCP/IP and deleted all the soft and hard RAM files that were created during the timeframe of that broadcast.

I like when the sword doesn't get her way.
You had me confused with the tentacle bit, then I realized I was in a different tab than I originally believed and thus had the wrong Maria.
I feel the same way about both Marias.
You think she checks Hibiki's cellphone for messages about
I can only imagine what:"I am going to Chris-chan's house to ask for help in my homework" actually means.
Miku deserves better
More school life screentime, because that means more hibumiku
I want all of these at the same time.
Was re-watching some of the Doll fights in order to see how to organize Doll Models and modules for the Symphbattle book, and just saw that Micha has rocket claws, how did I missed that, that earns her more points as best doll .
- Tsubasa and Maria have docking sword drill
- Shirabe and Kirika have UFO cleaner of DESS
Chris and Hibiki need their own combination attack, but what would it be?
Poor Hibiki, being used as essentially a living gun tripod.
Oh what I'd give to take Hibiki's place
>You will never be as popular as Chris
seriously though FIgma fuckign when
yeah thats why I'm surprised I managed to miss the rocket claw, it was not even a fast frame.
Being a tripod doesn't count as combination even if Hibiki enjoyed it.
If Hibiki enjoyed having her face full of Chris crotch, even if she's Miku's friend, she would be at minimum hospitalized.
more dead parents
I'd fucking kill for them to finally release that SRC Big O or Godannar they showed off a while back. Or El Dorado V.
At least they're finally releasing the Giant Robo they showed at the same time as Big O, even if it costs almost $100.
I always found ultra lazy that they obscured their faces in the flashbacks
She didn't forget their names, she doesn't call them by name. Just like she calls everyone else come to think of it.
Anyways I doubt you always call your parents by their first name.
Given that it seems to be attached to a tether of some kind, I'd classify it more as a grapple claw than a rocket claw.
Still an awesome little detail I missed the first time too.
Nah it still counts as a rocket claw, the method of return is just different
That one might be more difficult since it's been proven there are more profitable characters now.
Also more best girls.
With all this talk about the names of Chris' parent's names. I wonder if Chris was ever called by her name while she was in Val Verde or if she was just called "Slave","whore" and "bitch".'
They've only added 2 since launch unless you count all Saberfaces in which case that's 4.
Meanwhile Shishou caused the biggest spike in profits in the game's entire run by miles. Though Brynhildr might manage to come close to that, I'm not sure how popular she's going to end up being.
>They've only added 2 since launch unless you count all Saberfaces in which case that's 4.
Saber, Saber Alter, Saber Lily
Nero, Jeanne and Jeanne Alter
Santa Alter, Tits Saber Alter
Modred, Okita, MHX and MHZ
Nero Rider, Nero Bridge, Tits Saber and Grand Saber
Thats a little more than 2 and 4
Since launch. They had 5 on launch, yes. The "added" Arturias are Santa and MHX. All the Saberfaces added are those plus Okita and Mordred. Z is just a palette swap for a boss and they didn't even try to hide it. She doesn't even have her own entry in the Servants page.
Jeanne Alter hasn't been added yet and I don't know if there's any confirmation that Grand Saber will be Arturia (it probably WILL be but the Grand Servants haven't had any info leaked).
Tits I wouldn't count since she doesn't have Saberface. She's got manface.
Regardless, Saberfaces are just a part of the franchise but I don't think that guarantees they're going to be the big movers. In this case specifically a figure company would probably make the most money from a Shishou figure.
I don't know if there are any concrete figures but DW specifically noted that Scathach's single week in the Gacha made the most money out of the game's entire run and most of the other Saberfaces have had a rate up.
Then again they've announced Mashu, Okita, Nendo Jeanne, Penguin Arturia and
Ushiwakamarufigures first so maybe the Japanese market makes no sense.
I haven't seen any leak for Grand Servant voices. Besides, there's a lot of voice actor overlap and Nakata voiced half of Solomon.
From a lore perspective it both would make sense and would not make sense since Grand Servants are meant to be the best of the best of the best of their classes but I can't see a reason why Arturia would be an enemy again unless they want a third form of Alter.
She also voices Anne Bonny.

Maybe Puchi Nendoroids of Petit Milady.
Remind me, did Hibiki regrow her arm because berserk or because fused relic?
If the former than Dainsleif is extremely hax
The berserk is a side effect of the fusion. One of the keywords for season 1 stated that Fine would have been affected by the amplified emotional components as well when she fused with Nehushtan if she hadn't had centuries of honing her willpower through her reincarnations.
Don't mislead the poor man.
Gravity is also probably the least vanilla thing I've written. Visiting Hours is a lot more vanilla, but it's still futa. Unfortunately, I think most of the /m/ writefags tend to put some level of sadomasochism into HibiMiku, even if it's light. Try the /u/ threads?
Why are the OVAs so much better than the show? Why didn't this stuff happen in the show?
This scene made me cry a little.
No, I have no problem with twintails Mr Guildy Sir. I don't really understand why she's pretending to be a fish or something. Swapping the two legs with two twintails? Just... because?
If anyone cares, the new Smash DLC just dropped and Fem!Corrin is about the closest thing we're gonna get to playable Gears in Smash. She has a pallet that's reddish-pink/purple and black with long pink hair and some of her attacks have a big lance swing Her orange pallet is also mildly reminiscent of Kanade's gungnir
Cu is, and will forever remain, in my main lineup.
What's that about Luck?
Ironically the 3 Servants I really really wanted I didn't get. Also his NP is still only level 3. Even Babbage somehow maxed out NP before my main man.
For some reason as much as I love Protection From Arrows and Hassan's Protection From Wind I don't use her much even though she has a skill that does the exact same thing.
It's because Martha's my Rider and she's the best and hopefully will get an Interlude to give her a third skill as well as switch her fighting animations to fistfightan.
What's the crackest thing you pull for in this series?
TsubaChris.Or Maria/Chris; that one's become a recent favorite.
Didn't they also do some stupid stuff with Xenoblade? Like changing "doll" to "skrull" or whatever the fuck for no particular reason?
The censoring of a 13-year-old wearing a skimpy bikini is understandable for the US market, though.
Scans for two Symphogear doujins soon.
I posted the wrong image
I did. I'm still waiting on scans of the new Chris-chan and friends book to come in (or I'll just buy a copy this month in Japan at a doujin shop) so I can TL that, and I also don't usually touch H gear stuff, but Carol a shit and she deserves to have a bunch of faceless men run train on her asshole, so I'm all for translating this one.
The DMJii one looks good but I'm not sure about Carol.
> scans of the new Chris-chan and friends
Any chance you're talking about this?> Because I'd love scans of this one.
A general probably isn't the place for this, but is it an unpopular opinion to think season 1 of this show was great but season 2/3 were bad?
season 1, despite being a show where the plot happens because a lady literally wants to fuck god, felt like a show that had a pretty solid plot to it and action scenes that actually had something going on beyond being action scenes where the lady sings a pop song while punching things
meanwhile season 2/3 felt very, for a lack of a better word, market friendly. Just shove a bunch of new characters in there, repeat a lot of stuff we already did and don't worry that the main characters are sort of flat because they already got developed because we have half a dozen new characters that we have to try and develop all at the same time while also having More Epic Action Scenes
probably the best example I can think of is that in season 1 hibki going nuts was something that was built up subtly the entire show and it's a pretty shocking moment because of it
meanwhile in season 2 she gets her arm eaten off and goes nuts again but then that's all resolved like 10 minutes into the next episode and nobody really cares after that
>but is it an unpopular opinion to think season 1 of this show was great but season 2/3 were bad?
No, not at all. That's pretty much standard, with people's opinions on G ranging from "it had it's ups and downs" to "it was bad, but not GX bad".
>meanwhile in season 2 she gets her arm eaten off and goes nuts again but then that's all resolved like 10 minutes into the next episode and nobody really cares after that
I really hated that scene, because of how trivial it made the fight. They could have made it a more permanent thing, and have her regrow it later, on Frontier, instead of just right away to demonstrate the relic cancer some more.
We got Hibiki going Eva 2.0 out of it so it worked out.
Though it seems I don't have any webms of the actual regeneration, so take this one from just before that instead.
>meanwhile in season 2 she gets her arm eaten off and goes nuts again but then that's all resolved like 10 minutes into the next episode and nobody really cares after that
I really wanted that to be a permanent thing just to give her a cool robot arm
I'm going to bet I wasn't the only one who wanted that right?
My sword is ready for battle.
Yeah, the novelty quickly wears off and then it just gets annoying when they try to constantly shoehorn in cliffhangers.
G's saving grace was that it had some funny SoL, great fight animation and Kyoushitu Monochrome. The rest, not so much.
That's most people's opinions. I'm one of the guys who thinks G was good and fun but it's still pretty obvious that they were winging it and GX was a rough draft that never got edited. Also after GX episode 1 this everyone's seconf favorite episode right.
S1 is the best season all around, G had the best action and better songs, GX had some good ideas that were never fully realized, and some good songs.
I figure that's the best way to rationally treat the seasons in relation to each other.
>G had ... better songs
I agree, but still.I have a hard time really ranking the seasons on a whole for songs though. Each season had it's highs and lows, musically.
S1 had Zettou Ame no Habakiri, Kimi to Iu, and ZENBU, but then it also had Watashi to Iu, Flight Feathers, and Hidamari Memoria.
G had Ressou Gungnir, Rainbow Flower, and Waikyou Shensou Jing, but also had Okyou Shul Shagana, Dark Oblivion, and Kaban no Kakushigoto.
GX had Ginwan Airgetlamh, Genocide, and Little Miracle, but also had Trust Heart, Just Loving X-Edge, and Little Miracle.
And I'm certain someone's gonna come at me with some >implying reply, and that's fine, because musical taste is one of the most subjective things on the planet.
I also really enjoyed G because I really enjoyed Maria's character arc and progression, even if it wasn't handled great.
You're right. With how important songs are to Symphogear, of course opinions will be split.
I'm sure it's objective that they fucked up reusing Hajimari no Babel though.
>A general probably isn't the place for this, but is it an unpopular opinion to think season 1 of this show was great but season 2/3 were bad?
No, I'm of the opinion that they blew their emotional load in Season 1 and now they're playing catch-up
>GX hints that PLOT will take place in Europe
>Maria and Tsubasa are the main characters now, because they're adults who live in Europe and while everyone else has school and gets minimal screentime
>Occasionally we go back to Japan to see how topdad is doing
Let me give you hope for S4 so that you can be disappointed with me. Kaneko is so disillusioned with his shitty writing that he probably thinks that all the girls are fully developed now.Which means Elfnein will take center stage when it comes to development so we'll have things like everybody taking her to parks, festivals, concerts, and other things so that she can have a normal life.
When it comes to villain songs I can't decide whether "I like my gay love for Hibiki is literally powering a ship destroying laser" or GENOCIDEGENOCIDEGENOCIDE better
SENKOU played for the best fight in G while GENOCIDO AND GENOCIDO was just kinda dropped in for a pretty pointless fight.
No real contest.
(Also the wubs in Shenshou Jing are great, don't hate.)
>SENKOU played for the best fight in G
I dunno man that fight was mostly Chris clowning on Miku until Miku unleashed the lesbian beam.
Hibiki saving Miku was the emotional high point of G (and let's be honest should probably have been the climax considering how impactless the complete Nephilim was), but best fight in G, maybe not.
I think it was the best episode and comparing it to GX's episode 10 is just painful. You can disagree about G's final being good (it was nothing special) but it was far better than GX. At least it didn't fuck anything. Although S1's epilogue was the best one undoubtedly
That reminds me that the Mikufag producer saved Kaneko's ass I'm GX, I hope he isn't an ungrateful bastard and he puts more Miku instead of the shit that we watched in this season's finale
G's finale was pretty much just there so something cool could happen while Nastasha was up in space actually saving the world.
Contrast GX, where they just threw the whole "we need Ignite mode because we can't just rely on a miraculous power boost to save the day" thing out the window so the girls could use the silliest attacks ever. Oh and I guess they were fighting someone too?
>we need Ignite mode because we can't just rely on a miraculous power boost to save the day
The joke is that they totally can
Genjuro just made that assumption because he spends all of his time watching action movies rather than watching Symphogear
G had some flat subplots and character arcs. GX had downright awful ones. I don't like G as much as season 1, but it had enough going for it that I still liked it and loved a few moments.
>Oh and I guess they were fighting someone too?
They were buying time until Hunter-Papa could stop Carol with the power of memories.
Symphogear finales confirmed for never letting the girls actually save the world again.
I just read some of his comments. Apparently Agemetsu had a bunch of cool attacks he designed that he didn't get a chance to use. That's pretty sad.
Kaneko also wants to release a character design book with nothing but details written down about their personalities. He literally wants to turn those shitty keywords he's using in place of actual storytelling into a full blown book.
>Apparently Agemetsu had a bunch of cool attacks he designed that he didn't get a chance to use
What does Agematsu do besides being music producer? Is he the one who comes up with all the ridiculous attacks?
Not keywords necessarily. Just stuff that he as a creator has to the characters that you couldn't bring up in a regular narrative like favorite drinks or random stuff like saying Shirabe likes trains.
>Is he the one who comes up with all the ridiculous attacks?
Apparently. And apparently he puts a lot of thought into the the themes and styles of the attacks.
It's a shame, I'd love to see what else he had cooked up that didn't make it into the show. GX was seriously lacking on cool attacks or uses of existing attacks.
>Not keywords necessarily. Just stuff that he as a creator has to the characters that you couldn't bring up in a regular narrative
But that's what the keywords are. And those have long since moved past that, and moved into "I'm too lazy to tell my story in the story, so I'm going to write a bunch of stuff outside of it."
>like favorite drinks or random stuff like saying Shirabe likes trains.
But a skilled writer could easily work stuff like that into the story.
That's actually a pretty common reaction from my friends who watched Symphogear S1 - Hibiki's backstory was barely given in the first season and a lot of them couldn't like her as a result.
That one was one of the biggest slaps in the face for me. "There's a running joke that this character has a super fucking cool attack that they never got to use, so let's keep running with it by teasing them again. Haha, we're so self aware!" only works as a joke when you're delivering on every other aspect and the audience is already happy. When everything is crappy and then you make a self aware joke about not showing what the audience wants, you're just being a dick.
Optimistic idiot archetype doesn't resonate well with a lot of people. The weebs I know who didn't like it all just couldn't stand Hibiki's personality in season 1. I wonder how they'd react to GX.
What does /sgg/ think about AKB0048?
> a skilled writer
Yeah, that one is a rarity in anime industry. And we also need a skilled episode director, storyboarder, and animation director. Writer alone can only do so much.
>Shirabe likes trains
How would they show it anyway, like showing Shirabe making sad face when Hibiki have to punch train? Or have her babble about the train on her way to school with Kirika?
I think for the former, it would throw off the tempo for action scenes, so latter is more possible.
I liked it.
I WANT YOU
Pretty fucking sweet. And I don't usually bother with aidoruu.
Episode 3 was quite the ride.
>Aidorus with space AK-47s fighting robots
>GX was seriously lacking on cool attacks
>Rakshasa Type Zero
Uh, yeah not seeing the "serious lack." They could always use more cool attacks but don't try to understate all the cool stuff we got in GX.
Yes the animator, actors, and directors were flawless.
That's why we had great scenes like this and used all the new tracks from the OST.
>What mistakes did the directors make other than giving Kaneko free reign
Well, that's the one mistake that screwed up the show right, do you really need other reason to let them share the blame?
There are plenty of skilled production teams, there's no need to pretend they're a complete unicorn.
>How would they show it anyway,
Have a scene where they walk into her room, have some model trains in the background. If you're worried the audience is stupid, have Hibiki say "Boy, you sure like trains!"
It's not hard to do unobtrusive characterization.
This shit happens every season. Kaneko writes with little regard for the amount of work it'd take to adapt his work, and the animators end up struggling to keep up. This is the third season. He really ought to have learned by now.
True. I'm not sure why I made that an exception.
Artemis Spiral and Infinite Crime are the only good ones there. Glorious Break was awful.
G had cool stuff like Chris using megadeath party while jumping and spinning. GX had nothing cool like that.
>Glorious Break was awful.
First two seasons the animators toughed it out and ended up making products that were overall enjoyable with the QUALITY not being distracting.
GX burned through all of the budget in the first episode and the production values steadily declined from there then sharply plummeted after episode 7. They didn't even fix the worst examples of lazy animation in the BDs.
>while nearly all of the staff and cast had some words of appreciation, or a picture to share, Genjurou's actor Ishikawa simply takes up his entire page with the question: "When is season 4?"
SEASON 4 WHEN?
Oh fuck off. The other gears shit laser beams into Hibiki who then made a shitty version of big bang punch and slowly bumped into Carol without even defeating her. Don't let Nana's great singing cloud your memory, the actual attack was shit.
>Sweat flying everywhere with AY screaming at the top of her lunges
>GLORIOUS BREEEAAAAAKKK at the perfect fucking time
It wasn't as good as Synchrogazer but it was infinitely superior to the retardation that was Vitalization.
The attack itself was shit but it still manages to make me hype. I guess it's the combination of the song + everyone screaming.
I still think the whole Captain Planet thing was dumb but still kinda cool at the same time. It's the dumb power of this show I guess.
I'll give you that it looked cool, but I just can't get over the fact that the entire attack completely undermined the main theme of the series - that teaming up, holding hands, and doing things together is what leads to success. The whole Dragon Ball "Let's give our power to Hibiki!" thing was awful. Plus, if I recall correctly, word of god is that the fist in Glorious Break was a truly manifest Armed Gear, which is completely the opposite point of Hibiki's character and power set.
Then again, so was the vast majority of GX.
This is coming from someone who really liked Vitalization, though, so maybe my taste is just shit.
Alright, fair enough. I'll definitely give you that. I liked it more for how much it reinforced the themes of the show than explicitly how it was executed and appeared.
I did like the attack card though.
Again, fair enough. The timing was, well, glorious. It was the only good thing about the attack, though.
>if I recall correctly, word of god is that the fist in Glorious Break was a truly manifest Armed Gear, which is completely the opposite point of Hibiki's character and power set.
After the waterfall scene, Hibiki doesn't mind punching people really hard anymore so it kinds of make sense that she is able to manifest an armed gear now when she really wants to.
There's always a need for puffy geahs.
I think hitting image limit is mostly just a way to encourage people to post stuff that other anons might not have seen yet.
Everybody has a little bit of Miku hidden in them somewhere.
Hibiki has Miku in her every night until 2am
Pic of HibiMiku's room when? I want to see their new love nest.
Man, I'm jelly of the Itabafag who requests in the /a/ drawthread.
>Kaneko also wants to release a character design book with nothing but details written down about their personalities.
What's wrong with this. Having some details about quirks and traits of the characters would be pretty cute.
>Ao-chan intended to draw a picture of Hibiki, but when she finished she said it didn't really convey the feeling of appreciation to the rest of the staff and cast that she wanted. Instead she drew the pairing she supports: Maria and Tsubasa.
Vote Aoi president 2016, she'll make TsubaMari real.
Symphogear has to be stuffed with other things so dropping in little quirks one-off would be token at best. Much better to just have a big paragraph somewhere. I'm sure everyone's favorite scene would be the one where X character says she really likes mountain climbing.
Maybe he'd use it to expand on Serena and HibiMiku history.
Time to fap again i see.
Why does Symphogear have so little fanart
There's actually a lot of Symphogear fanart produced daily - but of course, not anywhere close to what Touhou or Kancolle generates.
Westerners having an overall negative impression of the series also does mean a lot of good stuff doesn't get uploaded to Danbooru.
Also most of it is being published through Twitter right now so you need to follow the artists rather than tags.
If these artists are gonna stay assblasted at Pixiv over whatever the hell happened they could at least post their shit somewhere that's actually possible to browse instead of digging through twitter feeds
The keywords are retarded now, and exposition doesn't mean "two characters sit down to have a conversation for the sole purpose of explaining things to the audience".
It doesn't need to be a big scene stealer though. Remember how a bunch of comics of Tsubasa playing video games with her dad came out? How much screen time got spent establishing that aspect of her past?
>exposition doesn't mean "two characters sit down to have a conversation for the sole purpose of explaining things to the audience".
That is LITERALLY one way of doing exposition, and is a thing Symphogear does at the beginning of every season.
Fuck you, Hibiki's faces are cute.
The word you're looking for is cute
And you're still wrong. Her faces are adorable no matter what.
Tachibana Hibiki is a lovely goofball.
She's MY lovely goofball.
We know, Miku. You don't have to shoot lasers at our dicks.
Oh, I got that, what I mean is that she is draped over someone with fingers interlocked and yet her eyes don't reflect even a hint of lewdness
Ho the hell did she get in that position?
And what are the chances she and
Chris are getting out of this unscathed?
No one can resist the zenbus
Hibiki's just a baka who doesn't realize what she's doing
>>Ao-chan intended to draw a picture of Hibiki, but when she finished she said it didn't really convey the feeling of appreciation to the rest of the staff and cast that she wanted. Instead she drew the pairing she supports: Maria and Tsubasa.
