ZETTAI NI YURUSENAI
She's so perfect. Why don't people like her?
I don't know why, but I always get a massive boner when I see her. Maybe it's because of her
Give me a reason why you aren't rewatching Hanasaku Iroha RIGHT NOW
Is there an episode title more iconic than this in the whole of Japanese animation?
I don't think so.
Why is Casca so violent?
What new weapon do you think they'll introduce in AXZ?
They haven't had an axe yet and there's not that many named axes, so they could do something like Parashu or the Axe of Perun. It'd make for an interesting armor and musical combination.
Also general Symphogear thread
An axe or a hammer would be neat. Preferably wielded by Miku or an enemy illuminatigeah.
The voice of Mikasa.
Anon who ordered the artbook and manga vol 3 a few weeks ago, if you're here, did you get the clear file?
Also, lets talk about how perfectly lewd Hinako's body is.
The anime version is perfect. It looks like she's been upgraded compared to her manga self.
what is it /a/??
What a fucking slut.
>never watched or read anything GitS related

Should I start GitS somewhere else?
Did I just get memed?
Am I retarded?
GITS in general has really dense storytelling, but the manga is especially bad about it since it's this huge clusterfuck of footnotes every page that are only tangentially related to the actual story. You might want to go watch the 1995 movie and/or the Stand Alone Complex series (both different continuities form the manga) and then come back to the manga to see where some of the ideas in those came from.
Manga is a mixed bag. It is somewhat chaotic and not particularly serious at the beginning. But themes gradually become more serious, and Shirow's art improves.
That being said, when you say "GitS", most people think of the 1995 movie. It's considered an essential piece of cyberpunk media, and influenced a lot of stuff. However, it's quite a lot different from the manga. In my personal opinion, it takes the most interesting elements from the source and makes something better with it. However, manga fans don't like it since the overall theme is much more serious and dark.
In any case, this film is probably what you should see first, and everything else is optional.
There are several continuities:
1. Manga, with most stuff after the first series being quite weird and convoluted as Shirow succumbs to his oiled thin girls with small tits fetish;
2. GitS films 1 and 2, with the second being quite a lot different from the first;
3. SAC series and film, which are considered pretty decent for most part, but being more like a buddy-cop thing;
4. Arise, which while is not complete shit, doesn't exactly stand close to the '95 film or SAC;
