Topdad was entertaining when he was being a huge shitbag. But then they suddenly remembered they were supposed to redeem him, in the most hamfisted way possible. Not even ten minutes after he was filming Carol destroying the city to make a quick buck. With his phone held VERTICALLY.

Not to mention he's half the reason Hibiki spent 80% of GX with her charmpoint glued to a hospital bed. Meanwhile Tsubasa and Maria were attatched by the hip, DMJii had round 2 of the same fucking argument from G, and Chris spent what little screentime she had flipping the fuck out over muh kouhais in the most irrational way possible. And to top it all off Carol's plot and the animation both completely fell apart aglfter episode 6.

GX was shit.

This. This so much. It's like something happened between the first and second half that they decided to change everything at the last second and probably remade all the storyboards.
GX 1-6 = great
GX 7-13 = hamfisted drama with formulaic episodes in order to advertise the songs

Still, I found my favourite single of all three seasons and I'm GENOCIDING almost every day since that day, and tomorrow as well.

>>134033245
Thank you. That's the point I've been trying to make.
Symphogear has had writing issues in every season. To act like GX has somehow more than any of the others is retarded
I think it should be fucking obvious after S1 and G that you don't watch Symphogear for the writing. Yet pèople act like that's something new in GX
>>
>>134033314
The previous seasons at least managed to be consistent wihmth characters and didn't repeat drama that was already solved last season. Previous seasons didn't segregate character's issues into their own episodes. Previous seasons had characters interact with others besides their gay lovers. Previous seasons didn't make Genjuro useless for arbitrary reasons.

Speaking of Genjuro, how the everloving fuck was Genjuro not involved in Daddy Issues: The Season? Is it because he'd make Topdad look like shit since he's a better father figure than that spineless faggot could ever hope to be?
>>
>>134033308
>muh formulaic episodes are bad meme
I still hate this meme. Something isn't bad just because of being formulaic
I still see no problem with the DOTW episodes
Then again, I like a lot of MOTW stuff like 70's Mazinger, KR and Gravion

>>134033314

Earths orbit around the sun is destabilized, danger of crashing into the sun.
By flying into the core of the earth, resisting the urge to melt by pure determination, hibiki punches the core so hard that orbit is restored, while the rest tries to push earth back using overdrives.
>>
>>134033371
True. Previous seasons had other reasons the writing sucked
But the thing is, that in GX the shit writing just took a new form. It's not something that wasn't there previously
>>
>>134033314
>Symphogear has had writing issues in every season.
Yes but none of the previous seasons dropped the ball this hard
>>
>>134033418
And? You don't watch Symphogear for good writing
>>
>>134033314
The difference is that S1 and G had some great fights and hype moments. Sure, a lot of the conflicts were just as retarded, but those conflicts led to a cool fight. In GX they try to make the retarded drama have an emotionally-based payoff instead of action-based, and that's not what people watch Symphogear for, like you said. All the character episodes in the second half would have been fine if we didn't know who was going to win the fight from the beginning.
>>
>>134033380
Monster of the week is one thing. Drama of the week is another, especially where actually important character development is concerned like with Tsubasa. Stuff like that shouldn't be introduced and resolved almost entirely in the same episode. And on top of that, all four of those episodes play out the exact same way.
>>
>>134033416
And it's worse than anything the previous seasons did wrong. Do you disagree?

>>134033431
I watch it because it's a good show. The second half of GX was not good.
>>
>>134033441
>great fights and hype moments
Like GMJii vs Micah? Or GENOCIDE?

>if we didn't know who was going to win the fight
Now this is just crazy talk.
>>
>>134033431
Yeah I watch it for fun, but it happens that after those sweet and fun first six episodes everything becomes no fun and ruins all the fun I had till this point.
>>
>>134033458
Yes, I disagree.. I was still able to enjoy all of GX like I enjoyed previous seasons
>>
>>134033491
Carol's singing was great but beamspam and punching barriers on a loop was hardly hype.
>>
>>134033514
I'm so sorry.
>>
>>134033516
I guess undoing the world wasn't much hype either.
>>
>>134033528
That's the other way around, anon.
>>
>>134033530
What, a bunch of flashy green lights?
The only good part of the second half of GX was Ver. Hopefully his AI can save the next season.
>>
>>134033491
DMJii vs. Micha was great and Chris vs. Leiur is heavily underrated. But yeah, don't even pretend we didn't know the dolls being defeated was all according to keikaku.

It would have been okay if something really unpredictable happened in the finale, but it was way too similar to S1's finale and there was barely any actual fighting. Death roomba and Tsubasa docking with Maria were great but not enough to compensate for the lack of a serious battle.
>>
So is this the new Teekyuu at this point?
>>
One thing I fucking hated from the bottom of my heart was the need that the staff felt to add being out of breath and all that other fake shit while singing, S1 and S2 didn't have it and I'm sure as hell they didn't needed it.
>>
>>134033528
Why are you sorry about the fact I had fun and could enjoy something?
If it's for my shit taste. I already know I have shit taste. But I can't do nothing about it. The more anime I watch, the shittier my taste gets
>>
>>134033530
The consequences of undoing the world were never even mentioned again. Don't get me wrong, I loved episode 11, but episode 12 and 13 dropped the ball really hard.
>>
>>134033597
What season is that at by now?
>>
>>134033600
That was awesome though.
>>
>>134033593
Those fights were decent but the episodes surrounding them were fucking trash. Especially episode 10 and you would think I'd be biased towards it since it focuses on best geah and best doll.
>>
>no training montage

It's shit.
>>
>>134033600
Now that is truly shit taste.
>>
>>134033600
Your opinion is literally wrong.
>>
>>134033573
>What, a bunch of flashy green lights?
Now you're just shitposting. You can pull the same shit with hype scenes from previous seasons.
>>
>>134033600
>S1 and S2 didn't have it
But they did. Listen to Hibiki's singing in episode 1 of G versus her singing on the CD version. Especially the line when she punches the train.
>>
>>134033618
The first episodes were great since they just cut the singing to breath or talk but then they started adding retarded shit

>>
Beamspam was the worst.
>>
>>134033628
Yeah, especially because the formula had been established and I kept thinking to myself "this is happening AGAIN?" When the results of the fight are a foregone conclusion it kills some of the hype.
>>
>>134033651
Sorry I don't get what's so exciting about a standard doomsday machine that amounted to nothing. You know what's hype? Well coreographed fights. Too bad all their animators died after the beach episode.

>>134033695
Like the final fight against Fine? Oh wait
>>
>>134032794
> S3 was really fucking good I'd be surprised if they could top that.
GX was fucking trash. They didn't learn from their mistakes from G and somehow ended up making GX worse.

>>134033721
And yet you're still gonna watch S4 and whine about it.
>>
>>134033715
Are you retarded?
>>
>>134033715
Tsubasa vs. Fine was awesome. As for the final fight, everyone vs. the Fine dragon, it was still much more interesting than Glorious Break because they had to use tactics.
>>
>>134033715
Did you not watch Tsubasa's fight with Fine literally the episode before? And the last episode of S1 was by far better animated than the last episode of GX and both were half filled with blowing up random noise. At least the roomba was funny.
>>
>>134033732
I'm gonna watch S4 and pray they learned from their mostakes because they've shown that they can do so much better.
>>
>>134033767
Mistakes*
That's an ironic typo to make
>>
>>134033721
It's the opposite, they tried to compensate for the randomness in G and ended up going too far the other way. At the end of the day they need to recognize that Kaneko can't do character drama competently enough to drive the whole plot of a season.
>>
>>134033732
Yeah I'll probably still end up watching it for Chris.

There's a simple solution to that. Have Kaneko draft the overarching story, plot points, and themes; and our hero director-san can fine-tune it all out so we get lots of Miku screentime and acceptable execution.

Miku was always a side character. Was she ever in the main promotional posters? No. She's just a complement to Hibiki's character. The MCs are the 3 and now the 6 gears.

She was, in both S1 and G. Check the official sites of those two. She isn't in GX poster, though.
Miku's always been that character who wanders in the interval between main and side character zones.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I love Miku and I'd welcome more screen time for her with open arms. I just can't really agree when somebody says she "became" a side character in GX as if she wasn't one from the start already. Honorary gear is probably a good way to describe her. Not quite a main character but clearly above most of the other side characters.
>>
>>134035051
The GX hype and early season threads were still decent. Then they started to slowly get worse and worse, then the Maria episode air and suddenly people decided they would spend the rest of the season thinking of every single reason they could imagine why GX was bad, and it never stopped getting worse from there. Judging by this thread some people are still on that pace, which is not only annoying but also kind of sad.

Okay, my predictions were off and GX was a dud. That just means the kissu is GUARANTEED to be in S4. The only question is if it's a sub plot or a final episode thriller. I'm personally holding out hope for a deciding their future is each other finale kissu.

At least we can all agree that Elements Garden is still at their prime. Some of the best songs in the franchise come from GX.
>>
>>134035537
GX had some pretty disappointing songs too, though. The main trio's singles were pretty underwhelming. Chris' songs were a fucking joke compared to previous seasons.

G-beat and BEYOND THE BLADE were top tier. It was just Chris' song.
>>
>>134035609
No season has only great songs. Also, Chris's first song in GX is much better than her first song in G, and Houkago Keyholder is not bad at all, certainly not a "joke". In general I think GX is considerably superior to G in terms of songs.
>>
So. Volume 3, according to stalker, rests at 9.2k on release. Volume 4 is projected at 8079 on release. Volume 5 is 7893, and volume 6 is 8243. Shit's crazy.

>>134035609
GX also had a fuckload of songs, especially if you consider the IGNITED versions which didn't take as much effort as a new song but couldn't have been written for free. The ratio of good songs to bad songs was probably higher in GX than previous seasons. And the unused songs on the character discs were unusually high in quality as well.

Everything else aside, at least we can all agree that dolls in season 3 were a billion times better secondary villains than the idiots in season 2 or the slut in season 1, right?

>>134036457
Everything what?
The main plot? Typical and badly executed.
The fighting and animation quality? Fuck no.
The new characters? Literal dolls meaninglessly dying.
The side plots include main character suddenly losing the development they got in the previous season

It was shit, but the OST was nice at least.

>>134036609
The first half in my opinion is much better than the second half, though, I'm not gonna argue with you.
>>
>>134036786
The animation didn't start shitting itself until episode 7.
GX1 had the best visuals of any Symphogear episode and fights in 2 and 6 were pretty good as well.
>>
Anyone else think that Symphogear threads make you enjoy the anime less and less?

It was fine for the first season but since it got more popular a lot of bickering and shit in the threads just make me enjoy the anime less.

Definitely going to have to stay away if we get a 4th season.
>>
>>134036835
It should never start shitting itself when the series was mediocre up to that point.
I love ep 1 and 6 too but the animation was nothing special.
At least G had several god tier episodes before shitting itself.
>>
>>134036869
I dropped the threads mid GX. Probably gonna drop them sometime during the next season too.

G had episode 1 and episode 10 (which is majorly overrated), the rest is all pretty leveled, and not at a very high level too. G is a VERY weak season even when compared to GX which is riddled with flaws.

Drama worked fine with the main cast Chris's arc in particular in S1-G. DMJII are fucking absolute trash as characters regardless about how you feel about their design/personality's.

>>
>>134039708
Yeah the intro was great, not as good as Chris's second song in season one's intro though.

I think G songs are the weakest by far. I've already forgotten what the final attack was, and the only songs I recall liking are hibiki's song, shenshoujing, and DMJii's duet.

There is no major flaws in S1's writing, the word you are look for is cliche because it reads exactly like an RPG. Had mediocre animation but they put a ton of work into choreography and detail like how Chris arrows actually curve when fired. Not a single person called that Fine wanted to blow up the moon with an ion cannon to fuck god, I was there.

G didn't know what the fuck it wanted to do with FIS with the plot barley holding together but at least we got good character arcs like Chris. With a bit cleaner animation(until the last arc) and about as many as cool individual moments as S1.

GX was utter indefensible shit. All the character drama was contrived, Dainsleif was a complete let down, and Carol was a villain so pathetically bad I'm amazed Topdad wasn't behind it all. Animation went to complete shit with absolutely no attempt as battle choreography rather just replaced with intensity lines. No tension at all because the dolls were always went to win and then loose on purpose which became apparent to anyone with a brain in episode 7. Characters never spoke to each other for more than 5 seconds and instead tread on old drama just for the sake of it. Genjuro was knocked out by an explosion just so that retard Elf9 could get hurt to attempt to make us feel bad.

I could write a book on why the entire Dad plot line was one of the worst in fiction period but you can just look at an interview where main director asks Kaneko and I quote "with a bitter smile, is this really what you wanted to do?".

That means absolutely nothing. Nothing is original in writing anymore, and execution coupled with how well the writing can draw empathy from the audience is what matters. The execution on Chris's character was very well done in season 1.

Season 1 Chris was the best developed in the series.

What that guy posted has nothing to do with your little freak out over people not hating GX as much as you. The fact is, it's always the haters who overreact to any argument over the quality of GX and fuck up the threads because they seem to take huge offense that people like GX. Enough so that they feel the need to incite general shit flinging every time somebody makes some positive common about ANY aspect of GX that's not a song they like. It's literally as if they were saying "if we can't have everybody agreeing that every single aspect of GX is shit then nobody can have the thread for anything else".

I bet you haven't seen Zoid's meltdown and the way he snapped at the Western fanbase a few months ago. As much as I dislike the "GX sucks! / GX doesn't suck as much as you think! / GX sucks far more than YOU think!" shitposting, the people defending it have always had fewer arguments. Not that there should be any need to argue the reason why you like something, as each person has their preferences, but that doesn't invalidate the arguments of the people who disliked GX either.

>>134041297
Yep, it was decidedly average and did too few things out of the ordinary outside of the general mecha musume theme. G, while inconsistent and with a shit finale, had a higher peak.

I do consider S1 to be the best, but after several rewatches, I don't consider G to be anywhere near as shit as I once did.

They change a lot every single season because they always listen to fan complaints. It's just that their changes don't always work out for the better, and scheduling issues always seem to crop up and twist things. Apparently a lot of GX's unexciting finale was the result of production issues earlier down the pipeline.

I'm sure the creators are just as aware as we are of what went wrong with GX.

Fuck zoid, he's just one irrelevant guy and he's not the one actively ruining the threads. I couldn't give less of a shit for his arrogance and attentionwhoring.

I never said anything about the arguments people use, that's not even the issue. It's like you said, this shouldn't be something people got so hung up on to begin with. The core of the problem remains that some people just can't stop shoving their aggressive arguments about why GX was bad in every single thread and flaming up the moods of everybody making a fun thread impracticable.

You can't convince people they shouldn't be having fun watching their anime with arguments, that's retarded.

DMJii's episode was good enough that it's worth excluding from that pile of junk. Their issue was never big to begin with, and while it started in G, Shirabe's temporary death put it on hold.

You mean the show that wasn't always about heiki hecchara sunshine that had a premise founded in characters with tragic pasts coming together and helping each other overcome said trauma had a dark atmosphere? How the hell is that bad?

>Fine being Ryouko was predictable
After the blood on the suitcase where they spelled it out for the audience? Sure. That's called dramatic irony. The idea being that the viewer knows something the characters don't. That's not a flaw, that's a very basic literary device.

>her goal was ridiculous
It was novel and entertaining, and she never lost her motivation and drive.

Hibiki is annoying in general. I won't argue that.

It didn't even feel like a continuation of G outside of the increased focus on the FIS girls, and even then they were mishandled (Maria has been relegated to being Tsubasa's bitch while having some (unwarranted) occasional MC-esque fighting moments, while DMJii still have very little development outside of their interactions with one another).

I definitely like the FIS girls far more than Hibiki or Tsubasa, but GX didn't do much good for them, and that's the only "final round of G"-esque thing that was done in GX.

You're right, the director and staff have had struggles with Kaneko and his creative process since G, and there was a huge fan backlash in the season that Kaneko had full control, but it must be the director that doesn't get things.

Let's forget the fact that the original question was "Did the director acknowledge that Kaneko ran the series into the ground." and you're now falling back on "Well despite him saying that, he doesn't really understand the series anyway."

Try having a discussion without moving goalposts.
>>
>>134042166
Hibiki being KO'd again was entirely realistic, as she was utter horseshit in combat in GX due to her mental state and couldn't even rely on her asspull powerup (the only thing that makes her stronger than Chris, Tsubasa and Maria according to Kaneko) for that specific moment.

The argument being pointless doesn't stop it from being a plausible one. If you want deep, thoughtful conflicts that only happen to deep, complex people, then there are better shows for that, because that's not what Symphogear's ever been targeting.
