NANA WILLS IT
2 cour season when?
DMJII kissu when?
Symphogears on the moon when?
I will post this every thread until they dock.
Lolichris gets raped every time you do this.
I just hope they don't get to a point where they feel forced to do it because it sold well and it ends up being terrible.
I mean S3 was really fucking good I'd be surprised if they could top that.
Nothing will beat Carol songs.
Cry more faggots.
No matter how much you try to force your meme GX wasn't worse than S1 and G
I hate how GX being absolute shit became such an ebin meme in Symphogear threads
Well I enjoyed it better than S2 at least, Can't beat the old first season though.
I'm not implying GX is a masterpiece. But to say it's absolute garbage like you fucks do is retarded
Where you saw multiple long winded criticisms, I saw multiple rants fueled by butthurt
First half of gx was the high point of the series. The second half was the low point and honestly would have been complete shit if it weren't for the last action hero, zoids, and genocide
>say it's absolute garbage like you fucks do is retarded
I'm not I'm saying that, I'm saying that S3 is six episodes long and after those comes a seven episodes long fanfiction tier mess sull of waifufaggotry.
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.
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
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?
>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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
>Miku is the side of the side character
>Symphogear Season 4
>Miku only appear s cameo
>We will never see Miku x Hibiki end
She played a quite important role in the first a.k.a the good half of GX and only got sidelined in the second one. There's also the gay duet as well as this announced recently. No way she's gonna become a background character any time soon.
Not really a surprise but fuck yeah.
I wish they had waited till the live to comment on that though. Not it's going to be kind of anticlimactic when they make the big announcement.
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.
All the merchandise having a Miku version makes me believe otherwise.
>Was she ever in the main promotional posters?
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.
It's too late anon, she's already an honorary geah. When Director-san assumes direct control of season 4, you'll see the error of your ways. You'll all see.
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.
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.
Are you ready for topmom to become the main character?
Literally the cutest character in Symphogear.
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.
Sorry mate, that spot is taken.
It's not fanfiction my friend. It's our collective future reality.
They better bring back Christmas Carol and her VA because it's going to be pretty fucking unbearable listening to Elf-9's shrill voice for 12 episodes.
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.
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.
How does one resist bulling this spaghetti creature?
>Symphogear GX is the best selling anime of the summer season in Japan!
Wow, this is just sad to read.
I mean I enjoyed the series and all, but in no way it deserves top sales for any season.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
>It's our collective future reality.
>lot of bickering and shit in the threads
Those are just your standard sales chart shitposters, who go to the respective threads of best/worst selling/exceptionally bombing shows of the seasons. Just don't reply to them, hide their posts and you're set for comfy Symphgay thread.
Oh, there's also this "Hibiki will never love Miku" faggot, but mods usually take care of him.
He's just a shitposter. He also posts "Madoka will never love Homu" and "Yuuna will never love Tougou" in its respective threads at every chance. I don't think he really believes or cares about what he posts as long as he keeps getting replies.
Sadly not, I had to make use of a certain button a few times in the relase thread.
No more Maria wanking onegai please.
>I just hope they don't get to a point where they feel forced to do it because it sold well and it ends up being terrible.
>I mean S3 was really fucking good I'd be surprised if they could top that.
>Each new release sells consistently less
>Not getting any younger, fanbase getting smaller.
>Love Live is basically everywhere, was just included in the top10 best artists of the year.
>fanbase getting smaller
She's starting to get attention overseas though. Lack of sales doesn't mean she has less fans.
But well, she's already saying she'll probably make her Enka debut in 7 years, so I guess she's slowly starting to prepare her career shifting.
Kaneko in G
>I loved all the scenes, but there was this particular scene that I enjoyed, the one with Maria breaking all those American soldiers skulls
Kaneko in GX
>I'm glad I was able to make this and watch Maria's smile (during the concert)
He likes her.
An almost kiss that gets blocked at the last second? Yeah, I can see it happening.
DMJii main characters.
Main trio are senpai-tier side characters.
Maria is mother-tier side character.
New tsun-tsun meganekko rival, transfers into same class as DMJii.
Lower stakes, and a strong school-life focus.
How long for Zesshoushinais to be subbed?
Well that's too bad for you cause this is what's going to happen in S4. The new enemies are going to be girls in armor that makes them look like robots, Hibiki's going to beat the shit out of one and the enemies mask is going to break. Realizing that she hurt a person Hibiki's going to go in the corner and cry Heki heichara until the finale when she gains her resolve back with help from Topdad. Trust me my sister works at the whorehouse that Kaneko regularly visitd.
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. So instead of letting them be cute in the background they try and force conflict for them that is both non existent but also not believable.
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.
No subs needed.
Most intro cards have noise doing/being something.
I'd hate to see a combination of Chris's sloppy eating and Hibiki's ravenous appetite.
And by hate I mean love.
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?".
You think I'm gonna read that long ass shit? Go write a MAL review or something if you're that desperate to prove that people who like what you don't like are wrong.
>You think I'm gonna read that long ass shit?
This is an 18+ website.
>There is no major flaws in S1's writing
the dramatic sacrifices that immediately went on to mean nothing at all were really terrible
>it reads exactly like an RPG
if you think the average RPG has good or even acceptable writing there is something wrong with you
That's rich coming from the autistic faggot who bitches at anyone not buying into their internet debate over objective factual opinions bullshit. I'm sorry some people don't think the same as you, but you're gonna have to get over it some day.
How fucking stupid are you? You started complaining that people don't like a thing you like, and now you're telling someone else that they need to accept that people won't like the same things as them?
Seriously, are you actually retarded?
The common theme I see is that people who hated GX are also Chrisfags. Which means threads would be better without Chrisfags.
I hope you mean FIS songs where underwhelming. All of Shirabes songs were terrible along with their duet, and Kirika's second song was a joke track. Only Maria's battle song is remotely good and regular Radiant Force blows whatever the hell the retard trio sang during that shit episode out of the water.
>The people who hate GX are the fans of the most well written character in the series, and it can be inferred that they have standards when it comes to setting up character redemption and character drama
Who would have thought?
How fucking stupid are YOU? Don't you see yourself? You're trying extremely hard to force your opinions which no one asked about onto people, being extremely and needlessly aggressive and obnoxious about it and when people tell you to keep it down because you're annoying you cry "hurr you just want a hugbox". You my friend must be an actual autist. Of the real kind, not the phony internet kind.
Let me break it down for you:
You told someone to get over the fact that people like something they don't like. You said this after complaining that people didn't like something you liked.
You are an idiot.
was the first post on the topic. Someone got butthurt that most of the thread was shitting on the show and started complaining about anyone who criticized it while telling them to go away. Stop being a hypocrite.
Yes the dolls were one of the few redeeming things. It's too bad they were resigned to their fate of being fodder instead of just doing tower knights.
Animation quality dipped after episode two with it being fully put down due to Chris's swimsuit in episode 7.
Let's hope so, nazi uniforms are the sexiest.
>the most well written character in the series
That would actually be Tsubasa who's character arcs are believable and not forced or redundant.
>S1 edgemode because Kanade kill, learns how to tomodachi with others
>S2 mellowed out because new tomodachi but still autist sword
>S3 character arc comes full circle with her confronting the cause of her autist swordmode and gains Kanade P2 version
S1 in general didn't have great writing. All it has is consistency, and even then that's only because G's very good moments (of which it has far more than S1) are offset by it becoming a general trainwreck after episode 4.
>S2 mellowed out
You mean cut out.
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.
>for not being inconsistent.
You're trying really, really hard to paint it in a negative light.
Season 1 Chris was the best developed in the series.
>S2 mellowed out because new tomodachi but still autist sword
Oh come on, she had as little personality in G as Chris did in GX.
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".
No, they're calling out a chronic shitposter who manages to derail these threads into nitpicking and semantics filled internet debates over their objectively true opinions. It's obnoxious as hell. God forbid people come onto /a/ to have fun lighthearted discussion and banter instead of being insufferable overly serious cunts.

I was calling that guy an idiot. I'm not one of the people who were posting for the first 250 posts of the thread shitting on it. He is an idiot, and I don't care that you want to point fingers at others and say "but they're flinging more shit than I am!"
> The fact is
Learn what fact means.
>makes some positive common about ANY aspect of GX that's not a song they like
Episode 1 is universally loved, as is Ver's redemption. Your hyperbole is pathetic.
Try not being a massive hypocrite crybaby who assumes everyone who disagrees with them is one poster. Your asshurt is annoying.
Her daddy issues were not a regression because it was something she never dealt with. She managed to curb her anger/sadness over Kanade's death but she never was able to deal with her father.
>it's always the haters who overreact to any argument over the quality of GX
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.
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.
>>Shirabe non-combat songs:
Practice mode is the most underrated song.
>SENSE OF DISTANCE
Biggest one I've seen in a while.
>nitpicking because you can't deny the obvious truth
So this is what it has come to. I hope you're very happy with yourself for being a prime collaborator in ruining a potentially enjoyable fanbase in the name of your autism.
>prime collaborator in ruining a potentially enjoyable fanbase
How about I stay right here instead and say things that you don't agree with, such as "I enjoy the overarching themes to GX even though the implementation wasn't perfect". I'll keep saying stuff like that too. Project more, maybe it'll stop me from posting my wrongthink.
>Directly refuting someone's points is now nitpicking
>Actually saying anything of worth instead of just cumming inside each others mouths while smiling is now ruining threads with autism
Serious, can you fuck off back to tumblr or reddit or wherever it is you came from?
Ignore people whining that GX didn't play out like the fanfiction in their head.
Enjoy Maria with twintails.
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.
>s4 intro sequence starts

Yes, I am fucking hyped. Praise Nana and best-Zenbu.
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.
PRAISE BE TO NANA
>fanfiction in their head
>Having standards based on previous seasons is now fanfiction
>I'm sure the creators are just as aware as we are of what went wrong with GX.
Check the interviews. The director is very aware that Kaneko ran it into the ground.
You know Nana has no need for that.
What sacrifices that went on to mean nothing? Kanade died, STRAWBERRY JAM forced Tsubasa to confront her dead girlfriend complex, and Tsubasa and Chris getting downed in the finale set up Hibiki's return from the depths of despair. Take away any one of those and the story it contributed to wouldn't have worked.
The time for pretending is over anon you just look like a fool. I don't understand how a single person defends this shit after post production interview we got. On top of we found out one of Kaneko's parents actually died and he shit all over his original script.
>implying her spirit wouldn't be inhabiting the Gungnir gear her daughter uses and aids her during the fights like a guardian angel of fisticuffs
Yeah, nah, it'd be awesome yo.
If you really want something then here you go
The first half's edgyness was completely out of place compared to the rest of the season, Fine being Ryouko was predictable, her goal was ridiculous, Hibiki was annoying for the majority of the season as was Tsubasa
>subjective opinions can only be based on objective measures
I don't actually have any major issues with S1's plot but it just didn't grip me as much and while I had more issues with G and GX's plot, I liked them much more in general.
>point out out flaws with examples is nitpicking
Nitpicking would imply it was something minor when in reality it had a huge effect on the third season. I don't see how anyone can defend episode 7 and onward aside from Tsubasa's pottery line about wings.
Everyone saw s4 coming, the real surprise will be if it turns out to not be shit. After G and the latter half of GX I've lost all faith in Symphogear being good anymore
unless it permanently switches to Zesshoushinai
Me too. Even with the dumb Chris and Topdad episodes back-to-back it ended up being my favorite, and it had the best music.
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. While they're still not being developed enough as individual characters, that has little to do with the flow and progression of the episode itself, which was at least passable.
We know Zoid.
>The first half's edgyness was completely out of place compared to the rest of the season
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 was annoying for the majority of the season
Hibiki is annoying in general. I won't argue that.
>as was Tsubasa
Any angst she carried was completely justified.
>subjective opinions can only be based on objective measures
Parroting "I liked this thing" but never being able to explain why makes for horrible discussion. What's the point of just saying you like or dislike it over and over again without ever being able to articulate on an idea or feeling you have?
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.
>DMJii's episode was good
Stopped reading right there not only was that the shit episode where Hibiki was knocked out in five seconds again but it was actually melodrama. Their ignite fight was then them get smacked around by Micha while yelling about their pointless argument ending in a sudden one shot out of nowhere.
>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?
Sounds like the clowns who go on about Prisma being a bastardization of the FATE franchise.
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.
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.
>How the hell is that bad?
You don't see anything inconsistent with people dying left and right and getting mortally wounded with blood everywhere in the beginning and then a cute and happy date scene with enka singing a few episodes later?
The fuck are you on about? I was making a joke and never said anything about everyone being one person. Are you autistic?
Sounds like the people who didn't like the first half of Nanoha because the exposition, characterization and tone went right over their heads despite it all being important to set up for themes the show would develop later on.
>a few episodes later
No, I don't think that you can't shift tone between scenes over the course of several episodes.
>huge fan backlash
>best selling season yet
>Fans all over the internet shitting on it
>Sales means they liked it
I spent a bunch of money on merch because I like the characters, VAs and music, and I want another season for them to fix it. That sure as hell doesn't mean I thought GX was a good season.
