How much longer until she does more than be cute this season?
Why doesn't anyone save us from the plague that these subs are?
Probably in 3-4 episodes when she develops a method for letting Maria and the lolis use their geahs without Linker based on the moment of insight when she saw Maria's aura, just in time for them to join the fray and turn the tide of some battle.
This is uncalled for. Poor Maria.
what manners of beasts have symphogear threads attracted
>tfw hate top dad.
>wish bad things would happen to him
>but know that this would traumatise Hibiki
Is there a story behind that line of her's in the OVA short? I feel like I'm missing some context that made it funny on top of being very cute.
This is your villain for tonight.
not if you're a hardcore bikkifag like me
It's just a local festival Senpai
I fixed your STUPID Bikki and her STUPID HAIR.
>Make me a woman, Tsubasa
What did she mean by this?
>tfw no toned Hibiki
What's the point of all the training if you don't look /fit/ after it all?
Do breasts really get bigger with phonic gain?
But the entire plot of S3 was Hibiki wanted to save Carol but she was too far gone to be saved. I wouldn't be surprised if Hibiki had to kill someone this season. Nanoha eat your heart out type thing.
I'm expecting one of them other than Germaine to turn out to be psychotic and die and the other two to end up beaten while still ostensibly "villains", but will probably show up to help in some future season. Tiki joins the main group.
Stand up! Lady!!
"Ready, ready, stand up! Lady!!"
Hi, good morning!
I put on lipstick that's just a little strong and wink at the mirror
Stand up, lady!
Heels too high? No problem, I'm walkin' against the wind
The world changes with just a little confidence
(Which way should I choose)
Left, right, any way is a good way!
Come lady, ready go!!
Whatever is put in front of me, I'll show you how I overcome them
Work and romance are as easy as pulling on a lever
Everyone follow me, watch my back
Even if I'm sometimes a weakling, please love me?
"Why, why, why love?"
What's up? Baby!
I'll stand tall even without imitating anyone
I'm the only one!
The most important thing is to stand as yourself
What's the definition of a good woman?
(It's how she makes her entrance)
Someone who's PAN from the bottom
I'll be that kind of woman
I'm supposed to have become the ideal kind of woman
But have I become the type to lie in ambush with her arms folded?
But there are still days when I'm laughed at and turn red
Even if I'm weird sometimes, please love me?
"Why, why, why love?"
Strength comes in many forms
I couldn't have realised that alone
Where I'm lacking, I want everyone to
Gather and move forward together
Someday I want to sing that song and laugh together
Somebody important left two words behind
If I live a little longer, will I come closer to understanding them?
Everyone follow me, watch my back
Even if I'm sometimes a weakling, please love me?
"Why, why, why love?"
"I wanted to tell you that's why love "
Maria will start winning once she successfully woos Tsubasa.
One thing I always find weird is that no one ever tries to ship Hibiki and Tsubasa even though they've been fighting together the longest. They really never had any chemistry did they? Seems like they never even have interaction.
>They really never had any chemistry did they? Seems like they never even have interaction.
This was really obvious in GX. They had almost zero direct interaction with each other throughout those 13 episodes.
>I'm gonna be like Maria-onee-chan!
Why is Maria so useless?
Why is Maria so unoriginal?
Why does Maria steal moves from other people?
Why does Maria exist?
What purpose does Maria serve in the story at this point?
Maria so alone?
>Maria panned from below
I guess it doesn't make much sense in Japanese either
I just watched S1-S3 over the past week so I could watch AXZ with /a/. But I have a few questions about the series so far:
Why is GX considered to be so terrible compared to S1 and S2? It's not quite as good as the previous seasons, but I don't understand the sheer level of hate that GX seems to get from Symphogear fans.
Why does the show have such a hard on for humiliating the USA?
Why has the music progressively been getting worse since S1? There hasn't been a good OP since S1 (Ihaven't seen the AXZ OP yet though).
What is the importance of that letter that keeps cropping up in the OVAs?
Why do people think Leiur is still alive?
Will we ever know what's the deal with Genjuro?
Why is there so little good fan art for a series that is on its 4th season?
Why is Chris best girl?
hey you can get a chuckle out of someone if they try really hard.
I just felt like GX was way too formulaic compared to the rest. Everyone gets their 1-2 episodes to resolve their inner conflict and get their powerup, they always conclude in the same way, and the overarching story and villains were both very weak.
Fags were hard up for more symphogear and the first ep was good enough they couldn't control their expectations.
GX was a better ending and start than G. G is worse in terms of perfect moments/eps but it has less shit in between which GX had in spades.
Other stuff in Symphogear has explanations, Genjuro seems like he should tie in with it but he just doesn't which makes it weird when he can do things like this.
>Why is GX considered to be so terrible compared to S1 and S2? It's not quite as good as the previous seasons, but I don't understand the sheer level of hate that GX seems to get from Symphogear fans.
>Why does the show have such a hard on for humiliating the USA?
Europe is literally in ruins and you're talking about humiliating USA?
>Why has the music progressively been getting worse since S1?
>What is the importance of that letter that keeps cropping up in the OVAs?
Kirika being autist
>Will we ever know what's the deal with Genjuro?
You wouldn't become superhuman after watching action movies and training?
>Why is there so little good fan art for a series that is on its 4th season?
Niche with dedicated fanbase like Horizon
>Why is Chris best girl?
Rape make everything better.
>has a ninja side kick
Yes. It is. Genjuro is bloody great. I think it's hilarious that even in the world of mystic fighting beyond regular humans their boss is still as strong or stronger than most of them (without X-drive), he just can't fight noise.
Watching Fine's shock was amazing and really sold me on him and the show in S1
>I don't understand the sheer level of hate that GX seems to get from Symphogear fans.
When you had to wait for a week in between each episodes, the 2nd part of GX was really disappointing. For around 6 weeks it felt like Symphogear turned into a mediocre monster of the week show with bad animation and very annoying things happening like topdad, and that fucking bullcrap ending
The complete package doesn't feel as bad simply because you didn't have to wait so much and judge every episodes on their own merits, and they fixed the animation a bit as well.
The problem with GX is mostly that they introduce alchemy and a type of enemy to fight against, (eg. dolls, alchemists) but, instead of doing anything interesting with the new premise they fuck up by retreading character arcs from G and GX, and try to reintroduce more drama through the introduction of topdad. All this isn't including the screentime added through the extra additions to the main cast (Maria, Kirika, Shirabe), who you also need to develop as characters. Plus on top of that you have to develop villain motivations, and on top of that Last Action Hero returns which altogether creates a clusterfuck because GX was trying to do to many things at once.
Despite that, there are things that people really enjoy about GX. Shuttle suplex, Dolls (what little time they had), and the return of Last Action Hero, it's just a shame that they had to cram all of that together with topdad drama and a bunch of other stuff.
GX was definitely a season of series-defining high points, but some very deep valleys of nothing in between. The other seasons were more a straight line of consistency that trended upwards that never really reached the heights of GX's peaks.
>For around 6 weeks it felt like Symphogear turned into a mediocre monster of the week show with bad animation and very annoying things happening like topdad, and that fucking bullcrap ending
I know what you mean. Even when binging on GX, I realised that it would have sucked watching it week to week.
Maria would be less useless if she picked up the superior Argetlahm.
>The complete package doesn't feel as bad simply because you didn't have to wait so much and judge every episodes on their own merits, and they fixed the animation a bit as well.
Yes. The BDs fixed a lot of the animation problems, and GX stands up much better when watched back to back.
Oh and Chris started to annoy me in GX, and AZX is dead set on making her worse. Her bullshit drama about everything ever in every single season is really too much. I'm sick of her edgy bawwing.
While Tsubasa got over Kanade's dead in less than a season, and Maria turned her uselessness around, and Hibiki is killing gods, Chris is still here bullshiting about her past despite having improved her situation so much since then.
Only in S1 when she tried to be Tsubasa's Kanade for the night and Tsubasa was going on about sinful lips to her.
>Oh and Chris started to annoy me in GX
As much as I love Chris, most of that love actually comes from her smaller character moments in the main series and OVAs. Her drama in G and GX was fucking godawful.
But why did the EU collapse? Is this only mentioned in AXZ? I only remember the USA getting shit on in S1-3.
>tfw AXZ will make anons feel bad for shitting on Chris
Your retribution is forthcoming.
>After EU collapsed, only UK managed to survive in decent shape
I thought it was Greece that escaped? Somehow.
S1 mentioned Japan shouldering some of the EU's debt. It was an economic collapse
possibly caused by the Illuminati?Honestly, I think both it and the US bashing is more of a "Japan stronk" thing in general than a dislike for any particular foreign power.
The characterisation was indeed great, but I just felt that how her drama arc panned out could have been handled much better. Her motives mad sense, but it wasn't entertaining/interesting to watch. That said, it was much worse in GX.
>S1 mentioned Japan shouldering some of the EU's debt
That was possible future debt, not any pre-existing debt.
>Honestly, I think both it and the US bashing is more of a "Japan stronk" thing in general than a dislike for any particular foreign power.
I dunno, S1 really wanted to portray Americans as devious and inept.
>but are Miku's weird physical feats really just because she ran track once upon a time?
>he didn't get superpowers from running track in middleschool
>you have all done well, I am proud of each of you
>I've watched this team grow taking on any challenge that presented itself
>takes off tie entirely
>if you're really ready to take on humanity's hopes and face God again
>then I have one final test for you
It would be great. Bonus points of the rest of the team sans Biki and Chris get dropped early or are injured from fighting the last battle so it comes down to his protege and his adopted daughter facing him down.
Will the Shuttle Suplex scene ever be topped?
I think that scene alone is responsible for many anons (including myself) picking up Symphogear.
Nah, poor diet growing up and her boobs are just too heavy.
I know. But hey, not everybody can be there from the start.
Europe is "the Dark Continent". The US got off lightly
until AXZ, where it's mentioned off-hand in episode 1 that the US has fallen
Which keyword was this? I only remember Greece making it through.
Her father is
The only response this evoked from anyone was "How could he?!" and that's it.
What is the formula of a G episode, or an S1 episode? GX had four consecutive episodes of the pendants breaking one by one as everyone got their spotlight in turn, then four consecutive episodes of the dolls breaking one by one as everyone got their spotlight in turn.
>Why do people think Leiur is still alive?
It's less that she must still be alive and more that she has such a good alibi for it that it'd be a waste if it were just coincidence.
Basically, there are two reasons we know the dolls died. The first is that we see the other three break apart on screen, but Leiur died in an explosion that the cast explicitly would have been unable to see, because Chris had to close the blast doors to contain it. The second is that their deaths were required to get the song from IGNITE, but Leiur had a sister doll who had very little apparent relevence to Carol's plans despite being heavily foreshadowed, and who just so happened to *also* be beaten by Chris before her IGNITE deactivated.
>Biki is extremely fit but as straight as Chris.
Biki is straight but effectively homeschooled in terms of social experience. Miku has normalised all this weird shit with her when she was vulnerable and alone.
When someone mentioned couples in the show, she immediately envisioned a man and woman. That is her natural response and inclination.
>making us suffer more Maria
Why not kill me off instead.
>The only response this evoked from anyone was "How could he?!" and that's it.
Yeah, people were surprisingly unrustled by that.
Do we ever learn anything about her mother?
They didn't bring tanks with them. And they certainly wouldn't still be using obsolete WW2 tanks almost a century later.
Stop making the Mikii-Biki homolust seem untoward and dark.
Clearly she's either some scullery bitch who didn't want to displease the family or she NTR'd the shit out of Tsubasa's """Dad""". Who would want to learn more about that human garbage
>Miku helped her the best she could while she was going through hard times
>they end up getting incredibly close
>well it's not gay because circumstances led to that!
is this seriously what you're pulling right now
No, killing Jii would be better. Kirika wants to die already and feels great shame for hurting Shirabe, but gets by as acting as her support. Shirabe on the other hand seems to be more emotionally stable, confidant in her stupidity, she wouldn't suffer the same overwhelming lose of purpose Kirika would, she doesn't already have guilt to compound by accidentally killing her spare life.
Killing Miku would also be pretty great. Have Hibiki go out on one of her adventures only to return to Japan to find her dorm flattened and Miku crushed in the rubble.
>The second is that their deaths were required to get the song from IGNITE, but Leiur had a sister doll who had very little apparent relevence to Carol's plans despite being heavily foreshadowed, and who just so happened to *also* be beaten by Chris before her IGNITE deactivated.
Did Leiur's "light" ever appear above her podium in the chateau like it did for the other 3 when they died?
>or she NTR'd the shit out of Tsubasa's """Dad"""
I am curious as to whether Tsubasa's father was actually married to him when the old man impregnated her or whether she was just some random woman.
It's not dark. Miku is a desperate lesbian and Biki is a social tard who just doesn't fully understand the implications of stuff like sharing a bed.
>becomes a complete social pariah
>her dad leaves her
>no one will talk to her
>other people threaten violence and wreck her house
>one girl still wants to spend time with her
>is handsy and overly affectionate
>biki just rolls with it and it becomes 'normal' for her and miku to be like that
Straight as an arrow.
>form a life long bond through shared suffering
Miku wants to fuck but Biki is just innocent. Again, she imagines couples as men and women. She's not bent.
>She's like Hibikis mother who might as well not exist.
At least we've seen her a couple of times).
>Miku is a desperate lesbian and Biki is a social tard who just doesn't fully understand the implications of stuff like sharing a bed.
Biki is being taken advantage of though.
>she imagines couples as men and women
>knowing what is normal and what isn't means you can't be gay
not all gay people are lunatics you know
I'm pretty sure Hibiki would have had plenty of normal social interaction in the years before the Zwei Wing concert and she definitely has friends that aren't Miku at Lydian so I find that hard to believe.
Knowing that most couples are straight doesn't make you straight, anon.
>becomes a complete social pariah
For a couple of years, before and after which she was able to socialize completely fine.
It seems weird that 'some random woman' fucked both men and married the son without saying anything or knowing anything. No matter how you look at it there is some deception involved. Fucking disgusting, honestly. At least you could make fun of Topdad drama. There's nothing funny about NTR in a show like this.
Fuck off Mariafag
>things are back to normal now
>means that a year or two of having your house stoned and even your own family abandoning you has no effect on your personality or relationships
Yeah okay, guys
Yuka Iguchi and Aoi Yuki both call Miku "Hibiki's wife" during interviews. And Yuka Iguchi admitting that she plays Miku as being in love with Hibiki, with Aoi Yuki responding that the feeling is mutual. If even they are playing it up so both of them are gay, then I don't now where you're getting this whole 'Hibiki is secretly straight' shit from.
>There's nothing funny about NTR in a show like this.
Yeah, it was the only revelation in Symphogear that completely off-guard and seemed really out of place. I don't resent its presence in the series (it explains a lot), but it is very odd.
No more than someone who looks good wooing someone takes advantage. Miku likes biki and acts close with her. Biki is receptive but not full aware of the implications.
Yes but when she considers the concept in general and it's a man not a woman it gives you a touch of insight.
Is AXZ when Maria will finally stop jobbing and woos Tsubasa with her lewd combat skills?
>tfw I'm one of the only people who thought that Carol's death was a positive for GX and wrapped up her story nicely
>get bullied in middle school
>despite getting over it minus a silly "cursed" catchphase that never catches on as soon as you change school, your sexuality is now broken forever
Mariarhymes with best Geah
Carol's death could have been used to teach Bikki that you can't save everyone. But instead the survived the nuke, crawled to 11nein's death bed and merged with her, which someone killed Inori's voice. So they mashed several possible good resolutions of the whole conflict into the worst possible mix.
>crawled to 11nein's death bed and merged with her, which someone killed Inori's voice
I prefer to view it as sacrificing herself so Elfnein (the one who still held positive memories of their father) could live. She may reside somewhere with Elfnein's subconscious yet, but ultimately it's Elfnein who gets to continue on living.
>How many cuteness-induced heart attacks she has caused, actually.
I had at least 2 during the pic related scene.
Since they're clones, albeit imperfect ones, I would presume their different voices are (in-universe) just due to Elfnein speaking in different tones rather than physical differences.
Carol was a real girl, too, right? Not a biological doll like Elfnein?
Okay, makes as much sense as anything else in Symphogear, let's go with that. Especially because it opens a backdoor for reversing that. They better make that happen.
Was the type of Alchemy that Carol used to transfer Elf9's consciousness into her body similar to magic the dolls used or was it something previously not shown in GX?
Yeah, Elfcarol has a normal female body.
And if she becomes adult using her gear we'll get busty sexy Elfcarol.
I think it was the same as what Garie did to people - draining Elfnein's memories through a kiss. It's just that she burned the last of her own memories while doing it, so Elfnein was the only thing left.
>And if she becomes adult using her gear we'll get busty sexy Elfcarol.
>she retains her shy personality
>It's just that she burned the last of her own memories while doing it, so Elfnein was the only thing left.
That we know of.
Why did Elfnein's body disappear though? That didn't happen to the body's of the people Garie drained.
Just gonna ignore the obviously insane anon.
Where does the phrase "Waterfall in my pants" come from? I see it in these threads a lot.
Going to watch the first two eps
Anything I should be aware of in regards to commie's translation?
Please seek mental help for your victim complex
Did best girl tell the lesbians to get a room?

Should be "proof of anything".
>And the fact
Don't start sentences with "and".

This shouldn't end with a period, and the wording is off given the insult you're going for. It should be "Tell me, which sounds more likely:"
>Everyone thinking that all crack shitters are so fucking retarded they can't even function enough to form basic thoughts and realize that "I say so" and edited screen shots are not actually real proof.
This is 6th grade level prose. Let me help you out.
>Everyone thinking that crack shitters are so fucking retarded that they lack the basic brain function to realize that "I say so" coupled with some edited screen shots aren't actually real proof, or you just samefagging like a madman.
See that? Much better.
You really need to work on your English if you want to pretend to be logical and rational with your incessant shitposting. As it is now, your broken and childlike prose doesn't really lend itself well to talking down on people. Hope I could help!
I prefer this it's also better animated.
Yeah, but all she got out of that one was using handguns in close combat. She should watch some Bruce Lee movies, or Jackie Chan movies or early Jet Li movies so she can lighten up and get fit at the same time.
Symphogear makes a lot more sense when you realize it's a universe where passion is the path to power. Genjuuro already had a passion for action movies, but it was Kanade's death that pushed him to train and become as strong as he is(just compare how he looked before the concert and after). Ogawa is passionately professional, and we all know that Miku's passion is enough to turn an incompatible mook relic into a mobile Lesbeam cannon.
>Caring about anyone who isn't a cute girl with super powers or magic
Sorry, but that would punch all kinds of holes in the narrative and make it apparent how flimsy the characterization is after G.
The fights for all of them were great in S1. I still think the early skirmishes between Chris and the other two are the best battles in the series.
The most disappointing part of G was how few of the geah vs geah fights measured up to the S1 standard despite that being the backbone of the season.
Was S1 as superior as I remember if being, or was S2 just as good?
Who cares you could never get that sequence on this board even if sound was allowed. Plus there are a million reasons why it would be a bad idea. Mainly third world posting making entire anime episodes out of 20 second clips in threads.
>implying there's anything even remotely intelligent about Symphogear, S1 or otherwise
Don't be silly, anon - Symphogear threads are the most intellectual threads on /a/.
S1 has a better script and the best action scenes, but the visuals have some really rough edges. S2 was more polished overall, but never reached the same heights as S1 and suffers from some fundamental flaws.
>tfw you will never have some cute anime girl completely vaporize you
Swan Songs seem to get less and less riskier as the series progresses.
Yes. G had some cool high points and some great animation, but overall it wasn't nearly as solid as season 1, nor were the themes and characterization nearly as well done. GX was just one big steaming pile of shit, anyone pretending it's nearly as good as the other two is retarded.
>Hi, this is FIS
>Here's their character arc an-
>Ah fuck it, time for Mikugear
This is the first I've heard of there being multiple seasons of Symphogear. I tried to watch it when it was first airing but I dropped it about halfway through.
Does it get better? What's the appeal (apart from the qt with the cheeks)?
>Nothing you said is correct,
Well that's just not true. All of the corrections I made were correct, and all of the suggestions were sound. I get wanting to argue about your shitty fetish, but as someone whose native language clearly isn't English, why would you refuse help from a native speaker?
Cute characters and I like the songs.
That's it for me mostly.
>Does it get better?
S1 gets better, but S2 is slightly worse than S1, and S3 is worse than S2. S4 needs to be good, or we're fucked for S5.
I don't remember that but I pretty much switched off by that point in the season so I probably missed it.
I want Bikki to make him into an honest man.
Come back ;_;
It's a dumb show that's just self-aware enough to get really ridiculous with its action scenes, but not self-aware enough to realise that its attempts at serious storytelling fail miserably. It's sort of like the anime equivalent of a good B-movie.
Biki nullifies their risk when they do that link up shit. That's her thing and it's also a thing maria pseudo steals so she can be important in group attacks too. God maria is awful.
>Three cuts of some keyframes with almost no inbetweens
Yeah, that totally makes up for stepping down from this.
>You just saying it's wrong doesn't either.
I'm a native English speaker. You're not. Why would you think you're more qualified to comment on English syntax?
>you are posting crack shit
Yuri is all garbage, I don't post any yuri shipping at all.
S1 definitely had the best structure and pacing, but personally I thought most of the plotlines themselves were too cliché to be engaging. Chris' in particular at times felt like something out of a children's cartoon, pic related. Tsubasa's was nice, but then I am a swordfag, so maybe I'm giving it too much credit.
Thread is going to shit - post cute Chris.
>I'm a native English speaker
Not when you write crap like this
>I love when you try to give verbal alibis like this. It's just the confirmation that I'm always dead accurate in my claims that you're samefagging.
This might be my favorite Chris. Episode 4 of G made her my waifu.
There's nothing self induced about looking at porn. That's entirely external stimulation.
But I don't fap to any of the gears, let alone imagine them in non cannon lewd situations.
>People can't ignore such shit tier baiting.
Jesus this is why daily threads are stupid because people just sit in them and get mad when people come in and shit post because all it takes is one person and a couple of posts because other posters just sit in one thread wanting constant discussion.
This crack shit or whatever forced meme is terrible and /a/ has seen much worse than some shitter spamming the same boring conversations over and over.
They did it everyday
, with hands holding.
I would pay alot of money for a good Miku/Hibiki handholding softcore hentai. With like15min of SOL before 15min of passionate Sex where they tell each other that they love each other every minute.
Should I pick up symphogeahh?
I never watched it and I keep seeing it's popular.
If anyone cares, name a few animes similiar to it so I can tell wether it's something I'd like
I can't believe Carol died for someone this useless
headpat whores are never useless.
Yeah but at least, last thread's argument over Carol was understandable. Here, it's just metashitposting.
There's nothing else like Symphogear. At worst, perhaps Nanoha and mecha shit I don't know of.
Sadly we can't have nice things, even a good vanilla doujins are barely exist on panda.
The part where they sing Senritsu Sorority is amazing.
You seriously didn't get that Carol gave Elf9 her body?
You should listen to her screaming in mobage.
Poor Carol's body is being violated with friendship activities. It's almost blasphemous.
I'm not too high on yurishit and even still I got one of my biggest heartboner out of this scene
I will post this every thread until they dock.
Nah, she just wanted to tell Hibiki that she's very good friend.
