There are many dorks in Symphogear, but I'm not sure Chris should be considered one of them.
Will I be pleased with this series if I'm only picking it up for this girl? Does she get a lot of screen time?
Yes. Chris is a miracle.
Do you think Cagliostro enjoys the taste of cum even though she is a man? Does she drink from Prelati's loli dick every chance she gets?
What would you do if you were constantly taking showers with cute girls and sleeping in the same bed as them?
>she's still more popular than Maria and maybe Tsubasa
Why does /a/ have such awful taste?
That is a mass/kid murderer and should be executed or imprisoned at the very least. She doesn't deserve a happy life after all she did. But still, there she is, whit her terrorist friends enjoying life
They deserve suffering, not friendship and incecream.
>Hell, she was the strongest gear user until she lost it.
Bullshit, SSJ's design is cool but it's just a shitty bootleg china relic that get boost by lesbian love. Don't forget that Chris was able to beat her but she can't take off her lesbian mask.
Putting season 1 on a pedestal is the equivalent of going
>I only watch mature shows for mature people such as myself
Symphogear is still good. Arguably better than S1 in terms of sheer entertainment value. Pretending otherwise is pretentious.
Her gear was canonically pretty weak, but her feelings for Hibiki turned it into a hard counter against relics. It's not called the lesbeam for nothing.
>people seem to think Tsubasa/Maria is crack?
It's just one very angry guy. Please ignore him, he genuinely has issues. He's been throwing fits like this for years.
No, putting S1 on a pedestal or saying that Symphogear is not "still good" is just matter of taste, nothing pretentious about.
Going all "why even watch this show past S1?", however, is dumb and unnecessary.
Regardless of your opinion on S1, it implied G and GX were significantly worse than S1 to the point of not being worth watching. That's enough to prove my case about pretentiousness.
GX character arcs sucked massive dick but the season still had a lot of cool moments (Radiant Force, Ver, Genocide, Carol's suicide, and so on). That's what I mean by "entertainment value". I think S1 was better written and directed, but it only reaches the peak retardation I now expect from Symphogear in the last third or so.
It didn't even go that far. The entirety of the pairing is based on one scene where Chris learns to accept help from someone who can help her. Tsubasa being such a strong role model caused Chris to internalize the "senpai" concept and attempt to mimic it when DMJii join the team. But people will ship what they ship.
In terms of yuri teasing, Chris has much more with Hibiki than anyone else.
Hibiki acts pretty gay herself, what with sharing a bed with Miku and calling her her sunshine and snuggling up with her. Maybe Hibiki is unaware of what she's doing, but surely on some level she knows it's not exactly typical heterosexual behavior..
>Maybe threads would be better if, I don't know, people weren't stupid enough to take obvious bait?
Cadenzavna is an Italian word with Polish suffix. Maria and Serena were war orphans scooped up by FIS. Apple was a song passed down through their village. Yurope has also been in a state of war and collapse for awhile now in Symphogear where as America only fell recently.
Sometimes I wish this series would touch upon the fact that these two grew up wandering around a war torn Eastern Europe trying to survive as orphans before they were picked up by Mamu. Instead of just mentioning it in G's keywords.
We might get something next episode with the Mamu flashback.
Awkwardly try to give Serena the "talk" before realizing her little sister already has far more sexual experience than she does.
Have you watched like any other Season before this one? The ED is always mainly about Chris
Chris has always been the main character of the series.
I was about to say that it seems pretty unlikely that Maria hasn't already banged a bunch of guys but then I remembered that she spent most of her youth as a military test subject and then as a terrorist so I guess she actually never had time for that.
The opening is about Tsubasa, the ending is about Chris. I thought that was the deal between the studio and the record company.
They really should have used Ayahi's cover of Memory for G's ending, instead of Next Destination. It fits her psyche better.
I really can't see the downsides to a rule under the Illuminati. Imagine a large scale genetic remodeling program by this person of highest taste (pic related) which gave you
Maria has a "slut body" too and still looks dignified.
You are gonna get your 100/60/90 and you will like it!
Remember when Tsubasa was a stuck-up emo bitch?
Remember when Hibiki was a depressed moralfag?
Remember when Chris was evil and hateful?
Remember when DMJII fought each other?
Remember when Miku went full retard?
Isn't this that one 500gb or some shit torrent? I think I downloaded it back in the day, I remember laughing hard since it had both voodoo chants and kangz shit, as well as nazi propaganda and Ahnenerbe was right shit.
Don't let it get to you. Maria is a great character. The fact she has become the designated wife of Nana's avatar character is proof of this.
I'm sure people only hate Maria ironically. There is no way it could be otherwise.
>She has elf9 now
Good luck with getting anything useful out of her.
How so? In my eyes GX kind of redeemed her after how whiny she was in G, her character development was rushed to shit but then again that was the case for all characters in GX, the idea behind it was good. I'd say Hibiki was still much worse.
Was it stated what the number they are aiming for is? Nanaquints? 100.000? 1.000.000?
>What number they're trying to reach if they're trying to reach a certain number
>The backstory of the alchemists, Tiki, and Adam and what they're goals.
>Chris and Sonia's resolution
>The situation that leads to Kirika and Shirabe being separated and fighting with someone else.
Kaneko was telling the truth about the real plot starting at episode 3 because there is a bunch of shit this season has to cover. I don't think we even have time for Hibiki to waver or for Maria or Dmji to go through any drama.
Breathe softly on that neck. Then run your fingers down it slowly, one by one. As her hands reach up in reflex, grab and hold onto them tightly. Move them down into a full embrace around her waist, and move in for a kiss.
Thanks, I actually just started imagining berserk Maria going wild on Tsubasa's slim, flexible body!
>recycling someone else's old gimmick
This is why Maria turned to shit. She never should have lost her spear and tornado cape.
I guess I can't expect some people to have good taste
I still can't believe no one made a doujin like that
Not really. Topdad and regressing Hibiki's developement again are a significant part of what was wrong with GX and Kaneko.
If anything Maria saw an improvement from what she was in G. She wasn't good but G left her in such a low place it takes time to crawl out of it;
GX Maria was a marked improvement from G Maria and one of the better things about GX in general. Even if it's just copying other character's identity, at least it gives Maria an identity. In G she was played up as an emotional character but her emotions just became a plot device and the resolution of G's plot left her with nothing. They've built up a pretty decent character since then and GX did a lot of gruntwork laying the foundation for that (foundation G failed to lay).
Cape is a bitch to animate in combat because every frame of movement demands the cape be redrawn accurately. Even as G went on, she used the cape less and less until she basically didn't use it at all. It's just not practical with the production constraints symphogear is produced under.
And hell, copying everyone else's abilities and combining them in interesting ways is pretty unique in and of itself. There's nothing inherently wrong with copycat characters.
Please don't be mean to Maria. She is certainly a flawed individual but she is the only mother figure we have and any knock at her is a knock at us and we are far to young and helpless to defend ourselves
Do you think the DMG and the Jii got along out the gate? Was it gay at first site or was their a bonding adventure where they learn to respect each other.
I was surprised when I learned she has 81cm of bust. They aren't drawn that big, though I guess it's also a side effect of being around Maria and Chris.
Why exactly did they feel the need to include their measurements anyway?
The straining voices add nice emphasis that sometimes improves the song overall.
I liked Tsubasa's character song in episode 3 much better than the disc version for a few points where she grunts the line and punctuates it much harder. Worked better for the song, I think.
Three sizes measurement are common procedure in medical checkups, at least in Japan. Even school checkups take them.
That said, so is height but that isn't listed. Maybe Ver just needed to know.
So Ver is one of those famous mexican intellectuals?
Well if they don't have LiNKER due to this useless moeblob dragging her feet...
The cute and the smug, literally best combo. Killing the dolls off was my biggest gripe with GX. Sure, you can argue this way we'd end up with a ridiculously large cast of characters, but who the fuck cares? They were so fucking great I couldn't care less.
I miss the cape. Back when Maria had that, it felt as if she was a force to be reckoned with.
Why didn't Hibiki get a cape when she started using Black Gungnir?
It wasn't her shard, it was her Symphogear form that was called Black Gungnir. But the form has as much to do with the user as it has the relic. Kanade's Gungnir is the same shard Hibiki uses and it has a darker orange tone and a lot more black.
I love Aoi!
>tfw every season this year besides Spring has her in a main character role of a show(Tanya, Hibiki, Kino)
G was so bad but I thought Maria's Gungnir outfit was the best. How bad is the current season of symphoshit?
The current season has basically been one continuous orgasm for three episodes straight and at this point I'm concerned for my personal wellbeing.
Hey now watch your mouth, symphogear is great even though GX was kinda bad.
>I was going to disagree
What yuri did G even have?
Tsubamari got teased in like 2 fights and then shelved, and never went beyond random moments of sexual tension in combat.
Miku basically didn't exist until she got Gear'd, and nothing in that battle or its leadup matched S1's reconciliation leglock
Chris got fucking nothing
And Hibiki was basically an asexual punching machine with an angst bend through the whole season.
Basically all G gave us was a pair of horny hot topic toddlers that don't know what kissing is yet.
And don't get me fucking started on GX.
When will we get this season's Beef Stroganoff.
And the aho too
Yeah, people were saying that G was better than season 1 and that GX was G's redemption at the start of their respective seasons.
We should probably wait until episode 5 or so to start calling AXZ good.
I honeslty forgot most of GX already. The only thing that I clearly remember was the fight in the last Episode because they always manage to make that shit hype as fuck with the music.
G was polarizing, people either loved or hated it. You're combining the opinions of two separate groups to create an indicisive strawman. People who hated G at the beginning still hate it now, and people who loved it still do. G was pretty much the same all throughout, only the extremely polarizing Hibiki arm and Mikugear scenes were controversial enough to change someone's opinion on the season as a whole.
And GX's first episode was fantastic, which gave people a lot of hope. Then the second episode onwards was fucking awful and the whole season was fucking awful. Their was a kneejerk at the very beginning of the season that was just as quickly dissuaded.
We're into the 3rd episode of AXZ now. people seem to forget that by this point in GX, Hibiki was already knee deep in her complete character regression arc. It wasn't just 'showing signs' of falling apart. It had already fallen apart.
Whether AXZ will be as good as G or S1 remains to be seen, but it could literally be hentai of topdad fucking Miku in front of Bikki for the next 10 episodes and it still wouldn't be as bad as GX.
Call it shit taste or what ever, but mama cat is the sexistiest character in this series for me
The other girls range from cute to cool, but only maria makes me want inseminate her
>People who hated G at the beginning still hate it now
And a lot of people who didn't hate it at the beginning hated it by the end and still hate it now. It was almost universally loved at the start, and then started gaining some negative traction as it went on. Just because that wasn't you doesn't make it a strawman.
I wasn't interested in Maria in G because she spent most of it sulking and her posture was terrible.
I liked her character a lot more in GX, but AXZ really went all out with making her a gorgeous bombshell. This is one of the few shows where there's just too many good characters for me to pick a favourite.
>Burns the memories of her dad
>Still has a flashback of him 2 minutes later
What? And don't give me that she didn't burn all her memories because she clearly has any idea who she is when she saves Elf9
Yes Garie yes good
>Then the second episode onwards was fucking awful and the whole season was fucking awful.
You know that's not true. Most /a/nons enjoyed the whole first half (if we except Biki getting bitchy and BTFO at every turn) because dolls and shit happening. The threads erupted with episode 6.
>Leave a thread full of Maria bullying
>Return to a thread full of capeposting
Sasuga fellow Mariafags.
The point is it was enjoyable moment to moment despite being the worst season overall. If they had either condensed the fights or had more episodes it could have been the opposite.
But that could describe G too, it even has the same stupid second half problem. And unlike G, the villain doesn't suddenly become pathetic and Hibiki actually fights them seriously.
Does Japan have Hooters?
>inb4 the equivalent restaurant chain in Symphogear is called "Zenbus"
I don't know how you guys can continue to watch this shlock after Ono fucking ruined the franchise. The whole alchemy/magic shit is fucking stupid and seasons 2 and especially 3 were awful
>seasons 2 and especially 3 were awful
But season 4 is good so it's alright.
>The whole alchemy/magic shit is fucking stupid
Alchemy gave us dolls, your opinion is irrelevant.
Isn't Kaneko who comes out with story, chracters and is the one in charge of the series composition?
You can blame Ono for the directing, editing/pacing and nothing more in Symphogear's case.
I absolutely love the dolls, Mike especially, and am gutted they were killed off. Best and worst thing that happened to GX.
I want to feel Micha's massive sharp claws on my body.
I still have hope for their return.
As shitty as Commie usually is they're fine when it comes to Symphogear.
