>Tomato lady talks about how you need to water tomatoes when they really need it and not spoil them to make them grow up strong
>Maria remembers Mam and how she only showed them compassion when they needed it instead of spoiling them so that they would turn out strong
>Maria and DMJii are still weak and fuck up pretty much everything they try
Someone didn't think that metaphor through.
FIS should've died in G.
>Maria is legitimately useless and angsts about nothing for 2 episodes straight
>Kirika's only character trait is that she's retarded
>Shirabe's personality flips between quiet nothing and moody "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE ME" bitch
Linker is made of love and the desire to help people, everyone who played WA2 is going to roll their eyes at the hamfisted nature of Elf9's exposition about Airgethlam, the gears got tired after 5 minutes of fighting because we need to pretend FIS is important. Hibiki still acted like an idiot and DMJii saved her, Maria is still whining about her weakness, the tomato metaphor was dumb because see OP, Ver was made of magic linked emotions because muh gears, and the only thing that matters from this episode was the good animation, which you don't need to know moon for.
Clothes shopping for Maria's birthday.
She killed Fine by accident while throwing a suicidal temper tantrum that almost killed the person she was killing herself over in the first place. That's far from a shining moment for her.
I hope that doesn't set her up as a noble sacrifice to save the other two after Adam's betrayal.

I thought WAfags liked how half of everything in Symphogear is a Wild Arms reference?
You are probably right, and I would be fine with that. It would allow them to return the favor.
Also having Cagliostro survive the season and possibly join S.O.N.G. would make for a very bad influence on some of the gears.
I don't enjoy seeing one of the plot points that tied WA2 together at the end that was started a few times over the course of a 50+ hour game repeated twice per episode to remind me about Maria's power. I'd rather they try to recapture the plot progression and characterization from the games.
Those two baiting each other is the best
It can't be worse than what Chris is doing to Kirika.
Has alchemy gone too far?
In >>160811128, you say that the other anon implied that "having standards equates bitter elitism". However, you were the one to bring up something like "standards" in the first place, while the bitter elitism comment was only directed at your initial paragraph. Based on that, it seems like you are equating the opinions you expressed there to "having standards", which also implies that any other (more positive) opinion equals a lack of standards. The implication is further strengthened by >>160810890, where you indirectly, but still perfectly clearly, tell the person who was disagreeing with you that they have no standards (or more exactly, that they are not smart enough to learn moon or have standards).
You expressed "how much you hate this", claimed that having that opinion means "having standards" and were pretty clear that, yes, other opinions ("not hating it as much as you do") mean "having no standards". And with that, all the core parts of what I claimed you were saying are present.
Of course, I might just be misinterpreting something you said, so feel free to correct me if I am. I'm also aware that my interpretation is based on posts made only after you were accused of being a bitter elitist, so even if entirely correct it doesn't mean that the comment was justified at that point.
If you're going to compliment my rant, at least read it until the end.
>I'm also aware that my interpretation is based on posts made only after you were accused of being a bitter elitist, so even if entirely correct it doesn't mean that the comment was justified at that point.
You're right, you didn't really sound like a bitter elitist before you were called one. I just found it funny how you seemed to be proving the baseless insult right in your responses.
>the gears got tired after 5 minutes of fighting because we need to pretend FIS is important
The best part of this episode was getting to see the original trio get tired out from fighting so much. We rarely get to see them struggle like this anymore, they just bullshit final power their way through noise that just stand there and let them. Not to mention the episode implied it was a lot longer than 5 minutes of fighting, and was enough of a long sustained fight it gave Elf9 time to finish the linker.
Too bad they spent like half of G bashing is over the head with how powerful the original 3 are, and had them fight for long periods of time while getting poisoned and powered down.
The noise fights this season have been great. Even the fake ones have a sense of dread and fun to them.
>Has alchemy gone too far?
Not in Symphogear, I don't think any of their alchemists have it in them to cross the line.
I can think of some reasons, but I also sort of see what you mean. You did ask me to point out where you said that in "the post", so I could have realized that you only meant the original one. Might also have been a good idea if I had just put the disclaimer at the start of the post to clear up any misunderstandings like that right away.
She is ok lolibait. Fucking up the emotionless loli archetype is like fucking up a sandwhich. Still, she doesn't really do much with her archetype or character in general. Her Gear is pretty unique, I guess.
The bear was actually the tamest offender. She got beaten up by a delinquent and whored out at an idol contest by the town's promoter even though she had crippling anxiety, which more or less mindbroke her.
And yet she's the highlight of the episode.
I just realized why there was such surprise for seeing maria up at the end. They were so used to her jobbing that seeing her do something, anything, is cause for surprise.
Also she jobs hard next episode. Carol saves the day.
OK, so there seems to be at least some truth to it in that they use the appearance of a body type to judge if a AV is fit for publication. And I always thought the cow vs flat debate was carried out in jest.
Please don't do this, there are no winners in this war.
>mfw they get
Diazto sing that part
I'm sorry anon, I wish it wasn't so. But you have to wake up to reality. We are now living in a post-Miku era.
I will post this every thread until they dock if you catch my drift.
You're setting yourself up for disappointment, anon.
And me too
She is cute but Cag and Frogloli are cuter.
Cag and Lati need to kiss Germain already
