One Episode Impression – Senki Zesshō Symphogear

So here we are at a brand new season. I have even less time and patience nowadays, so I’m probably giving each series just one episode each. My judgement isn’t the best so I might be really off on some of these, but… meh. There’ll be some spoilers, obviously. Will be posting as I watch them.

Two years ago, a pair of idols, Tsubasa Kazanari and Kanade Amō, collectively known as ZweiWing, fought against an alien race known as Noise using armor known as Symphogear. To protect a girl named Hibiki Tachibana, who got severely wounded by the Noise, Kanade sacrificed herself. Two years later, as Tsubasa has fought the Noise alone, Hibiki ends up gaining the same power as Kanade.

A dash of Puella Magic Madoka Magica (it’s got a Meduka and a Homerun), something from Macross Frontier (only the songstresses are also the hotshots), a transformation sequence that vaguely reminds me of Mawaru Penguindrum (only low budget) and battle costumes from Infinite Stratos. Can’t say I’m too impressed with this first episode.

Verdict: unlikely to continue
