Is this show actually good or is it just /a/ having shit taste again? With season 3 coming up before too long I figure I should catch up so I can watch with /a/ but I don't want to start it without double checking first because my severe autism prevents me from dropping shows unless they're outright abysmal.
I generally like idol shows but I've heard this is in a category of its own rather than being like your ordinary idol show.
Symphogear thread, I guess
The first season is decent, the second is complete dogshit.
It's pretty fucking bad. I think some people on here like it ironically, or they ignore that it's shit.
You've got that reversed
Its so bad anon. Just so bad. You wouldn't like it.
This. Both were bad, but second had some decent moments.
Hibiki would be my waifu if she wasn't already married to Miku.
I have literally no idea why /a/ likes this
I watched the first four episodes and it has got to be one of the worst series I've ever completed.
>Will I like thing, random strangers on the internet? I like other vaguely related thing, will this thing be subjectively enjoyable to me? There is no possibility for me to watch the first few episodes to see, because I have a self-imposed condition to watch even things I don't like to completion.
Don't worry man, you'll love it. If you don't, well it's your punishment for being a collosal faggot.
For some reason the closer to full retard Symphogear gets the more I like it.
>I watched the first four episodes
>worst series I've ever completed
I'm not sure why I love it either, but I love it more than any other series I've seen. It's probably how it plays around with cliches so well.
Sometimes it plays them straight, sometimes it flips them on its head, other times it ramps them up, and every once in a while it does all three at once
It's not idol at all in any way except for a single episode in both seasons.
Just watch it.
On a similar note, fuck Commie for that bullshit they pulled in episode 7.
They just copy-pasted the translation for Hibiki's song from earlier episodes, when she wasn't even singing the same verse
On the upside, they did sub the show.
But it wasn't 100% perfect so fuck them.
I'm also autistic to the point that I'm not angry at them for being lazy, but rather for being half-assedly lazy. It's like they're too lazy to be lazy properly
Apparently they translated the song but the guy who added the lyrics in didn't realise it was a second verse and nobody was around to notice between then and release.
Their one unforgivable error in S2 was at the end of ep 12. Not only is this obviously wrong - the line is "haato no zenbu de," i.e., "with all your heart," but it's a quote from a song from S1 which has been translated for over a year already. Not to mention the rest of the scene is riddled with lines about hearts, and personally, I think "you're the best!" is pretty fucking lame compared to "with all your heart!" in this context. The Commie line ruins the scene.
It was so bad I made my own sub track in aegisub to fix it.
There was also them missing Chris' Armor Purger in the same episode but that was relatively obscure so I'll give them a pass.
That one bugged me too. I can ignore things like that, though. It can be chalked up to a translator or editor that wasn't super into it to know every line that was being referenced or every used-once attack
But botching an entire verse of a song just baffles me. It wasn't just mistranslations like "Sen pa no Thunder" to "The Essense of the Flames of War" which are understandable and slip under the radar much easier. Just, the fact that not one person realized that none of the words they were putting on the script were matching what was being said blows my mind
There was only one guy who did the songs (fugiman, he posted here a few times) and he doesn't know Japanese.
My dad is watching this show. He accidently watched the first episode of S2 and loves Tsubasa and Maria's duet.
Is he a vigger fan of Smugmaria or not suffering Tsubasa?
I think he preferred Maria in the episode.
He was excited when I told him that Hibiki was the same voice as Akira from VVV
Finished off season 1 last night
I had Fun with it
Enjoyed the music,
I feel as though the plot fell apart in the final episodes
will get to work on season 2 at some point in anticipation for s3
The plot was always silly and hardly important anyway.
S2 is pretty different in a lot of ways, don't expect a lot of drama like S1.
ok cool the whole hibiki miku break up/ get back together thing was pretty odd, I will admit. Especially within 1 or 2 episodes of each other. regardless, on to season 2
Yeah, that happens again. You could say it mirrors the first season though.
Your dad has good taste. Aoi Yuuki a best.
It's /a/ having shit taste. Again.
But really you should watch it and make up your own opinion of it. Take /a/'s "taste" (whatever that is, /a/ isn't a hivemind) with a grain of salt. I've gotten just as many bad recommendations as I have good from "/a/'s taste".
>you should watch it and make up your own opinion of it
Letting some faceless internet people tell you what to or what not to watch is silly.
The end-all-be-all answer. You might like it, you might not like it, and there's a good chance you'll disagree with at least half of the people you talk to about it
/a/ has shit tastes, but if you view it yourself, you can make your own judgment on the matter. Simple as that.
no big deal I guess. will definitely watch s2
listen to my soooooooooooooooong
Marathoned it myself, recently, and loved it. It's pretty stupid, though.
Anyway, what's up with Kanzanari's strength? Is he supposed to be God or something? Because that's what I got from Finé in S1.
>Is he supposed to be God or something?
He just eats, watches movies, and sleeps.
A true man needs nothing else!
Actually, whatshisname runs on water. I guess there doesn't need to be any more to it than that.
why do animu character's lips keep their outline while their mouth moves around and talks? This is bothering me now.
Symphogear seems to have this Rock-Paper-Scissors thing with
Symphogears > Noise > TRUE MENOgawa, Genjuuro, Miku > Symphogears
Hibiki need a man in her life, anyway
Hibiki's the man at work, wife at home
I thought we agreed on this
We did, but I still can't put Mikua t Ogawa or Genjuurou tier. It just feels so wrong.
It' been explained that Ogawa's a Ninja in the keywords, he has 2 brothers, the older one is the leader, the youngest is working in a host club.
>Someone got the joke
It wasnt funny
SHE BETTER GET A FUCKING NOTHER GEAR IN 3
Just bear in mind that S1 needs a bit until it picks up.
There're quite a few people who dropped it after S1 only to repick it up later and in the love it.
what episode is that shot from?
sorry, I meant to write Ep.1
I like the titties so far
Pretty good if not just for this one scene.
guy who made code lyoko worked on this
LISTEN TO MY SONG
There is nothing better than that.
that really really rumples my foreskin
I fucking hated that show. only for the art style but still
Thomas just designed background art in Symphogear though.
S1 was far better than S2, atleast in S1 up until the last few episodes, they didn't throw the script out the window and began dancing around while singing Trololololol.
In S2 they didn't have a coherent plot anymore and didn't care to follow the rules of the story (they themselves made).
Goddamn /a/, everytime I see her eyes I'm always reminded of that gif.
You've ruined me.
S1 had quite mediocre first half and amazing finale, while S2 was consistently good, heck, just getting better with every next episode with absolutely godly episode 10. The only problem with S2 I had was rushed final fight compared to S1. One more episode would make it so much better, we didn't even got an unique group song like First Love Song, only Vitalization.
Still, loved it, and if the rumors about bonus BD SoL episode is true, I will forgive G everything it did wrong.
Symphogear is either love it a lot or hate it.
It's probably my favourite new franchise of the 10's
I had mixed feelings about S1, but S2 is my 2013 AOTY. I hope they can still top it with S3.
I don't have it, but it's creepy with just both of her eyes and mouth.
The eyes separate as roaches
you asked for it
Not him but, can you please tell me what happens after? I only clicked on it a brief second once before, after they started crawling and closed the tab.
Official Twitter already announce it so it's not rumor
stop being a faggot and finish it
then watch the others ones
>while S2 was consistently good, heck, just getting better with every next episode
Sorry, but can't agree on that. Was fairly disappoint with S2, and every episode made it worse.
That whole episode was references to S1 and at least 3 we're references to Hibiki's Gekisou Gungnir.
They have to be retarded to miss them.
