This is so awesome, I was expecting it, but I'm still happy and surprised.

Me too. Actually I was lowering it a bit to "at least a movie sequel".
But no, it's a new serie. That's really rare for a show like this to get more than 3 seasons (being original anime and having unusual theme).

As original yes, but what probably helps is the music angle. Symphogear probably makes a lot of money off of the soundtrack. And it's not that an unusual concept. Anime is full of idol/music shows going all the way back into the 70s. In fact Sumphogear is pretty tame of the weirdness level of music/idol anime, lol.

I heard Carol's character song was quick to be sold out, so basically I thought they raked big cash from those songs so the made TWO seasons next.
And I thought Symphogear was already weird for normal people, it's not even that popular outside Japan actually.

Even Macross was well-known by so many people even though they weren't into idol stuff.
I mean, singing in outer space to humans and aliens alike, making aliens confused with lovey-dovey song, and win the war with it.
I mean... That's waaaay more weird for normal people, right?

Not to mention Macross' creator is the head of Satelight (the studio for infamous Macross, Aquarion and our beloved Symphogear).Submit Comment

Exactly Macross is pretty far out there. Though my pick for weirdness has to beAKB 0048. That featured idolvalhala, a guest appearance by what is clearly the Galaxy Express 999, and a tribute to the themes of Lenard Nimoy's favorite episode of Star Trek. I had no idea Carol's CD sold so well. I figure the 2 seasons will be a single story broken up into two 13 episode parts. A lot of shows have been doing that lately and I think would help a lot. I of course enjoyed season 3 but felt the character development was spread a little thin and the new season will be even worse with that now there are even more characters. So I'm really excited.

lol AKB0048, my senior said to me that he tried watching that and... he doesn't know what kind of words to say about his experience.
I didn't watch that one as I am actually not into real life idols (that anime of course based on the real life one), overly cute songs is not my thing.

I think it will be split into two different cours too. 13 episodes and give me more minor plot holes.

In my opinion, 3rd season was made for Maria and co's character development. As we can see 3rd season didn't gave much spotlight to the first team (which actually annoy me for a bit) but we can see Maria and co. are trying to live more than ex-prisoners also to be accepted and useful in the division.

Symphogear actually suffers from lack of time slot, as I am fond of 1 cour (13 -14 episodes) but sometimes they cannot jumble some important stuff into those short slots, resulting the staffs rushing on filling previous plot holes and stuff when moving into new arcs.

Yeah I liked Maria and Co's development in season 3. Hibiki's arc was really good and Tsubasa was decent. But Chris, poor, poor Chris. Her arc started out good, she's finally forgiven herself and wants to be a good Sempai. But she ends up holding herself too high a standard. Then the resolution sucked. And being a die hard Chris fanboy it was a big let down. Hopefully the next season will be better.

On other news, have you tried Jyougher yet? (That is what the new Sentai is called right?) I just downloaded the first 2 episodes and I'm gonna give it a try in the morning.

Same. Somehow the 1st team wasn't really gave me the awe since the 2nd team was in the spotlight.

As for Jyuohger, I didn't watch it yet, but my friends were ecstatic. I am currently watching unchecked old shows (trying Gekiranger and rewatching Sazer X because I forgot to watch the ending) right now, so I'll give Jyuohger a try when I have time.

If they find Shen Shou Jing's pieces from the bottom of the sea, maybe.

Knowing the piece of work that was Doc Ver, I find higly implausible that he has used ALL the Shen Shou Jing's pieces that he had at his disposal to create the Gear used by Miku/that was using Miku in G, so I think they will only have to search the wreckage of his mobile airbase.

Yeah, but even though Miku is actually not compatible with the relic, I doubt she'll use it again given a chance. Intensive drugging can make you more yandere than usual.

?_? IIRC Miku WAS a possible Gear User, but they had to drug her to hell and beyond so to make her more 'receptible' to the Relic Combat AI-like program and brainwash her into believing that beating the crap out of Hibiki was the best way to save her and stop her from fighting...

Is that so? I thought she can't even use even one gear except when drugged, basically she's fated to be like Kanade if she continues that method. 
I knew she was brainwashed anyway, but her compatibility is "forced". That's what I believe.

I knew they wouldn't leave GX's cliffhanger-ish ending that way.

I just got a idea! Why not make a picture of all the Symphogear users half naked to celebrated to new upcoming season?

I actually tried to draw one for the end of GX:

But I stopped halfway because it's too many lol.
Maybe I'll continue again later.
