Morita-san wa Mukuchi, it's from the second season episode where she's got a cold and her mother is asking her what she'd like to eat, to which she answers using the pillows.

This series truly is a breath of fresh air. While the mecha battles may not be as flashy as other series, its still pretty griping due to how unorthodox Madoka's fighting style is. It was great how she spent the majority of the battle trying to prevent damage to the city as well as protecting its inhabitants.

So Muginami is a princess hmm, atleast im assuming that remark about the princess was refering to her.

It looks like Lan's got alot of fans. Cant blame anyone, she is so f'ing cute & adorable, probably my fave character for this season so far. Almost had the same reaction as mangatron when Izo grabbed her Vox. On one hand its like "how dare he & without my or Madoka's permission" but on the other its totally understandable.

Array thinks his buddy was downed underwater when in fact he was German supplexed and lost consciousness ending up a prisoner of Earth.
Perhaps. But if the Vox robots have bonded with their pilots, that means that only the pilots they bonded with can control them. Kirius and Array would be unable to pilot the Vox robots even if they want to.

It can also be argued that a purer something is, the easier it is to corrupt or taint. Iím wondering if this is the case here.

Honestly speaking, I didn't see any reason for either of the girls to exhibit any form of killing intent; all they needed to do was either beat their opponents into submissions or simply scare them off.

<--- still a bit confused about the "plot" LOL

From the summary, it's suppose to be something about fighting "space invaders"... but those "space invaders" looks just like regular humans piloting Robots too...
BTW, I wonder if they'll ever say anything about how those robots like Vox came to be... (cause they were just there from the beginning... did they build it? or did it also came from outer space?) Donno....

About that it'll be revealed eventually.

Presently there are two factions fighting. One got first dibs making an alliance with Earth.

But this isn't the front line. Moid promises reinforcements would come once they've won. That's isn't very reassuring... It sounds like they are the loosing side.

Here in Lagrange, it was a constant focus for Madoka, and I think that adds a welcomed dash of realism to everything that is going on, making it more immersive. As upbeat as Madoka is, there's still a down-to-Earth quality to her in that she never loses sight of "the little guy" or what she is fighting for in a practical sense. It makes for a neat contrast between her and the more proud and vaguely aristocratic male antagonists that she fights against. Madoka comes across as a warrior of the people whereas they come across as having a certain air of nobility to them.
She's indeeda clear contrast to the boys, wh have a haughty and arrogant air to them, and they didn't care about the town (and the people in it) getting destroyed either, despite pretending to "mean no harm".

This turned out better than expected for me as well. Symphogear has also surprised me, but quite opposite to this, only in a very bad way. I don't like getting massively trolled, right in the first episode even

Yes and no. It's a planned split cour, so both halves should be viewed as a cohesive whole, even if they're split by a few months.

It's months. The first season and the second will only be separated by a one-cour (three month) break, and then the action starts back up again.

Episode 3:

- Kirius mistaking Madoka's reckless move to try and catch the blade twice as some Earth ritual was cute. Nearly as FOB as Ichika from AnoNatsu.

- I laughed at the "Madoka and Lan holding hands among a midst of sparkles" scene. It was both cliche and kind of adorable at the same time.

- Animation continues to be solid. The robots are very sleek and pretty, If I had any minor gripe its that the scenery can stand to improve a bit. Not asking for Star Driver but its been a little plain so far.

- Episode was very much enjoyable. Madoka continues to talk too much but she's still very likeable. The foundation for the series has pretty much been laid, and I'm excited to see where this is going next.

- Really like the Misaki Kurehito endcard. Too bad she isn't more prolific.

An unexpectedly good show (the title is totally misleading). The fanservice is somewhat out of place though. There is no plausible reason Madoka's uniform has to be so exposed.

Madoka is the best female mecha lead since Noriko. That's really all I have to say.

Nah, IMHO, the fanservice is kept at a proper amount, rather than at over-the-top quantities.

the way this show is, fanservice doesnt ruin it, hell the only fanservice ive seen so far is in the 1st episode.

I am hoping for more Yuri though or at the bare minimum some MadokaxKirius moments.

Anime without romance seems really flat and boring to me

The director has stated there'll be no romance,only thing you might get is yuri undertones so keep your yuri goggles on because you're going to need them.

I didn't say the fanservice is too much though. I said it is out of place.

Fan service leads to blushing leads to yuri and yuri leads to the dark side.
