For what purpose? Just because it's new doesn't mean it is better. The existing cast works perfectly fine.

Kirika/Shirabe can't just be replaced given their history over two whole seasons with linker. Maria is necessary for removing their dependance of it. Hibiki can't be replaced either since she wants to help people, including opponents, since season one. Chris is obviously not replaceable this season and Tsubasa will do her part with her 'grandfather'. All of them have reasons that originated in earlier seasons which can't just be made up with new characters. While I not entirely disagree with the idea that new things can bring a fresh wind, continuity has always been an asset to Symphogear rather than a bane.

Ep 6 and we already reached what's look like a final battle? isn't the pace to fast?
I hope the hype can still be maintained until the last half.

Ep 1-6 for me looks like followed the same formula/pattern as gx and kind like a compressed version of gx. Maybe we will get something incredible for the rest of episode.

To be fair the last boss is definitely Adam. The final battle isn't going to start until we see Adam and Tiki make their move against God. Heck last season had kind of the first round against the last boss in episode 6.

So far I'd say they are doing a good job with this season. A lot of work put in, but now the main cast are back to their full roster. Feels like Symphogear is back to itself. Have Hibiki trying to reach out to her enemy, but not getting stupid about it. She's more than willing to knock some heads around to get her point across . And we are keeping the character arcs differentiated enough.

Ep 5-6 is a Maria arc episode and is very well done. It would be cool to change up the duet songs.

Wait! Wait! Wait! Was Prelati just killed off that early? Also Hibiki's Gungnir trash from G is a key to Elfeinein's solution. Hibiki's pretty embarrassed. Germain just realize how ruthless is Adam in the end of the episode. I definitely like the Hibiki/Germain conversation, thou Germain still too dense. Germain truly underestimate Hibiki once again.

Chris calling the Gungnir fragments they're using to counter the Philosopher's Stone the "Fool's Stone" and everyone just going along with it was just priceless.

On the other hand, Shirabe and Kirika were bad kids who had the birdbrained idea to try and go IGNITE against Prelati in the first minute of the episode.

Maybe Tsubasa has the right idea here.

I don't think she was killed, but rather she was defeated and they had to retreat. Otherwise Adam's "pick one to kill off" wouldn't make much sense .

I did like the solutions they had in this episode. Taking advantage of the special connection between Kirika and Shirabe to draw out enough power to win even without Ignite. Plus actually doing something with the scabs/trash bits from the unison between Hibiki and Gungnir is a solid move. Turn something that nearly killed Hibiki into something useful.

Initially I did think it was a dumb move there by the two relying on Ignite. But, they did try something different in unleashing ranged attacks and thinking that might work. It didn't and was a bad move, but they are part of a reckless group. It was a situation where they were going to lose if the status quo remained so trying a long distance barrage before the anti-Ignite could kick in wasn't the worst plan ever. Not a good one, but I can at least see their reasoning.

This is probably the most beautiful piece of music I have yet heard come out of this franchise... which is saying something, because I love almost every song they come up with.

They really should have let Miku sing her ShenShou Jing activation, though. That incantation is rightfully hers.

With subs finally appearing for ep6 I'm back:

>Ver
>>>Ver
LARGER THAN THE EXTRA-HUGE FOOD CHALLENGE AT A RESTAURANT
Tsubasa's attacks are so funny to look at
splitter noise woo
Team Maria continues carrying the useless torch
Flipping Dr. Ver is more useful than Maria
Mom looked so sad when she hit us. But she still kept hitting us.
Elfnein fixed Linker in pretty much less than a minute ? ? ? ? ?
Mom was actually caring all along. What is this nonsense?
And of course it's because of LOVE. I still laugh every time I remember that scene in G
SHIRABE TRANSFORMATION SCENE and it's full of glorious yoyos. I might like this more than Chris'.
Shirabe's song is by far the best so far this season
Combination attack is back
The alchemists lost to two-thirds of team Maria. Are these villains for real?
new ED song~

After a couple rather flat episodes the action came back with a bang and I'm loving it.

Looking through the past episodes it isn't a focus this season has going. Rather than 'father issues' we're hitting more on the idea of choosing between two bad options. Chris chose that shooting off Stefan's leg was a lesser evil than letting him die. I tend to agree with that. Then we've got Nastassja hitting those kids in order to push them to continue the experiments/training so they don't "drop out" and probably get killed off. We are talking about a secret government organization that is capturing children for experiments. If they aren't useful....I don't see them being kept alive. That is something that can definitely be debated on. Maria's feelings at the end of it was that it was worth it. That they are alive because Nastassja was so hard on them. Honestly I'd rather never work in FIS than have to tackle any of the options the researchers had there. Try to blow the whistle and maybe get killed. Be nice to the kids, but ignore what happens to those that drop out. Or be hands on cruel and hope the emotional scars are worth their survival. All the options suck.

And that leads up to our main villains of this arc. Saint German is killing thousands and committing horrible acts. She's doing so because she thinks the greater evil is allowing the status quo to continue. That the moon system has to be shut down and humanity freed. If world peace can be attained by the deaths of a few tens of thousands is that worth it? Saint German seems to think so, but no surprise Hibiki and company don't tend to agree here.

At the very least we're looking at a more interesting theme than GX. How far can you go for the greater good? At what point does it become not worth it? This is very hardly the first show ever to tackle this idea, but I'm glad the show is at least tackling something interesting here.

Yeah, I tend to agree. Though in that sense I think they should have brought in Kanade's VA just to sing her Gungnir activation phrase. I get they wanted to just have active Symphogear users singing them for whatever reason and they had unison singing for those 'inactive' ones. Maybe they don't want to give false hope that Miku is going to return as a Gear user.

Just saw ep8. It's a Chris episode and a fracturing point of the Illuminati. We all KNEW this was gonna happen.

Chris was still upset with Sonia and Stephan. Sonia still live with letting Chris's parents die despite Chris getting over it. During the Alca Noise attack, Stephan stood up and inspire Chris to move forward. The Fool's Stone was for keeping Ignite up a running against the Lapis, however they had to work together to overpower the Lapis. Cagliostro is officially dead. Adam revealed that he had no need for Cagliostro or Prelati (he plans on disposing Prelati). Germain got screwed in the end (obvious).

I enjoyed Chris's part and glad that she finally got over her issue with Stephan. It seems that Cagliostro wasn't eavesdropping on Germain/Adam's conversation and doesn't trust Adam one bit. The Fool's Stone was for Ignite which is unexpected. I thought that we would an upgrade and get new designs of Symphogears. I wonder how is Germain gonna save Prelati. Germain should of really listened to Hibiki.

Its sad when you heard Cagliostro scream like that at the end, RIP. I believe s/he has already prepared to die for her partners if fail because Prelati was actually on the verge of being sacrifice also. Cagliostro a female character with male voice definately strike me the most in this season, heck fighting bear + love power! at that. Seriously, Cagliostro can fight.

I loved this week's episode. The whole training scene with Genjuro was hilarious, he is really an over powered character. I wonder if he was especially trained for Anti-Symphogear Combat.

The scenes with Chris and Sonia were nice too, but it looks like Shirabe and Tsubasa will be doing the duet song next week.

I didn't know Cagliostro was voiced by male seiyu. I couldn't tell until this episode. He kind of fit the character since Cagliostro was original male.

That was good fun. Genjuro really is a monster . Can't we just have him beat the stuffing out of Adam when the time comes? That training scene was good though. And I like how it isn't just a lucky break that the team was divided like it was. Instead Genjuro was looking ahead and wanted to have them work on being able to cooperate in any kind of pairing.

The resolution with Chris was good. True enough that sometimes you just need someone to step up. Stefan is a pretty emotionally strong kid, not going to let this drag him down. Although I still think Sonia's biggest failing wasn't what happened with the bombing, it was failing to keep Chris safe from the slavers she was captured by after that event. But such is. At least they are both looking ahead.

A pretty enjoyable fight as well against Cagliostro. Can't feel much sympathy with the amount of lives that person gleefully took. Not so much fun when your allies are on the chopping block eh Cagliostro? Thanks to the Fool's Stone they have unlocked Ignite and are back on track. I wonder if we'll even get another fight with Prelati who it seems Adam is going to sacrifice while the sacrificing is good. Guess Saint Germain should have reconsidered Hibiki's gesture...

Hibiki will never give up on Saint Germain. It's gonna take a lot to change her view.

Watched episode 6:

Maria and Elfnein being able to solve the Linker problem at last... hmm, so that's why Dr.Ver mentioned the word "love" plenty of times when he was still the main antagonist of the show.

And nice to see Maria being able to see her "mama" one more time, even if it's just in her memories.

I guess, for those of us who may have trouble watching it raw, we'll end up getting each new episode one week later than the rest.
Oh well, at least, it's better than being uncapable of watching it at all.
