Synopsis

Two years ago, a pair of idols, Tsubasa Kazanari and Kanade Amou, 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.

If you hate inconsistencies, stupid plot devices, a horribly flawed setting, and poor characterization, Senki Zesshou Symphogear is your worst nightmare.

The start of the series is deceptively good, we see a concert that's animated brilliantly, and we have a seemingly gritty story; we witness Kanade die in the past, and Miku crying over Hibiki's grave in the future. This image the anime painted itself in the first episode is one of the greatest deceptions I've witnessed in any form of media.

After the first episode, the animation quality drops dramatically, at times you wonder how the producers thought they could get away with it. Epitomizing this read more

since this was in storage for quite sometime i finally decided to watch and finished this anime. this is pretty much actiony, but at the same time, it have a pretty deep story to it, and is kind of entertaining, but for some is not. for people that love action, i think you guys may or may not like this anime, since the action isn't really that, cuz they focus more on the plot i would say..

story 8/10
started of pretty good on how they kind of went to the future, and then goes back to what happen to get there, like a lot of anime read more

Senki Zesshou Symphogear is an anime surrounded by music by Nana Mizuki (not only her, but a large part is). I gave an overall score of 8, which could come from my love for the music of Nana Mizuki, but I do believe there are serious flaws in this anime.

Story:
The story is the main flaw in Senki Zesshou Symphogear. I actually am impressed that they made an anime of 13 episodes which doesn't feel rushed even though quite some things happen. But the "why" in why are things happening is explained but when you hear it, it's kind of lame. Though the concept around read more

Despite a weak start and a weak team of writers, Symphogear still manages to be somewhat enjoyable if just for the absurdity of it all.

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to deliver the type of dark story we are shown in the first episode, rather the show is riddled with Dues Ex Machinas and plot holes. The characters and their backgrounds are written at a barely passable quality, but fortunately this seems to get better as the show goes on (except for the background characters who remain terrible the entire show).

Fortunately I found the music, gear design and battle scenes made up for the rest of the read more

Recommendations

Both fighting with the power of songs.

Although macross is more set into space then Senki
The genre for both is "pop idol". However, they both have action and sci-fi added in. Both Anime use bright colors and detailed art work. They also break from the norm.
Both shows have a joke-level "sci-fi" setting, which looks more like military mahou-shoujo. Both shows are focused on girl's friendship, befriending enemies and some shitty drama. The funny thing is that if Symphogear feels like a third-rate clone of Nanoha, than Vividred Operation feels like a second-rate clone of Symphogear. A profanation of the genre.
The main character in the series is very naive about the way the world works. The colors are bright and the creatures styles are not normal. The costume designs on the magical girl outfits are also quite elaborate.
As with the first installment, the second in the Polyphonica series relates to Symphogear in the music department. Both series use music as their source of power to fight.
Both involve epic action with young girls fighting using powers. Both involve tragedy and have that feeling of Sci-fi. Drama is also involved in the plot.
