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 action-y, but at the same time, it has a pretty deep story to it, and is kind of entertaining. For people that love action, I think you guys may or may not like this anime, since the action isn't really the main focus, 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 I know. It read more

What a mind-blowing anime. Every bit of goodness packed in about 30 minutes of futuristic action packed visuals, eardrum blowing sound and a story that, so far looks to be heading to the right direction for one of the most viewed, most popular, eyes popping anime of the year. Fanboys rejoice, even though its only the first episode thats currently out I can already tell that this is chuck full with allot of emotions that will make you cry both for tears of joy and sadness (I had water in my eyes throughout the whole episode). The gods of anime have answered my prays and read more

I'll be honest, this is probably what I've been most psyched for this season besides Nisemonogatari and I'll tell you why.

Magical Girl meets Gundam meets The World Ends With You.

Okay so maybe the ties to TWEWY are in the enemy designation only, (They're called Noise in case you hadn't guessed) but I stand by Magical Girl Gundam, even if I wasn't sure of the comparison at the beginning of the show, by the end with that 3rd transformation sequence, I was more than convinced as the parts for her suit grew out of her body.

The show starts off with a flash forward, before coming back read more

Anime: AKB0048
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.

Anime: Macross F
Both fighting with the power of songs.

Although macross is more set into space then Senki

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
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. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Anime: Vividred Operation
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.

Anime: Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S
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. 
reportRecommended by foxrain
Anime: Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou
People compare Gen'ei to Madoka, but honestly, it reminds me more of Symphogear. Cute girls with cute character designs must fight evil beings that live in their world. Both are more violent than the premise and art would suggest. The plot is much closer to sci-fi/fantasy than "magical girl".
