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

My friends deem this unwatchable, and I don't blame them, nor would I anyone else who says it's unwatchable.
However I find it somehow enthralling. Something about the combination of the music and the fight scenes generates an exaggerated hype that I love.

There is lots of edge and qq, which would normally ruin a series, but its done in a way that either the scene can be skipped without missing anything important. Or it's so overdone that it's funny, using tropes like 'They are powered by friendship!'

The art style heavily reminds me of Megaman, while still being original.
The nameless villains look like some sort of ugly 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

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

Although macross is more set into space then Senki

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: 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.

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: Ga-Rei: Zero
Both begin with the ending, and the whole story afterward is a sort of flashback. Similar concept: a secret organization fighting against monsters, a team composed by two girls which have a friends-enemies relationship, lots of deaths and sad moments, due the troubled mind of the protagonists. 
reportRecommended by SanzuNoKawa
Anime: Black★Rock Shooter (TV)
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.
