It's highly ironic that my most recent review was for Sakura Taisen: Gouka Kenran. At first it may seem that the two shows have very little in common aside from involving the supernatural and artistic performances. This isn't where the similarity ends though, as both Gouka Kenran and Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S suffer from almost exactly the same problems, and for almost identical reasons.

The first series followed the lives of the employees of the Tsuge Divine Music Players Office, in particular, Tatara Phoron and his contracted spirit Corticarte Apa Lagranges (Corti). Crimson S, on the other hand, sets out to show how Phoron and read more

For me this was an up and down show. It had great moments and then it had the terribly boring moments. The battles in this show were ok but the final battle, forget it. Yea one little shocking thing but it all lasted about oh ... 4 seconds.

The music was great especially the primary song sung at the begginging and the end. The violins were also my favorite.

There was only one character in this show with comic reliefe. It kept things relaxed at times but some of it was a bit dry.

Overall it is not bad, but I would not call it good either.

Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica S was a surprising anime to me. I mean normally fantasy and music doesn't mix well together, but I feel like this show did it right.
At first the story may be seem like a typical school that takes place in a fantasy world, but eventually, this story develops into a love story between Phoron and Corti. Which I really enjoyed. I give the story an 8
The show has surprisingly good art considering the time it came out. Every character has a unique look to them even the Yugiri twins have their own distinct look to them but I read more

Anime: Senki Zesshou Symphogear: Meteoroid-Falling, Burning, and Disappear, Then...
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 are about humans being able to control spirits to fight for them.

Anime: Kiniro no Corda: Primo Passo
Both of them have music and fantasy creatures that love music. Also the main characters can't play music and have to try harder in order to find the correct way of playing music.

Anime: Shakugan no Shana
If you liked Polyphonica, you'll probably like Shana too. They are both very similar animes, although they have their differences too. Although, the main characters of both have crimson hair. LOL. And have the same kind of temper. Tsundere.

Anime: Mashiro-iro Symphony: The Color of Lovers
Both of these animes deal with a main guy and how well he is doing at school along with the girls he is with.

Anime: Ookami to Koushinryou
Both have mystical beings. Horo is high-classed so is corticarte
