The story for this show consists of various elements to achieve a sense of loss but then of gain from the viewer. It does seem to be a bit confusing at times with how much it jumps around the time line from present to past to present to past and so on so forth. Because of this I am forced to give the story an 8.
The art and animation are pretty good. Everything seems so soft and pretty until you get to the Noise monsters. They are so not kawaii at all and it feels like they don't belong! What were they thinking?! The concert looked okay but I would have preferred something more along the lines of a Glee concert ^_~. Art gets a 6, my favorite number! desu
Now sound, the most important part of this show because it seems to have a huge focus on music! I thought the lyrics in the song that Zwei Wing sang towards the beginning of the first episode were kind of cliche and lame. But then using songs to battle enemies in their robotic suits? Infinite Stratos (yay!) meets Macross (boo!). Sound gets a 5 from me! Too bad they don't do uber kawaii versions of known pop songs that have actual meaning to them! But maybe there will be better songs in the next 12 episodes, but who can say for sure? It's not like waiting to hear them to write my review is going to change anything! Wa ha ha!
Characters! Like I said before, Tsubasa and Kanade are awesome! Panty & Stocking who can sing and fight monsters are so awesome! But the main character girl, whatever her name is ( I could easily look it up but I'm too lazy teehee), she seems pretty average. Nothing special about her except that she's dead or something. But not. It's so confusing all this jumping around through time! I'd rather watch The Girl Who Leapt Through Time! Characters gets a 9 out of 10!
This series seems to be chock-full of sorrow and loss and dark humor. Lots of people start dying all the time and cry a lot. A couple of the songs were pretty sad too. So I'd have to say that this show will be a very sad one and not enjoyable at all. Everyone knows that if the first episode of a show is bad, the entire show is bad (Bokurano = PROOF)!. 3/10 for enjoyment!
Overall I will have to give this show a 9! The characters are clearly the best part, and that can be said about any show! That's the most important part! Not the story, and clearly not the art or sound. If you have good characters, anything becomes good! Overall I shall give Senki Zesshou Symphogear a 7!

It's obvious that even though there is to be a love triangle going on, Kaito will fall in love with the blue haired girl (because the red haired girl is from space and will have to leave by the end of the show). The shy hot girl will fall for the hot guy with glasses, and Lemon will be left to wallow in pity for eternity. I already feell like I've known Lemon my entire life and for this I have rated the story a 6.
In terms of art and animation I feel that these are very important aspects to anything. That's why I don't watch anything older than 5 years old because animation quality suffered greatly due to technology being very bad. The very simplistic style of the art helps improve the smoothness of the animation making it seem more realistic. In addition, the opening and ending sequences aren't that good. I am giving the art a 9.
Next is sound. If you have ears this will be an easy show to appreciate. I made sure to turn off my monitor while I watched the first episode (the only episode out) again and it was just a whole new experience for me. I felt like I was there with the characters. But the song for the opening is bad and the ending one is okay. I gave sound a 5.
Now we have come to characters. The main character looks exactly like Jinta from Ano Hana. This makes me believe that this is just a parallel universe from that show. The red haired girl, Ichika, shares a name with the male protagonist from Infinite Stratos. I would like her to make me eat it, if you know what I mean. She also has large breasts which is good for any female character in any kind of show. I don't really like the blue haired girl or Kaito's sister. She seems like a tramp. I give the characters an 8.
I kind of enjoyed watching this show while I did. Especially when I turned my monitor off. So I'm giving it a 10.
Overall I think this is a very good show. They should have picked better songs for the opening and ending sequences though. Some people may think that one episode isn't enough to really go on for reviewing and judging a show (or anything for that matter). But that's all bull poopy. You can easily tell that this show may or may not be the best show of 2012 (or even of all time). So if you enjoy watching anime, I would recommend this show to you for sure. If you don't like watching anime, then you may or may not want to watch this show or read anime reviews.
6 is my favorite number so I am going to give this show an overall rating of 6. Now I feel content with this show in its entirety and don't have to watch the remaining 11 episodes that have yet to air. My duty to my fellow anime watchers is now complete for today!
Oh, and by the way, read the plot synopsis. It's at the top of the page for this show. You don't have to read the synopsis' that other people write in their reviews because people's opinions are like, just their opinions man. read more
