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.

ok, first of all. watch this one first. if you're going to watch the other Polyphonica anime, brace yourself to be disappointed. this one is good, Diomedea did a great job. Ginga Ya that did the other anime... bleck! :-P
story, great! it drags here and there but there's an overall plotline that moves through the episodes.
art, good! very good! it's bright, it's sharp, it's up to par with 2009 and later shows. plus it's DEFINITELY better than the other Polyphonica title.
sound! woah! instrumentals are stupendous. the 'mood tunes' for scenes don't overwhelm the 'battle songs'. Phoron's 'La Luna Mysteriosa' has a stupendous falsetto read more

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
