In a way it was worse than the previous season, but in a way it was better. Carol was certainly ten times more interesting than the mad scientist (why in the nine hell did they even have to bring him back and try to ridiculously redeem him is beyond me), but the absolutely awful, cringworthy melodrama probably surpassed Okada Mari herself and that's quite an achievement. I only hope that the next two seasons won't be peppered with Hibiki angsting some more, I wish we could just throw her the hell out of the crew. A generous 4/10.

I just marathoned this from the first season. Apparently 4th and 5th are already confirmed(split cour?).

This show reminds me of Nanoha, makes new friends every season :D

I like the autoscorers especially Garie. I hope they will be resurrected next season..

There're many unexplained things in the anime but they're explained in the specials. I didn't even realize that Tsubasa was already graduated if I don't watch the specials..
There's explanation about Chris' altar too and why her song lyric has buddhist thing in it. So I suggest everyone to watch the specials too :)

Just marathoned this entire series over the course of a week or two and I'm glad I got into it. The music is just...omg glorious. Anyways, the finale was about as on point as expected it to be though I have to admit that G was better than GX. Idk why but it felt like the development for all of the characters were rushed. Each one had an issue of internal conflict come up in an episode then they just overcome it toward the end. I mean...development wise for the characters, they could have changed that up but I digress. Can't wait for the next two seasons.
Don't believe the hype.

9/10 strong finish, except for Hibiki losing her entire development from last season it was great :)

Carol powers up and makes a lion zord XD
But the X drive is too much for her as Hibikis' fist triumphs.
Carol is still alive but with amnesia and then she takes the dying Elfnein's memories? :O
Trouble stirring up in Europe and Hibiki trying to get her parents back together :)

what a terrible season

-that piece of shit hibiki dad doesn't deserve anything, and everything about him get 'solved' in such a shit way
-hibiki and chris become really emo and annoying
-there is no focus at all. all 6 mc have no presence and importance whatsoever, beating whoever the villain of the week each episode.
-terrible 1-man villain that we have 0 interaction with, and her 4 soulless henchmen, i don't know if i can even call them a character
-really boring meaningless episodic and repetitive until the final battle
-tension getting from 0 to 100 way too fast. those repetitive episode involve absolutely nobody except our protagonist, but in final battle suddenly the entire world is at stake lol

fortunately the final battle with upgraded god cloth is good as always and of course there is best hero Sugita to save the world and the anime. and bouncing, touching boobs. and lesbian stuff.

well, as long as they still give good songs, nana mizuki and bolder lesbian stuff I'll keep watching

Hey guys check my profile for current airing season anime recommendation (guaranteed best taste)

OMG SO MUCH POWER~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carol Burn So much Memory and Unleashed So much Power after another... Refusing to back down no matter what. The Fight Really Looks like A last Boss Fight Alright!.

I've Played Super robot wars Games And this IS Basically How it goes down Even in the Anime...

All teams takes out Minions. Checked!

Boss Summon one Last Showdown (a very Intimidating Looking Beast). Checked!

Everyone Beats the Hell Out of it To lower it's HP. Checked!

In Half Hp The Boss Throws out a Strong attack. Since it's Morale is MAX. Checked!

Bring On the Main Character Of The Series For the Final Attack. Checked!

Everyone Giving Their Power to Hibiki And She Creates!!!! Her ARM GEAR which is A FKING GIGANTIC GAUNTLET!! (no Surprise there).

Even After All Her power are Burn What She Summon Will blow Up the Place within 12 Kilometer.( She Totally not going down that easily for a boss which is entertaining until the end).

Through she came Back Looking for Elfnein Cause that's who she sees. Forgotten Her Revenge and Her purpose... Fuse with the Dying girl And Becomes Whole ...

This Story is weird here but I'm going with this flow alright... Power makes people go Crazy... 8/10 For For Lovable Characters. Maria Is My favorite in term of Development.
Front Hooks...Oh yeah...

I'm very torn on what rating to give this anime.

On the one hand, the quality has improved by leaps and bounds. The animation, voice, songs have all gotten better.
On the other hand, the story follows the same pattern of "Stubborn teenage girl with issues hating Hibiki. HIbiki getting emotionally tortured an entire season. Hibiki gains a new friend(s)"

It's becoming harder and harder to watch them unfairly torture Hibiki over and over. What's more, it's getting old. As I move onto season 4 and 5, I have to wonder if the staff will continue with the same format. With another new girl with some daddy/mummy issues hating on Hibiki and emotionally torture her, again.

Going back to this before Season 5 leaves me appreciating it a lot more. There is no doubt that GX has a fair amount of flaws. The second half got too repetitive at times and honestly the less I ever see of Hibiki's father again the better.

But it also surpasses the other seasons in a few areas. Carol is the best villain of the series thus far. In a sense she is Fine done right. Season 1 was great in a lot of ways, but it didn't do a great job developing the villain. Carol was established early and throughout was shown to be on top of things. Ver was a fun and crazy villain, but he's not exactly that deep. Carol manipulated everyone through the whole story. She stumbled just enough to seal her own defeat. Not realizing the impact her suicide was huge. Of course part of that plays into Hibiki's character. Because she's not the type to kill her enemies that forced Carol to end her own life to advance her plan.

Her motivations worked while making her a terrible person. She lost her father in a horrific situation. The rage and desire for revenge mixing up with her intense desire to fulfill what she believed to be her father's last wishes. That she stayed a child for much of the show fit. She never could truly grow up or find her own place in the world. And when her father's task was taken all she had was blind rage. Hibiki may have saved her body, but Carol destroyed herself. What was left to meet with Elfnein wasn't Carol. It was just a shell.

The first half of the show just flows really well. The main cast are at a high point and in a sense their world is at peace. The Noise are gone and the Symphogear users can essentially live their own lives with being rescue workers on the side. And then they just get kicked around for the first few episodes. This was a case unlike when Maria's team arrived where they truly felt at a disadvantage. Maria's team was problematic because they could run away and stay hidden. But the autoscorers and the new Noise could kill the main cast if they wanted.

We even get a nice resolution for Maria's arc in S2. She accepts her flaws and weaknesses instead of just trying to be who she isn't. Besides Carol I'd say Maria had the best overall arc.

The season had plenty of stumbles. They didn't need to get weird with Tsubasa's backstory and everyone didn't need some emotional mini-arc before using their Ignites. Tsubasa and Chris already used them to fight Carol. They could have kept the main plot going and have them more quickly clean up their fights.

But overall I'd say this was a great season for the show. Introducing alchemy gave the show some more life and Carol was outstanding as the main threat. I'll take the lows of this season since the highs were worth it.

GX is the "Mahou Shoujo Incident"
It's on the pre-air poster

Then they messed up? They clearly said a Mahou Shoujo incident in might mean actual magic, Alchemy=/=Magic

Guess the hype for this show was worth after all. XD

Also, it was like yeasterday it seemed like when this show got me into watching it. <3
