THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Thank goodness Tsubasa has the support of her friends like Hibiki, Chris, etc. She seems to be doing better mentally now since some of the shit she's been through this season.

It seems this episode is setting up for the final few episodes. I'm glad to see everyone's on the same page now. Action is the usual fighting with fast paced combat and flashy moves.

Oh, good God. The episodes are getting better and better.
The animation, the quality of it and even the twin-singing of Shirabe and Kirika and they transformations... Never get enough of it. Totally hyping here.

Also let's go to space now! It's nice that even they think it's ridiculous when they left Earth!

Keep in Mind that Miku-God said that her power is currently 1/10000 of a Single Percent fo her original self, and yet the sliver of power she gave Noble Red allowed them to go from being worffed all the time by the symphogears to actually overpowering the Symphogears as they are in the current season and requring to use the better version of the Ignite Module in their Amalgalm forms to actually win.

Think about it.

This episode was Thrilling with a capital 'T' from start to finish!

I'm not even disappointed that the Reds are still alive with the explanation given and the effect it had on them. They are now complete monsters, their dream is DEAD, and the Cyborg (Or is it Android now? How does one "complete" a cyborg?) is very clearly going off the deep end because of it.

The fight between the Werewolf and the Zababa Duet was Magnificent as well! Every other second, it escalated all over again, and I loved every bit of it!

Interesting that Shem-ha brought Yggdrasil into this considering their origin lies in Judaism rather than Norse Mythology. I'm also very curious about just how badly Shem-ha's words might be getting twisted through the Curse of Balal - they keep bringing up how inconvenient it is, so I wonder what they're REALLY trying to say in all these moments

Yggdrasil looks like a Demon Pillar from FGO and the naming doesn't make any sense since Shem-Ha has nothing to do with Norse mythology, Noble Red came back way too quick and their power up was insane, also that symbol on their forehead looks like a Geass. And it looks like I was right about Airgetlám playing a big role in this season since Shem-Ha recognized it (inb4 it's somehow a divine relic).

What a best way to end the series than with a battle on the Moon?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO THEY STOLE MY IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Ok they actually didn't since it would have been planned out) But I am currently making a fan-fiction that involved Yggdrasil and Symphogear literally just introduced that. FUCK. (I'll just continue with my original plan regardless since I planned it out beforehand)

Well.................this episode I have mixed feelings about.


Lets start with stuff I didnt like so we can end on a good note.

Firstly of course Noble Red is back. There was no way Symphogear would do something interesting like kill them off to prove a point at how powerful the divine power was. Also they're now cocky AF and its REALLY pissing me off. They were already annoying to begin with but now they're 100x worse. I really hate Vanessa now as well with her going bloody mental. I got to see them all cry in despair though so that was nice and amusing. Sadly this means that they're definitely gonna do the whole redemption thing again...........................huuuuuuuuuuh. Yep should have expected this. (Ok whatever its their series they can do what they want with it.)

Another thing Im not liking is the comedy. Not that its bad just kind of unnecessary. Like does XV want to be a dark season or a normal one ?? Pick one please!! The tonal shifts in XV have been my big major thing that has annoyed the hell out of me. One episode its normal Symphogear, the next its bloody concert to change the atmosphere, straight after that back to normal. Like......really?

Im probably the only one who genuinely finds this annoying since I know Symphogear fans just take everything and dont think about it. I probably should do the same.

Now for the positives. OMG SHEM HA IS SOOOO COOL!!! Getting to finally see Shem Ha have conversations and stuff is such a treat. She's so cool. I like the fact that Miku's hair is sort of to the sides now to change it up for Shem Ha. So Shem Ha has the ability to make others more powerful, interesting. We saw her combat power and it was awesome. Shem Ha is BY FAR the most interesting villain Symphogear has had since Fine and she's probably my new favourite villain. Now they have shown that Shem Ha does have an original body which I very much like. This opens up the possibility of getting a HibiMiku combo attack against the real Shem Ha later on.

But OMG THAT TSUBASA AND HIBIKI SCENE. The original two Symphogears holding hands and making up is such a good sight. XV has been making way too many nods to previous seasons but this one was beautiful. Also this means Tsubasa's suffering is now over so good for you Tsubasa fans.

I'm really glad that the preview image of Chris was just a split reaction and not a full on comedic scene cause XV is not going for that tone. Seems Kirika and Shirabe will never get that individual character development that we saw in G, such a shame. I can see them being interesting on their own but the series LOVES to glue their bodies together. (We better get a HibiMiku duet with the amount of stuff these two get)

So Maria's thing is getting a bit of monologue from Shem Ha. We got to see Shem Ha laugh and smile which was BEAUTIFUL. So Maria has some sort of link to an ancient faction of sorts, ok as long as its not divine power Im fine with Maria getting whatever. (Note: I dont like Maria so thats why I REALLY dont want her getting divine power)

So they're on the moon now. Kind of expected to be honest so not much to say on that matter. I just love that we're finally properly focusing on Shem Ha now.

Ok there is one point that I should give praise for Symphogear. They actually killed that father. I genuinely thought from the previews that they could just heal him up from the way they were carrying him, but no. They actually went through with it so that deserves praise. Im so used to Symphogear reversing stuff it does so its nice to see them go through with something. Good job Symphy.

Thats about my entire thoughts on the episode. Im sure everyone loves reading my negative parts XD. Cause I know the Symphogear community takes criticism lovely.

Overall pretty decent episode thought it would be worse but it pleasantly surprised me.

Great Episode overall another satisfying fight from the start and end, showcasing Kiraka and shirabe's Unison song and unveiling of Noble Reds new weaponry and leading up to a Cliffhanger.

soo good, was not even the little bit surprised that Noble Red was back we all thought Big sis would be since she was mainly a robot but i knew it didn't make sense to just end them off after building them up this whole season.



But were're going to the MOTHERFUCKING MOON BABY lets go

I see that people are gonna complain about the "going to the moon" thing, but that's the source of everything that started the conflict. It was inevitable.

That feeling when my two favorite girls got their Amalgam forms, though.

Those the same ones that are mad because the top 10 anime shows like FMAB and Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu are voted down by just 0.01, so they try to retaliate and shit xD

P.S. I think it also had to do with the Geass-like symbols that Noble Red obtained, but I saw no problem with that xD

Seriously I wanted Millaarc dead first, second Fudo and now Shem Ha, what's going on in my mind XD?! Also Millaarc, why are you still alive?!

Jokes aside this episode was a really vibration in my head when I watched it.

For example I was saying "thank you for killing Millaarc" but no, she make it their subordinate.

I don't know if I love or hate Shem Ha because her plan is "going back to prehistoric era" seriously I think is ridiculous but it's a God, so can be?

The first interaction between this God and God reminds me of the Babylonien mythos because by the fact that Shem Ha knows Enki by seeing Marias Airgetlam, it can be that it is Enlil, Enkis Brother.

Symphogear again mixed mythology, how she knows about Yggdrasil?! Well who cares.

I was wanted for Shirabe and Kirikas duet and man, it was awesome, their amalgam form has a very cool design.

Well Noble Red, you're a real monsters now, ugh I think I was gonna hate Vanessa but no like this.

Now our girls are in the moon, yay!

I hope for Chris and Maria to get their amalgam form.

What a great episode. I thought Millaarc going to die at first. I think those Noble Red will ended up dying by sacrificing themselves for greater good.

Ever since the moderators close the report threads on bots,the amount of dupe has increase significantly. Mo Dao Zu Shi also suffer from 1 out of 10 scores from duplicate account especially from Vinland Saga fans. With Symphogear make it as one of the top airing anime this season, it receives haters attention just like Mo Dao Zu Shi.

I stand corrected, then. It’s probably salty Vinland or Kimetsu fans giving 1/10 to this season. And that’s sad cause I actually do really enjoy Vinland Saga.

It’s sad, honestly. If MAL doesn’t find a solution to such toxicity soon, it’ll affect far more than just a few seasonal shows.

Iguchi putting her voice acting to work with Shem-ha...

Shem-ha resurrected Noble Red and put them under her control I assume?

Well the Alca-noise sure came in quick...

"B-Style Massive Tri-circle". I was waiting for Shirabe to do a "Walk the Dog" style attack.

What's Vanessa doing with a tape measure installed in her body?

Holy crap Elza's wolf armor looks dope.

We Beyblade now.

Get caught in a bear trap!

They're on the moon? THEY'RE ON THE MOON!? Ok...we know that Shem-ha has two of those teleporter vials. One was used to get to the moon. Now...given that we have only three episodes left, and the gears are on the moon, we already know how this is going to end. All we need to know is that the gears have to get back to Earth. Think about it...

For a moment, I thought we could get a Symphogear movie for the Moon battle, but the after credits scene killed my hopes.

I guess this is the end.

Tsubasa is determined to get back Miku. Sad that she was not even able to attend her dad's funeral..

Old man seems to be in solitary confinement. He'll probably go crazy there.

Battle with improved Noble Red next week. Can't wait! :)

Nope each and everything is getting attacked. The popular one survive because of more voters. 1's are too much on Vinland anime, other anime , berserk manga , other manga etc. As I checked ratings the bots are attacking many franchises. It's just that if the show has big follow base the more hard to decrease it's score.

Bleh they made Noble Red come back... not surprising i guess, but whatever...

Shirabe's transformation still the sexiest〜
Not often enough that anime give fanservice emphasis on the subtle curves of small girls :3
She's always been bestgirl for me, followed by Chris.

I agree with you, like it's had so many intense hype epic, hard hitting moments, but just fumbles the follow through hardcore.

Isn't that kind of the point of Symphogear? It's hype, it's absurd, it's awesome, it's stupid, it's campy as fuck, but honestly who cares lmao! Only complains i have is missed opportunities; doing absurd nonsense within the vague confines of the original premise is what we are all here for.

DarknessReality said:

Only downside with Shem-Ha is all we have is that she's just a super-goddess being with an arbitrary set of powers... The motives are pretty ambiguous and stage-play-like. That said, Shem-Ha does have the most "i'm an epic powerhouse you shouldn't have awakened and now i'm going to wipe the place clean" attitude as opposed to some random dumb domination plot or psychotic experiment.

Weaponized lesbians! But yeah, there's just not enough runtime for character development with how much action they want to pack in.

The moon foreshadowing was way too heavy-handed, it was obvious that the rocket was gonna fail (as if nameless people would be successful at anything), and they were gonna end up going to the moon one way or another.

It felt really disingenuous, as it just happened quickly and moved on, as if it were just being used as an edgy plot gimmick for Tsubasa...

I hoped for better, but oh well, it's not my story.

Technically, all the mythologies tell the same story: a long-form analogue for experiences, accumulated, and told in different ways through means of personification, symbolism etc, and reinterpreted over time. I sincerely doubt Symphogear is that enlightened though hahaha

The moon foreshadowing was way too heavy-handed, it was obvious that the rocket was gonna fail (as if nameless people would be successful at anything), and they were gonna end up going to the moon one way or another.

Ok there is one point that I should give praise for Symphogear. They actually killed that father. I genuinely thought from the previews that they could just heal him up from the way they were carrying him, but no. They actually went through with it so that deserves praise. Im so used to Symphogear reversing stuff it does so its nice to see them go through with something. Good job Symphy.
It felt really disingenuous, as it just happened quickly and moved on, as if it were just being used as an edgy plot gimmick for Tsubasa...

Overall pretty decent episode thought it would be worse but it pleasantly surprised me.
I hoped for better, but oh well, it's not my story.

Symphogear again mixed mythology, how she knows about Yggdrasil?! Well who cares.
Technically, all the mythologies tell the same story: a long-form analogue for experiences, accumulated, and told in different ways through means of personification, symbolism etc, and reinterpreted over time. I sincerely doubt Symphogear is that enlightened though hahaha


At this point I'm not expecting anything from XV since my only point of interest, Miku's "feelings", have literally just been revealed to be the boring route of "I shouldn't have invited you to the concert" instead of feelings of love or something impactful.

Overall think this season wont be ranked very high with my Symphogear ratings. S1 and S2 were better.
Yuritopia FTW!!!!!!!!! BANZAI TO YURI !!!!!!!!!!!!
