Gonna skip this. Vividred Operation was fine as a cliche plot but really, there isn't anything else better to offer except for its FRIENDSHIP IS MAGICAL part. Symphogear + Symphogear G isn't any better but I've to admit the ludicrous plot and its dramatic action does make me smirk a little.

And the design for this looks pretty bad. So no.

You never know what to expect out of shows like these. I mean, it all sounds stupid, looks stupid, and ends up being stupid. But then there are cases like Symphogear that are almost the same, yet so awesome. Please make these girls dance or sing or something during action scenes! Become Symphogear!


This series is promoted as a surreal gag anime, not an action one.

What was that stuff towards the end like around 1:20 of the video? Looked like a video game...some sort of attempt at 3D? Anyways, not sure this is something I would like.


It seems this series is a 3D anime.

Looks like something I'd drop after one or two episode. Loli with eyepatch, blond with cat ears, and they all have nice bewbs?


Nice bewbs?? cool :3

We'll see, I don't like an all girl cast Anime, it depends.

Read the synopsis: "That sounds promising."
Opened the link and saw the character design: "That's how you destroy a show with potential."


I really wonder how one could make this synopsis more generic. It's so generic that it's not even able to "send humanity into despair" ― over how bad this is going to be.

Will watch for plot.

^^^^If you know what I mean.

Hoping for it to be at least decent.

It looks like it'd be hella better without the girls, but whatever.

Jan 13, 2014 7:59 PM by fueille

why are they always doing this crap? the humanity is in despair and on the brink of extension, luckily for them kawai girls in tight uniforms are here to save the day.. wow.

will try it and probably drop it.

I would expect a skin-tight battle armor, ridiculous sci-fi weaponry, pseudo-yuri relationship between the team leader and her second-in-command, a traitor heroine who gets redeemed with simple sob story, and training arc consisting of beach and bikini.

Other than that, i'm not looking forward to it.

hopefully there will be some good mecha

I love how all the character names are based in their colors, just like Vividred Operation, lol.

Will probably watch.
