Symphogear is the best anime ever made. Exploring such themes as language barriers, the meaning of heroism, Confucianism, and the birth of Christ, it is truly a deep and multilayered anime, the likes of which no one has ever seen before.

Jokes aside, Symphogear's basic premise is that the characters must sing to battle monsters - as such, there's a wide variety of music to enjoy, sung by an all-star cast of famous singers. And Aoi Yuuki, who is there. In addition, it has an A-list staff, such as the guy who wrote Wild ARMS and the guy who created Code Lyoko. Yes, seriously.



Symphogear: Meteroid Falling, Burning, and Disappear, then... Is the first season of Symphogear. High school student Hibiki Tachibana attends a concert by her favorite Idol duo, Zwei Wing - but when mysterious monsters called Noise attack, Hibiki is granted a power she could never have imagined...



Symphogear G: In the Distance, That Day, When the Star Became Music... is the second season of Symphogear. Three months after the events of Season 1, things seem to be back to normal - until a mysterious group declares war against the entire world. Hibiki and her friends are forced to confront not only rival Symphogear wielders, but the fact that their actions may have had more consequences than they realized...



Symphogear GX: Believe in Justice and Hold a Determination to Fist is the third season of Symphogear. Believe in Justice, and Hold a Determination to Fist.



Symphogear AXZ: By Shedding Many Tears, the Reality You Face is... is the fourth season of Symphogear. Only weeks after the events of GX, Hibiki Tachibana was fighting hand-to-hand with the most supreme enemy known to man, and barely managing to hold it back. That enemy was none other than summer vacation homework. But of course the longer those fabulous and wonderful days continued, the bigger the debt she would eventually be forced to pay back became. The later half of summer vacation, and the eventual restart of her school days. This is where the curtain rose on Hibiki's new battle...



Symphogear XV: Create a history, with the light God could not know is the fifth and final season of Symphogear, set to air in July.

Aw man, this is the last season?

I guess it's good when things end rather than continue forever. But I would be down for Symphogear lasting until the end of time.


E: Also Hibiki the best.

The description for the youtube video says it's the 'conclusion,' and a lot of the higher level staff have either said they want to move on (Kaneko's wanted to make a new Wild Arms forever and he's said he doesn't want Symphogear to be the rest of his life) or have already moved on (Thomas Romain, the Code Lyoko guy who does all the Noise designs and backgrounds, only had an supervisory role on AXZ and has left Satelight to, I believe, form a studio of his own.)

There might be more Symphogear after this, since it's a successful franchise that you could easily repurpose to have a different cast while still using the same premise, but it's definitely gonna be the end of this story.

I guess it's ok if it results in a new Wild Arms.

One thing I liked about AXZ, it had the cliche where the antagonists attack saying they are going to get rid of the protagonists only to retreat after a short battle without finishing off anyone. But it worked because they also showed that the Symphogears were flat out more powerful and better fighters once they got going. Once that initiative bonus wears off the Symphogears will kick pretty much anyone's poo poo in, which is why as soon as the Illuminati didn't retreat they got their poo poo kicked in every time.

It took the prospect of there being a potential final season and just not having a lot I wanted to watch at the time but I'm real, real glad I was able to churn through all of the seasons ahead of this. G was my favorite season and all of the girls are the best, but especially Chris and Kirika when she's chuuni.

Chris and Maria are my favorites because they have the best dynamics with the rest of the cast and Heavy Arms and Tallgeese III are cool.

Chris has always been my favorite since I love her interactions and anyone who’s fighting style consists of “shoot nonstop and spam missiles” cannot be anything but amazing

That's definitely up there with AXZ's first ep for raw satisfaction. God I love Symphogear. Choreography was great, love the new songs, Hibiki's new henshin is ridiculously badass.

Miku definitely still feels like she's just a burden on Hibiki et all and that is 100000 percent going to be one of the last hurdles we have to clear.

It's really cool to see how good the production was in this ep so soon after rewatching S1. Show's come a long way from those mildly janky days - now we're probably not quite at the level of technical proficiency of something like Mob Psycho or Fire Force, but we're sure holding our own all right.
