Are you ready for something amazing!? I sure hope so!
Has it really been a whole year since the first season of Symphogear? Wow how time really flies, but I am here to bring you my first impressions on the second season! I hope things start off better this time around because I remember how terrible things got with my first trip into this crazy magical girl singing idol anime.
Techno magical girls yo!
Hibiki brings the super kicks and Chris supplies the fanservice
-loud techno music playing in the background-
Hibiki, Chris and Tsubasa are back to sing songs and kick some major monster butt or are they? With the end of season one I was left wondering if they did a season two who will the girls fight? Because every magical girl series needs one or two epic villains to push things along for the plot and it appears that this new season will introduce three brand new “evil” magical girls with Maria and I assume next week will show Tsukuyomi and Kirika? Since I am a big fan of all things magical girl on Metanorn part of me has always wanted some kind of “evil” team of magical girls which does happen in most of the later PreCure series, but that was usually a mirror image thing like something from Persona 4 with the girls fighting themselves to either overcome some personal problems or gaining a brand new power up. Speaking of evil characters Chris from season one was technically “evil” but with the help of Hibiki she was able to turn Chris to the good side with the power of surprise-yuri-friendship which I can see that happening once again in this second season with Maria, Tsukuyomi and Kirika I just want to know how those three girls obtained the power of the Symphogear in the first place?! Oh and on a side note the evil characters transformations are the same as Hibiki, Chris and Tsubasa just painted black with some extra features thrown in but I am curious to see if they have similar attacks as well? I guess we just need more time to see how the story unfolds.
Extra special magic
If you are bleeding from the eyes seek medical attention quickly!
Hibiki-“Yo dawg! Did you see that monsters face explode?! IT WAS AWESOME!!!”
Maria’s outfit reminds me of Lacus Clyne from Gundam SEED/DESTINY
Not as detailed as Vividred Operation butt close enough!
Holy crap that was an amazing first episode! Usually I knock on Symphogear for being really bad I just hope that this second season can erase my memories of a terrible first season, but I suppose that it helps to have three brand new characters to make things interesting. So who you excited to see appear next time? I really want to see Kirika next because her MAL photo shows her wearing a witch hat which makes me wonder if she uses the same abilities as Chris who uses mostly ranged based attacks, but it also helps that she is voiced by Ai Kayano who I have grown to like. Speaking of great voice actors Tomokazu Sugita appears as a scientist who I have marked as being “evil” as well because of how he reacted when talking to the girls about heroes? What was with that odd laugh of his? Besides that awesome guy fans of Hikasa Yoko will love hearing her sing as Maria because I know we have a lot out there! Thanks for reading and catch you later.
OH SNAP WE GOT A BADASS OVER HERE
Time for a magical girl fight to the death!
