First show of the season I actually kind of enjoyed albeit mostly ironically.  There's something hilarious and kind of kitschy awesome about these idol girls donning powered armor, deciding they're actually hot-blooded and just punching the shit out of ridiculous looking glow in the dark monsters while singing at the same time.  I feel like I'm watching an idol anime that also wants to be Tekkaman Blade.  Some of the female characters this season could learn a lesson or two from them in gar.

Anyway now to await the inevitable Satelight post 1st episode quality drop that's sure to suck the guilty pleasure out of even this. :(

Tekkaman Blade (1990s version) was awesome.

Symphogear is it's own damn genre.   But the quality drop won't hurt it.  Did you see season 1?  Having "Supreme Quarity" didn't hurt it one bit.  In fact, it might have helped, as it took on that underdog series role and held it really well.   Which spawned one of the most awesome comments of all time around here, where Fumoffu ran the calculations on the Moon Attack.

I just hope Symphogear G continues to be the best "Mahou Shoujo Senshi Naruto Macross Xenogear Witches" in the world of anime.

Which is stranger: That you can call the OP "so...Symphogear" or that pretty much everyone knows exactly what the means now, even if the first season was objectively terrible?

It's funny you should mention that. I was thinking that the word "Symphogear" should now be used as an adjective. It's a great word because it means so much, but ti's innately easy to understand if you've seen Symphogear.

The animation is derpy and the plot is nonsensical, but Symphogear has been great to watch. The scene where Chris sings in the auditorium was probably my favourite moment in anime this season certainly, and it's probably one of my favourite scenes out of all of 2013 so far. Sure it was stupid, and Chris isn't actually a brilliant character, but the show is so earnest that I couldn't help but be carried along by it. Reason left me, and I was just left smiling happily at the screen whilst thinking  "D'awwwwww".

Probably one of my favourite shows of the season.

Edit:

I'll also add that what really sold the scene was the singing. It wasn't perfectly sung or anything, but it felt so heartfelt, and the lyrics lent themselves to the scene as well.

That was a well executed scene, well done there.

You know what, when all the girls are this cute, how can we hate any of them? Like, how can anyone hate kittens? Everyone loves them. Everyone.

It looks like she's been caused quite a lot of 'arm. Arm not sure about this sudden change in tone, since failing this sort of drama is rarely amusing.

Anyway, looking forward to future advances in the plot.

OH MY GOD

The internet is teeming with jokes already. I think its terrible; we should be trying to give her a hand, not crack jokes about it.

EDIT: Whats worse is that this is supposed to be an impactful and disarming moment in the series, and people are running around spoiling it for people like me who aren't watching this right now.

I'd say it's more intended to be shocking, as you're suddenly separated from the main limb of the story... okay, even I'm getting into it now.

At least no one has lost their head over this.

/terrible Madoka joke.

This problem is really getting out of hand; it needs to be cut off from the base and amputated before it festers even further. We should stop before we lose our good Karma. I cannot believe that we find her loss humerus.

Its now gotten to the point where I just shove puns into every sentence and pretend its funny. Lord have mercy on my soul.
