This particular season has a great many flaws. Before you watch this season, ask yourself - how many times can I hear the word 'Revolution' in one minute, nay, an entire 13 episode season, before I get annoyed?. Ask yourself that question and consider that if one character says it, the entire roomful of a dozen or more will parrot it back and this might happen multiple times in one episode. Remember too, that they say Revolution because I would suppose there is no Japanese equivalent...it doesn't always sound quite right.

 

Another flaw introduced is in the excessive extra cast members introduced yet again to Haru, our main heroine. Harmony is good and all, but now there is simply too many faces, too many voices, too many people to squeeze in an effective showing over 13 episodes. Last season, we were given 5 more cast members. Now we are given another 7, with heavy focus on another group, and the core original group is halfway ignored. The newer additions of this and the last seasons seem to lack the charm of the original group, with more extreme negative personalities that take up most of the screen time it simply drags the show downhill.  It is the perfect example of a show seeing something that might add some interest and diversity to a show and just extending it to the point that it becomes detrimental instead of beneficial. The core group is left to harmonizing between themselves and suddenly reappearing right at the end for the competition. Again, Haru watches from the sidelines. 

 

This season had a great deal of potential but just fell flat. The music was good, the harmonies were right up there, but Haru seemed to be forgotten in all of it. A few scenes focused in on her interactions in a meaningful and even caring way, but generally this season focused on pursuing the international spotlight, with Haru's heart being forgotten. 

 

I only hope the next season is better. I personally rated this as 3 stars because of the general lack of core ST⭐RISH group screentime, the extremely annoying Revolution parroting (I could barely continue it), and the excessive cast. I only hope in the future, this series will contract back to the core group and focus more on the relationships that develop as opposed to pelting fans with pretty boys that have bad attitudes.

      Hey all! You guys seem like wizards on here with how well you can find obscure anime. Here’s a tough one though.
      A few years ago, I remember watching a anime set sometime in the future. I don’t remember much and what I do remember is a bit hazy so take that with a grain of salt.
      I remember it was about a normal dud that finds an escaped girl with green hair. I think she might’ve been a Martian or something... but she was definitely not normal. I can’t remember much else besides a scene where they get almost intimate and that she lives in his closet... maybe. Again it’s super hazy. Also for some reason “melon bread” keeps jumping out at me.
      to whittle down the selection, it wasn’t Code Geass or Elfen Lied.

      I don’t really expect anyone to know and I’m definitely not much help with the details but any leads would be super useful. Thanks!

      Senki Zesshou Symphogear

       
      This is one of Japan's top selling anime, with 5 seasons, over the course of the past 7 years. Season 3 was #1 in sales for its season, while season 4 was ALSO #1 in sales for its season. AND season 3 beat ONE PUNCH MAN for the ENTIRE YEAR. And it isn't popular in the absolute bloody slightest outside of Japan.
       
      I'm confused too, don't worry.

       
      But if you want one of the best hype action shows of the decade, Symphogear is for you. It does damn near everything that people love about shounen action shows, except it does them far better than most actual shounens, despite Symphogear not actually being a shounen.
       
      AND it's a fucking musical. Didn't see that coming, did you.
       
       
      It ain't cutesy, it lives off of the rule of cool and more or less can't go more than 5 minutes without something exploding or it dies, with music that's about as cool as that whole concept is.
       
      Watch this scene, and witness our beloved main character parry tank shells with her bare fists.

      Watch Order:
      Symphogear (a bit rough, don't judge the show based on this season. Still good, just not peak Symphogear.)
      Symphogear G (This is where Symphogear actually starts to shine, and it stays that way. A shitty side studio fucked up the first season, so they fired them and swapped out 90% of the staff and you're left with a season that's vastly superior to the first in absolutely every god damn way you could ever expect. Get. To. This. Season.)
      Symphogear GX (It got even prettier.)
      Symphogear AXZ (The animation got better.)
      Symphogear XV (Airing right now, and is really turning out to be a proper culmination and finale of 7 years of a franchise.)
       
      OOOOO
       
      Now that you've been so heartily informed of the best show ever, I'd love to hear what any of you think of it. First impressions based on this thread maybe, or impressions from you going to watch it! It's my favourite show by a mile, so I assure you I'm more than willing to chat your ear off about it, and if you aren't impressed by it... well, leave it to me

      EVERFROST is combining a concept album with an integrated manga for their new album. Has anyone seen this kind of thing before?
      Check the new single on Youtube

      So "Emo" music has consistently been my favorite kind of music for years now, and while "Emo" may not necessarily sum up the sound of the music it is what most people would call the bands I like. Seeing as in my household my music taste is disputed by many of my siblings as well as my parents, mainly for the sound as most of them do agree the lyrics are meaningful. 
      So, with such bands as My Chemical Romance, Panic at the Disco, Twenty one Pilots, Icon for Hire, La Dispute, and Fallout Boy in mind what would you say you're opinion of "Emo" music is based off of sound and lyric quality.
