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.
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.)
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?

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.

Did a quick doodle of a friend of mine. She was listening to music in the library. She suffers from depression, which the more darker colours represent. Although, listening to music helps her out a lot in public places. She smiles, transforming the void into a night sky and a snowy backdrop instead. On my cell camera, the glitter and gloss didn't really show up on the image too well. Bummer!
