Average Rating

Tsubasa Kazanari and Kanade Amou—the idol duo known as Zwei Wing—use their songs to power ancient weapons known as "symphogears" to combat a deadly alien race called the "Noise." While the general public is aware of the Noise's existence, knowledge of the symphogears are kept a secret. When the Noise attack one of Zwei Wing's concerts, Kanade sacrifices herself to protect a young girl named Hibiki Tachibana, leaving Tsubasa devastated and a fragment of her symphogear embedded within Hibiki. Two years pass and Hibiki is once again dragged into a Noise attack. While rescuing a young girl who has been left behind during the evacuation, she awakens the power of Kanade's symphogear lying within her. Although Tsubasa still grieves over the loss of Kanade, both girls must now learn to work together using their powers to defend humanity against the Noise.

Saving the world with the power of music and explosions. I couldn’t ask for anything more.


so many bloody singing waifus. But I mean it in the best way


A bit cliche, but full of moments of sudden hilarity and genre twists. Give it a chance.


Anime is the joke. Symphogear is the punchline. Symphogear is a beautiful mess and I love it. It’s wonderful.


Symphogear could be much more than it is.


Symphogear is the Fast & Furious of Magical Girl shows


Logic going out the window. Wait you don’t really care about that. Ok, I will join in not caring about anime logic as this is a good show.



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
