Senki Zesshou Symphogear Episode 3


So after the big challenge last week, Tsubasa attacks Hibiki, but she's stopped by Genjurou. Poor word choice from Hibiki only makes things worse after the battle. So more explanation from HQ: basically, the Noise have all been targeting a collection of relic fragments hidden below the school called Durandal, so they believe someone's controlling them or they have a will of their own.

After that, we see more of Hibiki's life, while she finishes off a report so she can go see shooting stars with Miku. However, she's interrupted with Symphogear stuff, so she's forced to cancel. In her anger, Hibiki's powers go to the dark side, and she regains that feral appearance from the first episode. She's still unable to finish off all of the Noise, with Tsubasa arriving to clean it up. They're both interrupted by the arrival of a strange girl wearing the armor from two years ago.

Too many things in this show seem familiar for some reason. Tsubasa thinks of herself only as a weapon, which I'm guessing come from the fact that she believes that the weakness that she had when Kanade died stems from these emotions. The Noise seem to be controlled by some entity, which makes it possible humans are behind the Noise's existence. Tsubasa can't activate whatever Durandal is, so I'm guess Hibiki activates it or something.

Am I predicting too much? Or are these things really truth? Looks like the beginnings of a plot twist with the ending of this week's episode, so let's just see where it goes. I'm also wondering if Hibiki will ever get a weapon or if she's just gonna be punching everything. I still feel like I can't judge this show properly yet.

    While I hate the voice, the design of the new character is quite cool...:O

    Darn it, Hiniki. Why you keep snapping out of Berserker mode like that?! And, no, I do not think you are prediciting too much, since I am during the same with who is going to active Durandal (maybe Hibiki...Miku???) and I also can not help but feel Sakurai is in on this. Probably a no "s*** Sherlock" on that one, but I am getting a weird vibe from lady. Also, what was that term Tsubasa mentioned? Mis...Nisa.. crap, can't remember since I forgot to copy it down and streamed it online this time.

    I feel like the berserker mode could be so much more dramatic than it is...her face just changes back to normal so fast

    There's definitely a deeper story that they're not reaching yet, that might be what's throwing you off. And the appearance of a new Symphogear only deepens the story and raises more questions. (I'm betting she's from either the U.S. or in league with the Noise)

    Well, I'm merely speculating
