Once you give in to the absurd, over-the-top ridiculousness of Symphogear, you'll never look back.― Symphogear isn't a “traditionally good” show. Its dialogue is ridiculous, storytelling somehow simultaneously cliche and incoherent, and drama laid out with the subtlety of a writer who has literal hams for hands.
