Symphogear XD website updates with story synopsis and more

Following up from last weekend's event, the Symphogear XD website updated with new information. This includes a plot synopsis, new character sprites, enemy character additions and an overview of the music box which confirms a new song for Serena.










Plot Synopsis 

Gjallarhorn.
A complete sacrist with the power to connect parallel worlds that was discovered and up-kept by Ryoko Sakurai. Until now it had remained dormant, but after the events of the magical girl incident it suddenly became active. Now connected to parallel worlds, an outbreak of supernatural events begins to occur. The Symphogear Adaptors are called upon to resolve the problem and with Gjallarhorn's power they head for unknown worlds. What awaits them there are new encounters and new powers. And standing in their way is also a new threat. Within the parallel words, a new battle begins for the Symphogear Adaptors.






Character Updates and Quotes


I am the man of truth, Dr. Ver!

And now, I too will become a hero!











I am Leiur Darahim, the simple way isn't my style.












Here's Garie-chan! I'm gonna cry if we don't get along!











I'm Mika! I'm hungry!












Have a taste of the power of my philosphical armament.












As expected, all battle songs from each season are included in the music box. However, currently the secondary character songs that were included on the CD singles are not listed. There are also no songs listed yet for Miku, Serena or Kanade, but the pages confirm that something is "coming soon" for each of them.

Finally, attendees of the demo event last weekend have compiled a brief set of lyrics from Kanade's new song "Backlit Resolve" which seems to be an answer song to season 1's "Backlit Flugel." Note that these are unofficial and incomplete, but will hopefully can be finished as soon as the game is released.

To create the sound known as "you"
We left footprints on this path
But the cruelty born from oblivion 
Swallowed everything whole 
On that day our wings were wet
And too heavy to fly 
My right hand reached for yours
Cutting through the wind
To help prop you up 
Even if we are reborn in a thousand years
The flugel of our souls will call us
To smile in the backlight once again
So I can be the same as in your memory

  1. Woah, so predictions of Gjallarhorn being central to XDU was correct. That's pretty amazing~~

    Though the relic shaping like a conch really helped though~

  2. This is insane. All I want is to talk, and you will not even say anything. You are being literally insane.
    I don't want to threaten to DDoS this blog, but what will get through to you? It's like I'm talking to a psychopath.

    I'm going to try talking reasonable three more times. If you don't say something, I'm going to flood the blog with replies. After doing that for a few months, I'll move on to DDoSing the blog.

    Is this worth it? Do you refuse to talk this much?

    1. Somehow, I don't think threating spam and DDOS attacks incentivises Zoid to cooperate. It really makes you seem like the unreasonable one.

    2. Woah dude chill out! The man isn't on the blog 24/7, he has commitments outside of it. Patience is a virtue.

      Delete
    3. Are you psychotic or something? Why are you so bent on him replying?

      Delete
    4. I don't even understand what they want him to reply too? All I see are their threats.

      Delete
    5. He is here because he has actively been deleting other posts I've made. And I've been trying to talk with him for months and the only thing he does is delete posts. So I had to resort to something else.

      Delete
    6. Assuming he is deleting your posts, what sort of things have you been posting?

      Delete
    7. At first? Calmly trying to explain to him that supporting content like doujin where Hibiki gets fucked senseless by gangs of faceless men is the exact opposite of how a fan should act.

      Delete
    8. Uh well that doesn't really sound like an appropriate conversation to have in the comments. I can understand why he would be deleting comments about that.

      Delete
    9. There's no real reason not to have it here. But, it wouldn't be an issue either way if he replied to the emails sent to him or said one god damn word about why he is deleting posts without saying anything.

      Delete
    10. Well dude he doesn't really have an obligation to reply to you. He's running this blog in his own spare time.

      Delete
    11. He clearly has time to delete posts for hours on end. Don't would have been less time just to reply. And he's spreading disgusting content in the fan base, like littering in a public park. So the objective here is to make him stop.

      Delete
    12. And where is he spreading this disgusting content? Because I don't see it on this blog.

      Delete
    13. His Twitter.

      Delete
    14. Then don't follow his twitter? All the important Symphogear stuff gets posted on the blog.

      Delete
    15. Please don't be dumb. Whether I follow his twitter or not the damage he does to the fan base is still there. If you ignore trash on the ground at the public park does it magically go away, of course not.

      Delete
    16. What damage does he do exactly if he shares some NSFW stuff on Twitter? Every show is going to have it. I don't personally enjoy it, but why should he have to cater to some guy who gets offended by the tainted 'fanbase'. Pull that stick out your arse mate and pick your battles elsewhere.

      Delete
    17. It's not like Zoid is the official spokesperson for all things symphogear.

      Delete
    18. Okay, sure let's talk.

      I had agreed to disagree with you a long time ago after we argued on twitter, but I should have known you would continue to escalate your harassment until I replied. By the way, deleting a comment and ignoring an email takes about 10 seconds which is why it's much preferable to taking 10 minutes out of my busy day to sit down and write this in an attempt to reason with you.

      However, I'm not sure what we have to talk about because I will never stop "pretending" I'm a fan and cave in to your distorted world view. You seem fixated on the sexual doujin content that I am apparently spreading out everywhere, but I'd love to see you provide some solid examples. I won't deny that I buy many doujin, both 18+ and not, but outside of a single loot picture on twitter I don't share those works out respect for the artists. I don't scan and upload them to other sites and I certainly don't post them on this blog. I also have stopped RT lewd pictures instead opting to favorite them, but I blocked all your twitter accounts so perhaps that's why you haven't noticed. (continued)

    19. Regardless however, I know that your qualms with me extend far beyond the “doujin where Hibiki gets fucked senseless by gangs of faceless men” if your blog is any evidence to go by. (https://besuretoactuallyread.tumblr.com/). It's actually quite fitting that your comments finally came to a head on this post since as of now parallel universes are canon to the Symphogear story with XD. This means that through the game, official art of pretty much every pairing will be released. I'm sure you've already noticed the Hibiki/Shirabe and Hibiki/Kirika images, so why haven't you DDOS'd the XD website yet for trampling over the feelings of Hibiki and Miku? Of course I know it's because you're fixated on me. Angry at my standing within the community as a person who actively translates and contributes content whereas you do nothing but attempt to enforce ridiculous social sanctions upon those who don't agree with your preferred pairings.

      Look, I understand that you are upset by content that explores ideas outside of the canon. You obviously have a heavy emotional investment in it so I don't think that is an unreasonable feeling to have. What is unreasonable however, is attempting to “purify” the fan base to assure that only people who think like you are in it. I'm not sure where you're from but surely you must be from a country that is a member of the United Nations. Have you ever taken the time to check out the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the UN? You might find article 19 particularly interesting. Here's a copy of the text: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.” So I know it may come as a shock to you, but surprise: I, and everyone else, have the right to support whatever content we want. And publicize that in any way we want. And so do you! Personally I recommend that you spend your time and money supporting artists who draw content you like, instead of picking pointless arguments on the internet. Hell, if you took the time to create your own blog or forum and started contributing your own translated content then you might actually create the fan community you so eagerly want to be a part of.

    20. At the end of the day I do my best to keep this blog limited to only official updates and translations so that everyone can enjoy it. However there is a huge, worldwide community of Symphogear fans that produce all sort of content that I think is worth sharing. I'm not just talking about doujin, but fanmade figures, games, apparel, novels, you name it. There are tons of people out there that love the series and express that love in various ways, this blog is only my small contribution. It's great because the core message of Symphogear is that we, as a society, can transcend the limits of language and find ways to join hands to work together in an effort to bring peace. Sadly, this seems to have been completely lost on you as instead of joining hands you seek only to cut them off. Hibiki would be ashamed. Although I'm sure she would find a way to befriend you, because she wouldn't give up. In that sense, you're welcome to continue sending me emails of which I will try to reply, but I would ask that you refrain from posting on the blog any further as I'd like to keep it as much of trouble free space as possible. Good day.

    21. *Clap clap* Well said Zoid!

    22. I am currently out business right now and am only to post from my phone. But, that said, I will do as you say and address everything you said in an email as to keep your blog clear. However, I will say one thing, this is not a matter of opinion but of raw fact. By definition a fan is someone who appricates the charaters, and to appricate something means to recognize its full worth, the full worth of the characters is not to be used as shallow lifeless fuck tools. By definition you are not a fan, as you don't like the characters, you like the pleasure you get from them. Similar to how a pedophile doesn't love children, but loves the pleasure they get from sexulaizing them.

      One Last thing, and then I'll keep it all to emails. Many people have a problem with this type of content, and I'll send you the objective proof of it when I get home tonight.

      P.S. it is not my intention to cause fights, only to clean the fan base. Sorry it turned out otherwise.

    23. "Blah, blah, blah I'm and elitist fanboy blah." Don't let the door hit you on the way out! Buh bye.

    24. lol...wth is going on i only here for updates about XD unlimited lol...

  3. Honestly, I don't get this. How can you be so out right openly hostile to someone for caring about the characters and not wanting to see them bastardized? Is talking really that hard? How do you deal with students or other teachers when they don't agree with you?

  4. I hope the games story will be it's own stand alone thing (even if it's still technically canon) and won't effect the animated series.

    1. Canon and official do not mean the same thing. The games are not canon. Duh.

  5. Zoid have you thought of making a discord?

  6. Hey, since you seem to know some Japanese, would you mind translating this...? Please? It's from a really good anime called Yuki Yuna is a Hero. I would recommend it.

  7. I'm worried that there's no sprites for Miku and Serena.

    1. I wouldn't worry, it doesn't mean that they won't be in the game.

      However, it does seem to indicate the game's release might be delayed for awhile.

  8. ok.. i have a question but not about this post... the keyword from symphogear g.. when will finish with the translation??

    ReplyDelete
  9. Dunno if this is the right place to ask this, so apologies in advance if it isn't.

    Those official art in XD is suppose to represent other parallel universes? Is it confirmed that those art (like Kirika-Hibiki, Miku-Chris, etc) are 'pairing', or is it still an assumption at this point?
