Moar translated stuff!

Two things, firstly I'd like to remind everyone that we have just over a week until the contest ends. I haven't had any entries yet, so you have a good chance at winning something if you make a submission! I can extend the deadline if anyone is concerned about that - just drop me a comment or email! I hope nobody is stressing, I wanted this to be a fun thing but maybe it was too much of a hassle. (・_・;ヾ

Translation Corner #24 + 25

The next few keywords deal with the individual Symphogears and reveal some important details that we didn't know before. They finally answer some questions I had in regards to: why Tsubasa's gear changed after the timeskip in episode 1, and why the Symphogears were built with locks (as per Fine's dialog about the XD forms in ep 13).

Translation Corner #22 + 23

These 2 keywords are all about the technical and scientific aspects of the Symphogear system. In particular, how the system counters the Noise's "phase contrast barrier" and how it protects the user from the Noise's carbon conversion ability by using a "barrier coating."

Symphogear Manga: Chapter 8!

Here's another chapter fresh off the press, just for you. This one is a direct follow-up to last chapter where Tsubasa fights against Fine. It has a lot references to the anime, notably Tsubasa's battle with Chris in episode 7 and Genjuurou's battle with Fine in episode 10. Only 2 chapters left until this volume is over!

Translation Corner #21

The Noise have always been a confusing part of Symphogear's plot, as it's never explained clearly what all of their abilities or are or what methods the military uses to combat them. But today's keyword helps fill in some of those gaps!

Translation Corner #20

Today's keyword is about the Minister of Defense, Hiroki. He was the guy that appeared in episode 5 (and the first chapter of the manga) who died at the hands of Fine's American goon squad.

New info about Solomon's Cane

I'm back with more to add to Solomon's Cane! A fellow Symphogear enthusiast on twitter provided me with some information after reading the keyword I posted earlier today. This bit of info changed my perspective, so it's definitely worth including here. If you ever find info you think could help explain the founding ideas behind Symphogear's relics - please let me know!

Translation Corner #19

Back to the keywords! This one is pretty important as it explains the specific details of Solomon's Cane. It also reveals some facts about Fine that we didn't know before. Also I've included another history lesson on the actual item that Solomon's Cane was based off of.
