A look into the development of Symphogear: Hibiki's Attacking Report!

About half a year ago, the Symphogear Key Animation Note was released. In that book was a 4 page manga that was based on the idea of Hibiki visiting the Satelight studio to interview the staff and give us an idea of what goes on behind the scenes. The result incredibly wordy and joke-filled manga that was a pain in my ass to translate. However, it also is a rare chance for the fans to get to know the people who work on the show and also get a sneak peak into season 3. Enjoy!

New magazine leaks reveal pajama outfits and interview details

Some lucky bastard got their hands on Megami magazine a full 2 days early. Unfortunately the pics are pretty low quality and all of the information about the interview is hearsay so I can't confirm it. I'm hoping to pick up my own copy very soon, but for now enjoy the spoils of the leak. Based on the school uniforms, GX takes place in Summer.
