Symphogear G and GX medley airs on Radio Nikkei

Someone on the staff of Radio Nikkei's "Anime & Seiyu Music Night" is a big fan of Symphogear. In the past the station aired a nonstop marathon of 6 songs from season 1, but now they've stepped up their game.

Symphogear BD 6 released along with Carol's "Green Green"

We're only a few days away from the Symphogear live concert and the timing was definitely intentional as the final blu-ray volume of GX was just released along with the full versions of: While Singing Our Thanks (Maria / Kirika / Shirabe), G-Beat IGNITED and Green Green (Carol). Green Green was only announced a few weeks ago and caught many people by surprise. However, what's even more surprising is that it's not actually a Symphogear song, but Carol covering a song that's been around since 1963.

Pre-concert Hype

With just over a week to go before the big 2016 concert, things are getting pretty exciting. Tonight the official website revealed that BD 6 will have a new song for Carol titled: "Green, Green." Also the line-up of concert goods has been revealed which includes a few surprises.

And if you haven't noticed I've started a database of translated lyrics for all the GX songs. So far this only includes the songs I TL'd for H&D but I've begun the secondary songs from the CDs as well, the most recent being Tsubasa's "To the sky." Check it out.

Symphogear GX Design Archive

The Symphogear GX Design Archive is the third book in the Symphogear "design" series, and like its predecessors it doesn't disappoint. It's filled with 250 pages of conceptual art, prop designs, background sketches, interviews and more. Previously the "design" books were only available for sale at the concerts but the GX Design Archive retails for 4,000 yen (about $32) and can be purchased online from amiami, CD Japan and Play Asia.

Symphogear GX Staff Book

Long time no see. Thought I'd give the old blog an update now that some new stuff has come in. I hope to return to regular updates...someday. H&D subs for OVA 2 coming soon, the script is out of the draft phase but I fear setting the signs may take time. My thanks to those who are sticking with us. In the meantime let's take a look at the new releases as we gear up for the concert at the end of the month.
