Miku you’re right up (or down) there with Guilty Crown’s cast for being utterly inept and annoying. Really, you know it’s sad when i actually have to defend Hibiki (the annoying genki girl) against Miku’s stupid reason to suddenly say “well, we can’t be friends anymore!”. Her reasoning for suddenly breaking off her friendship with Hibiki was not only quite stupid, but very much forced indeed. But at this point, the bigger picture doesn’t involve her but rather Hibiki and the rest of the symphogear users (and a brand new one gets introduced this episode). Or my hope is that episode 1 was just a big troll and Hibiki (perhaps) doesn’t use her swan song and everything else gets resolved nicely. Yeah, what I hope and what will happen are just two completely different things but I can hope, can I?
Warning: don’t click on the blue links in the “Thoughts” section if you haven’t watched Guilty Crown up to the latest episode, you’ll understand why. This is part of a rant on Guilty Crown, and somehow a defense of Symphogear. Yeah, i’m pretty tired today. Long-ish post below.

Short Summary: A brief look into Kanade’s past and her relationship with Tsubasa. Meanwhile, the new Symphogear user, Setsuin Chris, in the Neushtan(?) armor attacks Tsubasa but her real intention is to take Hibiki. Struggling to hold her own, Tsubasa releases her swan song heavily damaging Chris and almost dying from using the song. Hibiki realizes that she needs to be stronger and can’t rely on others – namely Kanade and Tsubasa – to constantly watch out for her. She seeks Genjuurou’s help to become stronger while struggling on whether to tell Miku about her Symphogear powers.
