As always we Symphogear fans ask how will the show leave our jaws dropped on the floor this episode. SPOILERS, fantastically as always.
When we last left our heroines things looked extra bleak for one blue haired warrior. Fortunately a pink/peach haired knight and others were there to try and help calm her mind to mixed results. Fudou Mishima, I mean Kazanari, was captured thanks to the efforts of Tsubasa and Chief Akuma but a failed attempt at payback by Noble Red reawakened Shem-Ha who resumed her plans of ultimate destruction from the looks of it. Fortunately Maria recovered from Fudou’s cheap shot and stopped her Death Ball. Shem-Ha could crystallize everything using Silver Light but she wasn’t at full strength, giving Maria a small opportunity. Shem-Ha noticed Maria’s left arm and mentioned her being a descendant of the Enki. As we recall Maria knows a song by the ancients, among other clues, so maybe Enki is the name of her race/wherever she’s actually from.
Now we know what happened to Noble Red. They’re under new employment.
To sum up the next scene:
-Shem-Ha erected the Tower of Salvation. Fans of a certain Bandai-Namco JRPG will get the reference.
-Fudou was still in Supervillain Mode behind bars.
-Papa Yatsuhiro’s funeral was off screen.
-Captain Bikkie and the rest of Team Symphogear immediately wanted Tsubasa back despite her briefly “turning heel”. Lady you went through hell for most of the season so accept her handshake yo.
Speaking of the above mentioned tower we got a flashback of what happened to Noble Red after their unfortunate encounter.
It went something like this:
Shem-Ha: How disgraceful. I am far weaker than I realized.
Noble Red: What the? We’re not dead…and we’re somehow stronger…but why do we look more monstrous?
Shem-Ha: Because you have evolved.
Noble Red: Does this mean we can never become humans again?
Shem-Ha: Foolish mortals. You have transcended these pathetic wastes of flesh. Rejoice.
Noble Red: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Shem-Ha: Serve me.
Noble Red: Okay.
Back to Team Symphogear:
So as we saw during the post-ED scene something’s off about the moon. Our cute and sexy team wanted to investigate but Trump did Trump things and got a team of American investigators assigned to the mission, thus our heroines had to ensure a successful launch.
It was the date of launch and of course Noble Red made their move. ShiraKiri were at the scene facing their respective rival of the group supercharged. Same goes for the other duos.
Captain Bikkie: You said you wanted to become friends!
Vanessa: Why yes…BY TURNING EVERYONE ON EARTH INTO MONSTERS LIKE US!
The supercharged Noble Red had way more awesome tricks up their sleeves that weren’t awesome for our heroines. Again the first one to show off her new power was Elza, shedding tears of rage as she wreaked havoc.
Should have known it was their turn to go Amalgam. So good! I won’t detail their epic counterattack. Gotta see for yourselves.
So ShiraKiri were like “We’ve been there yo. Let us show you how to break down dem walls” but her brahs arrived. They destroyed the rocket so might as well retreat. However…
Tsubasa was all like “I must atone for my sins even if it costs me my life!”. Take a wild guess how Maria took it.
Tune in next time to find out where exactly everyone were transported to. SPOILERS, The Death Egg on the moon. Pretty sure the moon IS the Death Egg.
By the way, if Finé is Shao Kahn then i’d say Shem-Ha is Shinnok but instead of an amulet or gauntlet she has a bracer. Then again depending on how the story progresses she could become Onaga.
