This is more of an opinion piece meant to create some discussion, but it includes quotes from interviews so I think most people will find it interesting to read. There's a lot I want to talk about when it comes to Symphogear but I'm trying to keep this focused on a single topic so it doesn't get too lengthy. I might follow this up with more later on. Feel free to make good use of the comment section, I will reply when I have the chance.
