Senki Zesshou Symphogear episode 1 discussion

Humans have been menaced by mysterious monsters called "Designated Aberrant Disaster: Noise". Tsubasa and Kanade are a popular vocal unit "Zwei Wing". They wear the new weapon "Symphogear" and fight against Noise to save the earth. (Source: MAL)

In the first scene Miku Kohinata is visiting Hibiki Tachibana's grave. She survived the concert so she must have died some other way. I don't think the reason is from her transformation.

The only other music anime I've seen is The Idolm@aster (which I haven't finished yet) and as a comparison, this is amazing if not better. The amount of work that goes into animating really shows. It really was amazing.

The public know about the noise. It's obvious from the way they recognise them. But the problem here is, why would you go to a closed off space when you'd be an easy target? The only benefit of being there is Zwei Wing are the only 2 we know can fight them. However, even if they are, it doesn't stop one of the members from giving her life just to save one person. Given that Hibiki is the main character, it wouldn't be the best idea to kill her off without a real fight.

On the rooftop, Hibiki sings the song to transform. I'm left wondering if anyone can transform with the song or if she had dormant power. She looks as if she has gone berserk but next episode will show if she can control her power.
