Senki Zesshou Symphogear episode 2 discussion

Episode 1 discussion can be viewed here

Sadly she didn't go berserk. Those glowing eyes and smile at the end of the last episode really made this series interesting and I thought for sure something would come from it. But it didn't carry that on into this episode. Instead she can't even fight and she has to run away. But I have to admit, she is really cute. The cat like ears, the headphones and pretty much everything else.

Hibiki Tachibana - Her transformation is cute

She can't fight so Tsubasa has to do everything. Even in the first episode she shows she can do it without Kanade. Hibiki is handcuffed and given a welcome party at the Mobile Disaster Response Corps 2nd Division. Both times she visits she is handcuffed even though she isn't a threat. So there is no reason for treating her like that except for comedy.

The ability to transform comes from fragments of Kanade's relic Gungnir. Tsubasa has the first relic and Hibiki now has the third. There will be a second and maybe even more. Having Kanade's relic grants Hibiki the same suit and probably the same power. Singing activates the power of the relic and allows them to fight the noise. In the next episode Hibiki will fight against Tsubasa. So we'll see how well that goes.

I have to mention Hibiki's and Miku's relationship. They are more than just friends. The way Miku grieves in the first episode feels more than missing a friend but instead a lover. They live and sleep together which just adds to it. But I really hope she isn't going to be like the clueless male character of a romance show. Falling asleep before she's going to say something important is not what I want to see.
