Symphogear GX site updates with character information

Tonight the Symphogear GX site revealed a large update complete with a new written introduction to the series that teases the story, and new pages for all the main characters that contain personal information such as birthdays and measurements.










Symphogear GX Introduction:

This is a story of fixing that which is broken.

The third season of the original TV anime series produced by the leader of the sound production group “Elements Garden,” Noriyasu Agematsu, and the RPG game maker who has produced many games regardless of genre, Akifumi Kaneko.

“Senki Zesshou Symphogear” has moved on from “G” and as a direct sequel will continue this summer with the newly produced “Senki Zesshou Symphogear GX.”

A series where the action unfolds as the characters sing songs, filled with originality and emotionally impacting scenes that you won’t find in any other anime, but now even further powered-up with a more dramatic story.

This time, starting with the main character, Tachibana Hibiki, the six Symphogear users will be faced with the biggest challenge of the entire series, an immense syndicate of powerful warriors.

How will our gear users face these opponents who are even able to fend off the Symphogear’s power of song!?

A new Symphogear awaits, on a larger-scale with new characters and new songs on the horizon.

This is, Symphogear GX!

Hibiki’s classmate. She often has a personal nickname for all the friends she gets close to.

Compared to her earlier days, she doesn’t get as annoyed when her nicknames for others end up catching on.

Shiori Terashima


Hibiki’s classmate. At first glance she appears to be the mature, quiet type, but when she stood on the stage at the Cosmos Festival she became more aware of herself and there are times she can act quite bold.

When she comes to her senses though, she can become quite scared of her own abilities.

Yumi Itaba


Hibiki’s classmate. She’s a remarkable figure who can positively assert that all of her life’s important lessons have come from anime.

Of course, she has also learned a lot of unimportant lessons too, but is unrivaled in the satisfaction she gets from everyday life.

He is the mental and emotional anchor for all the Symphogear users, while at the same time maintaining abnormally high battle capabilities.

Aoi Tomosato


Mainly in charge of data processing at the 2nd Division of the Singular Disaster Anti-riot Unit. Although her job often places her as being support for the gear users, her personality is actually much more the go-getter type.

    1. They said no new relics... maybe completely evil male copies of the female gears with the same relics? Either that, or the Custodians.

    2. I'm pretty sure they said that there would be no new allies. This could still leave new relics for the new enemy.
