With the “large” and “small” units already showing off their awesomeness, only one remains.
Hibiki’s birthday is coming up. Christopher seemed super excited.
The team were called to HQ to discuss the Pavarian Illuminati’s goal of opening the gates of the mirrored Orion and unleash some super god. Chief Akuma informed them there was some kind of god slayer in Germany but unfortunately Adam’s previous attack of the facility wiped out all Val Verde gathered data. At least the attack hinted that they’re definitely trying to keep what could be the god slayer power a secret. Tsubasa then remembered the time Hibiki destroyed the “indestructible” snake thing and suspected Gungir might be connected to the god slayer power.
Kirika suggested having Hibiki’s birthday party ASAP. Christopher scolded her for that and told her to stop being naive. Kirika recalled what happened on the ship and the lives lost because of her recklessness.
Meanwhile Saint-Germain seemed to have reached a crossroads in her life. With her comrades’ “dead” she was forced into using herself as the sacrifice to open the divine gate. Also I think Saint-Germain’s counting the number of people she saw die in her lifetime, meaning over 73800 people.
I swear if these two don’t kiss before the series ends it will be one of the biggest missed opportunities in history. Then again NanoFate are legends and they’ve never kissed on screen (as far I am aware). Still, I want to see HibiMiku kiss darn it!
Classic “I’m doing it all for the greater good” misguided motivation.
The ritual was about to succeed when S.O.N.G launched their countermeasures to stop the ritual. The “medium” then hit the scene.
As usual an epic clash occurred. I was half right about the deaths thing. She’s seen over 32800 people sacrificed and nearly 41000 casualties, believing herself irredeemable.
Hibiki yet again tried reasoning with Saint-Germain and this time her words seemed to have got through to her, when of course…
Adam showed up and initiated Plan B.
To the surprise of no one Adam outright told Saint-Germain “Yeah I was just using you three”. She took his betrayal well. Adam answered by having Tiki fire a “Chou Hakudou”.
Seriously? Your response to being called naive was “putting your life on the line to the point of sacrificing yourself with a Swan Song?” DOOD! Hopefully, like Tsubasa, this isn’t the end for Kirika. FUCK ANY COP-OUT BITCHING AND MOANING SHOULD SHE SURVIVE THIS! Symphogear isn’t the kind of show where heroes regularly get killed off. We already had one of those at the very beginning of the series. We don’t need another one.
Anyway the episode ended with am fancy “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” speech as Hibiki and Saint-Germain teamed up to face Adam and Tiki.
