Synopsis

Symphogear XV is an action/sci-fi/music anime. This fifth season will follow Hibiki Tachibana, Tsubasa Kazanari, Chris Yukine, Shirabe Tsukuyomi, Maria Cadenzavna Eve, Shirabe Tsukuyomi, and Kirika Akatsuki as they use the power of their voices through song to protect the world with the help of their Symphogear which is a powerful armor used to combat the “Noise” and is activated when a user harmonizes with its relic. It has been some time since anyone has seen the “Noise,” but a similar wavelength was detected at Yokohama Oosan Bridge where a small hooded figure in black ran away with a small box. It seems there is a song to destroy the world and it’s up to the girls to save it.
