Symphogear Season 5 Delayed to June 2019

Symphogear AZX Visual It seems that this epic must wait for another day.

Earlier today, the official Senki Zesshō Symphogear AXZ anime website announced that the show’s upcoming fifth season was delayed. The series is now slated to air in July 2019, rather than its original April 2019 window.

Symphogear made its début in the Winter 2012 broadcast season.

The most recent season, Senki Zesshō Symphogear AXZ, aired in the Summer 2017 broadcast season. Katsumi Ono (Symphogear seasons 2 & 3, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V) directed project at Satelight, while Elements Garden (BanG Dream!, Bodacious Space Pirates) scored the soundtrack. Akifumi Kaneko and Noriyasu Agematsu were billed as the original creators of the work.

Crunchyroll streamed the first three seasons of Symphogear, which they describe as:

Noriyasu Agematsu, of music production group Elements Garden, along with Akifumi Kaneko, designer of many famous RPGs and other games, are back for a third installment of the original TV animation. Its emotional and highly original battle scenes, where the characters sing as they fight, are back and better than ever, making the story even more dramatic. This time, the heroine, Hibiki Tachibana, and the other five Symphogear Weilders are faced with their largest and toughest foe yet: a mysterious group of warriors.
