Story Synopsis編集

In the near distant future, humanity is threatened by the existence of Noise, an alien race which will turn humans into carbon, effectively killing them. The only thing that can go against them would be using the armor known as Symphogear, a relic which is amplified using the power of song.

Two years ago, a pair of idols, Tsubasa Kazanari and Kanade Amou, collectively known as ZweiWing, fought against an alien race known as Noise using armor known as Symphogear. However, in order to protect a girl, Hibiki Tachibana, who is attacked by the Noise and nearly died from that battle, Kanade implanted a fragment of her powers into Hibiki's body, effectively giving her the power to control the Symphogear. Leaving her last words, Kanade ended up sacrificing herself in the battle as the result.

2 years later, both Hibiki and Tsubasa entered Lydian Music Private Academy, whom both of them encountered each other. As Tsubasa has fought the Noise alone, Hibiki ends up gaining the same power as Kanade.
