Tonight was a huge celebration for Symphogear fans as the long-running magical girl mecha anime franchise celebrated its 10th anniversary at the Symphogear Live 2020 → 2022 event. At the end of the event, a nice surprise was had: a new Symphogear project is currently in the works with a “20XX” date! (Yes, those XX’s are supposed to be there).

Nothing else is known about the new project other that it’s the first since 2019 and the Symphogear XV TV anime series, the fifth one in the franchise. The late Tatsufumi Ito directed the first season, while Katsumi Ono helmed the other four seasons both at anime studio Satelight. Discotek Media is releasing the series in the US.
