Magazine interviews and more shed some light on GX (spoilers)

From now on I will be marking posts like these with a spoiler tag to alert readers that specific details will be revealed in the post.

What’s in a name? GX’s new characters and their influences

From the beginning, the names of the characters in Symphogear were carefully chosen by the creators, usually to highlight their role in the story, or other times to reflect deeper meanings and hints at their backstories. In GX, this is no exception. Carol and Elfnein received their names from co-creator and music producer, Agematsu, while the four dolls were likely named by Kaneko. In this post we’ll try to explore what their names might mean.
