Post by Cross » Sun Nov 27, 2011 4:12 am

Genres: action, science fiction
Themes: mecha, post-apocalyptic

Plot Summary: After the outbreak of the unidentified virus "Lost Christmas" in 2029, Japan has been under the control of a multi-nation organization called GHQ. Ohma Shu is a 17 year old boy who has a psychic power in his right hand. He can use the power "Ability of King" to extract tools or weapons from his friends. He has been avoiding making trouble for others but his life changes when he meets a girl Yuzuriha Inori, a member of a resistance guerrilla group called "Undertaker", whose members pilot mecha weapons to fight against the government.
I just noticed that there's no Guilty Crown thread.

This show borders between painfully generic and downright awesome.

It makes me puke my feces out as they grows legs and kick me in the balls, while at the same time making me more electric than snorting coke and drinkin beer at the same time.

I know right? I'm still having a hard time deciding whether or not to watch it. When it's good it's great but when it's not then I get bored. It definitely is pretty though.

Then start here.
Ep. 7Show
This is not the first time that STA missiles are used on STS actions.
But a single set of shields stops it here.
In reality US used 5 shots to immobilize an Iran ship during '88.

Another mystery on Inori and Haruka(mother) with that photo.

Guilty Crown, episode 8Show
Gai's plans are ruined this episode by someone else. We find out about Shu's father. We get to see Inori in a swimsuit. And Shu and Souta have a ho yay moment near the end.

And I noticed a few interesting (if possibly unintentional) seiyuu connection jokes in this episode (includes references to Clannad, OreImo, and K-ON!).
SpoilerShow
First off, we have Souta, one of Shu's friends. He's loud, easily excitable, and has a crush on Inori (who's paired with the male lead). He's also voiced by Daisuke Sakaguchi who voiced Sunohara in Clannad. Sunohara was loud, easily excitable, and had a crush on Nagisa (who's paired with the male lead). Incidentally, Gai is voiced by Yuuichi Nakamura who also voiced Tomoya (the aforementioned male lead) in Clannad.

Second, in the scene where Ayase and Tsugumi were passing by, Ayase remarks on Tsugumi's outfit (which looked like a maid outfit with cat ears). Ayana Taketatsu is already associated with cats (Azu-nyan), and Ayase is voiced by Kana Hanazawa, who also voiced Kuroneko in OreImo. And Kuroneko dresses up in a maid outfit with cat ears. Therefore, making it ironic that Ayase was annoyed at Tsugumi's outfit.

Guilty Crown, episode 10Show
Shu suffers a breakdown after the memories of Jun trigger his own(?) memories of Lost Christmas. Meanwhile, Gai continues going forward, trying to secure the origin of the Apocalypse Virus, only to fall for one of Segai's traps. Segai then triggers the Apocalypse Virus, causing another incident like the one ten years ago.

Guilty Crown - Episode 1-10Show
caught up with this as well.
the story is interesting despite all there being overused cliches everywhere.
shu has problems: at times he's badass with inori's void, but then suddenly, he'll become a weakling again. at least he's less of a wimp than yukiteru from mirai nikki...
there's a still a lot of questions left unanswered and i was a bit confused at first, but i'm enjoying guilty crown.
yay for supercell music~

While Shu goes crap and is slapped by 'second choice' Hare, the GHQ used the AP virus... Do wonder how they deceive the public.

Guilty Crown, episode 11Show
As GHQ is taken over by a skillfully executed coup (and obfuscated by blaming the virus outbreak on Funeral Parlor), Shu realizes that he's the only one capable of saving Gai, Inori, and everyone else at Funeral Parlor from GHQ. So he gathers up the classmates from which he's used Voids and pleads that they help him save everyone. Using all of their Voids, Shu manages to reach Inori just as a mysterious person appears and whisks Inori away.

I personally think it's gotten better. Of course, I never really thought it was all that bad to begin with, either. ^^;

response and opinion of the show at halfwayShow
Even though Yukiteru is a wimp he has a lot more character than Shuu who is just plain boring and poorly-written with his inconsistences :\

As Metaler said this series is overly cliché and intriguing at the same time. The writers have a hard time to connect the episodes together and make it feel like it's not 11 totally different anime with the same character designs, but on the other hand I still want to see what happens next, so I'm trying to ignore the flaws and enjoy the thrills. In the last two episodes the show seemed to pick up some pace at least, if it wasn't for Shuu's lame reason to help Funeral Parlor it would have been a good episode. I needed some help to figure out who was that eyebrows guy who drew out Inori's Void at the end though, and that's another mistake in the writing - not enough foreshadowing.
By the way I'm kind of relieved that Hare won't end up with Shuu at the end, he doesn't deserve such a cute, kind and caring girl -_- Souta should forget Inori and go for her :P
