Overview

Yo whaddup Vicers! Man its been a while since I've whipped up a weekly report. I apologize for keeping you guys waiting, and I apologize to my teammates who had to deal with my frequent absences - which will probably get worse until the school term starts up again.

Anyways, its back to Guilty Crown mode! So much drama and action happens during this episode as we approach the series finale. Hope you enjoy this report, and don't forget to add your thoughts and comments!

Plot

Funeral Parlor (Undertaker) and the U.N. both close in on Ward 24 to bring a halt to Gai's actions. Shu, alongside his allies pursue their main goal to save Inori and to stop Gai, Yuu and Keido from resurrecting Mana and recreating the Lost Christmas event. During the infiltration, Shu encounters Yuu, who offers Shu the forbidden apple anf hence become Mana's mate.

Will Shu accept Yuu's offer? And will Shu manage to save Inori before she is completely possessed by Mana?

Verdict

Good

Some loose ends are starting to get tied together, although I admit there are still big question marks being drawn.

Shu has shown a lot of growth compared to the person and character he was before. He is still himself, but he has become braver and doesn't hesitate before taking an action (which was something he did a lot at the start of the series)

We finally learn more about the Yuu character and what he really is.

Bad

Gai saving Inori
Gai saving Inori

They should have had an origin story for Inori. All we got was a screencap of Gai saving her from a lab and that's all..

Yuu also deserved more screen-time and a stronger origin story.

Overall, the pacing of the anime was a little too fast, and the ideas weren't as organized as they should be for viewers to be able to follow along.

Points of Interest

  • Could Ayase be interested in Shu? I kinda got that vibe from this episode. Also, this was the first time she asked for help getting on to her Endlave
  • I found it cute that both Shu and Inori said the same thing when asked why they loved one another.
  • Another point of interest was when Inori began singing Euterpe when she slowly began to turn into Mana. If you read through the lyrics of that song, its basically about Inori talking to a wildflower. Interestingly, when Inori is covered with crystals and her tear manages to escape and it bloomed into a flower, I re-read the lyrics of the Euterpe song, and noticed that the flower in the song is most-likely a symbol representing Inori.

Euterpe - EGOIST

Original / Romaji Lyrics

English Translation

Saita no no hana yo
Aa douka oshiete okure
Hito wa naze kizutsukeatte
Arasou no deshou
Oh, field flower that has bloomed,
Ah, somehow, please tell me:
Why is it that people hurt each other
And fight?
Rin to saku hana yo
Soko kara nani ga mieru
Hito wa naze yurushiau koto
Dekinai no deshou
Oh, flower that blooms with the asphalt,
What can you see from there?
Why is it that people
Cannot forgive each other?
Ame ga sugite natsu wa
Ao wo utsushita
Hitotsu ni natte
Chiisaku yureta
Watashi no mae de
Nani mo iwazu ni
In the summer, the rain passed
And the blue reflected,
Small, it rippled
In front of me,
Without saying a thing.
Karete yuku tomo ni
Omae wa nani wo omou
Kotoba wo motanu sono ha de
Nanto ai wo tsutaeru
What do you think
When your friends wilt?
With those leaves that do not carry words,
How do you convey your love?
Natsu no hi wa kagette
Kaze ga nabiita
Futatsu kasanatte
Ikita akashi wo
Watashi wa utaou
Na mo naki mono no tame
The summer sun is clouded
And the wind fluttered.
I shall sing
The proof that life once existed
For those who do not have a name.

In the year 2029, an alien pandemic spreads all over the Japan after a devastating meteor crash, driving the country into total chaos. An international organization by the name GHQ enters Japan, putting it in a state of martial law, and implanting the idea that they cannot do anything to protect themselves without their aid.

10 years pass, and we now see the world of "Guilty Crown" through the eyes of Shu Ouma, an average 17-year-old teenager who lives a normal life. However, his normal life style is soon shattered after his chance encounter with Inori Yuzuriha, who eventually involves him with the anti-government group she is a part of.

The specific power associated with the Void Genome is called "The King's Power ".

Now with this newly acquired power, what will Shu do? He isn't the same boy he was before. He now has the power to make a difference, and cannot remain as a silent by-stander any longer. Will Shu rebel against GHQ and their inhuman methods towards the Japanese? Will he join "Undertaker", the resistance group against the GHQ?

Welcome to Guilty Crown report! This is the last report I'll write for Guilty Crown because I want KuroNekoXIII to wrap the series' last two episodes. He is my teammate who started the Guilty Crown wiki project. He has to end it. Let's get into this episode!

Plot

Episode 20: Remembrance

Gai has Shibungi delivered Dr. Kurosu's diary to Shu; Keido and Gai explain their origin stories. Keido recalls the good times he had with his former best friend Kurosu as they research the Genomic Resonance Theory. Years later, Mana gets infected with the virus, Yuu explains to the two scientists that she would be Eve to produce a new race after the apocalypse. The thought of Kurosu's blood determining the next generation drives Keido jealous. Meanwhile in the present, Shu gets ready to confront Gai.

Find out the events that lead to the Lost Christmas!

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

New Characters

Dr. Kurosu
Dr. Kurosu
Dr. Kurosu Ouma - The father of Shu and Mana and the doctor who worked on the Genomic Resonance Theory. He's the man who supposedly finds the solution to the Apocalypse virus.
Saeko
Saeko
Saeko Shijou - The biological mother of Shu and Mana who died on the day of Shu's birth.

Good

Shu and Souta&squot;s "manly" hug
Shu and Souta's "manly" hug
  • We finally learn the truth behind Gai, Dr. Kurosu, and Keido's backstories that revolved around the Lost Christmas event. The jealously of Keido and Kurosu's lone wolf mentality ends in a tragedy where Keido kills his best friend.
  • Happy Ending: Despite the tragedies that happened in the past, the episode ends with Shu reestablishing trust between friends with their lives in his hands. The scene where Shu and Souta have a handshake to reinforce their friendship bring some closure especially since Shu blamed Souta for Hare's death.
  • Interestingly, Haruka mentions that Shu's name means group which contrasts Dr. Kurosu's lone wolf personality. Dr. Kurosu wants his son to be with everyone. Isn't that sweet?

Bad

Mana: Little bro, let&squot;s "tied the knot!" (Yuck!)
Mana: Little bro, let's "tied the knot!" (Yuck!)
  • This episode is a condensed flashback. I wish they took the story a bit slower. I still await how Shibungi and Gai met and how Funeral Parlor came into being.
  • The episode has no action but drama and suspense. It's hit or miss with fans who want some action.
  • Incest: The fact that Mana and Shu who are are supposed to be the "Adam and Eve" beings to produce a new race after the 4th apocalypse disturbing. I don't mind the religious allusions, but incest is disturbing to me. Won't that create problems for their offsprings since diversity in genes increase chances of survival. The anime doesn't make sense to me. Go figure.

Bizarre

Who supports Yahiro X Kanon?
Who supports Yahiro X Kanon?
  • Fate is a Cruel Mistress:Gai try to escape fate, but he meets Mana and Shu in the end. I wonder if Gai likes Mana or Inori more. I already know Shu loves Inori than Mana, his crazy sister.
  • Speaking of a crazy sister, Mana disturbs me. She has a creepy grin and look as she waits patiently for Shu's birth.
  • Anyone thinks Kanon and Yahiro are a potential shipping couple? Kanon and Yahiro get a lot scenes together. Who knows?

Overall, the episode is great, but it needs to slow down a bit. Hopefully, the fans get a flashback on how Funeral Parlor is created and how Gai meets his teammates, Ayase, Tsugumi, Arugo, Shibungi, Tsugumi, and others.

Overview

Welcome to Guilty Crown report! I'm sorry for the late reports. Let's discuss episode 19, Rebirth: Atonement.

Plot

Haruka originally planned to kill Mana, but she was not there. After Keido had shot Haruka, she escapes with the Void Genome with Seiga pursuing her. With Seiga slaughtering Funeral Parlor troops, it appears that Seiga will claim the Void Genome from Ayase until Shu arrives.

What will Shu do and what are Keido/Gai's plans?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Rest in Peace, Oogumo
Rest in Peace, Oogumo
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Oogumo is a cool character and soldier to the very end. He sacrificed himself to save Haruka. I didn't expect Seiga to kill him.
  • There is more back story on Haruka and Shu. We learned that Haruka is not Shu's real mother. I'm glad that they focus some attention on Haruka.
  • When Shu got his powers back, the ambient music and Shu's new Void make this the best scene that get the fans to cheer on Shu. Shu avenges Oogumo by taking down Seiga.

Bad

I never liked Seita
I never liked Seita
  • For new people who are not accustomed to the bloodshed, Seiga's no mercy scenes in killing a woman and Oogumo can be a little disheartening.
  • Shibungi's back story didn't provide enough details on his relationship with Gai. Hopefully, we get to hear some information.

Overall, this episode is great because Shu is somewhat a man that holds the tremendous burden of everyone. He took Souta's cancer and prepares to risk his own life to save everyone. This is a true king unlike Gai who has become cold and ruthless. The fights and the flow of events are excellent.

Welcome to the Guilty Crown report! I'm Taka, Kuro's partner and substitute reporter. This report, I'm going to cram two episodes episode 17 and 18, Revolution: Exodus and Wandering: Dear. Again, I apologize for the late weekly reports. My team is very busy with school.

Plot

The students under Shu's oppressive rule are starting to feel discontent and rebellious towards the harsh king, leading them to start a coup d'etat lead by Arisa Kuhouin. Inori begins to notice her scary behaviour, and realizes that she is the one who attacked Arisa without being aware of it. Will Shu realize that his followers are actually planning a rebellion?

By Takashichea

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Inori fighting to protect Shu
Inori fighting to protect Shu
  • Awesome Plot Twist:Many fans knew Gai was coming back due to the ending in the last episode. However, I didn't expect Gai to chop off Shu's arm. It's a brutal surprise.
  • All Hell is Breaking Loose: There are a lot of atrocities in these two episodes. For example, Arisa just sold her body to this guy with glasses to get intelligence; in the next episode, Arisa kills her father while working to please Gai. Speaking of Gai, he destroys a bomber with the Voids of the student who were planning to kill Shu. Plus, Gai has the whole world on his knees.
  • Inori and Shu got their first kiss. She had a big scene where she takes on the army of Endlave before Gai ties her up and insults her. I always love Inori's sing scenes.

Bad

Inori realizes the monster (Mana) lurking inside her
Inori realizes the monster (Mana) lurking inside her
  • Inori's Attempted Blowjob Scene: In addition to Arisa's implied sex scene, I didn't like how the creator made Inori attempting to give Shu, a blowjob. Mana is a promiscuous/horny beast that lurks in Inori's mind. Come on, creators. It's nasty to make Inori do this.
  • Shu needs to man up. He has been talking to Inori and saying sorry so many times. It's detrimental to Shu's character.

Overview

Welcome to the weekly Guilty Crown report! Technically, it's not a weekly report since we're behind. The last one was written on Feb. 17. I'm going to do my best to get the reports up to 20 for Kuro and the team. Around this time, Guilty Crown anime is done.

My teammates are KuroNekoXIII (Kuro), LordBane666, and Colorbrandon.

Plot

Kingdom: The Tyrant - Ōkoku:The Tyrant (王国:The Tyrant)

Arugo and Oogumo arrive to Tokyo to rescue Arisa for Okina. However, Arugo is stopped by Shu who has the whole school under his control. They find a startling truth about the Voids and how Hare truly died. Meanwhile, Keido, Haruka, and Seiga prepare to take their plans up a notch at GHQ.

By KuroNekoXIII (See Ep. 16)

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Arugo own Shu
Arugo own Shu
  • Shu is such a jerk in this episode. Despite how Shu treats his subjects and friends, it's a nice change from Shu's indecisive, wimpy self. I bet Karma will get Shu in the end.
  • Speaking of karma, I love when Ayase bitch slap Shu and how Arugo pins Shu like it was nothing. These are the best moments in this episode.
  • Inori's dark side is slowly taking control of her as she attacks poor Arisa. It proves that Inori still have some secrets about herself that keeps the viewers guessing.
  • The scene where Shu discovers how Hare died plays smoothly with the tension between Yahiro, Arugo, and Shu rises. When someone's Void breaks, the person dies by crystallizing and disintegrating into purple dust.

Bad

  • It's hard to keep watching the series since some characters are hard to enjoy.
Who is this? Find out by watching the next episode!
Who is this? Find out by watching the next episode!

Overall, this episode is awesome with a couple of scenes that leave you hating Shu. Let's see if Shu can lead his classmates to safety in the next episode.

Updates

  • So far, my team has finished 18 episode wiki pages. There are 22 episodes in the series. We're almost done! All episodes have images.
  • The manga project is strange. There's not much manga chapters for the wiki work. Right now, manga is not a top priority.
  • Characters: The main characters like Shu Ouma, Inori Yuzuriha, Gai, and Hare Menjou have their pages mostly done. To be exact, Hare's page is completed.

Overview

Hello, everyone and welcome to the Weekly Guilty Crown report! I'm Taka, a teammate of KuroNekoXIII (Kuro for short). After Guilty Crown has given the spotlight to two of Funeral Parlor's heroines ( Ayase and Tsugumi), Shu and Hare have a special episode this week that takes the series back to its roots, war with tears and rage.

Plot

Ep. 15: Confession: Sacrifice - "Kokuhaku: Sacrifice" (告白:Sacrifice)

Shu is trying figure out which to choose, Yahiro's Void Ranking System or something else to avoid discrimination everyone. Yet, Hare comforts him and confesses that she loves him. When Souta goes out to prove he is not weak, he endangers Hare and the others.

Will Shu be able to save everyone's lives?

Verdict

Beware of Spoilers!

Good

Hare's death is Shu's crucial point of change
Hare's death is Shu's crucial point of change
  • This is one of the most saddest episodes because another major character dies in this story, Hare Menjou. After her love confession to Shu, she dies while trying to revive him.
  • Shu's change is very dramatic after Hare's death. He is no longer the kind king that Hare dreams of. Ironically, he becomes more like Gai. After he gives Souta a beating he deserves, he tells everyone with this quote:
  • "I was wrong. Kindness is pointless."

  • Hare's origin story is revealed.

Who to Blame?: Shu is very indecisive which causes Souta to go over there and endanger students. Shu's character have so many flaws. He's weak, shy, and indecisive. Now, he has seen a loved one died in his arms. He has truly lost his innocence.

It's up to you to decide. Souta is a dumb friend, but Shu takes all responsibility since he is going to be "king."

Bad

Rape of Inori

  • No tribute to Hare Menjou. Some animes like Sket Dance do a compilation of the character. I think both Hare and Gai deserve a tribute. The Euterpe song would definitely fit Hare's death. "Silent night" brings the chilling atmosphere of war.
  • Comparing to Gai's episode where he dies, Hare's episode is not rushed. Everything goes along with the flow.
  • Shu's treatment of Inori is downright appalling. It looks like rape. In fact, Shu breaks his promise not to use his friends as tools. Poor Inori. I thought this series is heading towards a romance, but I was wrong. Looks like tragedy will fall upon this series.

Overall, this episode gets a five out five because it's not rushed and shows dramatic character changes in Shu. Plus, this episode is a stark contrast to the other two episodes due its mood. Guilty Crown is finally getting more darker and mature.

Tribute to Hare Menjou and Quotes

Everyone is entitled to their opinions.

I like Menjou because she doesn't have much flaws. She's always kind. Some people call her the Orihime of Guilty Crown because she has big breasts and heal. Yet, I find that ludicrous and that statement a bit condescending to Hare. Hare truly sacrificed herself to save Shu, she fights to save everyone, and she confesses her feelings to Shu. It takes a lot of courage to do that.

Memorable Quotes

  • Hare's Confession:
    "And I love that you don't go around declaring things."
  • Hare's Origin Story: "Hey, Shu... Have you ever read a picture book called The Kind King? The king was really kind...He gave everyone money... and land...until finally... the country was gone.
  • Hare's Origin Story cont.: "You're like that king, Shu...the way you lose out because of your kindness...You know what? I think you're going to be a great king. So...
  • Hare's Last Words: "Shu...I'll give you... my..."
  • Shu: "I was wrong. Kindness is pointless."

I see the bitter irony behind Hare's words. Shu is not the kind king anymore. The way he treats Inori and Souta like tools is evident of his change.

Shu has lost his innocence. (Check out the Loss of Innocence page)
