Overview

Hello Vicers, and welcome to the fourth edition of KuroNekoXIII's Guilty Crown Weekly Reports. Takashichea has recently began editing the Guilty Crown wiki pages alongside me; thanks for the help Taka!

If any of you guys and girls are fans of Guilty Crown, and want to make contributions to the Guilty Crown wiki pages by joining both Takashichea and I, just send me a PM (don't worry, I won't bite :P) . We'll be glad to hear from you and get your help with the wiki pages.

Now that we're finished with the announcements, let's get this show on the road!

Plot

The fourth episode continues where the story left off, with Shu being taken away by GHQ officials. While being held prisoner, Shu starts learning more about Funeral Parlor, a.k.a Undertaker and their plans from GHQ Major Segai. Shu becomes even more indecisive about whose side he should be on than he was earlier; and the fact that Gai refuses to answer any of his questions makes matters even more confusing for him.

While Shu's lost in his own sea of thoughts, Undertaker is already on its way to rescue a known murderer that is also held prisoner by GHQ. Seeing that rescuing him is not part of the plan, who should Shu put his faith and trust in?

New Characters

Jun Samukawa
Jun Samukawa
Yahiro Samukawa's younger brother. He is currently being treated under GHQ's care by Sephirah Genomics.
Kenji Kido
Kenji Kido
A prisoner confined by the GHQ, and is known as a mass murderer responsible for the "Sky Tree Bombing".

Verdict

Good

1. We managed to learn more about GHQ, from the perspective of a GHQ official, Major Seiga.

2. We are also given more insight on what the Apocalypse Virus is and it's effects on people.

3. More Undertaker action! We're able to see the strategic and combat abilities of Undertaker. They're not an easy bunch to deal with. I assure you.

Oh Inori, you're finally understanding the feeling of being alone

4. We also learn more about Yahiro Samukawa's back story.

5. Inori is displaying a lot of character evolution in this episode. I won't go into too much detail, but let's just say that she's starting to act less like a "tool".

Bad

I actually didn't find any bad points in this episode.....I'm thinking really hard, but I can't find any.

Points of Interest

I think it's interesting to note that the seiyuu (voice actor) for Major Seiga is Nobutoshi Canna, the same seiyuu as Kabuto from Naruto. Both characters have that eerie and messed-up vibe to them.

Ending theme twist, with Shu initially walking by himself with a glum face, then Inori joins him, and leads him. Does this foreshadow something, perhaps?

Trivia

Test time! Think you're a Guilty Crown expert by now? Prove it then, by answering the trivia questions linked on the following pages:

I think I have a crush on Kenji even though he's gotten 10 seconds of screen time. I have a feeling he's a badass. XD
 
I'm still a bit confused on what /exactly/ GHQ is and stuff. But it's all good~ :P

@Superevil225:

It seems that Kenji will be a pretty interesting character. I get the feeling he'll have some sort of intense back story that will be revealed in the upcoming episodes.

GHQ is confusing @_@ So far all we know is that it's some sort of international organization with its hands in everything from medicine, to military. But I get the feeling that there's much more to it than what they're telling us. We'll just have to wait and see :P

Man, your reports are getting better and better. Hope I can keep up!

(It seems the Gintama arc will be 3-4 eps long so I guess I'll be covering the whole arc with a single report).

@KuroNekoXIII:

That was an excellent episode and an awesome review! My favorite episode so far. You got sharp eyes because you pick up some slight changes from the ending credits and interpreted it and connected it. I need to step up game for the weekly reports. :)

Inori and Shu's relationship just got more intense as this show progresses. I have a feeling that Shu is not picking a side, but he's doing this for Inori.

Edit: I added your points of interests to the wiki page for episode 4. Thanks, Kuro!

I forgot to show you this image. Can't remember when I took a snapshot

@takashichea:

Thanks Taka! Lol yea I have a habit of analysing scenes and images; so after watching the ending I had to share a bit of what was going through my head :)

I have a feeling that Shu is not picking a side, but he's doing this for Inori.

Nice hunch....I wont say anything more just in case you haven't watched the fifth episode ;P

That screenshot was when I first began working on GC! :D

Thanks for reading the report, and thanks for working on GC with me!
