Haruka Ouma News

Haruka Ouma is a anime/manga character in the Guilty Crown franchise
| |

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

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

  • 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.
