Inori Yuzuriha News

Inori Yuzuriha is a anime/manga character in the Guilty Crown franchise
| |

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.

Overview

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? Will the UN actually go through with nuking Japan? And what will happen when a certain someone makes a surprising return?

By KuroNekoXIII

After Gai destroys the enemy bombers, Inori and Shu escape. Arisa decides to work under Gai's orders, and Gai has the world on its knees due to his leukocytes. Meanwhile, Okina plans to confront Arisa. What does Okina have plans in store for Arisa and why does Gai want Inori?

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.

Thanks

Thank you guys for reading my team's report. I thank my teammates for their support and hard work. Colorbrandon did a great review on Guilty Crown and thread on Guilty Crown's Ending interpretation.

  • In addition to wiki work on the anime, KuroNekoXIII and I do weekly reports (and occasionally news and fun blogs) anime. We're are behind in it and the anime, but our team will complete both projects.

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.

Overview

In this news article, Kuro and I will cover what the New York Comic Con Panel got from the staff of Guilty Crown: Koji Yamato of Fuji TV, George Wada of Production I.G, and Ryo Oyama of Aniplex. In the second half of the blog, we will cover updates of Guilty Crown's manga adaptation.

Plot

For those who do not know Guilty Crown, my partner Kuro wrote this on the franchise's page.

After the spread of the "Apocalypse Virus" in Japan in the year 2029, the country has been placed in an emergency state. Since the spread of the virus, the Japanese government lost all of its foundations, and the reign of the international organization known as GHQ began ruling the country. Now Japan is in a state of martial law, which is enforced by the GHQ, and is considered a "quasi-independent" nation.

10 years pass, and we see the story 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, known as Funeral Parlor, or Undertaker.

Guilty Crown Panel

Source: Guilty Crown ANN by Todd Ciolek October 16, 2011

**I will reorganize and summarize the information from Todd's article to make it easier to read. Be sure to read his original article.

Shu and Inori

First, the three producers talk about the original concept of Shu and Inori.

According to Wada, he states that the story is based on how Shu and Gai foiled each other. While Shu is a timid and average high school student, Gai is the charismatic, handsome, and respected rebel leader of the Funeral Parlor.

Yamatmoto stated that the inspiration for Inori is the hot trend in Japan where young teenagers revered online divas. Plus, Wada explain that her egotist outfit is inspired by a band called Egotist which is popular among teenagers.

For both Shu and Inori, the producers link them with the story of a boy who meets an unusal girl.

Minor Characters

Oyama stated that her outfit should be recognizable to Neon Evangelion fans because of her body-hugging tights. Oyama and the producers asked Redjuice Graphics to make Ayase sexy with this suit.

Wada informed the audience that Funnel might be the most important character and that his gender is male. Also, Funnel's design is similar to Gundam's Haro and the Ghost in the Shell's Tachikomas.

Influences

  • Code Geass - Due to Ichiro Okochi's involvement in Code Geass, the mechs have some connection. Yamamoto stated that the settings are quite different because Guilty Crown had a more modern setting.
  • Eden of the East - According to Wada, the creators saw Eden of the East, so they asked I.G Productions to make Guilty Crown like Eden of the East
  • Ghost in the Shell - Same as Eden of the East
  • Death Note - Wada stated that Tetsuro Araki's work in Death Note inspired the music in Guilty Crown.
  • Fullmetal Alchemist -Oyama states that he wanted to make a conflict between those who have special powes and those who don't. This is reflected in Fullmetal Alchemist's homunculi. Furthermore, Oyama stated that he was also inspired by X-Men's conflicts between humans and mutants.
  • Darker Than Black - Oyada worked in that show, but there is no info on its influences (in the article).

[KuroNekoXIII stated that Darker than Black has individuals who have special abilities, Contractors.]

Questions from the Audience

  • Why is it shorter than a typical anime broadcast?

Yamamoto state that this is because of Fuji TV's broadcasting timeslot issues. He inform the audience that they would like to have a sequel series, a movie, or an OVA, and he kindly ask the audience to support the series for Guilty Crown's future.

  • Why does Guilty Crown mean?

According Oyama, the "crown" comes from the central theme of this show, "Who will become the next generation's kings?" Furthermore, he explains that the growth of Genom makes guilty feelings and how Shu feels guilty using his friends as weapons due his power to take out Voids from his friends. This is where the "guilty" part comes in. When a fan asks about how Shu will feel if he pulls out a Void from a stranger, Oyama stated that they will find out in episode 3.

Unanswered Questions

How did Shu acquired the Void Genome?

Anime Vice's Questions for Guilty Crown's Staff

I did this for the New York Comic Con's interview with Hiro Mashima blog on Anime Vice. It's nice to hear from fans of Guilty Crown to voice comments or questions that they still have. I'll start it off.

Taka's Questions

  • Since Ayase is inspired by Neon Genesis Evangelion, what character from that show is your favorites?
  • What characteristics of Eden of the East and Ghost in the Shell does the creators and the producers aspired to replicate in Guilty Crown? How will they distinguish their work from those influences?
  • What singer is the inspiration for Inori's character?

I looked up possible Japanese females who match the words Egotist and Idol: Yui Aragaki (a famous actress and seiyuu), Reiko Nakane (head of a fashion store called Egotist), and Eiguchi Aimi of AKB48 band (Eiguchi is computerized model, so she isn't a real woman).

  • Will there be other countries outside of Japan have some involvement in the story?

Be sure to comment.

KuroNekoXIII's Questions

  • Was the Leukocyte inspired by the actual Quasi-Zenith Satellite System that Japan is working on? If so, how is the Leukocyte similar and/or different than it?
  • Why did you choose Redjuice to create the character designs of the anime?

Other Sources

None.

Guilty Crown Gets a Manga Adaptation

According to Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan's November Issue, they stated that Guilty Crown will get its first manga serialization.

Staff

  • Shion Midzuki - illustrator
  • Yousuke Miyagi - writer

Not much info is given in the ANN's article. According to Capsulecomputers, the series will have one chapter per month.
