Guilty Crown 01

Guilty Crown

Delicious redjuice character designs brought to life is delicious.

Guilty Crown

Yes, this sure makes me feel guilty.

Guilty Crown

Especially, this.

Guilty Crown

Oh god this.

God damn it, Guilty Crown is actually pretty damn awesome. It’s hitting just about all the right buttons for me in this first episode. And I guess it’s surprisingly refreshing the protagonist doesn’t suddenly gain a giant mecha to curbstomp the enemies’ generic ones too, but instead a 3m long sword weapon that he uses to deflect missiles and slice things in to half. I’ve always wanted to see humans vs mecha.

Yes, this is still the first episode so the chances of it going to shit later is about 87.3%, but hey, no matter how slim hope is, it’s still hope. Given that its 2-cours as well, there should be a good enough budget for it. Plus, oh god, the supercell music is going to be awesome enough on its own. This sure is turning out to be quite a good season for anison for me. And the new vocalist with supercell is really showing off her chops straight off the bat. I hope the nagi fans will be pleased wwwwww

    Hell yeah this was awesome! I also love how Sho’s eyes just turn all serious and such which just made the whole “contract” scene even better.

    But hell yes… audio porn… lol

    Sorry feal87, Inori already belongs to Shu.

    lol ^^ fighting for inori ? i quite surprise that seiryuu cast for inori (Kayano Ai) the same seiryuu for ‘boobie’ hibino from kamisama dolls performer well here, her voice in this anime seem to be timid and emo which somehow kinda give u the idea that she is ’emotionless’, rather than her other counter part. i take notice that the plot story is very similar to code geass r2 setting:
    guilty crown – code geass
    1) freeing japan ( rebellion fighter) – the black order
    2)shuu’ s ‘stigmata’ hand – power of the king (geass)
    3)use of mech – knightframe

    giving that they are done by the same screenwriter. just hope they dont end it badly like code geass T_T. anyway is hard to make assumption giving that this is just the first episode. hope they meet my expectation in few coming episode ^^

    It’s very, very derivative, but as Darksiders taught us, that doesn’t mean it has to be bad.

    Shu is already better than Shinji Ikari anyway.

    the first thing i thought of after watching this

    1.Code Geass (Japan being taken over)
    2.Deadman Wonderland (boy gains power through something like blood/dna?)
    3.Utena (sword out of a girl, come on)

    @shinkirou
    I thought Geass had a great ending. Because of that, I have high expectations for Guilty Crown. Art’s great and the songs are catchy, what’s not to hate about a first episode. Haven’t even gotten to the epic plot twists.

    @Tenryu

    This is probably the show that I’m looking most forward to this season when I heard that it had redjuice design characters, supercell music and IG. I hope it doesn’t turn horrid but like you said, it is probably more than likely :(

    @clazy
    yup everything is good in code geass ending except that the main protagonist (lelouch) die, i hate story that main protagonist die in the story … to tell you the truth is still unknown whether lelouch have become immortal or die (although many speculation stated he die/ but artbook stated otherwise) coz sunrise lead the story hanging and let the viewer decide lelouch ‘fate’ , so i kinda hope guilty crown dont have suffer that kinda of ending

    He is clearly withdrawing the weapon from inbetween her clavicles, not from her breasts. All is forgiven.

    PB as long as they’re not withdrawing it from her butt, All is forgiven.

    @allnighther
    where u get that idea -_-”
    @Pb
    it would be better off if her entire body just transform into weapon

    @shinkirou
    then that would be generic right..?

  17. Allnighter Said,

    Can’t help it Hayate, where else would you get a weapon from?

    It’s the usual:

    1. Transform (you’re a weapon, I’m a weapon)
    2. Summon (pops out of thin air, let me pull it out from another dimension)
    3. Form Contracts (you want to be a mahou shoujo?)

    btw I was a bit drunk when I wrote that other post… hic…
