Guilty Crown 03

Guilty Crown

>Dat feel when you get home and Inori just casually unlocks the door and enters first.

>Dat feel when you step in and realise her stuff’s all over the place.
>Dat feel when you realise she’s going to make herself home despite your half-hearted objections
>Dat feel when Inori changes in your living room, plus her dress has holes at the side.

Guilty Crown

>Dat feel when she then asks you for food with that face. In that pose. From that angle.

Oh god Inori, why do you make me feel so guilty?!

Ok, this was a pretty good episode despite all the naysayers. I’d have to say, my impression of Inori really did change quite a bit through the episode. She’s actually a lot more willful (stubborn?) person than the impressions I got from the last two weeks… not to mention rather whimsical as well. Also, is she rather strong for her build too? I mean, she practically lifted Shu up during the eye contact scene.

Of course, it wasn’t all just Inori fanservice this week. The long-delayed explanation about the mechanics of the Void power finally came to fore this week, i.e. only works with people 17 or younger plus they don’t remember anything afterwards. Gai also admitted to the ability of being able to see what each person’s Void looks like, plus he seems to be able to determine it over a certain range.

And he’s also FABULOUSLY manly too

Still, it was funny to see the range of shapes a person’s Void can take… though the dude with the refrigerator Void sure took the cake for me.

The BGM really did quite well to set the mood throughout the episode too, with the music conveying the same whimsical feel during the lighter moments of the show. Ahh… so tempted to get the CD’s now. ORZ.

Luckily, the show’s pace looks to swing back to action-packed next week, as poor Shu gets betrayed by the guy he thought he would be friends with, despite him being a drug addict AND unhealthily obsessed with scissors. Really, Shu swung from kinda awesome to rather useless this episode. Ah well..

    lol @ the failed first attempt to draw out a Void ending with class rep being groped :P
    Gai had a convenient way of explaining his “just as planned” with Void used during the battle… he knew it all along!
    also lol @ the “under 17” rule… how convenient – and btw making useless to try and use Voids of regular enemy troops, not being a psycho space cadets :P
    also, this show needs a character who asks: Inori? Egoist? Who is that? and acts completely unimpressed.
    plus, Inori should be in top 10 wanted people of occupied Japan right now… even if no witnessed remained from the battle she was recorded earlier when she stole the bio-weapon… good grief she’s equivalent of Princess Leia getting into some ordinary Coruscant school!

    “Also, is she rather strong for her build too? ”

    Her void is a sword. I’m pretty sure her strength is only the tip of the iceberg.

    also, there is probably absolutely no coincidence that Shu’s mom seems to be involved in creation of the genetic weapon…

    >”The Power of the King”
    >Needs eye contact
    >Victims don’t remember anything after

    Hmm, where did I hear a story like this before?

    I feel guilty for continuing to watch this.

    Also, what point does there serve for void users needing to be 17 or younger. Is it so they plot angst is at an all time high ALL THE TIME?!

    THEIR plot angst.

    Also, @Gohan: Lol, no idea what you’re talking about. I mean I’ve NEVER heard of a show with a power with those kind of rules. Guilty Crown is soooooo friggin original.

    So, I take it Inori will become unusable in a year or two?

    And actually, this show is quite entertaining as long as you watch it with a glass of scotch. Good thing that it airs on the same day with the penguin one.

    for those of you with legal age, I suggest watching “Boku wa tomodachi…” with a first beer/drink, Mawaru Penguindrum with a second, and Guilty Crown with a third (^_-)

    Heh, considering how Ikuhara seems to be on heavy drugs, it might be better to reserve the last position for the penguin show – that way you’ll be closer to his wavelength. But otherwise, I approve :D

    @Gohan; still more Deadman Wonderland vibe than Code Geass, but thats only me.

    Oh, I wasn’t the only person reminded of the Deadman Wonderland. Well, let’s see if the parallels end just with a mother researcher working as an assistant on a top secret human improvement project, or if she’s made her son’s DNA a key to unlocking that ability.

    I have the strangest feeling that Inori is going to start ordering Pizza Hut to Shu’s room, while half-naked. Perhaps she’ll even start speaking to herself, which – through a series of plot devices with the occasional hole – will be explained as communicated through a network of collective consciousnesses known as God. Er.. That is quite a strange feeling.
