Why won’t they just make Gai the main character already?!
Ok, Guilty Crown, while entertaining, was definitely not known for good, consistent writing and this week’s episode just painfully makes it so obvious. I’d say pretty much the entire first half of the episode was horrible. First with the Hisoka-wannabe guy trying too hard to appear crazy while not doing so, then Shu for digging the grave for himself every time the Hisoka-wannabe asks him shit. Then came the entire “hey we helped you useless people out, so you owe it to us” justification he used to try to bring Shu over to his side… and Shu actually took the bait. Well I guess one could say Shu was being prudent and took out an insurance policy… but dude, you just admonished them for shooting innocent people and the next thing you do is to take their offer to betray the other side fighting them? Sigh.
Well, when the fighting started, it was actually a lot better, but still… it could have been better choreographed. For instance, when Shu pulls out Kido’s Void, a mecha is about to punch him so he aims it at the mecha and for the next 15 seconds…. it slowly charges up. In the meantime, the mecha is frozen. Like what? It just waits for the damn thing to charge up before going for the kill? Hurr. And Inori’s sword is seriously overpowered. Guess I can say the same about her too, since she just did a bloody jump up like 50 floors or something? Starting to think she’s not quite human herself.
Next I wonder what they are going to do with the classmates too. I mean, he’s pretty much been identified as a terror suspect and got detained in front of pretty much his entire class. Probably just gonna pull out a bullshit excuse two episodes later to get him back to school. At least next week’s episode will be spent learning more about the rest of the Undertakers.
Finally one niggling question…
…why does Hisoka-wannabe have a idol-style photo of Tsugumi only? No, really. It’s like Tsugumi posed for the damn thing herself, LOL.
