Guilty Crown 12

Guilty Crown

Wait, what? Gai and Shu already met in their childhood and they were friends?

Guilty Crown

…. what?!

Guilty Crown

Guilty Crown

And Mana is a pretty psycho.

Guilty Crown

Oh god… red glowing eyes. Never a good sign.

The biggest what is that he still loves her after all that.

Guilty Crown

See you, boy from the sea named Triton and Tsutsugami Gai.

Oh my god, Guilty Crown actually crossed the line from just bad to “so bad it’s Geass”. Don’t even try to do a “u wat u lose” game with this episode… even on a rewatch I still lost :/

I would actually hope that the next show will go “7 Years later, Gai City” or something like that but apparently it’s just a school festival episode. Right after the best character in the show dies in a flood of “wat”‘s too!

At least there’s gonna be casual clothes Tsugumi in it. I’d like to think the Undertakers suddenly decide disband since Gai’s dead and shit, so the girls decide to move in with him and the rest of the show becomes a harem comedy. No wait, that’ll just be turning it back to just bad….

    This episode was incredible. There were characters dyin’ and lovin’ on my screen, and I couldn’t stop laughing.

    They ran out of things to copy from geass and eva, so they reached to madoka for the “circle of strength” motif, believe it. (Except it doesn’t work, and Gai has the most laughable backstory ever.)

    This show is just wow. I lack words to describe how it manages to top itself every week. The only consistent thing is female characters bending, moaning and blushing all the time for no apparent reason.

    Mana’s red eyes look a lot like the turrets from Portal.

    @Karry Said: I’m going to guess you’re not even halfway through Savred Seven. We’ll talk when you finish it… then you can say if it’s better…

    Tip: Bring a wat bag. You’ll need it.

    I get the feeling this is one of those shows where, the first time you watch, you just nod and roll with it. If you are nuts enough to watch it a second time, THEN stuff will start making sense.

    after 3 week of hiatus, this what we get ~~, totally twisted plot it seem that gai (triton), mana and shuu are actually are adopted sibling as takamura family in mawaru penguin drum :
    gai = kanba,
    shu= shouma,
    mana = himari,
    even the love story oso goes the same way direction. what surprise me the most that actually shu is actual role model for gai , and now gai become a role model for shu , how ironic.
    it seem that the final scene gai’s coat flew to shuu, so does it mean shuu will be the new leader? somehow i got hunch that mana will be back anytime for shuu considering inori is somehow is substitution body for mana or able “mind telepathy” with mana..

    This show would make more sense if I just lobotomized myself.

    Well, I’m dropping this. See you guys next week!

    Looks like I can finally drop this now that Gai is dead.

    If Inori is a clone of Mana, does that make Shuu X Inori a wincest?

    Well, that was, uh, an ending.

    We essentially know everything now, so… why is the show still going?

    Woah that’s uhh interesting.

    The good thing is that I suppose Shu will go Simon (Gurren Lagann) now or sometimes later right? I sure hope it is. Perhaps the reason why his eyes turned so bad ass some times when he used his power is that it’s his “real” self and not the wimpy side you usually see.

    I’d say Code Geass was still better than this during its first 11-12 episodes. In contrast, I don’t evencare about anyone or anything that happens in Guilty Crown because we seriously lack a proper build-up for all these relationships and characters, other than in a very retroactive and disjointed fashion.

    “I’m going to guess you’re not even halfway through Savred Seven. We’ll talk when you finish it… ”

    Even so, at least thats half a dozen enjoyable episodes. Which is twice more than i could stomach with GC. And even if i will find Sacred Seven severely tapered in the end – it wont make GC less painful to watch.

    “Oh my god, Guilty Crown actually crossed the line from just bad to “so bad it’s Geass”.”

    Really? Code Geass was a critically acclaimed juggernaut and won awards. Granted, the second season was messy, but compared to this, R2 looks like a masterpiece.

    @ewok40k
    i believe mana and shuu are not blood related , that episode , gai refer to haruka as shu’s new mother so there is high probability both 3 of them are adopted so they are no wincest

    So what if Shu was awesome as a kid…he was a kid…and it sounded to me like the show was trying too hard to make him look less pathetic…

    Maybe the show has a different idea, but for what my words are worth, people are who they are and inevitably become who they’re supposed to be-you can blame your environment for what you turned into but point is you TURNED: Gai was awesome because he was supposed to be awesome, the fact that he changed himself through a conscious effort and DID proves that: he earned it.

    Shu..now sorry Gai, but I’m not buying your story…Yes, kidShu was so much more awesome than his teenage self…but…here’s what…why didn’t he stay so? A boy who is badass keeps some of his badass traits. TeenShu had none of that. There was no hint of a powerful soul underneath that emo-wimpiness…he became a wimp because he was supposed to BE as a wimp. And no matter what this show tries to do, and by extension the universe that this show is set on that continuously tries to tell me (naggingly) that this pathetic excuse for a main character deserves a “crown” (as in deserves to be a leader) I maintain my position that he does not.

    Seriously, any competent harem lead has more spine than Shu…

    Geass was pretty disjointed too I’d say, but the difference was Sunrise being pretty good at making hooks for the audience to keep coming back. That’s why it won awards.

    Code Geass had characters and a plot I could give a damn about despite being a train wreck that was saved in the last minute. Guilty Crown doesn’t have a single interesting character, Gai? Kamina made boring. Everything else has been done before and I really can’t give a damn.

    I think I felt particularly bad about this show’s crapiness because I really, really wanted to like this show, but then it went “you love me so I can torture you!” on my ass. No please.

    @Giovanni
    Your view is awfully fatalistic.

    Welllll according to the show Gai is badass because he looked up to Shu and tried to emulate him. So despite your emphatic desire to discredit Shu for every little thing he does, you do have to at least partially thank Shu for how baddass Gai was.

    As for KidShu vs. TeenShu…really? Do you think people stay the same their entire lives? How about the fact that Shu was probably traumatized from his sister trying to get his genes after shooting his best friend and wiping his blood on her lips, then exploding in flames before crumbling into powder while the whole world went to hell around him. Yknow cause you can just shrug that kind of thing off.

    Look you hate Shu and that’s cool but you don’t need to stretch it this far to justify reasons to hate him.

    @everyone else
    To be fair it was hinted that Gai and Shu knew each other from the first ep. Go back and watch their first convo if you dare. Gai treats Shu like they’ve met before, Shu has his first flaming flashback, and it explains why Gai is an asshole to him at first.

    @Taka

    True…I’m not going to deny it: I’ve disliked Shu since I saw him in episode 1. And I will not deny that that affected my overall impression on the character. He just rubbed me off the wrong way and never really recovered from that. That’s really just it. He had his moments, and I wanted to like him soo damn much, but it never happened in the end. Maybe it’s because a lot of his reasons for doing a lot of things he did felt rather weird-and wrong-for me…anyway, yeah. I’ll end this with that. I just don’t like Shu.
