Synopsis

Japan, 2039. Ten years after the outbreak of the "Apocalypse Virus," an event solemnly regarded as "Lost Christmas," the once proud nation has fallen under the rule of the GHQ, an independent military force dedicated to restoring order. Funeral Parlor, a guerilla group led by the infamous Gai Tsutsugami, act as freedom fighters, offering the only resistance to GHQ's cruel despotism.

Inori Yuzuriha, a key member of Funeral Parlor, runs into the weak and unsociable Shuu Ouma during a crucial operation, which results in him obtaining the "Power of Kings"—an ability which allows the wielder to draw out the manifestations of an individual's personality, or "voids." Now an unwilling participant in the struggle against GHQ, Shuu must learn to control his newfound power if he is to help take back Japan once and for all.

Guilty Crown follows the action-packed story of a young high school student who is dragged into a war, possessing an ability that will help him uncover the secrets of the GHQ, Funeral Parlor, and Lost Christmas. However, he will soon learn that the truth comes at a far greater price than he could have ever imagined.

Many people are aware of the financial problems faced by the anime industry, and one of the methods that studios have adopted over recent years to try to shore up their crumbling foundations is to adapt popular manga, games, and more recently, Western comics. This approach has become a tried and tested moneymaking endeavour for the majority of studios, but in many cases this is simply due the fact that the source material caters to the lowest common denominator - which usually means fanservice. Unfortunately, the relative success of these shows have allowed them to become the norm rather than the exception, and with that read more

With the large amount of Guilty Crown reviews going around lately, It wouldn't be too hard to find a 'decent' review, right? well that's not the case at all, It seems that most of the reviews are either written by blind fan-boys/fan-girls or haters, 10's,9's,4's and 3's seem to be the popular choice of overall rating, though looking at Guilty Crown in a balance way, this anime definitely deserves a 7 and I'll explain why in the next couple of paragraphs which will you most likely will flick through.

Let me tell you a story. You can think it to be a tale, a legend or even start your own religion based to its awesomeness, but more importantly, read it.

Once upon a time there was a man who loved flying. It was his passion, not his only reason to live, but he certainly enjoyed it more than some other things in his life. One day the man was flying with his airplane like he often did. The day was beautiful and sunny, the man was happy. Before the man realized, his airplane started to lose height. Airplane wasn't working anymore, the man had to read more

Should you watch this anime? Here's a quick check list. (Absolutely NO SPOILER)

1. Do you like near perfection art/animation?
2. Do you like boobs, butts, lolicons?
3. Do you like mecha and superpowers?

If you say 'yes' to 2/3 above then you should definitely give this anime a try, but let us continue...

4. Do you like bipolar characters? Emo? PMS? Post-traumatic Stress Disorder?
5. Do you like unpredictable story development?

If you say 'yes' to 1/2 above then you should enjoy this anime somewhat.

Now for the ultimate question..

6. Do you like cluster-fuck plots full of inconsistencies? Meaning your brain will not be able to comprehend what you are watching. read more
