The story takes place in Tokyo in 2039, after the outbreak of the "Apocalypse Virus" during what became known as the "Lost Christmas" of 2029. Since then, Japan has been under the control of the multinational organization called GHQ.

Ouma Shu is a 17-year-old boy who mistakenly obtains a rare and great power. He can use this power, "The Right Hand of the King," to extract "voids," or tools/weapons that are the manifestations of peoples' hearts.

He has been rather shy since a childhood tragedy, but both his personality and life change forever when he meets a girl named Yuzuriha Inori, a member of the rebel group called "Funeral Parlor," whose members seek the restoration of self-government in Japan via the ousting of GHQ.

I recently had the pleasure of watching Guilty Crown for the second time, and I think I have a pretty good perspective of this show. When this was airing a year ago, I was very content with the thrill of watching episode after episode, mainly because it was jam-packed with action. The fact that Guilty Crown was the standard bearer for picture AND sound quality raised its stock to astronomical proportions with many viewers. I was amongst those viewers, and was entirely sold by this anime in that respect. Did that change after watching Guilty Crown the second time? Let’s find out.

Story– 4/10

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.

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

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

It's hard not to see Guilty Crown as something of a Code Geass rip-off when they're similar to the extent the main character receives "the power of the king" from a mysterious female, before involving himself in a Japanese rebellion against foreigners discriminating against the Japanese. There are even robots on roller-skates in it!

So far, what keeps the two as separate entities is the respective leads. In Code Geass Lelouch starts the rebellion himself and is driven by both hatred and the desire to protect his disabled little sister. In Guilty Crown the lead is (mod edit) a bit emotionally unstable and gets himself pulled into the rebellion of another man.

If the school-mecha warfare blend continues as the series progresses, those linking the two will only increase in number. It's a good thing Guilty Crown has outstanding visuals and music, as well as fast-pacing--people would look down on it otherwise.
If you take a serious look at both of them, you might discover that they are really alike. I first watched Mirai Nikki (when it was released) and two days ago I have also watched Guilty Crown; my first impression was: this is very similar to Mirai Nikki.
They are both Thriller /Action /Superpower animes with the necessary drop of romance, drama and fine graphics. They are similar in graphics, in action and interest. Also, the characters are at some point alike (if we are talking about the main characters : Shuu is similar to Yuki quite a lot, even though Inori is not completely alike with Yuno, you can clearly understand the similarities between them. Not only that they both have pink hair (which is in itself a cute detail), but their personalities are both distorted and they are dependent (at some point on another) on the main character, a guy who can easily freak around, but whom -in the end, or at the times that matter -fights bravely (both male main characters have nice personalities and outbreak scenes).

A teenage boy meets a cute apathetic girl in which they are connected by a red string of fate to these unique girls. The closer these individuals become the more we see how deep of a connection they share.

Both series have a mecha theme when on the battlefield
Futuristic? Check, Awesome? Check, Derpy protagonists? Check, Awesome female protagonists? Check, Rival childhood friends? Check, Awesome seiyuu? Check!! What else is there to list? Both animes are friggin amazing they even have same same seiyuu and both have ass kickin' OSTs what are you waiting for go watch it NOW!
Highly familar elements feature in both these series's, you'd think it was delibrate...
Both start with a pretty, mystery girl singing, an 'average schoolboy' who's life is about to change as he plays hero in a superpower world he's not too clued up on, the girl seems familar, the military element is displayed pretty much right away.
Both MCs feels that they need to do what needs to be done on their own by there own way. Even though they some what dislike the choices they've made they know that the can persevere over whatever trails they face. They both work hard and are willing to scarify themselves to benefit others.
