i just finished watching the episode, and it was alot to take in, it answered questions but raised just as many, but all in all it was a good episode 9.5/10

it explained why shu can't properly remember his past and the girl from his past is actually his sister, i expected that but what i didn't expect was that whole incest thing (unless their not blood related) i gasped when mana kissed shu, and wanted to marry him, it seemed like shu liked her back, which would explain why inori and shu had feelings for each other at first sight, because inori is mana's "shell" what i also didn't expect was gai to be his childhood friend and that he was once a bit of a pussy like the recent shu and how shu was brave and strong like the recent gai, it was quite shocking to see gai getting killed but he was dying from his virus anyway so i guess he wanted to die with the girl he loved (mana) i liked the ending where gai said he wanted to become like shu back (brave and strong) then and how shu could become like gai who is a copy of the old shu meaning shu can become his old self again

im also surprised the whole hate thing is still going on but who cares i still enjoy this anime regardless of all their hate

the concept of drawing voids out of people, which are actually shapes that personify a person's personality already makes this better than pokemon lol just saying


Sucks for that person who had a fridge for a void, huh?

Seriously, this Guilty Crown hate is being blown way out of proportion. People act like its a spawn of the devil and that it is THE worst anime ever created.

Attacking other people based on their opinions doesn't help either.

It's fine to have your own opinion, but theres no need to openly bash the series where people will obviously be offended. It's like unintentional trolling.


Smartest thing anyone has said in this thread so far. Kudos to you :)

Answer my questions then!
1. What is Inori? Is she even human?
2. Why is Shuu able to extract void out of Gai without knocking him out cold?
3. Who is Mana to Shuu? It seems that Shuu is adopted not in any way related to Mana biologically. Is this true?
4. Who the fuck is Mana?
5. Who the hell is the guy(the new baddie) that can also draw out voids out of people?
6. So Mana is the first person to contract the virus so was she the person that started Lost Christmas or was there someone behind the scenes. Where did she get the virus from the first place?

Speculate and Answer!


Well, I have nothing better to do (don't take an answer seriously if its obviously a troll)

1. A horrible character...apparently she is a doll which Mana can -stupidstupidstupid- through
2. Gai has survived drowning, lasers, evisceration, why not?
3. A love interest/plot point
4. A psychopathic teenager, and for some reason GHQ is a bunch of ephebophiles and have a hard on for her
5. Romi Paku I have heard, theres really nothing to say about him, hes too shady as of yet
6. I think she IS the virus dun Dun DUN!!! What a twist!

I said most of this in post #63, but wth

1. She is technically human but she was supposed to be a medium through which Mana could communicate with the outside world.
2. Iunno, maybe because of the sudden bond they dug up with the whole "I was your best friend like 4 years ago" thing.
3. Actually, it seems like Mana may actually be his big sister, but with the way the episode was presented, it could really go both ways since Gai referred to Haruka as Shu's "new" mother. (I think.)
4. Mana was a normal girl, possibly the biological sister of Shu. However she was the first one to make contact with the Apocalypse virus, which might have caused the weird creepy personality that tries to marry Shu.
5. He's been in the shadows since the earlier episodes, nobody really knows.
6. It's too early to know, it's implied that she made contact with the rock that had the virus though. The rock being the source of the virus was a meteorite from outer space I believe, I'm not sure though, I just remember that from somewhere.


5. The evil guy is one of the three people who can draw out voids, another is shu and the third one hasnt been introduced yet.

Most of the hate comes from the writing
Some of it comes from the directing
And the part that blows it out of proportion comes from the hype

It's not the worst by any means, but something that had so much potential falling flat on it's face is going to receive quite a bit of hate.

The bashing is either some form of S/M or they just can't comprehend how this series ended up so bad and need to vent.

Those are my thoughts, at least.

I can see it, Shu gathering his friends to save Gai
Fridge guy - "Take me with you"
Shu - "Not enough space in the jeep, sorry."
Yahiro - "Why? So we can keep our sodas cold?"
Fridge guy - "No, so you can preserve your dead brothers corpse."
Yahiro - *sobs* "You...jackass! AHHHHH!" *runs off*
Fridge guy - "Sooo...am I in now?"

Cold person indeed

Just make a goddamn thread called
"Guilty Crown Sucks"

Please, i actually do enjoy this show, and id like to discuss the episode, on the appropriate thread.


This is a discussion thread thus we can discuss on how bad or good it is. The situation could be reversed right back at you : why don't you make a goddamn thread called

I really hope so, I'll probably start calling Shu "Ganta" regardless though.

Too little too late for some though, I've gotten through 12 eps of wussy MC, I can do 10 more.

'EPISODE DISCUSSION' not hate on the episode because their opinion on the anime is that its 'shit'

Again, same thing could be applied. 'EPISODE DISCUSSION' not fanboy on the episode.

We're discussing the episode much more than you are-- we're talking about how some scenes are pure FAIL. You? You're trying to put us down because you obviously like the show and can't accept its flaws.

Stay salty, your tears are delicious.

The only thing I really seemed to care about was Gai dying. He was probably one of my favourite characters ugh. I was expecting new OP and ED but I'm guessing it comes next week now.

The flashback kinda made the whole story more sense but I am still confused. And I don't like Mana, she scares me D:

Oh and that guy with the eyebrows who kidnapped Inori (forgot his name) reminds me of Mugi from K-ON! lol...
As it turns out, living was a punishment...

Guilty Crown is babby's first mediocre series. Its not good but its not complete shit either, its just meh. Of course people overreact and jump on bandwagons so you see a ridiculous amount of people crucifying this series. Honestly its more entertaining and fun to read all the hate this series gets than actually watching it so I won't complain lol

Hope for a good discussion thread, but still see a lot of harsh comment. Seems a lot of people are ENJOYING mocking GC by posting in this thread discussion. I wonder why they're still watching or post in this thread if they think GC is shit. Confused

back to the story, this episode is good. But, i'm beginning to realize how i hate the way how the plot development is being told. It make me confused and can't connect to the whole thing

Because we don't like it automatically means we're not allowed to discuss it? Logical, yeah.

The only problems i have with this episode is that it was rushed and shu losing his memory, but it was a great episode.

Kurimu-chan said:
Basically, he just "happened" to forget that he ever had a sister. Oh, and that his sister loved him. That she wanted to marry him. He had freakin Inori who's basically her twin right in front of him to remind him. But, oh no, this is GUILTY CROWN, anything is possible.

Seriously, if they don't come up with an explanation as to why Shu forgot all of this (Simply protecting himself by forgetting, seriously? WTF?) I'm going to rage even more.

Now that I think of it, I think I had one or two siblings, like, 10 years ago. But I forgot about them because I want to protect myself. HOLY CRAP.
I agree it is stupid, but lets hope theres a better explanation, maby something to do with those soldiers in the flashback.
is that being biased...fanboy??

I don't think you guys should expect much next episode. Judging by the preview it looks like things are back to normal for now and probably have something to do with Ayase. Its titled Isolation so she is probably depress over Gai's death.

At the ultimate Aniplex hideout studio:

Sagacious Aniplex slave: SUPABOSS... we... have... a serious problem.

SUPABOSS: NO PROBLEMS ON MY SHIFT. CAN'T BE THAT BAD, SPEAK YOUR MIND DOG.

Sagacious Aniplex slave: Script writer backup no5 (Codename GeassFANBOY) has committed suicide...

SUPABOSS: I HAVE NO USE FOR WEAKLINGS. WHERE IS THE SCRIPT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO WRITE FOR EPISODE 12?!

Macross fan Aniplex slave: I have it your honor, however there's something terribly wrong with it! Inori luvluv isn't singing in...

(cuts across)

Realistic ANiplex slave: Let's face it, this script is more a revenge note than anything my Liege... he was in the middle of a severe depression/hallucination/over-use of substances not approved by the Aniplex court of law A.K.A Houritsu no Keiyaku no Last Battle.

SUPABOSS: HE WAS SUPPOSED TO CONDENSE ANOTHER 3 EPISODES INTO ONE, HE SERVED ME ADMIRABLY FOR THE KISEKI ASSORTMENT, SUCH BRILLIANCE. TELL ME WHAT's WRONG WITH IT?

Spoiler-lover Aniplex Slave:

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER



Very well: I'll make it short my Lord. Shu happens to be amnesiac and Gai is a mermaid who was given CPR by Shu's stoned (good one) sister who then decides to rename him on the spot.

SUPABOSS: EXCELLENT, SUCH A TWIST, CONTINUE SPECK OF DUST.

Spoiler-lover Aniplex slave: Ahem, Gai was in fact Shu's best friend and Mana a teenager with hormones issues. She tried to commit incest with Shu to create a new human race. Fast forward until DA LOSUTO KURISUMASU event where she gives a gun to Gai who mistakes the end of the barrel for a microphone (after watching too many Macross episodes) and then she uses his blood for lipstick and screams IYA and everybody dies. Except Shu and Gai because they are immortal... or something like that. (More on Gai's immortality later on)

SUPABOSS: INCREDIBLE, GeassFANBOY HAS WRITTEN THE SCRIPT FOR THE NEXT 14 EPISODES BEFORE TAKING HIS OWN LIFE, SUCH DEDICATION.

Sagacious Aniplex slave: Actually, this is only the first 10 mn of the episode.

SUPABOSS: NANI?!! TEMEEE

Spoiler-lover Aniplex slave: Indeed your Magnificence. Gai is in fact immortal and gets up after being cut in half. He says he didn't hit any vital spots despite evidence to the contrary in the previous episode. Old pervert guy wants to marry Inori...

Macross fan Aniplex slave: Nooooooooooooooo!!!!

Spoiler-lover Aniplex slave: Ahem... and he ties her up and puts lipstick on her lips with an expert hand. He may have a secret past at a secret L'Oreal Studio. SUPABOSS from super mario is still here and comments on everything using english words that our japanese audience will simply qualify as being cool; thank god no gaijin will ever watch this because our english consultant has just been hired by Square Enix.
Shu is now revealed as using a secret technique from BlazBlue/Guilty gear known as True king mode. (+10 to all stats except INT unfortunately)

He goes on and fights giant eyeballs which are in fact his sister who has now developed a fetish for tentacles. Immortal gai has got a gun which...

SUPABOSS: MIND = BLOWN

Realistic Aniplex SLave: Actually... when Gai asks Shu to kill his older sister by stabbing though him, I couldn't help but notice it was quite easy to stab her without perforating Immortal Gai...

Spoiler Lover Aniplex SLave: And kaboom everything is fine. But Gai is dead (but not really he is scheduled to appear in a Princess Utena crossover next year)
CodegeassFANBOY was our last script writer... what can we do now?

SUPABOSS: PUT DRAMATIC CREDITS AT THE END!!! (This time I may get fired...)

And thus began Guilty Crown season 2...

It's not mandatory to like the episode in order to properly discuss it. The problem is that fanboys can't stand that some people don't like it, and that's why the flame war begins in the first place.

I understand that the negativity this show receives seems to be beyond anything we've seen before.

I have a theory. I think the "haters" see this show as a complete "train wreck." As we all know you can't stop watching a train wreck. So they're forced into a masochistic scenario where they are trying to watch a show that makes no sense to them just to see it through. Because of this, i think they post harsh blanket comments as some form of stress relief after subjecting themselves to this masochistic ritual each week.

I myself seem to have fallen into this situation. Though I try to refrain from going off on tirades about the show.

At this point i watch just cause i want to see what they try and pull next. In this episode, I see they busted out the cliched incest angle.

I prefer to laugh about it rather than to be sad. There was potential and aniplex are an experienced bunch.

However, as you said, this is the perfect depiction of a train-wreck.

i never gave a damn about gai till like litterally this episode, and then BAM hes dead, this has happened before it really sucks to finally like a character and then just see him go down

it was a good episode, the exposition could have been handled better, kidna dissapointed that it confirms that inori is shus sister so no romance in this show from the looks of it

Whoa, so much happened this episode. Finally got to see what happened in the past, before Lost Christmas. So Mana was Shu's sister and she was exposed to the crystals and became a psychotic bitch. Her voice was so creepy yet sexy. :S

So Gai and Shu used to be best friends and Shu was the confident and strong one while Gai wasn't. Gai moved on to become stronger whilst Shu tried to forget everything. Also, that incest moment lmao.

Inori was made just to awaken Mana? That explains why she was such a lifeless doll. Overall I really enjoyed this episode though it did feel pretty rushed but best episode so far, in terms of plot development. xD

Remember guys and girls the virus makes the host go fucking crazy so that's why she was acting the way she was in her "final" moments.

I'm sorta confused about the proposing part. So if Shuichiro were to awaken Mana and "marry" her, He would of become the progenitor which basically means he would give birth or shape to a new more advanced human race (like speed evolution) ? I think that's it. I kinda didn't like how Gai could use his own void. It kinda takes away the "guilty" part, being able to peek into peoples hearts and extract their void without the person remembering anything. Maybe when a bond is strong enough the person doesn't have to be asleep. anyways I thought it was a interesting episode. A bit too rushed. I'm curious about what the new arc has in stock. Gai's dead, Mana is dead, Tokyo is in ruins and Daath is still a fucking mystery. I assume he will take role of main antagonist.

guilty crown's hater fanbase is just like the FF fanbase, they dont use logic, cant accept that others can like the show they are obviously bias but wont admit it and worst of all, they make the few people that have good reasons to dislike the show look like a bunch of immature pricks,

seriously there are some people that have legit reasons to dislike the show but they are fair and just, 95% of the people her just make them look like they are part of some

I prefer to laugh about it rather than to be sad. There was potential and aniplex are an experienced bunch.

However, as you said, this is the perfect depiction of a train-wreck.
no thats something like code geass R2, i dont get how you people are thinking this way honestly cause its the reverse of a train wreck, the firts episodes were blatent ripoff and got progressively worse till episode 10 which is where it got good and has from the 3 recent eps been improving,


and like is aid before, if you havent dropped the show yet your just being biased or overreacting, as bad as you guys say it is you make it seem as bad as stuff like school days or kimi ga nozomu or something which unless was alreayd complete should be impossible to sit through week by week, but no, you put up with it past the halfway mark, your either overreacting or so bias against the show that you cant accept that others like it so you continue to watch so your score still has a 100% impact so you can bring the show's score down

you learn this kinda stuff in your first year of AP psychology, its really typical and (not meant to be a insult but this is actually what we learned so if your offended by this dont blame me, blame science) is a indicator of an underdeveloped mind(note if you really are to simple minded to believe

oh right actual discussion, i thought this episode was pretty bad honestly(controdicting my previous statement of it being a reverse trainwreck but actually read into this first), i thought it wasted the potential of the previous ep but gai's detah also saves it, not cause his death was poetic or anything naw i didnt care for him or his death, the potential the show gains in return for the lost potential from last ep is way more higher, with gai dead it could go in gurren laggan's footsteps or do something completely different who knows,

overall the episode was poorly done but may also lead to some good later episodes

2/5

Where's my new op and ed from supercell? DAMN!


^ I was just wondering the same thing (even though Departures is amazing enough).

I like the series and I think I still will, but I'm not sure what's going to happen with Gai gone. Something mind-blowing better happen.

Not going to comment on the psychological aspect of your post as it is based on an odd assumption:

" if you havent dropped the show yet your just being biased or overreacting"
(I left the spelling mistakes on purpose, feeble-minded that I am)

I keep on watching because it is fascinating. Simply trying to imagine how things are going at the aniplex studio makes me smile. Quite simple really.

I would simply like to comment on one thing however:

"cause its the reverse of a train wreck, the firts episodes were blatent ripoff and got progressively worse till episode 10 which is where it got good and has from the 3 recent eps been improving"

(Once again, simpleton aryllies left the spelling and grammatical mistakes)

Between episodes trying to expand on something and episodes condensing 5 episodes into one... you prefer the latter.

Interesting...


Here is my previous post that I took some time writing. It's funny:


At the ultimate Aniplex hideout studio:

Sagacious Aniplex slave: SUPABOSS... we... have... a serious problem.

SUPABOSS: NO PROBLEMS ON MY SHIFT. CAN'T BE THAT BAD, SPEAK YOUR MIND DOG.

Sagacious Aniplex slave: Script writer backup no5 (Codename Geassfanboy) has committed suicide...

SUPABOSS: I HAVE NO USE FOR WEAKLINGS. WHERE IS THE SCRIPT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO WRITE FOR EPISODE 12?!

Macross fan Aniplex slave: I have it your honor, however there's something terribly wrong with it! Inori luvluv isn't singing in...

(cuts across)

Realistic ANiplex slave: Let's face it, this script is more a revenge note than anything my Liege... he was in the middle of a severe depression/hallucination/over-use of substances not approved by the Aniplex court of law A.K.A Houritsu no Keiyaku no Last Battle.

SUPABOSS: HE WAS SUPPOSED TO CONDENSE ANOTHER 3 EPISODES INTO ONE, HE SERVED ME ADMIRABLY FOR THE KISEKI ASSORTMENT, SUCH BRILLIANCE. TELL ME WHAT's WRONG WITH IT?

Spoiler-lover Aniplex Slave:

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER



Very well: I'll make it short my Lord. Shu happens to be amnesiac and Gai is a mermaid who was given CPR by Shu's stoned (good one) sister who then decides to rename him on the spot.

SUPABOSS: EXCELLENT, SUCH A TWIST, CONTINUE SPECK OF DUST.

Spoiler-lover Aniplex slave: Ahem, Gai was in fact Shu's best friend and Mana a teenager with hormones issues. She tried to commit incest with Shu to create a new human race. Fast forward until DA LOSUTO KURISUMASU event where she gives a gun to Gai who mistakes the end of the barrel for a microphone (after watching too many Macross episodes) and then she uses his blood for lipsticks and screams IYA and everybody dies. Except Shu and Gai because they are immortal... or something like that. (More on Gai's immortality later on)

SUPABOSS: INCREDIBLE, GeassFANBOY HAS WRITTEN THE SCRIPT FOR THE NEXT 14 EPISODES BEFORE TAKING HIS OWN LIFE, SUCH DEDICATION.

Sagacious Aniplex slave: Actually, this is only the first 10 mn of the episode.

SUPABOSS: NANI?!! TEMEEE

Spoiler-lover Aniplex slave: Indeed your Magnificence. Gai is in fact immortal and gets up after being cut in half. He says he didn't hit any vital spots despite evidence to the contrary in the previous episode. Old pervert guy wants to marry Inori...

Macross fan Aniplex slave: Nooooooooooooooo!!!!

Spoiler-lover Aniplex slave: Ahem... and he ties her up and puts lipstick on her lips with an expert hand. He may have a secret past at a secret L'Oreal Studio. SUPABOSS from super mario is still here and comments on everything using english words that our japanese audience will simply qualify as being cool. Shu is now revealed as using a secret technique from BlazBlue/Guilty gear known as True king mode. (+10 to all stats except INT unfortunately)

He goes on and fights giant eyeballs which are in fact his sister. Immortal gai has got a gun which...

SUPABOSS: MIND = BLOWN

Realistic Aniplex SLave: Actually... when Gai asks Shu to kill his older sister by stabbing though him, I couldn't help but notice it was quite easy to stab her without perforating Immortal Gai...

Spoiler Lover Aniplex SLave: And kaboom everything is fine. But Gai is dead (but not really he is scheduled to appear in a Princess Utena cross over next year)
CodegeassFANBOY was our last script writer... what can we do now? 

SUPABOSS: PUT DRAMATIC CREDITS AT THE END!!! (This time I may get fired...)

And thus began Guilty Crown season 2...

Still giving GC a 5/10, i literally LOL'd when the flashbacks show Shu being this tough, leader-like brat considering that he's about a total 360 degree opposite. Really, Incest too, like this show can't get any more facepalm-y? Great now Gai is dead, the next step is for Shu to get a harem. Shuuichiro died too, death by index finger lololol and that scene at the end when Shu and Inori were crying, i just LOLed for 10 minutes straight at that.

I'm actually starting to miss Eureka Seven now..at least that show was actually fun for a while before going downhill.

.


i wouldnt laugh at this normally but inori's face when crying looked so freaking stupid, though if you were laughing at it for 10 minutes then you really got some issues you should get checked out, you shouldnt laugh at a death unless they really are that despicable, like i mean freind(20t century boys) or johan(monster) levels of evil

incest?... or not?
Are you joking me? Shu was adopted and all said that before. Haruka is just a step mother. It's either that or Mana is not Haruka's daughter. I am thinking she is girl who has powers. Less you explain the following,

as there are Void users so are Apocalypse Virus users. Far more dangerous according to the spoiler
as they can Nova attack a whole diameter range. Literally rendering all life into dust or should I say specs of the virus remains after it consumes you. Thus I think Mana is a being beyond human.

Also can someone explain WTF is happening in the spoiler
did Mana think Gai was Shu and wanted to rape him or just was warning him to not interfere between him and Shu. Cause I think Gai got infected with intercourse less you tell me that scratch did it or something else did later on.
Yeah I am very confused apart from the dialogue as to what else.

She be insane but enough to still know that she loves Shu is beyond. I still think people's emotions are still there.

i can, its called poor writing,

as for the actual explanation, i guess her emotional outbreak is what cause lost christmas or something, and i think maya was threatening to hurt gai or somethign i dont know, those flashbacks were so poorly done
