I seriously don't see how Shuu can do anything.
He's not a strategist. Not a mecha pilot. A terrible marksman. And He's missing an arm...
But then again this story is full of twists, and after seeing OP spoilers/teasers, I guess it's just a matter of time before he goes Super Saiyan like Gai has O_o

And I'm liking Inori more after this episode.

Japanese otaku are known for being rather superficial. Why do you think so much fanservice/moe/harem is currently produced?

The fact that Rider made it into the list is impressive.

But then by that reasoning Inori should be under a moe char. Instead the closest moe is in third and fifth.

Inori is a Rei clone with sex doll appeal and no character til this episode. She was only supposed to look pretty and get the otaku to buy the overpriced figmas. And it worked.

Hmmm yea I can see the logic in that. I guess she just never struck me as the true moe type. Which I abhor to the greatest degree may it be scorched from this earth.

Moe as a concept is very subjective. Kaiji can be moe, Inori can be moe, Mio from K-On can be moe. At all depends on your viewpoint. However, I am glad that at least some good characters are on that chart. Although Shoe as number 1 still baffles me.

yea when I think of Moe it's always the cheerful, in your face, trying too damn hard to be cutesy and with way way way too big eyes. K-on chars fitting that category perfectly.

I have had it with the Japanese otakus. What the fuck is so good about Shu? I can sympathise him, but there's so many other characters that are greater than this pathetic piece of shit. The same deal with Inori--she does not even have a logical character development until ep 18!By the way, who is the number six girl? Can anyone tell me? I can tell why plotless animes like IS:Infinite Stratos can get popular, as it has a certain 'appeal' to a type of audience(I am one of them btw), but the fact that Guilty Crown is popular amongst Japanese fans is just extraordinary--because usually, my taste is pretty otaku as well. I am truly amazed. What is so good about this show?I bet it must be the music and art which hyped this series' popularity.

I bet there was a GC related article this month. That's why there are no T&B characters this time (no article featuring the series). It's Newtype. Go figure.

By the way, who is the number six girl? Can anyone tell me?

OK so let’s start having as much fun as I could have had if I had more time to post. First of all the preview.

lengthy and detailed post

Initially I tried to quote your whole post but it seems that there are certain restrictions I wasn't aware of. Anyway, I'm just quoting you to bump your post since it's one of the more detailed and analytical in this thread and definitely worth a read. To be frank there's no point where I could disagree; kudos to you.

Huh, as a big fan of this show I knew that it would be somewhat popular in Japan but who would've guessed that it's *that* good? Interesting indeed.

I don't think it has much to do with the characters. The results are caused by the show's popularity.
No matter how crappy Guilty Crown is, its popularity is at the top of this season.
Not just in Japan, look at how fast this tread goes compared to other shows and you will understand what I mean.
So the show sells, and its characters are known wider, and so they get more votes, that's all.

Being watched does not mean it's popular. It depends on whether people truly likes that show. Besides, opinion polls are generally conducted within a limited number of respondents. Just because they watch the show, does not mean they love it.

I can't believe Kira is still ranked. Last time I saw that ranking must have been years ago. What is their fascination with Kira?!


There's not much to say about the episode. Same bullshit as usual. I'm starting to think the staff set out with the mindset to make the worst anime ever created.

Good? That's about popularity which is irrelevant from quality. Though, it seems that the worse the thing is the more popular it comes. Take "artists" like Justin Bieber example. That pic shouldn't make anyone feel proud, if anything then being ashamed for liking this shit.

I don't think it loving it or not makes much difference in popular vote though. Because if a voter does not watch the show, he/she will not vote for it. So the show that gains more audiences gains more votes statistically.

And the voter most probably have watched way more shows than guilty crown. You do realise that the characters on the role represent merely some of the shows, right?There's probably way more characters in the actual poll, the one shown on the magazine is merely shows the top ten favored characters.There are waymore popular shows out there such as fairy tail, naruto, bleach and one piece who are definitely more logical and supported. Somehow, it just surprises me that none of the characters from these shows made it to the poll whilst someone like OUMA SHU , GAI and INORI YUZURIHA did. Moreover, if you dislike a show, you most probably won't vote for it. I just don't understand why people liked this show so much to the point where they would vote for it's poorly developed characters as favourites. Just a question, when was this poll ACTUALLY conducted? As some of us may know, this show was just bad apart from the first episode. And I would really want to know what is so good about Ouma Shu and Inori Yuzuriha. Can someone actually list the qualities of these two characters that sets them apart from other characters? IN terms of moeness, Inori loses to Mio, YUi and Saber--she's a kuudere sex doll. In terms of fighting prowess, she definitely loses to saber. For Ouma, he's a subpar commander compared to Lelouche--not once was he able to execute a 'just as planned' operation. Even Gai's plans often end up as ass-pulls rather then genuine 'just as plans'. In terms of fighting prowess, they most certainly lose to Rider and Gintoki.As for manliness, there's simply just no one who can beat Broskander on that poll. I just can't think of any reason why Ouma and Yuzuriha can beat the other characters on this poll.

Ah, I see your point there. Me too can't fathom why JUMP's mainstream characters don't get any high spot in popular votes given the shows' popularity. Maybe mainstream is outside the radar of voters? Maybe those voters are Moe-oriented otakus? I don't know. But anyway, I still think the show's popularity has major effect on character popular vote. Take someone who has no more than 24-minute screentime like Iwasawa as an example. Her performance in ISML must be resulted by the show's popularity.

And about people so liking it. I actually think people likes Guilty Crown because if they really hate it they will eventually drop it. I am one who think Guilty Crown is crappy but still like it, just like how I loved all garbage Infinite Stratos threw at me. I don't think character's characteristics mean much. People just love the characters because they love them.

Not too surprised, I mean Newtype readers are all mecha fans. I like Shu is in first, but I like Kyon is in top 5 even more... He's has been in the top 5 ever since march of 2010, him and lelouch is not going to get dropped from the ranks are they?

After watching Code Geass R2 I didn't think there would be any anime produced that is more confusing and makes less sense than that.

Well... Guilty Crown just did it.
I don't get any of the plot anymore. I just watch it for the action now XD

Yeah, so like..how is shu not dead from blood loss? Inori turned super siayn, guessing thats her trueself, which represents the long sword that shu always be taking out of her chest.
I agree that gai seems to play a better role when he's playing the villain. Still, this anime is just..weird now. A lot of holes that aren't filed to answer questions.

There has been one week between airing those two episodes, quite obvious that he has received treatment during this time. Joking aside, most likely he has been treated by Inori in some way. (as during the episode you see a short fragment with them sitting beneath the bridge.)

However, more importantly is that Shu has control over Inori. I foresee this being an important factor in the final of this show.

How about Shu being more likable and relateable than Gai?

OR, Newtypes fans will just vote for the main characters of a mecha anime?
