Guilty Crown #17 — Aye or Noe

February 16th, 2012

 

I can’t even tell if that’s supposed to be Nay or No.

Impressions:

Sweet. Finally back to those episodes where I just have to summarize what happened, make incredulous noises, and call it a day. Let’s start from last week then. Remember the cliffhanger with blood splattering everywhere from Inori attacking ol Still-Don’t-Care-To-Learn-Her-Name? It was Mana, not Inori. Okay, not surprising there. She used her magical disease crystals to stab her in the hand (then went crying to Shu later about being a monster). Pres was so shocked by this that she curled up in her room sobbing until she got a mysterious call. But someone discovered her in the middle of her seditious acts so she prostituted herself to get out of it. Yep. Not five minutes after showing both Shu and Inori becoming dangerously unhinged, they felt the need to remind us who the ‘real’ good guys are by whoring one side out.

Then once the attack began with an army of Void users (forgetting that one of them took down an entire battalion before), Shu’s entire army decided to betray him. Then Gai appeared, cut off Shu’s arm and absorbed his power. Ah, Guilty Crown. Why do you do the things that you do? This is an actual question. I don’t know what’s gotten into the water in the writing room at Production IG lately, but there is no way in hell that it can be good for them.

    Wow…Just…Wow…Is this really the same guy who wrote Code Geas…?

  • TEd says:

    who cares he still got inori so he good

  • Random says:

    Pff this show is so unrealistic. In real life it would take weeks for the UN to reach a resolution.

    Also, Shuu really seems to be having a bad week. Abandoned by his mom. His love interest dies. Everyone betrays him. And now the world plans to destroy his homeland. Oh and he had his arm cut off.

    • moridin84 says:

      Didn’t it take weeks, or even months? They were probably deciding on it since the ‘wall when up’.

  • K says:

    who cares? logic doesn’t exist in guilty crown, only entertainment value.

  • jingoi says:

    Here’s something to fear, what if you didn’t have access to the internet and this was shown on Adult Swim, having limited access to anime, you end up thinking this was a great series. I know this description would apply to me if I didn’t have a pc.

  • Burnout says:

    It’s like the show itself *knows* how much Shu sucks, and has given up on character development for him.

    They’re really *reaching*; I bet this series cost them an arm and a leg. Well, at least Shu’s hARMLESS now.

  • anon says:

    I don’t know. I’m starting to like this show, just by how absurd it is. I hope Shu kills them all at the end.

  • Kefit says:

    Hahaha holy shit I can’t believe this episode. This show really never ceases to surprise me. I think some of my friends might be interested in whatever drugs the writing staff is on.

    And the bgm staff too. What the hell was up with this week’s persistent lounge piano?

    Also I guess now they have to bring Hare back to heal Shuu’s arm. Unless Shuu gets an APOCALYPSE VIRUS ARM. I guess I’d be cool with either outcome.

    • Alisana says:

      I think he ends up getting an artificial arm. Watch back through the intro song and you can see a crystal-like arm with glowly blue-green things running through it (0:49-0:51). You can then see the back of his hand glowing with the same colour when he is using Inori’s void at 0:56-0:58 (Watch ep 17 to match up times)

  • Haba says:

    I sincerely hope for a bad ending where Shu kills everyone (the GAR, his mom, the cripple, the loli). In the last few minutes he is shown embracing Inori, only to realize that she has been dead all the time. Nukes fall, credits roll.

    Only then will I be able to tolerate another four-five episodes of the retard whining and crying.
