Shu is not excited for Christmas because of reasons…
|Welcome back readers! Fosh here to bring you day two of the exciting 12 days of Anime! So, what was a fun memory for me this year? Looking back I would have to say that Guilty Crown stood out for me even though it completely failed to blow us away. However, reviewing it was a different story for me!|
This is how Guilty Crown should have officially ended!
Ask just about any anime fan or aniblogger if they have ever heard of Guilty Crown and most of them will say yes, but it was so terrible! They will follow it up soon. For me personally going into this series I had high hopes for something amazing because the production crew had just about everything in the right spot from amazing visuals, killer soundtrack and a very interesting world to explore. I mean all of that had me seriously thinking what could possibly go wrong? I remember it was after the first few episodes that pushed us all to realize wow this series is absolutely horrible! You would ask, what made it so bad? Bad writing that’s what and honestly that reason alone is probably why Guilty Crown failed to keep us interested in the daily life of Mr. Ouma Shu or my personal favorite OH MA SHOE! If you followed my posts, you know I never got tired of this joke and even continued some to Accel World whenever I had the chance.
A special cast of interesting characters and Dan Eagleman!
While OH MA SHOE did his thing with Inori every week, there are a few side characters that stole the spotlight like the moe moe hacker girl Tsugumi and yes she might only exist to attract all the loli fans or moe lovers out there, but whenever she was in a scene you could always expect high doses of energy and excitement and of course lots of random fan service. Speaking of that subject, next up I would say Ayase because I share a lot in common with her but she was also another fun character who did not let her disability prevent her from fighting alongside the other able bodied members of Undertaker with the help of a remote controlled giant robot. So, do you remember Ayase’s awesome void powered Strike Witch moment? That was easily the best thing ever, especially with the kick ass music in the background…so who else stood out? How about someone named Dan Eagleman?! That guy was quite the character whenever he appeared, he always got you so pumped for something exciting. Finally every series needs an oddball villain and who better to fill that role than a crazy mad scientist Segai! Sure he comes off as a super creepy dude because he is REALLY interested in Shu’s void powers (almost on the brink of being a stalker), but whatever you think about him he was still very entertaining to watch.
Wrapping up the fun
Rest in piece good ole truck-chan! You will be missed.
I ask myself that question every morning Ayase.
Dan Eagleman! Really loves his invisible guns.
Also the lovely missing hand puns never ever got old.
Even though Guilty Crown crashed and burned before it could become something amazing, the blog world jumped on it and turned a failed series into something fun and hilarious every week. Like Draggle who created songs and had people sing them? Those were always epic. While you had that going around, Shinmaru had us play guess the dumb aka vote for the stupid facepalm moments of that episode. Over at Sea Slugs Team blog Otou-san took more of an episodic approach to the series, but he always added his own mix of humor just like my meme shot inspired pictures and posts. And last but not least Ajthefourth over on Altair and Vega decided to tackle OH MA SHOE’s character with a cool editorial post. So, all and all Guilty Crown was a great highlight of 2012 for me and a lot of others out there, but thanks for reading and stay tuned for more 12 days of anime themed posts on Metanorn!
Ayase prepares for her own solo series! Hey I can dream damn it…
