I don't think I've ever come across such a wonderfully mediocre show that got carried by such an amazing soundtrack, beautiful animation, and growth by the main character that I ended up left with the feeling that I just watched one of the top 5 anime series of a decade.

The Everlasting Guilty Crown Thread... never forget the sacrifices Shu made /a/

He’s dull 99% of the time, but becomes the baddest man on the planet when he is in a pinch during a fight... which is really boring to see... he's the god damned Gary Stu of Shinji Ikari type characters and I really wish this could've been Gai's show.
>>
That shit was absolutely retarded. The first half was decent, but everything after the whole walling off part was sheer mediocrity. The main character suddenly just transforms overnight, and then suddenly just transforms back into his original self. That wasn't growth, it was a load of bullshit that in now way represented how a real person would react to that situation. I mean the way the characters changed throughout the series was completely retarded. Any moderately likable character became shitty, save a few. There were too many betrayals, it honestly got to the point where it wasn't shocking or disappointing, it was just business as usual for the show. I mean this guy is supposed to have "the power of kings" but he doesn't even have basic leadership skills unless his arms been ripped off.

>Shinji Ikari type characters
What? In no way does he even come close to being anything like Shinji. Unless by "Shinji Ikari type" you mean completely unlikable. In that case I agree, but at least Shinji was a realistic representation of a human being. If I do recall, didn't he instigate the resurrection of that insane bitch, who he had previously attempted to prevent being brought back to life, and then proceed to do nothing but hug her and have both of them die? It was one of the most retarded things I had ever seen someone write. Furthermore, didn't he justify this bullshit because he wanted to hug her or some other stupid shit? I mean it was completely retarded, if it was "his show" GC would have been even more ass-backwards.

She was cute, sure, but otherwise was fairly bland. Although I will say, her singing brought the quality of that show up tenfold.

When everyone betrayed Shu and she was the only one to stay on his side I have forgiven her all the weaker moments. And when she smiles she is the cutest anime character I have ever seen.
>>
This show had all the key components to be at the very least good when I look at the production side of things and the names attached to this but the story was such utter shit. It made me honestly frustrated such a talented director like Araki has to have this blemish on his credits, but this is his favorite show he's ever directed and worked on. I think it's one of the favorite shows his whole staff has worked on.

What the hell.

>>102243453
Right, then she died. The author killed off the best part of the show in a series of increasingly retarded asspulls. I swear that guy is better off making ntr porn.

That doesn't really change the fact that the events leading up to her death made almost no sense considering the one who killed her attempted to save her like 12 episodes prior to her death

>>102244832
Shu wasn't able to operate every single void at the same time with his SSS+ efficiency and Soda on his own could at best open a can. Fuck him anyway, he killed Hare.
>>
>>102244975
You'd think the one void he would want to use is the one that can open all doors, considering how they were cut off from the outside world. If they wanted to escape that is. Maybe all Ouma Hitler wanted to do was play Hitler at school for all eternity.
>>
>>102244832
Soda's void was only good when Shu used it.

The system had two sides:

1) The Form
2) The Power

Soda had no power and therefor his void was useless. Shu can't hold all voids at the same time.

Great character design, soundtrack, voice acting, animation, completely ruined by hare-brained directing and a plot with the attention span of a goldfish. This show defines "wasted potential".

I marathoned it to catch up with it when it was airing. I actually liked most of it except the finale and ending.

so why the hell did inori turn into some catgirl near the end
>>
>>102249808
Catgirl?
You mean void monster.

That happend because Mana was partly in her body. A part of Mana managed to get into Inori when the ceremony happend at the end of the first half.

This is also the reason why she killed those student, hurt Arisa and tried to rape Shu.

Why did they think that leaving Arisa alive and Shu as a cripple in French would make a good ending?
