Storyline Guilty Crown
So, it all started with a virus that broke out in Japan on December 24, 2029, called the Apocalypse Virus. This virus attacks all Japanese citizens and is known as the Lost Christmas incident. Because Japan was unable to cope with this, the United Nations sent an army called GHQ to help Japan (at first), but over time GHQ had become a kind of indirect Japanese government. Is a resistance group called Funeral Parlor who are trying to liberate Japan and release Japan from the hands of GHQ?
The series itself follows the life of Shu Ouma, an ordinary high school student. However, his life changes when he meets Inori Yuzuriha. Inori herself is the vocalist of the band EGOIST, or that’s all Shu knows. Inori also seems to be a member of the Funeral Parlor group being chased by GHQ. Long story short, Inori indirectly brought Shu to the Funeral Parlor group, and there Shu’s adventure began.
Review Guilty Crown
Advantages and disadvantages
First, I like the music and the artwork. The music itself is produced by Ryo of Supercell, making this anime has a great soundtrack. Plus, the band EGOIST also contributed two songs for this anime (they’re supposed to be fictional, but here they are! They also cover the soundtracks of other anime like Psycho-Pass) and the song became a hit in itself that loyal audiences loved. The artwork from red juice is also very nice.
As for the plot… hm, I have to admit something. Maybe I’m too stupid or stupid or something (?), but starting from episode 15, everything goes downhill and goes complete nonsense. I like Shu’s character development from episode 1 to the next episodes. I also like how Shu is finally starting to get a lot of fellows and can be more honest with himself than he was in episode 1. What I’m sorry about is what happened after episode 15.
