I Feel so Sorry for You.
THIS… IS…. SERIOUS BUSINESS! SHE IS NOT CG, SHE’S A DOLL! MORON!!!!!
HOW DARE YOU INSULT INORI BY CALLING HER CG?! SHE’S A DOLL, YOU FOOL!
DAMN RIGHT YOU’RE A MORON.
MAYBE THEY DO THINK ABOUT IT. I WOULD. (BUT WITH BETTER INSULTS)
So… what were they trying to say with this, exactly? Could his words be Shuu’s… GUILTY CROWN?!!!
Show, Don’t Tell
Guilty Crown has been terrible at this so far. Last episode they showed that Gai was a genius by having Shuu and Inori say “Wow, everything went according to plan. Gai is a genius.” This episode was similar.
As one example, the new villain is introduced. Random Bad Guy A: “Is he smart?” Random Bad Guy B: “Almost too smart.” He traced some drug network in a week, too. Great, now we know he’s smart. I’m so scared, they’re going to get caught.
Next we explain the properties of Voids. “How should we do this?”, the creators must have asked.
“I know, we’ll have Shuu recite the Void Rules!”
“Where do these Void Rules come from?”
“He’ll make them up! It’ll be like how God gave Moses the Ten Commandments!”
“But that was cool cause it had lightning bolts, pyrotechnics and idol worship.”
“True… I know! Listen to this! In the middle of reading them, we’ll have Shuu grope a random girl’s chest!”
Come on, this was retarded. Rule 1: Voids can only be drawn from people 17 years old and younger. The reason is unclear, or at least it’s a secret from me. That’s nice. Why do I care? That’s not even a rule, it’s a fact. This is a power that can only be used by pedophiles.
Rule 2: When you withdraw a void from someone, that person loses their memory of the event. Ok. I feel like you could have told this much more effectively just by having Inori lose her memory. Why announce it out of nowhere? And again, it isn’t even a rule.
And the recital of rule two is the cue for some groping.
I didn’t even realize people aside from Inori had Voids though. Was I supposed to?
So this girl is supposed to be a member of the underground resistance. She’s also supposed to be a popular idol. How is it, then, that she is so utterly worthless on her own?
After meeting him the other day, she is now utterly independent on Shuu. She moves into his house, worries that she’s a burden to him, and asks “Shuu. Can I stay with you forever?”
