Guilty Crown 08 — Umi da!

Whoo hoo! Just what I was waiting for!

Guilty Crown delivers just what Inori was lacking! But still, I don’t feel like this is enough…

Neko-mimi maids. Now we’re getting somewhere. Something is still missing though…

That’s what we needed! More girls groping each other in the bath! Thank you Guilty Crown!

Shuu is a Turd

I’m generally not prone to name calling (ok, maybe I am). But this guy really deserves it. Not only is he dull-witted, weak and pathetic, he’s a complete ass. There are some very good reasons why Shuu has no friends.

Let’s look at what he does this episode. Shuu leads Souta to be alone with Inori so that he can lure him to the secret base. That’s a bit nefarious, but practical. We’ll give Shuu the benefit of the doubt here.

Then Souta confesses to Inori.

And what does Shuu do, good friend that he is?

He runs up in the middle of the confession, claims Inori as his own, and knocks his “friend” unconscious.

But wait! That’s not the worst of it!

Shuu then proceeds to accuse Souta of being a bad friend! Oh dear. Souta is so inconsiderate, isn’t he?

And then Souta thanks Shuu for being honest with him, and they’re best friends again. *sigh*

Not only is Shuu the world’s biggest dick, he’s also a moron:

Dude. Seriously? She’s in the same resistance group as you. There’s nothing wrong with “using her” if she wants to help.

More Whining

  • How does Shuu know absolutely nothing about his father?
  • I continue to hate Shuu’s mother.
  • Despite being such an ass, Shuu didn’t even manage to confess himself.
  • How was the entire resistance surrounding them unseen?
  • I wonder who that priest guy is.
  • I hated that scene where Shuu and Inori are standing on the boat, their hair blowing in the wind, talking about the nature of Voids and how Shuu’s hand is touching people’s hearts (and making them recoil in horror). This is what I consider pretentious:

  1. Just when I thought that I might be able to at least tolerate Shu, he pulls that jerk move. “How dare he do the exact same thing that I would do in that situation!” -_-

    On the flip side, I’m liking all of the other characters more and more as this show progresses. I’m just waiting for the episode when they say, “No, Shu. We’re not your friends. We just tolerate you because of the power you accidentally got.”

      This would be amazing. I think it would improve my opinion of this show dramatically. Inori actually told him this already, didn’t she? But then they seem to have forgotten this… Of course, the way she told him was an equally jerky move. Perhaps they do make a good couple.

      1. That’s a good point. Although it seems like the show can’t seem to decide whether Inori is a damsel in distress or a badass gunslinger girl.

        1. Yeah, it doesn’t make sense but at the same time anime does it all the time. The girl is cool and a complete badass, yet still a damsel on distress. Because in the end, women need to depend on men, of course.

  2. I wonder how many other fanservice episodes we’ll get till the end.
    At this point of the story, that’s the only interesting thing that remained in Guilty Crown…:D

    Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare! Hare!

    1. Yeah, Shuu doesn’t have any friends. Now we know why.

      I think at the end he considered him a friend though… maybe.
