Guilty Crown 09 — A Love Poem for Shuu Ouma

Dear Shuu,
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love the thought of how thou cherish me,
Shielding my body from iniquity.

I love thee to the breadth and depth and height
My soul can reach, when hiding out of sight
I follow thee through alleyways to reach
The site of thy glorious victory.

I love thee for thy unrivaled wisdom,
Surpassed by naught but thy humility.

I love thee for the way thou hast no friends—
Thou art mine, mine alone, untill the end.

Thy lips speak truth; thine eyes betray a glint
Of steadfast lovingkindness thou dost send,
Thy loyalty unquestioned by thy friends.

I love thee in the silent dark of night—
Take me and use me,  to thy heart’s delight!
My heart flutters; unbridled passion known.

Draw out my heart, and take it as thy own.

— Hare Menjou

Knowing How to Get Ahead

If only Shuu had half the charisma of our villains.

This is the guy who also asked about Shuu, “Is it wrong to want to get to know the person you’re in love with?” Now, of course, he is a much more worthy rival for Hare than Inori is. But they’re both too good for Shuu.

I Don’t Care

I don’t care about Shuu. I don’t care about Inori. I don’t care about this kid who died. Lots of screaming and dramatic music aren’t going to help, they’re only going to make me laugh. I can’t stand this show in general. But hey, it’s the most fun of anything I’m watching (with the occasional exception of Penguindrum) to write about, so I’ll stick with it.

  1. I stopped watching this show after the 4th episode, less because it was totally sucky and more because I had other better things to do with my time.

    Uhm, I am far behind, but didn’t Shuu see his “buddy’s” sick sibling? And yet, here he is, still calling him a traitor (which is true, but having a heart doesn’t hurt).

    You seem to have had quite a bit of fun writing this post. And, although I haven’t seen this episode, or the previous 5, your writing amused me. :P

      Hooray, one more reason why Shuu is an asshole!

      And yeah, this was a fun post. :)

  2. BEST REVIEW EVER, just saying <3 LOL @ the poem style very creative.

    Poor Hare! You have to knock Shu over the head and tell him your feeelingsssss before he gets caught up in being with Inori all the time. I still will cheer Hare on because she is so much better for Shu than boring little Inori, or Ayase? I have no clue…but I shouldn't count on GC to provide "romance" there are far better shows out there for that…

    One great thing I found the music! Whoa, during the scene with Shu going into Jun's mind was fantastic…So how long do you think Shu will be "disturbed" after killing Jun? I give him two full episodes or three..

    I should have my review posted later! Gotta wait on my tag partner xD

    1. Glad you liked it! I’m looking forward to your post.

      Honestly, I think Inori is the best match for Shuu. They deserve each other.

      I’m not sure how long to bet for Shuu. He does have no heart, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he got over it during the next episode. But then again, Guilty Crown seems to like to do whatever would piss me off the most, so I wouldn’t be surprised to spend several episodes emoing out either.

      1. LOL Yes! I can picture Shu the next day like, killed anyone? PSSH I have no idea what you are talking about…Shu then goes home and listens to depressing music = Good to go on missions

  3. “I don’t care about Shuu. I don’t care about Inori. I don’t care about this kid who died. Lots of screaming and dramatic music aren’t going to help, they’re only going to make me laugh. I can’t stand this show in general.”

    ^Pretty much thoughts for this episode and probably the rest of the show now XD
