      Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Drama Length: 11 episodes "Shu's desperate quest to save Inori from the mysterious spectre known as Daath sends him hurtling through a horrifying flashback. Glimpses of the boy he once was combine with fragments of painful memories to hint at the harrowing origins of the Apocalypse Virus. And though Shu manages to save his beloved songstress, he and his friends find themselves quarantined to the warzone that was once their own school. Meanwhile, nefarious GHQ agents seek to incite chaos by turning this frightened band of young rebels against each other. Division in the ranks - and the shocking death of a dear friend - pushes Shu to the brink of madness, exposing Inori and everyone he loves to an eerily familiar enemy. As the terrifying truth about the power of the King's Right Hand emerges, Shu and his comrades must place their faith in one another - and fight for the future of their world!" The thrilling conclusion to Guilty Crown after part 1 left us with such a cliffhanger! Inori has been abducted by someone else who can pull out her Void and Gai is seriously wounded trying to save Shu. This sets up the premise for us being introduced to Shu's big sister as well as why he never talks about his past. Plot twists abound, the world is ending, and friends are dying all around Shu. Maybe I'm a sucker for some of the usual cliches, but I really enjoyed every bit of this series. It didn't try to mix in slapstick comedy on top of the heavy action and drama like a lot do. Fanservice is minimal. Shu and Inori's romance is pretty awkward, but what can you expect from a social recluse and a weapon? Aside from my own experience, pretty much most of the reviews for Guilty Crown have been pretty terrible. A lot of people got through the first season and then stopped. Sadly, it's because they couldn't stop comparing it to other series instead of enjoying it on its own merits. A lot of the stuff said really irked me for some reason. No show is perfect and everything is subjective, but you can't pass judgment on a series that you've never even finished. Easily offended? Might want to stay away from the internet and TV. Standard cliches? Every other series uses them, too. It's fine to not like a show, but don't base it off of others. If you don't feel like spending the money on season 1, there is a 45 minute condensed version of it in the extras here. It is EXTREMELY condensed. If you feel that you might get bored watching 11 episodes, then it's a good start, but you'll be a bit confused by a lot of the stuff from Part 2. Watch it at least once and decide if you enjoy it. I know I did.
