Guilty Crown Episode 3 – Just Grope Everybody

So at the conclusion of last episode, we were  (not-so-shockingly) shown that Inori had transferred into Shu’s school, because such an event has never occurred in the history of anime ever.  She also decides to come to his house and live there, because that’s breaking new ground in the anime world, and takes her clothes off, because all girls change clothes in someone else’s house while sitting on a table.  Well, at least her tachikoma tried to stop Shu from looking at her.

But really, the main point of this episode was pretty lame for he most part.  Even after Shu has already said he doesn’t want to be involved with Gai and his terrorist group, he still agrees to go with Inori to meet them for whatever reason.  And so, in continuing with this shows sporadic storytelling, Gai tells Shu that someone saw him back at the attack the other day, and that he needs to find him by extracting a certain Void from them.  Pretty much the only information that he gives Shu is that the person he’s looking for is a high-school drug dealer, that Inori knows what the void looks like (and doesn’t really bother to tell Shu), and that he’ll pretty much have to extract everyone’s void at his school to find whoever it is.  The moment Gai says that it’s someone at his school, I think everyone in the entire universe knew who it was, so that was kind of lame, but the way he goes about finding out who the person is is completely ridiculous.

“And by that, I mean, ‘are you ready for some exposition?'”

 

So basically Shu has to run around and grope everyone in his entire school, which is completely absurd.  The first time he tires, he screws it up and grabs some girls tits because he didn’t do the Void thing right, but even if he did do it right, there were people  everywhere.  I mean, just because the person you extract it from forgets what happens to them, that doesn’t mean that everybody else won’t notice you’re pulling something out of someones body, with a magical glowing circle underneath you and silver ribbons flying everywhere.  Someone even takes a picture of his groping her and puts it on this universe’s version of WhatsApp, that’s how many people there were around him.  So after Inori tells him that she actually didn’t tell him how to do it right, he runs around in broad daylight extracting Voids from people.  I mean, come on, it’s not like what happens when he does it is the most subtle thing ever, there is no way someone wouldn’t see him, especially when he’s doing it in the middle of school.

Great writing and storytelling at its finest

 

Finally after Shu finds who he’s looking for, the most obvious person in the entire school, the guy spouts off some crap about shooting heroin because people don’t understand him and he has to act like someone he’s not (which is apparently a drug junkie), Shu grabs his Void and knocks him out, but won’t let Inori shoot the crackhead because he’s the main character and we have to like him, and he has to be an upstanding guy.  Well, everything works out happily and Shu and the stoner go back to being friends… or DO they??!?!??? While riding home on the train Inori tells Shu that she wants to live with him and have his babies and whatever, but then, it stops in front of the police, the doors open, and Shu is pushed out by his supposed friend.  Then some creepy purple haired guy with Asuka’s doll comes up and says that Shu’s getting thrown in the slammer. Sucks to be you, bro.

Gonna get raped!

 

Ahahaha, Shu’s going to get his shit rocked in prison, if he actually ends up going, but I’m sure everyone will just save him, and that’ll be his reason to join Funeral Parlor.  Once again, this episode had a lame story arc, that only got interesting at the end, so maybe, MAYBE, something will actually happen in the next episode, but I doubt it.  The music in the episode was bad-ass, but I’m not really so sure that it fit in the scenes they put it in, but nonetheless, bad-ass.  I’ve said it before, but why does such good music and animation need to be wasted on  such a lame story?

  1. I wonder if they’ll go to the beach next episode? And meet an all-girl rock band. And a perverted old man who will teach the protagonist about protecting his friends. And an adorable HAMSTER ROBOT. Who will reset time in the last episode!

    • Well, we can only hope this show can elevate itself to such amazing heights of storytelling as you have displayed. Who knows? Maybe they’ll even stay in a bath house/inn while on the beach? THAT would be original.
