Ep 9

Guilty Crown wishes it was this dumb.  This was like a Mike Judge movie except without the one guy with normal intelligence.  (Apologies to whoever I just stole that joke from, I can't remember who made it first).

You know what gave me the most entertainment while watching this episode?  Browsing /a/ in the background.  That was where I found this image macro which sufficiently summarizes my feelings about this ep.

You know what's missing from this episode? The narrator Nakata Jouji not singing this:

My thoughts about this episode and the characters in general:


Why did I ever choose to watch this anime? Time to brace myself for the next one...

Yep.  Virgins.

Yes, that's the only thing I got out of this episode.  Why do you ask?

Can't disagree.  Most awkward teenage kiss ever.

Wouldn't it be nice if Sae's being voiced by say, Kanazawa Hana? A WHOLE LOT NICER.

And oh Junichi, why are you always a sap to Miya's trolling...?

Ep 11

Haruka would survive the zombie apocalypse.  They'd lose interest in her when they realize that she has no brains.

Ugh.  The wedding scene was one the most cringe-worthy moments in this entire series, and that's saying a lot.  But geez, did anyone stop to think about Junichi in all this forced proposal shit?  I mean, it's rare when I sympathize with Junichi, but no teenager should be pressured to propose just because his girlfriend has a family tradition.  He didn't sign up for that.

Morishima Lovely Haruka.
Morishima Sexy Jessica.

I'm going to punch their next baby, so it can be "Morishima Ugly Something".  Nothing wrong with having an adjective for a middle name.  Of course, someone needs to remind these morons that the cute naming convention, which would read fine in Japanese styling (as printed above) would look stupid as hell in Western styling.  Haruka Lovely Morishima doesn't quite have the same impact, since the intent is to "describe" Haruka herself, not her family.  Thus, how'd they even come up with that shit?

By the by, this episode has taught me something (and no I wont be using this for my WILTW article):  one Haruka is bad enough.  Two is the apocalypse.  I've heard of people looking like each other, but usually it's just a passing resemblance.  Someone having the same hairstyle, body style, face, AND personality is too much.  Just too much.

Name your baby "Sexy".  Nothing wrong with that.

Never mind annoying, it was ****ing lazy writing to basically introduce a clone of Haruka to be a plot device.  Can't even come up with an original character.

Actually, I'm not sure if it's necessarily lazy writing. What I think is, the writers are just being trolls: "What if we make a Caucasian version of Haruka..."

Jesus Christ, the sheer stupidity of this episode makes Guilty Crown seem like a reasonably intellectual show.

Iím sorry, but you canít compare the pile of dog poop called Guilty Crown with Amagami SS. Junichi is just perverted like any guy his age would be. I donít see anything wrong with him. When you have hormones shooting at you at every second of your life, you will do stupid stuff. Iím sure we have all done stupid things and we probably will do more stupid things when we are in love. I find it normal. Though I still really enjoy Kaoru and Ayatsujiís arc, and I am left wanting for more.

Sorry S-K.  I'm now completely convinced based on his obvious virgin status with the other girls to believe that there's no way in hell he managed to inject man chowder into any orifice of Nanasaki's body.  I mean, he had Morishima wrapped in only a bath towel, in a hotel room, with her begging him to only look at her... and he somehow managed to escape that, purity intact.  I now believe that Junichi is the ****ing Houdini of Chastity.

As if we needed more evidence, this ****ing episode man.  This ****ing episode.  How in the name of Mohammad Ali is he not hitting this.  I know Haruka's dumber than a mud-fence post, but what does she have to do, wear a sign saying "Pluck This Cherry"?  And then he has the gall to basically call her mom a slut:



This ****ing guy.  Apparently he never saw the time-skip, because the rest of the audience was totally leaning on their palms with the faux drama that was "Haruka's leaving! ARGH!".  Oh well, at least he manned up a bit by the end, as if that saves this pile of trash.  Only thing about this episode worthwhile was a great shot of Sae-boob.
