Story Summary
(Taken From Guilty Crown Wiki)


Guilty Crown's setting begins in 2029 when an unidentified "Apocalypse Virus" spreads and plunges Japan into a state of emergency in a chaos known as the "Lost Christmas". An international organization known as the GHQ intervenes with martial law and restores order to Japan at the cost of its independence.

Ten years later in 2039, Shu Ouma, a 17-year-old high school student who keeps to himself in school, meets Inori Yuzuriha, the lead singer for Egoist, while visiting one of his favorite places on his way home from school. Shu is a big fan of Inori, a singer who has taken the Internet world by storm. However, he also discovers the other side of her, which is that she is a member of "Funeral Parlor", a resistance group that aims to liberate Japan from the GHQ. Shu starts taking a part in the actions of "Funeral Parlor" and the "King's Mark" appears on his right hand. This "mark" bestows on him the power to reach inside another person's body and extract and materialize a weapon from it.

Characters

Shu

Gender: Male
Age: 17
Height: 172 cm (5'7")
Nationality: Japanese
School: Tennōzu First High School, 2-A Class
Team: Funeral Parlor

One of the main protagonists of Guilty Crown, who's right hand holds a special power called "The Power of the King". This ability allows him to extract weapons from his friends known as a "Void" which is a manifestation of a person's personality.

He is an unsociable 17-year-old young man who usually tends to stay out of people's way so as to not cause them any trouble. However, this changes when he meets a girl named Inori Yuzuriha. From that moment on, he must learn how to make friends because of his ability "The Power of King".

Personally I believe that the team have done a brilliant job on Shu as they made the character design top notch with great character development throughout the anime.

Inori

Age: 16-17
Height: 166 cm (5'5")
Occupation: Singer, student
Affiliation: Funeral Parlor/Undertaker

Inori Yuzuriha is one of the main protagonists of the anime Guilty Crown and a member of the resistance guerrilla group called "Funeral Parlor". She is also the voice of the internet artist Egoist who sings to release her emotions.

Inori is a very soft, quiet, and sweet girl, who is also very determined to complete her missions successfully and without fail (shown when she was threatened but didn’t show any sign of fear, even when she was about to be killed). She also seems to think she’s a burden to others but tries to protect the people close to her.

She usually comforts Shu and gives him words of strength when she can tell he’s feeling weak and helpless. Gai is dear to Inori, and she tells Shu that he is the one that gave her a name and a world, when no one else has.

As a member of Funeral Parlor, Inori is extremely skilled in forms of combat such as hand-to-hand fighting and marksmanship, to the point where she is able to outmatch and kill several soldiers of the GHQ forces by herself.

On the Whole, I think Inori is a very cute character as she develops a LOT throughout the anime.

What to Improve upon

Well it is pretty hard to say what to improve, as i felt it was a masterpiece but if i had to picky for what to improve, i would say the ending on episode 22 was rushed in my opinion as first time watchers may get confused as they might agree with, i would make the ending slower so everybody would understand as episode 22 is very important.

Fox OUT :3
