Sweet, Sweet Betrayal

If the sword granted double jump, I wonder what ability Shu would get from this =|

In its most convenient way, they nailed down the rules of Shu’s power in this episode. And honestly, I do not like the idea of how that information was instantaneously gained by the main protagonist. Still relying on Geass parallelism, Lelouch did a much better job by exploring his abilities thanks to his curiosity and his desire to master the tool he’ll be using.

In Shu’s case, it simply landed on his lap… This leaves me wondering if Gai had ever found a similar void wielder and have gained the knowledge of the conditions of using such power back then. After all, how did they know of the void’s limitations? And what of his power? How did he gain such abilities and can it “stack” should he obtain the power of kings? After all, he mentioned previously that the power Shu wields should’ve been his.

What I did like in this episode was the twist at the end. I never expected this episode to end up similarly with Mirai Nikki’s episode 3. Meeting up with the “real” Yahiro? yeah right, the “real” Yahiro was the one who sold you out Shu! Fucking damn! That betrayal scene was so frustrating, not because our protagonist experienced the betrayal of a “friend”, but because it was a “legitimate” kind of betrayal, one fitting for a liar and a coward like him. In a way, for someone like Shu who deceives others by wearing a fake smile (ep1), he should’ve prepared himself for this kind of happening.

So the question now is how would Shu’s character develop based from these turn of events? If anything, I do hope he goes back and kill that bastard!

    Story wise, it was mediocre. I could see what was going on from the first scene in the classroom with all the classmates asking questions. The characters are all really predictable. The way I see it, Gai is basically giving Shu and Inori a chance to grow on their own. The betrayal was expected for me from the moment he started defending Inori. I just hope they won’t rush things too much and miss too many opportunities to flesh out some of the plot. In the end though, the eye candy is the thing that keeps me coming back for more XD.

    while everything was predictable, we have to admit, this anime is still enjoyable for this season. Whether it be the fanservice, the intellectual games, the battles, or simply Ai Kayano <3, Guilty Crown is still a good anime to waste time on.

    Yeah, this is still good. If you are looking for ass shots, I think we have other anime that are decent enough this season that covers those. XD

    Kill? Lol I don’t think so. Wimpy main leads don’t kill, they prefer to ‘talk’ it out. They love their friends from the bottom of their heart 🙂 But seriously, would be great if he actually develops after this.

    I don’t think he values his friends much considering how he fakes his smiles and agrees to everything they say. Personally, I’d rather see a true friend as someone who would argue with you 24/7 in order to straighten up your ideals.
