Guilty Crown. Maaaaaan, Guilty Crown. My feelings on this show are somewhat well documented, and as you might understand picking just one moment from this colossal trainwreck is a nigh impossible task. I could list all possible ones, but that would just read like a breakdown of the entire plot.

By what criteria do we judge a suitable moment from Guilty Crown. When it jumped the shark? But was there ever a time when it wasn’t flying high over the ocean? Its most offensive scene? Offending what? My morals, my intellect, my very being? Its dumbest bit? See my arguments above against listing all possible moments.

No, I had to go a different route. This crowning moment is chosen not for its stupidity or offensiveness or anything like that, for there were plenty worse, but for being the one moment where I lost the ability to even articulate any thoughts or questions regarding the staff’s creative decisions. Other times I could at least see what they were trying to accomplish, or it was so obvious that they had no idea what they were doing and were just pulling whatever they could out of their arses. This one scene though… this one scene.

Guilty Crown

Oh my, Guilty Crown.

Announced to be airing as a 2-cour series in the noitaminA timeslot, directed by Death Note director Tetsurō Araki and with the screenwriters for Code Geass, Hiroyuki Yoshino and Ichirō Ōkouchi, all of this being handled by the studio Production I.G. – a studio with a track record for excellent series – Guilty Crown was understandably being hyped to hell and back. The general description for it included talk of a mysterious virus, strange powers, and an anti-government resistance group. Aside from the virus stuff, it sounded awfully lot like the good part of Code Geass, and with the staff to back that up. Exciting stuff! Everybody was eager, anxious in their anticipation, predicting it would be the best show of the fall season. What could go wrong?

Well, it all started when it began airing…

WARNING: Better be using a better device than he is because this is looong and image heavy. Also spoilers I guess.
