Although it was a little slow and typical at times, I did enjoy this series.
Some characters could’ve had some better writing - like Inori. She’s definitely waifu material and her design is beautiful, but she’s a bit bland. However, I loved the fact that Shu isn’t a stereotypical over-powered male; he actually worked for his power and even then, he did face a lot of setbacks. The plot does have a few holes in it but it did manage to give me a few shockers, where I ended up like “WTF?!”. *Cough* Hare *cough*.
One of the main strengths about Guilty Crown though, is the soundtrack. God, it’s amazing. I never skipped the first intro while watching as I loved the song so much, and I have downloaded the tracks on my phone.
