Guilty Crown episode 20

Now this is what I call a surprise. It’s been some time now since I enjoyed watching Guilty Crown as much as I did now. This week’s episode was full of surprises. It was rather nice to get to know more about Shu’s parents and whatnot. I just hope that they can keep it up until the end, because that could leave me with a pretty good impression of the show in general.

It seems that Koudou and Kurosu were good friends back in the day. Both of them were scientists and both of them were working on all sorts of projects regarding that strange virus. I still don’t fully understand the situation between Koudou and Kurosu in which they grew apart. To me it just seems that Koudou was simply hungry for power and knowledge. Kurosu was hungry for knowledge too, but for the right reasons. He just wanted to get to know more about that virus in order to help humanity. He never wanted an army of Void users. No, that was all Koudou’s work. Including this whole Gai situation, it’s all Koudou’s doing.

Still, this week’s episode wasn’t all that depressing. Some of it was pretty funny, like that scene where Shu’s parents were, ahem, getting to know one another a little bit better. I don’t think that that was the turning point for Koudou though. It was when that blond kid showed up, telling them everything about this virus. He even told them about Mana and Shu, and how they’re conntected together. That’s how Gai came into the picture. They were just trying to find an “Adam” for Mana, their “Eve”. I just don’t see the point though. Why initiate another “Lost Christmas” attack on a worldwide-scale? Absolutely no good can come of it.

It’s all up to Shu now. He has the ability to keep everyone’s Void with him, no matter where he goes. However, if he were to die than so will they. It’s a double edged sword, but their options have pretty much run out by now. I’m not going to root for him though. I did that last time, after which he turned into a monster, just like Gai. No more rooting from me, buddy.

We’ll see what happens. Shu has a few more days until the apocalypse. He will have to save Inori from being taken over by Mana, defeat Gai and defend himself against Koudou and probably that mysterious blond kid. It’s not going to be easy for him. He’s just going to have to pull through this with whatever support he can get. Can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m actually looking forward to next week’s episode!
