I had previously heard some negative reviews of the series so almost passed it up but in the end watched it throughout online and thought it was phenomenal. I want to know why others who may have seen it hated it.

I don't see why would people hate it. I felt it had no cliches since have seen a lot of anime and it did have an original concept. Shu saw as someone with flaws but he eventually overcame them and the ending well with the world of Guilty Crown felt it had misery because of the horrible apocalypse virus and thus even when only seeing the first half of the series (11 episodes) I just knew the ending wouldn't end in a happy ending with Shu and Inori. Now the only things felt displeased was the fate of Mana but that has to with my sympathy and like for Mana.

I felt it was rather complex which have only ever seen in Code Geass (had a sad ending too), Psycho-Pass, Corpse Princess, Un-Go, and even Attack on Titan.

I want to hear others reason why they did not like the second half of Guilty Crown exactly and also explanations on why not just it was a train wreck or disaster. Elaborations on why.

I didn't like any of Guilty Crown, personally. It just had a lot of things wrong with it, the only upside I saw it having was the top-tier animation. It also had some fanservice to help it, but I've never really cared for that.

That said, if you like it, then good. It's all personal opinion, anyway.

Hi!

What were the reasons though. I am someone that likes to hear others thoughts on why they dislike a certain anime series. I happen to blog on anime too so I also analyze anime too.

If you could humor me then I would love to hear your opinions. Feel free to air you thoughts

In all honesty, I enjoyed the second half as well ^-^
Just not as much as the first half... I thought it got a little over-the-top and somewhat predictable (or something; it's hard to explain) in the second half.

The rest will be a little spoiler-filled, so:

Other than that, the series was amazing and I don't think it deserves as much hate as it gets.

Aha, I understand. Haha, I am onto something. Okay. So over-the-top-ness. I'll add that in my review analysis. Thanks for your thoughts on this. It helps me understand why the reception for the series being divided by those who saw it.

Mainly the amount of plot holes that went along with it. It was pretty ridiculous. The one that confused me the most was why Shuu's father didn't just kill Mana?

You're not my real...daughter?

That is easy. Shu's dad like him was not a bad individual but he didn't relate well with others or more like he didn't know how. It was the main reason why he came off as distant to others like Shu.

Like Shu he had a hard time making hard decisions that would hurt others. He probably cared for Mana. He did say he was his little girl. He wouldn't have had the heart to do what was best for humanity's entire safety. Shu also struggled making decisions as seen when he had to sacrifice others when he became president of his school. He had a hart time agreeing to the genome resonance ranking system even though in a way it was the best for everyone. Although it was obviously cruel but needed.

That's a double standard.

I absolutely loved the second half of Guilty Crown. I actually enjoyed it more than the first half which was still good.

When you're a leader and faced with the two options of either:

a) run out of vaccine and have everyone die

or

b) give the vaccine to members who can help your cause the most and the most people possible will survive

Of course you would also choose option b. If you choose option a people will like you until they are about to die then they will all hate you for not choosing option b. If you choose option b people will hate you for not choosing option a when in the long run they themselves would rather have option b.

Personally... It started becoming too cliched and the problems that the characters were going to have I knew they were going to have them a number of episodes before they did... When a show gets to be like a bad novel and I know what's going to happen before it happens... it is time to stop...

Kobayashi-maru....

I don't like the 2nd half because it felt EXTREMELY rushed. We still dont really know wtf is Inori. It never explain why she had those power and how she was able to transform into monster. Then there was also that other character that also possess the power of the king, I think his name was Yuu, who didnt get any screen time at all. We still dont really know who he is or why he also has the power of the king. For a character that has the same power as Shu, there should of been more explanation to why he even fighting them. Then when he finally fought Shu, he was defeated in just a few sec. His relevance to the story was barely there when the character seems like he should be an important antagonist. For me, it felt like the anime completely went 180 after Gai was revived. I think Hare death had a bigger impact imo than Inori.

Not sure why if I should add spoiler since this thread is discussing the end of Guilty Crown so people who click this thread should probably of seen it.
