Guilty Crown – It Had Potential, But Ultimately Failed


Guilty Crown was a show that had plenty of potential, but ultimately turned out to be a terribly written show, with annoying characters, and very little clue about its direction. It started off as one of the most hyped shows for the Autumn 2011 season – there were immensely high expectations, which it ultimately succumbed to. The high expectations largely stemmed from the staff involved with this project – having the staff of Death Note and Code Geass working together sounded like a great idea, add to that character designs by Redjuice, and theme song by Supercell, and you had some form of anime dream team. The issue is, however, that such a ‘dream team’ involved on a single project never truly works, there are too many different approaches and ideas as to what direction the show should take.
