November 30. The insert song from the beginning of episode one, which is also sung by chelly, is on the CD with it.

chelly is supercell's new 17-year-old singer. The OP is sung by its new 15-year-old singer, Koeda. Both were chosen at auditions last May-July.

I think they are both excellent singers, but I admit that my first reaction was to think of them both as obnoxiously perfect, as opposed to the lovely rough edges of supercell's former (?) singer, nagi. I think I prefer chelly to Koeda, so far, anyway.

EDIT: @kk2extreme -- I like the insert song best, too.

Kind of like the episode, until the end, that school scene was just arrr. If this is turns into a school comedy, sci-fi, fan service thing, then good bye.
I am actually surprise that Gai let that boy go, I would have though he would just killed him, but having that singer girl tagging him...

He can't just kill Shuu. It's a wasted void genome if he just kill him. He will just ensnare him with Inori. Plus it will be also good story to see and I don't hate a slice of life, school comedy added to the initial setting of sci-fi rebels.

Well like tsunade666 says it would be a waste of a void genome.. and considering what just happened I'm sure security would be heightened on any remaining ones... Gai is also probably going to use Inori to ensnare him slowly instead of trying to force him to fight.. but for the moment they announced themselves to the world and won a battle.

Also I'm pretty sure Gai and Shu have history together.... if the images you see before Shu accepts his kings power are any indication.. also is there any reason for Gai to know Shu's full name prior to when he saved him?

As much as I like the OP I can't help but think how much better it would've been with Nagi....

Are you saying that maybe the other pink(?) haired girl in the flashback is somehow related to Gai and Shu past?

For anyone who (like me) didn't know this, nagi sings on her own as gazelle がぜる, and as Yanagi Nagi やなぎなぎ. Lots of stuff on YouTube. She was (is?) also part of the group binaria.

I really agree with this. Currently the anime treats her like some cheap stripper and it's hard to take her character seriously or grow attached to one like that. I mean it's almost as bad as Season 1 Motoko's. But at least Motoko was badass... :S Basically you can have fanservice without being insulting.

3. Really beginning to dislike the music - it's just not working for me. The ED theme is okay but I really don't like the OP theme and Inori's singing isn't doing it for me either. The visuals seemed a bit messy this episode - already wondering whether they spent too much budget on making Episode 1 look good.
The OP is definitely ass. However, I noticed no notable shortcoming in the visuals...
Quote:
4. The world setting/plot progression was next to none in Episode 2. Most other shows I continued with really set things straight in their second episodes - their intentions, settings and motivations became clear. Guilty Crown is already wasting time this early...I am not impressed with this.
I agree that the setting up with the plot and antagonists was poor. But I think it's a bit too early to assume it won't come to fruition. I mean, being a 2 cour anime means that it needs to entertain the crowd while eventually shoehorning in the plot. If it starts progressing at episode 3, that'd be most regretful. Of course, that's just me.

Much like you, there's many animes to check out this season, and I have no time for mediocrity. However, I doubt this anime will be mediocre.

Sure this show has a lot of generic anime tropes, but I think I can live with it. The clearly astronomical budget forces me to watch this show.

totally uncalled for? yes, but still very much welcomed.
I think, it all depends on how much you're into fanservice to begin with, and how much of it you can digest without getting a stomach-ache.

well, it's more a matter of taste than anything else. Frankly, I have not so much of a problem with how she's been portrayed up until now.
Sure, most of the times it feels forced, uncalled for and overly exaggerated, but that's GC for you... and, as we've seen, it's not something to take too seriously.

To be fair, since almost every anime OP is about that length, a number of songs will be interchangeable.

It's not a bad fit, though the original is just far better.

I thought it fit surprisingly well.

Anyways, here's another Inori pic:

It's rather funny that rather Shu would join the Funeral Parlor in the 2nd episode or not, it'll still be claimed generic

Well, the character is so generic that whether he joins or not doesn't make much difference IMO.
