I bet that Mana was never Gai's girl. He prob can't get over being turned down for Shu. I think that he was prob also a failed experiment and that's why he knows so much about void users.

^I thought was confirmed that Mana had chosen Shu at that time .between what Gai said in episode 10 and the flashback. but whatever we probaly have the confirmation in the next episode if all goes well. I don't know how right you are...but I think you 're on something there.
Look at this pic
Spoiler for image:

It's hard to see but in the center seems to be a girl (or something similar) in the fetal position. And with long hair ,even though I still think that there are two sides of Mana one the good inside Inori and bad / evil side inside the original body of Mana.And I really beginning to wonder (like you)if the void genome that shu own now it not been born by Mana or Mana was the original owner of that power.

That's why my position is: I wouldn't mind if Shu was a little more heroic at times... but considering the proposal of the show, I wouldn't call him pathetic.

Well... Kira, at least, has the excuse of being in the Gundam franchise. They have a tradition of "teenage boy stumbling upon a weapon of mass destruction and turning into the most capable pilot ever" that dates all the way to the first "Mobile Suit Gundam" back in 1979. It's like a tradition in the series... much like the "crazy blonde guy in a mask" and every series fielding at least one ace pilot that uses a red mobile suit.

I'm a Gundam fan... so my opinion is biased, but from all the series I've seen, SEED is the one with the most annoying characters. It's a not a bad show, and I enjoyed watching it, but when you compare it with the other series (especially the ones in the original "UC universe", or with more recent Gundam Wing or Gundam 00)... it leaves much to be desired.

Anyway... coming back to Guilty Crown. Let's all pray that Inori doesn't start singing "Fields of Hope" in the middle of the battle . Seriously, if Shu ends up like Kira and Inori like Lacus... the series will loose much of it's original intent. It's too late to make these drastic changes in the characters personalities. It's like my fried says: "If it's too late to fix the mistake... then at least make sure you go all the way to the end with it." (it sounds better in portuguese... but the general sense is the same).

the only thing I hate from this episode is Shu... he's so immature.... lol
at least, he can show some cool solo action here to pay his mistake

anyway, I can't differ between Mana and Inori... what did she mean by saying "She will come"

well, in my HONEST opinion, compared to WING and 00, Seed is a step higher in terms of characters and plot. although Seed had a few references to older series, it still held its ground and became an original. let's just pretend DESTINY didn't happen

Inori already started singing in the middle of the battle but only with a different song.. and I'm pretty sure Shu won't end up like Kira..

Anyways, a bit off topic, I guess I have a thing for pink hair singer girls. And I love Fields of Hope as anata ni okuru ai no uta, musically speaking only Sheryl disappointed me a bit.

That's why my opinion is biased . Gundam Wing was the first gundam series I watched, that was back in 95~96 when it aired in Cartoon Network (*sigh*... those were great times). It may not be the best series in the franchise, but certainly holds a special place for me. As for the second part... agreed; GSD never happened, it was just a collective hallucination.

Speaking of which, the actress/singer who does the singing for Inori has an amazing voice. I really enjoyed the insert song during episode 11. Somehow, it felt different from the version in the ending... it sounded much better.

lol... that's a great comparison....
now you guys reminded me a lot of Gundam SEED.... (time to rewatch? lol)

nope, they're different.... at least Shu is more coward and get in more comfortable position while Inori is completely innocent

well, my friend said that this series is more similar with Evangelion

Me too, I really like when a song is distorted coming back on the rails to give emphasis to the peak moment.
Spoiler for just in case:
But I'd like to have heard a new ED, even if it could be difficult to surpass this one.
Oh, and I like the OP quite a bit, too.

Seems like we get tiny glimpses of spoilerish material. A void that looks like a weapon. Most other voids aren't shaped like weapons but can be used as weapons. This "void" seems to be shaped like a weapon... hmmmm...


Spoiler for THE WEAPON!:



Who is that old guy with the moustache?

Spoiler for THE WEAPON!:
It would be nice to see another weapon... the only actual "void weapon" we saw was Inori's sword, which is capable of unleashing hell against it's enemies... a "gun-void" would be something really destructive, probably capable of firing massive beam-like shots that annihilates everything in it's path (which is a commom cliche in animes... also known as the famous "BFG")

Spoiler for Old Guy:
I think that the guy is Arisa's grandfather (the head of the Kuhouin group). I can be wrong, but it looks like him.

Actually there is no new footage in that preview, its a collage of scenes from episodes 1-11 with the normal episode 12 preview mixed. What is spoilerish is the dialogue, especially the last one which confirms

I guess that depends on which side of the International Date Line you are
(or maybe it's days 13 and 14... I always confuse the standard for the IDT)

Anyway... on wikipedia (english version) it says that it will air on the 13

If you look carefully at the end of this preview,you notice that the date is 1/12
But probaly Xeones it's right and depends on which side of the International Date Line you are.
