The trend has shifted for the past few years, with very few recent series that reflect the initial goal of it (AnoHana and Musukou), hence the reaction for having a series like GC in this block.

The reason I liked noitaminA was due to the fact that they did 'B' when every other producers did 'A'. That's exact reason why I like Shaft too. noitaminA block didn't really care for trends, but they always adapted hidden gems that always seemed to be unique. UnGo + Guilty Crown is a combination that doesn't really fit with series that noitaminA focused on. Maybe because they are original anime adaptations. I don't know.

Anyway, I'm in between extremes of hate and like for this series currently. If director don't go overboard with the setting. It would be juuuuuuuust fine.
If anyone attacks Shaft
I will be there to defend it to death.
