● Introduction

The year is 2029. Japan fell into chaos as a mysterious plague known as the "Apocalypse Virus" have spread all over the nation. An international organization known as the "GHQ" intervenes to restore order to Japan in exchange for its independence. The incident was later referred to as "Lost Christmas".

10 years have passed and the year is now 2039. Shu Ouma, a 17-year old young man, lives his peaceful life aimlessly by simply going to school.

That peace was then shattered when he accidentally meets a girl by the name of Inori Yuzuriha, a famous singer and a member of the resistance group named "Undertaker" whose main objective is to liberate Japan from GHQ. There he meets Gai Tsutsugami, the 17-year old leader of the group.

He became involved with the resistance and due to an accident, received the "Guilty Crown" on his right arm. This power allows him to draw a substance known as the "Void" by extracting it from another person and wield it as a weapon. This marks the beginning of his story and the sinful crown he shall adorn...

● Final Words



I can't believe it took me 2 days to write this post. Collecting images and information was easy because the official website got them all but finding the trailer with decent resolution, uploading it to YouTube and subbing it took more time than I anticipated. Also, the trailer have some parts that I didn't quite understand so don't consider it as 100% accurate.

Wow, 2 days for a single post is a lot of time. You sure put some effort here.
Also i wouldn't mind owning a Fyu-Neru. Looks like a robotic bug, which is pretty cool in my book.

@Hasidic Plumber & Fang

There are a lot of cute girls in the show and the robot insect got your attention? What is this, I don't even...

This looks quite good, in my eyes, I like action, I just hope this one is not 'sissy action', but I don't have high hopes for this being proper action with atleast some degree of gore, you never know though..

Crisalys said...

Oh dat artwork!
Also, I like Ryo, so that's a bonus point.

Shaw said...

Looks like something up my alley, but I like to marathon through my anime, so I'll wait for it to finish.
