Dammit, they're showing Black Butler at the con when I have to be at work on Friday, and Kashimashi at like 3am on Saturday when I'm going to be asleep.
And Loveless at the same time as Lost Universe!
WTFFFFFF there's huge chunks where they aren't showing anything interesting, and then everything I want to see if either at the same time as other stuff or when I won't be there.
At least I Shall Never Return is showing at a decent hour. No clue if I'll like it or not, but I want to at least check it out. Hopefully it won't be like last year where we tried to watch Junjou Romantica, but the unwashed trollish fanboys were heckling the screen so we were like OMG NO and ran away.

I've said it before but Guilty Crown can completely shit itself but I'd still watch the fuck out of it for the music.
"So I'll give you everything that makes me whole... I'm yours."
Anyway, Guilty Crown 4 - Seems like the school portion may have been a red herring of sorts; not sure if we'll be returning to there all things considered. And Gai's a dick. And I'm pretty sure the childhood friend love interest is still unnamed, too. Just random moments of woe lamenting at her inability to sleep with him.
And seems that Gai forced his hand for the situation to make Shu a member of Funeral Parlor whether he wants to or not. Allows Yahiro to betray him and announces them rescuing Shu as a member of Funeral Parlor lol sorry we're here for the murderer.
Yahiro backstory I guess to make him seem like less of a twat. He's a pusher, not a user, of Norma Gene. All for the sake of his little brother (Jun) who is infected with Apocalypse (Stage 4, at that ... whatever the fuck that means. I guess Stage 5 is when Oyashiro-sama makes him go insane).
Takes 3 episodes for Inori to get this adorable over Shu. I'm fine with this.
She even breaks in BY HERSELF for rescuing Shu. Somehow. To the point of directly disobeying Gai for him. How adorable. Some ridiculous floating-ness she has, though, but I guess she's ... not entirely normally human based off how the whole Void Genome thing pans out.
Anyway, the point of the prisoning of Shu is for him to pull out the Void within the mass murderer (Kido Kenji) ... and reveals it to be some kind of gun. That manipulates gravity. That no screenshot really conveys well.
He then goes full out baller mode vs the Endlaves. Even pulls some massive anti-gravity bullshit (seriously, he disables the gravity of the entire room essentially and climbs up to Inori by jumping off floating bubbles of water) to save Inori before drawing on her power.
And then fucks up everyone. Gloriously.
Big deal of the episode that I hope gets remembered for later is the Transmitter that Shu was given. I can't imagine it becomes a forgotten plot point. I mean, the episode ENDS with him bringing it out to remind us about it and all.
I have to wonder about Haganai a bit: Yozora's reaction to people joining the club is a little off. Makes me think that the club's sole existence was meant to be for her and Kodaka. The only admission she is fine with is Yukimura and that's due to the bullying backdrop to it. Considering Yozora's relationship with Kodaka in the past is basically summed up by bullying sequences, it makes it pretty obvious that her goal is to rekindle their past and have him remember; more so than what she's stated as is but a very literal everything Yozora has done thus far is ALL for getting Kodaka to remember their past together. Which would explain the sheer idiocy surrounding the actual club membership posters and, hell, we can even possibly say the meeting in the classroom that sparked it all was part of her plan as well..
Though, again, her winning the harem, as it were, would more-or-less invalidate what seems to be her raison d'être of that guys and girls can be normal friends. Her very belief system is at odds with her role in the triangle/polygon/harem.
