Another PV has been released of the upcoming, far more promising, visual novel variant of a dreadful anime series, Guilty Crown – giving highlight to a theme to be included in a short OVA alongside the game.
Watching this PV, it’s not a surprise to see it immediately surpass the anime in superiority through any and all means imaginable – the visuals are generally far more reputable, and aside from being exquisite on a standard scale, they’re also more representative and fitting of a sci-fi atmosphere. The abstract patterns and designs, impossible to miss whilst watching the clip, contribute heavily to the futuristic feel – as well as the overall ambiance of the series.
The sight of the heroine, seen early in the video, speaks for itself – and thus, skipping to the portrait of the male protagonist around 42 seconds within the video, it’s truly a marvelous sight in that the expression is embedded deep with emotion. Sentiments of longing escape the visage of the protagonist – with the eyes in particular being a trait of which one should take notice.
Further, one should recognize that the angling of his appearance, the manner in which it looks that he’s turning back to catch the sight of something he desires, gives the impression that even with his dedicate chase after it, that which he seeks still remains a distance unreachable.
On a partially amusing note, the video follows the aforementioned with some heartwarming moe moments – going through quite a few of those before turning to clips of actual animation, showing the intimacy present between hero and heroine whilst concurrently making a flashy display of the power present within our protagonist. For the closing scene, we’re again shown the leading male and female beside one another – and essentially, the close relationship is established in a rather gentle manner.
Not to be overlooked, one should also merely be aware, if nothing else, that the soft colors seen within the video are a significant facet in the development of the mood within this clip.
Little difficulty is required to make something more impressive than Guilty Crown’s TV series – although this visual novel is definitely deserving of being recognized on a separate note from that horrid tragedy of a creative work, or so does it seem. Hopefully, “Lost X-mas” doesn’t follow the same route as its TV counterpart and shatter pathetically as it progresses – ideally, it’ll be what the anime should have been.
