Guilty Crown was one of the most entertaining anime of the year despite the repeated blasphemes against its good name by our hallowed leader, Scamp. There was not a single week it didn’t deliver the goods; writing about it was one of the best episodic blogging experiences I’ve had in my dopey career. Choosing just one moment to represent the whole of Guilty Crown seems like a fool’s errand; and, frankly, it is. So I’m not going to do that!
Instead, I am taking the opportunity to celebrate blind American patriotism on this Irish anime blog. If you watched Guilty Crown, you know the man staring you in the eye, pointing two thumbs to his chest and shouting, “AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!” Mr. Dan Eagleman is clearly the most important American of 2012 by virtue of being the most important American to appear in the most important anime of 2012, Guilty Crown. Mr. Dan Eagleman stole the hearts of all Americans immediately with his bold speeches, brash swagger and general outlandishness. He is everything Americans aspire to be in Japanese animation. Look at those medals! Look at how SHINY they are! Now there is a true American Hero.
If you hate Mr. Dan Eagleman, then, clearly, you hate everything that is good and righteous in the world.
