Because that cake at the end should have been Daryl’s. p.s. appultea made this.

ARISA DIDN`T DIE BUT KENJI DID!!! WHAT THE /$%&!!!
She is such a pointless and irritating character towards the end of the series!
Don`t get me wrong, I love Guilty Crown since episode 1 but there are some things that I don`t like about the ending.
- Inori died. I prefer if Shu and Inori both die for saving the world instead of leaving one person behind. At least they die together happily, now Shu doesn`t have a wifey. Gai died while holding Mana in his arms so what about Inori and Shu *sniff*
- Kenji Kido died but not Arisa. WHAT? I think Arisa is a pointless character and isn`t she got shot after her void disappeared? Argh!
- After the time skip we saw Ayase, Tsugumi, Yahiro, Souta, Kanon, and Funell with his wifey and kids. Okay I`m happy they are all alive and well but WHERE IS MY BABY DARYL!!! *turns the table* Did he survive the collapsing building? Isn`t Daryl is one of the supporting characters and he got a pretty decent amount of screentime so WHERE IS HE?!!!!
- I`m pretty sure the creators hinted a Daryl x Tsugumi canon and there was a few episode proof for that. I`m glad Daryl recognized Tsugumi`s voice during the fight at GHQ but after the time skip what just happened? No Daryl? No Daryl x Tsugumi moment? They didn`t even get a chance to meet again?
Argh!!! Production people are trolling
Lastly, I`ve heard a speculation that there is going to be a second season for Guilty Crown. The question is, how are they going to continue the story since all the voids are gone? Are they suddenly going to bring Inori back to life or another Gai coming back from the dead?
Well if this 2nd season speculation is true and whatever the story is going to be, at least please make the story more logical and show more screen time for Daryl and Tsugumi (the other hinted canon), at least a proof that he is alive and well! And if they bring back Inori, please make a happy ending for her and Shu (the main canon couple)!
Enough with my rants even though my feelings for this ending is mixed with different emotions. *starts to cry again*
Reaction/thoughts towards episode 22. SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
Eeek Mana is back and she does ballerina this time to end the world…WAIT! WHAT?! If you ask me that is a really lame way to start the Fourth Apocalypse…a ballerina seriously? I mean she does it gracefully *applause for that* but doesn’t suit the “end of the world” category.
Maybe Mana prefers to dance because she can’t sing better than Inori.I actually love it when Shu shoved off Mana, pretty EPIC *thumbs up for Shu* so happy he defended Inori.
The fight between Funeral Parlor and GHQ Enclave was pretty intense. The scenes are pretty satisfactory and not to forget the screen time of our crazy but adorable Daryl OMG he once again recognized Tsugumi’s voice and I think I heard Tsugumi called Daryl “Moyashi” which means bean sprout. Now she has a name for Daryl while he still calls her “runt”. Its so cute they have names for each other!
Then we get to the short fight between Gai and Shu, I was a bit disappointed not because of the animation but due to being short. Maybe Gai doesn’t want to hurt Shu even more that’s why he accepted defeat. If that maybe the case then Gai is still a nice person after all. Also, that scene where Shu is gently holding a dying Gai is so touching,
I bet yaoi fangirls went crazy.
After Gai dies we go back to GHQ scene where Shu is standing and looking at the approaching blind Inori. What I don’t get is how Inori went blind. When did it happen? The creators could have been a bit specific on that part.
The next scene is when Shu absorbed all the voids. Just when you thought him and Inori are going to sacrifice themselves to save the world that’s when the story made a twist! Inori decides to sacrifice herself and let Shu live. OMG Inori why did you have to die! *bangs the table* I don’t like it! Her sacrifice is so heartbreaking. Now Shu doesn’t have a wifey *sobs*
As the building collapse we get a glimpse of Daryl again….YAY! BABY DARYL! *fangirl squee* Thanks to Rowan for aiding Daryl but why is it that nice guys like Rowan have to die at the end. Not to forget another kind person, Hare.
OMG Daryl’s face! Look at it! *stares* SOU KAWAII!!! He is so Moe here *fangirl squeek*
Then after the GHQ building completely collapsed we get a time skip. A few years later, we see Shu attend Hare’s birthday party and we see him blind. So Shu took Inori’s eye injury? First he lost his arm, then he lost Inori, and now he lost his eyesight. Oh! Baby Shu
At the end of the episode we see Shu listening to Inori’s song while sitting on a bench and we get a glimpse of Inori in his dream (I think he is dreaming).
The ending is so heartbreaking and really sad! Totally bawled over it.
Daryl in the elevator scene during the destruction of GHQ building. Look at that face….SO CUTE *fangirl squeee*
At the end, what happened to Daryl? Did he survived? I hope he did, I mean he survived after all this past episodes and killing him off by not surviving in that collapsing building just seems weird and lame to me.
We should at least get a glimpse of him in the time skip. Also, what happened to Daryl x Tsugumi ? what a troll!!!! they didn’t even get the chance to meet…argh! way to go to keep our hopes down.
Production people are so cruel, we want to see our baby Daryl!
