[Ended] Guilty Crown: Pretty and Full of Holes

If you draw an analogy between animes and Hollywood movies, Guilty Crown is more or less equivalent to big Michael Bay style action movies: it got all the right actions and explosions to make it a very exciting to watch; at the same time, leaving plot holes everywhere that are large enough to drive two 18-wheelers through side by side.

Don't get me wrong, I liked this series, it's just every once a while, decisions a character made, an action a character took just makes me hang my head side and think "seriously? you could have just solved the problem right there and right then, why you have to go take the long way?!"

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 81 (Good, but a little excessive)
Comedy: 80 (Little, and not that great)
Action: 90 (Everywhere)
Art/Animation: 91 (Very pretty artwork)
Sound/Music: 92 (Very good)
Character: 81 (Somewhat flawed)
Plot: 68 (Holes, giant holes)
Ending: 87 (Ok)

Re-watch value: 30 (Once is more than enough)

Overall: 83 - Pretty, with bad plots 

Recommendation: This is one of those series that I'm on the fence about. It's a decent enough series I think it's worth watching, yet there are so many huge plot holes that I don't really want to recommend it to anybody.
