But at least it had better audio quality than the real group.
Never heard it before.
I have the JPS notification but I didn't bother to download it since it isn't freeleech.
Well..usually nothing too important going on right?
So still no word on finishing final design of IA?
what do you want to know about it?
I still have the DAC module and controller to design
PSU and amp needs a bit of work too.
and all this time I've been learning C programming for AVR µCs.
Just parts needed for it, cost, finishing time.
But i guess i'll look into other units first.

Hmmm, now I get why many people hate Guilty Crown...
I have the integrality of GC for over half a year but never bothered to watch it past episode one.
Well since I have loads of free time now, I should do a GC marathon and I've been impressed with it but also it angered and very much saddened me. Here's my review of its integral:
I should first start with it's amazing, fantastic, mind blowing soundtrack. It is so good that I wonder if the anime was made from. Regardless, the composer did an excellent job to it and Egoist's songs are wonderful. For the soundtrack alone, I give it a 10/10, heck I will give it more than a ten. As for the art, it is wonderfully animated with an amazing art direction. Maybe the best I have ever seen. It is just pretty in every way.
As for the story, that is a bit more complicated because this show has filled me with positive and negative emotions. The plot is very interesting but it suffers from quite a few things that almost break it. I should say that it is the Achilles heel of this anime depending if you can tolerate its negative points.
The story can be split into three parts. The first part (episode 1-11) is what made me excited the most, the second part (episode 12-17) made me angry about every thing and shows the core flaw of this anime and the last part (episode 18-22) made me sad than happy.

For the first part of GC, it was very good with an interesting plot that keeps on going and going with few filler episodes but it doesn't let us breathe. It's too tense sometimes and doesn't let go at all also sometimes, a bit over the top. Watching the first part was tiring enough for me. Also, one key negative point I should mention is the fairly shallow characters in this anime. I don't know if it's a bad case of voice acting but I really didn't bond with them, not even with Gai or Shu. Some funny moments to ease a bit and a lot of fan service that seems more misplaced than necessary. Damn those boob physics, they sure are working well here.
The second part of GC, wasn't as good as the first. I don't know if it was the author's intention to do it but that part was frustrating and actually made me angry. It was almost cliché in a lot of ways and with Shu's constant bad decision making, I hate him in this part. This part was a display of the problems with GC. It has a lot of stereotypical characters that made the story predictable and tiring.
For the third part, obviously Shu needs to rise again, he's the main character after all so it was natural and entirely predictable for him to be part of the conclusion which I expected to be better. I think this show has been spoiled because it didn't build enough momentum. It was too tense but also predictable over the episodes that there was actually no climax. It kind of reminds me of the Total Recall remake film. That film made the grave mistake for having too much action from beginning to end.
Still, the GC soundtrack makes up for the story,
As for the ending. One word: Disappointing. It was half-arsed. Maybe because I was spoiled by Shinsekai Yori's absolutely wonderful ending. The ending doesn't feel complete and left a bitter taste rather than sweet. It's as if they didn't have enough running time to make a proper conclusion.
Here are the scores:
So yeah, I did feel disappointed. It has excellent visual but it's almost all show and no go.
