Shinnen:New Year is a Guilty Crown Mega Crossover co-author fanfic by Ford1114 and Kanius of their personal take being set years after the anime. This special ‘23rd episode’ is about the canon versions of Shu, Ayase, and Tsugumi meeting new people such as their Guilty Crown: The Lost Kingdoms counterparts and the Magical Girls, while there are many subplots to celebrate New Years Eve in Manhattan. However, when Da’ath makes their return with their own Legion of Doom, it’s up to the heroes and villains teaming up to stop then, while the canon!Shu confronts his past for his salvation.

This is also taking place in Kanius Production Abridged as the fourth story, where these corners have parodied what its like for the crossover characters to have parties. The main fanfics that are use in this shared universe are YuYuGiDigiMoon, Digimon Fusion Kai, and Digimon Accel Stream. However, Shinnen:New Year stands out as a sophisticated special with grimmer situations, despite retaining the same tropes. It is also served as the series finale to that fanfic franchise.


This fanfic provide examples of:

  • The Abridged Series: By the time this story is release, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series and the Abridged series in general celebrate their 10th anniversary in 2016.
  • Actionized Sequel: To Guilty Crown and Kanius Production Abridged's House of Madoka. This has a lot more intensive fights and deaths.
  • Adaptational Badass: There are characters that obviously have one:
    • Canon!Shu himself. Upon getting his powers back in Chapter 12, his skills in using the Void Genome improves and has a headstrong attitude in stopping GHQ/Da'ath.
    • Canon!Ayase plays a major role in receiving a new Endlave that's much stronger than her previous ones.
    • Many of the Sword Art Online characters receive this treatment due to their abilities carried over to the real world that allows them to fight on par with meta-humans and other strong beings.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Between the final episode and the epilogue, this is a more expanded take of what happens when Canon!Shu Ouma and his friends have a new adventure.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Of course this is expected for the series finale, and though Canon!Shu eventually finds the respect he deserves, he returns back to his normal blind self in the epilogue.
  • Book Ends: Chapter 1 has Madoka and her family picking up Canon!Shu's group at the station. The final chapter has Madoka's family going on a picnic while letting Canon!Shu at peace.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: This is one of the main themes, though its downplayed this time.
  • Call-Back: There are references from Guilty Crown alongside other things use for this story:
    • The first episode of the anime has Canon!Shu destroying Endlaves when using the Void Genome the first time. In Chapter 12 after regaining his powers, the first enemies he slays are Endlaves.
    • The anime had Canon!Ayase's breasts jiggle when her Endlave is damage, Chapter 14 does it again when under attack by a Stegoceratops.
    • In Ch. 1, Jessica said "Ford! Is that you?". In Ch. 26, Ford then said "Jess-? Is that you?" after being brought back to life by the Valkyrie and her Erinye clone's threeway kiss.
  • Cerebus Rollercoaster: Course there are moments of seriousness in this crossover.
  • Continuity Nod: Despite being a stand-alone mega crossover, this references past Abridged corners/stories alongside Guilty Crown itself.
    • House of Madoka, the fancy party club that the magical girls owned for the characters is mentioned many times as a past experience of a fun celebration.
  • Then Zeed X alongside Canon!Mana Ouma shows up in the endgame in making things much dire.
  • Legion of Doom: Da'ath makes its return with antagonists from various works to join their side.
  • Mons: Digimon and Duel Monsters. Two Charizards are seen as Kirito and Asuna's partners.
  • Mythology: First appear in Chapter 6 that many deities and visitors have their divine celebrations. Prominent examples are Classical Mythology and Norse Mythology. Not only that, but religion obviously exist in this shared universe.
  • La Résistance: The Lost Kingdoms versions of Funeral Parlor takes over the original's positions.
  • Revisiting the Roots: While the author did an AU take of Guilty Crown, this shows the focus of the canon aspects being brought to play, especially Shu.
  • Rule of Three: The main characters that are involved are the canon versions of Shu, Ayase, and Tsugumi.
  • Serial Escalation: This crossover is jam-packed with action and plot twists in a greater scale.
  • Take That!:
    • In Chapter 2, the LK!Guilty Crown characters talk about how the actual anime have mix receptions with the audience and the YYGDM characters shunned Canon!Shu. This shows some payback at the inconsistent writing Guilty Crown has, though it still saddens for our main character (which takes it much further at the end of Chapter 19).
    • Chapter 9 has Linkin Park songs heard during the Dragonball and Naruto scenes, indicating how the music band is so overused back in the early days of anime fandom and AMVs. Minako's rant on Sasuke and the Naruto franchise in general connects the authors' interest on Naruto fades since their mindsets have change, it's also to remind how the fanbase is so flawed.
    • Chapter 31. They have Superman from DEATH BATTLE! killed by Inkarnierte Mana as making fun of its fanboys. And also, Sasuke killed gives the middle finger to Naruto flashbacks.
  • Valkyries: They are involved in the conflict by helping the united forces.
  • Where It All Began: As a fan of the anime, Ford1114 culminates his contributions going from his AU retelling to his focus on the canon continuity.
