Finally, after almost a year of waiting, Geass R2 starts.
- It’s also a year later in the series and somehow Lulu has lost all his memories of being Zero, and now reverts back to his state in Geass S1 before he got his powers. In retrospect, they restarted the series almost in a mirror image of what happens in the first season.
- I lol’ed when they started the episode with Viletta chasing Lulu all round the school to catch him for his P.E. classes. That switch with Rivalz was really over-the-top. It’s good to see the rest of the Student Council members back.
- It also wonderfully explains the existence of Rollo, Lulu’s supposed kid brother. As for who implanted the fake memories, Lulu was being used as bait to lure out C.C., so I presume he was caught at the end of Geass S1 and reused after being implanted with fake memories. I’m pretty suspicious of Rollo’s true identity as well.
- Lelouch was way awesome after he got back his memories when C.C. unlocks it with a kiss. He looks positively cool and evil, especially at that angle showing his Geass eye prominently.
- Kallen is awesome as usual, with her acting skills, and she does really make for an awesome covert operative, heh heh. Bunny girl Kallen rocks.
- C.C. has been sorely missed as well, and it’s good to see her back, wearing the awesome custom pilot uniform too.
There’s something in your boobs there, Kallen!
OP: 02～オー･ツー～, Ō Tsū by Orange Range.
Not much to say about the song. It’s okay, but I still prefer the first season openers. The OP animation sequence is pretty awesome, with a ton of mecha action. I like Anya’s custom mecha a lot. Quad Hadron Cannons is pretty hax.
ED: シアワセネイロ, Shiawase Neiro by Orange Range
Again, not much to say about the song. I don’t seem to be liking both the songs for the OP and ED. On the other hand, the ED animation is made of tons of win, with CLAMP’s renditions of the main characters in the series, playing by in a slideshow manner. Lelouche looks positively…. CLAMP in it.
P.S. : Forgot to mention, but Pizza Hut still supports the rebellion! (Credits to Omni for reminding me)
