Code Geass R2 04

Code Geass R2

Rollo gets mindfucked.


Oh god, Lulu, or should I say the Sunrise scriptwriters, are masters at such plot twistings. Hell, I felt a bit of pity for poor Rollo myself.

So basically, Lulu manages to talk his way out of Rollo by promising to bring him C.C. Then he hatches a plan to try to both save his subordinates and get rid of Rollo, and finally finds some “interesting” material, regarding Rollo’s past and his ideals.

Setting up an elaborate scheme, he proceeds to head for the Chinese Embassy, alone, with Rollo’s knowledge, and manages to concoct up a nice little show, forcing Rollo to actually save his ass in the fighting that ensues. With Rollo thinking that’ll be the end of him, Lelouch covers his actions up from Viletta, convincing him that he still thinks of him as his younger brother, so now Rollo’s gotten converted to his side. Oh wow, that was a fucking awesome mindfuck there, Lelouch.

That was so totally and masterfully executed, that while one part of me is logically declaring the sheer convolutedness of it, the other parts are saying, “HOLY SHIT THAT WAS SUM FUCKING AWESOME MINDFUCK.” I guess it’s moments like this that will probably define the second season of Code Geass, if they continue onwards like this.

Code Geass R2

Gotta admit, EVIL Lulu is awesome.

Other interesting things to note in the episode:

  • Viletta-sensei looks like she still has some feelings for Ohgi. Truly, she was really moe when she was Chigusa, and then the end of Code Geass totally ruined it all, but I’m happy to see that she hasn’t fully forgotten Ohgi’s kindness and her feelings for him. Found it rather cute of her when she was relieved to see Ohgi getting saved, despite being the enemy herself.
  • Aww~~ C.C. can’t assemble handguns. Awww~~~
  • Code Geass R2

    “Oops, I did it again.”
  • Kaguya… is still loli-licious as usual.

Next episode, Suzaku returns to Ashford Academy. The school festival, or another one of Millay’s parties, is ongoing. Anya and pretty boy Zino is seen enjoying the festivities as well. This looks like it’s gonna be another awesome ride through. Wonder how long will Lelouch manage to keep his current facade up.


IcyStorm: why are all of Lelouch’s memories of Rolo and him together so…
kur0gan3: oh-so-gay
IcyStorm: yeah…
kur0gan3: seriously
bj0rN: Rolo might have used his ability to molest Lelouch from time to time

Damn right, it’s damn gay.

    Now that Lulu has a Lancelot Knightmare and a geass pilot on his side, things are gonna get tougher for Suzaku’s Lancelot.

    I wonder what the other students think of Suzaku having been away for so long, if they don’t know he’s a Knight of the Round? Also… this episode truly marks the return of Lulu – the scheming in episode 2 was good… but this beat it easily.

    I just hope that this mindfcuk doesn’t turn into a ‘LULU YOU TRICKED ME 20 EPISODES AGO NOW I’M BACK TO COMPLETELY RUIN YOU’ type thing later. =x

    I suspect that that is exactly what will happen.

    The problem with Evil Lulu is that he’s extremely good at making plans under pressure, but doesn’t think about things coming back to bite him in the ass.

    “Oh, I got a bunch of cops to shoot Mao, he’ll leave me alone.”
    “As usual, I, C.C. have to clean up your fucking messes, Lulu.”
    “Whatever. I have a sister complex.”

    @Magnius of the Chaos: Oh god, I LULZ’ed. In real life.

    And seriously, that is sooooo viable to happen, unless Lulu finally gets it right and disposes of Rollo as soon as he gets back Nunally.

    Or, we could see a nice sibling rivalry with Rollo “Oh, I’m so gay for onii-san” and Nunally “Oh, onii-san’s so in rabu-rabu with me” ?

    I’m glad I made you laugh. XD

    I was worried that I might have been filling this blog up with meaningless and asinine posts. XP

    I ‘hope’ Lulu actually does manage to gain some compassion for Rollo or something, but then again, he has a sister complex, not a brother complex. Plus, he’s probably not too happy with someone who tried to take Nunally’s place.

    Ooh, Rollo of the Mind Fuck / Time Stop against Nunally of the Wheel Chair / Future Sight (then again, that’s only for the manga version… but whatever).

    really nice ep :D Lulu is awsome as always… even tho i hated the fact how he sees Rollo as a disposable pawn :/ personally i really like Rollo’ character even tho… his a emotionless killer.. and i think it’ normal for him who has not experianced any love to fall so easy to Lulu’s “sweet talks” x.x hope Lulu will start to care for his “little brother” later in the series x.x

    Apart from the mind fuck part – which was awesome and should a reminder never to trust Lelouch again, I am no longer gonna take this show seriously as I did in the previous episodes…

    – A commemorative Cornelia hime same plate in Guilford’s place
    – that wild incest yaoi shot of Lulu and Rollo with the pink sheets
    – the weird way that Knightmares activated their guns when they were given orders to execute the Black Knights…

    I can’t.. Seriously… Although, the part with Viletta was sweet, but I kinda expected it when I saw the OP.

    Magnius, in Lulu’s defense I found it reasonable to expect Mao would be dead after getting gunned down by the police. If Code Geass took place in NY he certainly would have died.

    Psh. That’s what they said about 50 Cent. XD

    Really, though, Lulu should have made sure that Mao was dead. He also should have allowed Kallen to kill Suzaku if he was really serious about his goal for destroying Britannia and his father and whatnot. If Suzaku were dead, than none of that mindwipe shit would have ever happened.

    Lulu just doesn’t know how to finish stuff. I mean, even after outwitting Mao for the second time, does he whip out a gun, scream “FOR 50 CENT, BITCH!” and shoot him? No, he stands there wondering what the hell is wrong with his friend/enemy and lets C.C. do everything for him. Bleh.

    I wouldn’t blame lulu for any mistakes, because everyone, even a genius, can make them. I wouldn’t cheer for him if he would be flawless, and the plot would be, well, utterly boring and pointless.
