Code Geass R2 20

Code Geass R2

Ohohoho, serious episode is serious. Also, QUALITY episode is QUALITY.

P.S. gg, nicely played. As if koda would drop Geass now that Schneizel’s finally getting some airtime. Chances of that happening is the same as me watching Junjou Romantica. And if it’s any consolation to the rest, I only download Eclipse releases. ( `ー´)

Code Geass R2

Sigh, Tablehumper. Why are you still alive? Isn’t KILLING MILLIONS OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS AND ANOTHER PRINCESS enough for you?

Code Geass R2
Oh shit! I didn’t know Anya swung that way! WHERE ARE MY DOUJINS?!!! *FAP FAP FAP*

Code Geass R2
Oh lawd. So Anya’s not Lelouch’s sister… SHE’S HIS MOTHER!!!! Damn, this was worse that I thought! Lelouch, my man, you have one fucked up family.

Code Geass R2
LOL Penguins. This was just so random.

Code Geass R2

Code Geass R2

You DO NOT want to fuck around with Cecile on the pool table. After all, she can beat your silly ass without having the cue ball hit ANYTHING at all.

Code Geass R2
Suzaku finally snaps and goes, “HEY SCHNEIZEL. I’MMA GONNA BE YOUR BITCH NOW, SO CAN I GO KILL CHARLES SO YOU CAN BE EMPEROR AND I BECOME YOUR TOP BITCH?”

Code Geass R2
Which of course gets Gino fired up… “WHAT? I’MMA CHARLES’S BITCH, YOU GAY BACKSTABBER.”

Code Geass R2
Schneizel says, “BE MAH BITCH OR DIE!” Be a man, Gino. Be a man!

Code Geass R2
Oh god, someone needs to enact a “Save the poor lolis” campaign in Geass. I sure hope they don’t kill Kaguya or I shall RAGE like the fist of a angry god.

Code Geass R2
Back to ol’ Zaku, who tries to kill ol’ Charlie, but DUN DUN DUN! Waldstein, Charlie’s biggest and baddest bitch appears.

Code Geass R2
Oh lawd, what did Mr. TV did to Mr. Normal until Mr. Normal had to go beat him up? I bet Mr. TV wanted a piece of Ms. PE Teacher’s hawt ass.

Code Geass R2
THE LULU STRIKES BACK!

“MUAHAHAHAHA, NOW I SHALL FINALLY STOP BEING STUPID ABOUT MY GEASS AND START USING IT TO HAX EVERYONE IN TO MAH BITCHES!”

Code Geass R2
“OH NOES, I R GETTING BUTTSECHZ’D!”. Poor Knight of Twelve, I actually think she’s really kinda cute. Too bad she’s only one of Charlie’s lower bitches.

Code Geass R2

<+Shance> “A Geass is like a box of chocolates: You’ll never know what you’ll get.”
<+Shance> SO RUNZAKU, RUN!

Yes. RUNZAKU! RUN!

Code Geass R2

THE RETURN OF THE LELOUCH. Cue the Imperial March please. See Lelouch, this would’ve been SO MUCH MORE easier if you did it in the first place.

Code Geass R2
I have to leave it to C.C. No matter the circumstances, she always stands calm in the face of overwhelming odds and dangers to ensure the safety of her favorite pizza plushie toy. In fact, this is rather GAR ain’t it?

Code Geass R2
Random C.C. closeup shot. I need Marianne/Anya x C.C. doujins. Seriously.

Code Geass R2
“OH HAI THAR FATHER. THANK YOU FOR BEING SUCH A DUMBASS FOR COMING IN HERE AND LETTING ME BLOW OFF THE EXIT SO WE’RE BOTH TRAPPED HERE FOREVARRRR.”

Code Geass R2
“NOW LET’S FINALLY HAVE THAT FATHER-SON BONDING I SO TOTALLY DID NOT GET AS A CHILD WHICH LEAD ME IN TO DOING ALL THIS SHIT. WE HAVE AN ETERNITY TO CATCH UP, DON’T WE.”

Mmm… evil Lelouch. Yummy.

    Hey, the QUALITY had to come at some point… now that I think about it, it took them a long while before having another QUALITY episode….

    So let me get this straight: Ceceile makes horrible bread and has extremely questionable tastes, yet she becomes so manly like with her MAD pool skillz? That’s freaking awesome!

    Aw, Sex-toko… ERR!! I mean…. Kaguya is crying. There there, it’ll be alright. Deep down you would still love Zero even if he was a prince of Britannia

    I feel this was little bit rushed. Feels like the scripters just asked some random otaku on the streets and put it on screen: Hey wouldn’t it be fun if Marianne was alive in a loli’s body? YESSSS….mind-transfer geass

    I have to think that the Anya development was originally meant to be focused around Nunnally, only to be re-planned hastily when the staff were told in introduce more mecha pilots so that they could sell more toys. Really, the complete absence of the Rounds in R1and the fact that they’ve had very little to do thus far makes me think that they’re definitely a last minute addition forced in to justify the timeslot in which the show is airing.

    Anyway, it’d make way more sense if it had actually been Nunnally – the whole blind thing to cover up her Geassed-eyes and her proximity to Marianne at Mariannes time of death and all that.

    semtex: The execution is a bit rushed, that is clear as daylight, but then again you aren’t even giving the show a chance to attempt to explain things, which should happen next episode.

    DiGiKerot: R1 was essentially about a local rebellion in Japan, and it didn’t actually become a big problem until late in that season.

    And, actually the Rounds are mentioned in the additional materials for season one, so at least it’s less “last minute” than you believe.

    Besides, did you really think the Emperor of such a large and powerful Empire wouldn’t have any direct subordinates or what?

    Maybe they would have been different without the time slot, but I don’t think they would be non-existent or that no new mechs would be introduced at all, including overpowered ones. That’s just trying to dump as much criticism on R2 as possible regardless of how much it sticks.

  10. DiGiKerot Said,

    August 25, 2008 @ 5:20 am

    Camario: I just didn’t think they’d let the Prime Minister fly around without any really significant support. The Knights mecha aren’t really that overpower compared to what Zero had been flying around in at the end of R1.

    And fair enough about the Knights – I’ve not been through all the supplementary material for R1. I don’t actually have a problem with R2 (Heck, I’m buying the Blu-rays), but I just find it really hard to believe that what we’ve seen in R2 was the original plan for the series for Nunnally or Marianne. I have no real issue with what they’ve been doing here beyond that. It’s fine, it’s unpredictable and it’s entertaining.

    Birsmark vrs Suzaku’s fight needs the “Duel of the Fates” in the background; a good example for the Star Wars legacy.

    Damn it, what will you do C.C.?

  14. semtex Said,

    August 25, 2008 @ 6:19 am

    Camario: We agree on the rushed part, of course it is for the script writers to animate what they see fit, but somehow I feel that whatever explanations they have I won’t be satisfied after throwing that totally unexpected bomb about Marianne. Then again what would Code Geass be without its trademark?

    If it were possible someday I would like to read the planned script that was scrapped.

    anya is marianne in this ep cuz if you look at her eyes its like red/geass-controled, but anya wasnt marianne in the eps b4. anya isnt marianne, she is only in this ep and prob the next few. marianne prob took over her body temp for a reason. so this means that anya and marianne are 2 dif ppl; they arent the same.

  16. Camario Said,

    August 25, 2008 @ 8:01 am

    DiGiKerot: Well, your idea about Anya’s development being planned for Nunnally sounds good (maybe even better than the actual show) on paper but, so far, there is absolutely no way to verify it.

    The only way it would be indirectly / circumstantially confirmed is if, somehow, Nunnally turns out to be a perfectly normal girl with no secrets at all.

    I can agree that the Knights of Rounds haven’t been doing much so far, or not in the best possible way at least…but other than that, I don’t object to the idea of the Rounds or their mere existence. Of course, there is a toy / merchandise selling element to all this, but that was already present in season one too.

    semtex: I’d like to read more about the original plans for R2 too. That would certainly clear up a lot.

    Ok. Seriously. Plot randomness aside — and I admit, it was difficult to follow, but not IMPOSSIBLE — I have one significant comment to make:

    DID ANYONE ELSE THINK THAT THE ANIMATION SUCKED IN THIS EPISODE?

    It seriously looks as though half the ep was done by the normal animators (the parts with the black knights and with Kaguya) while the rest of it was absolutely MAULED by some cheap Korean substitute. Honestly. C.C., Lelouch, Suzaku, Cornelia, Kaguya (when she was with Schneizel) and God knows who else were all DESTROYED, with ridiculously skinny faces and MASSIVE eyes, and just general misshapenness and disproportion all around.

    I loved the story, but half of it I could barely look at. It was just absolutely grotesque. I’m usually not picky, but there are some shows with characters that you just don’t mess with. Code Geass is one of them.

    Is it me, or Charles and Lelouch will somehow join forces….

    and if the above is true, What are the chances We can probably see Gino siding with Lelouch?

    1st of all: Marianne not anya …. its a geass that cc gave her for what it seems…

    Also, the story line its going as planned …. nunnaly couldnt be in the anya place cuz it would sound patethic, and a few eps back suzaku comments about anya memories, and when cc goes agains her knightmare she feels wierd.

    and even, for the one who want dojins… i just say, – get a life…

    and about the “ruushii” comment, i agree…… WTF, how do they dare to mess up with the quality of code geass… it was 1 of the best parts that in this ep its pretty much ruined, hope i dont have to take this shit in next ep.

    @ruushii: DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR You’d be Nunnally to not notice it. Hint: It’s a ploy to make you buy the BLUE-REI’s.

    @everyone else pointing out it’s not really Marianne but her Geass: Well, like d’OH! Still, Marianne’s one fucked-up/awesome character. She plans her own assassination, leaving her children by themselves, then takes over the body of a loli and only reappears to conduct her TOP-SEKRET plan after reviving back good ‘ol C.C.

    Camario: There is absolutely no way to verify it.

    True, there’s no way of verifying anything short of Sunrise releasing all of their materials from the show, which will never happen (though I’m sure it’d be absolutely fascinating – particularly, given what the staff have said about it, the R1 stuff prior to the shift of intended timeslot).

    But, you know, whatever. If they want to have Marianne possess the body of Anya, that’s fine. I don’t think they’ve finished with the reveals about Anya yet, either…

    So lelouch’s mother has the ultimate Geas Power : THE LOLI GEASS that allows her to transform into a loli.
    The geass is really fearsome…
    If Lelouch had received this kind of power (or the shota geass) he would have taken the world in 2 or 3 days.

    Also, the trap in the end has already been used by Gotrunks in DBZ so all Charles has to do is to scream really loudly a “Oh NOES” to open some kind of vortex to the normal world.

    PS : CC’s come back is boring… no more goshuujin-sama unfortunately ;(

    LOLOLOL…. and he has to scream cuz he wants candys and chocolates, not because he wants to broke free. xD

    But he ll not be able to do it since he needs to be pink and with a dick in his head xD

    Also about:

    “kuro you forgot to mention 2 things…

    why did lulu seal the entrance while he was INSIDE it,and…

    DESPAIR”

    Yeahhh, I think he could had blown the entry without being inside, but also he wanted to make sure that charles would be stucked, cuz if charles break free lulu can also do it, even if its like buu and gotenks xDDD.

    Yeah the episode was terrible. Why couldn’t lelouch seal him like that earlier if it was that easy? Why did he have to seal him with himself in there if he could just seal the exit from the outside? Why was the whole marianne thing so sudden and cc getting her memories back JUST LIKE THAT after they had two intense episode about her losing it. I thought suzaku was giong to go berzerk? he hardly went mental he just went into bitch mode. That laugh in the last episode was totally misleading. LASTLY WHAT WAS UP WITH THE SUDDEN COUP D’ETAT. JUST LIKE THAT. jesus christ this anime fell apart in this episode.

  34. Magnius of the Chaos Said,

    August 26, 2008 @ 3:59 am

    Lelouch never planned to just lock Charles in. As he said in the last scene of the previous episode, he planned to drag his father down to hell with him. He never intended to live through the whole thing; he wanted to go down along with dear old daddy.

    And when could have Lelouch sealed him in like that until this episode? He didn’t know about the Sword of Akasha until only a few episodes ago, and he had to make sure that Charles was actually inside.

    Laughing in an anime does not necessarily equate insanity. People laugh in anime all the time, you know? He could have been laughing at the futility of his situation, or at himself for trying to stick to ideals.

    Okay, is it just me, or does Suzaku absolutely LOVE being mind-fucked? This is sooooooo awesome! I did not see that one coming with Anya being Lelou’s mother? I think his mom’s Geass allowed her to live on in another body – it sort of makes sense. I think?

    I don’t know, I felt a bit unsatisfied by this episode, I guess cos there were no big surprises.

    Yes, I know what your thinking, Anya = Marianne, how is that not a surprise? Well the fact that it still makes no sense to me means I’m waiting for next episode with more info.

    But seriously, with all this talk of Gods, Ragnarok, New World, it really could result in any type of ending from complete annihilation to a rewind to “this all never happened” kinda ending (the only good thing of that is that characters I liked that died would return).

    Also, its seems that they might be taking the route I feared. Only a select few will ever know that Lelouch was Zero and that the masked leader will always remain a symbol with many questioning if he even existed or if he was multiple people.
