Yeah, this episode deserves a proper post.
First off, I really have to congratulate Tamaki for being such a reliable comedy relief character. Seriously. It’s good to see Sunrise hasn’t left out some good running jokes even as crazy as the plot is now. In fact, Tamaki’s almost a symbol of coherency in the whole story right now.
Nina’s back to mooching at her scorned friend, Milly’s place. “I’d never thought I get targetted for making FLEIJA.”… NO SHIT, SHERLOCK. It’s amazing how one can be so smart yet so dumb at the same time. *shakes head*
Also, random Pizza Hut moment. Come to think of it, it’s been really a long time since we saw any pizza in the show. I started thinking Pizza Hut wasn’t sponsoring them anymore.
The real final boss? Arthur makes an appearance in a long while. Looks like he’s taking it cool for now. Must’ve probably finished up all his plans.
Oh yeah, poor Knight of Rounds. They got decimated by Killzaku in not even 5 minutes.
I mean, Dorothea ONLY just appeared and died within 5 seconds. Man, she was as useless as they got.
It’s so sad that even Monica had to die too. And she was actually pretty cute ;A;.God damn you Suzaku!
Bismarck’s Geass is stolen from Nunally’s! And all the while we were wondering what kind of Geass it was…
Sadly, it’s apparently not even a match for Killzaku Yamato.
Sorry, couldn’t resist. I mean, the joke really made itself there.
Oh Tamaki…. you….
YES! WE ALL LOVE DEMOCRAZY!
ALL HAIL DEMOCRAZY!
ALL HAIL DEMOCRAZY!
Again, Tamaki… you….
Ah, the pivotal moment of the episode, the Kallen x Lelouch kiss that everyone who’s a Kallen shipper has been waiting for eagerly since they cockteased us near the beginning of the season.
Personally though, I’m reading this kiss as both of them finally cutting their ties, and in Kallen’s case, a closure to the puppy love crush she’s had to Zero/Lelouch.
In a BLINDING moment of enlightment, Kaguya discovers the biggest weakness of the UFN’s representative democrazy system, i.e. who owns the most people wins. And in this case, it’s Brittania/Lelouch. Democrazy is truly the best and worst form of government.
No shit, Sherlock!
Oh yes. It’s play time.
Poor Kaguya ;A;. Seeing her getting so bullied by Ledouche almost broke my heart. I so wanted to slap Ledouche in the face for doing that to her. All she wanted was to become his wife ;A;.
But uh-oh, play time got interrupted by the TOTAL DISAPPEARANCE of the Brittanian capital of Pendragon.
With no thanks to
And we come to the most awesome part of the episode, Nunnally’s miraculous reappearance!
Everyone else, is, of course, shell-shocked and rendered speechless. Man, no matter how many times I rewatch this scene, the reactions never get old. And poor Suzaku thought he’d finally lost his only competition for Lelouch’s heart, body and soul.
And of course, probably the most damaging line in the show as of yet….
Must be a real bullet through Lelouch’s fragile loli-siscon heart there.
Finally, I must add, all those weaklings who keep proselytizing about how alcohol goes best with Code Geass R2 obviously are the same people who thought it’d be the Best Show Ever™ and can’t accept now that they’re being trolled so boldly and so openly by Sunrise. These people obviously never lived through the pain that was Gundam SEED Destiny. At least R2 has 100% lesser Stock Exploding Zaku Footage™, Emo Screams™ and Totally Pointless Plot™.
