Finger-operated machine guns are awesome.

Cornelia dies. After getting shot by a machine gun activated with a snap of Schneizel’s fingers. Terribly ignoble death for her I say. Terribly ignoble. I hope someone fulfills miasma’s request so I can use it for the lulz too.

Otherwise, Geass R2 23 was actually way better than I thought. I was expecting tons of emo-drama, but that didn’t happen. Instead, they’re seriously trying to give the show a sense of closure already, very noticeable at the first half of the episode after Lelouch cuts off Nunnally. That C.C. x Lelouch scene was pretty touching ;.;

Second half has EPIC KNIGHTMARE AERIAL BATTLES. Exploding volcanoes thrown in for good measure as well. Honestly though, while the maneuvering shit was kinda lame at the start (blame LoGH), at least we didn’t get spammed with alternating footage of Guren/Lancelot pwning tons of the cannon fodder guys.

    Considering there was barely a drop of blood (in comparison to Marianne’s ‘death’ scene), it didn’t really seem to me that Cornelia is out of the picture -_-” The exploding volcano was a classic touch – a perfect tie in to what I always considered to be unfound fears of Mt Fuji ever erupting again XD

    well, i hope that they tie up well with the geass stuff and all

    this episode was ok but i kinda miss the ‘oh, he geassed someone again and things are changing LOL’

    it was just random bombing around =_=

    “yeah, we start with missiles, then we go with some powerful battleship cannon blast and end up with some big nuke”

    oh well, its sunrise. should`ve seen that coming =/

    ah wait, damocles is rising up… so we might get some space knightmare battle too? -_-U

    My biggest regret was that Ougi didn’t get offed.

    My hatred for Tamaki goes up yet again. Saving Ougi’s life? WHAT THE FUCK, BITCH? HAVEN’T YOU DONE ENOUGH STUPID SHIT IN THE SERIES? OH, YOU DON’T KNOW WHEN ZERO IS BEING ATTACKED BY MORDRED, BUT YOU MANAGED TO FUCKING SAVE OUGI’S LIFE?

    On side note, is that the first true Ougi face contortion that I spy?

    You´d think that they would realize that Schneichel is up to something when he´s giving out all info.

    Espacially since he´s Lelouch´s brother, but once again with simple words they are left to be paws and nothing more than paws.

    Wonder what´ll happen in the next episode. And with Fleia fired Xin Ke should be quite mad… but oh well.
