Code Geass R2

Postby outlawed » Sun Apr 13, 2008 9:09 am

This thread is for discussion of Code Geass R2. I think it will be valuable to have a separate thread so people can still safely discuss the original (especially since its USA broadcast will begin soon).

Season 1 thread is here:
http://www.animemusicvideos.org/phpBB/v ... hp?t=68346

NOTE: Most folks are probably going to be pretty good about labeling major spoilers but its pretty dumb to try and have a discussion about a show when 95% of the posts are nothing but spoiler tags. For that reason keep in mind you may learn things you don't want to know if you are not current with the series broadcast.

Code Geass airs weekly on Sunday at 17:00 on MBS/TBS in Japan.

Good call on making a thread about season 2. And I think it's safe to say that 99% of the time we talk about an anime in the series section, it's some sort of a spoiler so I think it's kind of pointless to use the spoiler tag. People who don't want to be spoiled shouldn't be in this section in the first place.

Awww, and I thought we can make the Code Geass thread into a gigantic thread of awesomeness like the Haruhi Suzumiya thread.

I wonder if there's going to be yet another 'witch' called R2 or R.R.

My thoughts of Episode 1 can be found here!

Now for episode 2......bwahahaha!!!! OH FU** YES!!!

[spoiler]So THAT'S what happened after Episode 25 of Season 1! Both gunshots were fired, but Suzaku was able to knock Zero's gun out of range and was able to get rid of the bomb he was carrying. He then captured Lelouch and brought him to the Emperor. With this action, Suzaku was appointed to be one of the Knights of the Round Table.

And the Emperor has Geass as well which explains Lelouch's "odd" behavior last episode! This might explain a lot of the other events that are lingering.[/spoiler]

Back in the present, interestingly enough, this episode played out in a similar matter like Episode 2 last season. [spoiler]With Lelouch's Geass back, he at his usual tactical command post directing the Order of the Black Knights to take out some of the Brittanian soldiers and then placed bombs at the foundation of the tower. And just like last season, a mysterious Knightmare (who's abilities are on par with Suzaku's Lancelot) appeared which nearly ruined Lelouch's plan. Luckily Lelouch was able to set off the bombs which destroyed the tower (which allowed them to escape) and the falling debris crushed the governor-general.

And then Zero makes an official announcement across the airwaves that HE'S BACK!!! :twisted:[/spoiler]

Now as for the revelations that'll lead to more future speculations.... [spoiler]- The Emperor showed Suzaku the floating shrine which is a weapon to "destroy" God known as the Sword of Akasha.

- Rollo is the one piloting that Knightmare, and he has Geass as well! :o [/spoiler]

And now I wait for another week! :cry:

finally! some resolution to last season's happenings
and ya, the new op is starting to grow on me too...still think they should've commissioned Flame-X to make the op though.

[spoiler]What kinda makes me wonder is how Suzaku could do that to Lulu. Sure he must've felt pretty bad after finding that out, but isn't what Suzaku is doing now really similar to the methods that Lulu used? (ya know, those methods that he despises)[/spoiler]

[spoiler]Now I understand how Suzaku got to where he is. Nothing says strength like turning your best friend in I guess. That does raise the question of who gave geass to who. Perhaps v.v. is Charles's witch?[/spoiler]

[spoiler]Kinda hoping that the story will break from repeating the premise of the corresponding episode in S1 now.[/spoiler]

All in favor of making Pas's custom title to say "tool" say AYE

He's a massive hypocrite, but also probably my favourite character. Euphie's death probably really fucked him up.

Ya, it was interesting and even a little unique doing that with the first episode of season 2, but I really hope they don't continue this style each episode. Perhaps they're just doing this for the first few.
