Code Geass R2 episodes 17-20 – Neo Tokyo is about to E.X.P.L.O.D.E

Notto dis shittu agen. My vague memory of Code Geass R2 is that the show mostly stayed on course until around about episode 18 and a certain thing with Rolo happened and then the whole show went off the rails. Not that Rolo was the glue holding the thing together. I don’t think I’ve written […]

Code Geass R2 episodes 13-16 – Come at me bro

After faffing about with those bollocks-less Chinese last arc, it’s great to see the return of a genuinely great villain again. One who when you threaten him calls you out.

Code Geass R2 episodes 5-8 – That camera angle

It’s like in between seasons the Code Geass animators suddenly discovered the wonders of alternative camera angles.

Fantasy Anime League 8 weeks in – Four fifths of a good team

Fantasy Anime League continues to rumble on with over 400 people taking part each season. As we pass the halfway mark it’s time to take a look at how we’ve done so far. Or more likely, sit and despair at how there’s nothing you can do to change your inevitable failure as everything had been […]

Code Geass R2 episodes 1-4 – Singing off the same sheet

Code Geass is still about terrorism. Really gay terrorism. The year is 2008. Sunrise had allowed a talented director, previously responsible for Infinite Ryvius and Planetes, to direct a two cours mecha series helped by some pre-season hype thanks to the popular female manga authors Clamp doing the character designs. While there were some excited […]
