Code Geass R2 episodes 21-25 – But what about the cart driver?

Finally, I can use this picture and have it be relevant. This blog has existed for just over 5 and a half years now. I myself have been blogging for over 7 years, having started on an older team site before jumping ship. I named this blog after this specific scene. Yet I’ve never actually […]

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. One who when you shoot him in the chest, he just stands there and laughs at you. There’s that brilliant moment where Zero stands with […]

Code Geass R2 episodes 9-12 – Evil bollocks-less Chinese

I need this shot framed. Boy this current anime season completely kicked my arse. I fell behind in pretty much everything that’s not Blood Blockade and zoned out of anime altogether. Then I remembered the perfect remedy. I was supposed to be rewatching Code Geass! All right it may be the slightly weaker R2 but […]

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. There was a particular episode of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex where we see an internet chatroom (a futuristic internet chatroom where people go into this cool conference hall and have intelligent conversation rather than repeat […]

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 […]

Code Geass episodes 21-25 – I could tell you to kill the Japanese

Before we even begin on Bloodstained Euphie, let’s talk about episode 21 and anime’s tendency to air the goofiest episodes right before the most insane dark episodes. Or alternatively right after. You know that if you have an episode in which the most memorable moment is when a giant robot making the world’s biggest pizza […]

Code Geass episodes 17-20 – I will now proceed to pleasure myself with this fish

You’ve seen this screengrab before haven’t you, except with some choice subtitles under it. In the scene in question, Suzaku doesn’t even say anything. He has just jumped up from the water after having caught a fish. At most he breaths a little heavily and looks around wondering if he’s dropped his nipples in the […]
