Oh God yes. The philosphical babble they added to this was dire. The four city elders literally didn't go a single sentance without RAISON D'ĘTRE spam. The show went to shit a little before halfway anyway so I dropped it.Originally Posted by Memphisto
Especially since quite a lot of people found the story and characters interesting and deep... hell, even Naruto is more interesting and deep :P
I have got to watch ergo proxy someday, it didn't seem to be that bad^^
Are you saying you couldn't even enjoy it as cheap, fun entertainment just because a lot of the fan base saw it as more than that?
I'm guessing One Piece is still one of your favourite series? Surely you don't consider it's hyperactive, unintelligible, 12-year-old fanbase to be much of a factor in your own personal enjoyment of that?
Regardless, I have to say, seeing characters which greatly annoy you go through all kinds of hardships and emotional trauma is VERY interesting; at times it was nothing short of hilarious. Hands-down more interesting than post-timeskip Naruto has been.
Oh yeah, give Ergo Proxy a try. The first 10 episodes or so are actually good. The first 3 episodes have about a quarter of the whole show's animation budget anyway.
the problem is it isn't good as a cheap, fun entertainment ! For this I am currently watching sayonara zetsubo sensei and history's strongest disciple Kenichi.
Regardless of the fan base, Code geass tries to look profound and sensible while it's boring and shallow, and so is pretentious. Also, I don't particularly like watching things which annoy me (I couldn't care less about the traumas they endured :P)
Btw, I hate the art too ^^ Q-tip people suck (though I love One Piece's)
PS : you know what happens when a movie (and this is the case here) tries to look more important than it is ? Something like that : http://www.nanarland.com/play_video.php?vid=86
This explanation made my day. And that is why I do not like Code Geass.Shautieh! I'm surprised at you! Can't you enjoy a silly, over-the-top, politically themed soap-opera with rollerskating mecha and a hilariously unmasculine cast of characters for what it is?
