    Default Code Geass R2

    So its back.

    Found the 1st episode a bit so-so as they had to spend most of the episode getting reacquainted with Area 11 and deja vu happening again with the c.c scene. Was a bit mortified by the genocide scene. Though I say this the last few minutes made my day as Lelouch got his Geass back and the arrogant facial expressions/swagger and over the top poses and hand gestures, but when lulu got his geass back, wasn't the smell of burning flesh off-putting?

    Black King kinda sucked, but he had plot device written all over him. I wonder if after seeing Lulu disappear will that push Shota-Rollo towards being anti-terrorist espically if Lelouch doesn't reappear on purpose(fake death perhaps) and stays as Zero permantly.Karin is stacked as always and the arm of her bot was repaired but not the same one as that was destroyed in the 1st series(?)plus how do they get away with that blantant Pizza Hut advertising, is it because its anime?

    Really hope Suzaku doesn't become another dragonauts Kazuki obsessed with Zero.

    Looking good though!

    i really hope Suzaku finally dies.

    well for this episode:

    it leaves a bunch of plot holes:

    what happend to zero and suzaku in the cave? and what did V.V do?

    why did he loose his memery. And why did many others loose their memory like villetta and lelouchs classmates, but kallen didnt seem to have lost her memory?

    why did the britisch secret service observed him to get to the rebellions? or better said how did they know to observe HIM to get to the rebellions? they surely didnt know that he was zero or else he would really be dead.

    how did C.C survive?

    why is suzaku now a personall underling of the king? even tho he's just a lousy japanese? and why does he know that zero is stil lalive even tho he's officialy proclaimed dead?

    what did happen to cornelia? and his older brother with the battleship? since cornelia should remeber who he is.

    how come he has a little brother that appeared out of nowhere and where is nunally?

    and of cause: needs more pizza hut advertising^^




    the episode raised much more questions than the ending of season 1 allready had. i think its wrong to begin a season2 of an anime like code geass like nothing happend. all back to normal. even tho some of these questions might be explained it just feels too forced, since everyone acted like nothing happend.

    A plot hole isn't when a series doesn't immediately spell something out for you.

    yes but i doubt that we'll get answers to all of these questions. or at least i doubt that these answers will be convincing.

    like i said they enforced this "everything is abosolutly back to normal" beginning to much.

    of cause we'll get to know what happed in the last episode but then the new episode raised even more questions.

    i guess some of them will just stay plotholes like the fact that the rebells seem to know the excact date lelouch is going to play in the casino since kallen was there and awaited him. But how could they know? they couldnt have foreseen that he skips school at this exact date to run to the casino.

    Why not? All you have to do is watch him, maybe even follow him a few times. Normal life (as in a life not in conflict/war) is bound by routine. All you have to do is observe the routine and predict it. That's not unbelievable in any way. It's certainly not a plothole.

    And they get away with the Pizza Hut advertising because they got rights/made a deal/sponsor etc by Pizza Hut, otherwise it would be called Pizza Shack or something else retarded. Can't use the name and logo without permission, no matter what it is.

    As far as we can gather - Suzaku won the duel but didn't kill Lelouch/Zero. All other things will be revealed

    why did the britisch secret service observed him to get to the rebellions? or better said how did they know to observe HIM to get to the rebellions? they surely didnt know that he was zero or else he would really be dead.
    They said they were acting on emperor orders and we have quite a good hint that a) V.V. is with Emperor and b) He knows who is zero. Their main objective is clear : To get C.C. - it was their objective in the first season too.

    They didn't know that because that waren't supposed to know - they were only to get C.C..

    Remember, Karen knew that Lelouch=Zero, she was bound to search for him later or sooner.

    how did C.C survive?
    She is immortal, duh. She had a whole year to get back to area 11.

    why is suzaku now a personall underling of the king? even tho he's just a lousy japanese? and why does he know that zero is stil lalive even tho he's officialy proclaimed dead?
    My theory :

    Lelouch is kept alive only to get C.C.
    To keep Suzaku from spreading about Geass power (which it's almost 100% obvious Emperor has too) he needs to keep him close to him - probably he was brainwashed to. Suzaku is a strong "part" and he proved his abilities in first season as excellent pilot.

    what did happen to cornelia? and his older brother with the battleship? since cornelia should remeber who he is.
    Hopefully she is dead or that last battle was really out for nothing. Schneizel never had much business in Japan anyway, he just came to assist Cornelia, with Zero gone, he doesn't need to stay in "Area 11"

    how come he has a little brother that appeared out of nowhere and where is nunally?
    I bet the little brother is to check the tabs on him (actor, britannia spy or another guy who was brainwashed because he was troublesome). Nunally is with V.V. - that one is obvious.

    Its obvious they'll explain the gap between season 1 and 2 later on in this series, they're just pacing in out. Though the episode was ok, it was a good choice to ease the viewer back into the geass world.

    Sponsorship of the show is ok, its just that I wondered if anime is exempt from the rules as there used to be this Australian commerical warning against blatant advertising in t.v shows aired in England and as England is quite strict on this, I'm thinking it could be different in Japan.The commerical had these two guys chatting away, then one puts a coke can near the camera and goes into the background and chats away again and the can becomes the focal point. Code Geass isn't that blatant in that respect but c.c/lelouch conversations at his place in the 1st season had the pizza box shown more than enough if I remember correctly(?)

    Forgot to mention, I liked the whole scene when Lelouch shows that he is still brains over brawn when he outsmarted the p.e teacher Villeta.

    kolox theorie is indeed quite understandable and convincing. hopefully it turns out that way. C.C seems to be a great threat to the emperor and V.V. since she can give the power of geass to everyone she likes, since she's not addicted to the emperor like V.V.

    i also think the emperor has geass power given by V.V. would be a great final battle someday.

    The only acceptable final battle would be if just as Lelouch has finally rescued Nunnally, defeated The Emporer and found out the truth behind his mother's death either Mao or Orange busts through the ceiling.

    Screw you guys! Suzaku was actually kinda cool after Euphie died.

    Other notes on the first episode:
    it seems to me pretty weak that The (Goddamn) Emporer would go to all that trouble to capture CC and then not prepare them at all for the either Geass or CC's immortality. Could it be his plan to allow Lelouch to be recaptured in order to track down where the remaining Black Knights' base is as well as CC?

    ^ He can't - such things does not exist and there should be people who should not know about both Geass and Immortality - corruption is an awful variable. End even if you had planned to kill them after the accomplished the mision, you would need to take the risk they would spread the information about it to someone else.

    That's that - they were probably ordered to kill her and bring back her body or burn her body.

    Fact : Suzaku is a tool. I like characters which try their best to save people, but that..killed his own father goddamit. How can you like a guy like that ? Who screwed over his whole country and killed the guy who was his parent ?

    So to atone his sins he became a what ? Britannia Soldier ? Most likely to kill more of his own kind like when he killed his father ? One could say that maybe it's a good thing that Prime minister died, but it wouldn't be bad if he was alive - sure, there would be more casulties, but at least his name would not be of "Kururugi the traitor" and the spirit for fight would be much greater.

    Technically, I should like Suzaku as I like Emiya Shirou from FSN, who is also a little of hypocrite, but a hero at heart and takes some suicidal attempts to save people - but the difference between them is that Emiya was always freelancer and he rejected laws like "The strongest will win", so he would most likely end making his own group or acting alone ;p
