Yeah, yeah, let’s get this slice-of-life stuff out of the way already
I was kind of dreading an Ashford episode so deep into the season, but they gave us enough regular story parts to make it somewhat acceptable to do that. The hijinks were generally amusing and we got some serious “oh shit” moments in there, especially at the end. It’s been a couple of episodes since we’ve had a nasty cliffhanger.
Sayoko may be an “SP” (by the way, what the hell does that mean? I see she’s some sort of supermaid ninja woman but I’m not sure what that stands for) but she’s hardly intelligent when it comes to impersonation of someone’s personality. Poor Lelouch and his dates with 108 Stars of Destiny…er girls at Ashford.
HELLO random fanservice shower shot.
Mmmmm Anya’s no idiot, but it’s hard to tell what she’s thinking because of her lack of visible emotions. You also have to consider the fact that at the end of the episode she spots both of the Lelouch’s. So how about it guys, shall we start a countdown of episodes until she joins the Black Knights? There are plenty of theories out there, from crazy to sane- she was originally intended to be his Knight/fiancée before he got thrown out, her family got killed along with Marianne, she’s Marianne/Nunally’s clone, Lelouch’s long lost sister, etc. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark…
I could make a lot of yaoi jokes right here but I won’t. I could also say a pouting Rolo looks kind of moe, but I wo…shit. Next, please.
As we figured in the preview from last week, another one of Millay’s silly games had to come into play. And as usual she had to get Lelouch involved extra, which I found kind of amusing but at the same time wishing we could have some real plot here. There’s too much I want to know about more than Millay being sad at having to leave Ashford.
Royal introductions around. And right up front we have the one-eyed monster Bismarck, the Knight of One! (hidden geass or bad haircut incident, you decide!) Next we have Guinevere, one of the older princesses who is a nasty bitch just like her little sister Carine who apparently hates Nunally. How it’s possible to hate a blind and crippled girl who just wants to help everyone is beyond me.
And the man’s man shows up once again, trying to fuck with everyone. Perhaps he’s just messing with his kids telling them to destroy China to see how they react. He seems to be testing his son Schniezel and competing with him, and loving every minute of it. After all he believes in survival of the fittest through such competition.
Also shown in last week’s episode was a blurb of Cornelia v2.0 with her new look, which looks much better than last season’s. She figures to be pretty central to the plot considering what she learns of later, that whatever the Emperor is doing is going to destroy the world according to Bartley, the fat guy. Whether she will stick to her original plan (whatever that involves) or fight against her father remains to be seen as well.
Twitch, snarl, Lloyd wants to violate the Gurren. Looks like Rakshata is going to have to come up with some entirely new stuff if Lloyd is about to jack all of her secrets. Somewhat surprising was Nunally going to visit Kallen, but we aren’t told exactly what they talked about. Probably wants to talk about her onii-sama.
Uh, ok. Totally not gay really, just “in the closet.” I loved how right after some random NPC faceplanted into the locker. Millay and her silly games once again.
I had some Gates flashbacks there, but apparently Miya is important enough to have her own page on the official site. I cringe at introducing random Ashford girls this late in the game, so I really wish they would avoid doing that. Semi-new royalty or Knights of Rounds we already figured existed are one thing, but this is something else.
Faaaaaabulous once again. Ninja Sayoko making everyone go “wtf?” One of the many problems Lelouch has at the moment, she’s now going to have to start doing his PE classes, lol =/
He’s a man, sort of. And wow, new girl is certainly hot looking in that. Something must be in the water at Ashford looking at her rack and the rest of the main Ashford girls. But outside of his sister I’m sorry but Lelocuh wouldn’t have been distracted even if it was the real Lelouch. To the real Lelouch “a woman’s body is pointless” holds true because he is surrounded by specimens such as C.C. and Kallen with curves in all the right places and either boobs or ass, and yet he does nothing with it. Oh the humanity.
No Anya, you can’t, even if you sound cute like that.
This episode was bound to be Shirley heavy, and we got a bit of development on that end, as at this point I really can’t say whether or not she’s going to be important in the overall scheme of things. The end of this episode kind of leads one to believe that she has some part to play, but perhaps it’s like last season with Mao and just kind of on the side.
The Millay sideplot seems to be wrapped up this episode (can we consider this the first real subplot that has been tied up in this show this season?) with sad goodbyes from everyone. Thankfully this means this is really the last of the silly Ashford episodes because the ringleader is gone. Lloyd’s reaction to her ditching their engagement was pretty hilarious, as he seemed to be happy about the whole thing. Cecile had a funny look on her face though…
Here we go again with the SPs, so you guys are free to help me out again. Is he talking about the various agents Brittania has scattered around that may be potentially under Lelouch’s control or something? I suppose if one wanted to infiltrate the Academy he might have to disable any protections Lelouch put up through his geass (which he probably has done without us being shown).
Yandere shot! Watch out for box cutters! Lelouch’s house is about to come tumbling the fuck down if Orange-kun comes in there and breaks all of the geasses out there (maybe even Suzaku’s plot-relevant one?). For one that means everyone’s memories will return and who knows what kind of hell that’s going to cause. My question is, if this is a “Geass Canceller,” does that mean Lelouch can re-apply his geass to those individuals? Opens up some interesting possibilities for what’s coming up, that’s for sure.
A small amount of combat involving Xing Ke and Toudou, perhaps fighting off Schniezel’s moves against China. Back in Japan Lelouch has to deal with a date with Shirley and Suzaku wearing his really lameass-looking sunglasses. And the big deal is a Lelouch vs. Orange-kun duel!
Crusader’s Angry Drunken Rant
Aww you’re breaking my heart…
No yuri rape…
Yes, My Lord!
Well if nothing else the whole episode confirmed that Lulu le Douche is incredibly keen on some Rollo locker action than getting with any hawt nubile girl at Ashford, so wrapped up was le Douche that he completely forgot about Kallen as did number one Kallen fan Calawain. His Kira Kira Kallen membership is here by revoked and he has been sent in as Ri Ri Rollo’s president for life grats comrade…
The Waifu is not amused.
If the first thing you notice are the hats I got news for you…
Sweet now every Lulu-fag in the world can shop their face in…
So it seems that Millay is Lulu le Douche’s greatest rival and Shirley sticks it to both Kallen and C.C. that by presidential decree Lulu is her property. Congratulations Shirley you have given Kaguya a kick in the teeth for failing to Chikane Tianzi. Quite why Lulu needs to work out trade agreements when he has no state is beyond me but okay sure whatever. Shirley is going to cut off le Douche’s tiny member on their honey moon. So Cornelia came back, thus the Sunrise team can rape a dakimakura of C2 for all I care right now. So on to what really matters…
Look there she goes that lady is strange, no question
Angry and vengeful, can’t you tell?
Never part of any crowd
‘Cause her head’s up on some yuri cloud
No denying she’s a funny girl that Cornelia
Look there she goes that girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she’s feeling well
With a dreamy far-off look
And her hand stuck on her sword
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Cornelia
Now it’s no wonder that her name means “beauty”
Her looks have got no parallel
But behind that fair facade
I’m glad she’s rather odd
Very diff’rent from the rest of them
She’s nothing like the rest of them
Yes, diff’rent from the rest of them is Cornelia
Mein Kommandant ist back and she looks more lovelier than ever before. Unlike her douche bag siblings Cornelia-hime is out to avenge her beloved imouto in a fit of righteous yuri rage. Unlike le Douche and LOL-Li, Cornelia-hime is going to be the savior of the world instead of rebel fag as she will be the one to prevent the destruction of the world while those two maggots go off with little boys into love lockers. Suffice to say I hope mein Kommandant will run her sword through le Douche’s eye and decapitates C2 so Kallen can shit down the green haired witch’s neck and skull fuck her for letting her rot in jail. Cornelia was and still is awesome. If you don’t like her I suggest you cut off your balls right now and offer them to le Douche and Rollo to realize your aspirations of man hood. They will both fail. We all know that Guilford was so thoroughly domesticated that he’s actually being nice to people. All in all MOAR Cornelia-hime!
Right from the moment when I met her, saw her
I said she’s gorgeous and I fell
Here in Code Geass there’s only she
Who is more militant than me
So I’m making plans to promote and fanboy Cornelia
Look there she goes
Isn’t she dreamy?
Oh she’s so cute
Be still my heart
I’m hardly breathing
She’s such a petite, smart, strong and lovely lass
Look there she goes a girl who’s strange but special
A most peculiar mad’moiselle
It’s a pity and a sin
She doesn’t quite fit in
‘Cause she really is a funny girl
A beauty but a funny girl
She really is a funny girl
