As expected some of the truth of geass is revealed, although to a lot of us it’s probably not that much of a surprise what C.C.’s wish was. Other than that we got to see Drugzaku struggling with himself, Nunally asserting her authority, and a literal “cliffhanger.” Oh, and a naked C.C. and a loli C.C., I almost didn’t survive that.
This scene made me giggle, because it made geass look like some sort of laser beam when it’s actually invisible. I guess it’s just a way for them to allow the viewer to understand what’s going on, despite it not really being visible. Well Lelouch, it was a good plan to think up, even though we know it really wasn’t going to work.
That’s goddamn right Kallen! Slap Drugzaku silly!
It would seem Suzaku is still struggling with his morality, it is not so easily cast aside as he tried to do last episode. This episode showed both Lelouch and Suzaku in a much brighter light than last episode, and they both showed empathy and resolve here in contrast to the dark nature of their actions in episode 14.
By now we’ve seen multiple stages of Charles’ life: from shouta, to young man, to old man in a wig. V.V. looks just as shouta now as he did back then, except without the ridiculously long hair. And they made a promise to one another not to lie when they made their contract, which gives reason to some of the things Charles said last week.
Surprise! The show can’t end at episode 15 so of course he’s not dead! No, instead he has taken V.V.’s immortality in exchange for the loss of his own geass. Kind of silly that they call that taking their “code,” but made up uses of English words in this show shouldn’t be too surprising.
Oh god, not these two. Out of all of the storylines in Geass I find this one to be one of the stupidest and most uninteresting. Two generally incompetent, dull, and boring characters who are easily manipulated by Lelouch falling in love. It’s like a really bad Romeo and Juliet with the Brittanian woman and the Japanese guy. Gag me with a spoon. Thankfully supameido Sayoko is there to bring the pain.
I didn’t really understand what this “you are me, I am you” and “one person” metaphor stuff is about. I guess they couldn’t just tell us everything in one episode, and had to leave some of the mysteries up in the air.
Most people saw this one coming. From the very beginning, when I knew she was immortal, the first wish I thought she could have would be to die. It kind of flows naturally from being immortal and alone most of the time, and watching people you’ve grown close to die of old age or the frailties of human life. What I didn’t predict was that the underlying truth of geass user and geass giver was for the user to become powerful enough to kill the giver and take their place in immortality. I just thought it was unique to C.C.’s contract, because V.V. said their contract was to slay the gods.
Lelouch really stood his ideological ground here, refusing to give into C.C.’s self-pity and depreciation of life. His entire purpose in gaining the power of geass was to continue living and create a world in which Nunally could live in happiness. To him, there is meaning in just existing and driving toward your goals. In the end, he isn’t willing to kill C.C. in order to gain power equal to Charles. He isn’t the cold-blooded pragmatist that Charles is, who is willing to do anything to secure what he wants.
Respect mai authoritai! She’s much cuter than Cartman, but damn she showed some spine here. I thought we had seen the last of that Ms. Rohmeier hag, but Nunally uses her hand polygraph test to figuratively smack her up. You go girl~!
Oh man the genius finally figures it out after 15 episodes! Man, what a freaking moron this fellow is. And then he gets owned by a blind and crippled girl, who can tell he was lying without even using her hand polygraph. Just by listening to him speak. That’s two lolis that have owned Suzaku.
Itty bitty C.C.!
Sayonara! Too bad I don’t think they’ll really die =/
Again, jwq3lk4jwklfsjflksd. Ahem.
What is love? Baby don’t hurt me.
She just wanted to be loved by someooooooooooooone.
After much nosebleeds and singing of cheesy songs, I return to notice that Yukana (C.C.’s seiyuu) is using her Tessa voice, which adds even more moe to this whole scene.
That is one crazy ass nun for sure. It is interesting to note how the geass affected C.C., changing her from a desperate slave to a spoiled girl who is showered with attention. If you compare Lelouch to that, he has not had such a significant change in his personality. He has the same goals he always had even before the geass, and his attitude about them hasn’t changed. He might have gained some confidence, but that’s about it.
And her prince comes to rescue her, I half expected for him to confess to her, but I liked this way better. It is interesting to note that he asks her why he didn’t force the immortality on him, as we’ve seen her become closer and closer to him as the series went on. To her, he has become more than just an accomplice, but someone who truly thanked her and appreciated what she had given him. For the second time this episode Lelouch stands his ground and refuses to give up, telling her once again that he will stay with her and asserting that he won’t let anything else be taken away from him
God I love this guy’s facial expressions and booming exclamations. Emperor Wakamoto, you are one awesome villain, one of the best in recent memory. A truly crazy ass mofo. Not exactly as planned for him though, as he doesn’t get to take C.C.’s immortality and his place gets all blown up.
Personally, I think something bad is going to come as a result of Nina inventing what is probably the Geass universe’s version of a nuke and giving it to Schniezel. He dropped the name of Damocles, although whether that’s the name of a delivery system, KFM, ship, or what remains unseen. Feel free to read the original ancient Greek anecdote it’s from, which is a pretty amusing one.
So moe I died! In actuality this is pretty messed up, as she has apparently lost all her memories from when she got geass onward. This is potentially devastating for Lelouch, who with that has lost the one person closest to him who knows everything and whom he can confide in him. What this means is that Kallen needs to come back ASAP to comfort him ^_^. In the end though, this is perhaps a way to let C.C. live at the end of the series, because if she has really lost her powers (forehead thingy wasn’t showing?) she could live a normal life with Lelouch. Although it would be nice if he could at least restore her memories before this is over.
I’m glad we finally got to the point where we found out about C.C.’s past and the nature of geass. Although it wasn’t the whole truth, I’m glad we know what we know now. Still unresolved remains the questions about C.C. and Marianne’s relationship, how Marianne relates back to V.V. and Charles in terms of geass, how they can talk to dead people, etc. It’s going to be weird having a master-slave relationship between Lelouch and C.C. for the time being, considering the previous relationship of devious accomplises.
Couldn’t find an extended preview this time, if I find one I’ll add it later.
Shazam, episode 16 extended preview! Although it doesn’t show much extra, a bit of extra Cornelia maybe
Lelouch and Orange speaking with a captured Cornelia, Lelouch holding a conference with Xing Ke, Tianzi, and Kaguya, a plan to rescue Nunally, and the orange haired Rounds looking in on Kallen. Oh, and C.C. stripping, can’t forget that ^_^
