One for the road Charlie, we loved you.
Wow, now I’ve seen some really great trolls on 4chan and the like but I’m not sure anyone has trolled me as much as Sunrise just did. This is seriously epic-level trolling of everyone who watches this show. That being said this episode had so much awesomeness and hilarity to it that I’m going to have to try really hard to seriously discuss the srs business parts of the show.
She was going to draw on his face, I think that pretty much explains a lot about Marianne’s personality when you consider what’s going on around everyone.
Kallen! I’m really not too sure what’s going to happen with her, she’s been relegated to a middling side character for most of this season. After she was captured in episode 10 she rarely appeared, and when she did it had little impact on the plot. This is kind of one of the problems of R2, important characters from season 1 seem much less important. At least she shows up hanging out with Lelouch in the preview for the next episode.
I take the Fifth
Hi mom! Been awhile!
Ahaha, as a man I love this quote, no matter how batty V.V. is. And as a student of history this has been true quite a few number of times. So the truth finally comes out, that V.V. got jealous of Marianne taking his little brother away so he brought out a machine gun and pumped her full of lead.
Poor Anya had nothing to do with any of this and was just unlucky to be in that spot. So Marianne decides to use her first victim to accomplish her goals with Charles. I suppose that means that from this point on Charles was hiding things from his brother, living constantly in lies of his own to get to the end. By the way, the explanation for her ability to talk with C.C. was a bit on the side of bullshit. Letting her consciousness surface? The hell does that have to do with her transferring your soul geass?
Well, they certainly aren’t going to win any “Parent of the Year” awards that’s for sure. In order to accomplish their goals they forcefully blinded Nunally and sent them both off to some other country as political hostages. I guess in their mind the anguish and hell their two children had to go through wasn’t sufficiently important to force them to accomplish their goals in some other way.
The most fucked up part here is that she was working with Charles all along, but unfortunately their plan was borked because they needed C.C.’s code. At this point it’s a bit hard to tell what’s going on with C.C., she seems to be in considerable torment with multiple forces and emotions pulling on her despite the fact that she claims to have thrown away her humanity.
Mmmmm, too easy.
It’s getting a little Eva in here folks, and I’m not really liking it. To be honest the competing philosophies here were both pretty much horseshit. I don’t watch this show for philosophy because frankly, the writers can’t deliver. So I generally laughed at what they were trying to say and came away with the fact that Charles and Marianne want the world of
LCL Ragnarok goop where everyone is united together. On the other side Lelouch wants people to live like they are now, but a world based on equality of treatment rather than equality of minds…I think. So Shinji Lelouch rejects Instrumentality the Ragnarok Connection and says “hey, I think some patricide is in order.”
If there’s one gaping hole in their parenting skill argument it’s that. If they really wanted to protect their children, why did they send them off to a country they were about to invade? Don’t you think there’s a good chance they would die as a result of the invasion they already knew they had to do? I understand why Lelouch would be pissed at his parent’s reasoning, because he Nunally got royally fucked (pun intended).
So…he gets a super geass and uses it on all of mankind? Or Juptiter? I really don’t know what the hell is going on but it’s freaking awesome. This was the beginning of where I started laughing uncontrollably at the super levels of AWESOME and it didn’t stop until the episode was long over.
I love emo facial distortions of surprise.
Even C.C. rejected their plan, and sided with Lelouch. That also let her not disappear into nothingness, but she has always wanted to die so I don’t think it’s planned like that. She’s definitely a lot more meek now, even after getting her memories back, losing a lot of the flare and force of will that she had before. But it’s to be expected considering that she had just seen the folly of the goals she had worked for so long to achieve and abandoned them, along with an easy way to die.
He still clings desperately to Nunally as a basis for what he’s doing even as he is about to kill off his parents. Whether you buy that as an explanation or not, he’s clearly distraught over the crap they put him through as well as believing that the world they want is wrong.
Wow, way too awesome to handle, Charles is Superman.
Peace out mom and dad, have fun in hell
This episode has broken the record for emo facial distortions of surprise.
What is with the shit-eating grin? And Knight of Zero? Oh lordy at this point I nearly fell out of my freaking chair, no joke. And yeah, incoming OVER 9000 yaoi doujins of makeup mansechs. Suzaku and Lelouch were supposed to be enemies until the end, so while it was awesomely hilarious, it was ludicrous from a story standpoint.
Since these ladies have been judged to die, it made this scene all the more awesome. Basically with one geass Lelouch has just taken over Brittania by forcing all the royalty and nobles except for Schniezel and Cornelia to acknowledge him as emperor.
Which shit-eating grin will be victorious in the end? I can hazard a guess that it will be Lelouch, but we’ve got three more episodes to find out. Upcoming episode titles include “Schniezel’s Mask,” “Sky of Damocles,” and “Re:.” If you will remember, Damocles was referenced in episode 15 so it’s some sort of plan/weapon/supernatural business Schniezel has planned one would assume.
Despite how hilarious and AWESOME this episode was, I’m really kind of disappointed in the turn the series took. The entire buildup so far was for a final confrontation of Lelouch vs. Charles, and Schniezel was just an obstacle in their way or a possible spoiler. Now, the final boss is Schniezel and I’m just not digging it, it messes with the story continuity. Add that to the fact that Suzaku is now on Lelouch’s side and I’m just kind of meh about it. However, the episode from start to finish was supremely entertaining, whether that be in a bad sense or a good sense, it was entertaining.
Low quality extended preview of episode 22.
I’m going to start with those uniforms, what the hell is that crap, white versions of the geass cult stuff? Lelouch’s emperor getup is retarded looking as well, what the hell is up with this show’s obsession with retarded hats. Remember the asshats of episode 12? Kallen finally gets to meet with Lelouch again, that should be good. Looks like we will get some fighting though, perhaps Suzaku vs. Bismark.
Crusader’s Angry Drunken Rant
So they did see Goatse…(LinkNSFW and not safe for sanity, all ye who click abandon hope)
Wow that was an epic hit. Carriaging under the influence is dangerous…
Wow we made it to pedo heaven, but where’s Rolo?
Well there was a lot of talking this time about some sort of philosophical bull shit, can’t say I care much for it, since my God is better than theirs and can beat up their God which is a collection of puny emo humans. Well it turns out that Marianne and Charles did sort of care for their kids but Lulu being the weeaboo that he is rejected them and killed them in a fit of rage to steal the throne, for Nunnally of course. Well for all the bullshit that was used to build up Lulu’s bawwwwing over Suzaku’s betrayal, they are not only friends, but lovers too. I guess the first pairing was just too strong so the yaoi clique was able to get their fanfics into canon, given how Sunrise is made of cowards I can see why they caved into to make LuluxSuzaku more viable once more. All hail Britannia…?
I see who was the the Euphinator’s teacher…
What is this guro?
What, no teabag?
So the only thing that was of concern to me was that my hime, Cornelia-sama now has a functional left arm. I hope she uses it to grab Villetta’s hawt ass and carry Villetta to her chambers for some much needed yuri lurvin. I expect Kaguya to rage once she realizes that Zero dumped her for Suzaku. I thnkk Kaguya deserves it for still not having loli-raped Tian-zi.
Obligatory cry some more shot…
Damn it Lulu why are these two bitches still alive?
All Hail the Empress Lulu, he is indeed fabulous. And lo his lover Suzaku whose spin-fu can break steel!
Indeed amount of LuluxSuzaku disturbs me…
I am the waifu!
Oh Joy! Cornelia-sama has use of her left hand again…time to massage both of Villetta’s melonpan to use a Claymore…
