Nothing in Particular…

ah, good ol’ TvTropes. About Code Geass:

“Nina Einstein from Code Geass is without a doubt the most unpopular character in the series, mainly because she was willing to set off a bomb that would kill tons of people, including her friends, just to get revenge on Zero after the events of EP 24-25. Other people think it is because… well, because she’s an ugly racist lesbian who raped a table. Really. We swear. “

I’m so looking forward to season 2 in April… Kallen in a bunny-girl outfit. Mmmmmmmm. Maybe not Mikuru-level, but nice, nonetheless.

    The return of that hotly-debated relationship, Nina x furniture, is right at the top of my list of anticipated series.

    Well, honestly, the return of Mikuru, the original, is at the top of mine. But for a grade B series, CG is definitely higher than it ought to be! How can a series so screwed up be so much fun to watch?

  3. All I had to see was the character art for CG and I knew it wasn’t for me. Thin-thin-thin stick thin bodies, pointy chins. Ick.

    Pity. It falls into the “it’s so bad it’s good!” mold. That and having a protaganist who is handed a terrible power and doesn’t go all weak-kneed with “should I use this evil power for good?” angst was all it took. Hot & jealous women, + table-raping is just icing.

    I’m waiting for Kallen to trip out, grab the nails, and do a Shion on C.C. Or Suzuku. Or hell, Lulu himself! It’s not out of the question; I swear they’re trying to work in every fetish….

    My thoughts about CG are if you make a series with a thinly disguised version of America as the villain, don’t load it up with product placement ads for an American company (Pizza Hut).

    That is a bit ironic, isn’t it? However, America isn’t a monarchy, even if we keep electing the same families to office. In the Brittanian history, Nelson lost Trafalgar, leading to the conquest of Britian. The nobility fled to the U.S./colonies (possibly not independant in this history) overwhelmed the political system here and kickstarted the industrial revolution in the new world. Eventually they returned and reconquered the U.K. and Europe.

    It is a disguise, but it’s not that thin. I think of it as “what would happen if 19th century theories of Social Darwinism got applied to an alternate version of the British crown?” The real irony (within the story, that is, aside from any Pizza Hut silliness) is that Lelouche is now playing the game, exactly as a son of the Empire should.
