I get the impression Code Geass is liked because people saw it when they were 15.

I watched it for the first time recently and was entertained by how bad it was. It's a good watch for the wrong reasons.
>>
>>133637700
Did you watch a version where only scenes with Orange were shown?
>>
>>133637860
That's exactly why it's so well-liked. It's like an icon of the trainwrecha genre.
>>
>>133637922

That makes sense.
You can tell they tried to make Lelouch out to be some sort of genius like Light Yagami but failed in the execution.
Every victory in series one, which is supposed to show Lelouch's unparalleled military strategy, just comes across as being the product of sheer luck or coincidence.

At least he was more believable than that guy from No Game No Life.

>>133637860
The first season was very exciting if you overlook the Mao subplot and the terrible drama whore that is Shirley. The second was for the most part a complete mess who seemed to only be concerned about introducing new characters no one cared about and turning the whole things into meme time.
>>
>How did they do this?
They didn't. The bar has just been lowered in the past seven years to such an extent that Code Geass has retroactively become a masterpiece.

I posted that some consider it to have one of the best endings in anime and people called me a newfag.

No, is just if you have been here long, you are just tired of people saying what is obvious. "HEEEY GUYS SHAMURAI CHAMPLOO WAS AWESOME", we all know it, and this is the millionth time anyone said it.

>>
>>133638270

I like Mushishi and Cowboy Bebop. Wasn't aware that hating them was some sort of meme. Not sure what 'SG' is.

The thing that makes Code GEASS bad is the bad writing. That doesn't mean you're not allowed to like it, but it does mean that people who don't like it don't have a legitimate reason to do so.
>>

'Doesn't mean that people who don't like it don't have a legitimate reason for doing so', that should read.

I'm not trying to appease the hivemind, just stating what I think. They're good shows, I 'like' both of them, I don't personally believe either is a 10/10.

Tastes differ. You could show me a 'masterpiece' soccer anime and I probably wouldn't think highly of it because it's not an interesting subject matter to me.

I appreciated both Mushishi and Cowboy Bebop, I acknowledge both as being 'good' shows, but neither strike a personal cord with me required to be a favourite of mine.

I think I have a more legitimate reason for regarding them as 'okay' than 'reddit likes them therefore they are bad.'

>G-Ai-Ass

Lelouche Lamperouge falls in love with Suzaku Kururugi.

Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the Geass and Suzaku's phone number from C.C. Never minding the strange area code, the Britannian immediately calls him, and is overjoyed to find out that he has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to Spinzaku, he only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the boy he called is not the same boy he fell in love with. In fact, he doesn't exist in this universe at all. He is the Honorary Britanian's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with Rurushu's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of his crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of JIBUN WO.

The purpose of writing is to entertain. Writing is good or bad depending on whether it does good or bad at fulfilling that purpose. If a lot of people liked something and were entertained by it, by definition it can't be bad.

I've rewatched R1/R2 six times now, still the best roller coaster anime that I've found, and my favorite. Steins;Gate is arguably better written and just as fun (my second favorite thriller), but CG is so consistently good over 50 episodes.

I swear all the faggots in CG threads claiming it's shit are the worst cancerous assholes on this board. It's like they're trying so hard to be edgy to try and fit in or something. Fuck off.

Code Geass is a masterpiece in its own right. Writing might be flawed and I don't think anyone would not call it a trainwreck, but no other anime in the world that is more entertaining.

You're absolutely right, that's one thing I like very much about CG.
But that is applied to the characters, the "nature of nations" thing does focus almost exclusively on Japan and it's nationalism.

R1 is great but R2 flounders and fails miserably. It is too bad because I had this show as a 9/10. Shame.
>>
>>133638110
I understand that at a glance most people would compare Code Geass to Death Note, but anyone who actually watched both should realize that they are completely different in nature.

DN is fully concentrated on its plot n' twists (it does execute them very well, admittedly) to the point that the characters have the depht of a puddle on a hot summer.
CG however, while it has its fair share of plot thickness, it's the characters and their developments that are the true meat of the show. Even a character like Nina (even if she's still one of the most unlikeble persons of the show) got a pretty great amount of development.

Comparing Lelouch's character and Light "I wanna be god because I'm smart (and that's literally it)" Yagami's is almost laughable.
CG is the better show by a landslide.
>>
>>133637700
Huh? I guess it is kinda hard to get your arm at that angle.
>>
>>133665275
The last third of R2 (from the nukezaku battle) is as good if not better than R1.
I know what you mean though, until then it is pretty bad.
Looks like they didn't know what to do with so many episodes, so they resetted things on the beginning and shoehorned a chinese ark onto it.
