Finally. Gonna go download it now.

Was that a prototype of FELJA Yukiya dropped?
>>
>>133647421
Nah, Id' say it looks like a bomb that uses Sakuradite. Like what Lelouch had strapped to him at the end of season 1, or when he blew up the tanker

If it's separate subs you need to download the raw for, I decline. I do not deal in such plebeian activities and accept only the most high quality full releases, already muxed for my enjoyment.

>>133647421
Sakuradite bombs have pink explosions, but it's not a FLEIJA. It's too small in radius and doesn't have any expanding field.
>>
>>133647738
Akito 3 was released with subs a few months earlier this same year, so it's not like you would have forgotten that one so quickly unless you didn't see it.
>>
>>133648156
Well, what did you expect? Lelouch got his mind broken last time. He wasn't really going to be moving around freely.
>>
>>133650636
Probably just having them return to Britannia after Shin gets killed off. That'll be all.

Unlikely.

Besides, Orange's anti-Geass is reversed. Hers isn't.

Leila is more likely to survive than anyone else in Akito

Ok sure, the anniversary is coming up and we don't know what they will do, but I highly doubt a remake has crossed their minds. Not that anyone would mind, but the original is classic status now, no need to update it. Perhaps an HD remaster?

With Akito and Oz, Sunrise seems intent on making Code Geass their 2nd Gundam, so I am expecting a big announcement next year.

Add in that the Admin chick opens up more possibilities.

You can't replace Gundam. Gundam is a one time thing. It won't happen again.

>>
>>133663633
IMO watching Suzaku and Lancelot wreck shit in fully-choreographed 2015 fight scene-quality (despite the CGI) made up for it. I've been waiting over seven years for more white knight action.

It's decent. Similar in tone with Akito, basically a pretty standard mecha (and I mean that in a good way).

>Better than Nightmare of Nunally?
Yes, definitely.
>>
Episode 4 felt pretty generic for the most part but it became better by the end. Leila's counter-geass activating was pretty hype.
>>
>>133663611
Geass is only a mini-Gundam right now. It'll take much much time and much more money and many more fans before it can even be a candidate. It's still one of their biggest secondary properties (save for Love Live I guess).
>>
>>133653746
Adds basically nothing except wondering why the EU was never addressed more in R2
>>
>>133663541
Well, that's literally what Akito does. He was ordered to DIE after all.
>>
We all agree that More Than Words is the best thing about this series, right?
>>
>>133663633
That wasn't really a waste though. Just a detour for character stuff and humor. In any case, the newest one is all action, all politics, all everything else.
>>
>>133663755
You should probably change your expectations since Suzaku got himself captured and won't suddenly go from glorious Russian lands to a castle in Eastern Germany for the finale. You got your white knight action in the 3rd OVA.

Oz feels more like Code Geass without being as absurd as NoN
>>
>>133664271
Although the vast majority of Geass love stems from the main cast and not the concept. From my understanding, the show is popular because Lelouch and the gang are popular, and their story is over. The military science fiction is secondary.

Just look at Akito - the only thing people want to see is more Lelouch and Suzaku. They steal the show wherever they are because they are. You can't keep milking their popularity for further franchise-expansion without the risk of tainting the original story.

At least that's how I see it.
>>
>>133664204
Well you can't exactly re-invent the wheel in a mecha war story at this point.
>>
>>133663851
>>133663956
Between this taking three weeks to have subs released and Oz not getting scanlated, I'm surprised just how small of an English fanbase Code Geass has as a bigger franchise.
>>
>>133664271
Of course it'll take more. And thats what Sunrise is doing now with Akito the Exiled and Oz the Reflection. And I have no doubt that we'll see something new announced next year since both will (likely) be ending.
>>
>>133664346
It's nice. I like other things about it though.
>>
>>133664463
The thing is, to an extent, Code Geass kind of did. So to be watching something with the franchise's title being generic feels all sorts of wrong.
>>
>>133664459
>Just look at Akito - the only thing people want to see is more Lelouch and Suzaku. They steal the show wherever they are because they are. You can't keep milking their popularity for further franchise-expansion without the risk of tainting the original story.
That only applies over here though. In Nip land, Akito the Exiled has been a big success, with the recent episode having great BD sales, going over 10,000 in the first week.
>>
>>133664346
When it started playing as an insert song this episode. Too good.
>>
>>133664459
This. I like the cast, but fans go wild for the more well known and, lets face it, better fleshed out characters who's fates are predetermined at this point. I have an investment in the characters as far as these OVA series are concerned, but I am fully expecting them all to die by the end. It won't even be a bad end for them.
>>
>>133664430
Yeah, I'm not expecting anything better out of Akito. I didn't even assume the two protags would even show up in the first place, so I'm already satisfied.

I just wish the OVA had some cooler knightmare designs. You totally get a feel for how they move and function with those landspeeders moreso than the original series, but most of the action is with those alexanders unfortunately. Would love to see Guren and Lancelot go at it in that style.
>>
>>133664370
>and humor.
absolutely disgusting
>>
>>133664463
Sunrise had no problem with Gundam's OYW. Don't see how that's going to stop them with CG.

Besides, CG is pretty much Gundam anyway.
>>
>>133664552
If Akito the Exiled had been receiving a treatment similar to Gundam the Origin in the west by Sunrise, I imagine it would be a lot more popular just through having a wider accessibility sooner.
>>
>>133664459
Thing is, that's usually the case with almost every popular show. Most people like characters more than concepts, alone unless you're talking to hipsters or snobs .

Even with Gundam. It was a mix of characters and iconic robots. Amuro and Char were extremely popular at the time. It was only after CCA ended that Gundam as a completely unrelated concept started to become a possibility with the likes of G Gundam. You don't necessarily need to make the same thing all over again or include the same characters.

For the record though, people do buy things related to Geass that don't necessarily have Lelouch in a prominent position or even at all. Obviously he's the most popular element, but different people can and do enjoy other aspects in addition to him (and some don't even happen to like him personally for that matter)

It depends on who you ask. Akito has been pretty upfront about Lelouch and Suzaku only being guest stars for half an episode. Which was the only thing they could do with them. This isn't and won't be their story. It was a nice acknowledgement for the fans, sure, but their role is basically over. I think there will always be different ways of "milking" and so far they were smart enough to not make a sequel. Having Lelouch show up for a glorified cameo doesn't hurt the property nor does it break the time line either. There was a one year gap in his life that they decided to make more interesting.
>>
>>133664477
Actually, going by the number of times I've seen people asking for subs and name dropping Geass in other contexts, I'd say the English speaking fanbase is pretty large for an old show. Just obviously nothing like it was eight years ago at its peak.
>>
>>133656475
I remember they had 1 cool fight and they partied with gypsies.
>>
>>133664546
Code Geass made a more entertaining mecha show with a neat twist via the anti-hero being the protagonist, but you can't really repeat that without changing the formula. Unless you think each nnew protagonist needs to out do Lelouch at his own game.

"Generic" is a matter of perspective. Do you think every single mecha show that isn't Code Geass qualifies as such? Honestly, I was getting tired of stuff like Valvrave and Guilty Crown. Akito feels closer to what I want to see right now.
>>
>>133664459
Akito BDs have been killing it. So yes, CG can go on as long as Bamco wants to.
>>
>>133664657
Thats not exactly fair either since Sunrise is only recently trying to get back into the Western market, so they're not doing too much. In addition, they licensed it to Funi since they weren't expecting to get back into the Western market so they can't do it themselves like with Gundam.
>>
>>133664743
I would watch a loose reboot. Just tell other crazy mech stories with the same characters.
>>
>>133664552
Curiously, the first two episdoes of Akito the Exiled, without significant Lelouch screen time, sold more than the third (which had Lelouch spend over ten minutes messing up the Euro Britannians) or the fourth. That said, it's clear that the first volume of any anime title will sell more than the rest, at least as a general rule. And of course, it's clear some people like things like the 3DCG mecha battles as another point of interest even if they weren't even big fans of the original show.
>>
>>133664743
I like how Akito handled the franchise. I'd love to see the universe become more fleshed out and believable, but with ties back to the original series in safe doses, which is basically what Akito is doing.

It'd never happen and would probably be a stupid investment for Sunrise, but I'd love to see an extended version of the original series. The pacing is so quick that there's plenty of room to flesh out what they already made. Fix all the R2 silliness as well. Some plot points jumped around so fast that I had to really stretch my suspension of disbelief. and reduce Lelouch and Suzaku's limb length, seriously CLAMP come on

Really, I'm just unhealthily addicted to the original series.
>>
>>133664613
Well, there was a Code Geass pachislot game that had some 3D action sequences. You can find footage on youtube.
>>
>>133664934
I wouldn't mind if Geass became a series that kept the casts but in different "universes" sort of like what Nightmare of Nunnally was.

Hell, I think it'd be cool to do a Code Geass anime that also had the Akito cast alongside the original cast, or even the Oz cast too.
>>
>>133665013
>Really, I'm just unhealthily addicted to the original series.
mah accomplice
>>
>>133665013
>Some plot points jumped around so fast that I had to really stretch my suspension of disbelief

When you marathon it things move so quickly that you don't even have time to lose your suspension of disbelief. Before you can finish thinking how stupid something is something else has happened and you're back on the edge of your seat.
>>
>>133664874
I remember the flashback to Leila's past including C.C. showing up in it. Also more interactions between her and Akito
>>
>>133664934
We might get some of that, but I think we will see somethin like a proper TV-length Geass Wing, G Geass or Geass X before anything else.
>>
>>133664885
I'm not complaining about Akito as a whole, but a lot of this episode was like rushing through as many clichés as quickly as possible. I still liked it by the end, and I'm really looking forward to the last episode.
>>
>>133664885
>I was getting tired of stuff like Valvrave and Guilty Crown. Akito feels closer to what I want to see right now.
Akito feels quite generic though. Why don't you want train wreck series anymore? Aren't those the most fun?
>>
>>133665013
Well, recently in Oz, they've been sort of "expanding" on R2 since its running alongside its events now.

Jeremiah showed up to fight the characters, Nonette is cuurently an active character, and the manga cast recently had a brief skirmish with Kallen in Tokuo in the Guren Seiten right before she saved Lelouch. And of course, Marika just got retconned into surviving.

Also, Oz revealed how Nunnally escaped from Tokyo as two of the characters were her escort.
>>
>>133665013
I think a Code Geass prequel is more likely than an extended retelling, with young Charles being played by someone who isn't Wakamoto since he's apparently not available these days and cute boy Lelouch showing up like Amuro just did in the Origin.
>>
>>133665150
I'll admit some of these events are relatively typical for a war story, but it would be a lie to claim there was nothing cliched about the TV series in the first place.

That said, I liked that Klaus happened to be a spy after all but not an asshole. The cliche would have been to reveal he's been betraying everyone and then either shoot him or make him join the bad guys.
>>
>>133665212
Unlikely there. Sunrise obviously would want to stick to something that can have mecha in it, and KMFs were first used in the Japan conquest, so they can't do anything with it.

Plus, I don't think Renya did that well.
>>
>>133665150
Probably because time constraints. Akane wanted to do a series, but Sunrise chose it to be an OVA.
Hell, it was gonna only be 4 eps until recently.
>>
>>133665159
The thing is, I thought Code Geass had the right balance of craziness and fun plus actually interesting contents even if it also had generic aspects (starting with the school scenes, but also Shirley dying and other things). Ergo, it wasn't a trainwreck other than in terms of not initially knowing where it would go in the midst of the broadcast.

Guilty Crown was pretty crap. Incredibly dark and nihilistic to the point of making Akito look lighthearted in comparison. Shu was absolutely annoying as a protagonist while Inori was a nothing girl.

Valvrave seemed like it was going for something, but other than a couple of episodes I felt totally underwhelmed as time passed and the ending disappointed me. They also repeated too many things I have already seen before, yet without even giving it the sort of directorial and storytelling quality I'd usually require to swallow these things.

Geass Akito isn't as crazy, of course, and it does follow a standard mold in some ways, but it also has some craziness showing up in small doses without throwing away the baby with the bathwater.
>>
>>133665281
It's really nice that Leila's belief in people never dies to the end.

At many points I felt like it was about to end in a negative note but things kept turning positive. I guess it did end on Yukiya's supposed death but I still have hope he survived that explosion.
>>
>>133665101
Pretty much what I did when I re-watched the series recently. Lots of shit bothered me.

>how did the Black Knights mass-produce 1,000,000 Zero costumes and convince everyone to go along with the plan?
>iceberg ship?
>did Lelouch transport a replica of his room all the way to that Mongolian desert just to fool V2?
>how did even get there so fast in the first place?
>how the fuck did Lelouch manage to rig the entire Tokyo settlement with gefjun disturbers?
>why are all the Chinese and Britain royal guards using pikes? Why aren't there snipers on every rooftop?
>did anyone notice Suzaku just clinging to the ceiling waiting for Lelouch to make his grand entrance in Pendragon?

I could go on and on. Code Geass is a show that opens itself up to countless plot holes and logical gaps because of it's complexity. But for the most part, it does a very good job of filling them in. Any storyteller with less attention to detail would have butchered the series.

I'd love to see a rebooted/director's cut edition that added a few more minutes to each episode to go further into detail to make Lelouch's schemes even better.
>>
>>133665417
Surprised they didn't censor that

>>133665483
BD came out on Oct 28, well before the recent attack
>>
>>133665305
Hey, if they visibly changed the history of mecha development and added flashforwards to the Origin, they can do the same with KMF development. Shift things around and make the first three generations of robots kind of cool to look at.

>>133665477
You should listen to the audio commentary for Code Geass R2 episode 8 and you'll get the right and surprisingly frank answer to the first of those questions.

Which is basically that this is anime and there are no limits here.

Fuck, the director himself said that in a very early interview during production of the first season that they were willing to throw realism away for the sake of making things entertainment and full of energy.

So it's ultimately pointless to waste time asking logistical questions when the staff would tell you it's not relevant to their objectives for the show.
>>
>>133665561
Who? Oldrin? Marrybell? Regardless, I'd gladly welcome an Oz anime adaptation.
>>
>>133665674
>So it's ultimately pointless to waste time asking logistical questions when the staff would tell you it's not relevant to their objectives for the show.
Fucking based. Wished more had the balls to stick to their vision of entertaining and making something they enjoy rather than pandering for sales.
>>
>>133665561
Isn't it doing worse than Akito sales wise? I heard the plot was shittier, too.
>>
>>133665768
Well, in this case one of those things is in fact tied to the other. Though the unique thing is this show actually did sell a ton, whereas others that try to do the same thing don't.
>>
>>133665206
>Marika just got retconned

Wasn't she the floozy of Luciano "Gets Killed First" Bradley? I don't think they even mentioned her name in the series. Weird choice for a retcon.

Anyway, I'm definitely gonna have to read it now.

>>133665539
We'd get to see Marianne the Flash take on Bismarck in those rickety old gen-3 knightmares.
>>
>>133665862
>Wasn't she the floozy of Luciano "Gets Killed First" Bradley? I don't think they even mentioned her name in the series. Weird choice for a retcon.
Yeah, her.
She was a recurring character for a wgile in Oz, and was engaged to one of the main characters.

Anyway, unless you can read moon, you'll have to find a translator since no one is translating this manga.
Which suck cause even mediocre Renya got fully translated.

>>133665811
No clue. I have seen sales for Oz. And I disagree on the plot being shittier. From what I hear, it sounds like typical Geass fare.
>>
>>133665861
True. I guess I just wish the market allowed for these studios to still try to push the bar creatively. Keep testing the waters and entertain viewers with interesting, fun, immersive stories.
>>
>>133665962
*Haven't seen
>>
>>133664874
That shit was retarded but I still loved it.
>>
>>133665811

Oz has more Geass-style over-the-top mannerisms and there is pseudo-yuri fanservice, but the twin brother-sister and their predicaments seem interesting enough in terms of dramatics too. There is a lot of cool robot action with familiar designs as well.
>>
>>133665674
IMO attention to detail and making the show entertaining aren't mutually exclusive. You can have both. Either way, Code Geass succeeded in the latter by far - way more than enough to make up for the lack of the former. And there was a very thick attention to detail for the most part - I think the director is underselling himself. It's just that CG was so damn ambitious, they were bound to fail in some regards and just said "fuck it".
>>
>>133666072
I thought it was nice to have a change of scenery and not just go back to high school for the humor again.
>>
>>133665962
Damn. Well, I waited three years for a single chapter translation of Birdy the Mighty. I can wait for Oz.
>>
Would Code Geass have been an objectively better series if:

>CLAMP designs toned down Lulu/Suzaku's flamboyance
>highschool SoL shit was removed or replaced with laid-back military academy
>>
>>133666100
>>133666100
This is true, but Taniguchi would tell you that his dedication to attention to detail in the case of this show called Code Geass wasn't about figuring out "how did Lelouch get from on top of this building and the go back to the ground floor below?" and those sorts of quasi-scientific or physics-based questions. For him, the show was largely a theatrical performance (almost a musical in spirit at times, albeit not in strict genre conventions]). I mean, he literally says the show is a picaresque romance (in the adventure sense of romance). Occasionally they did reveal how Lelouch set something up, early on, but they increasingly made that less important even within the first season.
>>
>>133666223
No.
>>
>>133666223
I liked the flamboyance. Code Geass wouldn't be the same without CLAMP.

The high school content had its moments, but it would be interesting to have it take place in a military academy too, I guess.
>>
>>133666264
Now I'm imagining Lelouch and Suzaku spontaneously breaking out into a duet from opposite ends of a battlefield.

Code Geass: The Musical when?
>>
>>133666264
It did not present itself like a normal anime at all, which it what hooked so much of its audience.
>>
>>133666359
So basically gay Macross Frontier.
>>
>>133666464
Code Geass is basically a Gundam tribute (or parody depending on how you look at it).
>>
>>133643471
Leila is such a semen demon
>>
So is literally nobody scanlating OZ the reflection?
No raw providers, nothing at all?
>>
I just can't stand this CGI. Recently rewatched 1st and 2nd season just to made me realize how much better mecha animation was back then compared to now.
>>
>>133666540
It's basically the best Gundam show despite not donning the name and Lelouch is the best Char there is.
>>
>>133666899
I like it. The choreography and camerawork make up for the fact it's not hand drawn. The fights are great.

For a new TV anime I would want to go back to 2D, though.
>>
>>133666464
Honestly, it was just well-written in the most basic regard. It scored every mark on the "how to write a compelling story" checklist. It has a LOT in common with Game of Thrones and its meteoric rise to popularity.

>characters' goals and endgames are established immediately (conquer westeros with dragons/destroy britannia)
>characters are given a clear path towards those goals so the audience can HYPE over it as progress is made each week (oh shit my favorite character has dragons/an army/geass I can't wait to see Joffrey/Charles get what's coming to him!)
>emotionally devastating gut-punchers (red wedding/Euphy)

And Geass was amazingly well-paced in the first season (except those three Mao episode). There was a clear escalation of action and the stakes constantly being raised towards a climactic finale. Fuck, R1 had such a perfect formula.
>>
>>133666824
No, there are raws. Just no one is translating it.
>>
>>133665417
Wow.
>>
>>133666991
This. It seemed to take alot of cues from western television especially with the sequel bait at the end of R1. Wish more anime could do the same.
>>
>>133667025
Welp. Time to start learning japanese. again.
>>
>>133666899
I disagree. The original series had some pretty stupid knightmare fight scenes. Mook KMFs basically stood in place or moved in one direction as they fired straight ahead before getting blown up. The power imbalance was pretty laughable. The Guren/Lancelot fight scenes were tight, though.

Akito is CGI, yes, but the choreography is top notch. You can see the weight and momentum behind each attack and really get an idea of how the knightmares work. Like rollerblading mech soldiers. Watching a whole group of Sutherlands get trashed actually feels believable this time around instead of just plot armor for the main characters.
>>
>>133663755
Nightmare of Nunally is shit
>>
>>133667164
Yeah, it was too off the wall for my taste. Knightmare zombies and shit... come on. I liked how it gave Euphy and Suzaku a happy ending. Because I'm so emotionally fragile.
>>
>>133666094
Doesn't it also have another britannian princess who has the same geass as Lelouch? How is that going?
>>
>>133665459
Could they have hamfisted his deathflag any harder?
>>
>>133667403
Yeah. Marrybell. She's basically female Lelouch.
>>
>>133667731
It was pretty obvious but being that this is Code Geass I don't doubt he could've survived that explosion

I mean, they all survived one earlier this episode to begin with
>>
>>133667731
>implying he's dead
>>
How come every single one of the top knightmare pilots in both series are never Britannian? They invented the damn things, why can't they pilot them? Just more self-pleasuring by Japan.

This always annoyed the shit out of me. Even when we get a non-Japanese pro knightmare pilot, he's fuckin Chinese. And the EU doesn't even have knightmare pilots. Leila is literally the only European to get shit done, and she's technically Britannian.
>>
>>133668069
>technically Britannian

So are the Elevens.
>>
>>133666359
There was a real Code Geass musical back in 2012 or 2013, I believe.
>>
>>133668137
She was such a qt. I'm disappointed she turned out to be such brown-nosing floozy. Glad Suzaku put her in her place.
>>
>>133643471
it was shit tho
and had the worst pacing of the four ovas
>>
>>133666464
I'd say it presented itself like a kaleidoscope of things that are usually normal enough by themselves but aren't always combined
>>
>>133666824
There are raws now, but for a long time there weren't.

Also, I imagine most people who would be interested in theory don't actually now Oz exists either, including the translators
>>
>>133666899
I prefer 2d animation myself, but I think the 3D made by Orange is quite good here and in other shows like MJP and Fafner as long as you aren't against 3DCG as a matter of principle
>>
>>133668217
very true
>>
>>133668069
Bismarck is the best, but he got beat by superior hardware
>>
>>133667941
True, though I have a feeling he'll probably be wounded as fuck and die next episode in any case.
>>
>>133668310
Suzaku had superior hardware, but Bismarck could see the future. I'd say it was a fair fight.
>>
>>133668195
I liked it more than 3, especially since here there wasn't a side show taking up half the space. The pacing felt right to me. Just smooth enough.
>>
>>133668344
Suzaku had Lelouch casting Geass on him which gave him like +5 in all stats. Hardly a fair fight.
>>
>>133668069
Funny, people have historically said Japan can't do shit for itself in Geass.
>Lelouch: Britannian
>Kallen: Half-Britannian
>Rakshata: Indian
>Diethard: Britannian

Britannia has the biggest talent pool by far in their world, between the Knight of Rounds, various royalty, and their personal squads.
>>
>>133668488
Seriously. The various ways this show shits on japan/japanese characters got downright vicious in certain episodes.
>>
>>133643471
Code Geass is easily my favorite show of all time.I worship Code Geass

But I never watched Akito the Exiled. Nothing about it really made me want to strap in and watch it. Is it any good?

P.S. Jhonny Yong Bosch is a better Lelouch than Jun Fukiyama will ever be.
>>
One thing that always stuck out to me in Code Geass is that while the Britannians ARE jerks.

They seem quite benevolent in comparison to Japan during WW2... CG is sort of the pot calling the kettle black really.

No, it's just you trying to start irrelevant shit.
>>
>>133668592
Akito is good. Distances itself from the show enough that you can appreciate the cast for who they are. Pretty straightforward plot with predictable, yet entertaining twists. Maaya Sakamoto lends her voice both as a seiyuu and singer to the anime which is another plus for me. Check it out, its harmless.
>>
>>133668696
I just feel like if a Japanese writer wants to make the enemy look truly evil they should check their own country's history.

People talk about the U.S. being violent but we could never hope to have nearly as much blood on our hands as the Japs.
>>
>>133668592
It's alright, but don't expect a direct copy of the original Code Geass in any sense. I would call it an extra or bonus scenario, if this were a game.
>>
>>133665561
But it doesn't have THE immensely best girl.

So is this the most pointless episode ever made?

Because that's what I liked about Code Geass.
>>
>>133668776

Copy pasta:

1. Takeda Seiji, MBS producer, stating that CG Britannia = RL WWII Japan and CG Japan = RL Korea / Taiwan. He's notorious for interpreting his shows in favour of his own political views, regardless of the director and scriptwriters' intentions. [...]

2. [Director Goro] Taniguchi, in a separate interview printed on the EXACT same page as Takeda Seiji's, stating that Code Geass isn't a political show.

3. Taniguchi, in another magazine interview released between Stage 23 and 24+25, commenting on the "Code Geass is anti-America!" views early on: "Britannia is just like America? Wow, I never knew!".*

*In case anyone's confused, it wasn't a "Well, duh" statement -- it was more along the lines of: "The US is currently led by an Emperor with WTF-curls who believes that all men are not created equal? I had no idea!".
>>
>>133668592
It's fucked up how JYB and Yuri - two awful VAs who ruin everything - are absolutely perfect for their roles in Code Geass. They were both great. Crispin Freeman as Jeremiah was flawless as well. Kallen too. I can't really think of a shitty VA for the dub.
>>
>>133668843
No?

Things actually happen. Far less pointless than the first half of the previous episode.
>>
>>133668592
>Jhonny Yong Bosch is a better Lelouch than Jun Fukiyama will ever be.
>Geassfags were dubfags all along
It all makes sense now
>>
>>133668828
>All caps
Do people truly write this way?
>>
>>133668852
There's an extended sequence in episode three that does feel like that sort of Code Geass trickery. There are other tactical scenes, but they're not that over-the-top in comparison. More normal in nature.
>>
>>133668931
There are both dubfags and subfags among Geass viewers
>>
>>133668882
>I can't really think of a shitty VA for the dub.
Rebecca Forstadt as Nunally was a bit grating...
But I still prefer the dub.
>>
>>133668882
How do nips feel about the dub? I feel it was better than the sub, but thats just me.
>>
>>133668776
By that logic all anime will need to have Go Nagai tier villains.
By that logic, all American movies too will need to have villains that are at least KKK tier, because even if it's not Japan WWII tier, there's still more fucked up shit in American history than what you typically see in a film.

That's just you interpreting what you want to interpret. And once again, it's irrelevant to discussion.
>>
>>133668982
She was the weakest link with any relevance, yes.
>>
>>133668982
I preferred her to the generic bubble gum and flowery voice that are usually given to gentle girl characters like her in japanese dubs.
>>
>>133668942
Sounds like the Star Wars prequels to me now.

Has a little bit of the old spark that made the original works great but not enough to make it interesting to hardcore fans.
>>
>>133668982
Agreed. In part because of the VA (both dub and sub) I found it really hard to like Nunally. Didn't see a reason why she was Lelouch's sole motivation. The only part of his character I didn't like.

Euphy was a much better alternative. She actually had a character arc and did things. When Nunally got nuked in R2, I was kind of relieved she was gone, honestly. Too bad that didn't last.
>>
>>133669079
Not at all. Akito is meant to be a more conventional mecha with some genuinely astounding CG mecha battles. The focus is meant to be different from the main series.
>>
>NoN
>not liking bara Lelouch
Shit taste
>>
>>133669079
Eh, the Star Wars prequels were a lot more grating to watch in my experience and didn't contribute anything truly interesting other than overtly explaining the Force and giving Palpatine extra characterization. Anakin's downfall was rather disapppointing to see.

This is more like your
standard Gundam spin-off that is technically perfectly watchable but not everyone will necessarily appreciate.
>>
>>133669140
I originally hated seeing Nunnally alive, but I think it made for a worthwhile sequence in the last episode, where Lelouch finally overcomes the obstacle she represented as the faux excuse for all his actions. Also, the Japanese voice actress totally sold the crying and screaming when Lelouch was stabbed.
>>
I wonder why does Lelia hold Akito up as if he is her lover. It's so strange on where this romance suddenly come from.
>>
>>133668488
Oh, and motherfucking LLOYD
>>
>>133669541
Calling it romance might be too strong a term, but there is probably a crush of some sort involved. I think she was fairly interested in Akito back when he survived the first operation and later wanted to help him out with his issues during the second one. They also had a couple of bonding moments during the previous OVA, including the dancing and him not turning her away like he had done once before.
>>
>>133669541
Brood long enough and you're bound to attract some broken bird who's maternal instincts finds you irresistible.
>>
>>133669404
>faux excuse for all his actions

Lot of people still argue that this is just headcanon. That Lelouch really did care for her. I want to believe he was just lying to himself because he didn't want to consider it nothing more than petty revenge against his father. I still don't know what to think. better rewatch the series
>>
>>133669643
Kind of, but just brooding is probably not enough. Akito actually has had a few moments of normalcy, so it seems plausible she could see good in him.
>>
>>133669675
Lelouch did care for her in terms of family and all, but he really was using his sister too much in order to cover up why he really wanted to get stuff done. It hurt him to realize such a thing, but he eventually accepted that.
>>
>>133668828
Fuck, I had forgotten about that moment ;_;

>>133668852
Alas, no.

>>133668937
When carving into wax.
>>
>>133669688
True. Most notably in the third OVA. Once again, in a "normal" anime the MC would most certainly not dance with the heroine and look so boss while doing it.

To an extent, but it was fitting. He's somewhat of a thickheaded character. Ashley is obssessed wtih luck and ran out of bullets, which probably means fate doesn't want him to kill Akito.

>>133676182
The only "free pass" she ever gave them was in episode two. Which made sense giving her depression over sending Japanese to die. It doesn't seem like you understand Leila yourself and are just angry.
