How is it that code geass has aged so well?
>>
>>134012331
CG has aged like shit and you know it.
>>
>>134012331
I don't know, anon. But certainly looks good.
>>
>>134012331
so why does code geass not have a harem tag?
>>
It was literally a once in a blue moon kind of thing. The right people were there at the right time and it just happened. It might be a very long time before we get something like this again.

>>134013879
Nah, there have been numerous copycats since CG aired but none of them have been able to replicate what CG could do or surpass it in what it did.
>>
Because Sunrise 2D mecha animation
>>
>>134012331
It doesn't forget technology exists, most shows forget anything like cellhpones exist
>>
>>134014166
Madoka was as trascendental to anime as Code Geass, specially on /a/
>>
because of SOUP.
>>
>>134012331
It's aged as well as an uneaten slice of pizza from Pizza Hut from 2006.
>>
It hasn't aged well though. You can tell when it was made around because of the colouring. It's super rewatchable because of how entertaining it is.
>>
>>134012331
Manchildren.
>>
>>134012331
Because it's fun and fukujun makes my ears orgasm.

You're on the wrong board dude.

>>134012331
Why were all of the openings after JIBUN WO such dogshit?
>>
>>134016159
because JIBUN WO was the greatest OP of all time
>>
>>134016159
JIBUN WO is a meme and a crappy OP.
>>
>>134012331
It's a shame the new OVAs are shit

>>134016159
Hitomi no Tsubasa was better, though.

>Mfw they announce a new Code Geass series right after Akito 5 finishes taking place after Lelouch's shit or way before it during whatever version of their world is WWI.
>>
>>134012331
>How is it that code geass has aged so well?
Well, it's pretty fabulous in parts, and Western society has become a lot faggier...
>>
Is the last Akito episode out yet?
>>
>>134012331
>how has it aged so well
I guess it's aged well because, quite simply, it wasn't shit to begin with. Most of the anime's that have "aged badly" so to speak were never that great in the first place and were just well-liked because people were caught up in the hype of the current season at the time.

Visually speaking it has aged like shit, but it's actually a relatively well-told story and uses lots of popular tropes without butchering/meme-ifying them

CG thread??

posting best girl
>>
>>134012331
Because Lelouch is awesome.

Most main characters nowadays are shit.
>>
>>134019784
You.
You don't watch anime anymore do you?

Literally all the harem anime that have been coming out have amazing protagonists.

Gundam has amazing protagonists.

No. What made Code Geass so awesome was the perfect, and I mean PERFECT balance between world-building and characters. Not many shows can do both at the same time without overshadowing the other. Gundam is usually all world-building and very little characters, as well as some fantasy anime while everything else is just character drama.

Is this bait?

Every time

I watched for the first time last month I thought it aged damn well. I'm guessing the "le glorious trainwreck" meme adds a touch of bias for those who watched as it aired, more so if they watched with /a/.

Thematically CG touches on some interesting shit. Political intrigue, the concept of loyalty, nationalism, etc. made for a much more enjoyable watch than most anime so I have a hard time understanding why people pick on it so much. It's by know means bad, though season 2 lowers my opinion of the series quit a bit. They couldn't help but play into the "oh so wacky" nature of the first season.
>>
>>134020279
>PERFECT world-building
the high school eps were boring
>>
>>134012331
It is still the same poorly written trainwreck that aired years ago

>being generic shit is okay when geass does it
No, fuck off
>>
>>134016159
I CONTINUE TO FIGHT is pretty good too.
>>
>>134020530
>generic
>trainwreck
Stop spouting buzzwords and pick one and only one.
>>
>>134020471
No that anon but I would totally watch an anime that's just the Ashford Student Council doing Student Council things.
>>
>>134012331
Because Code Geass is the most entertaining anime ever made.
>>
>>134016159
>implying the last one wasn't the best
>>
>>134020678
because it was made by the same guys who did JIBUN WO

^this opening was a fucking trainwreck
>>
>>134012331
It's easy for a show to "age well" if it was never good.

It's like you don't watch the shows so your judging their lead males off of secondhand accounts and what you think to be the "normal" way of thinking.

Most harem anime have some pretty likeable ass protagonists, and I mean most.
>>
>>134014166
It might be a very long time before we get something like this again.

Valvrave already happened though
>>
>>134014940
FUCK YOU
>>
>>134020807
Saru was so fucking based.
>>
Because people still love Pizza Hut.
>>
>>134012331
Probably because it was already shit back then.
>>
>>134016159
>implying meme OP is better than World End
>>
>anime I watched with /a/ while it aired is now considered "aged"
>>
it's all because of pizza hut
>>
>>134020570
> Death Note with robots and somewhat more gay
> not generic or a tranwreck
>>
>>134016676
Kill yourself.
>>
>>134020471
How do you live without a soul?
>>
>>134012331
It was an accidental gem. Look at shit like Valvrave and Aldnoah, they tried to do the same shit and it just became a laughing stock for /a/ to ridicule every episode.

Code Geass somehow did it right. That's not to say there weren't weak points (Mao, C's world) but the story was entertaining enough, the characters memorable enough, and Lelouch being charismatic enough that people just didn't care. Not to mention one of the best endings in all of anime (which people still debate over today)

Code Geass isn't perfect, but what it did right, it knocked out of the park.
>>
>>134012331
It has nice music that fit the scenes.

Last time I checked, those things were barely food and basically immortal. So close enogh, I guess
>>
>>134028828
I would try to argue with you, but then I remember that GC, which tried to emulate CG and had the same writers, failed so spectacularly it was not even funny.

What was wrong with Mao, though? Gee, you must really hate mind rape.
>>
JIBUN WOOO
>>
>>134017380
Them thighs though.
>>
>>134020911
>Valvrave already happened though
The difference with Valverave was that the production time was litterally making shit up as they go, and they really had no end plan. Code Geass is unusual as it was one of the few Sunrise Originals that was written with its ending already planned out, so the characters all had to lead to that ending no matter what. That kepts the craziness consistwent and directional. Valverave ended up being directionless.
