    Code Geass

    Post by Halu Inferno on Mon Jun 03, 2013 4:38 pm

    "Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ Kōdo Giasu: Hangyaku no Rurūshu[color:1d30=#00e]?), often referred to as simply Code Geass, is a Japanese anime series created by Sunrise, directed by Gorō Taniguchi, and written by Ichirō Ōkouchi, with original character designs by manga authors Clamp. Set in an alternate future, the series focuses on how the former prince Lelouch Lamperouge obtains a power known as Geass and decides to use it to obliterate the Holy Britannian Empire, an imperial monarchy and a superpower that has been conquering various countries."
    ~Wikipedia

    Personally, I don't like the series and I find its philosophical undertones handled poorly against other animes of similar venture like Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy bebop, and Fullmetal Alchemist. However, I acknowledge the series has a "dedicated" fanbase and wish to discuss the anime with everyone despite my differing opinions as the anime has left an impact on the anime genre for awhile now.

    So please, discuss this anime.

    Big fan of it. Still hope Toonami can pick it up sometime.

    Uh huh... Ummm... Is your friend okay? I mean, don't get me wrong, I don't like the anime either but... It sounds like he hasn't really seen the series at all.

    He's a weird type, but he usually knows what he's talking about, so wanted to clear this up.

    Well if you value good character depth and a universe with some entertaining qualities, then I would recommend this to you. If you don't like pointy animation and a philosophy that goes a little over the top and in-your-face. I would not recommend this to you. That is, assuming you have not seen it correct?

    Favorite non-tapeworm anime.

    It feels too heavy for me. I like my anime light and cheerful, or action-packed. For philosophical stuff, I'd rather games.

    I can agree with that, the show itself has enough action to satisfy the most impatient.

    I just love all the network of intrigues, the well developed story even if it goes a bit over the top, and how ingenious Lelouch is.

    And the ending. Absolutely best thing ever.

    Spoiler:
    But... The ending was absolutely terribad with people arguing over whether Lelouch died or not...
    Spoiler:
    He obviously did.

    And since that is the case, I consider it the best ending ever. :3

    Pardon the interruption, but I have a simple question as a part of my investigation into the appeal of this anime.

    Might everyone inquire to me the specifics of what attracted you to this anime? Story, action, animation, etc.

    Story, action, and the style of protagonist, mostly.

    I really like that kind of story, and Lelouch is a superb protagonist IMO.

    Aimation is good. Action is good. The romance is okayish. The plot is good. The protagonist is amazing.

    If I could definitely sum up my opinion as well, it would pretty much be yours XD

    Except for the animation and plot. So yeah, maybe 60% the same as yours. Most of the compliments I have heard about the anime itself have usually specifically referred to the protagonist, who has won numerous awards in the Manga industry.

    On a scale of 1 - 10, Kallens hotness is 11.

    Exactly.

    This is in my top 3 of the 50 anime I've watched. I'll probably end up rewatching it (and I never do rewatchings).
