Code Geass R2 episode 22– It gets weirder and weirder

hey looky there,  I want somthing right now.

What happened to this great show?

Lelouch is just another anti-villain. He supposedly has these great ideals but all he is doing is gaining power for himself. Last season he was a rebel fighting for good, and now he is a jackass making people his slaves. He even takes a room of people and uses geass on them just to do that. It is absolutely silly. Instead of creating a world of peace he is just spouting off about destroying everything. Schneizel is not any better. Through in the allusion to Greek mythology in the form of the sword of Damocles and he is just as bad. He starts dropping Freya on people. And poor little Japan is stuck in the middle.

The U.N.  would be a lot cooler if this happened.

There are no heroes in this show anymore. The princess-girl in charge of Japan is just as bad as Lelouch. She has no power to hurt so she doesn’t but she did try to force Zero to marry her. She was just going to use Zero for her own ends. Now that Zero is no longer useful to her she throws a big cage around Lelouch. She is no better then Lelouch going crazy in Britannia. Also she does not want Britannia to join because she would lose her power. If power is based on democracy and she does not want to give that up does she really believe in democracy? Kallen is also all to ready to kill Lelouch even though he still cares for her as much as anyone.

It is kinda rude to box an emperor

Nunally is back, which makes me mad. She was in the flash and everything. Why did the super-nurse-ninja not tell Lelouch she was still alive? This is ridiculous. Is Lelouch now going to change all of his plans because she is back? Why did she let Schneizel destroy a city? Either she is another pawn or she is guilty herself of killing folks. I think this episode is better the last three but dang if the story is cliché, boring, and not what Code Geass could have been.

Just go watch Death Not for a good anti-villain. I really don’t know where this is going but it does not look good. Zero Requiem better be the most badass thing in the world.

  1. He intends to unite the world against him (or under him), even if he is hated, as a way to sacrifice himself for his sins.

    Power for its own sake isn’t the point at all, but I guess it wasn’t explained too clearly. There are some instances though.

    The main problem with the show is that it’s trying to do too much when it just doesn’t have the time to mess around. Keeping it simple, as the saying goes, would have helped.

  2. I guess if he is trying to unite it against him why is he belittling his family? Why is he using Geass so freely? although you do make a great insight.

  3. Madonis is pretty much right he wants the world to unite against him because in the world he is trying to create he,schneizel and other super people cant exist.

    hes using his geass freely on his relatives cause he wants to take them down with him, cause well he hates britania so hes destroying it and uses it freely on others cause hes using them for his master plan, they’re all pawns and its cause they’re britanian loyalists whom he hates unlike karen and ougi or the others which he doesn’t really hate.

    And about kaguya, how old are you?! that has got to be one of the most childish interpretations ive ever heard.

    ONE, she insisted that lelouch and her were married because of the political status and that was more or less correct when he was still zero since the leader of the black knights and japan are politically wed. she didn’t force it on lelocuh. Also she eas happy about it cause she greatly admired him before, at least until she found out he was using them as pawns. Or so they were LED to believe

    TWO the cage is an anti measure against geass

    THREE its not about her losing power, right now they’re all equal, but when lelouch joins, hell practically be in control of it since britania has the highest population rate and since he could geass them all, its logical that he might geass them all and make them vote what he wants, therefore he’ll be in control

    And lastly, kallen doesnt even freaking KNOW. shes not that smart so yes she might kill zero/lelouch

  4. I disagree. There are easier ways for him to take down his relatives, it is petty and silly to turn them into servents. From the very beginning Kaguya was going to use Lelouch and she only stopped when he was no longer useful. Understand the cage but even they should know that Lelouch would pull something. It is about power. They turned on Zero for power and they fight Lelouch for power. And Kallen knows. that is why she kissed him.

  5. I’m gonna have to agree with Nico on this one (and thus agree with Madonis as well). Pretty much took the words out of my mouth and made them better. 😀

    Just like everyone else, im disappointed with this show and what Sunrise has done to it. I’m really starting to lose interest and i just want to see how they can wrap this up so i can watch other anime i have been eying on since the start of summer. (meh, watching too much anime isn’t my thing.)
