And so we’ve come to the end of another series. The more of these I do, the less inclined I am to come with up cumulative comments. I watched CODE GEASS, it was fun, and now it’s time to start a new show. I don’t know, “remake” is the worst word imaginable to purists, but I’d say this might actually benefit from some adaptation which weaved all the strings of this epic tapestry into something tighter and free of all the frayed ends. Then again, if we took out all the ridiculous stuff, we wouldn't have this unique, outrageous experience, so maybe it’d be better to let to just let this cheetah keeps it polka dot spots. I’ll give this credit over something like TRIGUN for at least seeming to be intentionally ridiculous.
I mean, this is a show where…
- “Spinzaku” has the supreme marksmenship needed to shoot a helmet in half.
- Cybernetic implants grant some random villain the gift of Engrish. "Back from behind!"
- Everybody, from mousy research assitants to mousy high school students, knows how to pilot highly-sophisticated battlesuits.
So I think I’ll have to just leave this laugh riot where it is, unless there ends up being some significant expressed interest in this community. Otherwise, I’m just going to let my imagination fill in what will happen in season two. I predict more hilarity, of course, and also I predict it’ll be revealed that Lulu and Suzaku just gunned eachother down at the end. Nunnally will, in turn, be revealed as NN, the third witch in the family that includes CC and VV. She’ll use her geass or her code or whatever it’s called to warp reality and put Kallen back at Ashford Academy with Shirley and the others like nothing ever happened. Season 2 will finally be the full-out high school comedy that we’ve been teased for so long. All the mechs will be parked in favor of storylines focusing entirely on relationships, volley ball games and studying for big exams.
There. I can walk away with a peaceful mind, now. Stay tuned for the next show!
