Code Geass R2 14

17 07 2008

“Forgive me. This is my sin for letting you all run rampant. Therefore, the genealogy of Geass shall end here. That’s perhaps…Lelouch and my…”
-C.C.

A flashback of Marianne, C.C., Charles, and V.V. occurs. The two males talk of killing the gods and destroying the world’s lies.

Back in the building where Shirley died, Rolo boasts of killing her to protect Lelouch’s secret. Lelouch surprisingly thanks his fake brother and tells him he’ll annahilate the Order using the Black Knights.

Somewhere in a secret base in China, V.V. comments to an imprisoned Cornelia that the sibling relationship is the most beautiful one in the world.

A few hours after, Suzaku learns of Shirley’s death. The doctors believe that she committed suicide. Later, Suzaku, Gino, Anya, and the rest of the Ashford students attend Shirley’s funeral. Even Nina got depressed.

Inside her room, C.C. talks with her imaginary friend while eating pizza. Lelouch contacts her, telling her to deploy Team Zero and destroy the Order once and for all. C.C. tells him that the people working there are just researchers of Geass, but he won’t listen to her. He believes that by destroying the Order, he can atone for all of his sins.

Back in the Order’s secret base, Lelouch contacts V.V. via Jeremiah’s communications network. V.V.’s men deduce that Lelouch’s transmitting from Ashford, considering that the background’s that of his room. V.V. tells him that by the time he arrives at the Order’s base, they would’ve moved to their next location. Check. Black Knights’ knigtmares arrive inside the Order as Lelouch’s fake room collapses, revealing that he’s been standing before the base all the time. Chaos ensues as the Black Knights mercilessly slaughters the unarmed researchers. V.V. orders his men to move all the research data into the Eject Dart.

In Area 11, Nunnally and Kallen’s talk gets interrupted by an emo Suzaku. Suzaku tells Kallen that Lelouch made Shirley kill herself. He then shows a box of Refrain, which frightens Kallen. In other news, Bartley, one of Prince Clovis’ faithful men, finally dies. He regrets offering C.C. to His Majesty. In Ikaruga, Diethard tells Toudou, Li, and co. that Zero’s doing a covert operation. Diethard then tells Sayoko to shadow Ohgi since he’s been acting strange lately. Back in Area 11, Villetta tries to book a diplomatic flight.

In the Order’s base, a kid uses his geass to control one of the Black Knights. Rolo arrives and slashes them in cold blood. Siegfreid, the orange-top-sheped knightmare shows and brings the battle outside. Everyone gets pwned. Lelouch orders Rolo to get his unit on Seigfried because he has a plan. Lelouch reveals his plan of activating the bomb set on Rolo’s Vincent which will kill both Rolo and V.V., but before that happens, Cornelia aims a knightmare’s cannon at Seigfreid’s weak points. Lelouch obliterates Seigfreid once and for all while doing a combo attack with Cornelia.

C.C. destroys the Eject Dart and its passengers. A beaten V.V. crawls at the ground as Charles arrives through the gateway. Lelouch follows V.V. with his Shinkirou. A trap activates and Lelouch arrives into the Emperor’s weapon-that-can-kill-gods. Lelouch and and Emperor Charles finally face off.

****

This is a fast-paced episode with a few hints on the past of C.C., Emperor Charles, and V.V. The action finally picks up this time as Lelouch defeats one of the Big Bads of Code Geass.

Note: Sibling power. Lol, and I’m really surprised at Suzaku resorting to drugging Kallen. The horror! I was hoping that Rolo gets the end he deserves, but it seems he’ll have a few more episodes to live.

I’m still surprised Lelouch attacked the Order just after Shirley’s death. I hope the writers will continue this pace onwards.

“Lelou, you’ve been fighting all by yourself against this world so that’s why…I wanted…to become the one thing thruthful to you…I love you Lelou. Even when you killed my father…I couldn’t…bring myself to hate you. Even when you tried to make me forget everything…I still fell…in love with you again…Even when my memories were altered…I still fell in love again…No matter how many times I’m reborn…I’m sure I’ll…fall in love again with you again, Lelou…This…is fate, right? So, it’s okay, right, Lelou? That I fall in love with you when I’m reborn…No matter…how many times…I’ll fall…in love again…”
-Shirley Fenette

Shirley wakes up from a nightmare wherein every person takes off their masks and shows her their true selves. She then tells herself that Lelouch is Zero, the person who killed her father.

Lelouch leaves the Intelligence HQ in Ashford to check the status of Ikeburo. Before leaving, he tells Rolo he’ll help with his homework when he gets home. While in the train, Shirley remarks that everyone’s messed up. She doesn’t even know what’s true or false. In the train station, Lelouch supervises the geassed officers on his plan. In the other side of the building, Shirley bumps into Suzaku and tries fleeing, but the latter got hold of her. Lelouch arrives to see them. Apparently, the girl has called them both.

Back in Ashford, Orenji-kun defeats the geassed agents with ease and heads to Lelouch’s dormitory. Ninja-maid Sayoko faces Jeremiah, and gets surprised when she learns he has a robotic body. Rolo arrives as back-up and uses his geass. Jeremiah’s geass canceller takes care of that and Sayoko becomes a casualty. Viletta shows up and stops the fight. She tells Orange where Lelouch is.

Somewhere beneath an island, Bartley and Cornelia are strolling until big bad V.V. shows up. Cornelia throws dagger and kills the brat. V.V. regenerates to the surprise of Corneila.

On top of some building, Shirley cracks up and throws herself into the air. Luckily for her, Lelouch grabs her hand, and Suzaku grabs Lelouch’s leg. Fortunately for Lelouch, Suzaku’s a bastard athlete who can pull the duo up. Anyway, Shirley remarks after the incident that something like this has happened before. Hint: Arthur. Lelouch recieves a call from his agents and Shirley literally drags Suzaku with her to talk privately.

Lelouch activates the smoke system in the building once Jeremiah appears. Outside, Shirley asks Suzaku if he’s forgiven Lelouch already because she has. Moving on, Suzaku spearheads the police and the firemen when the building emits heavy smoke. He even orders the guards to protect Shirley, who gets away.

Orenji-kun catches up on Lelouch. The latter activates the Gefjun system hidden in the train compartment which disables Jeremiah’s sakuradite-powered body. Jeremiah, however, resists and keeps moving. Lelouch is astounded with Orenji’s loyalty to Britannia. Jeremiah asks him why he became Zero, and Lelouch replied he keywords: Nunnally and Marianne. Apparently, Jeremiah was one of Lelouch’s mom’s guards at the day of the incident. As a result of this, Jeremiah joins up with Lelouch’s band of rebels.

In the other part of the building, Rolo meets up with Shirley. The girl announces that she wants to help Lelouch and that she has regained her memory. Rolo get’s pissed when she tells him about Nunnally.

Lelouch sees the near-dead body of Shirley and tries using his geass to make her live. It doesn’t work anyway. Shirley finally confesses her troubles and love for Lelouch before dying.

****

This is a very heart-wrenching episode — NOT!!!

I’m not really a fan of the Lelouch x Shirley shipping if you all must know. And let’s face it: Shirley has her memories altered, regained some of them, altered again, and regained all in the end. If we continue this string of ludicrousness, we’ll have a ridiculous side plot continuing every time. It’s a brave move for the writers to kill Shirley. I mean, she won’t be of much use to Lelouch’s grand plan anyway.

ROFL at cyborg Orenji and ninja-maid Sayoko’s fight. The fans really got a hold of the writers’ necks on that one. Joking aside, Jeremiah becoming Lelouch’s ally came as a big surprise to me. If you weren’t, then most likely you’ve seen the picture books or major spoilers. Moving aside, Rolo’s a crazy bastard. Let’s hope he isn’t in the same room as Nunnally is. MAJOR LELOUCH CRY.

I really wish it won’t come to this, but I’ll be dropping Clannad as well. No offense, but now that I’ve got a mountain of school work, I can only blog Code Geass R2. Hope you all understand. And what’s with the pictures? I can’t seem to upload them properly.





Code Geass R2 12

6 07 2008

“I can’t believe that Sayoko came up with such a tough schedule for brother, who has no stamina at all. And they were all dates. She’ll destroy his life.”
-Rolo Lamperouge

This is a very hilarious episode, so forgive me if I’ll make a shorter Code Geass R2 summary. ^_^;

Lelouch learns that he’ll be dating 108 girls in Ashford because Sayoko posed as a very *cough* accomodating Lelouch. Oh, and there’s a six month wait list to boot. Shirley gets pissed in the bath when she learns of Lelouch’ date list.

The next day, Lelouch squeezes 3 girls on his “date” schedule before going to Shanghai to sign a trade agreement. Oh yeah. Later that night, Shirley’s guarding Lelouch’ dorm’s front steps. Lelouch sneaks like the rat he is until Anya confronts him with his young Britannian picture, which Lelouch replies that she’s mistaken since he’s just a commoner. Gino and Rivalz join the fray and assault him with questions about underground chess gambling. Lelouch’ rabid fangirls spot him, and, well, you know what happens. Dear brother Rolo comments that it’s Sayoko’s fault since Onii-chan has no stamina at all. Shirley shoves Lelouch and asks an explenation for skipping their date. Lelouch tries bribing her with a dress before Milly shows up and announces “Cupid’s Day.” The game rules: The boys will wear a blue heart-shaped hat and the girls a pink one. The person who exchanges hats and puts them on will be forced to become a couple under Milly’s executive orders.

In Britannia, the Emperor’s brats are planning to invade China. The Knight of One, Bismarck reports everything to His Majesty. In some island’s secret base, Cornelia is seen slashing cult people.

Back in Area 11, Britannian HQ, Suzaku tells Gino that he won’t be able to go to Milly’s ceremony. Guilford instructs Suzaku to call Milly later since his present status as Nunnally’s advisor won’t last forever. Speaking of Nunnally, Area 11’s governor visits Kallen.

Back in the underground HQ in Ashford, Lelouch decides that his girl problems will end with Cupid’s day. He even considers having Viletta to take his hat but the latter rejects the idea. Also, as a side note, Lelouch doesn’t want to involve Shirley. Suzaku finally calls Milly before she begins the event. The three primary tagets by the school: wimpy Lelouch, manly Gino, and loli Anya. Milly pulls another trick from her sleeve by informing everyone that whoever grabs Lelouch’ hat and brings it to her will have their club budget increased tenfold. Now, Lelouch’ has fanboys to boot.

Rolo activates a school-wide geass to hide Lelouch in a closet. Somewhere, Cornelia points her sword at Bartley’s back. The latter asks the former to help them since the Emperor’s planning to use them for whatever sadistic plan he has. Gino playfully runs around the campus as three girls chase him. Miya steals Lelouch’ hat, but he uses his geass to get it back. Seriously, this geass type is very useful. Lelouch then exchanges places with Sayoko.

Sayoko runs amok, being chased around by the rugby team, chemistry club, fantasy seduction team (oho, now they know Lelouch is gay), and practically everyone. Rivalz even considers offering his best friend, Lulu, to get her heart. Even crazier, Anya uses Mordred to search for Lulu. Everyone in Area 11’s Britannian base panic when they learn this, thinking that the Black Knights have returned.

Anya spots Lulu and Shirley in the library and stretches Mordred’s hand. The real Lelouch saves Shirley as the fake one escapes. Viletta orders Anya not to use Mordred since it’s forbidden. Enter a dramatic moment for the Lelouch x Shirley pairing where they eventually replace hats.

Gino tells the police that these things happen in a commoner’s school. Milly informs them that she was getting impatient with Lulu and Shirley so she hatched this insane game. After her graduation, she becomes a weather woman. Lloyd’s proud of his ex-fiancee. Orenji-kun/ badass Jeremiah, uses his Geass Canceller to spot Lelouch but fails. Unfortunately, Shirley’s inside the Geass’ territory so as a result, she remembers the death of her father in the hands of Zero aka Lelouch.

****

Wacky episode. Oh, and the summary’s not that short. Sayoko’s a sadist, both mentally and physically. No sane person will have that cramped schedule. The emperor’s wacked up genes shows on his children. Tsk. I like Cornelia’s new ‘do. Lelouch’ is planning to steal Anya’s loli heart. Nuuuuuuu! And due to Orenji-kun’s Geass Canceller, Shirley remembers that Lelouch is Zero, AGAIN.
