The End of Code Geass

The end of the second season of Code Geass, R2, generated a tremendous amount of controversy about the exact circumstances of the end. Koda from GG has written long rants and a commendable dissertation about whether or not Lelouch died at the end or, as has become popular, he is alive and well enough to drive a cart into exile with CC, the erstwhile witch. I’ll take a look at Koda’s arguments and just ramble on about my thoughts and questions. Read on!

Red Alert 3 – Thoughts

So after playing a few hours of Red Alert 3 (sampling the campaign, but mostly playing skirmishes against the AI) I have to vent a bit about the game. There’s a ton of good things (including the beautiful ex-Playboy playmate playing Tanya in the cutscenes), but some really clear faults that really need to be addressed for the game to reach its potential.

Clannad After Story OP

After watching the first episode of After Story, I can’t wait to blog it. I was particularly struck by the opening music and the video. Here’s a megaupload link to the download, and the youtube video of it!

Looking at the Fall Lineup

This fall brings quite a few shows that I’ll be following:

  • Clannad After Story
  • Akane Iro ni Somaru Saku
  • Hyakko
  • Toradora

I’m also waiting for the subs of a few other series before I render a verdict, namely:

  • Tales of the Abyss
  • To Aru Majutsu no Index
  • Chaos;Head
  • Kannagi
  • Kemeko DX

Frankly, loved the first episodes of the four listed above, so there’s a great chance I’ll be watching them. I’m starting this blog after the fact, so let me take a little time to catch up.

EDIT: All listed anime were very watchable; picked up.
