One of the biggest debates of the fan-sub era was the final fate of Code Geass’ Lelouch Lamperouge. Did he actually die at the end of the series? Had he been given the code to immortality from his father? Was he that mysterious figure driving the cart in the final scene? It took almost a decade to get the answer to that, and a few years back we did. Was it worth the wait? Well after the cut let’s take a dive into Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection and find out!Read More »
The 2000s had many extremely good anime series and will remain a pivotal moment in the history of the Anime fandom. There are many reasons for this, most notable being the beginning and end of the ‘fansub’ era that is pretty much responsible for keeping anime interest alive in the West.
One such show was Code Geass Lelouch of the Revolution, which to many was a keystone part of anime during this decade. With designs by the legendary CLAMP and a story of betrayal, politics, pizza, and giant robots. Code Geass was very well received by fans and remains a cornerstone of the genre. Even if it was pretty much Death Note with robots.
And now we are getting a new entry, with a movie sequel to the movie re-tellings of the original series, titled simple Lelouch of the Re;ssurection. My thoughts are after the cut.
