The Ending I Want for Code Geass, Which is Not SDS’s Ending At All

I am in full support of SDS’s fervent wishes and hopes for the resolution of Code Geass R2, but, sadly, despite the fact that Odysseus u Britannia is a manly man (for only a true manly man would unhesitatingly agree to a marraige between a 30-something male and a twelve-year-old) who most certainly would enjoy the finer pleasures of hot cocoa and a rousing game of Parcheesi (or maybe backgammon, or cribbage, or, heaven forfend, pinochle), perhaps followed by some interesting discussion on the finer points of silverware, over getting it on with his lawfully wedded underage imperial puppet, it will probably not happen.

As wonderful as it may be to see Odysseus take his rightful place on the throne of Britannia (it would certainly be a better thing for the Code Geass world, or at least for Parcheesi lovers in the Code Geass world), that, sadly, does not seem to fit in the wild, wacky, frequently nonsensical, and oftentimes deliciously illogical world of Code Geass.

This, however, will fit in quite nicely with the rest of the series:



See, she kills Charles di Britannia after he kills Lelouch, because there’s no way Shirley would actually be able to do anything bad to her beloved Lelou, but if he were conveniently killed just as she stumbled out of her grave (Charles and Lelouch were fighting over Shirley’s grave, which, of course, was transported via helicopter to that ominous island at the end of episode 19 before their final duel so that, should he lose, Lelouch would be able to rest next to his one true love, Shirley, and they would be able to rest in peace together as they never could in life. A noble goal indeed, if you ask me) then she would most certainly be quite upset indeed at whoever did the killing, and, being a zombie, she could most easily overpower anything Charles could throw at her because, well, she’s a zombie. Charles is immortal, but Shirley is the living dead. Key difference there.

After killing Charles, of course, she eats his brain (well, she is a zombie) and inherits the right to rule Britannia, which instantly makes everyone in the world capitulate to her banner, making  her the de facto ruler of the world. She then proceeds to…do nothing, because that’s what she’s always done, and been loved for it,  but that’s okay, because after she ascends to the throne the world is in permanent peace for the rest of eternity. Everyone eats pizza.

Mark my words. I can read Taniguchi Goro’s mind from across the ocean. And I’ve never been wrong.

    You’ve been having too much brain lately.

    I like that you’re in the spirit of things. And you didn’t forget the sponsors.

    Did you read the supposed interview with Goro about how he’s unhappy with things?

    @issa-sa: I thought so, too. Brain is a perfectly fine meal, except when it’s your own.
    @otou-san: Actually, I did see that, and I almost wanted to comment on it here, but I decided that I’d rather not get too terribly hardcore into a fanboy mud-slinging festival. It’s kind of sad that Sunrise put Goro through that (not once, but twice–the timeslots went the other way the first time around, which had a similar effect on the first season), but I think he and the staff should be commended for making the best out of a bad situation. I hope he doesn’t carry through with his threat to leave the anime industry, though. :(

    that would be a shame for sure. He is, at the very least, a personality, and there aren’t that many of those in the biz.

    OGT: That threat was old and made a long time ago, so I’d hope his involvement in another upcoming show (not as director but as Creative Producer, I think) would be a sign that he’s gotten over it.

I cannot understand those that take anime seriously, but I can love them, and I do. Out of my love I warn them to keep clear of this blog.
