Is Code Geass the pinnacle of humanity's creative achievement?
i'd say eva is tbh
The greatest television show, yes.
The greatest work of art, no. For one it's not a video game.
Code Geass is honestly my favorite creative work ever.
That might not make it the best, but it is absolutely my favorite.
Lelouch's character arc is one of the greatest ever written. Straight up
I rewatched it last weekend (seen it originally when aired), goddamn that flood of nostalgy and feels, my body wasn't prepared for this.
Is this one of those shows that are so bad its good or its so bad you watch it so you can make fun of it on /a/?
I had a normalfag friend in college who actually skipped parties because I showed him Code Geass and Death Note
he'd never watched anime before and asked me if there were any more like that
I said no, so he went back to being a normalfag
Death note is.
Code Geas season 2 kinda is too.
Lelouch is a poor man's Reinhard von Lohengramm
I got 99 problems but a gay brother ain't one.
You should have shown him Calvin Klein's Gate
no it's shit
Reinhard was definitely the best At getting sick and dying
But seriously speaking though, the only thing Reinhard ever seemed to do was delegate tasks to other people and go with their advice on every decision
If only Kircheis were here..
Code Geass is definitely the pinnacle of pure entertainment. There was not a single moment where I was not entertained and enjoying myself in some way or another.
yes, it is a proof of concept that with enough advances and mastery within a medium, there IS an objective bottom level, and that a point of "can't get worse" exists.
Force feeding your friends the blue pill to save them. I wish I had a friend like you.
>he'd never watched anime before and asked me if there were any more like that
>I said no, so he went back to being a normalfag
This could have been avoided if we entertained recommendation threads on /a/
No, Madoka was
bullet dodged, imagine if his normalfag friend ended up here begging for shows.
What if he did?
Let's name all of modern technology that Code Geass is better than. I'll start.
>open heart surgery
Then we'd have to talk about anime even more.
is this what you wanted?
Never expected this on /a/. Thought everyone here hated Code Geass.
My fav anime, I rewatch it every few months, it feels like a breath of fresh air.
>hating code geass
since when. its like universally acclaimed as one of the best shows ever produced. shame it never got a second season.
Code Geass needs a remake. The anime looks like absolute ass.
but it did anon
I'm curious what you think I should've recommended him.
He made it clear that he wasn't interested in getting into anime, just seeing more shows "like that" (which in itself isn't very clear, but it's what I had to work with).
You don't have to answer me if you think this is a thinly-veiled recommendation request, but you have me wondering what I should've said.
Lelough is alive
Lelouch is the cart driver
lies! filthy lies. they all lived happily ever after and no one died. no one!
The answer is obvious.
Is /a/ watching Akito the Exiled OVA 2?
If not, you should because he's alive
Oh, what. Me?
I don't know either.
That's why I'd prefer to have recommendation threads sometimes, but then the board gets overrun by them.
If only there was a good middleground.
the ova's are set before season 2
How's that a spoiler? Akito's set between R1 and R2.
>Implying Pico to Chico isn't overrated trash
Not that guy but Psycho Pass?
A good middle ground would be a thread to discuss what your favorite show is and why.
Too bad every time that thread gets made, everyone calls it a "thinly veiled rec thread" and sages it to oblivion.
Liar. That's Julius Kingsley.
This was in 2010, so neither Psychopass nor Kleins;Gate had aired.
But I wouldn't have rec'd him Kleins;gate even if it had aired--the beginning is too slow, and there's too many otacool jokes. Psychopass might've been possible, if I sold it as "The Minority Report" anime.
Apart from this little anime binge, he was an absolute normalfag. So the anime fandom didn't lose anything by losing him.
yes, it is.
>Is Code Geass the pinnacle of humanity's creative achievement?
I like Code Geass a lot, but nope.
It's just an entertaining show that made both the producers and the audience fairly content in the end. Everything else is debatable.
But anon, he should be alive. Code Geass Akito doesn't change anything about what happened to Lelouch in Zero Requiem. It takes place a year before all that.
That's just you disliking CLAMP. Code Geass looks fine if you aren't allergic to that.
I'd argue the opposite. It shows you can take something that seemed to be getting worse and make it much better.
And Reinhard is a poor man's Alexander the Great.
Honestly, Reinhard and Lelouch have very little in common other than belonging to an archetype which long predates either of them.
just dropping by to say I love Code Geass
Except you're wrong and it's the objective high point of the series.
That's not Evangelion
I have never watched this, should i get around to it?
Yes, as you should've realised from the discussion in this thread, it's the single greatest masterpiece in history.
thanks god it's not.
I haven't enjoyed a new anime as much as Code Geass, since Code Geass.
This was objectively the greatest filler episode ever made.
