I just got done watching all of that today. It was a pretty fun ride. Kagari deserved a better ending then being offed and swept under the rug.

Kougami please go.
Shougo killed as much people as Lelouch but everyone seems to love the latter.

S2 when?

Because Lelouch had a legitimate motivation for fighting, not some 2deep4u shit.

Sure, Shougo's end goal was 'good'. But his reason for wanting this goal was absolutely fucking retarded. He hates the solitude that comes from not being able to be judged by the system? Wow, okay. Maybe if they actually expanded on this and gave us an actual reason to even care about this faggot instead of just

>the system is bad.
>shougo fight to beat system. but use evil!!!
>u shuld be sad when he die :(

Because it just doesn't work that way. You can't make up some completely bullshit reasoning to make a villain seem sympathetic. An actual good example of an anti-villain is Squealer from SSY; the things he does are horrible, but his end goal is understandable, and his motivation to reach that end goal is sympathetic. Shougo on the other hand does horrible things, his end goal is understandable, but his motivation to reach that end goal is absolutely retarded and felt like it was written by a edgy 13 year old. Seeing as Shougo also liked to quote random literature to make him seem smart, he actually probably was written by a 13 year old.

Lelouch wanted to fight solely out of vengeance and spite for royal family. Nunally was never in danger until he started pulling his Zero shit and he knew she doesn't approve of his ways of doing things. Lelouch also purged whole armies, after enslaving them with Geass while Shougo killed a few random unlucky civilians.

>An actual good example of an anti-villain is Squealer from SSY
He's a filthy rat scum and also his name is Yakomaru.

I have absolutely no fucking idea why they resigned from using that ingenious smooth transition to ending sequence and just made it normal after ep 11.

So? It is still a legitimate motivation. It doesn't really matter if it isn't the 'good' thing to do, it is still a motivation that the audience can sympathize with. We can obviously see how britannia is corrupt, and how Charles was a douche. We saw his mother's murder and his sister being crippled. We have full reason to root for him because we can at least somewhat sympathize with what he is doing. So although he murders, we can understand why he does it.

Shougo has a completely retarded motivation, something that isn't sympathizeable in the slightest. Now this isn't really required, seeing as he IS a villain, but the problem is that they try to portray him as someone we should at least care slightly about. Sure we understand that Sibyl is shit and that taking it down is good, but when the guy murders and does horrible stuff to take it down, all because 'he hates the solitude the system brings him', it is just a sign that he is a retarded character.

>>102273709
You seem to forget that he also hated that people were Sibyl puppets and their lack of decisions and whole lives were absolutely meaningless.

Smooth transitions are really useful when you want to make a scene have more impact and weight. If you use smooth transitions too much it loses its power
>>
>>102274022
They were used in all (?) episodes prior to ep 12 and they all had quite an impact.
After ep 11 they were used like 2 or 3 times and it barely made an impression on me, especially that it was supposed to be the series conclusion. Maybe I just didn't like the song as much.
>>
>>102274113
They could use the first ED so much because it was really upbeat and got you hyped which fit a lot of the first episodes because they were world building a buildup. The second ED was sadder and more quiet so they could only use it when it transitioned from a powerful sad scene.
