Episode 4 of Code Geass R2 got one of the lowest rating ever for the time it was aired, 1.4%.
Japan haet geass
same shit as season 1 just with even more faggotry.
wait... what? that ep was fucking awesome.
No, Anon. You are the trolls.
It got worse ratings last season. I wonder what Gundam 00 will get when it moves into that slot.
No link = troll.
If you don't post source in 30 seconds this will be reported.
If you don't delete your post, I'll report you.
Yeah, well I'll deport you to Mootxico! Oh, what now?
Please don't, mister! I...I'll do anything you want...ok?

Lol no. It was three times as popular as GL in terms of viewers when it aired.
Because according to the unwritten rules of 4chon, if it's written in moonrunes, it's 100% factual, amirite?
You can't lie in Japanese. It's like those fantasy "ancient languages" that speak only facts of the universe.
Blood+ is pretty mediocre but its still 100 times better than Geass in terms of being a legitimate series
It's not surprise. Code Geass is starting to lose its appeal.
>1 5.4%, 2 4.1%; 3 4.0%; 4 4.2%
Geass season 1 had shit ratings. It was typical late night 1.5% or so ratings
Code Geass R2 is a huge bomb ratings wise
R2 is also fucking horrible quality wise
If you want a link in english.
Season 2 is a huge disapointment, not surprising nobody watches it.
elevens hate losing
But Seed Destiny was still popular in spite of being even shittier than the first. Does this mean the audience this year is getting more discerning or just more ADD?
Legitimate? They are both really stupid but at least Code Geass is somewhat entertaining.
Just mean that only Code Geass fans watch it, not kids.
Blood+ at least has legitimate themes, morals and a purpose within the story its telling and the characters its setting up. It didnt succeed in doing it in an excellent manner, but the makers at least had integrity.
Code Geass is just trash that has no other aim than to suck money out of moron fangirls and to deliver a rotten story with rotten characters.
That still seems odd to me...I guess the Jesus Yamato substitute just wasn't enough.
Having themes is one thing, being fucking boring is another.
Blood+ was shit, nobody care about the themes or the "message" it wanted to deliver if it couldn't even manage to somewhat entertain the viewers.
The execution is the most important thing, Code Geass is shit, but it's entertaining shit.
Its still rotten shit
I will give much more credit to a series that at least attempts good things rather than to a series that takes the facile route and has no integrity whatsoever.
Geass always got shitty ratings, as do most animu since normal people don't want the shit.
Geass always seemed like a series that makes its success through DVD and merchandise sales rather than high ratings.
Code Geass was made by marketing people. The whole series is based on demographic analysis and popularity polls, even the writing, which perfectly explains why it is so terrible.
It is a simple minded soap opera, but horribly melodramatic about everything, there is fanservice for everyone, lots of lolis, tits, and bishounen, hinted incest and faggotry. There are mechas, and the show pretends to be intelligent. It's an amalgamation of whatever has been popular in the recent time, and obviously, it works out - at least among their target demographic - yaoi fangirls and retards, i.e. the same people who already bought the Gundam Seed Destiny DVDs.
I don't give credits, it entertains me or it doesn't.
Blood+ failed in that area, if you want to deliver an interesting message you should be well executed.
Geass's ratings are shit, but Sunday 5 is a pretty shit slot for afternoon time as well. It should be higher, but who cares.
GEASS IS THE FIRST SHOW THAT WENT FROM LATE-NIGHT TO AFTERNOON FOR ITS SEQUEL. I think that itself warrants how popular it is.
the only animes with good ratings are kids shows and long running cult series.
And NoitaminA shows.
Regardless. If you're entertained by Code Geass, you have bad taste anyways.
it isn't popular, there are like 4 animes who are really popular, the rest is just Otaku or kids stuff.
Geass ratings are pretty decent in Kansai, really. It's just Kanto ratings that sucked balls.
If Geass got into doroku, it would be averaging 4~5 as well.
Sunday 5 is generally known the times when teenagers in Japan are OUT OF THE HOUSE, shopping and what not.
am I the only one who actually loev blood+?
Among otakus, dur. Geass is never going to be at Gundam/Doraemon/Sazae-san level ever, but for a show Bandai/Sunrise expected to FLOP, it's selling pretty darn well.
Broadcasters probably care. They used Geass to try to get new Nichigo timeslot to do decent numbers, at least somewhat like Doroku , but it didn't seem to work. Macross F is getting the same ratings at like 2am in the morning. It's going to be bad to shove Gundam 00 in that time slot it it doesn't grow some.
The problem with Code Geass is that it's just good, not great.
I don't understand why the hell they're so afraid of MAJOR. Sure, it's probably half the reason ratings no longer go above 6%, but that's no reason to drop down to a slot where 60% of normal teenagers aren't at home. Afternoon slot shows are supposed to appeal to 'normal' viewers as well, not just otakus.
Perhaps the same could be said of all anime.
Code Geass R2
those are really shit ratings for a late afternoon show.....
But it's not good, it's bottom of the barrel trash
Code Geass is the best anime ever you faggots !
Your opinion is not Japan's. Nor the 50,000+ buyers of the Geass DVDs.
Gundam Seed Destiny sold 60,000+ units per DVD
that must mean its amazing
Lucky Star also sold 30,000+ units per DVD.
It must also be incredible
Them fighting words. I don't watch Code Geass but would you be so kind to say why this series is trash? I'm very interested in a concise argument for pasta purposes.
And Naruto got 6.1% so high ratings mean a show is good right?
look how stupid you are
Of any mecha-related anime will always suck. ALWAYS.
Because they were losing against Major and the cost to keep airing in Doroku is too much for the shitty ratings they were getting. I doubt Sunrise cares about ratings too much. They are still going to sell tons of dvds.
I've never seen so many trolls in one thread.
In before "newfag alert" "lurk moar" etc
Only otakus and kids watch anime in Japan.
The same holds for any countries.
Oh god, you made me realize this is true.
Even episode 4 of fucking LoGH.
You shut your whore mouth.
It's a show that's success was never based around ratings and it's in a shit timeslot, big deal.
>Your opinion is not the opinion of yaoi fangirls and greasy Otakus who are the 50,000+ buyers of the Geass DVDs.
This means nothing for Geass, but it does create a rather awkward situation for Gundam 00
I like Code Geass because it has clever writing like Death Note.
What is major, doroku, sunrise, etc? Are those timeslots or tv stations?
Code Geass has gotten to the point where it's too popular. People will force themselves to believe that's a bad show when they know it's not, just to justify hating it.
It's only going to get worse as its popular spreads in the US from airing on Adult Swim.
I didn't even know it was on adult swim, but then again I never watch their shit.
Geass sucks because it's a bad show, not because it's popular.
"Doroku" = 6:00pm Saturday timeslot on MBS/TBS, previously a high rating and very successful slow. Home to Gundam Seed, Fullmetal Alchemist and Gundam Seed Destiny, then trainwrecked by a trio of badly performing shows (Blood+, Ayakashi Ayashi, Terra-E). In it's more recent times, the anime series Major has been airing in that timeslot in an opposing channel and dragging down the ratings of both.
Explain why you think it's a bad show.
Actually I don't really give a shit about ratings in japan anymore, at least when it comes to judge the quality of a show. Those faggots over there managed to get Ayakashi Ayashi and Kekkaishi discontinued due to lacking ratings, which is all I need to know to realize how shitty Japan's average viewers' tastes are.
It is terrible.
Stop trying to justify to yourself that its hated because its popular
Its the same shit as Gundam Seed Destiny. Just as shitty and just as popular. It's flat out bad.
>>11282976 sore loser
Look at Sunday, and take note of how much anime airs outside of the 7:00-10:00 kids anime block.
Nigga best be joking.
>Its the same shit as Gundam Seed Destiny
Try watching it.
Its the same shit. Badly written. Hateful characters. Awful fangirl pandering etc.
You can like it if you want, but you have bad taste, thats all there is to it.
THEY'RE MAKING ANOTHER IKKITOUSEN!?!?!?!
Suzaku is a shit character created for fangirls to fawn over, well then again so are all the characters, who is supposed to be a 'villain' we can sorta identify with but he just comes off like a childish hypocrite. It's even worse now that he's helping the people who enslaved his race enslave other countries.
Lelouch is a shit character because he doesn't use his power intelligently even though he's SUPER HAXX CHESS GENIUS.
The rest of the characters were made from demographic data and polling rather than from trying to make a cohesive story/universe.
The rewritten history is laughable [Ben Franklin betrayed his country for power and riches and enabled an even more oppressive regime to take hold, Napoleon didn't use New France as a base for conquering Britannia when he could've wiped them out completely and that was the plan all along, tons of other crap].
The characters are crap, the setting is crap, Spinzaku having haxx is crap. It's just a shit show.
Oh lawd. I can't help but laugh at those who think CG is exactly like Gundam. I assume they think that because the show has mechs. CG isn't the type of show you watch for mech battles, it's the type of show you watch for just as planned.
Faggot better not be hating on my Suzaku. I dream every night of having a threesome with Suzaku and Lelouch. We would be best friends forever.
We would live on the outskirts of Tokyo in a big white house. Every morning we'd go horseback riding together. Then we back to the ranch for lunch and play mahjong. Next we'll have tea with Nunally. She's such a little trooper. I hope she gets some magic legs one day.
In the evenings after dinner we'd play XBOX together. I bet Suzaku is really good at Halo since he's such an awesome pilot of the Lancelot. Lelouch probably wouldn't be very good though, he'd probably be better at mahjong.
Finally at night we would make sweet love to each other. I'd fuck Suzaku up the ass while fellating Lelouch. Then we'd switch and I'd fuck Lelouch while sucking off Suzaku. We'd go to bed around midnight so that we can be up the next day for our promenade a cheval.
>>11283073 THEY'RE MAKING ANOTHER IKKITOUSEN!?!?!?!
anime is not as popular in japan as you weeaboos think.
Why do they air so much shit at like 3am when nobody is awake
>Lelouch is a shit character because he doesn't use his power intelligently
it really must burn you up that it's one of the most well regarded, popular and successful shows of the decade.
If Spice and Wolf does not get another season.......
My face when reading this thread.
Because anime shit in timeslots when people were actually awake would have everybody that isn't an enormous otaku shut in changing the channel
There'll be a second season of Manabi Straight before there they make more of that furry curry.
Sounds like you just don't really understand it. Which I don't blame you. It's the type of show you really have to sit down and pay attention to.
'I have the power to make anybody do what I command them to do but instead of telling them to follow all of my future commands I tell them to do one thing at a time after which they are useless to me so I kill them.'
Lulu would be better if he knew how to properly use sleeper agents.
He doesnt have to cry. He can just laugh at your lack of utter taste.
Enjoy your farce of a series.
code geass is deep
So I see at least 3 threads about this. Keep dreaming, it's not going to be canned.
you are a fucking idiot. Lelouch would have easily won by now if he used his power effectively.
Yea, fuck this. I think I'm gonna drop off of /a/ and read some Jojo scans for now.
Daytime /a/ is here. Are you ready faggots?
And from the looks of things, I'm going to have to get drunk to stand it this time.
The people he's up against are never in in position to be geassed. Are you talking about using it on his knights to make them more obedient? That would be a waste since they're already following his orders.
WE CAN'T DISCUSS ANIME HERE!!!!! THIS IS FAG COUNTRY!!!!!
Let me see... let me see..
1) People are noly looking at the 'Kids' demographics.
2) People are only looking at the 'Kantou' demographics.
Among the real target demographic, 20-34, Geass is getting much better ratings.

Contrary to popular belief if you kill the president you do not automatically become the president.
I normally stay away from alcohol, but I think I'm gonna agree this time.
You will be with proper capitalization and punctuation.
of course the ratings for geass suck. Everyone realised that it's just repeating the events of season 1.
>Everyone realised that it's just repeating the events of season 1.
You mean I'm not the only one who realized that? Fuckkkk
>Among the real target demographic, 20-34,
Lulu likes being a general. He wants people to follow his orders on their own. Except for a few exceptions, he doesn't force people to work for him. It would be just plain evil to geass a bunch of innocent people to increase his army.
He's killed like "4" presidents now.
One of them was only a halfer, but still.
They seem me trolling, they hatin.
Different anon here. Why not Geass the president to become your sock puppet?
Oh wait, my mom was mysteriously killed, MUST AVENGE.
You said yourselves more than once that Japan has shit taste.
So the shittier the show, the higher the ratings.
BAWW why won't my pedo shows get better ratings
Britannia isn't a democracy it's a monarchy. He could easily kill the emperor and usurp power himself in a coup d'etat.
Best thread we've had on daytime since, like, forever.

He doesn't want to be in the shadow working to destroy Britannia from the inside, he want to use Japan and completely destroy Britannia from the "outside".
And do what? He wants to kill the fucking emperor not control him.
Tell him to kill himself like he's done with a bunch of other characters?
Yeah coz a teenage prince could easily kill all the other royalty who want the throne.
lol golgo13 in front of geass, hard to believe

Aside from killing the emperor he wants to make a world for Nunaly to live in (no matter how corny that is) so just killing one person does nothing.
Kind of hard when he can't get to them. lulz why don't I drive up to his house and geass him.
A sock puppet would be an easier target to attack. It would be like a strawman in an argument.
You could still be the general of the revolutionary forces and with the power of Geass make it easier to win via controlling the heads of the Empire.
Mecha show, Spring 2008
2.6% Macross FRONTIER Vs 1.4% Code Geass R2
Because everyone and their mom can just come and see the emperor face to face. He did the best he could. He built a army and a legion of almost fanatic followers.
macross should have better ratings than geass. It's a much better show.
Macross is a kids' show. Code Geass is for fujoshi fangirls.
So? This isn't a fucking Macross vs CG thread.
Which is where his power comes into play. Get your self into Britannia and slowly build up your army by controlling the general populace and especially the military. Get yourself some high ranking people with access to the emperor and take him out with a sniper or something.
My mom faked her own death for the lulz. My sister is perfectly fine, she just doesn’t want to walk or open her eyes. My dad told me to shut the fuck up and grow up.
…BAAAAWWWW FUCK YOU! YOU’RE GOING TO BE SORRY, JUST YOU WAIT! RAGE!!!!
You seem to fail at reading comprehension.
>> He built a army and a legion of almost fanatic followers
A legion that can be Geassed
>>He did the best he could
No he didn't.
Too bad Naruto is better than both Macross and CG COMBINED
No, it's really not.
Hate to be the black sheep, but Macross F has so far been, at best, decent.
The plot is recycled hero's journey crap.
The only original character is the protagonist.
It's just one big generic shit fest.
But it's decent because the animation is stellar.
Hits close to home?
Lelouch always seemed like a whiny child.
Macross F, if nothing else, is a cookie to all the Macross fans. And it's doing a pretty good job of it
for all it's faults it's still a much better show than code geass
I'm sorry this is just to fucking stupid speculation. We don't know if any of this is true.
Yea I agree that's sort of a nice "easter egg" type thing to the fans.
But it still seems like the second worst Macross so far. 7 being the worst.
>>11283457 But it still seems like the second worst Macross so far. 7 being the worst.
Why hello there Captain Tasteless.
MacrossF has a shit story. LOL space monsters. But it has superb animation and fights. Thats the only reason to watch it and Klan Klein.
You think 7 is good? YOU'RE the tasteless one.
you forget Zero
isn't lelouch like the most popular character ever or something?
I liked Zero.
Nah thats Sasuke.
Of 2007 or something like that. I don't think of all time.
Did you even watch the first season?
Macross 7 was retarded, but I did enjoy the hell out of it.
Macross has always been retarded one way or another.
WHERE THE FUCK IN THE FIRST SEASON DOES IT SAY HIS MOM FAKED HER DEATH OR THAT NUNALY IS NOT A CRIPPLE. THATS JUST FUCKING SPECULATION.
It took the song thing too fucking far. Way too fucking far.
Oh god I hate 7.
try opening your eyes and ears faggot.
Macross Frontier is a lot better than Geass.
(Better main character, girls, animation, music...)
Truth. Seriously, from SDF (UNCULTURED GIANT WARMONGERS ATTACK EARTH) to Plus (pop-idol-hologram-HAL-wannabee attempts to take over) the whole concept is pretty retarded.
Still I do enjoy it for what it is. It's good fun.
Fuck yeah!!! A POP SONG saves the universe! Best animu ever.
Yea but Geass has giant machines snowboarding over other giant machines. And ridiculous plots like something from Mazinger or Pinky and the Brain, except that they work out and Lelouch laughs hysterically.
You can't rate Code Geass on a simple animation/plot/story/characters/audio basis.
As i said its fucking speculation. Even if it ends that way Lelouch has no way of knowing what really happened. So to him his mother was killed and his sister is a cripple.
Geass is fantastic. It's just so...hilarious. I'm sure you can see some good themes and DEEP messages in there, but really it's much more fun and worthwhile taking the piss out of it.
It is pretty shitty, but I think its shittiness is also what makes me enjoy it so much.
Where else can you see people doing 100000spins/s in the air before kicking someone?
People running and jumping off walls?
Giant Pizzas being flipped by giant robots?
No where. There are enough pseudo intellectual animu out there.
Code Geass is just fun.
I like CG because it's pure, mindless entertainment and my guilty pleasure. But I hate the hype around it created by 14 year olds who actually think it's deep and meaningful. Seriously, the plot is laughable, and so are the characters, but hey, it's entertaining.
at the very fucking least Lelouch KNOWS:
1. His sister's problems are mental, not physical.
2. His mom arranged for her own death.
I was entertained well enough by Code Geass. I'm about to watch season 2, what should I expect?
It's like having anal sex with the girl of your dreams.
Spinzaku and Lulu hax. Also Kallen is a bunny.
I watch Code Geass for the complex plot, mecha action & hot babes. Pic very related.
As good as it is, high chance to end up with shit?
Suzaku hax from episode 2 onwards. He does a 720 spin in the air, kicks Lulu, and lands on his crotch.
protip: japs are superstitious about the number 4 because it sounds like their word for death.
>protip: Japanese people are fucking stupid
Have you not seen some of their holidays? Like where they all run around naked slapping each other?
Or the penis festival where everyone chases after the naked guy trying to touch his penis. And they sell penis shaped food. And there is a penis shrine.
and Koreans believe that if you leave a fan on while you are sleeping you will die of either hypothermia, asphyxiation, or you will somehow magically be sucked into it and turned into sliced meats.
what is your point?
Where is this? DO WANT.
I don't know.
Asian people are stupid.
And Americans voted for Bush 2 times in a row.
Why does this post make me hungry
best holiday ever.
SHITSTORM!!! SHITSTORM!! SHITSTORM!! IT'S AAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWIIIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!
at least the 4 thing has a parallel in the US with 13.
Saerch "Penis Festival" on google images.
Kanokon is a saturday morning cartoon.
Look at all the WoW fags unleashed upon the Internets because of Tuesday maintainance.
You guys have any homework or assignments due?
I didn't like it very much either. But it'll jump next episode when Suzuka gb2/school/.
Huh? Dude go back to /v/.
>>11284016 Kanokon is a saturday morning cartoon.
It's probably scheduled around the time it's intended audience are going to bed.
so im in the minority hey...
Lets face it everyone is watching code geass because they wanna see Suzaku die
Cept those couple of faggots that keep lurking here
>everyone is watching code geass because they wanna see Suzaku win
Except Lelouch is going to be the one to die. Enjoy your swimming lessons.
Ah speak of the devil
