Code Geass 2nd season will be airing as part of the anime lineup in spring, which means April. That’s right folks it’s almost time to get mesmerized under the influence of Lelouch’s Geass once again. We have another 4 months to wait before we’ll get to see what happens after both Lelouch and Suzaku fired at each other at the very end of the first season.
“Wait for us… We’re coming back…”
The first season left the series at a serious cliffhanger and after Euphie’s blood-filled episode I had almost no hope left for a happy ending to the series. Right near the end of the first season we had many new revelations – a hint of what really happened to Lelouch’s mother, the unseen person C.C. is always speaking to, and apparently everything that has been going on was part of the Britannian Emperor’s plan? And just who is V.V.?
One thing I noticed about the final 2 episodes was that Sunrise suddenly switched and presented the Britannian forces as the good versus the evil Black Knights. It was interesting how they could suddenly have the viewers feels more empathic towards Britannia since the whole series had built upon the fact that Britannia had oppressed the Japanese and they were fighting to regain their freedom and independence once more.
But perhaps the empathy does not lie with Britannia, but those who were fighting the war at the moment. Euphemia’s death was probably the tipping point that helped identify with Cornelia’s struggles.
Britannia vs Black Knights
In between the two forces at war right now, I can no longer decide who I should be rooting for. Both parties aren’t exactly righteous and deserves to win, but I also can’t bear to see everyone wasted. Everything that Lelouch had built up is crumbling fast and the Britannians aren’t exactly in any good shape either even if they continue their current pace and wins.
“Bow to me!”
Only one man seems to stand at the top of it all, the one who is, at the moment, the most likely victor regardless of what happens. Lelouch’s #1 enemy, the Emperor of Britannia.
