Hmm, I see. Well, I have to say I feel relieved with that since while there were some loose ends that were not tied up, I felt it accomplished what it set out to do if not as well as it could have and that the open being left open is just fine.
And I suppose those small Picture Dramas could yield something as well since the novels and manga did not interest me.
About your question on the possibility of making more Code Geass for the sake of the market; don't count on it.
Unlike something like the My-Hime franchise, Code Geass is too close to the Gundam market to be of much benefit to Sunrise in the long run. They wouldn't get much new customers.
The Sunrise Executives never expected anything from it, and my expectations is that Code Geass will go the way of Nadesico and Vandread as series that "could" have a sequel, but no one bothered because it is too hard.
At most, the novels and manga will last a little while longer. And if you are lucky, there would be a few special ovas released like My-Otome did. But more full-length series wouldn't be made until the next time Sunrise run out of things to animate.
Do you mind if I ask you what the chances are of them doing some sort of continuation of Code Geass, as is currently being talked about? I don't feel that the things that were not tied up really need a whole movie or something to deal with them, but I'm not sure in the end. I'd like to think that they would just leave it open and I have noticed that pretty much all of Taniguchi's works were open to some degree in the end, but I can't help but think that Sunrise might try to capitalize on the popularity as much as possible. I apologize for bothering you in any case.
Well, I guess I can live with that. It's not like this is the first time Taniguchi has done an open ending where the choice is up to us either. In s-CRY-ed for instance, he said it was up to the viewer to choose who won that last fight. Thanks.
(Reply to what you asked me in my profile)
Sunrise didn't do much other than trying to have the cake and eat it too.
That's why Lulu may or may not be alive. They could have made it clear either way, but they chose not to.
Hi, I just wanted to say that I thought your comparisons with King Arthur and Seinfeld as well as your explanations on what exactly Lelouch accomplished were good and well thought out. So you really think that they do want to make it up to us then?
Um, I don't plan on going back there anytime soon. I don't want to risk getting any more crazy than I am.
I'm not sure what to think. I liked 15 and all that, but now that they restored her memories I have to wonder what the damn point of all that was. I'm also convinced she'll die saving Lelouch or something. Guildford and Nunnally's deaths were odd to me. Guildford never had any reunion with Cornelia and something just feels odd about Nunnally being dead like that. New Guren is way too powerful and I bet Lancelot is too. Gino might end up betraying Schneizal at least.
And I think my theories of Marianne being "evil" were right and I think now that the entire attack was a set-up for Lelouch to become something. I don't know what this means for C.C., but her chances already seem quite bad to me.
