Nah it's done similar to Kekkaishi (also by Sunrise) and Yatterman 2008.

Well, Yukana was using the exact same tones in the game, and the game was out almost a year before the first Code Geass series iirc, so I don't think that she's sounding like C.C on purpose. (chronologically speaking it should be C.C that sounds like Tear! XD) On the other side though this show being sponsored by Pizza Hut isn't helping much

C.C voice carries an arrogant tone to it than Tear's so there is a difference albeit slightly.

Unless she addresses Luke as 'boy', it's not a complete transition from CC.

Of course, that still doesn't stop him from becoming fujoshi fodder. Namco can be pretty smart sometimes.
To be fair, some of his future speeches on/to Luke is just perfect fodder for fujoshis to go wild.

Spoiler for a wee bit:


Abyss is widely accepted as a great RPG with solid character development and plot, but those same reasons are also why it's considered to have a most flawed and unlikable cast of party members. I personally don't get that though. Flawed characters, one way or another are just so much more emotionally immersing as opposed to cookie-cutter cool guys.

Abyss's appeal doesn't really start until they start throwing out every expected generic JRPG twist straight on your face.

Or Jade. And cheagles. (( the only thing Sunrise's design does better than Fujishima. ))

Oh my gosh I just watched the raw and the animation was stunning! Is the sub out yet?

Anyways I like how fast paced the first episode was, it looks like it's off to a good start, and it has some pretty fine action. I'm so excited to see them fight the god generals!!!

The only gripes I have is that Guy looks like a little boy (And I'm way too used to his English dub), and Tear looks kinda bad, but I think that should improve....I hope.

The animation felt like a typical cut scene from the Tales series, extended version!

More impression

That's what I exactly meant about Namco being smart. They know how to appeal to certain audiences. They were practically baiting fujoshis with a character like Guy.

If anything, it's CC who sounds kind of like Tear. Tales of the Abyss came out first, but I suspect that some newcomers are more familiar with Code Geass.

Cheagles. Blerg, I hadn't realized there was a two episode special today. Saturdays are crowded enough as it is. I'd honestly prefer a rebroadcast of episode 2 next week to move the primary back to Fridays.

*sigh*

Tiresomely crowded... Almost forgot Kyouran came today...
At least Jigoku Shojo airs at... No, that's a bit bad too, considering the time it airs requires an early early waking to watch...
But at least Kannagi and Toaru Majutsu no Index, best two anime this season for me, are airing in one day...

Tired...

Is this only for the 1st week or can we expect more 2 episodes per week from this other station? That can really spoil us, you know.

I doubt it

They probably did it because it was the series premiere.

Anyone know if the plot is going to be good?
Maybe the game's good,

but these tales of xxx series on anime just can't catch my interest at all.

If it's going to follow the game's plot, it should be good.
I noticed a few similarities in the Series OP and the game OP.
