Okay, the translation of chapter 7 of the Oz photo story has been completed! Not much new information in this one, besides a minor mention about Euro Britannia and a little insight into some of Orpheus' piloting skills. Please go check it out.

This months HJ

HJ買ってきた

話としてはいつもの短編的なもので、特にこれと言って触れる部分も少ない
強いて言えば、今回の任務はベルリンからKMF工学の若き天才少女(脚が義肢)をラクシャータの所へ送り届 ける事と、
今回の敵はユーロ・ブリタニア軍(アキトに出たキャラはいない模様)ぐらいか


looks like more crossover between OZ and Akito

Basically, it says this:

-The mission this time is to escort a young genius female KMF engineer (who has artificial limbs) from Berlin to where Rakshata is.

-The enemies this time are the Euro Britannia army.

Yes, the model preorder is open on big in japan.

About the picture drama, you can download it entirely on torrent, but like I written before, is a useless and silly stuff.

I downloaded the first two tankobon of code geass OZ, well....a pure license exploitation and a total out-of-the-world story.

In the summary they made a complete connection with R1 events, but after....what the hell is this story?

First of all, the britannian now are the main characters, but they're all good people.

Second, they're 100% japanese in everything, are the japanese writers return back to the dark ages?

I've only read the summaries provided by Eternal Dreamer, but I don't think it's all that different from the typical Gundam side story. Not to mention that they still have an unknown amount of time to wrap things up, so to speak, before the events of the second anime season come to pass, which may or may not resolve whatever issues you find to be questionable.

Quote:

I definitely don't think that's a bad thing, actually.

Did you expect all of them to be evil? I'd say it would be more problematic.

Quote:

I believe you've previously made this same observation about the rest of the series, no? To some extent that's inevitable, since the writer is Japanese after all. It's not exactly a surprising development that the mindset of these writers would tend to reflect their own culture. I consider that to be normal in anime and manga.

Well, depend by point of view, in the past japan anime wasn't so obsessive about their tradition or lifestyle.

Code geass story was in Japan......but OZ is totally in another place, Europe and India, and western characters, (excluding a couple of them in two entire tankobon) then the japan "influence" is very out of place this time.

If in the first serie they designed all the britannian (army side) like evil and racist, and only Gino can be put in the good side (nonette isn't present then not counted), a story where birtannian soldiers are all good is a paradox.

I'd actually wonder about that. I would say they have simply done the same thing in different ways.

Well, aside from the above reply, perhaps we should keep in mind that even the so-called "Japanese" attitudes aren't inherently unknown in other cultures, although they might be emphasized more or less depending on the individual and his or her surrounding context.

It's a matter of perspective. I think your recollection is incomplete and somewhat inaccurate, but the main counter-argument would be that even racist individuals aren't necessarily evil all the time. Especially not if the new story is told from the point of view of Britannians with a personality who aren't being treated as faceless obstacles in Lelouch's path.

Besides...the first series, as you mentioned, took place in Japan. It's not too difficult to believe that permanent occupation forces would be worse, comparatively speaking, than a new unit that seems to consist of relatively inexperienced youths. I also don't get the impression they're going around denouncing racism and saving the Japanese or anything like that, so it d doesn't come across as a true contradiction. If they are simply being shown as sympathetic characters, I have no issues with that.

Also, Xander, since you mentioned only having read the summaries, you can read full translations of the photo story chapters on my website ozthephotostory.yolasite.com, in case you didn't know.

Edit: Oops, you were referring to the manga, right? Sorry, never mind then, Xander.

That's Ze's Glasgow, the one he's always piloted until now. This is just the first time it appears in the photo story images.

Personally, I like the more down to Earth, stronger Worldbuilding approach Akito is taking. I know a lot of people like the Narm Charm of the original but I like that it's going for a more Military Sci-Fi/Science Fantasy angle.

I've kinda given up hope that Geass will ever have a coherent canon; it's whole Alternate History angle is a bit of a mess (albeit an interesting one). Akito actually contradicts the Britannian Dating scheme with the new French Revolutionary Dating scheme, it should be 173 but it's stated as 228, which is assuming the show took place in A.D. 2017, not A.T.B. 2017. I do really like though how Akito really leverages the AH angle, whereas in the original it felt completely superfluous; Britannia could've been Nazis or Zekes or Space Aliens and it wouldn't have made a difference.

NTA読んだ。
オズはジノとアーニャとだべった後、敵チームの昔話をはさんで試合開始。
オルドリン、ソキア、マリーベル、マリーカ、トトでチームを組んでるよ。
アキトの小説はほぼ反逆のルルーシュでのブリタニア進行による日本占領の話。
藤堂さんが割とメイン。

1:トリスタンのあの頭部デザインはジノの趣味(競技用kmfには装飾過多なデザインが多く、それに影響を 受けて)
2:それをある意味薦めたのがレオンハルト(半ば投げやり的なニュアンスで)
3:レオンハルトの実家の企業は裏切り者を出した不始末で解体されたが、ジノ直属の研究開発チー ムに再編
4:ソキア及び相手チームのメンバーは孤児
5:オデュッセウスは裏社会出身の人間にも特赦を与える「臣民更生プログラム」を皇歴2011年時点で認可 した
6:オルフェウス編の小説も収録(内容は白炎vs紅蓮壱式の再録)

Alright, here's this month's Oz manga chapter summary:

Spoiler for Oz Manga Ch 9 Summary (Extended):


Spoiler for Oz Manga Ch 10 Summary:


Also, here's the translation of the spoilers provided by gordol, though honestly the Japanese text was really shorthanded and vague this time, so some of this is rough on my part.

Quote:
After Gino and Anya appear, the legend of the enemy team is brought up and the match begins.
A team is formed with Oldrin, Sokia, Marrybell, Marika and Toto.
Akito's story brings up talk of the Japanese Occupation due to Britannian advancement that occurred a little before Lelouch of the Rebellion. (TL Note: I'm really unsure of this sentence, so much that I'm pretty much guessing to what it means because of its vague and unclear structure.)
Tohdoh-san is relatively the main topic.

1. Designing the head of the Tristan is Gino's hobby. (Many match-use KMFs use excessively ornamental designs, and he was affected by it.)
2. Leonhardt advises that there is a certain meaning in it. (Half with a careless nuance to his words.)
3. The company belonging to Leonhardt's parents was dissolved due to the failure of having a traitor come out from them, but was reorganized as a research and development team under Gino's direct supervision.
4. Sokia and the members of the enemy team are orphans.
5. Odysseus approved in the year 2011 a.t.b. the formation of the "National Rehabilitation Program", which gives amnesty to people from the underworld of society as well.
6. The Orpheus Side story is also brought up. (Referring to the battle between the Byakuen and the Guren Mk-I.)

I've finished my translation of chapter 8 of the Oz photo story! It's a pretty basic plot as usual, though the ending this time is particularly gruesome, even if it's not described in that many words.
