You're preaching to the choir, man :P.

Anyways, I'm not really clear on the whole "pureblood" concept... I mean, you have Jeremiah, who is fanatically loyal to his commoner Queen/former Knight of Round with his blacker than black assistant Viletta, out on a racist crusade to purge foreign blood from the Britannian military.

I mean yeah, the Nazis teamed up with the Japanese in WW2, so I guess racism doesn't always have to make sense, but...

... I guess it has to do with being born on Britannian soil rather than descent? I guess then Rai would qualify :P.

Uhhh.... If that is the requirement, then wouldn't all Numbers be considered 'Britannians' too? The colonies are conquered Areas, they belong to Britannia. Therefore are legally Britannian property and soil. I don't think being born on 'Motherland' soil changes any of that either.

Race is different from nationality and citizenship. Characters can be white, black or mixed race and still be Britannian. That doesn't seem to be an obstacle.

The main type of discrimination seems to be between Britannians and non-Britannians, not between all of the world's different races as such.

But at no point did the show state that the citizens of conquered territories automatically become Britannians, at least not in the short term. After all, there would be no need for a category like "honorary Britannian" if the process of incorporating foreign nationals from conquered areas was automatic.

In the case of Villetta, we don't know much about her past...but if her family is Britannian, I suppose that's what actually matters.

Ahh, thanks for clearing that up Xander. You are better at this then me. Sorry for the trouble?

The Geass route thing makes me wonder though... what would happen if your mixed blood were found out in any of the Britannian storylines.
Intrigue? They could easily conduct Rai as a member of the royal family and use him as a figurehead, leaking the information of him being a half-blood wouldn't be all that beneficial unless in certain situations.

Or they could just interrogate or kill Rai and any other accomplices that were hiding his bloodline. I don't think that'd be an easily explainable scenario.

I was thinking of something more along the lines of acceptance or lack thereof.

It seems like it'd be a situation of "double the racism, double the fun". Although I guess not everyone is racist on either side.

--- edit ---

After playing through yet again *free time reaching critical mass since the Call of Duty Black Ops beta got taken down due to Jtaggers sneaking in* I have determined that the "mysterious voice" is in fact C.C.- at least as far as I can tell.

Note that I am NOT referring to the one that belongs to the person who gave you geass: As far as I can tell that is an unidentified male who does not appear to be in the credits (at least, the specific Kanji used to indicate he is speaking are not used in the credits that play after Suzaku's ending, as far as I could see).

So it seems its C.C. talking to you during the Ashford Academy and Blue Moon routes (when you are in your room), in the former she speaks psychically and in the latter she speaks in person.

I'm still not quite sure what to make of Lelouch's Ashford Academy ending though...

Here is a drawing of Rai x Nunnally vs Brother-in-law Lelouch lol.

The game was very succesful in Japan, the only reason there isn`t an english version os because at the time not many ebglish people knew about the anime. Although if enough people show how much it`d be worth to they`ll probably re-publish it in english, it`s happened before, just look at Persona 4 Golden.

...Or maybe because we don't release DS visual novels here? And Code Geass really isn't much of a 'thing' here? There are a lot of anime themed games that never are released over here, especially with big anime franchises.

You would think they'd want to make more off the franchise and offer the game to the west. Especially now seeing how well Akito is doing, and delaying part 2 until August!
Once again Bandai and Sunrise have missed the boat.

I'd have to agree with Scherzo09 in this case. The simple truth is visual novels and/or dating sims based on anime properties are rarely, if ever, officially localized.

Something like this though is tailored specifically for Japanese audiences. It's not just that the anime community here is niche, there also isn't that great of a delivery system either, and America has always been, at best, peripheral to Anime companies. That's partly why Bandai pulled out to begin with. They don't want to go through the trouble of spending all the ad money and such to potentially create a culture that would like their product, and even then most would consider it a weird Japanese thing.

Not to mention the PS2 is dead and out of production entirely, and the PSP is really not that popular in the west (to the point where they opted not to release a Final Fantasy game because they thought it wouldn't sell)

hey I thought I let you know this if you don't know already but someone has created a translation patch for lost colors (still beta at the moment) that translates the Japanese into English which is great as it would be nice to go through all the routes knowing what's being said

here's the link on youtube

Well, that's a little complicated. Yes, there is a romance aspect to the game (it's especially strong in the Ashford Route), but the main point is the "story" and interacting with it. Not all of the endings have gushing romance, like C.C.'s, where it's more of a "strong bond" than full out love. Still, there are many heartwarming moments in the game, and some nice romantic endings as well. (Though, if you're expecting a "harem ending", then you'll be disappointed. This isn't that kind of game.)

Well, it depends on the route you choose in the first place. (Note that one or two character endings may be from missing this list, since I haven't completely checked through every possible ending yet. It's not likely, though, since this is taken both from my own experience with the game and what I've gleaned from various sources online.) Also, please note that the endings with "male characters" aren't romantic, but rather an indication of strong friendship/camaderie. (Though, I'm sure plenty of people with "that" kind of interest read what they want into that... And the Blue Moon route does cut it a bit close at times...)

-Geass Route (Nunnally, C.C. and Lelouch Endings)

-Black Knights Route (Kallen, Zero and Diethard Endings)

-Britannian Army Route (Suzaku, Lloyd, Euphy, Nonette, Villeta and Jeremiah)

-Ashford Route (Lelouch, Nunnally, Milly, Shirley, and Suzaku)

Extra Routes:

-PSP-only: Japanese Liberation Front Route (Kallen, Kaguya, Chiba and Tohdoh)

-PS2-only: Blue Moon Route (C.C., Lelouch, Nunnally, Kallen, Milly, Shirley, Rivalz, Kaguya, and Euphie)

After you get into a specific route, I suggest you just focus on scenes with the character you wish to pursue and make choices you think will lead towards that ending.
