The only other warp-face I could envision beating Nina's grimace in terms of ugliness and medical impossibility would be Djibril's when he got DRAGOONed in GSD...

And even then, he had Rey's help...

This episode sounds made of hot blood and cheese. So long as Euphemia didn't give Suzaku the "OH BY THE WAY I'M PREGNANT" cliche, whereby context demands one need substitute [i'm pregnant] with [Zero is Lelouch], everything sounds fine.

And a haha, oh wow @ androgyny. Those blasted "delicious shotas" (?) are dangerous to the West; they've been confusing people's sexuality since 1989.

I wonder how Yotsuba will react to a real child actor (male?) voicing V.V; an hero rates will most likely increase from guilt. ?_?;;

Nevertheless, I think the FO spoilers for this week should be more tasty than the episode.

I've actually lost interest in this series. First they say that there's going to be another season. Then they don't even conclude the first one properly ... is this some sort of promotional trick? I'm pretty sure it is, but it's still irritating even if you do know. But when it starts to air once more in constant stream, I'll definitely be there. A lot of things are done well in an anime whenever I can spend a night sleepless just by marathoning its episodes.

I doubt it has to do with promotion, though it's possible. But it's not all bad news. The anime slated to take this time slot from next week onwards, Darker than Black, looks promising.

No.
It's because they made the 8.5 and 17.5, the recap episodes as a result of being behind on the schedule,
they weren't able to secure the airing slot for the last two episodes.
So it's due to bad scheduling of the staff, not due to some conspiracy to boost public interest.

You may want to lay off on the conspiracy theory books.

Well, they did air two recap episodes after all, and that's probably the most direct cause of the schedule slip, as far as I know.

EDIT: Beaten to the punch. >_<

One of my friends said his roomate dropped the show after hearing about the second season; frankly, I'd always thought an anime was done long in advance of its airing, but from Fake Okouchi's updates it sounds like Geass didn't go "just as planned" and was being worked on in the latter stages even during the airing, which doesn't sound right. Maybe he was just trying to emphasize that Sunrise does hard work...

Regardless, Geass still is a high quality anime with a simply stunning main character, but it does suffer from pacing problems, trivial focus, outrageous improbability (beyond suspension of disbelief for anyone with a modicum of imagination) and every god-dang cliche the director/writer master handbook to make Geass an "all-purpose, cross-genre legendary anime of all time".

It's still a decent show, but only as low-brow entertainment; as far as a serious critique of "T" or "J", I doubt we'll ever see anything of that like. At least the sense of "epicness" has returned a bit.

My sister's losing interest in the series because of the crazy plot twists they throw at you from absolutely nowhere. Like when I told her about crazy!Euphie, instead of being excited to see the episode like I was, she just complained about how nothing makes sense. She'd rather the plot were more predictable and realistic, rather than trying its hardest to take the viewers by surprise with whatever they can think up to increase the action and drama.

imo they it was about how the anime would be accepted. If the first 2 season wouldn't be recevied well there'd be no point in making more. So why bother planning 30 eps ahead when you don't even know if it'll be liked or not.

True, so true with Sunrise. They can change a storyscript fast if they want it.
Best point for it, is MyHime. When some "Syncroniser" exploit the last scene in this series. And Sunrise, put all force into it, to change this part. And in the end, it was "crappy".... Some ex-MyHime fan knows what im talking... you know..... the reset....

They don't put the storylines in stone. They can change them if they want it (or the Sponsors begin to mess up.See some uroto...)... thats Sunrise for ya...

You'd be surprised how ugly a face pretty people can make.
Here's a list of beautiful models making ugly faces.
Spoiler for for ugliness:

patience, young Padawan.... Japan/Nippon is for Europe (Germany) 9 Hours ahead in Time.. and put 7Hours more on it, then you have US Westcoast time....

And you have to think, on the Fans to record the show, Coding it into a PC Codec. Uploading it into the knowing sources... and btw, they surely have a Job, too.

raw is there, when its Online!!

Internet, let the world gets smaller and all Nations is around the corner.... But, Internet dont change our RL Timebasis....

I will NOT ask you where you found this, how you came across it, whether you were looking for it in the first place, how did you remember it or why did you save it on your HD.

This episode appears to be awesome, I can't wait to watch the raw, which can't come out fast enough!

Anyways, I'm not a big fan of Euphie but it sucks to see her die because of the circumstances surrounding the whole tragedy...
