Thanks, but the size of those pictures is a little too big without spoiler tags.

I'd rather wait for the complete episode rather than watching bits and pieces though.

Thanks gordol! But in hindsight that was probably the gist of the good stuff from that episode. Still though I want to see it in its entirety, sometimes the dialog can give away things about the upcoming episode.

Once again thanks, gordol, but let me chuckle for a moment.

Okay, now actually talking about the second episode of Akito..I liked it, though the source has some technical issues that got in the way of my full enjoyment.

What follows are only my own personal thoughts on a few things, currently without proper translations, so don't read too much into them yet:

Regarding Suzaku and Lelouch involvement in the EU front:

They're obviously there for 3 things:
-Geass related shenanigans, looking for C.C
-Control or destroy the Euro Britannia nobles, since they aren't that loyal to Charles
-At least control the territory where the Geass ruins are, so military success is needed

I don't see Suzaku killing the japanese cast, he's more likely to kill the other 3 Knight Order leaders since they are KOR level of skill.

Shin is going to be main cast's antagonist while Suzaku and Lelouch take care of the rest of both E.U and Euro Britannia.

The other OVAs will have the following factions battling each other:
-W0 Unit with their spy and Leila's Geass coming into the spotlight
-Rest of E.U army
-The 3 other Euro Britannia's Knight Orders under Verance
-Michael Knights under Shin trying to take over everything
-Suzaku and Lelouch tag team under direct Charles' orders

THIS GONNA BE GOOD!

Considering the things I pointed out and several others that I left unmentioned, I'd say the episode was actually quite interesting in my opinion, even without being able to discuss anything in great detail right now. That said, for the most part I didn't find it difficult to follow along and the action was very entertaining.

Multiple elements seem to be quite plot relevant and for me the underlying structure of the story has become clearer, but I suppose that's what the eye of the beholder is all about though. We all care about different stuff, and while I felt my attention didn't fade away at any moment, someone else might be bored. Can't help it.

I suppose the problem I find myself with Akito is that, for me it just hasn't had a moment that made me go... wow that was awesome, or something that was done in a way that felt different or fresh.

I think that's my underlining problem with Akito, it just feels like the things it does have been done too often in my eyes, or done better elsewhere. Nothing is original, but Akito feel's a bit too what a word for it... play's it safe. Though this all could change in the next two episodes.

As I have rated for the polls above, episode wasn't bad in my view, there are far worser anime out there, but it just didn't really entertain me in the way I wanted it to, which is a shame, as I was really looking forward to watching episode two, but as Kusaja says very well above, it will entertain some people for sure, while bore others, all depends on what your looking to get out of Akito.

@Black: That is the problem when you make something new from Code Geass - The Original is just simply too big, too good.

The fight scene was so like mmmmmeeeehhhh!!!???

probably cuz Iam use to seeing Suzaku's Lancelot raping knightmare frames....

Anyway isnt Lulu x Suzaku on the opposite team, unfair??
Those 2 cant be beat, but Lulu's geass is sealed so they might have a chance to win.....

Prediction Lulu x Suzaku will live and kill everyone except for Leila who will live to pass down the tale of what soon to be the rulers of the world.....
muhahahahaha

I'll just reiterate that the only possible way you can watch the episode right now, a technical issue results in bad frame rate.

If you check the various promotional videos or trailers, you'll see that the motion is actually faster and smoother.

I don't think its sealed. This feels like something that would fit in between S1 and S2 of CG. Since we all know Charles doesn't care what happens to the world rewriting Lelouch's personality to make him do everything for him fits the bill.

Spoiler for :


The delayed EP 2 talked more about Akito's past, but it didn't answer a lot of questions. Seems like Akito's geass functions in a similar manner to Suzakus. It had the mech fanservice and Leila fanservice. But the theatrical poster and showing preview scenes of C.C. were really misleading.

Unintentionally, especially since there's a man-made system involved, not just Akito's condition on its own.

Not particularly more than most other movie posters in my experience.

The preview might seem misleading or at least not very literal at this point, but things can always work out in the long run.

Why is that one girl's pilot suit some sort of combination of a Britannian pilot suit and that straightjacket design?

Does it have anything to do with this?

Coincidences aside, probably not...and it should be noted that everyone who is part of Akito's unit has the same type of pilot suit, even across gender lines.

I guess there is some sort of minor straightjacket theme in the design, vaguely comparable to what C.C. wore, but nobody is using Refrain.

They all became geass-driven suzakus... it was inevitable.
