Ep 14

Damn, that was arguably the best episode in this series to date. Great character development, background, etc, etc. Even the antagonists got a good deal of characterization. Although, while I certainly dug the massive amount of character development they gave to Yin (who has always been one of the most intriguing recurring characters), I didn't like the fact that nothing has really advanced due to that plot-wise, and we're pretty much back to where we were before the arc began, with the obvious exception that we now know a lot more about Yin. Oh well... can't have cake and etc, etc.

At least now Yin may open up a bit more --- and hopefully be apart of the story a lot more. Also, i thought we'd find out how Yin became a Doll, and when ---- or that could just be a story for another day.

I love how Berta had a huge part in this arc. Her backstory was not only interesting, it worked along side Yin's story perfectly. Sliver light was beautiful~

& yeah, my avatar.. couldn't help myself.

I love the pianopart...

This episode moved me by it's character development, poetry and soundtrack...it was so beautifull when you saw all characters thinking and moving slowly in the rain. This series is becoming more and more beautifull...though it's storyline is slow.

Does anybody know what the title is of the pianopiece in the episode 13 and 14 played by Yin? I'm trying to play it aswell but a good reference would help me greatly.

(ps: her smile was the cutest i've ever seen ;D )

On a side note, that musical piece playing during Amber's power activation till it's finish was immensely beautiful. It fit with the mood so ambivalently soothing, even with the tension in the air.

And Hei, how could you do that? I thought you were James Bond Black?

Spoiler:


Great episode, though the Maki parts annoyed me a little. :3

@aohige, you mean the 2 minutes 30 seconds BIGLOBE stream one?

I haven't seen the Biglobe's one, but this one wasn't 2:30min long.
It played after the ending credits and next episode preview of DtB, only like 30 sec long, on MBS channel.

oh hell!! Mao..cough.. Maki dies! sigh..

C.C...cough Amber is freaking awesome T_T. They also gave us some clues on what her price is. May be its her age? Every time she uses it, she grew younger? (that's why she in the past looks older). woot woot woot~ (now she is officially too awesome with 'THE WORLD", she will die later in the series for sure, lame..)

My friend who just watched this with me said that he's starting to feel like this is an alternate, less cheesy fun Code Geass where Contractors = Geass user, Hei = Lelouch in 8 years time, Amber = C.C and Pai = Nunally, what's with the characterization he's getting from the cast.

@_@

I think after watching episode 16, people will finally start shutting it about C.C. 'Cause Amber seemed like the farthest one could possibly be from that character.

Just as others, I really liked this episodes, although there was a major inconsistency that bothered me a little.

Spoiler for Maki:


As for the rest, yeah, really awesome stuff.

Spoiler for general thoughts:


PS: Next episode preview has Eureka. Well, almost. And some gaijin rockers. Also, was it just me, or was Huang
Spoiler:


PPS: Oh, and... poor Mao. The cat gets no respect!

@_@

Code Black or Darker then Geass

Here is my attempt to hammer both series together.

Amber is C.C. and the world of Darker then Black is the past of Code Geass. The world of Code Geass is the world after the Gates.
