Ah, I thought so!

But yeah, poor ol' Kallen's had it pretty rough. And the animation does a great job at depicting emotional trauma and heartbreak (not just with Kallen)

Same here



Ah Lelouch the least you could have done was stayed alive and made it up to her. But I supposed that would have interfered with your "big" plan.

...lol, sorry, my memory must be going bad or something...I can't actually recall which episode those scenes come from, and it's kinda bothering me. Unless that's from the Zero: Requiem DVD's or something, 'cause I (still) haven't watched that. Somebody help me out here?

I know the 2nd one is from Turn 19. I'm not 100% on the first one though.

I understand and acknowledge Kallen's anguish in the Turn 2 flashback, but I just can't help but think of her processes going "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me! Augh!"*fleez*

Cuz of how Lelouch tricked her into believing he wasn't Zero, and then it was revealed that in fact, yes he was!

So uh... yeah.

*runz*

Lolwut?

Well, she was heartbroken, definitely. Damn you, Lelouch.

i have said it before you know
lelouch, through varius reasons any circomstances, makes her cry more times then any other character in the show
stage 25
turns 2, 7, 19, 21, 24, 25 (and in ep 22, she doesnt quite cry, but she looks pretty close to it)
only someone you love is able to hurt you so much

I'm sorry, but this is too hilarious to let slide.

Hear that folks? Kallen's not a character, she's just an excuse for plot and action.

Yeah, really.

I'm not going to argue that Code Geass had masterful characterization or that there weren't throwaway characters in the show, but going so far as to implicitly declare that anyone who isn't the protagonist or antagonist doesn't count as a "character" is really pushing things. It's a rather disdainful "all or nothing" approach.

Having an importance equal to Lelouch's or similar amounts of development isn't necessary at all.

yeah, seriously. Also, all backstories or even plots aside from the main one should be discarded, apparently, according to anon. I just... why do I even bother.

Hmm...then for some of you, to see Kallen victim of psychological torture can be a big wound.

Nobodyman9 reacted well, but the others ?

Very. I would stop watching the show right there and then if Suzaku injected Refrain into her.

Or wait until Suzaku dies.

And about something funny...Kallen breast continue to be the most mutant physical part of her body, never the same measure, more little, more big, more airbags....

The only sector where she has always the same breast size is in the toys line, thanks my "job" I seen all the products, always the same body and breast proportion.

The custom statue made by japanese maniacs are excluded from the list, they cut the heads and apply them on another dolls, they made "Luluko" thanks this brutal way.

Kallen's breasts are the bane of her character
they get too much attantion, and often make it harder to take her seriously as a character (especially when they keep changing size)
she's an amazing pilot
she's got an awesome hot blooded character
has complex emotional development
and yes, she's also got large breasts
so what ?
that doesnt automatically detract from her character

and it too often tends to lead (highly misguided or hostile) people to claim she's all about the fan service
which is annoying to no end, especially since a similer accusation can be leveled at just about every single female character in the show

and its not like she's got JUST the breasts
yes, she has large breasts, but she doesnt JUST have them
she's got awesome hair (i'm especially partial to redheads)
baby blue eyes
an athletic figure
an ass so awesome they had to design a mecha to showcase it
legs that go all the way to the floor
and in general looks...well
Spoiler for like this:


her breasts get way too much attention in my mind when compared to other things about her

Oh well, I draw her with a decent breast without to follow japanese fanservice delirium and I gave to her another important thing, the munscles, you can't justify a athletic and strong woman with a clamp-wire-body.
