Oh c'mon, comedy is essential in any anime. The red fiasco was just hilarious in my book

Surely there's an ignore function on AS? Use it and stop sulking because someone isn't praising the thing you love.

My lack of humour (or, put better, me being hard to please) and desire not to see fan service lower the standard allow me to view the series as it is, meaning my views are usually on the money. I'm also not one who gets carried away and lets bias blind him; unlike yourself.

I'll leave it here since this is pathetic. Just know that no amount of bitching will prevent me from being honest - You'll be wasting your time if you think acting like a baby will change anything.

Maes Hughes, there are a lot of anime out there where fan service is much more intrusive than it is in Code Geass, even in this current episode. Chalk it up to cultural difference. You just have to live with it Apart from taking up a bit of screen time, it doesn't really get in the way of the episode itself.

Well, I found it funny up until Gino came and took her away, after that I found it superfluous.

Well i would give this ep a full 10 if the ep had a purpose of showing the emotional relation of lulu feeling the some chars but i did not get that vibe what i mean with this is that some of the people memory's had been erased to not have suspicion on lulu etc. SO if they wanted to make it really deep and show the tension even better that should have brought up more

Stretch5920 you have a valid point on that and i agree. At the same i think this pace is also what keeps the show going and up. Cuz its like tak tak tak tak instead of bla bla bla bla

Why is it so easy for these kind of misunderstandings and such to always happen? I sometimes wish we all actually could get along, but I guess that isn't possible.

I have to agree that while Lelouch did make some gains in certain aspects that kept this episode somewhat relevant to the plot, the large majority of fanservice was unneeded and a waste of time considering what needs to be taken care of in 20 more episodes.

Why don't you take the time and reflect on that yourself hmm? I'm just annoyed you came up with such personal bullshit I really didn't need to read and neither does anyone else

If you were actually any good in your reviews then you could peer underneath all the fanservice, but I guess that tells us how in depth you can actually judge a series on. Before you should complain about the series maybe you should think about fixing your own ability to perceive next time. In any case, my personal opinion on your personal opinion, you don't like it then just leave already

Yah yah, and no amount of bitching is going to really change the episode or convince others who did like it. Your wasting everyone else's time if you think whining like a little brat will change anything either, your just being freaking annoying all around. Worm

Now let's just calm down and knock it off with the intense arguing, shall we?

Yes, I have seen some of Ikki Tousen.

I didn't mind it as much during S1 since it was less in your face. In S2 there's been Kallen fan service in every episode so far AND fan service for other characters... It's as if Sunrise are throwing more in out of desperation for ratings.

In all honesty Kallen is hot, but that doesn't mean I want to see more of her boobs and less of her personality during the actual episodes. The same goes for the other characters.

I'm the sort of person who loved Death Note for being realistic and not throwing around fan service and comedy to improve ratings. While I understand Code Geass is different I would like to see less stupidity and not more as it goes on.

wow

Its just a show damn people should make a show and the time needed to create it then talk.

Damn the plot more kallen xP. Kallen pawned Viletta. next Kallen gonna pawn Suzaku

@Maes Hughes I like death note too except the ending. Kira was sort of like a religion to me xD. BUt geass aint death note i mean look at the drawning and the mecha's i mean :S. Your asking something like

i wish people In gundam seed had brains
I wish naruto went evil
I wish claymore didnt have violence
I wish geass did not have fan service and comedy

that aint never gonna fly.

I for one also dont get like how the fuck someone who wants to destroy brittania is studying at a brittania school without going nuts and be buddy with and save their asses too. Thats like totally retarded and well i accepted that fact cuz otherwise i would go nuts so i get wher eyou coming from but its no.

The ending of the episode was somewhat expected for me, since I read some tidbits about it some time ago. I was still surprised and had to LOL at the randomness/ownage of the scene.

Spoiler for LOL:


Anyways, I found the rest of the episode to be very good. Comedy is definitely one of my favorite anime genres, and C.G. makes good humorous moments; The fanservice isn't THAT bad. The only thing I found akward about the episode was the jumping from scene to scene, but it was still executed well imo.

Oh for pete's sake, just learn to laugh and shrug it off people, plot developments will come when they come, which looks to be soon. I take fan-service as it is, not try to make it out like its the center of everything. There has been plenty of other stuff besides just that, so I don't see why people tend to exaggerate about it, Episode 5 was meant to mostly be humorous and I went in expecting that for the most part, with some nice twists thrown into the mix as well. It's all about ones own mindset really

It's true that the amount of fanservice in season 1 seemed less in your face as you said. I've become annoyed with how they have put it in every episode and managed to have some sort of Kallen fanservice in a lot of the episodes.

DN was made to be that sort of show. There really wasn't much opportunity for fanservice.

Some fanservice in DN though, especially that scene with L and Light that I really did not need to hear the yaoi fans scream about all the moment. But meh, I shrugged it off, if you like that type of stuff then fine, if you don't then brush it off and focus on what you do like. Fanservice is meant to be a garnish, you shouldn't let that rule the whole series, and if you think the producers are doing that then just ignore and interpret it the way you want too. It's about changing what you can versus constantly complaining about what you can't

Well, that was rather subtle while CG is rather obvious in that regard. As long as fanservice doesn't keep coming stronger and stronger, which I fear it will, I think I'll be fine. I'm reminded of some recent shows with that seemed to have potential, but were drowned in ridiculous fanservice.

Isn't this new 5pm slot meant to be more family-friendly, anyway? Somehow I don't understand why the pantsu is increasing in recent episodes.

It'll only drown it if you let it drown it Dann, Code Geass still has a lot to offer besides just that and being able to discern from it and the unimportant points makes you capable viewer. It will only matter if you let it matter is all I'm saying >_>

Still 20 episodes to go I guess. I just think there are better things to spend the time we have with episodes than on fanservices.

She's been withholding a lot from Lelouch ever since the start, so it's no surprise. But she's a hypocrite too, since she basically involved him already when she contracted him. At least she's a bit more forthcoming now.
