    Yo man, thought I'd check to see if you were doing okay what with how crazy things have been recently. Send my a ping however here or through email and just let me if you're doing alright and staying safe

    Hey again Dann, sorry I haven't done any follow up, things got a bit hectic the last month and they'll continue to be so for the following week so thanks for the patience regarding my response. Planning for a last minute vacation invite next month so I needed to take care of a lot of outlying business beforehand. In the meantime though I did want to ask if you've heard of this new game called Greedfall that's coming out tomorrow. I'm really liking what I see from it thus far, it captures a lot of the old school dragon age feel despite being from a smaller studio and it's a fantasy steam age type of setting with actual gunpowder weapons going against mystical creatures though, which you don't get a lot of in video games. Let me know your impressions once you've had a chance to check it out for yourself, and look forward to my full response soon, got a lot to catch up on.

    Yo, sorry I've been out of it, didn't notice you'd replied until last week. This weeks a little bit busy so mind hanging tight until next? Got a lot to talk about, between the last anime season, the future seasons, recent games, and all the events going on in Japan right now (Best of wishes to KyoAni and hope they manage to comeback from this...)

    No no no, I will not accept this now that the 10 year plan is out, now is the perfect time to reexamine each of the characters as they reinvent themselves, maybe visit places from C.C's past and get a better picture of everything, but I will seriously lead a fan revolt if this question isn't answered at some point over the course of the plan, I'm telling you Dann! That wasn't my impression C.C said Charles and probably Marianne since she appeared in the black pearl too, were acting as a wedge of some kind. Shamna based on what she said was primarily just trying to tap into C.C's world to expand her Geass power and basically rewrite history so I don't feel there was a direct link to her activities and what was happening with Charles and Marianne etc, so there's still hope. With Zilkhstan subdued we'll need more antagonists in the end for the future Dann, and Charles and Marianne would be perfect IMO as an overarching threat compared to starting from scratch again, it'll mean more and given the setup of Lelouch and C.C. investigating geass stuff it's pretty much perfect for them to remain as long running antagonists. If we're honest they didn't even appear that often in the series proper I will remind you, with maybe 2 episode of actual villany from Charles as an opponent and 1 for Marianne upon her return, so there's still plenty of juice there to squeeze I feel.

    I wouldn't mind one of two segments like that, the anime devoted a few episodes to such excursions after all. Don't know about an IGPX like transition though, long running fans are kind of used to the violence, conflict, and drama aspect so it might be too much to make a total shift there, but it might be nice to have it in some cases/form, who really knows though.

    Yeah I saw the cam version recently. You might be right about the wording but reading through each line gave me some clarity, though not nearly enough. I think I read the home release by Funimation will be out some time later this year, how soon that is is still up for debate so we'll see.

    Yeah, that was intriguing though it sounded a lot like how Tatsuya's restoration power from Irregular of Magic Highschool works. I mean, it SHOULD still work since it getting back in order should just make it work as it did before compared to how C.C. drew on a remnant of it. Makes sense, but I still felt that meant she somehow got a Code to merge with her Geass given the new way it worked where she was effectively immortal still, but that's currently speculation on my part, and because she only died once her soul was trapped in C's world after Sharlio was killed as she wanted to wait for him before passing on. Meh, I always figured that part was because Akito's brother got it from a weird skull, suggesting he tapped directly into C's world for his Geass but that's just me. C's World is still just a confusing mess in general that NEEDS more exploration and explanation, I mean I'm still not sure wth saved Lelouch and Nunally at the end in their, who was he talking to, the collective unconcious bailing him out again like in ep 21/movie 3? I don't know cause they don't explain nearly enough once again! <_<

    That was mostly her shirt just getting in the way and weird animation I thought, the mark was still clearly there when he came back and after he used his Geass still, he just zipped up the front I figured. Oh that, that's happened where the Geass was used before a command was actually given and I thought it was mostly to showcase how Shamna (who kept her eyes closed throughout the revelation of Lelouch's Geass) looked into the reflection of the pool and only THEN got hit with the rings/Geass because she didn't realize Lelouch could reflect his Geass off a mirror surface.

    Oh yeah, Kallen Sayako Lloyd and Suzaku would have definitely already known about C.C considering Kallen hung out and learned the entire truth from her during the year long intermission and the latter 3 all worked for Lelouch and had encounters with Geass prior to then so that wasn't a big deal for me. I mean, Lelouch WAS wandering around with C.C as well while they were looking for code ruins so it's not unlikely that there were some sightings of him here or there that might have led to said rumors reaching Cornelia beforehand as well. Again, this all goes back to the time constraints and trying to finish so much after barely establishing the premise in the first half <_< Ah well, can always hope for those conversations and reunions in the future project, now the Lelouch is back hopefully they'll be more opportunities to incorporate such scenes between him, Kallen, the rest of the Student Council etc.

    Exactly! The character's actually could have been interesting and had deep backstory based on the premise as both a country and remnant of the order, given the type of depth R2/movie II and III missed out on. Wouldn't be surprised about that Dann, the whole alternative timeline thing was established even before now with the Nightmare of Nunnally manga after all <_< That was nice I guess, didn't really matter or make a difference in the end since Shirley was again off to the side once again... They had the opportunity though, and I'm starting to get really ticked off by all the teasing they keep doing about C's World and Geass stuff but never do any real follow-up or cut it short, if you're going to start something you should go all the way already... <_<

    Okkaayy, wish they'd explained that more in the actual movie but good to know and I'm interested in seeing what they both discover now about said fragments and what it means for them to appear in our world etc. I know that, I just hope they adapted the Oz story better. The premise of Oz was fine in certain respects but there were some serious plotholes, like justifying Kewel's sister surviving that somehow, why Schnizel didn't hold onto all the Knights of the Round instead of just Anya if they went to get his and Nunally's blessing first before their suicide attack, or how Lelouch would EVER give the Damocles key to his sociopath half sister given the truth of the Zero Requiem etc. Serious plot hole that should be swept aside in this new canon setting and not following the manga step by step, I'm telling you <_<

    That bit about C.C. dying isn't likely given she still retains her immortality currently, and I think if she dies then Lelouch dies again, they won't/can't leave each other alone and they're in this together for the long haul it seems as the ending of Resurrection ultimately showed. They'll be fine in the end, I have a good feeling about it

    Yo, sorry for the late response, thought I should wait until after I see the Code Geass movie today to respond. I assume you did as well by now, any thoughts? Turns out you were right as they were only showing on those particular days and I only got tickets for the dub, the early afternoon showings for the Japanese version just weren't as convenient for me I'm afraid. That said I plan to watch the sub release whenever that comes out on DVD/Blu-ray later this year, I feel like a lot of stuff especially about World of C and Geass stuff might have gotten lost in the translation.

    If you didn't see the dub version I'll clarify there wasn't a LOT of explanation regarding how this combo of Code and Geass actually worked between Lelouch and Shamna (blonde lady) that was spoiled before, especially in the case of the latter who didn't even seem to acknowledge it in the dub at least. Given how her Geass worked though it seemed like it effectively combined with the immortality so I wondered a bit if that was the case with Lelouch but we'll see I suppose, she's not any definitive proof one way or another regarding that whole are they immortal now thing. Because even now the acknowledged rules about Codes and Geass were apparently thrown into question too, thanks to Lelouch erasing the Consciousness of man before in episode 21/movie III, so even C.C's continued immortality is apparently luck and shouldn't apparently work now even though it still does. I don't know anymore if Lelouch is immortal at this point, I guess we'll see which is why I'm glad there's good news on that front at least.

    Overrall I liked this movie, I just wanted more. This movie falters due to format, if they had had just a 12 episode season never mind 25 or maybe another two movies it could have done so much better by allowing time to flesh out the newer characters, create more backstory and world building regarding Zilkhstan and their splinter Geass faction, animate more of the action and strategies between Shanma and Lelouch instead of skipping past them after like the first 3 engagements, and get more reactions and interactions with Lelouch and everyone after his return instead of all these crazy fast reunions. Explain more about what the heck is going on with Geass, Codes, Code Geass in Lelouch and Shanma's case, and World of C stuff in general etc etc. We just needed MORE I felt and it could have been great with a longer format instead of just good as a single movie with a lot of fan-service that really only appeals for longtime viewers of the series.

    Ah well, hopefully we get more cause 10 more years of Code Geass is now planned, with Re;surrection apparently only being phase 1 they announced! I TOLD you this was going to be the new recanon Dann, they're going to continue where the movie left off now it seems They even did a weird thing of acknowledging those damn Oz manga only characters (freaking Kewel's sister is actually still alive, though that actually makes sense cause unlike the manga in the movies Kewel himself died as part of the Valkyries with Bradely instead funny enough). Anyway, I'm still just going to merge the anime and movies together still since there are no REAL differences besides Shirley, and given how little she did and how minuscule her contribution was to Lelouch's return I question even that difference cause a civilian somehow obtaining and carrying off Lelouch's body would be just as ridiculously suspicious as either Jeremiah or C.C doing it, and had no bearing on him actually being resurrected (cause Charles Code and C.C's actions all did or could have happened in the anime version too) so it was clearly just an excuse to give her something to do. Unless Mao shows up at this point, I really see no need to distinguish between the two formats since basically all the main plot points were still the same

    Nah Dann, there's still so many questions like C.C's real name (which everyone is still peeved hasn't been revealed yet) that we need to tackle along with these Geass and World of C questions, plus we can always create more anti-peace factions or reintroduce Charles and Marianne since they still seem to be swirling in the void of C, so I 'm thankful we'll be continuing on after all and seeing where it goes

    No prob, and totally understandable man.

    Woot, saw the trailer a bit earlier. Do you know how long the screenings are for exactly Dann? Are they just for those specific days you think? Cause I'd LIKE to try to see both the sub and dub on the same day personally, and am 50/50 after that trailer on which to see first. Probably the sub, but I am just so impressed they brought back so many of the original dub cast after 8-9 years like this.

    That is pretty low budget and loew viewership for Code Geass' target audience though and would probably be something more along the lines of OVA. The lady has a code? I only know the main enemy lady has a Geass, her brother's a whole mystery to me so far (and I thought Lelouch made her go to sleep according to the spoilers so that really doesn't say much if she's immortal or not?) It also could also be a metaphor for all we know, other things I've heard for the post credit was he was offering a contract, but who the heck knows until we see it for ourselves.

    Meh, I'm mostly hoping for the potential doors it opens up for future projects myself really. Hence why I keep calling it the new canon. Same as the old canon with minor tweaks to fit the current setting etc (Like Gundam Origins! )

    Huzzah, still makes it really hard to decide whether to go dub or sub now... <_<

    Yo Dann, just wanted to let you know I'm prepping for a trip to DC, any response to any message you send in the next few weeks might be delayed. Hope you're doing well in the meantime, and I'll be sure to respond when I get back. Cya then

    Ah, good to hear. Sounds like fun, hope one day I can go down there myself, always wanted to visit.

    Again though, the only real change of any lasting consequence was Shirley, and other change in the movies we saw were just in response to cut content for the most part. And again, Shirley herself was utterly replaceable in terms of her actual role. Well, probably just the end of Lelouch and C.C. as main characters I bet... probably. Any future story will probably involve them as side characters while they continue exploring Geass. So hopefully we do learn more about it and them at some point *cough* C.C's real name *cough* Potentially into like the far future even as they wander the earth together (personally think Lelouch is immortal since he came back to life but I bet he just lacks the ability to give out Geass contracts etc, while his own Geass seems to have also weakened from what it was before based on the clips we've seen in english)

    Well, it seems to be doing well/is popular at least over in Japan so I think that's encouraging and given how highly regarded it is among American fans there's a good chance it is. Worst case scenario we wait for the DVD or something to stream it ourselves. Speaking of the American release I'm actually curious enough to wait/delay a few days when it debuts to see if I can't catch the dub version of the movie along with the sub, I'm wondering if they really managed to get most of the old english cast back for this one myself.
