    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.

    Same, had to peel back a couple of 4chan posts but I got enough consitency amongst them to get the gist or what happened, and I'm generally satisfied and feel pretty vindicated on all fields from the theory being more or less correct and on which ship finally seems to have won out in the end

    That's what I've been telling you, this whole alternate canon is BS in my view and we might as well just call it a recanon or new canon personally, with only one real change to be honest and even then that change was really inconsequential as I thought Shirley would be.

    Anyway, new trailer has dropped, posting a link for you to check out

    Hey, thought I'd throw in a cool music promo from the Ed song of the Ressurection movie while I'm at it. Seems like an appropriate song and I'm basically humming it whenever I look at something Code Geass related now Also want to recommend that new Gen:lock series by Rooster Teeth, I'm really starting to dig it personally and I love the voice cast they got for it as well, including Japanese Spike Spiegel of all people

    Let's hold until we both see for ourselves, some stuff is weirdly contradictory here and there from the spoilers though I do understand the gist of it. Still, it'll be better once we can see it for ourselves on release. All I will say right now is I'm feeling better from where we left off in our arguments on the forums for how he could have survived after R2, all the people who decried the theory back then are currently freaking out it seems

    He's ALIVE Dann!!

    Also opening from the first scene of the movie was released with some fan subtitles to boot. Seems one of my fears for a certain character not showing up were realized however, RIP to them

    For the format I don't disagree, but it also isn't some complete reboot like Legend of the Galactic Heroes: New Thesis, and more along the lines of the Gundam OVA to anime transitions. True that, I got the impression if it hadn't been for Shirley's death Lelouch wouldn't have destroyed the Geass Order outright but taken it over with C.C. instead.

    About that only one who honestly hasn't appeared in any teaser or trailer is Xing Ke, kind of worried they potentially made his illness/impending death actually relevant and he might not show up which would be sad They looked more like adapted models to me, making a bigger focus on the insect form given that canon on the back. If it was another model sure but I recall how difficult the Alexander was and why it was an elite unit testing model so we'll see. Yeah, a lot of people were confused by that promo, but I think it makes sense. Also my theory on nerve gear piloting by Shario seems to be more likely cause he's in a wheel chair in another trailer I found while whipping Suzaku.

    I don't particularly think it conflicts, Deikun was well past the end of his youth and suffering from extreme paranoia, doesn't mean he didn't start off as the bright and optimistic activist history would later portray him as and I personally thought it gave Char more character growth in that he had to learn to accept his father upon discovering the truth of the Newtype theory. Yeah, not looking forward to that prick after CCA, even if he probably dies cause that'll just bring pain to Bright and make me hate Hathaway even more... reminds me that I should watch NT whenever that finishes now btw.

    I'm just saying that between those brief scenes, Jeremiah's 'improvements' and V.V. calling Rolo an experiment (and all those kids in test outfits) plus his Geass' physical flaw (which is the only one we know of unlike with the other Geass' we know got contracts) it was always my impression his was artificial. But yeah that stuff is still super confusing, mostly cause they left it vague on purpose, so I hope we finally get more answers on Geass' nature with this movie personally. Lelouch's character at that time struck me as a person who would do whatever it takes for the sake of the world, so that the sins and sacrifices weren't for nothing, and I do mean whatever it took whether it be living (as he made Suzaku do) or dying, and if there was an obvious potential flaw in his plan he'd look for ways to address it. But again, movie's coming out soon so let's table this debate and see what happens

    That's great news, replacement tooth surgery seems to have gone well on my end too. Got to go in for a deep cleaning and examination next week but otherwise I'm glad to put that episode behind me It might just be me being used to mandatory ecchi in a lot of other series but I kind of appreciate they don't dance around it personally and own what they're doing Anyway, glad you seem to enjoy it so far. Mostly I just like the characters alot better, a more straightforward and still interesting plot line compared to Qwaser. And yeah that might work but given the disposition of some of the science focused villains I do think it a nice contrast to have science and magic opposed to one another like that (Or the MC using magic in scientific ways).

    Well anyway, I've seen the latest TPN episodes and they're really on point so far I have to say. Good to hear about Broly, cold front over here is keeping me inside recently though so I'll see about tracking it and MHA movie down later. Oh yeah I did, thought I'd let it release a few more episodes so the actual story gets told and criticism can die down and people move on already like with Goblin Slayer <_<

    That's not my point Dann, I agree that can't be helped but again I see no reason on my end to distinguish the two formats and to not use the anime to fill gaps to essentially the same story in order to make overrall narrative sense rather then just for the convenience of the movies, especially when said movies leave such offscreen gaps out on purpose or have cut transitions of little consequence. It's entirely rationale though given the flaws we've both picked at with the Zero Requiem plan and the consequences we see play out in the Re;surrection movie already, and I think it totally in character for him to mull such a possibility ahead of time. Mostly cause he was distracted with big picture items or Nunnally but between Shirley, Kallen, and C.C. they all had plenty of moments of interest on his part which shows his potential for it. I never said Lelouch would pursue it actively, just that it's a possibility I would consider having just worked out that way. Again we'll have to see, I wasn't being serious about a huge romantic focus as I was just addressing your own point about if they did do any type of said romantic focus at all in this film. Okay good good, his name is in the title so I was fairly confident that was the case but nice to have confirmation

    Ah, sorry to hear that then, hopefully the upcoming years proves to be better in that regard but hang in there Dann Gah, I was hoping that wouldn't be the case but if they caught it maybe they can do something about it before it gets that far, what kind of medical do you have btw? I know the health care system is in a bit of limbo right now but even still surely your insurance can do something right? Ah cool, sounds like things will be interesting on that front for 2019 at least. It's just a feature for power ups and only the main character ever actually does it so far, so just consider it standard ecchi for the most part, and there aren't that many breast sucking series in general so I always considered it a novelty to have personally But for the most part think of it as just a more fantasy ecchi version of Gunka no Baltzer like a I said. Anyway, I'll PM it to you now if that's your take on it, let me know your thoughts

    This is just what the link to the interview I read said, that he was aiming for 20 to 30 volumes of total and when it was published last summer we were at just 10 volumes released. I know we both prefer to wait so the story develops but you just seem to have a lot of back log Dann, and maybe catching up to where you only have to worry about a weekly or monthly update chapter might be easier to manage was all I was suggesting. Looking forward to that, I just have to track down the My Hero Academia movie now, I'll also probably wait until I watch Season 4 before continuing on to the manga as well.

    Which is fine and makes sense for that format but nevertheless is not a good story or narrative reason, you yourself pointed how inconsistent some of the cuts are like Kallen's romantic feelings and devotion to Zero. So I see no reason to even consider some of the other minor alterations as real changes aside from Shirley being alive due to Jeremiah's warning quite frankly cause doing so has no consequence. And as I've said if they wanted an AU they should have made an actual AU with a drastically different story instead of just telling the same one and even reusing most of the existing animation from the anime series to do so. Exactly, though in my view it's not 'another' version but simply an updated version instead. Indeed, though I felt the narrative flow and more extended backstory of the anime helped explain the BK's overreaction as well, and again I just feel better about Lelouch beating the snot out of them later for it but to each their own Likely not so let's put that to rest, this has just been my take ever since R2 ended and then they just kept piling on with the Code Geass spin-offs afterwards to keep the franchise going/relevant until then, but again that's just me. I mean just given the adhoc nature of restarting the series from almost scratch in R2 speaks to more then timeslot to me but also they didn't have a concrete plan for a season 2 in place period, and I just remember that being part of the ongoing blog review and forum debates when R2 was just getting started.

    Hmm? If we're just talking the characters who've appeared in the Resurrection trailers it seems like the majority are back, starting with the first preview involving all the Black Knights, most of the chinese federation characters minus Xing Ke, and the student council minus Shirley but we'll see I suppose. I'm just saying that whole insect feature had a complete backstory for its failed offshoot sixth generation development in the Akito OVA's so it's not something you can casually disregard is all. Could be both, the sand gets in a way but I'm sure we'll see it in action soon enough to find out since I think one of the antagonists (Green jacket vest man who wears a similar visor to Shario) pilots it. Still want nice happy series I see Dann, well I think a feels anime like Violet Evergarden might also do you some good so do keep it in mind to watch, at least before the movie comes out

    You're acting again as if it would be a total remake instead of just updating the existing storyline, I mean this isn't the Legend of Galactic Heroes New Thesis Dann, they even use a lot of the same Gundam 80's artistic design for Origins after all Yeah I went through it as well, will like that anime version of the Origin OVAs but I am NOT looking forward to Hathaway's Flash... <_<

    I don't blame you as a lot of the mentions were from brief cameo-esque scenes which the first season of Code Geass especially loved. but this is where obsessive rewatchings helps, cause I've managed to catch and stitch all such intricate web weaving The words failed experiment seems pretty explicit to me plus there were flashbacks of exactly that with Rolo being hooked up to all kinds of machines and the like which just reinforced that artifical message to me. Geass powers don't seem to have any hard rules to me, I mean I'm not even bringing up all the weird stuff from Akito... <_< Again I'm just pointing out how it all comes together, especially Shario's suit design which I'm pretty sure has tubes sticking out of the back into the machine like with the Siegfried's nervous system setup when we see him piloting which only a Code related person could ever use... Of course we don't have a lot to go on but I think we can at least agree there's a lot of Geass shenanigans going on with this movie and our antagonist country in particular. I don't know why you wouldn't at least concede the possibility Dann, I mean Lelouch almost ALWAYS had contingencies and plans, it's what he's always done in this franchise Well I imagine him coming back is really only a possibility, not a gurantee which was reinforced by Marianne's own comments I believe, which is why I think it's considered an 'in case of emergency break class' kind of situation and why he would feel regretful. That being said I feel that both the movie trailers and the movie ending for C.C. reinforce the notion of such a contingency on his part, one because C.C. said in the trailer she still had a promise that I made, not Lelouch made, and the second being that at the end of the third movie she was actively weighing options of either waiting for Lelouch, or of just roaming through time. The words I promised and waiting to me suggest collaboration on her part and not active initiative, but we'll see I suppose.
