    Weird, I didn't see anything come to me recently via email when checking. Last thing I have is from last year, though I see now there's a chat message or whatever you'd call it from February I realize I missed entirely. Sorry on that! I'll respond there too.

    I'm doing pretty good all things considered. Just working mainly. Are you doing okay? I hope things are alright given everything going on.

    Hey! I'm managing. Gonna be working from home for a while through May at least which has been weird. Don't seem to be sick at least though some of my family got it. How are you doing? I know New York was one of the hot spots.

    Hope you're doing well. Probably short notice and I have no idea if you planned to go or even had time, but there's a convention in NYC this coming weekend it seems that'll have some CG panels. I guess writer Okouchi, the main artist Kimura, and Yukana are guests. They're also doing autograph sessions if you preorder the film there (comes out February).

    Hey, no problem. Hope you're doing alright. Been busy on my side with work mainly, but that's nothing new. Hope you're vacation goes well! I've been hearing a bit about it. The company behind it has released some other games, though they always seemed to have some things holding them back. Haven't had a chance to check it out too much myself. I recently finished a game called Control that I really enjoyed in terms of the world and lore. Some really cool sequences in it too.

    Someone did what I thought was a decent breakdown on how things may be working with C's World.

    I mean they never brought it up again after that episode even when there were tons of moments where it would have been appropriate. They even could have kept up not letting us hear it. Maybe we'll get it in that death scene I'm expecting. I got the impression what she was doing was trying to get C's World back in order which was why she needed Nunnally since I guess her presence dispersed Charles and Marianne? You notice the whole place starts looking more and more put together every time she goes in and that she was pretty much aiming for world reconstruction like Charles was. Given that it was described as a system, maybe it could be thought of someone making repairs to it so that it may be used again? I don't think they have much more to contribute honestly. I think it might be cooler to instead stay in the real world and deal with threats there. Maybe introduce another Code Bearer? You'd have to come up with where they were but that could be danced around like them isolating themselves or perhaps having been imprisoned by the Order. There's always Evil Skull! I'll grant that Marianne's whole thing was very rushed and Charles didn't exactly do much, though given how his plan was he didn't really need to.

    Just throwing things out there. I just think in a world that's largely peaceful you could still have cool robot fights this way. Build Fighters would be another example, though that of course it with models.

    Also, the Gekkoei was totally a Zeong reference right? I'd really like a model/figure of that thing though I don't think it actually had any weapons.

    Anything out of E3 catch your eye? I thought FFVIIR had a fantastic showing though I do wonder how long it'll take to actually get the full game.

    Apologies on the huge delay here.

    I'd imagine it will be sometime out this year in the fall perhaps. Haven't seen anything else yet.

    Yeah, but it still seemed like it wasn't totally back to normal and then you had Chamna dying and all those Geass fragments scattering. I don't think they're merged. I think she has an incomplete one like Lelouch does, which is why they have both. Her conversation with C.C. has some bit where her reason being twisted and that caused her Geass to change, which I guess sort of goes back to some stuff from the first season. That whole thing with the skull was weird in general. I don't know if we necessarily need it explored more than we generally have, but getting a better idea on the rules would be quite helpful. I think the idea is that a bunch of the souls present in C's World helped him out the first time when they were getting his memories back and then the second time when he was with Nunnally.

    I don't know, if you look at scenes where it is visible and then look at others it isn't present like at the end. It's either a weird animation error or it's vanishing/moving. If it's incomplete that may even make sense since it's never really made clear what benefit he gets out of it. That could make sense, but she seems to get them before he actually declares the order and we get the little brainwave change animation which I thought was interesting.

    Yeah, she seemed to know how it all worked when C.C. was explaining about Lelouch though perhaps not the specifics. Probably saw her get a killed a few times. Surprised we never saw Lloyd asking her questions about it since it seems the sort of thing he'd be intrigued by, though maybe it happened off screen or he never had the chance. He seemed pretty curious when she was explaining how it works. Yeah, thinking on it more it would make sense those sightings like that would be the source and perhaps just in general how conspiracy theories always turn up. You'd have thought she might do a better job of disguising him, though in that state it might have been too much of a hassle. Still wondering why they went for a movie specifically. The series was always super popular so I would imagine a sequel would have done well, though maybe a movie is more of a sure bet. I just find myself hesitant regarding that since it feels like luck this turned out as well as it did even with the problems.

    Oh yeah, they actually had Nunnally in that outright see the main universe or something, right? I'm not really surprised honestly. They were vague about it in the show and other works by Taniguchi have had stuff like this where it's left super vague on how some aspects to the world work.

    They sort of did though I guess they didn't outright state that's what those were. Curious if a bunch of random people are going to get Geass now. I wonder if they'll gather them together into a group and then fight bad Geass users. They could call themselves the G-Men or maybe G-Rangers. Isn't it just getting an OVA? I can't imagine the whole thing is going to be covered.

    I dunno, I could see them going the sad route and have that whole "die smiling" thing come to pass. Maybe they get a few years at least. It just feels like such an obvious thing to do I almost can't see them passing up on it.

    I've pretty much accepted we are never getting that real name unless maybe she dies and he says it while she's dying. Eh, I think you can't have too many of those and as much as I like Charles I think it's fine to retire him and Marianne as well. Though I was unclear if they were still swirling around or if whatever Shamna was doing actually was restoring things.

    I'd actually really like if we had a slice of life series with the cast since I just enjoy watching them interact (I really liked the last scene in general but the fact that it started with Lelouch and C.C. bickering had me smiling). I also had this weird idea that maybe in lieu of using Knightmares for combat we could maybe see them get used as some sort of sporting event like IGPX or something.

    Managed to catch both the sub and the dub version. Also found a cam of the sub (quality is okay), though hopefully we get a home release sooner rather than later. I was lucky to have the day off on Sunday for the sub. I don't know know that I'd say that. Some slight differences in wording, but I didn't think there was much different at all.

    Most of the Geass stuff in the film is incredibly vague especially the new stuff. We did get an explanation on how C.C.'s immortality works though, which is apparently that she draws from something like a backup from C's World. That bit actually made sense though I'm unclear as well on whether she'll be able to draw from it anymore since it seemed like C's World was getting back in order. But yeah, no acknowledgement on Shamna having a Code at all and all we get on her Geass is that it seemed to warp from it's original form, which C.C. indicated was due to her reason being corrupted. That would seem to indicate that what happened wasn't due to what Lelouch did, but I wonder if it's some sort of advanced form of Runaway Geass where it morphs into something else. It also put me in mind to Akito the Exiled with how the Caretaker referred to the antagonist's Geass (I can't remember the name) as warped/corrupted.

    Lelouch seemed just as confused on where he stood as well and they don't really address it either. I also noticed that his Code would sometimes seem to disappear like at the end, but he also seemed to have what seemed like a mark or scar on his neck? His Geass seemed about the same despite having a new animation, though something happened at the end with Shamna that I didn't understand. Her eyes had the Geass ring around them, we cut to Lelouch with his Geass active, but he didn't actually give the order to a sleep until a few moments later.

    I enjoyed it, though the movie was very much a fanservice sort of thing. It was weird at first with how accepting everyone seemed to be about Lelouch being back, though it seemed to be a combo of people who knew about C.C.'s immortality or due to rumors he never died. The latter sort of felt to me almost like little reference to the theories he was alive with the show after it ended. I thought the editing got weird in the latter half with how it would cut from one side to another (Kallen's final showdown with Bitool for one and how it was cut alongside some stuff in C's World). I felt there was a great lack in terms of interactions between the characters especially when it came to Lelouch. Suzaku probably had it the best with their talk on the water tower, but I was left wanting with everyone else. Some good stuff with C.C., but the utter lack of any real conversation between Kallen and Lelouch felt weird to me. She does say she doesn't know what to talk about, but I think you could have had a nice scene with him asking what she's up to as well as how the other Student Council members are doing at the very least.

    Overall, I agree that if this had been a short 12-13 episode series they would have had more time to devote towards those interactions as well as building up Zilkhstan up more. I didn't mind how they started skipping with the fight, though I kept wondering whether there's now a bunch of alternate timelines with how she kept going back. They also tease a bit about C.C. and Shirley having developed this rapport and I kind of wanted to see more of that. I'm not sure if they really would have gone into more detail on the Geass stuff even if they did have more time since they've always been vague about it all. I really hope we get a picture drama or something with the home release with some more interactions or something.

    I mean they'd already indicated that this and the new movie trilogy was going to be the start of something, though now with this 10 year plan we have more of an idea. Apparently those falling stars are the fragments Lelouch and C.C. are going after, though of course it's unclear what those even are. I'm pretty sure every member of the new Knights of the Round barring Nonette is from the Oz manga actually. It's kind of a shame they never animated Oz since it actually seemed fairly interesting, though maybe we could see that as one of the new projects. I kind of would have liked to see the moment C.C. revived him.

    I'm sort of wondering where you go with Lelouch as a character now, though I suppose now I have the renewed worry of seeing C.C. die and how that might affect him.

    So far as I've seen, it's those three days and that's it. This doesn't have the same kind of appeal as DragonBall so I wouldn't expect much more than that. The sub is only for that Sunday with the dub on those two later days and I've seen no mentions of both being on the same day. I got tickets for both, though the dub could be tricky to get to on time given traffic that time of the day when I leave work.

    I guess they had a panel in Seattle over the weekend that had a showing of the film as well as the director in attendance with him confirming they have plans set for the next ten years for the series. So I guess the film is sort of a beginning for that. The only thing they teased was something about falling stars and a savior.

    Yes, it's apparently located where her womb would be and is considered an incomplete one like Lelouch's. The movie doesn't really explain what that means and it's left vague whether Lelouch actually is immortal. Could be he can grant Geass, but can also be affected by it and killed. Or maybe some sort of deal where he'll just not age or die by natural causes, but can be killed. The vagueness of it is honestly quite irritating and could be some sort of hook for a sequel.

    Seems that is what it is, though I would have been fine if they left it.
