I have seen some conversations about how code geass is full of Deux Ex and plot holes, bad writing and such. Can someone explain this dislike towards it. What were some examples of bad writing and Deux Ex?

The beginning of Code Geass R2 was boring.

Also the Ragnarok Connection/C's World was poorly explained
I wonder how many people know how to use google and not just ask a question which has been answered thousands of times already in the past.

There was no one that is an L to Lelouch. Everyone acted inferior to Lelouch no matter what.

Didn't dislike it but the fast pacing had me confused quite frequently. There are times when I didn't understand the story so I was left blank until I looked up the episode plot summary online. I got a feeling this is just me though, I haven't seen other people with this issue as well.

I think it's great despite its fair share of ridiculous moments.

That scene where they play chess with their ships though... got to be the stupidest thing I've seen so far haha 😂😂😂


This Signature is gonna be removed soon anyway so...Why?

Because it's one of the most popular and highly rated

People hate what they wanna hate, the number of haters usually commensurate with popularity so you get the idea.

It became boring at some point but nevertheless I completed the whole show and it was an amazing ride.

I can't say I disliked it for the story or any plot holes, since I didn't finish it. I just really disliked the art style.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

First season is entertaining and decent despite some minor issues.

But season 2 is just an epic disaster. As many people say, probably the dumbest show to ever take itself very seriously.

As someone who really enjoyed Code Geass R1, I thought R2 dropped the ball in a lot of ways. It tries to do too much and fails to live up to a lot of the goals of the premise. Here are a few of my problems with it:

- The Ragnarok Connection and Geass origins come to mind as the major plot points that weren't really well implemented or resolved. Charles' (Human Instrumentality) project comes out of nowhere and ends up being a really anti-climactic resolution for the main villain. Lelouch shoots up the plot of the Geass research facility, before it gets any explanation, because his side-bitch died.

- It gets quite ridiculous with how easily everyone switches sides (Rolo is the worst for this) and/or becomes a high-school student for shits & giggles.

- Too much time is wasted on these school antics (Episodes where Lelouch goes on 50 dates and is assaulted by his instant-harem & the giant pizza repeat)

- The Chinese arc isn't really relevant other than providing Xingke for the Black Knights.

The ending is great though and well worth the ride. I just think there was a lot of squandered potential for the series to be more comprehensively satisfying.

Because of over high expectations. Personally, I like Code Geass because I lowered my expectations on this anime. Don't like mecha anime much but the story got me hooked.

Probably because it's very inconsistent and a lot of ideas didn't get the screentime they should have to develop and resolve them properly, especially in R2, while keeping the school subplot that could have been dropped halfway through

Personally I love Code Geass wholeheartedly and a lot of issues I recognise didn't bother me, or rather don't outweigh all the briliant and cool stuff. But I can understand where people who dislike it come from. It's not a perfect series, which is a bit of a shame, but I still adore it.

I'm going to post according to MAL suggestion system.

If you like strategy games, then you may like code geass. Then again, smart people would be offended by the flaws.

this guy's videos are pretty trash, he wastes the majority of the video explaining plot points. not really an "analysis" or really even an explanation

i haven't seen code geass so i have no opinion on it

I've never watched Code Geass, and I never will, because I absolutely hate the art style.

Same problem as berserk; if you don't like horror-and-gore, or in this case melodrama-and-memes, the show is not for you, yet people recommend the show with no caveats like it's a flat inoffensive series like one piece.

This.

I think that Death Note is the better show. But, Lelouch is the better protagonist.

Honestly, there are not many CG haters as i've seen. From the mainstream ones it has quite favourable views unlike SAO, Death Note, Naruto, etc.

I only hate R2. I thought R1 was solid.

And I hate R2 because it started doing these....stupid random things....it just felt like they were making it up as they went along. :/ Very nonsenical....

well, speaking from personal experience for a second:

it kinda got me into anime, then I kinda became a ThatAnimeSnob-grade asshat midway through so I was a tad busy yelling at clouds that it was the most biggest worstestest crappy thing ever an it indeed is kinda bad when you dissect it analytically BUT

it's entertaining man

like it's that dumb as shit gundam AU with sparkly eyes and whack 3D chess, of course you'd hate it if you compared it to LoGH or whatever, but if you take it as it is, it's your mecha fast-food of the day, won't hurt you as long as you eat healthy mecha food the rest of the time

plus code geass and TTGL introduced me to the mecha genre, so thanks, I guess, were're cool now lelouch, no hard feelings

Cause these are the same people who are snobs about it. Shinzaki san manga had the perfect frame that explained this shit.

It's has a good story line but the art and character names are literally horrible.

?? It has a 8.79 score on MAL, so...... what makes you think it's disliked? Just because 5-6 people dislike it, doesn't mean that it's the same for other 600,000+ users...

Yeah probably an exageration, I was speaking "colourfuly". But it definitely has a lot of melodrama and a lot of stuff that seems like meme-celebration-swarm-bait.
-But it is a good show in most respects so the proper way to say that is that if you don't have a strong tolerance for it its not for you, the show is good in most respects so you don't have to *actively* like it.

..But shit do they take some sharp left turns off cliffs out of fucking nowhere.

Reminds me of when I was watching death note and then this foot washing scene comes on out of nowhere. At first I was like what-the- ..-fuck is this, but in retrospect it was a good head warning, heads up, watch out, for a particular twist that was coming later.

But yeah, code geass goes in pretty hard for the 'wow this show has balls' value, and I don't think its any mystery that some people are gonna hate that.
