You know you’re a legend when you get all those haters crying about Code Geass years later and they still can’t change how praised and loved the anime is basically everywhere. What a legendary series and what a GOAT you are sir.

You know how little respect for true Code Geass fans this guy had when he had Suzaku murder Nonette in the manga and replaced her with Dorothea in the anime. "So what if the fans like this character who showed the antagonists to not all be evil? Lelouch makes money. He must be right and remembered as an icon. Screw the hardcore fans!"

How ironic the true hardcore fans now worship Lelouch and aren't smart enough to think about who anyone else is.

And did anyone else catch the line where Milly directly mocks people who didn't like the rom-com distractions? She literally looks at the camera. That may be the least veiled narcissism I have ever seen in any piece of media.

I hope Lelouch's new democracy becomes corrupt in "Z of the Recapture" and Suzaku is unmasked. That would be so satisfying. Also, we need the wasted Polish and dark skin of ambiguous race waifus back for that plot. They're the only characters of interest besides Nonette who never had a chance to be butchered. Pardon the tasteless pun. 😐

Code gayass has more plotholes than a basket

You may have to be blinder than Lelouch's sister to claim Code Geass takes itself all that seriously (here is a hint, death does not equal total seriousness), but then again certain people don't have any idea about Taniguchi's style, which is heavily inclined towards camp and over-the-top presentation.

That said, in some ways Planetes was a more subtle show because the setting was more realistic (and they made it more realistic in the anime compared to the manga), but most of his works are far from self-serious. Claiming that it "destroyed" the manga is such a ridiculous statement on Vexem's part. Both the manga and the anime won the Seiun award and the show is being rebroadcast in Japan soon.

Code gayass is singlehandedly the most overrated piece of dogshit that takes itself seriously

I love how people always have to comment their distaste for Geass on this site. Stay mad haters.
