METANORN has now moved on:
Thank you!!! ^__^
Great List! But no Evangelion? Anyway overall, they are really strong picks.
I like Evangelion, bu there are WAY better OP’s out there.
Higurashi is one of the few series which has an OP and ED I consider the best I’ve seen (if you include the second season). But where’s Baccano! ;_;?
@fye: Evangelion is great already, but I’ll give some chance to other OPs to be in my list ^_^
@omisyth: I haven’t watched Baccano! yet so gomen…
Higurashi, Paranoia Agent and Elfen Lied owns!!! Great taste!
I agree with “Bouken Desho Desho?” and “The World”
fuck yeah, Eureka 7
The ending pwned from the way I see it. And the director succeed in making people believe what ever that want to believe about Lelouch being dead or alive.
However there are some theories floating around the internets (4chan) that say that he is alive. Which is what I believe.
Take a read through this and you can decide on your point of view.
Alright, it seems that the last episode was pretty complex and out of most of the people I’ve talked to, a lot of people don’t seems to get it. I’m going to tie up all the lose ends with this post.
The Code is the power of immortality, which C.C. has. The 98th Emperor of Britannia, Charles, has the Code. He transferred the Code to Lelouch while strangling him in episode 21. Lelouch wanted this, and he deliberately told Suzaku to not interfere.
Lelouch needed the fully evolved Geass to transfer a code. As hinted that Charles also had a fully evolved Geass (bird sigels’ in both eyes), thus he was able to get the code from V.V
However, the Code does not activate unless receiver dies first. This is shown when the nun kills C.C. after transferring the Code to her. Charle’s Code activated when he shot himself. Here is one of the big misconceptions that most people have: The transfer of the Code does not involve death of the transferrer. The nun was crazy and killed herself after she transferred her code. VV was injured from the battle and died. So basically, after episode 21, Lelouch had Charle’s Code (inactivated) and C.C’s contracted Geass.
When Lelouch got stabbed by Zero/Suzaku at the end, his Code was activated. What supports this is that Nunnally got Lelouch’s memories when she touched him, just like Lelouch did when he touched C.C. back in Narita. The only way this could have happened is his Code activating. This pretty much confirms that he has the Code.
Unlike C.C., and Charles, who lost their Geasses because the people who contracted them died, Lelouch didn’t obtain C.C.’s Code and thus kept his Geass, while having the Code (which he obtained from Charles at the same time). Lelouch therefore has achieved CODE GEASS.
Another clever thing is that the title has R2 in it. Just like C.C and V.V we can say that R.R is the fully evolved Lelouch.
He’s now traveling the country-side with C.C., living as immortals.
That’s the only reason for C.C. to be suddenly so happy again. Also, before you say that C.C. was just talking to the dead like with Marianne, that’s not true. She could only talk to her because of the nature of her Geass which allowed her to implant herself into the “hearts” of others. That’s how she was able to talk with Marianne. Lelouch’s Geass was entirely different, meaning that she could only have spoken to him if he was there.
