Moment #6 – Code Geass and Lelouch’s Death
It had to be said. Really, him dying was the last thing that I’d expected. We’d known Lelouch as that crazy bastard who did stuff and ended up being king (emperor) of the world, and now he does this? Because all the anime had given us were hints, passing mentions of Zero Re;quiem, I had no clue as to what it all pointed to, or even how the series would end. Who knew that the curtain would fall with his self-sacrifice?
As multitudes of other bloggers have already pointed out, Geass was a trainwreck. I won’t deny that it was – who could? But the series, with all its illogical plot twists, unexplained terminology and jargon, inconsistent characterization, and a complete mess of a story, will be remembered for quite some time. For all the wrong reasons.
