Wave and smile all you want Lelouch, but we know that outfit is ugly!
Here’s a short rant on my disappointment of episode 22 of Code Geass… Sometimes the superficial side of me takes over, being the Lelouch fangirl as I am, seeing him in such an ugly outfit makes me die a little inside! It also doesn’t help that this episode didn’t really show the likable side of his personality either because he was basically just a jerk the whole time. Persuading basically all of Brittania to like him by using Geass, is just plain lame! I can almost tolerate the outfit he is wearing to some extent, but it crosses a line when he wears that hat! I think he only took it off once in the whole episode, Suzaku’s outfit wasn’t much better either. In general, Lelouch as the emperor sucks, it loses something to his character that I loved so much. Also the Lelouch x Kallen moment that we were all waiting was ruined and the possibility for them to end up together is starting to seem like only a dream now. Lelouch was also quite harsh when he completely rejected Rivalz, but I don’t exactly blame him… Though, it does bother me that Nina’s character is trying to be portrayed as the “good guy” as even Lloyd rises against Suzaku and his ways. Although, that seems to be Lelouch and Suzaku’s plan; to have everyone hate them I mean.
We finished the episode off showing a stupid castle where we find out that Nunnally is still alive; like we didn’t see that coming. Although, I didn’t expect her to tell Lelouch and Suzaku that she was their enemy, only because I thought that would ruin her character too, which I felt it did. Now the kind Nunnally that we have always known is a power hungry soul like everyone else. It also seems that in the preview Suzaku is going to once again get really pissed off by Lelouch and from what I can tell, I don’t think Lelouch will be wearing that hat. It’s a start, but he needs to change the whole outfit next. Anyway, I didn’t hate this episode as much as it sounds, I was simply severely disappointed, especially after episode 21, which was simply amazing! I hope the series will be able to pick itself back up by the next episode because I’d hate to be disappointed again. At least we have Lelouch and Suzaku’s true intentions of their plan to look forward too.
