Zero Requiem, Code Geass R2, thank you

This was originally intended to be a reply at a blog about Code Geass R2’s ending. I decided to put it here, since I’m in control of excess here and spam will never be able to get pass the security I have up.

Tune: “Continued Story” by Hitomi Kuroishi

Just happened on this one blog about the ending to CG R2. I find that the ending of this series to be quite beautiful. Poetic in a raw sense. I think the correct word to use would be “epic”.

Everything from series 1 all the way to now makes complete sense and I am satisfied it ended this way. Zero lived up to his name from start to end. If anyone were to ever ask me, “Which fictional characters had given you a memorable experience?” I would have to say that Zero/Lelouch is one of them.

Things we wish to know, eg: what C.C. means does play a disturbing role in our minds, I’m sure, but they’re trivial and leaves something remarkable to remember by. Remarkable as in, “we’ll ponder on it over and over again until we get so sick of it that we want nothing to do with it”. Yet, it wouldn’t be so, because for those who have grown to appreciate this sort of anime/art piece(s), we’ll always remember it as one of the best anime ever created – no matter how some people may deem it “cliched” and “bland”. Looking past the surface material is often a component of anime – at least, anime with depth.

I have to applaud Gorō Taniguchi and Ichirō Ōkouchi for an excellent two series, as well as Hitomi Kuroishi for your beautiful voice and Kōtarō Nakagawa for making the music happen. Thank you.

Of course, with that said, I’m looking forward to getting my hands on legit Bandai DVD’s of both the first and second series.

Leemanism is about my views, my thoughts, and my feelings with as little filtering as possible. These concepts are not reflected in the people I value and are associated with. People who accept me, adhere to the parts where we are compatible and tolerate the parts where we are not. So however people perceive me to be, ultimately it obviously doesn't mean the friends I mention in this blog are the same as me. It means it's possible they are similar or the same, as well as different than me. It is highly unusual for people to be completely compatible with each other.

With that out of the way, and to make things clear, I never said I am a good person, nor am I trying to be one, though I would rather live with the empathetic than with the cruel. I would not deliberately do harm. I rather stand up against injustice than to pretend it doesn't exist. However, I understand consequences. The police is there to enforce the law, but not deter crimes from happening. Which means people must do what they must do to protect themselves, before the law of the land takes over and even then, the law of the land isn't there to protect you. It's there to protect the general consensus. Even if you may be right, society may deem you wrong - even most of your friends may side with society, than protect you. The law will almost always side with society.

We are few. Stay safe. (•̀ᵥᵥ•́)
