Code Geass 2: Most anticipated mecha show in recent memory?

Standard

Well, that is the conclusion I arrived at if my blog stats are to be believed. I get a lot of hits from queries on the 2nd season of Code Geass almost every day. Even though the material is not solid–Lelouch is the only reason I’m watching this show, I get the vibes that Code Geass is in the path to becoming a classic. Although it will probably be more in a notorious kind of way. See my pathetic stats below.

  1. Code Geass simply generated a lot of buzz–Pizza Hut definitely had a hand in making it (in)famous. I also wonder if the sequel to Gundam 00 will be able to generate the same kind of excitement/anticipation that Code Geass 2 has achieved.

  2. They spent a lot of time making Code Geass, especially the Season 1 Finale.

    Gundam 00 is nowhere near as popular as Code Geass…i feel like the characters in 00 just arent as appealing.

    you blog stats are still better than mine! ^^ so keep it up!

  3. I think the 1st few eps will put off many of the fans gained during the 1st season. Why? it’s not a direct continuation but rather a “sometime later” opener.

    As with most animes, the answers won’t come till near the very end at which point it will only make sense if you take drugs or waited till all the eps were out so they could be marathoned with no sleep.

  4. “Most anticipated mecha show in recent memory.”
    You made the point.

    Code Geass is already a cult classic . And R2 is already a success even before its beginning.

    >>i feel like the characters in 00 just arent as appealing.

    That’s probably a major reason Gundam 00 isn’t as popular as Geass is.

    >>btw which plugin/widget do you use for your Archives??

    I have no idea what it’s called–I’m on WordPress exactly because I don’t like to bother with the technical side of blogging. Sorry couldn’t answer that question. ^_^;

    >>it will only make sense if you take drugs or waited till all the eps were out so they could be marathoned with no sleep.

    I hope your prediction doesn’t come true. With all the shows that’s premiering this spring I’d be pressed for sleeping time. ^_^;

    >>Code Geass wants to be liked.

    I hate that part of CG. But that’s probably why it appeals so much–there’s just something in there for everyone (or almost everyone).

    >>And R2 is already a success even before its beginning.

    Nah I’d like to see the ending first (that is if they don’t punish us with a third season). 🙂

  6. I’m putting my vote for Macross Frontier. A sequel fans have been waiting for 13 years for. Animation is great, definitely surpasses CE and music been hitting the charts good, a show with a lot of history and older fans.

    I guess why anime viewers don’t like watching Gundam 00 is the whole heavy post 9/11 political aspect of it, yea fight against war, war is bad, preach, blah blah blah. Rather watch something like CE because its fantastic and magical with more appealing characters with amazing powers. Gundam pilots are just ordinary humans.

  7. >>I’m putting my vote for Macross Frontier.

    Definitely, for Macross fans it would be the most anticipated. And I soooo love the music too! 😀

  8. Code Geass R2 got a little TOO twisty IMO. It got so you did not know who to root for. Still, I understand the popularity.

    It was still enjoyable, however not as much as first season. Here are my takes on both seasons with lots o’ pics and perhaps a little wit:

  9. Yeah, a remake of some sort may do them good. But it might have to wait for a while to let people get past this version?

    I hear there were a number of issues they were wrestling with in season two. It sounds like it spun out of control a little.
