      I did watch it for a while. And it's not as good as death Note in my opinion. Death Note beats all of them. XD

      Well for one, I didn't like the "colonial" concept and two, I disliked how Lelouch turned out at the end. And I didn't like how they demonized the westerners. XD I'm not too hooked on political intrigues, that's why.

      Not sure what you meant by demonized the westerners, it looks like they used a time line which the united states did not come around.

      Well, Japan looks at the westerners with a comtemptuous glare you know, and they think whites are land takers. And in Code Geass, Brits conquered Japan and Japan's under their control. So yeah, that's what I meant by demonizing westerners.

      yep. But yeah, I mean, occidentals still are not as evil as Japanese pictured them, in my eyes. I think some westerners are rather a nice and courageous bunch. Asians also take lands, so yeah, that was my whole point. Japan occupied China for a length of time too. So they're a bit hypocritical themselves.

      were all hypocritical in a way.


      Anyways, in the code geass timeline it looks like the British then Americans are doing the land taking.

      well, everyone's in one way or another, very much phony and fake. So, why not come right out and say it?

      I'm not really into those "machine Transformer imitation" animes, haha (I think people call 'em mache, mecha or something).
      I have heard that it's a good anime but it's just not my cup of tea, ;)

      the anime is not all about the mecha in it. The machines are only really part of the anime and this is hardly a transformer imitation.

      When I say transformer, I don't mean the transforming. But, I just say mecha is mecha (hence imitation blah).
      You wouldn't understand, :lmao:

      I have a thing against mecha anime that's mostly mecha.
      Code Geass seems like one of those anime that focuses a lot on mecha, :thumbsdown:

      I do understand, but the best way to describe code geass is that it's chess with someone moving the robots. So it cuts to the guy moving them and then cuts to the scene of the robots attacking.

      It's not all on the mechs.

      To my understanding though, the Anime's mostly based off Mecha & Tech no?

      part of it is, I would say supernatural is what it's mostly based on.
