One of the best Animes I have ever seen finally comes to a close.
Obvious spoilers ahead…
Now, for those of you who have seen the ending to Code Geass R2, how did you feel about it?
The fight sequence was extremely well done. Seeing two very evenly matched opponents going against each other with awesome Knightmare Frames. I’m referring to Kallen/Guren and Suzaku/Lancelot of course.
The ending was simply poetic and I loved how everything since the beginning came to pass. Lelouch’s ‘I’ll be the one who will destroy the world and recreate it’ all makes sense in the end.
I was indeed stunned when Suzaku was supposedly killed. However, that surprise was immediately overshadowed by the ending (and of course, seeing him alive). Again, this is just pure poetry. Lelouch orchestrating the whole thing to allow the world to become peaceful.
Kallen was again, simply precious at the end. She now takes her original personality to school and we also get to see that her mother is well.
Kallen is also wearing the Launch Key of the Guren Nishiki as a necklace now. After the war, I suppose the Guren, like all the other Knightmare Frames, are disposed of or destroyed. The fact that the Launch Key is featured gives me hope that it will be turened into a USB Thumb Drive just like the Lancelot Launch Key, which I have a review of.
Jeremiah’s closing scene made me laugh. The fact that he became an Orange farmer was just so hilarious.
It was indeed sad that the world is left believing that Lelouch was evil. However, at least Kallen, Nunnally and Jeremiah know the truth.
Lastly, this episode was just beautiful. I know that some of you out there would dislike it for various reasons, but this episode managed to accomplish many things. It gave suitable air time to all characters and was able to give a satisfying ending in my opinion.
There are some theories about Lelouch’s eventual end. One of the more popular theories is that C.C. gave him her code and that he is now immortal and that he gave Suzaku Geass to be able to continue his masque as Zero.
When C.C. was talking at the end, her ‘Right, Lelouch’ was supposedly her talking to herself. But if you noticed, she did tilt her head in the direction of the cart driver whom many suspect is indeed Lelouch.
What are your opinions? I would dearly like to hear them. Something I dearly wish Sunrise would do is to create a final epilogue chapter where Lelouch’spossible fate is revealed. Like any other awesome Anime series that I love, there just isn’t enough examples include Lucky Star, Full Metal Panic! and Bamboo Blade. It will be sad, knowing that there will be no more Kallen, Lelouch or Suzaku to brighten my Sunday. It is a strange thing, the end of an Anime. At one point, you have a very satisfying end and a sense of closure. On another hand, you are left with a sense of emptiness. Anime, to me is like a window to numerous character’s lives. Once the series ends, the window gets covered and you are left with only a distant memory. However, an end is an end. I am indeed glad to have shared this wonderful journey with all you Geass fans out there.
