OMFG and i knew there was something not right about the ending i knew i wasnt wrong for hating it and its because Taniguchi the creator and director of code geass SAYS CODE GEASS R2 WAS A COMPLETED TRAINWRECK.

He didnt plan code geass R2 he had a completly different story planned for Code Geass R2 but because of circumstaces because of those GREEDY SONSOFABITCHES WE WERE ROBBED OF THE ORIGINAL CODE GEASS R2 STORY AND ENDING.

THE ENDING WE GOT WAS JUST MADE FOR HIGH VIEWER RATINGS AND TO SELL A BUNCH IF GODDAMN DVDS

HERES THE INTERVIEW WITH TANIGUCHI: ENJOY KNOWING THAT AT LEAST THE ENDING WE GOT WAS BOGUS BS CRAP SHITTING......


Taniguchi on Geass: “NOT AS PLANNED”
Tamaki’s Girlfriend posted a write-up about part of a Taniguchi interview (Taniguchi is the guy who’s directing Geass) at a board which must not-be-named etc. This is just about part of the interview, not the whole thing. In the part of the article she wrote about, Taniguchi talks about how Code Geass has been a total saga of NOT AS PLANNED for Taniguchi.

She said she didn’t mind if I re-posted what she wrote, so here it is, though she can’t answer any questions about the rest of the interview as she is avoiding spoilerific places like here. Hit the read more for her write-up~

The following is Tamaki’s Girlfriend’s write-up, as it was originally posted in English. There is no English translation of the interview itself. Tamaki’s Girlfriend read it in Japanese then wrote about it in English. I modified no part of it. Anything that seems like an opinion is her opinion, not mine.

Reading Taniguchi’s interview in the recently published Code Geass Roman Album really depresses me. Taniguchi = Lelouch, indeed. Code Geass has been one long string of “NOT AS PLANNED D:”s for him and the production staff. Apparently the decision to give R2 the new Sun5 slot (Takeda Seiji’s idea, after rejecting the original Lelouch of the Rebellion?) was more of a curse than a blessing to Taniguchi, because his plan had been to continue where things left off in episode 25, which would have been possible had he been allowed to keep the same timeslot in October 2007. Producer Kawaguchi wasn’t exaggerating when he said in the early R2 promotion articles that the Code Geass team had to throw out all their existing plans for season 2 and start all over because of the new timeslot.

Might explain the decision to cut Suzaku’s relation to the Geass (which was supposed to have been something deeper than just “he has the potential”), Kallen’s father (and Naoto?), and Cecile’s relationship with Suzaku, among other things.

Also, Taniguchi was seriously considering leaving the anime industry as a form of apology to the fans when it turned out that production was way behind schedule and they had to use up two slots for recaps. Season 1 was supposed to have ended with episode 23, but fortunately there was enough fan support for the Sunrise execs to greenlight episodes 24+25. The episode 25 ending is the ending Taniguchi planned to show from the very beginning; according to him, he once thought of using it as the opening scene of Stage 1 (which would have made the whole of season 1 one huge flashback; I think that’s actually pretty cool)

Taniguchi planned the season 1 ending with the firm belief that he could jump right back into the story 6 months later and tell the story to the same audience, so when he was informed of the new timeslot, Taniguchi was completely crushed. He was asked to write a short message to his fans for the special screening pamphlet back then, and apparently all he wanted to write was a letter of apology, which wasn’t allowed. Neither was he allowed to explain the situation to the fans, which is understandable from a Sunrise exec point of view, but not quite fair towards Taniguchi, IMO. When his colleague

yeah it was okay until the ending few episodes which ruined the whole thing for me i mean that kind of an ending for code geass is a never never. i mean the code geass story was completly changed the entire story we got from R2 when u think about it was bogus i mean u really cant like R2 when the story of R2 eventualy leads up to lelouchs so oh tre tre corny and bullshit death and amibigious open ending.For me the ending where he killed himself and how touching the directors tried to make it seem as they made everyone hate him was totaly crap for one the morals of story is entirely mixed up and the story was sort of a story of morals too on some point like whether suzaku was right or him? like i bet taniguchi never meant to make lelouch seem like the hero he was made out to be in the end because thats just wrong.Apart from so many other bad things i could say about the ending i mean his last words when he was dying to nunualy was fucking" i will destroy the world and i will recreate it" god i mean the sunrise executives even made his last word to nunualy some stupid slogan.I mean i guess the ending was also meant to make the viewer hate all the other characters because they hated lelouch till his death and even more so for suzaku who became zero because he killed lelouuch and at the end he still had those same twisted ideals of his as proved by the fight with kallen which is completly bogus too i mean why make all the viewers hate the other characters?why make everyone except lelouch seem like a useless piece of shit on code geass?plus i mean lelouch the great emperor the smartest person in the world, the person with the strongest Will in the world which translates to geass, is to be in hiding and live a life on running away all alone for ever for only C.C? i mean jesus christ how depressing! its almost not a good thing he might still be alive because hed be alone and only with C.C herding sheep for however long that may be.

oh yeah and dont forget the crappy bullshit endings for everyone else, tamaki with his own bar? oh how orginal!, todoh and villeta! oh he married that slut bitch! great good for him and all the bastrads that were ungrateful to lelouch.Orange with Anya on a fucking ORANGE PLANTATION for gods sake! just a bunce of baloney.oh and i almost forgot Orange Kun who wasnt actualy supose to be a character in R2 was put in just for ratings so there u go see how muchur shows been manipulated into well god look how the ending turned out.

But still i still reckon code geass is the best anime ever i mean even with all its faults now because of GREEDY SUNRISE no other anime comes close to touching it.

And they didnt even explain C.Cs ending i mean she was all i want to die but she smiling in the end wtf?because shes with lelouch?well only one of them can be immortal so the other is going to be miserably lonely for the rest of eternity when the other ones dies sooner or later even if lelouch was alive then. i mean the whole geass thing is not resolved how can C.C be free of geass?or did she give it to lelouch? how can he be free of it? or does he want to be alive even after all the characters of code geass rot?i mean in the end the whole geass thing is still just unessolved and not even proeperly explained.

oh and this is just random i noticed how the pink crane in the last scene of code geass R2 was symbolic it represented geass which u know how geass looks so similar to the crane and how the order of the black knights symbol similary also look like a crane,i think the crane in the last scene was meant to sum up the point of the entire series which is about the wish nunualy made when she held the pink crane in season 1 ep3 and as a sign that lelouch was with C.C and he had kept that pink crane from nunaly as a momento of her, the pink crane symbolised his promise to her. and even after all that ranting i dont think i can completly hate the ending of R2 because at least one thing came true at the end which was right that is that freedom and a peaceful world was established.and even that wasnt really shown in the ending so i bet taniguchis ending would have been so much better on that level too.

oh my god lol iv written like one page i think im goina stop myself now

well I'm kind of thinking of the fact that lelouch's burden is him being immortal. I mean on ep 25. C.C said that "lelouch, by casting geass to others you..." the part when she was praying. I was thinking of the fact that the price of lelouch in exchange of using geass to others was to live in the world in eternity (with C.C perhaps.?). well I think it was a fair price (well C.C wanted to die after living for so long).. But that's just what I think..

oh my god lol iv written like one page i think im goina stop myself now


I agree I still think its the best anime ever but I have a bunch of complains like for example Gino when the hell did he decide to change sides and anlya um yeah her original memories? and I felt that alot of things in one episode could have been a episode separately instead of compressing everything into one -_- I was disappointed that suzaku relationship with the geass wasn't more meaningful and lastly what fuck with ohgi and vilatta???? That one love story that was utterly stupid and pointless to me I hated that ohgi was in charge of the black knights again and we all saw how useless of a leader the guy is and how pointless he was to this point in time. Also what about the the guy who invents things with that soldier girl? (I 4got their names) why wasn't he given screen time at all I enjoyed him in season 1?
Over all as much as I loved the ending on how lelouch died I felt it could have been better I mean change a few things around but ultimately have the same result in him dying so that the world can have a future. To me it makes sense alot of the things he had to do in the series and in the end died for his own sins and everyone elses.

But about his mom? I mean one episode and thats it? thats all we get out of her? nothing else on her life? please SUNRISE WHY DIDN'T YOU LET CODE GEASS END THE WAY IT SHOULD HAVE!!!!!!

Can taniguchi go with another company and continue his take on how it would have gone if he had his way? or atleast release his take in DVD?

Overall I think code geass was the best anime ever in my book ignoring all those complains I have and I feel I won't come across an anime like this again for a long time that will leave me in the edge of my seat and wondering what will happen next and what unexpected thing will happen this time ^_^

overall I give it a 4.5/5 I should start a blog at this rate ^_^

LOL well thank god someone else on this forum seems just as nuts abouts code geass as me i mean its not even 2 weeks after code geass R2s last run and this forum is like almost DEAD i cant believe peole just up and leave the forum as soon as it ends. and i notice that i havent seen much extensive disscussion on this forum only just oh yeah i liked the ending and i hope hes alive from most people.

u know the other day i was thinking we should start a petition on this site with only our screen names and crunchyroll could verify that we have been active member for however long so we could keep our privacy but then again alot of people say they are satified with code geass R2 LIKE WTF WHY? anyways regardless i think we should do the petition and i bet when more people know about taniguchis interview theyd hcnage theyre mind.


oh yeah and i reckon that code geass R2 was like a complete reset of code geass the story because u remember how at the end of code geass that lelouch had kind of lost his mind and was goina shoot suzaku? and how taniguchi said that that was his ending that he wanted lelouch in the story of R2 to become more dark and eventualy sort of lose his mind i think and not like R2 which i complelty about lelouch being a nice fucking guy because i mean one of the reasons i loved this anime was because of how REAL it was i mean in reality lelouch truning around and dying like a hero NO FUCKING WAY i mean i think in the begining this was a anime about two conflicting sides of opinions one side with suzaku wantting to have peace without war and another side with lelouch wanting to destroy the world to create peace and i dont think that there was ever supose to be a winner of the two sides but at the end of R2 it made it seem that suzaku had lost when i think the whole point to the story even though we dont get to be happy at how lelouch won was that moral battle i think and WTF i mean lelouch dies like hes almost commiting suicide and hes a fucking HERO???@@@@*@#*&^fuck.dont get the wrong idea because i love lelouchs charcter i loved how he was winning until the end but the end just isnt right u know, i think ill explain later but now i think to keep myself undepressed iv tried to disassociate myself from geass for the past few days so ill get back to that. i think that was taniguchis orginal story and in taniguchis originals story i remember him saying that suzaku had MORE of a connection to geass and he had bigger strong ambitions which means he might have gotten geass i mean we all know he probably would have if it werent for the suddenly story change.


anyways i need to have mid day breakfast because its the holidays and i sleep in until like 1 pm lol sometimes i wonder myself if im causing myself brain damage by sleeping in so late

did u want the ending we got or the one where suzaku and lelouchs amibitions continualy clash? because im thinking that was taniguchis original plan give suzaku geass too so they could clash with each other more or something.

anyways think about the petition i mean itll be cool if we got both endings!

LOL well thank god someone else on this forum seems just as nuts abouts code geass as me i mean its not even 2 weeks after code geass R2s last run and this forum is like almost DEAD i cant believe peole just up and leave the forum as soon as it ends. and i notice that i havent seen much extensive disscussion on this forum only just oh yeah i liked the ending and i hope hes alive from most people.

u know the other day i was thinking we should start a petition on this site with only our screen names and crunchyroll could verify that we have been active member for however long so we could keep our privacy but then again alot of people say they are satified with code geass R2 LIKE WTF WHY? anyways regardless i think we should do the petition and i bet when more people know about taniguchis interview theyd hcnage theyre mind.


oh yeah and i reckon that code geass R2 was like a complete reset of code geass the story because u remember how at the end of code geass that lelouch had kind of lost his mind and was goina shoot suzaku? and how taniguchi said that that was his ending that he wanted lelouch in the story of R2 to become more dark and eventualy sort of lose his mind i think and not like R2 which i complelty about lelouch being a nice fucking guy because i mean one of the reasons i loved this anime was because of how REAL it was i mean in reality lelouch truning around and dying like a hero NO FUCKING WAY i mean i think in the begining this was a anime about two conflicting sides of opinions one side with suzaku wantting to have peace without war and another side with lelouch wanting to destroy the world to create peace and i dont think that there was ever supose to be a winner of the two sides but at the end of R2 it made it seem that suzaku had lost when i think the whole point to the story even though we dont get to be happy at how lelouch won was that moral battle i think and WTF i mean lelouch dies like hes almost commiting suicide and hes a fucking HERO???@@@@*@#*&^fuck.dont get the wrong idea because i love lelouchs charcter i loved how he was winning until the end but the end just isnt right u know, i think ill explain later but now i think to keep myself undepressed iv tried to disassociate myself from geass for the past few days so ill get back to that. i think that was taniguchis orginal story and in taniguchis originals story i remember him saying that suzaku had MORE of a connection to geass and he had bigger strong ambitions which means he might have gotten geass i mean we all know he probably would have if it werent for the suddenly story change.


anyways i need to have mid day breakfast because its the holidays and i sleep in until like 1 pm lol sometimes i wonder myself if im causing myself brain damage by sleeping in so late

did u want the ending we got or the one where suzaku and lelouchs amibitions continualy clash? because im thinking that was taniguchis original plan give suzaku geass too so they could clash with each other more or something.

anyways think about the petition i mean itll be cool if we got both endings!


Holy Shit dude. Does wall of text mean anything to you? I didn't understand half of what was going on in there other than "WHAT THE FUCK!? NO FUCKING WAY! FUCK! FUCK FUCK! CC! LELOUCH DIED!"

Damn. You know this is a forum, you don't have to type so damn fast. If you going to type, write something that people can understand.

I knew about this a long time ago.That's why i was so angry at Sunrise.Those F***ers made season 1 so good and then they spoilt season 2.Sunrise really spoilt the whole Code Geass series.But,Code Geass R2 wasn't half-bad so i forgive them A BIT.Still,i wished I could watch the original code Geass story that was planned by Tawaguchi.


yeah it was okay until the ending few episodes which ruined the whole thing for me i mean that kind of an ending for code geass is a never never. i mean the code geass story was completly changed the entire story we got from R2 when u think about it was bogus i mean u really cant like R2 when the story of R2 eventualy leads up to lelouchs so oh tre tre corny and bullshit death and amibigious open ending.For me the ending where he killed himself and how touching the directors tried to make it seem as they made everyone hate him was totaly crap for one the morals of story is entirely mixed up and the story was sort of a story of morals too on some point like whether suzaku was right or him? like i bet taniguchi never meant to make lelouch seem like the hero he was made out to be in the end because thats just wrong.Apart from so many other bad things i could say about the ending i mean his last words when he was dying to nunualy was fucking" i will destroy the world and i will recreate it" god i mean the sunrise executives even made his last word to nunualy some stupid slogan.I mean i guess the ending was also meant to make the viewer hate all the other characters because they hated lelouch till his death and even more so for suzaku who became zero because he killed lelouuch and at the end he still had those same twisted ideals of his as proved by the fight with kallen which is completly bogus too i mean why make all the viewers hate the other characters?why make everyone except lelouch seem like a useless piece of shit on code geass?plus i mean lelouch the great emperor the smartest person in the world, the person with the strongest Will in the world which translates to geass, is to be in hiding and live a life on running away all alone for ever for only C.C? i mean jesus christ how depressing! its almost not a good thing he might still be alive because hed be alone and only with C.C herding sheep for however long that may be.

oh yeah and dont forget the crappy bullshit endings for everyone else, tamaki with his own bar? oh how orginal!, todoh and villeta! oh he married that slut bitch! great good for him and all the bastrads that were ungrateful to lelouch.Orange with Anya on a fucking ORANGE PLANTATION for gods sake! just a bunce of baloney.oh and i almost forgot Orange Kun who wasnt actualy supose to be a character in R2 was put in just for ratings so there u go see how muchur shows been manipulated into well god look how the ending turned out.

But still i still reckon code geass is the best anime ever i mean even with all its faults now because of GREEDY SUNRISE no other anime comes close to touching it.

And they didnt even explain C.Cs ending i mean she was all i want to die but she smiling in the end wtf?because shes with lelouch?well only one of them can be immortal so the other is going to be miserably lonely for the rest of eternity when the other ones dies sooner or later even if lelouch was alive then. i mean the whole geass thing is not resolved how can C.C be free of geass?or did she give it to lelouch? how can he be free of it? or does he want to be alive even after all the characters of code geass rot?i mean in the end the whole geass thing is still just unessolved and not even proeperly explained.

oh and this is just random i noticed how the pink crane in the last scene of code geass R2 was symbolic it represented geass which u know how geass looks so similar to the crane and how the order of the black knights symbol similary also look like a crane,i think the crane in the last scene was meant to sum up the point of the entire series which is about the wish nunualy made when she held the pink crane in season 1 ep3 and as a sign that lelouch was with C.C and he had kept that pink crane from nunaly as a momento of her, the pink crane symbolised his promise to her. and even after all that ranting i dont think i can completly hate the ending of R2 because at least one thing came true at the end which was right that is that freedom and a peaceful world was established.and even that wasnt really shown in the ending so i bet taniguchis ending would have been so much better on that level too.

oh my god lol iv written like one page i think im goina stop myself now


I agree I still think its the best anime ever but I have a bunch of complains like for example Gino when the hell did he decide to change sides and anlya um yeah her original memories? and I felt that alot of things in one episode could have been a episode separately instead of compressing everything into one -_- I was disappointed that suzaku relationship with the geass wasn't more meaningful and lastly what fuck with ohgi and vilatta???? That one love story that was utterly stupid and pointless to me I hated that ohgi was in charge of the black knights again and we all saw how useless of a leader the guy is and how pointless he was to this point in time. Also what about the the guy who invents things with that soldier girl? (I 4got their names) why wasn't he given screen time at all I enjoyed him in season 1?
Over all as much as I loved the ending on how lelouch died I felt it could have been better I mean change a few things around but ultimately have the same result in him dying so that the world can have a future. To me it makes sense alot of the things he had to do in the series and in the end died for his own sins and everyone elses.

But about his mom? I mean one episode and thats it? thats all we get out of her? nothing else on her life? please SUNRISE WHY DIDN'T YOU LET CODE GEASS END THE WAY IT SHOULD HAVE!!!!!!

Can taniguchi go with another company and continue his take on how it would have gone if he had his way? or atleast release his take in DVD?

Overall I think code geass was the best anime ever in my book ignoring all those complains I have and I feel I won't come across an anime like this again for a long time that will leave me in the edge of my seat and wondering what will happen next and what unexpected thing will happen this time ^_^

I really want to see "real" scenario of Code Geass.
First season was OMG, this is the one of the best anime i've ever seen (other is Eva) with complex story
But R2 was bleh, not the ending only, but the animation, soundtrack (many have no sound)...

I hope Gundam 00 season 2 not like this
