Jeremiah Gottwald. Now this is an extremely interesting character. At first I thought him to be a bit annoying, but in the end he was one of those rare people who understood Lelouch's goal and supported him with all they had, just like Shirley did. He was loyal till the very end, and that's what I admire, loyalty. I also loved his backstory. I was really cool that he used to serve lady Marianne. Anyway, an amazing character, kudos to creators. Oh and my favourite bit was seeing Jeremiah working in an ORANGE farm at the end of season two. QQ
Lelouch vi Britannia. Finally! I left him for the end, because there is just so much to say, I feel like words are not going to suffice. Lelouch/Zero has become my favourite character of all time.
Lelouch, a boy who was abandoned by his father, who lost his mother, and whose sister became unable to see or walk. And finally when he gets the mysterious power of Geass he decides to take revenge against Britannia and his father for the sake of his only sister Nunnally, so that they finally can leave in peace without being afraid of being spotted and then killed. He fully realises that this is going to be a tough ride, and that he can't go forward and further ahead without getting his hands messed up in blood. He has to kill, he has to order people to kill. But he manages somehow to gain a lot of things.
I think that Lelouch is a tragic character, and yet a hero. His tragedy is simple: people didn't understand him, people betrayed him. PEOPLE. He trusted those who surrounded him, and yet they couldn't find in themselves to follow his lead.
For me Nunnally's betrayal is the most painful one, but it is essential to realise that this one thing made Lelouch open his eyes, and see that the world is full of many people who deserve a better life, that the world needs liberation from the rule of Britannian Empire. He sacrificed his life for the sake of this.
At the very end we see C.C. talking with Lelouch, and even though I want to believe that he is alive and well, I choose to think that Lelouch died. He was too tired of this world, and he decided to throw away his life and by that give a new chance to everyone for a better life, for a better future.
And even though that future won't last forever, because people are greedy and treacherous beings, what Lelouch did was a step to a brighter life. He is forever my hero...
I rate this anime 10/10 because it can't be otherwise. It's by no means overrated, it's not just another anime. The plot is deep, and serious, it makes you think. This is what's important about a story.
Gosh, it took me over a month to write this review, and there are still so many things I want to say, but I simply cannot find the words to express those thoughts and feelings. I'll just end this here or else it will take me another one month to publish the post.
Hope you enjoyed the read~
If you haven't watched Code Geass well you have to :P
See you soon~
