So I stared watching Code Geass to see what all the fuss was about.

Holy crap.

They basically took every bad anime cliche and genre and mashed it together into some sort of unrepentantly absurd mish-mash of crazy characters, retarded fanservice, faggotry, and plot twists that would make Death Note blush. Speaking of which, the Death Note comparisons are apt. Lelouch tries to be epic and grandiose like Light but is so totally inept and misguided that I swore he was supposed to be a parody of the character. Suzaku was probably conceived by every single annoying cliche and handing it to the production staff. I only finished the first series so far, and those last 4 episodes were some of the most absurd I've ever seen. It's like a trainwreck.

It's also simultaneously the best and worst thing I've seen this year. And I can't stop watching it. R2, here I go!
