Code Geass R2 – Sound Story Episode 02
Why can’t the anime be as great as the sound stories? It’s sort of frustrating. The other thing that’s frustrating is how the Suzaku I LOVE is intact in the sound stories yet in the anime he’s competely … ugh. What are you doing Sunrise?! If they animated a full 26 episode season of Code Geass sound stories I’d watch it and buy the damn DVDs to show my full support.
The character song included in the SS was Lulu’s, i.e. Fukuyama Jun‘s.
As usual, there are two drama s in the sound story. The first was “Hadaka no Lelouch” which bluntly translates to “Naked Lelouch“. For some reason, Millay’s still in Ashford in this SS and is desperate have one of the guys be a nude model after Rolo says he modeled for the art club just like Lulu before him (remember the episode in the first season?). The entire track, the student council are debating and arguing over who should be the model. First Lulu, then Rolo, then Rivalz, then Suzaku and back again until Xino shows up and is tricked into being the model. Poor guy, doesn’t even know what hit him. As usual, I was laughing the entire way. Rolo and Lelouch’s brother moments are so entertaining. And then there’s Suzaku! Oh, Suzaku. I was so happy to hear Sakurai’s happy Suzaku voice. It felt like ages since I last heard Suzaku like that. It made me forget why I even hated the asshole in the first place.
The second drama was … crack and the most un/canon thing ever. Suzaku (through an embarrassing but hilarious ceremony) accidentally summoned a powerful demon voiced by the Emperor’s seiyuu Wakamoto Norio. The characters present all take turns trying to defeat him and fail until C.C saves the day.
So what did we have in this track? Anya cosplaying a mini-skirted miko, Pizza-loving C.C (I miss her) … Oh yeah, there was Anya, C.C, Kaguya and Tianzi arguing about who should be the sacrifice to the monster. Xing-ke, Xino, Rolo and Lulu were all present as well. The insane part is how all the men except for Lulu are blown away. Ha, sound stories are the only place Lulu’s left with all the women. Unbelievable. Should I take it the writer for the sound stories is a different person from the one writing the anime’s script?
And now I’m desperately searching for the third sound story because of this.
Sailor Cornelia? Delinquent Charles? Megane Lulu? … Oh dear
