From time to time, a reader will send us a question about our thoughts on certain series or various ideas related to religion. For instance, Albert asked about iDOLM@STER, leading to one of our most popular posts.
In an effort to encourage further questions, I recently added an “Ask the Staff” button to our toolbar.
Do you have questions for us in regards to anime or manga? Christianity? Religion? Or anything else in between or all around? Please feel free to send it to us.
Esther, another reader, recently sent us this query:
Have you guys heard/watch/considered “Code Geass”? I think the ending had a great impact and I also think that it can relate to “sacrifice for a loved one” or just “sacrifice”. It’s a short series with just 25 ep. in 2 seasons. (50 in all) Great action scenes and connections.
Thanks for the question, Esther.
Indeed, most of us have watched (or are in the middle of watching) Code Geass. In fact, it’s one of Zeroe4’s favorite series.
I’m not as big of a fan. Well, more accurately, I was a huge fan until one particular scene affected me so deeply (in a negative way) that I dropped the show:
I turned the computer off and proceeded to be angry for days, thinking of little but this episode. I never did finish the series, and never will.
I’ve read a summary of the ending, though, and I agree with your analysis – maybe one day one of our writers will address this strong connection.
In the meantime, stay tuned! Your question is very timely because “The Professor” (R86) is working on a post for the series, which should be going up soon. Please check it out – he’s a gifted writer and I’m sure you’ll enjoy his thoughts.
And for everyone else, please send any questions you have our way!
