Are you fan of Code Geass? Well, Team Anchester is not, and Matthew is ready to explain why, and its not because the series isn’t fun or engaging or interesting—its because Lelouch is “a man without a chest.” Listen in to see what that means in this episode that continues our weeklong theme of loneliness. We also invite your feedback, and especially want to hear from Code Geass fans. Let us know why Code Geass is a better series than we give it credit for!

And we want your feedback as well! Each week we’ll ask a question on the podcast and feature your answers the next time that team rolls around. Here’s this week’s CQ (Cast Question): What do you think of Code Geass? Do you like it? Why? Feel free to inform us using information from Lelouch of the Re;surrection if you’ve seen it.
- The quote from C.S. Lewis that Matthew emphasizes, “The head rules the belly through the chest…”, comes from his work, The Abolition of Man.
- By the way, our writers TWWK and R86 (from Ask Sensei) aren’t particularly fans of Code Geass either, though their thoughts dwell more on Euphemia than Lelouch or C.C.
- asdfa Hebrews 2:17-18 and Hebrews 4:15
- However, guest poster Jeskaiangel use the same Euphie episode to make some excellent points about mind control and abuse.
- Want to revisit Code Geass or watch it for the first time? You have a few options. You can stream it through Funimation or Crunchyroll, purchase the series on DVD / BD, or purchase the movie trilogy, which truncates the show.
