Eden of The East Finale=Gundam 00?

Don’t know what the gg half time break is talking about with regard to Code Geass R2 comparisons, but so many parts of this finale made me feel like I was watching Gundam 00 without the mecha and with a different goal and a smaller scope that I’m wondering what the deal is:

Ato Saizo

The Naked Now

Eden of The East:  Everybody gets naked for world peace and greater understanding!

The Naked Time

Heck even the music was starting to sound a bit like Gundam 00’s during Saki’s breakdown of Akira’s actions.  Make of it all what you will folks, I’ll just continue to wait on the movies for both of these fine franchises.

    …I hate you now, you know.

    Kenji Kawaii is the music composer of Gundam 00 and Eden of the East.

    @Sol: I’m used to being hated, wouldn’t be playing the blogging game if I let it bother me.

    @Math**: Wow that explains a lot then.

    Some of it matches most of it doesn’t. :(

    Akira taking the fall for careless monday is nothing like Celestial beings end at 00 S1. Celestial being didn’t want to be defeated.

    Akira wasn’t “led around” by Monobe. I think especially here you are extremely stretching the situations in order to make them alike when they aren’t at all.

    Saki was never in any real danger compared to Louise who was badly hurt. Many other people were killed by Celestial beings actions whereas Ohsugi only had a suspicion that Akira was “a criminal”. The only real reason Ohsugi didn’t like Akira is because he was with Saki.

    I don’t see how Juiz being moved by a third party is anything like Veda being recovered by Tieria.

    The Geass R2 comparisons come in because of the sacrificial nature of Akira taking the fall for world peace on purpose. Celestial being never intended to be defeated.

    However I must say that you did well in pointing out many of the similarities that did exist, so its not all negative :).

    Ah, so thats why when the advertisement for the movie appeared it felt strangely familiar somehow…:p

    But you know, the whole “one guy taking the fall for others” scenario seems pretty popular these days. Maybe Code Geass and Lelouch left a big impression on the anime industry. xD

    Oh please. That’s an insult to Eden of the East.

  7. 7 Kaioshin Sama July 4, 2009 at 5:53 am

    @wyn: Uhuh….you know I don’t care whatever the reasoning behind this statement is right?

    If you are a real estate professional, be really careful in dealing with KoRes Corp. in Weston Florida. Tulio Rodriguez & Monica Cataluna-Shand are shysters and look for anyway to steal ones customers. They attempt to steal your client by requesting their contact information and later contact them behind your back to get them to deal with them directly.

    Reineerax why would you put such an advertisement in a Anime blog? retarded.
