This One Is For Haesslich (Ashford Academy May Be In Shambles But The Show Is Doing Well)

Looks Like The Side Facing The Explosion Took A Hit After All

We were wrong Haesslich, Ashford’s going to need some renovations. :p I guess we saw the other side of the school in episode 19.  Also apparently the dorms are gone in the blast as well.  Isn’t it just a little depressing, that whole reference to episode 7.  Happiness might be glass, pretty and idealistic, but glass is fragile and it just got shattered by the bomb.  I think some people might be right that the only people who are going to be standing on this ground watching fireworks come the end of the series are the people who weren’t there in the original picture.  Of course that would mean Nunally has to be alive and I’m still sticking to me theory that she got away on an alternate ship and the series homepage just covers characters assumed to be dead at the moment of the latest episode.

In other Geass related news, according to Oricon, Code Geass R2 Volume 1 has sold 26,000 DVD’s in it’s first week alone coming in 1st place on the anime related DVD and Blue Ray charts this week no contest.  I guess that sort of makes up for the ratings.

    Need to worry more about model sales and associated merchandise (manga, etc) than the DVD sales, but at least they mean that they’re not completely in the crapper as far as audience goes.

    @Haesslich: Code Geass hasn’t had that many model toys out to begin with, from what I remember. Certainly nothing compared to what the average Gundam show has made available, so I’d think it doesn’t depend quite as much on that.

    But yes, it’s not all about DVDs -even though that’s nothing to sneeze at either- and other merchandise sales do matter as well.

    There’s four lines of manga out there, games, and they’re releasing more models this season due to the greater variety of Frames. There’s also the soundtracks, the sponsorships…
