Not because I think it sucks or is a trainwreck like everyone else seems to think now, but because everyone else seems to think it sucks and it’s a trainwreck. I mean what’s the point? People have already made up their mind on this series and are just going to end up commenting that it sucks, is poorly written and this and that etc if I bother to take the time to give my thoughts on it anymore. I don’t know about other people, but I’m just trying to get a little enjoyment out of this series while I still have the slim opportunity of a chance to. That can only be done if I just watch it in private and don’t follow any of what anybody say about it on the internet anymore in my opinion. It’s a shame really, but the negativity about the series has really killed it for me in the last few weeks.
I should also mention that on the other side are all the 10/10/epic/greatest show of the season/ever comments which just ring as hollow in terms of the way people claim to enjoy the series to me. Claims of epic perfection without justification being thrown at me also serve to suck the life out watching a show and cheapen it, this has happened in the past. I don’t think I need to mention any series names, because people will already know. Anyway, in other words I feel like everytime I go to watch or talk about Code Geass that I can’t win, because I’m going to be speaking from a ground that only I see to occupy as I try to go over the show with a fine tooth comb mulling out all the good and not so good parts about it and trying to smooth the complicated plotline and character motivations over for myself and others. In short it seems like people just aren’t interested in my POV at this stage and just want to watch for the “epic” feel or to see a “trainwreck”.
As such this week I’m going to be mulling over whether I want to continue to blog any of it, or just to finish it up for myself. Or even whether I want to continue blogging for that matter as like I said it’s just not fun anymore with all the negativity and insincerity in the blogosphere, and that doesn’t just go for Code Geass, that goes for in general. It’s been 1 year and a couple months and maybe it’s time to say goodbye. As I said I’ll be thinking this over throughout the week.
