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:
Eden of The East: Ato Saizo, a famous business leaves his legacy in cash and a giant computer system (Juiz) to the Selecao who he hopes will find a way to save the country of Japan and it’s future by playing his game.
Gundam 00: Aeolia Schenberg, a famous business man/scientist leaves his legacy in Gundams and a giant computer system (Veda) to Celestial Being who he hopes will find a way to save humanity’s future by following his plan.
Akira Takizawa Taking The Fall, The NEET’s are at peace…or are they
Eden of The East: For the sake of Japan’s stability and the Neets and victims of Careless Monday having someone to blame Takizawa makes himself a villain and takes the fall in having his his memory erased
Setsuna takes the fall, the world is at peace….or is it?
Gundam 00: For the sake of world unity and the fighting powers to have a common enemy Celestial Being makes itself a villain and takes the fall by letting itself be all but destroyed by Ribbons and Alejandro Corner’s GN-X’s.
Mononobe sits comfortably as his missiles are on route for him to win the game. He is the emperor and in control
Eden of The East: It’s not over though, Mononobe hijacks the game and other players and twists the rules in order to find a shortcut to winning and becoming a messiah figure and for a time all but controls Juiz.
Ribbons sits comfortably in control of the Earth Federation as his plans to fulfill the conditions of the plan on his own unfold. He is the emperor
Gundam 00: It’s not over though, Ribbons hijacks the Aeolia’s plan and the Earth Federation which was supposed to be under the indirect watch of Celestial Being and tries to become a messiah figure for humanity and for a time controls Veda.
Ohsugi lays the blame all on Akira despite not knowing the truth
because Saki got involved in Akira’s dangerous lifestyle even though he had no fault in it
Akira and Co. moved to save Ohsugi who he though was in danger
They eventually work it out
Eden of The East: Despite Takizawa’s sacrifice some bitchy emo guy named Ohsugi tries to blame him anyway because he got burned with his girlfriend getting involved with his groups activities….despite the fact that Takizawa tried to save his ass. Eventually he comes around though and helps Takizawa out.
Saji lays the blame on Setsuna despite not knowing the truth
Because Louise got involved in his dangerous lifestyle even though he had no fault in it
Setsuna and Co. Moved to save Saji who was in danger
Gundam 00: Despite Setsuna’s sacrifice some bitchy emo guy named Saji tries to blame him anyway because he got burned with his girlfriend getting enveloped in his groups activities……despite the fact that Setsuna’s comrade Allelujah saved his ass. Eventually he comes around though and helps Setsuna out.
Juiz Is Moved
The NEETs Assist In Helping Akira clear out the missile swarm
Akira puts an end to Mononobe’s last ditch effort
But this tale has yet to end
Eden of The East: Akira Takizawa who has since the beginning been led along by Mononobe manages to steal the game back from him with the help of the Eden group and the NEETs he helped and win it while becoming the true messiah in the process, but the story isn’t over and will be continuing in the movies.
Veda is recovered by Tieria
The Mannequin fleet helping clear out the Gaga Swarm
Setsuna puts an end to Ribbons last ditch effort
But this tale has yet to end
Gundam 00: Setsuna F. Seiei who has since the beginning been led along by Ribbons manages to steal Veda and humanities future back from him with the help of Celestial Being and the Mannequin fleet he helped and win it while becoming the true messiash in the process, but the story isn’t over and will be continuing in the movies.
Special Bonus Comparison:
The Naked Now
Eden of The East: Everybody gets naked for world peace and greater understanding!
The Naked Time
Gundam 00: Everybody gets naked for world peace and greater understanding!
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.
