More stuff on Code Geass R2. Heed this warning. Reading any further means that you agreed on knowing some of the possible spoilers of the story. Alright now. Code Geass R2, as many would know, is a year jump from its first season. Yet this second season have many things going on that many would wonder what had really happened to the whole story. Here are some of the key events of things to come.
- Lelouch has a younger brother? Honestly this person was never mentioned in the first season and having him introduced seems rather forced into. I’m not sure if he is even his biological brother or not because Lelouch only have other half-siblings, but there is a good chance that he might be.
- Lelouch has a slightly longer hair and somewhat looks more gentle. I don’t what is this suggesting but I’m guessing that he might have lost his memory somewhere along the line. He might have even lost his Geass though I would see this unlikely to happen.
- More new Knighmare Frames and now they have Vincent as their latest addition. Vincent is modeled after Lancelot, poised to be used for mass production. Speaking of Lancelot, now Lancelot can fly. Also new is the Knights of the Round who are supposed to the elite team of Knightmare pilots and not so surprising, Suzaku is part of the team. And he’s the only Eleven to ever join the team.
- Nunally’s fate is unknown but if things are going as what the manga expected, she may return with a Geass. And if she can use Geass, that of course would mean that she is no longer blind.
On another story, Malaysia had recently gone through its general election. Many echoes that this is the most unimaginable election Malaysia has ever had, and the oppositions are happy to tout their democratic victory. Well on a glance, nothing much had changed. The main coalition party, the National Front, remains the governing party of the Parliament but this time, they are losing their majority as the oppositions are gaining stronger grounds in the country’s political platform. I’m trying to be unbiased here but here’s a fact. The National Front, which consists of many smaller group of race-oriented parties, had been controlling Malaysia ever since Independence Day. As time goes on, more political parties emerged, promising better racial unity that Malaysians are having trouble with until today. The National Front being the government, denied any disunity within the population, a fact of which they have been always tried to ignore.
Enter the so-called Opposition Front, that are made of Democratic Action Party, National Justice Party, and Pan-Islamic Party. The strongest among the three is Democratic Action Party and together with National Justice Party, they resounded a hope of a better Malaysia where racial discord is a relic of the past and equality to all in terms of rights and economy gain. Their only problem is that they never had a chance to properly govern a state or the country as a whole. However that does not mean that the National Front is doing any lesser. They come with many megaprojects that are necessary to secure the country’s biggest ambition – to be a developed nation by the year 2020. The problem is that they are moving too fast to the extent that they ignore the very foundation of this country, which is racial unity. I know that I sounded a little biased to the opposition side but I have to be clear that I am politically neutral on this matter. As for the election outcome, the National Front won by a simple two-thirds majority over the country but the setback was losing 5 out of 13 constitutionalized states. Among them are Selangor and Penang, both of which are wealthy industrial states.
