Hmm... I accept, on the condition that I'm still permitted to eat Saji's pizza. He's lousy at doing stressful things, but damn can that man-boy cook. ...Hey, that's what we can do, harass him into getting out of the way while encouraging him to make the world a better place by cooking.

...But, throwing things works too. 8)

Little non-sequitor from the unofficial Sheryl fanclub, but why exactly were people saying that Shoji Kawamori was trolling the fans?

That seems like an odd reason. It's certainly not the first time a love triangle has gone unresolved, and besides. In the end Alto ended up with his one true love. The Sky. :wink:

I don't know really, but the real reason seems is because the story didn't go the way people wanted it to.

That seem recidulous to me. Just because the story didnt go the way some fans wanted it to it doesnt mean that the director is trolling them. If they dont like it they should try to make an anime themselves.

That really irritates me. Alot of hard work goes into making an anime and just because it didnt go the way they wanted it to they say its crap. Thats complete bs.

Talk about immature. Sure, Code Geass didn't quite go how I would have ideally wanted it. But I'm not complaining, I loved it too much. The same goes for Macross F. If anything, between Frontier and 7, all I was able to figure out about Shoji Kawamori is that he has a good sense of irony.

I agree. I really enjoyed Macross F and Code Geass as well. I'm with you. They didnt go the way I wanted them to but I still enjoyed them.

It was a very well-done sequence IMO, with the direction and the music all coming together nicely. Heck, it was about a week before I could actually listen to "Madder Sky" (the song that plays when "Zero" confronts Lelouch) or "Continued Story" (the song that plays over the epilogue) without choking up.
I cried at the end of the episode of well, as well as during the podcast. Not to mention just thinking about it while typing this post. I could not say personally that this is a happy ending for Lelouch so much as a bittersweet one at best.

people talk about the ultimate sacrifice being to give your life, but Lelouch gave so much more then that...

He also gave up any respect held for him or his actions by all but 4 people
