I'm going to have to make a different post for the translated interviews I save from GameFAQs
since the formatting of the old post got screwed along the way and is very finicky with < > tags now.You know the deal. Translations not mine, done by Celiss. Visit link party on dudes.These are also posted further down in the section for "Ura de Net Geass" but I wanted to include them so I could point and laugh:
- Yoshino ended up writing the script for episode 19; supposedly he requested to do it, saying "Oh well, if (Okouchi) wants me to write a script, I might as well do the island arc." (he's more or less the fanservice supervisor for this show) According to him (and the Newtype Taniguchi + Fu-kuyama interview), this was how Lelouch's trap was supposed to work: Lelouch successfully digs a proper hole --> However, a boar appears behind him --> Lelouch tries to Geass it: "Lelouch Vi Britannia orders you to SIT!" --> Geass doesn't work on animals --> Lulu Quality Tragedy (Wait, isn't this just like that one fancomic? o__O) However, Taniguchi changed it all, telling Yoshino: "Well, in the first place, Lelouch isn't capable of digging such a hole...
Awww, I love that fanart. I really want to see Lelouch get PWNED by a boar. But how would dear Euphie save him? But Taniguchi's conclusion is still the best.
- The reason why the writers made Kallen stand on Gawain's shoulder instead of getting into the two-seater cockpit with Lelouch in episode 19: "There's no way Kallen will hand over the 2nd-pilot position to anyone else once she's in there." Good point.
True, but would Kallen stand against Zero is the question here.( Some quotes from the Stage 8 Audio Commentary and the novel. Most allow me to poke fun at the boy. )
