That's part of the fun, its a tv show not a movie you shouldn't expect every episode to advance the plot at breakneck pace. It also serves as a contrast between the dark side of Lelouch's life and the brighter side, which makes all the sacrifices he makes all the more compelling to the viewer.>Uhhr Duhr 4D chess characters that see 20 moves ahead because they can (this is one of the biggest problems)
That's literally only Lelouch (and Schneizel to a lesser extent). You wouldnt read Ender's Game and complain about Ender and Dink being geniuses would you?>The plot doesn't go deep in the themes presented through the story doing a very superficial and childish take of everything
There's a shitton of themes on politics and Japan's status in general, with allegories including but not limited to the effects of war, linking back to WW2's effect on Japan.>No symbolism, allegories, no rhetoric tools to at least make the shit more "pretty"
There's a shitton of symbolism, the entire character arc of Suzaku, Kallen, Shirley, Rolo, revolves around symbolism. A ton of geass itself is symbolic, and not just the imagery C.C shows us but the power itself, how it relates to the characters who have it and their mindset.
