Before I start I would like to say the following: please, please, please don’t read this blog post if you’ve yet to watch both series of Code Geass, as it contains major spoilers that will ruin the entire franchise for you. For those of you who have performed your civic duty and watched this awesome anime, grab yourself some tissues and proceed!
#24 What Scene Shocked Me the Most?
Mitty’s Transformation – Made in Abyss

#21 Who Is Your Favourite Goofball Character?
I’ll keep today’s blog post short and sweet – partly because I’m writing this on the back of a nine hour shift at work (which began at 6am this morning), so I’m not sure how coherent I will be, and partly because it’s actually extremely difficult to explain why you find something funny. Humour is so objective and during the painful process of dissecting a joke, it really stops being funny! But, hey, I’ll give this my best shot. Nichijou’s Yuuko is, by far, my favourite goofball character. Here’s why:
