The Women of Code Geass - The Epitome of Girl Power

Posted by : zahid
The Women of Code Geass

Over a decade had passed since Code Geass - a legendary anime of this millennium had concluded perfectly in a very dramatic and heartbreaking finale. All these years, it is one of the anime titles that endure the test of time and still widely praised until today. In fact, a 3-part theatrical release had been done to re-told the story of a boy who dream of vengeance, a king who destroy the world and created it anew. The movies made some slight changes in the story to give way to the Code Geass' sequel - another theatrical release titled - Code Geass: Lelouch of Re;surrection.

Code Geass - CC
C.C. - the witch who started it all and bestow Lelouch geass power.

Throughout the course of Code Geass story, we had seen differing philosophies and principles, characters that plays significant roles for the plot's progress. I'll say Code Geass is among the anime shows with so many characters and everyone of them exist for a specific reason to achieve the bigger picture of the story. Among these characters, it is noticeable that there are plenty of female characters who really play's vital role for a bloody and violent anime such as Code Geass. They're not just mere ornament in the story instead they are individuals with characters, power, and essential to the anime's plot as a whole.

Code Geass - Princess Euphemia
Princess Euphemia - whose existence and demise plays a vital part in Code Geass story


So, let's talk about these women from Code Geass - some of them even shakes the very foundation of its story, while some display an inspiring traits for women of today's generation. Let's start our list of powerful women from Code Geass as follows:

C.C.

C.C.
Lelouch, do you know why snow is white? Snow is white, because it's forgotten what color it's supposed to be. - C.C.
The immortal witch C.C. is first in our list, a woman of substance and mystery. She lived her life with deep ambiguity and is nonchalant towards humanity. This witch isn't your ordinary female protagonist. Despite of having no special abilities aside from the power of bestowing geass and eating pizza, C.C. a beauty whose personality is as deep as history and as ambiguous as the fleeting human lives. Well, most of the well-known and favorite anime quotes from Code Geass were affiliated with her. She's a savior of our king, and a partner in crime of our rebel.


Kallen Kōzuki / Kallen Stadtfeld

Code Geass - Kallen Stadtfeld
Kallen Stadtfeld

A woman of spirit, principles and heart for her people. An able fighter, technically I think it is safe to say that she's the most skilled knightmare pilot in the series after the final clash that she had against Suzaku. She's a trustworthy friend who'll never abandon her comrades. Throughout the series, we had witnessed her growth as an individual, a major character, and key power to her allies.


Euphemia li Britannia

Code Geass - Euphemia li Britannia
Euphemia li Britannia
It's not that I want an ideal country or great justice or anything complicated like that. I just want to see people smiling. - Euphemia li Britannia
This princess is still the biggest regret of the series and could've been its almost downfall. As a fan, I am personally heartbroken and still can't move on with her tragic story. However, she's probably the greatest contributor on Code Geass' plot, especially on the story's progress. She's a woman of virtue, substance, and great charisma. An able leader who can inspire her people. If I may say something brave, Euphemia is the Lacus Clynes (from Gundam Seed/Seed Destiny) of Code Geass. A woman whose power does not rely on brute force but her principles and charisma.


Cornelia li Britannia

Code Geass - Cornelia li Britannia
Cornelia li Britannia

A strong woman both outside and inside. She's someone that I used to hate during the early stages of Code Geass story until that very moment that her brother Schniezel betrayed her. At some point, a hint of her soft sides had been seen in the story but not exploited. Technically, speaking she's among the most skilled female knightmare pilots. She, sure is a tough opponent that our king Lelouch had face off during the early part of the story.


Kaguya Sumeragi

Code Geass - Kaguya Sumeragi
Kaguya Sumeragi

She's quite one hell of a fiend, Kaguya is definitely one of my personal favorite characters of Code Geass despite of how imbalance and impartial her character is in the story. She's a woman of deep personality who can't be easily read by other characters or even by viewers. She's intelligent, witty, and politically enlightened despite of her young age. That "I wanna marry Zero" shenanigans is probably one of my favorite part of her. She usually use her young age and cute appearance to deceived people while manipulating things on her own will to achieve her goals which is also benevolent at the end as she's also able to help other people. I think she's an innocent and at the same time wicked character, who's mature enough to control her emotions and look at the bigger picture.


Shirley Fenette

Code Geass - Shirley Fenette
Shirley Fenette

A woman with so much devotion and faith to his friends and the goodness in them. Shirley might be your typical female protagonist from different anime series, but she's more than just her pretty face. She had that soft spot that makes her a fragile but lovable character in the story.


Nunnally Lamperouge / Nunnally vi Britannia

Code Geass - Nunnally vi Britannia
Nunnally vi Britannia

Lelouch younger sister, she's a virtuous woman who despite of young age withstood so many emotional and mental hardships. She had survived those darker days and able to use her experience from those chapter of her life to be a brilliant leader of her country. A loving and charismatic young lady, Nunnally had been a powerful entity in the story as she had been the only reason why Lelouch had been fighting. All of this story of rebellion, vengeance, and sacrifices were all of her sake, so she could live in a bright future and with all the evil deeds that her brother committed, she has to carry that burden from deep within.


Rakshata Chawla

Code Geass - Rakshata Chawla
Rakshata Chawla

A genius on her own field, she's that scientist that goes beyond the typical nerdy type. The sharp of her tongue on devouring other people soul with her words is truly admirable even when enemies, her spirit couldn't be easily faze. Rakshata is someone that today's people could say as "cool" and "unorthodox" but she's a woman who knows her strength and use it to help her allies and achieve their goals.


Marianne vi Britannia

Code Geass - Marianne vi Britannia
Marianne vi Britannia

Lelouch and Nunnaly's mother. The fifth wife of the Emperor of Britannia and a very influential character in Code Geass' story who affected the lives of many characters especially those from Britannian Imperial Family (Lelouch other siblings). She's a brilliant and astonishing knightmare pilot whom Cornelia admired so much. She's a formidable figure in the royal family and thus, she's a threat to the relatives of her husband which led to her fake demise. In the latter part of the story, we had also seen her manipulative side and how powerful is her influence towards her children.


That ends our list of exceptional women from Code Geass who made its story powerful and even more enchanting. These were women who may have differing views about politics, war, friendship, and love but they all have that behavior that makes them unique and standout among the rest. They are empowered and enlightened women in the era of war and political instability which could be easily shakes by men of different virtues and agenda.

So, which of these women is your favorite and which one do you think should be added on this list. Actually, I still have some more names on my mind but I couldn't just compare their value or impact on the story of Code Geass to these women. Anyway, please let us know of your thoughts.

Battle Through The Heavens II - Song of Desert to Air on April 14 and Promo Video Compilation

Posted by : zahid
Xiao Yan is back and his adventure on the Tageer desert continue in a 3-episode specials of Battle through the Heavens season 2 narrating his encounter with the snake people tribe and his first meeting with Queen Medusa (spoiler: his future wife though the journey is quite rough).

Battle Through The Heavens II - Song of Desert
Battle Through The Heavens II - Song of Desert Key Visual

Alright, despite of having few available information about Battle through the Heavens - Song of Desert, we're quite fortunate to have a glimpse of it through a series of promotional videos as follows:


The hit Chinese 3DCG anime premiered on 2017 with its first season running for a total of 14 episodes (a two-episode OVA included) and followed by a second season on 2018. The anime is inspired of a popular Chinese web novel of the same title detailing the adventure of Xiao Yan. I'll say this is a pretty cliche yet very interesting story to follow, I have actually finished the original novel and I could say it's pretty satisfying despite of its repetitive elements which could be seen in other shounen anime too. One more thing, it's actually an isekai, and the second installment of a trilogy series with the first being Martial Universe (currently airing its first anime adaptation) and the last one is The Great Ruler.

Battle Through The Heavens II - Song of Desert


Battle through the Heavens Synopsis

In a land where no magic is present. A land where the strong make the rules and weak have to obey. A land filled with alluring treasures and beauty, yet also filled with unforeseen danger. Three years ago, Xiao Yan, who had shown talents none had seen in decades, suddenly lost everything. His powers, his reputation, and his promise to his mother. What sorcery has caused him to lose all of his powers? And why has his fiancee suddenly shown up? (Source: wuxiaworld.com)

Battle through the Heavens Song of Desert is scheduled to premiere on April 14, 2019 with each episode runs for 25 minutes. So, who's excited for Xiao Yan's return and finally gazing at our Queen Medusa together with the several characters in this arc such as Gu He, Yun Yun, and other Dou Wang entities of Jia Ma Empire. Please let us know of your thoughts.

Chinese Anime Review: The Best Donghua of Winter 2019 Season Lineup

Posted by : zahid
Hey guys, the winter 2019 anime lineup is almost over and on a different side of the industry, we are taking a peek at Chinese animation. Which anime from China captured our hearts this season and which one definitely deserves more viewers and praise.

Best Chinese Anime of Winter 2019 Season

Specifically, I have only seen few of these Chinese anime but I am keeping an eye on these shows and have them on my radar most of the time to find out which anime is well-received by guests and which shows are having some rough times.

So, let's start our list of 10 of the best Chinese anime that aired this winter of 2019. To be honest, I also included some of the shows that premiered on December as most of their run were on 2019 anyway and they're definitely among my favorites this year. In fact, I thought these titles could also fight for best Chinese anime of 2018 if they only started earlier than December last year.

Anyway, our list were not in particular order as follows:

The Demonic King Chases His Wife

Xie Wang Zhui Qi

First in our list is Xie Wang Zhui Qi or The Demonic King Chases His Wife which first aired on January 24, 2019. The anime is a project of iQiyi and KJJ Animation which is adapted from a novel with the same title by author Su Xiao Nuan. I won't fill some spoilers so I would rather discuss my thoughts about it. The Demonic King Chases His Wife is a very fun and breathtaking anime to watch. Although it's only around 13-minutes long episode, it offers a fascinating visual, decent animation, and funny encounters between characters. Though, just like the rest of Chinese anime shows, there are always those despicable characters where as a viewer, I actually to be transported inside the story and punch those people. The same thing exists on this anime, but one thing that I really adore about this were the two main characters who give us the typical couple in quarrel scenario but still find it romantic at the end of the day.


Psychic Princess

Tong Ling Fei

Next, we have Tong Ling Fei or Psychic Princess. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of this anime but it's actually our most popular post here at Yu Alexius Anime Portal. Just like Xie Wang Zhui Qi, Psychic Princess is a historical comedy anime with almost the same conditions on its plot. A royal prince and a high ranking official daughter, Psychic Princess sure offer us an unconventional romance story between two characters with differences. That's actually a pretty cliche plot which is rampant in other stories but quality wise - the animation is quite good with really funny and fulfilling storytelling. Psychic Princess is brought to us by Chinese giants Tencent Animation & Comics, and Haoliners Animation League.


Adorable Food Goddess

Meng Qi Shi Shen

Meng Qi Shi Shen or Adorable Food Goddess, I'll say this is one of the best Chinese anime of 2019 when it comes to the quality of animation and visual. Another historical comedy romance Chinese anime, Adorable Food Goddess gives us more than just a romance story but also sumptuous cooking scenes. Seriously, those foods were looking great partnered with awesome animation, the entire cooking scenes sure are delightful to watch. Adorable Food Goddess is a pretty decent piece of art from bilibili, China Literature Limited, and Wawayu Animation.


Snow Eagle Lord

Xue Ying Ling Zhu

Another historical anime in our list but this time it's an action-packed story. The plot is pretty cliche just like the typical Chinese historical novel and this one is also in 3DCG animation. Actually, I think it's amazing and I could compare the animation's quality with either Soul Land or Battle through Heavens which were my two favorite 3DCG Chinese anime. Snow Eagle Lord or also known as Lord Xue Ying / Xue Ying Ling Zhu is another anime project produced by Tencent Penguin Pictures and animated by Mili Pictures.


Martial Universe

Wu Dong Qian Kun

Alright, I just mentioned Battle through the Heavens earlier and it's actually coming back this year but no specific date yet had been revealed. However, we have Martial Universe this winter and it's the anime adaptation of Martial Universe novel which is the first part of the same trilogy where Battle through the Heavens is also included. We actually had a live-action adaptation of Martial Universe too last year starring Yang Yang (who'll play Ye Xiu in the upcoming The King's Avatar live action drama or also known as Full-Time Master this year). The anime is a great action-adventure series to follow with the same cliche stuff as BTTH but on a different note. One thing is sure though, Martial Universe is definitely an overpowering story to follow. The anime is produced by Tencent Penguin Pictures, China Literature Limited, and animated by Shanghai Motion Magic.



Soul Land II

Douluo Dalu 2nd Season

We also have here one of my personal favorite Chinese anime, Duolou Dalu or Soul Land. Its current second season is rocking us with its Great Spirit Arena arc on which we were treated by the 7 Devils of Shrek on some fascinating fight scenes against other spirit masters rather than simply seeing them battling some monsters. Though I have to admit that I don't really find this season to be as good as the first one but I still have my hopes way up high since we still have some more episodes before the season finale.


Stellar Transformations

Xing Chen Bian

Also known as Legend of Immortals or Xing Chen Bian. This anime first aired on December and had been a great story to follow, this really reminds me again of Battle through the Heavens due to so many similarities on its plot and it's also a 3DCG animation which is amazing by the way. The anime is produced and animated by the same crew that gave us Martial Universe. Alright, so this is another historical adventure anime on our list and it seems pretty amazing (animation wise) and I also love the visuals but I'm no big fan of the main character, although he's popular and likable.


Great Warrior Wall

I wasn't able to watch this one yet but after reading some reviews and feedback I think Great Warrior Wall is a well-animated and good anime to follow this year. I have not much to say about Great Warrior Wall at the moment but looking through some video clips I believe it's really good.


Fox Spirit Matchmaker 7th Season

Huyao Xiao Hongniang: Zhu Ye

Alright, so we have a classic title on here and it's actually our favorite Fox Spirit Matchmaker. With too much drama, this is going to be an interesting season to follow though the anime just aired a few weeks ago. Once again, the animation is simply stunning with great visuals. This season is quite heavy on emotional investment and I'll say it's quite heartbreaking.


White Snake

Bai She: Yuan Qi

Bai She: Yuan Qi - This one is a masterpiece especially with how awesome and majestic the animation is, I seriously fell in love with White Snake despite not seeing the entire film yet. Though I actually had seen Jet Li's The Sorcerer and the White Snake - both films were adapted from the same Chinese classic folktale.



And that ends our list of the best Chinese anime from early 2019. Please let us know if you had seen of these titles and what's your thoughts about it.

Posted by : zahid
Hundred Miles Red - a melodrama short anime film featuring a crimson bloody theme with women, horse hoof and drums in the background to produce a mysterious and classic Chinese atmosphere of war drama.

Chinese Anime "Hundred Miles Red"

This short Chinese anime movie gives a very emotional and visually stunning animation with emphasis on the bloody-theme which is attached to its story. The drums in the background really sound epic and simply adds more ambiguity in the ambiance with too many shades of bloody red - from the red curtain, dress, lips of women, and real blood dripping on the ground - it all emphasize an emotional journey of love, pain, and loss.

Hundred Miles Red Trailer


A vividly beautiful and enchanting animation - that's Hundred Miles Red for you. Zheng Wu directed Hundred Miles Red with Shen Jiawen providing the screenplay.

Hundred Miles Red Plot

Standing quietly behind the city gate, a group of women light the lamps in the mist, waiting for their husbands to come home from the battlefield. Suddenly, the sound of hooves shatter the silence...
It is no surprise anymore that Chinese animation is gaining prominence and popularity in recent years with potential growth and improvement visually visible. The struggle for perfection and excellence had been paid off on some of the anime projects that was done on China and some of these donghua (Chinese anime) titles were even applauded and gain a huge fanbase in the anime community.

So what are your thoughts about Hundred Miles Red? For the full movie, you may it on their official Bilibili page.

      Goblin Slayer Anime

      For beginners, or anyone who isn't familiar yet with Goblin Slayer - the anime had been a huge hit last year and even earning a spot on our blog's Top 20 Anime of 2018. It's quite the controversial one though especially with the violence and nudity portrayed on it, but the story, fight scenes and character development is applausible.

      Goblin Slayer Synopsis

      A young priestess has formed her first adventuring party, but almost immediately they find themselves in distress. It's the Goblin Slayer who comes to their rescue—a man who's dedicated his life to the extermination of all goblins, by any means necessary. And when rumors of his feats begin to circulate, there's no telling who might come calling next...

      The anime is based on a popular light novel series with the same title written by Kumo Kagyu and published by Softbank Creative since 2016. It inspired a manga adaptation written by Kosuke Kurose and had been published by Square Enix and both the light novel and manga were published by Yen Press in English.

      Goblin Slayer is a dark fantasy anime that must not be missed. Though it is not suited for every type of anime viewers, it's a great adventure to follow with decent character build up, interesting world setting, amazing fight scenes, and lots of goblin. One thing is sure though, that Goblin Slayer new episode, Goblin's Crown will feature the usual gang slaying some more goblins once again, and possibly in the higher hierarchy of the pack.

      One Punch Man Season 2

      Saitama and the rest of the gang will surely rock our world this spring 2019 as they return for One Punch Man season 2 which is slated to premiere on April 10, 2019.

      As one of the most anticipated anime from spring 2019 lineup, One Punch Man will surely gather the force of its fandom to wreak havoc this season with its overbearing fight scenes, hilarious sarcasm, absurd dialogue, effing hot characters whose physique defies gravity, and Saitama's innocence heroic acts.

      Few hours ago, a promotional video for One Punch Man season 2 had been revealed featuring a glimpse on our next main villain Garou and Saitama in his usual low-profile life as a hero for fun. We had also seen Genos giving us a heartwarming narrative with emphasis on Saitama's strength and significance as our baldy hero caught the attention of other professional heroes without exerting much effort other than doing his usual job of saving the day against monsters and evil-doers.




      The video also shows several characters that we should look forward this season such as King, Blizzard, and personally, I am excited to see Metal Bat on One Punch Man season 2 as I really admire how brave and heroic he is in the manga in this part of the story.

      Here are some of the screen shots from the video:

      One-Punch Man Season 2 Plot

      Saitama is a guy who’s a hero for fun. After saving a child from certain death, he decided to become a hero and trained hard for three years. Though he’s now so strong he can defeat any opponent with a single punch, lately he feels as if, in exchange for overwhelming power, he’s lost something even more important.

      Now, let's all prepare for another exciting and definitely funny weeks filled with absurd laughter and amazing fights with occasional dosage of drama in One Punch Man 2nd season.
