You'll notice I didn't defend SEED in this discussion. The only reason you even know I'm a fan of it is a) my avatar, and b) the fact that we've talked about it elsewhere. The point I was trying to make is the same one that Rethis and a few others have pointed out to you—just because another show is, in your opinion, worse, doesn't mean the one you are defending is good. If that argument held true any and all shows could be defended by saying "hey, they're not Plan 9 From Outer Space".
Regarding the discussion of relationships, I admit that none of the ones in Geass
really grabbed me, but that's partly because I didn't like Lelouch very much and couldn't understand why Kallen, Shirley, etc would be interested. I thought Suzaku and Euhpemia could be interesting, but even that seemed rushed, and then, what went down went down.
A question for the people who are watching the new show—as someone who likes the concept of Geass
(giant robots, superpowers, and complex plots) but hates the execution of the original (the silly levels of ham, the way the plot seems to be on Lelouch's side) is there anything in the new show that would appeal to me? Geass
is one of those franchise's I'd like to like, and if the new show solves some of it's problems I might consider giving it a shot.
