CODE GEASS – 3.25 – Picture Drama 02 (DVD Special)
Directly following the announcement of Clovis’ death, the girls of the student council head to the bath. Kallen wonders why they’re taking a bath and why she in particular is there since she just took a shower a little earlier. Milly claims that this is part of a social gathering: socializing with friends in the nude. After being teased by Milly about Lelouch, Shirley mentions how he was acting strange after seeing the news, and Milly noticed it in Nunnally too. Kallen feels that Lelouch treats Nunnally with a different attitude than he treats her, which Milly attributes to Lelouch’s love for his little sister. The girls then get to talking about their bodies, and Kallen mentions that Nina looks different without her glasses. Milly says that she’s been trying to get Nina to wear contacts for a long time, which implies that they’ve known each other for a while. Indeed, as Nina explains, they are childhood friends, and her grandfather worked in Milly’s grandfather’s company developing Knightmare frames. Since she’s knowledgeable about this kind of thing, Kallen connects the Ashford name with the experimental Io and Ganymede types. When Milly reveals that the company went bankrupt because of the research costs, Nina feels that it was her grandfather’s fault. Milly, however, says that it was because of her own grandfather’s extravagance in throwing parties. In the end, he came over to Japan and survived by running this school thanks to personal connections. Milly then asks Kallen if she’s free the day after tomorrow, but Kallen remembers that she has an appointment at the Tokyo Tower. Since Kallen won’t be available, Milly decides to ask her now what her three sizes are so that she can have clothes made for parties and events. Kallen doesn’t want to say, Milly has Shirley hold her back while she finds out herself.
Those wanting more GEASS hentai are really getting their wish with this picture drama. The official website describes this extra as a “Bath Time Talk” between the girls, and the episode labels itself as 3.25 – i.e. occurring directly after the events of episode three. Like the first picture drama, this one isn’t fully animated, but rather uses a lot of panning around the images you see above. Unlike the first picture drama, this one is of a relatively lighter fare, though they do reveal that Nina and Milly’s grandfathers knew each other because they worked together developing Knightmares. I don’t know if we’ll ever get to see those earlier types, but it does make for some interesting lore.
