I am Batman.

My dad sent me this interesting Singapore story over email.

A nervous young man was coming in through Immigration. The Immigration officer saw this and called him aside to be questioned.

Officer : What is your name?

Young Man : Batman.

Officer: Don’t play play with me. What is your first name?

Young Man : Batman!

Officer : Never mind. What is your Surname?

Young Man : Superman.

Officer : I am warning you. Do not give me false information, that is a grave offense. Give me your Identity Card!

Young man hands over his IC to officer. The Officer lets him go…

I am Batman.

This is a true story. Elsewhere the card is actually uncensored (which is kind of wrong), but this copy was censored to protect his secret identity. I mean, we should help superheroes keep their identities, right?


About Code Geass R2’s third ep: Apparently, Sunrise already decided to just go ahead with the episode as scheduled. They might have seen that to delay the telecast would be overreacting and would vex the fans and wouldn’t contribute to the integrity of the show much.

Strangely enough, the official word is that the leak was “an accident.”

How on earth does one accidentally upload a video onto Youtube?!

Here’s the official note from the official website:

「コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュR2」 第3話の映像の誤操作による漏出について
2008年4月15日17時頃、インターネット上の動画投稿サイトに、放送前の「コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュR2」 第3話の映像の一部が、漏出するトラブルが発生しました。

放送を楽しみにお待ちいただいた方には、ご心配、ご迷惑をおかけいたしまして大変申し訳ありません。 今後、二度とこのようなことが無いよう十分に注意して作業を進めてまいります。
これからも「コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュR2」の応援をよろしくお願いいたします。

Around 2008 April 15th 17 o’clock, at a movie upload site [Youtube], a portion of the footage of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2’s unbroadcasted third episode was leaked. The investigation revealed that Bandai Channel, which is the production group in charge of Internet transmission, encountered a system error during operation and that the aforementioned video was part of the group’s efforts in preventing illegal uploads.
We assume responsibility for this inexcusable mistake. We assure you that we are taking steps to ensure that this does not happen again. The third episode will air as scheduled on Sunday, April 20th at 5:00 pm.
We ask you to continue supporting Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2.
–Code Geass Production Team

Ah, that’s a relief. Definitely looking forward to seeing this episode tomorrow.
