The Black Knights take asylum in China, but then shit hits the fan when Tianzi is to be given away to Brittania as the bride of First Prince, Odysseus, as part of a political agreement between the two countries. Looks like Schneizel isn’t really a lolicon, even though he’s the one who arranged it.
Of course, this incenses Lelouch, so he gatecrashes the pre-wedding party and challenges Schneizel to a game of chess, but gets interrupted by “Atomic” Nina. The wedding proceeds next day, but this time, Xing-ke is the gatecrasher, trying to fulfill his promise with Tianzi from 6 years ago. Of course, ol’ Lelouch the lolicon takes the chance and kidnaps Tianzi in the chaos. Meanwhile, Orange-kun is back, and he’s with V.V., protecting another ruins in the Chinese Federation.
After a two-week hiatus, Zero is finally back, and the show is now slowly taking a more international stage. I’m starting to like Tianzi a bit, since from the flashback, it shows she does have a good heart in her, just that she’s being manipulated by those ball-less(figuratively and literally) officials around her. I “awww~~~”‘ed when she started waving her pinky in the air when Xing-ke gatecrashed her wedding as a sign of their promise from 6 years ago.
As for Zero, why does he always love to do all those flashy things, like challenging Schneizel to a chess battle, but not taking the final move when he’s given the chance. That fella’s stupid pride is really painful to see at times. Thankfully, he got bailed out in the end by Nina, who’s still a little bonked in the head it seems.
Oh right, Cecile seems to be also given the “fanservice” provider role. We got to see her in qipao this episode, and I lol’ed when she ate the decorative carrot sculptures XD. And speaking of which, they seem to be turning up the romantic tension between Lelouch and Kallen. They almost kissed each other again this week.
(O_O)… will they finally kiss?
Ah, but C.C manages to stop them in time. Looks like she ain’t giving him up to Kallen so soon.
Mmm~ Cecile again.
Gotta love Kaguya. She’s so good at defusing all this tensions
I’m taking her as replacement for Nunnally *evil laughs*
