Lelouch ;A; (YES THIS IS A SPOILER!!!)

Code Geass R2

( ゚д゚)

Code Geass R2

Lelouch!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;AAAAAAAAAAAA;

Oh god, he meant to commit suicide all along. Shit I’ve gotta admit I shed a tear for him.

R2’s ending just redeemed most of the stupidity of the past few episodes well enough for me.

Finally, a small little troll by Sunrise.

Code Geass R2

Orange in an orange farm!

Also he ends up with Anya. WTFUX?!

P.S. : As for the others…

  • Kallen lives back with her mom and pulls a Rei on the way to school
  • Milly is still a newscaster.
  • Nunnally is now the Empress. Suzaku becomes Zero. Ougi I guess becomes the Sec-Gen of the UFN.
  • Everyone blames Lelouch (Maou Lelouch LOL) for everything, so the world is peaceful now.
  • Tamaki runs a bar. A BAR! Bartender Tamaki HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
  • Ougi and Villetta marry, Japanese style.
  • Damocles burns up in the sun. Stupid decision if you ask me. They could’ve recycled it instead.
  • C.C. resumes travelling. God she sure loves Cheese-kun. She does her Marianne-thing to Lelouch but the dialogue is vague enough to make you think she’s also talking to herself.

The rest I can’t see since the raw is HorribleRaws. Waiting for the HD ones now.

P.S. 2: Man, this is sooo CLAMP-ish.

P.S. 3: StoleBorrowed Omni’s caps. God I just love that guy. Here’s the two pics I was talking about.

Code Geass R2

Interesting pictures here. Why do I see Diethard there lol? Also, Tamaki trying to put the moves on to Hong Gu (is that her name?) was LOL. The bottom right pic is even weirder. Gino and Tianzi together LOLWUT? Gino ish a rorikon?

Code Geass R2

And finally, Ohgi’s wedding pics. Notably absent is Xingke, so I wager he finally kicked the bucket. Tianzi looks OH-SO-CUTE-OMOCHIKAERITAIII!! as the bridesmaid. Anya looks positively drunk or that is just sheer QUALITY and I can’t believe that SERIOUSLY MINOR CHARACTER (next to Rivalz) actually appeared in the pic as well! The Ikaruga bridge bunnies also managed to survive unharmed too.

Looks like Toudou and Chiba hooked up as well, good for her. Other couplings seem to be Gino and Kallen, Lloyd and Cecile while Cornelia and Guildford probably still have that awkward “I-love-you-but-we-not-the-same-class” kinda relationship there, judging from the body language. Guildford smile sure looks QUALITY as well.

    Mmm… You realise that Nunally is dressed like one of those princesses in one of those H-OVAs that is about to get… “seductively taught the finer points of love”?

    IMHO a more rushed ending trying to tie up so many loose ends. Also Lulu needs to be alive to control 1st Prince who is now with Nunally.

    >>Also Lulu needs to be alive to control 1st Prince who is now with Nunally.

    No, his Geass was to be loyal to “Zero” not “Lelouch”. Since “Zero” is now Suzaku, Schneeze is technically Suzaku’s bitch. Also, Schneeze is the 2nd Prince, not the First, which would be Odysseus.

    >>Lelouch lives. Come on.

    Whether he ultimately lives or he dies doesn’t matter anymore in the big picture.

  8. Troll101 Said,

    September 28, 2008 @ 6:49 pm

    Biggest Clue;Paper crane:Nunnally taught Lulu to made those in R1

    Lelouch is still alive. He has Charles’ Code which he received when the man choked him. The Code activates first when you die, which happened. Charles code got activate when he shot himself the first time, same with C.C. when she was killed by the nun. And before you say can’t have Code and a Geass at the same time, the Code wasn’t the one C.C. had, meaning that Lelouch was the first one to achieve Code Geass. Lelouch’s code also activates when Suzaku stabbed him. Nunnally even gets ‘memory watch’ when he touched Lelouch. It was the similar effects when Leluch touched C.C.’s body back in the cave episode. This pretty much tells us that he really has the code and it is activating to revive him. He’s now traveling the country-side with C.C., living as immortals.

    That’s the only reason for C.C. to be suddenly so happy again. Also, before you say that C.C. was just talking to the dead like with Marianne, that’s not true. She could only talk to her because of the nature of her Geass which allowed her to implant herself into the “hearts” of others. That’s how she was able to talk with Marianne. Lelouch’s Geass was entirely different, meaning that she could only have spoken to her if he was there.

    @Troll 101: You have a point there.

    Again, however, it doesn’t really matter for me in the end. If he did become Lawrence, I would still be happy. On the other hand, if he did die, it was still an epic death.

    What I can’t believe the most is that Lelouch decided to die.
    It seems that in the end, his goal is to create a peaceful world in which Nunnally can live in.
    Sad and Touching ending to me.

  13. Keiya Said,

    September 28, 2008 @ 10:30 pm

    Once we’ve all overcome the initial shock factor of Lulu getting skewered by a sword (DAMN, that rules out the Suzaku ending!), let’s go ahead and count ALL the way too many plot threads that have not been resolved.

    – First, I’d like to commend Troll101’s observation that’s a really valid observation, and perhaps the Code DID get passed onto Lelouch, with him having the power of evolved double-eye Geass and all that. It’s plausible too; if you remember, C.C. was not the person who gave Charles his Geass, but he was still able to try to get her Code. The problem is, the series let this plot point, this amazing, interesting plot point, by the wayside, for BL and stupidity. I’d sure as heck want this resolved through a 1 and 1/2 hour special called Code Geass R2 Final Plus.
    – Where is Xingke!?
    – Why are Guilford and Cornelia alive whilst one was trapped in a nuclear explosion, and the other was swissed with bullets??

    See, the problem is that they indeed concluded what happened to Lelouch, but they did not conclude anything else. Thus the ending is rushed and appears to be highly deus ex machina.

  14. Jason Said,

    September 28, 2008 @ 10:43 pm

    Whew, so we have an epic (in a good way) end. I was starting to get worried reading your previous posts. Now to start watching the first ep (knowing all about the conclusion :D)

  15. manga Said,

    September 28, 2008 @ 11:29 pm

    Why did I yawn trough most of this ep?

    And why kill of Suzaku if he is supposed to be Zero afterwards?

    Wanting to die as the “evil” ruler of all mankind fits into how Lelouch acts. Kinda irritating to see Kallen go “he´s Zero!!” when she would know it isn´t the truth.

    But sure, Sunrise chickened out to make it a “happy” ending. But with how the previous ep ended it was quite obvious that everything would work out nicely in the end.

    Finally I´m free of this show.

  16. Roaming Kareoke Said,

    September 28, 2008 @ 11:50 pm

    Wow, ending sure was a lot different from what I expected (gg Sunrise). No matter how evil he was over the last few eps, you have to shed a tear for the guy the second that the real plan was revealed. *sniff*

    Sidenote: Orange, you have gone from a comedy character in season 1 to the most pro man i have seen during the fight between Anya. ALL HAIL ORANGEEEE! BUY HIS ORANGESSSS D:

    September 29, 2008 @ 2:13 am

    That’s right Troll101, I agree with you in everything.

    SUNRISE is to blame for the horrible plot holes, but they gave us all the clues we need to conclude that Lelouch is alive. Lelouch became worth to be immortal when he archived his double-Geass. Also, he needed to die in order for his Code to activate, just like C.C. and Charles.

    Maybe all of this is wishful thinking, either way it was an awesome end.

    Nooooooooooooooooo Lelouch well expected… but stilll

    too much fking info packed into such a short episode, its too detailed sigh…

    Hope there is some kind of twist later on, hope there will be some kind of continuation OVA at least

    T_T still i didn’t thought of of the idea of him killing himself at all being the ultimate sacrifice by concentrating all the hatred in one place…

    Explodes his KMF, revealing a hidden one, explodes that one too and then knocks her out with his SUPER FUCKING AWESOMENESS? Jeremiah provided what must have been the most epic fights in the entire series.

    And why isn’t Sayako with him in the orange farm? D8

    Also, for the Diethard thing. Obviously the picture was taken while he was still alive. One of the pictures have Suzaku and Lelouch in it, for God’s sake.

    This was at least not out of left field. I think I was expecting this to be Lulu’s plan ever since he killed Charles and took over Britannia. I just want sure if he would succeed.

I was hoping that the part where CC was praying in the church had something to do with passing her code to lelouch but I felt like it was wishful thinking no matter how much I wanted to believe it. so thanks for explaining that!

    Excuse me if I sound like an idiot, but I don’t understand -_-”

    Lelouch is able to receive a Code and to become immortal because he has the “double Geass”.
    And, like Charles and CC, taking a Code and becoming immortal, should make him unable to have a Geass and to use it.
    So why are you talking about a “Code Geass” ?

    As you can see, I don’t really get the point… would you like to explain this a little …

  29. Xigo Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 5:57 am


    “And, like Charles and CC, taking a code and becoming immortal, should make him unable to have a geass and to use it.”

    But thats not the case. You receive geass as part of the contract and that contract ends when one of the parties die.

    In C.C.s case the nun died and she lost her geass, in Charles case V.V. died and he lost his geass but in Lelouches case C.C. is still alive therefore he doesn’t lose his geass.

  30. 8ghosts Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 6:11 am

    the nun didn’t die, she killed herself
    vv was killed

    so they did not die as a direct result of losing the geass

    Don’t hate me, but I still don’t understand…

    The nun was immortel, so she couldn’t nor be killed, nor killed herself…
    V.V was immortel, so idem.
    V.V loses his immortality when Charles takes his Code, becomes mortal and he dies because of his injuries caused by the explosion of his Nightmare…

    To tell the truth, we’re on a french blog, talking about the ending of Code Geass just like you, and we’re very interested by the theory of the “Code Geass”.
    But unfortunately, seems like I can’t follow half of your reasoning ^^’

    Still I loved how he fell and made a red cross on the carpet, and how nunnaly chased him in her wheelchair. She would have caught up to him if Schneizel had made Democales a little more wheelchair friendly.

    The novel version is still on-going so who know what its finale may look like (and they might saved something for the blueray version).

    Time will tell if we ever find the answers.

  34. Furuba Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 7:06 am

    if the nun didn’t pass on her immortality to ctsu in the first place, then how does c.c become immortal? :P
    wouldn’t it be that nun passed it to c.c then killed herself? if she did, then that would fit nicely into this whole big theory.
    the nun wanted to die too, which is why when she kills herself she says “you’ve fallen for it” or something, i’ve forgotten. so then c.c is stuck with immortality.

  35. MegaVolt Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 7:06 am

  38. Xigo Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 7:39 am


    The nun died becuase she killed herself, thats right. I never intended to say that you die as a result of losing your code.

    I only wanted to say, that you lose geass if the one gave it to you dies and that you don’t lose ist if you receive a code.


    Its like Furuba says with the nun.

    And with the code geass I will try to make it clearer this time:

    Charles takes the code from V.V..

    Charleses code is dormant, He can still be geassed and is not immortal nor can he use any other abilities of the code.

    V.V. dies because of the injuries he received in battle.

    Everyone who has received a geass from V.V. loses it( like Charles for example).

    Charles is geassed by Lelouche and shoots himself.

    He dies and his code activates. Now he can’t be geassed anymore, is immortal and can use all the other abilities of the code.

    Charles transfers his code to Lelouche.

    Charles dies because of the crazy shit happening in the world of C.

    Everone who has received a geass from Charles( I don’t know one because there probably aren’t any) loses it.

    Lelouches code is dormant, He can still be geassed and is not immortal nor can he use any other abilities of the code.

    Lelouche is killed by Suzaku.

    Lelouche dies which activates his code. He is now immortal, can’t be geassed anymore and can use the other abilities of the code.

    Lelouche keeps his geass because C.C. is still alive.

    Nunnally touches Lelouche and he transfers some of his memories to her using the code ( same thing that happend between him and C.C. early in season 1 in that cave after C.C. “defeated” Suzaku in the Lancelot). (oh, and I know its not a voluntary thing)

    I hope that helps understanding it.

  41. le nuage Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 9:28 am

    VV… who else ?
    CC gave the Geass to Mao and Lelouch so you can give it to more than one person at the same time.

    I also think Lelouch is alive.
    now he and CC are imortal and no longer alone.

    Anya… ftw. why didn’t we see what happened after orange freed her from charles’ geass ?

    And congratulations sunrise for having forgotten Xing-ke.
    And they didn’t explain why Nina was such a coward in the beginning… raep ?

  42. Magnius of the Chaos Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 9:33 am

    Then that screws up the theory above. If Bismark got his Geass from VV, then he should have lost it when Charles killed VV.

    Unless, of course, some Geasses are artificially created through experiments. Isn’t that why the cult was doing all that research shit?

  43. catrophy Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 9:33 am

    you know, i just wanted to know C.C’s name. Too much to ask? Also angry that everyone kinda just forgot Shirley.
    This is also entirely possible, and I’m not sure if i would want it or not. The exploration of Geass itself in another “Geass” series through characters past/present/future. i find it hard to believe C.C and V.V were the only ones of their kind(unless i missed something) or that Mao,Charles,Lelouch, Marienne were the only people with Geasses.

  46. Xigo Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 9:58 am


    Good point! I really forgot Bismarck, damn it!

    I too am pretty shure that he got his geass form V.V. which would screw my theory. While I think artificially created geasses are unlikely there is another posiblility.

    C.C. said she was once the head of the geass organization and we know she worked together with the other three. Since Bismarck is relatively old compared to the rest of the cast and considering that it has been only 8 years (or a little more) since she stopped working together with them its possible that his geass is from C.C..

    But I’m not sure of my theory anymore when it comes to the geass part. In the end we need a continuation or DVD specials which explain these things in detail ;)

    Frankly speaking, there’s a fuckton of inconsistencies about the Geass now, some which even invalidate previous established thoughts about it.

    I wouldn’t delve too deeply in to making sense of it all myself, really. It seems Sunrise just threw in a lot of stuff in to the show to make it sensationalistic.

  51. simpleviet Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 10:12 am

    I think that the Code just overrides any geass you have and if the person who gave you the geass dies you still have it. Its the activation of the code that stops you from using your geass. Rolo still had his geass after V.V died too so that kinda supports my theory

  52. Troll101 Said,

    to the question where bismark and rolo got their geass, i think they were artificially created. i mean think about it, rolos geass was clearly a failure, his heart stoppen when he used and bismark seales his geass, that could either mean he didnt want to use it on an umworthy opponent or theres somthing wrong with his geass too (of course a someone before mentioned its entirely possible that bismark got his geass from CC, CC was an ally of charles and bismark is his knight after all). in addition to that there wer many other geass user kiddis at the cults base, i dont think they all made a pact with VV, so they propably figured out a way to make a bad copy of a geass contract artificially.

    and i think Trolls theory makes the most sense out of what ive read so far

  56. Avisch Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 11:41 am

    The theory does make sense. There is no hole the in theory (I do not believe Charles would kill himself on purpose when Lelouch if Lelouch’s geass didn’t work). Im not saying I want Lelouch to be alive or dead because:
    1. If he is dead. His sacrifice was incredibly honorable. He even allowed his sister to hate him (and thankfully she got to see his true color)
    2. If he isn’t dead. He gets to live with C.C. even after he has made her smile, and thats great (no sarcasm).

    “It seems Sunrise just threw in a lot of stuff in to the show to make it sensationalistic.”
    This can also be said. The series became that way almost right as Lelouch became Emperor.

    But anything aside. Despite that Goro did not recieve the planning he wanted. This ending was incredibly nice, and I loved the ultimate theme.

    Lelouch drew the hatred of every person and therefore rendering a world in which no one would wish to be hated like that. You can see it in ultimate other ways

  57. Xigo Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 11:53 am

    The reason why Bismarck seals his geass could be quite simple:

    Maybe his geass was already strong enough to be active all the time and he sealed it because he did not want to go insane from seeing “afterimages” of the future all the time.
    The same reason Mao listend to loud music all the time to distract himself( or what was it that the device he always wore did?).


    Yeah, that stuff with making the show sensationalistic might be true. But atleast for me its still fun trying to solve the “mysteries of show” even while I know there may be only a huge pile of crap some shitheads came up with instead of mysteries.

  58. Kurogane Shiroikaze Said,

    September 29, 2008 @ 11:57 am

    Don’t get me wrong, I liked to speculate about the Geass alot back in S1 myself, but when S2 started cheapening the value of the Geass by putting in all that stuff about the Geass research institution, kids bred just to find the ultimate geass and the whole nonsense with V.V., I just didn’t found it logical or worthwhile to think about it so much anymore.

    You do realize that just because we don’t see Sayoko doesn’t mean she’s not there – she may be at home, and Anya’s just an adopted daughter or a hired hand at the orange orchard.

    One other thought: if Lulu is indeed riding that wagon with C.C., who is dressed in a peasant-style dress, do you think he’s grown a bit of stubble like Lawrence from Spice and Wolf? I’m almost expecting a tail to peek out from that skirt C.C.’s wearing…

    Was I the only one that laughed at the ending? I mean, most of R2 was laughable to me. Giving Charles immortality and all these Geasses that appeared left and right. I just wished the fight with Charles was cooler. S1 was all about overthrowing him and built up this awesome WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT feel at the end, but they gave a I GEASSED GOD(or whatever), U LOSE closure to that. And geassing his brother wasn’t too bad. Really, I didn’t see him keeping his brother alive. Though C.C talking to L.L(or air) at the end left me wanting to know if he is really dead or not.

    Well, that’s the end of it; been quite the ride.

    Personally, I preferred the 1st Season whilst the 2nd Season had some good plot twists and constantly kept me on edge but the whole thing went slightly off-track for me when Lelouch took Emperor.

    Of course my hopeful scene where Nunally dies and Lelouch out of anger reveals himself as Zero to the World and vows Britannia’s destruction, never came.

    Now I’m not a fan of any open-ends in plots, I always like everything tied up nicely with high quality string and zips but the only character that still has me wondering is Schneizel. He’s still Zero’s Pawn as has been so rightly said here, yet Geass-cancelling technology exists. Possible plot-line for a sequel OVA or Movie, with a cameo appearance by Lelouch to save the day?

    Haven’t you been reading the previous comments. We are engaged in a massive debate on whether Lelouch is dead or alive, and it’s bound to erupt in a full-out otaku gang warfare that will end up drastically shortening the lifespans of noted anime bloggers far and wide. I have a bet going on between myself and I on which ones will die and which ones will survive the witness the destruction and depravity of the anime fan community. In the case of this blog, I’m quite convinced that Kuro will meet an untimely demise of moe, but I argue that he’ll survive. And really, one way or another, my predictions are ALWAYS right. ALWAYS wrong too, but you can’t have your cake, predict that someone’s going to eat your cake correctly and eat that non-existent cake. It’s fucking impossible.

    Alas, how far mankind has sunk to, attempting to control the fate of one young man by bandying words on the Internet! Have we as humans lost our compassion, our traditions, our values?

    Okay, double-posting but please excuse . . . wait – Q_Q okay I’m better now . . .

    Lelou planned to die, I understood that from the beginning of Zero Requiem, I knew that that had to be the only way to actually END anything. The only thing I didn’t know was HOW and WHEN or in this case IF he would die . . . I have to admit that it was sort of – I don’t know DESTINY (?) that they would have Suzaku be the one who ends it. All the while, Suzaku has to remain as he was in the very beginning – a face hidden behind a mask. Such is the fate of any who would take the name of Zero.

    I understand all this, but STILL . . . Q_Q If there is to be any Fan-Fiction’s I wanna be one of the writers! I’d write Lelou back in, or at least give him a chance to live peacefully without the shadow of his past. Maybe make it so that he’s lost all his memory of ever being Lelou, let alone Zero. Only this time it’ll be because of a wound NOT the Geass. Maybe I’ll even let him keep his Geass . . . that’d be cool

    And now, the end is near,
    And so I face the final curtain.
    My friends, I’ll say it clear;
    I’ll state my case of which I’m certain.

    I’ve lived a life that’s full –
    I’ve travelled each and every highway.
    And more, much more than this,
    I did it my way.

    Regrets? I’ve had a few,
    But then again, too few to mention.
    I did what I had to do
    And saw it through without exemption.

    I planned each charted course –
    Each careful step along the byway,
    And more, much more than this,
    I did it my way.

    Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew,
    When I bit off more than I could chew,
    But through it all, when there was doubt,
    I ate it up and spit it out.
    I faced it all and I stood tall
    And did it my way.

    I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried,
    I’ve had my fill – my share of losing.
    But now, as tears subside,
    I find it all so amusing.

    To think I did all that,
    And may I say, not in a shy way –
    Oh no. Oh no, not me.
    I did it my way.

    For what is a man? What has he got?
    If not himself – Then he has naught.
    To say the things he truly feels
    And not the words of one who kneels.
    The record shows I took the blows
    And did it my way.

    Yes, it was my way.

    …………………..Thank you and good nite sweet prince.

    But Lelouch had such a harem over the course of R2!

    At any rate, no time reset. Yay for no YHBT time-reset ending. Boo for NGE-style Open-to-speculation ending.

    Got to give Lelouch his credit though, directing the hate of the world to himself and throwing away power and dominion to free the world from the spiral of hate, and OMG world peace.

    Still, I maintain he’s driving the cart ’cause in my mind, he produces a Geass Musume with C.C and she’ll become the sole hottest being ever given form.

    September 30, 2008 @ 12:00 am

    One more observation. Once you die, those you geassed return to normal right. Schneizel still has his geass, he has to follow “Zero”. Therefore L.L. is alive, again, hitting the hay with C.C.

    But as Kurogane said this show is too sensationalistic for its own good. Sunrise just keep trolling along.

    Also that poor girl from R1 must still be trying to mark the wall each night.

    To Troll101:

    You know, I always envisaged the final scene to be showing that girl snapping out of it and wondering what she was doing, even if she was an old woman (she’d have run out of wall by then though).

  74. Kurogane Shiroikaze Said,

    September 30, 2008 @ 1:39 am

    Errr… no. I don’t think dying or becoming immortal will make your Geass disappear, at least if the Geass you use causes fundamental changes to the targets. That’s why Lelouch geassed Schneizel to “serve Zero” not him. If he knew the Geass will disappear once he dies, he wouldn’t have planned that in advance, and much rather killed him off instead, since he was still a huge threat.

    If you cite Nunnally, I think she’s probably special in that she is a high potential Geass candidate, so she could break Charles’ Geass on her own because of her potential. Also, Nunnally’s been implied to have turned “blind” to close her eyes from the cruel world, so her blindness might not have been the result of Charles’ Geass (IIANM). In fact, even Anya still displayed signs of Charles’ Geass (and Charles has long since disappeared) on her in this episode, until Orange (presumably) uses his Canceller on her.

    Yeah, I think they’ve decided to cross this with Spice and Wolf, with Lulu playing the part of Lawrence, since he had to get away from his old life as a Britannian monarch. Now she just needs some wolf ears and it’ll be perfect, especially if Lulu’s grown a scraggly-ass beared like Craft Lawrence’s.

    Although for some reason, I can’t shake the image of Suzaku agreeing to join Lulu since he gets to impale Lulu a few more times…

    I’m actually wondering if we’ll get an R3 with CC and Lelouche traveling to uncover the secrets of Geass, and perhaps to destroy it so they can die without cursing anyone else with the power.

    It might be too much of a genre change. But I’d killed for a SPice and Wolf style Lelouche and CC traveling show anyway.

    September 30, 2008 @ 11:00 pm

    lol just watched the ep so i’ll add in my 2 cents.

    concerning the girl geassed into marking the wall in at the school, i think that the rules of geass follows rules of death note quite nicely, like how the victim will only follow the instructions given only if it was physically possible to carry it out. In death note the victim just has a heart attack if it doesn’t meet this rule, while at the beginning of R2 we find out that besides Rival and Milly (who should have been the Empress imho) were the only ones who stayed at Ashford, so i would guess that the wall marking girl would just stop marking unless she can physically make the distance to mark that particular wall.

    As for keeping the geass after the contractor dies, i would guess that Orange’s geass canceller (which in itself could be a geass) was given by V.V. On the question of geass victims still being under geass after the geass bearer dies, it seems it is very likely. Basically from the animation of geass it essentially rewrites something into the victim kinda like a stamp. Unless that geass is cancelled via canceller or the geass condition can’t be met physically (i.e. like the wall marking girl) the victim’s gona be under geass indefinitely. In other words Scheeze is screwed for life unless Orange cancells it.

    sorry for sounding so nerdy :D

    Excellent ending to an entertaining series. Orange farm thing was hilarious though. I don’t really think it’s implied that Orange and Anya are anything more than friends though. The ending certainly is very elegant and ironic. Lelouch is killed by the symbol he created while achieving his objective of creating a world for Nunnally. Suzaku takes over as ‘Zero’, even though he originally held completely opposite ideals. The vagueness at the end was also very intriguing.

  88. Gotank Said,

    Oh, forgot to mention that the music in the last episode was very praise worthy. Continued Story and Madder Sky in particular were extremely fitting, well timed, and beautiful in my opinion. I agree that Lelouch being alive or dead at the end doesn’t matter anymore. Frankly this mystery keeps the overall story more interesting.

  89. Sapu Said,

    October 9, 2008 @ 12:38 am

    What an ending, crap, I must rewatch the video five times to accept that Lelouch is dead, officially.
    I am kinda curious that Lelouch still alive because he had taken C.C.’s code. Come to think, a code will make you cannot die nor old, but it doesn’t mean that you will die when someone took your code. The nun died because she committed suicide when C.C. took her code. V.V. died because of his wound. I think the geass sigil in C.C’s forehead quite conviced me to believe that Lelouch had taken the code.
    If it is not C.C’s code, Maybe Charles’ code? But I didn’t believe that. Charles said something like ‘why? i must be an immortal!!’ when he dramatically disappeared in world of C, what’s the reason for giving Lelouch, the Charles’ dream destroyer, his code. Also, despite of Charles’ ability to take C.C’s code occured when he took V.V’s code, we can say that a coder can take another code (quite explain why there are only two coders remaining among hundreds), that means geass-er cannot took another code except the one who gave them.
    But, I have see Lelouch neck, anyway…
    And… Oh, anyone know why Lelouch’s proper funeral didn’t air yet? Nunnally is such a jerk if she didn’t manage a funeral for her beloved brother.
    Thus, I didn’t mind if Lelouch is dead. His life is as epic as his death. All hail Lelouch!!

    Actually, Lelouch MIGHT be alive. C.C. never explained everything about Geass to him. Therefore, Lelouch might have planned his assassination without realizing the fact that he has to be killed in order for the Code to activate. That way, he actually lives on without planning it, probably.
    And, puh-leeeez. The person in the photo is NOT Diethard. Dont you guys remember Milly’s graduation? That guy is Gino, for heaven’s sakes.

    Recently rewatched CG to fully glean the whole story and characters since R2 was… well a bit of a mess hence the recurring complaints.

    I don’t think it would be appropriate to bring Lelouch back from the dead or have him remain alive despite the fact everyone who has watched and enjoyed CG may want that (a necessary precondition for Lelouch to finally realize his harem; might need to resurrect Shirley though). This conclusion is based on the story and thematic development of CG.

    Story: I don’t see what place Lelouch has. Be Suzaku’s double when Zero is required to give another over-the-top speech about justice? Go back to school with Kallen? Travel with C.C.? Besides its probably better as Lelouch’s redemption for using ‘justice’ as an excuse to fuel his personal war against Britannia.

    Theme: Come on… Lelouch has killed a little too many people whether directly or indirectly. I mean sure he can repent to a level where some may forgive him, but that Lelouch would be a drastically changed Lelouch to the one we know and love. Plus along the series the virtues of individuality, justice, forgiveness and life were trumpeted, it would be contradictory to allow a character who has grossly violated them until the very end to live even if he does bring peace (and even this is done in a less than humane way).

    It sucks, but yes, Lelouch died a fitting death for CG to end. Maybe you think his death could have been a little more dramatic or elongated to show how the other characters finally appreciated what Lelouch had done, but such luxury is probably inappropriate given Lelouch’s sins and would merely be a misguided tribute to the greatest felon in the CG universe. The fact certain important characters will always positively remember Lelouch and most the other characters won’t curse his name from dawn till dusk is already most deserving.

    Verdict: Lelouch dies and he better stay dead!

    Im still a tadd confused on why half the crap happened but anyways…….

    I’d say Troll101 definetely has a liable argument….. and I agree with it

    How in the world does Guilford survive though i would seriously want to know cause SUNRISE likes to do these fricken things where its like ( WTF you were incinerated, blown up, smashed into pieces and yet you walk in front of me????)(cough*cough* gundam seed destiny)

    But jeramiah was fricken sick when he took down anya….. i was like holy shit hes a fricken TANK!!

    the code geass thing makes sense seeing as Charles did end up putting his hand around his neck which couldve transfered the code over…..
    Suzaku couldve been crying because he didnt know that happened due to his lack of knowledge towards geass…. Jeramiah knowing because he worked with V2 (hence the smile of satisfaction)..but seriously SUNRISE needs to clear this up big time with a movie of a small rebellion not liking the outcome or some crap like that and show Lelouch and C2 appearing or something……

    but seriously I wanna know why he kept on accounting for everything( whether it be a mistake or wasn’t him at all)… was it for people to hate him….
    Like when the black nights found out about Geass why didnt he just say (if you were being controlled you wouldnt be rebelling) or something like that but anyways ……. what can we do its over…

    Also, we shouldn’t rejoice at Lelouch being alive. It’s probably a form of punishment. That he will have to live for an eternity, living with his sims, and the people whom he fought for will all die with time. It’s really sad, but that makes it all the more epic.

    Okay, so The actual makers of Code Geass Confirmed Lelouch to be dead. I saw the link on the anime news network forums a while back. And even though Lelouch is DEAD, geass CANNOT die. So, while his geass lives on, hes actually dead. I kinda choked up at the scene where Nunally is crying over his body. Sad sad. :'(
    Why the fuck doesn’t anyone care about Shirley?! Its not like she was one of the only girls Lelouch ever loved! Yeesh! That and it seems like everyone’s forgotten about her….:(

    1. Why isn’t Nunally in Oghi and Villetta’s Wedding picture? Is there any reasoning behind that?

    2. When Todoh shows confusion over who is actually Zero, and starts to say Suzaku’s name, Kallen cuts in and says its the REAL zero. So does he know or not?

    3. Does Kallen have any feelings for Lelouch, and does Lelouch have any feelings for Kallen?! I’ve kinda wanted to know seeing as she was crying when he was killed.

    4. Shouldn’t the characters show redemption for Lelouch’s death? And shouldn’t Nunally, knowing what his real plan was, along with Kallen, tell the other Black Knights about it? I mean, I know it could get leaked out to the world, but why don’t any of them show any remorse for him, except for Kallen and Nunally?

    5. Finally, I’ve been hearing a lot about Sunrise coming out with an Episode 26 of R2 for Code Geass. Its supposed to be a summary episode or something, but does it go into the lives of each of the main characters after the death of Lelouch? INFO PLEEZ!

    Also, the creator…will never ever tell the truth!

    …I don’t believe those official stuff …why? the story is about LYING!

    And It’s not about how good or evil he had done , it’s about GEASS and its tricks!

    Did anyone got an idea that Lelouch also casts his Geass to us?…ordering only to view his death!? …didn’t you all noticed that he already using his
    Geass in the very beginning whenever you watched the opening song?

    That is the reason why they made the concept of the story!

    He made us believed that he truly died because of his GEASS!

    For me, I really believed that he got Charles code because it’s too obvious! and it was located right on his neck!

    Also, I never saw any right answer of what is the real name of C.C., it’s practically common sense, her real name is “CODE GEASS”…Lelouch: Kodo gias on episode 11

    And, people have no choice but to admit that he’s alive or else, they themselves proved that they have been played by his Geass tricks…

    All I know is if you want to believe that hes dead do it. If you want him to be alive do it…troll101 had a good point. If hes alive cool…if he isnt like most people been saying it was a epic death. It’s what made the ending so great(Made me remember why I loved the Cowboy Bebop ending). Also cant stand when people say he needed to die since he killed a good amount of people….to me that is a easy way out. Living for an eternity is going to be his punishment(even though he’s probably going to be around C.C and that shouldn’t be so bad lol). This is just another Eva moment in anime I guess. What I mean is there are a lot of things missing or if you dont know about something youre going to get this conlusion but someone with this knowledge or caught something that someone(troll101 stuff) else didnt is going to get this conclusion. My conclusion is that creators left it open to the audience even if they said hes dead….if you left a somewhat cliffhanger ending people are going to have different endings. My2cents I guess. Just believe what you want to believe.

    I reckon Anya stayed with Orange ’cause he was pretty much the first person she saw after her Geass was cancelled, and it was the point in her life when she was her own person. Maybe she felt she owed something to Jerramia and followed him to the orange farm.

    i totally cried when Lelouch died, and Shirley, and when i thought Nunnally was dead.

    but the editors confirmed that R3 is not about Lelouch. therefore she is dead
