personally he's a pretty complicate character, i think it's hard to really understand his thinking.

but when contrast with lulu, his convictions seem to pale in comparison.

His notable hypocritical statements seems to stick out like sore thumbs and i think that is why a number of people hate him for these.

Lelouch isn't all that sadistic nor would I say that Suzaku is either. Suzaku is certainly one of the most complicated characters in this show and a good opposite to Lelouch.

Edit: I put this image in spoiler even those it isn't since most people just got a shorter preview than they were supposed too.

Dragging your friend in a Britannia prison suit by his hair to the feet of the person he hates the most might not be sadistic yet, but I think it's just a sample of what we can expect from Suzaku this season.

Well, this is just with Lelouch and probably any of his enemies I guess.

Unlike most people, I don't hate Suzaku. I'm indifferent towards him and I've actually been quite impressed with his character more than once in the series. However, if somehow by the grace of the devil he gets together with Kallen, then no more. All the combined hatred of all the Suzaku haters in the world will not equal 1/10th of the hate I would have for him if that happened.

That's a silly reason to hate someone. Besides, the plot won't allow since it would require way too much to happen and a lot of change on either Suzaku or Kallen's part.

The only problem I had with Suzaku was the fact that through the entire first season he keeps talking about changing the empire from the inside without even realizing that in order to do that he would have to convince the emperor who to me dosent seem like the kinda guy who wants to stop the oppression he helped create. But hopefully this new jaded heartbroken Suzaku will be less annoying.

That's the thing--I don't think he himself believed in it when he was spouting off that crap. It was simply a way for him to justify his life in the height of his madness. It was a fantastical lie that he told himself over and over again until Euphie came along and actually offered to turn his lie into reality. And if he could help Euphie make that come true, then he can absolve himself for pulling the wool over his own eyes for the past seven years, right? Right?

(The last bit was sarcasm, if it wasn't clear enough.)

Spoiler for If the following is true:


Then he's just short sighted because that won't change much. People under oppression, no matter how non-violent it is, will always want freedom, and Suzaku can't see that. He also seems to be an arrogant fool who thinks he can bring happiness to everyone on his own.

Btw, I don't hate him, he means to help but just does it in a wrong way. At least from my pov.

I haven't heard anything regarding that. Sounds like speculation to me.

No it came through the spoilers talking about the Knights of the Round (With the corresponding magazines). Though I can't find it anymore now that it's been dug in deep.

Well the Japanese were content enough to have their own region within Area 11 made up by Euphie.

In this case it'll be under Suzaku himself though they'll still be discontent and distrust there so he would have a long way to go to make it a better place.

And don't forget, he's a knight of the Emperor. To go against Suzaku would be the equivalent of opposing the Emperor (Which no one would dare).

Really? First I heard of it. I'm rather surprised actually.

SoD wouldn't make something like this up. There was a large article about the Knights a while back, so I'd trust it to be true.

As far as Suzuku changing the empire internally is false hope and always was due to his Eminence the Emperor. Never really seemed possible with Euphie alive, and I don't think it's on his mind now. As far as stopping him from killing Lelouch, only a LOOONNNG talk with C.C. can avert that.
