Suzaku was talking to milly during the party at some point, about a knightmare and lloyd and stuff. Does this mean milly is on this plot against zero??

Awww CRAP!

I mistakenly chose a score of 1 for this episode.

dammit how i change it? or is that impossible?

oh well, dammn. if only i didn't take so long to think about it, then i won't of been looking at a score less then 9.

Anyway my true score is 7, it was a interesting, with a nice cliffhanger.

can't wait for next week, i think it's going to be all the difference in slowing down Suzuku attack, he has it fixed in his mind that lulu is back. It going to bne a matter of time with or without evidence before he's going to bust lulu up.

Lulu just need time, to gather his forces to counter the knight of round absolutely HAXxoR knightmares.

no
they discussed about Nina, about how she is finishing her Ganymede unit or whatever that blue thing was called like, thent he subject came down to her major being so not like Lloyd, then it turned to the Lloyd subject and how Milly hasn't recieved a word from him at all and thinks that he has lost interest because she's redoing her year etc. Suzaku tries to explain that THAT isn't the case and then Arthur bugs in =3

I can't say I was really surprised at the end. /a/ called it already in a couple of threads discussing the new Governor-General, albeit jokingly. And I think I'm so messed up now, or just jaded. Villetta's skimpy bathing suit made me dot and facepalm once, but I didn't even blink at the rest of the fanservice. I just laughed.

The episode was kind of fillerish, but it was all in good fun.

Both. It's been like that since the beginning. Some people *cough* I, among many others *cough* consider that a strength of this show :3 To each his/her own, I suppose.

Oh, c'mon, Viletta was the highlight of this episode. For one thing, she still didn't forgive Shirley for shooting her. On the other hand, she is so screwed right now with her little "birthday party".

I really want to know what happens next episode, specifically how Lelouch pretends that he doesn't know who Nunnally is, and why this random General is calling him brother. THAT will be spectacular.

P.S Suzaku really is the most evil person on the show now. He needs to die. Seriously.
No suzaku = no good plot.

Evil is what makes the world go round. (well, Lulu is also evil in my perspective.)

This is actually the first time that he did something daring (twice if you count him solding Lulu to Emperor)

Quote from Random curiosity:

JT: "lol, as expected, lulu just can’t handle suzu. if suzu is around, all his calculation just go way haywire"

Yea, Suzaku is an anomaly. Lulu, it's time for you to get a new anti-virus/bug system.

Have to say the ending was a real highlight. Amazing just how damn evil Suzaku has become. He knows that if Lelouch has got his memories back he'd have to have a major reaction to hearing Nunnally. If he's going to give himself away at all its during that phone call. Of course if he does give himself away he's got to deal with Suzaku who could take him out. Which means he'd have to lie to her which he promised not to do. Can see how it would be another thing that would mark Suzaku for the grave with his haters. What irony though that Lelouch planned on Suzaku being Nunnally's knight and now in the preview the emotions brought up by the thought of him being at her side.

Well at least we get some insight on Suzaku's plans. Joining the knights actually means something with working towards being in charge of Japan at some point. Only so much even the person in charge can do, but in his mind would probably be worthwhile. All he can do since he has to keep living.

Lelouch hasn't done bad for himself these last couple episodes. Rescues the major members of his force, manipulates Rolo, and now blackmails Viletta as well. With those people covering him it'll be a lot easier. Plus gets some information about Rolo's geass which will only make it easier to destroy him when the time comes. His chief concern is Rolo messing things up with his dilemma about trusting Lelouch.

Yes, but it's unnecessary in S2. Sunrise used Nunnally to give Lelouch a reason for going back instead of taking the series onto the next level. The school/Zero stuff just isn't blending well at all anymore.

The amount of fan service has also risen a considerable amount, making the show even more comical (in a bad way). Kallen is now there simply for fan service and nothing else whatsoever... Sunrise are ruining her character by removing her respectability with this fan service increase.

As English football commentators say, we're now at the business end, meaning Code Geass needs less retarded school filler, less fan service, more character development and more plot advancement. Fuck this childish/perverted rubbish.

It was an OK ep. The only reason why i liked this was cuz i could see how lulu had to cover up almost everything in the show.

Somehow he remind me of Kira from death note with those evil emo expressions xD totally badass.

Lulu needs soe physical training badly outrun by a girl shame on you

Then again i hate every last part of suzuku and the part where suzuku had to use nunnally was like totally annoying for me. All in all i hope suzuku dies, a guy who killed his dad as he did should die. Back stabbing lulu to get his memory erased is low IMO

Better parts was Kallen and CC. Kallen was half naked sweating in that mascot. I was totally turned on (they dont hide it either). I could clearly see her but, so my expression on the show sky rocketted.

CC was totally i dont care mode which was funny. She is like: The whole earth is looking for my ass, BUT I JUST DONT GIVE A FUCK cuz im CC BITCH.

That was so totally cool

Zino or Gino guy is funny he dont give a damn the whole world is a play ground the guy probably could do what he wanted since he was born and never heard someone say no or something. The other girl with him is boring and flat chested so a not interested subject unless you like lolicon (agree with Maes Hughes)

All i can say about Rolo is: Poor Rolo (brother complex)

Villetta NU get served best b day present

The rest of the cast is simply boring and they should bomb the campus


and again OMG DID YOU SEE KALLEN ON THE ROOF TOP WITH HER TOP

O. M. G i was like WTF (someone put a screenshot of it that was hentai)

If you didn't like it then go away, your being just as childish with your comments as you claim the show is. It was all good and fun, try to relax a little for pete's sake, there's enough heavy drama and shit to fry some peoples brains so this is a good way to let loose from the stress of the series a little.

I find it's disturbing that quite a few people rate this show below 5/10. To me, every eps have been 10/10. The twist, the plot, the suspense were superb! The second season of Code Geass is gettting better and better. I was curious when Kallen, CC... showed up at school and all commotions happened that might reveal their IDs, and knowing that Lelouch was gonna use his Geass somehow to solve, but it's quite a stroke of genius from the plot writer there. And there comes Nunally! Every episode left viewers craving for more!!! I always thought that V.V. was another chick, but turned out to be a dude. Why Vee-Two, anyway?

I also like the fanservices of Kallen so far bunny suit in ep1, bathing tower in ep3, and her butt in thie ep. She's quite a babe, ain't she? I watched the ep a second time I found Kallen sneaked in at around 12:35. Some squeaking sounds as she walked too! I also noticed that C.C. was the first character shown in the opening before Lelouch, she'll definitely getting more screentime this season.

Will the lesbian maniac Nina show up next episode? Her character was so disturbingly well-defined that I really hated her in the first season. With the Knights of Seven, Knights of Three, and this lil' lesb, Lelouch has quite a formidable enermy force at hand. Of course he got Rolo the assassin and some Jap powerhouses behind him, so the all-out battle is expected to be spetacular.

One flaw I wonder if anyone notices: why the king, Suzaku, Rolo... called that special powers Geass? If I'm not wrong, in the first season, that's the name Lelouch came up with when he first got the power due to some voice he heard or something like that (to lazy too trace in which ep). Can't be a coincidence, right?

If I want to post my opinion I'll continue to do so. The comments of an annoyed fanboy who's happy with anything as long as it's called Code Geass matter not to me.

Slapstick humour and pointless boob/arse/panty shots aren't the reasons behind me being hyped for S2 for so many months - I'm not meant to be watching a poor comedy or porn here.

Right,and the comments of a whiny shod without an ounce of humor in his body makes his opinions about as important as any of the complaints he has about the episode to begin with. You didn't like it, whatever, but don't waste your crap by making pointless posts, it wastes space and honestly I don't need to hear it or read through it, hell I don't even want to take the time to scroll over it given how utterly childish your being. Get over yourself already.

I can't be bothered to do a summary this week - The episode was too poor for me to put forward the required effort.

The small sections of the episode that weren't filler seemed like they were being fast-forded through, while the filler parts went on too long. There was also an excessive amount of fan service, Viletta wearing nothing for no reason, Kallen's arse being focused on for no reason and lots of swimsuits.

Am I supposed to be watching Zero's epic war against Britannia or Lelouch's day to day life at school around sluts?

I don't like how emotionless Suzaku is: Apart from him mentioning Euphy once when Arthur stole something from him, you'd think he'd forgotten about her entirely. It was bad enough seeing him decide not to kill Lelouch and get his revenge...

Talking of Suzaku, the Lelouch/Suzaku flashback was annoying to sit through. I don't need to see a cheap retelling of their history, just like I don't need to hear C.C.'s voice say the same lines at the start of every bloody episode.

Also, this whole Knights of Round stuff looks like it's going to be a negative: Gino's mecha looks like something from Power Rangers and the huge amount of youngsters piloting mechas instead of adults is already pissing me off before they start fighting in them.

On a related note, Anya was clearly designed simply to piss me off. It seems her purpose in life is to take perverted pictures of women (copy of a Vandread character) and play with her mobile. She's popular, worthless, looks 12 and pilots one of the new super mechas - There's more than enough reasons for me to hate her.

The ONLY truly well done part of this mess was the ending - It made my cheeks tingle to see Lelouch's horrified expression, him knowing he couldn't speak and act like he knew her unless he wanted Suzaku to kill him. It didn't surprise me that the only time Sunrise put any effort in for the ending, Sunrise wanting to throw something in to get the viewers back next week.

If the quality doesn't improve, I might end up dropping Code Geass. I'm very pissed off about how badly Sunrise are fucking this up.
All the reasons why you don't like Geass and especially this episode, my friend, are the reasons why I really like the series. Particularly the Anya part... And I am sure, that it is also the case with the majority of Geass' fans, or the fans that the series want to target. So the reason you don't like Geass is simply because you don't belong to the market that the series is targeting, thus you can just drop the series and find your own anime / TV shows that has old characters and no girls. Maybe like like your current favorite animes.

But you have a valid point that some of the key plot points are too rushed, i.e. the Viletta part.

Nevertheless, if you think Lelouch/Suzaku part is annoying, the over emphasis on Sasuke/Naruto in Shippuuden anime is many2 times worse. (no offense to Naruto fans - I'm a fan too, but not on the Sasuke-Naruto emphasis part)

i dont disrespect your opinion i actually think you have a couple of good valid points

but kallen's boob/arse/booty/behind/ass is definitely something worth the watch come on now you know you were like .

or you need to tell me that your either gay or a woman

I mean come on Kallen always has something useful to say it wasnt like she was there without a reason or said important stuff. The cool thing about her is she is that hawt rambo girl who says something important yet is half naked. i had to rewind to actually know what the fuck she was saying.

What you want the writers to do have girls all dressed up in muslim clothing the head whatever you call it. That be lame. What the writers do of this show liek many other is profiling and the have many roles for different chars kallen is the sexy war specialist type and i like that so im sold. C.C. is the smart i dont give a damn cuz im classy girl. i could describe the rest of em but not worth my time.

it's called critiscism and it's a part of discussion. This thread isn't called "Circlejerk to Code Geass Ep 5" even though that's what mainly goes on in here. The ep was pretty damn poor, even if you disregard what actually happened in this ep it was still poor. The scenes jumped around all over the place, bad timing, bad music,etc. The directing and editing was just frantic. Every single time some one tries to talk about something important it gets interrupted, suzaku with the cat, milly and suzaku with the cat again, shirley interrupting c.c who then gets interrupted by kallen, toudou interrupting and saving lelouch's ass from a mutiny.

edit: And the constant cut off to another scene when someone is about to say something is getting rather annoying too. Rolo with his Geass, C.C about Viletta (granted we already know the answer to this). It's like they brought up something interesting then just threw tits and ass at you and then you gotta watch the next ep just to hear the end of that conversation. The only good things that came out of this ep is Suzaku finally has a goal instead of "lol I'm gonna change it, dunno how but I will" and Nunnally. BOTH THINGS SPOILED BEFORE THE EP STARTED.

well Lelouch blackmailing Viletta was good too. so three things.

Lol, chill guys. I'll admit that I myself was hoping for a bit less of the school angle in S2, but I think it won't be as prominent from here on out now that Nunnally is in the game. On the other hand, it's a difference in perception. fanservice pantyshots aside (they are a necessary evil to up the ratings, I suppose), I don't find the school episodes to be filler at all.

Lelouch managed to get a lot done during the festival, actually. He coaxed C.C. into revealing V.V., and she will probably tell him more off-screen. He almost has Suzaku fooled (phone reaction pending). He even managed to tip Rolo's internal balance in his favor, and to blackmail Viletta. In the background, he kept on planning the OotBK's next move and arranges for Laksharta's arrival. There's a lot going on here, even if some of it receives short segments. If there is anything in this episode I could've done without, it was probably the whole "red C.C." fiasco.

It's obviously on purpose, in order not to reveal anything. You'd think that at this stage, we could get more info from then on what's going on, instead of tantalizing hints, but you can be sure that the important points like Rolo's Geass' weakness will be covered soon enough. If Kallen's reason to fight from ep 3 to 9 is any indication, I'd say we'll find out about Rolo by ep 11 at the latest
