That's a question I should be asking YOU ...

Still on #animesuki eh? Post more and watch Boondocks man, I'm telling you it's anime now...

I also agree that people kinda forget how dawg-eat-dawg Kira used to have to fight before FREEDOM and ultimatley GSD destroyed his character...Suzaku doesn't quite fit the comparison as he has simply been as good if not better than everyone from the moment he got Lancelot which isn't so l33t it can't have troubles, but yes I think he has some kind of advancment as seen with the spiderman moves he's shown...

Actually Suzaku had a typical Gundam progression. Wins first battle (Ghetto) because his unit can resist the enemy guns and then finishes them off while they are all "NO our peashooters aren't working" Win's second battle (Purist faction conflict) because he has a new type of melee weapon that is more advanced than anything the enemy has. Win's third battle (Raikou) because he has a stronger type of gun. That's basically it. Less pilot skill and more new technology.

I don't think you can pin it all of lack of skills. Just that he doesn't need to only rely on that. I seriously doubt he'd lose his skills just because he is piloting a new mecha. I think that'll only make him more dangerous. Actually, I share a similar opinion of Kallen, though obviously she seems to always be a rung below Suzaku in terms of pure skills. And it was Kallen who got a massive power upgrade in her mecha. Suzaku did get a new gun + energy shield and that was about it.

Aside from excellent piloting skills has Suzaku actually shown any superhuman moves? And I do mean actual supernatural capabilities, not something that just makes him good at fighting.
You missed my point.

Sunrise staff had made it clear that Suzaku's physical capabilities and skills are of a supernatural origin, even if it looked normal from the outside.

The fact that he is good at fighting IS supernatural. It didn't have to be, but it is. Sunrise had told us outright that Suzaku's background is still a secret. The only info they can confirm so far is that Suzaku is still a human-being.

STILL a human being?


Don't tell me he actually is the Vermilion Bird of the South

Essentially, someone asked if Suzaku is a human. And Sunrise said yes. This is after revealing Suzaku's physical capabilities are mysterious, unnatural, and not to be discussed until the plot gets there.

The "still" part still spooks me, unless that's word you added in.

You are just reading too much into it. The only thing Sunrise said was "yes" to the question of "is Suzaku a human?".

He's human, but one granted with super abilties like Lelouch is human, but with special powers.

whoa. okay. now suckaku is superhuman.

anyways. what could caused it? genetic mutation? or? orange experiments?
how can it be linked to the plot? could it be that suzaku was meant to monitor lelouch and turn on him if anything goes wrong?

Well, with the exception of this physical abilties, other abilties he may have have been hinted at - remember the episode when he could apparently see CC inside the Gawain? She was going to ask him something - maybe related to his origins, but at that time, Lelouch's Geass started to level up, so she never got to finish her sentence...

good point. however i can't understand the fact that he killed his dad for no reason. just coz he wants japan to surrender -.-. hmm. could it be britinnia kidnapped him and "enigineered" on him? and how can it be such a coincidence that suckaku and lelouch were childhood friends? i think he was sent to monitor him without suckaku himself knowing it.

I'm thinking it's more of an impulsive thing.

Seriously, stop making Suzaku some sort of robot. Although what he does is frustrating to viewers, he has his clear logic that quite a few people would actually agree to if it wasn't for our hero Lelouch.

I have no idea if Brittania was/is involved in Suzaku at that point, but the reason that he wanted Japan to surrderer was because that continued resistence to Brittania would in his opinion have cost a needless amount of lives. His father, however, didn't agree with this and thus Suzaku apparently saw no other way out than killing him .

Well he was a kid, and I dont think kids need that much reason, nor does he do much reasoning before he does something Lacking various experiences in life means one's bound to make mistakes at one juncture or another.

But I don't buy much into this Suzaku's a superhuman idea. He's just a determined and skilled Knightmare pilot right now, and perhaps, that thing with C.C might just be a side effect of them making indirect contact earlier in Season 1

Seriously, does people think that a 10 year old actually has the same thought process as a teenage when it comes to killing?

Well, perhaps, perhaps not . But you have a point, his only thought at that time may have bene "I don't want more people to die!" (simple thought enough for a kid of that age, yes?) so...

Also remember that this IS fiction

Suzaku didn't plan it. It was more of a spur of the moment thing out of panic, fear and confusion. The whole thing is pretty silly really, you gotta be pretty messed up to even think about killing your dad at 10.
