The 2 big paintings and drawings of supporting characters in the ED. The drawing of angelic Shirley, etc. Nothing is given away. CC is in only one shot, consoling Lelouch like his mommy.

Nothing there really foreshadows anything or is meant to tease or give clues of the future. It's like they belong in R1 or in the middle of the entire series.

The OP is also very "subdued." We get a peek of some mecha. Not much.

The OP/ED just gives me hope for R3. It gives the feeling that this whole thing is far from "over."

And there were some shots in there that intrigued me. The map of the world immediately followed by the words lost. The weird shot of the Zangetsu launching into god knows what, and the shot of the ship in outer space. Maybe I was quick to assume this series wasn't at all like Gundam when we've got space involved. Other than that it's kind of hard to pull anything from it. It looks like it was made more for fun then anything spoileriffic. It's certainly a change of pace for Sunrise.

Still think the whole Guren/Lancelot wing thing is still just a stylistic thing and that it doesn't look like the V2/Destiny Gundam's Wings of Light at all. To solid. I think they just felt they had to make it look cool and such. Actually I think it might be meant to look like a knights cape or cloak.

Some of the higher profile characters aren't in the ED either. The secondary characters are given prominance. There are 2 big drawings/paintings of supporting characters in that ED sandwiched between drawings of lelouch with cc, lelouch with suzaku, schneizel, and nunnally.


CC is in only one shot at the beginning of the ending, consoling Lelouch. Suzaku is only one shot at the end. One drawing of Nunnally. A lot of characters are missing from the ED.

How are VV and Charles not there? How is Kallen not there? Hey, where is Cornelia? No tease of floating temples.

Nothing in there gives anything away or introduces any new key relationships or future occurences.

My favorite highlights in this episode

-It showing Viletta was not just a Lelouch pawn, but actually still had thoughts of betrayal in the back of her mind.

-Jeremiah's sword up the sleeve and Sayako's kunai's

-Cornelia is an atheist and I was laughing my head off when V.V. was trying to talk but Cornelia just throws a knife right to the middle of his forehead, only for him to get up like it's nothing. I always loved moments like that, example; R2 Episode 1 when C.C. does the same after the gunshot.

-When Jeremiah slashed Sayako, for a second I really thought he killed her, and Rolo getting owned.

-Lelouch's plan with the Gerfjun Disturber, did not see that coming, but Jeremiah crying, switching allegiance and calling Lelouch "Your Majesty" I did not see either. Guess my foresight is bad.

-Ougi is going to chat with Viletta

-Shirley why did you have to mention Nunnally? Rolo will die, hopefully in a very unpleasant way. I may not have liked Shirley, but that doesn't mean I want to see her gutted.

-I give compliments to Fukuyama Jun, Lelouch's screams of agony both with Shirley and as a child were very good.

Jun-san and Miyano Mamoru are fast melting into a single voice, as far as I can tell.

you're welcome, It makes me sad because Kallen is not in the ED.

You missed Schneizel.

Oh please, it's not only the Black Knights, following them there are people from Ashford, Chinese and Britannia as well. Not all of them are happy to see Lelouch.

Is it me, or is Shirley's pose in the ED based on her final shot in the ep?

The smile looks pretty innocent. I don't sense any hostility behind it.

Why Gino is looking too serious in the OP, he is not that cheerful anymore...

If Lelouch and Kallen get together towards the end of R2 and if there is an R3 in the works or at least a new intro/ed combo towards the end. . . you know that 90% of the images will involve robot tango, embraces, etc. between both of them from then on in every op and ed. It could easilly make up for the lack of Kallen in previous openings and endings.

Because Jesus Yamato is awakening....

On a more serious note, he could be showing us his skills when he plays for real.

Damn it. We already knew Shirley was gonna die, but this kind of death, being gutted by a psycho ally, was so pointless and painful. And just when she finally accepted everything about Lelouch, too.

Great episode though.
