Death doesn't solve anything, only the appearance of it. He has a logical mind, and I think that's how he would do it. Besides if the world goes to shit again, who better to work from the shadows other than an immortal mastermind?

when you WANT to die, death solves everything
and, as established, thats what he wanted

and he'd still be a douche if he didn't plan to die

I doubt he really gives a shit about that when bigger things are at stake.

zero-requiem is about lelouch atoning for all the shit he did
in blood

and if it isn't, and he really DID weasel his way out of it, then he screwed over the people he loves most
which makes him, a douche

W/e I've made my point. I'm not doubting he did some very Kira-tastic things. But it made him all that much more lovable.

No, the official word was, and is "He is dead, sleeping forever in his grave".
Unless you are one of the people confused by a line taken out of context of one of Taniguchi interview.

The whole " It's up to viewers to decide"
The end of the line was "...If it's an happy ending or a bad ending for Lelouch". No one in the staff ever implied the ending was open to interpretation. The feeling is up to you, not the fact the guy died.

That doesn't mean he's dead...and yeah I'd like a source on that "official word" you've referenced.

"He is dead and I think it was an happy ending cause he died protecting those he loved, but it's up to the viewers to see if it's an happy ending or a bad one for him" doesn't mean he is dead ?

Guess I have yet to understand the meaning of this line, if it doesn't speak for itself.

So Taniguchi said he was dead.
Okouchi said he was dead.
C.C. said he was dead.
Do we need Lelouch shouting "I am DEAD ! " as well ? :'P

Nope, every month, a new person needs to say outloud that Lelouch is dead.
...I guess in a way you are right. But still.

Happy ending because he died protecting people? LOL!

He died after murdering a ton of people needlessly to satisfy his own ego. It's a shame it wasn't Kallen or Cornelia who impaled him.

Btw, if there's a new CG it wouldn't be that shocking if they resurrected Lelouch, would it? I have a feeling that a lot of folks would nerd rage over that, IF they even went that route with CG...

It probably wouldn't be a good series but it's in the realm of posibility...(see: Gundam Seed Destiny)

Why Cornelia, of all people, who quite possibly murdered at least as many people?

Pretty much. Lelouch created the Zero Requiem partly because he had already passed the Despair Event Horizon, and his previous Thanatos Gambit, where he tried isolating himself with Charles, didn't work.

Been gone for awhile, gimme a report, private! (lol?)

I think Lelouch realized there was more things important then his own little world. That itself is a perspective.

Lelouch thought he done "Passed the Rubicon", the point of No Return. I think he may have been rash at first, but he did as resolved.

Perspective, as in in my opinion. Now let the Solstice Bashing... Begin! (lol..?)

As long as it's ambiguous enough of an ending for the story to go on I believe it's possible.
