I'm sure they could further add to the flavor of authenticity by shouting banzai when they committ suicide.

I'd say such Cornelia character development will be shortly followed by her death in the next ep (or thereafter). Speaking of Her Royal Hotness Cornelia also wins this episode for using a gunblade...

Spoiler:

Not much C.C it seems, but I thought meganeko Yuffie was kind of cute

League of Black Knights?

I'm sorry, but that's just too stupid for me to even laugh at...and the way they look doesn't help either...guess every series has to have it's not-so-good points.

The episode was superb, another great milestone for Code Geass. Zero's knights have arrived!

What were those again? Black Knights? :rofl: I'd say they would be more suited to being in a restaurant or a vigilante corps with those uniforms.

Minus the really ugly costumes, I thought this was rather a strong episode almost as strong as #5.

-Strangely enough I think Suzaku and Euphemia kind of resemble Kira and Lacus especially in regards to the character designs for both female characters.

Do the other students find out Suzaku is the pilot of Lancelot or is he sperated from the others before piloting? Wonderinc cause it seems Shirly, Milly, etc are in a bunker while he's fighting.

I like where this show is going
It's Kira Yamato vs. Yagami Light (or at least that's the closest guy I can find). And of course Zero / Lelouch is far superior than Light...



I'm going to reserve judgment about the uniform, but this episode was great as ever. But the glasses girl still piss me off. We'd better see some character development /growth for her, or I want to see her dead.

Kimura as usual is making fun (sort of) of Gundam Seed again. It's pretty obvious when you see Suzaku and Euphemia, who are supposed to be analogs of Kira and Lacus, appearing powerless and helpless (especially when Suzaku's trying about not being able to protect...this would never happen to Jesus Kira) while Machiavellian Lelouch achieves his goals. I really got a kick out of that

I also noticed the lack of Pizza Hut. That made me really sad.

Also, no new Lelouch next week, that makes me sad too

Did anyone see the scan with Lelouch GRAPPLING C^2's great ass? Well done lelouch. This show IS Code GREAT ASS after all...

Episode 8 was fairly good; I'm impressed to see Lelouch so willing to confront Cornelia again just after his near defeat in the last episode. The climax/resolution of the episode weren't so good, though... It was somewhat of a letdown to see everyone rescued in rafts.

I must say that the uniform for Lelouch's new Black League of Knights (or Black Knight Brigade, depending on translation) looks a lot better than the pseudo-80's getup the original Resistance group had... **shudders at the thought of Ougi's hair** Black is the new hotsexy color, yar~

I thought that part wasn't too bad. He needed to show that he's an 'ally of the weak.' Plus I don't think I'd stand any of them dead. Unless you had in your mind a better way of them being rescued.

Well I was impressed by the plot twists in this episode. Unexpected and welcome.
Spoiler:


Also seems C.C's airtime is directly proportional to the inclusion of pizza. This is not a good sign.
