Awesome ep. Poor Lulu, I hope he get's over this minor setback as fast as he got over Shirley's fathers death. Half an ep.

BTW Yellow is Chiba! Can't wait for the fanart. Go go Power Rangers!

Even though I think Zero alone is more Kamen Rider Black than any Super Sentai loner what's with whole Black Kamen getup, Power of the King (( Kingstone lol )) that makes one lonely (( The sucky life of Minami Kotaro )), wanting to destroy Britiannia that was part of him (( Golgom/Black Sun )), with a little imouto. Not to mention there's the whole Shadow Moon thingy that seems to be inherited badly by Suzaku, someone REALLY needs to make a GEASS version of this poster.

Being the old-schooler, all I can imagine is Chiba hogging up curry rice.
The age-old formula of Yellow Ranger = loves curry

Literally, left-handed one-handed horizontally laid blade thrust.

This move is not a "unique" special techinque like the one Okita uses, and can be commonly practiced. However, it was said to be Saitou's favorite attack method.
I'm aware that the Gatotsu was Watsuki's own invention. Nonetheless, I'd still love to see a Rurouni Kenshin homage through Toudou. (Even though it's highly improbable...)

What, the same way Gainax makes fun of Eva? Pretty much.

But parodies don't need to be based on humour. Elements of Gundam are almost certainly used in Code Geass, but it is like using the same pieces of a jigsaw puzzle but made an entirely different picture with it.

What, like Hellsing Ultimate?
And have 4-5 months gap between releases for 45 minute episodes? And indefinite delays without warning?

That would kill you.

Hmm, I kinda understand why they need a break - art quality is already going down(just look at the distorted faces around 2:40 and 6:30).

Just remembered, Cecile has been exposed to Lelouch, who has just now learned that Suzaku is piloting Lancelot. I'm sure Lulu's able to make the connection. I'd like an episode where she gets mind-hacked for info, or even kidnapped.

And yeah, the animation quality really fell.

In many ways this episode is one of the turning points of the series in my opinion. With many ways that Lelouch could choose to deal with Suzaku. Earlier in the series when Lelouch said he didn't have the nerves for this, I think those words fit perfectly here. Also, you have Lelouch slowly slipping into the madness that Mao had. Still makes me sick, Suzaku playing with Nunnally while protecting the people that put her in the state she's in.

Very cheesy music (as many already said) playing for awhile at the beginning when they brought out Todou's new machine.

Edit: The lame music is not to be confused with the good background music that starts when Todou starts talking to Suzaku.

I got the feeling C.C. was watching the whole fight from somewhere, and she is probably the only one who can re-steady his nerves.

Laksharta working for the OoBk's gives them their own science division. By that look on her face watching Lancelot move, she's probably guessed who designed it.

I really want to know what is Lelouch said to Todou when he was freeing him.

I personally haven't succumbed to death or madness yet.

though having alucard's voice guest star on this show every week or so certainly helps. P:


funny how Hellsing won't actually finish till years after code geass. stupid OVAs not following weekly schedules. ;_;

Agreed. I couldn't help but think that the OotBK's Knightmares were going to merge and form some sort of Super-Robo-Knightmare( "And I form the Head!").... I mean really... I blame the BGM for making me think that way...

Cheers.

Though I wonder how long Suzaku can keep it up before he starts following Lelouch's descent into madness. He was practically breaking down when he was ordered to kill Toudou. He's going to need Lloyd and Cecile to help him more than ever.

very excellent in this episode
as i expected euphie will choose suzaku being her bodyguard "because euphie love one-side to suzaku???"

and for lulu he's succeed toudou will be his friend but i know lulu feeling when he saw suzaku in lancelot cockpit in which his enemy
in the end of this episode lulu laughing because he's stiil don't believe that suzaku is his enemy or traitor "poor lulu" (in my opinion)

in my opinion shirley memory will be back again

and the last i hope suzaku will help lulu "wanna see his face when he know lulu is zero" like to see they work together

since when was lulu considered a madman?
also i found that the fight between suzaku and toudou after his unmasking pretty honorable ~ it wasnt like he was forced to fight but rather mutual agreement on both sides to "duel" (just like the good old times )
