Although no official announcement has been made yet, several clues hint to a second batch of 25 episodes arriving after a two-season break (ep 26 should air somewhere around September, IIRC). And, yeah, it's pretty much certain there will be a second season coming our way.

As for the third season thingy, that's just a wild rumor or a forged hearsay. It's likely CG will only span 50 episodes + 6/7 optional recaps.

Same goes for the princesses. The Second Princess, as her title shows, was born after the First, but before the Third. And so on.

On the other hand, the succession line doesn't care whether you're male or female. You're ordered according to your birth date - and therefore, your age. The firstborn automatically inherits the throne, no matter if he's a prince or a princess. The last one most likely gets nothing...merely a number in case something catastrophic happens to all other members.

Bottom line: Lelouch is the eighth prince - the eighth and youngest male heir - but he is the Emperor's seventeenth child (if you still don't understand, it simply means that seventeenth half-brothers/half-sisters were born before him) and consequently he is the seventeenth in the succession line. At the rear end.

Which means that if ALL sixteen heirs (princes and princesses) before Lelouch die, then the throne will automatically go to him, even if he's one of the youngest Imperial Children around (Nunally being possibly the youngest of all).
Actually I think you are mistaken on the way the naming system or succession works. Well either that or there are some contradictions on the website.

Lelouch is the 8th prince and 17th in line. So you would expect there to be 16 people older than him who would succeed before him. However Euphemia is only 16 yrs old yet she is the 3rd princess. Based on that as Lelouch is 17yrs old you would expect there to only be 9 successors in front of him. 7 princes and 2 princesses yet this isnt the case. So unless I'm forgetting something it's definitely not based on age.

I am not sure if this has been cover in the past but each has a different prefix before Britannia in their name. I am sure it may only had to do from where their mother is from or gave birth to them.

Or between the time Lelouch was 17th in line and Euphie became 3rd princess, a lot of royals died?

It probably has something to do with which wife of the emperor got married first or has higher status, regardless of how old the potential heirs are. This would the screwy age order of the children of the royal family, but then again it could be something else, like the emperor's preferences or something illogical like that.

Anything C.C. wears is a fashion statement. Even when its prison attire.

Do you think that "structured geass" could exist? I mean a geass order is a series of simple actions stated in a complex order like "write a sign on that wall evrey day". This means:
1) check out evrey day.
2) going to the wall.
3) make the sign.

So an apparently "simple" order is quite complex in reality: could this complexity being enhanced further by making the list of the given orders longer and longer? If an order like "obey to any orders I give you" functions then the Geass is an overkill...

It is unknown if an open ended order can be give like "obey any orders I give you." So far no such orders have been so vague. Perhaps it doesn't work or else he'd do that a lot. My personal guess is that a geass needs to be partitioned in a person's mind and an order like this is too open eneded to be partitioned.

However, returning to your first point, geasses are definitely not structured. He gives simple orders and the target figures out any necessary steps on their own. For instance, he says "Let me go with all your strength" and Orange-kun first gives an order to let Zero go and when it doesn't work, he then decides to attack anyone who tries to stop Zero. This means that every order involves the decision making ability of the victim.

The original purpose was a binding suit for C.C., but C.C. still wears it voluntarily because she likes it. Seriously, in an official Code Geass article, C.C.'s favorite clothes turn out to be her constriction suit and Lelouch's clothes.

ohhhh She likes Lelouch's clothes? Is there a hint of romance here?







tho sadly, i think she's a practical person lanky bishie like Lulu probably have slimmer waistline like most women so i m not surprised if C.C likes it cause it fits her the best hah.

This requirment could also mean that "open ended orders" can be given because then the decision making ability of the victim can decide what to do after receiving an order. Now that I think it better an open ended order
Spoiler for episode 19:

I hope this possibility won't be used in the series because it would make the geass cheap and lame: Lelouch can just geass all the world and become the king of evreything!!!

As an aside: I'm sure people asked what the "geass" word meant: but what about the "code" word? What is a code? To put it in simple terms it's an alphanumeric string (for our computers, but it can be anything with an unique pattern) that gives someone the access to special functions, like the "self-destruction code" for example.
A code, to function, must be built-in within some device, of course: a ship without a self-destruction code won't self-destruct, that's obvious, isn't it?
Then this clearly implies that humans have all some kind of built-in code (the geass) that allows to control them in various ways: reading-only way (Mao), writing-only way (Lelouch) and perhaps even a mixed way (a mix of Mao and Lelouch, a truly overkill geass I say).
From the fact that humans have all a built-in code someone can ask then: if the code is artificial, does it mean that the humans itself are artificial?
Considering CC not being human (unless in Geass universe people can get shot in their head and walk happily some hour after like nothing happened) my question and potential answer is quite plausible. I don't think the "code" word was put into the title just because it sounds cool paired with the "geass" one!

Lelouch hypothesized that the geass works by invading and rewiring the cerebrum. We saw in eps 4 and 10 how he uses it to tell people to ignore things. Now it's not that they don't see him; the geass activates so that their brains comply with the order by not caring that he is there or disregarding his presence. They have been brainwashed basically, so that anytime they see him, they don't notice.
That theoretically should allow for open-ended orders. The geass enforcement activation could just be something along the lines as "whenever you hear a command from me (my voice perhaps), you must obey" all you need is a condition for activation, like for wall-girl and
Spoiler:

All bets are off until we find out about Shirley though.

I don't want Lelouch to just go and geass everybody into obedient slaves, but honestly I'd been hoping for more interesting and cunning usage of the Geass to achieve things, but that sadly seems to not be the case for the 1st season at least. He uses it like what once per episode max now? They mostly consist of memory wipes, ignoring things and small tasks (take this walkie talkie here), nothing big and grandiose. I want to see him get creative.
