I don't see how exactly he could go about doing that. I mean, for one he would have to make people believe that he has magical powers. Second is that it would discredit him, though I suppose he could always say it was not her fault for what happened.

I didn't really want to go into this in the romance thread, but it was about this season Code Geass's have more than usual.

What I mean by that is more geass users, more fan service, more mech fights and upgraded knightmares, basically moving much faster than the first season and trying to pack more into each episode. I have to wonder if this is due to them trying to end the season at 50 episodes.

For the most part I understand some it.

More geass users- From what we've seen from C.C.'s flashbacks there could be an entire race of people like C.C. and V.V.; so one or two additional geass users really shouldn't be freaking anyone out.

Upgraded Knightmares- Come on you didn't really expect them to go backwards technology wise did you? Laksharta has had a year to work on developing better weapons and I've always had her ahead of Lloyd on the science end, but Suzaku's skill makes up for it.

More fanservice- Really can't excuse this one, except do any of you really have a problem with seeing Kallen in a bunny suit?

More mech fights- This is a war and we have yet to even see even a single large scale battle except Suzaku hammering some EU on a beach. So if you thought we had to much mech fighting already, you better strap in for a ton more. I just hope strategy will be involved like last season and we don't turn into an upgraded mechs vs upgraded mechs show down.

I'd hope that we limit it to just Rollo and Charles personally. Besides, most of those people like them are still a mystery.

The perfect way to counter LeLouch

Wow what an Anime!! I have ploughed through 9 episodes in one sitting, and wanting to plough right to the end in the next three days.

Anyways.

The perfect Warrior to fight someone like Lerouch, one on one is...

...a Blind Swordsman (such as Zatoichi or Invincible from "A Man Called Hero.")

"Sure, boy, shout your orders all you want!! I don't even need to look at you to cut you into ribbons!!"

In an universe occupied with physics defying mechs and centuries old cute sorceresses, this is a possible and most logical option.

In case you haven't noticed, Lelouch is so physically inept that a blindfolded geriatric grandmother with arthritis could probably beat him with one hand.

Lelouch is not a warrior. That, and you are not suppose to know he can mind control. If you know, he has already lost. That's why Lulu rarely ever uses it.

Try finding someone who can match against SUZAKU instead. Good luck with that; Suzaku is the direct opposite of Lulu, with no capacity for planning and no charisma, but with physical skills that allow him to fit into a Jet Lee film just fine.

I'm only up Episode 14, but surely you are exaggerating, sir.

It can't be that bad, can it?

Well of course it would be hard if it's not a shovel, right?

True, but the point is that Taniguchi himself stated he wanted to make Lelouch a weak hero since mecha heroes are almost all strong ace pilots.

He lost to Milley in a Victorian style dress during a run. This does not make him pathetic physically how again? >_>

I thought that was the best scene in that episode with Lelouch being overtaken by everyone and having it made even more clear when Millay passes him up.

Oh... that bad....

I guess up to Episode 14, the show has been pretty darn nice to him.

Ikari Shinji, eat your heart out.

I think he is at least better than Shinji. It's hard to top him.

But he's an evil corpse... still the hand gestures from both are rather eerily similar in 0_o factor....

Not that it matters, but the characters, knightmare and mecha sections on the R2 website have been reorganised by faction, this update has been left undocumented.

The only other thing that's been changed is that the icon for Guren Kashoushiki no longer erroneously refers to it as "Guren Nishiki Kashoushiki".
