Man, the more I hear, the more I dont want to watch. It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

The similarities scares me
I don't see how. The similarities are only link to the script, not characters. As I said before, if Euphie is capable of true power, Cornelia would have been the first person she would influence. Lacus had played dumb in early GS, shown by how she insisted her prison cell door keep unlocking itself... and thanks to her dumb bimbo act, her captors believed her.

It would take a miracle for Euphie to step up to the plate. Lacus is prepared to be cruel when she has to, but I don't see Euphie doing the same.

WEll.. miracle could easily happen.. its a story afterall.. Back in GS, I wouldnt have never suspect that in the end, Lacus became the most powerful character, you get the feel that she's gonna be around Kira/Athrun, but never would the thought that she'll lead...

Same here, its hard to imagined that Yuffie would be there uptop at the end, but it doesnt mean it wouldnt happen.

Judging from all those comparisons, I'm guessing the only thing Euphie has in common with the Pink Princess is the hair color.

But seriously, as I look at it now, Euphie has neither shown great influence nor conviction in what she wants yet. It's too early to make a definite comparison.

Actually, it could turn the other way round aswell .. dont be too pessimistic.

Honestly, tho there are a number of similarities between CG and GS, I dont really mind... As long as CG dont repeat the very same mistake that GS/GSD did .. I'm enjoying this series up till now,and prays that the level of story telling wouldnt drop.

Suzaku/Yuffie = Kira/Lacus reborn? Go ahead .. as long as the story telling are good .. why not? Maybe in coming year .. we could watch CG and think .. this is how GSD should be, neh

In Euphie's position, Lacus would have killed at least two of her siblings by now.
Don't get me wrong. I don't think Euphie is a fraction as developed as Lacus. There are just signs right now, from her 2 major events: 1) her running and ordering the purists to stand down and her stance with those Britannian tourists, and 2) her standing up in the hostage situation. It is true that she has not "shown" any other true powers, but her actions in those situations do show that she has a back-bone and is willing to take action based on her beliefs. She is shown as relatively new to the power arena, but signs do lead to her developing as a character to do possibly more.

And no, Lacus would not kill 2 of her siblings. She would more than likely coerced them or put them in a situation where they would be useful and can't refuse her orders. At the same time she would have always known the whereabouts of Lulu and used him as well to achieve her goals, with him being persuaded to believe in her ideals.

Why try to convince Cornelia? It might not be the same mindset as hers, but she probably believes her sister is doing what is right with her sister's beliefs. Euphie is currently not bent out to control the empire. She is only doing what she believes need to be done for her position (as someone way down the line from the throne, who most likely will end up as a governor for one of the territories). Since it looks like she will be the one in charge of Japan, her goals right now seem to make peace with the people and to gain their support.

Now if it ever happened that she will have to fight for the throne, I am sure she'll gather all her loyal supporters to defend her at that time. She is just currently assessing the situation and her surroundings, and she is determining who she can rely on (Suzaku being the first) to build her support team.

No, I don't believe she is as strong as Lacus, but I do believe the story (although superficial at times) will lead her to show a much stronger person with major influences.

I still don't really like her character so far, but I just wanted to give the opinion on what I believe she is and what direction they want to take with her.

If Euphie has to be the last winner (I dun expect it ), I'd rather she be a second Lacus. Suzaku is much more stubborn than Kira already and if Euphie is just some kind but "strong" char............. I 've had enough of those goody-goody chars who unintentionally harvest victory from others' acts

Just a small question: it seems there is no direct link (http) for this ep, ne ?

its the fact kallen pretends to be a weak person when shes not. a fact that "school Lelouch" knows from episode 3 (i.e., Lelouch knows anyway, but Kallen knows Lelouch knows she's faking, without Kallen knowing that Lelouch knows Kallen is a terrorist. )

^ Which is why I said he was referring to her putting up a 'mask'. '_' Unless you're just elaborating for me.

^ It's alright, after reading the past post - I realised I wasn't being clear enough and was just rambling.
