Yes, yes, we know.
There are five hundred thousand fanatic girls all taking a turn pissing at Kaguya in the Japanese boards too.
Of course, they flame pretty much every female characters that gets in the way of their yaoi fantasies, so it doesn't say much.

They also flame Orihime like she killed their mothers or something, and constantly flame ANYONE who even dares mention her name, and tell them to go to hell. I think they are the biggest nutcases in the fandom.

Or maybe they can't stand the fact that an anime character is cuter than them all... wait, did I really write that?

Eh, except I actually like C.C. and Kallen both of which are possible love interests for Lelouch. I wouldn't mind either one ending up with him. Though to be honest I think he has more important things to worry about then romance.

I bet if Kaguya gone terminator instead of Euphie you'll like her more

among other things, the pacing of this episode was excellent. i thought that the juxtaposition of euphemia on her deathbed with images of zero being welcomed and adored by the japanese people, in particular, was very well-done. in terms of events happening, the episode was dense, but not overly so, and certain moments of intensity had a great impact, such as this scene between c.c. and lelouch:

Face it, all of the girls associated with Zero end up as his sidekick with the exception of C.C. She is probably the single most interesting person of that group. Kallen is simply the hot chick who obeys his every whim (like other people have said, it's somewhat chauvinistic). And Kaguya is a calm and cute little lady that packs a punch.

Kallen....must admit I haven't been as impressed with her lately. I preferred her in the beginning. Now she seems like just a Zero-groupie. Shame actually. But I do think things will get interesting when she actually finds out who Zero is. I'm very curious how she will react. I still like her but I wish she'd not blindly follow Zero.

C.C. is awesome. Though I don't see Rakshata becoming a Zero groupie either. She seems to have her own agenda.

Umm... Just about every time Suzaku's had a conversation with an enemy (the first few times with Zero, with Toudou, etc.), he's been calm. This time's no different.

Actually, this conversation pretty much gives the same "I'm going to kill you, but good luck" kind of feel as the Toudou one.

It's either a very straight forward design where Suzaku has revealed to Lelouch that he knows what went on, or it sets the audience up to believe that Suzaku knows when he actually doesn't. It'd be so easy to make Suzaku go ballistic and yell and scream at Lelouch, at which point we know for sure that Suzaku knows and there will be no hope for them to cooperate.

Its a bit sad that both Lulu and Suzaku are on the same path now Lulu is on a path to kill his Father while Suzaku is on a path to kill Zero

Well, its just too hard to believe at this point that he doesn't. Under normal circumstances, you really wouldn't be calling your best friend with his newly deceased sister's cellphone to tell him to tell everyone not to look at the sky because you're consumed by hatred and will kill someone (so what? Everyone knows Suzaku's killed before... Not many knows or cares that he was killing because he's a goody two shoes and now he isn't). And like many have said, the conversation pretty much sets it up, ie, asking about Nunnally after Lelouch's cryptic remark.

So no, if the latter's true, then the writers are REALLY out of their minds.

Just read the summary....can't believe that happened. *SIGH* Guess the final battle is finally coming up. I don't know who to support right now. I used to like Lelouch but now I can't say I really like him. On the other hand, I never did like Suzaku for some reason so......AAAHHH! I don't think I'll be able to sleep properly now. Nice episode btw.

It appears that Suzaku is referring to Mariannes death and how Nunnally was caught up in the crossfire. He could just as well be pondering Lelouch's opinion on revenge, since he has never had reason to take revenge but Lelouch has.

But I suppose the first instincts are always correct.

A guy here, and I found the Kaguya scene annoying too. You was far more likeable in previous episode, with her looking smart and determined. No she is like a typical fan-girl get over-excited about finally talking to her idol.


But the important thing is: What kind of geass did Suzaku get? He most likely got a geass from V.V. right?

Oh boy we get at least 2 months to speculate on that...

Perhaps, but coming right after Lelouch said that he had no intention of backing down, for Suzaku to ask if "it was for Nunnally's sake"... he didn't even ask what it was that Lelouch had done, or was going to do.

The feeling I got from that conversation was of two old friends saying a last goodbye.

That's definitely clearer and straight-forward.

Especially when we don't even know what happened during that conversation.

Oh my God, holy crap, just watched the raw. This episodes is beyond awesome. The Euphie part was kind of expected but still it's just sad. I used to hate Suzaku but after seeing this I kinda want to support him.

Lelouch onwards to the path of total domination after this. We need more Jeremiah. Nina seems she's from the Higurashi world. More Lelouch x C.C and ROFL at Lelouch's for snubbing a fine gift aka Kaguya so fast, especially when she's the one that actually OFFERRED herself. I feel that Kaguya is'nt going to give up yet

Leouch puts Light from Death Note down to shame. And the way he looked very evil at the end totally rocks. The one that differs him from Light is that Lelouch has Nunally, and I hope that she would always stays alive to prevent Lelouch not to fall into the same crappy character as Light.

And God I swear, if Sunrise make Lelouch somehow a bad guy in season 2, not just I would send hate letters, but abominations of Pizza Huts.
