question, does the "live" geass have a flaw? i mean why would suzaku shoot freya at a nearby enemy when in the situation that it hits the target (guren), he gets included in the blast area? or is lancelot immune to freya?

The "live" geass has the flaw of only doing what's convenient for the drama.

Suzaku actually evades Karen's attack before firing that thing - he could have as well used the time to evacuate the machine, but instead fires a weapon which is unlikely to kill his attacker.

The only slight justification for this is indeed Nina screaming that firing the thing will somehow save him. Maybe it affected his subconsciousness.

I can't imagine he would have thought it would have hit the Guren, its slow as hell. I can't imagine how the Lancelot wold be immune, but stranger things have happened.

If he hadn't shot it, it wouldn't have mattered if he evaded, because Kallen would just go after him again and attempt another finishing blow. Firing the weapon, under the control of the geass mind you, is the only way the writers want you to believe Suzaku could have lived since Kallen would most definately retreat after it.

Lol I agree, but I believe powerful bombs are meant to be slow. Why would Nina even want to upgrade Lancelot to be immune to freya.

If Suzaku ejects, Karen would just more conveniently go after him and finish him off. I remember in this episode Kinoshita ejected, then a knightmare frame went after his "escape pod" and shot it.

I agree with this, those last words Nina said probably had an effect on Suzaku and then trigerred the "live on" geass.

Lancelot still has no ejection block, and the SEITEN Guren was portrayed as *much* faster than the Lancelot. He didn't really have many options, except maybe begging for his life.

Uh, no? His geass triggered when he was resigned to dying. Nina had no effect on him.

He meant Nina's barking about firing freya and he'll live sentence, might have effect him (and live geass) to fire freya thinking he'll live by doing so.

Karen and her Guren is looking more and more like Domon and his G Gundam
(I know, people said it before, but it still bugs me)

Are you a communist Yorae? It was Japan's right to decide to whether to sell sakuradite or not. That's like saying it's okay to rob and destroy stores for not selling you their products.

Edit: For Japan, selling the Brittania empire sakuradite would be equivalent to gunstore owner selling guns to men in skimasks.

Your missing the point here. Japan was screwing around with britannia they were selling them but japan raised prices to rather large levels in order to screw britannia once that is done they wouldn't sell anymore while other powers got off with neither a hitch. That is a clear sign of economic opression screwing others to make japan richer in short japan asked for it when pissing off a super power.

That kind of stunt will work in third world country but not against a super power.

If japan had remained truly neutral then none of this would have happened but no suzaku's dad made that choice and that cost him.

Okay, I didn't know that Japan was selling high price to only Brittania. Yeah I guess I would be pissed too if I were Brittanian. LOL

Isn't this just from the Novel which isn't anywhere close to canon? I don't remember anywhere in the anime that states that Japan did this. They possibly used their control of Sakuridite for their own personal financial gain but beyond that I don't see them screwing over Brittania without screwing over all the rest of the countries. Japan in the anime isn't shown to have taken a preference between Brittania, E.U. or the Chinese Federation.
