Any mech Tamiki pilots is more invincible than that POS sword since:

1.Anyone who uses that sword gets trounced.
2.Any mech Tamiki pilots allows him to survive against anyone.

Therefore Tamiki>>>>>>>>>>Excalibur.

Bah. Only Suzaku can beat the Uber Sword and he only can do it with his HAX Mecha.

With her in her state of blind rage, she can't hope to win.
Yep, exactly.

also, the characters who usually have something to protect in a fight end up winning, Suzaku has everything to lose and everything to gain. Kallen in the other hand has nothing to gain, and everything to lose. She kinda reminds me of Luna from GSD. Except she's a better pilot than Luna ever was lol.

OMG THIS EPISODE WAS SO FUCKIN GOOD! .... man ...i honestly can say i DID NOT see that coming ... Lelouch ended controlling Schneizel with GEASS!!!! awwww that shit was so off-guard.

Everybody knew Nunnally wasnt blind after Lelouch got rid of his father ... he said he used Geass to make her think she was blind and couldnt walk. I thought the whole thing was funny, because i cant imagine someone going blind just from seeing their mother dead. and crippled because he mom fell on her because nowhere in either seasons did they say or mention she got shot in her legs.

But man ... Lelouch is the fucking MAN! .... i bet he going to end up controlling the world through Schniezel and Black Knights without the BLack Knights even realizing it. Man i cant get over how he just popped up behind Schniezel and using that Geass on him. That would fuck him up if his Geass broke and he regained his consciousness ... something like losing and being controlled by Lelouch would kill his pride BIG TIME.

I wish they could make the last episode a special hour episode.

Er, though, ZR might not entail him controlling the world...more his disappearance from it.

He isn't disputing the relationship between real life and science fiction, rather the breach in continuity within the CG world. CG, although it employs fictional elements, doesn't break it's own fictional rules. I.E. Lelouch cannot use his geass more than once on a single person. Basic laws of physics also apply in this world as they do in ours, in fact, it is designed to mimic all the aspects of our world with the exception of the existence of geass, and the path that history took in the American Revolution.
The point is, creating an "anti" FLEIA device crosses the line of developmental schemes we have seen so far in the series. It is entirely too fantastic and thus hampers the feel of the story. This coupled with the "everyone is actually alive" revalations we've seen so far is discontinuous to the story. Being shot by a machine gun in the leg is largely fatal. According to the destruction we've seen from recent FLEIA uses, there is no reason that Guilford should be alive and merely blinded.
These are just convenient plot mechanics used to justify a specific ending and still allow the use of "omg a main character died" plot twists.
Honestly, the show has gotten less intuitive/creative in its use of character motivation, tactical battles, plot twists, and science fiction technology. This isn't to say that it's bad, in fact it is still above par, however, when the bar is set so high by previous episodes, it's only natural that mediocrity rears its ugly head.

It didn't hamper anything at all. And if that bothers you, I take it you don;t read that many comics then huh?

If Mao can get continually shot in the torso and live, then Cornelia can live by being shot in the legs. There is no problem with it IMO.

And Guilford is alive because he was on the outskirts of the FLEIA blast. He was never fully enveloped. He could have ejected easily before it was too late. We just assumed he was dead, though him living can raise some eyebrows, it is still possible for him to have survived it. And no, not everyone is just coming back. The only ones alive are the ones that had a CHANCE at survival. Nunnally, Cornelia, and Guilford. It isn't like Shirley is walking around.

That is fine, but I still think all this stuff is just being nit-picked to death when it really shouldn't be justified IMO.

Wow. Just wow. Code Geass is one whacky roller coaster ride.

It's so ridiculous that it's entertaining. I can't make sense of much of the series since everything is twisted. It's just surprise after surprise. I think what topped it all in this ep was Suzaku's 0.04 second reaction time, which made me laugh... the power of the live on Geass.

Actually, that is probably his actual reaction time. Look at it this way. He dodged a machine gun that had .05 reaction time. So his reaction time HAS to be faster right? XD

Thank god Lloyd, Cecil, Sayoko, Milly and Rivalz are fine. Along with Shirley, they are the only characters who I love with all my heart and have no qualms in loudly waving their flags.

... I wonder what Chigusa's/Viletta's child will look like.

This is inherently wrong.

Basic laws of physics do not apply in the CG world. We could never have giant air ships which don't rely on any sort of propulsion. Knightmares themselves are not very aerodynamic, such a thing could never fly. heck, most of those battleships in CG cannot possibly fly because they're not sufficiently aerodynamic, not to mention the amount of energy required for the float units (which is complete BS btw) to over come the force of gravity.
Here's a simple example:
A modern super carrier weighs around 91000 metric tons, that's equal to 91,000,000 kilograms.
In order to suspend the thing in the air you need an engine that can produce a positive lift greater than F=ma where m= mass of the carrier, and a = g(9.80m/s^2). that force is immensely large, something like 89.18E7 N.
