After re-watching it, that guy driving the wagon at the end either jacked lelouch's collar or it is lelouch. at 22:03. On a stream if you can find it.

All good things must come to an end. Come on, this "train wreck" wasn't that bad, was it?

RIP Lelouche. While it's possible Sunrise may yet come back to milk more from this franchise, the story concerning our anti-hero is no more.

First, Chiba, who has a crush on Toudou, has probably become the first ever Sunrise character to survive all the way to the end after making the proverbial death flag back in episode 16, when before going to battle, she said "After this war, there's something I want to tell you." Congratulations, Chiba.

Second, LOL at Schneizel being beaten to a pulp and tied to a pole.

Third, Lulu, I know you want to troll the world, but how could you dress your own sister in such rags? Maybe it's my closet lolicon mind at work, but for some reason I'm, ahem, "turned on" by it.

Fourth, the way "Zero" ran, I'm sure everyone must have guessed that it's Suzaku. With his "live on" Geass still active, him surviving the explosion of the Lancelot easily becomes plausible, however improbable.

Fifth, LMAO at Orange-kun finally fulfilling his dream of running an orange farm, and with Anya of all people. Now where'd that come from?

Finally, poor C.C. I was expecting she would go together with Lulu to the "world of C". I'm sure the drive of that cart she's stowing away on is just some random peasant, while C.C. now communicates with Lulu in the "world of C", much like how she conversed with Marianne.


With Lulu and presumably Schneizel gone, would that make Cornelia next in line to the throne, if Britannia even continues to exist at all?


Oh crap, Sunrise, especially Director Taniguchi, YOU NEVER EXPLAINED WHAT THE HELL GEASS IS!!! Or C.C.'s real name, for that matter!


But still, this "train wreck" was good entertainment if you ask me.

Uh...fanmade, Shadows. That merchant's wearing...well, I can't describe it well, so a 'semi-veil'. Not a collar.

Ahh, well. Still it is sunrise. I hope the DVD version will show more or atleast give us C.C.'s name.

Watching the RAW of this episode only strengthens my belief that people are overreacting saying it's bad. I cannot give a proper judgements or comments till I see the subs, but what I saw was brilliant.

Seems that lelouch is dead, really dead. I watched the s** and I don't really have any doubts left about that.

Now that I understand what they were saying, I liked it a bit more XD. But still, it doesn't resolve anything.

Kallen understood what suzaku and lelouch were doing when she saw zero (suzaku).

And C.C..................... no answers about the mysteries of the geass.

You wanted a bloodbath just so you could fuel your urge for angst?

Sorry, that's twisted.


Velden, C.C. has raised her voice a tad many a time in her little self-conversations. Also, why would Lelouch fake his death when he knows he has to die, when he wants to die? To throw all of that aside is stupid.

Just watched the episode with subs finally .
Orange was badass especially when he jumped out of his self destructed Siegfried and landed on Mordred to attack Anya .
Quite Kallen finally figured out what Lulu and Suzaku were up to at the end .

Overall the season above average . Its nowhere as bad as some make it out to be , some people jumped onto the geass hate train way too fast IMO. My biggest gripe would be the pacing , an extra 3-4 episodes would have been perfect .

As for the ending , my take on it is that Lulu's probably alive .
1)Why on earth would Jeremiah allow Lelouch to be killed . He even smirks when he allows Suzaku past him.
2)C.C's reaction . Its been clear for all to see in the past episode or two that see loves Lelouch . If he is dead then i doubt she would have been shown happy and smiling at the end .
3) The driver of the wagon . They never ever show his face or give a close up . This is probably the most blatant piece of evidence . For those who think he's an old geezer ,

He doesn't seem to look like one when zoomed in , the "collar" of his shirt just makes him look old.

Knowing sunrise , they'll probably include some extra scenes in the blurays/dvds in order to milk Code Geass to hell and back .

PS : We see Shen Hu in the background when Ougi and Nunnally shake hands , I assume Xing Ke lives?

Wow, that was one helluva ending. I always thought Lelouch's plan was to get everyone pissed off at him, and then have himself disappear. I didn't expect that he planned to die. Lelouch, you're the freaking man.

* Jeremiah was probably let in on the plan. And, seeing as, next to Suzaku, he was as loyal as they came, he would have allowed him to do it. And Suzaku's the Knight of Zero after all.

* C.C. said that she would live life to the fullest. Lelouch, though dead, obviously affected her well enough to live positively. What, did you expect her to be hunched in a corner and wailing?

* The driver's a random merchant.

Just for the record, my actual non protest/who gives a damn vote was a 7.5 which rounds out to a 7 or 8, probably leading more towards a 7. Just so ya know.....

My overall series rating when the chance comes is about an 8. I really and truly liked this show a lot, what can I say. Still, Gundam 00 is in the end the better show IMO and I can't wait for it too start. Not going to blog it though....no no no no.

By the way, everytime somebody says something like "Knowing Sunrise" I can't help but think "Pfffft...no you don't".

For some reason, the image of Lelouch in the ED pops into my head where he's wearing white and a red ribbon wrapped around his neck and hand.

I loved this series as a whole, really. I would give it a 9/10. But it's sad that in the end, not a lot of mysteries are resolved and even the ending about how the war stopped feels not so right. I mean, lelouch is dead, one man is dead and now everything is kinda ok. A bit hard to swallow.

I'm curious if anyone has been on the Japanese boards to see what Japan fan reaction is. I remember that people were saying their reaction was pretty mixed/shifting negative to Macross's ending like our's were. I wonder if that is the same for CG.
