To me the ending was flawless whether Lelouch is really dead or not. This ending was my guess that was sitting off to the side. Like it COULD happen...but it won't. I don't think I will find a better anime ever. Great story, great characters, great fights, great chicks, perfect ending.

If only they could have just ended it with Season 1 somehow. Now I know that this series has no replay value for me. Watching any of it again would just be depressing. Code Geass this season for me went from being a spectacular Anime; one of the best I've ever experienced to a whatever Anime in just a few short months. It's sad. But oh well. In any case, I'm glad it existed.
All that needs to be said is that after Rolo died, the entire staff lost their guts. They stopped trying to make art, and kept trying to please everyone. The ending point blankly sucked, if I wanted to watch something childish, I would watch Children's television.

It went from being in my top ten favorite mecha series to not even being in my top 20. The only other comparable series is Big O, which went from an excellent noir with Mecha to an incomprehensible mecha series with tomatoes.

How the hell is he a Mary sue? He didn't do anything, Tamaki has more plot relevance than Xingke.

A Escaflowne type of movie would be awesome, but it might be too much content for a 2 hour movie.

Somehow a conclusory movie among the lines of The End of Evangelion would make more sense, but this is Sunrise and Code Geass we are talking about, so you never know what 2009 will bring for Geass.

And as a Geass fun, I'm all up for it.

I dunno. The Bebop movie transcended the mediocrity of the TV series, and Gurren-Lagann's movie is said to be just as good if not better than the show as well, sans Kamina's involvement.

I wouldn't care for a Geass movie, though...just a tad bit of closure to the TV series.

Alright Mary Sue is harsh and not correctly used here. I just am annoyed a character with a fatal flaw wasn't made use of. I mean what the hell was the point of saying "he didn't have much time" when they don't expand on it. Sure he didn't have plot relevance for a while but he poped back into the screen long enough for him to get offed and he didn't.

The thing is how can they even make a movie for something like Code Geass.

I can understand pulling a Gundam Seed movie out of their ass (with its development now cursed with an indefinite hiatus for the failure it may produce) but Code Geass? its done. Finished.

A few OVAs or something can tie the remaining loose ends but a movie is too much. I don't want to see a Gundam Seed plot pulled out of their ass where somehow Schneizel breaks the geass, goes into Char mode, reveals Zero is really Suzaku and the world goes into war again and Lelouch comes back with imortality and is forced to give a poor sap a geass to become a Jesus Yamato 2.0

My blood pressure is fine, watching Taniguchi chicken out just pisses me off. I can't tell what was more childish Avatar the Last Airbender or Code Geass, thinking about its definatly Code Geass, while Avatar also had no one die, they at least managed to tackle its theme with some maturity.

Its made clear that theirs no magical answer, only by working together can Zuko, Aang, and everyone else make peace. Code Geass on the other hand cares more about giving everyone a happy ending so they place Ohgi, as Prime minister. You might as well have Tamaki as the Prime Minister.

Charred, your hyperventilating now, calm down. Take a few days off now that the series is over or something, this really isn't called for I feel, just plain insults amounts to ranting now

Tell you what,

C.C. = Christina Cole.

See how insignificant that was? Would you have felt that much better if you heard Lelouch say to C.C. : Sayonara Christina Cole.
actually since code geass has been getting stuff from history and greek myths and irish lore where geass partly comes from.

C.C would more likey stand for Cú Chulainn. as she is allusion of Cú Chulainn. but since in the lore Cú Chulainn was a guy and he died, not the case here since C.C. is immortal. but christina cole is a good name.

Coughing blood is a symptom for Tuberculosis, he could very well of found out that they have medication for that.
