    I just can't manage it with my clumsy fingers unfortunately. I can't even do it now until my crown molding finishes anyway. She was basically a cameo in the actual movies, again I think that's just to help setup things for C.C later on, not because Shirley herself will play an important role afterwards. Exactly, again you're either a fan or you're not if you're watching this movie by this point. Pfft, this is why I'm ignoring this whole 'difference' aka covering their ass they have between the two mediums, because it really doesn't make a difference. Well when I mean Code Geass I basically mean Lelouch cause again, he IS this franchise basically

    Cool Cool, though I expect Resurrection will be more like somwhere around May or June in the States probably.

    I Still, STILL have hope that with the recent moves by Sunrise they're willing to decanonize and rewrite certain things from the UC timeline (Looking at Origin as an example).... So PLEASE get rid of Victory and F91 Sunrise, I'm begging you

    Well that white blonde guy in the wheel chair HAS to have Geass related powers as well I feel, and this entire nation of Jirkustan seems very connected to Geass in general, given the words of their leaders. I have no confirmation of this but the subs have had some weird summaries where it seems like Jikustan also withstood previous Britannian invasions in their translations as well, if that ups their threat level for you. I very much doubt that's the case, it seems more like they're trying to track C.C down and find their way into the World of C which is why they captured Suzaku and Nunnally in the first place, C.C's not gonna be the one to break Lelouch's peace I feel. Again though, this movie just showcased the flaw with that finale I feel, that others could simply ignore or forget the lesson Lelouch died for and ruin his peace after he was gone and he has to know that, so he NEEDS a contingency I always felt. Well sounds good, let's see the reception for the movie and where they take it from there then.

    Hmm, seems like I misread the translation then, I thought he called to ask her a favor. Also rewatched the C.C scene, I think it was just to come clean about everything as you said but it was meant to soften the blow of his own death later on because it looked like she was leaving the country with her travel bag. I could also justify his phone call to just Shirley as Jeremiah telling him she was aware of everything unlike his other friends rather then any serious romantic attachment, and he needed that connection with his old life for a brief moment before saying goodbye to it by cutting it off and taking the plunge. Again, just something for Shirley to do I guess being that cheerleader as always. Pfft, If freaking Akito gets a happy ending with his romantic partner I feel good about that coming about here with at least C.C and Kallen getting featured, and a maybe on Shirley. Uh, I think you forget who Lelouch's father was Dann, and even these interview links you gave had Lelouch kind of flirting about outside of that whole siscon obsession of his (which I felt got canceled out once he put the Zero Requiem above even her). Not if C.C is still around to accompany him But it makes more sense in terms of Lelouch's need for atonement if that happens, making Suzaku do it all was always unfair of him too.

    And it may be, but he has had separate pilot outfits to his actual uniforms outside of piloting before Maybe some tweaks can be done but if you're gonna reach the point of fully animating those scenes then you're very reluctant to let them go after all that time and labor I feel. Didn't they try that with the Renya manga? Even the past gets kind of tainted given C.C's immortality, so yeah full AU probably the best if you branch out at all

    Basically covering their ass to justify keeping Shirley around at all I think, this isn't that different from their anime relationship status honestly. Gonna stick to my guns and say it's not gonna matter here anymore then it did then. Thanks for the links though.

    They usually do it seems so probably, maybe? We'll see I guess. Anything else you're following btw? RWBY's new volume is out and I've gotten really into Goblin Slayer recently. Plus any chance you checked out Altair, preferably the manga? I really do think you'll enjoy that politics and military aspects of that one plus the world building Dann. Kono Oto also has an anime coming out next year I'm looking forward to as well.

    I still floss, but never really done mouth wash myself. I actually have a dentist right down the street from my apartment, which is convenient. I'd honestly think she'd just get a cameo were it not for them having her somehow be involved in whatever C.C.'s up to. Except the anime series was done and finished and at the time there were no intentions for any sort of continuation. Well, that is who they're primarily thinking of here in terms of the audience, which will have people who will go and check these out. I do wish they'd had more new scenes or scenes that served to lead into the next film. Maybe? They did do the Akito OVAs a while after, but I don't know how much of a cash cow it really was or what the process was for how they decided to go about this.

    Yeah, it's a little under a month now and releases full in Japan either today or tomorrow I think. The release for Resurrection isn't too far either really as it's a bit under two months now.

    I'm pretty much out of the loop with Gundam right now, though I heard a little about NT. I mean, it won't amount to much in the end since it has to lead into F91 and then Victory, which is around 30 and 60 years after respectively. They're not much better honestly, though there are parties on both sides tired of all this.

    So many? We only have confirmation of the one guy and no one else, though it's not impossible they have more. Well, beating him does create some pretty high stakes for how tough these people are if they can manage that, though we don't know yet the full circumstances for his loss. C.C. may end up coming in as a third party to help provided she isn't working with the antagonists in some way towards her own ends. I suppose it depends on what the reason for all this is. If this country managing all this is due to C.C. assisting them in her effort to bring Lelouch back, then the reasoning still holds that she would be better off letting him go. It did have a proper finale in the tv series. Someone (creators, Sunrise, or both) probably just decided to make some money by announcing a new project with the prospect of bringing Lelouch back, which they probably know would get people excited. They've talked about doing more with in stuff like games and whatnot, which has come to pass with a bunch of different game crossovers in Japan and some new mobile game for the series. Beyond that, no idea.

    Hmm? Lelouch had his little phone call with Shirley to presumably say goodbye then hung up. Then C.C. appeared before Shirley while Lelouch was in Japan visiting Ashford for the UFN conference. We don't have any idea what was discussed (indications at least are that she explained everything to Shirley), but then in the ending C.C. is reading a letter signed by both Jeremiah and Shirley. Shirley is apparently still attending Ashford, but I guess helping out in the meantime with whatever? Speculation is that they have Lelouch's body, but there's no real evidence of that. I just can't envision the creators going for that full blown. If Lelouch does come back, I'll be astonished if C.C. doesn't die. Not onscreen apparently, but they have it established now and she doesn't really have any other role to play then love interest. I don't think romance is especially important to them anyway so it being regulated to a side thing we only get at the end wouldn't be surprising. They'd never go for a harem ending and it wouldn't be in character for Lelouch to go that way either. I could see that being what happens, but I expect the bittersweetness to come in with the fact he'll have to watch everyone die and in a sense be alone for eternity.

    The second poster for the film has him in a new outfit which is presumably what he wears for when he pilots the Lancelot. I could see things like that coming up but perhaps not in the same way they're shown in the trailer. Unless you go way into the past or way into the future, you'd probably still run into the same problems, which is why a complete AU with no returning characters would be the best bet.

    They actually specifically say that their level of dating is like elementary or middle-school level due to Lelouch being so focused on Nunnally, but that it's apparently a good relationship nonetheless. I linked an article on this as well as Taniguchi discussing the changes for the movies. I mean there are scenes and lines of dialogue to indicate it, though I agree that it's weird they insert this but don't have any actual scenes demonstrating it.

    Aka covering their asses like I said, they wanted to appear to remain with their 'integrety' previously but the allure and demand from the fanbase for this franchise was just too great so they covered their ass to rewrite the story. I can clearly see that and since again things are so damn negligible I'm gonna freaking ignore their BS excuses and just treat it as the true sequel it really is but they just won't admit. Same with these previous interviews where they kept asserting Lelouch is a true virgin, but now he's dating Shirley here? Who gives a crap about what they've said or done before honestly given how they always have to walk it back now? I'll only believe what I see they actually commit to animation at this point. And like I've said before I don't see any reason to distinguish the two stories since they essentially tell the same story, it feels pointless and again like they're covering their asses because they're walking back on what they've said before. Meh to it in that case, especially so close to the release in theaters in NA, I don't see any advantage and if Funimation doesn't I think it just indicates a lot of the changes really are negligible and won't be a factor in Re;surrection, including Shirley. We'll see soon enough though

    That's pretty far in still regardless. I tracked that down actually since I didn't know about it before, their date was in a drama CD in fact and I'm glad I saw it. Hopefully there's more to come as the main story progresses, thanks for letting me know!

    No worries man, I almost did the same thing with your initial post before that one and had to cut a few characters just to make that portion fit. I think we've gone over enough of the same talking points that we can condense them back down in the next round though

    Well I do too, though I skip on flossing and only did mouth wash erratically, but take a day to schedule one with a good steady dentist to go to in case of an emergency, I had to scramble finding one myself. I did say minus Shirley who we don't even know if she'll play a major role in the next movie anyway and could be easily skipped, and yes there were a few lead ins but nothing that couldn't be fit within the anime series itself. That works for the Japanese but I think it's a waste of time for the american audience who either have or are watching the anime or not, nobody from the states would waste money and time just to watch recap movies by this point I feel. And again the changes are so negligible between the two I really doubt they'll make a difference for the English audience. Aka what I call covering their ass because Sunrise always knew how much of a cash cow Code Geass is and wanted to bring Lelouch back no matter what kind of BS they had to come up with I doubt it, maybe like a brief C.C intro as they did in the other seasons but that'd be about it, again you're likely either in the series or not by this point, and on Japan's side they already did that with the recap films as is.

    Sweet, much appreciated. I keep forgetting that Broly is so close to release here in the states

    Speaking of filmish series you managed to catch anything from that Gundam NT release? It's supposed to feature a lot of cameo's from the Unicorn cast as well so I'm more interested in seeing it and the fallout from the Unicorn series in general now and hoping/PRAYING a change happens in the UC status quo after all. The fact that we keep coming to the same problems with the Federation time and again is what started pushing me to support Zeon after all... <_<

    The fact that there are so many Geass users on the other side kind of makes me think the opposite, that we need Lelouch to balance this particular scale. Otherwise I don't see how Suzaku would have been beaten in the first place if it wasn't necessary and based on the trailer his backup in Kallen, Sayako, and Lloyd aren't helping much. We wouldn't need a sequel if that was the real answer I feel where after leaving them with everything they couldn't maintain Lelouch's peace after only two years I feel, but we'll see. Pffftt, ten years later and they still haven't given the farnchise a proper finale? I'll only trust what I see from now on thanks, otherwise I'm not betting on Sunrise letting this property go anymore then they would Gundam at this point

    I'd agree if it was a true AU with a wildly divergent timeline, but again the changes are so negligible and the main story essentially the same I don't personally see the point in treating them differently now. I mean I don't disagree with that assessment either if you are going to cut that content since Shirley dying would be confusing without it, but I'm just saying I don't also think my headcanon of it happening offscreen would be necessarily conflicting either and that Jeremiah telling her to back off would still work in terms of a change Also what about C.C bringing Shirley into this? Lelouch was the one who had her and Jeremiah get in contact and deliver his message to C.C. after his death from what I recall of the movie's last ending. It feels like it being the only one I can recall between those two, and c'mon if there is a time to shoot for a happy ending it's now after ten years of waiting Dann He and Shirley didn't even really meet or interact directly in the movies, it's too weird I think if he did now for anyone, anime or movie fan at this point so again if she does get there it's gonna be full blown harem given how Kallen and C.C. got far more involved in the mix that is Lelouch's life. Blah to that, given the flaw of the Zero Requiem plan where the his peace doesn't last without someone capable to policing it I'm still hoping/banking on Lelouch getting immortality to watch over his peace provided he does come back for good.

    Well the desert stuff is clearly at the beginning portion of the series and Suzaku clearly gets captured at the start, if he successfully breaks out I can see him re-donning his Rounds outfit alongside his obvious re-piloting of the Lancelot again. And things like the purple Shinkiro and the Black Knights reunion barbacue, and the explosion in the busy streets still show up is what I'm saying, so again I'm not going to count anything out until the movie comes out and I see it for myself. We've seen them trying to branch out the franchise without Lelouch at the center Dann, like Akito, while nice they really, really don't attract the same kind of attention and I think it's time we just concede that instead of trying to force it otherwise. Eh I wouldn't mind that, if it was a true AU starting completely from scratch but if it's still based on this same setting/world then you can't escape Lelouch's shadow in the end, anymore then say you could escape Char for example

    I have nothing to back this up really, but I think maybe Taniguchi likes her character and her relationship with Lelouch. It pretty much all is and even going by what they described of her role in the films I don't really get the point myself really. There was some explanation for why they were dating, but my reaction to it all was why anyone would care. And one of the stated reasons for the films was that they could serve as a way to bring newcomers to the series quicker. With that in mind though, why is a new viewer supposed to care about Shirley at all or her relationship with Lelouch? It's partly why I'm convinced that if they do any romance in this, it'll be in some minor way with Shirley. She's there be the girl waiting for him or something and that's why C.C. brought her in at all. The kiss with Kallen was baffling since they cut out pretty much all the romance with her developing feelings for Lelouch and they have a scene explaining away the kiss as entirely unromantic as they did in the original series. They've always made it clear in interviews and such that Lelouch and C.C.'s relationship was in no way romantic, just extremely close. I don't ever expect them to ever fully go that direction with the two of them. Potentially, except it was outright stated that Mao did not show up in this version of events so it doesn't really matter. Well the point was to introduce it to new fans and I think because the creators think the series is best left alone as it is, so they don't want to do any continuations to it at all. So it's a means to keep up with the franchise while leaving the original series they ended to exist as they wanted it to. We don't know who approached who about this project after all and the creators may have wanted the original work left alone so this was them meeting halfway. Well, they do have the licenses for the films so they may still do a release of some kind in advance of the movie.

    I only saw anime through the AFO fight so I haven't watched how they did the exams there. I think that's deliberate since I seem to recall some sort of extra story by the author that had them essentially go on a date.

    Oh no, I started doing this again! Sorry

    Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if something is wrong with me though I try to brush regularly. Eh, they do feature some instances like Shirley and the bits of the ending that serve as a lead-in. Plus for newer people to the series you can get a relatively quick recap of things. If you just watch the series and then the movies, you may end up confused as the two aren't supposed to connect. I think the creators wanted to leave the series on its own as they were fine with the way it ended. The films allow them to explore the whole idea of Lelouch coming back without potentially tainting the original series. I wonder, if they have a new anime start, if they'll recap it in episodic form like they did the other two films, though I always heard those were rather weak.

    For Broly? Yeah, I just got some the other day. I just searched Dragon Ball Super Broly tickets and got results in my area. I did a search for NYC Dragon Ball Super Broly tickets and got some results for theaters around there, though no idea which ones you'd be hoping for. I could I guess or maybe a half day to make sure I can make it.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=new+...hrome&ie=UTF-8

    Unless he's up to speed somehow from being a spirit or something. I don't really expect him to need to do much for some reason. I just don't see this leading to some scenario where the world absolutely needs Lelouch back to solve anything. I'm more expecting the point to be that C.C. needs to move on like everyone else has been trying to do and learn to live in a world with him gone. You'd could even make it some kind of meta-commentary on their part about people needing to let the character go. They've said this is supposed to be a sort of finale too. C.C. does have the advantage of immortality in that she can keep watch forever. Unless they have him take the Code, her be rendered mortal or dead, and then have him do it, to go against everything I just said.

    I prefer to think I'm being realistic here I mean it's not a redefinition of canon. It's an AU. The tv series just exists as it's own separate thing. So if you don't like the movie, you can just ignore and stick to the series I guess? And Shirley is apparently more a consequence of there not being a way to keep the Mao arc and Taniguchi not thinking her dying makes sense then. I actually agree with that since cutting that and everything that came from it takes away any impact her death might have had. I mean, Lelouch has to die at the end. Shirley's a supporting character and thus her death isn't as vital as his or Euphemia's as another example. I've gotten confused on what promise she's talking about honestly. Is it just the smile one then? I'd like them to stay by the other's side, but that almost feels too happy an ending for this show which is why I think one of them isn't sticking around. Unless one of them is mortal and the other immortal so there is some bittersweetness there. I've kind of been thinking he ends up with Shirley in the end (that perhaps being the entire reason C.C. brought her into this) and maybe we have a flash forward where they have a daughter named after C.C. (thus finally resolving that mystery). If C.C. dies it's a nice tribute and if not they can have it be that she watches over his descendants.

    Except there are bits that don't seem to fit anymore with what little has been shown especially the environments since we seem to mostly be in the desert along with him being in his Rounds outfit (we already see in the poster he seems to get something completely different). I think it's more of a proof of concept trailer so they had something to show off or things changed as they went along. I kind of think that's a bit of a problem as it prevents them from branching out with the franchise at all. Really I think they'd be best served getting as far away from the original cast as possible if they want to do more with it. Go full AU with no returning characters like how Gundam eventually started doing beginning with G Gundam.

    Yeah, well let my experience be a lesson to you about that, find time to at least do your yearly and you hopefully won't have the surprise I did. Oh, well I'm not, releasing the rehash films is just a waste of money considering how little they actually change, but a sequel/new content WILL make money and generate interest so if I was Funimation I'd have just treated this as a direct sequel to the series as well itself minus Shirley. It looks like a rather crazy one from what the recent Broly teaser releases have shown, so I'm alright with that especially in a movie where plot gets condensed anyway.

    Wait what, tickets are already on sale? When and where did you get them to see cause I'd like a link if possible Can't take the day off on the showing I take it? If he was a DBZ character yeah I'd be worried but again, Lelouch's greatest tool is his mind and that requires at least SOME set up especially if he just comes back from the grave and needs to get up to speed This is not a dig at C.C, she's my favorite female character of the series and one of my favorites in general, but just me stating a fact that she like so many others can't measure up to Lelouch. She kept the BK going yeah alongside Kallen and Urabe I remind you, but even then just barely surviving and knowing they needed Lelouch back to ever turn things around. And yes Lelouch took her council seriously, but it was usually about moral psychological things related to their endgames and about the nature of Geass, she doesn't have the mind to create the strategies needed to execute getting to those goals/objectives she helps Lelouch to define for himself in the first place, nor does she have the physical ability of Suzaku and Kallen to make up for it. I see you're still a bit too pessimistic there Dann Again I just don't think we go so far as to redefine the canon so Shirley lives but Lelouch doesn't and C.C still talked about the promise she and Lelouch made and that she would keep pursuing/waiting for him to finally fulfill it at the end of the last movie. If he goes then I think she will too, but otherwise if he stays I feel strongly then that C.C will as well, that it's either both or none by this point. If it was just some still image then I'd agree but that promotion had full animations with some still appearing in the more recent trailers too, seems too wasteful to put it aside after already animating it so I think it's too early to discount anything. I don't personally see that, coming back to life like Jesus in general is what I would consider the birth of a new legend even after all his previous miracles, and let's face it Lelouch IS the Code Geass franchise

    Makes it even more pointless then now that you bring that up. And a lot of the stuff with Shirley in general has generally seemed a waste of time so again I would not be surprised if she gets cut, at most she gets some weird tie-in with Jeremiah I'm betting. And with him still smooching both C.C and Kallen? Don't think so at all personally, so if Shirley gets involved at all on that end then it's going full blown harem with Lelouch is what I'm betting on by that point. From a movie perspective sure, cause of the condensed plot but a lot of stuff in general in the movies had to get cut yet still happened offscreen regardless and I don't see the harm in keeping Mao in that offscreen with the only real substantive change being Jeremiah telling Shirley to keep out of it. I mean there's REALLY no point in a continuation to essentially the same storyline in my book if it doesn't count so we might as well say they are the same, especially as likely all future spinoff media for Code Geass will be from this iteration from now on. Lelouch will always live for me regardless, but now the rest of the whole world will know it as well, given how Funimation is treating the releases with only the Re;surrection movie being officially imported which shows I think, that they agree with me

    Hopefully it kicks more butt, but we'll have to see. The main differences will be if we see any substantive new abilities for either knightmare as I said.

    Yeah, and it doesn't rub me the wrong way like Naruto and and lot of the older shounen's have by comparison by making consistent progress both abilities wise and narratively speaking I feel. My favorite character is probably Todoroki who I'm shipping pretty hard with Momo btw

    I'm a fair bit behind to be honest. Just need to find the time, but I don't have a lot of it right now. I was surprised to see they were bothering to have it in theaters at all, though the fact they haven't gotten around to releasing the films despite having the license makes me wonder how long after the Japan release it will be. A good portion past a certain point is apparently just a big fight, but a extremely well animated one. Not sure how I feel about that since DB Minus always felt a bit weird.

    Actually looks like tickets opened up around me so I managed to get in a ticket. I just hope I can get there in time as it's an hour after work ends, but traffic can get pretty bad going home at times. Possibly, though I've just been having a harder and harder time imagining him being around all that much or contributing much if he does beyond a last minute save. I think that is selling C.C. incredibly short in terms of her abilities. She helped keep the BK together after Lelouch was captured and Lelouch always took her council seriously. Her major issue I think was apathy, but given a reason to care and her taking it seriously I think she could do just fine. Hell, the point of this might be that she (and everyone else) just need to move on past Lelouch and take care of things themselves. I feel like if he goes again he'd probably still want her to live and encourage her not to give up. Though that's partially that I don't see an ending with both of them alive. If one of them is alive it feels the other must be dead. Honestly, he tends to be about his plans mostly being successful just to fail at some crucial point down the line. I don't put any stock in that promotional video anymore. I think it was a proof of concept teaser they put together to show off the project to fans and the thing evolved into something a bit different with aspects getting set aside. But yeah, I'd be surprised to see him take the mantle back. It says the birth of a new legend so I don't think it's going to be either Lelouch or Suzaku officially taking the mantle, but someone new taking it full time.

    You can infer it from a few conversations and comments had, but it's pretty weird and doesn't seem to matter at all that I still don't get the point either. The two never have a direct conversation onscreen from what I can tell with the closest being phone calls we only hear one side of. Well, they had her get involved on this plan in some way so I'd imagine she's going to show up in some regard or else it's a waste of time. The fact they had a pre-established relationship makes me wonder if, in the event he comes back and sticks around, we're just going to see that they ended up together. Eh, it makes sense why they cut Mao from the movies. Anime is the anime and the movies are the movies. Same general story with some cuts and slight differences. And the anime has its ending while the movies get a continuation.

    I like the deeper red for the Guren though it looks way bulkier which I think is due to the arm.

    It's definitely quite solid and the anime has been quite good as well.

    Be sure to get your regular checkups at the dentist then, I let it languish a few years and this was the result I still think among its english fans those that like it will still like it, I mean I run across enough new reaction series on youtube to note some popularity still here in the states at least. Anyway, looking forward to said new Broly film regardless, looks much more interesting and built up/written out then the previous ones plus Goku's getting a bit of a rewrite on his backstory as well to include that one manga short about Bardok and Goku's mom.

    Hmmm, not the worst road trip if you're really desperate between the two cities if it comes to that I mean, but yeah hoping things work out for you. Again, though, Lelouch's greatest weapon is his mind and if he has to come back to save the day he's gonna need at least some time to think up and set up a plan I feel. Again, I just don't think C.C has the mind or ability to be Zero, especially if Suzaku of all people can't keep it up either, the whole point of Suzaku's fall in the movies to me is just to showcase that no one else can truly be Zero except Lelouch, but we'll see I suppose. If Lelouch dies again I can see C.C. dying to join him, but if he lives I see her heeding his advice about living rather then just accumulating experiences etc and them keeping their promise to each other regarding happiness and smiles etc. I feel I'd be more surprised if there weren't since this is Lelouch we're talking about and he's all about the contingencies Well I don't see how since I recall seeing him in his Knight of Round outfit during the first promo video from a year ago, plus he's going back to Lancelot Albion again so... I'm thinking the jig will be up regarding that anyway.

    That bit about them dating is just dumb/inconsequential (and even dumber and more inconsequential then her death was in R2 which I thought was a waste to begin with btw) and I didn't notice that at all in any of the new scenes in the movies, I'm hoping they just forgot and cut it in this Resurrection (hell Shirley can just not appear for all I care to reconcile both movie and anime series followers so we don't have to deal with it), especially since both C.C and Kallen's romantic feelings are still so blatantly obvious for Lelouch and his own receptiveness towards them as well. Personally Imma stick to my headcannon, Mao still happens but the only thing that changes is that Shirley heeds Jeremiah's advice in the movies and stays out of it, thus avoiding Rolo. And my headcannon has been paying off after all given Lelouch seems to finally, hopefully, be making his return

    They seem fine and very similar to their last iterations, some minor changes like the blue breast plate for Lancelot but otherwise we'll have to see if there are any substantial changes when they go into actual action.

    In the meantime to brighten up the mood I've recently gotten into My Hero Academia at last over the past few months. It really is topping all the previous shounen action animes for me right now, how about you?

    Same here! Yeah, I've has some family members who needed it done and they didn't have a fun time. Hopefully I don't need to have that done at some point. I've always wondered how much the show has retained it's popularity over the years. It seems to have done so somewhat in Japan, but I doubt it has done so much anywhere else. I think the recent films and Super existing at all means GT is no longer a factor. I wouldn't be opposed to them utilizing some of the concepts from it and reworking them to not be dumb.

    I'm near Austin, but I'd only seen screenings mentioned for San Antonio so far. Hopefully they do some near here. I feel like NYC would definitely have some though as you say having it be near the area you're in could be the catch. I wonder about that really. I could see it being for the finale and perhaps even being just a few minutes at most. Given the whole birth of a new legend line and such, I'd lean towards someone new taking on the role. C.C. doing so to honor Lelouch's memory and exist as an Eternal Zero could line up with that. Not like she doesn't have some experience with it either. I just have extreme doubts of him coming back and actually sticking around at all I suppose. Though I've also been thinking C.C. will probably end up dead or they stick to the status quo with her living on eternally. It'd be nice if there were contingencies, but it wouldn't surprise me if there weren't any either. If Suzaku gets revealed, there's a few easy ways that can be explained away of course.

    Actually, at a recent fan event, there were some reports that he indicated not having recorded any lines for the movie. It may also have been a joke of course about how he's not listed anywhere in the starring credits so far, but hard to say. Shirley coming back was apparently in large part due to Mao's arc getting cut, though other members of the staff wanted to stick with her dying. Director Taniguchi couldn't see it though and so they had her live. They seem to be setting her up for something with her getting involved with C.C. and Jeremiah, but I have no idea what. Taniguchi also had it so that in the movie universe, she and Lelouch were casually dating since freshmen year though none of this is super obvious or important. A few lines here and there that give some indications but that's it. So is she supposed to be a love interest then waiting for him to return? Why would anyone care or expect anything out of her given how unimportant she is in the films?

    I don't know about cut. It takes place between the end of the ZR and start of the film and nothing about it all contradicts what info we have. Though the Black Albion seems to be a remnant from the original test footage that they inserted into canon, but appears to have been dropped or not used in between. What do you think of the new Lancelot and Guren anyway?
