Summary:

With Euphemia calling for the deaths of all Japanese, Zero mobilizes the Black Knights. Led by the Crimson Lotus and Toudou’s Gekka, the Black Knight forces have no problem taking out the Britannian Knightmares and are even cheered on by the Japanese population. Kallen stops a particular Gloucester that is shooting at people and is surprised to find out that Euphemia is its pilot. Euphemia recognizes Kallen’s voice as the person from the island, but before Kallen can do anything, Zero arrives on the Gawain to stop her. After Gawain’s finger weapons shred the Gloucester so that only the cockpit remains, Euphemia emerges from the wreck with killing still on her mind. She grabs a gun and starts shooting at the Gawain, but soon runs out of ammunition. While she’s looking for more and reloading, Lelouch puts on his helmet and goes out to face her. At that moment, Suzaku is searching for Euphemia in the chaos and finally catches sight of her, but he then sees Zero pull the trigger and shoots her. As she falls to the ground, Euphemia questions in her mind why Lelouch did that. Lelouch, on the other hand, says goodbye to her and also admits that she was probably his first love. The sight of this enrages Suzaku so much that he charges the Lancelot towards them, is able to avoid all of C.C.’s Gawain cannon fire, and kicks the Gawain onto the ground. Then, in one swoop, the Lancelot grabs Euphemia’s body, knocks the Crimson Lotus down, and flies up towards the just-arrived Avalon. With blood all over him, Suzaku takes Euphemia onboard the ship and asks Cecile and Lloyd to please save her.

Lounging in Diethard’s control room, Laksharta listens to the man talking about how he’ll show this footage after some editing to the whole world through the Internet. Diethard feels that it’ll be easy for people to understand which is justice. This causes Laksharta to comment on how he really doesn’t have any feelings of loyalty towards Britannia. Diethard doesn’t want to serve a Britannia that he considers a finished subject matter, and he then questions why Laksharta is helping the Black Knights. She explains that she only wanted data, but she would feel bad abandoning them and finds Zero an interesting man. Back onboard the Avalon, the outlook doesn’t look great for Euphemia. When she wakes up, Cecile and Lloyd give Suzaku some time to talk with her alone, and the first thing he asks is why she gave those orders. Euphemia doesn’t seem to know what he’s talking about and her eyes instead light up red again as she identifies him as Japanese. She struggles with the control GEASS has over her and eventually opens her eyes again to ask what happened with the ceremony and Japan. It is at this point that Suzaku realizes that she doesn’t remember anything. Euphemia asks if the Japanese people are happy, not knowing that at that very moment, they are cursing her name as Zero gives a speech about how Euphemia is a symbol of Britannian hypocrisy. Zero continues on to declare independence from Britannia, but he’s not going to be reviving the old Japan. Instead, he’s creating a new Japan where all races, histories, and principles are accepted and where the strong won’t oppress the weak. The name of this country is the United States of Japan.

Euphemia then asks Suzaku if she did well, and, unable to tell her the truth, he instead says that it was a huge success and that everyone was very pleased. She is glad to hear this, but then she comments on how it’s strange that she can’t see Suzaku’s face. Realizing what’s happening, Suzaku grasps her hand tightly, and when she talks about going to school, he tearfully says that they can still go to Ashford together where there is happy student council. With tears in her eyes too, Euphemia starts to say that she was happy to have met him, but she stops short of finishing, and the nearby heart monitor flatlines. Meanwhile, in the aftermath of his speech, Zero returns to a room where C.C. is waiting. She asks him if he intends to attack the Tokyo Settlement and he confirms that he does because this is their best chance. Taking off his helmet, he looks away so that his perma-GEASS left eye isn’t facing her, but she informs him that it has no effect on her. Lelouch then gets a phone call from Nunnally wanting to see Euphemia again because Milly had said that they could redo the school festival that got interrupted. Nunnally doesn’t know what happened with Euphemia because the radio broadcast had ended, and Lelouch doesn’t tell her. He instead says that he’ll return tomorrow, and they can discuss it then. After he hangs up, C.C. asks Lelouch if anything else changed aside from him not being able to switch on and off his GEASS. Lelouch reveals that Euphemia tried to resist the GEASS order, so he thought that its power might have diminished. However, he reasons that it was probably to be expected since it was not an allowable thing for her. Hearing this, C.C.walks over and holds him in her arms, saying that they contracted, so only she will stand by him.

With the Zero’s forces growing to over tens of thousands strong as they approach Tokyo, the Britannian military officers are worried, but Guilford refuses to move without Cornelia’s orders. It seems that she has shut herself in Euphemia’s room, shocked at what happened, though it’s a quiet kind of shocked unlike Nina over at Ashford Academy. Onboard the Black Knights’ commandeered command vessel, C.C. is talking to someone again even though she’s alone in the hallway. This time, she talks about how happy she is and how she had forgotten how to be kind. She then identifies the person she’s talking to: Marianne. Ougi is meanwhile on the phone with Villetta, but since he doesn’t know her real identity, he calls her Chigusa and tells her that he has something important to tell her when he gets home. She’s really happy because this is the first time he’s called her by that name, and she says that she’ll be waiting for him. However, a group of men then break down the door and accuse her of being a spy. At Ashford, Rivalz, Nunnally, and Shirley are listening to the news broadcast, and it causes Nunnally to wonder if this place will become a battlefield too. Rivalz tries to reassure her by saying that Cornelia’s forces are here and then changes the subject to how Lelouch hasn’t come back yet. Shirley is surprised to hear that name, and Rivalz uses the chance to tell her to call him Lelou and to reconcile with him. Shirley, however, didn’t realize that she called Lelouch by that name. Milly has actually gone to tell Nina to come back to the school because the rebels are approaching Tokyo. Saying that she knows Zero is coming, Nina continues working on the Ganymede from the festival and vows to avenge Euphemia.

As he keeps vigil over Euphemia’s body onboard the Avalon, Suzaku questions why she did those things. Suddenly, a voice volunteers to tell him why, and Suzaku turns around to find a young, long-haired boy standing behind him. This boy knows who Suzaku is and identifies himself as V.V. Down in the city below, Cornelia has finally got herself back together and is giving out orders again. Zero is at that moment telling his men that defeating Cornelia will win this for them. After ordering the army to stand by in accordance to the strategic plan, he leaves command of this vessel to Diethard. As he heads to exit the bridge, Zero runs into Kaguya, and she immediately starts talking about how glad she is to have made it in time. Kaguya explains that she’s been his fan ever since his debut, and she came so that she could see her husband fight. She feels that Zero will need a wife sooner or later if he wins this battle because he’ll need someone to compensate in the circumstance that he can’t show his face. Kaguya also thinks that he’ll win because she’s the goddess of victory. Zero, however, tells her that he’s already contracted to the devil – it’s already too late for him to get along with a god. Around this time, in General Bartley’s laboratory, Jeremiah’s capsule suddenly bursts from a rise in internal pressure. With his body half covered in metal, Jeremiah gets on his feet and greets everyone good morning.

Flying out in the Gawain, Zero introduces himself to the Britannia side and intends to start at midnight (which is less than 3 minutes away). C.C. tells him that they can still go back because as things stand, it won’t just be Area 11 – the entire world will get stained with Lelouch’s battle. Lelouch says that he understands and starts to explain, but he gets interrupted by his cell phone ringing. He is shocked to see that Euphemia is calling, but it turns out just to be Suzaku using her phone. Suzaku starts by asking if Lelouch is at school, and Lelouch truthfully replies that he’s not, though he says that he’ll be going back soon. The reason Suzaku is calling is because he doesn’t want Lelouch and the others to look up into the sky. He then asks if Lelouch has someone he hates so much that he wants to kill, and Lelouch admits that he does. Suzaku explains his feelings about how not fighting according to the rules amounts to just murder, but he admits to being controlled by hatred now. He is going to fight to try to kill someone, so he’s going to murder in the skies above Tokyo where everyone is. Knowing that Suzaku is filled with hatred because of Euphemia’s death, Lelouch tells him that it’s okay. Lelouch also admits that he’s already personally decided not to turn around, and Suzaku figures out that it’s for Nunnally’s sake. With midnight rapidly approaching, Lelouch tells Suzaku that they’re friends, and Suzaku confirms that they’ve always been friends since seven years ago. The two hang up the phone at almost exactly midnight, and at that very moment, the ground under the Tokyo settlement collapses.

Starting to laugh, Lelouch says that his hands are already dirty, so he doesn’t care if he has to face Suzaku. In fact, he welcomes it because they are friends. As the buildings of Tokyo are falling in front of him, Lelouch says that destruction is necessary before creation. He thinks that it’s okay to get rid of your heart if it gets in the way and feels that he can’t do anything but move forward now.

ED:

CODE GEASS   ED23   01 CODE GEASS   ED23   02 CODE GEASS   ED23   03

Well, I thought that this was probably one of, if not THE, best episode so far (I’ve probably said that before, but that’s how good this show keeps being). It’s that mix of action and near-constant twists and turns that kept me excited through the entire episode.

As expected, Euphemia died, and she was indeed killed by Lelouch as some of the spoilers had previously said. I actually half thought that she would suddenly try to choke Suzaku or something when he was at her bedside because he was Japanese, but it was instead a very touching scene since Suzaku let her die thinking that the Japanese were happy. I liked the song they played there, and I felt really sad when she died. They did a great job contrasting that scene with Zero’s speech and the crowd chanting.

Suzaku of course took her death rather hard, and V.V. (who is male if there were any doubts) appeared in the perfect moment to take advantage of him. It’s not clear what V.V. revealed to Suzaku, but I got the distinct feeling that Suzaku knew who Lelouch really was by the time he called Lelouch before the destruction in Tokyo began. There was something very creepy and cold about the way Suzaku asked if Lelouch was at school, and there’s also the fact that Suzaku chose to use Euphemia’s phone. The rest of the conversation didn’t quite seem to reflect Suzaku knowing, but maybe Suzaku just wasn’t letting on.

And then there’s the subject of C.C. communicating with Marianne. Theoretically, either Marianne is alive or C.C. and people like her can talk with the dead. The latter seems more plausible because, as many people have pointed out, the Emperor back in the very beginning of episode six mentioned that he had talked to Clovis even though Clovis was already dead by that point. That being said, I can only imagine how Lelouch would react if Marianne were indeed alive (or if he could just see her again in some way).

There’s a lot of miscellaneous character highlights this episode too, all of which will carry over to the next episodes. First, it seems pretty evident that Nina is going to try to join the battle in some way using a modified Ganymede to avenge Euphemia. The question is if she’s going to use her nuclear/Uranium-235 knowledge. She’s not very emotionally stable, so anything could happen. Then there’s Villetta, who it looks like is going to be the victim of an angry mob. I doubt she’s going to die, but this may lead to her getting her memory back in some way.

Kaguya meanwhile was almost sickingly cute. I say almost because I do like her character. I hadn’t realized how small she was until she was standing right next to Zero. She’s got to play a bigger role than just being the girl who wants to be Zero’s wife, but it’s unclear to me what that will be. And finally, there’s Jeremiah. He has now more or less been activated, so I expect to see him fairly soon. I assume he’ll return to the battlefield in some more-powerful-than-before form, but I also think that he’ll have to be involved with Villetta again somehow.

Now that episode 23 is over, the wait begins. The preview at the end of this episode wasn’t really a preview, but rather a notice that confirmed that episodes 24 and 25 won’t be airing until sometime during the summer. It was basically what had been revealed earlier on the MBS GEASS site. I’m looking forward to an epic conclusion and am hoping that episodes 24 and 25 don’t end in a huge cliffhanger for the second series. We’ll have to wait and find out…

    One thing really didn’t make sense. Mao who was practically turned into swiss cheese was repaired for the most part. The avalon i’d expect would have medical facilities just as advanced as a Brittanian hostpital. Yet they can’t heal a simple gun wound.

  • March 31, 2007 at 7:20 pmSanglant

    the scene of lelouch gunning down euphemia while suzaku watch reminds me of the scene in X/1999, where Kamui had to watch the one he love the most kill by the one he trust the most; the association is more profound giving the fact that both X/1999 (story & char) & CG’s characters are created by Clamp.

    i doubt lelouch will die anytime soon; the creator of the show have not make him suffer enough yet. don’t be surprise if suzaku makes a brief stop to ashford and kills nunnally, with either lelouch watching or tells him when they meet in battle. afterall, dead man feels no pain; but a live one will have his heart shred to pieces & lose all humanity once his reason for living is destroied. in fact, i hope this will happen; lelouch with humanity is not nearly as enjoyable as lelouch without

    @Keith

    If it hasnt already, i find that episodes just keep getting better. Episode 23 was definately the best for me.
    Lol and i thought i was the only one that wanted a Suzaku/Karin… although it seems pretty unlikely. I don’t know, I really liked Lelouch in the beggining but for me hes turning into a Shinn Asuka or Light Yagami, both characters which my respects plummetted as the series went on. I still like Lelouch but i want Suzaku to get his revenge for Euphie. Euphie T_T

  • March 31, 2007 at 11:29 pmFlareKnight

    Who knew there were people out there that liked the SuzakuxKallen pairing. After everything that’s gone on I can’t see them having any time to work that out. Though Kallen doesn’t seem to have a chance with Zero with C.C. getting closer all the time, and now Suzaku has lost his leading love interest. But really back to the episode at hand.

    Personally I couldn’t follow the path Lelouch has gone with since I don’t have the ability to handle causing that much death. Plus I’m just not that manipulative :). It’s a horrible situation for Suzaku. Everything he’s done for these last few years has all been for nothing. There is no way he can get involved politically after being alligned with Euphie. He won’t be welcome in his homeland any longer. Since his best friend has killed the person he cared about all he has no is Cecile and Lloyd. There is no path left for him but revenge.

    That phone conversation was really chilling. Both sides said what they needed to, affirming their friendship before they entered the fray. I think Lelouch could do nothing but tell Suzaku to follow his revenge. He knows that Suzaku’s paths are gone now and joining up now will never happen. I wonder how C.C. puts up with the maniacle laughter behind her. How is Suzaku though going to fight for 2 episodes with that float system on? Unless they re-worked the power situation or remembered to give him a few extra energy fillers.

    Tower: Aw well who needs Euphie when you have Kaguya. ^.^
    Amen to that ^^

    NinjaKai: One thing really didn’t make sense. Mao who was practically turned into swiss cheese was repaired for the most part. The avalon i’d expect would have medical facilities just as advanced as a Brittanian hostpital. Yet they can’t heal a simple gun wound.
    like i said x pages ago…
    o well, we cant really expect sunrise to not make ANY mistakes for the awesome mess that is code geass. maybe KyoAni. but not sunrise. though this is quite a big step up from most of their other series… GSD… cough, cough

    Tensai: If it hasnt already, i find that episodes just keep getting better. Episode 23 was definately the best for me.
    thats exactly what i thought too. when i watched 22 i was all like “omfg this is da best geass shit eva” but then 23 came along and i repeated that line XD… i wonder if sunrise can do a good enough 24 and 25 to make me do that again, cuz that would be masterful. 4 eps leading to the ending, each better than the last…

  • April 1, 2007 at 1:46 amLex

    Well it all depends on where she was shot, by what type of gun, at what range, her body size/type, etc.

    Most of all, it’s anime. Jeez :P

  • April 1, 2007 at 5:21 amhoho

    I think trying to suppress Geass influence breaks her body even more.
    And her body looks so weak too.
    Somehow I believe that she may remembers who shot her and that crushes her mind into pieces.
    To me, she seems to die because of sadness even if Susaku lied to her about Japanese.

    I must say that I didn’t feel sad by watching anime for a long time. T-T Good job Sunrise.

  • April 1, 2007 at 7:00 amNobunaga

    WOW! This episode was a really roller coaster ride with lots of action and drama (Eupies dead was rather sad). But to end with a such cliffhanger was too much and now we have to wait about 2-3 months for the two last episodes. Not funny!

  • April 1, 2007 at 9:24 amhmmm

    man if its bandai the ending of the series will prob have the emperor build a giant death star or weapon of mass destruction and suzaku flies up trying to destroy but to only get lelouch knocking his machine down and ejecting C.C. from the gaiwan. Then he goes up to the thing and says something like this world doesn’t need people like us then kills his dad and he destroys it while still in it, then it hits the ocean. Then after a year later Nunally becomes the empress and people from around the world comes greeting her, then a noble family comes to greet her with a servant that has bandage around his face which is Lelouch(or make him have amnesia as well) and after that they leave with Nunally not knowing who it was cause shes never seen her older brothers face, while he’s leaving he passes Suzaku and Kallen(who are knights now) and they turn around thinking if they have seen him some where before(and throw C.C. somewhere in there) and it ends here. Since it’s bandai this ending isn’t completely impossible…

  • April 1, 2007 at 2:00 pmTax

    The United States of Japan, eh?

    Well. I’m not sure if that’s a jab or not. Still, seeing Euphie’s ultimate fate was heart-wrenching. She just tried to do good, and she almost succeeded! SHE ALMOST WON — she beat Lelouch.

  • April 1, 2007 at 2:15 pmTax

    You know what I just realized? The most amazing thing about this show is that it makes you care for every single character it introduces. You want everyone to be happy, but you don’t know if they will be. “Chigusa” and Ogi, I wanted them to be happy, but it’s not going to happen that way, is it? I wanted Euphie to live on and get her wish, but it didn’t happen. Etc. etc.

  • April 1, 2007 at 4:37 pmRickaZ

    once again we’ve beaten the recor mark on commments wow Code geass has a grat chance in being the ANIME OF THE YEAR

  • April 1, 2007 at 6:44 pmGenesis

    just a few last random thoughts:

    at first glance i thought this series was going to suck hardcore. lol it took me a while before i even decided to give the show a chance and i must say it is the best i have seen.

    since lulu’s geass evolved it has been said that the only one left for him is now C.C. but when u think about it he can just hook up with someone he has already geassed or just give someone a stupid command like come eat with me. well with his bad luck the geass might just evolve again to the point that the commands are taken to an extreme. just picture someone eating till they die. even better picture a fat kallen stuffing her mouth till she died lol (someone needs to make a pic like that). but anyways, since im all for the lulu/c.c. pairing, im happy with how it turned out.

    last thought here. well lets see. suzaku went insane, lulu just cracked, and c.c. is the only one that is happy. seriously how the hell can this end on a good not without one of the two main guys getting killed by the other. my personal thoughts on this is that there is no way that they can kill off lulu with a second season in the mix. just think, what director would kill off his most popular character. all so there is NO code geass without lulu and no this in not my usually suzaku bash. think hard about this one. it the show did not have lulu, then how would it be any different from gundam seed. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL! here is how i think it should end to keep every one happy. i feel that they should do the whole suzaku shots down lulu’s mech or self-destructs with it (just destroying it for u suzaku fans) then they break out the ending credits. after the credits they show lulu waking up to see c.c. sitting over him. after a few seconds he ask her who she is and she answers with her real name. well anyway i feel that part is all good at least till the second season and somehow we regain the old lulu with his bad ass attitude. yes i know that my ending is just screaming for more cheese to be added but after noticing how popular suzaku is with some people, if lulu somehow kills him half the fan group will be pissed and the other way around. either way the show owns and there is NO WAY IN HELL that they will kill off lulu and if they do it would be until the show is completely over.

    sorry the post is so long but since its the last ep for a while i had to get it all out. also i would like to hear yalls comments on my thoughts

    omg i am soo pissed AGAIN!!!
    the fact that euphie DIED in one episode …or within 10 minutes of getting SHOT!

    i mean..MAO for godsake took about 50 FUCKING BULLETS! and he was up and kidnapping

    a bit unbelievable but i hope they make it up in the summer ;)

  • April 1, 2007 at 10:02 pmYuzu

    You people are idiots comparing love interests in this anime rather than the frigging point of this story. If you want namexname go watch a fucking soap opera. Anyways, i think this series is getting really good since we have V.V. the newcomer

  • April 2, 2007 at 12:31 amgaerg

    here’s my 2 cents, I believe that Euphie’s death is a quintessential step in advancing the story. First, if Japan is established according to Euph’s vision, then Zero has little to no chance of gaining any solid political power to oppose the Britannian empire (not that it should matter, but we can all speculate that if Zero didn’t pull that move on Euph, the series would end rather nicely with the scheduled 25 ep run, but since they are going for another season, her death seems appropriate) Suzaku’s contract with VV just complicates the Geass universe- to me it looks a lot like a X/1999 twisted version.

  • April 2, 2007 at 8:33 amKaede

    @gaerg: Agree, there are no more rebellion without Euphie’s plan fail. (But I don’t want her dead) Well, though they dont said it it’ll be a second season but I think they had planned it at the beginning. Sunrise just waited for a right moment to announce it when the Geass popularity is increase. Between, there are impossible to start 2nd season now (that suppose to air as early as this fall) compare to they start Geass Project from 3 years ago. I hope the quality is still as good as now or even better.

    @Genesis: Yes, its absolutely the best anime this year. ( I still hook to Gundam Seed as my most favourite. Since there are 100 episodes & Geass is 25 episodes, or added another 25, its can’t be compared right?) I don’t think the two main character will die, at least for now. People always like to watch the battle & struggle between two friends. Sunrise must has to utilize it before cut them off so Lelouch & Suzaku will still remain in the 2nd season. Well, I hope both of them will remain till the end. Its possible to happen because Code Geass is full of plot twist so maybe in next season the truth of Geass will reveals & its changes Lelouch’s thought now. Ahaha, Lelouch get amnesia that sounds interesting but I dont think it’ll happen. Code Geass is about a show of rebellion not a show of romance. He need to achieve his goal plus C.C. is not a human. I never think Lulu has some feeling to C.C. or even in the future. First, love love thing is not something he should thought now. Second, Lulu is a realistic person that he will not fall for somebody thats not a human.

    Um, last its something I thought for sometimes. If Nunally is killed at epi 24 & 25 by somebody then Lelouch will fully become Zero & no way to return. I still wonder what the last epi title indicate – ‘Zero’. I hope my thought is wrong. Then is Shirley. I still think she has the possibility to reveal Lulu’s identity. Nina is gonna do something for sure. Maybe Shirley will accidentally leaks out Zero is Lulu seeing Nina suddenly act. Let see who is the person. Will it be Suzaku, Villetta, Shirley or that Kyoto old man?

  • April 2, 2007 at 7:07 pmFumi

    In my opinion, this ep was one of the best :) and i’m very happy tah Euphie is dead now, i didn’t like her, she was annoyning

  • April 2, 2007 at 9:24 pmAloneinVoid

    @iFool
    If someone shoots you to stomach or your liver gets shot, i dont think you will survive long.
    If normal human gets shot into liver, he dies in aproximatelly 39minutes. There is no helping for it, even transplantation wouldn’t help, since the materials from liver have already poisoned your body.
    If normal human gets shot into stomach, he will die in LESS than 39minutes…
    Livers, Stomach, Heart, forehead&vertebral column are the considered deadly places. Forehead & Vertebral column hits are considered 1hit-kills.
    As for Mao. First of all, Lelocuh ordered “to put him down”. So Policemen could have took it directly, shoting to his legs, arms and so on, so when Mao fell to the ground they would stop shoting. Also, maybe Mao was SOO lucky to not be hit into any vital spots.

    As About geass…Lelouch stated that the order was something what is very against her nature…that for sure helped, but the main fact was that she got her will up to “not think about the order she got” for Suzaku. Everyone knows, that dying people can’t think cleary. Geass orders most likely can be negated in near-dead state, when human brain begins to stop functioning, which later results in blidness(“suzaku, i can’t see you~”) and late to full stop of it. Since brain stops working, heart stops working too, because nervious system stops giving the impulses…

    @yuzu
    While its not centered about love stuff, it still DOES exist. Lelouch, hismelf statedthat yufi was his first love. He also said some things at episode 14, that can be implicated that he is kinda in love with Shirley. The love is always there, although is not a main center, like “love saves the world”, but it IS here.

    @gaerg
    thats very clear. I got a feel that CLAMP character designs are cursed… >.or his prototype, Sayoran going on Show Spoiler ▼

    which, for suzaku, would be avenging Yufie.
    talking about clamp…have i heard it clearly? Sumeragi Kaguya ? I think it was Subaru’s last name in X/1999, Tsubasa Chronicle and Tokyo Babylon…So now its clear, that Author of COde geass is giving out constant homages to the ones who did character designs :E.

    @Kaede
    or IF nunally is killed, Lelouch may go into coma/get amnesia or even redemption…since, he might begin to understand on that his actions indirectly killed the one for which he was doing these actions. As for Shirley leaking everything…Possible, but not likelly. I can fully see Shirley-plot getting thrown into second season. “Zero” episode title made me wonder two….it leaves few possibilities: either Shirley will blow it out, Suzaku will blow it out or Lelouch will fake Zero’s death(“dead heroes work better than alive-just-became-president heroes…)

    maybe they’ll make a harem or comedy version of this series like they did with FMP…

  • April 3, 2007 at 3:05 amsari

    dang… lulouch… wow things took a really sharp turn. I was kinda dissappointed when i found lulouch giving up so easily but to expect so many japanese killed out of a mere accident and having the plot turn a whole 180* o.o…. wow… *speechless*
    waahh! I can’t believe it ends here for now. >_

  • April 3, 2007 at 1:06 pmvelvy

    Somehow, now that i finally watched the epi… (gg sub) I am just curious why Suzaku used Euphie’s phone. The rest of the conversation is still ambiguous to whether Suzaku really knows Lulu’s identity as Zero…

    Anyway, code geass seemed to have gone wrong from the start… Lelouch seem to accept geass so easily… never pondering if anyone else has geass… and never ask CC if there are more “CC” (pple who can grant geass) around.

    Basically, geass plot ish so so messy now, I wonder how Sunshine gonna conclude it. Too many questions to be answered. Just a few to name it…

    1) C.C. real name
    2) What is the contract
    3) Why C.C. got this geass power
    4) What is C.C. made of? (she doesn’t die -_-)
    5) Whatz up with the king???
    6) Marianne’s death????
    7) How did nunally turned out this way??
    8) Lloyd, cecil & vakstan’s relationship?

    ok… more questions, and no answers… 2 epi left… and the rest to season 2… I really hope sunshine dun screw this up….

    and pls dun kill lulu… T_T

  • April 3, 2007 at 2:13 pmKaede

    @velvy:Its Sunrise, not Sunshine.
    Well, someone please tell me how to so patiently wait for the remaining 2 episodes. *0*

    My opinion:

    1. I like Euphemia, death is a little bit harsh of an ending for her, but of course if they let her live and she found out what she done. Death might be less cruel to her.
    2. I totally hate suzaku, no matter what everyone say he is still a god damn traitor to me, a traitor to his family, traitor to his ppl, and a traitor to his country. I hope he dies, thats the most proper way to treat a traitor.
    3. Lelouch is a traitor some might argue but at least he had a good reason for doing that having witness your own mother being murder and no one cares, can’t blame the guy. But suzaku what was his reason to turn traitor, just because his country is loosing a war, he can just go surrender and change his nationality, he got no backbones if he hadn’t notices there are still many japanese fighting for freedom unlike him being the spineless coward he is. U know what they say once a traitor always a traitor, wonder what happen if the Japanese actually won the war later, will he turn traitor again and say hes going back to being japanese, god I hope he get kill soon lousy traitor.

  • April 4, 2007 at 7:17 pmTensai

    @Mike

    So your argument basically is, If your a traitor, have a good reason to become a traitor. Right? Not, All traitors deserve death. And yes you did say you dont care what anyone says, your totally entitled to your own opinion, but Japan was losing a war very badly. And the president (his father) states that they will go down fighting, a tactic they wanted to use maybe cause of honor (remebering samurai), Suzaku being what? 5 years old? kills his father because he sees no point of fighting. His 5-year-old brain just seemed like it was the right thing to do, and he did save countless lives. Now, Lelouch, did he just not kill many many japanese just by uttering a few words? unintentionally maybe, but he still said them, and then goes onto blaming Euphemia, noting that Lelouch killed his half-brother AND sister who was also his first-love. Lelouch was a traitor to his family, and HE will also go on to kill his father (probably) or at least have the intent on killing him. And yet you still bash Suzaku for killing his father, based on the fact that more people would die if he hadnt done it? Suzaku still has traumetizing memories as Lelouch, given that he did show some weakness when he did it, does not. Also A spineless coward does not pilot Lancealot that will become a huge trump card on any battlefield and also does not have absoulute resolution in avenging someone he loved very dearly, even if the dangers are extremely high.

    On another note Can anyone see Shirley telling Everybody Lelouch is Zero, cause of much of a screw up she is (indirectly, kinda, possibly had a helping hand in killing Euphie) then Nina going and killing nunally, saying stuff like, ‘ill show you what it feels like, taking away the most important person etc. etc.) Lol just me?

  • April 4, 2007 at 8:54 pmMike

    @Tensai

    quote/ Lelouch was a traitor to his family, and HE will also go on to kill his father (probably) or at least have the intent on killing him./Quote

    But the difference between Lelouch and Suzaku is Lelouch actually having witness his mother being murder while Suzaku is actually the person that murder his own father. In that sense Suzaku is an actual traitor while Lelouch is force to being a traitor by situations. Secondly Japanese believes in samurai spirit even now there are countess ppl who would rather die in honor than surrender to a foreign power. So now having bow down to a foreign power and pilot a robot that fight his own ppl who try to win their freedom, if u don’t call Suzaku a traitor I don’t know what is. If he really wanna redeem himself then he better steal the lancelot and use it against the britannia empire to help his ppl win their freedom.

  • April 4, 2007 at 9:08 pmhmmm

    In a sense what Suzaku did wasn’t wrong or make him a traitor because back then Japan had little chance at beating brittania, but what Suzaku is doing now is being a traitor because now Japan having a chance at winning Suzaku sides with brittania…

  • April 6, 2007 at 12:01 pmKamion

    I finally got to watch Code Geass from Episode 1 to Episode 23… I’m just that lazy D:

    I kinda… don’t think anymore that the Emperor really did abandon Lelouch, or if he did, he does not think of Lelouch that way anymore. Maybe it was all to give Lelouch a reason to act, to prove that he is the strongest of all the possible heirs after all, but that’s just speculation based on the Emperor yelling “He really did it!” when the massacre took its place.

    That leads me to all those questions the series has left me with until now:

    - Who and what is C.C.? (And V.V. for that matter).
    - What did V.V. tell Suzaku, did he maybe even offer Suzaku a contract?
    - Who exactly is the Emperor?

    For me it is pretty clear that the Emperor ordered the Killing of Marianne. That or Schneizer (or someone who was not introduced until now, but that aside). I wonder why she had to die? I can’t seem to put the feeling aside that all this was planned by the Emperor all along with some kind of ulterior Motive..

    Argh I wanna know. If they make us wait for 24 and 25 they could at least start season 2 right with it, because waiting two cours after having waited for the last two episodes will be hell :P

    awesome episode

    awesome episode!

  • April 10, 2007 at 3:48 amChaos

    epic ep. suzaku/lulu final battle is a comfirm,even if suzaku knows lulu=zero, or not.
    somehow, we r seeing more of zero then lulouch latly,i got a feeling that luluoch will evenally become zero as in he can no longer face anyone without his mask, and be called zero 24/7.
    reason 1:he cannot look anyone in the eye without people seeing his’werid’ eye.
    2:being able to give command randomly isn’t helping him lead a normal life. and
    3:as can be seen, his geass is getting stronger/evoling slowly but surely, even if he can control it/keep himself sane, he cannot be sure when his geass might become a unlimited useage one.

    having him end as light will be a sad case, and worst if suzaku/kira lives.

    alot of things to expect in the following 2ep(or hopfully events leading to season 2). with sunrise, crappie endding is to be expected(maybe thats the reason for the delay? to make the endding better?) and of cose, a Season 2(they do know how to make money).well… can only wish and pray for a good endding…..

  • April 10, 2007 at 11:13 pmKasha

    If Lelouch does end up dying I think I might end up going as crazy as Nina…well maybe not THAT crazy…but yea, they better not make Lulu die =.=

  • April 11, 2007 at 10:18 amHemlock

    it seems to me now that code geass = GSD+death note (or that’s the impression it gives me =/)

    Code geass really reminds me too much of GSD and death note.
    urgh. the way things are going, the ending might just… i want neither lelouch or suzaku to eend up snuffed out =S

  • April 11, 2007 at 5:19 pmZealot

    I honestly think that V.V. told Suzaku about the Geass and Zero’s ability. So, Suzaku now knows that Euphemia was not consciously ordering the massacre. At the same time, I don’t think he’s told Suzaku that Lelouch is Zero.

    Then again, I suppose you could interpret their conversation in so many ways. Thats why I love this series.

    Nina’s face was so uso-da!
    I’m going to hope,pray that the finale will be so awesome that Code Geass’s lame slow-as-dehydrated-snail pace and corny add-ins will become irrevelant and this will make the top anime on my list.
    In the meantime I have to watch Rozen Maiden and Gurren Lagann.:P
    And if I get bored,rewatch Top o Nerae!2 and finish Higurashi.

    well… i was just wondering why isn’t nunally dead or something… just blinded and handicapped. LOL!!! =XXXX That sounds really evil. I mean if they killed the queen… How come she managed to sorta survive? HAHAA!

    Also, if she was able to see before that, how come she can’t tell who are those who attacked her?? I mean maybe they are masked… oh wait… maybe they are in knightmares, so she can’t tell who those are or anything. weird weird werid.

    Pardon me for spelling sunrise as sunshine. My bad. Sunrise did gundam seed… =.= (wasn’t a big fan of it..) and they did neon gensis evangelion (For evangelion, their first ending cause them to have their building vandalised and they received threats, curses and blackmails from fans. >.

    Is the anime over after episode 24 and 25 or is it just the end of the season?

    yes.. zero/lulu is my type…EVILLLLL…

    is 23 not the last episode?? is there further ep’s?

  • June 29, 2007 at 2:48 pmdeads

    This is late, but I have a theory concerning Darlton – you know, the other guy that hangs with Cornelia. In episode 22, Lelouch barely stumbles upon him and then we don’t really see anything about him until he’s in a knightmare “I must get to the princess” – I’m theorizing that Lelouch geassed him (the whole “You are part of Cornelia’s innermost circle”) to either a) kill Cornelia, or b) something crazy I can’t begin to comprehend because Code Geass does that sometimes.

  • July 7, 2007 at 6:20 pmDeiframCerebral

    HAHAHAHAHA! Nina looks SO fucking dumb!! And now a Eulogy:

    So long Euphemia, you pink-haired bitch.
    I’m sure wimps around the world cried.
    When you got shot, then died.
    You were the most irritating of them all.
    Hope you rot. Cheers.

    Fucking peacenik…

    Lelouch have no chose to kill Euphie. He can’t turn it off and now he’s crying in deep inside of his heart and pretending to laughing crazy, but he still cry right now.

  • September 8, 2008 at 2:48 pmJohn

    wow, dam producers killed off yuffie, that was so disappointing that the show sucks now. :(

    EUPHIEEEE (no i’m not as disgustingly obsessed as nina…)
    but its so sad!
    i was nearly crying when lelouch shot euphie right in front of suzaku’s eyes.
    “you were probably my first love” :’(

  • August 3, 2009 at 3:16 pmJester Void

    OMG, this is really hard. I never thought a anime can touch me like taht. But Yuffies had beaten my heart
