What the Recap Covered:
-How Lelouch’s mother was killed, how he met Suzaku, and how Britannia invaded Japan.
-How Lelouch met C.C. and Suzaku again after he grew up.
-How C.C. got shot in the head protecting Lelouch, how he got the GEASS through the contract with her, and how she showed up again.
-The restrictions on the GEASS.
-Clovis and how he died.
-Cornelia and how she outplayed Lelouch.
-The appearance of the white Knightmare – the Lancelot.
-The Emperor of Britannia and his speech.
-Lelouch and his speech after he established his Black Knights.
-After the hotel hijacking incident, the world’s attention focused on the Zero and the Order of the Black Knights. The reactions ranged from repulsion to fear to adoration to fright to derision to delight. They had become heroes to the ghettos and villains to the Britannia settlements. Lelouch thinks that this is ok because they don’t need support from everyone. However, they still don’t have enough to drag out the Emperor.
-Nanaly feels that their reunion with Suzaku makes things like they used to be in the past. Lelouch tells her that he understands, but privately thinks that for the sake of that, he will destroy the world.
Watch the Preview! Mirror 1 Mirror 2 (4.69MB, XviD)
-The episode was pretty much a full recap, with only a few new shots. While there really weren’t any new scenes added in, Lelouch did voice over the entire thing.
-The end featured a cell phone promotion/contest for merchandise such as the OP single and a Lelouch figure.
-Because the only really interesting thing in this episode is the preview, I included extra caps and uploaded it for people who don’t want to download the full episode. Next week looks like we’re going to see lots of Kallen and her home situation, along with kitty Millay.
Mmmmmm nekomimi hotness…..
I feel really sorry for the maid in the preview…
dammit why the hell does these Britania kids are so racist.
In any case; I am downloading this episode rightnow >
awww Lulu is doing the voice?
grr, too bad… I really want CC to do the recap while she is eating pizza..
Guess I will pass on downloading this episode. It sucks that they did a recap episode so early in. The wait is going to feel long till the next episode is released now.
Waste of a week… 🙁 Atleast wait till your half way through with the series to do a recap. T_T
Looks like next week focuses on Karen/Kallen a bit. For some reason I’m not annoyed about this recap. I wonder who’s room the vandalized…..Or is the maid Japanese (well her name is Sayako).
good thing is that doesn’t count as an episode . it’s like GSD episode special .
they made this episode for people who joined in the middle of the serie
The Dark NIghts LOL… that was good
I still hope Lelouch will change his way of thinking one day. Destroying the world just because he wants to protect it? Destruction is the path to the dark side….I just hope Lelouch will focus on creating a more peaceful world where no one will suffer like he did instead of just wanting to destroy the whole of Britannia. Right now it seems like he’s trying to take revenge rather than starting a rebellion. I like Lelouch and I hope he won’t end up being another Light (Death Note).
dward, rewatch episode 3,4, & 8, Lelouch is a little bit more specific by what he means “destroy the world” in those episodes.
Lulu pretty much means destroying Britannia when he says he wants to destroy the world. He just wants to destroy it and rebuild it in the way how he thinks it should be
oh my…Lulu’s mother died with her eyes open…
@oracle, same thing as Suzuka, but he doesn’t want to destroy it just change it inside out. XD
Do I see Cornelia SMILING? Or is it just my eyes deceiving me?
let her smile, while she can… the time for her to die is near nevertheless… hi hi…
killing Saitama people just to lure Zero… yes over-deserving death, indeed…
…I rewatch the previous eps…and I believe Millay is blood related to Lulu and Nanaly and something really distrubing was right before Clovis’ funeral broadcast, the Emperor was like “I just talk to Clovis and proceed to the plan” or something along that lines – so was he talking to the dead Clovis? If so, would that make the Emperor know who Zero really is?
Show Spoiler ▼
Is it just me or the picture with Kallen and her brother had her mom’s face blotted out? Would her mom be that maid who is an Eleven?
Show Spoiler ▼
Yay! More Karen. I was hoping she wasn’t going to get the shaft through all the turn of events.
ok…something all wrong with my comp and now my posting looks a tad bit weird..forgive me.
^__^ YAYY. kallen’s finally gonna get more screentime hehe
I don’t understand why don’t lulu just geass Yuphie to take him to his father. And just geass his father to give him the thone and kill himself..
Britania without his father aren’t really Britania anymore, he can just build his world the way he wants.
Ofcourse this is anime, and to win that way is not fun
One it wouldn’t be fun. Two, neither Lulu nor his alter ego, Zero, are probably allowed anywhere near the king. Three, outside of Cornelia, probably none of the royal family cares about whether Euphemism lives or dies.
Kitty Millay…….why does that sound like a porn star name? Well, the image in itself is provocative enough to suggest it I guess.
not bad they showed us some new of the screencraps
From my guess; the next episode will be about Kallen and her brother.
The maid is totally her brother’s lover. She is also Japanese thus are being hate by many Britania.
Shirley probably try to confess too; but of course she can’t!
In the preview; lulu also said he had gained Cronalia’s weakness; Euphie. So he problably geass something to her by last episode.
Can’t make any good guesses about Miley the neko yet, hmmm
I wonder who the blond lady in the background of screencap 6 is.
the next ep looks good i’ve liked what her name.
Episode 8.5?! 0.0
i wish kallen’s hair weren’t so… spiky. ugh.
i don’t know why this version appears? – -*
it can make someone who hadn’t seen any episodes before now understand about storyline… but i think this episode is created for promote new soundtrack = =”
i don’t mind about it, may be it can make me more clear ^^
