Especially considering they're motive for doings so came from a rumor sparked by their arch enemy. Then all of a sudden they trust HIM over Zero and are teaming up with Shnizel as their best friend?? I find that hard to believe. You would think they would not trust Shnizel as far as they could throw him, and would refuse to fight on his behalf.

Can't agree enough there. It was completely one sided for the Black Knights to believe in Schniezel (however you spell his name) in a snap rather than getting Zero's side of the story. Even with that audio recording he revealed to them, how do they know if it's a real thing? Other than that, the other big gripe I had with the Black Knights is their happy ending. It's like they never paid the price for peace. Hell, not a single one of them died.

I guess they knew something was up, leading up to that ep, how zero was acting and certain missions they were doing which didnt seem to make sense to them

I finished the domestic box collection too. Loved the dub. Can't wait for R2

Um, I liked the ending, but I'm on the 'Lelouch drives carriage' boat personally.

Him and C.C. and Kallen should continue getting it on in my doujin rendition of the ending, heh heh heh...

:lol: Touche

As for the ending, I admit, I got a lump in my throat. No tears or nothing, but it was touching. Didn't make much sense how easily nunalee could figure out what Lelouch was thinking/doing, but it was moving. My biggest disapointment is like what is quoted above. I wanted to see a happy ending with Lelouch, CC, and Kalllen in a nice triangle of anime love. Or at the very least the black knights forgiving and thanking Lelouch.


Anyone think that Code Geass will continue? If so how do you think they'll pull it off? CC is still out there after all. My money is on a story around Suzaku, maybe he gets geass and Lelouch shows up in C's world just like Lady Marianne. All I know is that ANYTHING is possible with these writers.

Finished this yesterday after I taped it. LOVED IT. Well done series and the ending really had me going. I can understand how some points don't make sense, but I think it takes A LOT of analytical thinking to make the connections.

Spoiler :
Saw fan art of other people's rendition of the final scene long before watching the last episode. Based on that, I can see how Lelouch faked his death.

So did they explain how Nunally & Co. survived the FLAIA warhead?

Great series, but the plot holes are deep enough to break your shins. It's great if you can muster up the suspension of disbelief to watch it.

Who'd watch:

Code Geass: Fumoffu

with me? ^_^

THAT'S how you could continue this series.
The smattering of a few 'slice of life' eps, which were hilariously great [Tomato Sauced C.C. anyone?] could easily continue this show. Lelouch's 'fabulous' motions can also keep me laughing my ass off...

I'd like to stuff a pizza into C.C. myself ^_^

It's cute quirks like her pizza addiction [or Girls Bravo's Miharu's Banana addiction] or other anime gal's personality traits that really set her apart from a cold hearted monster...

The ep where the world's largest pizza ended up in a tree and her english dub "Where can I go to eat the world's largest pizza" was priceless...

Maybe it's best if they don't say. I don't know if people were happy or mad when they released L's real name but when I heard it I Lawl -iet (ed) (yes, the pun is intended, yes, I'm lame.) So maybe they'll save us if CC's real name sucks or as ________ as lawl -iet.

I'm still waiting to hear news on a sequal season/sequal series. Plothole believability aside, this show was just too good to not make more!

I have a hard time believing they won't milk this for the cash cow it is.

I just got Code Geass R2 Part 1 in the mail. It looks like they are changing things up a little.
They sold the first season in 6 DVDs, 4-5 episodes in each, sold 2 at a time in Parts 1-3. This time, it appears they are selling them in 4 DVD boxes, 7-6 episodes in each, at a slightly cheaper price. Also, the limited addition of Part 1 the first season came with an awesome box to hold the whole first season. The limited addition of the Part 1 of R2 came with no such box, but I have hopes for inclusion in a later set. Also, each set come with a volume of manga of Code Geass. The first two had Lelouch of the Rebellion 1 and 2, and the third has Suzaku of the Counterattack 1. The first part of R2 came with Lelouch of the Rebellion 4, so there is now a hole in my library.

I thought I'd give you guys an update, for those of you not willing to wait for the cheap box sets I'm sure they'll sell next year.
