I don't know why but I'm not eagerly awaiting the sub anymore. Maybe it's just getting old...

1 million Zero costumes! HAHA, great table turning!

Seems like the next episode was postponed due to the earthquake in China. They are now quickly revising the content.

Some are saying that the decision to cut the ep 9 broadcast was taken before the earthquake and has nothing to do with it, but there's no real evidence either way.

But yes, it's true that it has been cut. I will be replaced by some kind of live variety show thing filmed at a cross-dressing maid cafe in Akihabara.

Maybe wrong, or there are multiple reasons for this. They are thinking to move the airing time back to after midnight because of the low rating of the TV program (too much fan-services to watch this in the living room at 5 Sunday afternoon!). Anyway, the episode 9 will be aired the second next week. So don't worry!

Nothing has been announced about any plans for moving the broadcast slot. However, lots of people are suspecting it might happen, not because of any fan service, but because ratings are simply too low for a primetime show.

Well played Zero, gives more meaning to the last episode now.



As to the delay of episode 9;

It has absolutely nothing to do with ratings, that is all bull.

There’s no new episode next week. It appears instead to be some Akiba special featuring comedian Arino Shinya, idol Natsukawa Jun, comedy duo Sandwichman, comedy duo America Zarigani, and new voice actress Miyake Hitomi (who is making her debut voicing a character named Meeya I. Hillmick that is supposedly going to start appearing in episode 12).

On the plus side... Jun Natsukawa - only my #1 J-Idol <3333333333

Anyway read the damn thread http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=25645

Also Lulu just owned Suzu. Hard. Though I did get confused at some parts...

The many Zeros was a very WTF? inducing moment. Those Black Knights can sure change clothes fast! The Villetta x Ougi moments were love, though. And I really liked Zero revealing his identity to Sayoko at the end. It shows how much he trusts her; after all, she's cared for Nunnally too (both as her maid, and as a friend, I think).

Also, it was sweet to see that there are those who still believe in Euphie despite her official status as the massacre princess.

Well, for me it was the best non-action episode so far. Nice idea to exile almost whole nation. Also, some good broadening of Suzaku's personality for those who can only feel hate for him : P

Great episode, if the rumors about episode 9 being delayed are true it will really be hard waiting for it to air. I still don't understand how the black knights are getting all of their resources- producing 1 million zero suites would be a massive and expensive undertaking.

I'm not quite sure I can wait for two weeks. At least it is not a big cliffie like last week, but still! I love CG and don't understand the low quotes at all.
And I just read the titles up to episode twelve. Especially twelve sounds interesting.

I loved that scene as well and Sayoko's smile was just great. But I wonder how many more people are going to know about Lelouch being Zero. I kinda hope for Todo (I love that guy) because he knew him beforehand. And I suspect that Kaguya has an inkling as to who he is.

Darkreaper70 said:

Since CC has told him about Villeta's affair with Ogi, cute couple that they are. Lelouch shamelessly uses this to blackmail her.


So what about Li Xingke coughing up blood. Terminally ill? Hopefully there will be a bit more about him in the next episode(s).


Aw, I just can't wait!

Hmmm pretty strange episode, I didn't like the plot so I'm waiting the next one (in two weeks) to see what's really going on.

Haha 'Zaku. Though, I do feel my hate for 'Zaku is lessening. NO~

I wonder who put the other Euphemia candle thing in the water.
'Twas probably Cornelia if she's alive. Also, I hope my Xingke doesn't die. He's too hot. <3

Can anyone explain me detailed what he meant by being exiled from the country? What happens or what priveligdes you get while being Exiled out of a country?

I just don't get that part very well where Zero asking them for the exile deal thingy in private chat...

A brilliant plan by Zero there. They all got exiled, meaning they can't return to Britannia. And since it's a legal predicament, if the Britannians did shoot, they would just be breaking the law. If the Japanese had just attempted to run away, they'd be considered fugitives and hunted down as criminals by the Britannians. Zero used Britannia's own laws against them.

So Zero used their own law against them so the Japanese can escape 'peacefully'? Or moving to somewhere without being hunted down? But moving to where?

Still abit confused :(

They all went to the Chinese Federation. If they had ran away, Britannia could've ordered the Chinese Federation to stand aside since they're Britannian fugitives and the Chinese Feds can't do anything about it. Since Britannia had legally exiled them, they can't just go arrest them for running away. The Chinese Federation can also provide legal protection now that they're considered exiles.

hah, my first thought was 'im spartacus!'. Brilliant manuevering as usual by Lelouch, and im beginning to hate Suzaku slightly less. The Ohgi and Viletta interaction was a bit touching, and i cant wait to see where its going, since its really departing from the first season.

also, they lampshaded all the fanservice Code Geass has been doing with Cecile, which made me laugh

I think Zero and the Black Knights are going to take a break from fighting for now. I'm sure he is waiting for the Chinese Federation to make a move, before he does, against Britannia.

Yeah, this sure is V for Vendetta meets 4chan in anime form. I suppose this means Zero has given up on Britannia and is instead focusing on Project Chanology.

yay got to see Diethard again finally. boo on a 2 week wait. slightly better than last weeks but still a notch below normal. if lelouch is gone to china though, surely they'd notice and viletta and rolo would be in trouble breaking the promise? so does Lelouch return by himself?

I think Lelouch lit the other candle for Euphemia, I don't think we'll see or hear anything about Cornelia for a while still. It seemed odd Suzaku just let them kill the guy that attacked him. It's about time he started to think about why Zero killed Euphy, instead of just SUZAKU KILL.

When I saw all those Zeros, the first thing that came to me was V for Vendetta since they all disguised themselves. But the dog with the Zero mask just pure lulz.

Am I the only one that thought the way Cecile was so...uh dressed up see Zero completely out of left field or what.

That's exactly what I thought. ^_^

Well this episode turned out to be a great non-action one and and some points I wasn't sure where this all was heading but it had a great resolution. Great to see all the characters again and we finally see what Nina's been up to. Loved the Kagura & Cecile fanservice... much better than the Viletta fanservice a couple episodes ago. I wonder if Viletta x Ougi will become official (>_<)?

That movie was definitely the first thing that came to my mind as well, it was a pretty clever move for Lelouch. I didn't find the episode that good, well at least not the first half...

From the top:
Exile is considered a form of punishment. It's really little more than saying "leave and don't come back." Someone in exile is simply thrown out and forbidden to return, or at least guaranteed severe punishment if he or she does. The points to exiling someone are that 1) said individual can no longer directly influence people at home, 2) no issues with detaining and attempted rescues/escapes, and 3) said individual is quietly gotten rid of without execution or imprisonment, thus preventing him/her from becoming a martyr.
This form of punishment is most commonly used against political dissidents, especially those with high popularity.

The trick Zero pulled hits on multiple levels. First, if they attack or arrest even one "Zero," they kill any and all credibility they have - not just with the Japanese, but with other nations and factions within Britannia as well. On the grander scale, it would especially play havoc with the peace that was just brokered with France. Second, they would be violating their own law. Finally, related to that, they'd be creating martyrs, which is the very thing an exile sentence is trying to prevent.

As to where they're going, everything points to China.

It just helps to leave your common sense on the door mat before watching Code Geass. Absolutely nothing falls within the realm of reality. Just accept that this guy is amazing and can pull battle plans and a million Zero suits out of his ass.
