one million people with one million outfits? Where did that come from? How did Zero communicate his plans to his people??? Not well explained....


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.


I just can't keep saying LOL to this absurdity....
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Where did he find the time to organise a million outfits let alone the funding for that many?? But seriously, that was a brilliant plan.
Btw, Villetta x Ougi

Like mystik, I also think Lelouch lit the other candle. I also think Suzaku thought the same thing, as well.

I could never really bring myself to hate Suzaku (he looks too much like Syaoran xD Damn you, clamp) and so I am especially glad that we hear him coherently wonder the reason for Lelouch killing Euphy. I wonder if some of his anger has died out, as it seems like he's almost wishing that Lelouch has regained his memories so that he can question him. They really do still care for each other, and a little part of me can't help but hope they'll be able to join forces and over throw Brittania in the end.

It seems the writers/director have made a clear choice to try and soften the viewer's thoughts on Suzaku as well, as many people have begun to state that they don't hate him as much anymore. This, I am glad for, as I am getting increasing disgusted by the childish "Suzaku diiiiiiiieeeee" statements.

Seems like Viletta might not always be so opposed to Zero based on her swaying feelings. Yay.

So Lulu, are we attacking Brittania on a global scale now (yay) or are we going to be heading back to Japan soon?

Needed moar C.C.

But as everybody else said, great non-combat episode.

Hmm. I thought for a minute that Lulu was actually leaving Japan... and Rollo, but I corrected my dumb self. I still have hope for that Lulu x Rollo scene. :D

He did light the candle. The part after Nunnely asked the question, they showed Lulu walking to Rollo and Rollo saying something along the lines of "are you done" and lulu saying, "yes I no longer have any ties left here". So it's pretty clear he did the other candle.

I also agree about Suzaku. I'm happy he's finally thinking with his head and not with is mecha or gun. Who knows how long that will last though.

I can only guess Zero's main goal now is to head for the capital and target the King since Nunnely basically has control over Japan. I think thats probably one of the reasons Zero asked Suzaku "Will you be able to protect the remaining Japaneses that where left behind".

As for Cornelia, I have a feeling shes in hiding for the purpose to find out what really happened to Lulu's mom. Everyone in the series either thinks she's dead or missing so what better time to investigate whats going on.

I just had a thought.....what if a japanese person honestly wanted to go into the new SAZ only to be hopelessly confused by everyone changing into zero costumes around him? That would have been hilarious heh.

Dang, it's going to suck with the longer wait. =P

I really don't know where this series is going. I'm not complaining, I still love it, etc, but I just don't know what to expect after this episode. I too am also really confused about the Chinese and what exactly they're doing.

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.


Remember how Zero gets his cell phones and his Knightmares and just about anything else he wants (hint: it has something to do with the name of the series)? Plus, you know...some people just give them stuff... because rebellion is cool?

Ha! Assuming you're able to suspend your disbelief about where he had a million Zero suits produced, that was a brilliant move! Awesome to see.

Like others have said, it was a rare heartwarming scene to see Lelouch take off his mask in front of Sayoko.

So this feels like it puts a cap on one part of the series. The Japanese are free from Brittannia rule. Although, being housed by the Chinese Federation isn't quite independence, it's a step in the right direction. I would imagine that their search for a new land isn't something Zero's going to be directly involved in.

So I'm wondering where the series will go next (no spoilers please, I'm just speculating). I'd be surprised if the Knights left Zero, but they did get much of what they wanted, so there's less of a reason to continue to follow him. So maybe not. I don't think he'll try to go back to the Japanese mainland, so I'm guessing the next stage will happen closer to wherever Schneizel is and the king of course, focusing on his personal revenge.

i agree the first arch if you want to call it that is over and it will be moving more into his personal goals.

I hope we get to see more CC soon. This season has been seriously lacking of the CC.

I think that this was a very awesome episode!!

I just LOLed hard when everybody "cosplayed" as Zero! Where did he get all of those?

I'm liking Suzaku even more... Whee!! "Zero understands me."~~
(shoot me! yeah! i'm a SuzaLulu dork! as well as RolloLulu~~~)

But I don't really understand this... Japan (Area11) is a property of Britannia.... so they can't live there... Where are those 1Million people going to go... And I don't think China will accept all of them...

And what about the emperor and VV? Zero is not done with them...

I'm guessing that the emperor and the Chinese will have something to do with the coming episodes...

Can't wait~~~ XD

Depending on how you look at it, the funding for all of the costumes could have been done a number of ways. If you figure there are 1,000,000 ppl, plus Lelouche's political backers, if enough people chipped in what they could(less for the poorer ones and more for the ones better off) the money isn't actually the hard part of the deal. I would be more concerned about the timing involved in producing that many costumes in a limited amount of time.

I thought it was a great plan to get all the rebels out of Japan where they couldn't cause anymore damage to the plans that Nunally is trying to put into effect. Lelouche has probably changed his main goal towards taking care of that jerk of an emperor and his empire. Just because somebody used their head and found a loophole doesn't mean they're lame. "A clever hawk hides it's claws" Using force or violence sometimes isn't the smartest way to go about it. Now that they're exiles, the Britannian government can't legally touch them unless they come back onto Britannian soil. Leaves them as much time as they want to make plans.

Suspend disbelief and this episode will be awesome. I'm wondering what path the show will take now, still in Japan or elsewhere? Maybe a Chinese Federation arc. But I doubt Lelouch left the country though since he is still under observation and while the people observing him are now serving him (Viletta and Rollo) he can't just leave otherwise they're gonna die.

*sigh* again another 'plain' episode.. And it seems here that season 3 is likely.

AND worst of all,

Pizza Butt didn't even showed up for more than 15 seconds in the episode itself,
15 seconds,
15!!
And not even a single line spoken, she's only there to strike pose, man, what teh fruit T.T
(those 15 seconds excludes Re-cap, OP, and ED)

All in all, I only learned nothing but the names of 2 new characters: Romeyer and Kanon. Plus, we have a new character, the 'Chinese Yotsuba&' lol

pretty good episode. mainly, its g for geass.
i loved that part.
zero's plan was interesting, except for the part that it is really interesting how he set things up.
the live geass is still intact. but suzaku knows about it. i wonder how, since he is supposed to forget everything when he gets geassed. anya is cute
Nina's whereabouts are shown.. she is with gaynischel, and it seems like she is somewhat important to him
princess kaguya is just so cute... the hug was awesome.. she, they are married? O.O
cecile with hot outfit was lols
villeta x oughi, yay
xing guy has some illness, i wonder what.
suzaku, YES, you are not a dumbfuck anymore.
he actually thought of what to do
LOLz at doggy zero.
million zeros was fun
sayaka (was that the name?) heartwarming part, seems like lulu trusts her, and like she is part of the black knights somehow.
no ep for two weeks, bleh.... no previews either.

good ep .

I didn't like the rest of the episode much but the scene where all the Zero's were revealed made up for it big time. It was pretty awesome.

It was heartwarming to see Lelouch reveal himself to Sayoko , but that means there won't be a kidnap scene like I thought =(, plus what will happen when they find that Lelouch has conviniently disappeared.

and what the hell is going on with C.C? I didn't see her in this episode at all.

Edit: Scratch that. I remember she was in a zero suit at the end.

I'm pretty sure that they only forget their memories after they finish what they were ordered to do. Suzaku is technically still in the process of doing Lelouch's order of "do not die" so it's natural that he is aware of it. Or VV could've told him that he was geass'd before... or both even.

WOW. I never expect Lelouch to think of this crazy method. And I really hate that glasses girl who has a grudge on Lelouch. She's just so creepy when she go psycho at Euphy's death.

I think the episode was lame, but strangely epic at the same time. The 1 million Zeros were totally unexpected. Suzaku got owned, which servers him damn right.

And the other person who lit a candle for Euphemia was probably Cornelia or Nina (I still hate Nina.)

How one million people managed to change into Zero costumes before the smoke dispersed is beyond me. I'm glad Suzaku got PWNed, though. Serves him right. Lelouch never meant to kill Euphie, dammit! Get over her and go yaoi on Lelouch xP You're still alive thanks to him!

Well Lelouch never meant to Geass Euphie which ultimately resulted in his pulling the trigger.

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

Very V for Vendetta.

Good non-combat episode.

And also very "I am Spartacus" and they even do a similiar situation in Three Amigos. Actually it's been done a lot of times in movies and that's what makes it kind of disappointing. I loved the tension in the episode but I wish the writers could have come up with something a little more original than that. I guess they needed a way to get 1 million people out of the country for whatever they have in store for the rest of the season.
