because they have to? if they don't die.. there won't be any happy ending for the main characters if they continue to butt in the series.. but somehow I pity some evil characters.. because they too have a good side.. and they need some spotlight as well ^^

Well unlike the marvel or dc universe, in manga or anime when a bad guy loses he kinda loses his value as a character. So what are the writers to do? Take dragonball z, once freiza got beat down he loses his ability to be a challenge against Goku and the others and well. The point of the killing off of bad guys to to make room for bigger and badder ones such as Cell and majin Buu...at least that's what I think.

And besides I think Lelouch is more of an anti-hero than a villain.

Not true, in Code Geass Lelouche could be classed as the evil character and he is to some extent an evil genius, with no care for the moral well being of the world, as long as he can overthrow his father. He isnt dead yet (he may die in season 2 though)


Not exactly true, but close. he only cares about his sister. He would have given it up, except his eye activated permanently at the WORST possible incident. He does want revenge on the royal family (evil) for justice for his mother (good). He goes about it in a bad way, but there really isn't another option because the ruling class blocked him from seeking justice for his mother.


He could go about it in a peaceful way using his position as a prince of Britania but instead chooses the road of blood. He could have protected his sister in a world that doesn't feel the touch of reality. Whilst he does seek justice from his mother there are much easier ways to go about it. Just by using his geas to question everybody he would be able to track it back to the culprite and the very nature of his geas would stop anyone from remembering him.

Anyway that insane laugh should be proof enough that he is meant to be seen, to some extent, as evil. Whilst he would have given up his campeign against Britania (and accidently killed his half sister at the time) that still doesn't remove the fact that he hasn't hesitated to murder on his way there. Upon aquiring his power he had a bunch of troops shoot themselves, whilst he could have ordered them just to let him pass. I love that seen, the insantity in their eyes as they say 'yes your highness'.


True, true, to an extent he is evil. But he's not so far gone yet to be unredeemable like Light.


True, of course unlike light he comes more face to face with those he kills, Light was always able to do his dirty work in his room and then just see the results on the news. Lelouche has to stare into the eyes of a person when he orders his death, which makes Lelouch a lot cooler!!!
