Not me personally, but I am certain most of the Japanese people would. I suspect there are few "heroes" in military actions that would hold up to close scrutiny of every action in their career. Combat in real life is rarely a clean and honorable business. People sometimes compromise morals and beliefs they would otherwise uphold to save their own life or that of comrades, or accomplish necessary objectives.

The one taint I can think of was the massacre at the Geass Order. While it was Lelouch's intention to wipe Geass out of existence, and it could be argued the civilian researchers were working on a military project, killing them all seems unnecessary. Lelouch himself stated his original intention was to use them, so apparently he considered the alternative of capturing them to be feasible.

Whoa you just gave a speech O.o Your good at debating, so I'm going to refrain from arguing with you.... But I agree with you about the G.O. part... they even killed little children. But ultimately, V.V. was killed so the effort was sort of worth it, I guess. Also, the Liberation area or whatever it was called... I'm sort of mad at Lelouch for accidentally getting Euphy to act like that and then commanding the B,K. to go out and kill her She was better off alive so that Suzaku wouldn't go grief-crazy

I have to wonder how the story might have proceeded had you used a more benign example of what he could command her to do with his Geass.

Of course, even some examples that initially appeared benign could have become torture. Remember that Britainnian dealing in refrain and the 11's who were his lackey's? Although Lelouch only ordered them to do harmless things, there was no implication to stop. They would have continued doing what they were doing until they collapsed from exhaustion, and then immediately started again once they regained conciousness, until they were found and restrained and/or sedated.

I think the biggest danger that would have occurred had Euphemia came out unscathed (i.e, Lelouch would have suggested he could command her to stand on her head and recite a nursery rhyme), and Lelouch joined her in her plan, Charles' plan would likely have succeeded.

Wooowww you have some serious opinions on this <3 Why don't you go design an anime? xD Yeah maybe its true that Lelouch treats his Geass victims as pawns sometimes... but I think a general point is he got Suzaku to kill him to get rid of the hatred carried on Lelouch.

About Charle's plan... I actually would agree with Lelouch.. who would want a world that never moves on? Never gets anything new? Nobody has ambitions?

I finished watching Code Geass R2 just an hour ago, I loved this anime for its mind twisting thoughts and plot twists especially the Euphemia twist in the first season. The poetic justice of the whole series is great and sad at the same time. When the box set comes out I plan to buy both seasons.

The Black knights fight on the same side as terrorists organizations and are tainted by their decision that their political goals are more important than the terrorist methods of their fellow fighters. Oghri's group were described as terrorists in the first episode even by Lelouch. The Saitema Ghetto habored a terrorist group in "Get Corneliai" "Black Knight" showed that some groups of the JLF carried out terrorism.

The landslide at Narta killed many cilvilians when it destroyed the town of Narita (population over 90,000 in our world) and would have killed many more if the Britannians hadn't evacuated the town, probably because of Euphemia.

Lelouch made Ashford academy his HQ in the assault on Tokyo for the safety of Nunnally, even though the Black Knights there were a potential danger to the students. That may mean that Lelouch expected that hordes of angry Japanese from the ghettos would pour into the Tokyo settlement massacring every Britannian they could catch undefended, and that Ashford had to be defended to protect Nunnally.
If thee were such massacres during the Black Rebelllion many of the Black KNights would be guilty of loooking teh other way or even encouraging them.

The great military genius Lelouch could have found a way to trick Cornelia into fighting outside of Tokyo in somewhat less densely populated areas, thus reducing the civilian casualties from stray weapons fire. but instead there was fighting in the streets of Tokyo. lelouch in the Gawain shot down tens or hundreds of aircraft over the Tokyo area. Flaming wreckage could have killed many civilians on the ground.

During the Black Knight invasion of Japan in the second season the Black knights again fought inside Tokyo and F.R.E.I.J.A was used against them, killing millions.who wouldn't have died if the plan was to fight the decisive battles outside of the metropolis.

It should have been possible for the Black Knights to capture many at the geass directorate -- since the Black Knights managed to massacre everyone the people there don't seem to have been extremely dangerous fighters and many probably would have surrendered.
And weren't there children at the geass directorate?

I thought that Code geass was interesting until episode 23 when Euphemia was killed by Lelouch. Lelouch apparently killed her just to be melodramatic since even with her geass command capturing and confining her would would have been just as safe for the Japanese.

There can never be a good reason for killing anyone who can be captured as easily as the episode shows that Euphie could have been captured. I say that is one of the worst murders ever show on television.

Lelouch went from hero to zero in that moment. And I lost al interest in finding out what happens next since all the other characters together are much less good than Euphemia.
