I think that the best way to go is having Lelouch be brought back to life against his will. It somewhat helps since Lelouch would've been walking into Zero Requiem under the impression that he was indeed going to die. I've always thought that perhaps Charles gave Lelouch the Code without him being aware of that. Charles knew that Lelouch would be damned in a world ran by Schniezel. So Charles makes sure he will suffer for eternity by giving him immortality. After all immortality is frowned upon as something that is torture.

Please confirm with me:

Was Code Geass R1 and R2 used to be here on CR? I remembered watching both seasons on here, but can't find them on CR now.:(

When CR had several Bandai shows that were later removed, that had R1 (both subbed and dubbed), but to the disappointment of many, they never had R2.

Where the article that the writers said they weren't canon??? Not trying to pick a argument I'm just curious I mean one of the things Code Geass was good at was making good complex relationships which I actually enjoyed. He never dated Shirley at all did he? As with Kallen he cared for her as a close friend but he didn't really see her as a lover.


I don't actually know, I just know it made the rounds back in the day.
But also like, in the show, they don't really have any romantic interaction, unless you count two really out-of-place kisses that Lulu doesn't react to at all (and one for Kallen and one for Shirley).
It's not just about their physical position in relation to each other, it's about their attitude, emotions, the charge of the scene. Scenes between them are charged sometimes, but not sexually/romantically.
. . . . . . . . I would actually say we've never seen Lelouch romantically/sexually "charged". I ship him with Suzaku so much but I don't think they've had a sexually charged scene together. I think they've had more emotional scenes than he's had with anyone but Nunnally, but I don't think there's really been much sexual tension that Lelouch has been involved with at all.

But out of C.C., Kallen, Shirley, he doesn't see any of them romantically. He has such great relationships with all of them (and Milly), but they're all platonic - from his side, at least. Kallen and Shirley were definitely into him. (Also Lelouch and Shirley were an official couple for exactly one episode - R2 12-13, and then.... but he didn't love her that way, he loves her like siblings, so he would have had to find a way to break up with her if that hadn't happened... knowing them, she would have figured it out first and broke up with him.)

I think C.C. sees him as a means to an end in the beginning, but then over the course of the series, she starts to actually see him as a person, and an equal, and while those complicated feelings are stewing around in her, especially for someone who's barely felt anything for anyone for centuries, a bit of that seems like it might be romantic... but she gets over that, I think.

I agree about him being brought back against his will.

But... I don't think Charles really thought of that. I don't think he had time to think of anything after his plan failed.
The thing about Charles - what Lelouch and the audience learn about him over the series - is that he has a lot of the same issues Lelouch has, and he's part of the reason Lelouch has those issues. By this point, Lelouch has matured a lot part where he was when C.C. had to come save him from Cornelia in episode 7. Charles is sort of still at that level.

Oh yeah, so, Charles -> C.C. -> Lelouch and their issues. Putting this under a spoiler because it's long... and a spoiler.

They it made it very clear that he did love Shirley romantically. It wasn't one-sided. Most of his actions were emotionally driven whenever something happened to Shirley. The only other times his emotions clouded his judgement were when Nunnally was kidnapped during the Black Rebellion and when he thought she died, which is understandable since she's his sister who he's been fighting for the entire time. Shirley was the only non-family member who could influence Lelouch's mental state to that level over the course of the series. Even whenever he had to face Suzaku, he was still able to carry out his normal plans despite feeling bad about having to fight and deceive his childhood friend. Do you think Lelouch would still slaughter an entire organization out of rage if someone like Nina was the one who died instead of Shirley? Besides, he knew very early on that Shirley had feelings for him and was conflicted over how to keep her away for her own safety. He wouldn't have such a hard time thinking about it if the feeling wasn't mutual.

He did also love C.C. but likely not to the same extent and whether it was romantic or platonic is up for debate. I can see it go either way if this sequel chooses to touch on this subject. We do know that Lelouch and C.C. eventually grew to view themselves sort of as lifelong partners in one sense of the word (or at least until the end of Lelouch's life if they both expected him to actually die). C.C. even gave up her wish to die because of Lelouch and fully supported him without question. Although, she has kissed Lelouch and shown concern for him even before the events of R2, so whatever her feelings for him are have been kinda ambiguous.

That doesn't necessarily mean it's romantic, though. He could still be that way and love them both like sisters.

If it were Nina or Milly or Rivalz, I think he would be almost as upset as when it was Shirley, but not quite... but strong love doesn't necessarily have to mean romantic love. Extremely strong, non-romantic love doesn't require blood ties.

First preview was shown at some kind of event!

I don't know what event this was or if it was even supposed to be shown to the public and was leaked instead, but it's here!

The video quality is crap, but it looks like enough to tell what we can expect from the animation. It doesn't look like the animation from Akito the Exiled (at least not the Knightmares, everything else looks improved like Akito) so I think it's safe to assume it won't be a movie or OVA. It's probably still too early to tell, though... Or maybe it is a movie/OVA and they're just trying something different.

It was the Miracle Anniversary event.

This video is how this project was announced.

It got online because they showed the event video on TV for some sort of New Years' special.

I went to the live screening of the event, and they actually showed these clips on the screen, instead of on a video of the screen. They did look like good TV animation, not like a movie. Then again, they might be working to make it fit with Rebellion.

May I draw your attention to how gorgeous Suzaku looks in this video, because.... ummmmm yes.

If this is TV syndicated, I can see this either being amazing like CG:LoR, or bombing miserably under the expectations set by its predecessor.

This is just sad. I'm happy that Code Geass is coming back but does it have to be something about Lelouch. R2's ending was good as it was that there was no need for another season or movie


Damn it, I wanted NIghtmare of Nunnally to get animated or something else.

1. I still remember all the stuff that happened in the first two seasons, I have read the manga so many times.
2. All I will be happy with is seeing how Lelouch does stuff, like if the others find out that he is still alive, and all of that amusing stuff that leads to a storyline that satisfies my interests.
3. A little preview has come out for this, Crunchyroll has a news article on it. Find it yourselves though.

ALL HAIL LELOUCH!

I can't pretend I'm not worried at the idea of another season as R2 was an incredibly good ending and to follow that they really would have to do something spectacular. I also hope they try and take C:G in a new direction so that it adds something it's predecessors didn't have.

So apparently Geass tops all the Newtype polls in the new issue.

Yaaaaay.

Edit: I think this is new.
