  • The final battles take place for control of the world. Kallen defeats Suzaku, and Lelouch takes over the world, becoming dictator over all. It seems Lelouch has lost his path, until a masked man comes to attack him in front of the world...and it's Zero!moreless

    *Spoilers* I just finished the series, and I still can't get over how unbelievable it was. Code Geass is one of the best shows I have ever seen. The last episode was perfect, absolutely perfect. It has one of the best endings ever. Plot twist after plot twist finally led to this moment. When we find out that Lelouch was really a good guy all along, and planned out his dictatorship and death, everything just clicks into place. I cried when the whole world rejoiced at his death. It was such a twisted, sad way to see him die. He was a true hero in history, yet he would always be remembered as Lelouch, the man of evil. It is very moving to see Suzaku have to kill his best friend, and to watch Nanally when she finally realizes Lelouch's true intentions. I was so sad sad when I found out that Lelouch would never have his only dream come true, to spend his life peacefully with Nanally. The characters all came on to me; I loved every single character in the series, from Lloyd to Ohgi. The series and episode were veautifully written. This was a masterpiece of an anime, and I really wish I could see more forms of entertainment like this. It was a complete pleasure to watch this show from beginning to end. Thank you!moreless
  • In Code Geass, Lelouch Vi Brittania was a 10 year old price who witnessed his mothers death before the hand of his father. After that day, he vowed to destroy the Brittanian empire and avenge his mother. Eight years later Lelouch tries to pursue his goal.moreless

    I think that this was one of the greatest anime ever made. As from the review, a lot of people agree with me. Even on other web sites like anime news network people absolutely love this show. How anyone can hate this show is absurd. It hate one of the greatest and sadest endings of any show I've seen. The only thing that I don't like is that the main character died, it made me terribly filled with sadness. I wish that the show would have gone and started another season. I have seen that alot of people would like for another season of Code Geass. I give this show a 10 out of 10. I just love this show. I hope that people will keep watching this show and enjoy it for far more years to come.moreless
  • Definetely an epic ending to an unforgettable series.

    I just watched this episode a few minutes ago and I thought it was awesome! This is definetely an epic ending to an unforgettable series. Just when you thought Lelouch was a bad guy; he was really a good guy. In this episode, after the Damacles scene Lelouch and his followers enter the executing grounds on a parade. Zero enters right infornt of the parade, dodges gunfire and kills Lelouch. Lelouch wanted to die, so the people can understand what he really wanted to do to make the world a peaceful place. I really liked the music when Lelouch died. I found it very relaxing and it definetely set the mood. Poor Nunally. The scenes in the end were very good. Everyone seemed so peaceful, and their life was going the way the people wanted it to. I definetely will never forget this episode. Overall, epic ending, well thought-out episode, Lelouch is dead!, The world is saved! and an unforgettable episode.moreless
  • The absolute greatest ending I have ever been privileged to witness.

    Every so often, there comes along a series with the potential to move the earth and consequentially all of the lives upon it. Many lose their way, even though they are so ripe with potential and so full of passion. Many fall short of realizing their strength in its entirety and many are ultimately extinguished like so many embers from the fire of creation, never to see fruition. However, all it takes is a single spark to catch the world on fire. The people of our small planet, dry from disappointment, are longing the warmth of a roaring pyre of true strength that has realized its potential and all the world will stand in awe at the sight, marveling at the graceful beauty that a great series creates.

    Code Geass is one such creation. Its viewers, who have followed faithfully from the day Lelouch vi Britannia met the woman who would change his life forever will not be disappointed. Though you may read spoiler after spoiler, do not, under any circumstances, miss this episode. It is one for the annals of history to be referenced as an exemplar of the potential that the human mind can realize.moreless
  • This is the finale of Code Geass. It has a lot of action and concludes the series very well. You may be left with one or two questions but for the most part it works. And it does leave the series off in a good way.moreless

    This is the finale of code geass. A lot happens. In the past episodes it has seemed like Lelouce was trying to be nothing more than a dictator but this episode shows a conversation between him and Suzaku, where Lelouch was actually trying to make people hate him, so that the person who succeeds him would seem better or even a hero. That's where Suzaku comes in, at the end of the Britanian victory Lelouch is holding a perade and on his float zero appears. Zero gets by all defenses and kills Lelouch. After all the effort Lelouch has to use Geass to get the key of democles away from Nunally. And seemingly doesn't care about her at all. In the end Nanully finds out that Lelouche really was trying to help the world and even plots his own death. This ends the series off on a very good note and concludes any pervious questions very well.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • During Kallen and Suzaku's battle, they are questioning each other's motives and different methods, and how each thinks they are working for the good of Japan. If you pay attention, when Kallen and Suzaku first face off in the episode, the number "eleven" is on the wall, in between them---referring, of course, to Japan.

    • At the end of the series, CC is seen with a paper crane, which was a common theme throughout the series. It could represent the 1000th crane (which would make a wish come true).

    • At the end of the series, Kallen is living with her mother.

    • At the end of the series, Villetta and Ohgi are married, and Villetta is five months pregnant.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Lelouch: The punishment for what you've done shall be this, then. You will live on, always wearing that mask serving as a knight for justice and truth. You will no longer live your life as Suzaku Kururugi. You shall sacrifice the ordinary pleasures of your life for the benefit of the world. For eternity...
      Suzaku: This Geass, I do solemnly accept.

    • Kallen: Was that it? Was that what Lelouch and Suzaku had to do?

    • (Lelouch's final words - English dub)
      Lelouch: Yes... I... I destroyed the world... and created... anew.

    • Lelouch: To the whole world! I am Emperor of the Holy Empire of Britannia, Lelouch vi Britannia...Schneizel has kneeled before me. Now, Damocles and FLEIA are both under my control. The Black Knights do not possess the power to fight against me anymore. However, if they insist on rebelling, I shall have you know the power of FLEIA. There are no longer any obstacles to my hegemony. Today, as of this moment, the world is in my hands. Lelouch vi Britannia commands you...OBEY ME, WORLD!!

    • (Lelouch's final words)
      Lelouch: Yes...I..destroy...worlds...create...worlds...

    • (as the wounded Lelouch falls at her feet)Nunnally: It can't be...brother...you were...all along...(clutches Lelouch's hand) Brother, I love you!

    • (Flashback)

      Lelouch: Hey, Suzaku. Don't you think wishes are the same as Geass? Things that you can't accomplish with your own powers, you ask for the assistance of others.

      Suzaku: Wishes, eh?

      Lelouch: Yes. I shall gamble on the Geass known as people's wishes for the sake of the world's future.

    • (Flashback)

      Lelouch(offscreen):Suzaku, you shall kill me, as promised.

      (camera pans down)

      Suzaku(offscreen): Do you absolutely want to do this?

      Lelouch(offscreen): All the hatred in the world is gathered on me as planned.

      (Lelouch and Suzaku are shown facing each other)

      Lelouch: Then, all you have to do is erase my existence...and put an end to this chain of hatred.

      (Lelouch hands Suzaku Zero mask)

      Lelouch: The Black Knights will have the legend of Zero left behind for them. Schneizel will work for Zero. And now the world can be unified at one table, not through military force, but through negotiation and talk. It can now embrace the future.
