Did he really succeed in the end?
WELL THEN GET OUT OF THE SOUP ISLE
Reminder to the alivefags that Miraculous Birthday is a thing and theres nothing you can do about it.
Hes dead. Just accept it.
You'd have a point if there wasn't another similar ghost in Code Geass canon.
Nah,the next generation will not have seen Lelouch actions. The killing and warring will start in like 30-50 years.
He literally blew the only chance for world peace and killed himself,what a faggot
Yes. He's paying the ultimate punishment (and best way to atone for his sins), by living on with the burden of having to keep the Zero Requiem a secret and never returning to his previous life as Lelouch (just as Suzaku swore to keep on serving as Zero, instead of taking the easy way out and dying).
Also, Zero Requiem ontop of all the commonly discussed reasons was the perfect way for Lelouch to redeem himself for Euphie. He's responsible not only for her death but for tainting her reputation and having the world remember her as a demon. Zero Requiem was Lelouch's way of experiencing what it was like to be hated by everyone, and dying seen as a demon. And in the end he achieved what Euphie wanted and even more.
Also he can now fulfill CC's wish. Originally Lelouch didn't know what CC's wish was. Later CC revealed she wanted her life to end, but Lelouch convinced her otherwise and saved her from Charles by telling her she should only die with a smile on her face. This made her realize that the love she's been looking for all her life is Lelouch; the only person to ever see her as a human being and care about her. So her new wish became to "stop accumulating experiences and start living". Living with Lelouch, of course.
So yeah, Lelouch succeeded pretty fucking hard in the end by redeeming himself in multiple ways as well as carrying out the dreams of many others who may or may not have suffered or died due to him. He also must atone for his sins by never going back to his former life, and having to live in secrecy.
Lelouch wasn't turned into a newt you dingus
Not that anon but i prefer to believe he's alive, or in the very least his spirit or whatever can still communicate with CC, because if i recall correctly he promised to be with CC forever or something along those lines, and i don't think he'd break that promise
That "I want a tomorrow" wish he made to god and inheriting Charles's code are both convincing enough to make his survival reasonable.
What about the end where Nunnally sees all the past shit when she touches him like what happens when people touch CC? Before that, whenever people touched him, nothing happened, so it isn't just because of his geass
You seem to be confusing real life with anime. True multiculturalism requires cultures to maintain uniqueness and to interact. What we get from from leftist is as you describe, but what more would you expect from actual retards?
In theory, the way to obtain the code from someone is killing that person and being a Geass user.
We just don't know what would happen in Charles's case because he just vanished, we don't know if a code can be destroyed or if it keeps being passed on regardless.
In the case of it being passed on, the only one who could have received it would be Lelouch because he was the only geass user in the scene and he was the one who indirectly Killed Charles.
At the end we just keep grasping at straws with no definite answer because Lelouch being dead makes the ending too fucking bittersweet
I think its quite simple honestly. Lelouch gave to Susaku his Geass and make a contract with him,which I think it that Lelouch's wish was to keep in peace the world as "Zero". In this way, he will become immortal and Suzaku will have the Geass
Actually it would probably be on his throat. I feel it would be fitting since the throat is symbolic for lying, and it's the last contact charles had with lelouch physically.
Either way though the show not specifying the details regarding to where the code shows isn't proof that he doesn't have the code.
I refuse to believe that the creators of the show, who were well capable of crafting a very fine and detailed story, accidentally were careful enough to go about the show in a way that allowed multiple interpretations of the ending.
People may cite the interview where Okouchi "confirmed" Lelouch is dead, but he ended up giving a long answer about the end of Lelouch of the Rebellion. The interviewer was just asking for a simple yes or no, but Okouchi went about giving a meaningful and metaphoric answer. I think it's clear that if the creators actually didn't mean to have different possible endings, that they woulda straight out just said "he's dead". After all, in the same interview Taniguchi said that you can interpret the ending how you like, and that he sees it as a happy ending.
I think Lelouch dying and being immortal are both fine endings, but I feel the latter is far more fitting. This goes back to Lelouch establishing within the show that dying is in ways an "easy way out", and that living on with a burden is possibly a better way to atone for sins (this is what he had Suzaku do, who also agreed). Also if he is truly dead, then why was CC fighting for Lelouch at the end? Why did she say "it's time to stop accumulating experiences and stop living"? Why did Lelouch keep affirming he would fulfill her contract, and why would CC want Lelouch to just die like that, the only person who ever loved her as a fellow human being? If she wanted him to die, then what was the contract she wanted to be fulfilled?
In the end though I just love the ambition of the creators and how the end was handled, and can be interpreted differently.
