The Fans Want Lelouch Alive

Even though it is Sunrise and all, it IS possible for them to kill off a character….. But the fans sure don’t seem to be thinking that. Everywhere I look there are people claiming not only did he somehow survive, but he could very well be the covered from head to toe guy(NOT REAL btw) driving C.C. around at the end. This idea seems to have an origin thanks to C.C.’s last line “The Power of Kings, called Geass, will make people lonely. I suppose that wasn’t quite true.” then she lifts her head slightly and raises her voice asking, “Right, Lelouch?”  But couldn’t she just be talking to the sky/heaven(if he could really go there?)or maybe the World of C? (My vote goes to her talking to the pink crane).

Common claims I’ve seen saying he could have survived usually reference him somehow gaining Charles’s code. Thus giving him Immortality. The problem I see with this theory is that from what we have seen the code replaces the Geass. So when C.C. got her code she no longer had the Geass to make everyone love her. Lelouch on the other hand erased Charles from existence while in the World of C. And used his Geass a LOT after returning. We also never saw Lelouch with the code.

It also can’t be C.C.’s code because in taking the code you kill. And since she is still VERY much alive that is not a possibility.

There is also the fact that Nunnally has “magic hands” that at the VERY least are able to read someone’s pulse well enough to work as a lie detector. I would think that they would work well enough to tell her if her brother had just died or not. The best argument I’ve seen so far though for him having a code is in fact this same scene. Much like in the first ep of season1 when he touches C.C. and can see her memories this event could be paralleled with what happened with Nunnally as we see him die.

Then again, we don’t really know much of the specifics on when they die how the code brings them back. The first time C.C. died (ep1ofS1) she didn’t just stand right back up, but every other time someone with the code gets killed they just stand back up within a minute. Like when Charles died he just stood right back up.

Personally I ride with the he’s dead and never coming back train. I think his sacrifice was epic and well done, and to say that he went into that with immortality. It just ruins it and you might as well say that he and Suzaku trade places as Zero after having hours of gay sex every day.

PS.  As I was wrapping this up, I found some pretty good posts. So if your up to go even deeper into the meaning of the ending check out this post. It’s a response to another pretty good post but I prefer that one since it sounds like he’s on the same train. A good post for the HE IS alive fight can be found here.

    You have a flaw in your post.

    Lelouch takes charles’s code but has C.C.’s geass thus he can retain both.
    only by taking c.c.’s code would his geass be null.

    so lulu lives.

    No, Lulu is dead

    why don’t you read the magazines that all came out in Japan all
    assuming/knowing? he is dead?

    It’s ambiguous on purpose. there really isn’t a right or wrong answer on this one. Also you may recall that a lot of those magazines and websites said things like Nunnally was 100% dead, that the Knight of One’s stitched up eye was just a battle scar, and so on. Unless Sunrise or someone on the staff says something, I don’t think we’ll ever have a real answer.

    But, random, your saying my post is flawed for not mentioning that Lelouch took Charles’s code. There is ABSOLUTELY NO evidence whatsoever that he got the code, or that you can get a code and keep the geass. Until you can show me proof that these things can and DID happen don’t go calling something flawed.

    ^_^ now lets all go watch the new season and have some fun. I’ll hopefully have that post out before the weekend is over.

    It seems that…No one really GOT the very trick of the of the show…
    Also, the creator…will never ever tell the truth!

    …I don’t believe those official stuff

    It’s not about how good or evil he had done , it’s about GEASS and its tricks!

    Did anyone got an idea that Lelouch also casts his Geass to us?…ordering only to view his death!? …didn’t you all noticed that he already using his
    Geass in the very beginning whenever you watched the opening song?

    That is the reason why they made the concept of the story!

    He made us believed that he truly died because of his GEASS!

    For me, I really believed that he got Charles code because it’s too obvious! and it was located right on his neck!

    Also, I never saw any right answer of what is the real name of C.C., it’s practically common sense, her real name is “CODE GEASS”…Lelouch: Kodo gias on episode 11

    And, people have no choice but to admit that he’s alive or else, they themselves proved that they have been played by his Geass tricks…

    Personally, from all the evidence it seems pretty clear that the open ended ending was to allow us to make our own beliefs. Lelouch lived due to a magnitude of reasons, but the main thing is he acquired Charles’ code.
