Take this and forever be mah slave!
SuzaLulu owns part of my soul. But for a time, it completely owned it and that was during Lulu’s whole death scene in the last episode. Oups, did I need spoiler tags for that? Not that I think someone doesn’t know about all this already.
This is probably my most favorite scene of the entire series. It’s sad, considering how much I love Lulu, that my favorite scene is actually his death. Well, that is, if he actually really died. Not that it matters, but I’m one of those who believes that Lulu’s still alive.
Anwyays, that’s not the point of this post. Moving on, so why exactly do I love this scene so much?
It’s because I giggled during the whole five minutes this scene lasted. For me, this is the defining moment of the SuzaLulu. The moment I confirmed in my mind that these two really do love each other. Oh cheesy, I know. But that’s just how I am. I couldn’t help but think that.
And why? Because the second Suzaku killed Lulu. Lulu bound Suzaku to him for eternity. I love looking at the second meanings of Lulu’s and Suzaku’s words during this scene and just by interpreting it differently, it sounds like a confession to me.
Like when Lulu said “This is punishment for you too,” Those were like the sealing words. It was like saying “You’ve killed me. But I killed you as well.” They killed each other. They atoned each others sins. And Lulu, even though he’s dead, managed to make Suzaku obey him until his death. They’re bound to each other. Completely. And the thought makes me giggle.
Suzaku’s an asshole. Lulu’s an asshole. I loved Lulu even though he was an asshole but I hated Suzaku despite his being voiced by my prince Sakurai Takahiro. I said, while I was still blogging this, that I wouldn’t forgive Suzaku unless he died. Suzaku, technically, didn’t die but this is a better equivalent. Suzaku’s dead. He’s Zero now. He’s a symbol. He’s not even a person. Not even human.
And who thought that up? Lulu did. (Shush, it’s the producers and writers I know. But leave me alone with my dream!) And I love Lulu for that. SuzaLulu’s like an epic train-wrecked Romeo and Juliet to me except Suzaku isn’t so fickle- no wait, never mind he is. Lulu just isn’t as pathetic as Juliet.
Code Geass was crack. It was an epic train-wreck with a bunch of symbolism to try and cover it up and I absolutely loved that. Code Geass had possibly everything I could ever love in the anime world and it’s highlight for me was Suzaku and Lulu despite all the crap. If I had to do my top ten pairings, they’d be in it somewhere near the top. Oh wait, crap, how did I end up talking about SuzaLulu and not the scene itself? Erm. Whatever, the scene to me was completely SuzaLulu.
Lulu’s a strong character to have taken so much on his shoulders. Suzaku was an asshole because he said he’d atone for his sins but never found a way how. One’s Pinky, the other’s the Brain. They’re like shoes and shoelaces and wow, I’ve sunk so low to use such crappy comparisons. What the hell was I talking about anyway? Forgive my crappiness.
I think I’ve said enough. This is scene I won’t forget because I am fangirl and this scene englobed my image of a perfect tragic ending for two lovers. I won’t deny it. I like tragedy. I like angst. But, only when it’s done well. And, to me, this was well-done. I would’ve cried if I wasn’t giggling so much. And laughing. It was all so corny somehow. Somehow. But not really. Just a little bit. Ah crap, I’m getting off the point.
I’ll end this before it gets any worst. A bunch of other stuff happened during the last episode of Geass. A real lot of stuff actually. But this is the scene that I won’t forget ever ever ever. It’s going to be like how I won’t forget Syaoran flashing his moves with his swords instead of rushing to save Sakura from being sucked in the magic tree in CCS episode something or other.
All hail Lelouch, indeed.
