Code Geass 2 Summary
Hangyaku no Lelouch 2 - Kakusei no Shiroki Kishi - 日本独立計画
On August 10th of the year 2010 of the Common Era, the Holy Empire of Britanni invaded Japan. In the face of Britannia's new weapons, the Knightmare Frames, the Japanese defenses crumbled, and its citizens lost their freedom, their rights, and their pride. Even their names were taken. Eleven: that cold designation was the new name given to the Japanese.
While wondering what he should do with his newfound power, a Knightmare sees him inside the warehouse. Thinking quickly, Lelouch tricks the Knightmare's devicer (pilot) into getting out, and then Lelouch uses his Geass to force her into giving him her Knightmare. It's then that Private First Class of the Britannian Military, Suzaku Kururugi, wakes up in a FMS (Field Medic Station), and a silver-haired man offers him the chance to become a devicer for a unique Knightmare Frame: The Lancelot.
This is when Lelouch becomes a terrorist. He does so by assisting the red-haired terrorist, Kallen Kouzuki, in escaping a Britannian pursuit. He then provides all the terrorists with the newest form of mass-produced Knightmares, Sutherlands. From there, using his stolen Sutherland's
IFF Indicator, he begins locating the Britannian Knightmares, ordering the terrorists to create
ambushes for the Britannians. Eventually, when the Britannian Viceroy in charge of Area 11, Clovis de Britannia, orders all units to surround the terrorists, Lelouch uses an ingenious trick to become nearly victorious, until Suzaku, in the new Seventh Generation Knightmare Frame, dubbed Lancelot, begins systematically obliterating the terrorist forces.
Soon, Suzaku finds Lelouch's Knightmare, and continuously attempts to kill him, until Kallen distracts him long enough for Lelouch to begin to retreat, saying "This makes us even!" Within
minutes of Suzaku starting the chase after Lelouch, he is forced to stop and save a falling woman,
and her child, thus allowing Lelouch to escape.
Later, Lelouch slips into Prince Clovis' compound, and forces him to order all units to
fall back. He then reveals, quite dramatically, that he is Clovis' brother. Finally, to
conclude the episode, Lelouch says "I have returned, my prince, to change everything!"
