Two months after Lelouch Lamperouge is declared the Ruler of the World, Lelouch arranged for the public execution of the Black Knight Leaders and the U.F.N. Representatives. Before he could do so, however, Zero interrupted him and stabbed him in the stomach. The Zero who killed Lelouch was actually Kururugi Suzaku, and his final act was the culmination of Zero Requiem, just as they had planned. Lelouch gave Suzaku one final order: to disregard his old identity and play the role of Zero for the rest of his life. Thus, a new world was created.
So pretty! And such a sad ending. Perhaps I need to find the DVDs for this anime very soon. Thanks to Garcia for sending this!
