Even Euphie managed to figure it out. Pretty much all the Emperor's kids are against him anyway, just some more than others.>>12339046
No, a checkmate is when the king is still in check at the beginning of the opponent's turn. When the king is in check and there's no way to get your king OUT of check before your enemy's next turn, it's a checkmate.>>12339652
No, it just means Lelouch is a faggot determined to FIGHT THE POWAH at any cost. He doesn't want to win, he wants to go against his enemies at any cost. Hell, the Emperor could probably go on national TV and say "Oh I sure hope Zero doesn't surrender and then chomp on a suicide pill, that would ruin all my plans!" and Lulu would probably do just that. Problem solved.>>12339758
