I never liked Shirley, and this was pretty much the most retarded death scene in the anime. Oh no, Lelouche lost a member of his harem that had been on the backburner for an entire season. And it wasn't even his fault, it was just done suddenly by a random fuck minor character.
But it's still going to be played up as some big tragedy. Bring back the writers that came up with the Euphy massacre?
