Changes From The Original

  • In the beginning Lelouch and Nunnally as children are shown bidding farewell to their siblings before they head off into exile.
  • There is no Kallen shower scene where Lelouch deceives her into believing he is not Zero. Instead there is a scene where Kallen is on the phone with Ohgi and she says she no longer suspects Lelouch because he has a crippled sister whom he takes care for, so he cannot have time to be Zero.
  • Suzaku’s first encounter with Euphemia and Arthur goes differently.
  • The one who shot Villetta Nu in the movie was Diethard Ried instead of Shirley Fenette.
