Lelouch Vi Brittania commands you...

Everyone who watched Code Geass heard this phrase, in both the dubbed version and original Japanese version.

My question is: Why, in the original Japanese version of Code Geass, does Lelouch speak in English when he uses his Geass?

    Uh, I'm pretty sure that Lelouch never says "Lelouch vi Brittania commands you" in English in the Japanese version. His typical line when issuing a geass is 「ルルーシュ・ヴィ・ブリタニアが命じる」 Lelouch vi Brittania ga meijiru (which does mean "Lelouch vi Brittania commands you").

    I don't see why this question should receive so many downvotes. ga meijiru does sound like commands you spoken in a Japanese accent.

Your question is why does he speak English in the Japanese version? Well, he does not.

The key sentence he says is

Lelouch Vi Britannia ga meijiru: senshin's comment states it's "ga" and not "ha"

Which means "Lelouch Vi Britannia commands you", in Japanese.


He's Britannian thats why he speaks in english and i think coz its more catchy to use the english version . just an opinion.
