Here’s an update from ANN. According to the official statement released on the official website, the video leak is caused by human error or should I say, more of a technical complication. Bandai Channel, the network responsible for online distribution of the entire show, was testing for a new system that was supposed to prevent unauthorized video post of the show but instead accidentally uploaded the video of the last 6 minutes of episode 3 onto the internet. Despite the error caused, the episode 3 will be aired as usual at its usual time slot on Sunday.
“I don’t know what the button is for but it sure will do something.”
I’m glad that there won’t be any immediate changes to the show for now though after watching the video leak, it’s pretty much that I know the shockers of the next episode. Even so, that does not mean that there won’t be any changes of the future plot of the story. That will remain disclosed for now.
Despite of what the official announcement stated, I still do believe that the culprit responsible for this is none other than Zero. After what would happen in the last 6 minutes of episode 3, I bet Lelouch commanded the staff to leak the video so that the plot can be changed and his arse is saved. But then again, there’s the Emperor of Britannia need to worry about.
