Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

MBS 2006

On August 10th, 2010 the Holy Empire of Britannia began a campaign of conquest, its sights set on Japan. Deploying a humanoid weapon dubbed Knightmare Frame, Japan was quickly conquered, its rights and identity stripped away, the once proud nation now referred to as Area 11. Its citizens, Elevens, now forced to scratch out a living while the Brits live comfortably within their settlements. Pockets of resistance appear throughout Area 11, working towards independence for Japan, although without much success. However, the world's destiny changes as Lelouch, an exiled Imperial Prince of Britannia posing as a student, finds himself in the heart of the ongoing conflict. Through a chance meeting with a mysterious girl named C.C., Lelouch gains a mysterious power called Geass. Equipped with the power of the king, Lelouch may finally realize his dream of bringing Britannia down to its knees!

I don't like the mechas and I hate pink/green/purple/blue-haired people. I don't even watch too much anime. But this one... I LOVED IT. It was brilliant, and got me hooked from start to end. I watched it all in four days.

An anime that's an alternative for Death Note

avatar

A good first season but the second one is just about characters failing to express themselves and switching allegiances.

avatar

Greatest anime of all time. Even better than Death Note. Code Geass delivered where Death Note failed. Oh! And that ending is the greatest. OMG! THE GREATEST ENDING OF ALL TIME. No show will ever have such COMPLETE and SATISFYING End. To the makers of this anime, THANK YOU.

Longest Pizza Hut ad ever.

Don’t get turned off by the first few episodes, Code Geass is VERY entertaining with GOD-TIER cliffhangers! It also has amazing characters.

avatar

i'm too old for that. 設定其實還是中二得很;政治上的「血腥」「殘酷」其實也很溫室、很家家酒——動畫始終是一種比電影更逃避、更容易陷入自我肯定的媒介。

avatar

first for those who haven't watched it yet : yes its must must watch now if u have or havent watched death note than believe me death not is winner here yes this show is nice but death note is king of all the anime just watch both the anime no one in the world will say i didnt like it nd yes give code geass time to built the story its kinda boring for 10 minutes than u will get hooked up
