Storyline

The Empire of Britannia has invaded Japan using giant robot weapons called Knightmare Frames. Japan is now referred to as Area 11, and its people the 11's. A Britannian who was living in Japan at the time, Lelouch, vowed to his Japanese friend Suzaku that he'd destroy Britannia. Years later, Lelouch is in high school, but regularly skips out of school to go play chess and gamble on himself. One day, he stumbles on terrorists 11's who've stolen a military secret and is caught by a member of the Britannian task force sent after them, who is Suzaku. As the rest of the squad arrives, Suzaku is shot for disobeying orders, while the military secret, a young immortal witch, gives Lelouch the power of Geass, which makes anyone obey any order. While Suzaku is secretly made the pilot of Britannia's brand new prototype Knightmare, Lancelot, Lelouch becomes the masked Zero to lead the rebellion to destroy Britannia once and for all.

Trivia

Sunrise was one of the co-animators who provided animation for Batman: The Animated Series (1992), along with TMS Entertainment and Spectrum Animation. One could argue that Lelouch's costume for Zero evokes Batman's suit. See more »

Lloyd: [works at computer] Unique! What a delightfully awful way to put it.
Milly: I'm surprised you're interested in a girl from the downgraded Ashford family after it lost its rank.
Lloyd: [turns to Milly] Oho! But I couldn't care less about loss of rank.

User Reviews

Brilliant!
1 September 2018 | by XXIVPSee all my reviews

Quite frankly, Code Geass may very well be (in my opinion) the greatest anime to date. It's exceptional storytelling, theme-plot structure, voice acting, action, art style, and... robots, always for good measure. The main protagonist, Lelouch, vascillates between the great hero and anti-hero roles with ease (particularly in R2), playing on both Western and Eastern structure of a cartoon hero. The mechs, Knightmare Frames, are essentially below-atmosphere Gundams minus the incredible agility - so if the robots are your thing, you might not lose too much interest - though they're design, specifically the more advanced models, are much better. The power of Geass is the most enticing aspect of the fictional aspects, the highlight of the story aside from Lelouch's journey. I'd definitely recommend.
