Review: Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion


Plot Summary: 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 girl, 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.


Britannia has taken over 1/3 of the Globe and only the Chinese Colony and the European Union remain is global powers, but none can much with the strength of the Britannians. There moto is simple, the strong will live and the weak will die. Lelouch has fallen victim to this motto and he lives only for his sister, they were usage as hostages in Japan and when Britannia invaded they were thought to be dead. Lelouch takes his place to get revenge against the Britannian Empire he gets the power of the Geass when accidentally meeting CC. With this power nobody can resist an order from Lelouch. This anime picks up at a very fast pace with it getting better from episode to episode, there wasn’t a single moment where you weren’t wondering how Zero was going to pull this one off, or how he was going to defeat his enemies. He sold his sole to the devil to defeat the Britannian Empire, but what is the real cost of it all. You get pulled into this show not wanting to stop, it has a lot of mechas in it but its more about the delicate relationships rather then the robots. An excellent story line with high quality animation which can be enjoyed by any person that even remotely likes anime.

    This has been a very good experience, i just finished season 2 and man oh man, the emotion is too strong to describe. i loved it but at the same time it was so unfair….

  9. This is a very nice twist! Its fast paced AND profound. I love it up to now, hooked from the begining. I’m convinced this will be good all the way. This is a well thought anime. With very good psychology and no nonesense … no useless scenes. A bit confusing but the confusion adds to the interest in the begining. Thank you very much authors!
