When I was in high school I used to watch only a little bit of anime. Actually I wasn’t really into anime like I am today, to me it was just a show. At the time I wasn’t really paying attention to the story at all because I just watched random episodes that happened to be on Adult Swim. Later on when I got more into anime that’s when I watched all the episodes from both seasons.
Here’s a quick summary of the main story:
“The series is set after Japan’s conquest by the Holy Britannian Empire on August 10, 2010, a.t.b. with their powerful new robot weapons, the Knightmare Frames, stripping Japan and its citizens of all rights and freedoms and renaming the country Area 11. The titular Lelouch is a Britannian prince who was disowned by his father, Emperor Charles Vi Britannia, after his mother was murdered, and has vowed to kill his father, the Emperor, and destroy Britannia. He gains an ability through the mysterious power of the Geass, becoming the leader of the resistance movement to fulfill his two wishes: to seek revenge for his mother and to construct a world in which his beloved sister Nunnally can live happily.” (From Wikipedia, because if I wrote the summary from memory I would be forgetting general details)
It was the first anime that I watched that had a deep story that made me think about how it relates to real life. It was cool how Lelouch is able to devise and counter most obstacles that was in his way, especially how it ends at the final episode. The cast of characters is good, ranging from average school girls to military and class based people. The most of the main characters of Ashford Academy each play a role in the main story; Lelouch, Suzaku, Nunnally, Nina, and Kallen.
I heard about rumored new 2010 Code Geass project that may or may not be true. It may be based on the early history of the Code Geass world set in the Edo period. More details if this information is confirmed to be true. Here is a link to ANN about this news.
Its been a while since I’ve watched it so I can’t say too much about it. I think its best if you watch it and judge it yourself.
