    Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
    コードギアス: 反逆のルルーシュの


    Code Geass in my opinon is probably one of the best animes I have ever seen. The first season of the series premiered across Japan on October 5, 2006, and concluded its run on July 28, 2007, after running for 25 episodes. A second season and sequel to the series, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2, premiered on MBS April 6, 2008 and concluded on September 28, 2008. (The Last Episode Rocked, BTW). ​

    Introduction

    On August 10, 2010, a.t.b. (the Imperial calendar, roughly 1955 A.D.), the Holy Empire of Britannia overpowered Japanese forces and conquered the country with their new robotic weapons, the Knightmare Frames, in less than a month. In the aftermath of Britannia's invasion, Japan lost its freedom, its rights, and even its name, becoming Area 11 of the Britannian Empire. The Japanese people, renamed as "Elevens", are forced to survive in poor neighborhoods, while Britannians live in first-class settlements. Rebel elements persist, however, as pockets of Japanese organizations struggle against the Empire for the independence of Japan.

    After his father, the Emperor of Britannia, failed to prevent the assassination of his mother, an attack which also left his sister blind and crippled, the young prince Lelouch vowed to destroy Britannia. He was then banished by his Father, Charles zi Britannia to Area 11 (Japan). Seven years later, he accidentally becomes mixed up with "terrorists" in Area 11 and encounters a mysterious girl named C.C., who gives him the power of Geass. With it, he finally has the power that he needs to defeat Britannia and fulfill his two wishes: to seek revenge for his mother and to construct a world in which his beloved sister Nunnally can live happily.

    Introduction of Geass

    [​IMG]

    Geass (ギアス) is a mysterious ability which certain people can bestow upon others; C.C. is the most prominent character who grants the power of Geass. The form the Geass takes is different in each individual, each with different abilities and limitations. C.C. calls Geass the Power of Kings. Lelouches Geass is that he can command one to behave as he wishes just within eye contact. Geass is also represented by a bird-shaped symbol which glows red when active.

    Every Geass has its own unique set of restrictions, limitations, or idiosyncrasies. These factors allow a Geass to be defeated, or its power limited, by someone who is aware of its characteristics. All Geass abilities that have thus far appeared within the canon of the television series have been related to the mind, influencing such aspects as will, thought, memory, emotion, and perception.

    The power of Geass increases with use, usually starting in one eye. It can eventually spread to both eyes and become uncontrollable with repeated use. At this point, the one who granted the power can relinquish his or her immortality to the recipient, allowing the recipient to continue the cycle while the giver is allowed to die. The immortality is referred to as the giver's "Code," and grants the person immunity to Geass in exchange for their original power.

    Introduction the World of Code Geass

    Code Geass is set in an alternate universe where the Holy Empire of Britannia, an international superpower, has conquered more than a third of the planet. The world is, for the most part, divided between it and two other superpowers: the Chinese Federation and the Euro Universe.

    [​IMG]

    Holy Empire of Britannia
    The Holy Empire of Britannia (神聖ブリタニア帝国) is an imperial monarchy and the most prominent superpower within the world of Code Geass, controlling over one-third of the world at the start of the series, which expands as the series progresses. Its homeland is based in North America, and its imperial city is Pendragon. Britannian society is elitist and is run based on a caricature of Social Darwinism. Society is arranged by ranks of nobility.

    During season 1, the Britannian Empire controls the entire Western Hemisphere (both American continents), New Zealand, recently conquered Japan. Early in season 1, Britannia conquers "Area 18", a desert region that is a part of the Middle East. During season 2, Britannia successfully conquers about half of the rival "Euro Universe" superpower; taking over France, Spain, the western half of Africa, and Russia. Ironically, Britannia does not control the British Isles...

    Territories conquered by the Britannian Empire are renamed with an "Area" number based on when they were conquered and the native people are referred to by their area number or just called "Numbers"; Japan, being the eleventh territory conquered, is Area 11 and its people are "Elevens", for example. The Numbers are denied many of the rights of Britannian citizens, and are usually left to live in poverty. They can apply for Honorary Britannian citizenship to earn basic rights, but cannot attain the same status as regular citizens.

    Area 11 (Japan)
    Japan, renamed as Area 11 under Britannian rule, is the source of over 70% of the world's total supply of sakuradite, a fictional mineral with a high energy content. Japan oppressed and dominated other countries through economic control of the mineral prior to the start of the series, leading to its invasion and eventual takeover by Britannia. Japan serves as the main setting for much of the series, as it is where Ashford Academy, Lelouch's school, is located. Under his alter-ego of Zero, Lelouch attempts to reform it as an independent nation, the "United States of Japan", as part of his quest to overthrow Britannia.

    Ashford Academy
    Located: Area 11
    Ashford Academy (アッシュフォード学園) is a Britannian private academy in Tokyo, owned and operated by the Ashford Foundation (アッシュフォード財団), a philanthropic organization involved predominantly in the supply of educational services, founded by the formerly noble Ashford House. It is attended by Lelouch and Nunnally, who, owing to their mother's past relationship with the Ashfords, have been granted free residence within the campus's Student Government Clubhouse.

    Chinese Federation
    The Chinese Federation (中華連邦) is an imperial monarchy that spans the Asian and Pacific regions, including Central, South, East and Southeast Asia with Sakhalin and the Korean Peninsula. Its population is the largest of the three major powers, but most live in poverty. Its political structure and organization appears to resemble the real-world Empire of China. The Emperor of the Federation holds absolute political power, but under Empress Tianzi, it is reduced to an effectively symbolic figurehead posting, "a symbol of the state and the unity of the people." As with the real-world Emperor of Japan, the individual who holds the title is regarded as a living divinity whose sovereignty is entirely ceremonial. The Vermilion Forbidden City (朱禁城) is the seat of the Chinese Emperor and the government of the Federation — a large palace situated in the capital city of Luoyang. The governmental organization known as the "High Eunuchs" (大宦官), advisers to the Empress, use her power for their own gain.

    The Euro Universe (EU)
    The Euro Universe (ユーロ・ユニバース), or E.U., is a democratic union. It has long been in conflict with Britannia. It encompasses all of Europe (including the British Isles), Africa, and Russia. Unlike the other countries, focus on the E.U. is minimal. In the second season, Schneizel leads the Britannian forces against the E.U., successfully conquering almost half of their territory. Territories which fell to Britannia include Portugal, Spain, France, half of Africa and all of Russia. Following this, former E.U. nations Italy and Poland were two of the forty-seven nations to join Zero's United Federation of Nations. The only nations remaining as part of the E.U. are the British Isles, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Ukraine and an area of Africa near the Congo. Due to the significant decrease in the E.U.'s territory and power, Charles di Britannia no longer considers the E.U. a threat.

    United Federation of Nations [Code Geass R2]

    Following the collapse of the E.U. and the uprising in the Chinese Federation, most of the remaining territories not under Britannian control join forces and form the United Federation of Nations, a new coalition to counter the Empire's advance. The U.F.N. flag is a white dove with three circles merging at the point where the wings and body meet, with a yellow background. Their combined territories literally split the world between the Empire and the Federation.

    The U.F.N. is composed of forty-seven countries spread across parts of Eastern Europe, Eastern Africa, and the majority of the Asian continent. Decisions in the U.F.N. are determined by a two-thirds majority vote by the leaders of each country, with the population of each country determining their voting percentage. The individual armies of the member nations are abolished and replaced by a new supranational military force under the Black Knights' control.


    Introduction of Knightmares

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Knightmare Frames ('Knightmare' is a play on "nightmare" and a knight's mare, referring to the weapon itself; frame is the civilian word for bipedal machines in general) are robotic combat machines intended as a replacement for main battle tanks and other conventional land warfare vehicles. The bulk of Knightmare Frame models are produced by the Britannian Empire, who pioneered the design. As the series progresses, Japan, India, and other countries develop their own Knightmare Frames to match Britannia's advantage.

    Introduction of the Order of the Black Knights

    [​IMG]
    Emblem of The Order of the Black Knights

    The Order of the Black Knights, or more commonly referred to as, The Black Knights. is a group of revolutionaries created by Zero, Lelouch's alter-ego, in his campaign to overthrow Britannia. Zero and the black knight's become a major resistance and threat to Britannia as the group grows larger and gets Knightmares of there own from India and the Kyoto organization. Zero also introduces the group as the protectors of the weak and as "Knights" they shall do there duty in doing so. Under Zero's leadership, the Black Knights grow in strength exponentially, becoming a force rivaling the Britannian army.

    Manga

    Kadokawa Shoten has published four manga adaptations of Code Geass, each containing alternate storylines. The first, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, by Majiko~!, focused on the protagonist of the series, Lelouch Lamperouge. It was originally serialized Monthly Asuka, starting in October 2006. Interestingly, the manga has started to branch off from the anime, beginning to do so during it's equivalent of the second season.

    The second, Code Geass: Suzaku of the Counterattack (コードギアス 反攻のスザク), serialized in Beans A magazine, focused on Suzaku Kururugi. Written by Atsuro Yomino, it is set in an alternate reality where Knightmare Frames do not exist. Wearing a human-sized enhancement suit provided by Lloyd to greatly boost his physical ability, Suzaku takes on the identity of Lancelot, a masked government-sponsored crime fighter and superhero. Opposed is the criminal organization known as the Black Knights.

    Code Geass: Nightmare of Nunnally (コードギアス ナイトメア・オブ・ナナリー), focused on Lelouch's sister Nunnally Lamperouge, was serialized in Comp Ace and written by Tomomasa Takuma. When Lelouch goes missing in the incident at Shinjuku Ghetto, Nunnally encounters an entity called Nemo, which restores her health and grants her the ability to summon the Knightmare Frame Mark Nemo. Using these, Nunnally attempts to seek out the whereabouts of her brother. However, her actions rouse the interest of the elite covert-ops Britannian Special Foreign Legion "Irregulars," which seeks to capture or kill her.

    The most recent manga adaptation, Code Geass: Tales of an Alternate Shogunate ( 幕末異聞録 コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ) was serialized in Kerokero Ace. It is set in an alternate history in 1853 with new characters. Britannia's Black Ships appear in the harbor of Uraga. Some years later, Lelouch Lamperouge (琉々朱・爛縁侍) — brother to a young blind girl named Nunnally (那奈離) — is the commander of the military counterinsurgence brigade known as the Shinsengumi, formed under the orders of the Shogunate to fight the Black Revolutionaries (黒の維新団), a rebel group led by a mysterious masked individual known as Rei (零). In fact, these two organizations are one and the same, and they seek to combat in influences of Britannia. Geass is the ability to call upon and summon the armored entities referred to as Knightmares (騎士銘亜); Lancelot (蘭須露斗, ) is one such Knightmare.

    Product Placement


    Code Geass is probably the 1st anime I have ever seen with product placement:
    Code Geass is sponsored by a number of companies in Japan, and hence their logos and mascots make inside the anime. The logo of the Japanese internet service provider BIGLOBE appears in the background of news programs and web searches.

    Pizza Hut references are more prominent, since C.C. orders from them constantly (its on the pizza box) and carries around a stuffed toy of the Japanese branch's mascot, Cheese-kun (チーズくん). Pizza Hut's logo is edited out in the international release.

    Main Characters

    [​IMG]
    Lelouch vi Britannia (ルルーシュ・ヴィ・ブリタニア)
    The Eleventh Prince of the Britannia Imperial Family and seventeenth in line for the throne.
    Aliases: Lelouch Lamperouge, Zero, Black Prince, King of Elevens, Man of Miracles
    Allegiance: Order of the Black Knights, The Holy Britannian Empire, The United Federation of Nations
    Age: 17 (first season) 18 (second season)

    Lelouch's Childhood
    Lelouch is the son of the Emperor of Britannia, Charles di Britannia, and the late Imperial Consort Marianne (5th Empresses of Britannia), making Lelouch the eleventh prince of the Britannian Imperial Family. He was seventeenth in line for the throne prior to his mother's assassination and his sister's crippling in the same incident. A ten year old Lelouch confronted the Emperor afterward and accused him of leaving his mother defenseless, even going as far as renouncing his entitlement to the throne. In response, his father banished him to Japan, where he was used as a political hostage in the Sakuradite conflict.

    [​IMG]
    Lelouch as a child, when he was a prince of Britannia

    It was during his stay at the Kururugi household that he first met Suzaku Kururugi, with whom the young Lelouch did not interact initially in a friendly manner, before later becoming friends. However, when Britannia finally developed its Knightmare Frames fleet and decided to invade Japan to seize control of the Sakuradite mines, consequently discarding Lelouch's use as a diplomatic tool, Lelouch, fearing for his and his sister's safety, hid their true identities and sought the help of the Ashford family, who were his mother's allies.

    [​IMG]
    Lelouch as Zero

    The Rise of Zero
    Shortly after gaining the power of Geass from C.C., Lelouch assumes the secret identity Zero (ゼロ), a mysterious, masked revolutionary dressed in a black helmet and cloak. The helmet has a retractable plate over the left eye so Lelouch can use his Geass. In this guise, he forms the Order of the Black Knights, initially composed of the members of Kaname Ohgi's resistance group. The goal of this vigilante group is a campaign against powerful individuals who oppress the helpless, which he eventually expands into reforming Japan as an independent nation.

    Lelouch is willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish his goal, even if it means lying to his followers and using people as bait for the outcome he desires. However, he has trouble putting those he is close to in harms way for the sake of his goal, which is a weakness as a commander but a remnant of his humanity and sanity. His feelings for Nunnally in particular often hinders his plans, particularly at the end of the first season, where he abandons a massive war with Britannian forces to rescue her. Gradually, however, he has come to embrace the fact that he has to destroy before reconstruction can occur, even if it means harming those he cares about.

    Lelouch's Geass
    Lelouch's Geass, given to him by C.C., grants him "the power of absolute obedience," allowing him to plant commands within a person's mind upon eye contact which they will obey without question. Activation of his Geass is visually represented by the manifestation of a Geass sigil in his left eye. Commands dictated in this state are written into the minds of the designated targets once the sigil projects from his eye to theirs.

    Suzaku at Age 10
    Suzaku's Childhood
    Suzaku is the son of Japan's last prime minister, Genbu Kururugi. His existence was kept a secret from the public until after the war. Suzaku met Lelouch Lamperouge and his sister Nunnally when they moved to the Kururugi residence as a diplomatic peace trade. At first, Suzaku despised Lelouch because he thought that he was a prince who didn't care about anyone. As time passed by, however, he came to know Lelouch better, and they soon became best friends. They become separated when Britannia invaded Japan, but are reunited in the Shinjuku Ghetto.

    [​IMG]
    Suzaku's Knightmare Frame, the Lancelot

    In the Series

    Suzaku is made the pilot of the experimental Knightmare Frame Lancelot, since Britannia won't risk actual pilots on an experimental craft. He almost single-handedly dismantles Lelouch's plan to route the massacre of Shinjuku ghetto with the Lancelot's abilities, but finds himself under arrest afterward for the murder of Prince Clovis; though Lelouch was in fact responsible for this, the military needs a scapegoat since they have no suspect.

    Suzaku Officials becomes the pilot of the Lancelot. He is enrolled into Ashford Academy on Euphemia's suggestion. His rank within the military is initially Private, but he is promoted to Warrant Officer by Cornelia li Britannia when she first arrives in Japan. He is appointed as Euphemia's personal Knight, granting him the rank of Major, after a televised battle with the Black Knights makes his occupation public knowledge. This ruins Lelouch's plan to have Suzaku protect Nunnally once his role as Zero took him away from Area 11. During the battle on Shikinejima Island, in which Suzaku is ordered to sacrifice himself to kill Zero, Lelouch is forced to use the power of Geass on Suzaku and commands him to "live," forcing him to survive by any means from then on.

    [​IMG]
    C.C. (シー・ツー)
    Age: Unknown
    Nicknames: C2, Witch
    C.C. is an immortal girl who outwardly appears to be little more than 16 years old. She becomes Lelouch Lamperouge's accomplice when he makes a Geass contract with her. She is willful almost to a fault, usually doing whatever she wants regardless of whether or not it inconveniences others, particularly with Lelouch. She also likes to withhold information, usually telling people just enough to leave them wondering. C.C. has a strong penchant for pizza, especially Pizza Hut's (which sponsors the show in Japan, though the logo is blurred out in the English dub); she constantly orders pizzas to Lelouch's house using his credit card. She also carries around a stuffed toy of "Cheese-kun", the company's mascot in Japan. Her love of pizza is often used for comedic effect, as she was twice willing to risk capture simply to get a piece of a giant pizza being made by the Student Council (which is ruined both times). Both Lelouch and Kallen sometimes refer to her as "Pizza Girl".

    [​IMG]

    Before she gained the power of Geass, C.C. was a ten-year old escaped slave. A church nun gave C.C. the power of Geass, making everyone around her fall in love with her. Once C.C.'s power evolved to its highest point and she grew tired of all the proposals and gifts, the nun transferred her immortality to C.C., allowing her to die while leaving C.C. in the position of repeating the cycle.


    [​IMG]
    Nunnally vi Britannia (ナナリー・ヴィ・ブリタニア)
    Age: 14 (first season) 15 (second season)
    Aliases: Nunnally Lamperouge

    Nunnally was born Nunnally vi Britannia, daughter of the Emperor of Britannia, Charles di Britannia, and Marianne vi Britannia. She was 87th in line of succession to the Britannia Throne. When her mother was assassinated, Nunnally was paralyzed by bullet wounds, and went blind due to psychological trauma of witnessing the brutal murder of her mother. Lelouch believes that she may be able to see again someday. After the confrontation between Lelouch and the Emperor of Britannia about the murder of their mother, both Lelouch and Nunnally were exiled to Japan as political prisoners. They then went on to live in Kururugi residence where she first met Suzaku Kururugi.

    [​IMG]
    Nunnally vi Britannia as the Viceroy of Area 11.

    After Britannia invades Japan, Lelouch hides their identity and changes their surname to Lamperouge. They then seek help from Marianne's old allies, the Ashford family, who kept their identity a secret and allowed the two siblings to live in a building on campus to accommodate her disabilities. Nunnally attends Ashford Academy's middle school and is friends with Lelouch's classmates, particularly Shirley Fenette.The second season reveals that everyone's memories of Nunnally have been erased, Lelouch's included. Everyone at Ashford Academy believes that Rolo Lamperouge is Lelouch's younger brother instead, and has been the entire time. After recovering his memory, Lelouch deduces that Nunnally is likely being held hostage by the Emperor, who would not hesitate to use his children to achieve his goals. As a result, Lelouch must try to maintain the masquerade that he has not regained his memories in order to protect her.

    Nunnally makes her first appearance as a reinstated Britannian princess and the new Viceroy of Area 11. She still remembers Lelouch, though she is unaware of his identity as Zero. Nunnally has vowed to continue her late sister Princess Euphemia's will by reinstating the Special Administrative Region in Japan, sharing her and Suzaku's belief that the world can be changed in gentle ways.

    Kallen Kōzuki (紅月カレン)
    Age: 17 (first season) 18 (second season)
    Aliases: Kallen Stadtfeld

    Kallen's Past
    Kallen is a Britannian-Japanese girl, who believes herself to be a Japanese person at heart and prefers to be known by her birth name, Kōzuki. Her father is Britannian and her mother is an Eleven; her father comes from a prestigious Britannian family, which Kallen benefits from. She attends the Ashford Academy, where she is a member of its student council and is one of its most outstanding students. Her brother, Naoto Kōzuki (紅月ナオト, Kōzuki Naoto?), with whom she had a deep connection, was a former leader of her resistance cell before his death. After her biological mother is arrested for using Refrain (a fictional drug which lets people think they're reliving the past), Kallen changes her views and decides to fight against the Britannian Empire not only for her brother, but to fulfill her new wish for a world in which she can live happily with her biological mother.

    [​IMG]
    Frail and meek, this aspect of Kallen's character was used as a public front to mask her true nature as well as hide her involvement in the resistance.

    Karen's Knightmare The Guren Mk-II

    As a running gag, Kallen ends up nude or immodestly dressed in front of other people on numerous occasions: Lelouch sees her naked after she pulls back a shower curtain in surprise in the third episode, Suzaku sees her bathing under a waterfall when they are stranded on Kaminejima, she is forced to dress in an immodest bunny costume at the start of the second season (to plant a tracking device on Lelouch), and she walks in on a meeting between C.C. and the Chinese ambassadors wearing only a towel when intending to complain about the previous situation to C.C. (claiming that the operation would've gone faster if C.C. was wearing the outfit).

    I kind of like this one, the robots are like gundams. And I like how le louch's manipulative power works, even without the geas he still did manipulate his "Brother".

    Im watching this now. I really, didn't like the start, due to the fact that just because Lelouch was a pro at chess meant he could outsmart proper millitary. I also think that the knightmares are more of a gimmick in this, simply so that the major characters can juke it out on the battlefield.
    But now, halfway though the series, im starting to enjoy it more. Although it does seem to go though a cycle of each ep. Everything is right at the start, or compeltly screwed over. It then becomes better by the middle, and then by the end, all hell breaks loose. Im still waiting for some explanation of some things though, and I will be watching till the end.

    This is one of the best animes I've watched, if not THE best. The ending of the whole series (meaning the end of R2) is the most perfect ending ever created by man.

    Amen. I can't wait until I can buy the full box set of both seasons! (for me, that means waiting for it to arrive in South Africa, and hoping it's the dubbed version)

    It is a resounding fact that the endings for both series are epic. I still get chills when I remember the last scene of the first season! The intros are great as well, with a really catchy selection of good music.

    Overall, it's up there with Neon Genesis!

    I just remembered now, but does Lelouch remind anybody else of a grown-up Artemis Fowl? Think about it, same black hair, same pale skin, same calm and commanding voice, same wicked genius...
