Code Geass is a popular anime series that aired from 2006 to 2008. The show revolves around the protagonist, Lelouch vi Britannia, who is the exiled prince of Britannia. The setting is an alternate universe where the world is divided into three superpowers: the Holy Britannian Empire, the Chinese Federation, and the European Union. The storyline of Code Geass is gripping and full of suspense, and it gained a massive following among anime enthusiasts worldwide.

The series follows the journey of Lelouch, who gains a mysterious and powerful ability called the "Geass" from a mysterious female named C.C. With this ability, he is able to command people to do his bidding, making him a force to be reckoned with. However, Lelouch discovers that his newfound power comes at a great cost. Every use of his ability brings him closer to his eventual death.

Despite this, Lelouch decides to use his power to overthrow the Holy Britannian Empire, which he blames for his mother's murder and his sister's paralysis. He takes on the alias "Zero" and becomes the leader of a powerful anti-government organization known as "The Black Knights." Their main goal is to take down the Britannian Empire and create a new world order that is fair and just.

As Lelouch navigates through the complex and dangerous world of politics, he also has to contend with powerful enemies, including his half-siblings, Schneizel and Cornelia, who are high-ranking officials in the Britannian Empire, and Suzaku Kururugi, his childhood friend turned enemy, who is a highly skilled knight and loyal to the Britannian Empire.

Along the way, Lelouch meets a cast of interesting and diverse characters that help him in his quest. These include Kallen Kozuki, a member of The Black Knights and a skilled mecha pilot, Shirley Fenette, Lelouch's classmate and love interest, and Nina Einstein, a scientist who develops a devastating weapon that can destroy entire cities.

The show features intense mecha battles that are not only visually stunning but also play a crucial role in the plot development. The Knightmare Frames, which are the giant robots used in battles, are based on a combination of Britannian and European design elements and come in different classes, each with its unique characteristics and abilities.

The animation and art style of Code Geass are top-notch, and the soundtrack is outstanding. The opening and ending themes are memorable and perfectly set the tone for the show. The voice acting is also excellent, with standout performances from Jun Fukuyama as Lelouch, Takahiro Sakurai as Suzaku, and Yukana as C.C.

Code Geass explores a range of complex themes, including politics, power, morality, and the consequences of one's actions. The show delves into the gray areas of right and wrong, making the viewer question who is truly the hero and who is the villain. The character development is phenomenal, and the relationships between the characters are nuanced and multifaceted.

Overall, Code Geass is a must-watch for anime fans who enjoy shows with complex plotlines, intense action, and memorable characters. The series has a satisfying conclusion that ties up all loose ends and leaves the audience feeling emotionally invested in the outcome.

Code Geass is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (76 episodes). The series first aired on November 19, 2011.
