    Default [TV Series] Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

    Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
    Japanese name: Kōdo Giasu: Hangyaku no Rurūshu
    Studio: Sunrise
    Aired: October 5, 2006-September 28, 2008
    Tv Series, 50 epsiodes
    Genre: Action, Drama, Psychological, Science Fiction, Supernatural

    Plot Synopsis:
    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. (From AnimeNewsNetwork)

    Art and Animation: 8/10
    While the Animation by Sunrise is fluid and occasionally quite impressive, it's nothing special in hindsight. CLAMP's character designs are good, but not for everyone. They're really an acquired taste, and I'm sure many aren't fond of them. Regardless, the art and animation are somewhat superior to many of their counterparts.

    Story: 10/10
    Code Geass's story is supremely interesting, wickedly experimenting with the giant mecha genre and turning it into the insanely twisted, but extremely fun story that I don't think many will finish the anime disappointed with. A lot of this has to do with the characters, which I'll go into in depth later. For now, let's just say that it defies the laws of giant mecha character archetypes into an interesting, original piece of storytelling that you won't soon forget.

    Voice Acting/Music: 9.5/10
    My high opinion of this anime's sound is due to two people. Jun Fukuyama and Kotaro Nakagawa. Jun Fukuyama's portrayal of Lelouch as the magnificent bastard has always been one of my favorite performances in Anime history and the standard that I hold great voice-acting to. He can be subtle and sweet-sounding or strong and sinister, which really fits Lelouch and his alter-ego well. While the other characters are very well-acted, especially for their roles, Fukuyama's performance really stands out. Second, Kotaro Nakagawa. I have marked this man's name down as a god of soundtrack composing. (Up there with Hans Zimmer and the like.) His broad, orchestral soundtrack really complements the anime well, and each song has its own interesting sound to it, though I'll admit it occasionally falls into generic epicness.

    Characters: 10/10
    This is certainly the Anime's strongest aspect. As I've said, it twists the laws of Mecha anime into something fascinating and unique. Mask-wearing well-intentioned extremist who is a military genius and has a wicked evil laugh? Why, he's the hero! Idealistic ace-pilot with the mecha that's better than everyone else's? The villain protagonist! Most of the time with films and anime, people say that they can watch them over and over again because they notice some new camera angle or something in the background. But that's not why you'll want to watch Code Geass again. You'll watch again to see Lelouch's latest plan come into fruition, and it never gets old.

    Overall: 9.9/10
    A darn near perfect anime, with its only drawback being occasional animation weaknesses. Regardless of those, this is my favorite anime of all time and certainly a good watch for any fan of the giant mecha genre, or any anime genre really.

    Default Re: [TV Series] Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

    Plot synopsis: The story is set in an alternate history world where America lost the revolutionary war and was renamed Brittania. In 2010 the Brittanian Empire conquered Japan and renamed it Area 11. An exiled Brittanian prince named Lelouch obtains a power called Geass, and vows that one day he will obliterate Brittania.

    Art and Animation (10/10)- The art style is extremely beautiful and the animation is nothing short of extravagant. This anime shows that you do not need CG to have good animation.

    Story (10/10)- The story is completely and utterly fantastic, and it is also very original. It starts off a little slow but then picks up the pace very quickly. The ending was nearly perfect if not perfect.

    Characters (10/10)- The character development is incredible. Once again props to the ending for the depth of the development. Some of the conflicts that these characters faced nearly brought tears to my eyes. Lelouch is my favorite anime character of all time.

    Voice Acting/Music (10/10)- The music is really epic. It always fits the mood no matter what. The Japanese voice acting is amazing, but the English dub is even better. The dialogue is so profound and all of the voice actors fit their characters extremely well. Johnny Yong Bosch and Jun Fukuyama are perfect as Lelouch.

    Overall (10/10)- With nearly no flaws, the best English dub ever, and a story that keeps you begging for more Code Geass is my favorite anime of all time. I would recommend it to anyone.
