Lelouch Lamperouge, an abandoned prince of the Holy Britannian Empire, hides his true identity as a student in the colonized territory of Area 11, formerly known as Japan. After he acquires the power of "Geass" from the mysterious girl named C.C., which enables him to command anyone to obey his order, he wears the mask of Zero and begins his rebellion against his own father's empire, so that he can take revenge for his assassinated mother. A thrilling fusion of the world of an Arthurian knighthood and the futuristic robotic warfare, this epic series has been internationally recognized with various awards including Outstanding TV Anime at Tokyo Anime Award (2007) and Best Original Series at Japan Expo held in Paris, France (2010). A must-see for all sci-fi and fantasy fans!

I'm eager for Bandai to release the 2nd season in a set(anybody knows a release date?)...the 1st season was good, but the 2nd season is even better- especially the ending!
Perhaps the best thing about it is that it combined the minds of Bandai, a video game company that brought us great titles, like .Hack and Gundam, and the artists of CLAMP in a wonderfully complex story about love, revenge, war, life, and the choices that drive our futures.
The art is amazing, and I was surprised to find that I didn't even mind the obvious addition of Mecha. (I normally dislike Mecha, because writers often sacrifice plot for fighting-robot scenes.) I am glad to say that this is not the case with Code Geass.
For me, watching this series was an experience. It is fascinating to watch these multi-layered characters making decisions that will shape the futures of these around them--and to think, they are still in high school! These characters have great depth, and the plot reflects their interactions well. I enjoyed seeing the motivations for each come to light little by little, and how observing those motivations made others react to the charismatic characters of Zero/Lelouch Vi Britannia and Kururuugi Suzaku.
The end of this great series leaves you with more questions than it answers, but the openness to its interpretation fits perfectly with the rest of the series. And it incorporates Mecha, School-Life, Love stories, Revenge, War, Politics, Magic and several other genres so it will appeal to a wider audience.
This is a very reflective play, forcing the watchers to delve deeper into what makes us 'human', and brings to light many of those deeper questions that most people try to avoid.
In short, this is entirely brilliant, right up there with Alexander Senki/Reign the Conqueror as far as thinking goes.
I would recommend this to anyone who has reached their majority, and wishes to enjoy something grand!

Die Handlung des Animes, von dem der Käufer hier 625 Minuten Laufzeit erhält, ist nicht gerade einfach. Die Charaktere sind Klasse und machen ähnliche Entwicklungen durch wie die Protagonisten von Games of Thrones, so ist Lelouch anfangs ein Befreiungskämpfer aber greift im Verlauf der Handlung zu immer schmutzigeren Mitteln, umgekehrt lernt man bösartige Britannier oft erst nach ihrem Tod über die betroffenen Angehörigen als Menschen kennen. Dazwischen gibt es aber auch Charaktere, die eine langsame Entwicklung zum Bösen durchmachen, Idealisten, die eine Tragödie durchmachen müssen und auch Figuren, die einfach Lustig sind.
Neben der Moralischen Diskussion aus verschiedenen Perspektiven machen besonders Action-Szenen, in denen Riesenroboter gegeneinander kämpfen, den Anime aus. Die ersten Roboter sind noch durchaus Realitätsnah, später werden sie aber immer Mächtiger und Futuristischer.
Zum Schluß endet die Staffel in einem bombastischen Finale... mit einem Cliffhanger. Also schnell Staffel 2 kaufen.
