On August 10th of the year 2010 the Holy Empire of Britannia began a campaign of conquest, its sights set on Japan. Operations were completed in one month thanks to Britannias deployment of new mobile humanoid armor vehicles dubbed Knightmare Frames. Japans rights and identity were stripped away, the once proud nation now referred to as Area 11. Its citizens, Elevens, are forced to scratch out a living while the Britannian aristocracy lives comfortably within their settlements. Pockets of resistance appear throughout Area 11, working towards independence for Japan. Lelouch, an exiled Imperial Prince of Britannia posing as a student, finds himself in the heart of the ongoing conflict for the island nation. Through a chance meeting with a mysterious girl named C.C., Lelouch gains his Geass, the power of the king. Now endowed with absolute dominance over any person, Lelouch may finally realize his goal of bringing down Britannia from within!

The first time I saw Code Geass I immediately fell in love with the characters and the story; I devoured Season Two within 2 days! Then, after experiencing such a powerful ending I just had to see how it all began. So I went and bought ALL of the first season DVDs. At the time of this review I have just 3 more episodes left to watch in season one, then I will have seen the whole the story from beginning to end. This first set of 5 episodes on DVD has very high re-watch value, as do both seasons so far. Every episode is well done. Character work and story design are brilliant; story is heavily character-driven. This is not your average Anime. If you haven't met Prince Lelouch, Knight Suzaku, and 'immortal witch' C.C. yet, you're missing out! There are some re-occurring elements over both seasons such as: some nudity, racism, ideology, and moral debates.
Oh, and you wanted to destroy the very Empire you were part of, to get back at the Father who failed to save your Mother?
Add terrorists, set the whole thing in Japan, add a school, with lots of cool artwork from CLAMP, good characters, wonderful voice actors and actresses. And a cat.
What do you get? THIS!
The best part is the feeling that there are wheels within wheels within wheels. I think there is more here than meets the eye - but I may be wrong and I don't wish to spoil the fun. Get it! Used, new, anyway you can!
I have shown this series to several friends and nobody has failed to fall in love yet. The first season of this series grabs you and sends you on a non-stop roller coaster which ends in a season-end cliff hanger that will quite simply rip your soul from your body and hold it hostage until you get season two and the sweet loving embrace of it's resolution. Season two is currently (as of July 2008) being aired weekly in Japan and one can imagine will be available in the US eventually as well.
Long story short, if you don't own this anime, you are wrong. It is absolutely fantastic!
