The story basically follows the two intertwined stories of Lelouch (royal blood) and Suzaku (honorary Britannia) as they live in this Area 11 (Japan that was taken over by Britannia). Lelouch is imbued with a power from an unknown woman and he makes a promise to destroy Britannia to make the world a better place. Suzaku is on a different storyline and seems to be on a path to be in leagues with a scientist who works with the empire. There is also one more character, Kallen who is half Japanese and half britannian, who is in leagues with a resistance force. Her and Lelouch have multiple run ins. With this setup of positions and characters, it will be interesting to see where they end up in the next volume
The art design is quite appropriate however in the afterword, it could be done better in the next volume as the author seems to imply (ie inconsistencies with the character details and designs).
Ultimately this one ends in a sort of psuedo cliffhanger which leaves us dying to know what happens in the next book.
-Read in the traditional manga format
-Few characters make it easy to see their motives and follow them
-Fast pacing never bores the reader
-Borders on the line of science fiction and military/rebellion relations
-Really fast paced, most people will read it through in less than 2 hours
-A few murky parts make for rereading of several previous panels a few times
-Ending leaves you dying for the next novel!
Ultimately a great first entry in the series and one that wont be soon forgotten. The most of the Code Geass anime that I have seen was part of the first episode and this one helped explain many of the details that were confusing to me in that episode. This is an awesome book series and I cant wait for more books to come out. A must have for anyone 13 and up.
