It's been one year since the failure of the Black Rebellion and the supposed death of Zero. Britannia has assigned Area 11 a "correctional education" status, where Elevens are made an example of by brute force, to try to prevent any future uprisings and suppress rebellious thoughts. Unsuspecting high school student Lelouch, oblivious to his rebellious past as Zero, stumbles upon a scheme on his life and the life of a mysterious woman known as C.C., who reveals to him his forgotten purpose and his "true" self. Destroying his assailants and declaring himself Zero once again, Lelouch sets out to finish what he started.
Hannah's comments: Now, the story gets really complicated! None seem to know what they really feel, or what they really think is right or wrong. What was right at first hand, seems to be wrong later on or vice versa. The persons they trusted before, canīt be trusted now. Sometimes the series reminds me about the nonanimated tv-series "North and South", which was very popular in the middle of 80īs. Code Geass is a little of that, when you watch Suzakuīs life and thoughts and Lelouchīs behaviours and thoughts. Although, sometimes it also seems to be the Geassīs fault, that a war breaks out. A war that also reminds me a bit of the second world war, a useless war, which in the end no one win, just loose. Of course, some lovefeelings in all kinds, sister-brother, friend-friend, man-woman etc. The Geassthing tries to be a God combined with the old Emperor. That animation, when you come into the "World of Geass", is really good done, those who believe in God, might see the world of God like this! I didnīt expect the series would be so deep and depressing. And yes, the ending of Code Geass R2 is not typical Japanese or typical American, somewhere inbetween. A little abrupt ending. Much of "military music" which in this case, of course suits good here. As I said before, the robots are really fun to watch. They even got better in this second series. More professional. Bang. Bang. The conclusion, watch the animé, from the beginning to the end, all 50 episodes of Code Geass: Lelouch of Rebellion! The best character? Well...hard to tell, but I think the Emperor, even if he didnīt show himself so much.
