Lelouch, a high school kid and Britannian prince, gains the power of Geass, a power with the ability to make anyone obey him. For the sake of his sister and late mother, Lelouch plans to overthrow his father's empire and create a better world.

Overview

Similar to most SUNRISE animes, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion is a wartime themed anime series that is set on the real Earth, in the not too distant future. Many of the countries shown are real, but events in history are vastly different; in the world of Code Geass, for example, the American Revolution of the 1700s failed. The show is filled with political intrigue and drama, but balanced by the occasional comedy and fanservice.

A new form of mechs was created for the Code Geass series. They are called Human Autonomous Automated Knights, Knightmare Frame (KMF) for short. Unlike with other Sunrise productions, however, the mechs are not the focus of series. The main plot of the anime instead surrounds a mystical power called the Geass.

Plot

Lelouch Lamperouge seems like a normal high schooler living in Area 11, the number designated by the Britannian Empire when it conquered Japan. In reality, however, he is a son of the Emperor of Britannia, living with his crippled younger sister, rejected by their father. He yearns for vengeance but has not yet figured out the best way to acquire it, and therefore lives a relatively quiet life. …Until he meets C.C., that is. After being accidentally drawn into a conflict between the Britannian army (including his childhood friend Suzaku) and a group of rebels who wish to restore Japan to autonomy, Lelouch attempts to save a mysterious green-haired girl who, in turn, saves his life and grants him the mysterious power known as Geass. The power grants Lelouch the ability to command anyone who he looks in the eye-- but only once. After experimenting with and learning the limitations of his new power, Lelouch decides that the time is right for his vengeance and gets started, manipulating a group of Japanese rebels into becoming his army against Britannia. But will he be able to fight against Suzaku, and other friends he's made who are Britannian citizens?
