On August 10, 2010, a.t.b., the Holy Empire of Britannia overpowered Japanese forces and conquered the country with their robotic weapons, the Knightmare Frames, in less than a month. In the aftermath of Britannia’s invasion, Japan lost its freedom and rights and was renamed Area 11.

The Japanese people, renamed as “Elevens”, were forced to survive in ghettos, while Britannians lived in first-class settlements. Rebel elements persisted, however, as pockets of Japanese organizations who struggled against the Empire for the independence of Japan.

After his father, the Emperor of Britannia, didn’t prevent the assassination of his mother, an attack which also left his sister blind and crippled, the young prince named Lelouch vowed to destroy Britannia. Seven years later, living in Area 11, he encounters a mysterious girl who gives him the power of Geass.

With it, he finally has the power that he needs to defeat Britannia and fulfill his two wishes: to seek revenge for his mother and to construct a world in which his beloved sister can live happily.

For Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2, 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.

Main Characters

Lelouch Lamperouge is, seemingly, an ordinary 17-year-old student at the Ashford Academy, Lelouch Lamperouge, also called Lelou by his friends, is in fact the son of the Emperor of Britannia and the late Empress Marianne and a member of the Britannia Imperial Family. His real name is Lelouch Vi Britannia and he was the eleventh prince in line for the title of seventeenth emperor of the britannian empire prior to his mother’s assassination. In an incident, he gained the power of Geass and started his quest on destroying Britannia under the mask, Zero. At the same time, Lelouch tries to make a place where there is no hatred or conflict for his sister Nunnally before she is able to see again.

Suzaku Kururugi si Lelouch’s childhood friend and son of Japan’s last prime minister. He is in the service of the Britannia Army as a soldier, and was chosen to test a new model of the Knightmare Frame, Lancelot. Suzaku claims achieving results by wrong or illegal methods is meaningless and does not approve of Zero’s actions.

C.C. is a mysterious green-haired girl who bestows the power of Geass upon Lelouch under the condition that he would grant her greatest wish. Her abilities caught the interest of Britannia and she was imprisoned as a part of Britannia’s experiments in the past. She passively oversees Lelouch’s missions to ensure that he does not die and to help his plans succeed.

Nunnally Lamperouge is Lelouch’s younger sister, who is wheelchair-bound due to bullet wounds on her legs, as well as blind due to psychological trauma from witnessing the brutal assassination of her mother. She is the primary reason for which Lelouch wishes to overthrow Britannia and create a new world. It was revealed that she became the new governor-general of Area 11.

Kallen Stadtfeld is a Britannian-Eleven girl, who believes herself to be a Japanese person at heart and prefers to be known by her birth name. Her father is Britannian and her mother is an Eleven; due to her father, she comes from a prestigious Britannian family and attends the Ashford Academy, where she is a member of its student council and is one of its most outstanding students. In the second episode, Lelouch orders Kallen and other Elevens to attack the Britannian forces in the Shinjuku Ghetto. She is a member of Order of the Black Knights. More at: Wiki

    yes, the greatest show ever is back for the best season 2 ever.

    season 2 is for the most part just as exciting and entertaining as season 1, must watch series. almost guaranteed to be one of the best anime you’ve ever seen. to be honest its been the best show out for the last 2 years. only Death Note came close to rivaling this series.

    now go and support the rebellion.

  • stukasa says:

    Code Geass R2 is one of the only series I’m following these days. So far I’ve been enjoying season 2, it’s not quite as good as season 1 though (in my opinion). Season 1 was more like a duel between Lelouch and Suzaku except they didn’t know each other’s identities until later on, which made it exciting. Season 2 has more politics in it, and I think the story is little more complicated than it needs to be, but it’s still a very good show.

  • Zer0 says:

    WTF, episode 19 was really good but its so cruel too especially ep 18. still cant believe some event that went down but this show just keeps getting better with all there surprises and twists. man i need episode 20 NOW!!!!

  • Zer0 says:

    hey everyone here is 2 more reasons 2 watch code geass

    Both PIZZA HUT & COKE supports the Rebellion.

    and if you seen the show the COKE one is extra funny. 🙂

    yes this is real.

  • stukasa says:

    ^ ROFL at the Coke one, I never thought of that. 😆 :funny:

  • ware4me says:

    Evil Coke! 😡

    That’s why 4me totally luvs Pepsi! :3:

  • Zer0 says:

    oh pepsi also supports the rebellion. ROFL! Rivals… :funny:

  • LittleVexy says:

    The ending reminded me of the third book in Dune series, titled “God Emperor of Dune“… (yes, as shocking as it seems that v-chan reads! >.> )

    In there the idea of the “Golden Path” is described as well, with similar consequence.

  • ware4me says:

    Oh.. Vexy so wise :3:

    Hmm… maybe I read some of those Dune, but in spanish :p

    Certainly, the end is quite shocking, but somehow it was meant to be that way, no? Good series, not the regular mecha… but maybe there is no place for further series…
