Anime Review #1: Code Geass!

All of this info is revealed super early in the series, so there are no spoilers.

Code Geass is, first and foremost, a mech anime. It does however have a very engrossing plot outside of this. It seems that the trend of the Japanese being victims of abuse despite their own military exploits in real life continues here, but it's done to great effect. Apparently, Britain was able to suppress the American Revolution and it's capitol was placed somewhere in North America establishing it's rule as the Holy Britannian Empire. The Empire is a mix of Britain's idea of divine right and America's perceived MO of Capitalism-to-the-extreme to create a monster of an Empire which only the archetypical hero, the son of the villain, can defeat.

Now that you know a little about the series, it's time for my opinion. I love this series so much that it's ridiculous. It is without a doubt my favorite anime ever, and every anime I've watched since then has been a disappointment in comparion with this masterpiece. You can't even compete with this amazing venture into mechs, philosophy and ideology, superpowers-with-consequences, believable human characters, and an evolving plot with characters who CHANGE WITH THE PLOT! You see them develop before your very eyes! You just can't beat the experience!


  1. Hmm...I've never seen Code Geass. Sounds like it's a pretty good anime, I'll look into it.

  2. Don't bother reading the manga, it's an alternate storyline thing.

  3. The manga is ?
    Whaa ??
    So that person doesnt die in the end or what ? :O
