"Code Lyoko" tells the story of a group of students who uncover a parallel universe called Lyoko inside a super-computer that is threatened by a renegade program named XANA that could destroy the world. It's up to four boarding-school students named Jeremy, Yumi, Ulrich, and Odd to help a humanoid being inside Lyoko named Aelita to stop the rogue program XANA and his plans to attack their world. Jeremy, who is in love with Aelita, struggles through season 1 to find a way to "materialize" Aelita, so she can become human by exiting the scanners that connect Odd, Ulrich, and Yumi to Lyoko. If Jeremy accomplishes this, he will be able to shut down Lyoko and defeat XANA. We witness Jeremy finally materializes Aelita, and accomplish his dream. The group deactivate Lyoko, but XANA apparently infected Aelita with a virus before she was materialized so that if XANA goes, she does too!

Aelita's eyes are green. The eyes of all the other characters are black. Also, in the second season, Aelita's eyes are black while not in LYOKO. See more »
Sissy applies a mudpack to her face before she is attacked in her room. She is still wearing it at the beginning of the attack, but she is not wearing it when she falls to the floor. After the attack, when she is walking with the principal to the infirmary, she is wearing the mudpack again. See more »
First, let me say that I grew up watching this show. Everyday, after school, I sat down in front of the TV and watched the next 23-minute episode. For four years, until the show ended airing in 2011. After a few years, the show was re-aired in 2013-2014, and of course, how could I not re-watch my favorite TV show? I still loved it, although by the time I was already 12 years old.
The thing does not end here, as this year I was scrolling through Youtube and found all the episodes. Once more, I couldn't help it. I watched the whole show in a month. And even at my age, I absolutely loved it.
So the show starts when Jeremie Belpois, a 13-year-old boy attending boarding school at Kadic Academy, discovers a quantum supercomputer in an abandoned factory near his school.
Upon activating it, he discovers a virtual world called Lyoko with a young girl, Aelita, trapped inside it. A series of bizarre events begin to occur at Kadic Academy.
Jeremie learns of X.A.N.A., a malevolent artificial intelligence multi-agent system who also dwells within the supercomputer. X.A.N.A.'s goal is to conquer the real world and all human beings. Throughout Season 1, Jeremie works to materialize Aelita into the real world and stop X.A.N.A.
Jeremie is aided by his three friends Ulrich Stern, Odd Della Robbia, Yumi Ishiyama as they, along with Aelita, are virtualized into Lyoko in order to save both worlds from the sinister virtual entity. In "Code Earth" Aelita is finally materialized, but the group discovers that X.A.N.A. had planted a virus inside Aelita, which prevents them from shutting down the supercomputer.
The second season focuses on the group as Aelita adjusts to life in the real world while Jeremie searches for an anti-virus for Aelita. In Lyoko, a fifth sector is discovered and the group explores more of Lyoko's secrets and mysteries, while X.A.N.A. attempts to steal Aelita's memory in order to gain the keys to Lyoko and free itself.
In the third-season finale, the group is joined by William Dunbar. Once virtualized in Lyoko, William is possessed by X.A.N.A. He remains under X.A.N.A.'s possession for majority of the season, but is saved later on.
While the show's target is young people, the plot contains enough to satisfy any viewer. There is a constant subplot of romance, Aelita's past is amazing and the character evolution is brilliant. The animation is really good, considering when the show was made, and I truly recommend watching the show. Lyoko is a magical place, and the plot is so well-made... You don't see these shows anymore, do you?
Also, if you were enchanted by the show, as I was, you'll probably like to read the books that continue the show. They're even better, although I would say that they're 9+ because of some subplots of terrorism, although very mild and absolutely for kids. They made a continuation of the show (CL Evolution) but it lost its magic due to it being non-animated.
It also has important messages, and it's appropriate for all ages. Give it a shot.
