Storyline

The Empire of Britannia has invaded Japan using giant robot weapons called Knightmare Frames. Japan is now referred to as Area 11, and its people the 11's. A Britannian who was living in Japan at the time, Lelouch, vowed to his Japanese friend Suzaku that he'd destroy Britannia. Years later, Lelouch is in high school, but regularly skips out of school to go play chess and gamble on himself. One day, he stumbles on terrorists 11's who've stolen a military secret and is caught by a member of the Britannian task force sent after them, who is Suzaku. As the rest of the squad arrives, Suzaku is shot for disobeying orders, while the military secret, a young immortal witch, gives Lelouch the power of Geass, which makes anyone obey any order. While Suzaku is secretly made the pilot of Britannia's brand new prototype Knightmare, Lancelot, Lelouch becomes the masked Zero to lead the rebellion to destroy Britannia once and for all.

If it is wrong to be powerless,does having power make you right??
3 February 2012 | by bschiranthSee all my reviews

First thing i would like to ask? y the hell r there only 17 reviews in IMDb for this awesome show?!while things like pokemon and twilight get thousands of reviews!

I only had to watch the first episode to discover that i am going to be spending the rest of my free time watching this. Yes...this show is very addictive. At the end of every episode there is a twist or something to look forward to the next episode.The story and writing is simply top notch

The best part of this anime is the moral decisions the protagonists makes right or wrong ..good or evil ??its all in the persons perspective.Another best part of this show is the music which just fits so well with the superb dialogues.English voice acting was very very good.

The strategies employed in this show remind me of death note but this show is different in its own kind.Not just the brilliant story with twists , even the emotions that get evoked in you in some episodes is just so good..

Enough said..just go and watch this awesome show of 50 episodes to get your mind blown and heart fulfilled...
