This seems to be a pretty common comparison - probably because Light and Lelouch are practically the same character. Both shows feature quite a bit more intellectual sparring than your typical shounen fare, and both main characters have very similar personalities (they're closer to being villains than heroes) and abilities (ridiculously powerful but with prominent weaknesses that require careful planning to circumvent).
Lots of thinking involved, and the main character exploits a 'magical power' to try to change the world.
Genius's with a special power using their brain strategising and planning. Light and Lelouch have similar ideals and try to change the world in the name of justice but acts more like the villain
Both anime have a main character who can control other people.
Two student who get a power and use it to rid the world of evil, but it slowly takes them over. Both shows are very similar, and Light = Lelouch.
The protagonists, Lelouch and Light, both gain an ability that can change the world.
both the main characters' wish is to change the world with their own hands..plus the two main characters shares almost the same attitudes...plus the flow of the story too..it's kinda the same~
Main Characters have the same kind of intentions. Both are smart and use good strategies/tactics, very interesting. Main characters both have interesting powers.
Both anime are like a chess game. Very strategic and different from what you've seen before.
The two opposing protagonists in each series fights for what they believe is true justice.
It's kind of like Death Note with mechs and lots of big bosomed girls.
It has some of the same sort of premise that Death Note does, and some of the same atmosphere, but it takes itself a lot less seriously. It also plays out less like a thriller, but it has some of the same sort of cat and mouse element that Death Note has.
You might not like Code Geass, but there are enough similarities that you probably should give it a shot.
If you like kira in Death Note you'll like Lelouch in Code Geass
The situation is totally different but in both the main character is very sharp and uses his brain all the time . Though in Death Note the main char had ti fight other mastermind , in Code Geass has to defeat an whole empire .
Both of them will make you want more ;)
Uses their intellectual skills. And fight for what they think is right.
Code Geass has more or less the same idea as Death Note, the ally of justice, but a "zero" instead of "kira" and some mind work here and there. the differences are: Code Geass is more colourful+humorous, the protagonist is more emotional and less clever when compared to light.
The series are both about 1 person that gets a power to do good things, but some people think it isnt good what they does, some people do. (In death note, the killing of criminals, and in Code Geass he wants that the 11's can be called Japanese again) They have both a friend, who's on the 'battlefield' an enemy.
(sorry if my english isnt good)
The main characters of both shows are remarkably similar. The only significant differences are that Lelouch, unlike Light, has more reasoning behind his actions than simple boredom and Lelouch cares about more people than just himself. If you've watched Death Note first you'll half expect Lelouch to start screaming about becoming the God of the new world.
The series themselves are quite different. Death Note is set in our world, where as Code Geass is set in an alternate universe where Britannia rules most of the world. Code Geass has bright colours, comedy and ecchi, Death Note does not. However, there really aren't many anime with characters quite like Light and Lelouch, and the similarities they share are more than enough reason for a fan of one to like the other.
Very similar plot. A boy who gets the power to make anyone do what he wants and use it to change the world they live in. Both very interesting with unique characters (except maybe for suzaku). "The bad guy" in the main character position, everyone against him.
The plot of Light/ Kira (Ryoko) vs. Lelouch/ Zero (C.C.), with same smart cold (evil in a way) main character with an abnormal power who uses it to change the world to a better place from his own point of view for justice
In both series there is someone trying to make a better world with help from something special. Death Note has it's notebook and in Code Geass there is the Geass.
Although Code Geass might involve a few mechas, it bares a strong resemblance to Death Note, they both include a main character who is a genius and who has just acquired a supernatural power which they wish to use to reform the world into their ideal. So if you enjoyed Death Note you might also want to check out Code Geass.
Both Anime titles feature a female character that just gets in the way... Sure, they can be helpful at times, but overall they are just annoying... In this one it's a forced GF, but in Code Geass it's sort of a Sidekick...
I know a lot of people like it when there's dumb broads that piss the main character off, especially if they are hot...
both revolve around the idea of manipulating others with special powers
Both Kira(Light) and Zero(Lelouch) want to create a new world. L and Suzaku are against their methods of creating this new world.
The only difference is that Light is idealist, while Lelouch is realist. And L is realist, Suzaku an idealist.
Rather similar theme of both main characters trying to create a better world via their manipulative alter ego's.
Both characters also start out with good intentions, but start to lose their own ideals along the way and become more out of control.
Code Geass is similar to Death Note in how they deal with morality issues such one's justice. They both play mind games with their enemies expect Code Geass is more of that of the military nature. The main characters in both uses mostly anyone they could as their pawn in order to achieve their victory.
Well,lets see,u like Kira or Lulu ;D ?
if so u can watch both of the anime and u would love them XD
very similiar to each other,intersting and keeps u exited ;3
The Main characters are both smart as hell, and have the same ideal and of a world without evil :)
Well, they are both awesome for one, the protagonists are similar, they think alike I guess, And the cliffhangers...I thought I'd die from watching these -_- I think the main similarity is the characters and what they hope to achieve - World Domination (sorta) and the animes are about how they go about that.
Both protagonists have their lives changed dramatically when they encounter a being who gives them strange powers, and they both use their power to pursue their ideals.
The similarity here is quite obvious. Hyper-smart main characters are bestowed with a special power, which they then make use of to change the world to their liking, through plotting, planning and strategy.
Quite similar. Although the main characters have diferent objectives, they both want to rule the world, and also have the 'master-mind' needed to do that. If you liked Death Note, watch Code Geass; and if you liked Code Geass, watch Death Note!
The main characters of these series gain a power to control/kill people and they want to change the world.
Very similar main character and main line of plot. And both use the same motives, like unnatural partner, great skill etc. etc.
And both are marvellous. :)
Despite how Code Geass has mechas and intense action scenes, both of these series both have a highly intellegent main character given a special gift/power that is used to turn the tide of the world. While Death Note may have more clever ideas and less action, Code Geass still has a great main character full of ambition and has some of the most exciting mecha action there is. When it comes down to it, you can't help but appreciate the brilliant minds of Light Yagami and Lelouch, and if you liked one,you'll probably like the other.
Code Geass and Death Note are similar to each other in a way that they make the viewers (watchers) think of who is really justice and the like. They are both intelligent animes. If you like Death Note, I guess you'll also like Code Geass, and vice versa.
Not only the main characters are quite similar, but also in both shows they have "supernatural" ways to manipulate people (Death Note(s) - Geass).
Both of main character obtain a power that will change the world. Not only that, both of main character is very intelligent,dare to make risky move that usual people don't want to.
Code Geass and Death Note were pretty much like each other, in my opinion at least. Death Note was too dark for my taste, whereas Code Geass has somewhat similar plot and the main character isn't so evil at all, at least not until the very end, and even that is debatable. However, Code Geass isn't as deeply intellectual series as Death Note. So, if you liked one of these, you might really like the other one too.
The two main characters have the same twisted mind frame, using strategy to kill in order to create a "new and better world."
In both animes the main character - an ordinary boy in the beginning - gets super-powers and decides to change the world by very cruel and remorseless means.
The anime differs much. But when it comes to the main characters, they have alot in common. They both have that so called unique way of thinking, not to mention how smart both are. And they might also have the same goal.
Light and Lelouch have similar personality and demeanor with different motives and methods.
Light wants to create a world where there is no crime, with the us of the DeathNote he began killing criminals with unforgivable crimes.
While Leouch got the Geass which he uses along with his intellect to undermine and eventually crush an Empire.
Both the characters through-out the series face rivals which challenge their intellect and wit to the limits.
Both are very similar to the story but also the character. Lelouch is very similar Light. Find them have the same character.
I think you'll find the main characters to be VERY similar.
Both feature a main character with a god-like supernatural power, strategy and mind battles.
probably the only similarity is few characteristics of the main character. Light Yagami and Lelouch are secretively trying to destroy the bad guys (criminals in DN and ruthless Britannia empire in CG). Similar to how Light keeps fighting L, Near, Mello by using various strategies, Lelouch has to deal with his best friend, who is empire's servant in a similar way except that CG's setting is in a future where Robots (controlled by humans) do the fighting. I don't want to go in further details, but let me assure you that if you liked DN, you will also like CG for sure.
Both are about a guy with some power (the death note/geass), hoping to change the world for the better
When I finished Death Note, I was going through such bad withdrawal that I needed to find another anime that was similar to watch.
Code Geass did it for me. Although I think it's not as thrilling and suspenseful as Death Note, it definitely has my thumbs up. The story idea of a character having the power to change the world is similar. The setting, fighting, and etc. are different. Actually, I think Code Geass has more action than Death Note since it deals a bit with the military and stuff.
So, if you like Death Note and you like guns and fighting, I'd say go for Code Geass. It helped me through my Death Note withdrawal, and I hope it can do the same for you!
Lead roles are quite similar: both are given a rather limited superpower, and decide to create a better world with it. Cat and mouse mindgames ensue with the rest of the world, where both sides use underhanded tactics to gain victory.
Both portagonists want to make a better world using a supernatural power, both are very intelligent and both will do anything to achieve their objectives.
Lelouch Lamperouge and Yagami Light share some characteristics. They both want too change the world at all cost. Not a single death is too much for them. Although there are no Mecha's in Death Note, and no Shinigami's in Code Geass, I am sure that if you liked the one, you will like the other, so jump into the lives of these Anti-Heroes, and see what they will do for their goals!
Both of the main characters, Light and Lelouch, are very intelligent, and consistently demonstrate their abilities throughout each of their respective series. If you liked that cleverness from Death Note, you will definitely enjoy Code Geass.
Story and chracters are very similar. If you like the first one, you will love the second and vice versa.
main characters are extremely similar. both receive a power that allows them to control others. both have generally good intentions but have extreme ways to achieve that goal. right from the first episode i couldn't help but think this guy is just like Light.
Both Death note, and Code geass have excelent suspence, and leave the watcher wanting more...
if you liked that, then you should try watching this anime
This anime has the perfect "death note" feel to it... the main character thinks almost the same way light does and hopes to accomplish a somewhat similar goal... only through different means. although its very similar to death note it has far more action and far more characters that play an important role in the store. shame there is no "L" like character in code though....
Code Geass is similar to Death Note in that Lelouch can kill people with out touching them or make them do what ever he wants.
Both Code Geass and Death Note follow the stories of ingenious and charismatic young men who gain a special power. Both characters use their new power to attempt to change the world. Both animes are full of suspense and twists!
I realized how similar these two animes are right from the first episode, both have amazing character personalities, great animation and both make you watch more and more even though you should be doing something else...
From the general idea behind both shows, to subtle details, Code Geass IS Death Note, but with mechs. Seeing as how Death Note was first and also, in my opinion, easily the better of the two shows, Code Geass can be considered a Death Note-ripoff. If you like exotic character design and giant robots, you may enjoy Code Geass more, but overall, Death Note does a much better job of telling the story of a young man who gains a supernatural power and wishes to improve society through controversial means. Death Note is more thought-provoking while Code Geass emphasizes the typical shounen aspects more.
Both main characters have a limited amount of power to control other peoples mind / life span. Even tho the main characters are similar, code geass has alot of mecha action while death note has barely any action. But both of them are still great!
Just like everyone else says, the main characters, Light and Lelouch, are similar in their genius minds and willpower to change the world. Not only that but both of the stories unfolded quite well and were unpredictable till the end.
The control aspect of the Death Note and Geass mirror each other. The characters also have the same mindset of making the world a better place, regardless of casualties or sacrifices. Both Yagami Light and Lelouch Lamperouge are very emotional, although they tend to hide it well, and are stubborn and reluctant to use their powers on those they care about, namely Yagami Sayu and Kururugi Suzaku, respectively.
Basically, the two things that resemble each other are the plot devices and Light Yagami/Lelouch's characters. The plot devices are there basically to fill up gaping plot holes (and both present some of the worst actually). As for the characterization of Lelouch and Light, they're both very identical - twisted form of justice, selfish and arrogant disposition and very manipulative and calculative in treating the people around him for their own goals.
Geass is something like Death Note. Both main characters (who have a strong sense of justice) come into possession of that mysterious power, which allows them to change the world. They have comrade-in-arms, who gave them that ability (C.C. and Ryuuk). So both Lelouch (under the alias Zero) and Light (under the alias Kira) start a mind game and wage war against that rotten world, which should be destroyed and rebuilded again as a better place.
Both series focus on a character that could be seen as either good or evil; A character who is trying to usurp the current rulers and set himself at the top. Also, both Lelouch and Light are tactical geniuses, both have an almost psychopathic and egotistical side, but all the while they are very good at keeping up a calm and collected facade in front of other people. Finally, both possess something of supernatural power that allows them to get ahead in the game quickly, but may or may not be their downfall in the end.
Both are tales of Revolution.
There is good action but that is not what i think it is all about. It is more the psychological aspect that is really interesting. There is more action in code geass - hangyaku no lelouch but i think that the death note has a more detailed story line.
The animation styles are very different. Code Geass may look lighter or happier, but both anime deal with dark themes of control, death, judgment, and power.
While Death Note takes place in our world, Code Geass takes place in a sort of alternate history based world with Mecha, a complex political situation, and a dystopian landscape in Japan.
In both cases a very intelligent character who is seemingly normal otherwise, is suddenly presented with a supernatural power and the choice of what to do with it. Both decide to use their new found power to change the world for, in their opinion, the better; but, not everyone feels the use of such power is ethical, or, agrees how to make the world better, and the characters face opposition. In Death Note the conflicts are much closer, as they do not involve international politics or battles, they are more centered on the minds of the two main protagonists. Code Geass involves much of the same chess style psychological battling, but, applies it to the grand stage of world power struggles as well as character driven motivations.
Both anime feature plot twists and a sense of unpredictability, if you enjoyed one, you will likely enjoy the other, though, they are different in many ways and should not be watched with expectations of intense similarity.
Code Geass is concluded in the season season, Code Geass r2
The main characters are both "evil" masterminds behind a plot to save the world. They both acquire a supernatural power and use it to their full potential, c.c. is like ryuk. and Lelouch's geass is like Light's death note. Both have friends on the enemy's side that are unaware of their identity.
Code Geass is a little more childish and unrealistic, but if you enjoyed the intellectual Death Note you can't miss this anime!
Both feature similar protagionists and both series have a more thinking and suspense style to it then it does with action scenes. The primary difference between the two is that Code Geass involves politics and warfare where as Death Note is more based on crime and detective work.
Death Note and Code Geass's plot are very similar. The main characters in both anime created a name for themselves such as Zero and Kira. Both of them keep their faces hidden and want to uphold justice.
the main caracter is trying to change the world^^its one of the many things i can say is similair betwen those animes i cant say all of them its so many
Its has almost the same main character and have the same problem for the main
that he goes against the community and try to destroy/ change the world.
they both use some sored of mystical power and uses it on many people (for light its the death note, for lelouch its the giass).
They are bot similar to each other, the stuggle between "good" and "evil". The two masterminds Yagami Light and Lelouch Lamperouge have similarities on how they want the world to be and to bow before them...
Both deal with a man who obtains a mysterious power and use it to improve the world and rid it of their definitions of evil
Main characters are very similar, both are manipulative and sharp/shrewd, as they try to think their way out of their situation, using this the powers they're given.
lelouch and light are pretty similar and share the same goal.
the main characters seem to be the anatagonists rather than protagonists... and they often, if not sometimes, become "berserk" with what power they have! and they're both bishies >///< also the stories both feature are somewhat inlolving death 0.o
and both series have good soundtracks =]]]
both are great shows, with main characters wanting to change the goal, there are similiarities in the main characters actions however they are still two entirely different people and different shows but most people who like one end up like the other show
if you love yagami light in Death Note then you'll love Lelouch
both of them are main chacters who try to fix the world where people can live happily and to prevail justice
using the special powers and abilities they are given, Lelouch and Light can be less different
Through out the whole series just like in death note it makes your mind go crazy they are are both mind thrillers and makes you think of what outcomes could happen to the characters.
RUN! RUN! SOMEBODY IS KILLING EVERYBODY! Is it right? Is it wrong? You figure it out while watching this! Its amazing how 1 person can change the world with just a little determinating, hard work, and magical powers. Your in for a treat.
They both include two boys with a special power trying to change the world through that power, all the while trying to hide their real identities.
Characters who are very smart, have 2 hot assistants. Plot revolves around crushing people for personal gain. Did I mention the hot assistants?
Both have very complex stories about justifying their worlds.
Take some concepts from Death Note, and add in a lot of mecha action. :P Both have main characters who want to change the world. Very interesting.
Both main characters want to change the world.
Both are smart and strategic.
Both have main characters that want change in the world and use various powers and strategy to obtain their goals.
Both main characters Kira and Zero have special power-not psychical but this ability can change the world if used properly. In exchange for this ability they had to sign a contract. They both want to change the world and both are genius.
A young high school student suddenly gains a mysterious and frightful power from a strange being. Testing, measuring, and finally executing their new abilities, along with all the peril and impacts on the human race, is the journey shared in these two shows.
Well... They both talk about the domination of the world !! MOUWAHAHAHA!!! And they also have both freaks power
both gain a supernatural power and wish to change the world with their new found power and ideals
This two animes are very similar.. with unguessable plots which may even give you a suprise.. Death note has Raito the main character who is very good with tactical strategies like Code Geass's Lelouch.. Both anime rocks.. lol.//
They are both great psychological thrillers that well keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, and even then you might just want more.
Twisted lead protagonist in both series, where both don’t really care about others lives and look to use others to gain something. Both lead characters have exclusively a strange power in Code Geass it’s the power of ultimate Command for Lelouch and Death Note Kira has his this mystical book. Both series have friends that oppose each other and look to kill each other, and have a sort of tragic romance to them as well. Both are dark animes to some extent especially Death note.
If Death note and Gundam had a baby it would be Code Geass, Plot twists, Great writing and similar Protaganists
Both feature heroes that have access to supernatural power, and they both want to create a new world of justice.
Both anime have the main character who wants to change the world for the better, and are very smart although Code Geass is for those that would also like some action, as there are a lot of fights with mecha, where Death Note is more supernatural.
Death Note has wits and planned tactics, whereas Code Geass uses more strategy and is smart in a more military way.
Lelouch and Kira are similar. But just a little.
They both have the same evil protagonist deal. Both Light and Lelouch have a power to help them get whatever they please. However, Light's Death Note is a little more broad, allowing him to kill people without even meeting them, while Lelouch's geass makes him have to look at the person directly in the eye.
Light has a manipulative type of personality once he picked up the Death Note, and when Lelouch got his Geass, he acquired this same type of hidden personality. Both stories widen out with different antagonists and all sorts of different conflict.
They are very interesting overall.
If your a Code Geass fan you should love Death Note as I feel they are both similar character wise. In both, the main character gets a power to assist them in changing the world for the better in their views from a party whom follows them for the duration of the series. While doing so, they both gain followers who support their ideals. While this happens, a force attempt to fight the main character and discover their true identity.
Both resemble a game of chess as the main character fights to knock out all obsticles in their way to have their ideas reality.
The stories of Code Geass and Death Note are similar in many ways. First of all, the main characters of both series want to take over the world by using the powers that they were given. Both Geass and Death Note are used to give people orders, but the power of the Death Note always results in death. Both series are ones that keep you hooked till the last episode in my opinion, and in Code Geass' case, it leaves you with many unanswered questions.
They are both powerful, destructful, and Evil anime i have ever seen. Code Geass
is more destructive and more tactics. The turn arounds in Code Geass are unbelievable. Death Note will just blow your mind out from inside and out. The strategies that goes against eachother are simply amazing. They both rock my socks.
The characters and morals are near identical. Both use a power to take over the world and the people in it. Both main characters names begin with "L". Both fight for the weak, the good and "justice" which for both is an argueable concept in both worlds. The only difference is that Mechs are much more prevalentin Code Geass then in the Death Note universe.
Both anime are based around geniuses that obtain the power to change the world, and do so. It's very entertaining to watch how the plot plays out as their enemies of equal intelligence battle it out in a battle of tactical and strategical thinking. Both are great anime, and are my top two favorite anime.
Its quite obvius why are those two similar. They both have strategic games between a studant with big ideals.
Light "Kira" Yagami and Lelouch "Zero" Lamperouge are very similar characters. Both of them have genius intellects, a supernatural ability with very specific limitations, and a desire to change the world under a false name.
In terms of differences, Code Geass is more fast-paced, and since it is set in a world with giant robots, there are plenty of large-scale action scenes - Lelouch's strategic genius is always pivotal here. It does, however, has fewer mindgames than Death Note - there is no L figure, though there is an "Athrun Zala figure".
Lelouch is less fully evil than Light, with more clear motivations for his acts. Interestingly, he regards himself as a monster while Light regards himself as above morality.
They have similar themes of a genius trying to build his own new world through superior (yet questionable) tactics and superpowers.
The main characters are very similar, both are really smart guys, they hide his real identity, both have an extraordinary and supernatural power given by a powerful entity, and have a really ambitious goal.
Both animes, have a lot of strategic planning and the protagonists want to destroy/kill the evil in the world. And both main characters hide their true identities of what they have committed..
Lelouch is like a more just and less egotistical Kira from Death Note. C.C. is his Ryuk. It's a great series and, unlike Death Note, the ending is satisfying.
In death note, you have light yagami; an excellant star student who is bored out of his mind. he finds a notebook that kills people when you write their name in it, with it he trys to rid the world of all evil. In code geass:lelouch of the rebellion, you have lelouch lamperouge;an intelligent student, who wants to make a world where his little sister, nanally can find happiness. He recieves a power from a girl named C.C, a power called geass; he uses this power to destory his fathers, the emperor of the holy brittanian empire.
Death Note's main character has a similar power to the Code Geass main character.
Both of the main character's enemies have a different sense of justice, (Suzaku and L). And...both of the main characters do alot of planning, thinking and have a great strategic mind.
Both feature anti-hero main characters who are brilliant strategists. However, Code Geass is more action-oriented, whereas Death Note is more cerebral.
It has many of the same themes as Death Note, and Light's method of creating the new world is, while much more drastic, similar to Lelouch's morals-- to get what you want, you have to bloody your hands a little.
Both series have a villain/anti-hero protagonist with a supernatural power to control people in some limited way, and a hero/anti-villain antagonist. The protagonists are friends with the antagonists, and the antagonists' goal is to uncover the faceless, nameless alter-ego of the protagonist. The protagonists are also pitted against their families. Both shows make frequent use of miniature climaxes to go with short and simple story arcs.
To begin with, Light and Lelouch are the same character with two exceptions: Light is athletic but Lelouch is not, and they have polar ideologies. The comparison is endless between the two and includes several spoilers, so I won't go into it, but even most of the major events that happen to the characters are the same. The important thing is that Light wants nothing but justice even at the cost of freedom, and Lelouch is vice versa.
The two anime resemble each other with the main character obtains an abnormal power that could help him to change the world. In both anime, the main characters use this power to achieve good intention, but in Code Geass, the goal is for other's goods while in in Death Note, the goal is for the main charater's own good. So, you can experience a different view of using power in Death Note, and you can still feel the intense of the plot which is created from the battle between people with amazing deduction and persuasive arguments.
If you liked see Yagami Light trying to be the new World God. You will love to see Lelouch Lamprouge trying to conquer the World
While Light can kill people by writing names on the death note, Lelouch can control the mind of anyone with only visual contact.Both has as protagonists the "villain" of the story.
Basicly the same thing but in a different environment
Lelouch from Code Geass and Yagami Light from Death Note are similar characters. They both obtain a certain power and they both attempt to reshape the world with it to make it as they believe it should be.
In both of the series, there's is one main character who's very smart and tries to change the wordl in it's own way.
something what Death Note doesn't have, is that Code Geass is more about the main characters private life as well, and Death Note isn't. But if you don't like transformer like robots, than this might not be as good as Death Note, but still, try it.
Although the enviroment and setting of both are quite different the stories are a bit the same. Both main characters recieve a power and use this to change the world. They both are really cool, but I myself prefer Death Note.
Both have anti- heroes. Have a smart person trying to change the world. If you liked one, you will probably like the other
I think they're really the same..i remember often saying that is so much like DN and yeah this is too.. Except the robot technology in CG the mind games, strategies, aims and main male characters are very likely to each other (as these 128people said:))). If you liked CG, you will surely like DN but i'm not sure of vice versa.
they are similar in the whole "change the world thing" and both really great animes imo.
because the main charictar in the animes is a bad gay and they have close abilities.
Main char's use of intellect to think logically and achieve their maliciou goals
Character wise there extremely simmilar, Lelouch and light the egotistical protaganists of the series along with Schniezel and L the masterminds trying to thwart their plans.
Both are simmilar plotwise with both Lelouch and Light wanting the world to bow before them, with a justfull cause in mind but questionable methods of achieving this ideal world.
anyways if you liked Deathnote go out there and watch Geass.
The plot of the stories are completely different but the simularties between the characters Yagami Light and Lamperouge Lelouch are uncanny as they are ordinary students untill they come into contact with a supernatural power that they use to change the world in the name of justic they are both incredibly intelligent and both hide there identities behind the masks of Zero and Kira. There rivals prove to be a difficult match but have or gain a close relationship with their enemies.
Both Lelouch and Light want to change the world, and obtain a power that allows them to do this: with Lelouch the geass, and Light the Death Note. Lelouch and Light are both insanely smart, as well as manipulative.
Both Series are about "Good" superheroes who try to make world a better place,though they have diffirent attitudes toward it.
both Lelouch and Light have some inhuman mystical power and are masterminds,who try to change the whole world.
both are a must see for any fan of anime.
Both feature a protagonist who gets some supernatural power and uses it to take a strong stance against society, bending the rules to suit themselves and letting nothing get in their way.
Both Main Characters are very strategic and smart. Although the stories are very different ,there is a great deal of similarities such as powers which aid them to their goals.
The main characters are very similar, and each anime has plot twist out the but crack.
The main character, who wants to implement his vision of the world, systematically striving for success and finally ... You must see it
Both anime have a man acquired powers using them against "the government" both psychological genres.
Similar plot with tons of twists and great character development. Awesome strategy and crazy smart people. Also super powers involved; notebook in Death Note and Geass power in Code Geass.
Both are like a chess game. Light and Lelouch have a magical power (Light - Death Note, Lelouch - Geass) and they both want to change the world; Light freeing the world of criminals, Lelouch wanting Area 11 to become Japan again. They both take on aliases to cover themselves (Lelouch - Zero, Light - Kira, but Light just accepts the alias). The two protagonists act more like an antagonist. Suzaku, Lelouch's rival, is more of a protagonist, and same goes for Lawliet, Light's rival. After Light and Lelouch gets the power, the people who gave him the power follows. There are also other users of the power the character has. So, basically, Code Geass is Death Note, but with mechas (Knightmares).
Both series has a similar way trying to solve the problem that they have or what they want to do. They both have an artistic power they use and manipulate people.
They both have main characters that are very similar: both are intelligent, cunning, a little bit twisted, and basically antihero. Both the main characters have acquired an exclusive power that they can use to fulfill their ideals, and they would use any means to do so.
Both involve highly intelligent students who receive powers from supernatural figures in which they use to change the world. Both of these students possess an infamous alter ego to captivate the world with.
After 204 recommendations I don't think there's anything left to be said about the similarities.
So don't mind me, just making this the 205th rec.
Cute, intelligent guys trying to change the world. Both are dark series though but with very good story lines!
For me, Code Geass is almost as good as Death Note.
Perfect scenario, great characters... a MUST SEE
Code Geass is like a hybrid of Death Note and Gundam if you ask me. Lot's of mech action and a character who enjoys playing god with his newfound abilities. Death Note and Code Geass both have main characters who possess a god complex. They also have the power to change the world, and they both intend to use it to justify that end. If you enjoyed Death Note, then it's quite possible you'd like Code Geass as well. Unless you're the type who's not into mechs, I don't really see any other deterrent for you to watch this.
Both anime are similar because both main characters plan to change the world and by doing this, they later turn into bad guys and not the good guys. They both have something that orders somemone to do a certain thing.
Both have charcters that are mad at the world in some way and wish to change it. They also both get a god-like power from a mysterious charcter as well as...well you would'nt want me to spoil it for you now would you? ^_^
Both series have the genius guy trying to make thing his way, both are very intelligent and intresting.
The main character in both anime have a very particular/supernatural power.
Both feature a protagonist that acquires a special power at the beginning and they both gain craving for more power.
Both series involve intelligent characters given the ability to hand out what they consider "justice".
They're both very similar in that the main characters are both very intelligent, and both do what they believe is just, even though the rest of the world begs to differ.
The only major difference is that Code Geass has giant robots involved named Knightmares, as where Death Note does not.
A very inteligent plot that will keep you waching and wanting for more.
As many will tell you; the main character of either series may as well be the same person. Watch as a single teenage boy, unexpectedly gifted with a great power draws in followers and leads them in the name of justice; only to fulfill his own agenda. Changing the world is easy when you control life and death.
B'cause it's about strategy.....
and the main chara wants to make a new world with their mystical power......
Death note and Code Geass both focus on the main protagonist being drove by idealistic ideas of the "perfect" world. Light Yagami and Lelouch Lamperouge also share similiar personality traits, however Lelouch's sense of justice is more justified then Light's.
Same sort of plot (reshaping the world). Lelouch and Light are very similar characters, both have an alias (Kira and Zero). Both top of the class and have a double life. Both awesome shows :)
Both characters think almost the same. They are both smart. They both start off with good intentions.
Light = Lelouch; they both are geniuses and they want to change the world, regardless of the methods. Both full of drama and suspense, both are dark.
In both Code Geass and Death Note, an incredibly intelligent teenage boy seeks to change the world with a secret, hidden, absolute power that very few know about. They differ in that Code Geass is much funnier while Death Note is much more serious, and that Lelouch uses his power for good, while Light is generally more selfish, especially towards the end. If you like Death Note, you'll DEFINITELY like Code Geass, but the same is not necessarily true in reverse. I personally prefer Code Geass by a lot, but both are awesome. I watched both series in dubs.
They both focus, in some way or another, in "justice". The desire to create a better world is one of the forces which make the two protagonists move forward, using any necessary means to accomplish their goals, both aided by some kind of mysterious supernatural power.
255 recommends for code geass and death note? let's another one! it's not like we've seen this a hundred times already!!!
Both have main chacters who use changing the world to make it just as an excuse to kill millions for their own petty reasons: for Light it's to relieve boredom and for Lelouche it's for revenge. They both also start off with only their wits and a godlike power along with a mysterious helper who gave them that power for some price. That godlike power also drives both of them a little insane. They both also would put their plans at risk only for the sake of saving thier little sister. Later they also both gain a secret identity so they can lead a group to help them conquer the world.
That secret identity is focused on more in dn than in cg. In dn the other charcters besides the primary protagonist and antagonist play a very small role and so often remain undeveloped and one dimentional. Lelouche is also by far a more human, sympathetic and complex character who often shows emotions such as love, guilt and compassion.
Main characters have a similar demeanor and there is the same theme of what is justice? The conflict between Lelouch and Suzaku is very similar to the conflict between Light and L.
Not my favorite anime, but highly influenced by Death Note, and would appeal to fans of the DN series.
Death note is often praised for it's superb intellect and twisting plot, this is definitely also the case in code Geass. As for the main characters, both of them aren't your everyday hero. You'll know what i mean after you've watched them both. In short Code Geass has everything what Death note has except for these aspects: the atmosphere in code Geass is less dark than in Death note, Code Geass includes quite a bit of mecha action, the ending in CD is, in my personal opinion, better than DN's ending.
Both anime's are about a guy who wants to change the world. Both are genious and they're thinking about every move, ebery time :)
they are bothe psychological genre. The main characters in both anime are stargetic and anticipated the enemy they are against moves. Both anime are intese and once you get into it you will be sitting on the edge of your seat
smart man (with name start in L :P) that use a unique power given to him to "solve" morally ambiguous "problem"
A highly intelligent, politically minded teenage boy (with a superiority complex) who feels a strong sence of injustice in the world is granted the 'power' to make a difference - it's up to the viewer to decide whether or not he's a hero or villian.
Both have a government theme.
Both feature cutesie, not to street-wise, female leads with complex backgrounds.
Both anime's are pretty much a fantasy set up - mecha's and death gods are unlikey to come into our lives. ;)
Despite what a lot of people seem to be saying on here, Lelouch and Light and completely different characters. It's pretty easy to see that if you've watched both animes. However, that being said, Code Geass reminded me of Death Note a lot within the first couple of episodes. Both series pose major questions of morality on good verses evil, whether or not the means justify the end, etc. While not as serious, Code Geass does manage to have an extremely serious ending though it didn't compare to the ending of Death Note.
Basically the same protagonist cept the one in code geass is quite a lot less of a creep
it has more explosions too x)
As they both are about a boy (roughly the same age) who wishes to changed the world with a special power they obtained from somebody else. They manipulate countless people to form the world that they wish and both shows are very interesting.
If you liked Death Note, you will love Code Geass. I really enjoyed Death Note, but was completely blown away by Code Geass. Both main characters gain the power to change the world, both are driven by their own goals and ideals, and both start a journey filled with twists and turns and the characters' own views of what justice truly is.
both revolve around a smart guy trying to change the world for the "better" but end up facing many challenges on their journey.
Both of them are good and contains many plot twisting evets.
The same way to think they are on the top of the world and rebelion against the wrong system that they live in, mental wars and brain utility to win and not just physical strength.
Similar mastermind protagonists (each with a special ability which can change the world), schemes and plots are set up and the ending is almost identical.
Though while Deathnote has the fantasy/fairytale touch to it, Code Geass is based on giant robots and capital wars.
The main chracter want also to change the world with unique methods, also a drama, just watch it^^
Both anime are very strategic anime and has the most unexpected plot turns I have ever seen. You never know what is going to happen next. There are many differences, like Code Geass has mecha that Death Note doesn't have, but if you liked one of these you will definitely like the other. In both anime you are unsure if you should side with the main character or not. Both main charachters in both anime try to make the world a better place, but are their methods correct?
In both stories the main character is an ambitious, intelligent young man who gets hold of a special ability and decides to change the world. Battles of great brains coming!
Alrighty, now I know the MAL public is probably sick and tired of reading the same recommendation over 200 times, but one more can't hurt, right?
Well, let's take a look at the similarities:
-The main characters are attempting to defeat a certain power without revealing their identity.
-Chess is mentioned often.
-Both main characters have a special power that helps them conceal their identity.
-Both main characters have -supposedly- high IQ's.
-Yaoi jokes are commonly made about both animes.
it is simular because each has it's secret
Main characters are totaly the same: confident, clever and arrogant; both have supernatural power, fight for some sort of Justice and hide their true identity. And both have to cooperate with a girl they don't want to ^^
The series are very similar too, a little like a chess game, although CG is less serious.
An "anti hero" works for the supposed good of the innocent and weak, but using unjust means to bring down evil.
Like in Death note, there is a idden criminal that is a genius and on the same time they are the main character.
You will se that in both, you see very skilfull plans.
I think you will like
The main reason why Code Geass and Death Note are compared so often is Light's uncanny resemblance to Geass's Lelouch. Both gain an ability by accident(or by fate if you want to call it that) that can change the world. Both are very intelligent, witted, manipulative, and have a twisted sense of justice that they attempt to justify. The main difference is that Code Geass has mechs and is a bit more colorful while in Death Note, Light is a bit more clever and emotional.(The cleverness factor is up for debate, as many people will argue that Lelouch is more clever than Light) Another important key difference is that while Light is a more overall emotional character, he has almost no emotional attachment whatsoever to any other human.(His father was minimal and ultimately just a pawn in his game) Lelouch, is just as manipulative as Light, but does show a bit more of a charasmatic nature and his unconditional love towards his sister in the beginning of the show illustrates that perfectly.
Another bonus of Code Geass is that it's ending and second season is MUCH better and well done then Death Note's.
Overall, If you like Death Note, then you are almost SURE to enjoy Code Geass. Geass has a bit more humor and action, may not be AS psychological, but it's pretty damn close.
Both are psychological animes, both have protagonists that have goals that they try and get to through means some dislike, you either love or you hate both protagonists, and both have their own harem moments.
physiological and strategy terms
They're both about a guy that seems evil that is trying to repair the world in thought-out, strategic steps.
Both with the protagonist obtaining a power that can kill or manipulate people. They both attempt to achieve "world peace" while they hide their identities from their friends, family, and the world.
Code geusshas a very similar idea to Deathnote, both great show have similar use of Psychology to portray there intentions. Both incorperate a secretive ability they use to create change, both got theres abilities from a person thats immortalish, both abilities have strings attached. Same things happen to the main character at the end of the series. Both eppin shows (must see's in my opinion) GOGOGO!
Two shows about teen geniuses attempting to alter the world, for the better of course, even if that requires swimming across a river of blood. Both end beautifully, and even after seeing them both several times, they bring a joyful tear to my eye with the elegant finallies.
They both have intelligent main characters which obtain some sort of strange power from abnormal people or creatures. They also have enemies who tries to take them down and the main character both have a secret identity like
death note : light=kira Code geasse: lelouch=Zero
Both the main characters play the role of the "evil" and they conceal their identities using a pseudonym.
The both are awesome , same object and same thinking , and the both heros are intilligent againt reval intilligent !
There both students who are tired of the world they live in and they get a special power with whom they use to change the world. They both get known with a certain alias across the globe making them famous and their real identity is unknown. This anime is SO similar.. seriously if you liked death note and vice versa. WATCH BOTH.
Both main charaters are extreamly smart and plan way ahead.
Lelouch (Code Geass ) and Light (Death Note) both want to change the world with their special powers. The animes have the same kind of ''chess games'' going on.
Both Death Note and Code Geass are very morally ambiguous, and focus on a main character that obtains a supernatural ability and, with that ability, deliberately demonizes himself in order to remake the world into a better place. Both anime are heavily reliant on the strategic interactions between the protagonist and antagonists to provide tension and rising action; both anime are more intellectual than action-oriented. Both anime also have fairly high production values, and though that's not necessarily the point, it is a nice plus.
Both feature an extreme intelligent person, which posses supernatural powers.
In both main characters are gaining super power. They're trying to make world a better place at all cost. Light is very similiar to Lelouche. Both are sharp, logically thinking students, and they have aspiration to be God, instead of being students. Plots are... I don't want to spoil, so watch it :)
1) The main character are protagonists bent on changing the world.
2) Both are assoicated perhaps with a bit of politics or businesses.
3) There are limitations and rules of the two tools used in both this anime (deathnote and Geass)
4) The personality and the intentions of the two main characters, Lelouch and Light, are similar.
5) Rating wise, the Code Geass story plot, enjoyment, and suspense equals that of Death note
6) The characters had possession over supernatural devices.
super super catchy anime that will leave you trying to decide which is better just trust me 0_0
It's another psychological thriller where a young man with high ideals gains power to change the world, both just great anime.
Another good anime(not the manga) it is pretty much death note with mecha which sounds very weird but it works.
Genius guys trying to create a ideal world with some unworldly help~!!!
Geniuses fighting against each other. This comparison has been made so many times...
WATCH DEATH NOTE! AND R1 AND R2!
-Similar protagonist: Lelouch is smart, deceptive, and cunning like Light. He also seeks to make the world a better place through questionable means. Lelouch, however, is much more human than the cold emotionless "Kira,"and has his weaknesses, making him a much more relate-able character.
-Characters in general better than in DN: for me, only L and his successors really stood out (well, Light did too, but I didn't like him -.-)
-Story won't let you go! Awesome plot twists/cliffhangers at end of many episodes that leave you wanting more
Underlying story, however, is very different.
-CG: More focus on action/strategy. Didn't see any mecha in death note
-CG has high school comedy, DN has a darker tone though both are pretty dark
-DN: abuse of power= bad. CG: powerlessness = bad.
Both are awesome!!
This anime has almost the same concept as Death Note: Desire to control the world and make it a better place in a subjective manner.
Both main characters keep you guessing.
And there both cunning.
Both anime are quite awesome. There is a guy who is very intelligent and thinks carefully about every move which he makes to achieve something. There are supernatural powers and both anime include death.
The main characters on both series have the same impact and the impression of being evil, also world domination is another common point. Also there are supernatural factors and cute supporting characters..
Both Code Geass and Death Note features main characters who want to create a "more perfect" world by using their abnormal powers and amazing intellect. Also, the main characters from these series have an "arch rival" who thinks their way of accomplishing his goals is injust.
Both pyschological, mindfuckery with ideology being twisted and the ultimate question if the end justifies the means
In both anime the main character has a very strong sense of justice and wants to put a stop to the evil in the world. Both are also extremely smart and intelligent when it comes to fulfilling their goals. They both obtain a supernatural power given to them by equally supernatural people. Lots of drama, strategics, action, and good looking characters (especially CG) make these anime a definite on my must watch list.
Both have an intelligent Protagonist that must conquer the world. Both story's have a-lot of hidden tricks and surprises and they both seem to keep you at the edge of your seat.
Both Death Note and Code Geass is about a teenager who wants to change the current world with the help of a mystical power they posses and learn how to controll as the series continues!
Both deal with an anti hero who wants to rule the world. They both have extra abilities that puts them over their rivals. And they're insane. Enjoy
There are both awesome and Light and Lelouch are pretty similar.
Both anime shows a intellectual person with supernatural power, who wants to create a world based on his own sense of justice.
Both contain a main character whose in high school. The main characters gain a supernatural power and try to make a "better" world.
Both shows feature situations that are compared to a chess match. In both shows the main character is one of the most intelligent students in the world and receives a power that may change the world from an immortal being, they get followers to help them reaching their goals of changing the world. Both shows have similar stories from beginning to the end.
Code Geass is Death Note meets Gundam SEED. Nothing more needs to be said.
They both include logical thinking and makeing a mistake means their own demise.
These two series have similar protagonist: Both Light and Lelouch are extremely gifted students, and both receive a mysterious power from a benefactor who always stays nearby. However, Code Geass's Lelouch's problem is that in the year 2017 the Holy Britainnian Empire invaded Japan, and Lelouch aims to remove them from power in order to create a better world for his younger sister, Nunnally. Great cast.
In my mind, Code Geass= Death Note and Gundam put in a blender.
A great series for fans of both!
i think death note and code geass are alike because they both surround a young male lead who has great logic skills.Both lelouch and light want to change the world for the better.Both also attain a power that can help them in doing so;lelouch the power of geass and light,the death note.
A genius teenage boy acquires a special power that he uses to try and change the world. This part is incredibly similar, but the rest is fairly different. If you want another show with the same premise, by all means, watch the other one. The actual feel for the shows is quite different, however. Death Note feels much more mature and darker than Code Geass, and Code Geass puts more of an emphasis on fanservice and the harem aspect. I personally think Death Note is a lot better, but it just depends which kind of show is more for you.
Code Geass and Death Note are both shows of cunning brilliance to be able to out-think your enemy. In both shows the main characters have to stay a step ahead of the enemy to keep from being exposed.
how their brains work is amazing! best animes ever!
Code geass has one super smart guy~ ZERO ~
Death note has a super smart guy as well~ Light ~
They both are a 10/10 and the plot is very strategic and well thought out.
Watching one you just have to think about how much these are similar. Both are about mastermind boys with superpowers trying to make the world better or how they think it would be better.
Plot and characters are very similar
By the way of strategy to overcome your opponents.
Both main characters share the goal of wanting to change the world. Both shows have suspense, action, and violence.
The plot for both anime are similar- Both want to create a new and better world but are unable to until they encounter someone(CG)/find a book(death note) and receive the an unbelievable power, one to control anyone(CG) and one to kill anyone(death note). Despite the similarities in these animes i found code geass to be more enjoyable. Code geass has a somewhat complex plot and is somewhat hard to
understand and is only enjoyable if you actually understand what's happening but if you can understand. Also watch the second season of Code geass- way better than the first season MUST WATCH!!!!!!
Charismatic, morally gray protagonist.
Very close type of mind game(even though death note is better in it) where main character have a super-natural power with some restriction.
Both feature extremely resourceful protagonists who hope to make the world a better place, and who have the cunning to do it. Both feature the use of strategy as a central plot element. The difference is that Code Geass doesn't go downhill.
Mastermind plan with everything 'under control' full of action and excitement
Light is a smart kid, ridding the world of 'evil' as he increasingly gains power. Power that was handed to him by a 'supernatural force'. Lelouch is doing he same thing, but for different reasons. A lot of suspense and strategy on both parts. It keeps you thinking.
-Human gains supernatural power from a non-human
-Non-human is obsessed with a human food
-Goes by an alias
-Fights for justice
Both series have main characters with genius like intelligence
both series are about making the ideal world - code geass is making the ideal world by rebelling against britania and death note is making the ideal world by killing all bad people in the world.
Main characters are very similar, same basic story, both very dark, and both have a never ending fight for justice
If you love death note, you will love code geass - hangyaku no lelouch AND code geass hangyaku no lelouch R2 which is the sequel. Both of the series uses logic, and understanding. IT is both about using brains to take over something or some place. Plus there is a HUGE amount of suspense as yo uwill find yourself glued to your computer screen trying to find out what happens next. but, code geass isn't as dark and mysterious as death note, so WATCH IT
Both anime include a deep psychological plot where the protagonist tries to establish his goal in order to change the world. Also, both protagonists have similar character traits in the sense that they maintain a alter ago known to the world while they hide their true personal identities as students, and that they both will do practically anything to achieve their goal even if it means to kill the enemy with their unknown supernatural power.
Both series follow a strong-minded protaganist who has their own sense of justice and wants to create a better world. They both attempt to achieve this through supernatural means that they have been gifted with.
The main difference between the two is that Code Geass is a mecha anime, whereas Death Note isn't.
Both main characters are geniuses with a power to control the will of other people. Both anime are amazing in story and overall concept, as well as the way the characters think and act. In both of these anime you will feel amazed out how both Lelouch and Light think.
The main character is given a power which he uses to his advantage.
These 2 series are a lot alike. Lelouch and Light both find an amazing power, have kinda the same goal, they are both geniuses. The main difference is that while Death Note refers to the current world, Code Geass takes place in the future. In my opinion, Code Geass is actually even more amazing as Death Note!!!
People who enjoyed Death Note should absolutely, without-a-doubt watch Code Geass and vice versa. They are similar both in plot, character development, tone, and even philosophical merit; and anyone who thoroughly enjoyed one should love the other.
Both deal with protagonists who are essentially megalomaniacs, obtaining otherworldly powers from a supernatural being, which they then use to change the world to their liking. Both are considered to be highly intelligent and excellent liars, employing these tools to defeat enemies who believe their rules and goals to be immoral or against the status quo. Both characters employ aliases which become known worldwide, rarely revealing themselves even to their allies.
A central and interesting theme in both of these shows is the struggle between an equal but opposite force which is manifested by a close friend/ally/rival. The bond between the two forces is perhaps the greatest factor that propels both plots forward, literally and emotionally.
Both series, while being fast-paced to the point of addictiveness, deal with complex psychological and philosophical issues: specifically, should one person have the power (or use the power) to change the world for the better, especially at the expense of others lives and freedom. Since both of the characters of megalomaniacs, it complicates the morality questions even further and makes for very compelling plots and character development.
Both protagonists are seeking to rid the world of evil, though being slightly evil themselves. Through contracts of sort, both obtain supernatural powers (Lelouch = eye, Light = notebook). Through their overpowering intelligence, both are able to plan out very successful tactics to achieve their goals. The protagonists have to lead a double life as a student, and have to high their identities from their friends, family, etc.
Both of the leading characters want to do good things, but are a bit evil. Both want to change the world and make it good, and they get special powers to achieve that goal. Both are a bit comedic sometimes but have a very mature and serious story. There's a good message in both too. I really recommend to watch them!
both animes are d fight of brains which makes u glued to ur seat..well in code geass its mecha, and in death note its shinigami(death god)..both are epic series.
These are very similar as others have noted in particular the lead character, the strategic thinking, trying to outwit the opponent and so on. In terms of differences (since there are so many similarities), death note is closer to the "detective" genre whereas Code Geass is science-fiction.
Both teenagers who are "superior" to their peers, who get a power in which they both try to make a huge change to the world. The only difference is Light yagami from death note is morally wrong while lelouch from code geass is doing it for the morally right reasons
Similar way of presenting, similar characters, different setting.
The first half of death note plotwise is almost identical. Only difference is that code geass maintains this great plot, whereas death note fades
Both are extremely clever and intriguing. Both main characters are geniuses and attempt to fight evil (the rest of the world).
Both character in the anime are smart as they think a lot. People around them assume they are good, but really they are evil killing people that get in their way.
Similar character psychology. Lelouch and Light are very similar.
In both animes, the story is about a protagonist who is fighting for what the believe in which renders on most part more towards the darker side (more villainous side than most protagonist). In Code Geass, Lelouch is very similar to Light were they side on the dark side but because of the unique stories it binds us to actually support these villainous roles as it is almost a form of justice. Also some psychological/mind games are involved in both animes. Definitely a must watch anime if you loved Death Note.
They have similar lead characters (Light Yagami, L and Lelouch) who are intelligent. They both involve mindgames between adversaries. They are both excellently well-scripted anime with a mind-boggling element of slow revelation of plot.
Code Geass is essentially Death Note. Replace Light with Lelouch, The Death Note with Geass, Ryuk with C.C. and add more action scenes in fighting Robots. However, one thing differs and that is how both characters react to each their powers. While Light immediately believes in achieving a god complex with his power, Lelouch uses his power for good until the power corrupts him and the people around him. In my opinion, Lelouch becomes a more interesting character this way and more likable than Light, and I trust me I do like Light.
Death Note and Code Geass were have similarities due to darker, older teen audiences, supernatural power, and fighting for justice. Here is the example for characters.
Lelouch (Zero) = Light (Kira) - Both were main protagonists, using alter ego and persona, using supernatural weapon (Notebook for Kira and Geass power for Zero), going for justice, they are anti-heroes, and also has younger sister.
Suzaku = L - Both were antagonists, support for main protagonist, and well as 2nd main protagonist.
C.C. = Ryuk - Both were working for main protagonist, they're using a power and spell, and they love their favorite food (Pizza for C.C. and Apple for Ryuk).
Kallen = Misa - Both were love with main protagonist and serve for main protagonist.
Unfortunately, both anime were banned in China due to offensively, inappropriate, and possibly strong mature rating.
Both protagonists experience a twist in their personalities after a chance encounter. Although the concept of technology and shinigamis are different, both anime also have to do with the power of the eyes. Both anime have a sinister mood, and both are epic.
Same kind of main character.
Both involve an arogant and intellectually superior student inheriting a godlike power which he intends to use to change the world for the better. However, be warned that while Lelouch seeks to change the world for the sake of his sister and as the good of others at heart, thus rendering him rather noble and justified, Light is only after his own agenda for his sake alone and will use and trash anyone who gets in his way or makes the mistake of trusting him.
They have similiar protagonists, who both are intelligent and trying to make the world better place by using strong methods.
The way in wich the plot is created is similar. The main character is an awesome strategist as Light Yagami or L are.
Both of there stories have a main character that is young but extremely intellegent. At first Light wants to rid the world of bad people, but becomes a psycho-maniac. As with Lelouch he only wants to gives his diabled younger sister a fair chance in life, but soon realizes he isn't the only one with a good reason to fight The Empire of Britannia, but still he has his crazy moments too.
Both the series main characters are really intelligent and use strategy to gain what they want, the art and BGM as well as the music from both of them are excellent and both the main characters do what they do in order to have what a just world.
Code Geass and Death Note are both about a high school student who is out to change the world for the better by using a mysterious power. However, Code Geass is more about politics and discrimination, while Death Note which is about crime. They are both excellent shows.
they are both very strategic animes
while death note is far more gruesome code geass is by far the better anime
En ambas historias nos presentan protagonistas estudiantes de diecisiete años con una inteligencia y una habilidad para pensar envidiables. De parte de un ser misterioso reciben un extraño poder anormal, con el cual, usando maniobras friamente calculadas, planean cambiar al mundo como se lo conoce actualmente, ocultándole a todos quienes son en verdad utilizando un pseudónimo y desafiando a la ley si es necesario. Durante el desarrollo de las tramas se conoce a otros personajes con este poder, y estos pueden ser tanto compañeros como enemigos. Y a pesar de que ambos protagonistas demuestran ser personas frias y decididas, llega el momento en que muestran su lado humano y podemos conocer sus sentimientos más profundos.
It's similar because of story, in both character is evil and wants justicy.
They both have guys who think they are doing the right thing but really they're hurting the people around them. Also Code Geass is a little bit hard to I dont know, umm understand at the start.
If you liked one you'll like the other :)
The main characters are the same, both have a secret identity and they're being chased by the police/military.
They both have an antagonist,or whoever believes he's doing the wrong thing, as the main character thinking of ways to rule the world and get the want. The only difference is that code geass is based on more futuristic things like robotic machines and such compared to just a notebook.
Pretty much a no-brainer.
Code Geass is Death Note with mechs and a sense of humor.
Both shows feature young men and their ambitions to change their corrupt worlds through morally questionable means bestowed upon them by the supernatural.
Both these animes involve trying to find someone with a strange power.
they are similar because they both have a killer which no one know abot him/her except for him/her and someone else.
Well both have facts about life which are true. The main characters in both are doing something that they feel is right, but not everyone thinks that way. Both Lelouch and Light has a girl following them.
Both has badass genius main characters. They have also sidekicks
These two animes are similar because of the main characters who share the same villianous qualities. They both seem to want to create a better world with their new powers that they required, the Death Note from Ryuk and the Geass from C.C.
Light and Lelouch's names both start with a L :P and they seem to be very intelligent, planning every attack by using their pawns precisely. Both of them have their own followers and share a tight bond with at least one of them, Light and Misa and Lelouch and Kallen.
Also they both appear to have their identity a secret with only a handful of people knowing and use a God-like name to be known as, Kira being Light and Zero being Lelouch.
They both tell the stories characters trying to reach a similar goal.
Both of these characters (Lelouch and Raito) have a special power and many obstacles in their way.
Both are extremely entertaining masterpieces.
The main character, Lelouch, is like Light from Death Note, but better (AKA he's not an asshole). Both protagonists are antiheros, both gain a unique power, and both are clever, popular, manipulative schoolboys.The whole series shares some themes with Death Note; 'what is justice?', 'what means are morally acceptable in a fight for the common good?', 'If you had a power to change the world, how far would you go?'.
The main difference would have to be that Lelouch actually has feelings for his friends and loved ones, whereas Light is willing to sacrifice anyone and everyone at the drop of the hat. In addition, Code Geass is a mecha anime with more humor, a brighter color scheme, and (very little) eechi. Death Note is a detective show with a subdued color scheme and very little comedy. Another notable difference is that Light is a idealist and Lelouch is a realist; and on the other side we have L as a realist and Suzaku as an idealist.
They're both thought-provoking shows that have you on the line between supporting the main character and supporting the people trying to take them down. If you liked Death Note I think you would enjoy Code Geass, and vice versa.
Both use strategic methods to accomplish a specific goals.
similarities between the two
-Light and Lelouch are similar characters
-both series have interesting opinions about justice
-exiting storyline with many unexpected turn of events
Both anime are rather similar-the difference is that Light wants to save the world because he thinks it's rotting, while Lelouch wants to save the world for his little sister.
And if Kira=Zero, and and Sayu=Nunnaly, then it all evens out!
The plot is the same the main characters are both evil but the see as justice the both get powers in death note the guy get's a DEATH NOTE in Code Geass the guy get's a eye technique with both powers they kill the enemies and other people that is their justice.
For obvious reasons. Both Protagonists are not necessarily considered a hero of any kind. In other words, their not the "good" guys, but I wouldn't really call them anti-heroes either. However, the plots and setting are fundamentally different. Death Note is placed in a modern, realistic setting. On the other hand, Code Geass is set in a futuristic world where America does not exist and british imperialism has taken over a large part of the Earth. Well, the best way to look at it is a imperialistic setting-- three major powers-- European(EU), British(Britannia), and Chinese(Chinese Confederation). Unlike Light, Lelouch actually has some redeeming qualities. For one, he's willing to sacrifice himself for the betterment of the world. Additionally, he deeply cares about his sister, Nunally, and is willing to do almost anything for her. Both are geniuses and around the same age. Both change the world-- arguably both for the better. The music in both series are great. Unlike Death Note, the second series/part of Code Geass is very good. Death note went downhill after L was killed imo. Plus, CG has a lot of likable --Loyd, Cecile, Shirley, CC, etc-- characters as well as characters I just want to choke... Euphemia/Nina *coughs* If you haven't watched either and watch anime. All I can say is-- what hole have you been living in? =/ Hope this helped.
It concerns justice somehow. Also there's a protagonist that does different actions that differ to each person. Lelouch is Zero and Light is Kira, but know one knows their true identity except a few.
Main characters have similar thoughts and feelings
Oddly enough, my discovery of Code Geass began with a magazine article comparing the two protagonists of Death Note and CG. The premise of these masterful series is completely unrelated, but the magazine devoted two pages that covered the similarities between the two main characters (Lelouch and Light), pointing out their overzealous behaviour, wicked intelligence, and anti-hero themes.
Top tier anime at its finest. Brilliant plots, well written characters, and critical acclaim are what you'll find in both anime. Hell, the desire to bring viewers to both shows inspired me to make my first recommendation!
Like Death Note, Code Geass keeps you on the edge of your seat! You keep finding yourself wondering what will happen next. It has many plot twists and with a touch of the supernatural.
Code geass and death note are increadibly similar.The star of the show is an anti-hero meaning his goals are good but his methods are harsh and crude altough i think that lellouch wasnt that much evil because he was doing evrything for his little sister and his way of always protecting the weak and you cant change the world with out alot of deaths as many people know.In death note however the main character tries to become god simply because he is twisted thats the difference between character and plot also dont let the fact that there is meccha in code geass lead you to believe that you will not like it because i cant watch anything with meccha in it but code geass is still my favourite anime,
People who enjoyed Death Note should absolutely, without-a-doubt watch Code Geass and vice versa. They are similar both in plot, character development, tone, and even philosophical merit; and anyone who thoroughly enjoyed one should love the other.
Both deal with protagonists who are essentially megalomaniacs, obtaining otherworldly powers from a supernatural being, which they then use to change the world to their liking. Both are considered to be highly intelligent and excellent liars, employing these tools to defeat enemies who believe their rules and goals to be immoral or against the status quo. Both characters employ aliases which become known worldwide, rarely revealing themselves even to their allies.
A central and interesting theme in both of these shows is the struggle between an equal but opposite force which is manifested by a close friend/ally/rival. The bond between the two forces is perhaps the greatest factor that propels both plots forward, literally and emotionally.
Both series, while being fast-paced to the point of addictiveness, deal with complex psychological and philosophical issues: specifically, should one person have the power (or use the power) to change the world for the better, especially at the expense of others lives and freedom. Since both of the characters of megalomaniacs, it complicates the morality questions even further and makes for very compelling plots and character development.
its fast-pace intense story about a high school boy who gets a power, and is determined to change the world.
Both of the main character start with being a normal high school student but later on got the power to change the world as they want it. They are rebelling against something, in code geass it's against Britain. And in Death Note the police and the law. Both got a evil laugh and i bet that you will really like both show.
The two main male characters think their act is justice, while they both have a rival to compete against their opinions. Also there are other similar characters.
because light yagami and lelouch are aiming for a better world by killing.
Both series are suspensful and have a main character that is trying to obtain ultimate power to control the world or people in some way or form. In Death Note, it was through the power of the Shinigami. In Code Geass, it was through the power of Geass granted by C.C. Although one takes place in everyday life and another is supposed to be set in the future, both have a similar concept and structure.
The main character is evil & it is a battle of Minds.
- Both characters have a power
- Both characters are genius
- Both want to 'dominate the world'
- Both would kill peole to reach their goal
- Both are somehow good AND evil
- Both think they are 'good'
- Both try to protect something
The main characters on both Death Note and Code Geass are extremely smart and it seems as though they are playing a big game of chess. On Code Geass the main character is pined up against everyone else except for the people he can manipulates just like in Death Note but in Code Geass he has a SUPER POWER that helps him with some of his manipulation.
In both shows, the main characters are genius but yet bored with life. Both main characters share a hatred to this Society and seek for Justice.
This anime is in every single aspect SO SIMILAR(!) The comparison between the two is just unbelievable.
Death Note's main character has the heroic kind of personality, hiding under a fake name and bestow justice upon the world with a supernatural power.
THE SAME happens in Code Geass: *possible spoiler* the main charater also obtains a supernatural power, creates a fake person as his cover and bestows justice upon the world. Well, in this case, upon Japan.
They both are hindered by an organization, and in both animes, you also see big parts of dialogue and progression of the story of both sides. In both of them the main characters have to avoid/defeat the opposition by thinking very tactically, in which both are very skilled.
But the main reason they are so similar is in critical situations, the ambience, the reactions, the story, it makes you shiver in anxiousness.
I experienced this feeling first whilst watching Death Note. It actually scared me a bit, but it was just so awesome, it cannot be described by words, well at least I can't describe it ;p.
When I started watching Code Geass, the exact same feeling rose up again, and it told me: "This anime is going to BLOW YOUR MIND".
I have not finished Code Geass yet at this moment, but I'll say this: If you watch these two, you'll be statisfied with anime for at least a month.
Have fun an thanks for reading this! ^^
both have a main protagonist who follow a childish notion, by their own means of 'justice'
both main characters are very intelligent in the way they contradict their enemies, when they are eliminating evil, to create a better world.
both follow paths that lead them will lead you into angst/agony/ and a sense of realism/aswell as empathy for the characters as the story progresses through hardships and meltdowns, to romances, aswell as destruction.
both animes have beautiful OST's to accompany the emotional heart wrenching ups and down, giving the audiences feelings of sadness, to being courageous and even rooting for the main protagonists sense of justice
both animes see the bitterness of life and how harsh reality can be, as everyday life goes 1 day at a time, the worlds hatred on minorities, high ranking status's of people with power, to the poverty of others and how one loves JUSTICE,
they are very similar in a brilliant genius is creating a new world, for people to live in, away from a status pyramid, where everyone is the same and should be treated with respect. if you love one, you will love the other.
Both involve one man and his desire to change the world for the better through the use of a single, simple power.
Though the powers are simple, the plot is very complex.
Both series have a compelling plot and an interesting anti-hero as a main character. While Code Geass focuses more on action, Death Note focuses more on the story itself. Both series are highly recommended, but I'd say go for Code Geass if you prefer fantasy and action, and Death Note if you want something more dark and realistic.
The Protagonists are similar and have special powers which are similar
Both have similar premises in that an extremely smart high school student gains superpower and want to use it to change the world.
Whereas Lelouch in code geass is an anti-hero though, Light in Death Note is an anti-villain.
Both animes have characters with brilliant minds dueling and many psychological games.
Teenage masterminds who try to carry out what they think is justice and who lose themselves in the process. Both Light and Lelouch struggle to make the world share their view, while fighting either a super detective or an entire nation. Will the masterminds succeed in justifying their extreme actions, or will they lose to insanity? Both anime are psychologically very interesting and the plans these two scheme will leave you mind-blown at times. Definitely worth watching!
Both feauture a protagonist who wants to rule the world using whatever means possible.Also the geass is a bit similar with the power of the note.To sum up you have a great scenario,with incredible plot twists,interesting protagonists and cool powers!
Both main characters are smart, popular students, they receive a special power and with that power they try to change the world into a better place
it has similar strategy elements and also very good characters, although there is fighting in code geass, which is compltely different to death note
If you love Death Note and couldn't get enough of it and wanted more then Code Geass is the better version of Death Note. Not saying Death Note is bad cause it's pretty epic but Code Geass has that too smart to be true lelouch. He just like Light but he has the power to control a person's actions. Lelouch goal like Light goal is to create a world of peace. It's epic to the very end and will keep you guessing how is he going to get out of this.
Both of main characters gain the power of destroy others, anonymously. They first do it for "justice" but then, you know..
They both have a main protaganist who is trying to change the world for their own presonal reasons.
The exceedingly intelligent protagonists of both series act in order to create a better world for those around them—mainly their younger sisters—and utilize supernatural powers in the process. Though both have distinct motivations, their primary intentions are, at their roots, selfless.
One of the most notable connections that can be drawn between the two series is their chess game format. Chess is a motif present in both CG and DN; in each storyline, developments are often viewed as part of a giant game. Twists, traps, and deceptions pervade the conflicts in both series, and both Lelouch (Code Geass) and Light/Raito (Death Note) assume chessmaster roles.
Code Geass and Death Note each evoke their own questions of social justice, presenting two main sides that clash to protect their notions of integrity. Among these questions is the ubiquitous "Do the means justify the ends?" The series share the refreshing depiction of unorthodox viewpoints as being as worthy of acknowledgement as socially acceptable ones. Though it can be argued that objectivity fades as the episodes progress, in neither case is there a concrete definition of "wrong" or "right" forced upon the audience. As well, neither protagonist, despite his major role, is morally infallible.
the personality of the protagonist of both series is really similar both get crasy and both are really inteligent
Code geass Is really similar to Death Note. You look from the "Villain's perspective". Both of the protagonists hides their real identity, and has a similar goal.
both anime have similar male leads and both heroes are very intelligent
Mystery, Supernatural, Psychological, Thriller, Super powers
The way the main charater in both series plan is very simliar. They're really epic!
Both focus on an intelligent, popular, high school character who upon receiving supernatural powers seek to change the world and enforce their own kind of justice whilst also trying to keep their identity secret.
They also have about the same number of episodes.
Both protagonists are arguably closer to villains than actual antiheroes and are basically trying to take over the world through the mystical power given to them and ass pulls. Their respective show's entertainment value comes mostly from the thrill of seeing what new way they'll utilize to use their power to deceive and utterly humiliate their antagonists.
Both protagonist are getting rid of someone/something without revealing his/her identity
Both with a special gift
You will get almost the same traits having character and strong look for justice.
Even the story herself is pretty similar.
Death Note and Code Geass definitely bring a lot of differences to the table, but they have very similar feels, particularly when it comes to the often frantic cat-and-mouse aspects of the shows. Also, the respective plots of Death Note and Code Geass hinge on the existence of a supernatural power (or object with supernatural power, in Death Note's case) which further makes them comparable
Character us kind of crazy like in death note. Both characters also really smart. Both kind of got a mind fuck sort of thing going on(death note much more though)
they both want to create a utopia..
they have supernatural powers given by a powerful entity..
both have mind games that makes you think..
the protagonist is seen as evil...
I've seen this anime recommended here before, but I thought I'd recommend it anyways.
They are both similar because it's about someone trying to change the world. They both have or use supernatural powers, and that leads to corruption of themselves. Both the protagonists of the story have original good intentions, but are doing it in a immoral way.
Main protagonist in both animes are anti-heros and have similar ways of dealing with their enemies which is using tactics, strategies and most importantly deception.
Both has the most FAMOUS anti-heroic protagonists. And they been compared countless of times. The argument of "who's better" is still very much alive even after so many years had past since the ending of both series.
Lelouch and Kira are in the same intellectual level and look for similar things: changing the world (but wich one in a unique way). Both story are of high quality level and are well thought. And Code Geass (in many people's opnion) to surpass Death Note in drama and emotion.
1) Both of these have male characters who believe themselves to be Gods.
2) Both use strategies to figure out problems or get what they want.
3) Both become friends with people they need to so they can use them later on.
4) Both are highly intelligent.
I think they have some similarities, and though I definitely loved one more than the other, they are both worth watching at some point!
Both do justice ... Or at least claim that .. Even you do not know which side to choose.
Both are fascinating, and both have amazing ways to win, and they always do unexpected actions.
Just trust me and believe me, if you love one of them, you will love the second.
The only difference is that in Code Geass there is more action.
These both have a very smart protagonist that plan a lot. This isn't the only recommendation for this so I won't go into detail. The main difference is that while Code Geass centers around someone who looks evil being good (he's basically conquering the world) Death Note has someone who looks good doing evil (murdering people). I could go into more detail (the statement above is basically wrong) but then I would be spoiling stuff.
Both protagonist practically twist the plot around their finger
Light is very much like Lelouch, both are geniuses with darker streak, both enjoy viewing people as chess figures in their grand game and both pay a price for it.
They both have intelligent main characters that have been gifted a super-natural power.
Two megalomaniac hero, they want to change the world by manipulating their environment.
Death Note is very similar to Code Grass in that they both have a very intelligent protagonist who has the ability to manipulate people in order to achieve their goals.
They are both very great and I recommend them to everyone.
The most obvious recommendation of them all. Both have main character with superpower with some important flaws. Light and Lelouch have similar personalities, they both want to accomplish their ultimate goal no matter the cost, but Light is more radical. Death note´s quality drops in the second half, which is a shame and a reason why i enjoyed Code Geass more, but they are both worth the watch.
both series have story about main character being criminal and student. Both of them want to create a new world that would be better (from their perspective). The most similar thing is about how they execute their plan for building a new world
The plot twists are full of surprise and the suspense makes you want to watch the next episode as quickly as possible.
Both a battle-of-wits anime.
Both Lelouch and Kira (Light) have some sort of special ability to cleanse the world of evil. But they turn out to be like the antagonist.
Both animes are unusual for Shounen- seeing that they focus on out smarting the other instead of fighting.
Both anime resolve around two characters that use their power to manipulate people around them. Both have a goal of changing the world to what is best in their mind.
The main characters are very similar. They both get an unique power. They want to eliminate the unrighteousness in the world in their own way.
The both series are very unpredictable and exciting.
They both have very similar plot lines an ideas, yet they both seem to have very unique story lines, both of these animes are defiantly two of my all time favourites.
Both series have several geniuses that wage a psychological war against each other with grand goals in vision. Both set of characters happen to be possibly the most clever characters in all of anime.
Death Note is about a man that gets a gift that will allow him to change the world for the better.
He is a super-genius (gets 100% for University-level tests without trying)
Code Geass also stars a super-genius man with a new power that'll allow him to change the world. There is a very slight similarity in their ability.
Both animes are brialliantly written (Death Note somewhat better, though) and I personally am attracted to intelect.
Code Geass and Death Note are similar in one way: A complex, riveting storyline with minimal room for romance. A lot of strategy and guesswork is involved.
Both anime feature a protagonist longing to take over the world and redesign it. Light is fighting to kill Ryuzaki and become the god of the new world, while Lelouch from Code Geass is making a better world for his sister, Nunnale
Mind games are important part of the both series.
Main characters are both ultra-smart students with a unique supernatural power and trying to change the world with using substitute idol characters while they are staying behind the scenes. They both sacrifice their present and future in order to change the world.
Both of them have protagonists who are anti-heroes that try to shape the world but use unfavorable means of doing so.
they have lot of things in common but the most important things are that the heroes' community think they are representing the evil but indeed they are building the justice by their own ways , other one is that their precious people are standing in their way (actually they don't know about that) but light and lelouch handled them as a roadblocks and removed them .
finally , i thought these 2 points make them so similar , so who love one of them , surely will love the other one .
english isn't my first language , so excuse any mistakes .
hope you found it helpful , Jana ^^
Within both series, the main protagonists (Lelouch and Light) both attempt to achieve to "save" their country from its corruption.
Both involve psychological turns and major mind games that'll leave you in suspense.
They are both about a genius with an abnormal power.
In Death Note, one of the most obvious and enticing elements are the mind games played between Light and L, and Light and Near. This is also found in Code Geass, which not only brings these mind games to the table, but introduces them on an empirical scale-- literally!
Adicted story lines with action and unpredictable endings. Both are created with clever minded scenes full of strategy and slice of fantasy.
Death Note is similar to the everyday life and Code Geass is similar to the World War with high advanced weapons.
These two anime fight to create a new and better world with different methods.
The main character from both series is a genius who is using a power offered by a superior being to make the world better by eliminating all threats.
main character kills a ton of people
Both feature insanely intellectual main characters, and feature intellectual meta-game chess-like plots.
Both main characters try to change the world by using some type of supernatural power.
Are both intelectual animes, but code geass, in my opnion is even better.
The mains caracters of these two animes are both very intelligent and inherits of a huge power they will use for their own visions of justice
They are both shounen anime, but surpass the genre through the psychological mind games between the characters. The main characters are intelligent anti-heroes, and receive a unique power. Despite their good intentions and their attempts to change the world for the better, they end up using these powers in the wrong way, which causes destruction and the death of loved ones. Finally, both anime raise moral questions about what justice really is. Unpredictable, riveting and thrilling. Go and watch them both. You won't be disappointed.
Both male main characters start off as regular teenage boys until they possess the power; either the notebook or geass. The plot is very similar too, as their main goals is to change the world into a better place.
Both animes main character are very intelligent and both are very similar to each other. Both characters contain some kind of special power, and are trying to change the world by facing enemies that are close to them.
These 2 Shōnen anime are very similar in many respects.
The main characters both receive a controversial power from an unknown being.
The both try to purge the world of evil, acting on their own ideas of justice and equality.
The main characters both have a secret alias; Zero and Kira.
All in all, Code Geass and Death Note are very similar and are must-watch anime series!
Death Note reminds me of Code Geass because of its intense emotions and the constant twists and turns the plot takes. It excludes certain events until they actually play apart in the overall scheme and it always keeps you guessing. It is also very cool to watch Light and L's minds work and plan 50 steps ahead just like Lelouch.
Both have the premise of strategy. Both Protagonists are kid geniuses. Both have special powers.
Both Code Geass and Death Note are based upon highly witted protagonist whose actions are sole consequence of their thinking. Just watch it and you will know what I mean.
Everyone and their grandma has seen Death note however there is another anime that is alot like it.
It's hard not to see Guilty Crown as something of a Code Geass rip-off when they're similar to the extent the main character receives "the power of the king" from a mysterious female, before involving himself in a Japanese rebellion against foreigners discriminating against the Japanese. There are even robots on roller-skates in it!
So far, what keeps the two as separate entities is the respective leads. In Code Geass Lelouch starts the rebellion himself and is driven by both hatred and the desire to protect his disabled little sister. In Guilty Crown the lead is a bit emotionally unstable and gets himself pulled into the rebellion of another man.
If the school-mecha warfare blend continues as the series progresses, those linking the two will only increase in number. It's a good thing Guilty Crown has outstanding visuals and music, as well as fast-pacing--people would look down on it otherwise.
Dictator evil government with gaint robots on roller blades, 17 year old gain they "power of the king" by a mysterious girl, Rebellion against the government. Then later one we got an incident which is exactly like the incident of code geass Season 2.
Both series are about a teenage boy who receives/gains access to a great power thanks to a mysterious girl and uses it to become politically subversive and wage war against a destructively repressive and controlling government. If you like the core elements of one, they can be found pretty much intact in the other.
They both have mecha, fights and a few people with special abilities. Guilty Crown feels like a combination of Evangelion and Code Geass.
Indeed when i first watched Guilty Crown it was feeling like the same atmosphere which used to have Code Geass.
Now let me explain:
- both stories start in this future age in a post-apocalyptic-war scenery, face the government as villain, have discriminated people (Eleven/Infected), and as well have a rebellion lead by the main characters (Black Knights/Undertakers)
- both series evolve around a main character, the usual teenager student, which casually gain a special power from a quiet and mysterious girl.
- both anime have similar mechas
- and last, both have an amazing art style and great character design ♥
Of course i do recommend both definitely!
both are talking about the war in japan and it takes place in the future
also there are mecha in both of them
Both of these series involve Japan in some way facing an army that has mech suits and an endless supply of manpower. There is one person who is able to rise up with power in the realm of Code Geass it's Lelouch and in the Guilty Crown series it's Shu. As the story progresses they both take you on a roller coaster ride of character development. Code Geass mainly dealt with class struggle while Guilty Crown deals with a virus. It's interesting to see how Guilty Crown will play out in the end though.
Change Britannia Anthem to UN anthem, or whoever send there troops, and you got yourself Guilty Crown, pretty much the same setting in different wrapping.
Guilty Crown and Code Geass are both written by Hiroyuki Yoshino and Ichiro Okouchi. As such, it is expected that there will be some similarities between them.
- Both feature a 17-year-old male protagonist that meets a mysterious girl who gives him a supernatural power.
- Both take place in a futuristic setting where Japan is under the control of a superpower/organization.
- Both have a resistance group that fights against the superpower/organization.
- The main character joins the resistance group in both.
- The resistance group and superpower/organization use mecha to fight in both.
both are school based action to overthrow a evil regime code geass is done right guilty crown isnt
-male protagonist get his power from a girl
These shows are very similiar, both include mecha and a mysterious girl that give supernatural power. Both take place in Japan during a futuristic war, and both protagonists are 17.
the story is similar because it's abouth war,friends, and betrayal and the have supernatural power called king
The main protagonists are obsessed ove something as they eventually become berserk.
Dystopian future Japan, rollerskating mecha, main character joins the resistance, innocent Japanese citizens are frequently massacred by the rulers, occasional school scenes to lighten the mood.
Both Anime's have the Rebels fighting against the goverment ... both anime's have a strange girl ... both anime's are great mecha Battle anime's !
Just like others have said, both Guilty Crown and Code Geass share some striking similarities, from the artwork, right down to main characters.
The protagonists both have a special power referred to as "the power of the kings". In both, mysterious girls gave them this power. Before this power, they had both been outsiders wishing they could change the world, but finding no way to do it. After this power it seems that there is no going back. Both girls end up staying with the protagonist at their school.
Both are like Mecha shows, As what you've seen, Both of the anime has Action, Drama, Mecha, Supernatural and I think? School? Well yes, In my opinion, This, Both of them have unique characters, Cool, As what you see on them, They are like, Popular animes, Like trending? I think, Lol. But It's really good, That's why I recommend this, If you really either one of this, You should better start watching Guilty Crown/Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch!
You can also see here that the main protagonist? Oh should we call it like that? No, Maybe I think Main "Character" do some sort of rebellion thingy, But a little bit different from Hangyaku No Lelouch since he's the one who manages or whatever the rebellion while Guilty Crown, Is just a part of the rebellion one not like in Hangyaku No Lelouch.
Have the same kind of base history, a normal guy who have some unbelievable encounter that changes the entire route of his life, and give's him the power to change others as well.
They are both very similar. Both are mecha and both main character receives "the power of the king" from a mysterious female.
It's good but it feels just like a copy off because there's a boy who is tried of being pushed around and do nothing and is granted the power to stop an evil dictatorship from running the nation. But it's still good none the less
This is an obvious one. Both series involve a rebellion with mecha and action. The only difference is in Code Geass, the protagonist himself leads the rebellion while the protagonist in Guilty Crown is just a part of the rebellion led by someone else.
The Only Differences between Code Geass and Guilty Crown are:
Guilty Crown: You've been given the Power of the Kings. You can now do by your lone self what a thousand men could never hope to accomplish. Also, here's your hot magic girl.
Shuu: Ah, um, ow... *sob* I miss my boring, ordinary life.
Code Geass: You've been given the Power of the Kings. You can now do by your lone self what a thousand men could never hope to accomplish. Also, here's your hot magic girl.
Lelouch: Oh? Then please bear with me as I CONQUER THE WORLD. All those who wronged me, yes, they shall pay.
The fighting style is similar as well as the story line, maybe its just me that thinks so but i definitely recommend both of these
Has the similar storyline,plot and main character with special powers
"We don't see the show's resemblance" my ass, Guilty Crown producers. Both anime were more or less from the same development team, and are virtually identical. However, whereas Code Geass was met with brilliant reception for its masterful plot, characters, and enjoyability, Guilty Crown was definite flop in these areas (I was skeptical about the reviews at first - how could the same team who made Code Geass fail at an anime with similar themes? Unfortunately, most of the show's reviews were entirely justified).
+ Mecha action (although the mechas in GC felt more gimicky and not as highly featured as in Code Geass)
+ Similar environment: a pseudo-apocalyptic universe
+ Great music in both anime
+ Fantastic art in both series. Guilty Crown has one of the best art directions I've seen so far, whereas each setting is a masterpiece
+ "The power of Kings": each protagonist was given a world-changing special power at the beginning of the show, which shared the same name
+ Drama w/ a touch of lighthearted comedy
- Whereas Lelouch was one of my favourite characters in anime, the protagonist of Guilty Crown is just poorly written, chauvinistic, and a whiny little "let other people fight your battles" bi***. Seriously. One of the worst characters in anime history atm, and I'm praying for some development or an overhaul
- Fan service is included in both of them. In Code Geass it was subtle and actually pleasant/unnoticeable, but Guilty Crown was truly in your face about it. Bouncing boobs every time a girl is injured? Butts hitting a computer screen to input a command? Awfully cheesy sexual innuendos and implementations? Definitely needs to be toned down twenty notches
- No one and nothing in Guilty Crown has a motivation/raison d'étre. What's the main character's purpose except wanting to get into the female protagonist's pants again?
Sorry if I got too review-y there. TL;DR am I right? Sorry but I felt as if I had to warn you about GC's deceptive appearance after its comparison with Geass.
CG and GC; initials reversed. Coincidence? I think not! If you enjoyed Guilty Crown, you will go head over heels for Code Geass. I can't say for sure that the reverse is true though (Guilty Crown currently is about a 6.5/10 for me whereas Geass had a perfect score)... On the flip side, I'm writing this recommendation only 13/24 episodes into the first season of Guilty Crown, so it still has a shot at redemption! I'm rootin' for you GC...
Robot battle,a man that change the world , terrorist ...
Both protagonist met a mysterious girl who give them power of the king and both of them are resistance fighting the government suppression and tyranny both settings is like a ghetto parts of Japan.when the series progresses both anime begun to realize they're fighting to much bigger threat a threat that they're fighting to people who wants to change the world for themselves... well the difference is that.. Guilty Crown has a FAG!!! and Cowardly King(Shou) and Code Geass has a manly genius king(Lelouch)
While I was watching Guilty Crown, Code Geass came to my toughts many times, they are very simmilar yet different :P
Nothing mucho to say, both of them are just epic.
Ok, so this recommendation is already done more than 200 times. The similarities are obvious if you watch them. However, guilty crown is not just a complete ripoff of code geass. Despite its faults, guilty crown can be extremely enjoyable to watch.
What we need is a divided nation, a mysterious girl, a rebellion, a male who wants to change the world and some super powers. With these few elements we can create both Code Geass and Guilty Crown. The main story in these two anime is very similar: A boy meets a mysterious girl who gives him super powers and both of them join (or already have joined) a rebellion fighting against 'the system'. Add some fighting 'robots', guns and enough action to leave you wondering what will happen next and you have two very interesting anime. Enjoy!
Both are school mecha anime, and both are about a rebellion against foreign tyrants , and both main protagonists get a power from a girl
There is a main character playing "the Messiah" for the sake of world; a lot of robots, revenge, lies, hate, love; the world in danger and many many dying people.
I can't choose what's better.
Both have a story placed in an overuled Japan (by different reasons), a protagonist with a rare power and a few of his enemies which have them so, these rare powers the protagonist stands his ground depend on other people, both involve a force of resistance (Guilty Crown) or rebellion (Code Geass) against the established order, and either one of them makes use of mechas. This are pretty much their alike points. I recommend you to find the differences (that are quite some) by yourself as you enjoy the anime.
Power of the kings.
Both are Real-Robot shows.
(It is lesser in comparison to Code Geass but I suggest everyone to see it through to the end.)
Almost uniquely similar Main Character gets his power's from an female character.
HE act's like an king also The Power is related to Absolute Obedience.
I highly Recommend this.
Both have a main character that receives power called "the power of the King" from a mysterious girl.
They both are to do with rebellions against the government and terrorists.
Both have robot/mobile-suits that fight.
-Both protagonist have similar powers
-Involves mysterious Girl
-Organization / Resistance Group
both main characters are normal guys who receive a mysterious power referred to as "king's power". they both use it to lead a revolution and determine their destiny.
Future, Big robots, a rebellion and a mysterious power.
Both protagonist are rebelling against a corrupt Japanese government. Both the main characters lelouche and shu ouma develop as the anime goes on.
-The hero meet a girl that gives him power
Great plots, cool characters, some awesome OST's in both, and overall just entertainment at its finest. Some people are, however, a bit skeptical with the ending to Guilty Crown, but I liked it! It could have been better, but I still liked it
First of all it is Mechanic genre, like Code Geass. The main character get an unique power, provided by an awesome girl :). They both had terrible accidents when they were little. They become stronger throughout the anime.
Both of these anime have the robotic-tech theme and both protagonists have a strong desire to protect someone( guilty crown Inori and Code geass his younger sister). Also both anime give the same vibe and they are fighting for japans freedom
much like guilty crown in it featuring mecha fighting suits and one person in control of an extremely powerful special ability. What makes code geass much better though is the presence of an emotionally powerful, charismatic and intelligent main character who rather than blindly follows orders for love has a goal of his own that he will do anything to achieve.
My personal favorite anime and one i strongly recommend
They both involve fighting, with gundams. And the guy gets some rare and great power from a girl and his life changes. And in both anime, they seek to restore or make japan its own in some way
These two are almost the same because they are both Mecha. In both anime a boy meets a mysterious girl who gives them a special power that only they can use. They use it to "save the world" and they both end up getting corrupt and kill their friends along the way. If you like one you'll like the other.
They are both Mecha animes, and share a lot the same characteristic traits.
I found these anime quite similar due to the fact that they have those moments in the anime where you want to hit your television or computer screen while watching. (Not a bad thing) The main characters are a little similar but lelouch in Code Geass is a lot smarter. The way they react to situations are quite the same. The both of these anime are really great in my opinion and I recommend it to anyone who is willing to go on the thrilling ride these two awaits.
The legendary anime Code Geass can even compare to a anime? Well yes it can, both these anime are about a group of rebels that fight the government and military because of something. The main charactor both have super powers but Guilty Crown features more romance which adds to the anime. Also mecha and guns are included in this too!
The same sense in drama comes from both animes. Despite the art style soundtrack being worse than Guilty crowns'; its better in every other aspect.
The both principal characters are in conflict with the world inside a organisation.
Mechs, drama, comedy, if you like one you will like the other.
Flashy animation, mecha fest with plenty of action packed sequences, political intrigue galore: Gundam 00 and Code Geass in a nutshell. Both titles focus on the efforts of the leads to change the world in one way or another, these efforts having quite drastic consequences along the way. Gundam 00 follow a group of characters and takes place in space as well as on Earth while Code Geass has a clear main character and takes nationalistic desires as the primary plot device, fans of one are likely to enjoy the other.
Both anime are about small group of mecha pilots challanging major military powers in the world (rebels against the strongest empire on earth in CG and small elite group trying to change the world in MSG 00). Both also have super mecha and super pilots as their trump card
Code Geass and Mobile Suit Gundam 00 both fall under the mecha genre. Their plot is also similar - each series having a second season of 25 episodes each with more or less the same format. Both series have a very good story which keeps the watcher eager to know what's going to happen next. In both Code Geass and Mobile Suit Gundam 00 there is romance - though this is more evident in Mobile Suit Gundam 00. In my opinion both have the ingredients that make a great series.
Both shows feature a vigilante group (or in the case of Gundam, a world police more or less) which fights against governments in order to create a peaceful world. While Code Geass deals more with humanity issues, Gundam 00 focuses on the futility of war. It is also more mecha-centric than Code Geass and there is no lack of action in either series.
Much like Code Geass Gundam 00 is focused on changing the world. Both animes contain mechs and lots of action as well as strategy. While in Code Geass the story focuses on Lelouch and his skills at millitary strategy Gundam 00 puts the focus on several primary characters one of which is a battle forecaster who plans Celestial beings strategies and actions. Both animes put a great amount of weight into the consequences of the actions characters take to change the world.
I started Gundam 00 right after I finished Code Geass and immediatly recognized the similarities I think it is safe to say if you liked Code Geass you will probably like Gundam 00 as well.
Indeed Code Geass and Gundam 00 are very similar and yet both masterpieces.
They both have:
• a terroristic group who plays the part of the "good guys" actually
• Earth's big leaders (Emperor/Politicians) are both instead the antagonists
• wonderfully planned war strategies
• mechas, sci-fi
• famous and very good skilled cast of seiyuus
• both series have the same lasting of 25 episodes, with a second season having the same amount once again
• and much more, that u'll find out while watching!
Without mentioning that both series share an amazing art, epic musics and very well planned story.
If you liked one of those i highly recommend you to watch the another serie as well! They really worth it! ♥
In both series the characters strugle to change the World with the means of force ,useing mechas and the characters also have similar ideas on how the World should change
if you liked code geass and looking for another great mecha anime...
Same mecha anime with same studio
The both players want to change the world, regardless of the methods. Both full of drama and suspense, both are dark. The art is very similar and beautiful. Both are mecha.
Both are very similar in story. The main character wants to unite/change the world by fighting against those in control. The two stories also use mecha, which get more powerful as the story progresses.
Both animes are mecha/political based. Both are also produced by Sunrise.
Both are about a secret organisation which fights for the world. Both use force and tactics, mechical machines, and are very exciting. When you like Code Geass, you'll like Gundam 00 too. You'll be dragged by a beautiful story and interesting characters. The art is a bit the same. A nice thing about those two animes is the desire to watch. I just wasn't able to stop before I finished season 1 and 2 from both animes. Like Code Geass, Gundam 00 is touching. It looks like an anime like Gundam or Geass is only about fighting and surviving, but it has cry scenes scattered everywhere. There are strong friendships, like Suzaku and Lelouch, and alike the four Gundam Meisters. Although Gundam isn't about much love or something like that. Gundam and Code Geass are both a big mystery and dark. Worth watching!
It was made by the same people (Sunrise) and both are effectively the same plot: An attempt at creating a peaceful world. You may completely forget the differences between Knightmare Frames and Mobile Suits while watching.
Both are SciFi, Mecha and have to do with politics and making the world a better place; creating peace.
They are both meca anime and they both have a group of rebels fighting for the change of the world
Both feature awesome futuristic mecha battles, both focus on the goals and aspirations of two revolutionary groups trying to change the world, and both show as the carefully laid plans of these groups fall apart and what happens after this.
Politics and love-relationships. The only difference is that the four main characters
They are both mecha anime
Both anime have similar main characters who vow to change the world for the better. Though both have good intentions it may take some evil methods to get to the end result. Both anime have similar animation aspects and close dialouge.
00 took several elements of Code Geass and kind of went on from there (which is ironic considering Code Geass' second season takes a lot of elements from 00 but Sunrise knows how to make it all work). Basically a group of youth tired of the world as it is take it upon themselves to change the current order. The group becomes quickly notorious and wanted worldwide and as it goes on things only escalate into epicness.
Same concept revolution and trying to make a better place except for it's more robotic and futuristic then a single person using the world as a chess game.
Code Geass is often described as death note mixed with gundams. Out of all the gundam series, Gundam 00 is the most similar in tone and plot to Code Geass.
-both have terrorist groups
-regular mechas and more advanced prototypes
Both are mecha animes with strong emphasis on character development. They both feature awesome mechs and a great OST.
Mobile suit fights with a dark political background story.
-Both action are focused on Mecha
-The mecha battles are always upgrading and upgrading
-Both anime are about trying to in one way or the other end conflict
Both of these shows focus on the ongoing battle between two childhood best friends on opposite sides. They also both have mecha has a pivotal focus point in combat. While their settings are different, there are many similar character relations and plot points that viewers of both of these shows will probably enjoy.
Sunrise created both gundam seed and Code Geass and the storyline is very similar as there are two best friends who are forced to fight each other etc.
Gundam Seed and Code Geass both have the same relationships between the characters. Lelouch and his best friend are fighting for opposing causes and end up fighting each other. They are both Mecha anime and have really Twisted story lines. But thats what makes it so good :)
Mechs used for war, childhood best friends pitted against each other because of war, main characters are both chick-magnets so there are awkward love/anti-love triangles
If you're like me and adored all of the character interactions in Gundam SEED, then you will certainly love the ones in Code Geass. Admittedly, the stories are very different. But hey, they both have mechas, and they both pit best friends against each other. Always a fun conflict to see, right?
In the last few weeks I've been singing the praises of Code Geass, and when people ask why I always end up comparing it to Gundam Seed. Both series have a similar plot, you've got a character who is silly smart, and decides to 'save the world'. Through both series you'll find you'll have yourself pondering about which side your really on. While Code Geass has Lelouch doing questionable things, you'll find half the characters in Seed lost themselves trying to decide who are the good guys. Although there is obviously a little more fighting and Mecha in Seed there is still a strong storyline and you'll find yourself wondering how each episode will conclude, although there's never much doubt on who will win.
When I first began watching Code Geass, the plot immediately reminded me of the first episode of SEED. The only thing that was different was the personality of the protagonist. Other characters seem similar too.
Later on it's quite obvious that parts of the plot are extremely similar, you if you enjoyed SEED, you would like Code Geass, or the contrary.
The same sort of racially-charged war with some that switch sides and such. Mech-suits are common, too.
Both are mecha animes and with actually plot that is moving... Both take place in the future and there are some fantasy and romance elements too.
Confirming what the others said having watched over half of SEED, the similarities between CODE GEASS are tremendous.
The mech combat is very well done and any fan of mech anime or of futuristic combat will appreciate both series.
it has the same mecha nd sci-fi genre and also some of the characters are similar
Good anime, both deal with love and have best friends pitted against each other.They're both mecha though Code Geass focuses less on mecha but more on the story. And of course they both have pink haired princesses.
Code Geass is Death Note meets Gundam SEED. Nothing more needs to be said.
Gundam Seed is what you might call Code Geass' fraternal older twin. Like "Code Geass," it focuses on two childhood friends, Kira and Athrun, who end up on opposite sides of the battle. Lelouch fans/fangirls will be enthralled with Athrun Zala, and Suzaku fangirls will like Kira. However, this series is from Kira's point of view, so if you liked Suzaku's way of seeing war, then you'll agree with Kira. Strong female leads are a huge plus in this series, with Lacus as a more powerful Euphie, and Cagalli as a less fanserviced Kallen.
Biggest Differences: space battles, both main characters pilot mecha, SEED spends more time on battles, Kira also has an evil girlfriend.
both are related to mecha..and not just any normal mecha,but rather of the "HIGH CLASS"
Eventhough the characters themselves aren't that similar except for Princess Euphemia and Lacus and their pink hair, the relationships they have are pretty much the same.
The friendship between Suzaku and Lelouch with them being on different sides of the battlefield are the same with Kira and Athrun being on different sides, one on ZAFT and one on EARTH Alliance.
The relationship between Kira and his sister Cagalli are to the same extent that Lelouch shares with his half sister Euphemia.
And also the romance between Cagalli who is a natural and Athrun who is a coordinator is similar to Euphemia who is a Britannian and Suzaku who is an eleven.
The only similarity isn't just the character relations, but the show itself because both Gundam Seed and Code Geass have mechas that are used as the primary fighting weapons.
Both are involving battle and two childhood best friend.
Another anime by Sunrise, both both Athrun and Lelouch were directly based off of Char Aznable but they and other characters share many similarities with one another, both betray their nation (ZAFT/Britannia), both have a brown haired friend they fight against (Kira/Suzaku), Code Geass just happens to change the perspective (though both focus on the other protagonist too). SEED is much more better but I recommend Code Geass first because it will disappoint if you watch it afterwards.
obvious similarities: both have mecha, military, war, action and two best friends on two opposing sides fighting ideological battles and their own sense of justice and trying to persuade the other to join his side, a pink-haired princess etc.
also everytime kira sits in the pilot's cockpit it always reminds me of suzaku. heck, even character designs are largely similar for kira and lacus, and suzaku and euphemia respectively. both are also full of battle strategies, plot twists, though code geass definitely has crazier twists and higher unpredictability. also, BOTH ARE TRAGIC, FULL OF ANGST AND INTERNAL CONFLICT, and both made me cry (;
both also have awesome soundtracks, ops and ending songs. (:
i came to gundam seed trying to look for something similar to CODE GEASS, THE ANIME I LOVE THE MOST <33, and though code geass is still the best imo, gundam seed was undoubtedly very good.
if you are a fan of one or the other, THE OTHER IS A MUST-WATCH.
Both anime involve two teenagers that were once good friends, but are now forced to battle each other in their state-of-the-art mechs.
They both have a very smart character or strategist. Both have best friends that are fighting on different sides from the start LOL. And both have mobile suits (or mobile suit looking things) that are well equipped and the main characters pilot them well. Kira is drawn like Suzaku. LOOOOOOL. It's like the Naturals vs Coordinators and Elevens vs the Brittanian Empire. Except Kira wants peace, and Lelouch wants to annihilate Brittania. There's also a Lacus-like character LOL. You'll get hooked onto the other anime if you really like one of them.
Mecha action, lots of female fanservice!
These two series both have heavy dosages of mecha, though its mecha done right, when there ARE casualties and sacrifices are made, though Gurren Lagann is less thinking, it still has the right combination of elements to keep you glued to the screen and want more. Think Gurren Lagann as a lighter, less intelligent type, that has a wider scope then Code Geass.
Well they are both about Mechas nd they are both Epic Anime. 2 of the best i've ever seen
Though the series main characters are vastly different and Gurren Lagann might be considered a "lighter" anime, both of these series engaged me and made me addictively watch as much as 20 eps a day. Additionally, both series fighting is done in mecha and they fight against superpowers with little more than their wills.
- mecha fights
- lots of action in every episode
- political intrigue later in series
- female fanservice
Both are fast pace in both action and the story so you will never get board.
*PATHOS PATHOS PATHOS*
Also good mecha.
If you like Code Geass, you will like TTGL
both series deal with rebellion against a greater power and both series have mecha
Both are absolutely epic mecha anime.
Code Geass and Tegen Toppa Gurren Lagann both involve mecha, and of course, lot's of action. Although the fighting in Code Geass is essentially against one enemy, and in Gurren Lagann, the enemy/opponent varies, it is still clear that there is a protagonist and antagonist in each story. Both take place in the future, as well. In both, the protagonists is a strong character, who has the support of several characters. Both are exciting, and involve a lot of action, as well as some comedy and romance. =)
Both of these animes redefine the meaning of the word "Epic".
-The way it becomes more and more epic as the show goes on.
-Nia being similar to Euphie.
-Yoko being similar to Kallen.
Note: Code Geass is a lot more serious and realistic than Gurren Lagann though both are great series.
Both are mecha animes that envolve around war. Both implement stratigies in their battles however Gurren Lagan is a bit more silly and random. It's like you combined Code Geass with FLCL. But if you like Code Geass defently try out Gurren Lagann
Think of Code Geass as a more serious Gurren Lagann. Both have elements such as mechas and rebellions.
Both are incredibly well done mechas with incredible plots and characters. Both can also be heavily philosophical at times.
Code Geass is an EPIC psihological anime.Tengen Toppa have mecha and epic action.The main characters are very manly and epic's.
By the way..
Both are mecha, and have very good stories, with Gurren Lagann having better action and Code Geass having a better story.
The feeling of these two series was the same for me - gripping action, awesome mechas and some love. If you like one, you'll like the other.
Darker than Black and Code Geass are both in a technological world where the protagonist have a very powerful ability. There are lots of pizza hut hidden in the background or just somewhere on the screen. Suspense and fights, thats what they are all about.
Whilst they aren't really terribly alike, the dark themes these two anime's share make them both highly recommendable, and if you like one then you will probably like the other. Both of the main characters, Hei and Lelouch, obtain supernatural abilities, and whilst Lelouch manipulates people and leads a revolution, Hei is manipulated by a mysterious company. But both characters seek to change the way the world currently works for the better.
The similiar main character Lelouch and Hei act very nice hiding their true goal
Lelouch and Hei are very similar in that they both have supernatural abilites obtained through a "contract" (different meanings in each anime, but still a contract :P ) They wear a mask to the public (Lelouch is Zero and Hei is BK-201)and both are devoted to their little sisters. Both have Pizza Hut everywhere and mysterious green haired girls (well, one of them is really blond, but sometimes it looks green). If you like one of them, you'll probably like the other ;)
The characters are very similar to each-other Hei is to LeLouche as Amber is to CC. Amber and CC even look alike! Now back to WHY. The goal for each of them (Lelouche and Hei) both involve their sisters. Both have "magical" powers to help them succeed in their way of their goal. Either finding or protecting it seems so alike.
If you like code geass then you might like this anime too... Both of them are action-packed.The only difference is that code geass has mechas in it while Darker Than Black doesn't. Well if you like an action packed anime with assasinations this one is for you.
I found similarities between the two series:
♥ hei and lelouch are involved in contracts
♥ there is always a cat
♥ hei and lelouch wear masks and have their own different identities (hei - BK201, lelouch - zero)
♥ hei and lelouch also wear their costumes (coat and cloak)
♥ hei and lelouch are desperate when it comes to their sisters
♥ hei and lelouch have black hair
♥ hei and lelouch have something in their eyes when using their powers (natural for those who have the same powers: contractors' powers and geass)
♥ amber and C.C. have similar character design
♥ both series are worthwhile :)
Freking crazy how some of the characters are exactly the same in the 2 series plus the way the story is told is a lot alike just no mechs but they has powers instead
If you like one, you'll like the other, but not only that, both are about masked men with super powers taking on large governmental entities.
For all that Code Geass is all about being over-the-top and Darker Than Black is all about leaving things open-ended and unexplained, the similarities in style and tone are uncanny. Both are dark, morally ambiguous stories where nothing is as it seems and supernatural powers are used with deadly intelligence and a decided lack of conscience. Both involve conflict among several shadowy groups and both protagonists have to balance selfish goals with principles they didn't necessarily realize they still had. Superficial similarities abound as well. If you liked the dark, complex and twisty storyline where important things are only revealed slowly, the conflicted antihero, and the unexpected moments of comedy amid the action and intrigue, you'll probably like Code Geass.
-both are very dark
-lots of people want the main guy killed
-both main girls are very important to the main guy
-supernatural powers which are very creative are in
-at one point the main guys are basically like "F the world, i'll do what i want!"
-both are set in the future
-both guys have 2 lives.
-both have second seasons.
-the "outside" world does not know of these supernatural powers.
-there will be important people dying
Both feature badass mask-wearing dual-personality protagonists who are trying to change the world in one form or another (Lelouch in a much more outward manner). Both shows also make use of mysterious, even mystical green-haired women who have a strong influence on the male lead. Of the two, Code Geass has the more grandiose plot and is more overtly entertaining, while DtB exudes subtler themes and tones. If for whatever reason you haven't seen either of these shows, do so now :P
both are really good in story likable character and they seem the same in a way i ant explain
DTB and Code Geass both have lead male protagonists who have double lives. They fight while having their real identities concealed towards their opponents, Hei more so than Lelouch overall. Lelouch and Hei both have effective special powers they use in battle except Hei is more of a close-combat fighter.
Anti-heroes who turn out to do good
mecha anime... war between to opposite views. GREAT drama, few tear jerker moments :
Deep, thoughtful, but also light at times. Both these animes have strong plots and characters and feature interesting applications of the stereotypical mecha genre
the style, the type of monster looking things. It is a pretty good story with the same anime style
Both not only contain Mechanical robots, but both have suspense packaged in every episode so you'll be begging for more!
Overall, both are well done, unique animes with a nice style to them that anyone can enjoy if they don't have a stick up their butt.
Even though many people dislike Mecha animes, both of these seem to be loved by all including the Mecha haters. Both animes have interesting characters, plots (although Eureka 7 is rather confusing at the start) and awesome giant robots. Their stories are not similar but this just makes watching them a whole new enjoyable experience.
Both shows have a young boy who is placed with powers that he is unsure of. The Goverment is keeping both of the young men back as they try to take over the world. Eureka Seven will give you the deeper conation to the supporting cast other that just the main cast.
Same english voice actor.
these are both extremly good anime's i loved watching both of them they both contain alot of mecha and also they both have very good plots. and all together they both make amazing series
Mecha, action, drama, comedy, over-the-top fights, and politics. What's not to like?
Epic mecha with great characters, if you liked one you should like the other. Eureka Seven is more romantic than Code Geass but they both have awesome Mecha action.
Both Code Geass and Eureka Seven involve mecha and fighting. Although Eureka Seven has a bit lighter of a feel to it, both have intense moments, as well as comedy and romance. =)
Both are mecha and have a dark tone. Eureka Seven is slower and a little less dark than Code Geass, but the story and action are great. The character development is excellent and has you really hoping the two MC's succeed.
For me the only difference is that FMP has a lot of comdey in it and Code Geass doesn't. Both are, at least for me, the two best animes in the genre(mecha, action...)!
Well all i can say this both animes are similar to each other,the only thing I can mention,that in Code Geass u can see more "Blood" than Full Metal Panic,and in Full Metal Panic u can see a lot of comedy,but they are very similar ,have mechas and all.
Mecha and politics in a school based, adult world and alternate timeline setting. Both at time comical but mostly intense and gripping. Highly recommended!
Both aboput war and suffering, but Full Metal Panic has a funny side to it as well. Although the stories are different, they are both about the war against different countries and using robots to fight.
As soon as I began watching Code Geass I was reminded of Full Metal Panic!
Whilst the storylines for both series differ greatly they're both similar in the sense that they aren't your conventional Mecha style anime.
Although Code Geass features a lot more mechs than Full Metal Panic! does, it goes more into the people piloting the mechs, their emotions and relationships and develops each and every character efficiently.
Rather than possessing a storyline along the lines of "Evil mechs are invading, ALL GOOD MECHS LAUNCH AN ASSAULT". Code Geass is similar to Full Metal Panic! in the sense that the story revolves around some form of magical power, in Full Metal Panic's case it's the Whispered and in Code Geass' case it's the Geass and CC. An added bonus, which it also shares with Full Metal Panic!, is that rather than just slapping this magic power on people and saying "Yeah they have this power so they can do stuff" the anime goes into detail about the power and it's origins, although it still keeps a lot of things in the dark for the next season, it makes the power of Geass believable.
Although these anime differ greatly from one another there are still those core elements present in Code Geass that I enjoyed in Full Metal Panic! and would definately reccomend to anyone who's watched FMP! to have a look at Code Geass.
Mecha, Military and I think a bit of romance? Meh. They are both similar at my prespective.
The plot is the same with a huge difference in tone. Both have mechs and such with a main character with a special ability.
In FMP it is the Whispered, while in Code Geass, it is C.C.
The FMP is at best the funniest, however it can, at certain points, be as 'dark' as Code Geass.
FMP is much lighter, with a greater amount of comedy, but both are excellent series that have highly-intelligent characters, war, romance, mecca and a good story
while in code geass, the male lead, lelo command the other female leads cc and kallen, and in fmp, the female lead kaname or tessa basically command sosuke. so in this feature, the sex is totally swaped..In code geass there is just as much mecha action as fmp. they both involve a special weapon that both protagonist and anatogonist control and as they struggle for victory. In code geass the special weapon was the Avalon, and the Lancelot and the other 9 knights of the round. But in fmp its the landad driver. FMP focuses on comedy and current settings, while code geass is sci fi and is set in the future and doesnt go for the comedy as much... in the end, i think these 2 great anime is interconnected. one literally reminds me of the other.. and up until now, i havent heard of any1 who likes fmp but doesnt like code geass... i greatly recommend it !!!!!!!!!
They share the same basic concept of war and strategy. And also the use of robot machines that beat the crap out of stuff.
High school guy who's part of a military group in an alternate-history version of modern Japan protects a female who's close to him, has ridiculous-yet-awesome super-powered mech fights, comedy's interspersed throughout the show(FMP! has far, far more comedy though). If you like one, then there's no way you won't like the other.
Both are mecha, have a school-life setting, and have main characters with special powers.
They are both extremely stylistic mecha series involving a supernatural twist and an alternate history setting. Like Code Geass, Valvrave utilises a number of well-known anime tropes, including a high school setting, and the various character types are nothing unique. But the way these different elements come together - and the way some ludicrous plot twists are revealed - give both anime series a distinct charm.
In terms of presentation, both series' main male protagonist seems to be exposed to a special/supernatural like power that gives him a taste of vengeance. As a matter of fact, the main protagonist from both series delivers that source of vengeance against those who feels have threatened his values.
Both series takes the mecha theme and presents them as instruments of destruction. Seemingly, both series involves a faction of experienced pilots of these mecha that seems to threaten the main characters' existence.
Both series also have a school life setting and there seems to be hints of romance, drama, comedy, action, and plot twists.
If you enjoyed Code Geass more than you should have, you would probably enjoy kakumeiki valvrave more than you should have. This definitely applies to Mecha, Super Power, Romance anime lovers.
To quote one of my friend: "Kakumeiki is so bad that it is good!"
Somewhat similar, both sharing genres and a backbone theme of the main characters having to battle to survive in their environments. The two series are big on the 'Mecha' theme along with showing nice character and relationships development, supported with good vibrant action and nice colourful art.
Valvrave is Code Geass with a Gundam Seed setting. Think of Code Geass from Suzaku's pov. Give Suzaku Geass and take away his military background. L Elf is Lelouch with military background but you don't get to see his great military tactics. That's basically it. yeup...
Both anime are happening in the future where 2-3 countries have taken over the whole world and one small country is fighting them. Both are mecha anime and both protagonists have super powers that are similar one can command people and others can take over people's bodies. Also both are great anime.
The whole "rebellion against ruling government thing" is there. Mecs are also there. Battle strategies and badass characters are VERY there. Also emotional turmoil and "as;kdksj" feels are there. Just watch it, you'll like it.
- The director of this anime is one of the producers of Code Geass (CG)
- Studio Sunrise
- Similar Mech designs
- Supernatural element
- Set in a school/battlefield setting
Valvrave takes elements from Code Geass (character, story, small powers vs large powers etc) and plays them out in a different way.
Both involve mecha and has a plot where they want to become an independent nation also has a genius that leads them.
Imagine Code Geass without "magical eyes", mechs, ideas like "the one who yells louder wins", immortal women and stupid idealism (hi Suzaku). You with me so far? Now, imagine Code Geass where there are dozens of great commanders like Lelouch on both sides, where political intrigues, plots and schemes are far from uncommon. Imagine battles of epic proportions and war on the galactic scale, where winning side is decided only by commanders intelligence, number of troops, their morale and available resources, not superunits like Lancelot. Do this and you've invented LoGH.
In Both the hero is nobility. Lelouch was a discarded prince while Reinhard was a poor noble. But both want to remove the nobility from power. Both have grand plans to unify the world for the sake of their sisters. Both are charismatic and have strong allies and enemies. Both are Genius military guys and will make sacrifices for the grand dream.
Aristocratic governments, political machinations, Xanatos' gambits, the whole shebang.
While the stories are worlds apart, two characters are very similar. Both Suzaku and Yang Wenli fight on the side of corrupt governments. Though it would simply be easier for them to join Lelouch and Reinhard respectively, they instead decide to take the hard road and fight for their sense of justice. Both Suzaku and Yang Wenli have to face adversity and under appreciation. They know that there are obvious flaws in their governments, but they fight for the hope that they might fix the problems internally through hard work and dedication and create a justly ruling government for future generations. Both are modest but also have great skill in being the only one's who can stop their opponents from complete dominance. If Suzaku and Yang Wenli did not exist, both Lelouch and Reinhard would have easily achieved their goals very early in both series.
Hubris. Revenge. Noblesse Oblige. Revolution. Heroics. Anti-Heroics. Tragedy. Power grabs. Machiavellian schemes. Funny European names. If you like those, then you'll like both shows.
In addition, both stories follow a young man who wants revenge by increasing his power until he can succeed in overthrowing the monarchy because of the Emperor being a jackass who ruined the life of the protagonist's sister.
Code Geass is essentially a "down to earth" (literally) version of Legend of the Galactic Heroes, and I don't mean that in a condescending way.
Since the basic plot and characters are similar, I thought I'd outline some of the main differences between the two shows. Oh, and I'm also writing this under the assumption that people like these shows primarily because of the strategy behind the battles.
Some minor spoilers may be included. You have been warned.
Legend of Galactic Heroes
1. There are Lelouches on both sides (i.e. people other than Lelouch are not portrayed as whimpering idiots).
2. There is none of that "I have the Nightmare with more guns than you so I win" crap. Actual strategy and tactics are demonstrated throughout the whole show - formation, movement, timing, geography etc.
3. Suzaku, the ridiculous idealist who must say and do what he thinks is right, doesn't exist (replaced by a slightly less vocal Kircheis).
4. At one point, LoGH becomes difficult to follow which its detailed storyline, huge cast of characters and the lengthy timeline over which the show spans.
5. There are no supernatural powers that allow you to control people. Both commanders don't start from zero in the first place, so they have no need for Geass. Lelouch didn't need Geass as much once he established himself either.
1. Lelouch actually loses...many times. Maybe it's just me, but I swear the main commanders in LoGH don't ever "lose"; Reinhard wins by decimating the Alliance's forces, but Yang also wins because he pulled off a miraculous retreat - everybody wins! Yeah...no.
2. CG definitely has better graphics. Something from 1988 just can't compare...
3. Reinhard, the super-genius robot, doesn't exist (replaced by a slightly more human Lelouch).
4. I feel CG, even without Geass, is less realistic in general; by less realistic, I mean there are "unbelievable coincidences" happening all over the place.
5. There are more obvious plot holes. For example, the fact that Lelouch never commands anyone to obey all his commands (until the end of R2)...is a major one.
Watch whichever. Hell, watch both. Even if I don't sound very supportive, I really think they're both amazing.
Similar themes around war with intelligent commanders.
But focus heavily on tactics and strategy.
Empire, politics, rebellions, good characters and all that jazz
Both have battles that don't rely on strength in numbers or the capability of weapons to fight. They rely on strategies and tactics.
Lelouch/Zero can compare to Reinhard because they are both tactical geniuses, as is Yang, Wenli from LOGH.
Both anime give a clear explanation on how their world is run and the background of it.
Both have protagonists fighting for their respective sisters.
Both have entertaining battles (Personally I enjoyed the battles in LOGH more)
Both main characters have large ambitions and are seeking revenge on something.
CG is essentially LOGH with a watered-down plot and characters.
Both the protagonists of Kuroshitsuji and Code Geass are very similar - from the fact they both follow the way of self-destruction and vengeance to the order issuing abilities and proficiency in chess.
In general, Ciel looks like a chibi version of Lelouch, not smart and skilled enough to pwn anyone he wants through strategy, relying on his butler Sebastian instead. (btw one of Shinigami in Kuroshitsuji is voiced by Jun Fukuyama.) English nobility, royal family members, tons of pathos, the only difference is XIX and XXI centuries, so no mecha in Kuroshitsuji.
Both Ciel from Kuroshitsuji and Lelouch from Code Geass have similar personalities. They're both machiavellian types who would do anything to achieve their goals. And they both have french names (<--- totally beside the point...). Although the settings are quite different, I liked Ciel for the same reasons I liked Lelouch, and enjoyed both shows mainly because of these two characters.
I know what You think. That I'm out of my mind but believe me! These 2 animes have 1 important thing that makes them similar. It's main hero's character. Both boys (Lelouch and Ciel) are not some pure hearted knights that are shouting about Wolrd Peace, Justice and Love for Everyone. They are cunning, smart and they have blood on their hands becouse for their goal they ready to sacrifice everything and everyone. Traumatic past is also included. If You like this kind of characters or at least You like to watch animes with these kind of heroes, the 2 animes are for You!
Both main character (Lelouch and Ciel) have lost something valuble to them. Each strikes a contract with a mysterious person in order to gain the power for their revenge (for Ciel its Sebastian and for Lelouch, C.C.). Both of the main character's play a mean game of chest, seeing everyone they work with or are close to as nothing but their pawns in this game. Both Sebastain and C.C fallow their contractee's around in order to make sure they stay safe and that they will in return gain their end of the contract.
Each character facing a sense of battle's and betrayals along the way in order to react both their goals. Both series contain side trips of humor, action, strategy and a dark tone to it (for Code Geass its more of a dark-ish not completely dark.)
Both are about a royal main character, same chess, although Code Geass has abit more "chess" to it.
They are both are making a contract.
In both of these series, the protagonist is a person of high status who is proficient in chess and mind games. Both Lelouch and Ciel are driven by their hatred and make a contract with a supernatural being to fulfill their goals. Their contractors are also similar in some ways. If Sebastian was female, I suppose he would be a lot like C.C. Sebastian and C.C. both commonly make playful jabs at their contractors throughout the two series, and hold high importance in keeping their contractors alive. Lizzie and Shirley are also a bit similar. These series are also both set in British settings (although the Britain in Code Geass is futuristic whereas Kuroshitsuji is set in the Victorian Era) and deal with politics in some way or form (Code Geass much more so). They can also both have very dark moments as well as very comedic ones, and fair amounts of fanservice (for both the ladies and the men). Both of these series have ambiguous endings that require you to watch the second season/series for a true conclusion.
Both Ciel and Lelouch seek revenge against those who wronged them when they were young. Although that theme is only for Code Geass during the first season, but saying more would spoil it. Both characters also made a contract with an unknown being in order to achieve their goals and attain power.
The characters in both Code Geass and Black Butler are very ambiguous in terms of morality. The villians aren't totally evil, and the good guys (Lelouch and Ciel in particular) aren't totally good. Both main characters also have some kind of "secret weapon" that they use to get their way. In Code Geass, it is Lelouch's ability Geass. In Black Butler, it is Ciel's butler Sebastian.
The main characters both out on revenge meet a supernatural being willing to forge a contract with them that gives these boys the ability and power to extract their revenge on those they have come to so despise fiercely. Their secret hidden inside one of their eyes both Ciel and Lelouch give a dramatic twist to their stories unlike any anime I have seen so far.
Both anime have a main character who gain the aid of a supernatural being (C.C and Sebastian) in order to obtain their goals. They also lost someone close to them (Lelouch, his mother. Ciel, his family), and are determined to have their revenge.
Lelouch makes a contract with and witch, and Ciel makes one with a demon. Both titular characters have a mysterious eye power (Although they both have different abilities, Lelouch uses his Geass have absolute obedience while Ciel can call Sebastian, no matter where he is)
The main characters both gain powers and sacraficed parts of themselves to gain something. Both have a lot of daddy issues.
Superpowers, ancient evil conspiracies, awesome fight scenes, and a fast-paced story with tons of jokes thrown in.
Suspense, great power, great characters, militar strategies and war. Code Geass has less of a plot and undeveloped secondary characters comparing to FMA Brotherhood but its story manages to keep you on your seat nevertheless.
Code Geass and FMA: Brotherhood both combine great action sequences with superb plotlines that explore subjects such as immortality, government oppression, and genocide.
Both series are based around a group fighting against an much bigger portion of society. Both involve high amounts of military action, political affairs, violence against citizens, and unnatural powers. Some of characters traits can be retaliated when comparing these shows and both have something to do with the destruction of a once powerful country.
Both have the main character go on a very perilous journey which will effect the world.
Both end up having to get help from other people along the way.
Both deal with aspects of loyalty, friendship, hardship, trust, etc
Both have great story lines, that have great character development.
Both have great fight scenes.
Code Geass revolves more around mechas. I was not a huge mecha fan however I loved Code Geass.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (FMAB) revolves more around magic. I did not have any preconceived notions of what to expect from FMAB and I loved the anime.
If you are on the fence watch the first 5-10 episodes. If you liked one of these anime I can almost guarantee that you will be hooked. I love both of these anime and if you like one, you will almost with out a doubt like the other.
While these series are very different they are also very alike. There is a certain percentage of people that like one and not the other but the vast majority of people will like both a lot. The main difference is that Code Geass has some plot holes while Fullmetal Alchemist is basically flawless in that regard. However these are both shounens which offer a little more than just fighting. Code Geass is both dumber and smarter while Fullmetal Alchemist is way more serious as well as slower. That doesn't change the fact that these are both excellent series and I recommend watching both of them if you like shounens or if you like the world at war concept from either Fullmetal (the whole ishbalan plot) or Code Geass (Britannia ruling the world).
Both have conspiracy by the governers and supernatural aspect. They are about same length as a series. They both are non-filer and doesn't contain unnecessary scenes in order to keep story fluesnt. Action scenes are similarly attractive as FMA:B combat's are based on alchemy and Code Gaeass combat's are mecha echol but not your typical lame fight scenes
Both are animes that deserve the adjective epic, in every sense.
To be more specific, both feature a really great plot, great characters and amazing action scenes. In CG mechas and strategy are the stars in action scenes, while in FMA:B that rol belongs to alchemy (and a bit of strategy too). Both animes have a really great ending and you will be rating them with a 9 or 10 before the end.
Both anime's are about a country and it's politics and main character being really involved with it, also both main characters have a special 'power'.
same miilitary genre..tragic past..flashbacks.. supernatural ability..Similiar uniforms and even music in the background.
Both series deal with supernatural abilities in a war setting. In each series, best friends become separated by events beyond their control (ie. war). The style of the art and animations is very similar and even the uniforms they wear are quite similar.
Watching first episodes of Code Geass immediatelly reminded me of 07-Ghost. They have very similar animation at some points and a very similar storyline. If you enjoyed 07-Ghost, definatelly watch Code Geass immediatelly.
The storyline might be quite different, but the design's so similar that you could actually think it was made of the same guy. Specially the character design. I think these two animes are pretty similar with two different storylines. Enjoy!
Two best friends - one a tactical genius with a tragic past, ripped apart by a war they're both swept up in. Characters have a supernatural ability. The art style and uniforms are extremely similar.
Both main characters were first in the empire ruling and then, after the killing of someone close to them, both turned against them and swore to avenge.
07-Ghost follows the almost exact same pattern as Code Geass. Even though they have nothing to do with each other production-wise, They are oddly alike in almost every aspect. Granted, Code Geass is generally a better series due to the fact that it was made by better producers. Everything is similar; from the "fantasy world", to the characters, the overall mood to the show, the style of the clothes and art, backround music, and even the voice actors!!! It's like another Code Geass . . . only completely different!!!! (if that makes sense ^ ^)
Very similar storyline and characters.
Both series feature male protagonists whose goal is to fix their country. They each have a powerful means to do so.
Both share a mysterious main character who refuses to let the audience in on his secrets. They also include love interest/s that share the same awe for their hero. Both main characters sketch that line between right and wrong without turning you away from them. If you liked the magnitude of one you'll enjoy the scale of the other.
Both series are about 2 incredibly intelligent young men who wish to shape "Japan" into a better country. Armed with their smarts and a unique gift - in Codes Geass it is a supernatural gift, while in Higashi it is technology - these two protagonists embark on roller-coaster rides of adventure, danger, doubt, denial and mystery in order to fulfill their dreams, dreams that are not just for themselves but their countrymen.
Both series are intense and will keep you interested until the end.
Both feature someone trying to "fix" Japan, be it with a vast global conspiracy or giant mechs.
Both main protagonist are smart in their own unique ways. Each of their moves are strategically planned and have tons of mysteries behind them. At first glance, both character might not be similar, but throughout the stories, their ways of thinking are pretty similar.
In Code geass, lelouch can command anyone when they look into his eyes... but in Higashi no Eden you can request anything that seems impossible with a phone...
The story is as good as each other too... definitely must watch!
Well, I already made a recommendation for anyone who watched Eden of the East to watch Death Note, so this should be pretty obvious. The same premise that exists in Code Geass and Death Note. Given enough power, one individual can save the world. However, Code Geass and Eden of the East share another thing in common. Akira and Lelouch both have this need to be seen by everyone as a villain. That way, after their dead, supposedly all of the evil will go away and everyone can sing Kumbaya. Horrid logic in the real world, but heck, it works great in anime! So, if you want to see the main character of your anime vilified until he is but a shell of his prior self, then these anime are for you.
If you liked Fullmetal Alchemist, then you might also like Code Geass because of the genres that are similar to both animes. They both deal with the male protagonist having to deal with the military, fantasy like mecha items and tons of action involved. And the best part in my opinion is that there really aren't many fillers in these animes so it makes it worth watching =]
Both series make strong statements about several issues, although the primary similarities lay in their critiques of imperialism and war.
Both of them focus on learning from mistakes.They also deal with sibling love.
Edward & Alphonse in Fullmetal Alchemist & Lelouch & Nunnally in Code Geass. Also there are a lot of unexpected deaths and military.
So if u like one of them, chances are you'll like the other as well.
i just like it :) i think it is both really entertaining and really good to watch. you will not be dissapointed.
Both fall into the military genre and have a large amount of action and violence. The characters have their own, special abilities which work in similar ways (Edward using alchemy and Lelouch using Geass) and learn from their wrong doings. While they also have their silly moments and awesome characters, both are rather harsh and can be a real tear-jerker.
These two series tend to have very similar moods and both have strong lead characters, as well as surprisingly involved plots.
It has Jun Fukuyama voicing the protagonist, a boy who has a great power in his eyes and that sometimes goes berserk. The plot is about war and revenge between Royalty, the purpose of the one of the protagonists is to build a better world by becoming king, no matter what sacrifices he must do. Also contains Best friends turning into enemies.
Both series are anti heroic fantasies with badass protagonists who are voiced by the same guy.
(This is mostly for people who've watched Code Geass)
There are similarities in plot (with one character seeking revenge against a member of the royal family) and characters (Ferris' dango is C.C.'s pizza). They are a bit different but the political elements common in both series might mean those who like Code Geass might enjoy Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu (The Legend of the Legendary Heroes - don't let the title put you off), although it doesn't start out as serious as Code Geass, but once the characters are explored a bit it does so.
The biggest similarity which might mean fans of either series would enjoy the other is that a main character must contemplate the sacrifices he must make in order to change the world, like in Death Note. One thing you should know before you start the series is that it appears the anime has lasted only one season and in that time hasn't covered the whole story in the light novel series it is based on.
It is a very good anime and in some ways alot like Code Geass,the main character of Densetsu has the eyes of an "monster" witch causes trouble on his missions,once he goes out of control it's nearly impossible to stop him.
same VA,eyepowers and plain badassness
Political intrigue, mystical powers, bloodshed, and varying degrees of slap stick comedy on the side.
Mass battles, twists, fan service, great stories.
Rebellion and the over throwing of a oppressive regime is a key plot line in both Code Geass and Utawarerumono.
Both have very strong war storylines, and yet are both absolutely amazing. If you like one then you are sure to like the other.
Similar "rebellion" and "oppression" motifs, as well as animation style.
Both are about a mysterious masked man leading a group of soldiers in revolution against an oppressive government, both have plenty of bloody action with hints of comedy throughout, and both have a supernatural theme. They both utilize a bit of semi-deep strategy where it's more intelligent that just ramming people against each other and seeing who lives, but isn't so detailed and precise that the plot can't move on.
both series deal with rebellions against a greater power
Basically Mahiro is kinda like lelouch... Hakaze is like C.C
and Aika is like euphemia, and yoshino is like suzaku...
Mahiro helps out Hakaze just like how Lelouch helps out C.C..
both animes have a strong duo of protagonists who make/break the story as it takes its course, the storyline changes with the protagonists decisions, they are motivated from the death of a loved one.
both protagonists are smart, strong willed, and driven for revenge/resolution/content for a loved one, and they are accompanied by another childhood friend who also partakes a significant role which also decides the course of the storyline.
both contain unexpected/or expected twists/plots, and they do contain the usual portrayal of genres, but they both contain something indifferent that keeps the viewer on edge.
they are similar in the duo protagonists driven for a reason from the death of a loved one, and they will do anything it takes to bring them to satisfaction.
Ever heard great minds think alike? Yoshino is a great thinker, just like Lelouch. Both are powerless when it's hand to hand combat but excel when out thinking opponents. Both Lelouch and Yoshino need the strong opposite in the duo. In Code Geass, ita Suzaku and Zetsuen no Tempest it's Mahiro. Also, I can see a relationship between Suzaku and Nunnally almost like Yoshino and Aika. Lastly,C.C and Hakaze are women with an ability. Without that ability they become useless and they both cling on to the thinker.
In both shows, the main character does whatever it takes to get his revenge on the one who killed a loved one. In Code Geass, it's Lelouch's mother, while in Zetsuen no Tempest, it's his step sister. Lelouch uses geass which he got from C.C from a contract and Mahiro used magic talismans he got from Hakaze. One of the differences is that in Code Geass, Lelouch is trying to create a peaceful world for his sister to live in, but in Zetsuen no Tempest, Mahiro couldn't care less what happens to the world so long as he gets his revenge.
Both are tales about revenge, changing the world, and the dealings of fate. They are very dramatic & epic with great characters (even great female ones!).
Code Geass (R2 included) and Zetsuen no Tempest are quite similar in many ways ranging from underlying themes, presentation, and characters. They both share different Shakespearean elements and themes reflected in Hamlet (revenge, martyrdom, etc.), but this aspect emphasized more in ZnT for different plot reasons (that I will not mention for spoilers).
The greatest similarity is between the characters. Lelouch is most similar to Yoshino- both are cognitive individuals who remain calm even when the time is most tense and think things through. They both also have secrets that make and shape their character. Mahiro is most similar to Suzaku- both are rash individuals who jump straight into the action defying reason. Both also have a death of a loved one that fuels their motives.
There are many more similarities between them, but the key ones (in my opinion) are listed here.
the moment I saw Hyobu, he fitted right into the league of extremely evil bishounen Lelouch and Raitou.
and he got his very own Suzaku too!
confident, arrogant and style. is he really the good guy?
a feeling of excitement and terror. supernatural eye powers. rebels. Both Geass and this brand new ESP series have it all!
In both series, the main protagonist plays the role of a seemingly anti-hero. They have similar personalities and intellect as well as their own ambitions.
Although presented differently, both series features a sort of superpower theme. As thus, expect some battles and action.
Both series also adapts a similar feeling.
Both shows feature a charismatic antihero as the main, and a group fighting against persecution under his leadership. They both involve the creative use of super powers to fulfill their goals, and there are sympathetic characters working on both sides.
The Unlimited-Hyoubu Kyousuke and Code Geass are pretty similar in terms of the main protagonists. Both are scheming materminds, with a rebellious outlook on many things. I was suprised actually to find a character similar to Lelouche.
The settings are completely different, as one is in a regular city, with most of the series taking place in a high school, and the other is a city that is pretty much war-torn, with prisons and testing facilities of all sorts.
Both the art and the concept of both are highly interesting for any of you who like to watch characters' schemes and plots unfold.
The main heroes are alike: they're both more bad guys than normal heroes. Everything in these series is ambiguous - no ideal heroes or fiends. You can also see a lot of politics in both anime.
Gundam 00 isn't as good as code geass but there were multiple times where i felt as though i'd seen the same thing in code geass, in gundam Setsuna believes he can change the world with the power of a gundam, and in CG leluch believes he can change the world with Geass, both shows have losses that the main character and everyone aroud must go through, death and suffering.
If you are looking for a strategy anime that is ingenious..then look no further! Gundam 00 Has all that you look for. Hard to follow story: Check! Comedy: None. Stratagies: Oh yea... THIS ANIME IS RECOMMENDED FOR HARDCORE ANIME FANS ONLY!!!
Both have a rebel group who rises up in rebellion against a corrupt government. The Black Knights in Code Geass and Katharon in 00.
they are both using mecha to fight.
Same atmosphere, where they all try to change the world and make it a better place. And with all the robot frighting.....
Both of these anime are quite similar if observed in-dept. These pair of mecha starts with a girl appearing before both of the male protagonists, give them powers and use them for their own agendas. Obviously, another one of those similarities is the art. Their character styles have these easily-noticed long, slender arms and legs plus Lelouch and Alma's facial structure are quite alike.
Same type of drawing and it shows some remarkable caracteristics in both Animes (The factor for example)
The art is similar based on the fact that one of they both share Yuriko Chiba as one of the people in charge of character design. Alma's face is basically Lelouch's face and they share the commonality of having color changing eyes. Lelouch has the Geass while Alma has the Sacred Seven power that turns his eye red.
Both have the same style of animation and the characters look the same. If you're talking about the story though, Code Geass is far better.
Both are about a great strategists who are able to foresee the actions of their rivals. Both make you want to watch the second episode immediately.
My recommendation is One Outs. Now, you may be asking yourself, "Wait. How could a baseball anime possibly be ANYTHING like Code Geass?" The answer is simple--the main characters are both are master strategists who cannot be outwitted by their enemies. Tokuchi Toua has the same cold, meticulous and ruthless method of plotting as Lelouch, and he manages to outsmart even the most sinister of opponents. They are antiheroes who the viewer can vastly admire.
As far as the baseball in One Outs, it's only a means of conveying Toua's talents to manipulate his opponents and predetermine how others around him will respond to a situation. Even if you don't like baseball, if you can enjoy seeing how a strategist works out his next move, you will probably like this series--perhaps even more so if you like the premise of a master gambler.
Both protagonists are the cold calculating type, I recommend One Outs even if you hate baseball.
This accounts both R1 and R2, This may seem like a strange recommendation to those who watched either one. Looking deeper I recommended these two because they both revolve around human psychology and how to manipulate them.
I love both and what i can say is when Tokuchi(one outs protag.) is one the field the game their playing is no longer baseball it depicted more as a war.
Both have a very intelligent male protagonist and supernatural female companion on a journey to accomplish their goals.
One is more focused on the military aspects of life while the other is focused on the economy. You can guess which is which.
An intelligent man (Lelouch for Code: Geass, and Lawrence for Spice and Wolf) meets an extraordinary woman (C.C. for the former, and Holo for the latter). Together they venture for their goals. If you like main characters that think of elaborate, well-though out plans, these anime are worth a watch. Although Spice and Wolf is leaning towards Romance.
The main plot may differ by a lot, but the idea is somewhat similar if you look at it. Also, both Male MC's are voiced by the same VA, which makes it that much awesome.
Spice and Wolf is just Code Geass, but with farming and economics.
Both Season 1/2. Regards to loss of memory/regain/change what's out there!! You will not be disappointed, that much I can assure you.
Code Geass isn't a psychological thriller but it is similar to Mirai Nikki in terms of cliffhangers and plot twists. Code Geass and Mirai Nikki both focus on how certain characters use their special abilities (Geass and the Future Diary) in order to achieve their goal. Code Geass is more upbeat and grand while Mirai Nikki is much more gloomy and melodramatic.
Both quite dark at times, both action packed, both have engaging lead characters who are very bright but come across as wimpy occasionally. Both make you think as you watch, and are suspenseful and engaging.
Tyranny by an unjust ruler/empire are present in both animes along with rebellions by a mysterious figure (Zero and Red Whirlwind). Friendships/romances on both sides of a war. Many other similarities as well. Both are awesome.
Hm...epic fight scenes, plot changes every episode, dictator father, fantasy-like secret that deals with the world...and Shirley kind of looks like Juliet in a way. Code Geass has better art and plot though.
Both have rebellions by a misteryus character *Red Whirlwind and Zero*
Both have love and Suzaku x Euphemia reminds me a little the reletionship between Romeo x Julieta.
Both have action and war.
But Code Geass is a mecha anime and Romeo x Julieta is historical but they have the same feel you have to watch them and you'll know what I mean.
both start off with a happy day and then somthing happens and the main character ends up getting a power but in Pandora hearts the power is not used to take over the world.Lloyd remineds me of Break and I love both anime and hate none of the characters in both
in both series, the main character forms a "contract" with a girl in order to save something and also help the girl to do a favor, in order for her wish to come true. also the voices for both of the girls sound very similar even though they were not done by the same seiyuu. but if you liked either one, I'm sure you'll like the other ^^
the main characters made a contract towards a chain (pandora hearts) and a woman who is immortal (code geass)
Well, in both series (SPOILER!) it's about two childhood friends who actually battle against each other, and don't know, like the two gangs of DRRR and the black knights 'nd the knights of the round
Both have lovable characters, though the quirks of the cast in Durarara!! makes each character more distinct and stand out more.
Both have a Magnificent Bastard who is extremely intelligent and use chess to plan their moves.
Both have suspenseful battles and intriguing plot twists that keep you on edge.
The show Durarara!! is a show full of chaos that connects several events. Code Geass is full of controlled chaos. The characters Izaya Orihara and Lelouch Vi Britannia are very similar. They both play chess and or chess like games. They both are in control of what is around them and are even voiced by the same actor in the English Dub (Johnny Yong Bosch).
School life humour and mecha drama, powered by ~FABULOUSNESS~. Star Driver augments it with pseudo-Freudian psychology while Geass prefers its politics, but they definitely take a similar approach to the same general framework.
The mecha and high school story lines are similar in both Code Geass and Star Driver. The character designs are both colorful and long/lanky (though the Geass characters are designed by CLAMP, and Star Driver seems to mimic the lean style). Code Geass focuses more on politics and ideals for character motivations, while Star Driver is so far about dreams and relationships.
Star Driver may not have the "grand" story Code Geass has, but both have slick animation, bright colors, crazy costumes, mecha fights, fanservice, and school life on the side.
Both involve deep, brilliant, complex storylines which have you sat on the edge of your seat all the way through. Masterpieces, involving lots of character development and twists and turns in the story. Although they are different genres, both have high emotional content and have the ever advancing (with every episode) sense of doom.
Both are very story-driven, with lots of suspense and twists. Both also have numerous aristocratic main characters.
Main protagonist in Gankutsuou is also an anti-hero but unlike code geass this anime focuses more on the psychological side of the things rather than straight on combat.
The main characters in the both seires are similar, both made by CLAMP, the story is similar to...
Maybe it's CLAMP's story telling way that makes me think this recommendation is a good idea.
In both, Code Geass (especially the R2 part) and X TV:
* The main cast chooses their role in war to accomplish what they believe in, and both sides are simultaneously "right" and "wrong".
* The main character risks everything he has to make sure the people he loves will have a future (Kamui, for Fuma and Kotori; Lelouch for his sister Nunnally).
* The future, human emotions/actions and wishes play a very important part in the story.
* A tragedy waits to happen (and does happen).
If you liked any of those aspects in one of the series, you'll probably enjoy it in the other, too.
Well, considering CLAMP did the character designs and thus made Lelouch look like a carbon copy of Kamui...
They also explore similar themes and are beautiful and tragic. Code Geass, however, is fanservicey while X is not at all as it is shoujo. Geass can also be more frustrating to watch at times.
Both are centered around conflicting countries/worlds with deep racial ties (Elevens vs Brittanians, Earth vs Colonies). The main characters are young men and women who are torn between two worlds both morally and on the battlefield, and must deal daily with moral ambiguity. All conflict in both series are mostly settled by mechanical suits and politics is the motive behind every move.
The mech combat is very well done and any fan of mech anime or of futuristic combat will appreciate both series.
Both are filled with battles that are control versus freedom. The Gundams in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing are the representation of freedom and the Black Knights in Code Geass are a representation of freedom. Also both series have different forms of mobile suits in them.
Both of these wonderful series are very unique among mecha anime, in that they do what most don't do that often: Mix two polar oppisate genres (Science Fiction and Fantasy), and do it wonderfully well. The mecha desgins for both have a royal, fantasy asthetic to them, and both shows have very eleborate settings and well developed characters and themes. Even if you aren't particularly interested in mecha anime as a genre, you will find something to like in both of these.
Both series can get rather intense (though CG is much darker), with great mecca, but also developments between various characters, leaving you on edge until the very end... can't say more without revealing the endings
Both share very similar aspects. The mecha used in IV are fairly similar to the Knightmares of CG in their size and the way they move. It shares a similar theme of rebels rising up against a government, and there are many other obvious similarities along the way. IV is of course, much shorter than CG, but if you liked either anime then you might like the other
Innocent Venus and Code Geass share many similarities. Both have a dystopian future where terrorists try to resist an oppressive ruling class. Both have mechas but are not traditional 'mecha animes' - neither treats mecha battles as the main focus. Lelouch and Suzaku of Code Geass are somewhat similar to Jin and Jo of Innocent Venus, respectively, though their adventures are fairly different. (But all of them are really pretty to look at ;-)) Both animes also involve a mysterious girl who is being chased by the government for a reason that is not revealed until later. Both have tons of action and interesting characters, twists and turns and mysteries. If you like one of these awesome series you will probably like the other.
If your favourite parts of Code Geass are the elite private school hijinks and crazy student council members you will love Utena.
Likewise, Utena fans who enjoyed the series' action sequences and Machiavellian scheming should enjoy Code Geass.
I wonder why no one mentioned the Anthy/C.C. parallel. IMO, C.C. is second to The Rose Bride in rose-briding (and there are even outright visual quotes from Utena lampshading this role of hers). Also, character designs in Utena and CG bear some similarity.
I was actually kinda shocked with how similar these two shows were (especially considering the two are different genres).
Code Geass and Umineko are both genius concepts, wrapped in mindless and over-the-top violence... with a nice garnish of mind-screw.
Code Geass is about one man's battle against a corrupt empire while Umineko is about one man's battle against a powerful witch. In fact, without even looking at the shows as a whole, you could draw similarities between Lelouch Lamperouge/Vi Britannia and Battler Ushiromiya. Both are highly intelligent, though stubborn and arrogant. Both also care about those close to them, and this care leads to some reckless decisions.
Beyond those two, Code Geass and Umineko also share: Unhinged girls (Nina Einstein and Maria Ushiromiya), evil yet hilariously badass old men (Charles zi Britannia and Kinzo Ushiromiya) and even indifferent but powerful people who are more than they initially appear (Schneizel el Britannia and Frederica Bernkastel). Not to mention they both have characters named Kanon, who are subservient to someone else and pretty satisfied with that.
Going back to the two series as a whole, Code Geass and Umineko both take a realistic concept (war in Code Geass, a murder mystery in Umineko) and add a magic element to it (though Umineko makes you question whether the magic is real). They both contain references to mythology and famous works, such as Dante's Inferno.
However, Code Geass and Umineko also share a drawback: they suffer from rushing. In Umineko's case, the anime was an adaptation which cut out a significant portion of the original work's content. In Code Geass' case, the second season tried to end every plot point introduced in the first season... which required covering events at ridiculous speeds.
In summary, it is important to note that Code Geass and Umineko are not very similar in terms of plot or genre. Code Geass is an action series while Umineko is a mystery. Instead, it is the themes, concepts and a few characters that tie the two together.
Despite this, I am confident that if you liked one of these animes, you will like the other (and if you LOVED one of them, watch the other one... right now).
The only difference is that umineko lacks a plot for changing the world.
Also umineko has a lot of gothic style characters...
Everything else including epicness is the same in both animes.
- Both has an unjust justice system that almost does not give a damn about victims and casualties..
- Both does not shy from showing you death mercilessly
- Both anime shows some MC that defy the current laws and standard of society.
Both have the same premise of bringing down a corrupt government and questions whether it's better to bring it down from outside or work from within to change it. Both have psychological and ideological themes that will have you thinking about for a long time after you've finished watching and make a point to confuse you about whether the ends or the means are correct (Code Geass is more emphatic on this) and that not everything is black and white (well duh): you'll have to reflect and decide on your own about what you think is right.
As for differences, Psycho-Pass lacks the super-powered piloted robots in Code Geass but makes up for it using "Dominators" (huge badass guns, basically). Psycho-Pass surpasses CG in terms of artwork and animation by far, however. PP also doesn't mess up its characters arcs like Code Geass (although CG's first season is better than the second in terms of this).
Because its unique and i love the plot/story! I don't even know how to explain my excitement to you, because this anime, IS A MUST. If you're an otaku, then you must definitely watch this, but if you watched this already then read the manga, there's a lot of twists and cliffhangers though, and you have to wait for it to update and stuffs like that, but the best part is, ITS WORTH IT.
Both protagonists have a dark side to them, both being "Demons" in their own ways.
Also, both of them have to keep their true identity a secret from their close ones.
Both share a main character blessed (or cursed) with a special power. Allowing them to change the world. Or try to... Awesome soundtrack, character development, an impossible romance, lots of plot twists, incredible seiyus (voiceovers). In the end you can't stop watching this after 4-5 episodes, you're hooked and need to finish it off =)
great animes , lots of fun watching them , the thinking procedure just takes everything
Lelouch is britannian and he doesnt like the way his father(the emperor of britannia) talks about how the strong shall crush the weak. So he started a rebellion.
Saya is a chiroptera(kinda vampire), and she thinks that Chiroptera are decimating humans, so she joins Aka Tate to fight against her own kin.
Immortality, war, power and betrayals - both series have that, though CG is much deeper and has much better character developments.
Both series focuses mainly on nations fighting together. While Code Geass has deep storyline, complicated characters and universe, Magi has a coloured universe, lighter with a bit of comedy as well. But don't worry, Magi goes often in dark scenes. A lot of blood.
Both anime have messed up leader/ruler treating people badly and making them suffer leading to war between government and people, and an all out war between territories. Also involve supernatural. Code Geass has darker and deeper plot than Magi, but Magi has comedic touch. However, they both have great battle scenes.
well its actually both this and r2 the main character and his best friend developed from best of friends to the worst of enemies
I found myself noting a lot of similarities between the two shows, in the first few episodes of Dragonaut particularly. The main characters of both, Jin and Lelouch, both go through traumatic experiences concerning their families and end up basically alone. Both protagonists have cheerful/naive friends who turn angry and bitter against them. Both involve a mysterious girl with unusual abilities. Both involve some type of government corruption and military power, including large machine type weapons that the combatants ride in/on.
Code Geass though, is more intricate and has a lot more twists and turns to the storyline; as well as the characters coming across as a lot more dimensional and engaging.
VK is a more shojo-ish, but both series have characters with painful histories, betrayals, rankings, wars, some romance and supernatural. Though CG is much more thought provoking and grim in nature.
Both shows have the same visual feel to it. Both have romance, action, and are emotional roller coasters that will keep you on edge and wanting more. Code geass may have more action and Vampire Knight may be more romanced based, but they are both series you should check out.
If you've seen one, definitely watch the other! :D
Code Geass and Gun X Sword were made by the same director, Goro Taniguchi, and some of the same staff members too. Both series involve giant mecha combat, although Code Geass starts off as more realistic in this respect. Revenge is an important theme in both stories, plus they also share a number of ideas and their characters have a few similar characteristics. Gun X Sword benefits from being self-contained and more focused.
The plots are a bit different, but if you want to watch a mecha show with over-the-top action where the protagonist is hellbent on revenge against the guy who killed his wife or mother, you aren't far off.
Though KEY and Sunrise are two very different Studios, Code Geass and Angel Beats are similar in several ways. Both focus on a teen resistance group trying to defeat a force much more powerful than them, and both have that sort of bittersweet feeling that makes you happy and sad at the same time.
If you liked Code Geass for its deft mixing of genres, you may like Angel Beats!. Angel Beats! is not action-driven or filled with mecha like Code Geass, but, like Code Geass, it deals with complex characters and blurred lines between right and wrong. Every character has a story and a reason for doing what he or she does. Both shows have powerful, heart-breaking endings, and, while Angel Beats! is much lighter than Code Geass, both shows are moving, well-executed, and memorable.
I know these two series may seem not similar at all- Higurashi's action takes place only in one small village and there are only a few characters, while Code Geass talks about a world conflict and have a lot of charas. But, in my opinion, both animes have the same message- you have to trust your friends, and take responsibility for your sins.
Code Geass and Higurashi both initially seem kiddish, but manage to overcome that impression by the end of the first episode. The sheer quantity of emotion contained in each series is almost overwhelming, as is the ability of each to switch between being light-hearted and series almost instantaneously. Both are gripping and excellent for marathoning.
Both series are about a prince/princess becoming outcast of his/her own kingdom/empire. They both revolve around a revolution (though less literally in Scrapped Princess) and both have a main character who possesses a unique and very powerful ability.
They are both stories about a young powerless person acquiring power:
- in case of Code Geass through supernatural means
- in case of Kingdom through hard work and training
And then slowly growing to become a great leader.
I find them quite similar: Shiro from DW and C.C. from CG, cause both of them are weird attached to the main characters, but in CG we know why at the beginning and in DW not. (And maybe because both of them like eating :D)
Like my other recommendation, both main characters have a high intelligence level, and in this particular Anime, a strong sense of justice.
Both series contain a dark theme and background.
Additionally, both series' main protagonists lives are changed forever when they meet a mysterious girl who grants them a power in the pilot episode.
Both series also elements of action, drama, comedy, mecha, and later romance.
let me start by saying this: These anime are totally different in genre; Oregairu is school slice-of-life and Code Geass is sci-fi war
now here's why they're similar: the main characters are both the good guys with good intentions, but they play the roles of the villains in order to help others by becoming hated, and also, the main side-male character plays the role of the good guy who is against the main characters' decisions even though they know their intentions
Code geass and Night Head have the supernatural theme of course there is meccha in code geass and psychics in night head which differ them but they are above all both very enjoyable that will make you watch them at the end of your seat until they both finished and after you are just sad that they are finished.
Both stories involve conflict regarding terrorism, corruption, politics, family feud, war, peace, drama, and both the main character's (Naruto and Sasuke, Lelouch and Suzaku) quest and conflict are slightly similar but not exactly the same. Both are dark, morally ambiguous stories. Also there are dark, complex and twisty storyline where important things are only revealed slowly, epic plots, interesting character developments, the conflicted antihero, and the unexpected moments of comedy amid the action and intrigue.
If you liked Lelouch Lamperouge as a character, you'll probably like Victorique de Blois as well. She's a nice character whose is very intelligent and better of all - she's moe. Very moe. Although she is more near to Lawliet from Death Note it's also some enjoyable motivation to watch Gosick.
Both feature protagonists that become the leader and symbol of hope in a rebellion, whilst maintaining a close relationship to someone on the opposing side. These protagonists often achieve their goals through ridiculous or outrageous schemes that the other side was not expecting.
While the plot of these two are completely different, there are some similarities,
- main character is the commander of a group, during battle, he/she commands others to do things and outwits the opponent
- both use machines, tank in GUP, and Nightmares in C geass
- during battle the atmosphere is similar, but completely diff outside of battle
Perpetually-pissed protagonists with mommy issues. One of them protects his sister and the other is protected by his sister. If you find one of them compelling then you will find the other compelling. Both also have exceedingly slow paces.
Show may be different due to it's differences but the main Characters Lelouch and Suzaku's ideals and friendship are similar to Yuri and Flynn where Lelouch and Yuri wants to change from the outside and Suzaku and Flynn wants to change within. Both are awesome where it involves battles, politics, corruption, drama, blood, loss of allies, and friendship.
what really hit me was the fact both aren't about one man army protagonist its the other way around it isn't' how to command and support others to win. so basically strategic fighting however since i have only viewed about 6 this is all i can offer in the future i hope to write more in detail so start watching
plus obviously code geass is better but this isn't too bad either :)
Both have mecha,Action,Drama setting,
also have a school-life/miilitary setting, have main characters who gain
special powers from weird outside sources (both from "girls"),
Both series feature male protagonists whose goal is to fix humanity, is country policy............
Both have powerless male protagonists that was changed when one powerful girl appeared by his side. Becomes a monster-like creature due to his goals and overpower-ism. Both fantasy, supernatural, romance, drama, adventure and action. One involves mecha while other involves demonic creatures named Guze no Tomogara. Both has abilities to stop time.
Like Code Geass, Zoids: Genesis involves a young boy who is wrenched straight from his everyday life and is drawn into the conflict between a major military power and those who oppose it. Both characters go on to become major leaders in the resistance movements.
Ruuji Familon lives a quiet life in the village of Mirodoo, until, just after they have raised a large Zoid from the depths of the ocean, they are attacked by the vicious Bio Zoids of the Digald Empire. The Zoid they just raised, Murasame Liger, selects Ruuji as its pilot.
Main protagonist has same seiyuu (voice actor), story lines both involve a contract between the heroine and protagonist in attempt to change the world. Though Code Geass is in a more modern setting, both stories involve nobility and social hierarchy. Highly recommend Code Geass if you enjoy a story revolving around what defines justices, right or wrong and a hero attempting to change the world they live in!
Lelouch (Zero) and Bruce Wayne (Batman) are very similar but in a different world, different style, different setting, and mostly a different universe. They have a strong sense of justice by becoming vigilantes and not heroes because they have used the concept "ends justify the means" to defeat evil. Also instead of using superpowers, they mostly use gadgets despite Lelouch uses a supernatural power geass (which is not an ordinary superpower but an optical eye power). They are both geniuses living a rich life with a partner along with advanced technology. However Lelouch and Bruce later faces a series of events that will forever change everything. Code Geass is more of a mecha than crime solving and fighting but if you find one similar to the other, watch it!
Code Geass and Tsubasa: Tokyo Revelations are similar in someway whereas the main setting Japan which Tokyo is part of is in a desperate state (Japan is colonized in Code Geass and Tokyo is in ruins in Tsubasa: Tokyo Revelations) as groups such as the Black Knights and Kamui's and Fuma's respective parties search for a way to restore their homes back to normal. Lelouch's character design is similar to Kamui and Suzaku's to Syaoran due to Clamp doing both the character designs. Twists and betrayal occurs as well as revelations that will change the story forever. Both shows have dark tone and action packed fights as well though they are different in terms of style (Code Geass-Mecha and Tsubasa-Magic). Try watching one of these if you've watched one of them which will be a great addition to your collection!
-Art is very similar
-More than one female likes the main character
-Both have very good music
-Both contain comedy
(SPOILER!) -Both have the theme where you are unsure of who are the good guys, who are the bad guys, who to root for, and twists come along to where the bad guys are actually sort of the good guys in the end.
The most striking similarity is Ingra's "eye" ability to make a person answer 1 question, and Lelouch's Geass to make people do 1 thing.
As far as personality goes, Lelouch is sort of split into two with Inga and Shinjirou. While Inga is a bit crazy and risky person Shinjirou looks like very calm and smart person. Inga+ Shinjirou=Lulu.
If you enjoyed watching one, you may enjoy another.
Code geass is similar to Black cat.
-Both share similar theme. (Corrupted government and a small group of people fighting against government).
-Both protagonists have supernatural powers.
-Both have similar animation.
If you liked one be sure to watch another!
If u like mecha Then u better watch both shows here
Code geass is Really good its better then get ride! amdriver if u want character development go watch code geass
if u want sexy mechs watch get ride! amdriver
This show get ride! amdriver needs more people to watch it
so if u have seen one then u must watch the other
In both the main character is a kind of "genius" with great ability to handle difficult situations: resolving unsolvable puzzles (Phi Brain) or build real-time strategy (Code Geass).
In both the main character deals with someone in closing a "contract" and gives him an "eye-power": C.C. gives to Lelouch the Geass in his left eye and when it's activated it turns red (Code Geass); Something like this happens to Kaito when he solves a puzzle and the prize was a kind of bracelet with the power of make Kaito's brain works to max of levels, and when it's activated his right eye turns red too.
The feel of both anime is similar at times, aswell as some of the styles of animation used during the action scenes. They are both pretty serious and rarely detract from the main plot for the sake of humour. They are both action packed and visually impressive. They both deal a lot with the morals and philosophy around war and fighting. Both of the main protagonists are in high school, and are chosen by a very powerful and beautiful female assistant, who begins the series far more powerful than them, but the gap bridges as the series progresses. These female assistants are similar in demeanour, as they are humourless cold, but likeble for this very fact. They also both lived in another time.Infact these female protagonists have so much in common it's a reason alone to watch both. If one of the main things you liked about one series was the female protagonist, be prepared to fall in love again. Fighting with reference to ruling kingdoms/empires, and family ties is touched upon often in both series. It dosen't seem like many, if any others have linked these series together, which suprises me, as they share a lot of good points, so i think you may find what you liked about one in the other.
Both show's protaganists (Lelouch and Garrod) involve with the conflict by meeting a mysterious girl (C.C. and Tiffa) and would later fight for freedom from discrimination packed with powers (Geass and Newtype) and Mecha Action (Knightmare Frames and Moblie Suits).
Code geass, the action is big machines going at it. Samurai 7 has big machines getting cut down by mere men... the action is very similar in the sense that it's big fighting robots. but the stories in both are worlds apart.
Series as much concerned with government corruption, political unrest, and societal revolution as they are with the mech gimmick that become the trademark vehicles for rebellion and resistence. Both deal with a core group of students, some with tenuous ties to those in power and others with no connection at all, who gradually become increasingly involved in the political situation, and both have a relatively recognizable setting -- the near future in the case of RideBack, and a contemporary alternate timeline for Code Geass.
Both shows deal with political complexities, conquest, and war. While Code Geass takes place in an alternate Earth time line, Kiba deals with another world entirely.
Kiba has Spirits rather than the mecha of Code Geass and the plots are quite different. Geass has more comic relief and variety of mood but both share underlying supernatural mysteries, tragic events, and dark themes.
Both shows also have a set of friends (Lelouch and Suzaku in Geass, Zed and Noa in Kiba) who get caught up in different affiliations and have to struggle with their ideals and values versus friendship and loyalty.
Both go into the nature of good and evil and have characters who are almost Sociopaths. Both lucy from Elfen Lied and Lelouch kill many people and feel little or no remorse for most of them.
Ok guys are the story lines similar? Kinda, a big army vs a little army. Are the settings the same? No, one is medieval and the other is futuristic. But what realy makes these series similar are the characters. Griffith=Lelouch because they are the tactitian and guts=Suzaku because they are the soldier. Both have similar plots of trust issues, romantic tension, glorified battle scenes, and commanders trying to get revenge and rule the world. If code geass fans pick up berserk skip the first episode, watch it last. and berserk fans try to stay with the main characters and dont pay attention to the school students.
Both are anime that are concerned with political issues.
Black Knights vs Britannian Government --> Code Geass
Red faction vs Blue faction --> K
Both also contains nice drawings!
Both anime starts out small and eventually ends up being involved with the fate of the world. Both anime are also about brothers doing everything they can for their sister. Code Geass is more political whereas Penguindrum is more focused on family.
Both series are about about an exiled prince who struggles to overcome many problems and return to some form of his old life as royalty. Both princes meet many new people on their journeys who either help them out or try to hurt them. Each also has a woman who is sworn to protect him, and a mother they love dearly.
Both series deal with the supernatural and have great fight scenes, and come to amazing climaxes. They also both take place in Japan in alternate universes where characters sometimes enter other dimensions.
Both shows are about friends becoming foes, and have a lead character that becomes evil over time. Both lead characters abuse friends and foes alike to get to the top. Both also have a tragic romance aspect to them.
Yuri and Lelouch are complete opposites, but both are excellent, epic stories that deal with extraordinary powers, the paths of war, royalty, discrimination, relationships and so on. CG is basically a much darker version of KKM, minus the shonen-ai themes of KKM.
Though it may have a little less comedy thrown in, this one's also action-packed with all of the usual elements (romance, high school woes, teenagers fighting like they know what the hell they're doing etc) thrown in. Code Geass might be taking it to the next level though, you'll have to see for yourself—definitely puts you on the edge of your seat.
Both series have great intensity and drama withing their large casts of characters. Though their stories are not quite similar, they both take you on a joyride through the twists and turns in the plot. And the awesome mecha action.
Even though a little short, Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora has lovely artwork just like Code Geass. Although it seems calmer than Code Geass, Zettai Tenshi (Absolute Angels) are just as valiant as Knightmare Frames. If you liked Code Geass, you might like Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora. =)
A story on how the world can be changed. One should not follow the comformity authorities but act upon it. Nabari No Ou is such a story as well. Between the two anime , the main characters are both kings. They are born and destined to change the world they live in forever. They both possess supernatural awesome power. Although one obtained it (lelouch) and another was given it with out the knowledge of it (miharu). Strongly recommended. You won't regit it.
Both deal with the philosophical question, "Do two evils make a left?"
Incase my poor sense of humour is lost on you they both look at the stance of the lesser of two evils and whether or not an evil action can be good
Both Ichigo and Lelouch have the same English Voice Actor and they both got their powers from a girl in the first episode, both character's mother was killed before the series.
In both shows:
- Main character is a criminal
- There are two guys who are to be eternal rivals
- MC has a younger sister (just pointing it out, lol)
They give similar feel because both are action-based and that rival theme between two characters. If you liked one you should give the other a try as well.
Alternative world-setting, mecha, crazy scientists, Japanese rebels and Norio Wakamoto as the bad guy (As a side note, one of the minor characters in Kishin Corps even looked like Nunally. Think about that !)
Both involve an obvious protagonist and antagonist. However, the protagonists/main characters of both anime's have the power to control/kill people, and may be considered 'evil' which is rare for protagonists, who are normally the 'heroes.' Both anime's have their different sides on their views of justice, and fight for what they believe in. The antagonists in both, are also working to find, and stop the protagonists from achieving their goals. Both involve psychological aspects; however, while Death Note is more a battle of the brains and wit, Code Geass involves a battle of the brains (mostly just on the protagonists part) as well as a lot of action and mecha scenes. Both are extremely intense anime, and the viewers are easily able to feel for each of the characters. Both series keep you on your edge of your seat the whole time, and are definitely worth watching. =)
Death Note and Other Anime can be seen here: http://www.myanimelinks.com/full-anime-list/
In both anime, the main male lead has an eye that gives them the ability to command people (though in Rental Magica, Itsuki just becomes more confident, thus being able to issue commands.) The eyes the characters have are also red and are both said to eventually cause the owners to become insane. Itsuki and Lelouch are also voiced by the same seiyuu, Jun Fukuyama.
However, Code Geass is more about freedom and battle while Rental Magica focuses on the cases Astral receives. I would recommend anyone who has seen either of these anime to watch the other.
If you like the voice acting in this anime you should try the other, many voice actors from Code Geass appear in Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai including the actors who played Diethard Reid (Sigmund in Machine-doll) and CC (Karyuusai Shouko in Machine Doll).
Code Geass main character ( Lelouch ) and Mobile Suit Gundam main antagonist ( Char Aznable ) are a lot alike, they both fight for getting revenge, they're intelligent and make good strategies, and they have little sisters to fight for.
Code geass is a completely different type of anime. CCS is full of feelings and inoscense, but Code Geass is full of intelligence and fight.
I am just recommending this anime because it was created by the same people, CLAMP. In my opinion, Code Geass is their master piece and CCS is their most lovable creation.
This will be a good recommendation only for those that loved (as I did) CLAMP's art.
Hope you like it!
Cowboy Bebop earns it's reputation for it's combination of fighting and original character matchings, as does Code Geass. If you liked Spike, Zero takes it to a much larger scale when Spike's close range combat is bought into the scale of international war.
Both have a female lead who gives the main (male) character a special ability to fight. Both have great fighting scenes. Both have mecha elements.
These anime have similarities because both fight to overthrow an organization or a government and gain beastly power during the process. Katekyo Hitman Reborn is more comedic and has more variety of powers while Code Geass is a very serious anime and mainly focuses on the main character's power of the Geass.
They both have a character wearing black armor that stares at the screen where you can see one eye, and both characters are named Zero.
Both have a ton of fan service, although you'd have to have some weird fetishes to be attracted to any of Apocalypses.
In both series, British Empire is restored to its full might and seeks for dominance over the whole world. Both series feature alternative history, supernatural abilities, school stories, drama, lots of action, loads of cliffhangers and the constant feeling of the impending "end of the world as we know it".
These two are my all time favorite anime (well, season 2 of Code Geass if I had to choose). They make me feel so much emotion, and I just love the ending in both. And if you liked Natsuno and Tooru from Shiki, then you'll probably like Lelouch and Suzaku from Code Geass, and vice versa. Both of these animes gave you a choice, to choose which side you root for. This choice will seem like: "Oh yeah, I totally think this side is correct", but after a while, you might not be so sure. And don't be affected by the 'vampire' genre in shiki, because that is not one of those (nowadays) everyday shojo vampire genres. And for people who've just had enough of cheesy romance, I recommend these two too.
