Synopsis

A year has passed since "The Black Rebellion" and the remaining Black Knights have vanished into the shadows, their leader and figurehead, Zero, executed by the Britannian Empire. Area 11 is once more squirming under the Emperor's oppressive heel as the Britannian armies concentrate their attacks on the European front. But for the Britannians living in Area 11, life is back to normal. On one such normal day, a Britannian student, skipping his classes in the Ashford Academy, sneaks out to gamble on his chess play. But unknown to this young man, several forces are eying him from the shadows, for soon, he will experience a shocking encounter with his own obscured past, and the masked rebel mastermind Zero will return.

As this is a review of a sequel, I believe that the reader is already familiar/has watched the first season of Code Geass.

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 is both more of the same and yet a departure for the series in several ways. On one hand, it’s often even more ridiculous and over the top than its predecessor, and on the other surprisingly dramatic, with an emotional resonance not found in the first season. This results in the show feeling more like a reboot/reimagining of the series rather than a simple continuation of the storyline. Now to be sure, many of the classic Geass read more

Code Geass from top to bottom passed all check marks that make up not just a great anime but a masterpiece.

The goal was simple. Avenge mother and create world peace for the sake of your sister, only it's never that simple. Along the quest for world peace there was a lot of manipulation, deception, twist, and turns that leave you in awe every step of the path.

We have our main protagonist Lelouch Vi Britannia the teenager with the power of geass who plans to overturn Britannia's rule over the Japanese even though Lelouch himself is Britannia. This is what makes the characters so complex, they read more

Put on your seatbelts and brace yourself, for you will be taken on a rabidly-paced and concluding journey, slaloming through plot twists and character development at a tempo that will leave you longing for a new episode at the end of each one. Save a lot of time, for this is obnoxiously addictive. This is... Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch... R2!

Did it jump the shark? Was it flawlessly executed? Could it have been improved on? Was it outright horrible? That I will not answer; such a question is for you to answer yourself. To me, it was great. It was awesome. While reluctant at first, read more

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Review:

Firstly I would like to say that this review is for the entire series as a whole, NOT just for season 2. Now then....
I am not a fan of mecha. There, I said it. This was the main reason why I ignored all of the suggestions and decided to put off this show for so long. However, this decision of mine to put off this show was just plain stupid and I now realize why everyone likes this show. Code Geass has become one of my favorite shows of all time and has joined Clannad and Steins;Gate on the read more

Recommendations

Both are about someone with a hidden power that is trying to change the world. Someone close to them is one of the main enemies. Something like that.
Guilty Crown is more like R2 than Code Geass 1st season. The main character is thrust into a politically unstable Japan where he himself vows to change the nation his own way by his own methods (which are needless to say at times cruel). He has a power only he can use and uses it to further his own ambitions. (Geass with Lelouch and Void extraction with Shu) He is also leader of an anti-government faction. He also has a quiet female that supports him on the side. (Pizza girl in Geass and Inori in Guilty Crown) I do not want to get into spoilers but there are so many other similarities that you should just watch both if you enjoyed one. Each has its own unique qualities but are just too similar. The only slight difference is that in Code Geass, it is Westerners vs Japanese, in Guilty Crown it is Evil Japanese government vs Japanese high school students.
they are both about changing the world and both use mechas as a tool to achieve this goal... although code geass is smarter and has a genius protagonist, gundam offers loads of action and amazing mecha fights
LOGH is the Mature and Sophisticated version of CG. It's the evolution from a kid still Potty Training, to being the Engineer that built the Zero-Gravity Space Toilet. It's the leap from being a Pee Wee League Basketball kid, to being the next Michael Jordan. It's the upgrade from Atari 2600 to the Playstation 4 or Xbox One. It's the difference in illumination between a Candle and the Sun. It's the transition from an Appetizer to the Main Course- and that is the main merit of watching CG, as to prepare you for the Real Deal.

When one has seen enough of the "Staples" and "Popular" Anime, and are looking for the Next Level, they turn to the True Elite Logh. Until that point they can not be considered a True Anime Fan.
While the series themselves are not that similar, the protagonists in both "deceived" the world. Not to mention they both have amazing evil laughs!
Both are mecha animes with very intense epic battles, the story plot between the two are both similar in a way to how they both want to make the world a better place and to become successfull in doing so. Theres quite a bit of mecha action and dramatic suspense with romance here and there, with some comedy to lighten up the moods. Very good animes overall.
