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

This series follows Suzaku's side of the story, while Lelouch of the Rebellion follows Lelouch's.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked this manga series up. I intended to finish up the entire series since it was only 2 volumes long, but after the 1st volume, I found it so awful that I see no way of the second volume being able to redeem this retelling of one of my favorite series.

First of all, if this is a retelling of Code Geass as seen through Suzaku’s eyes, then it’s appalling at how many inaccuracies there are. There are no Knightmare Frames. None. Zilch. Zero. Suzaku’s prototype Lancelot suit is just a suit read more

Just to get this out of the way, this is not a retelling of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. This is a separate timeline of events, with Suzaku as the main character. As with the original series, the art work was good. Nothing in particular really stood out, but it was solid work. This story had so much potential, and it's frustrating that the author chose to utilize a deus ex machina at the end, where they could've really put an interesting end on the series. The story up to the end is okay, not as good as the original, but still acceptable. Though, read more
