Suzaku Kururugi, a Britannian soldier, is shot for disobeying an order to execute his friend and accused terrorist, Lelouch Lamperouge. Fortunately, he survives the attempted execution, finding himself in the Empire's research division when he comes to. It turns out that Suzaku has been chosen as the primary test candidate for the Lancelot, a powerful new combat mech that exponentially increases its user's physical prowess.

Presented with a chance to change the world for the better, he agrees to become the first pilot of the Lancelot. Code Geass: Hankou no Suzaku follows one young man's desperate struggle to protect those dearest to him and defeat Britannia's greatest threat to peace: the cunning, self-proclaimed vigilante Zero.

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
