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.

Code Geass: Hankou no Suzaku has been published in English as Code Geass: Suzaku of the Counterattack by Bandai Entertainment from January 6, 2009 to May 5, 2009.

This premise and plot of this manga is almost identical to Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch, but the story primarily told from the perspective of the character Suzaku Kururugi.

Mixed Feelings
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, ...

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 ...

Preliminary (2/8 eps)
I was curious about a manga stating it would show Suzaku's point of view, but it just doesn't.
Furthermore, the overall story is absolutely ruined: the whole mecha element is out of the picture, all brilliant strategies are replaced by stupid actions that would never work and, the worst thing, it tones down the stakes of the war until it looks like nothing more than a stupid bunch of edgy kids playing, and definitely not a war with the fate of humanity at stake. Everything that makes Code Geass great (which is to say the complex psychology of the characters, the brilliant tactics, the crazy ...
