Main things that make these two animes similar are the protagonists being genius like anti-heros, with a major theme being terrorism. Also, both animes have another strong character with differing values with the main character, hence fighting against the them. I think there are a lot of hidden metaphors in both animes, and they both explore deeper notions and emotions as the story progresses. There is a lot of action, strategic planning, girl characters that don't do much, long legged skinny guys as the mains...but they're still pretty cool... Zankyou no Terror is not finished at the time of making this recommendation, but I am   read more

The main characters are in high school and both series attempt to explore "terrorism" as a means to an end.

Both have an intelligent main that is a terrorist. Both go to high school. Both have a mysterious past. Both have large physiological warfare.

Similar vibe and feel. Both deeply controversial and psychological shows. Perfect for those who love battles using strategies and thinking as opposed to physical strength, etc.

Though the goals of the MCs of both series are different they try to achieve these through a common means: terrorism. Both shows present us with cunning protagonists who blow up things for a cause. These anime have properly executed plots and characters with ideals that often clash throughout the series. Code Geass and its sequel balances serious scenes with light-hearted moments but Zankyou is mostly dark and serious.

Both have something like Terrorist (in case of Code Geass rebellious ) group , that attack the city (the whole country in Code Geass) , they both have masterminds, the MC in both have their names unknown. Zankyou no Terror is more of a psychological battle (with some bombing) , while Code Geass is more strategic fights and action orientated.

They are similar in term of terrorism. However, Geass is less similar in term of contemporary terrorist and sabotage techniques used, as well as the plot. But these are all involving some kind of conspiracy behind, and how their actions made them being labelled as "terrorists" and "anti-heroes"

In this day and age how can you spend your time better than watching violant acts of blatent terrorism? Zankyou No terror is about two kids playing with fire... And a nuclear explosion... You know, the normal things teenage boys do. It is a good story, as it involves these two kids trying to send a message to the public, all the while they evade being caught by Americans... Oh, and there are sme Japanese police, I guess. Code Geass is about people fighting for independance from The Empire of Brittania, which controls the North and South American continents (with a bit of other land). These people   read more

Terrorism. Code Geass and Terror in Resonance both have the same theme of terrorists, namely, that who are young students. Code Geass is Lelouch and his plan to dethrone Britannia of its tyranny, as Zero and the Black Knights. ZnT is slightly more mysterious, with Sphinx having vague goals in mind when it comes to their bombings. Both are good anime with Code Geass containing full-out action, with mecha and military. ZnT containing mystery with mind games at play.

A major draw of Code Geass is the physiological aspect of it. Whether it be the big-brain plays made be Lelouch, the back-and-forth between characters, or letting the viewer draw the line on what is ethical and what is just plain wrong, Code Geass brought a lot to the table in this regard. Terror in Resonance brings all of this with an extra helping of edginess. Whether it be [Redacted] individuals not saving people in order to catch pacifist terrorists, giving a bomb to a classmate, or just casually encouraging illegal actions this show really delivers on these notes. There is nowhere near as many characters   read more
