I don't think I've ever been as compelled or moved by the cast, plot, or art of anime (though I'm no authority) as I have been by Code Geass.

+ Amazing art and animation, for the most part. Loved the character designs, the mechs, the world. The colors!

+ Music. It's one thing to get amazing music for a show, it's another to synthesize it perfectly with a narrative.

+ Writing and characterization. For me, it was all in the eyes. The best moments of the show are those glances - from Lelouch, Suzaku, CC, everyone - that pack so much life and emotion in them. And aside from a few instances - "SUZAKU!" and too much "LELOUCH!" - the writing manages to be dramatic without being too soap-operash. Okay, perhaps Euphienator was retarded, but it still got to me.

+ Cast. What a cast! Even the school-friends, which I found more than a little irritating at the beginning, grew on me. Kallen, Orange, Ougie - Lloyd - oh man LLOYD - the whole supporting crew, great designs and great characters.

+ Episode 11. Just totally sublime.

+ Episode 23. It was like a high, just colors, music and emotions flowing, no exposition, just feeling.

+ Something. I guess I'm one of those people for whom the show just clicked. I love how it put relationships at the heart of everything, I loved the unswerving romanticism.

An impressively non-/a/-like review.

5/10

I THINK I'VE SEEN THIS BEFORE!

Hahahahaaaa... You fool! You foolish, fool! Now you'll be chasing the dragon looking for a series as good as Code Geass forever. Your best bet is to just stop watching now.

IT OWNS THE SKIESA

yes code geass was great
>>
GL is like an abstract poem - completely meaningless until you interpret it the way the author tells you to.

Code Geass is like a classic novel - Great without interpretation.

Code Geass - it's Gurren-Lagann with intelligence!
>>
NO, MAI LOAD

Ditto. After watching Anime all my life, Code Geass pretty much killed the genre for me. Decimated it. After the emotional investment it tends to wring out of you, everything else is just sort of pedestrian. Someone will now go "lulz u dun no animu" now.

I rewatched the series this week and I had similar experiences. It was such an up and down emotional ride that made me want to watch the next episode with burning passion. It doesn't require you to sit there and try to interpret themes, it throws raw emotion right at your feet.

Its cool, you're just a real anime fan. I felt the same way after watching Noein (the greatest thing ever).

Good for you
