Area 11 is still under Britannian rule and the Elevens remain brutally oppressed; what’s more, their saviour, Zero, is nowhere to be found and all of Britannia believes the rebellion is finally over. Elsewhere, having lost the battle, Lelouch sets his sights upon winning the war – but the task is no easier since the Britannian forces have learned some valuable lessons all of their own. Not only have they discovered his identity and captured many of his Black Knights, but they now manipulate the memories of all of his friends. Worst of all, they have taken the most precious thing in his life – his dear sister, Nunnally. With his hatred for the Britannians stronger than ever before, Lelouch must now recuperate his forces and bring their rule of terror to an end.

Death Note

Death Note

Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...

Like lelouch, Yanagami Light is looking to change the world in a non conventional way.. He gets the death note that a shinnigami drop, if you whrite a name in the book and think on the face of the person, he will die un less than a minute... And so it start his quest to erase the criminals from the face of the earth...


Lelouch Lamperouge and Yagami Light share some characteristics. They both want too change the world at all cost. Not a single death is too much for them. Although there are no Mecha's in Death Note, and no Shinigami's in Code Geass, I am sure that if you liked the one, you will like the other, so jump into the lives of these Anti-Heroes, and see what they will do for their goals!


Thrills, spills, cliff-hangers, twists, and a genius protagonist who wants to take over the world. If you want more of that stuff found in Code Geass, then Death Note should be your next destination.


Both series revolve around the anti-hero trying to take over the world. Death Note is a darker themed version of the genre, and Code Geass has mech elements, but both series provide an interesting outlook on tyranny.


the main charters in both death note and code gease both have the same dark view of humanity and desire to take over the world


Both series have a intelligent calculating anti-hero as the protagonist, who tries to "save the world" while becoming completely crazy!


The strategical play in these animes are very similiar, I think Code Geass has a better ending though.


both have geniues characters, Raito, L, Lelouch or his brother... and in both you can't predict what will happen next


same general idea of a genius trying to change the world and make it better, a similar story with the same goals, but different roads to reach them, if you will.


Both series are about an anti hero that gains a power that he uses for a good purpose that does not end well.

Both series seems to mysteriously make you root for the bad guy though...interesting.


Though there isn't as much action in Death Note as there is in Code Geass, honestly, I don't believe that is the point of either anime. They're more psycological. If you liked the psycological factor of one, its the same issue in the other one. Though both are pleasantly different, they have the same aura, and I don't know anyone who like one but not the other.


If you were pleased by Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion then you will admire Death Note. The plot is similar to Code Geass, but it has a more unsuspected ending. In both of the animes, the main characters let out the evil that was hidden in them. They get overpowered by the power to rule. It would be rude of me to spoil the anime. Try Death Note, you won't regret it.


Both of these anime series share something in common, and that is a protagonist with a desire to change the world. Such a powerful desire though can lead to many dangers and a dysfunctional personality, as you will find from observing Lelouch from Code Geass and Light from Death Note.

Interestingly, Lelouche and Light are very similar in how they share a very deceptive personality, and how throughout the two series it's often a battle of logic between the protagonist and his nemesis.

These two series have a lot in common, and I can guarantee that if you liked one you will like the other.


Death Note and Code Geass both follow a similar principle: High school student gets a strange power, in one case the Death Note and the other Geass, and try to change the world with it. Both weilders of the power have amazing thinking capabilities and are the most brilliant strategists of their world, knowing both themselves and everyone around them far too well because of their personal behavior.


Both anime focus on deathmatch between two masterminds. In both cases you will probably side with the evil one, even though it depends on point of view. Both baddies are just brilliant and you always wonder how the heck are they gonna solve this problem. Also both series focus on moral dilemma. Is it bad to kill criminal? Is it right to set free your country at all costs? How far are you able to go to fullfill your mission? Are you able and willing to sacrifice your own life for your dream? These are questions you will ask yourself after you saw both of these series.

And also... final scenes of both these anime are just going to catch you unprepared... you will not be able to tell whether the ending is good or not. 

If you want to watch and think a little and not just watch, then watch these anime.


Code Geass and Death Note both have a smart, resolute main character with strong ideals. What if someone like that were to be given the power to achieve those goals? Code Geass and Death Note answer that question. These shows are more about strategic battles of wits then anything else. If you liked Code Geass R2, and haven't yet seen Death Note yet, give it a shot, you won't regret it.


Both animes are about people who possess special power, and who want to use that power to achieve their goals, which is making the world a better place to live in.


Both of these series have a very strong physiological approach to them with very intricate plots and well thought out plans. Also, in both of them, the main character is given a new power and a chance to change the world they live in.


you would definitely like this one as well as it involves a main character who thinks steps ahead like lelouch and it is really good


Well, the main reason would be that both Light Yagami (Death Note) and Lelouch (Code Geass) wants to change the would to something better. Both of them obtains some kind of superpower that allows them to make a difference. So i would really recommend watching both. If you've seen one, then watch the other one.


Both series feature an Anti-Hero protagonist, with an almost unobtainable goal.  Until each acquire an incredibly powerful tool which allows them a chance to grasp their goal.  Zero/Lelouch gains the Geass, Kira/Light gains the Death Note.  If you like one, you will undoubtedly love the other.


Both shows have their mental twists that make the viewer say, "I can't believe what he's become."


both Code Geass R2 and Death Note feature similar male lead characters, both Lelouch and Light are willing to change the world into a better place where everyone can live peacefuly and they are willing to do it by using any means necesary, even if that means sacrificing the persons they love or even themselves. If you liked one i am sure you will enjoy the other one as well.


Both shows are about teenager who tries to be god of a new world. Both of them are students with high intelligent, so it's not hard for them to manipulate with other people. Kira and Lelouch are trying to create a world without badness, because they have their own purpose for doing that. Kira and Lelouch chose very cruel way of doing that.  Even though Code geass has more action, it's really similar to Death note.


If you liked Death Note or Code Geass, you'd like other because Death Note = Code Geass. It's not copy of each other but it's very very simmilar. They has many things in common. The stories and characters of both animes are very simmilar. The difference is that Code Geass has more action.

As Yagami Light wants to destroy all the evil in the world, Lelouch wants the same. They both wants to make a new world and be the God of that world.

There's more things in common between these animes, but I won't write them because I don't want to spoil you.


Both the first and second season of Code Geass display an anti-hero whose main objective is good. They both are (relatively) normal people who attain great power and use it in some harsh ways for the end result of good. Also, the main theme of both is really a battle of wits, so if you liked one, you'll like the other.


Both shows main protaganist's will make just about any sacrafice to create there ideal world.Both Light & Lelouch are highly intelagent and always think a few moves ahead. also if you did not lile the ending of death note you will love code geass


Both Code Geass and Death Note are very similar, in the fact that they seem (at least to me) like psychological thrillers. You are always on the edge of your seat wanted to watch the next episode. Both Main characters are extremely intelligent and use their powers to "cleanse the world of criminals"

If you watch one and like it, i would definately recommend watching this. This sequel is very well put together.


They both have a highly intellegent main character given a special gift/power that is used to change the world. Both main characters have a huge ambition.


Both series involve carfully planned and orchestrated moves that, when finally revealed, make both series fantastic shows to watch.


These are both really great anime series! They have a very similar feel in terms of intelligence and structure, although I prefer Code Geass over Death note, they certainly come close to each other in my books.


even though the world in wich this animes develop are totally different, the main characters of both got the same magnetism becouse of their strategic and calculating way of being...if u like one or the other u should watch, unless u are against mechas or watching code geass just becouse of the mechas..


both are trying to create a better world. but its just a little diffrent with powers. they are both obsessed with trying to change the world in diffrent ways.       


Death Note and Code Geass are quite similar. Guy acquires power and uses it to reach his goal. The ending is a lot different though. If you liked one you are sure to like the other. They both bring suspended leaving you to want to watch the next episode to see what happens to the main character.


  • Hero vs world
  • Evil geniuses
  • Mystic powers
  • Psyhologic analysys opponents
  • Strategic planning
  • World domination conquest


Code geass and Death Note have many common features in them. Both series have Main charcaters who want to change the world but are powerless, but with help of some supernatural entities Ryuk in death note and C.C. in codegeass, they get power to change the world. Both main characters are violent with their methods with little regards about human life of badguys.

But road to change the world isnt that easy, they face countless foes, have some backstabbig and both have some tragedys.

If u liked one series ull like other one aswell


Code Geass and Death Note have many similarities: obviously the fact that Lelouch (CG) and Light (DN) are very alike, and that both series follow the story of a teenager attempting to change the world using a form of supernatural power (Lelouch has the Geass, Light has the Death Note)


Code Geass is great, though it does have a simular feel as Death Note I would deffinatly recommend Code Geass over Death Note.... All Hail Lelouch!


The are both mental animes. Although Code Geass has a lot more action they both are mostly about the mental game.


They really are both mental games and brilliant shows! Although I did prefer Lelouch over Light because of reasons without spoiling, I didn't mind Light. Both are definitly worth a watch!

Eden of the East

Eden of the East

In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?

both series have a to do with memory loss and both main charecters obtain a certin kind of power that they try to use to change the world for the better. Both also have simmiler animation syles


Both Code Geass R2 and Eden of the East focus on character that intends to change the world by becoming a scapegoat for social problems. In both shows the main character creates a villainous persona that the masses loathe and consequently unite against.


both Eden of the East and Code Geass R2 feature two main characters that lost their memories. Both of them possess a special power that they try to use to change the world into a better place even if that means to sacrifice themselves for the sake of their goals becoming truth. If you liked one of these shows, you will enjoy the other one as well.


Both of them possess a special power that they try to use to change the world into a better place even if that means to sacrifice themselves for the sake of their goals becoming truth. There are differences between them. Like how they change the world and the reason why they want to change it. But if you in joyed one you will love the other.


both involve the main character planing to become a scapegoat for the sake of the people. both characters have a unique gift with strict limits that gives them an edge over everyone else.

code geass is even brighter than eden is though.


In order to change the world for the better...you must stand as it's monarch. Both are tons of fun!

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Both mechas for people who hate mechas, R2 and Evangelion share similar qualities in their presentation of psychological and philosophical drama riddled with familial and political intrigue.  If you liked the (often-difficult) character development, complex secrets, philosophical questions and fast pace of R2, you'll probably like Evangelion as well.  


Both shows have larger than life dramas with "mechas"; howver, they both also concentrate heavily on the personal relations between characters, allowing for viewing experiences that are never stale. The major theme within each show also revolves heavily around collective conscience versus individuality.


Both stories are great and epic, hard to see two anime of this kind!

Mecha are very well involved in both stories, but still they aren't the only base the story is made on.

What about characters? Very different in one anime from the other but for sure the same way deep as only a few of other anime series have.




Kamui has returned to Tokyo with a traumatizing past, but he is not the only one. Many people are returning to Tokyo for the same reason: they play a part in the End of the World. The Dragons of Earth and the Dragons of Heaven now must fight for the destruction or safety of the world. But is this troubled Kamui really the key to saving the world?

Maybe it's CLAMP's story telling way that makes me think this recommendation is a good idea.

In both, Code Geass (especially the R2 part) and X-TV:

* The main cast chooses their role in war to accomplish what they believe in, and both sides are simultaneously "right" and "wrong".

* The main character risks everything he has to make sure the people he loves will have a future (Kamui, for Fuma and Kotori; Lelouch for his sister Nunally).

* The future, human emotions/actions and wishes play a very important part in the story.

* A tragedy waits to happen (and does happen).

If you liked any of those aspects in one of the series, you'll like it just as much in the other. At least I got the same "feeling" from both.


X TV and Code Geass feature the same character design (designed by CLAMP). In both shows the main leads are fighting in a war to protect the people that they love and to accomplish their own goals. Both of them are pretty tragic shows where deaths of beloved persons are like the meal of the day. If you liked one, for sure you will enjoy the other one as well.


Each show deals with friends turning enemies, and deals strongly with death. The fate of the world is determined by the willingness of sacrifice.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Second Season

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Second Season

Four years after Celestial Being's disastrous showdown with the Earth military, most of humanity is united under a single government: the Earth Sphere Federation. A-LAWS, an autonomous task force established in the name of preserving peace and security, is in reality responsible for the brutal and oppressive enforcement of the Federation government's will. The remnants of Celestial Being notice that the world is no better off in the wake of their actions four years ago, and in fact is largely worse. Feeling the need to take responsibility for their past actions and set things right, Setsuna and the rest of Celestial Being begin re-organizing, preparing to intervene in world affairs once again.

These shows have several similar aspects like rebel forces fighting for freedom against large oppressing forces (Brittannia/A-LAWS), over-the-top battle scenes with a few far superior mechas being able to fight againsta large number of enemies on it's own and characters with beyond human capabilities.


Gundam 00 and Code Geass R2 have much in common. The storyline of both series is similar yet spectacular in their own ways. Both involve a group of people trying to change the world and rid it from oppression yet they both do so in their own unique ways. The only difference between them would be that Gundam 00 expands to space while Code Geass remains on earth.
