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.
Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race - will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?
If you liked the fast-paced plot, enormous cast and genre/mood-meshing of R2, you'll almost certainly like TTGL. TTGL is another story of casting off the chains of oppression and changing the world... by means of mecha fights and bravado, but is more upbeat and tongue-in-cheek than R2. Despite its more lightweight (in a good way) approach, the non-stop fighting, speech-giving, big revelations, politics, and power-plays in TTGL make it a good bet for fans of R2.
The second part of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and the second season of Code Geass share the political instability that is usually seen in the aftermath of war and the creation of a new government. Rossiu's political trifles are comparable to Lelouch's hardships in maintaining the Empire of Brittania and that is where we can see the similarity in both titles. Other than politics, we also have a female supportive role that is strongly present in both titles in the form of Yoko Littner, Nia Teppelin, and Lelouch's ever faithful C.C.
Teito Klein is a former slave who attends the Barsburg Empire's military academy. Having no memory of his past and the power to wield a rare ability called Zaiphon, Teito is constantly under the scrutiny of his peers - except for his best friend Mikage, the only person he connects with. After seeing and remembering the man who killed his father, Teito tries to kill him and finds himself on the run from Barsburg's military might. Now, with the evil beings known as Kor after his soul, the Barsburg Empire after his blood and only the legendary Seven Ghosts to protect him, Teito must unlock the memories of his past before he ends up as a sacrifice for Verloren, the sealed God of Death.
If you liked 07-Ghost, you'll probably like Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2. For the same reasons as cited in the first series; both are very military-focused, and the storylines are both steeped in secrets, double-crossing and dodgy authority figures.
Also, the central characters are both young men, schooled in the confines of, or in close proximity to, a military setting. Both are disillusioned with their 'leaders', and are spurred forward to break ranks and dismantle the imbalance/corruption that their authority figure represents... at great risk to their lives.
Both have pasts which gradually reveal a great deal of the inner-workings of their journey, including childhood trauma and subsequent secrets.
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
i recently finished Darker than black and overall i quite enjoyed it. At the start it was very slow and i almost dropped it but it built up to a climatic ending and was very satisfying. Then there's Code Geass which had me hooked from the get go. I loved everything about it including the many genres which worked like a charm, The characters and all the twists and cliffhangers. i could never wait for the next episode to unfold.
Both of these series are similar as both the main characters have secret identities and they both use similar powers(these being contractors and Geass). All in all i liked Code Geass alot better but im sure u'll like 1 if u like the other!

Find out information about the Demonbane by whatever means necessary! Joined by Kuro Daijuji, private investigator, Lily's skills are put to the test when mad scientists, otherworldly women, and even Demonbane itself gets in the way!
If you like animes with dark type of theme, where the main character, a guy, gets his entire life changed and gets a new resolve in life right after he meets that one girl. Code Geass and Demonbane, both have characters that have their entire lives changed and are willing to risk it all, because they have been granted power by the girls they met.
The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo - human transmutation. Four years ago two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al's body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al's soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist - the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.
