Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...

Trust me. If you enjoyed Code Geass's comedic relief with the Student Council then you will thoroughly enjoy Ouran High School Host Club. It is the kind of anime you want to watch after watching such a serious series as Code Geass.

The absolute ridiculousness of both leaders of the Student Council (Milly) and the Host Club (Tamaki) is what makes the two equally enjoyable. Each group follows the leader no matter how estranged the idea making for some very interesting situations.

The love aspects of each show are also very fun to watch. They each keep you guessing to the end only adding on the various situations that occur.

Ouran can be a little tough to get through in the first episode, but you must let it finish before judging it. If you can get over the "Lover Twins" act. Let me say that again, "ACT," then you can move past the minor oversight and enjoy a nice lighthearted comedy.

If you were watching Code Geass, and the parts of the show with the Student Council made you smile without necessarily realizing it, that's what the entire series of Ouran High School Host Club makes you do. The interactions are similar, and it is just a feel-good show.

both anime showed the main character as an intelligent and rude/strong person who is able to think and act fast in a difficult scene or situation if you like one you will love the other one...!

Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied

Who is right, and who is wrong? If a victim fights back more fiercely than the abusers did, when does it stop being justified?

Both Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Elfen Lied blur the lines of morality and delve into the darker side of humanity. At one moment, it's clear who the viewer should sympathize with; a second later, things start to change. If you enjoy the psychological games that one show plays with you, then prepare for round two with the other.

Elfen Lied and Code Geass have a dark inner past blurred into the storyline.  The series really show the dark side humanity forms and moral issues in every day society.

Code Geass and Armed Librarians are action series with large (ly undeveloped) casts, the main character of each being of questionable moral standing. Each has a bunch of battles and stuff going on and PLOT TWIST!s and are kind of all over the place story and pacing-wise. If you can look past the messy storytelling, though, I guess they're fairly entertaining.

Iro Iro says...

The Book of Bantorra and Code Geass both have excellent thrilling stories with betrayals, plot twists, and well developed characters. Book of Bantorra has better animations and story execution than Code Geass. But Code geass has a better background story and longevity - one of things you want in excellent animes, as you just can't get enough!

Star Driver and Code Geass showcase the mecha genre at it's most... er... flamboyant.

Both feature a large cast of super-skinny teenagers that go to a giant boarding school, some of which pilot mecha, and some of which are involved in elaborate secret organizations. Very rarely will you encounter other series with so many genres mixed together.

Star Driver is a mutch more relaxed and less detailed anime than CG. But I do think that it is a great anime with a littel  humor in it. It can seem a bit ridiculous at first but it's actually a really cool and exciting and it will get you hooked pretty fast :D. CG have the whole world as a battle field while Star Driver only has a limited space dimension to fight in.
