Kojima is a baseball legend. As the superstar cleanup hitter for the Lycaons, he won himself many awards including rookie of the year seven times; but there's one title he never acquired: champion. In an attempt to find that special something Kojima feels he's missing inside, he opens a training camp in Okinawa. There, through a series of events, Kojima is introduced to a high stakes game dominated by the talented Toua Tokuchi, and subsequently loses a fortune. However, Kojima finally defeats Toua and due to their agreement, he enlists him to join the now poorly-ranked Lycaons - but Toua demands a high price: instead of a salary, he will receive five million yen for each out, and lose fifty million yen for each point lost. With a bad attitude and prodigal skills, Toua will help transform the Lycaons into winners once more.
Both are about a great strategists who are able to foresee the actions of their rivals. Both make you want to watch the second episode immediately.
If you loved the strategizing and tactical duels of Code Geass, and want more such aggrandized chess play, then I highly recommend One Outs. Sure, it's not an epic political thriller, but One Outs' protagonist achieves in the baseball pitch what Lelouch achieves on the world stage. Gripping stuff!
The year is After Colony 195, and mankind is in the midst of a seemingly endless ongoing war between the Space Colonies and the ones who created them: the people of Earth. To give the Colonies the advantage, five mobile suits called Gundams were created. Equipped with enhanced technology and extremely talented young pilots, these are the ultimate machines of war. While Relena Peacecraft pleads for peace, Heero Yui leads the Gundams into the battle with Earth to attain it. As their personalities and visions clash, their goal is the same: freedom for all and peace at last.
Both of these series revolve around mechas, "saviors" chosen to save oppressed peoples, and a strong central character with a sense of mystery about him.
Both have charismatics characters ! A complexe story mixing personnal affair and politics. Great scenes of action. They both are not manichean, you can love characters in each faction ! And of course there are mechas !
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.

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.
