In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
Some years into the future, a strange, unexplainable natural disaster has broken off a piece of the Japanese mainland. Known as the Lost Ground, it is now inhabited by people with Alters -- machine-like extensions of their own will. In order to keep the peace on the Lost Ground, the HOLY organization uses its own Alter capabilists to police the region. In the midst of the chaos is a young man named Kazuma, whose life will soon change forever as he discovers his hidden abilities, and how to wield them.
In both series the main charictar fights agenst the government using special powers to protect someone they love (their sisters actually). Both series are great and fun to watch.
These two shows feature consistantly-escalating superpowers in conflict; Scryed with psychic materialization abilities, Code Geass with upgrading mecha. The main characters fight battles with long odds against overwhelmingly powerful established entities. Both Code Geass and Scryed feature over-the-top drama, lots of yelling, bitter rivalries, explosions, plot twist after plot twist, warped facial expressions, tragic character deaths and sacrifices, and bombastic musical scores that keep the blood pumping. If can find something absurd yet cool and entertaining at the same time, you'll be right at home with either of these anime.
As a bonus, Code Geass and Scryed share the same animation studio (Sunrise), director (Goro Taniguichi), and significant portions of their English dub casts.
the main characters in the shows were fighting for the same things. also about gaining controll over a certain area that's being controlled by idiots.
A man awakens in an unfamiliar room, with no recollection of who he is or where he came from. His wounds have been bandaged, and his face is covered with a mask that he cannot remove. With nowhere to go, he decides to stay with his rescuers and help them when needed, waiting for his memory to return. Though his courage, skill, and wisdom quickly gain him the villagers’ respect, the same traits soon land him in hot water with the local feudal lord. Not one to back away from injustice, the path he must follow will lead him to confront his enemies, and his hidden past.
Now here's an awkward recommendation. Although they clearly stem from entirely different genres, both Code Geass and Utawarerumono follow their main character as he rebels against the ruling regime and becomes an influential leader in his own right, with all the strings attached. If you enjoyed the army-building aspect of one, with the recruiting, politics, managing and so on, you may likely enjoy the other as well.
While these shows might not have many superficial similarities, warfare soon becomes a central theme in both of them. Utawarerumono focuses more on the cause and effects of it, while Code Geass focuses more on the battles themselves. Another similarity is that they both put a lot of focus on the characters involved in these wars, often more so than on the war itself.
At first it may seem that those two are completely different anime, yet if you check it twice you'll find that both of them have those large scale battles and plenty of strategy/tactical stuff. Both shows have a masked man as a main character. Whats more, both of them lead a rebellion and their position as the leaders is brought upon them rather suddenly. On the other hand Hakuoru (main hero of Utawarerumono) and Lelouch (protagonist of Code Geass) are driven by different motives. In both anime it is quite interesting to watch where their motives lead them. So if you like umm... strategical anime with plenty of action and don't mind some mecha (in Code Geass case), then those are two anime for you.
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?
Even if you forget the fact that these are both works of CLAMP the similarities are still striking. If you liked the character designs and the anti-hero main characters in Code Geass, you're probably going to like X TV too.
Both X TV and Code Geass have that dark, tragic feel to them and in my opinion the protagonists, Kamui and Lelouch, are quite similar. Both have people that they want to protect (Kotori and Fuuma for Kamui, Nunnally and Suzaku for Lelouch), and both series pit best friends against each other in battle. Also, both series have character designs by CLAMP, and you can especially see the similarities between Kamui and Lelouch; yet also, Nunnally and Kotori bear similarities in personality and looks. Both series are must views!
Both X TV and Code Geass are about a young male lead who is gifted with supernatural powers and holds the fate of civilization in his hands. Also both Lelouch and Kamui suffer hardships and heartaches, as well as difficult decisions. These anime have a very similar feel and while the plot lines vary greatly the characters of Lelouch and Kamui are very similar; both show a cold exterior whilst actually being quite caring inside. Both anime aren't afraid of a high death count either.
Badass leader in an "evil" organisation. Both also have supernatural powers, which allows them to do things as they like
Similar protagonist, art style,and storyline. Both feature a charismatic anti-hero working at the head of an terrorist organization,both revolving around superpowers of some sort. In fact,it's pretty impossible for the two to not be compared as they simply have so much in common.
Code Geass+ Xmen =Unlimited Hyoubu Kyousuke.
If you like one,you'll like the other,I guarantee it.
Both of the main characters, Lelouch and Kyousuke are fighting for something they believe in and both of their fathers have an influence on their actions. Lelouch seems to have a more peacful side to him though, whereas Kyousuke is just an all around badass and set on his revenge, something both of the characters have in mind.
Touru Souma was a hacker in Steppen Wolf, a rogue group of four who caused mischief in the wired world. But during their final hacking session, they attacked the government agency known as FLAK and Touru’s friend Yuuya died in the process. Haunted by his memories, Touru vows to find the ones responsible for murdering Yuuya, even if it means he must join the enemy to do so. Further complicating the matter is the emergence of the terrorist organization Fei Dao; but the largest challenge Touru must now face is his forgotten memories – especially one involving a girl who continuously reappears in reality...
Though the settings and premises are quite different, Code Geass and Baldr Force can be linked. The characters of Toru and Lelouch are surprisingly similar, with both manipulating others in order to exact revenge. The two series carry the same general feel and style, so if you enjoyed one you likely will enjoy the other.
In either of these anime if you enjoyed the element of military battling terrorists in mecha then check the other out! Both have fairly intricate sci-fi orientated plots propelled by revenge that deliver many twists. BALDR is a lot darker though, Geass suffers from flamboyant theatrics.
