One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds.

So when an eerie man offers the boy a special ATM card and an exorbitant amount of cash, Kimimaro gives in to temptation – but there's a catch. In exchange for his good fortune, Kimimaro's very future is put at stake, held as collateral by the Bank of Midas and tied to the amount of yen in his bank account. In addition, he must participate in a special battle every week in the mysterious 'Financial District' – a battle where losing against one's opponent can mean bankruptcy, a fate that carries an unthinkable cost in the normal world...

both anime have the 'power given by a stranger' theme. Both try to change the future in a variety of ways meeting people who have a similar goal but different methods to achieve it.  Overall, both are good, even though C is alot shorter, it is just as memorable.

arachni42

C is to economics as Code Geass is to chess. They both have these themes that are applied to the plot, though in both cases it makes far more sense symbolically than literally. C is lacking in the "All according to plan..." gambits that Code Geass is chock full of, and the main characters' reactions to the power they're handed are quite the opposite. C is the more unique concept, but the characters and plot are not as fleshed out as Code Geass. Still, both series play with their respective themes and take them to over-the-top levels. They both have something new to bring to the table.

Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied

For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...

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.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

It is the year 2029, and as many rush to embrace the changes that cybernetic technology bring to mankind, the seedier side of humanity is even quicker to take advantage of it. This series follows Public Peace Section 9, a government organization that plays behind the scenes to stop the worst of these criminals. Join Major Motoko Kusanagi and her team as they take you through an incredibly vivid world filled with plots of such depth and intrigue as is seldom seen.

Both animes encompasses some elements of mystery that satisfies anybody whoose looking for some quality anime to watch. With a decent amount of action inside and loads of mind games, this 2 animes would go hand in hand , and if you have not watched either one, nows the chance to watch it!

TheVampireLastat

First off any one who loved eather series based off of the deep underlying social and political issues will love the other. bolth series deal with political,social,and worldly issues.GIT has more of a futuristic feel to it. Although code geass is bassed in the future it doesnt have the si-fi feel that ghost in the shell does.

Bolth shows have heroes fighting for whats right and a free world.

Gundam Wing

Gundam Wing

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.

Zech

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 !

Kaiba

Kaiba

Welcome to a world in which memories can be transferred from body to body; old painful memories can be removed and replaced with new ones, and the poor sell their bodies to the rich to survive. Waking up one day, Kaiba finds himself in a strange place with no memories of his past and a mysterious hole in his chest; the only clue as to his identity is a locket with a picture of a girl hanging from his neck. Armed with this token, Kaiba must now travel across the galaxy to discover who he is and what the girl in the locket means to him; however, his journey will bring him into contact with many people whose lives have been tragically affected by the manipulation of memories. All too soon it becomes clear that something is very wrong with this world…

Although at face value, Kaiba seems to be nothing like Code Geass, what with its older animation style and very unconventional art style, Kaiba is a story diving into many levels of mystery and drama.

The main story revolves around the character Kaiba, a  young man (not a little boy!) who has lost his memory, waking up in an unfamiliar place, not knowing just who is his friend or enemy.

It involves the stories of different characters as the series goes along, bringing a deeper understanding of eah to the Viewer, which adds boundless depth to the storyline ep after ep.

Though the largest challenges of this anme for most viewers seem to be the art and the unspoken "strangeness" of the story's setting, seeing Kaiba through till the end still proves very satisfying.

Both set in sci-fi world.

Both shows are trying to tell the watcher, that you can have everything and rule the world, but at the same moment you would have nothing.

Both main characters, Popo and Lelouch try to defeat current rulers of the world and take their place. In order to do that, they lose their friends and family.
