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.
In the 24th century, the planet's fossil fuels have been completely consumed, forcing humanity to use solar power as the primary source of energy. A huge solar energy system orbiting the planet was eventually built, anchored to the Earth and providing it with power through three orbital space elevators. As a result of the expense of such a large-scale project, most the world consolidated into three factions: the Union, the Human Reform League, and the AEU. Despite their common reliance on the fragile orbital elevators for energy, however, humanity still continues to constantly fight wars and build up arms. A paramilitary organization called Celestial Being, equipped with incredibly powerful mobile suits called Gundams, fight in order to force humanity to unite and eradicate armed conflict.
The conflict between Akatsuki and the shinobi nations is similar to Celestial Being and the 3 power blocs. There are also moments that are funny, light hearted, and dark but at the same time there are deaths involved as well that will bring impact on the characters and the plot.
The side story takes place in 2017 a.t.b., around the time Lelouch took on the alter-ego “Zero” and built up his “Black Knights” rebellion army. The setting is in Europe, where the Euro Universe (E.U.) allied nations are being invaded by the overwhelming forces of the Holy Britannian Empire. On the verge of defeat, the E.U. army forms a special division known as “W-O″, of which a young pilot named Akito Hyuuga is a member. Layla Malkal , a former Britannian Aristocrat comes to the E.U.'s aid, commanding the “Wyvern” Knightmare corps comprised of Japanese teenagers. They recklessly plunge into a battlefield, where the survival rate is extremely low, at about 5% only. They fight for their freedom, and for a "home" to which they can return.
Dante works as a demon hunter for the office of Devil May Cry, and as he is always in debt he doesn't have the luxury to turn down jobs as long as they pay well. His latest assignment is to be a bodyguard for the young Patty Lowe while she receives her inheritance. During the mission he was able to defeat the demons that got in his way and deliver Patty safely, but upon completion of the mission Dante discovers that Patty will be staying with him – indefinitely! Now, Dante must not only hunt demons and coexist peacefully with other hunters, but also handle the responsibility of taking care of a little girl!
Both shows are mission based involving beings with supernatural powers. Both characters Naruto and Dante do enjoy food (Ramen and Strawberry Sundae) and have complex relationship with other characters but other than that they both have demonic powers. On the other hand, Sasuke who is silent and would later turn evil has the same tone that Dante has due to their presence. Plus as for demon hunting, Dante and Akatsuki hunt demons but with opposing views (Dante-for good and Akatsuki-for evil and anti villain purposes) and their character designs are similar as well. Trish also voices Konan whereas Dante voices 4th Hokage. The relationship between Zabuza and Haku are similar to Dante and Patty. Both are action packed and have moments that are funny and dramatic. Devil May Cry however is a side story pertaining to the main story whereas Naruto picks where it left off but there are side stories involved as well. Some of the powers in Naruto are similar to Devil May Cry but in the main stories as well (Video Games notable in 3 and 4) For the tone of the story, Devil May Cry tends to be more serious whereas Naruto blends seriousness, comedy, and drama all into one.
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?
the stories in both shows are much different in themes but are similar in somewhat way. Naruto is about a boy who is a child of prophecy destined to bring revolution in the ninja world whereas villains and his friend play the role to thwart and would involve more characters it and Code Geass is about a boy who would launch a rebellion and change the world with his power which would involve obstacles in his path including his best friend and his sworn enemy, his father. Both shows have characters who conceal their identities (Lelouch-Zero and Pain and Tobi) who will plot to bring peace but Pain and Tobi have more in common with Schneizel and Charles). Naruto's friendship with Sasuke is similar to Lelouch and Suzaku since they later end up becoming enemies due to being polar opposites. If you can look closely there are similarities in each characters:
Naruto and Sasuke-Lelouch and Suzaku
Karin and Kyuubi-C.C.
Shikamaru-with Lelouch's IQ
Itachi-with Lelouch's sibling love
Danzo-Lelouch's ends justify the means
Akatsuki-Black Knights in a twisted view
Plot are different but both have dark tone, drama, comedy, twists, and epic storyline with awesome character developments. The only difference is that Naruto deals with magic, supernatural powers, weapons, and warriors whereas Code Geass deals with Mecha most of the time and technology. They both have methological situation but Code Geass brings it to a bigger scale.
