Well it is a new series, so you might not have heard of it before. And yes, I would say it is really good. It has interesting if not completely orginal characters functioning in a well-organized world. There is a legitimate story. Ultimately, liking an anime is a personal choice; however, as far as looking at all of the general aspects like sound, style, and characterization... it has all the bases covered.

Finished watching episode 12. This stuff is hotting up. It's introduced a lot more violence-action to complement the politics, which is always nice. And finally a female mecha pilot who totally kicks arse (and doesn't irritate the hell out of me) in Kallen. That battle in episode 11 was bloody awesome! Lelouch is also deepening fast as a character. He's highly intriguing to watch. Like a slightly more intricate and sympathetic version of Light (for anyone watching Death Note). I totally love his Zero costume.

Episode 18 - sheer brilliant tense, action-filled entertainment. This anime goes from strength to strength. It's really found its stride right now. Cannot WAIT for the next episode.

PS. I think Suzaku Kururugi is a twit.

just so people know the reason why the characters are drawn the way they are is because the CLAMP mangaka are doing the character designs :P. come on people it's so easy to recognize CLAMP drawings when you see them ^^_.

anyways, i'm loving the show so far. i also can't wait to find out why C.C.'s name is so important. did anyone catch the fact that Lelouch calls C.C. C2??

talk about some messed up plot though, i just finished watching ep 19 last night and man this is some good stuff.

Is this show any good, because all I've seen on the web is lots of fan service, product placement and that it's targeted towards teenagers. I don't really want to see characters doing things because of teenage reasoning, which is made agreeable by how the audience is presented it. I know that it's a general trait of mecha anime, but I'm hoping for something original. Oh and it also seems to be manufactured according to a formula. Your duality, sub kindergarten romance, shock and aww for the sake of shock and aww.

Don't flame me for being ignorant.

When I first watched it I thought it was a slightly lesser Gundam Seed. And there are elements that really cater to that genre. But, by about the tenth episode it had superceded Gundam Seed, in my opinion. It is a MATURE anime. There is no teenage reasoning. Think of Lelouch as Death Note's Yagami Light only more... colourful a la CLAMP (lol). He is a deductive genius, a strategist.

This is a serious anime. It deals with themes of war I've been studying as part of my War and Massacre module e.g. at what point does the killing for the sake of a rebellion become unjustified, should one go with deontological or utilitarian interpretations of morality etc? And the anime is complex in its answers. Both sides of the argument have a REALLY good point, which makes it hard to choose which side you want to win. My way of dealing with the dilemma was to see which side had cooler characters - I'm going with Lelouch. Fucking hate Kururugi Suzaku.

Anyway, give it a go. It is well worth watching. For a sci-fi mecha anime, it is one of those rarities where the PEOPLE matter more than the machines. Yeah, you get some cool fighting, but the focus during the action scenes is on the DIALOGUE and the analytical THINKING of the people involved. This anime is a refreshing spring breeze blowing through the stagnant mecha genre.
