If you're looking for anime similar to Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, you might like these titles.
Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...
I believe you would like Death Note because even though the plot is totally different, it has similar aspects to Code Geass. They both present the stories of antiheroes - good guys who are trying to change the present world into a better world, while at the same time trying to hide the fact of who they are. Both must face ordeals on their path toward their goals.
At first glance there seems to be little that ties Death Note, an intense psychological thriller, to Code Geass, a mecha anime with 1984/Big Brother themes. Upon further inspection, however, one sees similarly inspired protagonists with new power thrust upon them. Each quickly decides to use his newly found power to better the world. While Death Note is more intellectual and complicated, both anime take pleasure in spotlighting mindgames between secret opponents while questioning the main characters' ends-justify-the-means approach to ethics.
Both shows feature a main character who uses his high intelligence to create intricate plans to accomplish his goals and defeat his rivals (who often are just as intelligent and have their own plans). Both main characters straddle the line of good and evil for the sake of justice, and have no qualms or hesitations about sending people to their deaths in order to further their goals. Code Geass has far more action but I'd say that Death Note has more violence and mean-spiritedness.
If you thought Lelouch is mean, just watch Light in action - now that's a badass character. Nonetheless they share the same idea of new, better world and share a resolve to achieve this goal by any means. It leads them to tough decisions about those who they love. Also both received superhuman powers and are masterminds.
Probably the most obvious reason for this recommendation is the ambiguous nature of the protagonists, who utilize their manipulative skills, their intelligence and rather questionable means to achieve their goals. Though Death Note is more of a detective story with supernatural elements and a dark atmosphere, Code Geass is a real robot mecha series with much more vibrant colors. Both question morality and feature strong coalitions between the main characters (though in Death Note they are intellectual battles only, while in Code Geass they are physical battles too).
Death Note and Code Geass are both about dark anti-heroes who live by the saying: the ends will justify the means. Character-wise, they are strikingly close. They both have twisted friendships between really similar people who for one reason or an other end up as enemies.
Code Geass and Death Note are both born of the same breed. Their main characters are super-geniuses who rely on strategy and deduction along with a special power (only one in either anime) in order to try and change the world.
Both toy with what's really right and what's wrong, where the lines of morality lie, and show just how quickly strength can crumble (many times over, in fact.)
Code Geass and Death Note both are similar when it comes to the main characters. They believe in themselves above all else. They challenge the world that doesn't comply with their visions and their dreams, and both gain power in supernatural way that allows them to fight what they see as unjust. Both, as well, have tactical traits and skills which makes them leaders.
Both Death Note and Code Geass follow the life of a boy genius in his quest to change the world. Truly suspenseful drama, brilliant plot twists and pure intelligence liken these 2 series.
If you liked Code Geass I would highly recomend Death Note and vice versa. Both shows feature quite a bit more intellectual sparring than your typical shounen anime, and both main characters have very similar personalities (thery're closer to being the antagonist than the protagonist) and abilities (ridiculously powerful but with prominent weaknesses). Also the main concept of 'changing the world' is present in both of these anime. And if that's not enough for you they are both filled with action and a twisted plot that will keep you wondering what will happen next.
The main parallel that can be drawn with Death Note and Code Geass is with the protagonists. Already having a clear ideal world in mind, and a matching strong desire to create that world, both male students are by chance given an inhuman power. Both taking on fake identities for the public, they use these powers to take control and carry out their plans in an intelligent, calculated way. I even get the same uneasy chill up my spine when either of them smile about things going their way.
Code Geass and Death Note have similar main characters. Their world is split in two, and they have two faces - one which they show to the world and one for themselves. They want to accomplish some big goal. If you liked one, you will like the other.
Death Note and Code Geass have a great and mysterious plot which is their key feature. Every time you get an answer for something, a few more new ones are born. This keeps you intensely wondering what will happen next, but can also be considered a drawback since I personally broke my chair when I saw Code Geass' last episode. If you like unforeseen events you will love these and hate these at the same time. If you think that's not possible just watch them!
I found the main plot of Code Geass and Death Note to be really similar. The world isn't divided into bad and good people like most anime; it's really complex and difficult to understand because former friends may be enemies and the main characters become somewhat paranoid (and I even became paranoid at some points). The protagonists (or antagonists) are given a power that can change the face of the world completely. They have similar character attributes (they're both geniuses) and ways of thinking.
The stories really captivated me because of the good animation and character designs. Another good point is that there are not a lot of characters so the stories are easy to follow.
Code Geass has been nicknamed Death Note lite with good reason. Both involve their main character gaining "powers" and using them to change the world to his own vision, using questionable ethics and manipulation.
While Death Note is very different than Code Geass, the main characters Light and Lelouch are extremely similar in the way they act and think.
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Death Note are very alike yet are far from it at the same time. They are both about an extremely clever boy who receives a special gift (or power, so to say) which he tries to turn the world in to a better place with; though both of their methods can be questionable, their true intension is a better world for all.. Both Lelouch (Code Geass) and Light (Death Note) are slowly consumed by their own power and sacrifices must be made to make the world a better place. These are two very well thought through anime. If you like one I would definitely recommend the other.
Code Geass and Death Note are both stories built around a mastermind sort of character who, when granted a special power, takes it upon himself to improve the world despite causing many deaths in the process. Both anime are centered around this moral dilemma of ends vs. means, as well as the descent of the central characters as they become increasingly drunk on their own power. Having aired at the same time, these two series are pretty much siblings - if you enjoyed one, by all means check out the other.
Both Death Note and Code Geass have a similar lead character and a great story. They are two intense series about the main characters' rise and search for power, although under completely different circumstances.
Both revolve around a highly intelligent young male who happens to possess a unique and deadly power almost by pure chance. Both Lelouch and Light seek to change the world in which they live for the better and use their power and intelligence to do so, countering resistance to their extreme methods with battles of wit. Both anime hover around a gray area, rather than being clear cut as to who is right and who is wrong. It is left to the watcher to decide which side to support and both sides have valid arguments to justify their actions. These anime are good at making you think, though Code Geass has more action in it than Death Note.
Death Note and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion are similar in many aspects. What drew me to them was the strategy implemented by the main characters in each. If you like anime in which the division between good and evil is not too clear, both of these are good choices.
Both Death Note and Geass portray what it means to acquire power, and the ability to control it; the consequences brought about by wielding it as such, and the sacrifices which have to be made in order to achieve one's selfish desires.
While the stories are completely different, both will have you on the edge of your seat in suspense. Whether you're trying to peek around the corner to anticipate the next series of events, or simply enthralling yourself within the complex minds of the many unique characters, you will most definitely find something to enjoy about these anime titles.
In Death Note and Code Geass, you are faced with their main characters wanting to end all wars and evil in order to create a peaceful existence for the good and pure. Both of these characters face tough challenges, enemies, and even close friends who oppose their visions of a perfect world and their means of how they achieve it.
If you liked the intelligent thoughts in ether Death Note or Code Geass, or if you liked Light's or Lelouch's personality, you will love the other.
They are both similar in many ways, such as the similarity between Lelouch and Light. The characters are trying to change their world using their sense of 'justice'; Light with the Death Note and Lelouch with the Geass, both with intelligence and cunning.
If you like either of these series check out the other. Death Note and Code Geass go deeper than the average anime to make you think about your own values and ask you what you'd do in situations where both sides can be right. Both protagonists are also different from the average, as both are fighting against established society. The shows are both serious and more mature than your average anime.
The main characters in Code Geass and Death Note are morally complex, with dazzling intellects that will leave you quite impressed. If you enjoy watching a morally gray protagonist on a quest to achieve a dream by any means necessary, you won't be disappointed.
Like "smart" anime? Then you'd like both Code Geass and Death Note.
Both Death Note and Code Geass work with the idea of controlling people for a greater purpose: to make a better world by your own hand, because nobody else will make it for you. It doesn't matter if you kill one or two people in the process; in the end, it will have been worth it.
It is inevitable that there will be people who disagree with the protagonists' ideas, and that is what makes these anime so interesting.
Death Note and Geass have you questioning whether or not to root for the bad guy. The protagonist is doing something inherently wrong, for what seemed to be a good reason at the beginning before snowballing out of control. Death Note is more of a psychological suspense anime that sucks you in with significantly more inner monologues; there are no secrets about the protagonist's mindset. Lelouch is more of a drama that you can disassociate yourself from, where you can infer the qualities of his character by his actions and brief glimpses into a troubled past.
I think it's only fair to say I had a difficult time relating to either of the lead characters, but drama was kept high throughout both series. Be warned: both of these anime have significant amounts of gratuitous (and often senseless) violence.
Both Code Geass and Death Note involve the use of cunning and strategy to achieve goals rather than brawn. However, to achieve these goals, the protagonists may have to lose some of their humanity in the process. The themes are similar, and people who enjoy one usually enjoy the other.
Both series are quite alike, when it comes to the plot of a young man who wishes to change the wolrd in his view and gains a gift to do just that. They both have a clear goal and will do any thing, and kill anyone, even they own family to make they own wold with them as gods. They are very much alike, so if you loved one you will sure love the other as well.
Both series have a main character who claims to be the bringer of justice, but their methods leave the viewer wondering whether their ideas are truly 'right' or not. Also, there is the supernatural element, where both main characters posess a kind of inhuman power that allows them to become the deciders of justice in the world.
The two series have very similar stories: a genius is given a supernatural power and decides to use it to change the world for the better. However, their methods are of questionable morality, and both the cast and the fans are divided into "for" and "against".
The main character in both series have the great minds that come up with the genuis strategies. They both have a "double-life" as a student or "the friend of justice". Raito and Lelouch both wants to bring "peace" and justice to the world. However, they both do so by using very violet means and may be not considered to be "justice" by some people.
A debatably good, debatably evil utilitarian main character who wants to create a new world coming into possession of a mysterious power and testing it to excess using it in tandem with their already extraordinary intelligence to exploit to it's fullest utility in realizing their goal? Yup, these shows are that similar. The primary difference is the serious, dark, sober (Monster-like) tone and color scheme of Death Note versus the shiny, exaggerated (Gundam Seed-like) mech fighting style of Geass. Also the primary character interactions in Death Note are rivalries and deceptions. Geass is more of the same, but with a few romances as well.
Both Lelouch and Light want to make an ideal world, and will stop at nothing to see their goal reached. While Lelouch uses his Geass to control others, Light uses his Death Note to kill criminals and people that are in his way.
Lelouch and Light both follow their own sense of justice. Both armed with a supernatural ability and unparallel intelligence, they set out to right the world. Anti-heros are becoming more and more popular and for good reason, they are badass!
In Death Note, you have Light, who, through a supernatural being, obtains something, the Notebook, that helps him take over the world in a twisted way. He has someone, L, who is both close to him and is trying to kill his alternate identity, Kira. In Code Geass, you have Lelouch, who, through CC, obtains the Geass. He uses this so that he can kill his father. Suzaku has known Lelouch for a long time, but is trying to kill, Zero, Lelouch's "nickname". These two are virtually parallel in plot, character traits, ect.
I find Code Geass and Death Note to be series of the same vein, perhaps made to compete with each other in late 2006, early 2007.
While Code Geass focuses more on action and mecha battles, and Death Note on criminal intrigue, both series are fundamentally about a mildly sinister protaginist matching wits with an antagonist of equal reasoning ability.
There have been many parallels between the two anime, but both Death Note and Code Geass have seriously genius characters, though Light is more intelligent psychology-wise, whereas Lelouch is more of a master-strategist. Either way, their incredible exploits, which I will not mention due to spoilers, will leave you gaping and saying "holy crap that was incredibly brilliant!". At least it did for me.
Code Geass has a little bit more to offer comedy-wise, though Death Note has funnier eccentric character habits. Like L continuously eating sweets. Though, I must admit that the "epic writing" in Death note was simultaneously compelling and hilarious. I mean, they really know how to glorify writing people's names in a book.
Code Geass has some silly moments, but really, just like Death Note, is an awesome mind-f**k. Both are basically like being hit by a train-wreck from behind. Not only driven by LSD-inhibited monkeys, but completely unexpected. Things are going all dandy and fine, then WHAM! Roadkill. Body parts everywhere, the nearest hospital one hundred miles away.
Code Geass has been described as 'Death Note with giant robots,' and the description does kind of fit the bill. Both of these series star 'villain' protagonists, brilliant youths whose genius combined with a usually distorted sense of morality gets an outlet for their frustrations about the world by a supernatural power with clearly delineated and internally consistent rules. But while Death Note becomes more of a mystery and detective thriller with an epic battle of wits, Code Geass chose a more geopolitical route that required teenagers on the battlefield; that meant giant robots. Code Geass takes the core of Death Note and adds real robot series tropes, and the tropes remarkably add to its awesomeness.
There's a reason why this is such a common reccomendation. Even though the setting couldn't be more different, both storylines is about someone with an incredibly high IQ coming across a new power and using it to make their vision of a "better" world. Both of them also has an "Ends justifie the means" view because both characters commit acts that some would call evil throughout both series you'll find yourself wondering if its all actually worth it.
Code Geass is in fact a mixed of Death Note and some Machin. Why Death Note ? Because the main character is quite intelligent and use his brain for his goal which is to satisfied his blinded younger sister. And of course, instead of having a Death Note and some Shinigami, we can find a "witch" who gave him the power to give an ULTIMATE order which can't be denied, and they are lots of robot fights.Both are GREAT anime MUST-SEE-IT !!
Both Code geass and Death note are way too similar. 2 teenagers getting a strange power and starting to make their own justice until they are consumed by that power. If u liked death note you will defenetly like code geass ...way similar even the main characters. Recomending it fullheartedly.
Both anime are recently discovered gems. I mean it. They are kept in dark and gloomy atmosphere with almost none comedic relief. The main characters are very intelligent and they use their newly accuired powers to change the world. Plot in both series is insanely addicting and when you start watching you just can't stop. I'm sure that both of these anime will be held in few years as highly as NGE is held now.
If you like like shows with a battle of brains, interresting people and good plots then thsese two are worth watching as both have everything above as well some action.
Code Geass and Death Note both have a similarly styled main character: smart, determined, longing to create a better world, and then granted a power to do so. In the case of Lelouch - Geass, the power to give an absolute command to another person, in the case of Light - the death note, the power to kill a person who's real name and face you know.
Both animes will keep you in suspense as the main character puts their plans into play whilst avoiding capture, with plot twists throughout the series. Once you starting watching these, you won't want to stop until you finish them.
In both seiries, the main characters are anti-heors who are trying to overthrough society and change the world into their idea of "better". Each one uses mysterious powers theyve obtained and show incredible stargetic planning to manipulate everyone they need to.
Both anime series deal with the theme of justice. The main protagonist, Yagami Light of Death Note believes that ridding the world of criminals by killing them is justice while Lelouch Lamperouge of Code Geass believes that justice is destroying the evil Holy Empire of Britannia even if he has to get his hands dirty. Are these characters doing the right thing? Is killing justified with justice?
Both Light and Lelouch are sharing the desire to repair the rotten world. Abnormal power given to them by an mysterious individual (Ryuk / C.C.) is allowing them to fulfill it.
Both series are about intelligent revolutionaries who want to change the world into a better place and both protagonists employ means of doing so which could be questioned.
Both series are also filled drama and suspense, betrayal and super-powers, handed to the protagonists.
I think that Code Geass is very simliar to Death Note. While a lot of people might throw Code Geass to the side as another mecha anime it has a lot of the simliar qualities that made Death Note such a hit. Both main characters come across a unique power that drives them to rule the world. Also, they both share the idea that good strategy pays off in the end. Death Note and Code Geass are both more about playing mind games rather than straight action, which makes them so enjoyable to watch
Both series have the same concept - a youth with a vision of their 'perfect world' stumbles upon a supernatural power and embarks on their quest to realise their 'perfect world'. In the process towards the realisation of their vision, they face many moral dilemmas which force us to question - 'is it really worth it?'.
Death Note is set in a more contemporary era, while Code Geass is set in a fictional near future - and Geass definitely has much more action sequences than Death Note. Even so, the main highlight of the series would be the ways the main character in both series manipulate and sway people to realise his goals.
Watch one and liked it? You definitely have to watch the other.
Lelouch Lamperouge and Yagami Light share some characteristics. They both want too change the world at all cost. Not a single death is too much for them. Although there are no Mecha's in Death Note, and no Shinigami's in Code Geass, I am sure that if you liked the one, you will like the other, so jump into the lives of these Anti-Heroes, and see what they will do for their goals!
Both series feature characters who aquire bizzare powers (Lite the Death Note and Lelouche the Geass) and take it upon themselves to use those powers to make the world a better place but are subject to heavy oposition. Both Lite and Lelouche are incredibly smart and must act carefully, fulfilling their objectives while also avoiding being caught. Both series feature engaging plotlines as Lite struggles to remain one step agead to become the god of a bright and ideal world, Lelouche struggles to increase his influence and power to that which he can destroy Britannia. If you enjoyed one, your sure to enjoy the other.
Essentially, Code Geass felt like Death Note-lite in the beginning. Both involve very intelligent, crafty protagnoists.
I think it's quite clear why one should like this anime if he likes the other.
They share many a similarity, maily introduced through the struggeling of the main characters.
Both working towards a goal they see as just, ut at times appear anti-heroic, both have at least four special trait only a selected few have: Intelligence, Determination, Charisma, and last, but not least, a power given to them, almost by chance.
Both animes deal with the corruptedness of the modern world, even through Code Geass doesn't state it openly.
I believe that's more than enough reason to associate these two series.
Death Note and Code Geass focuss on a young genius who gets equipped with supernatural powers which normal humans are incapable to comprehend. Yagami Raitu and Lelouch Lamperouge both decide to chance the world according to their personal sense of justice, but they have to face an equally powerfull adversary who represents the disputable establishment. While Yagamis egoism only allows him fight using others as marionettes, Lelouch soon forms a revolutionary group based on confidence and mutual dependence. Either series contains scenes of great tension, psychological insight and twists, but their most considerable accomplishment may be the demonstration of ambivalance between good and evil.
Code Geass and Death Note go hand in hand. Both are righfully hyped up, which is a great thing as it makes a lot of fans discover an entirely new genre!
If you like one it's unavoidable to not like the other one. Both have the tactical mind games and a similar plot: a supernatural power falling into the lap of a high school student that wants to make the world better for everyone but losing his own purity while purifying the world.
While both work it out differently, since they are so similar it might be best to not watch these two anime back-to-back. But even despite those similarities i definitely recommend seeing both!
I absolutely recommend Death Note if you liked watching Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and vice versa. Two great things about these two shows are. One is they have similar characters. Both have an anti-hero protagonist who wants to reform the word, and the antagonist who stands for justice. What is great about this is that you will be arguing with yourself and everyone else around which side to root for. The second is that the shows' stories and setting are different; and variety is important. Although the sheer amount of recommendations should convince you to watch. If you yet to be convinced please give one a try if you liked the other.
Both series are about a genius human beings who try to change the world inta a better place. The way they act is really suprising and shows how brilliant their minds are.
If your the type of person who enjoys watching an anime from the other side both Code Geass and Death Note happily fill that. Both are exceptionally well made and follow the anti-hero, Light in Death Note and Zero in Code Geass, each having their own agendas to change the way of the world through somewhat questionable methods. Both are brilliant mind games and works with outsmarting the enemy. Well worth watching the other if you liked one.
Both series have SHOCKINGLY similar main characters. Each of them are smart with a very good ability to plan ahaid, yet with a dark side as well. Each series also has similar dark undertones. It's hard to think of any other anime with the level of intensity that these two thrillers bring to the table.
If you want more of that clever, morally ambiguous strategising with lots of cliff-hangers and twists, then look no further. Death Note and Code Geass are twins in that regard. DN may have more developed characters, whilst Code Geass remains very focused upon Lelouch, but in terms of effectiveness they are equals.
I realized the similarities between the two series almost at once. Both series follow extremely intelligent (as well as handsome) young men who are given a special power to carry out their visions for the world they live in. Light (DN) and Lelouch (CG) share many personality traits as well. If you're crazy about Death Note, you'd love Code Geass!
They share the same sort of story on many levels, Lelouch and Light share the same sort of profile. Both are extremely intelligent, both aim to remake the world into a different, better place and both are hunted by the law.
The main difference is that Code Geass is has more action.
Both anime's have a very bright main caracter, Lelouch and Light think things through before they make an act. Both focusses on the story, and therefore the storyline is very good. First thing what i thought after wathing some Code Geass, was how much Lelouch was like Light ^^
Both series are about someone trying to stand for true justice, and to make the world into a better place, to make it into the world that they believe that it should be. Both characters believe that they have the solution to the world's problems, and the right to enforce that solution, without considering the consequences. Both Light and Lelouch are forced to realize these consequences as the story progresses, often to their own regret.
both is about fighting with your mind and intelligence. Lelouch and Light both wants to make a bettre world for everyone and dicides to make it happen. Both Kira and Lelouch have achieved a new power that will help them on the way. Light got the "Death Note" and Lelouch got the "Geass".
Two very similar and yet very different shows that I think complement each other perfectly for the kind of viewer that loves something a little more mentally challenging.
Both shows look at the consequence of one of the "youth of today" getting almost godlike powers, that they use to shape the world into an ideal. Not all of the choices are nice, or ideal, but are more realistic than the perfect happy ending plaguing a lot of shows at the moment.
Both series are about students that lives their normal lives. One day, they get a special power and decide to use that power to bring justice to the world. If you liked one, you'd surely like the other.
Both series center around a highly intelligent guy, who is granted a special power with which he can manipulate others, and who then tries to change the world, while he has to think ahead of his enemies.
Both series have a intelligent calculating anti-hero as the protagonist, who tries to "save the world" while becoming completely crazy!
Both of these Anime have a huge sense of intelligence to the storyline that is unrivaled in my oppinion by any other anime
Both boast highly intelectual character, as well as good vs evil in a stereotypical cat and mouse gam, as well as extreme suspense at the end of every episode making you more and more intreagued into the story and what will happen next.
Extreme excitement all the way to the end, and like any amazing anime has you begging for more when its all over.
I have to say that if you liked one of these anime's you will probably really like the other. Both of the animes have a ton of plot twists and continuous "1 upping" of the protagonist and antagonist. The characters Kira and Lelouch are very similar in the fact that they are brilliant characters and really know how to play their cards. Both of these animes also have heavy plot points on "saving the world" but in the not so traditional sense of that saying. Also, if you like to think, both of these will keep you on the edge of your seat as you try to figure out how they are going to get themselves out of the bind that they just got into
Both Lelouch Lamperouge and Light Yagami are young men who may have the best intentions at heart at the beginning of their journey, however their methods are often cruel and cold making them both anti-heros, and in some cases villains.
Both Code Geass and Death Note have the characters engaging in intriguing battles of wit where it becomes a game of intellect rather than who has the most muscle.
Code Geass, at first glance is not "similar" to Death Note, but as you start watching them, you beign to see a resemblance.
Both story lines involve a character that lives an ordinary life, and one day has a life changing power thrust upon them. And as such, they attempt to use that power to better the world in a way they seem fit.
However, their methods may seem unorthodox, and as such are seen as antagonists in the show.
Also, the "mind games"within each show share similar aspects. Death Note, having the main character duke it out with one or more supposed protagonists in a game of intelligence, gives a feeling it's more about subterfuge of the mind. Whilst Code Geass, the main character is more up against the whole nation of the opposing country, mainly the varying nobles that appear throughout the series.
As conclusion, If you haven't watched either of these two shows, or have only watched one, then it is greatly recommended you watch the other
Well, basically the same plot and characters. Both series feature a shounen with his companions trying to create a "better world". If you liked the other, you'll surely like this one too.
Psychological aspects and mind-twisting moments are abundant in these anime, as two teens use their newly given powers to change the world and make it into what each one thinks of as better. The plot and struggles of the character hiding this power are fundamentally the same, giving both a very similar feel that can mess with your mind.
Both series are about an ambitious character who somehow is granted the power to carry out their ambitions, leaving behind their past lives and moving towards what they consider a "greater good".
Both series are about longing for ruling the world and each side will do everything to their dream come true. Main charcters have similar personality and they are great at strategies. Also they both have god complex.
/*For mods only: Sorry for my bad English but I am from Poland :)*/
They're both very psychological, and they're the same in the sense that the main characters both have this special ability, which is unique to them, or in Kira's case, rare. Both of them wish to do something in the world, and both shows leave it to the watcher to decide whether he's in the right or not.
Both protagonists are Byronic heroes who use morally ambiguous methods to change the world. Death Note focuses more on intellectual and psychological warfare while Code Geass is about actual war and politics. If you liked one, you're bound to like the other. Also, both anime are extremely awesome.
Both series are about young, ambitious and very intelligent students, who get powers that allow them to take an attempt at changing the world. Also, both contains many plot twists and interesting storyline.
Even though Code Geass is more action oriented and have some sci-fi and comedy elements, if you liked one of those series, you'll probably also love the second one.
Both the animes are about a smart, bored guy who get a power to change the world to a better place. They are both pretty dark and gives two sides of the coin, where nothing is really right or wrong.
Both Code Geass and Death Note revolve around a central character who recieves an unearthly power. In both series, Lelouch and Light attempt to change the world for the better using this power and both stories deal with the morals and consequences of their actions.
Both of these awesome series are about a teenage boy who thinks he can change the world. With the help with some of their friends or fans they kill to create a new world. Both have a sense of justice and they both go through challenges to make their dreams come true. Talk about kill to protect.
Although Death Note and Code Geass are not based in the same kind of world, the plotlines are surprisingly similar. Both main characters are given a godly gift that gives them the power to control people to their advantage. They also use their power to try to change the world and make it a better place. The main characters are also similar in personality. Both main characters are bored with the world they live in, and when they receive their gifts they are quick to use them. They are also very intelligent and very good strategists. If you liked one, I can guarantee you will like the other.
Both of these animes involve the main characters making extensive of their intelligence. In both a battle of wits ensues between the 2 main enemies. So if you like animes involve a lot of mental thinking and strategies, then either one of these is right for you.
The world is against them, something must be done. They seek justice by their own way and will get it - anyhow what it will cost.
They got genius minds and when they get little utility to help them, they are unstoppable. Of course there is people who don't like their actions....
Maincharacters resembles eachother: two school students who are masterminds, will get same kinded godlikepowers to kill and enslave people for their same kinded goal: to do the world better place of living.
The similarities are ridiculous. Genius kids using their new god-like powers in order to change the world. The Mecha in Code Geass severely contrasts with Death Note's complete lack of action, but the only reason not to watch Code Geass is if you hate DN or Mecha.
Death Note is more thought provoking and entertaining, Code Greass is definitely something DN fans should pick up. If you enjoyed Code Geass but haven't seen Death Note, watch it NOW!
One thing that those anime have in common is the way viewers are introduced to the plot. It is a series of cliffhangers put together so seemless, that you are unable to see the blind spots. Although Code Geass has more action moments, they both share a rich amount of intellectual content, as questions raised by them are often very serious.
If you have enjoyed the "just one more" feeling watching either of these, don't hesitate and go for the other one.
Both revolve around a brilliant boy with a special ability that he uses to change the world - both Light and Lelouch are malicious and will keep you entertained for hours.
Both animes are based around a protoganist who gets a superhuman ability and uses that to fight their own personal battles with the world, thinking of themselves as superior.
Both also involve the intense use of (psychological) strategic thinking and both series use that as a main focus instead of the resulting action. You won't find pointless action scenes in either shows.
The main character of each of these shows is amazingly similar. So if you liked Light you would also like Lelouch and vise versa. Also there are not very many titles with the anti-hero genre, so these two fit perfectly together.
The main characters of these shows are self proclaimed rulers or gods. They are both brilliant students who see the need for a huge change in the world, and secretly act upon this wish. Using charisma, intelligence, and wit they make clever plans and use people for their cause. Light and Lelouch are extremely similar!
Both shows dealt with the anti-hero thing, and no one in either show is truely evil. The main characters are considered villains to some and saviors to others. Both Lelouch and Light are ruled by their emotions (as anti-heroes usually are), and are extremely intelligent in their own way. They both also seem to have no real interest in women.
same general idea of a genius trying to change the world and make it better, a similar story with the same goals, but different roads to reach them, if you will.
In both animes, a single mastermind tries to change the world according to his beliefs. Lelouch heavily resemples Light. He works behind the curtain, using manipulation and deception.
Both involve genious's, using their intellect to change the world for the better, using god like abilities as their weapon. They are similar because brains, not brawn are usually the major weapons used in advancing the plot and confrontations.
Because of the very intelligent main character, who always will find a way to achieve his aims without hesitation
These two go very well together, while death note could be considered more "mature" than code geass they are both incredu=ibly similar, though the main character of death note being a little more inhinged than Lelouch.
If you liked "Code Geass" you'd aslo like "Death Note" and vice versa. Both anime have very similar main characters, the boys who want to change the world. These guys are clever, they have an extraordinary powers and a great senses of justice.
In both stories the characters are trying to reform the world with their own hands and eventually gain recognition from the world. Their actions also impacted the planet in many ways.
Both shows depict the world as an unjust place, where all wrongdoers are not punished. In addition, both protagonists (Lelouch and Light) take the task of bringing justice into their own hands, despite they might hurt themselves and those close to them.
Both anime talks about school students under disguise and they want to take over the world (mostly). Both anime have "gods" witch going everywhere where that studend goes. Both anime are smart, with a little humor in it.
Both series are about an anti hero that gains a power that he uses for a good purpose that does not end well.
Both series seems to mysteriously make you root for the bad guy though...interesting.
Both main characters want to change the world by any means neccesary, in Death Note this happens by writing bad peopels names into a notebook, and then they die. For Code Geass, the main character can manipulate peopel to do whatever he wants if they lookinto his eye, and wants to use it to make a better world.
As I was watching Death Note I thought "Oh my goodness! This totally makes me think of Code Geass!"
Both main guys are very alike in the fact that they are so smart that they can do anything they set their mind to (and I do mean anything). They can also be called crazy for the things they do.
Both series also have that dark element to them but Death Note definitely has more of that.
Both of these shows are thought-provoking, "manipulative murder-mysteries" (in the wide sense of the word, since in Death Note they are just individual deaths whereas Code Geass are more about just manipulating people en mass and killing them for convience), where the main protagonist is an anti-hero, "gifted" (or should i say, cursed) with a beyond human power, with which he attempts to make the world a better place.
Unfortunately, the closer they strive towards the light, the further they step into the darkness... resulting in wonderfully intriguing storys which have left their mark on anime-history.
If you want one word to describe these shows, it can only be EPIC!
Death Note and Code Geass both follow a similar principle: High school student gets a strange power, in one case the Death Note and the other Geass, and try to change the world with it. Both weilders of the power have amazing thinking capabilities and are the most brilliant strategists of their world, knowing both themselves and everyone around them far too well because of their personal behavior.
Both anime shows have an interesting, intelligent and troubled main character, who desperately tries to accomplish his goals. Lelouch (Code Geass) and Yagami Light (Death Note) encounters many different worthy enemies. Also, both anime series have a lot of twists and turns, which makes the show very interesting and unexpected.
Code Geass and Death Note have many same facts. One is breaking the rules of God and the main characters aim to become God themselves. The two anime are also like a DEATH game. You lose you die but when you win you will rule. Watching every single minute of the two cause they are hard to understand if you miss one moment in the two series. enjoy ^^
If you like Code Geass, you will probably like Deat Note as well, 'cos they both have same sort of main charachter, who manipulates people arounf him with some sort of special power.
Both Code Geass and Death Note present two factions and their leaders fight for their own definition of the "greater good". In both, there is a single, extraordinary and hidden power that shifts the balance. There's no typical "evil side", as both have their reason for fighting. The relationship between the opposants makes the battle personal.
Fighting for different definitions of the "greater good" is what defines both of these series, both excellent. Code Geass is more oriented toward action, as Death Note concentrates more on the strategies, but in both case both strategy and secrecy are proeminent. Both recommended.
What would happen if a high-schooler with strong ideals was to recieve a power that could change the world? Both shows follow an incredibly smart main character with such power in their quest to reach their ideals, and they won't let anything get in their way to do so. These two shows can best be described as "battle of wits" anime, where the main character is constantly playing mind games with his enemies and often comes up with brilliant stragegies.
These shows are, at their core, two of the same kind, only in a different cover.
Adding another rec to this pile seems a little redundant, but these two series really do match ridiculously well. Both include a well intentioned extremist who comes across a super power and decides to use it to change the world.
Both animes are about people who possess special power, and who want to use that power to achieve their goals, which is making the world a better place to live in.
Each tells a story about a person that gains a power and wishes to us this new founds power to help change the world they see as un just. Using brilliant stratigies to help them along with their plans and associats that others do not know about (or in Ryuks case can't see.). Each of the chacter's acts impacts the world in more ways then one. (and not for the better I might add.). If you liked one then you may like Death the other as well.
Both Light from Death Note and Lelouch from Code Geass have great intellect with two great ways of taking over the world. Both fast paced and suspenseful with a handful of jaw dropping twists.
I don't think there's a better rec for Death Note or Geass than the other - both star brilliant anti-heroes who engage in psychological warfare with the rest of the world, for the sake of rebuilding it to be 'better'.
The main reason why Code Geass and Death Note are compared so often is Light's uncanny resemblance to Geass's Lelouch. Both gain an ability by accident(or by fate if you want to call it that) that can change the world. Both are very intelligent, witted, manipulative, and have a twisted sense of justice that they attempt to justify. The main difference is that Code Geass has mechs and is a bit more colorful while in Death Note, Light is a bit more clever and emotional.(The cleverness factor is up for debate, as many people will argue that Lelouch is more clever than Light) Another important key difference is that while Light is a more overall emotional character, he has almost no emotional attachment whatsoever to any other human.(His father was minimal and ultimately just a pawn in his game) Lelouch, is just as manipulative as Light, but does show a bit more of a charasmatic nature and his unconditional love towards his sister in the beginning of the show illustrates that perfectly.
Another bonus of Code Geass is that it's ending and second season is MUCH better and well done then Death Note's.
Overall, If you like Death Note, then you are almost SURE to enjoy Code Geass. Geass has a bit more humor and action, may not be AS psychological, but it's pretty damn close.
Both of these series have a very strong physiological approach to them with very intricate plots and well thought out plans. Also, in both of them, the main character is given a new power and a chance to change the world they live in.
you would definitely like this one as well as it involves a main character who thinks steps ahead like lelouch and it is really good
both anime showed the main character as an intelligent and rude/strong person who is able to think and act fast in a difficult scene or situation if you like one you will love the other one...!
These two animes are similiar in the thing i love the most. Young inteligent guy will obtain some kind of power, and he balance at "good vs evil" border, that you dont know which side you want to win. Both these animes throw you into confusion like "Who is good and who is evil ?".
Code Geass and Death Note actually look a lot like each other and they are both awesome. the story line basic is almost the same but in an other way they are totally different. i recommend you guys to watch both of them and have a lot of fun;)
Both Code Geass and Death note feature main characters who are genius masterminds. In both series, the events focus how the main characters use their intelligence to manipulate the storyline and others involved.
Both of the main characters originally intend to use their powers to make the world a better place in their own way; however, neither characters' plan goes the way they expected. In both series there are elements of tragedy that arise from the use of the powers, and both characters' power ultimately leads to their own downfall. Both characters also act in secret and hide their identities throughout the series.
The core elements of Code Geass and Death Note are extremely similar; if you liked one series you are almost sure to like the other.
Both Death Note and Code Geass have a similar main character. Both are anti-hero archetype and are striving for world domination (sorta). Both characters also have a secret power that they use for their deeds.
These 2 series are a lot alike. Lelouch and Light both find an amazing power, have kinda the same goal, they are both geniuses. The main difference is that while Death Note refers to the current world, Code Geass takes place in the future. In my opinion, Code Geass is just as amazing as Death Note! P.S. I recommend watching Death Note, and then Code Geass, though it doesn't really matter...
Code Geass and Death Note have similar main characters that are somewhat of an "anti-hero" type. They use intellect to change the world to their ideals and understand that it comes at a high cost sometimes.
Death Note and Code Geass starts out almost identically. Both Lelouch and Light have big ideals how to make world better place and are granted with powers to make their ideals true. The series are very different from each other but the aspect that made them good is same; two master minds fighting against bigger enemy. If you like Code Geass or Death Note you'll like the another too.
Well the complex is very similar the way of fighting is in both Anime's by the mind and mostly all fights are decided by the mind alone.
I would recommend code geass to any one who like death note (or the reverse) but only if you liked the idea that there is a very inteligent student who plans to destroy the government and rule the world on his own. I say this because both the series have a totally different setting but the one thing they have in common is the protagoinst
These two are fairly similar in concepts. - 'Character gains special power and uses it to his advantage to rid world of evil.'
Even if you do not like one, give the other a watch. You may find (like me) it's more interesting and appreciate it more than you expect.
Code Geass and Death Note are the only two animes that I didnt want to watch, but instead, I HAD to watch them.
DN and CG both had only limited runs, they knew the story line and cut themselves off without dragging the story on too far. Both take a serious look at what a person might do when presented with extraordinary power.
I love both of these series because they naturally insert the typical Japanese anime humour, but dont allow it to control/ruin the entire show. The serious elements of the show make them fantastic.
Both shows have their mental twists that make the viewer say, "I can't believe what he's become."
Death Note and Code Geass are almost a twins. Both characters, Lelouch and Raito are very intelligent people who got a chance to change the world.
They rule, cheat, trick and manipulate a lot of people, even closest family to aquire their goal. They're ready to spare people lifes either.They both loose control of everything and fall down.
However, action in Code Geass happens in whole world, it have nice battles and more 'emotional'.
If you enjoyed Code Geass or Death Note, I'm sure you'd enjoy the other, because the main characters are true masterminds and both storylines take several twists. Although the plots are totally different both provide drama, thrills and excitement with similar elements.
They both resolve around a battle of wits, instead of a battle of pure strength. Also Lelouch and Light can be compared to eachother, so could L and Suzaku i guess, but not as much as light and lelouch. The animation style on these two are both really awesome.
They're both really over the top and have a similar energy to them. They also have some really great music and funny dramatic talks that really suck you in.
The main characters of Code Geass and Death Note have intentions of eliminating people to take over the world. They are both highly intelligent, and they have some sort of power to eliminate people. If you watched one of these series, then you will really like the other.
When watching Death Note for the first time I constantly related it back to Code Geass. The main characters are both driven by the desire to create a new world.A world where there is peace. Although Lelouch keeps changing his reason for fighting his overall objective remains the same while Light will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Both characters are highly intelligent and possess a genius level intellect. They both face strategic and physiological obstacles. If you watch Death Note and Code Geass they will both give you seriously amazing plot lines and a epic story to match. Plus a few twists along the way. I recommend you watch both and get a taste of some suspense.
Both of the Main Characters are actually the bad guy in the show, and everyone is trying to catch them.
I think you would like Death Note because of the similar idea. You see the 'bad guy' in action along with all his reasons. Just like Lelouch, Light is a genius who has obtained a unique power and believes he can change the world with it ; and just like him he is ready to do anything in order to achieve his goal.
Both anime are similar in the fact that two school boys are discusted with the world, and they both obtain the power to change it. In the beginning they both have the same goal; to change the world for the better. As Lelouche stuck to his goal and ultimately helped the world, Ligh, the star if Death Note, ultimately hurts the world with his evil discions.
All Avid Death note fans will definitely like Code Geass and vice versa.
Both feature a Chess like approach to the strategic battles in Code geass whereas life and death in death note.
If you like one definitey watch the other
Both Death Note and Code Geass showcase protagonists of questionable morality who acquire supernatural abilities and use them to further their particular agenda. In addition, both of the protagonists are intelligent chessmasters who formulate ingenious plans to outmanever their foes, and both face antagonists of similar intelligence to their own. Lastly, both stories have innumerable surprising plot twists as the protagonists and antagonists try to outmaneuver each other.
Death Note and Code Geass show the life of a young man, who was given some kind of “power” (Lelouches Geass and Lights Notebook). They both start to use the power while the original owner has an eye on them. They attempt to bring justice and peace to the world.
Light and Lelouche share many characteristics. For example, both are pretty good at “manipulate” people into doing exactly what they want. Both are very good strategists. Both anime are kinda dark, but still realistic. They demonstrate how people can change by gaining a power that let them be/play “god” and judge others. While watching both, you’ll may wonder if you should actually like the MC or hate him.
If you've sympathised with either of the heroes at some point during your watching, chances are fairly high that you'll like the other anime. Both of them involving bad-ass antiheroes with supernatural abilities, intrigue and world-changing storyline.
If you liked either Death Note or Code Geass, I highly recommend the other one to you. Both of the main characters are anti-hero's, and they both use their superior intellect and a cool power to persue their own means.
Both shows are about teenager who tries to be god of a new world. Both of them are students with high intelligent, so it's not hard for them to manipulate with other people. Kira and Lelouch are trying to create a world without badness, because they have their own purpose for doing that. Kira and Lelouch chose very cruel way of doing that. Even though Code geass has more action, it's really similar to Death note.
Both of these series are similar in how the main characters think and hide themselves. The shows are very mature and makes you constantly question who is right and who is wrong. Great shows both.
They are both similar in many ways. The similarity between Lelouch and Light. The characters are trying to change their world using their sense of justice, but have to do it in secret. Light as Kira with the Death Note and Lelouch as Zero with the Geass. They are both students of high intelligent.
These two shows are similar in a sense that the man character wants to make the world a better place for the future. The main characters in both series are both very intelligent and are very entertaining to watch.
They are both anti heroes series, the best of there kind, both are a must watch and seriusly, if you liked one it would be really wierd if you don't like the other, so give it a try.Well the differense is death note is more intense, more mind tricking then code geass, but code geass has more action and other elements included:)
The main simalarity between Death Note and Code Geass lies in the protaganists. Both Lelouch (Code Geass) and Light (Death Note) are made into the villain in both animes, however a villain who many watchers may root to suceed. They are both fighting for what they believe to be a noble cause, and go through anyone in their way, be they friend or foe, in order to achieve their goal. Both are brilliant evil masterminds and whether you love or hate them, they are both undeniably entertaining to watch.
Code Geass and Death Note are two peas in a pod! The similarities are quite astounding with the main characters have a great power thrust upon them. While each uses their high intelligence to use that power for their own causes the dark world of human nature comes into play
If you liked Death Note or Code Geass, you'd like other because Death Note = Code Geass. It's not copy of each other but it's very very simmilar. They has many things in common. The stories and characters of both animes are very simmilar. The difference is that Code Geass has more action.
As Yagami Light wants to destroy all the evil in the world, Lelouch wants the same. They both wants to make a new world and be the God of that world.
There's more things in common between these animes, but I won't write them because I don't want to spoil you.
Both the first and second season of Code Geass display an anti-hero whose main objective is good. They both are (relatively) normal people who attain great power and use it in some harsh ways for the end result of good. Also, the main theme of both is really a battle of wits, so if you liked one, you'll like the other.
In both of the animes the main character possess a ability that makes them superior to other humans and they both use their abilities to change the world according to their own moral opinion.
These are the greatest anti-hero and psychological animes ive ever seen!. These shows are so similar is basically them against the world. If you like strategic animes you have to watch code geass and death note!.
Lelouch from Code Geass and Yagami Light from Death Note are similar characters. They both obtain a certain power and they both attempt to reshape the world with it to make it as they believe it should be.
In each of these anime, we follow the disastrous story of a young "anti-hero" who randomly acquires one day, for no apparent reason, a powerful ability who comes disturbing the course of his life. Then, assisted by the character who "unintentionally" gave them their powers (Ryuk in Death Note and C.C. in Code Geass.), they use their newly acquired ability, in addition to their already "higher than average" intelligence and logical mind to defy the authority in order to turn the world they live into something better. (At least, from their own perspective.)
It was clear to me somehow almost right away, after just a few epizodes... These two series have something very much in common. The main characters, Light and Lelouch are both young and bright boys with noble intentions which get somewhat twisted and complicated along the way... The background and story are different, however I couldn't help but feel these two anime being the most alike from what I've seen so far. I'm totally rooting for Lelouch
The world needs to be changed, and you know how to do that. The problem is you do not posses the power... for now. You know that world is rotten, yet you are unable to do anything about that... but on some day you received The Power. Now - people who made others suffer - should be prepared, you will judge them.
You will change the world to a better place. Even if you need to destroy it first
....that would be your plans if you were Light Yagami or Lelouch ;)
I recommend Death Note with Code Geass since both main characters have a lot in common, like how they got powers from someone or something.
these two awesome animes are not similar, but they have something in common: their main characters are antiheroes, very clever ones.
Lelouch and Raito have two sides, a good side and a bad side, and in the end, everyone figures out it.
If you love psychological anime with strong minded main characters you'll love both of these.
Sick and Twisted leads. These animes have lead charaters that will leave you shocked and disgusted. The mind games are abundant. Excellent engrossing stories.
Both of these anime center around a anti-hero. The main character's have many similarities but with that said they have their differences which make these anime stick out from the crowd of crap.
Well both are psychological and have really awesome plots though both are different, Both main characters are extremely intelligent keep you seated thinking about what they are gonna do next.
Both Death Note and Code Geass contain a highly intelligent protagonist with the ability to change the world to his will. Both Light and Lelouch attempt to use their powers to "create a better world". They also obtain their powers from an outside, supernatural source.
While Code Geass is more action based than Death Note, both stories have an almost too similar story line with strategy geniuses for main characters. Lelouch and Light are very similar characters except one has a mecha to do his bidding while the other has a god of death. If you liked the mind bending storyline and very interesting characters of Code Geass than you'll definitely enjoy Death Note and visa versa.
AMAZING! HAs great story line like code geass. Light Yagami is similar to lelouch. BEginning middle and end will make u want MORE
both have an extreemly intellegent male lead that want to change the world. i love how in death note the main character light trys to become a god with the opwer he obtains.
The leading characters of both shows are very alike. They both want to change the world to their ideals and they both have the power to do so. Can't recommend either of the enough! Watch them!
both are about the ends justify the means, power currupts, etc...
I just wanna say they are both pretty awesome.
Code Geass and Death note are quite similar in the Intelligence level of the main character, though the difference is probably that Lelouch from Code Geass deals a lot with emotion, while Light is always sure of what to do. Also Death Note's happenings happen way faster than those of code geass.
Both animes are very alike, even though death note is better in my opinion, Code geass is definately worth watching
Even though the setting in the series is not similar, there's just something about the main characters in both Death Note and Code Geass that is strikingly similar: They're highly intelligent, cunning, and posession of great power, which they intend to use for their own purpose, be it good or evil. And most of all, they're sodarn likable!
Chances are, if you loved one of these, you're going to love the other.
Light Yagami and Lelouch Lamperouge are kinda "separate at birth" characters. The difference - and it's not a little one - is that while Light fails to rescue himself, Lelouch in the end redeems himself. Twist-plot at their best in DN, a little bit confusing sometimes in CG. Psychologically speaking DN is superior to CG, but it lacks in action. If you are someone who likes god-like characters than both can please you very well...
Both of these shows are extremele similar. The main characters are both just sadictically manipulative, and they both create some very intricate plans during their attempt of rising to power. They are very fun to watch and I am sure you would enjoy them both.
Both Code Geass and Death Note both have similar leading characters in that they both manipulative and immoral methods of achieving their grand goals. They are similar also in that the leads create intricate and interesting plots which entertain viewers greatly.
Both of the main characters have that screwed up but intresting personality of thinking doing evil things to try to make another evil thinggo away is ok in itself. They both think there the boss of the world they both of have tools of hell and they both have admierers. They both are undercover in a sense
Both Light and Lelouch share so many similarities it is unbelievable. Each is given a supernatural power (Light can kill any person if he knows their name and face by using a notebook; Lelouch can can mind control any person by direct eye contact) and each is highly intellectual. Both animes hold an extremely intense plot that makes full usage of every episode with no fillers. Both animes also have a high emphasis on morality and choice, especially as you watch both main characters be forced to make morally questionable decisions for the "greater good".
Between Lelouch and Death Note, you'll notice the similarity between their darkness, both are antiprotagonists. Evil main characters.
In Code Geass and Death Note. Both of the Main Characters come across a power they can use to change the world. Light Yagami Finds the Death note which is a Book Of death, You write their name down they die. Lelouch finds a girl who has a power called Geass which is a power to Command someone and they have to do it. They Both use this power to change the world. They both have Characters vs eachother for what they believe in. Light vs L (or Kira vs L), and Lelouch vs Tsuzaku ( Zero vs Britania). Im sure you WILL most Definetely Like code geass if you like Death note. Just because Code geass doesnt have that thriller, and it does have a bit of romance in it doesnt mean Its not good :) so please watch both.
Both anime show a protagonist who gets some "super-power" and starts fighting "for a better world" with it. Both heroes are genius and use their mind to win with their opponents. If you liked one you should like other.
from the laugh itself, lelouch and light share the same creepy laugh. The story and the intention of both the protagonist are also similar. One is to get rid of crimes in an extreme way/power, one is to get rid of Britannia by also using power.
Both animes involve a very intelligent man who obtains the power that can be used to change the world. They want to create a new world in which everyone will live peacefully, but others think the way they want to fulfill this is wrong and so a battle begins. Along the way you don't know what is good and evil anymore. The power consumes them and they slowly become mad. If you're into mindgames I can really recommend both of them. If you liked one of them, you'll definitely like the other as well.
Both anime deal with the main characters obtaining supernatural powers. Both of the main characters are masterminds in that not only are they changing the world for the better, they're manipulating the people around them so they don't learn about their powers.
Raito And Lelouch are very simmilar. They have God complex, and they are anti-hero. They are trying to take over the world.
Both main characters are highly intellectual strategists that keep you wondering what their next move will be against unbelievable odds
Both Lelouch and Light (Death note's main character) are super smart and are given some little power. They impose their view of the world no matter what with brio, bringing that little power to the max, climbing to the top but anonymously, only under the trait of a character. The way, they outpass the government in place is jubilatory.
I you liked one or these character you have to watch the other anime.
these two are in my top 5 anime are the best anime ive ever watched
death note is a psychological anime thats why i loved it, it has a good plot very good designed characters nice graphics
code geass is a psychological anime too it has good graphics good plot it has giant robots
lelouch and light are very smart characters and are my favourite characters
just is something i dont like about these animes THE ENDING very sad ending
P.S. IF YOU DONT WATCHED DEATH NOTE AND CODE GEASS YOU SHOULD WATCH IT
and for the baka that not like death note and code geass i have two words to say to them GO TO HELL
The protagonists of these series both possess a great deal of cunning and intelligence, which they leverage in an effort to reconstruct the world to fit their ideals.
they are extremely similar...both feature a protagonist who wants to better the world and attain a "power" which they proceed to use towards said goal. They both can be quite depressing at times though...
Both 'Death Note' and 'Code Geass' have a 'game of wits' feel to them. The main character of both have a big goal in mind and will do almost anything to achieve it, and they both use their wits to defeat their enemies.
The similarities between the two main characters in terms of intellectual skill and a need to make the world stand as it should in their eyes brings forth a cunningly clever storyline.
Well those two anime are about a boy that gains a power and tries to change the world and make it a better place they're both antihero and they're both cool xD
The main characters are very similar in their dark ideals. It's truley beautiful story telling and even if you don't like mecha you'll enjoy this series.
The main characters in both series is a brilliant man. Through dark deeds they want to do good. Both are entertaining in the way things complicates for their ideas and how they always seem to dodge the bullets.
Both Kira and Lelouch think in a similar type of way when it comes to tactics. Both are freaking smart. So if you like one there are high chances you'll like the other.
The protagonists in these shows are masterminds, and their cunning plans will keep having you looking forward to see what they think up next!
Both of these animes are in my top 5 animes for similar reasons. If you were to put into a specific filter "anti-hero", these 2 animes along with the second season of code geass which is better than the first. Both have amazing storylines and you can decide who the protagonist is and who the antagonist is. Don't think Code Geass is just another Gundam cause you'll have another thing coming to you.
Lelouch's character rivals that of Yagami Light. Very well plotted and garenteed to emotionally connect with the viewer. Serious god-complex and will not stop until the world is changed.
If you liked Death Note or Code Geass, you'd like the other because both have an anti-hero that tries to make their world a better place with some kind of superpower. The plans these anti-hero's make are ingenious, unique and entertaining. Code Geass is more action packed, while Death Note focusses more on Mind-Games.
They both have anti-hero's, complex plots, and strange powers! Even if they are different, they both make you think and have people trying to make the world they want.
They are both trying to conquer the world with superpowers killing all the stupid people in complicated ways.
I believe you would like it because they both have the main character as someone who tries to do good for the world but ends up being the bad guy.
The themes are similar, both want to change the world and they have supernatural powers to do so. Moreover, the main character is "evil" so you get the same feeling you're rooting for the wrong person.
The anti-hero in each anime tries to rid the world of evil in order to be God of a new, perfect world. Both Light and Lelouch are given the power to do just this, and there are people trying to stop Light and Lelouch from achieving their goal. However, this is where they differ. Lelouch is an anti-hero, but he cares for his friends and beloved sister up until the end. Light does in the beginning, but becomes truly insane and kills anyone, not just criminals.
Both of these are absolutely amazing and deserve your attention. I was blown away by the story, the depth of characters, and pretty much everything. Even though the setting is completely differnet, both Protagonists share the same traits. A must watch.
Both Code Geass and Death Note share key compenents that make them extremely interesting. They are based more on the intellect battles between powers, instead of the actual physical power. They both have people who intend to change the entire world, with their smarts alone. They are both about geniouses who pull strings from the shadows to change everything, while having different endings, they both are trying to change the world for the better.
They both employ Genius tactics that come to play only when you see no hope, and both share the supernatural trait of controlling ones actions, albeit to differen't extremes.
This is one of the best animes out there. Light and LeLouch are all the same. I wonder what would happen if they met each other? Anyways, Light and LeLouch both are secret killers who obtain a power that only select others have. They use it in a way to bring justice. But the story line is totally different, though the general concept is the same.
Both have a protagonist who's trying to change the world with a newly obtained power. The main characters each have to hide there identity as there are people close to them working against him.
Both are very good thrillers, although Code geass is more balanced between the psychological, action, drama and comedy, while Death note focuses more on the psychological content. In fact I would reccommend watching Death note first, the pace and action that happens in Code may cause Death Note to seem a little slow in comparison. Both contain the dark/anti-hero protagonist. If you like stragetic-genius type protagonists bent on changing the world, and willing to do so by any method, then try these out.
The main character's morals are pretty similar and both gain an incredible type of power that leads them into control.
The main characters (Light and Lelouch) are extremely inteligent and plan every move so that in the end they can achieve their goal. They both have a good purpose for going through this psychological fight and have enemies which are trying to avoid their success. Both plots make you want to know what's gonna happen next as the mystery and suspense is very intense. These anime are like puzzles that make you want to put all the pieces together.If you liked one than you have to try the other.
Code geass and death note are both very psychological and the main protagonists (light and lelouch) are antiheroes, both protagonists are very cunning and intellectual and are able to plan every little detail out.
the main characters both want to change the world (Lelouche wants to change it for his sister, while Raito does it for humanity(?) )
Lelouch is very similar to light. Both shows are a battle of wits with both main characters gaining a special power.
Both the anime has the same kind of main charecter; suddenly gaining super power. and then going crazy. Thats the best way to put lelouch and Yagami. Both talented and crazy.
Both involve a protaganist who can be Good or Bad depending on your view. Both have a deep, interesting story ilne with many many twists that will leave you at the edge of your seat
Both of these anime involve a charatcer who is second to no one in the strategy realm. In Death Note the main character uses a notebook to accomplish his agenda. In Code Geass the main character uses a rebel army to work towards his agenda. In the end both the main character's efforts result in something other than what they were expecting to happen. Death Note ends kind of awkwardly while code geass ends solidly.
Death Note was my favorite anime of all time, and still is. However after finishing Death Note I looked for something similiar to it and found Code Geass. I didn't have high expectations at first, but as soon as I watched the 1st episode I knew it was going to be amazing. And it was. I can say that if you like one you WILL like the other
both have awesome main characters who you will like and hate and there are some awesome strategies, both lead double lives
If you are looking for a manipulative, undoubtely intelligent, morally ambigious main character who is using a supernatural ability try to change the world for the "better"... Well, in that case either one of these if a good option.
If you like one, there is no good reason to not watch the other.
These two animes are so similar it is ridiculous. Both the protagonists are given a power by a god-like figure and use it to change the world. Both main characters are very smart, and tackle the challenges they face in a very similar way. If you enjoy one, you'll definately enjoy the other, they're just too similar for you to not get what you find in one anime in the other.
they are both similar having the same outline of a guy who acquires power and uses it to reach his goal. The ending is a lot different though. But if you love one you will love the other.
Death Note and Code Geass are both anime which involve alot of thinking, trap setting and its almost like a war of the minds.The Main Characters in both animes are very similar becuase of their desire to create a better world using ways which are not very pure. Both characters dont't seem to have disregard for human life. They were both amazing animes.
Both great animes, with psycological themes that will pick at your brain. Both backed by supernatural elements, and powers to control, i find it hard to comprehend how and deathnote fan wouldn't like this anime (and vice-versa).
The characters have both the god complex and has almost the same speech. However, Code Geass is more a military battle whereas Death Note is more a battle of wit.
The only thing i will add is that the protagonists think alike.
Only difference between them is that Lelouch is trying to save Japan and Light is trying to save the world.
Both series have a main character with a massive intellect in a battle to create a better world. Both have a supernatural aspect to them. And overall, are great pieces of art.
Both are notable for their ruthless, intellectual protagonists. Death Note is darker, with a true anti-hero.
Both absolutely brilliant anime's. As soon as I finished watching Death Note I was searching for animes similar to it, and then I watched Code Geass. Both are ranked 1 and 2 in my favourite animes of all time.
So many people have recommended these two already but I have no choice but to agree with them. The main characters have similar views on how the world should be and they have powers to change it to their liking. The stories are a bit similar too, but not too much. Talking about the atmosphere ... Death Note is definitely darker than Code Geass, Code Geass has it's rare moments of humor and it's nothing unsuitable. At least not in my opinion. I think these two are definitely worth the watch.
Both are about a young boy who is incredibly smart and bored with the word, until they become the chance to show their intelligence. Both can think up the most amazing plans and you need to be fit in your brain to follow either of them.
It seems like there are few similarities between these two series, but both delve into the psychological aspects of obtaining a great power. Lelouch has his Geass, which allows him to control others, and Light has a Death Note, which allows him to kill anyone as he long he knows the name and face of the person. Code Geass goes more in depth with the political aspect. Both series have incredibly intelligent and attractive male leads. A major difference in Light and Lelouch is that Light is very athletic while Lelouch is not. Both series have an amazing plot that will have you on the edge of your chair. If you enjoyed one, I defintely reccomend watching the other!
The main reason i like both shows is the main character.
If you like Stubbornly intelligent and intelligently stubborn, fighthing in his own way, highly narcissistic and selfish, thinking big, devilishly clever characters
there you go :) Both main characters are like this. Lelouch is maybe a bit more emotional compared to Light/Kira but nonetheless, they are hardcore :)
Awesome stories of the climb to power, but in very different ways. Fantastic character development means you sometimes don't know how to feel about the main characters, and the plot makes you desperate to find out what happens next
The stories of both anime’s are created through the way the main characters in both want to change the world. These characters are also really similar too each other due being perceived as extremely intelligent through Lelouch Lamperouge being this master mind chess player, and Light Yagami scoring 100% on his exam. Both characters also have these supernatural companions that give them the power to change the world in Code Geass it was C.C. that gives Lelouch the power of geass, and Death Note it was Ryuk that gives Light the power of the Death Note. Both characters have obstacles that they must overcome to reach their final goal. In both shows these main characters really show just how smart they are when getting over the many obstacles that they face. So if you liked one of these characters and how they dealt with their problems, you will like the other.
If you enjoyed the character of Light Yagami and the way in which he out smarted his opponents with his intelligence then you will thoroughly enjoy Code Geass. Although the story of Code Geass is completely different the characters of Light and Lelouch are extremely similiar and I found myself enjoying both anime thoroughly. This reccomendation also goes if you enjoyed the character of Lelouch and are looking for an anime with a similiar character. In which case i would highly recommend Death Note.
Death Note And Code Geass are both animes that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, if you liked one you'll like the other.
Both Lelouch and Light are almost the same character. they are both people with a god complex, a big ego,a high school student, manipulative, have a secret identity,is a teenager, has reason for killing people,is manipulative, and at the start of the anime has way too much time on their hands.
In both of these series the main character gets a supernatural power which they start to use to mold the world to their liking. Plenty of devious plotting ensues and even a single mistake can be fatal. Everyone around the main characters is a mere chess piece to be used to reach goals.
Death Note and Code Geass will surely drive you to the edge of the seat. If you enjoyed one, you will love the other as well.
They are anime with very different plots and are in different genres yet seem so similar. Both features main characters with a very powerful ability, both want to create a perfect world and both are very intelligent. Both are amazing and i think you will love it.
They were my kind of mind thrilling heart racing genres. Death Note is my favorite and Code Geass: R1 & R2 is my second favorite. They keep me thinking and I have seen Death Note enough times in the subbed that now I can watch it in Japanese without it. Makes it easier to learn the language. :P https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFa8V4Ljq9Kgv92wiATUZ1w
This is a very common anime that most have heard of, but if you have not seen it and enjoyed code geass then i would suggest Death Note. It has alot of the strategy and mind games going on just like in code geass.
I love both series and their main characters, since lelouch (Zero) and Light (Kira) are kinda simmelar. Both series involve a lot of thinking and action, and are about out smarting the enemy. I recommend both!
Death Note and Code Geass are very easily the two best animes I've ever seen. Light and Lelouch are similar characters, although Light's mind goes a bit sooner than Lelouch. They both are trying to change the world they live and and are the perfect anti-heroes. They gain a sort of super power that allows them to start a rebellion or sorts. Death Note is a mystery, a game of cat and mouse in secret. Code Geass is much more out in the open but just as psychological. I highly recommend you watch both of them.
Both are one of my TOP anime. Lelouch and Light both are smart guys that use their minds in impressive way.
I won't say much. Both Code Geas and Death Note are a race of incredible minds, of strategy and psycology versus the sins and the human flaws of the opponents. They are both aboout an Epic battle of heart, willpower and the dark side of the human soul. Both will affect you, both will make you live through them unabling you to return to reality.
Both Death Note and Code Geass have a dark sense about looking at the way humans. Two students taking it on themself to fix the world. Both of them feel that it isn't good enough and want to fix it for themself or someone else.
For people who watched either of the 2 animes the other is the perfect and logical continuation. These 2 are my favorite 2 animes mostly because they have a great lead character. The biggest difference: With DN, the first part of the series is the better part, while the ending, well lets just say it could have been better. With Code Geass: fantastic start, a little repetitive in the middle, and the best ending i have ever seen in an anime series.
Both deal with changing the world for the better, in there own way, and the person whos doing all this world changing has a special power.
The main characters are highly intelligent psychopaths, who want to change the world; both having a secret identity and a special power. While Death Note has a darker atmosphere, Code Geass has more action scenes.
Both have genious main characters who have huge plans for japan and some kind of special ability.
even though I'm not a fan of code geass at all, I still find them similar in nature. of a guy who inherits something dangerous and it doesn't turn out as they expected it to.
Both shows are awesome... light and lelouch have almost the same personality since their both smart and use their given powers to try to change the world.. thou I personally think light is a bit more `crazy`.. they both have like a double life and have enemies who they have bromance with... o.O
they both feature antiheros that have obtained a new and special power, and use it to further society and create a perfect and peaceful world
Both are the "Mastermind" type of anime. In both anime you will see multiple characters make incredible plans against one another. Its one of those anime in which you will be taken, step by step, through one character's great plan only to find out they are falling for their antagonist's plan the entire time! One big difference is that Code Geass contains great mech action where Death Note contains no action at all. I'd highly recommend both.
Both animes has this super smart main character, that is to smart for his own good. If you liked either one you would probably like the other too since they are a lot similar to each other.
Death Note presents very smart main character. Both characters depend on brain power. Death Note is much better anime than Code Geass on average. It is more serious and mature anime. The only down side is towards the end the story goes south.
both contain people who are able and willing to change the world using some sort of unique power.
yes death note was number one on my list until i watched Steins gate but getting back on topic you're going to love code geass. I know it because death note was #1 anime on my list for 3 years and I have to say Code geass is right there with death note
The main characters for both series focus more on plotting and winning conflicts through application of intellectual ability than the traditional 'smash it until it stops moving' approach in anime.
Both characters receive mysterious powers and both of them plan on using it to change the world
they both have there own motives and they will use everything to achive it code geass has more action with keeps you hooked and death note has the on the edge of your seat the whole time but over all there similar
Death Note and Code Geass are so incredibly simiar, yet completely and utterly different.
Both focus on an intelligent school boy who is given power beyond what he could be expected to be capable of handling out of the blue. Both are incredibly idealistic and wish to use their power for the greater good. Both have times where they're heroes and both have times where they seem pure evil.
Code Geass and Death Note have very different settings and, as the stories go on, very different plots. However, the feel, which is generally very serious and dark, and the ideas put forward are very similar in both shows.
Code Geass focuses on an alternate future where the British Empire is in control of a large portion of the world still and is based in Japan, where the natives have been oppressed. Death Note is set in (roughly) modern times in a very realistic, grounded world with a dark secret (the Shinigami's existance, along with the Death Note).
Overall, the shows have an incredible amount of content in common, while being completely distinct stories. Both are excellently written and very, very well directed and both can easily be considered masterpieces.
The main thing that you may wish to consider is that Code Geass starts (moderately) slowly and gets more and more intense as time passes, with an incredible open end. Death Note, however, starts off incredibly intense, but, later in the series (in many peoples opinions, including mine) tapers off to an extent, with a fairly unsatisfactory ending. Both, however, are absolutely worth a watch.
this is a chess type of anime, where main character is making moves and story unfolds. Both animes are quite different but they have similar story twists and mysteries. i highly recommend watching them both
Like Code Geass, Death Note is about a man who obtains a power and uses it to try and change the world while hiding their identities from their friends and family.
both animes are similar at main characters ,, they got power of leading , also two similar series when at first series both main characters are searching for power and in second series with hilarious ending.
Watching the descent of a truly good person into the evil they swore to fight. With psychological turns and twists that always keep you on the edge of your seat.
both series are good , the main charecter kind of similar , and great strategist , there planing is just awsome . you dont know what is going to happen next
Both have a mastermind with an awesome story and strategies. The main characters are awesome and the ideas are unique
Both have a power hungry MC. Both MC are very smart and have an (arguably) smarter "protagonist". MC is the villain in both. Plot twists. You know what these are pretty much the same anime with different art styling.
Both series feature similar characters trying to reach the same morals, each with ethically questionable means of obtain these goals. Both series focus on the protagonist trying to hide their identity from the public, fighting to improve the world.
These two anime have many features in common but, the one that stands out, is the way of thinking of both protagonists, who always seek to create unusual strategies, causing a huge impact to the viewer. For me, the main difference to Code Geass is that it have a much larger universe, relationships, problems and much more grandiose situations.
most people would realize this, but for the ones who haven't, there are quite a few similiarities with these shows, that it's actually terrifying.
It has similar taste to it as Death Note in the way you watch it and wonder: should you cheer on or wish horrible death to their main characters. Both are very inteligent and scheme in order to make the world better. Both use all methods possible for the greater good.
If you look for a strong and thoughtful characters, need thick plot filled with schemes and want to get lots of action - this should be your choice!
Both Code Geass and Death Note involve cat-and-mouse games between a protagonist with a special power and his opposing threats. Code Geass is more political and has more action, but both series share similar themes and tones.
The main characters are a bit similar in a feel. Both have a bit of an evil aura (especially Light )and they are both realy smart.
The animation for both of them is good and the sound track as well.
Both fight for thing they think are right. Both are protogantis and are awesome (Let's be real here :D)
And i enjoyed both of them.
Both are dark and twisted. Both keep you wanting and thinking what could they do next? Will they get away with it? Both are fantastic and have wonderful storylines.
Both will grab your attention instantly and you won't get bored with either one. It's why I keep going back to watch them over and over again.
I loved the complexity of the characters and the intricacy of the plot twists. The usage of the cliffhangers is outstanding!
Just two of the best animes ever, what else could I say? The concept of controlling others is something very similar in both series, though I think in code geass it goes further politically and philosophically.
They're both amazing anime! Both have many plot twists that keep your interested throughout the whole anime!
Main character gains an amazing power? Check
Main character is a complete genius? Check
Main character tries to create a better world? Another check for you
Amazing storylines that will keep you on the edge of your seat? Triple Check
Main character gets what's coming to him? Checkitty check check
Main character assumes an alias to keep his real identity secret? Checkers
These are just a few similarities of the two anime. They are both just mind blowingly awesome. Go see both of them or die in a hole.
I could go on and on about how similar light and lelouch are but to get to the point I will say that they are both tragic heros that set out to change the world but eventually they drifted into insanity.
Both series are very similar, in that they portray how easily power can destroy a person. Both shows deal with charactars that have to make difficult decisions to reach their end goal. Light in death note, first aspires to create a better world by killing off all the criminals, but this ambtion later turns into wanting to become a god. Lelouch doesn't change his goals as radically as Light, but he still becomes egotistical in himself, and suffers a variety of consequences as a result. The great about both shows is that they really do an excellent job of showing are easily humans are corrupted by power. I'd definitely recommend both series to everyone.
If you are hungry for more when seeing one the other is probably a most suitable choice towards your satisfaction. Both story plots are focusing on their main chracters each with an amazing skillset which includes intelligence, manipulation, admirable analytical abilities, risktaking, ruthlessness, a special power as well as how they use it to achive their goals.
Main differences are that Code Geass is in a future-like world while Death Note is in a present-like world, Death Note's Light is hugely self centered wanting to be a god while Code Geass's Lelouch is a bit more down to earth having mostly purest ideals (excluding the neverending quest for vengeance). Furthermore Light is much more willing to do anything to achive his goal not caring for anything or anyone which is not the case with Lelouch.
Code Geass is quite reminiscent of Death Note, where the main character is fighting on his own morals for a better world. Lelouch (Code Geass) and Light (Death Note) both achieve this by manipulating people with their power under an alias (Lelouch being Zero and Light being Kira) whilst trying to live a normal life as a student as well.
Both question the morality of humanity and what it costs to achieve justice. The main characters have a deranged sense of justice and are highly intelligent. They each use people as pawns as if they are playing chess. The shows keep you on the edge of your seat and have satisfying endings (although Code Geass has a better ending).
YES ITS REALLY GOOD .
Similar notes of deep strategy and suspense. watching things unfold is enjoyable release in both cases
Both have a main character that is trying to do the right thing but in a way that is seen as "bad" or "criminal" in the eyes of society.
Both were masterpieces uncomparable to any anime I've ever seen. Both were written incredibly well with captivating stories and characters that will move, shake, and rock you. These anime are what I use to judge other anime. In otherwords, these are my base line for an anime rating of 10/10.
They are both about a battle of intelligence and strategy. The course of the conflicts have an impact on a national/global basis.
They are both gritty, intensely moody and atmospheric stories about lonely people who have a hard time keep their emotions under control. Both protagonists are given awesome power to wield, and are trapped by destiny. If like things more on the grandiose scale, but focused on the individual, not the team, these will appeal to you.
Both of these series, as many people have already pointed out, revolve around very strong main characters. Light and Lelouch, are both extremely intelligent and forward-thinking people seeking their goals by any means. Both plotlines provide an outlook towards the characters personal life and drama as well as a strong global perspective and how their decision affect the whole world. If you liked either of these shows, the action and the plot twists, watch the other and you will see the similarities. Peace!
Both These shows are a classic.. the way the protagonists manipulate people is exemplary.. you'd like both these anime for the plot
Both of them are quite similar in many ways.Lelouch is a lot like light from death note in a evilish chaotic way, if you actually saw any one of them then you would understand what i mean, in their own way they are good people but then there is this chaotic good in them which is not so good but is also good.
Yes, these two anime pretty much revolve around a devious and intelligient protagonist that tries to manipulate others to do their wishes.
They are really good anime. They make you think what will happend in the next episode. You know what. Just watch them, thats all i can say.
Two smart-ass main characters with similar goals in kind, who come across a new-found power and use said power to acheive them. They aren't above killing people to do it either.
Both have a genious protagonaists who may have questionable decisions and achieve sudden power. Both are great thrillers
Both have an extremely intelligent protagonist who picks up an unusual but powerful ability. They have set goals and aren't afraid to use those abilities to achieve them.
they're both really similar but very different at the same time and i love them both. i'd say code geass has more interesting characters, but death note's much more of a mystery-type anime than code geass. code geass is straight-up fighting a lot of the time, whereas death note focuses more on the characters, badly written though they can be at times.
Similarities; Both main characters start out as teenagers who are granted a power. When they obtain this power they want to change the world no matter how extreme. are are criminal masterminds believing that the world needs to change, and they are willing to cut down anyone who gets in their way
Differences; The main character on Death Note is willing to fight to the end, while the main character on Code Geass is always ready to give up after every loss
Both anime basically combine power and intelligence, which both main characters have. The power to manipulate human life or receive them with single pen stroke? Fights turned on intellect, not only muscle strength? These are things that come without any problem for main characters of both titles.
If you're looking for a brilliant strategist, in the role of the main character which wraps his enemies around little finger, these are the titles just right for you.
Both anime deal with a boy who gains an ungodly power and use it for "evil" to try and create their ideal world with their insane amount of knowledge and strategy
Both have a smart and cunning protagonist with same aim of "cleansing the world"
Code Geass is a tad bit more focused on action which death note replaces with amazing shounen styled drama.
Other common points include:- Good Animation, Good OST, Good and Intresting Characters.
If you have seen code geass and absolutely love it there's no doubt you will love deathnote. Both MCs are normal high school students, until one day they recieve strange powers from inmortal strangers. Would both use thier powers for the greater good or would they use it for thier selfish greed? :) its up to you to find out!!
Both involve some kind of godly undying figure who can give out amazing powers and both are also aware that they are not the only ones with this kind of power finally both are high-school students given a godly power both of which are too smart for their own good finally resulting in their own undoing.
awesome story, both main charracters have wery good characterisation.. good graphics and i liked very much Ryuk
If you are looking for a strategic, evilminded (disguised as good intentions) protagonist, these both anime's fit the bill. I love to follow the story because it's exciting and it keeps you on your toes. It's also difficult to know who to vouch for since the main character tends to be almost too evil, close to psycho. I love both the shows as they twist the perception of good vs evil.
Same type of genius character but fighting as if it was a ches game. Very different stories with the comonality that they both have a great power and want to change the world.
It's awesome, they both have many similar qualities in the genre and it's just worth watching in general.
The main characters are very alike, they are both very intelligent and godlike. They are both very strong and interesting characters who have similar motives.
They both have the same type of storyline, the protaginist gets a new power and goes insane. In Death Note and Code Geass they trick people to do what they want with their newly aquired power, so it isn't very differenet.
Both animes are mind games, each having a kamidere (god complex) main character. They both have a supernatural element, even though in Code Geass mecha dominates. There are also strong second characters in both that you relate or despise.
The narcissistic character in the main characters turns the anime into a kind of battle between strategists.Intelligences faced to achieve each one its aims.
These series really do share some similarities, but each is interesting and unique in its own way. For now, I prefer Code Geass.
as it's an odd match up, in all honesty it's similar as well. we're faced with lead characters who have finally had enough of the "sheep" and they are "bored". one day they are faced with a choice, a life changer if you will. making the simple choice wasn't going to be an option, that would make for a dull anime. but, if you're interested in the underdog facing insanity, then facing even further insanity, then, feel free to check these two out.
Such a good plot Such a good plot Such a good plot Such a good plot Such a good plot Such a good plot Such a good plot Such a good plot
The same character feels and a similar want to take over the world in self-rightiousness. Pretty much the same things, just with shinigami (Death Gods.) instead of robots or visa versa.
Both of them wants to pretty much "cleanse" the world using their power given to them. *Spoiler*
they both die in the end
Both anime having great character build... Both will always be on top of my list. Lelouch and Light having ultimate greedyness even though their reasons to change the world are different(Nearly same may be) they are similar...
I recently killed this seasons and season 2 within a few days because i couldn't stop watching. The plot has numerous plot twists and it is my favorite anime still.
They are both action packed and absolutely worth watching. Code Geass is like another verson of Death Note but it is quite different in terms of the story line and the way it is set out.
Light Yagami from DN is a narcistic person who wanna change the world and be the rulership. He says he wants better world without crime. But still he is thinking just about himself.
Lelouch wants to change the wolrd too but he is more kind and more human tnat the main character from DN (Light).
Thats why I like them but DN is my most favorite anime and CG is the second one.
Both are story of young men who see flaws in the society they live in and try to correct them using supernatural means.
Both characters use their intelligence to do what they think is right although what they're doing is wrong '-' '-'
Both Anime series feature Protagonists who are very brilliant who obtain a special power which allows them to effect the whole World.
Throughout both animes, the plot focuses on the plans and schemes that these characters create to stay 1 step ahead in a psychological battle against their opponent. And the actions of both protagonists are morally questionable and can make you question what is really "right" and "wrong". Both shows strive to be thrillers rather than focus too much on the morality of the characters.
2 Great anime.Death Note is one of the most iconic and known anime of the last 20years.One of the most beautifoul of that theme, incredible story, good animation 8even for an "old anime), EPIC Music (soundtrack/ost) and amazing characters.It's a must see anime for new comers in this wolrd.Code geass is really the successor of Death Note, in my opinion not so good like the first but the characters are well designed and the story is really interesting.Almost same ideal for the 2 main character but with different shape of behaviour.
Both are classic psychological series with manipulative and strategic mcs who are for sure insane.
Both include genius main characters. Both include a cat and mouse chase with two rivals trying to outwit each other. Both involve with the supernatural in interesting way, and both are psychological anime that challenge your mind.
the plot is as strong as Death Note event the snimation is high quakity Inwould definately recommend Code Geass to anyone who has watched Death Note
They are really similar, and different. Both are my favourite anime's. Both are psychomanipulative, and that really boosts the viewers IQ and the ability to manipulate others. These two are the animes I'd recommend everyone to watch.
Both MCs are very evil and alike. They want a better future and work towards their goal in a dark way.
Non sissy hero.
Anime involving some masterplan.
Both are well made too.
Both main characters are masterminds with outstanding planning/deductive abilities.
This one goes without saying. Both series focus on super intelligent teenage guys. Both have a borderline god complex with a strong sense of justice. On top of that they are willing to sacrifice almost anything to achieve their goals.
These two could not be more different in execution but if you like characters with supernatural means to enforce their own form of justice, then yeah watch these slippery slopes. Plus Code Geass has giant robots.
Whilst very different animes code geass scratches the same itch death note does. If you want an anime where the protaga is could quiet easily be the antagonist then this is for you
Both anime follow highschool students with extraordinary intellect in their quest to change the world with the aid of some sort of supernatural power. Both main characters try to navigate thier own morals and ethichs (sometimes making questionable decisions and disregarding consequences) while trying to remain on the right side of good and evil, all in the name of justice. What is the price of reaching your goal and can they pay it?
If you like suspense, battle of wits and plot twists then try both of this series.
The main characters have a lot of things in common, they both have a godcomplex, are very intelligent and arrogant. The stories do also have some similarities, if you like one you would most likely like the other!
Both animes have super smart protanists, who are trying to improve the world. They both are willing to kill othrs and break rules to make the world a better place.
The Animes are both very interesting and you need to use your brain while watching.
They're both amazing and have great drama, suspense, and story elements. The main characters are very similar. They each hide their true intentions and constantly try to outsmart other characters.
Death Note and Code Geass starts out with two teenagers who wanted the world to be a better place. However, in order to achieve the "better" world, they committed morally questionable actions.
The two protagonists have issues with pride. Light Yagami has god complex, while Lelouch vi Britannia is pretty destructive as a person due to his pride. They are also popular in school, because they are handsome and they have good grades. Light and Lelouch are very popular around the girls.
The two protagonists are also equipped with Supernatural Powers and they have Supernatural Companions. E.g Light Yagami has Ryuk, Lelouch vi Britannia has C.C.
And they also have rivals, who are also morally questionable that happens to attend the same school as they do for "Investigation" E.g Suzaku Kururugi and L Lawliet.
THE UN PREDICTABLE EVER THE UN PREDICTABLE EVER THE UN PREDICTABLE EVER THE UN PREDICTABLE EVER THE UN PREDICTABLE EVER THE UN PREDICTABLE EVER THE UN PREDICTABLE EVER
Both series have gradually corrupting, controversial main characters with supernatural powers.
Both shows have a similar thriller-esque concept, and incredibly overpowered main characters. I prefer Death Note over Code Geass, but they are both amazing shows.
I find that the complex wits of the characters are similar. How they tried to accomplish their goal are morally questionable in a similar way. I really enjoy to see their wits all throughout the story, hard to stop watching until the end.
They're both intellectually engaging, but not exactly an apples to apples comparison. Code Geass also has a fair number of action scenes, while Death Note is mostly bereft of these scenes and moves a tad slower. Both will reward you if you stick with them long enough, and I consider each to be a classic.
Code geass and death note are similar in so many ways. But first might be about the MC. Lelouch and light are both smarter than average, they both have a sense of justice that will happen to be proven once they receive the power they always wanted/needed to change the world, and ofc they're not too idealist to ignore that they will have to get their hands dirty for their dream's sake. there's also a similarity between the entity from whom they receive their power. C.C and Riyuk are both immortal, and accompanies the protagonists only for their personal objective. Ryuk only eats Apples and C.C has always been shown eating Pizza lol. they've a lot in common that's why i think once one watch Code geass/Death note and likes it; that person will undoubtely likes the other one
Each of the main charecters of these seris think and plan ahead, which leads to thier charecters being somewhat similar in thier sense of preperation.
Both anime follow a main male protagonist that is very intelligent and strategic. Both accidentally gain an unknown power that gives them great power, and gives them a god complex. They both are corrupted by power and struggle to maintain the moral high ground as they work to achieve their mission or new world order. Both shows are psychological and have dark moments in the show.
In both anime the super intelligent MC gets a power he can use to achieve his goals, even though that means breaking the law and becoming enemys of the police.
The MCs have very different personalities, but they are both fun to watch.
If you like Death Note I'm pretty sure you would like Code Geass. Code Geass and Death Note have the same concept of where the main character is trying to help change the world and they have a new power in Death Note which is the Death Note and Code Geass which is the Geass, in both of these shows these powers help them to victory.
They both have main characters with megalomaniac tendencies. The main difference is that Code Geass shows field and intellectual batlles while Death Note is mainly about the second one. All in all, they both are really engaging.
I mean, they are the real CLASSICS. Don't miss the chance, you're reading this after all, it may be a sign (;
Both of these shows have killing and a main character fighting for or against his morales. These two are also of the same genre and type so if you like one, you'll like both.
In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.
They both center around rebellion, mecha and lots and lots of explosions, have loveable characters and epic music.
If you like one you're bound to like the other.
Im basing this on the first episode of Guilty Crown, which was nearly identical to the first episde of code geass:
Boy meets mysterious girl. Girl gives mysterious crazy superpower. Boy owns.
Both series also center around a rebellion, and both are futuristic (in that they have mechas). They both also have a fairly dark feel to them as well, though Code Geass (so far) slightly less so.
Guilty crown takes after Code Geass so much, the plot is similar, the nightmares/crafts are identitcal, the first episode as well. The style is dark and rebelly. I like the style GC more, but Code Geass si older and so mure original
Code Geass and Guilty Crown are similar on many different levels. first off total domination of the ruling government, and a group fighting against said superpower. A person reciving a strange power, while slowly figuring out the 'specs' for them. the use of mechs, and their looks. Lastly the way the episode's cliffhangers leave off are the same style entirely, just leaving you wondering how the character will worm his way out of his current prediciment.
What sets them apart is, in Code Geass, the protaganist is out for revenge and is all too eager to jump on the chance to kill his nemises. While in Guilty Crown, the protaganist is dragged unwillingly into a fight he could care less about.
If you enjoyed one you should give the other a shot.
Postmodern world setting with mechs, check. Japan subjugated to outside rule, check. Organized rebellion against established authority, check. Mysterious girl gives boy supernatural "Power of Kings," check. Boy joins rebellion, check.These anime have such highly similar plot elements. If you enjoyed one, please give the other a try.
The Only Differences between Code Geass and Guilty Crown are:
Guilty Crown: You've been given the Power of the Kings. You can now do by your lone self what a thousand men could never hope to accomplish. Also, here's your hot magic girl.
Shuu: Ah, um, ow... *sob* I miss my boring, ordinary life.
Code Geass: You've been given the Power of the Kings. You can now do by your lone self what a thousand men could never hope to accomplish. Also, here's your hot magic girl.
Lelouch: Oh? Then please bear with me as I CONQUER THE WORLD. All those who wronged me, yes, they shall pay.
Whatching guilty crown just made me think about code geass. There are sertain similaities, but the main part for me was the feel of the series, and they much align. One thing though, Lelouch is, in all ways, awesome. The main at guilty cross is not so much, but I see room for more character developement, and he's starting to show that he can when he wants to.
Well, I saw TONS of similarities in Code Geass and Guilty Crown. Like, all the characters were basically the same (although I must say I personally like Guilty Crown's design more...). It's like rewatching Code Geass with a somewhat different plot! =) Not saying that's a good or bad thing cuz that's up to you but I'll name a few other similarities.
They're both set in the near future. There's mecha. A girl appears and a boy is given a superpower and he just becomes badass. (although I personally think Shu is more "realistic" in his character development) There are a few suggestive scenes. (not many though~) They're both about rebellions and you mainly see things from the rebellions' point of view.
I also personally think Code Geass is WAAAY more complex than Guilty Crown (which is somewhat predictable sometimes...), but if you couldn't get enough of Code Geass, watching Guilty Crown just might subdue that urge for a bit of time. =)
Wish you a Happy Watching! ^-^
The similarities between Code Geass and Guilty Crown are astounding...and annoying.
Both revolve around a terrorist group of some kind. The only MAJOR differences between the groups are the roles of the main characters. The Black Nights have the protagonist, Lelouch/Zero, as their leader while The Funeral Parlor has Gai, a secondary character, as the leader of their terrorist group. Shu is just an important asset to The Funeral Parlor.
Basically, Lelouch is a crazy BA terrortist and Shu is a wimpy kid that got love struck.
Another "coincidental” similarity is that they both happen to meet beautiful, mysterious girls that happen to grant them a power in a secluded area. The power in Guilty Crown that belongs to Shu is called The Void Genome and the mark on Shu's right hand happens to be called The King's Mark. In Code Geass, Lelouch obtain the power called Geass, which is also known as The Power of the King.
If you listen closely, you'll also notice that C.C and Inori have the same tone of voice.
There are a couple of other character similarities between some of their minor characters. Rivalz is somewhat similar to Souta and Shirley is somewhat similar to Hare. Well, at least to me they are. Whatever, they are both loveable characters. Putting aside the similarities, I actually enjoyed this anime because of some of its similarities to Code Geass. It's just that sometimes, it gets to be too much. If you enjoyed Code Geass, then you'll most likely watch this. It has pretty girls, some super powers, it's filled with action, and awesome mecha.
after watching episode 17 of guilty crown i got the same feeling that i have been searching in anime ever since i watched code geass. hard to explain but the dark twists and the plot and such just give me the same feelings
Both Code Geass and Guilty Crown have similar elements in their shows, but their main characters couldn't be more different. While Lelouch is a cold and calculating person struggling with emotion at times, Shu, in Guilty Crown, is overcome with emotion at points desiring to be more calculating and charismatic.
Sure, both shows have some sort of robots, powers, and stories of Japan struggling from external powers. Yet, each are their own unique story. Both are due their respect- if you like one, I suspect you will enjoy the other.
Both have the mecha genre, and also have lots of suspense that keeps you guessing and wanting more. Also keeps you desperately cheering for the characters to succeed.
In many ways these two animes are dot-on similar. While Shu doesn't grow nearly as diabolical as Lelouch until the end of the series, in both animes you'll find the same futuristic themed action and loveable characters.
Both animes have great soundtracks as well.
in both anime a normal school kid found itself in an unfortunate situation where they acquire new powers, but thos powers can also be misused. in code geass the kid is more involve into the military whereas in guilty crown it is more about a disease and the resurrection of a fearsome enemy.
Both shows are political where an individual meets a girl and ends up with a power to affect the world they live in. Each of the two have mecha that play a part, but are not the focus of the show.
They definitely have the same feel as each other, especially the way in which they both manage to balance the mix of despair and hope together in a post apocalyptic type scene is first-class. I think its how the main characters in both stories' struggle to do what they percieve is right despite being misunderstood by theire friends/ allies in the process is what gives them the edge on most anime of similar genres.
They Both revolve around the central character and his struggles with his new-found power, also they are both set in the future with awesome mecha =D
They are not only made by same people and very simillar in every possible way (except that main protagonist of guilty crown is a loser while protagonist of code geass is a fine smart guy)
also, have you noticed that guilty crown acronym GC is code geass acronym CG backwards?
Both deal about the same topic for example rebellion and the first episode is also quite similar to each other.
So if you liked one of those it's quite impossible that you dislike the other one.
Main character is a Japanese student who accidentaly gets involved with something and ends up getting a mystical power to change the world with.
Both deal a lot with what is right or wrong and what means are justified to achieve your goals. They're also very critical of the government and to some extent of society.
Code Geass focuses more on strategy. Main character is a self-confident mastermind that uses much psychology and strategy to get what he wants. Also it contains mecha's as an important component where Guilty Crown has them but are much less important to the storyline and action.
Guilty Crown has a great way of using the visuals to persuade of more emotion. The majority of the series has a positive vibe to this and combined with the great opening video is very enjoyable in that. Code Geass is a lot more persistently dark in this area.
Both animes feature rebellions and mechs. Also both animes have the main character meet a mysterious girl who gives them a mysterious power that changes their lives and the fate of the world
Both have stories that are more difficult than most to guess. There is a nice amount of romance in both though Guilty Crown centers around it more than Code Geass does. The main characters of each end up being very alike though they come from different backgrounds and start out as opposites (one is happy for the power while the other is scared of it).
Central character with good intentions. Check
Central character utilizes bizarre power to accomplish goal. Check
Central character falls prey to power. Check
Both are tragedies and surround one main guy wanting to protect those close to his heart. Both Lelouch and Shu were given a power which allowed them to reign over the rest and the internal conflicts they have within themselves make them seem alot more human than the evil persona they present to others.
Both Code Geass and Guilty Crown were similar animes in the sense that they had a futuristic theme (mecha), a story centered on rebellion, and a main male character that was given powers by a mysterious girl.
I like Code Geass more than Guilty Crown, but still, both of them are great animes!
On its own, Guilty Crown is its own anime up to the twelfth episode. Afterwards, the similarlities between the animes become considerably more prominant. From this, in hindsight, it is almost a direct parallel to the Code Geass series until the ending.
The main differences lie in the main characters: Code Geass has a smart and rather cunning protagonist, but on other side of the looking glass, Guilty Crown has a slightly introverted and emotive protagonist. Given the difference of situation in the story line, and the plot grows from there. Consequently, Code Geass focused on more strategical-twists compared to the more emotive-twists in Guilty Crown.
They are both good and contain elements of each other. However, Guilty crown is more tighly woven and emotional than Code Geass which is more encompassing and quick-tactics. Depending on your preference depends on which may be more enjoyable.
I would recommend these together as they are an interesting contrast between similar but perfectly unique animes!
Both animes have a mecha element to it, more so in Code Geass than Guilty Crown. Both also tell a great story, about an every day kid becoming one person who can change the world. Finaly, both of the main characters get some sort of superpower.
Lelouch and Shuu both are high school students who take control of the characters around them, and therefore feel the burden of their lives on their hands. Both strive to make the world a better place through questionable means. Both anime are full of action, drama, and emotion.
If you like one you'll like the other. It is not the same story but they share the same distressfull feelings of "who is right? both have their reasons, both fight for the same basic ideas of humanity both with so many flawed means" a beautiful story with a stupid song in the middle.
Both Code Geass and Guilty Crown. Want world domination from a resistance group in sense. And both of the main characters are students that find a mysteries girls that gives them a power to overcome the will of others. Also both of the high schools that they go to turn into a headquarters for there cause at one point in another in these animes
Both are amazing animes, would recommened either one in a heart beat. These are some great animes that I really enjoy.
Both shows share screenwriters and share a lot of plot elements (at least initially). In both Japan gets invaded by those bad bad gaijin who rename it to some numbered area or ward. In both main character runs into some mysterious girl who grants him (one way or another) an odd superpower. Afterwards he joins rebels fighting ageinst those invaders. If you've seen one you can expect to see similar plot twist in the other, except in Guilty Crown those are cranked up to eleven and dosed with thick Neon Genesis Evangelion concentrate. Despite all those similarities, there is still a fair chance that you might dislike one if you liked the other, so don't blame me if it ends up being not to your liking.
True that it is a good series but the reality is that it was made by one of the original creators of Code Geass and uses deadly similar ideas throughout the plot
The main concept is a lot of the same. Japan has been "taken over" or is controlled by others and a revolution rise
Similar setting, similar struggle, and almost exactly the same turn around of the main character from protagonist to antagonist to secretly and then not so secretly protagonist again. Very well developped plots in both that make you feel like that is exactly what would happen in those kinds of situations to real people.
I WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND THIS ANIME BECAUSE I THINK BOTH HAVE THE SAME KIND OF PLOT YOU SEE BOTH ANIME HAVE MANE CHARACTER WITH SUDDEN SUPER POWER GRANTED AND BOTH HAVE SOME HISTORY WITH THE HERIONE AND BOTH RELAY ON OTHER FOR POWER NON OF THEM CAN USE HIS POWER WITHOUT SOMEONE AND IN BOTH HERIONE IS THE ONE WHO CAUSES THE POWER TO APPEAR SO I RECOMMEND BOTH FOR EACH OTHER PERFECT MATCH
Boy saves girl, girl gives boy really powerful bio weapon. Boy immediately joins the terrorists trying to liberate Japan. While there is a bit more political intrigue and less whining in Code Geass, these two anime are very similar in design. Especially once the mechas roll out. If you like one, check out the other.
Both have the inteligent / Strategic / wants to take over the world kind of character. Both protagonists also have a power that enables them to take action and both are fighting against repressive forces.
Same narrative of a young hero who gain the ability to take over people's heart and set a new world order.
I like this anime because I relate to the main character because he doesn’t like to be close to people like me so this is why I like this anime
These are both quality anime worth watching.Code Geass is my favorite anime next to Death Note.Guilty Crown is in my top 10.
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.
Military drama with mystery and high-caliber production values. Gundam 00 replaced Code Geass after its run was over. They are both from SUNRISE. If you like Gundam 00 then you will probably enjoy CODE GEASS and vice versa.
Both are alike in that they have intricate political conflicts, mecha action and deep characters that will bring out great feelings of hate or love.
Flashy animation, mecha fest with plenty of action packed sequences, political intrigue galore: Gundam 00 and Code Geass in a nutshell. Both titles focus on the efforts of the leads to change the world in one way or another, these efforts having quite drastic consequences along the way. Gundam 00 follow a group of characters and takes place in space as well as on Earth while Code Geass has a clear main character and takes nationalistic desires as the primary plot device, fans of one are likely to enjoy the other.
Gundam 00 sets in a real universe, just like Code Geass, it is a real robot anime. Both are stress in people's relationship and character design, if you like to see beautiful characters, this is the best choice for you.
These anime share the theme of trying to achieve a morally good goal through means which are not so clear cut. There are also instances in both Gundam 00 and Code Geass where a major character makes a decision motivated by selfish personal feelings which has unintended consequences on innocent people. And, of course, the Mecha battles are always a plus. Basically, if you liked the themes in one of these anime, you'll like the other.
Both are thought-provoking animes that step out of the ordinary mecha stereotype. Both show off intense mecha battles (more strategy involved in Code Geass) and high-production value. Mecha fans will be deeply satisfied with either.
If you liked Code Geass or Mobile Suit Gundam 00, then you'd like the other because they both have the main characters fighting to bring about a world of peace even if it is at the cost war. Tho in Code Geass the main character seems to be evil for using his powers differently, you could say the main character in mobile suit gundam 00 is evil for using his power to provoke violence. So in other words both main characters are good and bad in different aspects.
Both shows center around mech based battles that serve to shift the world in profound ways through poltical means. Both main characters are part of "terrorist" organizations that attempt to change the world for better abeit using morally questionable means.
Both anime have mecha elements with mobile suits. What uniqely connects the two is the strategical aspect both possess. Further more they also deal with political affairs, that concern the future of humanity. In order to make sure the destinies they choose lead to prosperity for the whole world.
While on two different wave lengths, both parties are fighting for freedom. The emotional highs and lows and tears and sometimes silliness make an addiction worth recording. Surprises and twists throughout and of course both involve the use of Gundams. Great comparing ém.
juz love it!!! their works on mecha is amazing. their character also great.... storyline also great... tiptop
Both have the main characters going after an idea of the irradication of war and the common goal of world peace. Mecha battles are great in both and both have many twists in the story line so if you like one, youll definitly like the other. Both will keep you watching episode after episode!! Both of these animes are great!!! Watch both if you can! :)
Both Code Geass and Gundam 00 are very much about the moral grey areas of society and it's rules. Both series focus on a small number of people trying to change the world for the better and using similar methods to do it. Both involve more than just mecha. The styles of the anime are similar, both plot wise and technically. If you enjoyed one, the other is most defiantly worth a try.
Seekers of giant robot porn look no further. These politically charged war epics will have you on the edge of your seat in anticipation.
Very similar, made by the same producers the anime. Mecha, very involved. Antiheros, World fights, lotta action. yeah...
Both are similar in soo many ways from the strategy t the mecha to the complex characters and intriguing story plot
Both animes feature rebellion and mechs, however Code Geass has more plot twists while Gundam 00 is centered around mechs more
These two animes contain brilliant mecha action, as well as a story about war. The plot and ideas behind these two anime are completely different, but both are intriguing.
Both are mecha shows with a lot of focus on terrorism and warfare.
They both deal with themes of morality, to a similarly cynical level.
Fans of one should check out the other.
The art work, the ammount of time and dedication it took for the character development was breath taking, every little sceen had its significant moments in both generes, I wouldnt chose one over the other. If you have not seen these animes you must, it is arguably these best animes out to date IN my opinion of course. Feel free to let me know what you think!
Fifteen years have passed since the hypergate collapsed on the moon's surface - a catastrophe known as the Heaven's Fall. The war between Earth and the VERS Empire of Mars is now in a cease-fire. The VERS' Princess Asseylum Vers Allusia descends upon Earth as an ambassador hoping to encourage reconciliation while some citizens are not willing to compromise. Inaho Kaizuka, a Terran high school student... and Slaine Troyard, who swears his allegiance to Princess Assylum... Their fates cross as both societies watch in horror as a missile crashes on Asseylum's motorcade. This incident marks the beginning of a new war.
Both are centered around the conflict of two races, the Terrans/Elevens and the Martians/Britannians. Both anime have Mechs, with the Martians/Britannians having more specialised mechs and the Terrans/Elevens having regular millitary mechs.
The MCs are both highschool students who are calm, collected and think rationally instead of emotionally. Slaine and Suzaku share the same similarities as they are on the enemy's side even though their originis are that of the opposite side.
Both main characters are somewhat similar (smart). Both are mecha-anime with a world-war as main plot. I think if you liked aldnoah zero you will most likely like code geass, mabye not the other way around though.
If you like going beyond simple mecha action, then these animes are for you. Its not simply fighting mechas, but a battle of intellect as well. Deeper tactical and stratigical combat and warfare. If you like one you will most likely like the other
Have to think in the show!
If you've liked Code Geass and animes with similar theme, well, I'm also sure that you would grow to love Aldnoah Zero too. Just like Code Geass, Aldnoah Zero also have action, romance and a bit of drama. But be prepare for plot twists :>
They're both Mecha... but Code Geass is by far the better show. So don't be too disappointed. On the other hand, Aldnoah zero is entertaining and does feature the same rebellion versus the empire theme as CG.
Both Code Geass and Aldnoah.Zero have phenominal plots with many twists that you won't see coming. I won't get too much into details but there are many similarities, especially that both are originially anime, not based on a manga or light novel.
Both anime revolve around political conflicts and characters who want to create peace. In Aldnoah the Vers Empire fight to maintain their sovereignty and to gain the resources they need to keep this sovereignty. In Code Geass, Japan fights in order to reclaim the sovereignty they lost to the Britannian Empire. Lelouch is similar to both Asseylum and Inaho in from Aldnoah Zero in a few ways. Lelouch wants peace like Asseylum and is selfless in his attempts to gain it, however he is calculating like Inaho. If you liked the politics in either show, or just like stories about conflict resolution, then you should like both anime.
Both of these series have mech battles and the process of war and warfare through the whole show. Plus they both have the same outcome in the end. I won't say anymore about that because of spoilers but they are very simliar. Plus both of the main guys have speical things with their eyes. Also both shows are sci-fi afterall that has to mean something.
So it's actually hard to justify this link other than by the fact that both has mecha tech xD The art in Aldnoah Zero is incredible though and the plot is fine (nothing as exciting, in my opinion, to Code Geass)...
Both of these anime involve the subjegation of one race by another, and the uprising of the subjegated against the more heavily armed opressors. With the addition of mechs, political intrigue, and an analytical main character and a princess willing to work for peace, both of these anime are quite similar. If you like one, check out the other.
I absolutely loved aldonah and was missing it quite lot but when i watched code geass it had all the elements that is needed to become a masterpiece ,i love both of them and there both worth watching
both are mech in nature, similar as well. a boy, blinded by what he thinks is right, is quickly shown the true evils which reside behind the curtain and it's not even a remotely pretty sight. which, in turn, shatters the boy and forces him to see the true horrors. so, if you're into mech and the lead character being faced with intense drama and loss of themselves, then check these two out.
Both are interesting psycological thrillers with mecha and political intrigues. Beautiful soundtrack and dynamic plot make both of them worth a watch.
Both share a cute, teenaged, male character that wield a power having to do with their retina. Both have interesting twist endings.
Both are a must watch if you like cool 'course-changing' plots. The similarities lie in the main characters and their code of action. I feel that Code Geass has a much more dramatic ending than the latter.
Both have generally smart characters that don't act 'stupid' randomly.
Both have 'course-changing plots' that are actually compelling and worth witnessing.
Both are a bit open ended and have rooms for sequels.
- Two antagonist characters from distinct sides, but neither are said to be the vilain or the good boi, both are kinda ambivalent
- Geopolotical war in a futuristic universe with Mechas being the main weapons
- Tense and serious atmosphere, with psychological aspects
They both have a calm, cool, and collected main characters that undergo great amounts of stress, including but not entirely mental battles, strategy, physical confrontations, and out-of-your-hands governmental/authority control, while simultaneously keeping one step ahead of the perceived enemy the whole way at great personal risk. However, the animation and personal motivation of and involvement of the characters within their respective world problems are quite different, so if you prefer a sideline hero caught in the limelight while they keep the target of the enemy fire safe while changing the world in the process keep with Aldnoah.Zero, but if you think watching a character who is personally entangled, commanding, and is the center of fire to which is primary plan is to overtake/change/destroy the worldview then you are looking at the right kind of stuff here.
The universe of the future is divided between the Earth Alliance and ZAFT. After a year of war, ZAFT attacks the neutral colony Heliopolis to steal five prototype mobile suits. The mission is a success, but a young man named Kira stumbles upon the fifth Gundam, and he may be the Alliance's only hope...
Both are excellent political sci-fi mecha series. They also have similar colour-schemes e.g. pink-haired princesses, bright uniforms, colourful chunky mecha. But with the superficial aspects aside, the strong themes of injustice, superiority of one nation/race in relation to another, and the paradoxes and pains of freedom fighting make these anime virtually siblings. I would say Code Geass handles the complex issues e.g. 'when does freedom fighting end and revenge begin' with slightly more intelligence. This is shown particularly in the differences between the protagonists: Lelouch (CG) is a far more complicated character than Kira (GS). But overall, I would say at least in the beginning, one will remind you very much of the other.
Beyond simply featuring mecha, both shows address many similar themes, such as racism and the value of human life versus strategic gain. The motivations of the main characters are also largely similar-- they fight largely in order to protect those that they care about, though their means and approach do differ.
If you enjoyed the political clashes in Code Geass you will enjoy the complex political background in Gundam Seed. Apart from both shows featuring mecha they both have two friends as main heroes, who, due to political circumstances, become rivals and are faced against each other to protect those for whom they care about or their beliefs. If you liked the mecha design and battles of Code Geass I believe that you will like those in Gundam Seed. Gundam Seed has more battles and features equally stunning mecha design, although the animation is of lesser quality in comparison to that of Code Geass; still, it maintains high standards.
Both Code Geass and Gundam Seed are mecha anime based around two protagonists who are best friends on opposite sides of a war. Kira and Lelouch are both traitors to their own kind, and both conflicts are of the nature that the two sides are neither entirely good nor entirely evil. Although Seed is more action-oriented and Geass has more of a philosophical side to it, if you liked the base concept of either of these you should enjoy the other as well.
Besides the obvious similarity in the use of giant robots, both Geass and Gundam SEED place these epic battles between titanic machines against a political and moral background. The greatest similarity lies in the parallels between Lelouch and Suzaku's relationship and Kira and Athrun's.
If you enjoy watching two best friends placed on opposing sides in a war, then this is a series for you.
Both revolve around a war, in which two best friends are pitted against each other. Throughout the two series, questions of morality and war are explored.
In Gundam Seed and Code Geass there is a very indefinite line between good and evil. Which side on this war is right? The two main men of each series are friends from school, but enemies on the GIANT ROBOT battlefield. If you liked these uncertainties in this anime, you should absolutely watch the other.
Reccomended for fans of Giant Mecha!! Who doesn't love angsty (and somewhat insane) teenage boys fighting battles of political and physical heights?! These anime are not only about fast paced head to head mecha battles and saving the world; they're also about the drama within teen life!! If you like one, you're sure to like the other.
Both Gundam SEED and Code Geass use the mecha theme to create the main fighting scenes, but of course Gundam takes place mostly in space while Code Geass is on Earth.
If you like Gundam SEED, chances are you'll like Code Geass too, or vice-versa. Both take on a military-like tone, and also go into detail about military strategy, making it easy to get into. The main difference is the primary characters in respect that none of the characters in Gundam SEED have "supernatural" powers.
It's a great anime to watch, especially for all the mecha fans out there :)
I would recommend Mobile Suit Gundam Seed and Gode Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion because both Animes contain the same style of fight scenes, warfare and awesome Sci-fi robot fights.
my thoughts of This anime are that i think it was awesome. If you like Code Geass with the those Knightmares then watch Gundam Seed as it is based on those yet they are called Gundam seed mobile suits. Aswell the geass that Lelouch held is like the Death Note from the anime Death Note. The Death Note is a little notebook which you altar people's lives in. EX: Write down (Name) (Date of death) and when. Which I thought was pretty awesome! Fullmetal Alchemist gave me a feeling that i thought was the same as this and that it as well is a great anime.
has a great story and always keeps you wandering what will happen next. has just the right amount of action to keep you wanting more.
Beyond that both animes are a Mecha share many similarities in its history.
Two friends faced each other on two different sides during a war.
Mechas as a resolving tool for confrontation.
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
Both are a battle of witts, courage, and determination to reach there goals. No matter what the cost, except for the lives of there friends.
Both shows show the strong sibling relations and how main protagonists fight for their brother's / sister's sake. Both have conspiracy involved
Both Ed and Lelouch have a strong sibling relationship in which they will do anything for their brother/sister's sake. They battle through many opposing forces such as the military, unjust people, and sometimes even the people close to them.
In both Fullmetal Alchemist and Code Geass, politics and the shifting of power between people and governements are paramount to the storyline. Coldness and strategy meet passion and love in a believable scenery. I recommend both.
There's a lot of similarities to be found in Code Geass and Fullmetal Alchemist when it comes to the strong feeling of brotherhood shared between the main characters.
They also have to deal with the strong military forces present in their world, the Britannian Empire in Code Geass and the State Military in Fullmetal.
Both Fullmetal Alchemist and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion start with a protagonist who wants to use his powers to change something in his world, and both continue as the young man's journey takes him to ever-darker places. If you enjoy shows that examine the real consequences of one's actions, then try either of these on for size.
Code Geass and Fullmetal Alchemist involve a power struggle between the people and the government that is shifting. The whole entire back drop of each series revolves around politics and the family connections the main characters have.
I recommend Fullmetal Alchemist with Code Geass because there's sometimes a battle of life and death in both and they have a lot in common.
Both of these anime involve the protagonist working to attain some goal that might cost him everything. Both anime laugh in the face of conventional physics, bring along a cast of interesting characters, and involve secret government plots. Both anime also have fairly large worlds for the protagonist to roam.
One of my 2 most favorite anime. If you haven't watched it you cannot be called an Otaku. It is fun, it is romantic it is painfull and full of anger, distuctive and creative in feelings, passionate and heroic. It has every day people that are unique for their unacking happiness in the darkness of it all, it has heroes with embarrassing moments or habbits. It has soft harted people that need to hold themselves together for the sake of the team. It is feelings that we all have in an allegory of sins and monstrosities. I promise it will be a journey to remember!
Both of the main characters are huge strageist and are beyond that of there peers in different subjects. Kids trying to overcome the bad things that happened in there past. they fight for what they believe by any means necassary
They are both well-written shows with several interesting characters with a long and always interesting storyline featuring genocide, dictatorships, armed conflict and politics. Both main characters are forced to rebel at some point against the established political power. They are quite different nonetheless, but that's to be expected since there is no anime quite like Code Geass (don't even start with that cheap Guilty Crown recommendation). FMA is also unique despite it being more easily compared with several others.
Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race - will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?
The story line in both anime has some similarity but in special they both have mechanical action or better sayed they have Mobile Suits action,balance between drama and comedy is perfect equal, If you liked action,drama comedy in this one , you\'d surely like the other.
Both animes are about a seemingly hopeless fight between the rebeliants and a powerfull enemy who rules the country. Either in CG or Gurren-Lagann we can watch the moves of a great lider, who is the only one keeping the rebel in a row. Although they have many similaritis ther are also very different what prevent you from feeling bored and saying "I've already seen it...".
I thought a little on this one ( it was pretty obvious though I didn't notice). They both have rebelions fighting in robots against a goverment that has ruled for a while. The difference in the goverments though are one is made of monsters.
These 2 titles share the drama that goes along with war. Lives are lost and sacrifices are made. Both Simon and Lelouch carry the burden of starting and finishing a rebellion in the midst of a tyrannical empire. Although the main antagonists' reasons for fighting are completely different, the progression of the story for each anime is quite similar.
Obviously, both series are similar in that they involve mechas. In the first half of TTGL, the similarities between the two series are reletively subtle. However, the second half shows extreme similarities, particularly regarding turmoil in leadership, partnership, and politics. Both series are a ridiculously good watch and I really think that if you like one, you'll like the other.
On one hand, you have a series that thrives on coolness, pure badassery and more coolness with some ham and a whole lot of absurdity. That's Gurren Lagann. On the other hand, you have Code Geass. Not just coolness, but ham as well and cheese. Lots of cheese. Which in turn leads to absurdity. How they mix seriousness with such bouts of comedy (Intentional and unintentional) is what makes them fun to watch and liken to each other.
From massively planned out plans of such cunning to the point it's mind-boggling to tactics that simplify to attack and attack some more, they are different and yet similiar. They both have style and flair in what they do and a plot that's about a group of rebels/humans who vie for a better world for them and those around them by fighting against an empire whose power outclass their own by far. And mecha, which only goes to further show the absurdity of it all.
Seekers of giant robot porn look no further. While both are epic sci-fi sagas, Code Geass has a political bent while Gerrun Lagann is all about massive carnage.
While the plotlines may seem very different, Gurren Lagann and Code Geass have very similar themes. Both of them revolve around battles against a bigger power. Both protagonists hope for change. Simon and Lelouch are alike in the way that they desire to fight to bring peace. Both animes contain action-packed battles that focus more on just the fighting and center as well on the characters themselves. Speaking of characters, there is a lot of development in both animes and the characters are down to earth and relatable. Both Gurren Lagann and Code Geass leave you breathless with amazing music and beautifully crafted storylines. Both of them are definitely worth a watch.
Fight the power! is probably a good tag-line for both of these anime. Young rebels take on the current regime with their ever-evolving mechas. Both protagonists have a faithful group of sidekicks, some rather ruthless antagonists, and a story-line that is more about freedom than romance.
Both have great impact on audience, are superior to other animes and the main character will make you shed manly tears.
Both of these animes have so many twist and turns that when you thought you had it figured out, another scenario comes into play, and when you though you have that scenario figured out, another scenario would play. Undoubtedly they are both extremely well written and though out animes, and if you are looking for a mind blowing and unexpected experience, one that keeps your blood pumping for excitement, and the eagerness to find out what will occur in the upcoming episode, than this is the route to go with.
Teito Klein is a former slave who attends the Barsburg Empire's military academy. Having no memory of his past and the power to wield a rare ability called Zaiphon, Teito is constantly under the scrutiny of his peers - except for his best friend Mikage, the only person he connects with. After seeing and remembering the man who killed his father, Teito tries to kill him and finds himself on the run from Barsburg's military might. Now, with the evil beings known as Kor after his soul, the Barsburg Empire after his blood and only the legendary Seven Ghosts to protect him, Teito must unlock the memories of his past before he ends up as a sacrifice for Verloren, the sealed God of Death.
Ok, as yet there are no Mecha in 07-Ghost... nor, I think (at the time of posting), are there likely to be. That is, if Studio Deen aren't in the business of ruining plots.
So, now we've got that out of the way: I'd still recommend Code Geass to viewers who enjoyed/are enjoying 07-Ghost, and vice versa. As for the paralells between the two series... where does one begin?!
Both series have a powerful, heavily military-focussed "Empire" (Barsburg or Brittanian), trying to take over the world. Both have rampant imperialism, loyal-to-the-death soldiers, and so on, and this is a major theme. Additionally, both empires are portayed in a somewhat good light in the first episode, although this quickly changes- our protagonists fight the oppression, if in slightly different ways.
But other than the similarities between the content of the two series, I'd also recommend them based on the cliffhanger-type nature of the ending of each episode, and...
I'm trying to find a word for the general feel of them. It's not quite "feel-good", that would be wrong. But both anime certainly have their high points, their Crowning Moments of Awesome, and their heartfelt blows to the main characters when it all goes wrong. There's a real sense of empathy there, and above all, that's why I think you should watch this anime.
If you like Code Geass or 07 Ghost, you will probably find the other serie also very good. They have same kind of drawing-style, and same sort of main-character: a boy/man with some special powers. They both also have futuristical vehicles and a bit same kind of plot.
Ill begin with the obvious, which is that both anime have very beutiful and similar animation, throughout both you are hard press to find anything that isnt pleasing to look at.
Although 07-Ghost and Geass have some big differences between them, one being based on mecha, the other not, their are similarities with the general theme of their plot and do center greatly around their central characters.
The animation styles are very similar in both Code Geass and 07-ghost. The main characters have some strong similarities (clothing choices not withstanding), including a mysterious power. The intricate storylines are both enjoyable, and if you like one, you'll like the other.
In both series, the protagonists struggle with an almighty empire that has played a significant role in their past.
The two have similar animation and powerful music that add to the scenes.
I think the similarities lie withing the combination of both being very serious but at the same time funny. Both have ver intereting characters which are also somewhat twisted within themselves. In both animes there are mysteries and riddles to be solved, though while in Code Geass we kind of watch a "negative" protagonist and in 7 Ghosts a "positive" one.
Both animes are high in their drawing qualities and are full of action. I may note that I loved the openings and endings of both a lit, too.
Differences: 7 Ghosts is playing in an anchient styled time & world while Code Geass is a very developed future.
If you liked 07-Ghost, you'll probably like Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. Both are very military-focused, and the storylines are both steeped in secrets, double-crossing and dodgy authority figures.
Also, the central characters are both young men, schooled in the confines of, or in close proximity to, a military setting. Both are disillusioned with their 'leaders', and are spurred forward to break ranks and dismantle the imbalance/corruption that their authority figure represents... at great risk to their lives.
Both have pasts which gradually reveal a great deal of the inner-workings of their journey, including childhood trauma and subsequent secrets.
Both 07 Ghost and code Geass are quite alike, they both follow the main lead who rebels against the empire in each of their respect series, creating a enemy of the empire and military.
That is the main point to each series but aside there we do have some other simularities, Both series are built around some form of supernatural (it does vary though). The big fun in each series is watching our characters "fight back" against the respective empires though.
If one of these series was something you enjoy im sure you might enjoy trying the other.
They're similar in how they both involve the revenge on the goverment thing, yet in 07 Ghost, there aren't as much battles and stuff.
They both involve a boy with mysterious magical powers who wants to rebel against an "evil" government while protecting his family/friend. Both boys were born into nobility and then thrown into exile and both act more mature than their ages (most of the time). The animation styles are very similar in that the characters are very beautiful (both male and female). While Code Geass is more mecha concentrated, 07 Ghost does contain some mecha (their flying battleships, etc), but at a lesser extent. In Code Geass, most of the fighting is done with the machines with the help of Lelouch's magic, however in 07 Ghost, all the fighting is done with magic (and a magical sythe).
Both of the protagonists are from important decent, both have their highs and lows and find ways to overcome their losses with many fighting seans along the way.
Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!
Both shows feature a ragtag gang of heroes who go up against an evil empire in order to save the world. They also feature a young girl with mysterious powers who may very well be the key to their salvation. Also, the mecha combat is identical except that in Code Geass, they can't fly. But everything as far as movement and how they look and how they fight is just about identical. Code Geass can be a bit more violent and mean-spirited at times while Eureka can be more romantic.
Besides featuring the same opening theme artist and being mecha anime, these two have a very different approach to the mecha scene. They are great in giving the viewer enough story and action while not drowning either in one side for too long. If you liked one, try out the other.
Two of the best mecha anime out there. If you enjoyed the action of Eureka Seven then you should deffinatly check out Code Geass.
Eureka 7 has the same building stones as Code Geass: mecha action, a supernatural mysterious power and most importantly a good story to keep everything together. Combine that with a few nervosities in the characters that don't go to the extent of Evangelion-like breakdowns; and a very nice interaction between the characters.
This brings you to two anime that differ completely in plot, powers and even mecha style; yet manage to leave a similar feeling of success and satisfaction.
These are pretty similiar went they come to Mecha, but what makes them really good is that they have a wonderful story line in both of them they also have really good sad and joyful meanings it actualy moved me.
Boy eclipsed by father's fame: check. Mysterious girl helping said boy do new things: check. Story that you don't realize is as epic as it really is until late in the series: check. A lot of cool mecha: check. If you liked one of these series, there is no reason to not check out the other.
Both of Code Geass and Eureka Seven contain similar elements. A girl with mysterious powers, a government with little concern for it's people, rebellion, and mecha. Both of the protagonists are given the chance to change their world for the better, and both are up against formidable foes.
Both these anime as main plot have history of young boy, who wants fight against almost totalitarian goverment beacuse of his love (Lelouch fights for his lil' sister and Renton for mecha pilot girl, serving in famous militia "Gekko-Go"); in both series there are also mad dictators as main villains, as well as portraited in interesting ways resistance groups. Despite of fact partly similarity of soundtrack, you'll find more things in both anime, which make you content, or not.
Both of these shows have likable casts that experience misadventures, romance, hardships, and fight with fluid, stylish action as the main resistance movements against an oppressive government. Both shows deal with themes of discrimination, sacrifice and overcoming pain dealt from things out of their characters' control. Either of these shows will have you hooked until the very end.
Both series are easy to recommend due to being very friendly to introduce to mech anime and can appeal to both guys and girls alike unlike other mech anime (hello, Gundam) in which we never see female characters even piloting the mech.
In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.
Both series fight in robots... well kind of.
And they're both about psychological issues.
In the first episode of CG they show the main character's mind in the same way they portray the mind in Neon Genesis Evangelion.
And they're both really great!
Both series feature great robot battles, superpowers and world-changing plots. The protagonists battle with their inner demons and face a heritage they wish to have nothing to do with.
Both shows have larger than life dramas with "mechas"; howver, they both also concentrate heavily on the personal relations between characters, allowing for viewing experiences that are never stale. The major theme within each show also revolves heavily around collective conscience versus individuality.
Each sporting their own unique type of mech, both Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Neon Genesis Evangelion are excellent transitions.
A show with giant robots can always end up being a huge bust because of just that. However, you find a nice balance between both animes that gives the mech an important supporting role, but ultimately the story and action lies with the characters and the storyline.
I enjoy a good head twister with an abundance of "oro" moments. Predictable animes that rely on the "cool" factor easily burn out. Neither of these anime sport such plots with the story leading you in all directions.
The last note is that for some reason, a good majority of animes have "the couple that cannot be." These two are no exception as they each strive to show the emotional sides of the characters. Call me a sucker, but I love any good story that makes me want something from a character real bad whether it is to realize a love, act on a love, or forsake a love. Whether or not the character makes the choice I want him/her to most of the time I am satisfied, and if you liked either NGE or CG:LotR you will most certainly be satisfied with the latter.
Code Geass and Neon Genesis Evangelion give you kinda like the same feeling while watching it. Both contain fights with some sort of robots (CG: Knightmares // NGE: Evas). Also they share some psychological aspects and definitely the "WTF moments". If you like one of them you'll surely like the other as well.
Both stories are great and epic, hard to see two anime of this kind!
Mecha are very well involved in both stories, but still they aren't the only base the story is made on.
What about characters? Very different in one anime from the other but for sure the same way deep as only a few of other anime series have.
Both of these anime take place after the destruction of Japan (whether literally or politically). Both involve the use of Mecha to fight, usually in large-scale battles. Both anime also involve school-age kids piloting the mecha while dealing with teen-angst.
A conflicted protagonist with father issues . . .
A mysterious girl . . .
A hot-headed girl who pilots a red mecha . . .
The protagonist's father with dubious morality . . .
Assimilation plot . . .
Yep, there's no denying these similarities between Shinji and Lelouch, Rei and C.C., Asuka and Kallen and of course Gendo and Emperor Charles.
Neon Genesis Evangellion is not for you if you donnot like unfullfilling dramatic allegories. It is symbolic, it is dramatic, it is depressing and there is no catharsis in the end. Watch it for the epicness of the sin, of the dark side, of the condemnation of all that we have faith in. Do not watch it if you expect to spend some of your time with something "interesting" or fun.
Both animes are Mecha themed. The main characters are high schoolers. Both also deal with very depressing themes at times.
