If you liked the manipulation skills Lelouch had you will like the way Light acts to get what he wants. Both series have very strong main characters. The intelligence of the characters makes them seem godlike in the face of adversity but like Lelouch, Light also has his share of enemies.
The main characters in Death Note and Code Geass are really smart and godlike. They know what they want and how to get it. The enemies they face are really tough and intelligent, which makes both stories really interesting.
Both Death Note and Code Geass have a similar lead character and a great story. They are two intense series about the main character's rise and search for power, although under completely different circumstances.
Area 11 is still under Britannian rule and the Elevens remain brutally oppressed; what’s more, their saviour, Zero, is nowhere to be found and all of Britannia believes the rebellion is finally over. Elsewhere, having lost the battle, Lelouch sets his sights upon winning the war – but the task is no easier since the Britannian forces have learned...

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 revolve around the anti-hero trying to take over the world. Death Note is a darker themed version of the genre, and Code Geass has mech elements, but both series provide an interesting outlook on tyranny.
The Supernatural Aspects, and the slightly dark sides to both, Death Note, and Code Geass are very simalar.
I Personally LOVE Code geass, and death note is a close 2nd or 3rd place.
In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident's mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an...

What strikes me as similar about Death Note and Psycho-pass is that they both ask similar heavy questions about justice and the treatment of criminals. The premise in both revolves around a method of controlling crime before it happens, and the human drama that follows revolves largely around the police and their role in society.
The central themes of justice and revenge, as well as treatment of criminals and the justice system in geneal, are present in both. If you enjoy anime that make you think on larger scale issues, chances are you'll enjoy both.
Both are darker psychological thrillers. The settings are different, one modern....one futuristic, but both are about fictional moral systems, and the cat and mouse game that follows.
