Code Geass

I noticed that a thread has not yet been posted for this decently popular (and, IMHO, quite good) anime. For various reasons, I think it might appeal to a good-sized portion of the NGE fanbase.

For those Eva-fans who haven't seen it, it's a really good story of an underground resistance movement, headed by a son of the tyrant they're trying to overthrow. It deals with the theme of self-knowledge very well.

Let me put it this way: It's an anime that has several characters worthy of deep analysis (Lelouch, Suzaku, Mao, C.C.). It might not seem that way, at first glance, but it really is a very deep show sometimes. I think that's something one doesn't often see outside NGE. This is why I consider it one of my favorite anime of all time.
(By the way, it has mecha too.)

I don't suppose anyone else here has seen it yet (and would like to give their opinions)?

P.S.
SPOILER: Show
Some folks might think that, just because CG doesn't always take itself seriously, it means that it's not intended to have a lot of depth. While I agree that it can be enjoyed on a purely superficial level, and that some scenes are clearly meant to be enjoyed that way, that does not mean that there is not a lot of really high-quality writing and cinematography going on. If anyone would like any examples of what I mean by that, feel free to ask.

Ah. I did a quick search for 'geass' in the searchbar, but I didn't see any. I didn't realize that it organizes the results based on recency, and not on whether the word's in the title (though one can probably do that, if one knew how...). Ah, well. Sorry 'bout that :) !
