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 :) !

I just finished watching Code Geass for the first time. It was pretty good. My favorite characters are Suzaku, Euphemia, Shirley, Villetta, and Ohgi. I didn't really care for Lelouch, C.C., Kallen, Rolo, Tamaki, Tohdoh, Nunally, and the Emperor. I really liked the relationships between Suzaku and Euphemia and Villetta and Ohgi. What is C.C.'s real name? I also saw the new movie dubbed last week and got art cards of Lelouch. Today I watched the birthday and Nunally in Wonderland OVAs. I was annoyed by the fact that they were barely even animated at all. I'm probably gonna watch the Akito the Exiled OVAs this week.

Been on my list for quite a while at this point, I should really get to it... but I'm busy with way too many Gundam shows xD
Why don't you save the Princess next time instead of being such a baby? She would love it and maybe you could get a sweet kiss. ~ sadly not Mari in Q (Joseki)

What about titty-ten? ~ Reichu

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu
