There are a lot of animes that I absolutely love and enjoy, but if I were to choose only one, it would be Code Geass : Lelouch of the rebellion. It is a brilliant anime, to say the least.
It is one of those animes that have a little of everything in them, without leaving you disappointed or dissatisfied. I admit that the animation seems slightly different, what with the extremely elongated characters, but I agree that it only seems different on first glance.
It is a story of a brother’s undying love for his sister, a bond between two childhood friends, revenge against the injustice done to a family, rebellion against the cruel rule of a monarchy and lastly, a power that allows one to make anyone obey their commands. The power of the Geass. It also perfectly captures the backlash of possessing such a power and the mistakes Lelouch makes and the lessons he learns on the way. But it’s not always this serious. It’s got some light hearted, school life moments in it as well. The story is exceptional and very progressive and we see the characters grow and change. It’s not always just centered around Lelouch as well. It’s a beautiful story of love and sacrifice.
The character of Lelouch is amazing, with all its flaws. Every character is different and has his/her own part to play in the story. It is simply OUTSTANDING. I can’t even put to words how realistically accurate the characters are!
All that being said, I should perhaps add that it does seem a little boring in the beginning, but, takes the pace after a few episodes and only elevates after that. And the ending! It is such a bittersweet ending.
The anime has a way of messing your emotions.
So, if you haven’t seen it yet, go see it already! You won’t regret it.
And if you have then you know what I’m talking about and we can all cry together.
But what about you? What’s your favorite anime so far? I’d love to hear your views.
Thanks for reading!
