This may not interest a lot of you but why would I care (My blog after all)? This is the nerd corner and I will be highlighting various anime (old and new), video games, tech info and interesting TV shows.
If you haven’t seen the Code Geass anime, you need to go ahead and do so. It currently has 2 seasons with a short OVA series. It’s an anime that has a serious story which include a lot of political and diversity undertones. It has its funny moments as well but keeps the same consistency throughout. One can liken this series to Wing Gundam in terms of character development and motivation as well as the inclusion of mechs.
A brief synopsis of Season 1: “In the year 2010, the Holy Empire of Britannia is establishing itself as a dominant military nation, starting with the conquest of Japan. Renamed to Area 11 after its swift defeat, Japan has seen significant resistance against these tyrants in an attempt to regain independence.
Lelouch Lamperouge, exiled prince of Britannia, unfortunately finds himself caught in a crossfire between the two nations’ armed forces. He is able to escape, however, thanks to the timely appearance of a mysterious girl named C.C., who bestows upon him Geass, the “Power of Kings.” Realizing the vast potential of his newfound “power of absolute obedience,” Lelouch embarks upon a perilous journey as the masked vigilante known as Zero, leading a merciless onslaught against Britannia in order to get revenge once and for all.” -Source (https://myanimelist.net/anime/1575/Code_Geass__Hangyaku_no_Lelouch)
The third season of this classic anime is supposed to be released sometime this spring. If your looking for a new anime to binge watch and keep your interest, this would be a great one to watch. If you want to get the full scope of the anime, watch all three series; Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Code Geass: Akito the Exiled and Code Geass: R2. Akito the Exiled kind of bridges the first and second seasons as well as expands on the mythology of the Geass subject. Long live Zero.
