Hey, guys welcome back to Kaizetsu.com. Today we are going to provide you the list of Anime which are very similar to anime named Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Short introduction to Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?

10. Valvrave the Liberator

Description: In the future, Earth is split into three factions: Dorssia, an empire bent on world domination; ARSUS, a military alliance; and Jiro, a collection of neutral states with colonies across the galaxy. On one such colony, Haruto Tokishima lives a carefree life at Sakimori High, where his greatest concern is mustering the courage to confess to his childhood friend, Shouko. His idyllic life is broken, however, when a team of Dorssian super-soldiers, led by the enigmatic L-elf, assaults the colony to retrieve the ‘Valvrave’, a mobile suit secretly being constructed there. In the resulting chaos, Haruto watches as Shouko disappears within a laser’s blast; enraged, he climbs into the now accessible Valvrave, and defeats the Dorssian army after forsaking his humanity to the machine. Haruto pledges to protect the colony, but can he come to terms with what he’s given up to gain such power?

Number of Episodes: 12

Release Year: 2013

The main characters for each are given mysterious, kickass powers that they use to fight for their cause and nation, twists up the wazoo and explosive badass mecha-on-mecha action with tons of cheese. Both are high-octane thrill rides and thrive on action, suspense, drama and the pros and cons of their new and terribly awesome powers

9. Neon Genesis Evangelion

Description: In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III – a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind’s only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Number of Episodes: 26

Release Year: 1995 – 1996

Both stories are great and epic, hard to see two anime of this kind!

Mecha are very well involved in both stories, but still they aren’t the only base the story is made on.

What about characters? Very different in one anime from the other but for sure the same way deep as only a few of other anime series have.

8. Eureka Seven

Description: Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!

Number of Episodes: 50

Release Year: 2005 – 2006

Both shows feature a ragtag gang of heroes who go up against an evil empire in order to save the world.  They also feature a young girl with mysterious powers who may very well be the key to their salvation.  Also, the mecha combat is identical except that in Code Geass, they can’t fly.  But everything as far as movement and how they look and how they fight is just about identical.  Code Geass can be a bit more violent and mean-spirited at times while Eureka can be more romantic.

7. 07-Ghost

Description: Teito Klein is a former slave who attends the Barsburg Empire’s military academy. Having no memory of his past and the power to wield a rare ability called Zaiphon, Teito is constantly under the scrutiny of his peers – except for his best friend Mikage, the only person he connects with. After seeing and remembering the man who killed his father, Teito tries to kill him and finds himself on the run from Barsburg’s military might. Now, with the evil beings known as Kor after his soul, the Barsburg Empire after his blood and only the legendary Seven Ghosts to protect him, Teito must unlock the memories of his past before he ends up as a sacrifice for Verloren, the sealed God of Death.

Number of Episodes: 25

Release Year: 2009

They both involve a boy with mysterious magical powers who wants to rebel against an “evil” government while protecting his family/friend.  Both boys were born into nobility and then thrown into exile and both act more mature than their ages.  The animation styles are very similar in that the characters are very beautiful (both male and female).  While Code Geass is more mecha concentrated, 07 Ghost does contain some mecha (their flying battleships), but at a lesser extent.  In Code Geass, most of the fighting is done with the machines with the help of Lelouch’s magic, however in 07-Ghost, all the fighting is done with magic (and a magical sythe). 

6. Fullmetal Alchemist

Description: Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye — you can’t get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago…

Number of Episodes: 51

Release Year: 2003 – 2004

In both Fullmetal Alchemist and Code Geass, politics and the shifting of power between people and governements are paramount to the storyline. Coldness and strategy meet passion and love in a believable scenery.

5. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Description: Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village – one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race – will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?

Number of Episodes: 27

Release Year: 2007

Both of these animes have so many twist and turns that when you thought you had it figured out, another scenario comes into play, and when you though you have that scenario figured out, another scenario would play. Undoubtedly they are both extremely well written and though out animes, and if you are looking for a mind blowing and unexpected experience, one that keeps your blood pumping for excitement, and the eagerness to find out what will occur in the upcoming episode, than this is the route to go with.

4. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED

Description: The universe of the future is divided between the Earth Alliance and ZAFT. After a year of war, ZAFT attacks the neutral colony Heliopolis to steal five prototype mobile suits. The mission is a success, but a young man named Kira stumbles upon the fifth Gundam, and he may be the Alliance’s only hope…

Number of Episodes: 50

Release Year: 2002 – 2003

Beyond simply featuring mecha, both shows address many similar themes, such as racism and the value of human life versus strategic gain. The motivations of the main characters are also largely similar– they fight largely in order to protect those that they care about, though their means and approach do differ.

3. Aldnoah.Zero

Description: Fifteen years have passed since the hypergate collapsed on the moon’s surface – a catastrophe known as the Heaven’s Fall. The war between Earth and the VERS Empire of Mars is now in a cease-fire. The VERS’ Princess Asseylum Vers Allusia descends upon Earth as an ambassador hoping to encourage reconciliation while some citizens are not willing to compromise. Inaho Kaizuka, a Terran high school student… and Slaine Troyard, who swears his allegiance to Princess Assylum… Their fates cross as both societies watch in horror as a missile crashes on Asseylum’s motorcade. This incident marks the beginning of a new war.

Number of Episodes: 12

Release Year: 2014

Both Code Geass and Aldnoah.Zero have phenominal plots with many twists that you won’t see coming. I won’t get too much into details but there are many similarities, especially that both are originially anime, not based on a manga or light novel.

2. Mobile Suit Gundam 00

Description: In the 24th century, the planet’s fossil fuels have been completely consumed, forcing humanity to use solar power as the primary source of energy. A huge solar energy system orbiting the planet was eventually built, anchored to the Earth and providing it with power through three orbital space elevators. As a result of the expense of such a large-scale project, most the world consolidated into three factions: the Union, the Human Reform League, and the AEU. Despite their common reliance on the fragile orbital elevators for energy, however, humanity still continues to constantly fight wars and build up arms. A paramilitary organization called Celestial Being, equipped with incredibly powerful mobile suits called Gundams, fight in order to force humanity to unite and eradicate armed conflict.

Number of Episodes: 25

Release Year: 2007 – 2008

Both anime have mecha elements with mobile suits. What uniqely connects the two is the strategical aspect both possess. Further more they also deal with political affairs, that concern the future of humanity. In order to make sure the destinies they choose lead to prosperity for the whole world.

1. Death Note

Description: Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled “Death Note”, whose text within states that whoever’s name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light’s actions will not go unchallenged…

Number of Episodes: 37

Release Year: 2006 – 2007

Both shows feature a main character who uses his high intelligence to create intricate plans to accomplish his goals and defeat his rivals (who often are just as intelligent and have their own plans).  Both main characters straddle the line of good and evil for the sake of justice, and have no qualms or hesitations about sending people to their deaths in order to further their goals.
