However a teenage boy Lelouch Lamperouge - Voiced by: "Jun Fukuyama" (Japanese) and "Johnny Yong Bosch" (English) has a grudge against these prejudice royalties and after acquiring a unique power called Geass, does he begin to take matters into his own hands. Becoming leader to rebels, protecting his disabled sister and creating a character that threatens the fascism and tyranny of Britannia. How far will Lelouch go to change the world and have his Royal revenge?
I've stated recently that I've been working super hard the last month so I flicked on Netflix and saw this. I was introduced to the first episode through another Lewis who was in charge of my college anime group back in 2009 but I never got round to continuing it (plus he had no remorse for showing us all the final episode of the 2nd season either) haha. So I've been enjoying and getting far into this action, mecha, military super power anime.
I actually thought back to the same year or the year before 2009 when I was in Greece talking to my best friend/ greek sister who loves Anime like me (especially Death Note) and mentioned this anime to me since it reminded her of DN where someone acquires power and uses it as an anti-hero. Sometimes it takes me forever to getting round to watching things haha.

Plus theirs the mysterious woman C.C - Voiced by: "Yukana Nogami" (Japanese) and "Kate Higgins" (English), who serves as the closes accomplice and partner in Lelouch's revolution. You won't believe how much "fan-service" there is on the internet of her and how many choose to cosplay her at Comic-Con. She is an intelligent woman with an unbelievable love for Pizza.
But you'll have to watch for yourselves to see how important she is and how her gift will shape Lelouch into the anti-hero he will become.
My friend Beki loves her so much and has cosplayed her before. She's also been a good friend to talk to this past week about the series since not many of my anime friends have seen this yet.
Nightmare Frames machines since to me they remind me of a pawn size chess piece compared to colossal mechas of war like Gundam or Evangelion's. These agile mecha's on rollerskates add a futuristic higher level of combat to the anime and some really stand out from the generic class.
I just remembered the silly video Cardgames on Motorcycles joke from the Yugioh 5d's abridged anime and just thoughts up my own parody of Nightmares on Motorskates (or Roller-skates)? *cricket noise during awkward silence* Oh well was worth a try.
The art isn't bad for a 10 year old anime. Having watched a few up-to-date anime with more stunning graphic artwork, I can't help but appreciate each art level of anime for it's time of release. The detail to the characters up close or the animation for the nightmare frame battles are excellent and graphical.
"Stories" is played during the one-to-one secret meetings and gives off a mysterious vibe since C.C herself is full of mystery. It's like something you'd play when alone looking up at the clear night sky whilst pondered the existence of all life or something. "All Hail Britannia" is the theme of Britannia which makes me cringe a little since I feel it's spot on for such a pompous prejudice country (makes the real England look better than these antagonists). "Boy from Britannia" is a good piece played during the recaps at the beginning of episodes.
The second "Kaidoku Funou" by Jinn wasn't bad as it was a step up to a punk rock theme instead of the pop original opening intro. But it wasn't my kind of thing compared to other Punk I listen to.
Lastly "Hitomi no Tsubasa" by Access is a techno beat intro which is played during the last 2 episodes.
The ending songs weren't really my thing sadly but they might be for you.
It's up to us to fill in the cracks
And bring this world back to what it could have been"
I feel that I get into things too easily and some would question my actions and behaviour. I've been pausing and acting in the mirror like I'm in the anime world and say what I'd do in that situation. I'd do the same as Lelouch but with unimaginable powers and destroy with pleasure, metalcore/ rock music playing and lecture them all as I play with them (bit like Deadpool or Carnage).
Am I the only one who acts like this? Doesn't anyone else equally or less destructively feel or act the same way when reading books and comics or watching films, tv series or Animes... Or am I just too weird?
I think my Aspergers can affect my behaviour when I'm watching certain things, whether I'm being affected from the language, content or violence, I still imagine unlimited things since my mind is like that. I can come across as too strong and rather dark under some moments and depending on how I am feeling there and then. And I admit that it's a bit too much (let alone possible for me to be ever seen doing anything in real life) but I guess I have to give my opinion or ideas across no matter how strong or indifferent as they may be to other people's thoughts or moments of what would they do in a situation or imaginary world?
Plus I'm not all destruction, revenge and chaos, I do have a heart and will explain more on that in my Clannad review in April.
You know I actually had some trouble finding a descent size title picture of the first season. I searched all Saturday last weekend to find the cover with title or official cover instead of DVD covers in Parts.
It's thanks to Lewis that he introduced me to being able to Google Image search by clicking on the camera icon and upload the image you save. That way it'll search for similar images and can produce more sizes.
I also learnt to click on the "Search by Image" option which appears next to images that you click on.
I'm glad I learned something new and very helpful as well as solve my problem otherwise this would have been delayed much longer.
I really liked "her" since she was an enemy that I adored for her kindness and innocence. It f***ing sucked since an alternative solution had been snuffed out like a flame.
Too bad, revenge can change us and it costs many lives, even some dear and unlocks regret and sorrow. With great power comes great responsibility, sadly his may lead him to being a saviour to some but something else to everyone else (depending on your judgement)...
