Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

The series is set in an alternative present where the world is split into three superpowers, Britannia, The Chinese Federation, and the Euro Universe (EU). The story takes place after the Holy Britannian Empire’s conquest on Japan in August 10, 2010 a.t.b., by means of Britannia’s newest weapon, the “Armored Autonomous Knight”, or Knightmare Frame. In turn, Britannia effectively strips Japan and its citizens of all rights and freedoms and renames the country Area 11 with its citizens referred to as Elevens.
Lelouch Lamperouge, the series’ protagonist, is an exiled Britannian prince who was sent as a hostage to Japan, along with his sister Nunnally Lamperouge, by his father, Emperor Charles zi Britannia, after his mother, Marianne vi Britannia, was murdered. He then vows to obliterate Britannia. Seven years later, Lelouch meets a girl known as C.C. who, in order to save his life, makes a contract with him. Lelouch then gains a power called Geass, also known as the Power of the King, allowing him to command anyone to do what he wants, bending their will to live, fight, die, and follow orders – though only if he has direct eye contact with his target. With this new power and his natural intelligence, Lelouch sets out to find the person who killed his mother and to make a better world for his sister, Nunnally. He becomes the leader of the resistance movement known as The Black Knights, who wage war on Britannia. As the Black Knights’ leader he takes on an alter-ego called Zero, gaining popular support among the Japanese people on his way towards rebellion.
