There is a reason why this series was named best Anime Series in 2008.
I mean it when I say that this series has something for everyone. Whatever your poison- from action to suspense to science fiction to yes, even romance- this show manages to weave all of these important thematic elements together into this fantastic story that during its entire 50+ episode run, manages to keep the viewer interested without laying any of its individual elements on too thickly. There are plenty twists and turns, plot devices, surprises and comedic moments that will keep its audience gripped until the very end.
And anyone who is a religious fan can tell you, anime is known for its lackluster endings.
Code Geass, however, manages to steer away from this stereotype, delivering a beautiful, finate closing to such a richly crafted and evenly distributed storyline that will most certainly keep you talking for weeks afterward.
