On August 10, 2010, a.t.b. (the Imperial calendar), the Holy Empire of Britannia overpowered Japanese forces and conquered the country with their new robotic weapons, the Knightmare Frames, in less than a month. In the aftermath of Britannia’s invasion, Japan lost its freedom, its rights, and even its name, becoming Area 11 of the Britannian Empire. The Japanese people, renamed as “Elevens”, are forced to survive in poor neighborhoods, while Britannians live in first-class settlements. Rebel elements persist, however, as pockets of Japanese organizations struggle against the Empire for the independence of Japan.
After his father, the Emperor of Britannia, failed to prevent the assassination of his mother, an attack which also left his sister blind and crippled, the young prince Lelouch vowed to destroy Britannia. Seven years later, he accidentally becomes mixed up with “terrorists” in Area 11 and encounters a mysterious girl named C.C., who gives him the power of Geass. With it, he finally has the power that he needs to defeat Britannia and fulfill his two wishes: to seek revenge for his mother and to construct a world in which his beloved sister can live happily.
Then, the stories goes as he became king of Zero, leader of The Order Of Black Knight (Kuro no kishidan)
The Power of King, Geass
Geass (ギアス giasu) is a mysterious ability which certain people can bestow upon others; C.C. is the most prominent character who grants the power of Geass. The form the Geass takes is different in each individual. C.C. calls Geass the Power of Kings (王の力 Ō no Chikara?). It is represented by a glowing, bird-shaped symbol.
Every Geass has its own unique set of restrictions, limitations, or idiosyncrasies. These factors allow a Geass to be defeated, or its power limited, by someone who is aware of its characteristics. All Geass abilities that have thus far appeared within the canon of the television series have been related to the mind, influencing such aspects as will, thought, memory, emotion, and perception. Geass abilities in the manga sidestory Knightmare of Nunnally have no such limitations.
The power of Geass increases with use, usually starting in one eye. It can eventually spread to both eyes and become uncontrollable with repeated use. At this point, the one who granted the power can relinquish his or her immortality to the recipient, allowing the recipient to continue the cycle while the giver is allowed to die. The immortality is referred to as the giver’s “Code,” and grants the person immunity to Geass in exchange for their original power. Lelouch and C.C. are currently the only living people that still have the Geass and Code, respectively.
According to an English edition of Newtype, the power of Geass has something to do with the very existence of humankind, and it may be used to destroy or transform just about anything. “Geass” may be an intentional corruption of the word geas or geis, a term for a type of magical contract in Irish mythology.
(Lelouch Vi Britannia, 11th prince)
King Of Zero
99th Emperor Of Britannia (2nd Season)
The title character and protagonist of the show, Lelouch Lamperouge is seemingly an ordinary 17-year-old student at the Ashford Academy. In reality, he is the son of the Emperor of Britannia and the late Empress Marianne. His real name is Lelouch vi Britannia, the Eleventh Prince of the Britannian Empire prior to his mother’s assassination. When he gets caught up in a battle between the military and Japanese rebels, he gains the power of Geass, which forces others to obey his orders without question. With this power, he begins his quest to destroy Britannia under the alias of Zero.
Euphy (Gabenor Area 11) Knight

Knight Of Zero (Under 99th Emperor)
Lelouch’s childhood friend and son of Japan’s last prime minister, Suzaku is in the service of the Britannia Army as a soldier, and was chosen to test an experiment new model of Knightmare Frame, the Lancelot. Suzaku claims achieving results by wrong or illegal methods is meaningless and does not approve of Zero’s actions.
The immortal witch
A mysterious green-haired girl who bestows the power of Geass upon Lelouch under the condition that he grant her greatest wish. C.C.’s abilities caught the interest of Britannia and she was imprisoned as a part of Britannia’s experiments in the past. She passively oversees Lelouch’s missions to ensure that he does not die and to help his plans succeed.
(Nunnally Vi Britannia)
Gabenor Area 11
Candidate of The Next Emperor (season 2)
Nunnally is Lelouch’s younger sister, who is wheelchair-bound due to bullet wounds on her legs, as well as blind due to psychological trauma from witnessing the brutal assassination of her mother but yet that is the influence of the geass by The 98th Emperor of Britannia, giving her a phycology illness…
The Guard of Zero
Ace of the Black Knight
Kallen is a Britannian-Eleven girl who believes herself to be a Japanese person at heart and prefers to be known by her birth name. Her father is Britannian and her mother is an Eleven; her father comes from a prestigious Britannian family and as such she attends the Ashford Academy, where she is a member of its student council and is one of its most outstanding students. Though she maintains a frail-girl image at school, she is a member of a Japanese resistance cell.
Code Geass is sponsored by a number of companies in Japan, and hence their logos and mascots make inside the anime. The logo of the Japanese internet service provider BIGLOBE appears in the background of news programs and web searches. Pizza Hut references are more prominent, since C.C. orders from them constantly and carries around a stuffed toy of the Japanese branch’s mascot, Cheese-kun (チーズくん?). Pizza Hut’s logo is edited out in the English dub.

胸の中いつか拾った 幸せのかけら 集めてみよう
忘れかけていた メロディー 色あせず僕の真ん中に
力を送るよday by day
胸の中あふれそうな 幸せのかけら つなげてみよう
力強くなる メロディー 繰り返されてくメッセージ
涙がこぼれそうな 長い夜は ふっとふり返って
I’ll try gathering up the pieces of happiness that I picked up some other time in my chest
A melody that I started to forget about is right in the middle of me, unfading
While I was searching through borrowed comic books, from time to time I found faded anthologies
It was me who laughed out loud like an idiot at stuff like “seize the world”
During the days when I seized not the world but the hanging strap on the train
While smiling and saying, “I’m sorry,” to me back then, you lowered your head
Thank you, from my heart
I owe it to everyone for now to exist in me
Thank you, from my heart
Next it’ll be me who delivers happiness to everyone, Wow
I won’t forget just about everything since me back then was also me
It was useless that I didn’t always say ‘I love you’
When it’s tough, it’s okay even if you run away, if you return here again
Let’s go make various stops on the way in the original days
Right in the middle of an unstopping city, since when have you been looking down?
You hold too many “feelings” and blow out like a tire all alone
So listen to my words, for you who gave me happiness
I’ll give you strength day by day
I’ll try connecting the pieces of happiness that seem to overflow in my chest
A message makes the strengthening melody repeat
On a long night when my tears seem to spill, I suddenly turn back
And follow my footprints, so that I won’t forget about that day
The other song, usearch by yourself. I just like this song…..
