After decades of war, the Holy Empire of Britannia has conquered much of the world and placed it under their thumb. In each nation they control, they have stripped the land and its people of their name, replacing it with a mere number. On August 10th, 2010, Britannia declared war against the neutral island nation ofJapan in order to claim the precious mineral known as Sakuradite. Using the Knightmare Frames (Mecha), they easily conquered the Japanese Army and subjugated their people. The country was renamed 'Area 11.'

Seven years after the end of the war, a young exiled prince of Britannia, Lelouch, has been living in secret in Japan with his younger, crippled sister, Nunnally. His normal, boring school life is changed when Lelouch accidentally gets involved with a Japanese terrorist group that believes they have stolen a biological weapon from Britannia. The capsule, however, turns out to contain an immortal witch who gives Lelouch the power called Geass. With this power, he is able to control others and make them do his bidding. Now gifted with a power to oppose the Empire, Lelouch gathers the strength left in Area 11 to form his very own rebellion: the Black Knights.

With his army, the Geass, and his tactical genius, Lelouch plans to utterly obliterate the Britannian Empire, find the truth behind his mother's murder, and build a new world where Nunnally can live in peace. The only thing standing in his way is his childhood friend Suzaku, the son of the former Japanese Prime Minister. Suzaku has joined Britannia and is determined to change it from within.
This anime captivates you from the start. If you liked deathnote you will love this! By far the best anime I have watched in 2011.
