Franchise / Code Geass

A multimedia franchise spawned from the 2006 Code Geass anime series. Created by Sunrise, the story is set in an Alternate History where Britain had a Henry IX instead of James I, kept America, but lost the British Isles to Napoleon Bonaparte. They fled to the American colonies and founded the Holy Britannian Empire, which expands to control over a third of the world, particularly after they invent Humongous Mecha. Oh, and there are the titular psychic powers involved. The main story focuses on Lelouch vi Britannia, an exiled prince of the empire who becomes the leader of a formidable rebel army fighting against the empire - and his own father, the emperor.

Along with several canon spinoffs, Code Geass has produced an incredible amount of All There in the Manual content, which includes audio dramas, Picture Dramas and DVD-exclusive short stories that help flesh out the show's universe or expand on its characters. It has also garnered five Alternate Continuity manga and multiple games to date.

Works in this franchise:


  • Code Geass — (2006-2008) The original anime, spanning two 25 episode seasons.
  • Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection — (TBA) A continuation of the original anime, announced on November 27, 2016.
  • Code Geass: Akito the Exiled — (2012-2016) A sidestory OVA written and directed by Kazuki Akane. It takes place between the first and second seasons, focusing on a group of Japanese pilots in the army of the Europia (this world's third great power, unified by Napoleon).
  • Code Geass Nunnally In Wonderland — (2012) A 30 minute Storybook Episode OVA that features the characters as the cast of Alice in Wonderland. Also acts as a Bizarro Episode of sorts for the entire series because of all the silliness going around providing a contrast to the darker atmosphere that is generally prevalent in the original anime.



  • Code Geass Lost Colors — Spin off Visual Novel with the main character called Rai who has lost his memories and has ended up at Ashford Academy. Now Rai must decide how he goes about regaining his memories.
  • Code Geass: Maelstrom of Libra — A mobile game starring a young girl named Leila who escapes from a research facility in the desert.
