Web Video: Code Geass: The Abridged Series

"I am Lelouch Vi Britannia... And this... is my story."
The Opening Line of the Series

Exactly What It Says on the Tin. One of several Abridged Series based on Code Geass. The original run of eight episodes (and one "half-episode") was made during a 2008-2010 run. After that, it was taken down for two years, and appears to be running back from the first episode. The current run of the show can be found here. Watch it.

Optional: Watch the original series here. It may not have those fancy new syncronized lipflaps but it's as good as gold.

Not to be confused with the other Code Geass Abridged Series, Code MENT.

    New Version 
  • The Abridged Series: Again, duh.
  • The Alcoholic: Clovis
  • Big Brother Instinct: Lelouch's love for Nunally is Flanderized for the most part, although he seems to occasionally forget that he even has a sister.
  • Butt Monkey: Rivalz. Lelouch would rather talk to a dead body than him.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Shirley
    "Missing our two-day anniversary, huh? What could you possibly be doing to miss that!?"
  • Description Cut:
    Clovis: Bartley, calm yourself. I have my best men on it. THE BE-
    Cut to pile of dead soldiers
    Lelouch: Talk about dead silence.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Lelouch refers to Tamaki as "Tamagotchi" and Kallen as "Short Pants".
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Lelouch is fond of these.
  • Large Ham: Jeremiah Gottwald.
    Kallen: Who do you think you are?
    Jeremiah: I, Jeremiah Gottwald, AM JEREMIAH GOTTWALD!
  • No, Except Yes: Lelouch: "I'm not a terrorist. But one day, I will destroy, no, OBLITERATE Britannia! But I'm no terrorist."
  • The Other Darrin: The entire voice cast from the old version has been replaced with Abridged Series veterans for the most part. The sole exception is Ezekieru himself.
  • Parrot Expo What:
    Lloyd: I've done the honor of naming it Lancelot. It's the newest generation of Knightmare Frame.

    Lloyd: Giant Robot.

  • The Remake: There was an original run between 2008-2010 that gathered a decent following, but the creator dropped the project out of dissatisfaction, only to pick it up again from square one 2 years later.
  • This Is My Story: First line of the entire series, see quote up top.
  • Too Much Information:
    Lelouch: *Activates Geass* All I want... is for you to tell me... everything!
    Clovis: I know nothing of your mother's death, if anyone would know of it, it would be second prince Schneizel and second princess Cornelia. The reason you are missing is that you're aiming slightly to the left of my head and sometimes I wear women's underwear and make Bartley watch me do interpretive dance.
    Lelouch: Oh brother. You really did tell me everything.
  • You Monster!: Played for Laughs.
    Lelouch: No! You monster! I wanted to shoot [Suzaku]!
