"The only ones who should kill are those prepared to be killed!"
Lelouch Lamperouge as Zero

Lelouch Lamperouge is a young Britannian prince living in exile in Area 11, a dominion of the Holy Britannian Empire that was once known as Japan. After gaining the power of Geass from a mysterious woman, Lelouch begins his own personal war with Britannia, forming a private army known as the Black Knights and bearing the moniker of "Zero" to crush the empire that took everything from him so his sister Nunnally can live in peace. Little does he know, his path will set him on a collision course with his best friend; Suzaku Kururugi, the son of Japan's last prime minister, now a Britannian soldier who is determined to change the Empire for the better from within. What is Lelouch willing to sacrifice to see his ambitions come to fruition, and how far will Suzaku's convictions be tested?

"I am Lelouch vi Britannia, son of the late empress Marianne! The prince abandoned by his kingdom! If there are any that think they can go beyond my despair, then let them try!"
Lelouch vi Britannia

It has been a year since Lelouch's last attempt to topple the Holy Britannian Empire, during which time he has been living with false memories that forced him to forget about Nunnally. With his sister now missing and a hostage of the Empire, Lelouch once more ignites the flames of war against Britannia. This time, with the eyes of his enemies upon him, he must pull out all the stops to defeat Britannia. At the same time, Suzaku will go to any lengths to ensure Zero's ambitions fail. The stage is now being set for a war that will determine the fate of not only Lelouch, Suzaku, and those closest to them, but the entire world.
