Synopsis of Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch

In the year 2010, the Holy Britannia Empire has established itself as the most powerful military nation in the world, beginning with the conquest of Japan, now renamed Area 11, after its crushing defeat. Japan, however, has been reluctant to bow to the Empire’s policies, and several inhabitants give birth to possible independence.

Lelouch Lamperouge, a student at Britannia, unfortunately finds himself caught in the middle of the crossfire between Britannia’s warriors and the rebels of Area 11. Lelouch is able to escape, however, thanks to the timely appearance of a mysterious girl named CC, who grants him a Geass, known as “Will of the King”. Realizing the potential of his new “power of absolute obedience,” Lelouch embarks on a journey under the guise of the masked “Zero,” leading a bloody rebellion against the Holy Empire of Britannia.
