Synopsis: Seven years have passed since the Holy Empire of Britannia occupied Japan, depriving its people of even their names and designating the country “Area 11”. Sent there in exile, Prince Lelouch of Britannia is caught amidst a struggle between Britannia’s forces and resistance fighters when he encounters C.C., a mysterious girl who bequeaths him the power to control anyone just once: “Geass”.
Realising the potential of this new gift, Lelouch declares that it’s finally time to bring down the empire that abandoned him and his sister. As the masked rebel “Zero”, Lelouch leads the “Black Knights” resistance against Britannia, whose ranks include his childhood friend Suzaku Kururugi. Now, the two former friends stand on opposite sides of a conflict that will change their lives forever.
