It had awkward artwork, and I was never really impressed with the plot

That's because you're a dullard - a child who has grown up in bubble, mommy and daddy having deluded you as to what the world is. The rest of the world will never pander to the every whim of little boys, child, no matter how much you would like to believe it will. Code Geass is one of the most philosophically astounding pieces I've ever borne witness to.

Finally, a CG thread. I had Lelouch as my avatar for a long time.

I remember... but I am the true Lelouch vi Britannia!

Your antics are hopelessly transparent. By now, you know what my response is to this, so I won't trouble myself henceforth, verbalizing it.

lol Who watches anime for philosophy? I judge anime by captivation, creativity, and artistry. So these would be the best animes in my opinion (in no order):
1. naruto
2. kenshin
3. Yu yu hakusho
4. Full Metal Alchemist
5. Inuyasha

Indeed, and I'm sure you're very much favourable to the Tellytubbies also, 000ike? Do tell, though: what's been so transparent about my actions? ;D

Did you know, for example, that I have been building you up just to tear you down all along? And such the sucker you were.

That's a silly metric. It's entertaining, creative, and the artwork is adequate. What's your definition of good?

Boy, that was a randomly venomous response to someone else's essentially-trivial opinion.

You, too, are a child. There's nothing random about it. And Naruto is nonsense by the way, the boy 000ike would like to believe he is, though so filled with self-interest as he is.

Haters... Naruto is amazing right now. The episode last last week, was amazing.

Code Geass is amazing though, it is tied for my all time favorite anime, with Clannad. The controversy about lelouch at the end needs to stop, Lelouch being alive would be a disgrace to the whole series.

I hope you're not talking about After Story because that magic reset-button ending was some BS. But other than that, yeah it was pretty good. Cheesy as hell, but still very emotional.

Estranged son of the royal family tries to get revenge, plus hot chicks and mechs. The first season is good, but the second isn't that great. It tried to do too much and things got ridiculous.

I don't personally care for the series as a whole. Also lol at all the Naruto love in this thread. Watch some good anime.

How is this title pronounced?

I want to say it like "Code Geese" but then that just sounds like a show about secret agent birds

I enjoy Naruto, but I adore Code Geass.

In Naruto, all the spotlight is the flashy fights, such as DBZ, with bits of "deep" story and dialogues here and there. It is fun to watch, but when I look deeper into it I just cannot get past how much some characters are stupid and motiveless. It's cool and all, but nowhere near the actually good anime.

I doubt any Code Geass fan would mention mecha first when asked to describe the anime. That is because all the flashy fights and loads and loads of fan service are not the main focus. But the relationships between people, their motives, their mistakes, that is the beauty of this anime. It is really symbolic and beautiful.

In the scene when SPOILERS SPOILERS Lelouch accidentally used his Geass on Euphie and later had to make use of it, despite being horrified by what he's done, I literally paced all over the room, nervous, wanting to break stuff. It is how much this anime has affected me while watching it and how beautifully thought out some scenes are that makes this show just fantastic.

Also, Lelouch is alive, deal wit it.

Anybody heard of the anime Angel Beats and Air? Say what you want. Clannad was a awesome anime. I don't know how people like Naruto. It's getting old.

Anybody that says Air is a poor anime is getting drop kicked.

What the heck did you just flipping say about me, you big meanie? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Tiny Tots Program, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on the girl's bathroom, and I have over 300 confirmed noogies. I am trained in Nerf warfare and I have the most gold stars in the entire kindergarten class. You are nothing to me but just another butthead. I will beat you the heck up with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my dang words. You think you can get away with saying that baloney to me on the glowy type-box? Think again, doodiehead. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of teachers across the USA and your parents are being called to pick you up right now so you better prepare for the spanking, junior. The spanking that wipes out the dumb little thing you call your playtime. You're in big darn trouble, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can wedgie you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed fartfights, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States PTA and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your dorky bottom off the face of the playground, you little poopypants. If only you could have known what serious punishments your little "smartypants" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your goshdarned tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you silly doofus. I will spray boogers all over you and you will cry about it. You're frickin grounded, buttmunch.
