It's a bit too mature for tweens, but the combination of action and psychological questioning will score big among teen and adult manga fans.

Code Geass is a show that pulls the trigger. Often quite literally. It has its faults, but you definitely can't call it squeamish.

Audience Reviews for Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion: Season 1

    Excellent. One of the best animes I have watched in years. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion S1 is a compelling, innovative look at corruption and revenge in a dystopian society.

    After watching this show so many times, I've decided to finally write a review. This is one of my favorite shows of all time, not just anime, favorite SHOW. It may start out slow but that is just how most animes go, but it ramps up to an almost insane degree while still remaining within the laws the world setup. You watch Lelouch as a character grow into something you don't want to root for, but still do. It's similar to breaking bad in that regard as the hero slowly becomes an antagonist to his own story. All the twists and turns always keep you on your toes, and the common character deaths make you feel as if no one is safe. It ends the way you would hope it would and brings the whole crazy story to a satisfying end. In terms of anime I would say this is one of the greats, up there with the classics such as Dragon Ball or Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. In my opinion it is a must watch even if you don't watch anime. 5 stars
