Code Geass is one of the most binge-worthy anime series out there. It has the perfect combination of both political strife, war strategy, and supernatural ability to provide a balanced storyline worth anyone’s time. It’s also incredibly interesting because we get to watch a lead character that seems genuinely good at the start of the anime slowly begin to make more questionable decisions over time. The idea that a lead character always has to be a good guy is a tad overrated, wouldn’t you agree?
Lelouch is a great character with an interesting background story that will always make you feel something for him. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, Guilty Crown, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, are anime that have complex main characters. It can be difficult to find valuable leading characters with this kind of complexity in their makeup. And no good thing can last forever, so if you’ve already finished watching Code Geass, you may want to go further down the rabbit hole. We’ve found 13 different series that should help fill the void that this anime left behind.
