Really ? How so ?

I found similarities between Death Note and Code Geass and I keep thinking of DN while watching CG .
Lelouch and Light are both as manipulative and maybe just as smart . Suzaku , clearly , is different from L .
I think DN is better but I haven`t finished the 1st season of CG yet so ... ignore that . =/

Lelouch and Light both have special abilities. (Geass and Death Note)
Lelouch and Light are very intelligent.
Lelouch and Light both have alter egos. (Zero and Kira)
Lelouch and Light both want to make a better world. (Nunally for Lelouch and just in general for Light)
Lelouch and Light both have a "contractor" in a way. (CC and Ryuk has to stay with Light until he dies)

There's not many similarities., there's a few, but nothing really that important.

similarities is only in the hero

they have huge difference


Lelouch - a good guy, uses his geass for his own and others good

Light - bad guy, power freak, kills for his own sake[ first, criminals, but he also killed the good guys, the police ]


the only similarities is that the main character has the power to change the world

Light just kills people, Lelouch kills people who wants to kill him, so Lelouch is more of a God than Light

Light is God because everyone fears him


Here is also what I noticed


Lelouch doesn't really want to kill Suzaku, and Suzaku never really want to kill Lelouch

Suzaku intentionally missed Lelouch to catch him, survive, and for lelouch to live being a normal student

while Light intentionally want to kill L

In this case:
Lelouch Lamperouge is Yagami Light,
Suzaku Kururugi is L
and Misa Amane as in C.C.

Lelouch gets super power then starts to think of himself as God of justice, just like Kira but in a different way.
& Suzaku wants to stop him by all meanings, just like L wanted to stop Kira.

I think that Code Geass is in a way very similar to Death Note and by that im sure that the out-come of Code Geass will be very similar to Death Note.

Will Zero have the same fate as Kira did, or will it turn around this time? We'll see when the time comes...

-suzaku? L? NO!!!!! FAR FROM IT!!!!!! L IS SMART!!!! SUZAKU IS DUMB AS DIRT!!!!!
-well CC might live lelouch but she's not so incredibly open about it
-no he doesn't, lelouch only cares about nanaly's well being and killing charles, freeing japan is just a bonus
-if he wanted to stop him, he'd kill him, like a normal person, not sell him out for a promotion, he doesn't want to stop zero by all means, he just wants to be knight of one

and do you want to know the reasons lelouch is far from light's character

light
-sees everybody as a tool
-has a god complex bigger than god's
-killed his best friend first chance he got
-never regretted a single thing he did
-is doing it all for himself

lelouch
-although he sees most people as tools he does see some people as genuine friends (student council)
-has no god complex, he may be a bit cocky but he knows he isn't all powerful
-had many chances to kill suzaku conveniently after he found out he piloted the lancelot, but didnt take any of them (well of course that changed in R2 because suzaku sold out lelouch for a promotion, used nanaly to try to blow lelouch's cover etc.... so at this point they aren't really friends anymore so next chance lelouch gets he's gona kill suzaku then pee on his corpse then throw it in a necrophiliac convention)
-regretted many things he did
-is leading the rebellion for nanaly (AKA not for himself)

I can keep listing reasons if you want me to....

That's just grasping at straws man. First of all Lelouch does not think he's god. He does not want to be God of the world unlike Light who wants to control the entire world. Hell he's not even asking to be leader of the new Japan! Lelouch starts a rebelion so he can make Japan a better and happier place for his sister. Light kills people just because he woke up one day and was bored.

And as far as Suzaku and L go... that's about all they have in common. But how many anime antagonist characters don't have that same characteristic??? L is smarter and more justified in what he's doing... trying to take a killer off the streets. Suzaku is just a misguided and naive fool who thinks he can change an entire empire by obeying their every whim.

Misa is NOTHING like C.C.!!! For one... C.C. is a god of some sorts... she can't be killed by normal means. Misa is a regular old girl who can be killed with pretty much anything. C.C. is not in love with Lelouch in the sense that makes her crazy, unlike Misa who is. Misa gives Light no powers what so ever.


Like I said grasping at straws. That's just taking minor details of animes and using them to compare them with each other. That really doesn't work all to well...

I agree, Code Geass is somewhat similar to Deathnote but definitely better. There is more use to geass who could give an absolute order than to a note who could only kill people or move people before they are killed.

Another thing is, don't compare L to Suzaku, the former has guts but physically weak, the other a super athletic one but lacks wits. Suzaku sides with the strong Britannian Empire to keep what he called 'peace' but L sided with what he called the 'truth' even if the world becomes his enemy. I might as well say that L is more like Lelouch than Suzaku.

Lelouch and Light are somewhat similar but Lelouch does it for his sister to live in a free world while Light for the sake of being a god who brings judgement. Both may be wrong but you could see how much of their motives and insights differ.

Not even close. At first, there is similaries between them, but Death note is several times darker than Geass.

They don't Code geass is way more better than death note


i agree...

but its kinda the same in a way...i dont think Lelouch is trying to be the god of justice..he just used that word so that people would join the Black knights since his real purpose is to find out who killed his mom and to make the world better for her sister

and Lelouch is different from Light since...
lelouch has a conscience unlike Light
lelouch wont kill if necessary
lelouch protects people important to him, light doesnt care about his family
lelouch doesnt like using geass on his friends

and in my opinion Lelouch is cooler than light....


and i think C.C. is more of a ryuk character than a misa coz'...
ryuk likes apples= cc likes pizza
ryuk doesnt die when shot= same with CC

i dont think L and Suzaku are the same since...

suzaku is an annoying character while L is awesome...
suzaku's IQ is probably less than half of L's
suzaku is hated by most (including me...go Suzaku must die fan club!!) while L is loved (he has fan clubs)...

Code Geass is more exciting than death note since i think the anime came out before the manga so its more exciting since you probably wont get spoilers from the manga...*i dont like CG manga though* and Lelouch's next move is unpredictable since he can use almost anything to his advantage



hopefully Lelouch doesnt end up dead like Light....

They really are not very similar! The only reason they are constantly compared, is because Deathnote is such a bizzare anime, that Code Geass is the only show even remotely like it. Besides the thinking aspect (which is even presented in different ways in the two animes) and the shallow similarities between characters, they are nothing alike.
