Naah.. don't think it'd be similar to DEATH NOTE.. It's really more like Gundam Seed! XD

& Code Geass is waaaay more exciting, while Death Note is just uber-smarts :3

but they're both good, period. :]

Well in both Death Note and Code Geass the protagonist objective is to carry out justice. Light justice is that evil must be punished and the punisher who decide their destiny is himself. I can see how it is very similar to Lelouch, except Lelouch is not as selfish. He struggle with the question "If there is an evil what will you do? Will you become a greater evil to supress that evil or carry out justice by sucumbing to that evil." In a way, Code Geass is more similar to Gundam Seed. Where they have to struggle with the question "Should I kill for justice(a better tommorow) or do nothing" The difference between lelouch and Light is that, Lelouch knows that what he is doing is wrong and many times in the anime he said he will end this as soon as possible, but Light believe that what he was doing is absolute. Lelouch take consideration of the ppl who are suffering from the evil but Light define evil himself.

light knows what he's doing is evil he admits it multiple times himself.
he just thinks that what he's doing is a necessity and what he's doing DOSE make the world much safer.

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


Your comparison of characters fails. Lelouch is far more human in mind than Light and isn't completely merciless. Suzaku has become a bit of a hippocritic jerk while L was just a random detective. C.C. and Misa...you'd have and easier time comparing C.C. to ryuk to be honest.

No way. They MIGHT use the same concepts for the writting (justice, evil, etc), but the plot, characters and the creation of a futuristic world in code geass is wayyyy better.
Now I was a fan from death note until I watched the last episode, after that, I just became one Yagami light supporter. Everything was fine when he killed L, maybe unexpected -to me at least-, but Kira had always the upper hand since he knew all the restrictions and abilities of his supernatural power. Then L's bootleg (aka Near), and Mello make their appeareance, I (if not everyone) could foreshadow the tragic ending that was being suggested at this point, I agreed to it in my head but i also hoped it would end with Light somehow cheating fate.Then it all comes down to this: After a master plan to kill everyone was carried out, and no one on the other side ever noticed for like 6- 7 episodes, they FUCKED UP the ending, i mean what the hell was that about:

Near- Giovanni found out this wasn't the note until the very last moment, and oh wait it was out of pure stupid luck btw, but not only that but also he managed to copy every single detail of it, even the worn out pages O.o (I was like -Sharingan Giovanni) , and that's why u lose and die miserably.

That is one ending i could never swallow, but that aside I mean that once we reached this point Light had already lost any human emotion and trait, he was a cold mass murderer that has lost it's way but still all the menal games were wasted to end up with a lucky move at the end.

Code geass is realistic in a more futuristic way, they focus the plot of justice in human emotions and how they can transform their characters which makes it better

no deathnote was a boring and stupid anime it was so predictable even kiras death was predictable. in death note the characters didn't have much depth so the reader chouldn't sympathise and understand the characters it was a piece of crap i chouldn't even bare to watch it. and the characters aren't similar at all suzaku is not the equivalent of L and lelouch is not the equivalent of kira the charcters are so diferently portrayed and the world in which they exist is soo difeent lelouch is getting revenge not going on a killing spree like kira and suzaku is trying to be a nice person because he feels bad he murdered his farther, hes not like L,L is way smarter than suzaku, hes deosn't have twisted ideals like suzaku, hes a realist more like lelouch.

The fact that all animes have similar plots and characters. I doubt that Death Note was even the first anime to have an "evil" protagonist.

it is true that many animes have a lot in common, but Code Geass and Death Note are very similar,
Lelouch and Light are identical, but Lelouch has heart, a human heart! And Light no, no Light/Kira
is a cold business-like man! Lelouch would never dare kill one of his friends for his success, and Light
would, in order for him to come out triumphant! Lelouch has that same stare, and laugh that Light does.
They use their brain, and they have something that makes them more powerful than a regular human.
I think that Lelouch is not gonna end up like Kira, Lelouch is fighting an imperialistic empire, and Light was trying
to do the impossible, and eliminate all the criminals, which required killing innocent people.

I think the Light and Lelouch are almost carbon copies of themselves, but thats about it.

both anime can kill u in an instant *almost* and they both kill u in an amazing way.

code geass: looks at you gives you a command and you dead

death note: light does his famous and 40 seconds later you are dead

in ways they are both good
