Fact. Code Geass is so much better. 1. It has better characters, not the best character(It is hard to beat L) but overall it has more superior characters. Especialy the main character, who is a lot like Light, except for the fact that he posseses Depth, far more awesomness, and is not a jackass. 2. It is actually clever. The characters in Death note were supposedly smart because they had great deduction skillz, but they would always come up with everything how it was, even though there are a million other possibilities, they would never come up with alternate scenerios. It was as if the writers were giving the characters hints. Code Geass is everything that Death note Tries to be in this aspect. 3. Story. Death note has a shitty fucking story. It had a good premise, but the only thing keeping it alive was the characters. Code Geass on the other hand has an amazing story. it is compelling and enticing and just strait up amazing. 4. The Geass is such a cooler thing the the Death Note. CC may not be as cool as Ryuku, but the Geass is still superior.
