Trying to escape his fate, he does good deeds in order to avoid becoming a yokai, despite his grandfather’s wish that he succeed him as the Third Head of the Nura Clan.

With many wanting to remove him from that position, he goes in search of allies and friends. Mangako: Anime Club will be viewing this title on January 16th in the Schmidt Gallery.

One day, he is caught up in a terrorist attack and finds a girl called C.C. (C2) and makes a contract to save his life, giving him the power of Geass, allowing him to command anyone to do whatever he wants, whether it is to live, to die, to fight, or to dance around in the streets – though first he must obtain direct eye contact. He chooses to use this power to find who killed his mother, as well as to destroy the Britannian Empire, and to create a better world where his younger sister, Nunnally, can live happily.
