Code Geass: Chronological Order

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 are the two original series that show Lelouch‘s quest to take over Brittania. Neither the OVAs nor the movies add extra content based on the R1 and R2 timelines.

However, if you want to experience all the alternate timelines, then Akito the Exiled movies and Lelouch of the Resurrection should be on your watch list. This is the order in which you can watch Code Geass.

Code Geass

Code Geass is set in an alternate reality in which Britain conquered the rest of America. Thus, the Holy Britannian Empire became the world's largest superpower, covering one-third of the world. The story follows Lelouch Lamperouge, the eleventh prince of the Empire, who develops a hatred for the emperor of Britannia and the entire imperial establishment. 

After an encounter with a mysterious young woman named C.C., Lelouch gains the power of Geass, granting him the ability to force anyone to do what he wishes. With this ability, Lelouch finally has enough power to begin his battle against the Britannian Empire.
