What Anime is Lelouch From? The Iconic Anti-Hero Character

what anime is lelouch from

Every once in a while, we come across characters that would someday be the greatest in anime history. Such characters shine bright among the rare stand of truly brilliant ones. It is at times like this that the genius in character writing for writers is tested. With the right amount of twisty traits and balanced harmony of ethics, Lelouch vi Britannia was presented to us. Lelouch is far from being a generic anime protagonist. Perhaps the term ‘an anti-hero’ has never suited a character as well as it suits him. It is not difficult to attach to the character within the first two episodes. If you are still wondering who he is and what anime Lelouch is from, you have come to the right place. Let us begin with a quick character study first.

When it was stated that Lelouch is far different from a generic hero, I meant it. He recognizes the worth of power and uses it to alter things from the ground level. His philosophies differ in ways that you would be swayed to agree with his thoughts. He puts on a mask, becomes a hero, and when the time comes, he makes sure to bestow himself the justice he had bestowed upon other evildoers. Throughout the story, we would see him from different angles. Mostly as a caring older brother or a hero of justice, and sometimes as a friend and an enemy.

Let’s take a walk through the common questions asked: What anime is Lelouch from? Are Zero and Lelouch the same person? How did Lelouch die? How was he resurrected? Lelouch is one of those rare characters that can be discussed over and over again without being tired.
