And you know why? Because Code Geass doesn't have any of the stereotypical Shonen crap in it, unlike Gurren Fagann, Gayji, (Set FAIL For) One Piece etc. Because CG has an intelligent & unpredictable plot (almost as if it was written by Lelouch himself!). It doesn't have Gurren Fagann's faggotty GLfag fagboys in /a/. And (unlike Gurren Fagann) it's character designs aren't retina-melting uggos, because CG's character designers are CLAMP.
Get Gainax to redo GL with Sunrise's writers & CLAMP's character designs, then get back to me.
