Editorial Reviews

On August 10th of the year 2010 the Holy Empire of Britannia began a campaign of conquest, its sights set on Japan. Operations were completed in one month thanks to Britannias deployment of new mobile humanoid armor vehicles dubbed Knightmare Frames. Japans rights and identity were stripped away, the once proud nation now referred to as Area 11. Its citizens, Elevens, are forced to scratch out a living while the Britannian aristocracy lives comfortably within their settlements. Pockets of resistance appear throughout Area 11, working towards independence for Japan. Lelouch, an exiled Imperial Prince of Britannia posing as a student, finds himself in the heart of the ongoing conflict for the island nation. Through a chance meeting with a mysterious girl named C.C., Lelouch gains his Geass, the power of the king. Now endowed with absolute dominance over any person, Lelouch may finally realize his goal of bringing down Britannia from within!

Excellent! "CODE GEASS: Lelouch of the Rebellion" is just excellent!

It's been awhile since I watched an anime series and just enjoyed it from animation, art, mecha designs, music, character designs, storyline, etc. I may be a late bloomer when it comes to the fandom of "CODE GEASS: Lelouch of the Rebellion" but now I can see how this series has captured the attention of fans worldwide.

VIDEO & AUDIO:

"CODE OF GEASS: Lelouch of the Rebellion" is featured 1:78:1 Anamorphic Widescreen. The animation and video quality is colorful and digitally modern since it is a newer anime television release. What I love about the video quality is the sheer amount of people involved. Everyone with detail, buildings, mecha and the destruction has detail. The character designs based from CLAMP's character design concepts are just fresh and cool to look at. One of the coolest looking character designs in an anime mecha series without being a full-on mecha series. Very cool!

I watched the anime series on my 52' and then afterwards on my 24' LCD and video quality was just great from the character animation to the backgrounds. Because this series features so much moving around Japan, this series really featured so many things in each different scene. Again, I'm very impressed with how much went in creating a single episode.

As for the audio, the audio is English and Japanese stereo. For a television series, I was sort of expecting stereo sound but knowing some television series including Dolby Digital 5.1 on the DVD soundtracks, I was hoping that there may have been a Dolby Digital 5.1 track for Code Geass but the audio is stereo. Dialogue is clear and you can understand what the characters are saying.

Imagine a world where the Romans never conquered Britain, and Britain's natives created a vast world-spanning empire of their own. Their latest subjugation: Japan, now called Sector 11.

It's an interesting albeit unlikely idea for alternate-world scifi, and it serves as the basis for "Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion." The first two volumes of this intricate anime series take us right into the action, with only a prologue of the Britannian Empire's history as a buildup. And it doesn't take long for the complex storyline to get moving.

Schoolboy Lelouch Lamperouge tries to help out when a convoy crashes near his motorcycle -- but then HE gets hijacked instead. As the Britannian military and their Knightmares (hello, big mecha!) close in, Lelouch learns that he has inadvertently fallen in with a faction of Japanese freedom fighters. And he also finds that the convoy's cargo is not poison gas as the rebels thought -- but a strange green-haired girl.

But when the Britannian soldiers show up, the girl gives Lelouch the power of Geass, which forces anyone who hears him to do as he commands. Even kill themselves.

So Lelouch uses his new power to hijack one of the Knightmares and assists the rebels (via radio) in a counterattack. But then he uses it to get close to the Britannian prince Clovis, and reveals his true identity -- a presumed-dead Britannian prince, who wants to get revenge for the murder of his mother and destroy the cruel Empire. He starts with Clovis.

But when Lelouch returns to his swank boarding school, he finds that the Japanese freedom fighters may be closer than he expected.

When I first saw this series, I knew it was going to become a future classic. Code Geass is the story of one man's conquest to bring down a country.

On August 10th of the year 2010 the Holy Empire of Britannia its sights set on Japan and began a campaign of conquest. It took one month thanks to Britannias deployment of new mobile humanoid armor vehicles called Knightmare Frames to take over Japan. Japans lost it rights and its identity was stripped away, now being referred to as Area 11. Its citizens, now called Elevens, are forced to scratch out a living while the Britannians lives in comfortably within their settlements. Pockets of resistance appear throughout Area 11, working towards to free Japan from Britannia's rule. Lelouch Lamperouge, who's his real name is Lelouch vi Britannia, is an exiled Imperial Prince of Britannia who was disowned by his father after his mother was murdered. He and his sister Nunnally were sent to Japan before the war. Now consider dead, Lelouch was now posing as a student in a Britannian school. He soon finds himself in the heart of the ongoing conflict for Japan. Through a chance meeting with old friend named Suzaku Kururugi who was now an Britannian soldier, Leluoch meets a mysterious girl named C2, who gives him the power of Geass, the power of the king. Now endowed with absolute dominance over any person, Lelouch may finally realize his goal of bringing down Britannia from within and fulfilling his two wishes: to seek revenge for his mother and to construct a world in which Nunnally can live happily.

If you haven't seen this, You have to. It is a great show.

why is this rated pg-13? please help
There is some nudity, violence and one rather uncomfortable to watch masturbation scene. On the upside, you can at least fast forward through that last bit.

Glitches
i am in the same situation. i tried buying the boxed set twice and had that problem. On the page for the box set someone said that it might just be the first printing of the disc because of attempts to secure it from copy. i don't know but it's really annoying. If it is just the first printing... Read More
