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!

This is one of the better Anime's to come out in the states and get air time on TV. The show appears on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim due to it's graphic violence. I am sure though that if you are looking at getting this set you probably are already watching it. This is probably the best buy for getting the episodes. This set includes volumes 1 and 2 or episodes 1-9. The set also includes volume one of the Manga, OST 1, and what is best described as a radio show containing the characters on a cd. It also includes 3 booklets over the shows main characters with interviews from the creators. The case itself is sturdy with artwork on all sides and on the interior. If you live in a major city I would suggest picking this up from Best Buy as it is a little bit cheaper, not much though. If you are going to have it shipped than amazon would be the best bet.

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.

This is a wonderful and amazing anime. Lots of excitement and drama and characters that live in all kinds of shades of grey. I truly enjoy this anime. The box set is excellently done with a very pretty box and loads of wonderful extras. I especially appreciated the manga.

So why the 3 star review? well this first pressing of discs appears to be defective. Bandai is experimenting with new copy protection and it causes serious problems for many DVD players. In particular seizures at episode 3 in disc 1 and episode 9 in disc2. That is provided that it works at all. People using blu-ray and in particular PS3 players appear to have much better success rates though.

This anime series is quite simply the best I have ever seen. It is BEAUTIFUL - quality on par with Claymore or Deathnote - but beyond those, it is highly stylized and unique as well. The characters are developed and enticing, the plot blows your mind, the pace is so fast you can't blink, and rewatch value is high (I see more every time I watch it).

I have shown this series to several friends and nobody has failed to fall in love yet. The first season of this series grabs you and sends you on a non-stop roller coaster which ends in a season-end cliff hanger that will quite simply rip your soul from your body and hold it hostage until you get season two and the sweet loving embrace of it's resolution. Season two is currently (as of July 2008) being aired weekly in Japan and one can imagine will be available in the US eventually as well.

Long story short, if you don't own this anime, you are wrong. It is absolutely fantastic!

I don't have the time to sit down and write a multi-paragraph review, but I'll state my opinions as briefly as possible. There is no such thing as a series for everyone, but if action, comedy, drama, and a deep plot with many twists and turns sound good to you, you're sure to be one of the many people who love this series. I've seen the whole thing and will attest to the fact that this is the beggnining of excellence. To anyone who has seen or read Death Note, this is essentially a combination of that, and a very well done mecha. As for the actual box itself, the dvds include the first 9 episodes of the series, there is the first of two soundtracks to the series (Excellent music also, by the way), the first drama CD, 3 informational books and an art book, not to mention the box itself, which is absolutely stunning. All of this together is an amazing deal, and I highly recommend picking one up. To anyone who does not know what a drama CD is, it is essentially extra back or side stories for the characters told through audio-only, like a radio broadcast of sorts, this adds even mroe depth to the series than already exists, and I love listening to it over and over. As I said earlier, there is no such thing as a series for everyone, but as far as I can tell, this one comes REALLY close, as nobody I've shown it to has disliked it. Happy Watching! :)

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.

Season or series set?
Well, everyone is hoping there will be a bluray release, but with Bandai you can't count on it. The Anime Legends release of the complete first season, is due out February 8th of next year. Rightstuf already has it up for pre-order. Amazon does as well:

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
