Editorial Reviews

On August 10th of the year 2010 the Holy Empire of Britannia began a campaign of conquest, its sights set on Japan. In the span of one month the island nation was conquered. As a dominion of the Empire the newly acquired territory was renamed Area 11. The rights of its citizens were severely limited and an economic depression followed for the Japanese, now known as Elevens. Just as things seemed at their bleakest one man chose to stand up and fi ght, the masked crusader Zero. Leading his Order of Black Knights, Zero instigated a full scale revolution against Britannia culminating in one fi nal battle, the Black Rebellion. Heavy casualties were seen by both sides but ultimately Britannia stood the victor resulting in Zero's execution. And thus was history written. The year is now 2018. With Zero dead and the remnants of the Black Knights being swept up by the Britannian forces, a forced state of peace settles over Area 11. The rights of the Elevens remain limited but with no one to lead them and the defeat during the Black Rebellion hanging over them, the Japanese people remain under the boot of Britannian oppression with no hope to overcome.

The series from the storyline right down to the DVD menu is spectacular. However, I like collecting the box sets and was looking forward to what this one had to offer. Sadly I was shocked to see I got a paperboard sleeve with a single DVD case and a manga book inside. I figured a limited edition would come with more. The previous box sets came with two DVD cases, a manga book, audio episode, and a soundtrack. This review is solely about the box set and not about the series. I hope others will take the time to see what a great storyline this series has to offer. I was just disappointed in the overall box set of the R2 Part 1 Limited Edition.

Its been one year since the Black Rebellion and the death of Zero. Lelouch is living the life of an average high schooler together with his little brother Rolo and.... huh? It seems that Lelouch has completely forgotten not only Nunnally, but also his identity as Zero. Caught in an attack by the Black Knights, Lelouch meets with a mysterious women named C.C., who reminds him of who he is and of his true purpose.....

I was so confused when I started this season. I had to pause the episode and make sure there wasn't an OVA or something I was missing. But explanations come by the end of the episode and we get right back into the rebellion. And wow, the rebellion actually goes somewhere. I had high expectations from the first season of Code Geass, but I was still a little worried about being let down. But no, this season not only met my expectations, but exceeded them. It does have a lot more battle scenes than the first season, which I found a little boring, but the plot moves right along and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I don't know the last time I was so excited about a show/movie. I even had trouble sleeping at one point.

The ending seems to get mixed reviews from most people. I thought it was phenomenally done, but I can see why some people might not enjoy it. However, the series is just too good to miss, so forget about the ending and just watch the show!

One warning though. This is set 1 of 4. Hopefully one day they will release a boxed set, but until then prepare to sink some money into this show if you want to own it.

UPDATE 1/16/12 - Bandai is downsizing and will no longer release new DVDs after Febuary. They will continue to manufacture and release DVDs already available until their license expires. BUT LUCKY FOR US!!!!

Code Geass is one of my favorites of all time, and every episode of R2 ramps the intensity higher and higher. The characters grow so much, often in surprising or terrifying ways, while the animation/music never drops in quality. Even the way it starts off throws you off balance if you remember the cliffhanger at the end of the first series, and it's all addictive.

However, the *only* limited edition feature in this box set is the bonus manga, so if you're not into the alternate universe Geass storylines with slightly different styled artwork, I wouldn't recommend it. I don't own the other edition, but the runtime is exactly the same and the only thing listed under "limited edition features" on my box is the manga. The Limited Edition discs come in one case (with the manga filling the empty space in the sleeve, which makes it hard to shelve if you want to keep the sleeve unless you let the manga stay there), and I don't own the other edition so it's possible that the other one has two cases contained in each sleeve.

But honestly the Limited Edition is not worth the extra money since if you really wanted the bonus manga you could buy it separately with the other edition. And your total price would probably still be cheaper.

Now i haven't actually bought this yet, but i have seen the whole series, and i'm hesitant on buying this for one reason....they're so expensive!! I remember buying the COMPLETE first season for the same price just ONE of these volumes (and there are four volumes in total) costs. Although i would like to hurry and complete the series, i don't want to spend 30 bucks a pop for each volume, i wish they would just release a "Code Geass R2 the complete second season" or something.

I love the series so anything about it I favor it and it being in good condition makes me love it even more. I would recommend this to people who loves Gundam it is similar being the same genre but there is differences to it as well.

I am a fan of the Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion series and I was excited when I found this. I bought it from FRL at a good price. It came in the mail just four days after I purchased it online. I would recommend this product for anyone who is a fan of Code Geass.

Zero is back better than ever. These episode are really well done and prove that the author have not lost is touch. If you have not started watching code geass before do not start here code geass as one of the best character developement ever and watching all the change all the lead made (especially poor suzaku yes i said it i actually understand suzaku a little now) in the first season is very important toward understanding they view on the world. For some reason the first season is cheaper and include way mor contant with the dvd. but in my opinion these episode are worth getting just for the quality of the anime itself.
