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!!!!Read more ›
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.

An essential for any fan who hasn't completed their DVD collection. If you want the full series, buy the season 1 and 2 box-sets, though. Read morePublished 22 months ago by pen name
