Product Description

August 10th of the year 2010 the Holy Empire of Britannia began a campaign of conquest, its sight set on Japan. Operations were completed in one month, thanks to Britannia s deployment of new mobile humanoid armor vehicles dubbed Knightmare Frames. Japan s right and identity were stripped away, the once proud Nation, now known as Aera 11. Its citizens, Elevens, are forced to scratch out a living while the Britannians aristocrats live comfortably within their settlements. Pockets of resistance appear throughout Area 11, working towards independence for Japan.

ouch, an exiled Imperial Prince of Britannia posing as a student, finds himself in the heart of the ongoing conflict for the island nation. Trough 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 now finally realize his goal of bringing down Britannia from within!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy~ 12 Jun 2011
By Simple
A little bit about the product: It has both Japanese Audio and English Dubbed for those who prefer the dub. The extra features such as the picture dramas are available both in dub and sub, audio commentary is also very good and offers some fun trivia knowledge about the people involved in making the series. For those who have lived for subs, the DVD box set is great. Only thing probably missing is maybe a sheet that tells you which episodes are on which discs. (For people that have watched this series and want to skip the funny episodes it might have been good.)
Overall verdict of Box set: Amazing. It's everything you want in one place.

At the price that this is at, it's a bargain. 25 episodes and extra features (openings, endings, picture dramas, etc) would cost more if you buy the volumes separately.

The series itself: Great series, one that you can definately watch again and again. This series has some of the biggest plot twists ever and will probably leave you watching episode after episode until you finish the whole series in one go.
Overall, it is definitely an 'Anime Legend' and worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent buy 1 Jun 2011
Code geass is a great anime with a gripping story that succeeds in being both serious and funny. It brings together many of the best features of other animes (Death note, Gundam, Gurren lagann, etc...)so there should be something for everyone. This set includes all 25 episodes of the first season with Japanese audio commentary(English subtitles) on many of the episodes along with a few short picture dramas(English voice cast). Considering it is almost double for 12 episodes, in the single volume sets, [..] it is an Excellent price.

4.0 out of 5 stars All Hail Britannia! 18 Mar 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first watched Code Geass on Youtube and liked it. So. in a leap of faith, I decided to buy the product. Sadly, it took about a week to arrive, but as it was in the Chritmas season, I suppose that was to be expected. When the product arrived I certainly wasn't disappointed, though. All 25 episodes of Code Geass R1 were there in six discs. The packaging could have held two other discs, and they are quite hard to take out of the box. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the song subtitles had the Japanese lyrics (thumbs up to Beez Entertainment!), as I didn't think that any anime DVDs had this feature. There were also picture dramas, which are humorous short stories between episodes. The series itself takes place in 2017, in a war-stricken Japan (now renamed Area 11) which is now a territory of the huge Empire of Britannia. The primary protaganist is Lelouch vi Britannia, a young, exiled prince of Britannia now posing as a student with his blind and crippled sister, Nunnally. After Lelouch gets caught up in a 'terrorist attack', he meets a mysterious girl who gives him the power of the king, called Geass, which compels anyone to follow his orders. Armed with his Geass Lelouch takes on the identity of the masked demon Zero, who leads the Order of the Black Knights, who plan to liberate Japan and bring down Britannia. Lelouch also tries to find his mother's killer and buld apeaceful world where Nunnally can be happy. The series is often compared to Death Note in that it is based more on mind games and strategy than action, which it still has a fairly large dose of using mechas called Knightmares. The series also has an unbeatable soundtrack, and clear animation. Overall Code Geass has something for everyone, be it mind games, mechas, comedy and even a dash of romance and fan service. Despite the star off for the long delivery time, Code Geass (including R2, the sequel which has yet to be released in the UK) is still my favorite anime of all time. All Hail Britannia!

5.0 out of 5 stars Code Geass - Anime Legends [DVD] 11 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Directed by one of the most acclaimed anime directors Goro Taniguchi. In a world where Brittania rules absolute you can always find people who do not agree with this. Let the revolution begin stunning art work and a good story line that will keep you engrossed till the end.A great anime well worth watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good DVD Release 4 Mar 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Code Geass is a must buy for any anime fan and features great mecha action and character developtment. With that aside the actual dvd release is good but they used the American video for this release which result's in some pixelation in the video stream. Another thing is the subtitles are badly timed and change font a couple of times during the series. Even with these problems aside this release is pretty good but it does deserve better.

Clean Opening and Closing
Japanese Commentary
Picture Dramas
