I won't base my review on the series, it's a fantastic must see for all anime fans, the Blu-rays themselves are of nice quality, plenty of extras and then menus work surprisingly well on my ps3. My only complaint for the release is the censorship of all the Pizza hut sponsorship; there's a reason some call it Code Pizzabutt and it's just not same experience without the ridiculous amount of product placement.

Do not be fooled by the stock image on amazon. The Blu-Ray box is far thinner than the one displayed. It looks to be of a high build quality and the quality of the footage itself is fantastic. 25 episodes are spanned over two discs. As this is supposed to be based from the Japanese Blu-Ray masters it could possibly have the Pizza Hut images unedited but I have not check that far yet. I bought the Anime Legends Code Geass on DVD and Blu-Ray quality aside I prefer this one.

Great first season, can't wait for the next one. Lovely box and case art but the ending may leave some wanting more.

There are only a handful of animes that I would consider a true Masterpiece and Code Geass is one of them. Everything in the series just works... the main character is probably one of the coolest characters of all time and his female counterpart isnt far off the mark either...
It has a GREAT plot and well thought of idea that can rival shows like Death Note
A lot better mecha action scenes than any you would find in a Gundam series
and Very Strong Characters and most of their developments has been handled extremely well

The art is also beautiful with a lot of detail on the characters, CLAMP at its BEST and several soundtracks are sure to stay in your mind for a long time

An entire season for this amount of money is just a bargain
Even if you have seen it already... you should definitely pick up this in Blu ray cos it's just so much better experience

Lets get this out of the way because I'm not going to focus much on the show itself but this particular release, Code Geass is fantastic and one of the very few Anime series of the last ten years I have really enjoyed. This pack with the full 25 episodes of the first series in a slim case is great value and not too hard on my increasingly limited shelf space! The picture and sound quality are solid and definitely up to par.

The biggest problem I have with this release is the subtitles. First of all Kaze continue to force the language options on their releases. You can switch only from the title and pop up menu however if you want English with subtitles or Japanese without, tough. There is really no good reason to lock the subtitles. The subtitles themselves are white with black border which isn't the worst scheme but can sometimes be hard to read (personally I much prefer yellow on black) though this isn't that big a deal. The text encoding itself has some issues with quotation marks displaying as a random chain of characters. For reference I'm viewing on a PS3, I can't say for sure if this problem occurs on all players. It doesn't happen too often but it is pretty poor in that just watching through should have shown this problem and it's been a persistent problem across multiple Kaze releases.

None of these things detract too much from the fantastic show, not enough for less than 5 stars. In Kaze's long history of howlers this is actually pretty good for them.

I've watched a couple of eps online and I really want to get the dvd. I have to ask question though, does the dvd have English subtitles? I am deaf so I need subtitles on everything. thank you. x

i watch anime but i never would have guessed such an anime that would touch my soul and as code geass. This show is soo amazing that sometimes i wish i never watched it so then i can relive those moments and that feeling of shock when i watched it the first time. This show is basically about an exiled prince named lelouch who start to create a rebellion against the holy Britannian empire after recieveing the power of geass from a mysterious girl called CC or C2. The characters are phenomenal lelouch isn't your typical good guy protagonist whilst he is good at heart especially with his motivation of creating the rebellion which is to create a peaceful world for his sister nunnaly he does tend to get his hands dirty making him a realistic character. There is a huge cast of characters and most are likable. Theres a lot more to the story then what i wrote down on this paragraph so please if you are an anime fan hell if you just want to watch a an awesome TV series then this is the one to get dont second guess yourself this show is amazing and worth every penny. so what are you waiting for buy it now!!

Well, the show itself has no flaws and is very good; however I am skeptical about the product. The box is different in both art and size from the picture shown and the company responsible for it only have 361 likes on Facebook, so I'm not sure if I bought an official product as I can't find the one I own on eBay. It also says on the back, "Licensed for private home viewing in France." So the product is a French version? Yet it only has English and Japanese audio. A little odd I must say, but it's collaborated with Manga UK so I guess it must be genuine. Quality of the audio and video is definitely Blu Ray so I can't complain. There was a visual error on my brother Blu Ray player but that didn't happen on mine. The show is good though, recommended to all. Product is just a little suspicious, but for the price I'm ok with that.

Edit: Watched an unboxing of the blu-ray and it would appear that it was simply missing the slip case in terms of art. Not sure why it was missing the slipcase, but oh well.

Code Geass is an excellent mecha anime that earned its popularity through the quality of its story and characters rather than the amount of episodes it contains. You can get all 50 episodes for £25 or under, which is an absolute steal, so there's no excuse not to buy it. It's even cheap on Blu-ray, too... Do I seriously need to say anything else?

First off let me say that this anime is one of the best i've ever seen and if you are on the bench about getting it, get it. You will not be disappointed. (4 stars is for the seller not the anime )

The seller (666 Media) delivered this product in the wrong packaging (Without the slip cover) meaning a lot of the art and information about the show was missing (Quite a disappointment if you like anime art as much as i do) The packaging on the product i received said it only contained 12 of the 25 episodes. After contacting 666 Media they replied quickly and said it was a packaging defect, which it was. They did offer a full refund it i wasn't happy with it as well. A very courteous company indeed and i am happy that the problem was resolved quickly but it would have been nice if they could have stated on the main page here on Amazon that there may be defects in packaging to stop the problem from occurring in the first place.
