EYE FOR AN EYE, TOOTH FOR A TOOTH, EVIL FOR EVIL..... I AM THE SAME AS THOSE I HUNT 1 July 2014
By MyD -- The Viewpoint - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
OR MAYBE EVERYONE JUST NEEDS A HUG! (a reference to a couple moments in the show)

Excellent animation and an engaging story make this an interesting anime to watch, though it might not quite reach classic status.

Sakura is the most popular girl at school and seems to be special in just about every way. Everyone at school wants her or wants to be her. One night she is attacked by local gang members and witnesses a kind of supernatural execution as a boy with blue flame intervenes to save her. This event brings her into the orbit of Ogami, part of a secret order called Code Breakers. Sakura realizes that he was intervening on her behalf, but also realizes that he is a killer. These Code Breakers are sort of avenging angels who destroy evil people to protect the innocent. Ogami joins Sakura's school in order to watch her and ensure that she does not reveal his secret. Conversely, Sakura develops a wary relationship with Ogami so that she can somehow stop his destruction, preaching that it is not necessary to kill to stop evil.

Ogami fully accepts that the nature of his role makes him as evil as those he destroys. He can be evil and threatening, even to Sakura as their relationship advances. But, Sakura (as the ultimate good), sees something redeemable in Ogami's character. Numerous other Code Breakers with different powers are introduced. A greater conflict emerges as the controlling organization called Eden is revealed along with how the Code Breakers are developed. Furthermore Eden has enemies, including a rogue Code Breaker called Hitomi who was formerly the leader of the Code Breakers and the most virtuous of them all. Sakura also seems to have some special power and it is revealed that she is something called a "Rare Breed". Who is Eden? What is the Rare Breed's role in this struggle of good vs. evil vs. really evil? What could possibly cause Hitomi to go rogue?

Generally all the questions are answered and the story is engaging. However, there are many story tangents that are left hanging and not all the attributes of the major characters are explained. This is not uncommon in Anime of course. But I did feel it held this story back from being something greater. As usual, there is a high school setting and everyone gets a little bent out of shape when it appears Sakura is off-the-market because of her relationship with Ogami. There some exaggerated high school dramas that are silly and out of character for the darker subject matter. I am not saying that Anime doesn't often get silly. But, in this case it didn't seem complimentary to the story. I suspect it was included to juxtapose the triviality of high school worries compared to the life and death struggles going on outside. There is no fan service in this show. However, there were a few breast grabbing moments that also seemed a little out of place. I am not saying I don't appreciate fan service as I own shows like Ikki Tousen. The moments were just a little comedy relief in this case.

I do recommend this show and some may connect more closely than I did. I suggest trying it as a rental or download somewhere before you buy.

Overdone Story Line, but still Decent 31 Dec. 2014
By Beth Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Not complaints about the actual box set, but the show wasn't exactly impressive. With only thirteen episodes "Code Breaker" manages to give you a solid story that actually is concluded by the end, but the entire show feels a little rehashed. Like many other anime, the main villain is an ex-good guy who believes he has been wronged and the protagonists are have strange powers and are part of a secret government sanctioned assassin team. One thing that "Code Breaker", does differently is that is doesn't try to justify the character's actions as justice, or pass them off as the right thing which I found very refreshing. Overall, it's a decent series that I would recommend maybe watching online before purchasing the set to see if you really like it. Also, i would suggest watching it subbed since the dubbed version has quite a bit of coarse language in it, especially for a TV-14 show.

Average at Best 9 Dec. 2014
By Winston D. Jen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
The tagline for this anime brings to mind gruesome moral dilemmas and criminals brought to justice using questionable methods a la TV's Dexter. While this is how the show operates on the surface, the remainder of the show revolves around a dull villain with excessive screentime devoted to his paper-thin personality and history.

The other Code: Breakers do have their own personalities, to the show's credit. It would have been better if three or four episodes were tacked on to the show's length (currently a mini-season of 13 episodes) and used to flesh out the other independent hitmen. Of course, original superpowers would be a bonus, but the creators couldn't be bothered with that.

Add to this mess one of the dullest and most irritating heroines and you get something that's better off omitted unless you're completely bored and need something to fill a weekend.
Stylish supernatural thriller!!! 25 Jan. 2015
By Allengrider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I bought this anime from the funimation website on clearance for only $14.99! I'm currently on episode 2 and the animation so far reminds me of old school anime like Yu Yu hakusho. One night on a bus ride home, Sakura witnesses Rei Ogami incinerate multiple individuals in a close by field. On the very next day, he shows up as a new student!! Convinced he's the one she saw, sakura confronts him demanding an answer. However, he reveals no injury or burn of his left hand. So who is this mysterious new classmate and why has he targeted sakura's school to attend? I eagerly await the coming episodes!

Good! Good! 11 Sept. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
very good shows... a lot parts are unanswered questions however I'm hoping there will be other season of it. It is pretty unique and different than usual fantasy anime. It is well made anime. I like the characters develops and I also like a idea how they develop the storylines.
