Might as well of been called Code Geass: The story that didn't really need Geass in it to work ( aka: would've worked better without the use of Geass )

by -

The way the Story went, it could've been completely written than someone said,



well maybe we really should have some people in it be able to use Geass in order to use Code Geass in the Title.



So they went back in and added it into the story-line...







This was a side story that appears to have taken place between R1 and R2, and that's fine.







And I thought the story would've worked just fine and been even more believable if Geass use by a couple of the



main characters wasn't part of the story.



( since to me it seemed to of been forced into the story )







So other than all that, I liked it!

A Great and Different Perspective of Code Geass

by -

This show take place in between season 1 and 2 of Code Geass make sure to watch both seasons of the original show before this to avoid spoilers.







First thing this show does not have the grand strategy and tactics that the original has and I don't dock it for that, the reason the original had that was because of Lelouch, this show however focus on a group of EU soldiers just trying to get out of the battle alive. The show has the drama and intrigue of the original and does not branch to the greater Code Geass universe much but it does introduce some new characters in the more mystical side of the series and there is plenty of small details to hit at other parts of the show both of which any fan of the series will definitely enjoy.







So to sum it up this is show is different from the original but I believe that is still true to what makes Code Geass, Code Geass, the world, themes, and relationships between characters that can pull your heart strings.

Code Geass Akito

by -

First and foremost, this isn't a third season. And it will never fill in that void. While it does contain a few memorable faces from the original series - with significantly more important roles than assumed - this is very much Akito's story. If you're looking to learn a little bit more about the world Geass takes place in and have the focus moved elsewhere, this will do just that.







Presentation-wise though, this OVA once again stands out a bit when compared to the original series. Gone are the grandiose speeches, bombastic performances, over-the-top schemes (well...save for one, from a certain over-the-top someone), and a booming score. Instead, you'll be presented with a darker tone, a more atmospheric and somber tone, and plenty of angst and psychotic young men. Thankfully, the story, action and performance keeps it from becoming a self-parody.
