About Code:Breaker Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Complete Series

Code:Breaker Limited Edition set contains episodes 1-13 of the anime directed by Yasuhiro Irie.

Rei Ogami doesn't have a problem with killing. As a Code:Breaker - a super-powered assassin employed by a secret government organization - he works outside of the law, existing in the gray area between right and wrong. When Rei gets an assignment, criminals are cremated in a blaze of blue fire. That is, until a classmate named Sakura witnesses his fatal flames in action and makes it her mission to keep him from killing again.

As Sakura becomes entrenched in Rei's world of cruelty, mayhem, and violence, the line between good and evil begins to blur. When another Code:Breaker goes rogue and the remaining assassins assemble, murder might be the only way to make things right.

Average at best

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.

Code Breaker....

Who are the Code Breaker?
Code Breaker is organisation team to fight/stop evil there ten people in the group every class have different abilities metal, fire, wind like elemental abilities there a twist in the anime I just don't want to spoil for many others.

Thougth Episodes With No Spoilers
I over all the quality of the episodes
I think if you watch it in blu ray it will look amazing

Characters
This one is very important for me that each character don't have much of a good personality because it's really hard to judge on their appearance and how they look or how they act tell you that honesty characters act random in time basically you have to figure out the character if code breaker had season 2 then characters have more screen time knowing what kind of purpose that they had for being coming a code breaker to fill in the gap.

Cool concept, too bad you just don't care

by -

Well, the musical score by Takayuki Hattori is great. And that's about it. Oh, the animation is nice. That's another thing.

Everything else (characters, plot, etc.) is sadly either underdeveloped or actively irritating (like our leads). The concept of the show is solid and it's probably handled better in the source manga, but the anime adaptation lurches between being passable to being outright annoying. When our heroine is constantly pulling the "if you kill them, you're just as bad as they are!" card, then you know you're in trouble.

The Funimation collector's box is perfectly fine, the usual two Blu-ray cases containing Blu-ray and DVD copies of the series housed in a sturdy art box. The transfer is crisp, audio is solid and special features are nonexistent.

In the end, just skip this one and go read the (hopefully better) manga if one is curious. Oh and give Hattori's "way too good for this show" music a spin. Or stream. Or whatever people do nowadays.

It's boring

This show was one that was a struggle to get through because it just doesn't grip you in any appreciable way. The characters are for the most part flat with very little in the way of any growth. The animation is fairly good though.

Burn to Nothing!!

by -

Code: Breaker is a pretty decent show. It's got good quality animations and artwork. The story is decent for what it is, although a little simplistic. The story is about a girl who happens to witness a boy burning a crowd of people alive. A promising start, but it ends up getting a little bogged down in Naruto syndrome. The two main characters clash over core beliefs, the bad guys have good reasons for what they do no matter how horrific and the power of friendship overcomes all...even in the face of imminent death. They kinda backslide a bit and the point they try to make is a little unclear. Overall I give it a passing grade 6-7/10
