Code Geass Season 2 Review
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2
コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ (Kōdo Giasu: Hangyaku no Rurūshu)

Synopsis

On August 10th, 2010 the Holy Empire of Britannia began a campaign of conquest, its sights set on Japan. Deploying a humanoid weapon dubbed Knightmare Frame, Japan was quickly conquered, its rights and identity stripped away, the once proud nation now referred to as Area 11. Its citizens, Elevens, now forced to scratch out a living while the Brits live comfortably within their settlements. Pockets of resistance appear throughout Area 11, working towards independence for Japan, although without much success. However, the world's destiny changes as Lelouch, an exiled Imperial Prince of Britannia posing as a student, finds himself in the heart of the ongoing conflict. Through a chance meeting with a mysterious girl named C.C., Lelouch gains a mysterious power called Geass. Equipped with the power of the king, Lelouch may finally realize his dream of bringing Britannia down to its knees!

Overview

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 premiered on all Japan News Network (JNN) member stations (like MBS and TBS) on April 6, 2008, in the primetime anime timeslot. Prior to the series’ television broadcast, three private preview screenings of episode 1 were held on March 15 and March 16 in Osaka and Tokyo respectively, which was attended by the series’ Japanese voice actors as well as a pool of 3800 randomly selected applicants. On April 15, 2008, the last 6 minutes of the then-unaired third episode was accidentally posted onto the Internet due to an error by Bandai Channel, Bandai’s online broadcast channel and the series online distributor, in the midst of testing a system preventing illegal online uploads.

TL;DR Review

The second season of Code Geass, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2, continues where the first season left off, but with a little time jump. It may be confusing at first but you will start to understand what is going on as more clue are dished out.

The animation and music are on par with the first season of Code Geass, which is to say they are great. The iconic songs this season are “O2” by ORANGE RANGE and “WORLD END” by FLOW.

The ending of this series feels really satisfying, though there is some debate about what really happens. I won’t spoil it for you. The first season was already amazing but I think this season even trump that.

I highly recommend both seasons of this series. Code Geass contains graphic violence and some suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.
