"Amazing" doesn't even scratch the surface
21 January 2011 | by (Boston, USA) – See all my reviews

After watching the first season of Code Geass I was truly hooked. Not only was the series the embodiment of brilliant anime, but i also had a HUGE plot twist in the 4th to last episode and the ending only left you wanting for more since it left a lot of loose ends. Of course I had to see the second season, Code Geass R2, and it rocked my world. From the first episode of R2 you would think that it is just a rehash of R1 that doesn't do much original, but by the time that you reach episode 3 or 4, your jaw will have hit the floor and you will be in awe of this series' splendor. A lot of the similarities to series' like Death Note drop out completely in the second season and whole series takes on a grander, more political feel to the storyline. This most definitely is not a bad thing since this leads to the most complex, huge, and epic story in all of TV history. The creators of Code Geass stuck with the philosophy of "Try to put as much content/character development/action/story into each episode as possible" which gives the series a very swift feel that never drags along. This also makes is all the more shocking when an episode slows down for a couple minutes in order to accentuate a particularly important or tragic scene. Just like in R1, the cast of characters is absolutely enormous and by the time the final credits roll, a whopping 43 characters that you knew, connected with, and in-depthly learned about will be dead on the floor. And mind you, these are only the dead one, with another 50+ major characters that survive and that you also meet in great detail. In short, to support the great story, there is a mind-numbingly gigantic cast of fleshed-out, human, realistic characters. Everything else in Code Geass will simply appear to be like R1, just twice as amazing. The animation is tighter, the knightmares more deadly, the action more intense, and even the musical score is even better than the already amazing R1 soundtrack. Even the moral dilemmas the characters face are more powerful and by the end you will very much question the significance of war and how the evolution of war can affect people's lives. Going along with this, every conflict will have major characters, often friends, facing off against each other; a very intriguing twist that will have you not sure who really is the true antagonist in the end.

It can not be put more clearly than this: If you haven't seen Code Geass, the first season, watch it now and then come back to R2. If you have seen the first season, this might be the most important anime for you to watch. Truly a masterpiece.
