Wonderful mecha anime with characters designed by CLAMP. The visual is oh so beautiful. This limited edition tops my favorites to this day. It includes a hard box with awesome artworks, 2 DVDs, the anime OST, the manga (vol. 1), a CD with audio episodes, and characters booklets.

Just finished watching this a little while back -- I watched it on a legal streaming site (Bandai has their own YouTube channel) in Japanese, and did I ever enjoy it! I ordered the special editions that Bandai put out a little while back, and received the final installment today in the mail. I was so happy (I'm such a nerd)!

It's quite a dark series, that's for sure. Things don't go the way you expect them to, and it kept me guessing throughout -- that's quite an achievement nowadays, when so many anime are pretty generic. I know this one came out a little while back, but between the art and the story, I highly recommend it. And Bandai does a really nice job with their extras -- soundtracks, audio episodes, plenty of inserts... I'm duly impressed, I must say. I'm going to be buying R2 when it comes out as well, and from what I've seen it will be just as good as the first series.

This is sort of a *spoiler*, if you don't know the general gist of the story already - so don't read this paragraph if that's the case..... Lelouch kind of goes off the deep end somewhere around half-way through the first season. Kudos to the writers who could still keep the audience sympathetic with his character for another season and a half! I found myself smirking even though he turned into such a baddie -- I wonder if that would have been the case if his character design had been ugly... probably not. Darn those pretty boys by CLAMP!!!

*End of spoiler* -- all in all, this is a series I would definitely recommend owning yourself, it has good re-watch value between the twists and turns and it's beautiful artwork. And Bandai simply did an amazing release with the special editions -- it's the only way to go! And even though the English track is good, Lelouch is so much more theatrical in the Japanese version, so try that out too! Enjoy!

I absolutely love this show; CLAMP is a group of amazing artists, and this is proof of it. The moral and ethical questions this anime brings up is hard to find, but greatly appreciated (especially for a more mature audience). Yes, it does have giant robots, but it's definitely not the main point of the show--basically meaning that the mecha isn't totally overbearing--but I love the fantastical element it adds. The characters are very well developed--everything is well done actually, there was a very talented team of workers on this project, that's for sure.
This special edition is definitely worth the buy; it's a beautiful box, and it includes all these extras that you would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. If you love Code Geass, this is definitely something you want to add to your collection!

This anime is one of the best I have ever seen and the first to ever make me want to purchase it for myself. If you want suspense, action and great characters this is a must buy.

Special Edition Review Aug. 10 2008
By Austin Crotts - Published on
This is one of the better Anime's to come out in the states and get air time on TV. The show appears on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim due to it's graphic violence. I am sure though that if you are looking at getting this set you probably are already watching it. This is probably the best buy for getting the episodes. This set includes volumes 1 and 2 or episodes 1-9. The set also includes volume one of the Manga, OST 1, and what is best described as a radio show containing the characters on a cd. It also includes 3 booklets over the shows main characters with interviews from the creators. The case itself is sturdy with artwork on all sides and on the interior. If you live in a major city I would suggest picking this up from Best Buy as it is a little bit cheaper, not much though. If you are going to have it shipped than amazon would be the best bet.

Great Anime! Excellent box and extras! Faulty DVDs! Aug. 11 2008
By lesterf1020 - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful and amazing anime. Lots of excitement and drama and characters that live in all kinds of shades of grey. I truly enjoy this anime. The box set is excellently done with a very pretty box and loads of wonderful extras. I especially appreciated the manga.

So why the 3 star review? well this first pressing of discs appears to be defective. Bandai is experimenting with new copy protection and it causes serious problems for many DVD players. In particular seizures at episode 3 in disc 1 and episode 9 in disc2. That is provided that it works at all. People using blu-ray and in particular PS3 players appear to have much better success rates though.

The best anime I have ever seen July 30 2008
By Carl H. Myers - Published on
Verified Purchase
This anime series is quite simply the best I have ever seen. It is BEAUTIFUL - quality on par with Claymore or Deathnote - but beyond those, it is highly stylized and unique as well. The characters are developed and enticing, the plot blows your mind, the pace is so fast you can't blink, and rewatch value is high (I see more every time I watch it).

I have shown this series to several friends and nobody has failed to fall in love yet. The first season of this series grabs you and sends you on a non-stop roller coaster which ends in a season-end cliff hanger that will quite simply rip your soul from your body and hold it hostage until you get season two and the sweet loving embrace of it's resolution. Season two is currently (as of July 2008) being aired weekly in Japan and one can imagine will be available in the US eventually as well.

Long story short, if you don't own this anime, you are wrong. It is absolutely fantastic!

Death Note + Mechs = Epic win Nov. 2 2008
By Vince Mauer - Published on
I don't have the time to sit down and write a multi-paragraph review, but I'll state my opinions as briefly as possible. There is no such thing as a series for everyone, but if action, comedy, drama, and a deep plot with many twists and turns sound good to you, you're sure to be one of the many people who love this series. I've seen the whole thing and will attest to the fact that this is the beggnining of excellence. To anyone who has seen or read Death Note, this is essentially a combination of that, and a very well done mecha. As for the actual box itself, the dvds include the first 9 episodes of the series, there is the first of two soundtracks to the series (Excellent music also, by the way), the first drama CD, 3 informational books and an art book, not to mention the box itself, which is absolutely stunning. All of this together is an amazing deal, and I highly recommend picking one up. To anyone who does not know what a drama CD is, it is essentially extra back or side stories for the characters told through audio-only, like a radio broadcast of sorts, this adds even mroe depth to the series than already exists, and I love listening to it over and over. As I said earlier, there is no such thing as a series for everyone, but as far as I can tell, this one comes REALLY close, as nobody I've shown it to has disliked it. Happy Watching! :)

A rebellion to remember... June 28 2008
By L. Dancy - Published on
I have watched this anime on adult swim and I have loved it ever since. This is the story of a man who wages war against an empire ruled by his tyrannical father. Lelouch at a very young age was discarded by his father along with his sister and mother. Now he fights as the infamous Zero in order to bring down the empire and restore Japan to its former glory. Any anime fan should pick this set up because it has many fantastic characters with unique personalities rarely seen in recent anime. I fell in love with this anime on the first episode and cannot wait until this fantastic series comes on dvd.
