#ThrowbackThursday SPECIAL – Code Geass R2

Special delivery! Another anime edition of #THROWBACKTHURSDAY. CODE GEASS R2 picks up the madness where the first season leaves off. However, traveling down the rabbit hole becomes more chaotic than ever

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2

Creator: SUNRISE

Original Run: April 2008 - September 2008

Another sequel!? They say that good sequels are built upon the success of the previous series. Great sequels blow the original out of the water. R2 is a fine example of how to expand on a universe. LELOUCH, SUZAKU, KALLEN, CC and most of the characters are back and every character goes through a significant change. The world's ideals also change with the time and more about the shady history of BRITANNIA is revealed.

MORE TECHNOLOGY!? Even the technology advances in the series! The writers found a way to top themselves. There's even a lesson to be learned in using technologywho knew you can teach life lessons from anime!?

MIND = MORE BLOWN!The series takes the madness of the original to a whole new levelin the first few minutes you'll be saying, "WTF!? LELOUCH HAS A BROTHER!?" The secrets reveal themselves one by one. It plays out like nothing I've ever seen before and the ending is fitting of a fine SHAKESPEAREAN play.

Again, if you haven't watched the series: DO SO IMMEDIATELY! R1 and R2 are available from Sunrise.
