Plot Summary: The side story takes place in 2017 a.t.b., around the time Lelouch took on the alter-ego “Zero” and built up his “Black Knights” rebellion army. The setting is in Europe, where the Euro Universe (E.U.) allied nations are being invaded by the overwhelming forces of the Holy Britannian Empire. On the verge of defeat, the E.U. army forms a special division known as “W-O″, of which a young pilot named Akito Hyuuga is a member. Layla Malkal , a former Britannian Aristocrat comes to the E.U.’s aid, commanding the “Wyvern” Knightmare corps comprised of Japanese teenagers. They recklessly plunge into a battlefield, where the survival rate is extremely low, at about 5% only. They fight for their freedom, and for a “home” to which they can return.

What I think: For a spinoff its not all that bad. At the beginning I was a little confused with the story. I wasnt sure if it was before, after or the same time that it was in the main series. Maybe that was just me because it has been a while since I saw code geass. I think this story relies a lot more on the mechas called Knightmares than the original series and since I’m not big mecha genre fan, it kind of dissapointed me. But that’s just my opinion. If you like mecha anime you are probably gonna like this series of 5 episodes. Well the fifth isn’t released yet.

Tell me what you thought.
