My Age Rating: 8: Some mature and fanservicey situations.
This picture drama offers side stories to several episodes of the first season, actually happening during these episodes chronologically speaking. It will give background information on certain characters, help develop side plots and give meat to the smaller matters and minor characters. There’s also some more development between Suzaku and Lelouch that is evidently of interest.
That said the main and only reason I see anyone watching this is if you’re a fan of the show and want more of it or if you really dig the characters and would like to see more of them and more on them. Aside from a few plot relevant matters, it is mostly made to add light humor and show some fanservice so I would recommend this to people who enjoy that sort of thing as well. If you haven’t watched the series itself yet, then I recommend looking up the episode numbers of this special and watching its episodes during your initial watch of Code Geass’ first season, I assume it could prove quite rewarding.
