On a lively December day at Ashford Academy, the students are joyously preparing for tomorrow’s school festival. However, the celebrations come to an abrupt halt when terrorists strike the academy. The students are taken hostage and put under lockdown as militant remnants of the Neo-Chinese Federation seize control of the school.

Little do the aggressors realize that among the student body are those with extraordinary powers, including the Geass-wielding Lelouch Lamperouge and Britannian soldier Suzaku Kururugi. To protect their school and restore the peace, Lelouch and the student council must band together again to bring about one last miracle.

It would be wise to watch Code Geass R1 & R2 before seeing this special, it will make a bit more sense.


"Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch - Kiseki no Birthday Picture Drama", is a picture drama that takes place after the final episode of Code Geass R2.

That may arise some questions, as it did with me.

Most of this special should entice laughter, especially at the beginning.
The very end tries its read more

I really like the original Code Geass series, so I was looking forward to this Picture Drama. I didn't have any experience with this genre yet, but I was still interested in it, because I was expecting glorious dialogues converted into a theatrical form. In short, I just had high expectations. But the expectations were not fulfilled, and in the end I didn't enjoy it at all. But why?

Honestly, the dialogues were terribly constructed and the characters did not resemble the real ones we know from the original series. Plus, the humor wasn't very funny at all, and I didn't laugh much. I didn't get read more

Now, before starting, this review contains spoilers for the actual main series of Code Geass, and of course, the short itself. (The short also has a huge spoiler, so watch Code Geass before watching this.)

They're not just pointless shorts, they either go deeper into the background of things from the main show, or are just fun little things with our favorite characters, which i find very enjoyable. Oh, and can't forget the fan service in some of them! But this one, this one isn't like those. It starts off as read more
