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.

Despite that, the show is fun to watch, even though it's a Picture Drama.

In my personal opinion, Code Geass has some of THE BEST picture dramas out there. 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 ...

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.

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 ...
