Code Geass - Lelouch of the Rebellion R2
One year after the incidents of the first season and the failure of the Black Rebellion, headed by Zero's Black Knights, Area 11 has been demoted by the Emperor of Britannia to the rank of a Remedial Area territory. This has resulted in the Empire enforcing harsher rulings and punishments on Area 11 and beginning a thorough crackdown on the Black Knights, arresting several of its members and shutting down its operations. The Empire is also at serious tensions with two of the other major world superpowers, the EEU, that has been fighting a lengthy war against it, and the Chinese Federation, which itself seeks to conquer Area 11 without fighting a war.

Season 2 of Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion.
Adapted into the manga, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.
Virtually a rehash of the first season's first episode which left me wondering what the F' happened to the storyline until the end. I hope that the rest of the series doesn't clone the last season.
I haven't seen the first half yet though now that I've seen this, I feel a lot more excited to do so...
I like the style but the characters aren't too well developed. The plot has no real surprises, and the setting is the usual oversimplified black and white product of writers who hate clutter their stories with sympathetic villians.
I'm at episode 9 of the series. I've been far better watching this in RAW and then subbed, than I did with the first series. In the first act i maybe cared to watch 3 episodes subbed. But with CG R2, i've been watching the raw early in the morning and then the sub later in the day, for every episode. The story is flowing much better, and keeps my attention, and I have not once just watched it to here FukuJun talk. XD Yes, the first act was that bad, IMO. Tons of fanservice, and it still get shocked and surprised at least once per episode. I have at least one favourite scene in each episode so far too. And on top of all that, there is Karen. What's significant about her? For one I adore her. I don't like many female characters at all. But Karen's personality, and kickass attitude sells her for me.
