Introduction

Funimation released the Code Geass Blu-ray collection on August 28, 2018. I recently got my hands at it and wanted to give you my thoughts on it.

This review will cover

  1. Your options for buying Code Geass on Blu-ray,
  2. What you get in the collection,
  3. Pros and Cons,
  4. How the Blu-ray collections compare to Bandai’s DVD releases
  5. And finally, if the Funimation DVDs are worth buying?

Also, this is only a product review and not a review on the show itself if you want those: R1 Review and R2 Review

But now let’s start the Code Geass Blu-ray Review

The Different Collections of Code Geass on Blu-ray

Funimation has given us three ways to get the Code Geass Blu-rays.

Option #1 Season 1 a.k.a R1 or Season 2 a.k.a R2 separately.

Funimation released both editions in 2016. Unless you already have one of the seasons on Blu-ray it makes no sense to buy each one separately.

It will ultimately cost you more in the long run. Also, if you are curious all collections come with the same on-disc features.

So regardless of which option you choose just note that you are not missing anything.

Option #2 Code Geass Blu-ray Collection.

It might cost you more in the short run but it’s still cheaper than buying each season separately.

This collection comes in one Blu-ray case unlike the Collector’s Edition or the individual seasons.

The case is bare-bones and only for fans who just want to own the whole series.

Since this is going to meet most fan’s needs and is the cheapest option, I recommend this version the most.

Option #3 is Code Geass Blu-ray Collector’s Edition.

This expensive collection is a box set that has:
1. Blu-ray cases for R1 and R2
2. 16 artcards featuring artwork from CLAMP

This collection originally was fairly affordable and a worthy buy during its initial release. But now the collection has spiked in price and is no longer worth it. Since the on-disc extras do not change, unless you really want the artcards this collection is not worth it.
