Chapters: 20, Volumes: 5
The main story is about two characters Orpheus a terrorist and Oldrin a soldier in the Britannian military fighting in the Glinda knights.
And their journey between and after the events of the black rebellion.
This Manga has many references to the Wizard of OZ in the names of groups and people.
When You Should Read Them?
Read Oz of the Reflection after finishing Lelouch of the Rebellion (anime). As it recaps Lelouch of the Rebellion (anime) and starts right after the Black Rebellion.
Read Oz of the Reflection O2 after finishing Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 since this Manga takes place during R2 and will spoil parts of R2.
Do You Need to Read Oz of the Reflection?
If you are satisfied with Lelouch of the Rebellion R1 and R2 then no.
For reading other Code Geass Manga and playing Genesis:RE Code then you need to read this.
What’s My Take On It?
What’s interesting about this one is how they connect the events in this Manga to the main story without causing any continuity issues.
If you want a clear picture of what happened after R1 and during R2 then this one is a definite read. It adds new Geass lore, great characters, awesome KMFs.
Also much like Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion R1 and R2 there is fanservice in this one. A bit too much if you asked me but at least it’s not too distracting. I guess with Code Geass it comes with the territory.
There are some great action sequences and I enjoyed the story. Unfortunately, I could not read O2 online since it’s hard to find an English version. Instead, I saw a summary video on it.
An excellent story that hardcore fans will enjoy.
