There was another one on the shelf in Kinokuniya but it was around 40 SGD (and I’m not rich), so I didn’t buy that but instead, I got myself this – Code Geass: The Complete.
What makes up the thickness of the book is mainly the episode coverages for the series and the screenshots plus some artwork in it. Well, my intention of getting such a book was basically to find reference pictures for my upcoming cosplay of Zero during the World Cyber Games, which is around August. And also, Maly’s gonna do Zero as well. However, we’ll be doing different versions of Zero. He’ll be doing the season 1 version while I’ll be doing R2’s. So yeah, look forward to a chibi Zero soon. ^^;
Sadly, the language of the book is in Japanese. So, I can’t really tell you accurately what the book is/might be saying but my inferences are more or less there.
Episode guide: Stage 01-25
CODE GEASS World & Chronicle
The Interview with Jun Fukuyama, Takahiro Sakurai, Yukana and Ami Koshimizu
Main Staff & Main Cast
Other than the episode guides, there’s a tonne of character, environment and mecha designs, and a interview section with the seiyuus as well. The former really makes one wonder how much the Sunrise staff spend hours sitting and drawing.
Here’s 2 interesting stuff I saw in the book. Firstly, the book has this “Geass Count” thing in the epsiode guide which tells you how many times has Lulu activated his Geass on people and making them look like complete dogs, obeying to his desires. Or rather, that’s what I think it is about. If I am correct about this, then when it was the 31st time that Lulu used his Geass on Euphemia was the last time he could have control over his Geass. And it was the time a massacre princess was born. ._.v
Also, did you know that the moblile suits we see rollerblading around are actually named “Knightmare Flames” instead of the “Frames” that fansubbers have been using in CG. They just got owned. About time they make a version 2 of Season 1 and 2 episodes. ^^;
Yep, so basically that’s it for CG: The Complete. It’s a cool graphic book to have and if you don’t have it but like to get one online, do it here. It’s way much cheaper than my $28.90 so I strongly recommend ordering online. Now, just saying that makes me abit sad. Damnit.

P.S. Sorry with the lack of updates, I’m currently very busy with drawing/colouring my blog mascot and keeping my ass safe from the wrath of my teachers by completing my holiday assignments. In addition, Panther, Gordon, and some of the RIUVA people are getting interviewed by a news reporter tomorrow. I’ll be getting some info on that. And yes, you did see the words “blog mascot”, so stay tuned!
