    Love the game? You'll definitely love the anime!
    If you're a fan of the game, you'll definitely love the anime. The first episode was enough to sell me on Lupin (who I didn't really enjoy in the game), so it's doing something right. The animation is smooth, and they've cut some corners to try to fit the majority of the story into 12 episodes, but it's still totally worth the watch!

    Great Setting and Concept, Ruined by Poor Production, Bad Direction, and Tropey Story
    Note: Watched only episodes 1-7 so far
    Overall Feeling: Easy watching, with warm tones, but a lingering annoyance at bad direction and predictable tropes

    Steampunk London? Sounds good! The art is nice, with interesting costume designs, and sometimes you see frames that look lovely. Then there is the action: recycled frames, excessive use of smoke to hide ...

    Code: Realize, Review
    This anime is great!! I was originally drawn to it by the artwork which kind of reminded me of Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji), another anime I absolutely love. Since I have not played the game, I was not able to watch Code: Realize with that filter in mind, so I wrote this review just as I would for any other anime. All in all, I loved the first four episodes; I thought they were intriguing with a ...

    Code Realize: My Review
    This is a show that will get better throughout each episode. I love all the characters and they each bring a different dynamic to the show. A twist in episode 4 had me surprised and i expect some more to come. The world itself is very intriguing as well.

    Pretty Boys in Steam Punk Prance
    This is a boring show.

    The attention given to the steampunk fashion and visual design is so good, and is in stark contrast to the design and depth given to the characters, who are completely interchangeable. This week's show for instance has a vampire doing old school Karate fighting in the most boring kind of fight scenes, but the script reads "What moves!! You can really tell he's a ...

    Please play the game instead!
    Note: as of writing this review, I have seen episodes 1 through 9. And I have completed the game on the PSVITA.

    I am glad that they kept the original voice actors from the games and chose to stick to the plot as close to the game as possible. The animation so far is sub-pair at best; coming from someone who's majoring in animation, I can tell you that majority of the scenes are recycled, ...

    Haven't played the game, but from watching this anime I think.....
    I enjoy watching it. At first I thought there was going to be a girl who is weak and can't do anything right. But as I continue to watch it I start to like the characters a lot. The theme that they are in England are pretty cool and It reminds me of black butler in a way, I mean when they sing my faiirrr lady black butler was the only thing that popped into my my mind. The characters are very ...

  • Play the game first:
    Although very fast paced until the first half of the series, it does a good job at showing the main parts of the plot... This anime is definitely not for first watchers, I think if you play the game first you'll have fun finding which route is that dialogue/episode from, etc, AND come to understand many things that don't make sense in this adaptation.

    The character design is amazing (coming ...

    really wanted to like it, but don't
    The concept was interesting, the art pretty, and the characters set up like they could be interesting. The first episode was pretty good (although not amazing), but the second episode felt like I was watching a play-through of a dating sim where the person was trying to decide which character's route to take. Every character seems like they have an interesting backstory, but almost too much so. ...

    I'm Sorry, 2 episodes is all you get
    The Anime is stiff, I'm sure it's a nice video game but the whole anime feels like a video game, with stiff dialogue. Animation wise, it's 'pretty' but when it comes to dialogue, it's 'ugh' and the whole unscientific science, is just as bad... I don't mind fantasy, or magic, but some of the things the characters do, are beyond magic, and somehow I'm supposed to believe that a human can do ...
