Formed in 2004 by front man Johnny Yong Bosch and Maurice Salmin, Eyeshine first found success in 2006 with a unique blend of pop punk and post grunge called Edge Rock. The band gained a modest audience with its debut EP, "How About That" and their first full length album, "Red Stripes White Lights" but it was their sophomore effort, "My Paper Kingdom" that officially opened the flood gates in 2009. MPK featured their award winning song, "ALONE," whose honest and simple lyrics made a connection to a steadily growing fan base. The band has continued to self produced 6 more albums: "Tone Of Echoes" (features the Elfenworks Foundation sponsored song "Hope Is So Far Away"), "Afterglow" (acoustic album), "Sonosis" (instrumental album), "Sansvox" (karaoke album), "XMAS" (Christmas album), and their latest album "Revolution Airwaves."

Eyeshine won the worldwide Ford sponsored competition "Gimme The Gig II" in May 2012. They recorded a single and filmed a music video with the Legendary Don Was (President of Blue Note Records and 7 time Grammy Award winning Producer - Rolling Stones, Elton John, John Mayer, etc) and Krish Sharma (Producer/Engineer - The Rolling Stones, Counting Crows, Hilary Duff, Jesse McCartney, etc) out of the "Ford Focus Studio." Which is a Mobile Studio that was built into a Ford Focus by "Mad" Mike Martin (Pimp My Ride). KTLA (West Coast News Stations affiliated with The CW TV Network), filmed and aired the one-hour special on west coast television (KTLA, KTVU, and KICU).

If that isn't enough to get you excited, then how about a message from the 99th Emperor of Britannia himself!

Hey guys,

Lugiamania here, and we're starting up a new feature each month where we introduce and discuss an awesome title from Crunchyroll's HUGE catalog library! This month, we're starting with one of my personal favorites from a few years ago: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion!


Just in case you haven't heard of this juggernaut of a franchise, here's what you need to know: A collaboration between manga-ka superstars CLAMP and animation studio Sunrise of Gundam fame, Code Geass featured an all-star cast and slick animation with giant robot battles and teenagers and school uniforms. Spanning 2 seasons, several OVA, multiple manga series, and spawning a truckload of merchandise that is still being churned out to this day, it's probably safe to say that Code Geass is one of the most popular anime that has been created in the last few years.


Synopsis:

The story takes place in an alternate universe in which the empire of Britannia has conquered pretty much the majority of the known world (save for the EU and China), including Japan. Now under Britannian rule, the Japanese have lost not only their country, but their identity as well, being reclassified as "Elevens", due to the renaming of Japan to Area 11, and are treated like second-class citizens. Advanced technology in the form of "Knightmare Frames", giant mechs that are used in combat, gave Britannia the upper hand and allowed them to easily conquer multiple countries, expanding their empire. However, there are those who oppose Britannia, and will do anything to win back Japan's freedom, including a young man named Lelouch. He is granted a power called "Geass" by an mysterious girl he inadvertently saves one day, and acquires the ability to command anyone to do his bidding, as long as he makes eye contact while giving the order. A brilliant strategist and armed with this "Power of the Gods", he uses his Geass to his advantage as he rebels the Britannian empire and extracts his revenge against them.

For those of you who prefer to not have to read subtitles, Code Geass is one of those titles that Crunchyroll offers in both subbed AND dubbed versions, so if you would rather Johnny Yong Bosch voice Lelouch instead of Jun Fukuyama, you're free to choose.


Review:



We will be having special features focusing on Code Geass this month, so start up the discussions and feel free to share with everyone your thoughts on this amazing series!

My favorite anime it got me into the mecha/sci-fi genre and into Gundam.

I really love Rolo, Cornelia, Villetta, Milly and Gino they are my top 5 favorite characters. I also really like Anya, Suzaku, and Jeremiah too.

Akito is nice so far I can't wait until Spring though it seems so far away. Hope that the other two episodes won't have such a long wait period. xD

When I first saw the show (I was the magic number of 8 years old) I just fell for it as the BEST anime ever. But now that I'm older X3 I saw this thing called Code MENT. And now whenever I look at the regular show, all I see is the abridged series so it kinda ruined it for me...Still I love it and I might die knowing this is all gunna happen!!

I don't understand how you can give up on a show like this. The plot is absolutely rivetting. It's by far one of the best written shows I have ever seen. Two minutes is NOT enough to determine whether it's worth a go or not.

One of my favorites. It just feels so organic. Everything and everyone is constantly changing, adapting, growing, and changing sides, and it's fascinating to watch everything unfold. Some of the plot twists had me speechless. While I don't agree with some of the characters' actions, I know why they chose what they did and understand them. It also had great gender equality. In most war/battle anime, it's either all men or all women and a few badasses of one gender. But Code Geass has its fair share of badasses of both sexes.
It does have some faults though. Some of the shifts from serious battles to school wackiness were bumpy and felt out of place. Towards the end of the second season, a lot of characters ended up with some heavy plot armor.
But it really is a great anime that anyone should watch.

Don't advertise something that you only have half of. You'll only make people mad.

First of all I think this is a great idea. However, I believe selecting a title that is entirely represented on CR would be better for both discussion and getting people to check out the anime (without leaving CR to finish watching the series!) As for Code Geass, I have the DVDs and have seen both the subbed and dubbed versions and I like the subbed acting better. The Clamp designs, art and animation are top shelf! This is a hard series to discuss without treading into spoilers.

It isn't impossible; Code Geass could get picked by another company. Maybe.

If you want to watch season two, you can see it on http://www.amazon.com by searching "code geass" and buying the season two DVD boxed set.

(It sounded like I was going to suggest an illegal streaming site. That was the joke. Laugh.)
