This set of DVDs shows LeLouch having a tough time balancing his school life and the terrorist work with the Black Knights. In episodes 9-10, Zero and the Knights set up a massive landslide against the Brittanian forces in Narita. However, his landslide destroys the city of Narita, leaving him with the guilt of murdering thousands of people, including people related to his friends. The true kicker of this box set, however, are the episodes in which LeLouch confronts the madman, Mao. This teenager, madly in love with the green-haired C.C., has an incredible Geass power. LeLouch and Mao are forced to confront each other in a deadly battle of wits. Admittedly, this series will test the limits of even longtime shonen fans. There's plenty of violence and even a frightening scene involving a chainsaw and a pistol that may keep parents from purchasing this DVD. However, the stakes are raised in this anime for the heartbreaking, tragic end to season one in part three. This is a brutal, but exciting anime to watch.
