Are there changes in the works with Bandai Entertainment's August 18th release of Code Geass R2 release? Originally solicited as having nine episodes at 225 minutes (along with Part 2 which was solicited just this week with the same runtime), the first part is making it into retailers and consumers hands now and not all is as solicited. The Part 1 release contains the first seven episodes on two DVDs within the single sized keepcase, totaling 175 minutes as it's short two episodes. The series run twenty-five episodes and this leaves us with eighteen more to go, so we should see two sets with nine episodes on each of them. The difference in runtimes from what was solicited has caused concern among several though since it's significantly short of what has been solicited and talked about.
