Those few lucky fans who received a special summons to Code Geass‘ 10th anniversary celebration were on to something when they decoded the hidden message “Rebirth of the Demon”. Sunrise decreed at the event on Sunday that the anime is in for its “next project”, with a three-part anime compilation film planned on top of that. Here’s the visual that heralded the new project. Be aware: from here on in, things get a little spoilery.
The project in question is a sequel, Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection). Taking place several years after the ‘Zero Requiem’ plot, staff also revealed that Lelouch the genuine article, not an alternate dimension version or clone, will be appearing in this new project. The format in which it will be released is as yet unknown.
The three-part film series, on the other hand, will recap both original anime series. The cast are all re-recording their lines, but are also preparing for new scenes too. We can expect the first film to open in Japan in 2017.
So, tell us. How excited are you? We’re just glad that, for once, an announcement we were waiting for didn’t turn out to be another pachinko machine.
