CODE GEASS: Boukoku no Akito – PV »« The Daily Dose

New Code Geass Coming Soon?

CODE GEASS 2010 Small

So it looks like we can revive the discussion about whether Lelouch is dead or alive. According to a graphic on the mobile phone site for Code Geass, a new Geass project has been green-lit. Somehow, I’m not too shocked that this is happening, and really it was only a matter of time before Sunrise came back to this successful franchise. Two of the possibilities that came to mind are that it could be a direct sequel to R2, or it could be a completely different take, like Mai-Otome was to Mai-HiME. Astute observers will note that this announcement coincides with Lelouch’s birthday. There’s no word yet either whether it’ll be an OVA or full series or what, but apparently there’ll be more news in the new year.

    WHAT THE HELL??? I hope this will be a full length series and not OVA

  • December 6, 2009 at 10:18 amZero

    I thought the sequel was Spice and Wolf, since the ending looked exactly like the beginning of the series =D

    so excited!!

    I personally hope that this will be an alternative storytelling of Code Geass, similar to what Evangelion movies are to the Evangelion franchise.

    The director of Code Geass once spoke that R2′s storyline was not what he originally conceived. He wanted to continue exactly where season 1 left off. However, due to the change in time slot, he was forced to redo the entire season 2 plot so that even new viewers can catch up quickly.

    R2 essentially ignored almost everything that season 1 build up on. While it delivered the perfect entertainment, R2 failed to continue the flow from season 1′s finale. Let’s face it, R2 was fail, plot wise. I personally wish for an alternative storyline that continues where exactly season 1 left off.

    More important, I want to see Lelouch X C.C. to actually go somewhere.

  • December 6, 2009 at 12:40 pmRyuzaki

    @Dukethegold:

    100% agree, though I wouldn’t mind a new season, R2 left a lot of unsolved plot points. We didn’t even get C.C.’s name. :(

  • December 6, 2009 at 12:45 pmStar

    HE LIVES YOU FANTARDS! HE DIED BUT HE LIVES ON AND ON AND ON IN OUR HEART LIKE THE CIRCLES OF ORANGE FRUIT FROM THE ORANGE TREE FROM THE ORANGE SEED FROM ORANGI-KUN’S FIELD OF HOPE XD SCRATCH-WRONG ANIME.

    I don’t know if I’ll be able to tolerate new characters as the center of this show though, if it isn’t Lelouch or Suzaku, anyone else will be immediately tagged as mary and sue in my book.

  • December 6, 2009 at 1:53 pmJin

    I predict it will be a direct sequel of R2 with the new series being kinda like the Gundam Seed Destiny sequel where there are some new characters and halfway through the series Lelouch will make a Kira-like appearance to save the day.

  • December 6, 2009 at 4:27 pmTaiki1234

    Please PLEASE don’t tell me that this is a direct sequal to R2…That would ruin the end which at least I thought was great:( (sad but great.

    Well it would be just as bad if its based on one of the manga spinn offs:(

    1 word:
    SCHNIZIEL

  • December 6, 2009 at 6:50 pmNyx

    Don’t see why you’re all BAWWW’ing over the possibility of NoN being made into an animated series, it’s a good manga. Especially when compared to SotC, which was far too short, and even LotR, sheerly because…well, c’mon, the best the Black Knights can do there is petty vandalism because there’s no KMFs.

    An alternate take, be it on R2 or an AU in itself, would be fine, otherwise.

  • December 6, 2009 at 7:55 pmSiege

    I cannot see how they could make a new plot if they do go ahead and create a new season. Only if Schneizel gets himself out of the geass bestowed upon him. Otherwise I think it might be something short like an OVA or two. Maybe it will answer all of the questions that were at the end of the second season.

  • December 6, 2009 at 9:11 pmQnTiria

    OMG ALL HAIL LELOUCH and Lulu-chan BETTER be dead or the WHOLE R2 season would be absolutely crap!

  • December 6, 2009 at 10:21 pmPikapu

    yagami = FAIL.

  • December 6, 2009 at 11:20 pmanimato

    Wow, possibly another series? Awesome! However, I don’t think a direct sequel will work.. since that’ll mean that another war will need to break out and that’ll just ruin the Zero Requiem (the only way I see that this could possibly happen is if Orange accidently de-activates Schnizel’s geass or something).

    I would love to see them make a tv series similar to the game Code Geass Lost Colors… hopefully we will know more by the end of the year (whoohoo!!).

    3. AAAAAAAAAAAAA.. Waitin CC!!!!

  • December 7, 2009 at 3:03 amAraya

    i’ll take whatever if there’s kallen in it
    although i believe it will be either a brand new or an alternative story
    a direct sequel will be retarded

  • December 7, 2009 at 4:05 amWingZeroZXT

    Sigfried
    Avalon
    THE Master

    I dont care which: if (The) new series starts with ANY of these i may actually have abrain aneurysm due to sheer EPICNESS (nakagawa does KILLER MUSIC!!!)

    _______________________

    Is this a season 2 of the LAST GREAT ANIME ERA EVER??
    (e.g code geass 3, Gundam movie, Gurren lagann 2, Macross+^2again!THEN : LUCKY STAR R2X WTHROFL!! LOL)

    hmmm i wish!!

    Also Direct sequel would be awesome!!! after all humans ARE hummans and all stories with a global (or galactic) plotline have easily got the capacity to go on forever!!!
    This one is no exception!
    I mean lets put it this way: I doubt the planet earth in gundam wing is still as peaceful as it was when we last saw it :P

  • December 7, 2009 at 6:26 amLys

    I hope it’s a retelling/alternate storyline following ‘Nightmare of Nunally’…

    Everyone, don’t forget about K-ON! Specials that this blog has not blogged. :(

  • December 7, 2009 at 11:01 amNickias

    1st thought : ALL Hail Lelouch!!!
    2nd : wusnt he dead ………….

  • December 7, 2009 at 12:50 pmando

    I BET THAT IS SUZAKU DRESSED IN ZERO’S CLOTHING.

  • December 7, 2009 at 2:17 pmChaos

    i disagree with most people i don’t think that the r2 series was well done and the end of the series was force and events were speed up. also i don’t think that it should have ended that way. Many of the story aspects were not fully flushed out such as were the power of geass actually comes from and what those images of people bearing the symbol were about, also what the hell is cc name. Also Lelouch’s relationship with Kallen was always a major aspect of R2 as it was obvious to everyone they had feelings for each other. If it is a sequal i see it as something comes forth to threaten the piece and quite possibly suzaku dies or some how he can’t be zero anymore so leleouch returns to take up his mantel as the king

  • December 7, 2009 at 2:27 pmAzuma

    I’d love to see a slice of life alternate universe. With Lulu having a fun school life wiht his siblings.

  • December 7, 2009 at 3:56 pmZombie-lelouch

    I´ve lived with a greenhaired witch with suicide tendencies, a little sister with a bro complex, a maid with cosplay fetiches, a half-sister terminator-wannabe, not to mention her four-eyes stalker that wants to kill me and her boyfriend who wants me dead too…a council president who organized a manhunt after my head with school funds just to tell me she likes me, and in the end she didn´t say anything (weirdo)…a father and mother with religous issues…¿Did I forget to mention the whole organization I created that stabbed me in the back just because OUR ENEMY pointed his finger and told them that everything was my fault?(Granted, most of it was)

    …let´s not forget that red-haired one, she didn´t let me get high…

    Oh yeah, and that adopted brother who worked for the government as an assasin…¿Cool?, it would be if he didn´t develop a brother complex too and killed my girlfriend!

    Please, let me rest in peace, being dead is better and returning to that life…

    if it is, what a disappointment >: I was hoping for an anime

  • December 7, 2009 at 8:43 pmTheDude

    The ending of Code Geass R2 was all wrong. It should have been a harem end with Lelouch in a desert island surrounded by C.C., Kallen and Milly. Suzaku would be the cabana boy.

  • December 7, 2009 at 8:47 pmWingZeroZXT

    Im looking forward to the new manga cos its by goro but part of code geass’ awesomeness was that the show wasnt a manga b4hand so everything was new! as it is now im reading naruto and watching the anime and it becomes really boring when your only watching a show for the fight scenes/force of habit! no anime adaptation of code geass manga please :P it would be pointless

  • December 7, 2009 at 9:51 pmOOOOOOONO

    It’s confirmed that the Zero poster is really about the manga??

    Whaaa I want it to be on screen, movie or ova w/e. I want more CC and Lelouch

    wtf is she doing with Renya.. nobody touches CC except Lelouch.

  • December 7, 2009 at 11:35 pmstrawberris

    this is the best news of the year… thank god the years ending i dont think i can take anymore

    ALL HAIL LELOUCH!!!! ALL HAIL LELOUCH!!!! ALL HAIL LELOUCH!!!!

  • December 8, 2009 at 8:53 amtiw

    Meh. I wonder if there really will be a new anime or OVA about it. Maybe they are just testing the waters or planning something else with the franchise.

    I also wonder if they can actually make a well woven story of it. The first season itself, I found at times lacking: the flasbacks to the Geass marked (C.C.-like) people in the past, something with the house of Kururugi and Geass/C.C., when there was peace talk with Euphemia between C.C. and Suzaku something went wrong, etc. Alls orts of dropped hints that they would explore the background of the Geass, but is never explained.

    Also, I found the first season lacking in other things as well, like Mao and the best friends become enemies trope (I never really like that, in virtually any story, unless it happens unexpected not at the start).

    R2 is by far the worst, because I felt that things started to make increasingly less sense (noone seems to be bothered about Villeta and Ougi and what they have been doing, Ougi becoming prime minster while it was actually said and shown he has no leadership qualities, the Black Knights sudden turning on Zero believing what a enemy said impromptu, etc.

    I also didn’t like Euphemia, the command given to Suzaku to live on, filler-ish epi’s of school days (not complete filler, but I would have liked it more if they had spend the epi’s on showing the Black Knights and/or one of Zero’s missions).

    On one hand I would like a reimagining of the series (maybe with another writer on board), on the other hand, I wonder if they would be able to actually make a difference, a improvement and would be better of to leave it alone.

  • December 8, 2009 at 5:30 pmCafard

    Too bad I wanted to see lelouch. What the fuck with renya. They did the same thing with tenchi muyo. All crap. I don’t see the problem they could do a sequel with R2.(kind of)
    They discover lelouch is alive and go after him, or there is a bad guy use this chance to rise. Dammit lelouch was a great character, his voice, he was my favorite male character and they kill him.

    HAHAHA though a sequel would be better since we get to know whether Lelouch<33333 is alive or not and what happened to C.C. and the others but just anything is fine as long as lelouch is in there”DDDDDDDD
    ALl HAil LeLOUCH!!!!!!!

    FU renya, ALL HAIL LELOUCH!

  • December 10, 2009 at 12:15 pmMax

    I had a feeling that a new Code Geass might have a different character in a different setting. But the creators would have greater freedom to do what they want with it than the anime. So, this manga might be different because the series Co-Creator, Goro Taniguchi will be writing the manga, which is always a good thing.

  • December 10, 2009 at 5:32 pmProdigal

    wow i can’t wait

  • December 12, 2009 at 11:49 pmWingZeroZXT

    Code Geass is a mega series. We need to all just calm down and look forward to it!! It wwould take some series Full scale dragonautx1000000 EPIC failure to ruin it! so skeptism is unneccesary!

  • December 14, 2009 at 10:40 pmReikakou

    This is one of the very few animes that made me cried a lot, from shirley’s, to euphy’s, its ending, the twists and turns, strife, politics, morals and everything.. all that that took my breathe away…

    I’m really excited for this new development. As i hope that all these debating, theories and speculations i’ve read all over will fade when this one rolls on whatever form it may take (whether an OVA, prequel, sequel..) … I just hope sunrise don’t screw it up and be true to themselves….

  • December 14, 2009 at 10:52 pmReikakou

    hAH! i did not paid attention to all post.. considering that its going to be a manga of a time before lelouch’s.. shrugs..

  • December 14, 2009 at 11:23 pmReikakou

    Aw!! a manga!!! heartbreak…

  • December 24, 2009 at 7:25 pmbuff

    wohoo a new geass anime hope its good… on a side note while browsing through the web i accidentally found something it might or might not be accurate but in historic time (gaelic mythology) thers was a person bestowed with a geas and his name was “cu chulainn”. now i may be just over thinking this but could C2′s name actually be “cu chulainn”

  • January 1, 2010 at 9:38 pmmizunopearl

    I believe a new series of Code Geass can help the franchise rather than harm it. As we are all aware R2 was a dismal failure to its predecessor. There are many ways sunrise could go about a new series. They could do one that takes place say 100 years after R2 with new characters.

    Yes many people may argue that new characters will “damage” the code geass franchise but i do not believe this. As there were many unanswered questions left from R2 this new series may be a golden light that addresses these much needed issues. The life after what Lelouch created for the people of the world contains dozens of possibility. Perhaps this UFN gets corrupted and a new zero or someone who must fight the UFN lead by zero will appear. However, I believe Sunrise can damage their franchise by the Renya of the Dark manga they are coming out with as the new anime series.

    Geass is important but the Knightmares in the series also play a big role in defining the character of the series and lets just say i can’t believe a series about Knightmares appearing in the Edo era. It does not sell me.

  • January 11, 2010 at 3:51 amrurucchi.wa.hontou.ni.daisuki.desu

    I JUST WANT TO KNOW IS LELOUCH ALIVE OR NOT ,*if he was alive, then i will smack my bro and smile everyday~*
    i hope he was hiding somewhere with CC~ kyaa~~ i love that couple~
    is there anybody know about shikkoku no renya?? CC will appear there!!

  • January 20, 2010 at 3:27 pmRain Wase

    Such a beautiful work. I believe this new code Geass will be based off another manga branch of the series, Code Geass: Nightmare of Nunnally. It’s written by Tomomasa Takuma not the inspirational Ichirō Ōkouchi. It was actually a combination of Ichirō Ōkouchi, Tite Kubo, and Masashi that led me to write my own manga (and soon to be in the not-so-distant future anime). Your thoughts on it would be much appreciated since I’m sure we have remotely relevant tastes considering that if your posting here, you LOVE Code Geass just as much as I do.

    If it is a direct sequel we know that the person in the Zero costume is Suzaku then….
    I bet it’ll be a re-make or one of the spin of series.
