The official CODE GEASS website released their first promotion video today, and it included several new shots that weren’t in the DVD Magazine trailer. This has a couple more shots of Rollo (is that him narrating?), more shots of the Chinese Federation guy, and a shot of Viletta jumping down the side of a building among other things. Speaking of the Chinese Federation, this new character looks like he’s from there too, based on the way he’s dressed. This shot might also (somewhat) answer the question of why Kallen was kicking this guy in the face in the other trailer. Suzaku meanwhile looks a lot meaner and determined, making me think he’ll be pretty ruthless if the situation calls for it.
The question I have now is how Lelouch got out of that situation at the end of the first series, and what his relationship to the Black Knights is. In relation to this particular PV, it’s the question of whether he’s surprised when the Burai appears here or if it’s something he planned all along. And finally, where is Nunnally in all this? She’s been absent from all the promotional material so far, and I’m beginning to wonder if there’s some big plot twist involving her that they’re trying to keep under wraps. In any case, this was an exciting trailer, and, as I mentioned last time, I’m looking forward to April.
