Thankfully, because of the world wide web and the lovely Twitter, even us small souls who cannot be present for one reason or another at the New York Anime Fest happening right now in the Big Apple, can understand what is happening in this very moment. Crunchyroll announced on its official Twitter account that Sunrise has shared information about the new Code Geassproject.Its name is believed to be Code Geass Gaiden: Boukoku no Akito and nothing about either C.C., Lelouch Lamperouge or Suzaku has been mentioned.
I know this isn’t something entirely new, but not having any doubts is what we should celebrate right now.
According to the scarce information, the director of the animated adaptation of CLAMP’s internationally loved story about Britannia and the odd eye powers that Geass give to their wielders will be Kazuki Akane famous for his work on Noein: Mou Hitori no Kimi e and Escaflowne. Unfortunately for many fans of the Code Geass franchise this means that a lot of changes will happen for all previous animated TV series were directed by Goro Tanguchi.AT least the production company is the same…
The other piece of information released in this gracious twit was that the project has officially been given a date, though we don’t know it in it entirety. It is sometime next year (2012).
If any additional information is available, this post shall be updated and moved higher on the page.
Is this great news or not-so-great? What do you think? Comment below.
EDIT: According to some sources who have also been present at the event, the project mentioned is a different one than Code Geass Gaiden: Boukoku no Akito. Further details are still unavailable.
