Key staff of the Code Geass franchise have revealed that Code Geass is far from over and that fans should expect more Code Geass content in the next decade.

They did not reveal any specifics about this project so at this point in time we can only speculate.

Koijiro Tanguichi also explains why Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch is a movie instead of an anime series while revealing that the end of R2 was left open on purpose.

This is good news because I didn t watch movie. Because Lelouch is dead I am not interest code geass without lelouch being alive. Hopefully CG appear in future with Lelouch alive.

It's important to note that "leaving it open for interpretation" merely means people are free to have their own headcanons.
Headcanons are NOT canon.
Canonically Lelouch is officially confirmed dead by Okouchi and Taniguchi themselves. They explained that Lelouch chose death as punishment for his sins. They explained that Lelouch's death was essential for their sense of ethics. They explained that the decision to kill off Lelouch was made unanimously and was taken before the writing had even started.
They even confirmed this canonical death of Lelouch in the official guide book and in 2009 they made a new epilogue, replacing the cart driver scene, where C.C. talks directly to the audience and explains that Lelouch is dead and that she mourns his death.
it's also worth noting that the anime istelf forbade Lelouch getting the code as that would have violated the rule sthe anime itself had established. It was made clear that everyone loses the geass when they get the code (happened in 100% of all shown examples, and it was explicitly confirmed through Charles' words), and Lelouch never lost his geass.
So while people have the freedom to make any headcanon they want, canonically there is no doubt he was truly dead and didn't have the code.

All pf this information, together with sources, links and pictures, can be found in the Code Geass Community Information Database

Some notable examples:
- "For those two who bear the heavy sin known as killing their fathers, they share the belief that they can forgive each other by imposing the greatest punishments on themselves. Death for Lelouch who wishes for a tomorrow with his sister, life for Suzaku who wishes to atone for his sins through death."
- "Before I started writing the story of a person called Lelouch, I confirmed with Taniguchi-director something. That thing was that the end of Lelouch will be death."
- ""This man called Lelouch will pay for his sins by his death. The story follows him till he finally make this decision."

And so on, there are many many many other examples.

It's even interesting to note that the show staff have explicitly denied corner point arguments of code theory.
They denied that codes needed to be activated: they explained that Charles was already immune to geass and immortal BEFORE he shot himself, they even said he never died and was just messing with Lelouch
They denied that Nunnally saw any visions or memories: they explained that she figured the Zero Requiem out on her own, no codes or geasses involved. She has been shown to have the ability to know the truth when she touches someone.

All of this overwhelmingly shows that canonically there is zero wiggle room for Lelouch to have a code. just as they officially confirmed.
And the new movie even confirms this.

As i explained in the other topic, your conclusion is entirely wrong and in contradiction with what the movie explicitly shows us!



So pelase, stop spreading these misinformed falsehoods!
The movie very clearly contradicts everything you said.

I think this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black, on your part, yet that's already enough.

The original Code theory was wrong, I've said so, because Lelouch did stay dead in the TV version.

However, I think your interpretation of the movie is also not too accurate either.

I'll keep my answers to the other topic, for the sake of not being redundant and having to type the same thing all over again.

There's no need to derail every single conversation on the forum with talk of this one aspect.

Your interpretation is directly contradicted by the movie. The movie shows us it's wrong (remember what happened to Shamna!) and the characters say so themselves.

@LelouchviBritMER

I agree on the fact that the staff did confirm that Lelouch is dead. However, what they are pointing out in my original post is that the ending was left ambiguous on purpose to pique the interest of the viewer; not that Lelouch didn't die at the ending of season two.

P.S. I see that you've written a review for Fukkatsu no Lelouch. Where did you watch the movie?

Hopefully so.

What happens to C.C. and Lelouch after Fukkatsu is left hanging (although the main plot is concluded). So yeh, I'm sure the writers can come up with something interesting. Maybe even a series without Lelouch.

A series without lelouch will never exist. I mean it's completely meaningless. He is the reason code geass is such a masterpiece... he is the money maker. Greatest anime character of all time

Well, although Lelouch makes an appearance in Akito, he is hardly a main character. He was there just to explain what happened to him between R1 and R2. The Akito series would remain unchanged even without Lelouch's appearance, so this kind of proves that a Code Geass series without Lelouch entirely is possible

Yeah but that is an OVA not a cannon series. I mean they can do a series without lelouch but i will not be anything special...lelouch is such great character that him being out of the series would just be a bad idea. We all want lelouch so why not just give him to us

Heyo! I'm the same Alchimique that posted on twitter/youtube/tumblr on this topic. I attended SakuraCon but also watched this movie 3 times while in Japan (I don't think I left a review on it because I don't write reviews on MAL and did all my talking about it via Discord. I do have a summary post on Tumblr via the CodeTrainwreck blog though. Which is full of spoilers).

I haven't read through all the comments here but basically:

The TV show is its own thing. That's self-contained and they did leave R2 in a way that is handy for people to speculate about (though they confirmed in multiple places that Lelouch is dead, meant to die, etc.). That hasn't changed.

Re;surrection is a continuation of the recap trilogy and there is something in it that is very different from the TV series. This makes Re;surrection an "alternate route" and my understanding is that the new projects will stem off of this route while leaving the original TV show the same. It was said prior to the 10 years project announcement that this separation between show and movie can make fans of only the original show happy and I agree with that.

Thanks for your words. You're right, there were various official mentions about Lelouch's death, but there were also various ambiguity-leaning official answers such as during previous anime conventions and in one of the light novels, yet I feel it's no longer important to have these old heated arguments now that things are becoming clearer thanks to the explicit distinction between the movie and the TV series in this regard.

Given that you've seen the movie multiple times and more recently, I believe you could help us with one issue.

A heartfelt thank you for providing this information straight from SakuraCon. How did you find the movie? I'm in the UK and there's no way I am going to travel to NA to watch it so I'm just going to have to wait for a pirated version.

P.S. My Discord is shinkirou#0847 if you want to add me.

You're welcome. It was a very fun experience at SakuraCon to talk to the Geass staff face to face and express how much I enjoyed their work. :)

I've got A Lot of Feelings about this movie since I went in expecting different things but well, I did enjoy it enough to watch it 3 times raw (I think I rated this 6/10; I rated Code Geass 9/10 since I never give perfect scores). TL;DR review: Watch it like you would watch Mad Max or Indiana Jones rather than anything that would give concrete answers to questions.

I hope a lot more people can enjoy it once it's more available. SakuraCon reception was very positive and that made me enjoy the movie my 4th time even more lol (by this time I was watching the audience more than the movie and I was very curious about reactions since Japanese audiences don't react at all at the movies).

My discord handle is alchimique#8322.

You're welcome. And I agree. There's no need for the old debates (Code Theory, etc) since the movie makes intentions and actions clear and is also clearly separate from the TV series.

I'm new to talking in these topics (as you can see from post count lol) so I hope to do this right without revealing spoilers:

It's also irrelevant.
The source does not matter, the results do.
If I have the flu and pass it to you, but in transmission it morphs into a common cold, then you have the common cold and not the flu.
The fact that I have the flu does not mean that the common cold is the flu now.
The fact I was the source for your illness does not mean the common cold is the flu now.
The only thing which can establish that your illness is the flu is by comparing the properties, and since they are not the same your illness is is not the flu.
You oversimplify and as a result fall into fallacies.

My point is we should accept that it has morphed into something else, but it still began as the flu. What you've been saying up to this point includes denying that both shared the same source. Furthermore, there are still open questions regarding certain properties that weren't tested during the movie.

Fundamental properties are different, that makes it sufficient to know that they are different concepts.
Not every property needs to be tested.
If we know something has wings and lays eggs we know enough to know it's not a cat, even if we didn't test if it can meow

It does, if we are to make any accurate statements about what those properties are.

Birds and cats are two entirely different animals. A better comparison would be two related yet still distinct cat species.

OMG dude
Are you doing this on purpose?
You quoted me saying that Lelouch did not get the code from Charles, and yes he did not get the CODE from Charles because he did not get a CODE.
That's not the same as saying that Charles wasn't involved in some way.
my god, i've explained this to you before.
Do my words just bounce off you?
You keep twisting and misrepresenting everything I say.
I'm seriously starting to doubt you're interested in a sincere conversation and are just here to mess with people.
For the millionth time, he did not get a CODE from Charles because he received another power.
The movie very clearly shows that.
So stop trying to put words in my mouth which I didn't say.

Ughhh
Codes make you immune to geass, this new power does not.
that is so fundamental that we're not talking about"different cats species" but about "mammals versus birds".
The difference is massive and obvious at first sight.
Saying that "every property needs to be tested" is just inane.

You are seriously not talking in good faith and just want to antagonize people

My suggestion is to just watch the movie when it is available and see how they explain it for this alternate timeline.

It might or might not be satisfactory but it is explained at least a little. :)

At this point, I think it's evident who is lacking good faith here. That would be yourself.

Like alchimique said, it will be better when even more people see the movie. I think they'll be able to understand what happened.

I am interested in having many other conversations about this show. You only seem to ever talk about the same topic and nothing else.

Of course I talk about the freaking topic you and I were talking about!
And yet you try to make it seem like talking about our topic somehow makes me the boogeyman.

No dude, you're disingenuous, you constantly twist my words, pretend I said things which I didn't, constantly ignore what I explained, etc.

Disagreement is allowed. You're not preaching the universal truth of a gospel here.

Ironically enough, you're accusing others of behavior that you've previously displayed.


How dare I talk about the topic we were talking about??

I wasn't thinking about just now or what you're telling me.

Look around. In multiple threads involving other topics and different people, this is all you talk about.

And you're doing it again!
Spin spin spin, twisting my words.
I didn't call you disingenuous because you disagree, I called you disingenuous because you twist my words

while revealing that the end of R2 was left open on purpose.


It's important to note that "leaving it open for interpretation" merely means people are free to have their own headcanons.
Headcanons are NOT canon.
Canonically Lelouch is officially confirmed dead by Okouchi and Taniguchi themselves. They explained that Lelouch chose death as punishment for his sins. They explained that Lelouch's death was essential for their sense of ethics. They explained that the decision to kill off Lelouch was made unanimously and was taken before the writing had even started.
They even confirmed this canonical death of Lelouch in the official guide book and in 2009 they made a new epilogue, replacing the cart driver scene, where C.C. talks directly to the audience and explains that Lelouch is dead and that she mourns his death.
it's also worth noting that the anime istelf forbade Lelouch getting the code as that would have violated the rule sthe anime itself had established. It was made clear that everyone loses the geass when they get the code (happened in 100% of all shown examples, and it was explicitly confirmed through Charles' words), and Lelouch never lost his geass.
So while people have the freedom to make any headcanon they want, canonically there is no doubt he was truly dead and didn't have the code.

All pf this information, together with sources, links and pictures, can be found in the Code Geass Community Information Database

Some notable examples:
- "For those two who bear the heavy sin known as killing their fathers, they share the belief that they can forgive each other by imposing the greatest punishments on themselves. Death for Lelouch who wishes for a tomorrow with his sister, life for Suzaku who wishes to atone for his sins through death."
- "Before I started writing the story of a person called Lelouch, I confirmed with Taniguchi-director something. That thing was that the end of Lelouch will be death."
- ""This man called Lelouch will pay for his sins by his death. The story follows him till he finally make this decision."

And so on, there are many many many other examples.

It's even interesting to note that the show staff have explicitly denied corner point arguments of code theory.
They denied that codes needed to be activated: they explained that Charles was already immune to geass and immortal BEFORE he shot himself, they even said he never died and was just messing with Lelouch
They denied that Nunnally saw any visions or memories: they explained that she figured the Zero Requiem out on her own, no codes or geasses involved. She has been shown to have the ability to know the truth when she touches someone.

All of this overwhelmingly shows that canonically there is zero wiggle room for Lelouch to have a code. just as they officially confirmed.
And the new movie even confirms this.


I disagree. If it's open then nothing is confirmed 100% canon, hence what's the point of it being open ending?

It's not open at all.
It is EXTREMELY EXPLICITLY confirmed by the show staff he is totally dead.
Did you not read anything I posted?
How can you say it's open with all the examples of official statements I gave? That's just willful ignorance.
I'll post some examples again so you can READ them this time. So don't pretend it's open. That's just a LIE.

All of this information, together with sources, links and pictures, can be found in the Code Geass Community Information Database

Here's what they said during "Geass memories" which celebrated the 10 year anniversary of the show:

- "Before I started writing the story of a person called Lelouch, I confirmed with Taniguchi-director something. That thing was that the end of Lelouch will be death."
- "This man called Lelouch will pay for his sins by his death. The story follows him till he finally make this decision."
-"Probably this Lelouch we see in the first episode of the series wouldn't choose death. He would try something to avoid it. He couldn't [b]die[/b], for Nunnally as well. But we see him changed in the last episode."
-"At least he is aware of his sins and pays for them with his death."


Here's what they wrote in the official guide book of the show:

- "For those two who bear the heavy sin known as killing their fathers, they share the belief that they can forgive each other by imposing the greatest punishments on themselves. Death for Lelouch who wishes for a tomorrow with his sister, life for Suzaku who wishes to atone for his sins through death."


In 2009 they dropped the cart scene which was misunderstood by code theorists and made a brand new one where C.C. directly addressed the audience and explicitly explained to us that Lelouch was dead and that she mourned his death.
You can watch the new epilogue here
Here are her words:

"A young man dies. He had the power to change the world, to create a new order. The world feared him, hated him. But, I know he died with a smile on his face. Only those who have realised their dream will truly understand that feeling of utter contentment. So, this is not a tragedy. And whenever I feel sad or cry at night, I sing a song. A song of man's making. Zero Requiem!"


Here's an example from their interview in Continue Vol.42:

"Lelouch says in the first episode: "Only those prepared to be shot are allowed to pull the trigger themselves." If you were to think of that as his pride, then I think his getting shot (killed) in the end was a logical end."

Here they officially contradicted code theory's fundamental points:

They deny that codes need to be activated by explaining that Charles was already immortal and immune to geass, i.e. has the code, BEFORE he shot himself, proving that the idea of activating codes is wrong:
ใ€Œใ“ใ‚Œใ‚ฎใ‚ขใ‚นๆŽ›ใ‹ใฃใฆใชใ„ใฎใซๆญปใ‚“ใ ใตใ‚Šใ™ใ‚‹ใ‚“ใ ใ‚ˆใ€ใ€Œๆฏๅญใ‚’้ฉšใ‹ใ›ใ‚ˆใ†ใจใ€ใ€Œใƒซใƒซใƒผใ‚ทใƒฅใใ‚“ใ‹ใ‚ใ„ใใ†ใ€ใ€Œใ“ใ‚Œไธ€็•ชใ‚ทใƒงใƒƒใ‚ฏใชใ‚ฟใ‚คใƒŸใƒณใ‚ฐ่จˆใฃใฆใ‚‹ใ‚ˆใญใ€ใ€Œ็ตถๅฏพ็ฌ‘ใ„ใ“ใ‚‰ใˆใฆใ‚‹ใ‚ˆใ€ใฃใฆ่‰ฒใ€…่จ€ใ‚ใ‚Œใฆใฆ็ฌ‘ใฃใŸใ€‚
"He isn't geassed, just pretends he dies!" " He tries to surprise his son!" "Poor Lelouch" "He tries to choose the most shocking timing, doesn't he" "I'm sure he tries hard not to laugh"

They also denied that Nunnally saw visions or code memories, Nunnally figured out Lelouch's plan on her own:
"How did Nunnally managed to realize Lelouch true intention, when she touched his hand at the end?"
"The way Nunnally can tell that someone is lying, just like she was able to tell that Lohmeyer was lying to her, is that she can feel the hand of the person she is talking to is sweating or lightly trembling. It's nothing like Geass or some special ability like that."
"Yes. So, she simply came to conclusion [Lelouch was lying] by herself, because of this ability."
"She is Marianne's daughter and Lelouch's little sister. Two months have passed since that defeat of Schneizel and for this two months she's been wondering constantly about what had happened, like "why it happened?" and so on. So when she touched Lelouch's hand at the end she felt that he is calm, she put the two and two together and realized the truth. Of course, we know that in anime, it's hard to explain things like that, but yeah, please accept it like this kind of romantic idea we had."

There are many many many more examples, but this post is getting long.

All of this overwhelmingly shows that canonically there is zero wiggle room for Lelouch to have a code. just as they officially confirmed.
And the new movie even confirms this.

So don't pretend they didn't repeat a million times that Lelouch was truly dead.
Against such vast amount of evidence, pretending that it was "open" is dishonest, wilfully ignorant and just plain stupid.

First of all, only the writer said he is dead, the director of the show didn't say anything, and usually they a bigger influence on the story.
You can write as much as you want, IMO he is alive, and you can't convince me otherwise

If they 100% wanted lelouch dead they wouldn't put in a scene like that at the end.

And that's not true.
Director taniguchi contradicted code Theory's assumptions about code activation.
And he also confirmed that Lelouch was truly dead in his conversation with writer Okouchi. that was told to us during the anniversary "Geass memories"
Please do your homework before spouting lies. I have given you all the links you need.

So the people who made the show hammering over and over and over and over and over again that he's truly dead and even going as far as debunking the core points of code theory don't convince you?
The anime making it crystal clear that it is impossible for Lelouch to have a code isn't enough for you?
That's delusional!
How can you be willfully blind to the MASSIVE mountain of proof and official statements that he's really dead?
Even the new movie confirms he was totally dead and not immortal!!
That's like flat earthers who keep pretending the earth is flat despite all the evidence saying it's not.
The code conspiracy theory was fully debunked by the anime itself!


BestBoiEren said:

The cart scene?
Do you not understand the meaning of that?
It's showing us C.C. has made peace with the death of Lelouch and that she has embraced the future. She even says she now knows her power won't lead to loneliness.
And if that's not enough, the show staff even dropped that epilogue after some people misunderstood it, replacing it an extremely unsubtle explanation of C.C. directly explaining to the audience that lelouch is totally dead.
C.C. is talking to us and saying he's truly dead and that she's mourning Have you not seen it yet? Are you afraid of watching it? I've linked it many times already. CLICK THAT LINK and see for yourself!! Don't bother replying here until you've seen that new epilogue.


Lelouch is dead because:
- the anime makes it IMPOSSIBLE for him to have a code
- code theory is fully debunked as being nothing more than a hoax with false arguments
- the show staff have said a million times he's dead.
- even in the new movie C.C. explicitly explains that Lelouch was a corpse until she reconstructed his corpse.

How open minded of you.
Confronted with the proof of the anime and the official statements from the show staff you just stick your head in the ground.
Have you even watched the new epilogue where C.C. explicitly explains that Lelouch is truly dead or are you too afraid that C.C. debunks your delusions?
Lelouch is dead and not immortal. There is no doubt about that. the anime says so, the show staff say so.
Everyone can read all the info the fandom has about this in the Code Geass Community Information Database. It includes all sources, links, pictures, etc.

I personally hope we get a couple new console games that isn't Super Robot Wars.

As for actual material the ending to the movie hinted at some sort of sequel involving Lelouch and CC hunting for the geass shards. This feels like it would be more like a TV series than an OVA series. The only question is when they will make it? Maybe 20 year anniversary lol?

Some more picture dramas or manga centering around other supporting characters like Nunnally would be more welcomed too. As much as I love CC, Kallen, and Suzaku there are plenty more supporting characters I find a lot more interesting. Like put them in the spotlight and make Lelouch,CC, Suzaku, and Kallen supporting characters for a change

I would like more Shirley content

tbh if it was the 20th anniversary it would be pretty hilarious.

and i am all for games. i downloaded the ds ones and they are abysmal. a 3d knightmare game for the ps4 or switch would be pretty awesome.

I would honestly like some more Charles and V.V content from when they were children up until the events of Marianne's "death". Or geass cult stuff so we can see more Mao, Rolo, and characters from Oz cause most of them were from the geass cult too. ugh there is so much characters and stuff to explore in the world of geass, but they focus too much on AUs like Lelouch as a store clerk or putting together a band. I mean these manga are not bad, but I want more stuff that could be considered canon to the main story.
