It was confimed as OVAs long time ago. Good they are twice longer, bad that we have to wait so long.

Took for them forever, and this is what people get. Hey, I'd say "I told you so", but....

In between the first season and the asspull of a second season. During the interval. It happens on the European front.

lets just hope its not a train wreck like R2 was. I mean hey less episodes maybe means they have less opportunities to fuck up

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

About time they announce some info for this. Had this series on my PTW list for a long time.

Well I was hoping it would be a series, but 50 minute OVA episodes didn't sound too bad either.

Will watch :D

Well, at least it is better than wait 6 months for each next episode of Gundam Unicorn. Though I'm sad that it wont be a TV series :(

I guess this means that it will have more quality than the average TV series, but the time period between episodes are months instead of weeks.

I've been waiting so long for this, and keeps pushing back, and letting me down. It's going to take a year for all of these to come out. I also agree they should show LeLouch and C.C because I'd like some new animation of them, and this is happening at the same time so it makes sense canon wise

Anyone have any recommendations for an anime that's like code geass. I'm more of a fan of the mind games than I am the robots. So Death Note for example/

Need something to fill void between now and then.

A nuisance, Macross Frontier ended, and a new Geass can be released.

That's not so bad I guess, though 4 episodes instead of Unicorn's 6 is a bit disappointing.

Well four eps is not much but still better than nothing at all . I mean it's code geass after all . I hope it would be epic otherwise this would probably be a huge disappointment .
I wish there would be sth about Zero even if just a piece of news . I still can't accept that he won't be there :(

I'm relieved it's not a tv series. Since it's an OVA and 50m per ep, the quality should be great.

Don't understand the hate on R2 though. Was far from an asspull. These guys hating on R2 are probably the same guys that hated the Clannad AS ending =/

My thoughts exactly.
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

I'm actually kind of relieved that it's an OVA. I feel like a TV series would just utterly fail. Too bad we have to wait 3 months per episode. That's too long. >.<

In the end this is just some other story of Code Geass, nothing more..

This is somewhat disappointing. Episodes are twice as long but they come every 3 months instead of every week. Not only that but it's only 4 eps. Whatever. I'm still watching if it's Code Geass/
