Yes! I hope this is good and am really excited, but I know I probably shouldn't set my expectations too high. ^^V

But man, gotta love that cast.

As for the musical... -.o
Why all men? Surely there must be at least 1 female theatre performer in Japan...
Whatevs. If it works, then it works.

Today was a great day for all the Code Geass news I've read so far. :D

Hope it doesn't take too long to appear online. =P

Definitely going to watch this, but OVA's tend to be not-so-good in my book.

And the seyuu cast is awesome, props for that. Can't wait for it ;)

Is this for real???


Yep an all male cast.

I think they should have just let the seiyuu cast do the musical. It would have worked better imo.

Fuuta looks cute only watching it for him and Rolo couldn't give a damn about anything else. Although this will provide me with some epic lolz especially coming from the female characters being played by men. Now that I have got to see.

....the hell?

Unless this is a traditional Japanese thing I don't know about.

But still...a guy as C.C? Shirley? Kallen?

As if there wasn't enough homolust in CG to begin with. xD

Nooo I can't watch the trailer!!! Hmm the two main characters look hot! XD

Well they did say they will be some interaction between this and the main code geass, hope lelouch will appear inside these OVAs..

Oh boy I think i'll go crazy over Code Geass again..

Lelouch


No, just no.

Besides the fact that stupid theory has been shot down by the creator of the series, Boukoku no Akito takes place during the same timeframe as R1. So even if it was true (which it's not) it would hold no relevance in this series.
seriously guys, just accept the fact that the guy is
and like you said, that dumb theory was shot down by the creators themselves, how much more proof do you need, you need god to engrave it on your forehead backwards so every time you look in the mirror you cna be reminded of it


anyways i really hope this goes better than how the main series went, i loved the start and then it started to lose me and then R2 came around whcih i consider one of the worst sequels ive ever seen. but hey its in a new setting with new characters to its a fresh start

Summer time?! Way to get pushed from the beginning of this year to Summer. Better not be anymore setbacks. >:|
