At the Code Geass 10th anniversary event on Sunday, it was announced that the series will be receiving a new anime project. Titled Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Revival), the new anime will take place a few years after the events of Zero Requiem. In addition, a three-part compilation film series of the previous Code Geass anime has been planned for 2017. The voices will be redubbed for the movies, which will also include new scenes.

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch is an original anime series produced by Sunrise, directed by Gorou Taniguchi with original character designs by manga artist group CLAMP, which aired in 25 episodes between October 2006 and July 2007. A sequel titled Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 was subsequently developed due to the immense popularity of the first season, also airing in 25 episodes between April 2008 and September 2008. An OVA Code Geass: Nunnally in Wonderland was released in July 2012. A spin-off movie series titled Boukoku no Akito was announced in April 2010, which screened in 5 parts from July 2012 to February 2016. The series was initially licensed by Bandai Entertainment for North American distribution before FUNimation re-licensed it in August 2013.

Best anime news in years. When I finished second season I was so depressed and later I searched all kinds of forums for weeks trying to prove my theories and even rewatched anime 3 times. If somebody told me 5 years ago I was right I wouldn't live all this years in doubt and hope. Super excited for new season. Akito was garbage. I hope it can live up to high expetations.

Lelouch has the power of the King. Even though Lelouch's ambitions were mainly for his sister, he was also a proud and usually egoistical person. He enjoyed his power and people like this don't like to die.

However i don't think that he told anything to Suzaku. That he might got the code of V.V. (after making Charles disappear.)

C.C also needed longer time to heal depending on the wound she got. So I think he just disappeared, living in peace after doing his part. However, this feeling of not doing anything will get boring to him. He needs an hobby. If they connect this sequel with the Boukoku no Akito movies, this could be interesting (which would be amazing in my opinion).

But enough of theories, Season 3 is pretty much confirmed now and we get to see 3 recap movies with new material (rewatched for 5th time the whole CG Story, so I'm prepared for this year :D)

Stop spreading false information.

An answer was given by one of the authors, which (unless you have the original) was generally translated as they wanted a more open ending.

It has literally always been in question - you don't put immortality into a show if you don't want to deal with that shit.


Nobody translated it as "open ended"
There's literally NOTHING indicating that.Only one outcome has proof while other is literally tinfoil hat theories not supported by the material.
The author even explained WHICH PARTS are open ended in the ending. Lelouch's fate was planned from the start of the show.

I am not spreading false information, I am combating it. I have dealt with hoaxes like that for years and heard pretty much every single "argument" presented. At this point its a a self defeating never ending cycle of same hoax theories being repeated and debunked ad nauseum.

Till there's no new information, only one outcome is supported by the story material.

Sure they could retcon it in the upcoming show but right now there's only one outcome that is there.


-sigh- nice source.

ciao.

The show is called Resurrection for a reason.

Well I hope within the 10 years, the creator had a good one built in his mind. I'm already okay of what happened from the previous ones and still okay for the sequel, let's just hope that it'll not ruin this masterpiece.

This genuinely surprised me when I heard about it a while back. None-the-less, I'm glad.

Leave masterpieces alone you money gobblers. REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

they're obviously after the $$$$. i don't see any reason why 3rd season is needed.

What a great way to kill a legacy. Might as well make another season of Death Note and Cowboy Bebop while we're at it. Lelouch will awaken his Mangekyou Sharingan and LOGH is superior to this prancing pretty boy in every shape and form.

Sighs...this is dumb... I loved this show...and this is dumb

But if we really need to.open up the horrible shipping wars again my God I'll o it lol. This will be fun.

In all seriousness though very disappointing ending wrapped up perfectly with his death and story arc. I kinda hope this is just a Big hoax like him driving the mule cart in that edited video put on YouTube all the C.C fans thought was real...


Actually no. The "happy ever after utopia"-ending is simply not something that should be used after ending the conflict with "a common enemy arose, the common enemy died. The end." Calling it "disappointing" doesn't even describe it.

I understand what the idea of "Zero Requiem" was about, but it should be evident that this was at best a short-term solution. The anime tried to hard to deny this problem at the very end.

The only thing I really hope here is that they don't continue to double down on that point by somehow making Lelouch's "resurrection" be the main reason for the central conflict of the new series. As long as they avoid that, I am glad that they can correct this big mistake now. I just hope that they DO correct that.


Lelouche's main goal from episode 1. Was to make "gentler world" for his sister, and of course to take revenge on his father. Both have been completed, not a perfect world but he did reach his goals. Lelouche understood he couldn't change man kinds nature that's why he set up so many safe guards after his death. The world isn't perfect that's why he made the black knights the world's sole army, made a unifying government to control most, but not all hostile countries, and the left a master strategist his brother in charge as a back up plan. I really don't understand why people hated the ending, yes the second season was a bit ridiculous in areas, but the ending was extremely solid. He didn't get a happy ending, which is more realistic then any other alternative. The reason it doesn't need a third season is they need to completely introduce a whole new plot just to keep it going. There are no new enemies, no unresolved conflicts everything has been wrapped up. The is obviously a cash grab, and cash grabs are almost never pulled off well.

Well, I've got mixed feelings about this.
Should rewatch previous seasons, ffs.

Even though the ending was satisfying, I always wanted a season 3 and now it's here!!! YES!!!

As someone who LOVED the first season, my first reaction "wow, really!?", second reaction "meh, I'll watch it when it's fully out, hope it doesn't suck".
