The Code Geass New Project Presentation livestream event announced a new anime series on Saturday—titled Code Geass: Dakkan no Z (Code Geass: Z of the Recapture). The new anime will follow the events after the Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection) sequel film, which takes place in an alternate universe.

Director: Yoshimitsu Oohashi (Kokkoku, Sacred Seven)
Script: Noboru Kimura (Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?, Gundam Build Divers)
Character Design: Takahiro Kimura (Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch, Gun x Sword)
Knightmare Design: ASTRAYS (Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito - Yokuryuu wa Maiorita mechanical design)
Studio: Sunrise

Director Gorou Taniguchi (Planetes), screenwriter Ichirou Ookouchi (Devilman: Crybaby), and animation studio Sunrise are credited for the original concept. All-female manga artist group CLAMP (Cardcaptor Sakura, xxxHOLiC) is returning as the original character designer.

The event also announced a smartphone game titled Code Geass: Genesic Re;Code, scheduled for release in Spring 2021. The new anime series and the smartphone game are both part of the franchise's Next 10 Years Project.

The original Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) television anime premiered in 25 episodes in Fall 2006. The immense popularity of the first season led to the development of the second season, Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2), which broadcast in Spring 2008. Bandai Visual released the Nunnally in Wonderland original video anime in July 2012.

The five-part Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito (Code Geass: Akito the Exiled) original video anime series opened in theaters in Japan between July 2012 and February 2016. The spin-off takes place between the first and second season.

An anime film trilogy recapping the two anime seasons screened in Japan in October 2017, February 2018, and May 2018, with each installment featuring several changes to the original storyline. The Fukkatsu no Lelouch sequel film, taking place in the alternate continuity established in the recap trilogy, debuted last February.

Bandai Entertainment originally licensed the anime in North America in 2007 and released the two seasons on home video from 2008 to 2010. Funimation reacquired the anime series in 2013 and shipped both seasons in 2016. The distributor also licensed the recap trilogy and the sequel film and released them last March and on February 25, respectively.

Why does the man with the gun and pompadour remind me a bit of Orpheus Zevon? Something about his expression exudes his personality. Maybe Best Smexy Boi will be going on a journey to destroy Lelouch's world and save Best Twin Tail Girl Monica and Best Mysterious Booty Dorothea.

Person trash something then next person replies by trashing other things such as way of mal.
What I like the most is when the shows that they end up trashing just so happens to be popular ones because then it becomes clear that their "hate" is superficial af lol

Those shows are objectively not trash lol

Those of you wet blankets in here: nobody is forcing you to watch. Cry in your own corner and let the rest of us get hyped.

Nice to see Char Aznable making his way into the Code Geass franchise, apparently.

Sweet I can't wait to watch it. Super excited. :D

R2 was such a perfect ending for the series, why must they continue ruining everything... At this point I feel like I'm having less and less favorite media that don't get unnecessary sequels. Well, at least they admit it's an alternative world/timeline. I'll just have to ignore these.
if its any consolation the alternative universe thing is legitimently a pretty big thing cause the entire reason these events happen is cause a few other characters that died in the TV timeline actually survive the recap movies which in turn is what prevents you know who in R2's ending from dying. What I'm getting at is you absolutely can ignore all of this.

I'm looking forward to this one. I need to finish the 2nd season of CODE : Geass.

Jan 10, 2021 10:49 PM by Thecoolguy001

Definitely looking forward to this! :D

Okay so, who's the main character? And who is "Z"? Is it suzaku? Because I think, Z is stand for zero which now is suzaku?

We don't know the new characters names even the protagonist yet and probably won't for a while. Hopefully soon need to know the name of the cute girl.

I wonder if we will get Villetta's grown kid or significantly aged up original cast since it takes place in the same universe and timeline. I don't think any of them would really play any important roles just show up as cameo.

The last movie was quite average at best, for something that boasts Code Geass in its name.

They are almost like starting anew here, may this lead up to some new and interesting things and a bit of good but moderated fanservice for the old fans.

Oh blimey, this can go either which way. I do think they will do it justice though.
