Fans itching for some more Geass will be pleased to hear that Masayuki Ozaki, the General Manager of Overseas Development at Animation Studio Sunrise confirmed that the studio is “looking forward to releasing” the new Code Geass anime project next year!
Code Geass fans looking for more Lelouch will be disappointed, however, as Ozaki went on to say that the project will take place:
in the same world as Lelouch [the protagonist of the earlier Code Geass anime] except with different characters (…) the stage is set in Europe, so we’ll see a lot of European countries.
Beyond that bombshell of a story tidbit, we’ve also gotten word on who the director will be: Kazuki Akane ( of The Vision of Escaflowne, Noein – to your other self).
So Code Geass will continue on without both Taniguchi and Lelouch? Seems like Kazuki-san has some big shoes to fill. Personally, I loved Noein and Escaflowne, and I’m curious to see what Kazuki-san will bring to the franchise. What about everyone else? What do you think about this rather explosive bit of Anime news? Leave your comments!
