The long awaited continuation to Code Geass has finally been announced as taking the form of a new gaiden.
The continuation is entitled コードギアス GAIDEN 亡国のアキト / Code Geass GAIDEN Boukoku no Akito, “The Ruined Land of Akito.”
The show is unsurprisingly to be produced by Sunrise, with the expected CLAMP character design. Direction is said to be by former Sunrise employee and Gundam veteran Kazuki Akane; he is now probably best know for directing Birdy the Mighty.
The announcement itself comes by way of bonus material included with the “Kiseki no Tanjobi” event disc.
The story is vaguely summarised thusly:
a.t.b 2017. A KnightMare unit of 11 youths embark on an operation to save their comrades stranded on the European front, their odds of success only 5%.
Just how this fits in with established canon is not yet clear, but it does appear an entirely new cast will be featuring.
