Sunrise’s General Manager of Overseas Development, Masayuki Ozaki, confirmed at Otakon on Sunday that the studio is looking forward to the new Code Geass anime project. The project will be released in 2012 as it’s currently behind schedule.
The new season titled Code Geass Gaiden Bōkoku no Akito, was originally announced last year. Bōkoku no Akito will be set within the same world as Lelouch, the previous protagonist, but with different characters and within Europe.
I have a mixed feelings for this. Part of me is quite skeptic about this whole 3rd season. How can it be a 3rd season when the previous protagonist isn’t there? Or shall I say any of the characters from the previous CG? I bet this news will raise the expectations especially from the fans of the series. But I think I’ll be keeping mine low so I won’t be disappointed in case it won’t live up to its predecessors.
Another part of me (actually, the fangirl in me) is VERY excited for the new season. I’m a big fan of CG so this is really exciting. I am hoping that the protagonist this time is as loveable as Lelouch were. <33333
