The January issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype magazine is announcing on Thursday that Tomomasa Takuma (Code Geass: Nightmare of Nunnally, Kurogane Communication) is drawing a manga that is tentatively titled Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya (Code Geass: Jet-Black Renya or Code Geass: Renya of the Blackness) next year. Goro Taniguchi, the director and story co-creator of the original Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion television anime series, created the new manga's story concepts and is scripting the story. This is the first manga that Taniguchi is directly scripting himself.

The story takes place in the same official Code Geass history as the anime, but in a different era. The title character, Renya, is a 17-year-old boy with a mechanical left arm and shuriken throwing stars as his weapons of choice. The story begins when Renya encounters a mysterious, perpetually young witch named "Reifū C.C." C.C. has appeared in Japan's historical Edo era to seek a new partner for a covenant. Meanwhile, a mysterious man, with a striking resemblance to the character Lelouch of the original anime, also appears with unknown intentions.

The new manga is part of next year's new Code Geass project launch. Code Geass producer Yoshitaka Kawaguchi revealed on the franchise's website that the new project will feature the simultaneous releases of serialized comics, music, new products under development, and visual works.
and now we know

I wonder if this new manga will be anything like the manga Code Geass: Tales of an Alternate Shogunate?

I realize that was an AU manga series but still...

I already like Code Geass in the first season, even though I (fking) hate Mechas with a passion, and that says a lot about how good the first season was. Now that it's set in the Edo period with Samurai, Ninja, you name it, and considering I generally like that theme a lot better, I'm gonna love this. I wonder what they're gonna come up with this time, and the connection between Lulu and this new character.

This news has brightened my day and 2010 shall be its fate. It'd be even more awesome if it was another kind of anime in production; regardless if it's related to R2 or not. There is also the whole Code Geass code history that hasn't been quite touched in-depth. We still don't know that much about it or where the origins of it came from.

I'm even more worried about the protagonist in the upcoming manga project. Will he be more awesome than Lelouch ever was or will he succumb to the fate of most people hating on him? Stay tuned!

Lol ?

This new project is a manga ? Seriously ? I didn't see them making such announcements when they published the previous ones.

If that's a manga, I'll end up being extremely disappointed. Don't care about mangas. :/

Well, we don't for sure. It could just be one thing that they're working on. It's possible that they could announce an anime some time in the upcoming months (but yeah, it would be a gip if all it was was this manga)

Nah..! Our average Code Geass fans seem to be fairly inexperienced at disseminating information. Now if this was a news concerning Haruhi, the Haruhi-fans very well have predicted the forecast by the minute from someone sneezing.

Jokes aside, you don't update your webpage with a coverpage, promise to tell there will be new information in a specific magazine, and also mention the fact that a script by a specific individual is also ready, just because you want to announce for an upcoming manga. Yeah.

But isn't it just so much more relatable to today's average trendy forum user to break everything down to "Oh they must be trolling us". That's clearly the reason behind anything and everything.

More or less. Super expectation and personal glorification for how things should be have more to blame on matters like these. Oh, and let's not forget the schedule issues. When I want to watch this thing on Monday, why is it being scheduled to air on Wednesday? Production companies are also getting smarter, and utilizing instant communication tools such as the big, giant machine called ze-internetz to their full advantage to spread the chaos and confusion.

I think I'm done for today harassing the Code Geass fans. I'll come back for more later.

What i concern is the manga is just one of the Geass Project. There's still a lot of things yet to reveal (game, music, visual novel, etc...)

But I hope the new series continue from the "Cart driver" scene...

I doubt that.
But it seems its a flashback?
Well i guess it seems a little weird XD.
My prediction! This will nfinally explain why CC makes fun of Kallen and teases her.
Lelouch in a past life eventually got married to Kallen in a past life. Thus for this reason CC seems to Tease Kallen because its happen before. That's my story and I am sticking to it!

i have a fear that they'll some how involve giant mechas despite being in edo period. I mean some how they have mechanical arms already...
Personal I hope it somehow relates to sayako's ninja background.

I don't think you have to worry about that to be honest. To put Knightmare Frames in the Edo period would not only be incredibly lame and silly, it would also mess with the continuity that has already been established in canon Code Geass. I don't think Taniguchi, who did in fact help form the original story even though he wasn't the main writer, would do something like that.

This story takes place somewhere between 76 and 341 years prior to the birth of Lelouch (1658-1923 atb). Lelouch was born December 5 1999 atb and his mother used to be a KMF pilot. The frame she piloted was incredibly simple in comparison to the frames that were used during Britannia's invasion of Japan 2010 atb and even at that point Knightmare Frames were not the common backbone of armies around the world. This technological difference is what made Britannia's invasion of Japan so simple, the defenders could not stand up to the Britannian Knightmare Frames so it was a crushing defeat.

To leap hundreds of years back in time and put Knightmare Frames in the Edo period would make no sense at all. They might be putting the Sakuradite to some good use though. Since it's a natural resource in the world of Code Geass I assume that Mt Fuji will still be the by far richest Sakuradite source and since it's a fictional, supernatural resource I'm sure it could unlock some possibilities that would usually not belong in the Edo period. Renya is sure wearing... something... in that picture.

Unlike the previous mangas, this manga is written directly by the co-creator, Taniguchi. So the new manga should be very good. Also, this is the first of a series of mangas done by the anime staff directly. The Nightmare of Nunnally, while it's good, is not canon. Thus, it is not likely to be made into an anime.

Also, the new series is simply unique to the manga. Okouchi might even do a Code Geass manga series as well.

Besides, mangas are a cost effective way of telling the Code Geass story. And its a way to test various Code Geass projects. As long as its done by the anime staff, it should be a successful series.

There are a lot of people on other forums (not going to name them) that suggest C.C. and Renya will have a contract together, while the Lelouch guy is the anti-hero/antagonist. I think the reason they think that is because Reifuu C.C. is on one side of Renya while the Lelouch is on the other.

The announcement you mean? Well, so far we have a new manga in the works that takes place in the Edo period and is going to be part of the Code Geass canon. No news on an anime yet, but we're still hopin'.

Don't take this the wrong way. It's not that I don't agree with some of what you just wrote but I fail to see what it has to do with my post. You'll have to excuse me but did you mean to quote my post? Since you quoted it I assume that this was a response to that post and I don't really see the connection.

That's pretty much a given I'd say. After all it was stated that "Renya and his friend meets C.C. and face fate head-on." We also know that C.C. spent a lot of time looking for a contractor who could fulfill the terms of her contract so it's not like she's not going to grant someone the power of Geass. I'd like to think that Renya, being the protagonist of the new Code Geass chapter, would be the most suitable contractor.
