Thanks. Well, at least we finally have a specific date.

It's going to be a long summer, but I still vastly prefer delays over rushing.

And it seems Anna is her childhood friend, and some sort of crazy genius who single-handedly designed the Alexander.

And what's a civilian Neuroscientist doing in the cast? That's a rather strange job description in a mecha anime. Is Sophie studying Geass? Who knows, but that's my guess.

We've seen some 3D images of brain in trailer, so maybe she is studying geass, or how does it effect humans...

Or it has nothing to do with geass at all.

Xing Hyuuga Shing? Wut. Why is there a Japanese guy with a mixed Chinese name in the Euro Britannian St Michael Knights unit? He has blue hair, just like Akito, and they both have Hyuuga in their name. Wut? :P

This is sort of a Code Geass trademark. The idea is to have individuals fighting against their own people. It makes it more interesting, as otherwise you just have plain old factions. Lulu did it first.

That part is expected. What I want to know is why he has a Chinese name. That part makes no sense!

Maybe he is a half-Japanese, half-Chinese relative of Akito, who became a (Honorary?) Britannian by, for example, betraying Japan during the invasion?

It also seems like they're spelling his first name as Shin, actually, going by the website.

In any case, the rest of the information is pretty interesting.

I don't particular like "genius" child characters like Anna though, but we'll see what they do with that.

The brain scientist is probably either related to monitoring her, studying Geass or both.

Yeah I know the jpg says Shin. The entire name is really confusing because Shin would be a Japanese reading while Xing would be a Chinese reading, but Hyuuga is definitely Japanese, and Shing is definitely Chinese.

.....

Man, I think I have probably put more thought into this than the creators did while naming the character. :P

That's the thing. The Neuroscientist is introduced by being hired to study the genius girl. But it is obvious to me they just needed her in the story because they would eventually discover Geass mid-story, and needed her around to coincidentally be available to research it.

Yes, it seems very likely they'll use her as a source of relevant exposition.

Which isn't a bad idea, considering we never had any scientific explanation for Geass.

Very little attention was given to the "Code-R" research under Clovis, even before Lelouch just went and killed everyone involved during the attack on the Geass cult.

Following the links, I manage to dig out a few more bits of info. The problem is I could only figure out Kanji, and google translate doesn't work on scans.
I did find out that Lilya got her position as officer fair-and-square by being an outstanding performer in the military academy. That the main cast are based in an old castle, and that their commanding officer is born and raised in Europe but of Japanese heritage. The genius girl who designed Alexander is physically frail.

Team W-0 was formed for one reason only; the EU needed someone to do the outrageous, dangerous, and impossible missions. The chance of survival is so low, that they are not willing to commit their most important soldiers. So they sent those who are disposable; Japanese expats who are disrespected by the European military, who were born into a world where they no longer have a homeland. i.e. like the Polish in real life WWII.

The W-0 doesn't technically exist; mostly because if they failed and died, the EU can just deny there ever was such a group. Oh, and when CLAMP was designing their uniforms, CLAMP they based their inspiration on the Kamikaze pilot suits of WWII. Don't know how much of that remained after re-design.
