^I used google docs(well, google drive now) to convert images to text(you can choose such an option when uploading the image).

Thanks for the details, Vallen!

Just to add, the W-0 in the trailer is described in-story as Gaijin by the Europeans. It seems once again Sunrise is reflecting some of their less pleasant cultural aspects, putting the shoe in the other foot, in order to make a hidden moral point. I respect that.

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.
thanks so much it was an interesting summary post...
I guess the theme of this series is survival mode...
I think most of the cast will probably die...

what about the LULU scan?

Can't help you with the Lulu scan, not enough kanji. And anyway it is just a promotion for the Code Geass Pachinko game machine. So no story.

I actually expect most of the Akito crew to survive, because I expect one of them to get a Geass power at some point. They might be sent on suicidal missions, but a little superpower at the right time can work miracles, as Lulu proved.

The Lulu scan is once again about pachinco and stuff

Cool. I hope there's an epic action scene where Akito rushes his brother (?) with that knife of his, and the guy blocks the knife... WITH HIS ARMORED FINGERS. That would be awesome.

We're all judging based on appearances here, but...while he is clearly designed to be a villain, Shin doesn't strike me as the Schneizel-type. In fact...with those finger claws (or whatever they are) I'd expect him to be more ruthless, less calm and collected. Schneizel didn't really get his hands dirty...well, aside from shooting Diethard after becoming Zero's slave. But most of the time, he simply manipulated people from behind the scenes and never got too involved.

To me, Shin looks like he would be willing to get into a mecha or, quite literally, cross swords with Akito. Who, as said before, is probably his half-brother or something.

Just as well, Jean doesn't really make me think of Cornelia. If anything, I'd rather compare her to early season one Villetta (when she was basically Jeremiah's assistant, at least for a short while) in terms of design/role, but that still says nothing about what her attitude will be. Her expression seems more stern or even blank.

I guess it's interesting, but you might want to put that in another thread.

That's from OZ the Reflection, which is a manga, not the Akito OVA.

The projects are separate, so that image is off-topic.

Yes well, Shin/Xing (can I just call him Evil-Hyuuga? ) is a knight after all, so we already know that he's trained in combat and is going to be more hands on. In fact, with Akito, both the lead character and the main villain (as shown so far) are combat soldiers, not planners. This is clearly the direction that the director Akane is planning to take this OVA - it will be more action packed and about the danger of actual combat, instead of planning and scheming in the background.

Gimme my sword fights now!

Short question, when is Akito suppose to take place? During R1, between R1&R2, during R2 or after R2?
