Not that there's any chance I'll get to play this, but I figure it was worth mentioning.

Separately...for the curious, I believe this was in one of the previous scans about Oz, but they've finally uploaded it to the website.

It's a two part interview between Eiji Nakada (mecha designer/animator), Goro Taniguchi (director) and a Sunrise representative.

In the interview they mention how they'd the KMF for the KOR before they got their customs. Also mention of Byaken's upgrade.

So Ernest Mcload owns a custom KMF. Leak says it's the Custom Melee Gekka from that twitter image, but no proof yet

Here's this month's Oz manga chapter summary.

Spoiler for Oz Manga Ch 15 Summary (Extended):


Spoiler for Oz Manga Ch 16 Summary:


Just like that photo story chapter where the Oldrin side characters appeared, it seems that this manga chapter focuses on the Orpheus side. It seems to occur after the third photo story chapter, but there will probably be discrepancies again between the manga and photo story like during the first battle in the Middle East. (Also, does anyone else think of a certain girl with glasses at the mention of a "new model bomb" in Area 11...? The following text also seems to lend credence that this involves the FLEIA bomb.)

Also, here's the translation on the info gordrol provided:

Quote:
1. The first half corrects part of the last chapter from NTA, and the second half begins with a battle scene on the Orpheus side.
2. Next, Oldrin and Orpheus both seem to be going to Area 11 and then to the Chinese Federation.
3. Request 1: Destroy the Britannian base stationed in Hong Kong (Complete)
4. Request 2: Investigate the new model bomb in Area 11 (Having witnessed a prototype model during the Black Rebellion, Rakshata hurried her investigation into it)
5. Request 3: Assassinate Schneizel who is visiting the Chinese Federation
6. Orpheus seems to infiltrate Ashford Academy.
It looks like the following chapters are finally turning to the aftermath of the Black Rebellion in R1. We'll probably get to see a lot of cameos from familiar characters, and hopefully get answers to questions that have remained about the timegap.

^ You mean Orpheus. That's the boy's name.

@EternalDreamer Thanks again for you monthly summaries and translations. If I may ask, why are there any discrepancies? Aren't both stories written by the same author?

Huh, looks like they're starting to preview unpublished chapters in the photo story-exclusive website. I wasn't going to bother with the summaries there, but since they went to the trouble of this, I'll translate it from now on as well. Here's a preview of next month's chapter.

Spoiler for Oz Photo Story Ch 16 Preview:


Also, to answer Kurohane's question, the ones responsible for the manga and photo story are different people. Obviously some amount of collaboration is present, but it seems like they each take care of the finer details on their own, which lead to discrepancies popping up. (For instance, in the photo story, Orpheus meets Wizard for the first time during the battle in the Middle East, but in the manga, it is suggested that he already knows him. The way that battle plays out is also vastly different between the two versions, though that can't be helped perhaps, since photo stories usually give only minimal detail in describing scenes, while the manga can visually show much more kinetic and drawn out scenes, especially in battle.) There is also a discrepancy between the photo story and Akito the Exiled when one chapter briefly crossed over with the events in the OVA movies. Because of this, I usually consider the manga as the main canon with the photo story as semi-canon; just consider anything that doesn't directly contradict events in the manga or the rest of canon as true, leaving aside the parts that do as the "author's personal interpretation/preference in story writing".

Do we know Taniguchi's level of involvement with Oz?

By the way Eternal Dreamer, thank you so much for your consistent updates!

Here's basically a list of all the people and companies involved in Oz:

Quote:
Planning: Sunrise, Taniguchi Goro and Okouchi Ichiro

Composition (Photo Story Text): Morita Shigeru

Character Design: Kimura Takahiro

Knightmare Design: Nakata Eiji and Astrays

Mechanical Design: Teraoka Kenji

Color Scheme: Iwasawa Reiko

Comic Drawing (Manga): Toujou Chika

Cooperation: Bandai Collector's Division, Monthly Hobby Japan, Hobby Japan Editorial Department, Newtype Ace Editorial Department and Kadokawa Shoten
Based on this, it doesn't look like Taniguchi is directly involved with it very much.

Akira Yasuda tweeted that the Lancelot version that'll appear in Akito will use elements from his original design that was cleaned up by Eiji Nakada.

Updating on the Code Geass: Maelstrom of Libra social network game, they've launched a website with more information:

http://codegeass.bngames.net/

From what I can tell, they might be connecting this to Oz as well since they mention Peacemark and Pluton, etc.

Just some interesting info from that HJ staff interview:

-Nakata talks about possible pre R2 KOR custom mechs. They would use Sutherlands and Gloucesters as base. Gino's would have large boosters and a scythe like weapon for high speed irregular pattern attacks. Waltefled's would use a huge sword but would need reinforced legs and better balance. Just wishful thinking for now

I wish this would happen since OZ was supposed to be CG version of MSV but all we're getting now are lame recolors besides 6 or so original designs...

Well, Mecha isn't the main focus of CG to start with!

If you take a close look, the blonde haired girl's character design resembles Alice from Nightmare of Nunnally. Based on her uniform in the game's screenshot, looks like she's from the Geass Order.
