There's a side-story to the first season in the works. There is not a post-R2 third season in the making.

Hi Strike,
This is just my honest opinion that I will provide towards your question. The producers have stated that Code Geass R2 is over. Nothing beyond Season Two will be produced. However, expanding the story around Season One is quite possible. This leads me to believe that the Code Geass saga of 2017 will continue, since the original story for the second season was to continue in the same year before it was scrapped and moved to 2018. It seems that the production staff do not wish to have anything to do with Code Geass R2 at all, as far as continuing the story from that standpoint.

If anything, if anyone wants to see Lelouch alive, the story would have to expand upon the First Season, whose format was quite different from Season Two. Some might say that I am making this crap up. But just look at the things that has been announced so far. I don't believe that the staff liked Season Two very much. Otherwise, there would have been an announcement of a third season that continues from where Code Geass R2 had ended. Obviously, there might be plans to bring back Lelouch. But it would have to be around the First Season where Stage 25 had left off in the year 2017.

He's merely saying he doesn't think the staff liked R2. Granted, he'd like them to remake it, but we've been given no hint anything like that shall come to pass.

I just saw the info on this new Code Geass project. Is this in the same continuity of the first two series or is this using a "star system" where the characters may look and act similar but are otherwise different? If so I think it would be cool if there was a character like Shirley who was the main villain for the whole series, and a character like Nunnally who was a unstoppable killing machine.

Akito and Renya are both of the same continuity as the anime. The other mangas (Suzaku, NoN, etc) are all different continuities.

Banished a bunch of off-topic posts in the eternal pit and the following was the only off-topic post that was worth keeping:

Zetsubou. Please be more tolerable; gently and kindly goes far - the Code theorists may soften their stance because they aren't being attacked. It's not an automatic trolling if someone has differentiating views from you.

Just because you've dealt with cumbersome and appalling theorists in the past doesn't make them ALL cumbersome and appalling.

By all means attack them if they continue to be 'rampant', but given the chance the theorists can be more polite if aggressions are dropped simultaneously - from BOTH sides. You're side and their side.

If you won't change your mind then simply overlook this thread. I'll volunteer to send you singlepost links to the new information presented.

Or you could go for the 'other' route and continue to alienate the other parties, with the possibility of further infraction.

I am one of the group who believe Lelouch Vi Britannia is dead. But I won't denounce people having their own opinion.

I'm not saying you are wrong, I'm saying if something fails the first time try a different approach. It may be the same group, but different people. Give them a chance.

I'm also directing that to all Code Theorists. Don't be antagonistic. At least try and be civil and remain on an appropriate wavelength.
Couldn't have said it any better!

We can talk about anything as long as we can relate back to the thread topic at hand and as long as we don't cross the personal boundary. This applies to every thread in this forum. If you are so emotionally invested in a topic to the point you are no longer capable of entertaining any other views without coming across as overbearing (to put it mildly), you need to just come to a full stop. It's time to give yourself a break from the futility. There are still people believe Moon Landing is a hoax. People can believe whatever they want to because every perspective is reached from its own set of reasoning. You can't change those views no matter how right you are if they choose to ignore it.

Anyway, sorry to hold back on the topic. Hopefully, this will be the end of it. Let's get on with the topic.

Hi Lost Cause,
It was mentioned in the Newtype magazine(and other sources) that the production of Code Geass R2 was a very difficult and frustrating experience for the staff because they were advised to rewrite the format of the storyline to fit the new time schedule for the Sunday 5PM timeslot. The first season was broadcast at 1 AM in Japan, which was a latenight time schedule. Thus that format was quite different from that of second season. Just compare the first two seasons in terms of the style and tone of the format that was presented. The first season presented a more mature format while the second season presented a format that was slightly geared towards a younger audience. The fanservice was far greater in the second season than in the first season.

Thus, one can only assume what might have been if the staff was allowed to retain their original storyline version for Code Geass R2. While I would love to see them remake Code Geass R2, we'll have to wait and see how things turn out for the outcoming projects. The only hints of a remake is the notion that the new side stories for the anime takes place around 2017 instead of 2018. I do agree with the staff that to continue the story after Code Geass R2 had ended would not make any sense. The ending, in my opinion, should be left the way it is. Although, an alternate storyline with Lelouch of the Rebellion could continue from where Stage 25 of first season had left off. This was the version where Lelouch won the conflict against Suzaku. But, don't take my word for it. Just check out Code Geass: Not as Planned on the Goggle search engines. There is a very large debate about it: Pros and Cons.

Two major nations/landmasses/political grounds have beentouched on so far.

Namely, Japan and Europe.

Britania itself has only been glimpsed, and we barely got to see the Chinese Federation.

So, after this this project, we still have three virgin-territories for stories in this fascinating alternate-Earth, assuming Sunrise still has fight in them to continue after this:

Chinese Federation (Full story set on it like this new project does with Europe)

Australia (Neutral Ground, RIPE for political play).

Britania proper (One wonders how Lelouch bought a "California Hotdog" in a Tokyo park when Califronia never actually existed in Code Geass.)

Thoughts of the afternoon.

These images were released in the latest Newtype. This time it isn't about the new project, unfortunately, but I did manage to get manage to get something relevant from the top-left of the page:

Code Geass GAIDEN: Akito of the Ruined Nation
  • The next information announcement will be on September 10th. The official website will also open at the same time!
Looks like we're not going to get anymore information this summer, from Newtype at least. We'll have to wait and see if anyone else will be forthcoming on this. In the meantime, we'll just have to see how the new manga turns out. (Any raw scans on that score yet, by the way?)

I think I've decided that at this point I'd like to see a remake of R2 more than anything. even if they wouldn't make an anime, i'd like to see a book or a manga.

imo the manga's plot sounds more interesting than the akito anime, but i don't know if i'll ever get around to it. i'm not really a manga person.

and three months until any more info?

P.S. - i think somebody here said they sent a letter to Taniguchi? if so, what was the address, and did you just leave it in english? thanks in advance.

I would like a continuation of R2. Many things were left unexplained and somehow we're expected to accept their naive vision of the world and just say people were able to accept each other and put their differences aside by blaming everything on Lelouch.

That's like saying one guy was able to change human nature over night. Ridiculous imo. Once the person responsible for the evils is out of the picture we find someone else to blame it on, or we go back to the basics, greed, corruption, discrimination because of ignorance, war and terrorism from greed and corruption...I'd like them to show us a more believable world and kill off some characters as kharmic retribution although this last bit is certainly not believable since in real life the biggest sons of bitches usually go unpunished and bathe in wealth.

I would like to thank Eternal Dreamer once again for that bit of information.

So it's likely that we won't see anything else about Akito before September?

In that case, I suppose we'll have to keep waiting for more details on Renya.

@Revolutionist:

To keep things short, I would say Schneizel's skepticism is meant to represent the fact that the creators aren't unaware of the existence of greed and conflict. Lelouch just countered this with the idea that people will continue to struggle for happiness, which is also another part of human nature, but the question is left intentionally open-ended. Lelouch has faith in the positive impulses of humanity, Schneizel was more cynical. Human nature has two sides, after all, and the debate could go on forever.

Let's not lose focus here. The ending of R2 is almost entirely meant to serve as the end of Lelouch's personal story, which was the core of the plot. It's not the end of the world's history nor of the human conflicts within it. Life will go on.

But whatever happens afterwards would be a completely different chapter of a separate story and, just as well, something that would demand a new project. I'm not interested, personally, at least not without a damn good premise to go along with it.

However, the point of this topic isn't to talk about R2 or its ending for the Nth time and there has been no announcement about any sort of sequel or remake, so there's really nothing to be gained from going too far down this path.

So... You want the Code Geass world to have more horrible people for the sake of realism, but then want unrealistic levels of punishment for villainy?

Then it isn't a realistic world that you want, it is just that you want a different fantasy world all together from what Sunrise offered.

The trailer seems to imply Code Geass: Gaiden will take place in Eastern Europe. I wonder if it expands on CC's backstory and the origin of people like her.

One of the frustrating aspects of R2 is how it flushed the overarching plot element in season 1 and the series away. CC's backstory and general origins were never explored. She's much older than anyone in the series but the only part of her life that seems to be touched upon is that within the emperors lifetime. Even then we don't even get the full story behind her ties to China.

A remake of R2 with a total different story would be cool.

An R2 remake would be superb. But alas, no. I doubt it'll happen. Though it may... This is Sunrise.

Actually this takes place during the 'missing year' of Season 1 and Season 2. I think it won't touch on immortals, since this is going to be akin to MS 08th team. But who knows? It's too soon to judge, additionally little is known about it other then it being a project in the making.

Hopefully they will give Akito Gaiden some shine time, too.
