Hizah! Code Geass is coming back yet again, promising more exciting mindbenders and ‘what a twist’ moments.
Having been a huge fan of the franchise, this news comes slightly bittersweet. A cryptic “rebirth” message left on Bandai’s mobile phone website hints at an alternate universe re-telling of the series. As much as seeing the events unfold in a completely different context is nice to have - Lelouch as a black girl from Harlem anyone? - a sequel to R2 would prove more appealing. It would be interesting to see how they create a continuation of the series after the events of R2. Wait, was that worthy of a spoiler tag? Well, that serves you right for not having watched it already. Sunrise has not yet confirmed any actual plans for the continuation of the series - so right now, we are on Code Speculation here at A3K.
The aforementioned cryptic message (the image of which can be seen on Anime News Network's site) reads as follows, thanks to Fernando Ramos for the translation:
NEW CODE GEASS!
A NEW PROJECT HAS BEGUN.
WAIT FOR MORE NEWS IN 2010!!
This is a new life... the day that I am reborn anew.
From this day forth, Geass welcomes a new phase.
As the day draws near, certainly shall you all come under this new Geass!
Hope for it! Hold onto it! Crave for it!
Have you forgetten?
With Geass, we can all accomplish something like we wish for.
As long as you wish for it, Geass will again......
YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN! YES WE... oh wait. Wrong rallying speech.
