The Japanese distributor Bandai Visual has announced on Friday that it shipped over 100,000 Blu-ray Discs and DVDs for the first volume of Sunrise's Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 robot anime sequel series. Like Macross Frontier last month, Code Geass R2 volume 1 began selling on both formats simultaneously on Friday. The first Code Geass R2 DVD was the bestselling DVD release in Japan for the last two days. The 100,000-plus-disc shipping statistic is 140% higher than the first shipment for the original Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion's first volume. All told, over 900,000 Code Geass discs have been shipped so far.
Bandai Entertainment has released the first two Code Geass DVDs in North America, and it announced that it will run Code Geass R2 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block after the first series finishes its television run.
