Bandai's mobile phone site promises more details in 2010; comic, music, visual works planned
Bandai's mobile phone website m-pub.channel.or.jp is hosting
a graphic that reads as follows:
New Code Geass
Project Launch Green-Lit!
Wait for more info in 2010!!
The image adds that this project represents a "rebirth" and that Geass
will take a new step starting today. The message is signed with the name, "ZERO."
In the January 2009 issue of Gakken
magazine, the Sunrise
anime studio indicated
the possibility of more plans for its Code Geass
. Sunrise created
and animated the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
television anime series and its R2
did not indicate the format that any hypothetical future plans might take. The Adult Swim
television programming block ran Bandai Entertainment
's adaptation of the R2
sequel in North America.
