The official website for the Code Geass: Akito the Exiled anime project confirmed on Saturday that Jun Fukuyama is joining the cast as Julius Kingsley. Fukuyama voiced lead character Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. Julius is listed as a strategist of the Britannia Empire alongside Suzaku Kururugi.
Code Geass: Akito the Exiled (Bōkoku no Akito) follows a side story set in the early summer of Revolution Year 228. This anime focuses on the invasion of the E.U. by the Holy Britannian Empire and special division “Wyvern” Knightmare corps. These corps are comprised entirely of Japanese teenagers and commanded by Layla Malkal (Maaya Sakamoto), a former Britannian Aristocrat. The story follows Akito Hyuuga (Miyu Irino) as he and the rest of the Wyvern corps are plunged into the battlefield with a 5% chance of survival.
Kazuki Akane (Birdy the Mighty: Decode, Vision of Escaflowne) directed and wrote the screenplay with Miya Asakawa (Turn A Gundam, Polar Bear's Café). As in the previous two television series, Takahiro Kimura adapted Clamp's original character designs for animation. Akira Yasuda returned to design the mechanical Knightmare units with a soundtrack by Ichiko Hashimoto (RahXephon). The anime studio Sunrise, the previous Code Geass director Goro Taniguchi, and the previous series script supervisor Ichiro Okouchi are credited with the original story.
