Many people know that Hajime Yatate is not a real person but rather a collective pseudonym that is sometimes used in the credits for certain anime TV series produced by Sunrise, particularly when it concerns Mobile Suit Gundam and related spin-offs.

However, this doesn't automatically apply to each and every Sunrise show ever made. In short, Hajime Yatate is not always present in credits. Assuming that as a default fact is simply speculation and in several cases an incorrect attribution.

For example, he has never been listed in the credits for Code Geass. Sunrise is directly mentioned in a few of the productions, mind you, but not as "Hajime Yatate".

See:

Original Story: Goro Taniguchi, Ichiro Okouchi

Original Work: Sunrise, Goro Taniguchi, Ichiro Okouchi
http://www.geass.jp/akito/staff.html

He's not present in Code Geass R2 nor in the Nunnally in Wonderland spin-off either.

Not even in the new Code Geass movie.

I haven't been keeping up with the Encyclopedia on a regular basis, but I think this is a relatively recent change. For the sake of accuracy, this credit should be removed from the Code Geass property and, by extension, perhaps it should be verified when it comes to other Sunrise productions too.
