posted on by Amanda Whalen
Fans awaiting the upcoming trilogy of Code Geass anime films can now tide themselves over with three cakes featuring film visuals of Lelouch and Suzaku. The cakes can be reserved on the Premium Bandai website until 11:00 p.m. JST on September 21, and Bandai will deliver the cakes in late October.
The first cake features a visual of Lelouch as Zero in the first film in the trilogy, Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch - Kōdō (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion - The Awakening Path), which opens in Japan on October 21.
The second cake is printed with a visual of Suzaku Kururugi in the second film, Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch - Handō (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion - The Rebellion Path), which opens in Japan in February 2018.
The third cake features a visual of Lelouch as Emperor in the third film, Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch - Ōdō (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion - The Imperial Path), which opens in Japan in May 2018.
The images on the cakes are the same images as the recently revealed poster visuals for the films.
All three cakes are sponge cake with a middle layer of strawberry cream and peach pieces, and they are topped with dried strawberries and peaches. The cakes are approximately 11×15×5 cm (about 4.3 x 6 x 2 inches) in size and are priced at 2,970 yen (about US$27), not including tax or shipping and handling.
The upcoming anime film trilogy will recap all 50 episodes of both Code Geass anime series and feature new scenes and re-recorded lines by the original cast.
The original Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion television anime premiered in 2006, and the second season, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2, premiered in 2008. The series also received a five-part spin-off, the Code Geass: Akito the Exiled OVA, which had theatrical releases in Japan beginning in 2012 and ending in Februrary 2016.
