posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The September issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Comp Ace magazine announced on Saturday that the Code Geass: Oz the Reflection 02 (Code Geass : Sōbō no Oz 02) manga will launch in the next issue on August 26. The first Code Geass: Oz the Reflection spinoff manga launched in 2012 and ended last month.
The manga will continue the story of Aldrin Zevon, a girl in the Britannia Empire's anti-terrorist unit Glinda Knights who pilots the KMF Lancelot Grail. (The crest of the Glinda Knights indicates that the name is a reference to Glinda the Good Witch from the Oz novels.)
The first series' fourth compiled volume shipped in Japan in February. Eiji Nakata, the designer of the Knightmare Frames in the original Code Geass television series, designed the KMFs in Code Geass: Oz the Reflection, and fellow mechanical designer Kenji Teraoka (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) also returned from the previous Code Geass projects. The television anime's character designer Takahiro Kimura drafted the rough character designs for Oz the Reflection.
The multimedia Code Geass spinoff also launched a photo story in Hobby Japan magazine in 2012. Newtype Ace magazine bundled a Code Geass: Oz the Reflection original picture drama DVD in 2013.
