The second manga is tentatively titled Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch, the same title as the main anime series, and is described as a "definitive edition." Tomofumi Ogasawara (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Endless Waltz: Glory of the Losers) is drawing the manga, which is slated to launch on Comic Newtype in 2018.
The Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch Gaiden - Shiro no Kishi, Kurenai no Yasha (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion - Lancelot & Guren) spinoff manga (pictured above) launched with a prologue chapter on Comic Newtype on November 26. The manga's first chapter will debut on December 22. The manga centers on stories about both Suzaku and Kallen that were not portrayed in the original story. Bisui Takahashi (Shūmatsu Sekai no Spellbreaker light novels) is penning the scenario, and Takahiro Kimura is drawing the character designs. Atsushi Soga is drawing the art. Astrays is responsible for the new Knightmare Frame designs.
