Tomofumi Ogasawara (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Endless Waltz: Glory of the Losers) launched the Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch Re; (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Re;) manga on Kadokawa's Comic Newtype website on Friday. Sunrise's Kōjirō Taniguchi (Code Geass: Akito the Exiled planning manager) is credited with the scenario based on the original Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion anime series.
The manga is described as the "definitive version" of the Code Geass manga. The announcement visual features the text, "Look, world. And you should wait. The arrival of the moment of truth." The story begins when Lelouch and Suzuku begin the Zero Requiem, a plan that the pair execute at the end of the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 anime.
The manga's next chapter will debut on June 29.
The manga is one of several new works for the franchise that has recently launched. Urushidama launched a comedy spinoff manga titled Katei Kyōshi no Lelouch-san (Lelouch the Home Tutor) on Comic Newtype in December. The Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch Gaiden - Shiro no Kishi, Kurenai no Yasha (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion - Lancelot & Guren) spinoff manga launched with a prologue chapter on Comic Newtype in November.
Additionally, an omnibus series of stories titled Code Geass Danshō - Mosaic no Kakera (Code Geass Story Fragment - Piece of the Mosaic) launched on Yatate Bunko, Sunrise's new light novel imprint, in fall 2017.
The third film in the recent compilation recap trilogy, Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch - Ōdō (lit.: The Imperial Path, official English subtitle: Glorification), opened in Japan on Saturday. The first film opened in Japan on October 21 and the second film opened in Japan on February 10. Funimation has licensed all three films.
