The manga will begin with an original story that depicts the blank period leading up to the resurrection.
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 the Comic Newtype website in May 2018.
