Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion celebrates its 15th anniversary with a special new key visual! The original Sunrise animated series debuted in Japan in 2006, and has since spawned a huge franchise that includes not only this original two-series entry, but tons of OVA episodes, sequels, spinoffs, and even a whole lot. new canon sparked by three recap films and an official sequel released not too long ago. On top of that, Sunrise previously announced plans to return to the franchise with a special 10-year list of new projects.
Code Geass celebrated its tenth anniversary a few years ago with a new roster of special projects and is now entering its 15th anniversary. To celebrate this new milestone, the franchise launched a new special visual for Lelouch of the Rebellion. You can check it out below from the show’s official Twitter account, as it also celebrates its new release in Japan for the anniversary. This is probably far from the only new celebration of such an important anniversary for the franchise, as a whole new series is also in development for the franchise.

Sunrise announced late last year that as part of its new ten-year plan for the Code Geass franchise, they’ll be launching an all-new series set in the new continuity set by the events of the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection feature film. Title Code Geass: Z Recapture, this new series has yet to set a window or official release date since its initial announcement. The initial production team of this new project has been confirmed, however, as Yoshimitsu Ohashi (AMNESIA) has been scheduled to lead the series for Sunrise.
Noboru Kimura (Amagami SS +) will write the scripts for the new series, Takahiro Kimura returns from previous entries as a character designer (based on the original character designs from CLAMP), Astrays will design the mecha and the original creative duo behind the series, Ichiro Okouchi and Goro Taniguchi, are credited for the story. There hasn’t been a lot of concrete in this upcoming series yet, but the franchise’s 15th anniversary certainly presents a great opportunity to do so, right? Keep your fingers crossed that we get something soon!
