Code Geass turns 10 years old this October, with the first series, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, premiering in 2006. The series has launched a 10th anniversary website and has planned events throughout the year, with the first being “Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion: Anniversary of a Miracle” in Chiba.
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion was followed up by Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2, which put a curtain on the story of Lelouch Vi Britannia and his quest to avenge his mother’s apparent death. It has spanned numerous spinoffs, both manga and anime, including Akito the Exiled, which is an OVA (original video animation). Director Kazuki Akane and producer Yoshitaka Kawaguchi will be on-hand for a U.S. premiere screening of the title on August 14 at the Otakon convention in Maryland and will not only attend the screening but hold a question and answer session. It’s a great way to celebrate the fact that Code Geass turns 10 years old this year.
Code Geass is one of the most beloved anime series’ in recent memory, but still doesn’t have a Blu-Ray release in the west. The 10th anniversary of the series would be the perfect time to announce an impending box set. Otakon would be the perfect venue to announce this.
