As a follow-up to a previous blog post. The new Code Geass announcement turns out to be a new manga. The story will take place in the same universe as Code Geass, but set in the past during Japan's Edo Period. It's called 'Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya' (Code Geass: Jet-Black Renya or Code Geass: Renya of the Blackness). It stars a new main character named Renya who posesses a mechanical arm and uses shuriken throwing stars for weapons. C.C. will also be featured in the manga continuing to search for a new covenant partner and there is also another character who looks a lot like Lelouch.
The manga debuts in Japan next year. There is no news on English licensing, but if Code Geass continues to be popular and there is demand then you can be sure that we'll look into it!
