Code Geass Gaiden: Bokoku no Akito goes direct-to-video

The first animated sequel to Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion has a release date! Sometime in November 2011, we'll be able to see a Lelouch-less story set after the events of the original anime, in which Elevens (a.k.a. Japanese) have to deal with a war in Europe. That probably explains why Sunrise is calling it Code Geass Gaiden: Boukoku no Akito, or Code Geass Side Story: Akito of the Ruined Nation, as Japan went through a lot of crap by the end of the original anime.

Those hoping for a long TV series lasting a full season or two might be disappointed, however. The approximate date came from Amazon Japan, where Code Geass Gaiden is listed as a DVD release. That means the new animation will be a direct-to-video OVA release, not a TV series, which is a little disappointing. Still, with Vision of Escaflowne director Kazuki Akane involved and considering how much much fun the original series was, I'd say it's still worth checking out. At the very least, Akira Yashuda's mecha designs are cool!
