It's been a while since we last heard news on Code Geass Gaiden: Boukoku no Akito, but we've finally got a little more information, and interesting information at that. According to Ichiko Hashimoto, the lady behind the music in the Code Geass spin-off, the show will be a four-episode OVA that will premier in cinemas before seeing a DVD/Blu-ray release around three months afterwards. The episodes will also be around 50 minutes long.
This is a very similar model that is currently being used for Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, so perhaps we are starting to see a new standard for big-name OVA series? The first of these is set for release this summer, so keep your eyes peeled!
