Code Geass hitting the stage in 2012


Ignoring the fact that the original story featured tons of fancy, smoothly-animated mech battles, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion is getting adapted into a theatrical play that you can see as soon as April 2012. Butaiban Code Geass Hangyaku no Lelouch: Souran no Eve (Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion on Stage: Eve of the Disturbance) will run for 13 shows from April 7-16 at Japan's Katsushika Symphony Hills Mozart Hall. Early tickets go on sale December 25, making them the perfect last-minute Christmas gift for that special fan.

There are no details yet on what the adaptation will entail, considering that the original anime ran for 50 episodes of twisty-turvy plot, but more information on the play will be revealed on January 12, alongside new details on Code Geass Gaiden: Boukoku no Akito.

The mech battles are surely going to be compromised, which may give doubt to some fans, but I'm not that worried for one reason: Code Geass was already theatrical as hell to begin with. As far as I'm concerned, Lelouch's flamboyant speeches and Suzaku's whiney angst will easily make the transition to the stage.
