Sunrise has announced that the Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito project will be screened in 10 Japanese theaters this summer. Miyu Irino will play Akito, while Maaya Sakamoto will play Reira Marukaru.
Sunrise also announced a stage musical inspired by the original anime, in addition to the previously announced non-musical stage play (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion: Souran Eve). A social game is launching on Japan’s mobile game platform Mobage.
I’m not sure if this means that Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito is actually a movie, I don’t think so. I think it’s a first-look of what the project is going to be like.
But hey, it’s Tsubasa’s Syaoran, Miyu Irino, and Maaya Sakamoto! =)
More info as they come!
Update: ANN has the word that Maaya Sakamoto will also provide the theme song for Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito.
A 90-second promotional video for the Code Geass: Akito the Exiled anime project was presented at Thursday’s Code Geass New Project Announcement event and later streamed by Bandai Namco Live TV online.
Finally, we have Maaya in Geass World! XD
Oh, and also Irino Miyu! Yay!
Thanks for the info, chibi Yuuto-san. 😀
I see they are trying to make the cast CLAMP-friendly =)
Thanks for the info! I’d be pretty disappointed if it was a movie actually, haha.
Yay for Miyu Irino!
A movie wouldn’t screen in only 10 theaters…. I guess… right? xD
I was happy to read that Maaya and Miyu Irino would be the leads. I hope the rest of the cast are CLAMP-ish too. And I also hope we get more details too, the news is too short and confusing, I just wish it’s not a movie, because it’d mean we’d have to wait even longer to watch it, and we’ve been waiting for ages already
I hope it’s just a prequel of some sorts and that there will be a full series starting autumn 2012.
Also, please stay at least one month in theaters, I will only be in Japan from September on and I want to catch this movie!!
Syaoran and Tomoyo~! Yay~!
