It may be a full decade since Lelouch first got his geass, donned his helmet and became the leader of a revolution, but if you’re a fan of the series, you’re still mourning the great Lelouch of the Revolution like his great sacrifice, aka Zero Requiem, happened yesterday. I know, I know—it’s still a raw spot, and not to mention all the feelings you must still have about the laundry list of other tragic deaths in the series. I’ve got feelings, people. Lots and lots of feelings.
For those of you like me, know that there’s now a substantial silver lining to the dark cloud of death and despair that is Code Geass: Sunrise, the studio behind the series, recently announced that they will be celebrating the franchise’s ten-year anniversary by bringing Lelouch back in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection, which will take place a few years after Code Geass: Lelouch of the Revolution R2. And no, this is no trick; Sunrise has confirmed that Lelouch himself will be the hero of the third season, meaning that Lelouch must either be Jesus or a Time Lord, because we all saw that dude die in his sister’s arms. But Lelouch is looking very much alive in his newly ornamented Zero helmet in the new image Sunrise released from the sequel, the format of which hasn’t yet been confirmed.
In case that’s not enough good news for you Geass fans, January 2017 will see the release of a series of three films summarizing the series. Merry Christmas to me.
