Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito promotional video released, Japanese screening set for this summer

Three and a half years ago I watched the conclusion to the second season of Code Geass. I lamented over the fact that it had ended, but enjoyed my time with the series and still hold it in high regard. Luckily, for fans such as myself, it seems like we have some more Code Geass to look forward to. A promotional video for the long since rumored spin-off has finally been released and can be seen below.


Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito, roughly translated to “Akito the Exiled”, is a side story taking place around the same time as season one of the original. This time the setting is in Europe, but Britannia’s steel grip over power is still being felt. Europe and it’s allied nations are in the midst of defending themselves from Britannia’s invasion and the story’s focus will be on a special division of the army, consisting of young soldiers and their Knightmare Frames, as they fight to keep their country’s freedom.

There’s no confirmation yet as to whether the animation will be a full TV series or an OVA. Either way, I’m all for revisiting the world of Code Geass, especially if it can keep me as enthralled as I was in the original. Though I have to admit, I was a bit taken aback by the sudden saxophone when the video started. Judging from the video alone it seems like it may be trying to distinguish itself from its predecessor. Regardless, we’ll have to wait a few more months to find out more. Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito will be screened in theaters this summer in Japan.

Catherine Deluxe Edition Announced, Don’t Mistake It For Pizza

Atlus has come up with a special edition for Catherine and, if you order this “Love is Over Deluxe Edition”, it will be delivered to you in a pizza box. Yes, you heard right, a freaking pizza box!

In addition to the pizza box, it will also come with a Catherine pillow case, Vincent’s boxers, and a shirt with a health meter running on empty. The deluxe edition will be priced at $79.99, $20 more than the regular version. Regardless of which you choose, just pre-ordering the title will net you a 36-page artbook and a CD with remixed songs from the game.

All that extra stuff is nice, but all I can think about is how cool it would be to have a game delievered to me in a pizza box. Hmm…I wonder if I have any leftover pizza boxes lying around.
