Political intrigue and jaw-dropping plot twists. Flamboyant fashion and insane evil laughs. Pretty girls, pretty boys,
jibun wo… and of course, giant rollerskating robots.
Hot off the news from their Anime Expo panel, we had the honor of having our friends at Sunrise (the anime studio behind the Gundam series, Cowboy Bebop, and Tiger & Bunny) announce the release for a very special show that we know many of you have been waiting a long time for:
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Code Geass R2 are returning to home video, with their first release on Blu-ray in North America, on October 4, 2016! Pre-orders will go up on funimation.com in just under 2 weeks on July 15.
Back for the series’ 10th anniversary, both seasons of Code Geass will feature a brand-new Japanese 5.1 surround sound audio mix used on the recent Japanese Blu-ray box sets—an entirely new viewing experience from previous releases. This isn’t just the original stereo audio re-mastered: the music and sound effects have actually been painstakingly re-recorded, all under the quality supervision of director Goro Taniguchi himself, to really immerse you in all the action and drama. We’re ecstatic to bring you this special new version, in addition to the original Japanese stereo audio and the original English dub.
Both seasons will be available in a 10th anniversary Collector’s Edition set that features a handsome chipboard box accentuated with metallic inks. Inside, the set will include 16 gorgeous art cards featuring illustrations from the world-renown manga artists, CLAMP, who created the character designs for the series. These frame-worthy cards include a beautiful pearlescent finish that enhances each unique illustration. This art was previously featured in a Japan-only art book.
The release also comes with hours of extras, including Japanese voice actor commentary and English voice actor interviews, plus picture dramas.
Each season will also be available separately on a standard edition Blu-ray or standard edition DVD.
