Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (Japanese: Kdo Giasu: Hangyaku no Rurshu) is a Japanese adventure anime series based on the same-named manga series.
The manga series, written by Gorou Taniguchi and Ichiro Okouchi and drawn by Majiko!, began publication on August 24, 2006, and concluded on February 24, 2010.
The manga story was adapted into an anime series in 2006, and Season 1 of Code Geass began on October 6, 2006. It was a smashing success with both manga fans and newcomers and was promptly revived for a second season.
Season 2 began on April 6, 2008, and fans have been waiting for word of a third season ever since. Here is what we currently know about Season 3’s chances.
Code Geass Season 3 Release Date
Season 2 of Code Geass debuted on April 6, 2008, and concluded on September 28, 2008. Due to the show’s success, fans had long wished for a third season, which was partially granted when the anime film Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection was released on February 9, 2019.
However, when it comes to the prospect of a new season of Code Geass, the odds are stacked against the program. Anime series are frequently revived after a five-year hiatus.
Given that it has been more than a decade after the program’s Season 2 debut and there has been no word on a Season 3 show, it does not seem probable that a third season will be created.
The program has not been formally canceled, so there is a very tiny possibility that someone will take on the job of creating a new season.
Our best estimation is that, in the improbable event that the anime is revived, Code Geass season 3 will premiere in 2022 or 2023. This section will be updated when further information becomes available.
Code Geass Season 3 Plot
The world of Code Geass is split among three superpowers: the Holy Britannian Empire (the Americas; commonly referred to as Britannia), the Chinese Federation (Asia), and the European Union (Europe and Africa).
The anime begins in 2010 with the invasion of Japan by the Holy Britannian Empire in the Chinese Federation, using massive robotic weaponry known as Knightmare Frames.
Captured off guard, the defenders are unable to resist the attack, and Japan succumbs quickly to the armies of the Holy Britannian Empire. Following Japan’s invasion, the Holy Britannian Empire renames the area Area 11, and its inhabitants are referred to as elevens.
The story is set against this background and follows a young man named Lelouch vi Britannia, the exiled son of Britannian Emperor Charles Zi Britannia and his royal bride Marianne vi Britannia.
Marianne was brutally killed while Lelouch was a kid, and the stress caused by the crime caused Lelouch’s sister, Nunnally vi Britannia, to lose her sight and ability to walk.
Despite this tragedy, the Britannian monarch dispatched Lelouch and his sister to Japan as diplomatic envoys to provide a false feeling of security as the Holy Britannian Empire prepared for the invasion.
Of course, neither Lelouch nor his sister knew their father’s intentions, and when the Holy Britannian Empire assaults and conquers Japan, Lelouch, who was already incensed with his father for failing to pursue Marianne’s murderer, is enraged beyond belief.
With Japan in flames, Lelouch makes a vow to his Japanese buddy Suzaku Kururugi that he would one day destroy the Holy Britannian Empire and liberate Japan and the rest of the globe from its despotic grasp.
Seven years pass after Lelouch makes his pledge, and he matures into a young man known as Lelouch Lamperouge. Despite his brilliance and popularity as an Ashford Academy student, Lelouch is mostly reclusive and seems focused on opposing Britannian power.
He eventually takes a leap of faith and joins a terrorist strike against the British government in Japan. He meets a strange girl named C.C. or C2, who saves his life from the Royal Britannian Guard and bestows an immensely strong skill called Geass.
Geass, sometimes known as the “Power of Kings,” allows Lelouch to compel anybody to do anything he wishes — he can even alter people’s desire to live, fight, or die with the power.
With this immense power, Lelouch vows to fulfill his pledge to Suzaku and becomes determined to track down the assassins of his mother and bring the Holy Britannian Empire to its knees.
As a result, he adopts the persona of Zero and becomes a masked vigilante and commander of The Black Knights resistance organization. Soon after, the resistance movement gains momentum, and Lelouch earns the support and trust of the Japanese people, who have suffered under British tyranny for centuries.
Lelouch, therefore, initiates a revolt against the Holy Britannian Empire with the help of the Japanese people. Of course, rebellion is not simple, and Lelouch is forced to make some difficult decisions, including confronting his buddy Suzaku, his half-siblings, and the world’s largest army.
