[News] from Otakon 2011

During the Sunrise panel at Otakon this weekend, there was an open Q&A with Sunrise's anime producer/General Manager of Overseas Development, Masayuki Ozaki.

Q: Can you tell us anything about the new Code Geass spin-off series?

Ozaki: I knew that question was coming. The uh, next season of Code Geass is behind schedule. They're working hard. We're looking forward to releasing it next year. And it will take place in the same world as Lelouch except with different characters. And, the stage is set in Europe, so we'll see a lot of European countries. The new directer is Kazuki Akane, the director of Escaflowne.

Code Geass: Suzaku Bzuh?

Despite being May, I had to check this wasn't actually an April Fool's joke

The Code Geass spinoff I don't think anyone saw coming!

Barcode Geass: Lelouch of the Sale.

It's a new 4-koma manga in the 4-Koma Nano Ace magazine (which apparently only started recently - it's on its second edition, the first having come out two months ago) in which to quote ANN, "the manga re-imagines the anime's title character Lelouch Lamperouge as a part-time convenience store worker." The original story is credited to Okouchi and Taniguchi.

The only question I ask now is: Where are the scans?

ETA: Well, I've found a scan of the first page. Hopefully the rest turns up too, eventually.

Thanks to someone in the ANN comments, I am now imagining this as Code Geass meets Clerks, which is an odd visual.
