Code Geass: Z of the Recapture – Key Visual

Although part of the Code Geass franchise, the Z of the Recapture will feature a new story with new characters. The plot focuses on two brothers, Rose and Ash, mercenaries who get involved in a battle with the 100th Emperor of Britannia. Sakuya Sumeragi (voiced by Reina Ueda), who resembles Kaguya Sumeragi from the original series, will play an important part in the story. Kohei Amasaki voices Rose, while Makoto Furukawa voices Ash.

Ichiro Okouchi and Goro Taniguchi are credited for the story of Code Geass: Z of the Recapture. Yoshimitsu Ohashi is directing, with Noboru Kimura on the series composition. CLAMP is once again credited with the original character designs with Takahiro Kimura and Hidekazu Shimamura as the character designers for the movie. MIYAVI will be in charge of the theme song “Running in My Head.”

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion is an original anime series by studio Sunrise. Goro Taniguchi directed it, while Ichiro Okouchi wrote the script. The CLAMP group did the original character designs. The first season aired from October 2006 to July 2007 and had 25 episodes. The sequel, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2, aired from April 2008 to September 2008, and also had 25 episodes. The franchise is home to many OVA side stories; the five-episode Code Geass: Akito the Exiled stands out as well-received.

A movie trilogy that recapped the events from both seasons was released between 2017 and 2018. The story adapted the two seasons but was also set in an alternate universe, where the events unfold differently. The trilogy movies are titled InitiationTransgression, and Glorification. They were followed by an original sequel movie, titled Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection in 2019. Multiple manga and light novel adaptations of the series also exist.

Z of the Recapture was announced alongside the Code Geass: Genesic Re;CODE gacha mobile game, which was launched in 2021.
