Dubbed Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection, this marks the third entry in the Code Geass franchise.

If you were watching anime in 2006, you would have at the very least heard of Code Geass. Lelouch of the Rebellion. The mech/school/magic/political anime was a phenomenon that engulfed us all. Memes were created and conspiracy theories ran rampant. It ended its two seasons on a fairly conclusive note and, sadly, most additional material since released dealt with alternate universes and characters. Now, 10 years on, it's finally getting a direct sequel.
Last spring, it was announced that the Code Geass series was getting a new instalment. Details are scant, but it's apparently set after several years after the second season, namely in the wake of Lelouch vi Britannia's "Zero Requiem" plan.
Looks nice, no?
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection is being directed by Goro Taniguchi, who previously helmed Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2.
