If they're going to continue the series, I personally would like to see an 'As we intended it' version of R2.

Additional OVA 5 to release this Autumn!

OVA 4 synopsis:

The EU/Euro Britannia war is finally entering its turning point.

Akito who saw through the ruse of Ark Fleet's attack that made the EU fall into anarchy, boards the huge flying ship Galia Grande only to meet his fated rival Ashley starting a fierce battle.

Leila who watched the battle suddenly enters in contact with Akito.

While attempting communication, the W0 castle comes under attack by Euro Britannia while Akito is absent. With no means of defense, Leila watches as the Vercingetorix gallops through the forest with overwhelming power.

While the W0 forces face a desperate situation, back in Paris General Smilas performs a coup d'etat, takes over the EU and announces to the public: Leila is dead!

Shin's despair, Leila's sadness and Akito's fury are swallowed by the gears of fate that begin to turn...

Well, I think that's all very interesting. I envy those who live in Japan and can watch OVA 3 right now.

It's just too bad there's not too many English-speaking viewers in a position to talk about all the details and spoilers involved. But it is always good to know a certain familiar character isn't suddenly taking over the OVA series, like some might have feared after his introduction. I am glad the new developments seem to be heading in another direction.

Hmm...if that claim about an extra OVA 5 this autumn is true, then OVA 4 must be almost done by now and roughly on time for its July 4th schedule. Which means Sunrise is serious about keep their promise of releasing OVA 3 and 4 much closer to each other. That is a very good thing and matches my previously expressed feelings on the subject.

However, I don't want to speculate about OVA 5's existence (or, for that matter, when it will be released) without more confirmed information. If they manage to premiere a full two chapters this year, I will consider it more than satisfactory compensation for the delays.

Chapter 5 is called 愛シキモノタチへ. Director said jokingly that OVA 4 has so much action that they needed another OVA to finish the story.

I'm very happy Sunrise is investing on the Geass franchise

The official website has confirmed Akito OVA 5 is indeed happening. If they really manage to get three chapters out within a single year, that will be an awesome hat trick.

Of course, I'd rather talk about the actual content of those chapters. But you should already know that.

I am glad that Kazuki Akane has been given more time to brings his vision to the screen, despite his evident inability to handle the budget and scheduling. Even though not all Code Geass fans will care about his interests and priorities, I've enjoyed his take on this property (including the mecha combat, of course, but not limited to that).

Incidentally, here's an interview with the man from only a few days ago (in Japanese):

I have a lot of things to say about Akito 3, but I will keep it short unless more folks want to talk about that.

1. The gypsy antics were mildly amusing. It was about time we got a break from the drama. I also enjoyed how they gave us information on the pasts of Leila and, to a lesser extent, Akito himself. C.C. was brought up.

2. If you think about it carefully, Julius Kingsley was used in a way that didn't really break continuity. It does bend things around a little, which might well cause a couple of knee-jerk reactions at a glance, but there are plausible explanations available and he's sort of done now. The Lancelot also looked great in action.

3. It looks like they want to expand and explain parts of the background of Geass by the end of this story. Good news for those who felt the original show kind of dropped the ball there by not telling us enough about it, and presumably bad news for those who think nothing else should be added after the fact.

The latest news:

OVA 4 has just premiered in Japanese theaters, fulfilling the promise of getting two chapters out this year.

But, not too surprisingly at all, the additional OVA 5 will officially premiere on February 6, 2016.
