Bandai’s chibi-arts C.C. Revives The Geass Fever

It’s been a long time since the last episode of Code Geass aired on screen, but that hasn’t stopped Bandai from cashing in on the iconic franchise. With Geass fever bound to hit Japan all over again because of the new Akito of the Exiled movie, it was a good time for the popular toy manufacturer to announce a new figure of the popular and mysterious C.C.. This C.C. is part of Bandai’s chibi-arts toy line which is similar to Good Smile Company’s more lauded Nendoroid figures. As seen in the image above, C.C. comes with a lot of accessories, including the cat, Arthur. She also comes with different face plates so you can play around with her in different scenarios.

Bandai’s chibi-arts C.C. will retail for 3000 yen and is bound for a September 2012 release. Since this is Bandai, expect a timely release for this one. Grab one now!

New “Code Geass: Akito The Exiled” Anime Promotional Video Leaked

It has been a while since we’ve heard anything about the new “Code Geass” anime. I actually thought that it might be one of those projects that were only referred to in passing and destined to be forgotten by the producers, but thankfully, we finally have concrete evidence that is is coming soon. A random search on Youtube yielded this video preview, showing a lot of new faces and a lack of old ones but retaining the signature CLAMP art style and the roller-blading high speed Knightmare Frame battles we’ve come to know of. Yup, this is indeed the new “Geass” anime and it will be entitled “Code Geass: Akito the Exiled.” It’s bound to be released this 2012. An exact date hasn’t been given yet but considering that a promotional video has already leaked, it’s airing might be sooner than we expect. Can’t wait for this one.
