The slow release for Code Geass: Akito the Exiled continues on as we get closer to the end of the four part OVA, which may just happen this year if all goes to plan. Set for release on May 2nd, 2015 in theaters with a home video release to follow, the first TV spot/theatrical announcement has arrived for the episode. The episode was originally going to get a March 2015 premiere, but was pushed back after the second episode got pushed back significantly previously.
The show has been picked up for release in North America by FUNimation and has been licensed in Australia by Madman. The original series was licensed in North America by Bandai Entertainment but has fallen out of print since the closure of the company. FUNimation picked up the rights to both properties back in the summer of 2013.
Plot concept: The story takes place in Europe in the year a.t.b. 2017. A Knightmare unit made of boys and girls from Area Eleven are thrown into a military operation with a 5% chance of survival. They must rescue an allied unit left behind on the European war front.
