Whereas Johnny Yong Bosch and Michelle Ruff provide the English voices for Lelouch, Kate Higgins voices CC, Yuri Lowenthal, and Laura Bailey portray Suzaku Kururugi. Karen Strassman plays Kallen Stadtfeld in English Version.
What is the Series About? And Every Character?
Code Geass, a Sunrise studio production, is set in an imaginary Orwellian world where the Holy Britannian Empire, the Chinese Federation, and the European Union are the three superpowers (Europa United).
The plot centers on Lelouch vi Britannia, the outcast Eleventh Prince of the Britannian Empire (also known as Lelouch Lamperouge). Lelouch is the brother of Nunnally vi Britannia and the son of Britannian Emperor Charles zi Britannia and Marianne vi Britannia.
Lelouch becomes enraged with his father when he fails to intervene following the murder of his mother, which is so tragic that his sister loses her sight and mobility. The story begins in 2010 when Lelouch and Nunnally are dispatched to Japan on a diplomatic mission as political pawns.
The Storyline of the Anime
Japan is attacked by robots known as “Nightmare Frames,” initiating an unwarranted invasion. These robots annihilate the region, annexing it by force and naming it “Area 11.” Lelouch intends to engage in combat to exact retribution for a wrong.
Moreover, he promises his friend Suzaku Kururugi that he will liberate Japan from tyrannical plots. Lelouch, also known as Lelouch Lamperouge, is enrolled at Ashford Academy, where he plots his overthrow of the dictatorship.
When a Royal Britannian Guard threatens him, a mysterious girl named C.C. comes to his rescue. She also grants him Geass, also known as the “Power of Kings,” which enables him to command anyone he desires. After realizing the power bestowed upon him, Lelouch disguises himself as Zero and embarks on a perilous journey to exact revenge on the Holy Britannian Empire.
Throughout the seasons, he fights specific personal battles or mecha battles to save himself from the corrupting element of his newly acquired power. He formed the radical ‘Black Knights’ group to liberate his empire finally.
As Lelouch progresses along his journey, he encounters several obstacles that prevent him from achieving his objective. Along the way, he encounters Suzaku Kururugi and his half-sibling while fighting against the empire.
What to Expect from Season 3 of Code Geass?
The third season could feature new obstacles for Nunnally and Suzaku to maintain peace in the Britannian Empire. With CC’s assistance, the creators can also bring Lelouch back or resurrect him in some form. He would make a formidable adversary for the current empress and her guard. All of this is conjecture, and the creators may surprise anime fans.
Code Geass season 3 is a highly anticipated anime series. Fans have eagerly awaited news of the show’s return since the finale of ‘Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion in 2008. Unfortunately, no official release date has been announced yet. Nonetheless, fans remain hopeful that season 3 will be released soon. We expect to see ‘Code Geass’ season 3 air sometime in 2023.
