Code Geass Continues????

CC looks as surprised as I do about this news.

I don't know how I missed this news, but apparently Code Geass is being turned into a bonified franchise with new Manga, some music CDs, and "visual works" and probably a lot more action figures and model kits.

The first really big announced title is Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya. Which features some new kids with throwing stars (*Urgh*) and CC and some guy who looks like Lelouch. It is supposed to take place in the same historical timeline as the TV show, which just raises a whole bunch of questions about the Lelouch guy.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I'm all for more Code Geass, but the show wrapped up pretty nice and tidy, and I'm not big on prequels or alternate universes (or at least not this soon after the original series, maybe in 10 years I'd be up for some alternate universe stuff).

At least they are keeping the franchise alive. I know some people are against this, but as long as it keeps bringing in new people to check out the original series then all is well.
