[News] Round-up - Code Geass & xxxHolic

Just some catching up,
I posted this over at earlier this week, and several other members have added more detail.
The Code Geass Tanjoubi no Kiseki DVD had a short PV about the new anime project (2ch rumors are that it is a 6-part OVA):

Code Geass GAIDEN: Boukoku no Akito (Akito of the Fallen Country)
In this broken world, we still dream
a.t.b.2017 (same time period as the first season)
The hellish European front,
A small squad infiltrates enemy territory to save their allies,
That squadron’s Nightmare Devicers are boys and girls from Zone 11.
The mission’s chance of success is only 5%.
Why do they fight?

Director: Kazuki Akane (Escaflowne, Birdy the Might Decode)
Script: Shigeru Morita (Gundam Seed, Blood+)
Original character design: CLAMP

There will be a mail-in new short OAD for those who buy the 3 upcoming magazines with the new xxxHolic-related content: Shonen Magazine, Zoukan Magazine SP and Bessatsu Shonen Magazine.

The xxxHolic anime will also be re-release in a box set. The 1st part will be out in July with 12 episodes. CLAMP will illustrate the box, and there will also be a deluxe booklet with anime illustrations included. The 2nd part will be out in the summer, too, while a xxxHolic Kei box set is also planned.

FUNimation is also re-releasing the first season as a part of their Viridian Collection (meaning~ less expensive than their previous box set). It will be out in May.
