Bandai Visual’s recent news that the fourth episode of Code Geass: Akito the Exiled wouldn’t be the last was certainly positively received as it means a bit more fun is ahead with a fifth episode. But before that, we’ve got the fourth episode and now a new TV spot has been released to highlight it. The fourth episode currently has a July 4th, 2015 release date in theaters and a home video release to be determined. The new promo shows off a bit of what has come to pass so far before going into the new material across the 90 seconds it runs.
The third episode premiered on May 2nd, 2015 in theaters with a home video release to follow. 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.
