The official website for the Code Geass franchise revealed on Thursday that a Nunnally in Wonderland Original Video Animation (OVA) will be released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD this year. Each edition will include a 40-page picture book that recounts the same story as the anime.
Takahiro Kimura, the character designer for the first Code Geass anime, will be the animation director and contribute new designs for this project. In the all-new story, Lelouch makes the ultimate use of his Geass power for his little sister Nunnally, who loves Alice in Wonderland.
Makoto Baba, an episode director on the two television anime series, is directing this new project. Episode scriptwriter Yuuichi Nomura, character designer/animation director Takahiro Kimura, and musical composer Kotaro Nakagawa are also returning from the television series. Bandai Namco Live TV streamed a promotional video.
The mastermind Lelouch and his sister Nunnally will retain their personas from the television anime while appearing as the Mad Hatter and Alice respectively. The mysterious C.C. will have a fitting, enigmatic role as the Cheshire Cat. Suzaku will continue his royal duties as the White Knight, while Kallen will play the March Hare. Shirley retains her thoughtful expressions and takes up the identity of a Fawn. Milly is also featured as the Dutchess. Anya plays the role of the timid White Rabbit. Although keeping regal titles, Charles will take on the ironic role of the rather timid King of Hearts next to Marianne, who will get to showcase her power as the Queen of Hearts. it's a parody of Alice in Wonderland and Lelouch uses his Geass wastefully to entertain his sister Nunnally.
