Someone posted these in AnimeOnDVD forums:
It's a Sunrise mecha series called Code Geass. CLAMP will be involved with the original character designs. The user also posted the staff info:
Director: Goro Taniguchi (Scryed, PlanetES)
Series Editor: Ichiro Okouchi
Original Character Design: CLAMP
Character Design: Takahiro Kimura
Original Mecha Design: Akiman (Overman King Gainer, Turn A Gundam)
Here's the basic synopsis:
duckroll from AnimeOnDVD wrote:The setting of the show is a mix of campus anime and robot anime.
In the setting of the show, Japan has been invaded and is under the control of a major superpower. It is now a colony known as "Area 11". The emperor of the superpower sends his bloodline as proxy rulers of each "area" but the battle over this lineage will determine the fate of "Area 11".
The main characters are the "Black Prince", Lelouch Vi Britannia, who has rejected his given path and the "White Knight", Kururugi Suzaku, who values justice. Both are fighting to win the battle to free Japan, but they're also opposed in ideologies. Both guys are said to be typical CLAMP characters, closer to their Tsubasa designs. There is also a mysterious girl known as the Withc of Destiny shown who is more of the typical Kimura female design. There is also an illustration the main mech.
The synopsis just screams X with mechs.
