Anime News: Code Geass Season 2 confirmed for Spring ’08

Via Moon Phase Diary: This month’s edition of Newtype, due out on December 10th, will confirm the speculated airing of the second season of Code Geass TV anime starting in the spring (April) of 2008, according to advance notice obtained by Moon Phase. Recent speculation had it that Geass would be inserted in the break between two half-year seasons of Gundam 00 in the Saturday evening prime time slot on the TBS network, and while we don’t have confirmation of this detail it seems likely to be the case; we’ll bring further information on this development as we obtain it. In other news, the same Moon Phase post reports that Macross F will air next spring as well; seems like an epic science fiction season in the making! Thanks to Rawshark for the tipoff on this.
