Code Geass Akito is an upcoming film packed with characters, and flooded with action – and this latest PV provides only a slight overview of the high intensity mecha combat, amongst the child driven politics.
Even if one isn’t too fascinated with highschoolers battling to save the universe and etc., at the very least, the visuals certainly look rather flashy for the better – boasting a variety of effects in a manner both engaging and appropriate as the situation calls. Not to mention, the events themselves are notably quite heavy in mood – life or death battling of colossal mechanical creatures within a city only somewhat holding together.
Worthy of specific note is the scene taking place shrouded in darkness – the fight of mecha versus mecha in a burning forest is the main highlight of the PV. Yet in particular, the point seen at 54 seconds within is perhaps the epitome as it seemingly exhibits the greatest quality of animation to be found – a fluid reaction on part of a mech robot as it’s assaulted with fairly potent projectiles.
As for the remainder of the PV, the predominance of it in general is merely a mixture of the child politics which fail to prove too interesting for most aside from the shounen crowd – though in either case, the action is certainly looking impressive, perhaps enough to justify spending the time on the film.
The movie debuts August 4th – although for the world beyond Japan, it may be a while longer till their chance comes.
