Code Geass: Akito the Exiled is a spinoff from Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. The five-episode OVA, which first hit Japanese retailers in 2012, was directed by Kazuki Akane (Birdy the Mighty Decode, The Vision of Escaflowne) at Sunrise. Takahiro Kimura (Dirty Pair Flash, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) provided character designs for the project, while the team of Hiroshi Ohnogi (RahXephon, Aquarion), Kazuki Akane, and Miya Asakawa (Turn A Gundam: Earth Light) wrote the screenplay.
Bandai Entertainment originally released Code Geass: Akito the Exiled in North America. Funimation describes the show as:
Leila Malcal, commander of her very own W-0 unit for the European army, takes on dangerous missions with her powerful and mysterious lieutenant, Akito Hyuga. With a group of rebels on their side, they fight the Britannian army but face more than the typical perils of war. A foe from Akito’s past seeks his life and a dark power threatens all that Leila has worked for.
