Plot[edit | edit source]
The spinoff takes place between the first and second seasons of the TV anime and is told from two perspectives. The photo story in Hobby Japan centers around Orpheus Zevon (Jivon), a young terrorist with the Knightmare Frame (KMF) Byakuen who is in pursuit of his lover's killer. The manga in Newtype Ace revolves around Oldrin Zevon, a girl in the Britannia Empire's anti-terrorist unit Glinda Knights who pilots the KMF Lancelot Grail. (The crest of the Glinda Knights indicates that the name is a reference to Glinda the Good Witch from the Oz novels and each character can be referenced to the same story.)
Oz the Reflection O2 takes place during the R2 arc in the anime. Oldrin, who disappeared a while before, now attends to a school called Pendleton School of Madrid. And Orpheus, now Lyre, is appointed as the Head Knight of the Glinda Knights.
Introductory Overview[edit | edit source]
Code Geass: Oz the Reflection[edit | edit source]
2017 a.t.b. The large-scale revolt against Britannia caused by Zero, known as the "Black Rebellion", ends in failure. However, the influence of the Black Rebellion, as a sign of opposition against the increasingly powerful superpower, was strong. In addition to the major powers opposing Britannia like the Chinese Federation and E.U., acts of anti-Britannia terrorism began to occur with greater frequency in the countries under Britannia’s rule and a new period of resistance arose.
On the one hand, the Britannian homeland begins to nip the buds of resistance with its overwhelming military strength. Within that military strength, there is an anti-terrorist unit formed by Princess Marrybell mel Britannia, the "Glinda Knights". Deploying ace pilots and a great number of experimental Knightmare Frames on the Caerleon-class floating airship "Grandberry", the Glinda Knights are given the search-and-destroy mission of suppressing the terrorism that occurs in all parts of the world.
On the other hand, the terrorist-deployment organization “Peace Mark”, which possesses a worldwide network, is connected to terrorists in every country and terrorist-supporting organizations like Kyoto, inducing them to cause terrorism everywhere.
In the midst of such a chaotic situation, a boy and girl with the same face and the same name "Oz" encounter each other by chance in a small country in the Middle East...
