Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block will run the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 sequel series in the United States. The late-night block has been running Bandai Entertainment's English-dubbed version of the first Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion robot anime series since April 26.

The 18th episode of Code Geass R2 just aired in Japan on Sunday, and the series is expected to end after 25 episodes in October when the second season of Gundam 00 will take over its timeslot.

Code Geass R2 continues the alternate-history struggle between the Britannia Empire and the oppressed "Elevens" of former Japan, after the cliffhanger ending of the first series. Goro Taniguchi is directing the animators at Sunrise on this project with character designs by the popular manga artist quartet CLAMP.

Bandai Entertainment just shipped its first Code Geass DVDs as individually packaged discs, a two-disc set, and a limited-edition set.

Update: Bandai Entertainment noted at Maryland's Otakon event last Saturday that the Code Geass R2 sequel will run on Adult Swim immediately after the first series ends. Thanks, Tenkaido.

I guess if you aren't part of 90% of anime fans dling this series right now you'll be watching it on AS.

I'm surprised that they'll be running it immediately after the first series. Usually AS takes a few months.

Yeah I am surprised how speedily they are running the show. But then again think of the ending to season 1. A lot of people would be pissed about that ending.

Yeah but season 2 sure is something. Episode 20 is coming out in Japan Sunday so they've got a good lead on it... Excellent series, as always.
