Code Geass: Rozé of the Recapture was originally subtitled Z of the Recapture. Comic Natalie reported that the title was changed in light of world affairs (the “Z” symbol was used by Russia during its invasion of Ukraine).

The Code Geass franchise began with 2006’s Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, which ran from 2006 to 2008 for two seasons. After the end of the original series, the franchise inspired several OVAs, a recap film series with continuity differences, a sequel to the recaps titled Code Geass Lelouch of the Re;surrection, and the Code Geass: Akito the Exiled spin-off series. The franchise has also released light novels, manga, and video games.

Code Geass: Rozé of the Recapture is set in the seventh year of the Kouwa era and follows the mercenary brothers Roze and Ash, who join forces with a Japanese resistance force to fight against Neo Britannica and liberate Sakuya Sumeragi, the captive daughter of Hokkaido’s murdered leader. Ash is an excellent Knightmare pilot, while Roze uses his intellect for negotiations, analysis, and strategy on the battlefield.
