Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion is currently in the midst of its huge 10th Anniversary celebration as its sequel film Lelouch of the Resurrection, is currently making its way through Japanese Theaters right now before it makes its way to North American later this Spring. Now would be a good time to catch up on the series, whether you’re a fan or you’re new to the Series; even though it’s available on most streaming services already, it will be coming to Netflix soon.

It was spotted on Twitter, by user WTK who posted this on its social media page; it is slated to join with Netflix’s lineup on May 1st but it only has a ‘Season 1’ listing.

It seems that rather than share the full series when it hits Netflix’s streaming service, only the first 25 episodes will be available in May. For those unaware, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellionis officially broken up into two seasons. The second season, Lelouch of the Rebellion R2, aired a year after the original season of the series in Japan and packs in much of the action fans remember the series for.

So while watching the series on Netflix will be a great way to experience the series for those who have never seen it before, watching its offerings may not bring you up to date in time for the series’ new sequel film hitting theaters in¬†the United States on May 5 and May 7.¬†Though it’s still the first season of one of the most well-received anime releases of all time.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion was first created by Sunrise, with character designs provided by manga collective CLAMP. Set in an alternate world, the series follows Lelouch vi Britannia who decides to bring the Britannia Empire down when he receives the power of the Geass, which allows him to exert his will over others. The anime series ran for 50 episodes from 2006 to 2008. The series was licensed for an English language broadcast by Bandai, and was aired on Adult Swim in 2007.
