The Akizuki (Japanese for "Autumn Moon") is a knightmare frame utilized by the Order of the Black Knights in Code Geass Megiddo. It is noteworthy as the chosen unit of Jeremiah Gottwald upon his defection.

Appearance[]

The Megiddo rendition of the Gekka Alonso from Oz the Reflection. No major difference in the overall design, aside from Blaze Luminous projectors being fitted over the forearms, and the original red color scheme being swapped for burnt orange. Likewise, the golden highlights are removed from all except the head module.

Design[]

A highly odd design even for one of Rakshata Chawla's lineup, the Akizuki is widely considered an ugly duckling among the Order of the Black Knights. As it was meant to merge Britannian technology onto a Japanese frame, the Akizuki's main body is that of a Gekka, but with its original arms replaced with those of a Gloucester, and the original head mounted mono-eye sensor camera swapped for a Britannian factsphere and quad-eye camera type. This outward appearance only belies how much of the Akizuki has been integrated with salvaged Sutherland and Gloucester parts as well as reverse engineered tech from the Mordred.

As one can expect from its forwardly ungainly, yet strangely elegant form, the Akizuki is a highly unbalanced machine. Though the integration of Britannian technology (especially those taken from Camelot) has allowed the Akizuki to achieve a perfomrance level that even Rakshata admits is on par with the Guren series, that same integration also makes the Akizuki very unstable and difficult to control. Even the top devicers of the Black Knights, Major Kallen Kouzuki and General Kyoshiro Tohdoh among them, found the Akizuki a very troublesome unit to pilot, with some suffering physical injury during their respective runs. Fortunately Rakshata is able to mitigate this with acquired Eildon technology, which allows the Akizuki's eventual devicer to better interface with the unit.

For armaments, the Akizuki retains the tried-and-true "Hien Souga" slash harken in its chest, but otherwise does away with standard Black Knight weapons for Britannian arms, specifically forearm mounted Blaze Luminous projectors that contain concealed/extendable maser vibration blades. Once the frame is acquired by Jeremiah Gottwald, it is also supplemented with a Sutherland's assault rifle.

Overall the Akizuki is a flawed, yet highly ambitious and ironically highly effective design, its conjoined internals making it one of the best performing knightmares in the Black Knights' muster. Made even more so in Colonel Gottwald's skilled (cybernetic) hands, such that the Akizuki is capable of going against the Guren Nishiki and the (in)famous Red Dragoness herself head on.

History[]

Meant strictly as an experimental unit to test the viability of the application of Britannian technology with Japanese, the Akizuki was tested and evaluated off and on following the Battle of Pearl Harbor, with several of the who's who among the Black Knights' ace corps taking it through the test runs. Though successful in its intended purpose, the Akizuki proved far too difficult to be fielded outside of Kunigami, and so was disengaged and placed in storage upon the tests' conclusion. Colonel Chawla and the Science Division, as well as the Chawla Design Bureau back in India, would go onto concentrate on more conventional designs.

Following the Battle of Alexandra Land and Jeremiah Gottwald's unexpected defection, Zero would request the Science Division to procure a knightmare for his newest follower, one preferably of Britannian origin. Though Jeremiah originally intended to pilot a basic Sutherland until a more advanced unit became available, the former Eildon would inadvertently come across the inactive Akizuki through his tour of Kunigami and, upon recognizing the purpose and corresponding effectiveness of its design, would take it as his own. From then on, the man behind the Orange Incident eight years prior would take an eager role in the Great World War, beginning with Operation Akikaze, the Black Knight incursion into Far Eastern Eurasia.
