Death of Carlo de Boutiny

Hello everyone.

Those of you who are better connected will already have heard the news, especially those who are following Thomas Romain on Twitter. One of the fathers of Code Lyoko passed away last week. It was Carlo de Boutiny, whose name appears in all the openings of Code Lyoko.
This man was a writer for cinema and although he wasn't very well known to the LyokoSphere in the end, he guided the young Tania and Thomas at the end of their studies and helped them to take the first steps in the Garage Kids/Code Lyoko project.

Here are two links to Tweets by Thomas Romain on the subject: "We developed the CODE LYOKO project together in 2001. With great sadness I've just learned that my friend Carlo de Boutiny has left us. As well as being a formidable person, Carlo was a talented writer. I miss his words."
"The Code Lyoko project was initiated by Tania Palumbo and myself just after we left animation school. Carlo, who had his origins in cinema, brought us his writing experience. He did a lot of work with the director Jan Kounen."

Code Lyoko on YouTube and Dailymotion

Hello everyone!

It's summer, it's school holidays (for the lucky few) and like every other summer, each moment of rest is spent outside or staying at home binge watching TV series, for example. For those who prefer the latter idea and who are fans of Code Lyoko (surprising for someone on Surpris), Dargaud offers you the entire series for free on the official Code Lyoko YouTube channel (in other words, the only channel where Code Lyoko episodes are officially available  Clin d'oeil). This channel, opened two years ago, has published new episodes every week until recently finishing with the release of episode #95 - Echoes. On your phone, tablet or television, you no longer have any excuse not to watch a good little episode. What? You'd rather watch with the original French voices rather than the English? No problem! The episodes are also available in French. No excuse, I tell you!

Huh? You...what? You're...anti-YouTube? It was better before? When the more successful video platform was Dailymotion? NO PROBLEM! The episodes are also available on Dailymotion. When we say that everything has been planned out... summarise, here are the Code Lyoko episodes available:

There, now nobody misses out.
Have a nice evening on co...what was that?
And for those who...don't want to see the English...or in French?
Ok, two things:
1) It's summer, get some sunshine!
2) I see...anyway I present to you the children of the official channels, I call them:

There you have it, for other languages, reread step 1) and if not, you know what you have to do: watch and rewatch the episodes as you please indefinitely! =D

Have a nice holiday on Clin d'oeil (and it's not necessary to click the "Lire la suite" ("Continue reading") link, you'll find the exact same news :p)

A YouTuber offers you a little return to the past

Hello everyone!

Despite the years that have passed since the end of the cartoon, Code Lyoko continues to be appreciated by many as a quality cartoon and a nostalgic childhood memory.
This is why a YouTube channel that creates videos themed on cartoons has leaned towards our baby. The channel is called Channel|Frederator and its thematic videos are based and titled on the theme "107 Facts You Should Know About...".

As the model becomes more and more popular on YouTube, the channel creates videos about cartoons and asks its subscribers to propose the subject of the next video in the comments.
And so, after numerous requests from the English-speaking audience, on the 10th of May, the channel finally released "107 Facts You Should Know About Code Lyoko".

A number of things resonated with us in this video:
- Firstly, this video paints the history of Code Lyoko across the board: its origins, sources of inspiration, Code Lyoko, Code Lyoko Evolution, the actors, goodies, community life, etc... The video leads us in a very nostalgic thematic cruise that will revive a lot of small memories linked to the series.
Evidently, however, if you're a really dedicated fan and have followed and read this entire website, you'll learn next to nothing...

- ...despite our decades of research and writing, the author(s) managed to find facts or supply analyses on certain points that we've never touched on There aren't many of them, but nonetheless: hats off to you!
Still should be noted that there are some errors among the 107 facts (like point 15 for example, showing Evolution concept sketches while discussing the Garage Kids concept art).

- We note the mention, throughout the 107 facts, of projects that our site hosts or is partners with. One good homage is given to Immu's IFSCL, our fantranslation project of the Code Lyoko Chronicles receives a good report (What about Keppsa's one...?) and our cosplayers from old Japan Expos are also given a mention.

- Also, we regrettably see a few redundancies in these facts. Indeed, some of the more repetitive facts could have been combined with others, allowing for funnier ones to take their place (like the parallel between the Subsonics and the trio of éminence grises from the series.)

- Finally, we enormously appreciate seeing the creators of the video have used as a source of information: some facts directly concern the site's projects, and their pages appear in the video. Notably our file on the differences between the scripts and episodes! (And by the way, the season 1 pages have now been translated into English! Go check them out!)
Though we regret the absence of any credit to us in the end, we can clearly see that for some facts, some drawings from our artists (requested to illustrate our files) appear in the video. This is extremely gratifying for all the people who have worked on the site at any level (office and workshop!) to see that years after, our work continues to serve people and the site retains its role of the most complete and rich encyclopaedia on the series, despite being fanmade on a volunteer basis.

Well, I've said enough. Enjoy the video!

Rebirth of the Île Seguin
Posted by Shaka & le Juif on 04/21/2017 at 22:11 (0 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami
Hello everyone.

Tonight, a very short news post to announce the rebith of the Île Seguin.
Those who've been following the site for a while should know it: the Île Seguin (or Seguin Island) where the large Renault factory once stood (which served as the source of inspiration for our heroes' factory) remained abandoned for years, until the factory was demolished and a new project came to light.

This vast project which we've been getting information about for years has finally come to fruition: on the island now stands a building dedicated to music: the "Seine Musicale" and the grand opening is tonight. Rather than say anything more about it, here's a link to the site (in French) where you can find more information on the event, as well as photos!

Code Lyoko Evolution prop sold

Hello everyone!

A very brief bit of news!
The more informed of you would have noticed that, about 2 weeks ago, Norimage put the keyboard they used for the Supercomputer in the series on eBay, with a certificate of authenticity from Norimage. We didn't relay the news in order to avoid any false bidding that would incur. The bids are still coming in with little time to go...

A few seconds ago, the keyboard from Code Lyoko Evolution, on which Marin Lafitte in Jeremie's skin typed, was sold by Norimage to a lucky buyer for the tidy sum of 281.11(excluding shipping)!

Aside from this rather anecdotal happening, the prop being sold confirms what we've already more or less guessed: there certainly won't be a season 2 of Code Lyoko Evolution... As even Norimage is beginning to get rid of its props.

That's all for this evening! Kisses!

A surprise from Norimage...

Hello everyone!

A bit of news from Code Lyoko Evolution (which is pretty rare!!)! Norimage posted a little message on their Facebook, directed at fans of Code Lyoko Evolution. A surprise is announced for Tuesday at 8PM. Here's the post in question!

So, our advice: don't get your hopes up too high! However, it seems very likely to us that this little surprise will be none other than the famous last Finding of Dude Dudu, which we've had available for some time now.

>> Follow this link to see it [in French] <<

How did Dude Dudu release this without Norimage's knowing? He found this video on Norimage's Vimeo account and, surprised at how little it spread, grabbed it. In the end, we noticed that the video was taken down from the Vimeo account in question. So is this what they're referring to? Or does Norimage have some other surprise up their sleeves? Come back Saturday to find out.

Have a nice week.
Thanks to Zaryu for passing on the information.

>> Edit on the 24th of March <<

As we guessed, this surprise was the Jim video.
Norimage has already "revealed" the surprise. The only good point: a subtitled version is available for the international community - click the CC button on the right!

The return of GI-Jim...

Hello everyone.

Two news posts in two days... A nice breath of fresh air for the nostalgic ones. Shut in his secret base, Dude Dudu continues to look for the Ultimate Finding that will plunge the world into chaos. Yesterday, he found a prototype of this finding, hidden in the darkest depths of the net.

And so we reveal to you today, the 101st lost finding...and it's worth your time.

It's a short film. It's created by Norimage and was created while Code Lyoko Evolution was being filmed.
Was it just a joke between the artists that a member of the crew decided to finalise once Moonscoop was dead?
Was it a bonus reel that Norimage kept hidden away for eventual broadcasting...or to be a DVD bonus feature?
Was it something else?
It's hard to say...

This short film is centred on the largest mystery within the Lyokosphere. No, not "Where is Anthea Hopper", not "Why did XANA go to the dark side". Not even "Why did nobody in the world ever die before a return to the past?"

The real question is what all Lyokofans have asked one time or another: 

"What is underneath Jim's band-aid?"

Before leaving you to watch, I can already hear the purists thinking: "Bah! Norimage is CLE... And CLE is crap... So this teaser isn't canon!"!
Don't worry about that! This short film is truly excellent: on one hand, thanks to the excellent Bastien Thelliez, unanimously known as CLE's biggest success... But also and especially thanks to the few winks to the Code Lyoko cartoon that we find in this bonus clip... References that we would loved to have seen in CLE.

Well, enough talking, here's the video and thanks Dudu!

The Fandom Strategy Playable (0.1.0)

Not long after its first announcement, the first prototype of the Fandom Strategy is now available!

The game contains Original & Lyoko Fandoms, and all local features, with 2 players, up to 8 players. Reverse Screen Mode and so on.

It works on windows and mac users, while android version might come a bit later. The android version (.apk file) will be slower as being a prototype. And it's mainly aimed at tablets rather than phones (screens would be too small).

You can also check the other compositions of the music artist for the game, Kfe.

A new Code Lyoko video game!
Posted by Immu on 11/08/2014 at 12:27 (1 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami

Hi, It's Immu! The next version of the IFSCL will still need time before showing up again, certainly months, for technical reasons (mostly about external plugin that needs to be updated by an external company).

Nevertheless, here and now, theres’s a whole new game that I tease you about today
, very different from the IFSCL, but with one common factor: Code Lyoko! A game that I've been wishing to do for a long time.

The first prototypes are functional and the game will be a multiplayer game, made for the Code Lyoko community…and even more.
A release of an early playable version might be available in the upcoming months, not online, only local, which might also help pass the time in the wait for the next version of the IFSCL.

So here’s a few teaser pictures:
new game code lyokonew game code lyokonew game code lyoko
new game code lyokonew game code lyokonew game code lyoko

A bigger news will come, as well as a complete set of galleries, social network pages and so on. In the meantime, you can still grab the last news on IFSCL facebook page.

Two 'new' musics and an actor
Posted by Shaka on 02/05/2014 at 13:35 (7 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami
Hello everyone!

A small news post today to tell you two things. Let's start with the music. The anglophone member of our forum ProjectCarthageCLFR has discovered two pieces of music from the series. One of them is the Tower background music. We already have a version available in our Media section but the version found by our member has an unheard part in it. The second piece is a remixed version of "A World Without Danger" that we only heard in season 1, when our heroes went to the factory.

After some verification on the staff's part, we've realised that these pieces weren't entirely unheard: Kikou used them in his Code Lyoko PC game! However, they were never put up for download, not even on his site. So here they are:

Finally, some last information, something lighter. is the only fansite that keeps you up-to-date on your actors' work, and so here is a short addition on the topic of Bastien Thelliez, the unmissable Jim from Code Lyoko Evolution. He played a small role in "Mère et Fille" (Mother and Daughter). You can find it in the video below, from around 3:47. Discover Jim as a DJ for parties...but be careful! He'd rather not talk about it!

Thanks to Vivi and Toad9!

Have a nice weekend! Don't forget to read the previous news from this week.
