After a few hidden characters and some Japanese word play, the secret message says “Rebirth of the Demon”. Incidentally, the first episode of the 2006 Code Geass anime is titled The Day a New Demon was Born. Likewise, the first episode of the second season is titled The Day a Demon Awakens. Both of which alludes the demon to lead character Lelouch Lamperouge.
The event is titled Anniversary of a Miracle – Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) and will be held at the Maihama Amphitheater in Chiba. The event will begin on November 27th at 2:00pm JST. Only a limited amount of tickets are avaliable with general admissions going for ¥7,800 ($75.10 USD) and special tickets costing ¥8,500 ($81.90 USD).
Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) is an anime series created by animation studio Sunrise (Gundam, Love Live! School Idol Project) and manga creators CLAMP (xxxHolic, Cardcaptor Sakura). The series was directed by Gorou Taniguchi (Planetes, Junketsu no Maria) and began in October, 2006, running for a total of 25 episodes. The anime was followed by a second season in 2008. Both seasons of the anime received critical acclaim and widespread popularity. Following the anime’s broadcast, a series of OVAs, manga and Light novels were produced. In 2012 an anime film movie series titled (Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito) Code Geass: Akito the Exiled was produced, set between the two seasons of the anime. The films were directed by Kazuki Akane (Tetsuwan Birdy Decode: The Cipher, Tenku no Escaflowne).

The band Ali Project, who performed the first Ending theme Yukyo Seishunka, will also be at the event alongside Hitomi Kuroishi (Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun, Shangri-La), who composed the music for both anime seasons. Director Goro Taniguchi (Active Raid, Planetes) and series composer Ichiro Okouchi (Guilty Crown, Kakumeiki Valvrave) will also be attending the event.
The event will also have many merchandise products just for the 10th anniversary, one of which is Kotobukiya’s ARTFX J Lelouch CODE BLACK 1st Live Encore! PVC 1/8 figure.

Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
In the year 2010, the Holy Empire of Britannia is establishing itself as a dominant military nation, starting with the conquest of Japan. Renamed to Area 11 after its swift defeat, Japan has seen significant resistance against these tyrants in an attempt to regain independence.
Lelouch Lamperouge, exiled prince of Britannia, unfortunately finds himself caught in a crossfire between the two nations’ armed forces. He is able to escape, however, thanks to the timely appearance of a mysterious girl named C.C., who bestows upon him Geass, the “Power of Kings.” Realizing the vast potential of his newfound “power of absolute obedience,” Lelouch embarks upon a perilous journey as the masked vigilante known as Zero, leading a merciless onslaught against Britannia in order to get revenge once and for all.
The Code Geass 10th anniversary event will be held on November 27 at the Maihama Amphitheater. Further details about the event will be announced at a later date.
