We already know that this fall is coming loaded in terms of anime, but it is also that the return of several classic franchises has suddenly joined us between ‘Bleach’, ‘Urusei Yatsura’ and it turns out that also ‘Gundam‘, the queen of mecha anime.
‘Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury’ It officially opens in October, but to introduce us to its complex setting, its creators have released a special chapter that serves as a prologue to the main story.
From Mercury, with love
Seven years have passed since the last ‘Gundam’ anime, and it was time to resume the franchise on television. So to get down to business, from the official Gundam channel on YouTube you can already see this “zero” chapter that serves as a prologue in its entirety, and completely free.
Logically, for now the chapter is only available with a Japanese dubbing, although subtitles have been made in English and other languages to make it a little more accessible.
It’s too early to judge the rest of the series, but this prologue to ‘Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury’ looks spectacular and leaves you wanting more.
The series will premiere on October 2 and it seems that in principle it can be seen in simulcast internationally. It is still not very clear if it will be through Crunchyroll or Netflix, but seeing the premiere of this prologue, it should not be ruled out that the chapters will be uploaded directly to YouTube or the Gundam website.
