Gundam: Witch From Mercury Releases New Image For Anime Series –

By Evan Valentine
The world of Gundam has perhaps presented fans with more alternate realities and stories of war than any other anime franchise around, with 2022 presenting a new movie that will revisit the lost episode of the original series that started it all. This fall however will create a new chapter in the franchise via Gundam: Witch From Mercury, and a new key visual has arrived giving us a better look at the first female protagonist of the series and her Gundam that she’ll be piloting into battle.      
Twitter Outlet Anime TV Japan shared the new look at the key visual for Gundam: Witch From Mercury, with the website for the series featuring a new description of the series along with several new character designs for both the pilots and their mechs that will be featured in the next chapter of the popular franchise:

Mobile Suit Gundam the Witch from Mercury anime, scheduled for this October!

The new description for Gundam: Witch From Mercury reads as such: 
“A.S. (Ad Stella) 122
An era when a multitude of corporations have entered space and built a huge economic system. A lone girl from the remote planet Mercury transfers to the Asticassia School of Technology, run by the Beneritt Group which dominates the mobile suit industry.
Her name is Suletta Mercury. With a scarlet light burning in her pure heart, this girl walks step by step through a new world.”
The upcoming television series is set to be directed by Hiroshi Hayashi, a long-time animator in the anime industry who was worked on the likes of Tenchi Muyo, Bubblegum Crisis, El-Hazard, and even Thundercats. With the series being brought to life by Sunrise, the company that has animated countless Gundam movies and television series over the years, this is set to be a major chapter in the franchise.”
While Gundam is still tearing it up in the world of anime, Netflix is continuing production on a live-action movie that will see the director of Kong: Skull Island, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, which will presumably re-tell the story of the original series that first introduced the world to the now legendary mechs.
