I do not know what it’s however I would like it.Picture: SunriseMobile Swimsuit Gundam has, for essentially the most half, spent the final decade specializing in its variations on each big-screen and small. Whereas sequence just like the model-kit themed Gundam Construct sequence and adaptive works like The Origin and Thunderbolt have stored the long-lasting mecha sequence on TV, its main initiatives pushing the sequence ahead have been on movie, like Gundam: Hathaway. That’s, till now.This morning Dawn introduced that the primary solely new Gundam TV sequence—as in, a non-adaptive, authentic entry to the saga’s sprawling timelines—since Cellular Swimsuit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans will start airing in 2022. Titled Cellular Swimsuit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury, or G-Witch for brief, the present is being focused as “a piece that even younger generations will help,” in keeping with a press release from Koji Fujiwara, Bandai Namco’s Chief Gundam Officer (a job title I would really like instantly). Except for the title and launch window, particulars on the brand new sequence stay sparse. It’s unknown, for instance, if the sequence shall be set in considered one of Gundam’s a number of beforehand established timelines—whether or not the long-lasting Common Century, the timeline of the unique sequence and nearly all of the franchises’ successors, films, manga, novels, and video games, or one of many different alternates like Gundam Wing’s “After Colony” setting or Iron-Blooded Orphans’ “Submit Catastrophe”—or a completely authentic one. It’s additionally unknown what the sequence is even about, though a fantastical title like Witch from Mercury doubtlessly means that the sequence might concentrate on a feminine protagonist, a rarity for Gundam. The thought of a spacebound “Witch” might even draw parallels to probably the most iconic ideas from Gundam past its titular cellular fits: the Newtype, a reputation given to human beings who’ve developed from life within the house colonies in the course of the Common Century, with latent psychic talents. Newtypes—and artificially developed iterations of them often known as Cyber-Newtypes—are a trademark of the Common Century timeline specifically, though variations on the idea have been riffed on in different Gundam materials. So if The Witch from Mercury needs to play with the idea as nicely, it might be very fascinating certainly past extra big robotic astropolitical motion.All that’s hypothesis for now, nevertheless—all we all know is that Gundam is again on TV in an enormous method, and little doubt we’ll study extra as we watch for its launch in 2022.G/O Media might get a fee Questioning the place our RSS feed went?
