Shuichi Ikeda was the narrator for the recap episode of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury. Ikeda is the voice actor for Char Aznable in all of his appearances in Gundam and beyond. He also provided the voice of Gilbert Durandal in the Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny.
You can actually watch the Shuichi Ikeda recap, as well as another Season 1 special, via the official Japanese Gundam YouTube channel. However, it is restricted to those within Japan. In order to watch it, you must physically be in the country or have a VPN. Ikeda’s recap goes over everything from the first episode to the last one of Season 1, so it obviously contains spoilers for what’s out so far in Gundam: The Witch From Mercury.
