Sunrise has published the second trailer for Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury, which also revealed the upcoming anime show’s theme song. YOASOBI’s “The Blessing” will become the theme song that plays in the opening movies for the first few episodes of Gundam: The Witch from Mercury.
This second trailer features voiceovers for The Witch from Mercury characters for the first time. While the first official trailer in July 2022 showed some fight scenes between Mobile Suits, it did not have any voiced lines.
The Witch from Mercury will take place in the Ad Stella timeline, a new alternate universe separate from the Universal Century and other existing Gundam titles. This universe will have multiple corporations set up a large economic system in space. The story will focus on Suletta Mercury, a 14 years-old girl who comes from the planet Mercury to study at the Asticassia School of Technology. She will also be known for piloting a special Mobile Suit named Gundam Aerial.
Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury will premiere on October 2, 2022. People living outside Japan will also be able to watch the anime’s episodes via simulcast. The Prologue episode for the show is now available worldwide with Japanese voiceovers and subtitles in eight languages—including English—on the GundamInfo channel.
