Mobile Suit Gundam Witch from Mercury Season 2

The continuation of Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch from Mercury has been set. The twelve episode and finale of the first season of the show aired on January 8, 2023 on most services. Following the conclusion, the official Twitter account for the series announced a broadcast window for the next batch of episodes. Gundam The Witch from Mercury season 2 will air in April 2023, a break of about three months.

In Japan, the series will air on the MBS and TBS networks, as well as 28 other channels throughout the country.

For international markets, release plans have not yet been announced. Streaming services including Crunchyroll, Netflix, and the Bandai-run GundamInfo YouTube channel all carried The Witch From Mercury season 1 in various regions. Bandai even expanded the distribution for the GundamInfo-hosted version to new countries, though on a stagged schedule.

For those who’ve yet to catch up, Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch From Mercury season 2 promises to pick up on the cliffhanger that closed out season 1. Suletta Mercury is the pilot of the Aerial, and a student at the Asticassia School of Technology. There the children of elite solar system corporations settle conflicts in mobile suit duels. At the outset of the story, Suletta and Aerial are guarding a secret: Aerial is a Gundam, a mobile suit incorporating forbidden “GUND” format technology. The users of Gundams and the developers of GUND tech are called witches and persecuted by the world under the orders of Delling Rembran, head of the Benerit Group of companies and one of the most powerful men in the system.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury will air its next season in April 2023. The first season is available from various services.
