After seven years, Gundam has given us its first female protagonist in its brand new anime series. Naturally, everyone is going out of their minds.
The franchise revealed a prologue series for the upcoming anime and it’s like Christmas came early this year for Gundam lovers.
I know I’m hyping this up too much, but after watching Gundam: The Witch From Mercury’s latest trailer, even you’ll join me in this cause. Do mark your calendars for the anime’s release in October 2022.

The video gives a much-needed preview of the famous Asticassia School of Technology, where Gundam pilots and scientists are trained. Suletta Mercury transfers to Asticassia from the planet Mercury with the dream of piloting a Gundam.
Later we get a glimpse of all the new characters we’ll be seeing in the series, followed by some really intense and hair-raising Gundam battles.
The franchise has disclosed the cast of two of the main characters, and we have them listed here for you:
|Suletta Mercury||Kana Ichinose||Yuzuriha Ogawa (Dr. Stone)|
|Miorine Rembran||Lynn||Gilda (The Promised Neverland)|
Since the prequel anime made its debut on July 14, 2022, the franchise has revealed the cast behind the unforgettable characters:
|Ericht Samaya||Kana Ichinose||Yuzuriha Ogawa (Dr. Stone)|
|Elnora Samaya||Mamiko Noto||Aisa Himegami (A Certain Magical Index)|
|Nadim Samaya||Hiroshi Tsuchida||Grisha Yeager (Attack on Titan)|
|Cardo Nabo||Miyuki Ichijou||Elizabeth Liati (Mars Daybreak)|
|Nyla Bertran||Sachiko Kojima||Arusu (Tweeny Witches)|
|Wendy Olent||Yō Taichi||Hiro Soma (Fruits Basket)|
|Delling Rembran||Naoya Uchida||Askeladd (Vinland Saga)|
|Sarius Zenelli||Atsushi Ono||Kaoru Gojō (My Dress-Up Darling)|
|Vim Jeturk||Tetsuo Kanao||Daishi Akita (Concrete Revolutio)|
|Kenanji Avery||Yōji Ueda||Robert E.O. Speedwagon (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)|
Most of them are parents of the characters in the main series. Like Delling Rembran is Miorine’s father, Vim Jeturk is Guel’s father, and so on.
Generally, prequels are pretty sad and end on a tragic note, but I have a feeling it won’t be the same for this one.
I’m super pumped to see what the prologue leads to and how the main series will turn out to be.
