The prequel ONA premiered on July 14 and became an instant hit in Japan. Now that the English-subtitled version is out, I can only imagine the massive praise it will receive.

Coming to the main series, it is the fifteenth anime series in Gundam’s main storyline after Iron-Blooded Orphans. By the looks of it, I’m pretty sure this one will break records.

Moreover, the story is really intriguing, and the promotional media have taken our expectations to a new high. It will take Gundam in a highly political direction, with protests and capitalism as some of its themes.

After seven years, Gundam returns with an anime series, along with its first female protagonist.
