The time for fans to finally come to terms with Suletta’s murderous innocence is nearly here, as the premiere date for Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury’s second season has officially been confirmed as being just over the horizon.
As per series production studio Sunrise, the further adventures of the Vanadis Institute’s latest troublemakers will begin airing in Japan on April 9th (a date long-time Gundam fans may coincidentally recognize as the 24th anniversary of Turn A‘s original broadcast).
Sunrise further revealed that, a week before the second season’s premiere, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury will air a ‘Pre-Broadcast Special’ recapping everything – from Suletta’s first steps into the Asticassia School of Technology to her shocking saving of Miorine’s life – that’s occurred in the series thus far.
The studio also dropped a new trailer for Suletta’s return, therein giving fans a taste of what’s to come including new mobile suits, new allies, and even more hardships.
Additionally, in a statement shared to the series’ official website (translated via DeepL), Sunrise confirmed that the events of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury’s second season will take place two weeks after season one’s intense finale.
“Two weeks after the Gundam’s attack on Planet Quetta, Sueltta Mercury (CV: Kana Ichinose – Suzu Kanade in Ayakashi Triangle) spends her days at the Asticassia School of Technology anticipating her long awaited reunion with Miorine Rembran,” teased the studio. “Meanwhile, Miorine (CV: Lynn – Assassins in Fate/strange Fake: Whispers of Dawn) has been stationed at the head office of the Benerit Group so she can monitor her father’s condition .”
As of writing, English-language release plans for the series have yet to be confirmed, though they will ostensibly be handled by the same entity as the first, Crunchyroll.
