After announcing the new project back in March, Sunrise has finally dropped the first teaser trailer for its latest Mobile Suit Gundam arc, The Witch From Mercury. The new anime series marks the first time the Gundam franchise has chosen a female character as its main protagonist and brings on Kana Ichinose to voice her.
Named Suletta, the young woman comes from a colonized Mercury in the Ad Stella time period, where massive corporations from Earth have helped humanity move beyond its home planet into the rest of the solar system.
Suletta will be piloting Gundam Aerial as she trains at the Asticassia School of Technology, which is owned by a Mobile Suit producer called the Beneritt Group. Other details revolving around the series remain scarce at the moment, so those interested should stay tuned for more trailers and updates to come.
For fans of the Gundam franchise, The Witch From Mercury will premiere in Japan this October, with an international simulcast available.
