Gundam Thunderbolt Green-Lit for Anime!

You heard right! The popular manga series Gundam Thunderbolt is getting it’s very own anime adaptation! A teaser website has just recently been developed to announce the upcoming anime. Looks like Sunrise Studios will be animating the new show, and copyright licenses have been given to Sotsu Agency.

Mobile Suit Gundam was and continues to be a staple in the Mecha genre of anime. Today, Gundams are a huge part of anime culture, and fans have seen tons of shows integrate Gundams as a plot source (Mobile Suit Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, etc.). So, where does Gundam Thunderbolt fit into the universe? Is it a sequel to the beloved Mobile Suit Gundam series? Well, not quite.

Gundam Thunderbolt will take place in the same universe as the original Mobile Suit Gundam series, however, the story will focus on two pilots in the Principality of Zeon and the Earth Federation at the “Thunderbolt Sector” during the One Year War in UC 0079 that was introduced in the first series. That’s all we know for now, but we will hopefully get more information as the series gets closer to it’s premier! Until then, keep your eyes peeled for more Gundam Thunderbolt news!
