Gundam's Witch From Mercury Might Miss Premiere Date

The Witch From Mercury is slated to be the newest arrival featuring the most popular mechs in the anime world, though Gundam fans might be discouraged to learn that the premiere episode might be arriving later than expected. With the series already releasing a prologue episode to give fans an idea when it comes to what the upcoming story will be, at least one outlet focusing on Mobile Suit: Gundam is releasing the news that the first female protagonist to hit the series will be landing past its original arrival date. 

Earlier this summer, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury released its prologue episode giving fans an idea of the new universe featuring the weapons of destruction that fight across the universe. 

Gundam.Info released the official statement when it comes to the upcoming premiere of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury, not sharing a date when it comes to when the first episode might premiere on the website and not confirming whether this delay will affect other streaming options:

"Streaming of Episode 1 of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury at Gundam.Info has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. An updated schedule for the streaming will be available on the official website. Thank you for your understanding."

If you haven't heard much when it comes to the upcoming chapter that will bring back Mobile Suit: Gundam to the small screen, the official description reads as such:

"An era when a multitude of corporations have entered space and built a huge economic system. A lone girl from the remote planet Mercury transfers to the Asticassia School of Technology, run by the Beneritt Group which dominates the mobile suit industry. Her name is Suletta Mercury. With a scarlet light burning in her pure heart, this girl walks step by step through a new world."

The Gundam world isn't just working on this new female-led anime series, it is also working on the next chapter of Hathway's Flash via a new feature-length film, along with its continued work on the live-action feature-length film that is still set to arrive on Netflix.
