Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Releases New Season 2 Trailer

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury isn't quite like any of the previous stories in the popular mech franchise. Introducing anime viewers to Suletta Mercury, a young Gundam pilot struggling with a high school that focuses on mech battles, the first season became a hit with fans of the most popular anime mech property. Now, a new trailer has arrived for the second season of Gundam's latest anime, which has a start date of April 9th. 

The Gundam series has only gained traction in the pop culture world, with the Mobile Suit series releasing a recent video game in Gundam Evolution and past anime series like Gundam Wing and G Gundam remaining fan favorites. With Japan having Gundam Cafes, Gundam models that have sold over five hundred million units to date, and life-sized statues that can even walk under their own power, the mech franchise doesn't appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. The producers of this latest series took a risk in changing the game, but Gundam has attracted some new fans in following Suletta's unique arc.
