Sunrise reveals new Gundam series: Mobile Suit Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans

Sunrise these past few months have been chugging out new Gundam shows as if its going out of style. In fact GUNDAM Reconguista in G just finished its airing back in March and Gunpla based show Gundam Build Fighters Try in April. With two Gundam shows airing a the same time, you would think that Sunrise would take a break from Gundam for at least the Fall season and pick up in the Winter season. Nope, Sunrise will be kicking off the fall season with their latest series, Mobile Suit Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans. Here is the trailer that was shown off during a press conference that Sunrise held earlier today:


Sunrise also revealed a bit of the story/plot as well:


“The show is set 300 years after a great conflict between Earth and Mars known as the “Calamity War.” A woman named Cordelia sets out on a journey to Earth to speak for the independence of the Martian city of Chryse, which is under the control of the Earth government. Escorting her is the private security company CGS, which protagonists Mikazuki Augus and Orga Itsuka are members of. When a group named Gjallarhorn attacks CGS and Cordelia, Orga sees this as a chance to rebel against CGS and launch a coup. Mikazuki and Orga are thrust into a new conflict. To fend off Gjallarhorn, Mikazuki rides an old mobile suit from the Calamity War, powered by a nuclear reactor, the Gundam Barbatos.”


The new series is set to air on October 5, 2015 at 4 PM in 28 of Japan’s channels and will be streamed online.
