Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt will now be seeing an anime adaptation. This anime has been based around the Thunderbolt Sector located in the wrecked colonies of the series. The setting of the anime is during the One year War in UC 0079 of the Universal Century. It follows the story of two incredibly talented pilots from the Principality of Zeon and the Earth Federation.
This series has been in the classic Gundam universe but updated for modern illustrations and designs. Like the classic series you get to see some Gundams being ridiculously overpowered compared to other units which makes Gundam Thunderbolt entertaining and at some points even silly at how strong some units are.
The manga was launched in 2012¹ so it is relatively new however should prove to be a great show.
There is no specific release date for the anime series yet but the wait will be well worth it.
