It’s official, the spin-off manga which is set during the same time period as the original 1979 Mobile Suit Gundam TV anime, will itself be getting its very own anime adaptation. That’s right, Yasuo Ohtagaki’s Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt manga will be getting its own anime.


A teaser website for this latest Gundam anime adaptation has also been opened, yet not much news has been announced yet, except for Sunrise producing the animation just like all the previous Gundam anime. More announcements to come.

Set in the One Year War between Zeon and the Earth Federation, Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt follows the story of two ace pilots, one fighting for the Earth Federation, the other fighting for the Principality of Zeon. It is set in the Thunderbolt sector which contains numerous wrecks from ships and colonies.
