MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM Twilight AXIS
Last night, a brand new PV for MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM Twilight AXIS was released and it is beautiful.
It was released on the GundamInfo YouTube channel and can be seen below.
What we know so far
The story for Twilight AXIS is based off a novel and takes place a few years after Mobile Suit Gundam: Unicorn. So what exactly does this mean? More UC timeline!
In a change from the regular formula where a kid gets their hands on a Gundam, we finally get to see the other side of things. The protagonists are former Zeon members who are sent out to collect information from an important base used in the One Year War. The main mobile suit is a red Zaku III custom reminiscent of something Char would pilot.
The antagonists are the ones with the Gundam Tristan which is a reskin of Alex from Mobile Suit Gundam: 0080: War in the Pocket. If you’ve never watched it, you missed out on some of the most realistic combat and the atrocities of war. This sets high expectations for Twilight AXIS.
All in all, I can’t wait to watch this new entry to the franchise. The animation looks like something out of Thunderbolt while keeping in some elements from the original. The music is what makes each PV unique as it sounds like it was written for an opera. Good thing this is a space opera am I right?
The worrying thing, which isn’t even a deal breaker for me, is we will only get 6 episodes. Another problem is 5 of these episodes are going to be 3 minutes while the last one is going to be 8 minutes. Apparently, only the first episode will be streamable for non Gundam fanclub members, with the rest being exclusively for members.
The PV also revealed the release date for the first episode which is June 23rd.
Yesterday was a good day for Gundam fans all over the world as we also received news as to when Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin V Clash at Loum is expected to drop.
The trailer follows.
