More delays are in store for Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch of Mercury, which previously aired a special program in place of its seventh episode on November 13. 

This time, the show is pushing back its 11th and 12th episodes. Episode 11’s delay is due to the Houdou no Hi 2022 special program airing on December 18, resulting in the episode being pushed to December 25. Meanwhile, Episode 12, which is also the first cour finale, will only air on January 8 as a result of special year-end programming taking the January 1 broadcast slot.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury premiered on October 2 and is streaming internationally on Crunchyroll, Ani-One Asia’s YouTube channel, Bilibili, and the Gundam.info channel. Its Prologue prequel short was released publicly via the Gundam.info channel on September 1. 

The show is airing in MBS and TBS’s revived Nichigo time slot, a slot in which multiple cour anime tend to run with consecutive cours. In The Witch from Mercury‘s case, its second cour will begin in April 2023.

The premise is described as:

A.S. (Ad Stella) 122―

An era when a multitude of corporations have entered space and built a huge economic system.
A lone girl from the remote planet Mercury transfers to the Asticassia School of Technology,
run by the Beneritt Group which dominates the mobile suit industry.

Her name is Suletta Mercury.
With a scarlet light burning in her pure heart,
this girl walks step by step through a new world.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury‘s main staff includes Hiroshi Kobayashi (Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan, Kiznaiver) as director, Ryou Andou (Interviews with Monster Girls director) as assistant director, Ichirou Ohkouchi (Code Geass) as series composer, and illustrator Mogumo as original character designer. Marie Tagashira (Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway’s Flash character animation director), Juri Toida (Gundam Build Divers Battlogue), and Hirotoshi Takaya (Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt animation character designer) are the character designers. Bandai Namco Filmworks is the animation production company.

Meanwhile, the cast includes Kana Ichinose as Sulette Mercury, Lynn as Miorene Rembran, Youhei Azakami as Gel Jeturk, Natsuki Hanae as Elan Ceres, Makoto Furukawa as Shaddiq Zenelli, and Miyu Tomita as Chuatury Panlunch. Haruka Shiraishi is substituting for Yume Miyamoto in the role of Nika Nanaura beginning from Episode 10 due to the latter’s health.
