Updates for the Gundam universe
Sunrise’s animation studio has long been linked to the Gundam franchise, having created several different series and movies in the long-running mecha series. Having also lent his talent to characters like Cowboy Bebop, Inuyasha, Gintama, and many other greats from the anime world.
From the images that have been shown in the trailers and promotional material, it appears the studio is looking to get it out of the park once again. Throughout 2020, Gundam suffered major setbacks, one of the most important being the delay in its participation in the Tokyo Summer Olympics and the G-Satellite.
Although Olympic plans were frozen along with the event itself, the franchise was able to help facilitate the arrival of the ‘Walking Gundam,’ a life-size statue of a mobile suit that can walk on its own. Are you excited about the arrival of Gundam Hathaway’s Flash?
