‘Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans’ to Air in October 2015

This afternoon, the Gundam press conference held in THE GRAND HALL in Shinagawa, Japan, was streamed worldwide and translated to multiple languages for all the fans of Gundam across the planet.

During the conference, much of the new Gundam merchandise was displayed, along with a large model of the featured Mobile Suit: the Gundam Barbatos.

The conference also unveiled the promised details of the latest anime installment of the Gundam Series: ‘Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans‘, which takes place in a world ravaged by a great strife named the ‘THE CALAMITY WAR’ which happened 300 years before the beginning of the story.

The main characters are Mikazuki Augus and Orga Itsuka, members of the Civil Defense Company ‘Chyrse Guard Security’ (abbreviated as CGS) based in Mars. Mikazuki of CGS is tasked to protect Kudelia Aina Bernstein, a woman who seeks to liberate the Martian city of Chryse from Earth’s rule.

However, a military organization ‘GJALLARHORN’ kindles the flames of revolution, forcing CGS to retreat by using Mikazuki’s unit as decoys. But the leader of Mikazuki’s unit, Orga Itsuka sees this as an opportunity to raise the flag of revolution and initiate a coup d’état. Mikazuki, who is then entrusted by Orga to repel the forces of GJALLARHORN, then begins to pilot the mobile suit used during the CALAMITY WAR which had since been used by CGS as a nuclear reactor: the Gundam Barbatos.
