Welcome, one and all, to a new issue of AniWeekly! This week, we saw MyAnimeList find a new home, Chiller retake the anime mantle, and the unveiling of a new Gundam. It’s a smaller week than usual, but still one that’s incredibly exciting!

The Red Comet mysterious past is becoming a bit less mysterious. A new subtitled trailer for the upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin II: Artesia’s Sorrow hit the web. The 90-second teaser gives but a small taste of the full feature, which hits Japanese theaters in October.
