Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt kicked off in the pages of Shogakukan’s Big Comic Superior in 2012. The series is told in parallel to the original Mobile Suit Gundam. In particular, the show takes place in UC 0079, during the One Year War. Federation and Zeon troops clash in a fierce battle a zone known only as the “Thunderbold Sector.” The series revolves around Federation Soldier Io Fleming, as he takes on the Zeon Troops in the Thunderbolt Zone and squares off against legendary sniper Daryl Lorenz.
