Gundam Thunderbolt information is striking like a lightning bolt in a fierce storm.

Earlier today, Bandai Visual started streaming a pair of promotional videos for Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt. The promos, which are 30-second and 90-second versions of the same advertisement, give a brief look at the series in action.

Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt is a four-episode OVA series based on Yasuo Ohtagaki’s manga of the same name. Gundam UC director Kou Matsuo is helming the title at Sunrise, in addition to writing the show’s scripts. Hirotoshi Takaya (Texhnolyze) will provide the title’s character designs, while the team of Morifumi Naka (A Wind Named Amnesia, Texhnolyze), Seiichi Nakatani (Gundam 00), and Hajime Katoki (Gundam Wing, Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team) take charge of mechanical designs.

  • Kara Mitchum: Sayaka Ohara
  • Cornelius Caca: Daisuke Hirakawa
