Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Season 2 has been announced!
Gundam is one of the most popular mecha series of all time, and Studio Sunrise s’ Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury is the latest installment in the fan-favorite franchise.
The premise is set in a distant future wherein the solar system is separated by Spacians and Earthians who follow a new calendar system of Ad Stella. To survive in this harsh environment, Vanadis Institute created man-machine systems called GUND.
The Mobile Suit Development Council banned the making of GUND mechs, and Council member Delling Rembran deployed the special forces team Dominicus to destroy the Vanadis research facility Fólkvangr, killing everyone aboard.
The only survivors from the destruction were mobile suit test pilot Elnora Samaya and her four-year-old daughter Ericht Samaya.
The story of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury takes place in Ad Stella 122, 21 years after the Vanadis incident. Suletta Mercury is a lone girl who is transferred to the Asticassia School of Technology at the behest of her mother.
Asticassia School of Technology is the leading group in the mobile suit industry, where all quarrel between students is settled through duels. Suletta meets Miorine Rembran, fiancé of the best pilot in the school Guel Jeturk who asks her to move in with him.
Suletta doesn’t like the decision and challenges him to a duel to settle the difference, which she wins, but her victory brings suspicion as she is piloting a forbidden type of Gundam.
Her victory is voided, but Miorine challenges again with higher stakes, and now Suletta must become champion once more to stop the injustice.

Before the season one premiere, the official Twitter account confirmed that Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch from Mercury would be broadcasted in split cour.
Although the official website labels the second half of the story as Kidou Senshi Gundam: Suisei no Majo Season 2, sometimes the continuation is also referred to as Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Part 2 by anime fans since it is the 2nd cour in the series.
Hence, Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch from Mercury Season 2 could also be considered to be Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch from Mercury Season 1 Part 2.
Moreover, there will be Blu-ray/DVD volumes released covering the first season, with each cour having four volumes. Check out the release dates for each volume below:
|Part 1 Volume 1||24th March 2023|
|Part 1 Volume 2||26th April 2023|
|Part 1 Volume 3||26th May 2023|
|Part 1 Volume 4||28th June 2023|
|Part 2 Volume 1||27th September 2023|

MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM: THE WITCH FROM MERCURY SEASON 2 PLOT
Currently, there is no official plot or synopsis yet for the second cour of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury.
Since the series is an original net animation, there is no source material in the form of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury manga or light novel, so we can only assume what its story will be about based on the first cour’s events.
The ending of the anime’s first cour introduces the Dawn of Fold, an anti-Spacian organization that’s based on Earth.
We learn that aside from Suletta Mercury, the titular Witch from Mercury, the Dawn of Fold also has its witches from Earth, namely Sophie Pulone and Norea Du Noc.
Leading up to the first cour’s finale, we see Sophie meeting Suletta in Plant Quetta, much to the former’s (rather sinister) excitement.
Based on these events, we can predict that the anime’s second cour will most likely focus on the confrontation between the witch from Mercury and the witches from Earth and the ramifications of their encounters.
