A flyer distributed to Japanese bookstores has announced the publication of the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Official File periodical and the decision to start the broadcast of the second season of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 in October of 2008. The animation company Sunrise and the broadcast network TBS/MBS had previously announced that the current first season of the robot war anime series will consist of 25 episodes, and that the second season will air after a brief hiatus.
The two companies had broadcasted Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, another military robot series, in a similar half-year run. Although Sunrise had announced there would be a sequel for Code Geass, the project's official blog had stated in March and reiterated in July that the staffers do not know when this sequel will be released and whether the sequel will have a "TV broadcast, OVA, or theatrical release."
