The Sunrise anime studio's official website for its Gundam anime franchise has announced on Tuesday that the two Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ Memorial Box Blu-ray Disc (BD) sets will bundle two "Gundam Frag." short films. According to the website, viewers of these exclusive BD shorts "can catch a glimpse of the daily and not-so-daily life on the battlefield in the Universal Century" timeline of the first Gundam stories. (The "Frag." in the title stands for "fragment.")
The 1986-1987 Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ anime was the third Gundam television series that franchise creator and director Yoshiyuki Tomino oversaw. While Bandai Entertainment has released the first two Gundam television series, Mobile Suit Gundam and Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, in English in North America, there have been no similar announced plans for Gundam ZZ. The first Japanese Blu-ray Disc box for Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ will ship on September 25, and the second and final box will ship on November 25. The first box will include a 48-page booklet, two versions of the opening animation sequence without text credits, and the ending animation without text credits.
