The global streaming service Bandai Channel has announced that the first seven minutes of the Mobile Suit Gundam UC anime series is now streamed in English today. (The announcement was made earlier on Monday, but the stream was not ready until now.) The stream features French, Spanish, Traditional Chinese (Mandarin), and Traditional Chinese (Cantonese) subtitles, in addition to the English dubbing.
The Gundam UC anime adapts Harutoshi Fukui's 10 novel volumes of the same name, which are set in the same Universal Century (UC) timeline as Yoshiyuki Tomino and Sunrise's first Mobile Suit Gundam science-fiction television anime series and its sequels. Bandai Visual's first Blu-ray Disc volume for the series will ship on March 12 simultaneously in several countries with Japanese and English dubbing, as well as Japanese, English, French, Spanish, and Chinese subtitles. The first of six DVD volumes will ship on the same day with Japanese dubbing as well as Japanese and English subtitles. The first 58-minute episode, featuring the English dub, will premiere in America at San Francisco's Viz Cinema theater from March 19 to March 25.
