The third TV ad for the newest Gundam anime series, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans (Kidō Senshi Gundam: Tekketsu no Orphans), is currently airing in Japan.

Narration & Text: Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans begins airing on Sunday, October 4 at 5 p.m.
Narration: The sustenance of life is on the battlefield.

The first ad aired last month, and the second aired earlier this month.

The show is set 300 years after a great conflict between Earth and Mars known as the "Calamity War." A woman named Kudelia sets out on a journey to Earth to speak for the independence of the Martian city of Chryse, which is under the control of the Earth government. Escorting her is the private security company CGS, which protagonists Mikazuki Augus and Orga Itsuka are members of. When a group named Gjallarhorn attacks CGS and Kudelia, Orga sees this as a chance to rebel against CGS and launch a coup. Mikazuki and Orga are thrust into a new conflict. To fend off Gjallarhorn, Mikazuki rides an old mobile suit from the Calamity War, powered by a nuclear reactor, the Gundam Barbatos.

The anime's main cast includes:

Kengo Kawanishi as Mikazuki Augus
