The official website of the Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans anime announced on Friday that TRUE (Buddy Complex, Maria the Virgin Witch) will perform the next ending theme song "Steel -Tekketsu no Kizuna-" (Steel: Iron-Blooded Bonds).

Man with a Mission is performing the current opening theme song "Raise your flag," and Misia is performing the current closing theme "Orphans no Namida."
The television anime series premiered in Japan on October 4, and Daisuki, Gundam.Info, and Hulu are streaming the series as it airs. Crunchyroll and Funimation are streaming new episodes one week after they air.

Tatsuyuki Nagai is helming the show at Sunrise, with Mari Okada handling series composition.

Naohiro Washio, Kanetake Ebikawa, Ippei Gyōbu, Kenji Teraoka, and Tamotsu Shinohara are designing the mechas for the show. Kusanagi is in charge of art design, and Masaru Yokoyama is composing the music.
