The Gundam.info portal site began streaming a video on Sunday that features the first seven minutes of the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky anime. The video has English subtitles. The last minute of the video previews the English dub.
The site is also streaming the first seven minutes with the full English dub.
Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky is a director's cut edition of the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt net anime. Both anime are based on Yasuo Ohtagaki's Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt manga. The director's cut edition will include additional scenes.
Right Stuf will release an import edition Blu-ray Disc of the director's cut with both English and Japanese audio tracks and in English, Japanese, French, Korean, and Chinese subtitles on July 2. The bonus content included with the Blu-ray Disc will be the same as the Japanese release, but will not include English subtitles. The Blu-ray Disc will include: a box with an illustration by Hajime Katoki, a special disc that includes the "Those Who Challenge the One Year War ~Documentary of Thunderbolt~" video, a storyboard collection, a 108-page "animation works" book, a specially designed inner jacket, a specially designed sleeve case by Ohtagaki, a 16-page booklet, cast and staff audio commentary, and a promo video and commercial collection.
The English dub will star:
- Max Mittelman as Io Fleming
- Johnny Yong Bosch as Daryl Lorenz
- Cherami Leigh as Claudia Peer
- Tara Sands as Karla Mitchum
The net anime's first episode began streaming in December, and the fourth and final episode began streaming in April.
The story is set in the same One Year War in UC 0079 as the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime series, and it follows the battles between two ace pilots at the "Thunderbolt Sector," a shoal zone with numerous wrecks of space colonies and warships.
Update: Added English-dubbed video.
