Anime studio Sunrise confirmed at its Gundam panel at Anime Expo on Saturday that the second season of the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt anime will be dubbed into English. Sunrise is producing the dub track from NYAV Post.
Sunrise produced NYAV Post's dub for Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky, the compilation film of the first anime season based on Yasuo Ohtagaki's manga. The annual Sunrise Festival screening series will show the film's English dub at Tokyo's Shinjuku Piccadilly theater on August 15. Sunrise teased at its panel that the English-dubbed screening in Japan will have special guests.
The first season of the net anime began streaming in December 2015, and the fourth and final episode began streaming in April 2016. Right Stuf released an import edition Blu-Ray Disc of Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky with both English and Japanese audio tracks last July.
The second season of the net anime debuted with the fifth episode on March 24. The sixth episode premiered on April 28, the seventh on May 31, and the eighth episode will premiere on July 14. Episodes will again be available via an EST (Electronic Sell Through) service that allows purchasers to download the episode or through a TVOD (Transactional Video on Demand) service that allows rental viewing for a set period.
