Right Stuf to Release After War Gundam X, Gundam NT Anime in 2020
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Right Stuf revealed at its panel at Crunchyroll Expo on Sunday that it will release the After War Gundam X anime on Blu-ray Disc in 2020. The company also stated it will release Mobile Suit Gundam NT on home video in 2020.
Right Stuf describes After War Gundam X:
What started as a single space colony's war for independence turned into an all-out war between the space colonies and Earth. No one was safe from the conflict, and Earth, the home of all humanity, suffered heavy damage in the fighting. Almost all of Earth's population – once as many as ten billion people – was lost. It's only now, 15 years after the end of the war, that Earth's environment has at last stabilized again.
Sunrise and Right Stuf previously released After War Gundam X in two DVD sets in 2016. The 39-episode series originally aired in 1996.
Right Stuf describes Mobile Suit Gundam NT:
U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of "Laplace's Box." Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered.
The conflict later dubbed the "Laplace Incident" is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human understanding. The white unicorn and the black lion were sealed away to remove this danger from people's consciousness, and they should now be completely forgotten.
However, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03, which disappeared two years earlier, is now about to show itself in the Earth Sphere once more. A golden phoenix... named Phenex.
The anime film opened in Japan in November 2018. Fathom Events and Sunrise screened the film in the United States with an English dub on February 19. Sunrise worked with NYAV Post to produce the English dub for the anime.
Shunichi Yoshizawa (Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt, Gundam Reconguista in G episode director) directed the anime at Sunrise Studio #1. Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC) penned the script. Kumiko Takahashi was in charge of the main original character designs, and Se Jun Kim (Mobile Suit Gundam Twilight AXIS) designed the characters for animation. Hajime Katoki and Eiji Komatsu were in charge of mechanical design.
