HMV Listing U.K. Steelbook Edition of Gundam: The Witch From Mercury

posted on by Andrew Osmond
Retailer lists two-part Steelbook edition from Crunchyroll for October 7

The retailer HMV is listing a two-part Blu-ray Steelbook edition of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury (Kidō Senshi Gundam: Suisei no Majo), which is described as being a limited edition exclusive to HMV. Both Steelbook volumes are listed as being released on October 7, and being released by Crunchyroll. (Prior to this, all Gundam anime home releases in the UK for the last decade have been released by Anime Limited.)

A message advertising the release was sent out on HMV's X feed. The story is described on the HMV site as follows:

"A.S. (Ad Stella) 122 - An era when a multitude of corporations have entered space and built a huge economic system. A lone girl from the remote planet Mercury transfers to the Asticassia School of Technology, run by the Beneritt Group which dominates the mobile suit industry. Her name is Suletta Mercury. With a scarlet light burning in her pure heart, this girl walks step by step through a new world."

Hiroshi Kobayashi (Kimi no Iru Machi, Kiznaiver, Spriggan) directed the anime at Bandai Namco Filmworks/Sunrise, with Ryo Ando (Interviews with Monster Girls, Double Decker! Doug & Kirill) as co-director. Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass, Princess Principal, Sk8 the Infinity) was credited for series composition and as scriptwriter. Mogumo was credited for the original character designs, and Marie Tagashira, Juro Toida, and Hirotoshi Takaya drew those character designs for animation. Takashi Ohmama (Castle Town Dandelion, Mobile Suit Gundam Twilight AXIS) composed the music.
