Anime Limited to Release Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans and Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A Wakening of the Trailblazer on Blu-Ray

During the past few months Anime Limited, otherwise known as All The Anime, have released a steady stream of Gundam related titles and today the UK based anime distributor-come-publisher have today announced that Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans and Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A Wakening of the Trailblazer will also be added to their ever-expanding Gundam catalogue of titles.

Sadly Anime Limited have not provided much details on what to expect from each release, in terms of packaging and presentation at least, but Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans will be released in two ‘Part’ instalments with each Part containing an entire season while Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A Wakening of the Trailblazer, which is a feature-length-film conclusion to the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 TV series, will feature the entire film and the 3-part “Special Edition” Season 1 & 2 compilation OVAs.

Both titles will be dubbed in English and Japanese (with English subtitles), with the Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans English dub produced by FUNimation and the Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A Wakening of the Trailblazer English dub produced by Bandai Entertainment. The complication OVA’s included with the film will most likely be subtitled only. Although neither titles have been released on home-video in the UK they have been dubbed and released on home video in North America; while Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans is available to stream in its entirety on Netflix UK in both dubbed and subbed formats.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans: The year is P.D. 323. Three centuries after theCalamity War, a new world order is maintained by the military organization Gjallarhorn, but the seeds of a new conflict are being sown on Mars. A private security company accepts a mission to escort the revolutionary leader Kudelia Aina Bernstein to Earth,and the company’s child soldiers rise up in revolt against the adults who betrayed them. Among them is Mikazuki Augus, who becomes the pilot of the Gundam Barbatos, a dreadful relic left over from the Calamity War.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A Wakening of the Trailblazer: The new government of the Earth Sphere Federation is carrying out a program of peaceful reconciliation and preparing for the appearance of the Innovators who will lead the human race into a new era. But the return of a derelict Jupiter exploration ship marks the beginning of an unprecedented crisis. What are the alien entities known as Extraterrestrial Living-metal Shape-shifters? What do they want? And will Setsuna F. Seiei and his fellow Gundam Meisters be able to answer these questions before humanity is wiped out?

Further details about each release will be revealed later in the year, but the first part of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans is expected to be released on Blu-Ray later this year and Anime Limited are, depending on asset availability, hoping to produce a similar Collector’s Edition release that is on par with their other Gundam related projects.
