At the second Gundam Conference, three new Gundam anime projects, a movie, a special, and an anime, were announced. All of these new projects are expected to release in 2022 at to be determined dates. To see all of the anime that's been confirmed for 2022 so far, check out the 2022 anime schedule.
The first project is a movie titled Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan’s Island, which is a name we already know thanks to the 15th episode of Mobile Suit Gundam (1979). Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, who's worked as a character designer and director on multiple Mobile Suit Gundam projects, including Mobile Suit Gundam and Mobile Suit Gundam Zeta Gundam, is directing the movie. You may also know him as the mangaka behind the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga series.
The second project is a new anime called Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury. A scheduled time frame or release date for this one has yet to be revealed, but little details were given about the series as a whole. Right now, all we have is a title, but we will keep you posted as more details are announced.
And finally, the third project that was revealed is a 9-part special edition of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans that compiles the series and is set to broadcast in Japan in the Spring of 2022. It is set to release around the same time as the upcoming smartphone app, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans G. Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans is one of our favorite mecha anime that's currently streaming on Netflix, so we are looking forward to this special edition release.
A lot of new Gundam anime projects to look forward to in 2022! We will continue to update this post as more details, such as synopses and release dates are announced, so stay tuned!
