What I am hoping is another mainline Gundam series for the end of the year. However, this short Gundam series should be a nice warm-up I think.

MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM TWILIGHT AXIS #1 FREE DELIVERY STARTING JUNE 23RD!
#2 ONWARD TO BE WEEKLY EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTION ON GUNDAM FAN CLUB!

The latest preview for the anime version of Mobile Suit Gundam Twilight Axis has debuted today!

The anime will be a short animation in six installments. Shorts 1-5 will be about 3 minutes each and the final one will be about 8 minutes. Episode 1 will debut for free on the Gundam Fan Club, GundamInfo, Yatate Bunko, Banday Channel and Youtube. Subsequent episodes will have advance showings via the Gundam Fan Club.

NEW CHARACTERS & MECHA!

Mehmet Merca: Belongs to the “Ministry’s Department Six” of the Intelligence Bureau under the direct control of the Earth Federation Government. He is the commanding officer of the Earth Federation Forces Special Forces “Mastema” unit. His rank is Lieutenant JG. He is ordered to collect research materials related to the psycho frame from a research facility that is located within Axis. He requests Arlette and Danton to accompany his team as guides to Axis and acts as their guard.

Quentin Fermo: A Cyber Newtype attached to the mysterious armed organization called “Birnam” which attacked “Mastema” that entered Axis to investigate. He appears to have been subject to various experiments at the Newtype labs established at the Earth Federation Forces Augusta base. His current background and reasons why he appeared at Axis are unknown.

RGM-89 Jegan (Birnam Affiliated Unit): A suit used by the mobile suit unit led by Quentin Fermo which attacked the Mastema special forces led by Mehmet. It is the main mass production suit of the Earth Federation Forces. The route which “Birnam” obtained this suit and the details of the unique upgrades made to it are not clear.

RX-160G Byarlant Isolde: A mobile suit from the mysterious “Birnam” forces which attacked the Mastema special forces. Quentin’s younger brother Walter Fermo is the pilot of this unit. Although it is an upgraded suit based on the Byarlant, the way it was acquired and development history are unknown.

AMX-104 R-Jarja: A prototype mobile suit for close combat that is descended from the YMS-15 Gyan of the Principality of Zeon. It was developed by the Neo Zeon and left in a storage dock on Axis. It was a suit that Arlette once worked on.

SUMMARY

It is the later half of U.C.0096. The Earth Federation government, threatened by the existence of the “psycho frame,” organizes the “Mastema” special forces unit under Lieutenant JG Mehmet Merca who is under the direct control of the Intelligence Bureau. He is handed down vital instructions to infiltrate and investigate a severed portion of Axis floating in the Earth Sphere.

Among the members of the investigation team accompanying him are two civilians: Arlette Almage and Danton Hyleg, a former engineer and test pilot for the Principality of Zeon and Neo Zeon.

The investigation team that infiltrated Axis comes under attack by a new model “Gundam” of the private group “Birnam” at a base where no one should be. Although Danton and Arlette fight back with a red Zaku III Custom whose development they were once involved in, they encounter various critical stages.

Among them are certain “feelings” Arlette hid in her heart as she heads for the remains of the Sazabi, left abandoned on the surface of Axis…

CAST

Arlette Almage: Risa Shimizu
Danton Hyleg: Shuhei Sakaguchi
Mehmet Merca: Daisuke Ono
Quentin Fermo: Toshiki Masuda

Damn and I thought S2 of thunderbolt was over compressing its source material. Can't say i'm thrilled about this especially since I enjoyed the first few chapters. Now the question is will this cover the entire novel, which is still ongoing, or just up to a certain point?

Finally decided to check what is this one about:

-Overall I like the whole idea of revisiting Axis and have a mixed EF and Zeon time for the tour.

-The connections between previous and following works (chronologically speaking) sounds good so far.

-One of the central plot lines seems to confirm something that had been speculated on some mangas and video games: That Haman's Axis/Neo Zeon might have been the one that came up with the Psycho Frame concept, likely with the help of Nanai Miguel who according to a MSGZ manga defected from the EF/Titans to Axis/Neo Zeon.

I would really like if someone who can understand japanese could confirm if the reason for the battle between Char's Neo Zeon and Glemy's Rebels Remnants on U.C. 0090 (part of the Missing Link story) might have been seizing the psycho frame research from the later. With Axis under EF control Char would have been unable to retrieve any data from it between U.C. 0089 - 0093 (but leaving the door open for Twilight of Axis).

However, Glemy's forces had seized control of the asteroid before the end of the 1st Neo Zeon War and deployed many of the prototype machines. They seem to have left Axis by the time Glemy was killed and left with a NZ-000 Quin Mantha and who knows what else (I for one would be inclined to think that the Neo Zeon forces from the ZZ Gundam Evolve episode, pursuing a runaway Qubeley Mk II piloted by a Puru clone, were also part of this group).

As a side note, since this battle takes place just a year after the end of the 1st NZ conflict, maybe it was upon seizing the Glemy remnants assets that they became aware of the Puru clones and began their search for any survivors, resulting in Zinnerman finding Puru Twelve (Marida).
