Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Season II
Free Jazz? Check. Outer Space? Check. Wrecked GMs? Check. A freaking Zeong? Check. The much awaited second season of Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt is finally announced and will continue the rivalry between Zeon Living Dead Division’s Daryl Lorenz and EFF Moore Brotherhood’s Io Flemming. The show will follow through the events of Season 1 which ended with the RX-78 Full Armor Gundam being destroyed and Io caught behind enemy lines, the short trailer shows the said battle which led to the Gundam’s demise, the Zeong wrecking a few GMs and of course, the snazzy free jazz which became one of the show’s most iconic features. Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Season 2 is set for Spring of 2017 and is based on the original manga created by Yasuo Ohtagaki.
