Gundam production and distribution company Bandai Namco Filmworks(Sunrise) and publisher Kadokawa have both issued similar official statements regarding the “controversial” mention of marriage between the Witch from Mercury main characters Suletta Mercury and Miorine Rembran in an interview with actresses Kana Ichinose and Lynn in the September 2023 issue of Gundam Ace. The digital version of the monthly magazine was later edited to remove marriage from Ichinose’s comment. The Bandai company is choosing to leave their relationship and the events of the finale open to interpretation.
