Bandai Spirits premium collector’s figure label Tamashii Nations is releasing figures for the two lead characters from the latest Gundam franchise TV installment, Mobile Suit Gundam the Witch from Mercury. Suletta Mercury and Miorine Rembran will be joining the label’s signature “S.H.Figuarts” and “Figuarts mini” brands.
Suletta Mercury is the protagonist of the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury TV anime, portrayed by Kana Ichinose. Suletta is described as second-year student in the piloting department, who transferred to the school from Mercury. Suletta is timid and somewhat lacks communication skills. She is the pilot of the Gundam Aerial developed on Mercury by the Shin Sei Development Corporation.
Miorine Remran is portrayed by voice actress Lynn and is described as an attractive and academically distinguished second-year student in the management strategy department. Miorine is the only daughter of Delling Rembran, the president of the Beneritt Group and chairman of the school’s board. She has a strong rebellious feeling towards her father.
The S.H.Figuarts Suletta Mercury is priced at 7,920 yen, while both of the Figuarts mini Suletta Mercury and Miorine Rembran are priced 2,970 yen each, with all three releasing in April 2023.
Mobile Suit Gundam the Witch from Mercury is directed by Kiznaiver‘s Hiroshi Koyabashi, and penned by Code Geass scribe, Ichiro Ohkouchi. The tagline of the series is “This witch…rides a Gundam”. The series began broadcast October 2, 2022 on twenty-eight of MBS and TBS TV networks on their 5pm “Nichigo” anime block, as well as simulcasted internationally. The Bandai Namco Group announced late September at their Gundam Conference Autumn 2022 that the Witch from Mercury‘s first cour broadcast will be completed in December and the series will resume with its second cour in April 2023.
