In early March 2022, rock-group MAN WITH A MISSION was announced to perform the theme song “Blaze” for the Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans nine-episode “digest” series; as the band performed the series’ first opening theme song “Raise Your Flag.” The special edition began airing in April.
The band has released a new music video of the song, featuring memorable moments from the popular 2015 Gundam series. “Blaze” is a part of the group’s new album Break and Cross the Walls II, which releases May 25.
The special edition of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans was announced during the 2nd Gundam Conference in September 2021 to coincide with the release of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans G. Revealed in 2019, Iron-Blooded Orphans G is a new smartphone app set to release spring 2022 where fans can re-experience seasons one and two of the TV series through gameplay and anime components, as well as a new spin off story, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans- Urðr-Hunt.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans- Urdr-Hunt was announced in 2019 by Bandai Namco Entertainment and Sunrise as a spin-off to the Iron-Blooded Orphans TV anime, featured in the mobile game Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans G. Produced by Sunrise BEYOND, Urdr-Hunt takes place between seasons one and two of the Iron-Blooded Orphans series, set on the Venus colony of Radonista, following protagonist Wistario Afam piloting the mysterious Gundam Hajiroboshi.

It is the year P.D. 323. Gjallarhorn’s political interference in Arbrau escalated into an armed conflict and came to an end thanks to Tekkadan.
News of Tekkadan’s exploits has also reached the ears of Wistario Afam, a young man born and raised at the Radonitsa Colony near Venus. Venus, which lost to Mars in the initial contest for colony development, is a remote planet in which the four economic blocs have little interest. It is now used as a penal colony for criminals, whose inhabitants don’t even have IDs.
