Penultimate chapter to debut on March 2 with theme by Aimer
Channel service began streaming the first seven minutes from episode 6 of the
Mobile Suit Gundam UC anime series in English on Friday.
The "Sora to Hoshi to [Uchū to Chikyū to]"
("Two Worlds, Two Tomorrows" or literally, Space, Earth, and…)
episode will debut on March 2, 2013 in 16 theaters — four more theaters than
the previous episodes had. It will also stream on-demand on that date.
The 16 theaters will sell exclusive theater editions of the
episode's Blu-ray Disc, while regular stores will begin offering the Blu-ray
and DVD on March 22. Both the exclusive theater edition and the limited first
edition at retail will have a special 110-minute bonus Blu-ray Disc with the
entire "Film & Live 2012" event from May 13 of last year, as well
as an "episode 6 making & interview video."
The sixth episode was to have been the final one of the
series, but the "Film & Live 2012" event revealed that there will
be a seventh one "in the near future."
