On the planet Mercury, the advanced technology of cybernetic prostheses has led to the development of giant pilotable robots. However, prolonged use of these achievements in bioengineering takes a significant toll on a pilot's body. As the Merucians' mobile suits gain formidable power, fear rises among the people of Earth.

On her daughter Ericht's fourth birthday, pilot Elnora Samaya tests the state-of-the-art Gundam Lfrith under the watchful eye of its creator, Cardo Nabo. Ericht visits Elnora at work despite orders not to, and chaos unfolds after she forms a strange bond with her mother's mecha.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The prologue premiered at the GUNDAM NEXT FUTURE -LINK THE UNIVERSE multi-venue event at the Gundam Base Virtual World and the four life-sized Gundam statue sites.

"Happy birthday dear Ericht…"

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury (Prologue) serves really well as a, well, prologue.

It's a great first step, and an essential one, to the follow up series (that is currentely airing as I'm writing this and you just really check out).

Here in this 25 minute episode we're hit with a lot of emotions that at first glance may seem irrelevant as most of the characters here aren't in the show for reasons I'll not elaborate here, but this standalone episode manages to make you feel for them in a really compelling way, and for me that's it's biggest strength.

Well, that and ...

The WfM prologue is simply amazing. The animation is tight and fluid and there are never any overt signs of them resorting to CGI to pad the budget. The soundtrack is a perfect complement to every scene, swinging from orchestral highs to bassy digital lows that underline everything happening on screen. Additionally, the sound design itself is so clear and crisp that there’s an impact and almost addictive tone to everything. The designs of the mechs themselves, which will always fall under the territory of subjective taste, are all incredibly solid and interesting machines that highlight the differences in design philosophy between the two companies ...

It's funny that the original MSG—as well as many other mech titles of the 1980s and onward—would get ragged on for being the equivalent of overly long toy commercials, but as time went on and the genre became more sophisticated and scripting improved, this ceased to be a common criticism, yet it seems like we've come full circle and now it looks more like a toy commercial than ever, as the overcooked CGI varnish slathered all over the mobile suits makes them look like stop-motion action figures, zipping around through space and firing lasers and satellite weapons everywhere.

I don't want to be too harsh ...
