An official website has opened and announced that novel Mobile Suit Gundam Twilight Axis will get an anime adaptation. The series will stream exclusively on Gundam Fan Club in June 2017.

Synopsis
Universal Century 0096. Several months have passed since the incident surrounding Laplace’s box also known as the Universal Century Charter. The Earth Federation Forces dispatches a group of investigators to the severed Axis which is drifting outside the Earth Sphere. Two civilians participate as members of the research group: Arlette Almage and Danton Hyleg. Both have pasts with government service to the Principality of Zeon and Neo Zeon as an engineer and test pilot. Having infiltrated Axis, the investigators come under attack inside a base where no one should be. Arlette and Dalton are confronted with an incident they never imagined.

Tristan is a Gundam Alex clone with some Zeta parts added, WTF, I hope there's at least something good under the hood because I'm not seeing it.

Directorial dubut for Se Jun Kim so I'm a bit excited. I'm also pretty sure the format will be the same as Unicorn and Origin.

Just watched Gundam Thunderbolt Season 2 today and this is another welcome news.

The premise sounds intriguing too.

This looks hot! I've never fully watched Gundam series. I'll start from scratch. And I'm going to put this on the list as well.

Another thing to my long PTW list. WTH gives us some time to finish the previous serie(counting from Zeta).

So before we got Crossbound, they shorten the gap between unicorn and Hathway Flash
I prefer Gundam Sentinel than this actually
Also Tristan looks like Mk.II with Alex armament


btw
WHERE IS ADVANCE OF Z ADAPTATION, SUNRISE ?????????????

It's a minaturized form of the Alex, whether it ties in with the Formula series of models remains to be seen.

I started reading it, and it's really good. Ark Performance are some of the best writers around for Gundam (more people need to read their other stuff!) I just hope their good script doesn't get butchered in the adaptation process.

The MS designs in their series are somewhat plain, but decent enough.

AOZ and Sentinel will NEVER EVER happen due to different publishers owning the rights to them. As for Crossbone

I've read Gihren Ass Plot and enjoyed it. Not much suited for an adaptation though. I don't expect Twilight Saga to be as dialogue-heavy and light on action? I've heard good things about the Johnny Ridden stuff, but don't plan on reading it until it finishes. Other than that, my only experience with Ark Performance is the Arpeggio of Blue Steel anime (not sure how representative that is of their work).
Sieg Zeon!
