Crunchyroll is adding “Mobile Suit Gundam” to its extensive anime library

Crunchyroll, the world’s most popular anime brand, is adding “Mobile Suit Gundam,” the first series within the iconic Gundam franchise, to its extensive anime library of more than 1,000 titles and 30,000 episodes.

All 42 episodes of the godfather of the mecha genre will be available on Crunchyroll, in both English dub and subtitles.

The subtitled series will also be coming soon to Crunchyroll’s international regions in French, German, Spanish and Portuguese.

The series, also known as “Mobile Suit Gundam 0079,” follows young Amuro Ray as he controls the white mobile suit Gundam.

“Mobile Suit Gundam” complements the more than 10 Gundam titles currently available for fan’s streaming pleasure.

Crunchyroll is currently managing the merchandise rights for five “Gundam” titles across North and South America, the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

These Gundam series include “Mobile Suit Gundam,” “Mobile Suit Gundam Wing,” “Mobile Suit Gundam Seed,” “Mobile Suit Gundam 00,” and “Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans.”

“Mobile Suit Gundam” was created by Yoshiyuki Tomino and was animated and produced by SUNRISE. The series, which revolutionized the mecha anime genre, premiered in 1979 and has since become a worldwide phenomenon as a Top 15 media franchise, grossing more than $20 Billion in total retail sales.

Gundam plastic models (Gunplas) make up 90% of the Japanese character plastic-model market, with more than 500 million models sold to date.

North American merchandising licensees include Bioworld Merchandising, Just Funky, FigPin, Trends Intl., and Loot Crate.
