With the single-volume run of the Mobile Suit Gunda: Iron-Blooded Orphans series wrapping up back in 2017 where each of the two seasons had nine volumes released, Bandai Visual is now focusing on the box set side. The distributor has set a March 27th, 2020 release date where there will be three configurations available:
- BD-Box Flagship Edition (Seasons 1 & 2): 60,000 yen
- BD-Box Standard Edition first part (Season 1): 27,000 yen
- BD-Box Standard Edition last part (Season 2): 27, 000 yen
At the moment it looks like all the original on-disc extras are being included but they are being reauthored to fewer discs as the two-season set has thirteen discs.
With the big flagship edition that’s pretty much landing now, we’ve got a look at the full spread for it below and it’s a beauty!

Plot Concept: 300 years after the end of a great war between Earth and Mars called Yakusaisen (Calamity War), the Earth, losing the ruling authority during the war, structured a new world with a ruling system. A new war on Mars is starting while the Earth is in a temporary peace.
The main character Mikazuki Augus, from Chryse Guard Security (CGS), was on a mission to protect Cuderia Aina Bernstein, who wants Chryse, Mars’ city, to be independent of Earth’s ruling. However, a group named Gjallarhorn started a rebellion, attacked CGS and Cuderia, and the adults in CGS decided to use the boys in the team as decoy to evacuate. Orga Itsuka, the leader of the boys, decided to use that as a chance to launch a coup d’état because the adults have been treating them badly for a long time. Mikazuki, with Orga’s request to defeat Gjallargorn, uses Gundam Barbatos, a major mobile suit that CGS used during Yakusaisen to fight.
