Are you still reeling from the end of the first season of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury? If you’re all caught up, unfortunately you’ll have to wait until April for the series to continue with season 2, but there’s more planned beyond that to celebrate the series.

Sunrise announced plans for a special event to be held for the anime on August 6, taking place at the Makuhari Messe event hall in Chiba Prefecture. Guests announced to attend thus far include voice cast members Kana Ichinose (Suletta Mercury), Lynn (Miorine Rembran), Yohei Azakami (Gurl Jeturk) and others, and tickets will be available via lottery through the Gundam fan club first. 

Fans in Japan will also be able to get lottery tickets through the first Blu-ray of the series, which hits the region on March 24, followed by another round in the third volume. Tickets will also go on sale to the public at a later date. 

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury is being directed by Hiroshi Kobayashi (KIZNAIVER), with Ryo Ando (Interviews with Monster Girls) co-directing and Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass) on series composition. 

Crunchyroll streams the series, describing the story like so:

A.S. (Ad Stella) 122 An era when a multitude of corporations have entered space and built a huge economic system. A lone girl from the remote planet Mercury transfers to the Asticassia School of Technology, run by the Beneritt Group which dominates the mobile suit industry. Her name is Suletta Mercury. With a scarlet light burning in her pure heart, this girl walks step by step through a new world.
