The official Twitter account of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury posted an illustration used as an ending card for episode 9 on Sunday. The illustration was shared after the episode, titled “If I Could Take One More Step Toward You” finished airing. Shirabi, known as the illustrator of 86 -Eighty-Six- and The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done! light novels drew the art. The newest Gundam anime is airing every Sunday in Japan.
The illustration shows Shaddiq Zenelli standing at the center, surrounded by five female characters in their uniforms: Sabina Fardin and Ireesha Plano can be seen on the right, while Henao Jazz, Maisie May, and Renee Costa are on the left.
Shirabi is drawing illustrations for Asato Asato’s 86 -Eighty Six- being published under KADOKAWA’s novel label Dengeki Bunko and Shiro Shiratori’s The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done! that is being released by SB Creative’s novel label GA Bunko.
