Fans of Gundam will be happy to hear Toonami announced a recent acquisition of a series for its lineup later this year! Looks like Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans will make its debut sometime soon on Toonami! Here's a description:

The series will take the closest-ever look in Gundam’s 35-year history at the bonds and clashes between its protagonists and the drama of their growth to adulthood, telling the story of a band of young boys and the changes their own maturation spurs in the “Gundam”.

Led by Anohana director Tatsuyuki Nagai and written by Mari Okada, IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS will feature an all-star staff of mechanical design by Naohiro Washio, Kanetake Ebikawa, Ippei Gyoubu, Kenji Teraoka, and Tamotsu Shinohara, with character concepts by Yu Ito designed for animation by Michinori Chiba and music by Masaru Yokoyama.

It's been awhile since we've seen a Gundam show on American television so I'm hyped for this! Has anyone watched the Sub? Is it something to look forward to? The animation looks amazing!
