Fans Of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury are in for a treat as the Blu-ray release of the anime has brought forth official confirmation regarding the marital status of the protagonists, Suletta Mercury and Miorine Rembran.
The confirmation comes after series director Hiroshi Kobayashi, in an interview featured in the final volume of the Blu-ray collection, disclosed that Suletta and Miorine are indeed married.
In the interview, Kobayashi stated, “We had decided to write an epilogue, but we didn’t decide on the specific number of years until later. The ending itself is similar to The Tempest, with Suletta and Miorine getting married and becoming partners“.
Following the reveal, fans also started pointing out that in the Blu-ray version of the anime, Miorine was seen with a ring on her finger in the scene where she reunites with Suletta. The ring wasn’t there in the episode that aired on TV.
An earlier interview in the Gundam Ace magazine featuring the voice actresses Kana Ichinose and Lynn, who played Suletta and Miorine, had also reportedly confirmed the union of the two characters.
However, the digital version of the magazine had altered Kana Ichinose’s comment in the interview, where the mention of marriage between the two characters was completely removed, leaving fans disappointed.
This was addressed by the staff of the anime by releasing an official statement, explaining that the mention of Suletta and Miorine’s marriage in the Gundam Ace interview was an error, and that the interview contained statements based on speculation from the staff.
At that time the staff had said that the interpretation and the understanding of the story was upto the viewers, and this included Suletta and Miorine’s relationship status too.
Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From The Mercury anime aired from October 2022 to April 2023 in 2 cours. The series was animated by Bandai Namco Filmworks.
