is it a copyright issue with the vocals? or the fact that they used several OP songs as normal for anime series usually switching over at the halfway point, in the case of zeta with 50 episodes

No, both the OPs "Zeta - Toki wo Koete" and "Mizu no Hoshi e Ai wo Komete", along with the EP "Hoshizora no Believe" were composed by the American singer and songwriter Neil Sadaka. Zeta being "Better Days are Coming", Mizu being "For Us to Decide", and Hoshizora "Bad and Beautiful," all rewritten most likely with lyrics written by Tomino under a pen name.

Due to US copyright and Neil's apparent dislike of them (even though he was apparently paid for their use) they haven't been able to use them in the US.

Dare I dream?

From the design of the title screen, it's in a very very similar style to Iron-Blooded Orphans. I wonder if this might also prelude our first female Gundam MC? In a mainline series that is. For a franchise that has generally done better than many at giving leading ladies chances to shine and stand out independent of the leading boys, the main animation series have usually stuck to the same formula.

Apparently IBO is getting something unrelated to this, slated for some sort of OVA.

Be in mind that formula has had since Zeta a large amount of female writers as part of staff.

The other IBO announcement was the Urdr Hunt mobile game finally getting anything close to a release date, but it's been delayed for years so who knows if it'll actually arrive next year XD

Of my favorite female anime characters one from Gundam scores in my top 10 list.

And like most of the characters i like she isn't the love interest or in need of saving.

Spoiler:



In true gundam fashion she has a rich back story.....and she dies.

I've seen some speculation that it might be references a Witch from Mercury old pulp novel. I haven't read it but certainly seems interesting. https://www.amazon.com/PLANETS-ADVENTURE-WITCH-MERCURY-BEAST-JEWEL-ebook/dp/B003C8G6X2

I'm hopeful Witch from Mercury will be another AU from Sunrise.
