If you’ve seen Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury, then you’ve seen the Gundam Calibarn.
We first saw the Gundam Calibarn in episode 22 of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury.
It is piloted by the series’ protagonist, Suletta Mercury.
So, what other interesting stories or features does it have waiting to be discovered?
Don’t leave. The exciting story is coming soon!
The X-EX01 Gundam Calibarn (X-EX01 „ā¨„É≥„ÉÄ„É†„ā≠„É£„É™„Éź„Éľ„É≥ X-EX01 Gandamu KyaribńĀn?) is a mobile suit introduced in Mobile Suit Gundam the Witch from Mercury. The Suletta Mercury uses it near the finale of Season 2.
During the Vanadis Incident, the Space Assembly League took the Gundam Calibarn. It was also called “Monster” after Caliban, a figure in Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
The Gundam Calibarn is different from other Gundam-type mobile suits. It doesn’t have filters to decrease feedback from the GUND format data storm.
However, it can maintain a higher Permet Score for the same amount of Permet.
Judging by the looks, its beam cannon was designed after a witch’s broomstick. Which also gives boosts to the Gundam Calibarn’s mobility when needed.
Every Sunday, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury airs on all 28 MBS/TBS stations in Japan. It also airs at the same time on some streaming sites around the world.
As of this writing, the show’s second season will conclude with its 24th episode on Sunday, July 2, 2023.
In the brow, there are two places to fire. These weak beam guns fire quickly and are used to track enemy movement, damage equipment, etc.
A multi-purpose platform made up of 11 Bit Staves that had been equipped to the Aerial. It works as a shield and a GUND-BIT, a remote-controlled swarm attack system for the next generation.
Each bit (Bit Stave) can be detached to be operated as a mobile turret with built-in Beam Cannons or as a shield.
A long portable firearm and the main weapon of the Caliban. At its back is a unit with four Quadra Thrusters that can also move the Calibarn.
A weapon for close combat that generates a beam blade, two are stored on top of the backpack.
The Calibarn’s Shell Unit has a different control system than Lfrith-types. Depending on its gund format operation level, it also gives off a unique rainbow-colored light.
A form in which the unit’s legs spread out. It has special features for controlling its stance while moving through space.
The Bits can quickly get more fuel and electricity by connecting the Bit Staves to the hard points all over the machine. It makes the Calibarn more mobile and better at defending itself.
The Calibarn was a Gundam-like mobile suit made to compete with the XGF-02 Gundam Lfrith. But because it didn’t have any way to protect the pilot from the GUND Format, the Lfrith was picked as Ochs Earth’s main Gundam. All records of the Calibarn’s development were erased.
Later, during the Vanadis Incident, the Space Assembly League took control of the Calibarn. It was called a “monster” because it was so dangerous.
Ericht Samaya and Prospera Mercury planned to use Quiet Zero to take control of the Earth Sphere. Suletta Mercury would drive the Calibarn to meet them. After the Space Assembly League’s Interplanetary Laser Transmission System badly damages the Gundam Aerial Rebuild, Suletta and Ericht steal the Aerial’s GUND Bits for the Calibarn and take control of the Gundam Pharact and Gundam Schwarzette to create a data storm strong enough to shut down the Interplanetary Laser remotely.
The resulting data storm would kill the Calibarn and other nearby machines using the GUND Format.
Gundam Calibarn won the final fight, which shook the universe. Its pilot, Captain Lira, showed skill and determination that were unmatched.
When there was no longer a chance of a war between galaxies, Calibarn’s power core. It was once a sign of death, was used to make energy instead.
After making ties that can’t be broken, Lira and her loyal crew set off on a new mission. To explore uncharted realms and work for peace between the stars.
Hope and unity took over as the Gundam Calibarn disappeared into the distance, showing the world. Even the most powerful weapons could be turned into tools of peace.
