The North American distributor Bandai Entertainment has announced at its New York Comic Con 2008 panel on Friday that it has licensed the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 anime series and the Ghost Slayers Ayashi manga.
Director Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist) remade the Gundam robot anime mythos for the 25-episode Gundam 00 television series which aired from last October to this past March. The story takes place on an Earth fractured by the control of energy and centers on four Gundam Meister pilots who execute a controversial plan to eradicate war.
