News Gundam/Ideon's Yoshiyuki Tomino to Launch G Reko
posted on 2011-09-09 08:45 EDT
The inaugural issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype Ace magazine is announcing on Saturday that creator Yoshiyuki Tomino (Gundam, Ideon) is launching a new project called G Reko. The announcement does not indicate G Reko's type of media or venue. The magazine issue does feature imageboard art from the project.
Since last year, Tomino has been discussing "Hajimetai Capital G no Monogatari," a proposed new novel project which features the space-science/science-fiction concept of a space elevator. This method of ferrying objects from a planet's surface to orbit is a plot point in such anime as The Super Dimension Century Orguss, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, and Tomino's own Turn A Gundam.
Update: More background information added. The "G Reko" name is a codename and not the finalized title.
