For the Barel update

posted on
As previously mentioned (08/31/00) the english Newtype website has a preview of the new Gundam story that will begin in the November issue of Newtype Magazine. For The Barel is inspired by the Mobile Suit Gundam novels vol 1-3. The novels, written by Yoshiyuki Tomino's, differ from the Gundam movies significantly.

The new manga will be supervised by Gichi Ohtsuka and features mechanical designs by Junji Ohkubo, as well as character designs by
Shigeto Koyama.

While based on Yoshiyuki Tomino's original novels, For The Barel promices to tell the story of the original 1 year war from a very new perspective.

Pictures from For The Barrel, as well as descriptions of the main characters and the story are available
on the Newtype Website.

Previous reports were unclear as to whether or not For The Barel would be eventually produced as an Anime. However, Fanboy Entertainment is reporting that For The Barel will indeed be animated and that production on the Anime seems to have already begun.

Fanboy goes on to state that this updated retelling may just be the long rumored new Gundam anime that is to be animated specifically for the United States.
