Gundam: The 08th MS Team BD Box to Add New Short Film
posted on by Egan Loo
The Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team original video anime series will get a Blu-ray Memorial Box on February 22, 2013, and the box will bundle a brand-new short film, "Sanjigen to no Tatakai" (Battle in Three Dimensions, pictured right). Ichiro Okouchi wrote the scenario, which follows the 08th MS Team (led by Shiro Amada in the Gundam Ez-8) through the jungle zone towards the next battlefront. Just as they approach a bridge, the team is attacked by the Zeon forces from the front, left, right, and the air.
The 26,250-yen (US$330) set will include the anime series' 12 episodes (including the epilogue special), a promotional video and commercial collection, the pilot film, the credit-less opening and ending animation sequences, a storyboard collection, a collection of illustrations from magazines and promotional materials, and a 42-page booklet with the scenario for the short film. The bonus extras Blu-ray Disc will have "Sanjigen to no Tatakai," and The 08th MS Team Data Archives. The video series will have both the original soundtrack and the 5.1ch version.
Hajime Katoki is illustrating the box, and Kunio Okawara, Kimitoshi Yamane, and Toshihiro Kawamoto are illustrating the jackets for the three main discs inside. The animation staff of the short film are illustrating the jacket for the bonus extras disc.
