The January 2013 issue of Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday Super magazine announced on Saturday that manga artist Daichi Banjou will launch the Kidō Senshi Gundam: Kokui no Kariudo (Mobile Suit Gundam: The Hunters in Black) series in the following issue on December 24.
The manga series will be an original story set in the final months of the same One Year War seen in the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime series. It will follow Lieutenant Commander Steiner, an ace pilot who leads the Zeon mobile suit unit Kokui no Kariudo.
Banjou and writer Nobuhiro Sakata created the golf manga series Dan Doh!! from 1995 to 2000, and the series inspired a 2004 television series that Bandai Entertainment released in North America.
Update: The title uses the "kariudo" pronunciation. Thanks, Manga News.
