Gundam The Origin Anime & Tomino's Latest to Be Unveiled in 2014-2015

posted on by Egan Loo

Bandai President and "Chief Gundam Officer" Kazunori Ueno confirmed on Monday that his company will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Gundam anime and plastic model franchise with two more projects, in addition to the Gundam Build Fighters television series and the final volume of the Mobile Suit Gundam UC anime.

The "anticipated" latest work from Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino and the anime adaptation of Yoshikazu Yasuhiko's Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga will both be unveiled "sometime between 2014 and 2015."

Ueno presented an image for Tomino's latest work similar to those for "G-Reko," the codename for the previously announced robot project from Tomino. Kadokawa Shoten's Gundam Ace reported last August that this project would be "entering full-fledged production."

Gundam Ace's August 2011 issue had announced that an anime project of Yoshikazu Yasuhiko's Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga would be launching.

The other two major projects marking Gundam's 35th anniversary, Gundam Build Fighters and Mobile Suit Gundam UC's final volume, are slated for this October and next spring, respectively.
