Megumi Han's mother Keiko Han was the original voice of Lalah Sune in the first Mobile Suit Gundam series and subsequent projects. Furuya played Amuro Ray in the first Gundam storyline as well. However, Shuuichi Ikeda, the voice of Char Aznable in the first anime, is not in this cast, and other characters are also played by different cast members.
Mankyū ([email protected], DD Hokuto no Ken, Donyatsu, Tono to Issho) is directing and writing the anime. Sao Tamado ([email protected], 30-sai no Hoken Taiiku) is designing the characters, and Sunrise is planning and producing the anime. Ohwada is credited with the story, and as in previous Gundam projects, the Sunrise staff's collective pen name "Hajime Yatate" and Yoshiyuki Tomino are credited for the original story.
The weekly series of anime shorts will premiere on the BS11 channel on Sunday, July 6 at 7:28 p.m.
The four-panel comedy manga features Amuro, Lalah, Char, and other characters from Yoshiyuki Tomino and Sunrise's classic real robot anime franchise in "side-splitting gags." Owada (Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku - The Legend of Koizumi) launched the manga in the magazine in 2001, and Kadokawa published the 11th compiled volume in Japan in March. Owada's Great Magical Gap (Magical Witch Punie-chan) and Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku manga also inspired anime.
