The official Gundam YouTube channel began streaming the first seven-minutes of "Artesia's Sorrow," the second episode of the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin original video anime project, on Sunday. The channel is streaming the trailer in in Japanese with English subtitles and with an English dub. The video first recaps the events of the first episode "Blue-Eyed Casval," which describes the history of the foundation of the Universal Century's Principality of Zeon, before launching into the episode itself.

Sunrise's official Gundam portal site previously streamed trailers for "Artesia's Sorrow."

The official English website for the anime announced the English dub cast in September.

The newly added cast includes:

The cast members reprising their roles from the first episode's English dub include:

The episode will run in 15 theaters in Japan for two weeks starting on October 31. Most of the staff and cast are returning from the first episode, but Nana Harada will replace Ichiro Itano and Kiyoshi Egami as unit director.

In the Japanese version of "Artesia's Sorrow," Shuuichi Ikeda and Megumi Han are reprising their roles as Edward Mass (later known as Char Aznable, formerly Casval Rem Deikun) and Sayla Mass (formerly Artesia Som Deikun), respectively. New cast members include:

The episode's story moves three years ahead to U.C. 0071. The story will follow the tearful separation of the siblings Casval and Artesia (before they became known as Char and Sayla). It will also feature more of the development of the mobile suits, particularly on the Zeon side.

The anime project adapts Yoshikazu Yasuhiko's manga of the same name, which in turn is inspired by the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime's story. The OVA's first episode, titled "Blue-Eyed Casval," premiered in a limited engagement in Japanese theaters on February 28. Anime Consortium Japan began a premium paid streaming of the episode with both the Japanese and English dubs on its Daisuki service on the same date. Right Stuf, in collaboration with Sunrise, offered the first volume in a Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo pack on April 24.
