posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The Gundam.info website posted the first 13 minutes of the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin anime's third episode, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin III Dawn of Rebellion (Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin III Akatsuki no Hōki), on Tuesday. The video is available with the English dub, or with the Japanese audio and English, French, Korean, or Chinese subtitles.
The anime will screen in 15 theaters in Japan for two weeks starting on May 21, although the episode already screened at a special event in Yokohama on Sunday, May 8. A limited-edition version of the Blu-ray Disc will go on sale at the theaters screening the episode on May 21 in Japan, and on May 28 worldwide, and the standard Blu-ray Disc and DVD will ship in Japan on June 10.
The episode follows the youth who would become known as Char Aznable and his future comrade Garma Zabi after they join the Zeons' military academy.
The OVA's first episode, titled "Blue-Eyed Casval," premiered in a limited engagement in Japanese theaters in February 2015. The second episode, "Artesia's Sorrow," opened in Japan last October. Anime Consortium Japan is releasing the series digitally worldwide through a premium rental streaming program, and Right Stuf — in collaboration with Sunrise — is releasing the series on home video.
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.
