Mobile Suit Gundam UC Bande Dessinée Prequel Manga Ends Next Month
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's November issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Gundam Ace magazine announced on Wednesday that Kouzo Oomori's Mobile Suit Gundam UC Bande Dessinée Episode:0 manga will end in the next issue on October 26.
The prequel manga is based on the Sengo no Sensō (The Postwar War) short story that appears in the 11th volume of Harutoshi Fukui's original Mobile Suit Gundam UC novels. The story centers on the Neo Zeon remnants' hijacking of the Sinanju Stein mobile suit.
The manga debuted in Monthly Gundam Ace in October 2017. As with the main Mobile Suit Gundam UC Bande Dessinée manga, Yoshikazu Yasuhiko is credited with the original character designs, and Hajime Katoki is credited with mechanical design.
Oomori began the Mobile Suit Gundam UC Bande Dessinée manga in Monthly Gundam Ace in 2010 and ended it in December 2016. Fukui launched the original Mobile Suit Gundam UC novels in 2007 and ended its main story in 2009 with the 10th volume.
The novels also inspired an original video anime (OVA) series with theatrical screenings. The OVAs were later remixed into the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096 television anime.
