posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The Gundam.info portal site revealed on Friday that the 13-episode television series recompilation of the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin anime will premiere on April 29 on NHK-General. The site also revealed the series' visual and full title as Kidō Senshi Gundam: The Origin Zenya - Akai Suisei (Mobile Suit Gundam the Origin - Eve of the Red Comet).
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. Yasuhiko designed the characters in the first Gundam anime, and he serves as the chief director and storyboarder for the Gundam: The Origin anime. Yasuhiko revealed last year that Gundam: The Origin is his last anime.
The six-episode anime debuted in Japanese theaters from 2015 to 2018. The story centers around the childhood and early adulthood of Char Aznable, the skilled Zeon ace pilot known as The Red Comet, who serves as antagonist and foil to original series protagonist Amuro Ray.
