Watch 7 minutes of the Red Comet in Gundam: The Origin


Watch the veritable Red Comet in action!

Fans of the Red Comet, rejoice! We finally get to see Char Aznable in action in this new trailer for the upcoming first part of the OVA adaptation of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin. The trailer features Char Aznable laying waste on Earth Federation ships, with the second part about Char's childhood. I'm totally loving the great animation using modern technology and techniques that look modern yet still have that 1970's anime sensibilities complete with those 1970's anime character designs.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin is a retelling of the original 1979 Gundam anime television show, adapted from the manga of same name that began serialization in 2002. The OVA release will be in four parts with the first release, titled "The Blue Eyed Casval", will focus on Char Aznable and his sister, Sayla Mass.

The first part of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin will premiere in Japan at limited theaters on February 28, 2015 as part of the 35th anniversary of the Gundam franchise. Pre-orders are available on March 19, 2015 on Daisuki.net.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
