Synopsis

Zeon ace pilot, Commander Char Aznable, thought he could foil the Federation's plan to build a mobile suit by attacking their research base on colony Side 7. He was wrong. With a prototype already active, the besieged Federation forces strike back using their new weapon, the mobile suit Gundam, with devastating consequences. Amidst the fighting, young electronics wizard Amuro Ray is determined not to let his friends and family die in the crossfire. But what can one boy do to repel a squad of mobile suit-clad invaders?

Gundam the Origin is written/illustrated by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko who was in charge of the character design from the Original tv series. It is basically a retelling of the Original 1979 tv series, but with more detail. For example, we get Char background story, how the Zabi family rise into power, and the development of Mobile Suits.

The Plot is the same from the Original, The Principality of Zeon declared war of Independence against the Earth Federation. This is known as the One Year War.

The art is fantastic, everything is illustrated in high quality. Every details is shown including character facial expression, mobile suit and read more
