I think art will be looking like Gundam Unicorn or better

I don't like 0079 so I already lost most of my hope for this being good. Unless they make the story and characters more interesting as well as the battles plus update the art.

Will give this a shot anyways.

Basically it will be like the original 0079 but much better because Tomino won't fuck it up

Also, I wonder how many people in this thread have read any of this comic beyond the initial few issues Viz translated

So Far I been reading the Manga and I'm pretty excited about it. If they are adapting this it's gonna be pretty great.

The Origin Manga is pretty gritty compared to the anime, and it's actually pretty violent too, people dying in horrible ways on like every other page. Amuro got tweaked alittle, it really shows his transformation from boy to solider. Bright seems to changed alot, He comes off inexperienced and borderline incompetent but keeps this cocky I know what I'm doing attitude.

Also there seems so kind of sexual tension going on between Char and Garma....

But the biggest changes are the Mobile suits. Guncannons and Guntanks are now the early suits the Federation used to fight off the zeon and they been around for years. There are 3 Gundams (which there always where in the anime you just never saw them) 01 kinda looks an early GM, 02 retains the Classic gundam look with some new add ons. and 03 which I'm guessing is the G3 but we haven't seen it in the manga yet.

but yea the story remains largely the same, just with some tweaks and new ideas that really make it interesting and gritty.

Actually MSG is a series in which the anime version was released first, so the anime IS the source material. The manga as well follows the anime very closely. What I'm assuming you're referring to is the novel, which has a radically different intro and ending, although much of the stuff in between is the same. The most significant difference between the original anime/manga version and the novel version is that in the novel Amuro is killed at A Baoa Qu before the battle's conclusion. This, of course, is considered non-canon. The reason for the difference is that even though the first book was released after the start of the anime, the final book in the novels was completed before the anime finished, and the author did not know that they intended to keep Amuro alive, and so he killed him off in the novel.

That being said, MSG: The Origin is already a completed manga series, which is simply a more detailed retelling of the original anime plot (some of the events were also slightly altered and moved around so some events happen in a different order). So don't expect a new story or a new ending. Its the same thing as the original MSG, overall. The only new thing that people who have already seen the original MSG will get is a more fleshed out plot and pretty new HD animations. Which suits me just fine.

SIEG ZEON!!! Now we will have an anime that will be 3 times the power than that of any Gundam shows so far as the Red Comet Char Aznable returns!

People slapped Amuro (and Kamille) quite a bit considering they were awful pilots themselves and kinda needed NewTypes to get stuff done.

Well now i only want this gundam series: http://myanimelist.net/manga/20946/Mobile_Suit_Gundam_Side_Story:_Space_to_the_End_of_a_Flash
It only a manga. so it Fucking need a animated series...


That got a game adaptation bundled in Gundam Encounters in Space, it was also localized to boot.

An anime would be good as well oh and a Blue Destiny Anime.


I also Like Lost War Chronicles. All those 3 is good for a OVA...

AGE is already confirmed a TV series.

Does anyone know if Origins is going to be an OVA or a TV series (or a guess)?

Huh, I swore the early reports mentioned it being a TV series, but now that I go back and look I can't find where I (thought I) read that. I guess we don't know yet?
