I've been reading The Origins. I hope they keep it close to the source. I haven't seen all the 0079, but from what I have seen it was close to the manga. How will the OVAs be different?


Ive seen all of 0079 but not all the manga, its close from what I've seen. Tomino is a better writer though, I wish he would have collaborated with him. I also didn't like his descision to make Ramba Ral younger. He was a cool old dude.

??? The OVA adapts a flashback arc in Origins that is not in 0079.

Oh Thank God. The wait may be still a bit long but more Gundam Origin is always a good thing to see.
