Yes, that anime. If you haven't heard already, the manga series, "Gundam: The Origin" is being adapted into an anime! More on that at the bottom--first, some sexy Okawara tank.
Check this thing out:
I want it...!
Unfortunately, looks like this is yet another Tamashii Nation Exclusive. Looks like it's being marketed as an "add-on pack" for the new Robot Damashii MS-06 Zaku II--hence the high MSRP of 3,675 yen. Yikes. It doesn't have much in the way of extras (just a Magella Top Cannon for Zakus to use). But, hell, it's pretty much the coolest half-tank half-jet I've ever seen. Who wouldn't be terrified to be flying around a mile in the sky only to see an enemy fighter bearing down on you--with a battleship cannon twice as long as its wingspan pointing right at you?
Holy hell, that's awesome.
And before I forget, there's this:
A poor quality scan of Gundam Ace's latest issue, from which we have learned one and only one thing: we are going to see an anime project, of unknown format, based on the manga "Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin." If you haven't read the manga, check it out: it's quite good. The reason for posting this as little more than an addendum to a merch post is because, well, I kind of have to mention it, don't I? I'll make a "real" post once there's more information available, or more legible scans to translate. Hopefully we'll see some movement this weekend, once the issue of Gundam Ace goes on sale.
With luck, we might even see a PV release, too, but I wouldn't hold be breath. As far as I know, there's no special media event being held tomorrow, as there was for the announcement of Gundam Age just last week.
