Kadokawa announced in their Gundam Ace magazine that they will be launching a spin-off manga of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin.

The new manga will be titled Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin MSD: Cucuruz Doan no Shima and will tell the story of Cucuruz Doan, a character introduced in the original Mobile Suit Gundam anime series. However, the episode that Cucuruz appears is not in the English version of the anime. Additionally, this will be a re-imagining for the original Mobile Suit Gundam series.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin MSD: Cucuruz Doan no Shima will be drawn by Junji Ōno and will release in Gundam Ace’s July issue on May 26.

    For fuck sake, you can bet your ass that the mobile suit gundam series in the west needs a re-release then to include the one episode that was excluded because of some dumbass excuse while japanese release did have it. you can even watch the episode on youtube.

      I think the fact that it’s one of the few true filler episodes (most have some bit at the start or end that advances the main plot), the animation being subpar even for the series, and the plot not making any damn sense was plenty of reason to exclude it.

      But let’s be honest is there any real reason not to include it regardless even as a bonus for ppl who do wanna see it. its about getting the option and if they felt it was subpar it should ahve not been included in the japanese version. basicly compared to anime nowadays the whole series is subpar so 1 episode extra doesen’t really matter.
