I got something pretty cool in the mail today - “Yoshikazu Yasuhiko Drawings for Animation from Mobile Suit Gundam the Movies & the Original TV series” I know it’s a mouthful, but uuuh, it’s basically just a bunch of genga drawings Yas did. And it’s totally sweet, take a look!
Also I’m pretty sure the first three dudes in that last image are Yas himself, Ichiro Itano and Hideaki Anno, who interviews those two in the back. I’m not so sure who the last guy is though.
Holy shit where did this come from, ebay? Was this published recently or is it vintage? JEALOUSSSSS
That came out this year. It’s been taunting me at Kinokuniya. :<
Gundam The Origin: Vol 2 came today and whoops accidentally opened right to this page.

Hooray!! They are here!! Gundam the ORIGIN vol 2 review copies have arrived!!

There it is… The first copy of Gundam THE ORIGIN vol 1. Wow, it has been a long time coming, but in a few weeks the wait will finally be over. Expect to see these in stores soon with some nice store placement in key markets.

Remember, folks! Barnes & Noble increased their order by a ton to gauge in-store sales. If you don’t already have a preorder in, buying from a physical store will help guarantee that B&N will stock later volumes, increasing access to the series for new readers and uninitiated Gundam fans.
This book is a treasure for comics and mecha fans alike!
An insider’s look at our wet-proof of Gundam the Origin part 1. Yup that’s what the sheets look like before they are cut and bound.
Man, I really like these covers for Gundam the ORIGIN. Mmm, foil!!! (Deluxe Edition cover from Kadokawa Books)
What do you think? Should we follow this pattern for our English Edition?!
Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes.
I’m so excited about this (and you should be too!)
