MCM London Comic Con May 2016 to Host European Premiere of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin – Episode III


The MCM London Comic Con website have today announced that the May 2016 event, which takes place between the 27th and 29th May 2016, will host the European Premiere of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin – Episode III.

The third OVA Episode in the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin franchise, entitled  Dawn of Rebellion, sees  a younger variation of Char and his future comrade Garma Zabi as they enrol at the Zeon military academy and begin the fight for independence against the Earth Federation. It’s not known if the episode will be shown in English or Japanese but last year, during the MCM loves Anime cinema event, the first two episodes of the franchise were shown in English which prompted some interesting complaints from the crowd.

Interestingly enough that’s not all; as not only will a special SUNRISE Panel be taking place on the Saturday 28th May 2016 but  mecha designer and producer, Mika Akitaka and Osamu Taniguchi, will be guests through the expo weekend whereby fans can meet them and get their autograph.

Further details surrounding the showing of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin – Episode III and the autograph sessions will be confirmed in due time; but for the time being tickets to the MCM London Comic Con can be purchased from the official website.
