Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin Panel from MCM London Comic Con May 2016


One of the highlights of the MCM London Comic Con May 2016 was that SUNRISE, and Mobile Suit Gundam: The Oirigin, Producer Osamu Taniguchi and Mechanical Designer for SUNRISE Mika Akitaka would be the anime guest of honour and be hosting their own panel at the event.

This panel, which saw the European Premiere of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Oirigin – Episode III take place along, also featured an hour-long-segment which saw both Osamu Taniguchi and Mika Akitaka provide insight into the world of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin, the process of creating the animation itself and what the future has in-store for the Origin series. For Gundam fans, such as myself, it was an insightful look into the world of one of the oldest anime franchises to date and if you somehow managed to miss this panel you can see it all (excluding the film of course) in our video below.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin Episodes I, II and III are now available on Blu-ray and DVD across the world meanwhile Episode IV is due later this year with a fifth episode, depicting the battle seen at the start of the first episode, will be released at some point within the next year.
