Gundam The Origin: Part III To Premiere In Spring 2016

Following the release of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin Part II – Artesia’s Sorrow in Japanese cinemas this weekend, the staff of Sunrise’s OVA series have announced at a special greeeting event in Japan earlier today, that the penultimate instalment in the series will be launching in Spring 2016.

Tohryu Furuya, the voice of Mobile Suit Gundam protagonist Amuro Ray once noted that he perceives the franchise’s overarching theme as “Why do humans engage in war?” and according to Chief Director Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin Part III – Dawn’s Revolt will re-explore that theme as the four-part series heads towards its climax.

Last weekend, the first two parts of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin were screened in London as part of Anime Limited’s “MCM Loves Anime” event.
