Crunchyroll to simulcast The Helpful Fox Senko-san, Gundam Origin TV series, Isekai Quartet & Wise Man’s Grandchild

Streaming service Crunchyroll has announced a couple more titles to join their Spring 2019 simulcast line-up over the past few days.

Mobile Suit Gundam the Origin: Advent of the Red Comet
(Kidou Senshi Gundam: The Origin – Zenya Akai Suisei)

The first anime announced was a TV compilation of the Mobile Suit Gundam the Origin OVA series. The first episode will begin airing on Sunday, April 28th in Japanese audio with English subtitles for territories worldwide outside of Asia.

Plot Synopsis via Crunchyroll:

The tragic story of Char Aznable, the ace pilot known as the Red Comet, and his sister Sayla Mass unfolds against the backdrop of the events leading to the One Year War. The Zabi family’s rise to power, the birth of the Principality of Zeon, the early days of famous aces such as Ramba Ral and the Black Tri-Stars, the development of the revolutionary new weapon known as the mobile suit, and the road to war against the Earth Federation are all depicted onscreen for the first time.

The next couple has already begun streaming over on Funimation (both English audio & Japanese audio with English subtitles), and will now be heading to Crunchyroll. You can watch the following with new episodes appearing around the same time as Funimation’s:
