OLD GUNDAM PUBLICATIONS

Over the years my Gundam collection has steadily grown. I’ve been on a quest to try and locate older Gundam material from the formative years of Gundam and provide fans in the community an insight into works that will never, ever see the light of day in English much less the Japanese side again. Periodically, I update random entries on the database listing with a somewhat comprehensive summary for the entry in particular. Some of them I haven’t been able to update any more since I have had trouble tracking down future volumes things were serialized in. Nonetheless, I’d like to highlight some of the stranger entries in the Gundam universe:

Mobile Suit Gundam 0080 Sidestory: Burn Stormer -Wandering Lambs-
Mobile Suit Gundam Saigon 0081
Top Gundam
MS Senki Sidestory: Born to be wild again ~Soldiers of Fortune Again~
Mobile Suit Gundam Sidestory Craft Folk (newest addition)

I’ll eventually be getting around to adding scans and translations of some of the short chapters (such as Craft Folk for example). They’re quirky stories and some of them I wish would’ve been fleshed out more (like Saigon 0081).

TWILIGHT AXIS – NEW MECHANICS

The two gigantic weapons from Twilight Axis have been revealed:

RX-78KU-01 KURWENAL

A massive armed base that incorporates the Gundam AN-01 “Tristan” as it’s central unit. Developed behind the scenes by Birnam. Just like their mobile suits, it is unknown how they acquired the armaments and the exterior equipment. Wielded by Quentin Fermo, a Cyber Newtype acting as a mercenary for the privated armed group Birnam, he chases after the Mastema forces along with Arlette and Danton who appeared at Axis.

AMA-X4 AHAVA AZIERU

A mobile armor recently confirmed to be within Axis. Equipped with an I-field generator, it was stored in an incomplete state. Arlette pilots it in a hurry in order to counter the attack brought on by the Birnam’s Kurwenal.

New Gundam Manga Coming

The October issue of Gundam Ace teased a new Gundam manga that’ll be starting in the November issue out on September 26th.

TWILIGHT AXIS NEWS

Gundam.info updated with some screenshots for the latest clip of Twilight Axis. With that came a release for the Gundam Fan Club’s advance showings of the mini episodes:

#1 …… 2017.06.23
#2 …… 2017.07.07
#3 …… 2017.07.21
#4 …… 2017.08.04
#5 …… 2017.08.18
#6 …… 2017.09.01

Granted, this is for the Gundam Fan Club only with zero indication as to when this will debut on Youtube and what not. Furthermore, Chapter 5 (1) of the novel series was also released to the Fan Club. We can probably expect that to be posted on the Yatate Bunko website in a couple of weeks thus allowing for my translations to continue.
