With a fall premiere for the second episode of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin in theaters in Japan, it looks like fans won’t have as long of a wait to own it afterwards as it comes roughly a month later. Now set for a November 26th, 2015 debut, the bilingual and subtitled second release will arrive in a collectors edition, a regular edition and a DVD regular edition. The collector’s edition is priced at 10,000 yen, the regular at 6,800 yen and the DVD edition at 5,800 yen.
The collector’s edition is again a welcome elaborate piece where we get another Yasuhiko Yoshikazu illustrated box for it, a new 290 page book of storyboard and cel material and a ten page replication of cels. Add in a 32 page manga piece, a twelve pge booklet and an audio commentary and there’s a lot to like here. The bonus material on disc to be determined is about 15 minutes in length while the main feature is 60 minutes. With a Japanese and English 5.1 mix, it also comes with Japanese, English, French, Korean, Chinese Traditional (Taiwan, Hong Kong), Chinese Simplified Chinese with subtitles
Plot concept: The four-episode project will tell the story of Casval Rem Deikun and Artesia Som Deikun (Char and Sayla, before Char became known as the Red Comet) before the One-Year War in UC.0068.
