It's a bit of a blast from the past, but many Gundam
fans, or anime fans for that matter, born in or after the mid-'80s cut their teeth on the hot robot-on-robot action of Gundam Wing
that broadcast here on Cartoon Network. Besides novelizations very little of significance has been heard from the After Colony
warrens of the Gundam-verse for a decade now, but that all changed yesterday with the announcement in Kadokawa's Monthly Gundam Ace
magazine that a new manga based off Endless Waltz
is in the works.
The news comes from the Japanese-language blog Kyō mo Yarareyaku
) and says that Tomofumi Ogasawara (illustrator for the novelizations Mobile Suit Gundam Seed
and Zeonic Front
) will provide art while Katsuyuki Sumisawa, writer of the orignial Gundam Wing
series, is penning the story. The new story will be named Gundam W: Endless Waltz: The Glory of the Defeated
. Try saying that three times fast.
