Below is the synopsis for Chapter 1: The Blue-Eyed Casval:
“Universal Century 0068, Side 3, Munzo Autonomous Republic. A man of Space preaching for reform, he who declared independence from the Earth Federation Government, Zeon Zum Deikun, suddenly collapsed during a speech during congress. He never returned.
Jimba Ral claims that the death of Deikun is due to a Zabi family conspiracy. However, the Zabi family is speeding up development in Munzo and is spearheaded by Degwin Sodo Zabi. This disturbance has not been made known clear until now, and to the recently orphaned children, Casval and Artesia, a checkered fate awaits them both in these disastrous times.”
