In addition, Amuro Ray himself, Toru Furuya, will be in attendance.
Shukou Murase (Genocidal Organ) is directing the project over at Sunrise. (Yasuyuki Mutou Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096) is penning the script, while Pablo Uchida, Naoyuki Onda, and Shigeki Kuhara are adapting Haruhiko Mikimoto’s original character designs for the anime.
Legendary anime director, Yoshiyuki “Kill’em All” Tomino wrote the Hathaway’s Flash novel series, and the new anime is adapting it. The novel series deals with the aftermath of Char’s counterattack, and happens in the events between the film and the Gundam UC anime. It follows Hathaway Noa, Bright Noa and Mirei’s son. As for Tomino’s other work, we can only hope that his Gundam Crossbone manga will get an adaptation as well.
