Last week, it has been confirmed that there will be a new Gundam anime project that will be revealed this June 13th at a live event. Prior to the announcement, new information had been leaked revealing the new series will be called GUNDAM AGE.
The new series will have three generations of "father, child, and descendant" as the lead characters. The main characters pilot the Gundam unit to fight against an unknown attacking enemy (UE) and save Earth in a "One Hundred Year War" — an apparent homage to the One Year War of the first Gundam series.
The Gundam AGE-1 mobile suit equipped with the AGE System, or a self-adapting computer, will be the main unit this season developed by Furitto Asuno. Other main characters include Asemu Asuno, Furitto's child and Kio Asuno, Furitto's descendant who inherits the Gundam. The Gundam AGE-1 can be augmented as the Gundam AGE-1 Titus for more power, or as the Gundam AGE-1 Sparrow for more speed.
Other characters include Emily, Furitto's friend since he was 7; Guruudekku, a Commander in the Earth Federation Forces and the captain of the battleship Diva; and, Mireesu, a Lieutenant (junior grade) in the Federation Forces aboard the Diva.
The proper announcement would be made through the July issue of Shogakukan's Corocoro Comic magazine. Game developer Level 5 (Inazuma Eleven, Cardboard War Chronicle) is working on all aspects especially Level 5 President Akihiro Hino who will be in charge of the story.
The new Gundam AGE anime series is scheduled to air this fall.
