As Mobile Suit Gundam’s 30th anniversary goes on, I have found two new videos that celebrate the occasion in the best way. The first video is a short film entitled ‘Ring of Gundam’ and is written and directed by the original creator of Gundam, Yoshiyuki Tomino. With the exception of his work on the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam compilation films, this represents his first original contribution to the franchise since Turn A Gundam in 2000. The second video is fan gold. This is a short video made for fun by the animators at studio Sunrise that shows every principle Gundam from all of the various spin-off stories over the past thirty years fighting together. It is important to point out that it also features a brief appearance by the Unicorn Gundam from the upcoming Gundam Unicorn OVA series next spring.
And, speaking of Gundam Unicorn, here is the promotional video that was premiered at a Gundam festival in Japan back in August.
