    Sunrise announced that the fifth OVA episode of the 6 part ova series Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin anime will open in Japan on September 2 in 35 theaters — more than double the previous four episodes' 15 theaters.

    The episode, titled "Clash at Loum" will cover the Battle of Loum, the pivotal conflict in the One Year War's early days before most of the events depicted in the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime. The battle came after the Operation British space colony drop and other devastating events that wiped out nearly a third of the human population. Char Aznable, the nemesis of the first Gundam anime's protagonist Amuro Ray, became famous as the legendary ace "Red Comet" during this war.










    Right Stuf — in collaboration with Sunrise — is releasing the series on home video.

    The Gundam.info portal site began streaming a second English-subtitled trailer on Thursday for "Clash at Loum," the fifth episode of the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin anime and the first in the anime's "Loum Arc." The video also features subtitles in five other languages.

    I haven't seen the OVA yet but having vol 1 - 6 of the original manga I'm really hoping that they'll get around to adapting that (the current OVA is a prequel to said manga) It's one of the most epic and engrossing manga I have read and easily one of the best Gundam series. The manga is sort of a remake of the original Mobile Suit Gundam but having seen the first of the original Gundam compilation movies (which covers events that in The Origin are chronicled in vol 1 - 5) I can safely say the original series looks like amateur hour compared to The Origin so if they will eventually adapt the manga, it's proabably gonna be one of the most epic anime of all time.

    Gundam The Origin's manga creator Yoshikazu Yasuhiko has stated at a screening event for Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin V: Clash at Loum(Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin V: Loum no Kaisen) that "there will be more" of the anime series. Yasuhiko said he wants the anime to show the One-Year War arc next, but clarified that there isn't any official word yet on whether the anime will continue after the Loum Arc ends with the sixth episode.
