New Gundam annoucement possibly Anime Adaptation of Gundam Origin manga
The August issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Gundam Ace magazine is announcing on Saturday that an anime project of Yoshikazu Yasuhiko's Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga is launching. The manga is itself a re-imagining of Yoshiyuki Tomino and Sunrise's first Mobile Suit Gundam anime project by the anime's character designer. Yasuhiko is ending the manga in the same August issue of Gundam Ace.
Yasuhiko launched the manga in Gundam Ace's inaugural issue in 2001. (The magazine is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month with the launch of a Mobile Suit Z Gundam manga by the anime's animation director Hiroyuki Kitazume.) Viz Media published part of the manga in North America.
Bandai Channel had revealed that another new Gundam project would be announced on Saturday.

Well, if this is true! We just got a brand new U.C. series, we won't know the cold hard facts until this weekend when the real announcement is supposed to take place. Gundam Origin was a manga adaptation of the original Gundam 0079 series. So it's kind of funny here...we are getting an adaptation of an adaptation!
Cred goes to Gundam Guy for the cool story.
