Yoshikazu Yasuhiko has been the main staff member in the Mobile Suit Gundam series, which has been enthusiastically supported for more than 30 years since its first broadcast in 1979. He spent 10 years to draw this long-form manga. Over the pages of this six-volume comic, the creator has freely utilized his experience of drawing historic manga, drawing a prequel trilogy that had not previously been clarified, and creating a work that transcends the boundaries of comicalization.
