About Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin Manga Volume 1 (Hardcover)

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin omnibus 1 features story and art by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko and Yoshiyuki Tomino.

It is the year Universal Century 0079. The Earth Federation is storing and testing a new piloted robot for use in the battle against the Principality of Zeon in a space colony. The experimental RX-78 Gundam mobile suit is scheduled to be transported to Federation command in Jaburo, deep within the Brazilian jungles. Unfortunately, before the transporter arrives the Federation is attacked. With few resources available against the Zeon's most mobile mechs, Federation forces strike back using their new weapon, the mobile suit Gundam.

Caught in the crossfire is a young teen named Amuro Ray. Not willing to see innocent people die, Amuro crawls into the cockpit of the closest machine: a Gundam. Having never operated a machine like this, what are the chances he can do anything to repel an experienced squad of mech-piloting invaders?

A spectacular manga published by Vertical

This review is going to be about the quality of the manga. The art in the cover and manga it self is amazing, it's gorgeous and you can see the expression of the characters clearly. The page quality is one of the best, it includes 56 full color pages and the rest is black and white. This is an omnibus containing the first two volume, it's not too big or small fit perfectly in my hands and look beautiful. I had read it a couple of times and seems that The binding is well made haven't had any issues. When touched the cover feels good and soft(it's a hardcover so I'm referring to touching texture), just by holding and feeling the manga you notice right away the great quality and that it's made with care and precision to details. If you ask me would you recommend buying? I would say yes yes and yes. It's a great story and you get a badass quality manga. Job well done Vertical.

A Must Buy for Any Gundam Fan!!!


This hardcover Gundam retelling is fantastic. The artwork is superb, various Mobile Suits within have been updated from their older counterparts (I'm looking at you Guntank), and the pace of the story is not rushed. Though the price is high for your standard omnibus styled volume, this is a hardcover masterpiece with extras such as artwork and multiple essays to read from fans and publishers influenced by the series when they were children watching the series.
