Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin is a manga written and illustrated by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko. It is an adaptation and retelling of the story from the anime television series Mobile Suit Gundam, of which Yasuhiko was the original character designer.
An anime adaptation of the manga, focusing on the stories of Casval Rem Deikun (more famously known as Char Aznable) and his sister Artesia (aka Sayla Mass), is under production by Sunrise for release in 2015. Yasuhiko is the chief director of the adaptation, with Sunrise veteran Takashi Imanishi (Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO) as director, and Katsuyuki Sumisawa (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Inuyasha) as the scriptwriter.
The four-episode project will tell the story of Casval Rem Deikun and Artesia Som Deikun (Char and Sayla, before Char became known as the Red Comet) before the One-Year War in UC.0068.
