2019 has certainly been one of the most active years for Gundam home video releases the UK has ever seen, but we here at Anime Limited aren’t done yet as the Gundam train will keep on rolling through 2020! You can expect more details in the coming months about what to expect next year on the Gundam front in general, but today we want to put the focus on what will be our first Gundam release next year, the films Gundam The Origin V & VI!
These will be getting released together as a Blu-ray Ltd. Collector’s Edition set on 27th January 2020. Have a read on below for the details.
ABOUT GUNDAM THE ORIGIN V & VI
Synopsis: Universal Century 0079
Humanity has turned even space itself into a battlefield, and the Principality of Zeon forces advance after wiping out half the world’s population by carrying out Operation British (the colony drop). In response, the Earth Federation Forces mobilize their overwhelming fighting strength to regain the advantage.
The complex intrigues of the Zabi family… Sayla Mass, as she contends with the whims of fate… the veteran Zeon soldier Ramba Ral and his lover Hamon… Amuro and Fraw, leading peaceful lives at Side 7… a dark shadow falls across them all. And the Zeon ace Char Aznable, driven by revenge, goes into action as the “Battle of Loum” finally begins.

WHAT’S PLANNED FOR THIS RELEASE?
At the time of writing we’re waiting for final sign off on the design for this set, but we can tell in keeping with the theme of other Gundam Collector’s Edition releases of ours, this set will comes packed in a rigid case. Inside that will be an amaray case to hold the Blu-ray disc. (Worth noting that all the on-disc contents of this disc are on an individual Blu-ray. Also inside the rigid case will be a 68-page booklet featuring art from across the two films.)
The films themselves have both English and original Japanese (with English subtitles) viewing options. And also worth noting there’s 2.0 and 5.1 audio for each language with both films. There are also some promotional videos for the two films included as extras as well.
