As a lot of you should know by now, Vertical Inc. has obtained the licensing to translate and release Gundam: The Origin the manga in LIMITED (VERY VERY LIMITED) Edition HARDBOUND in several volumes. They are planned to be as close to the limited edition hardbound releases released in Japan shortly after the manga made it’s completed run. They are working to make sure every essay and article that was added as bonuses to the Japanese releases is translated for us.
This is an amazing opportunity for Gundam fans! ALL Pre-orders will be filled! They will only have a limited run of books after pre-orders are filled. Amazon has the pre-order up for LESS THAN $20! Rightstuf has it for under $25! These books will be OVER 400 pages! Hard Bound! Lots of full colored pages! Only $20!
Amazon pre-orders lock in prices or if the price goes down, they give you the lower price. amazon has a tendency to lower their prices as more and more pre-orders come in! Spread the word! Make your orders! Vertical Inc has stated that if Gundam: The Origin does well, they will try to get us more Gundam publications! They do Manga AND Novels! Imagine being able to read Char’s Counterattack: Beltochika’s Children or Gundam Unicorn in English novel form!
Let’s all PLEASE show our support of this release! Go buy it, now! First volume is release this coming spring!
