Fan-Favorite Gundam Novels To Be An Anime Trilogy

A dream has come true for Gundam fans!

Animation studio Sunrise has just announced a trilogy of films based on the fan-favorite Gundam novels, Hathaway’s Flash. The trilogy is one of many new projects Sunrise is undertaking for the 40th anniversary of the Gundam franchise.

But for diehard fans, it’s been a long time coming. Fans have been clamoring for an animated adaptation of the novels since they came out in 1989. With a story that brings closure to a subplot from perennial favorite Char’s Counterattack along with some excellent mecha designs, it’s not hard to see why everyone’s so excited!
