Synopsis

Collection of four episodes from the 'Mobile Suit Gandam: The Origin' anime series. In 'The Origin I - Blue-Eyed Casval' (2015) Zeon Zum Deikun (voice of Eizou Tsuda) announces that he will make Munzo independent from the Earth Federation Government, reasoning that humans who have moved into outer space have thrived and evolved. During his declaration, Deikun suddenly falls to his death. Chaos ensues as his deputy, Degwin Sodo Zabi (Jin Urayama) rises to power. In 'The Origin II - Artesia's Sorrow' (2015) the orphaned children of Deikun, Casval and Artesia (Shuichi Ikeda and Megumi Han), have escaped Side 3's Autonomous Republic of Munzo with Jimba Ral (Chafûrin) in tow. Attempting to lead normal lives away from the Zabi family they change their names to Édouard and Sayla but the Zabi family are hot on their heels. When the Zabis sieze power on Side 3, they rename it the Autonomous Republic of Zeon and begin developing a new weapon to defeat the Earth Federation Forces. Will Édouard and Sayla come out of hiding to help to restore order? In 'The Origin III - Dawn of Rebellion' (2016), after having met Char Aznable (Ikeda) who looks like Édouard's double, the two board a flight which is intercepted by Zeon forces. In order to save his friend, Édouard then poses as Char and uses his identity to train as a Zeon cadet. Following a Federation ship disaster, the new Char uses the opportunity to rally his fellow cadets and attack their commanders. In 'The Origin IV - Eve of destiny' (2016) Zabi and Vice Admiral Revil (Hiroshi Naka) agree to remove the Federation forces from Side 3 to stop further atrocities from taking place. On Earth in a city called Manaus, Char is employed as a mobile worker where he meets a young Lalah Suane (Saori Hayami) and endeavours to save her from traffickers.
