Sabishi debuted the manga in Gundam Ace magazine in March 2020. Kadokawa released the manga’s initial compiled volume in May 2021, followed by the third volume in November 2022.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash

Tomino authored the three-volume Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway’s Flash novel series between 1989 and 1990. Set in UC0105, the novels revolve around Hathaway Noa, who appeared as the son of the esteemed Federation ship captain Bright Noa in the 1988 film Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack. The series explores the aftermath of the climactic finale of Char’s Counterattack.

These novels also serve as the basis for a trilogy of anime films called Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway. Despite facing multiple delays, the first film finally premiered in Japan in June 2021 and later became an exclusive streaming title on Netflix U.S. starting from July 2021.

Notably, the film is the first Gundam installment since 1988’s Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack to surpass the 1 billion yen mark at the box office. As of October 2021, it has earned a cumulative total of 2,209,628,200 yen (approximately US$19.57 million) in Japan.

In 2021, the project’s director, Shukou Murase, disclosed that the second film might not release before 2024. Currently titled Kidō Senshi Gundam: Senkō no Hathaway: San of Bright, the sequel will feature some deviations from Tomino’s original novel series, according to the film’s producer, Naohiro Ogata.
